Part 2: The Nurse who Loved Me
Undertale really fucked me up. -spoilers obviouslySo I finished my second play-through of Undertale last night. Shit was an emotional roller-coaster. I mean, literally. It's very rare for something to illicit and emotional response from me the way Undertale has. And really I just want to talk about it. I'm going to do it here because r/undertale is full of meanies who like the downvote button too much and the wiki chat is full of nothing but roleplay.
So, here we go.
When I started playing, I instantly connected with Toriel. The one thing I noticed about the game was that all the characters felt incredibly real, despite the 8-bit sprites. It was just something about Toriel's actions and language that really connected with me. Maybe it's because I love that whole child-like innocence and motherly love kind of stuff. I had a bad childhood so that could explain it, but I'm not here to talk about that.
Anyway, I was incredibly sad when the tutorial ended and I had to leave Toriel. I didn't want to. I
Streaming [ended]My make-up stream for saturday is starting in about 15 minutes (5:45 PM CST) and is set to run until 9 pm CST. I would've done it yesterday but I layed down for a nap at 4 and slept for 16 straight hours.
The stream starts at 5:45 to allow joiners to cxome in and the drawing starts at 6. I'm looking to finish my FLuttershy picture and if I don't it will most likely be finished by the next stream.
If you like digitally painted ponies, stoner metal, and hippy jam bands then this is the stream for you!
Streaming [Ended]Doing an Art Stream on Picarto, coloring my latest drawing.
See you there
EDIT: Stream is over, only 1 person showed up, but that kinda sucks for everypony else because it was SorcerusHorserus and we talked about stoner rock and how to draw eyes.
Ask Lonershy HiatusThis isn't an announcement, more so an update on why I haven't updates my ask blog Ask Lonershy in a few months.
I was in talks with EqD about getting the blog featured on their tumblr spotlight and they said the b log was cleared to go up, I'd just need a few pages of content first. That's like 75 posts, and I didn't want to rush the blog with an influx of sub-par posts so I decided to take a break from the blog to practice my drawing.
In the meantime I'm exploring possible story archs, so once I feel satisfied with my skills I will resume the blog and skew it into a more story-driven ask blog.
Just felt like keeping you guys updated.
I'm considering opening up commissions.I ran into problems during my room refurnishing and kinda blew my budget.
I'm considering opening commissions to remedy that, as well as give me some extra practice for home and school drawing. The only problem is I don't know if I'm ready yet. I'm decent enough at sketching, coloring, and shading. The only problem is I'm not up to snuff with the painterly style I want to do yet; also I've never done commissions before.
I don't know. What do you guys think? You've all seen my art and my quick improvements, do you think I'm ready to do commissions? Maybe if I just limit it to sketches and simple coloring?
I've never done this before so I could use some advice.
Being an artist with no audience is arduous.I find I'm alternating between either manic optimism when working onj my own stuff and soul-crushing pessimism when comparing myself to other artists I'm in contact or want to emulate.
I've been told my biggest problem is nself discouragement, but without an audience to even create an echo chamber all I have is my own voice telling me I'm the best writer ever one minute and that I'll never ever get where I'm going the next.
Where does this ride end? I want to get off.
Our Day in Disdain: Chapter 6 TeaserOne, Two, skip a few, here's the teaser for chapter 6. Hopefully it's long enough to make up for the past three chapters:
The in-patient ward was alive with sound; a symphony of machine clicks and beeps, wheezes and susurrations of air ventilators. The halls were filled with such sounds.
Being a small community hospital, Ponyville Hospital didn’t have very many wards, so many of the adult surgery patients were mixed in with the patients that would normally be housed in Intensive Care. But since that Ponyville Hospital was no bigger than the hotel building it converted from, and because the closest hospital was the large teaching hospital in Manehattan, it didn’t have the resources for a separate ICU ward or the time available to send patients to a more specialized hospital; thus, the patients were mixed into a single ward. Resulting in a crescendo of noise that could rattle the brain of anypony who listened for

Collective Feature #20Updates:
Firstly, I want to thank the anonymous user who gave me a 3-month Premium Membership. I don't use the features much, but I like the journal themes, so thank you!
Secondly, I wanted to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! Being at college, nothing excited happened except classes and work, but I did get to help out at a dodgeball tournament our club hosted, so that was kinda fun.
Thirdly, who else enjoyed the 70=80 degree temperatures and gorgeous weather on Friday + Saturday? Cause I know I did! It was short lived (back to rainy, windy, and cool) but I hope you all made the most of it! I drove up to Teatown Reservation to see if there was any growth, but there was very few. They opened up their "Wildflower Island" to the public and I hope to go back in a couple of weeks when things begin to grow more.
I already know it's going to be one of those weeks because this morning I burnt a finger on the

Comissions: Opened o.o!HELLO THERE
YES! I'M MAKING COMMISSIONS. BILLS TO PAY, NEED TO SURVIVE LOL
In all seriousness, I wanna start to make commissions. After talking to Alyssa (walkingmelons on youtube) about prices, I'm leaning towards following her policy. So if you want to commission me here are some details:
A fully colored digital drawing (like this one): $40 (may charge extra if there are more than 2 characters)
A fully colored digital drawing only focusing on the upper body part: $30
Since I'm just starting with the commission thing I wanna take it slowly and patiently, maybe in a future I'll be able to draw only sketched or simple colored drawings which will be cheaper, but for now I'll focus on what I know I can do better. If you are interested, send me a note named "Commission" and then add what you want. I'm thinking I can only take maybe 2 commissions per week to get started, when I get the hang of it I'll probably be able to take more in.
As for the time, it depends. If I'm inspired I might jus
