Happy Coon by xaiGatomon
Happy Coon
Drew this to be a possible new icon haha. As usual extended the canvas past the square just for ease of drawing then ended up drawing a whole thing haha
I feel like the lineart was misbehaving... I wasn't working much smaller than normal but the lines were coming out rather... odd... like they were pixelated but in a really strange way like they were all fuzzy.
I've had it once before and that was on this: Kohaku bath

felt like the chest came out weird. the fluff didn't ease into the bottom enough, which is cus it was kinda improvised. I ended up making the fluffy part bigger than the sketch and then tried to adapt and kinda failed haha.
Kinda wanted to do shading but I felt it might work better for icons without it. things go weird when squished haha.

I don't know what's been happening with me lately. I go to bed every night stressed and angry at myself and swearing that tomorrow I'm going to get as much work done as possible because there are people who need things from me
I am DESPERATE to get my commissions done. because what's it going to be like when I start up the next Sherlock hooves stuff? I have work and patron commissions to do as well and they keep stacking up. Surely I should be able to handle more than one picture a month but somehow not?
I used to put out a picture every couple of days/every day if not more than once a day. now look at me.

I go to bed swearing that when I get up I'll do as much as I can, then I wake up the next morning tired and drained as usual and spend the day too weary to actually do anything. Either I'll jump onto a game for a few minutes and suddenly I'll be stricken with art block AGAIN or I'll actually do some drawing but get little more done than a few bits of a sketch or some lines. I don't know why I can't just sit and work like I used to.
Lately art has been horrifyingly hard for me. when I do it, or anything I just feel like I need to quit. I immediately feel drained and tired, and like I just can't continue until I take a lay down for a while.
Today I started out motivated to do something, then spent half the day sleeping because I was too tired to draw. even when I am up I've just felt so drained of any kind of willpower or creativity.

I still enjoy drawing don't get me wrong but I just... haven't been with it lately.
I mean look at these journals! I used to update all the time and right now as I'm writing this it almost feels nostalgic. It feels like it's been ages since I've posted a real journal. and even when I had finished artwork it took me weeks to actually get round to uploading some of it.

I seriously want to go see a doctor because it is not natural to be this wiped out all the time. I know I sit at my comp all day but that used to be fine! and lately I have been going out for longer walks and eating more healthily and having more fruit and veg (cus I almost never had fruit before)
I swear I get enough sleep, yeah I sometimes stay up til 4am but then I sleep in to compensate. and usually my sleep schedule is pretty consistent, so it's not like irregular sleep patterns are doing it.

I've been trying to force myself to be as productive as possible but the fact is I just haven't been up to drawing lately. things don't feel the same here and I don't really like it.
things have been great in other places, but my art just hasn't been good lately.
I just don't know what to do. I don't know how to motivate myself. sometimes I'll hit a nice little bubble of inspiration and get something done like that pinkie picture but I know it isn't going to last long.

so just... *sigh* I don't know... I guess what I want to say is just to ask if you guys can try and have a little patience. I'm really lost and confused right now but I will do anything I can to try and right myself... art is everything to me and I can't stand it suffering like this... it shouldn't be so hard... it shouldn't be tedious or this much of a challenge just to do simple things... what happened to the hobby I would RATHER do than play games...?
I see other artists diligently drawing away and posting picture after picture and I get angry, nto at them, at myself. Why cant I upload that much content! I used to be able to!
I NEED to get to that point again or die trying.

I'm gonna open slots for a few quick head-shot pictures for £10 each. fully coloured and shaded but no background.
Would anyone be interested?
Here's some examples: sta.sh/22d9upjmwpv7?edit=1

I don't want to be taking on too much work especially with higher priority commissions in the works, but these will be quick and won't take too much time hopefully. heck if anything it should get me working faster haha.
just need some extra funds for things, convention AND a holiday coming up

I'll take these on as I'm ready to do them, so if you want one just say something and maybe send a pic of the character you want and I'll get to you as and when I'm ready.
Technical Difficulties by xaiGatomon
Technical Difficulties
I started this as one of my stream overlays, been needing a technical difficulties one for a while.
I loved the sketch I did for this. may have gone a bit overboard on the atmosphere, but it just felt so empty. I may upload a flat colour later. It was meant to look silly and cute, so I dunno I feel I took away from that with the atmosphere making it look all serious.
Also, props to anyone who can get the reference I was making haha. Here's a clue: Originally there wasn't going to be a plaster on the monitor until I decided to make the subtle reference, or the muffin on the floor.
I could have also added a med-kit. but meh.

Anywho, this is more of me developing my style a little. Trying to change how I draw ponies a little to look taller and more grown-up. I certainly like the style. I think I started this right after my last NSFW piece, which any who follow my NSFW Tumblr will know.
the other sketch for this style reworking happened alongside this one and is also Derpy and will also be going on the NSFW Tumblr. some people who watch my streams may have seen it already so you can look forward to that one haha.
Anyway, relatively happy with the piece, may upload flat colours later out of preference.

Edit: Made the flat colour

Balloons And Laughter by xaiGatomon
Balloons And Laughter
Yaaaay finally out of art block! I just felt like drawing a cute pinkie being her usual loveable, bubbly self. Streamed this for a while, which was nice to do for once since I've been out of it for a while. 
I just listened to a bunch of Pinkie Pie songs and watched a bunch of episodes and it got me nicely inspired haha.
Originally she was going to be booping another pony's nose and there would be a full background but decided to keep it just pinkie being cute.

I once noticed you had an interest in Undertale.
So, I drew this parody picture with my character as Sans and Crystal the Rabbit as Frisk.

The story behind it is Ichigo daring Melody to wear my character's clothes.

I figured you'd think so.
What Naku character do you think I should make as Papyrus (or THE GREAT PAPYRUS)?
