Do to some unfortunate events, I am staying with my brother for a time. Long story short: bed bugs. Sadly, we have to toss out most everything and the worst of it, for me, is that I had to purge my drawings before anyone sees them. This means that not only did I lose everything I made before, the big project I was working on for the last few weeks is gone. I am not happy.

I'm sorry if people were expecting something soon. I'll be ok and I hope to start over when things settle down. For now, this sucks.
Hi everyone. Wanted to give an update so people know I'm still around.

Creation wise, I've had a bunch of starts. I'm sorry that I haven't been active at all and please believe me when I say I'm still trying and I love when you guys send me messages. Creation wise, I'm currently working on something and it might be too ambitious than I'm ready for but right now, I'm enjoying it. I will say that I'm out of practice so they may not be that attractive from a technical standpoint, but I think the important thing for me here is to just get it out there.

That is pretty much it, just wanted to say hi.
Hey guys, its been a long while since I've posted so I figured I'd give an update.

No new projects right now, I have been given a few cool requests but I haven't been able to really work on anything. I know I sing this song a lot, but I've been too tired. I've actually had blood work done to see if there was anything there that could be something that hints at a reason. Both the good and bad news is that they couldn't find anything wrong. Not really much else to say there.

I have started to play Guild Wars 2. I have to say, I enjoy it. I've tried a bunch of MMO's in the past and this is the first one that I've really liked. I played City of Heroes some but only really liked the character creation. In GW2, I very much enjoy the gameplay. Right now I'm leveling an Asura Guardian, Flash Cogbottom (Lvl 21 as f this posting) on the server Ferguson's Crossing when I get a moment. 

Anyone play?
Hey guys, wanted to try my hand at a short sequence of the "Artist changing the Character" deal you guys have probably seen around, so here it is.

Not much to report in the life of Dayeandknight, which isn't a bad thing. Just means I don't have much to say for now, so I guys I'll see you guys later.
The newest sequence is based one of the plot threads over at Writing.com. For the sequence to make any sense you may need to read that first.

Really been wanting to get something out for you guys so here we are.
Hey guys, just wanted to give you a little update.

I've been adding a few entries to my stories over at writing.com to attempt to jump start some creativity and I invite anyone interested to add their own entries if you would like to.

I'd like to give another shout out to Vanilla Thunder, who has been very active making updates.

I was working on a sequence request and finished the pencil/inking stage but have been really disappointed with how it turned out. I'm not sure I'm going to finish. I only bring it up to let you guys know that I am still drawing, even though I am hitting a few bumps.

The drawing tablet I bought a while ago may have been a bad idea. I've invested a large amount of time into relearning how to draw with it and made no progress at all. At this point I don't know if I should keep working with it or not.

I got a copy of "RPG Maker XV Ace" a little while back. Still have no idea how to use it and I can't seem to find a tutorial I can sit through. If anyone has had experience with it, any tips or tricks would be super helpful.

That's about it, just want to let you know I'm still hanging around.
Hey yall, just wanted to post something and figured I shout out to some writers  on writing.com you guys might like to check out. They have some stories that I've added to and some have been kind enough to add to mine.

Has anyone tried out any drawing apps? A little while back I picked up an ipad and I was curious if anyone has had any experience with any of the drawing apps? I'm hoping that if I can find a good one, I might be able to practice more.
Still nothing from me, but have been given permission to add Vanilla Thunder's threads to my stories to my gallery. Thought you guys would enjoy.
Hi everyone. It has been a while since I've added an update so I thought I'd let you guys know that I'm still around. No news for new projects, I just want to say hi.

I picked up some new books on character design and I'm super excited to really work on my drawings. I find my characters lack an expressive quality that I feel need improving, so I'm doing my best to address that. I've also decided that I want to try to incorporate influences from the old Disney films. I've only just started, so no real progress has been made just yet. Here are some of my new doodles dayeandknight.deviantart.com/a…

To help put into practice some of the things I've learned, I'm thinking about going over my old project "Thief" fav.me/d1iuku4 and seeing how I could improve some of the "Acting" of my characters and really push the expressions. I don't have an ending for it so don't get your hopes up for a completed project (the original was just for me when I thought I was the only person that did this type of thing. I didn't have an ending in mind, I just wanted to draw a guy getting dressed up... some things never change).
Hello everyone. Thanks for all for the comments on the last sequence, I'm happy to see you guys enjoyed it.

This post is going to be a little personal but long story short, I'm temporarily putting all projects on hold for the moment.

Last night a good friend of mine passed away. He was the guitarist in my band and in fact was the reason the band formed. Right now I don't know much about what happened but it is looking like he may have taken his own life, I don't know. I'm going to need so time to deal with this whole situation, so I'm just going to need to step away for a little bit. When things have settled down and I feel like making stuff again, I'll be back.

Thanks everyone, I hope to see you again soon.
Like I said in the first image, its been almost 3 years since uploading "Auto Closet". Though I uploaded other stuff first, I consider it my first real sequence. I thought it would be fun to revisit the characters I've made over the years and I must say it was fun. I think I've improved somewhat in the last few years, though I've still got loads to learn. Thanks everyone for all of your encouragement and enthusiasm.
Ah, the assembly line. Not just a favorite of mine, but the very first tg related thing I was exposed to. Most of us know of a certain Rooster that got caught up in a certain Dog's trap and when I saw that cartoon, I knew I found something awesome. I really wish I could find more like it. If you dig the assembly line stuff, check out TGTony's work tgtony.deviantart.com/ you won't be disappointed.

"Some Assembly Required" is a sort of spiritual sequel to "New You", what with the robot arms and all. I hope you all like it.
Last night I decided to post the writing from my "Lets Have a Ball" on writing.com and chyoo (which I haven't used in forever). After that I started to think, "maybe I should post it on fictionmania?". I've never posted there before, but I've always kind of wanted to.

Would anyone like to edit the text for it? I'm sure I've made plenty of errors that I just don't see. If you want, just send me a note with your email and I'll send the collected story.
Boom! New request complete.

Just wanted to take everyone for all of the favs and kind words I've been getting. You guys rock.

I've been really happy the way these last two requests turned out, specifically the backgrounds. Normally I have a real trouble with them but these just worked out.

There have been some requests that I do longer sequences that show more of the dressing. I'd like to, but I always lose steam when I'm doing them and I don't want to do what I did during "New You", which almost didn't finish. Maybe if I or someone else comes up with an idea that I really like, I might do one. Until then, I'm going to have to keep them short.

That said, I'm open to more requests. I may not end up doing them but I'm always willing to read ideas.

I still haven't worked on the pokemon story at all so I apologize to anyone that has been wanting to see that. If you have been following me then you know I'm horrible at completing anything (like I said above), which is sad because I really thought this one was moving along.



Outside of the tg word, by band has been getting busy. We have been getting a nice little hand full of small gigs. Who knows what will happen with that, but I'm having fun with it for now. Other than that, nothing really has been happening so I guess that's all for now.

I need to come up with some kind of sign off catch phrase...
Welp, I'm back! I think I have a good idea where I want to take "Pokemon: Lost and Found" with a big thanks to Mancusio, who had a lot of incite on the project. For those that aren't really into the writing, you might like to know that I'm setting up the groundwork for another short sequence by request.


Now for personal stuff, for those that are interested.


The show went great, much better then I was expecting. For those that don't know, I was in "Hairspray" as the character Edna, the lead's mom. I was given a lot of compliments and positive feedback which really made me feel great. Now that that's done things have been slowing down, allowing my sanity to return (what little I had to start with).

My band and I have started recording so I hope that I might have an album or two when its all down. I've actually started writing a video game themed album now as well and plan to use it to raise money for the charity "Child's Play". Hopefully I can do it.

My birthday just went by, which marks a full year of being officially single. I've been trying Okcupid for a good long time but I'm not really having any luck with it. That said, I think I'm okay with it. Besides, there is always tomorrow and who knows what might happen?

I have recently started to change my diet for the better! I'm taking it slow, adding certain things to my diet that I don't normally eat and making small changes to things I already it. (replacing white bread with whole wheat, milk with 1% low fat milk). I'm not expecting to lose weight (I've been 260lbs for as long as I can remember), but I am hoping for more energy. That might even get me to produce more things here.

I think that's most of it. Hope to see you guys soon with some more tg related material. Later ya'll.
I bought myself some new pens and pencils along with "How to Draw the Marvel Way". I loved that book as a kid and decided to pick it up purely on the power of nostalgia. Fueled by my purchases and have some free time so I went ahead and made a new sequence based on a request a few months ago.

"Hairspray" is going to be coming to a close at the end of the month, so I'm going to have some free time again! I was thinking about doing some more requests as well. If you have requested something before and I haven't done it yet, please remind me, I may have forgotten. I'm going to try and be a bit more organized and consolidate them(the requests) in one file so I won't forget again. So if you have an Idea, send me a note with what you would like to see.

I haven't given up on the pokemon story. No real develoupment yet, just wanted to say that I fully intend to finish it. After that, I think "Miss Identified" is long overdue for an ending. I think I might just end it with an epilogue and put it to rest since I've had nothing for it for what? 8 months now? "Haunting, isn't it" as well as the other stories are probably going to remain unfinished defiantly, unless something magical happens.
Just put up my ID, finally. I've been messing with it on and off for a while so I'm glad to be done. I wish I could have put the full thing on my page but It doesn't look like I can, so I put the full one in my gallery.

I've been trying to add more to "Pokemon: Lost and Found" but I've been having a lot of false starts. I'm going to keep trying until I get it right, so I hope that it is done soon.

Thank everyone that wished me well on the show and the audition. The show went well enough, and luckily I got my lines down before the opening so all went smoothly. I also got the part of Edna for Hairspray, so that is going to be interesting, I tell yea.
I just got back from my first rehearsal of a theater production at my old college.

Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

Monday I was contacted by an old cast mate saying that my old teacher needed my help for a show. Of course I swing into action, gallant as I am, and what happens? I am charged with two characters to be and, wait for it.......... the show opens next week. That's less then two weeks to learn all the lines for two different characters. So yea, I'm scared.


After that my old teacher wants me to try out for the part of the mother, Edna, for their next production "Hairspray".


I wanted to try and get back into full writing speed, but fate keeps setting up road blocks.
I was finally able to get my laptop to charge the other day so there as been a new addition. I know that a lot of people wanted me to have the characters go to Celadon, but I really felt like I have been really under using Pikachu and I think the mouse wouldn't be ok with whats been going down. I still want to hear your thoughts about where you would like the story to go and all ideas are welcome.
I uploaded some new images today. They are npcs from my "Changeling: the lost" game, a roleplaying game about people that have been snatched from their lives and changed by the Fae against their will. I know its not my normal stuff, but I really wanted to work on them. If anyone likes them, I have more that I'd like to share, so let me know if you are interested.

I'm still trying to figure out what color to make my ID costume. I still can't make up my mind, even after all of this time. I inked my original and recolored it, and added new options. fav.me/d3j46ak


In finance news, I'm working again which explains why my tg/cd stuff as come to a hault. I've hardly any time to do everything in need and want to. I've started to drink coffee (more like hot chocolate with some coffee in it) to keep my energy up but its not really helping that much, sadly. Since I'm back at work, however, I've been picking up some much needed upgrades: New scanner/printer, new computer chair and new computer parts!

I picked up the new Batman game and love what I've seen so far, though I haven't had much time to play it. I'm also planning to grab Skyrim when my computer has been properly equipped.

My laptop's charger stopped working so I haven't been able to use the lap top, which is what I use to write on, so hopefully I can find a new charger and get back to finishing some of my stories. I'm really excited to see where Ash/ley's story goes next!

Ok, there is more, but this has gone long enough. Hope to have some new things for you guys soon.
