Looks like I forgot to cross-post my hiatus announcement here.

But first, please enjoy this goofy, suggestive photo I took of some vintage rubber kittens (erasers?) from my childhood.

Bad Kitties

Cross-posted from FA:

TL;DR: Kindly just read the sections which I have bolded for your convenience. ;)

Okay. It's past time to say something. I'm genuinely sorry that I didn't say anything sooner, but I wasn't sure myself what was going on, so I didn't know what to say.

I have NOT disappeared forever.
I am just taking a break.

It was not a planned break; otherwise I would've said something at the beginning.
I do not know how long this break will last, but I WILL resume posting at some point.
...And yes, for those who have been asking, I'm still going to finish the comic. I just don't know when.

Just pretend I've been cryogenically frozen. :P

My life goals and priorities have decided to overhaul themselves without warning me. This happens to me sometimes. It's just the natural rhythm of my growth.

For a time, I considered art to be a job. I was exploring and testing the possibility of incorporating it into my overall career. This exploration led me to discover that, while I love doing it and want to keep doing it for as long as I'm able, it's just not My Thing in that sense.

I'll probably still open for commissions every once in a while (not too often), and I am still interested in doing comics and at least one graphic novel, which, yes, I may try to publish and make some money with. Someday. But art is clearly not the right choice for my full-time activity.

I am busy chasing down the best choice. I'm pretty sure I already know what it is, but I have to put in the work.

This period of my life is for the bullheaded pursuit of various life possibilities. I'm still looking for a regular day job, but on top of that I am also busy doing other activities that demand my attention. I have to do them now, because I probably won't be able to later.

I had to sacrifice something in order to free up the time and energy for these things; I sacrificed art.

I also sacrificed spending time on FA [and this blog!!], so please do not be offended or surprised if I do not respond to you.

It's not for good.
I'll be back.

Yowayowa Camera Woman takes photos of herself floating. Unfortunately, it looks like she hasn't updated her website since spring, but you should go look at her pictures anyway.

Reference/character sheet for Miles the spotted hyena. Her legal name is Emilia, but I would strongly advise against calling her that.

Titties and general nakedness )

Miles is a side character in the comic project I'm developing. She's probably fun/interesting enough to be a main character, but there are only so many protagonists a project can have. Plus, she doesn't really have the complex psychological layers of the others, so... maybe she'll get her own offshoot comic someday. It'd probably be porn.

Remember this guy?

I went ahead and colored him.

The WIPs above amount to about 11-12 hours of work, and I wasn't completely happy with the way it was turning out. Then I got a new tablet, and decided to go for a partial re-do with gentler colors and more intense shadows.

Total completion time was around 20 hours, but because of the partial re-do, only 12 of those hours actually contributed to the final image.

I call them Moonflower and Buzzle. You may call them Femme and Butch. Because they totally are.

And just in case the world needed some coquettish Derpy Hooves, here she is.

A watercolor/marker doodle that would have been done more justice if I'd done it digitally.

Also, I went ahead and got my ass a Tumblr, to see if I like it better than Flickr (or, dog forbid, better than Dreamwidth). If you care, the uncensored versions of the adult/naked pics I've posted here are on there in all their phallic glory.

Outside of that, I don't expect there to be much content posted there that is not posted here. How much I even use the stupid thing will be a matter of trial and error. I have too many accounts on too many sites and services as it is.


howdy and hello there

This is the art, scraps, ideas, commissions, rejects, and projects blog of a so-called artist nicknamed Tao Dog.

Currently I'm active mostly on FurAffinity under the user name "taodog".
