Okay, so. As some of my closest friends already know, my computer decided to take a shit today. At first, I was just having a little hardware lag. Then, after a disk check was interrupted, it refused to allow me to use any of my art programs, at all. My husband and I, thinking it was just a bug, rebooted the thing. At which point it decided it would start, but not... actually start. It would try to load windows and then immediately bluescreen on me. 

We fiddled with it for hours, accomplishing nothing. Ultimately, we removed my hard drive and plugged it in to his computer, to discover that it was having the same problem there. It was about then that we realized I would need a new one. Meanwhile, my CPU Processor has been going to hell for several months now, lagging my games, randomly shutting the computer down, etc. 

We made the hard decision to replace both parts, since I need this computer to work, and because my laptop, while it will allow me to do some things, is not sufficient enough to run my art programs. It's 9 years old, and half the computer this one is. 

Upon arriving at Fry's, we discovered that a 'moderate' Harddrive replacement wasnt an option, as they were completely out of stock in everything except 1 TB and 4 TB. 1TB for me was a downgrade, so we went for the pricier 4TB HD, and went for a moderate upgrade on the CPU, with hopes that this one can actually handle the heavy usage I put it through on a day to day basis with the sheer amount of arting, gaming, and CPU intensive programs I run. 

All in all, this put a fairly large dent in my savings that I was going to use to help us move this July. A $400 sized dent, to be precise, and, that's rounding down.

As of yet, we're still working to recover all the files (My art stores, programs, brushes, Furcadia files, other gaming files, documents, etc) from the old harddrive, but it's a slow process. If all goes well, however, I should be able to recover everything with few to no hiccups. However, I'm now forced to spend the next 2-3 days doing nothing but updates, installs, and re-configuring to get everything back the way it was before, which most likely means I'll be unable to work, let alone play much of anything, until things are sorted out. So, there will be about a week's delay on my commissions and my RP, so I hope you all understand and bare with me as I try to sort this mess out.

That said, expect commission opening to be delayed as well. As much as I need the money, I cannot afford to take on more than I have just now. Many of you have contacted me about commissioning me, or perhaps being added to a sort of wait list, for which I thank you immensely, but my commissions are and will always be first-come first serve, and no waiting list exists. I hate making people wait, which is why I closed commissions in the first place, so that people don't wait in line for months on end as they do with some artists, so making a wait list would kinda completely defeat the purpose of closing in the first place. However, keep your eyes peeled, if you will, on this DA page, as I will be uploading a journal the moment I re-open, and I will be accepting commissions based on whoever sends me their form *first*. Whoever's form I receive first after opening will be at the front of the line, and so on after that.

Thanks for taking the time to read and I hope you all understand!

Nocturnal Animated Port 2015
An animated port for Nocturnal Coyote of furcadia!
This one I am particularly proud of because I had to emulate the 'natural speed' that a flame would flicker at, which took a lot of tweaking, and then, I had to line that up and time the frames for the blink, which was entirely separate- flames and blinks dont occur at the same framerate, so to line up the blink to look natural and for the flame to not skip a beat was especially challenging and fun to accomplish- though it took some math xD

In game, she will not blink quite this frequently, she only does it a few times a minute or so, though I didn't time it. I just didn't feel like adding 60+ more frames into the gif for this showing. You'll just have to click her in game for the real thing ^^

Schaden Collar 2015 by MuddyIXI
Schaden Collar 2015
I decided to redraw Schaden's collar while I had time tonight, I was never really happy with how quickly I did the other one. So, I did a good bit more work on it tonight, basically redrawing, reshading, and recoloring everything except for the back side of it.

I'm pretty happy with how this came out ^^
