I've been thinking about what I want to accomplish art-wise in the near future, and I've come to a few determinations about that. What better time than New Year's Day to announce them? Think of these as my resolutions for 2014.
1. The Lizard Queen Chronicles comic will resume this year. After all, that's what I started this account for in the first place, and I think that's still the best way to present my characters and stories. I'm not going to abandon the other things I like to draw, but I feel like the comic needs to be the central focus of my artwork.
2. I need to work on creating more interesting male characters. I love my ladies, but I'd like to have more of a balance of genders. I have few male characters, and the ones I do have tend to be dull and/or underdeveloped. I think the issue is that I tend to create characters based on sex appeal, and when I do, they're going to be females. I need to learn more about what makes compelling characters and apply that to my own work.
3. I'd like to do some Livestreaming this year. I'm not sure just what I'll be Livestreaming--the comic? Commissions? Random things I feel like drawing? Maybe a little bit of everything.
4. This isn't really a resolution, but I think I'd like to continue the story of Yofi losing her boot in the elevator doors. Feel free to post your ideas and suggestions if you have any.
Art still owed:
SabreXT - Blarga comic, Leanna "teaching" pic.
WolfenX - 1 commission.

I will take commissions. I don't actively solicit them, but you're welcome to note me about them. I don't have a price list posted because it's not finalized yet, but I will get back to you with a price. I take Paypal, checks, and money orders.
I am open to art trades. If you want to do a trade, send me a note with your proposal and we will discuss. As for requests, I normally only take them if I love your idea so much that I absolutely have to draw it, but for special occasions (which will be announced in my journals), I do make exceptions.
Suggestions on how I can improve my art or my characters are always welcome.
Also, please be advised that I do not RP. I can't even figure out how a normal person is supposed to act in the real world, so forget about me playing an imaginary creature.
Other artists' drawings of my characters:
Eggplantm drew me a great picture of Turja with his character Taurus (top left) as a prize for winning a guessing game. I liked it so much that I commissioned him to draw Austra (top center-left), Sadie (top center-right), Ambiri (top right), Turja and Lacerta together (bottom left), a whole bunch of my ladies out on the town (bottom center-left), and a poster for Austra's movie "Agent Pink" (bottom center-right). I can't stop paying this guy to draw my characters! I also got Ming (bottom right) for entering his Zodiac fanart contest.
Also check out these two from Itchyscratchy:
On the left is a sweet-looking Sadie, and on the right is Lacerta with his character Beak Freak Geek.
And JoshuaVillaniStudios did a nice pretty Turja for me:
Zombies love stealing Loopy's shoes! Finally, this awesome gift art from Souzousha featuring Austra with his character Zuriel:
