News & Updates

UPDATE 05/10/16:

Time for an update, I think - It's been over four months, and quite a few things have happened since I've moved to Aussie!

Firstly, and probably most importantly, is that mid-August, Kuurokaze and I had the pleasure of Gleaming-Hope visiting us, and not only that, but the big dork also proposed to me the first decent chance he got alone with me. 
Before anyone asks, of course I didn't say yes. It was 'I think you know the answer to that one' XD so well, it was a yes I suppose, but in typical me fashion that just can't help but be a total shit, more or less ~ 

'When's the wedding?' Aaahhaha good question - We don't even have a continent in common at this stage, so we're still working out the logistics of this whole operation. :'D We'll keep you posted. 

Jobfront - Weeeehhh this hasn't gone particularly well like I'd hoped |'D All the local print companies hit a drought or jobs thanks to election, and I've been trying to avoid retail work like the plague (been there, done that, customers are HORRIBLE, and I would really like to never go back) but there's not been much luck at all with behind-the-scenes work. |'D Fingers crossed something turns around soon though. :')

Inktober - Decided I'd actually try it for the first time this year. I've not got much in the way of decent pens left after the move (ie, none :'D) so it'll be a bit cheap, but I'm looking forward to getting through it all anyway. I plan to upload them in weekish blocks, a spread of 7-8-8-8 to get them into four uploads over the month. I hope you enjoy seeing them!

And then looking ahead a bit, like all good Pokémon nerds, I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Sun and Moon soon, and will be attempting to complete Sun's story in under 10 hours to smash my personal record for Y :'D 
I'll put out the warning now, that BFOI's DA chat will be a spoiler zone through my playthrough in that first week. :'D 
However, if you're all for the spoilers, then I am all good to hang out, and I'll be aiming to complete the Alolan Dex on both versions within a few days if anyones wanting dex or general game info in a hurry - during my XY runs, I actually completed most sections of the game and had the dex filled faster than thanks to a timezone headstart and midnight release, something that I was quite pleased about, although unfortunately, there's no way to really prove how far I got and when, as both XY have been reset since then. :'D 

But that's all my news for now - As usual, I'm hanging around in BFOI's chatroom, so feel free to drop by there now and again ~

That's all from me, see you around ~

FAQ About Taz

A: WHEN I FREAKING GET TO IT 8U I'm a terrible procrastinator, haven't you figured that out yet? |'D
Some comics, in particular, old OCT rounds that have long since finished, will not be added to if they've been cut off abruptly. I do not own the rights to use any opposing characters, especially when it's years after the fact.

Q: Why do your two groups keep switching between hiatuses?
A: Because life requires money to obtain food, shelter, power and internet, and money comes from working a full time job 40+ hours a week. BFOI and BtGS each require on top of that roughly 20+ hours a week to maintain at full steam all the time, and that is not humanly possible for me. My own well being takes precedence over anything in the group at all times. While I always make efforts to work as fast and as much as I can, this does often lead to delays in work coming out. This applies to everyone in both of my teams, as they are all very hard workers or in full time study and in much the same position as I am.

Q: Why don't you reply to every single comment? Do you think you're better than us or something?
A: What? No. Jeezus. I don't reply much because I don't need to have the last word in every single conversation, nor am I the type to reply/comment if I have nothing to add to what's already been said. Not to mention, Pkmn fans can get a bit weird at times, and some outright obsessive, demanding to tell me all about their metagame mons that can apparently kick my ass (here's a hint: IDGAF) I don't hate you people, I just prefer to go about dA more quietly than most.

Q: 'You should hurry up and draw ____!'
A: Do NOT nag me for comic updates because such statements almost always have the opposite intended effect.

Q: Can I draw your characters?
A: There's a couple of answers to this;
- As Cameos or part of an OCT round, Yes, go ahead. By joining an OCT, you are giving permission for your character to be drawn within context of that group, and my characters are no exception to that.
- General fanart or giftart, Yes, I'm always happy to receive it. I'm flattered that people would spend time and effort on me outside of OCTs (where really, you're only drawing other's OCs because you have to :'D).
My only 'condition' is that you try to keep my OC's as in-character as is possible. I've seen some tragically bad interpretations of Taz/Ty over the last year, so I'll just remind people that they are not a textbook anger-management case, they're actually a very defensive person with a lot of past trauma. Anger is a secondary emotion, meaning, that to become angry, they had to be upset by something first.

HOWEVER - If you've been blocked from my account, then NO, you do not have permission to draw my characters. If I've blocked you, then I have my reasons for doing so and I do not want to be involved with you in any way.

Q: What gear do you use?
A: Currently using a MacBook Pro Laptop, Photoshop CC, Intuos4 Tablet. I rarely draw on paper, unless it's to doodle absentmindedly, or plan out a complicated scene/layout.

Q: Can I be your friend?!?!
A: In all honesty, too many people have stabbed me in the back, so I don't open up to newcomers very easily anymore. If it's meant to happen, it will. Please don't try to force it. There's a wall there for a number of personal reasons.

Q: Do you roleplay?
A: Not really, no. I'm not that good at it due to my comic-writing (ie, I God-mode almost constantly without realising it), which makes it unenjoyable for both myself and the people who've somehow managed to drag me into it.

That's all I can think of, but if I get asked more stuff, I'll be sure to add it.

Just curious but are we going to be seeing any Alolan pokemon on Taz's team in the future?

I don't know if you answer these kinds of questions, but what game did you pick out of Sun and Moon? Who was your starter? What was your team?

Hope you're doing okay, Taz.  I heard about that earthquake that hit close to New Zealand, so wishing for your safety.
