Where To Start Reading ~

Due to partaking in OCT's constantly for the last few years, my work is a little disjointed as the general idea with the OCT format is to respond to whatever prompts are given. This usually leaves a story gap between comics making them jump awkwardly from one bit to the next as parts of the story are contained elsewhere.

Depending on which OCT run you want to read, the first place to look is the character ref/app, as I link each round comic and interlude into the AC.

For further info about the BFOI challenges, you can read a summary HERE, which gives a brief overview of the key points of each round throughout our previous challenges, as well as linking to the necessary journals for more in-depth info. This will be updated for the Y3 story comes to an end in June this year.

Have fun reading ~

News & Updates

UPDATE October '17:

Been a bit of radio silence from me last twoish weeks, but a quick update for everyone: I'm pleased to say that I've finally relocated to a new home after a bit of travelling and partying (haha yeah, party at a wedding, it totally counts), and am now based in Canada with Gleaming-Hope at last. The stay is still technically temporary at present, so come April there may be more travel shenanigans courtesy of the government and visa departments and the like, but for now, while I'm here, and subsequently not a resident or on a work permit just yet, I have time to draaaaw. And draw I will.

First though, back to unpacking, and doing all the adult stuff I need to do before I can pretend to be a fulltime webcomic artist. :'D Once that's done, it's then off to clear my inbox from the backlog that's worked itself up, and check to see if Franz got any nice cameos anywhere ahahaa :'D then it's all onto organising myself a schedule to get through the list of art work just hanging out to be attacked ~

See ya 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.
