I can say it already: the support for my first downloadable creation has been ENORMOUS so far and easily surpassed all my expectations

You guys :heart:

All I can do in exchange is stay active and keep pumping out fresh content for everyone to enjoy

I believe I'm gonna stick to PWYW model, because as many times my senpai Slugbox said, this makes it available for everyone to enjoy, there is no premium "elitist" content and paywalls, yet people showed enough support to keep me interested in this subject

THANK YOU ALL, OMG

If you somehow missed it, here you can get your copy: Choice of Ponies vol1 OUT NOW by FoxInShadow

(I'm sorry for the Free Daily Checkout Limit, but there isn't much I can do about it. Just wait one more day or throw me a penny :meow:)
Details here, along with a checkout page: Choice of Ponies vol1 OUT NOW by FoxInShadow

Long story short, this is sort of a test for me. More support=more of such content in the future. 

I am open for your suggestions for future projects. Love you all :heart:
Happy news all around. I should be able to release my small saucy art pack soon, just to test things and the interest of people.

Also, I brought back the sketches in the only way possible. Details here: Sketch/icon commissions by FoxInShadow
It's been a while since I announced anything, so here's an update on things: I don't have much planned for this month, so I am still open for incoming offers. Just in case you missed the commission announcement.

Small, saucy art pack is under construction and it should be ready soon. I just have to prepare one more teaser ;) And set up e-junkie account...

If you ordered something from me already and it's not been done yet, don't feel forgotten! I can work more fluently as of noe, so all should be ready soon.

As always, I'm just gonna remind you that any of you who wanna work with me, should read the rules first:  Important changes in commission policy PLEASE READ
This annoys me as much as you, but this is forced on me rather than chosen, so let's overcome these obstacles together, shall we?
The changes are as follows:
:bulletred:The prices are going to be increased slightly in order to fit better to my local tax law. I really don't want to get you into details of that. Check out the current price list: 
:bulletred:First time you place an order you will have to sign "Contract to perform a specific work" with me. This includes sharing personal data with me (but you'll get mine in exchange...) and also you'll have to send me a scan of a signed page. Photo will do as well.
This is completely normal among freelancers, imagine you are treated like a company ordering art assets from me. I need a paper for that.
All the personal data is completely safe with me, as I don't have any interest in sharing it. Still, it's required.
I need this only once. If you or


And another reminder, KairaAnix is also accepting new orders, soooo check her out
In order to pump up my workflow, I will be giving you about 3 hours of streaming on an (almost) daily basis :meow:

From now on, livestream will usually start at 2:00 PM West Coast (5:00 PM East Coast). As usual, I will be announcing every single one.

Well, I guess that's all. Carry on~

Ehhh... after I saw some positive feedback under my recent Aloe and Lotus, the old desire to make a comic strip returned. The thing is, I've never been making this kind of publisher work and I'm completely focused on my single-drawing commission works, as this is my main target right now.

But, I thought "why the hell not, let's take it for a spin". However, I can not afford to invest all my time into a project that might not even pay off. This all might sound like a cold calculation, but that's life, folks.

So, this is why I decided to give it a test by creating a small art pack in my free time. If this kind of work goes fluently, I might switch to that instead of a comic. But I can't determine it myself, this is where you step in.

Most likely all of my content will be Pay What You Want, so you can get it even for free since I was always uploading my works without any charge. 

However, I am not gonna lie that every penny keeps me alive and working for your enjoyment. You're a great audience and all the feedback pumps me up to do more.

So, have a sneaky-peaky of what you can expect in August (if everything goes well)

Hello. I'll make this quick. I have one project going on and I need to know the literal translation of the word "Sorachi". I know this is the name of a subprefecture in Japan: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorachi_…

I am just very curious if it does have any meaning behind it. Thank you all in advance~
First come, first served. Although they may take a while to complete, as I am still dealing with older works.

Please read the price list and the additional info: Price list by FoxInShadow

I need this only once. If you order two or more art pieces at a time, it does not require separate contracts

:bulletred: But there are good news What do you exactly get in exchange for all of that?

Treated as a Contracting Party, you receive much more right in terms of art redistribution.

You practically own the piece you ordered. So you can sell these rights to anyone. You can create prints. Or help me hunt down art thefts. You don't have to ask me for permission to upload it on any website. You can even tell me to take down the picture and keep it private. Anything.

*********

Phew! There you have it! I hope all of that is clear. If you have any questions don't hesitate to write me.

And please show some understanding, this is the main reason behind all of my recent stress and generally I am quite happy to announce these new rules. They'll help me in creating some financial history during my freelance artist endeavour. During the past years you've been showing incredible amounts of positive feedback that kept me working, and I hope to keep it that way (:

Thank you all~

I'm a long time dA user and it's my primary art site. But what happens in last few weeks really makes me cringe. I've been there for about 6 years now, yet I don't remember a single time when so many errors occurred on a daily basis. The entire site is unavailable for at leat few hours a day for me, and when it's up it doesn't allow me to upload my works.

As much as I love dA it is highly unprofessional that the admins can't sort this out for weeks now. I suspect a huge DDOS attack. 

If you have similar troubles, I suggest checking the site status constantly: www.isitdownrightnow.com/devia…

Also, I wanted to ask, on what other art sites would you like to see me? I already use tumblr and FurAffinity besides dA.

Back to the work I go!

I will be sure to let you know how my paperwork goes once I get an update, I might have more info and details on Monday. This stresses me out more than you could imagine, but as always I am thankful for your endless support! :heart:

What I know already, is that the commission process might get a little more complicated than "hey, here's my paypal". Freelancing does involve some paperwork, but we can do it, right?

I am pushing forward new commission policy, but I gotta admit that the paperwork is slowing me down.

So here I am offering few slots before I finally switch to the new rules, first come, first served. Based on complexity I might accept few more commissions so just write me!

And yes, still using old price list
It just annoys the hell out of me that my uploads show up with no description what so ever -____- Not the first time this happens...
Some big, important changes coming up, stay tuned! Details will follow soon.
I apologize in advance for any inconvenience, but this mostly has to do with me receiving several payments in the same time.

I would greatly appreciate if you could check back on your payment history and make sure you sent everything my way. If I did not write you back, please send me a reminder with your paypal information.

Thank you all for your patience.
Commission are NOT CLOSED, but I got quite a lot of requests and completing them will take some time, so if you write me, then please take into consideration that it might take me a while to get back to you.

Thank you all for your understanding, Fox is off to drawing all these WIP sketches~~
