Salam, all.

Plan of the Week - 24NOV-30NOV

*Enabling Objectives

-Passed exams
-Beginning contact flight events first week of December
-Current commissions - all sketched and prepped to cut back on wait times
-Current commission wait times - 2 weeks to 1 month
-Thanksgiving holiday (US)


*Training Updates

First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone who wished me well with my triple-threat-triad of exams last week!  They were hard-hitters, but I aced them all!  I came home after the last one and slept for a good fifteen hours straight - everyone in my class did, haha.  Checking my page on here and seeing all the support was so encouraging, I really appreciate it!

I must report, however, that I have another exam on Monday, right when I get back from Thanksgiving holiday, (there goes my weekend again.)  It's not as humongous as an exam, but it's still an exam, and failure is not an option.

Following that exam, I will begin my flight events.  For the first couple weeks, I'll be undergoing rigorous cockpit and checklist familiarization, (aka, memorizing a checklist a book long and getting yelled at by Marines...  Oh yeah, I did that last part at OCS already, so no surprises there,) before I actually get to fly again.  Can't wait!  I'll have to warm up that snazzy little GoPro I hinted at on my Tumblr a few weeks ago... ;)


*Commission Updates & Future Openings

I actually got most of what I needed to get done, art-wise, yesterday, so this is more so a big update for everyone.  I got all my time-sensitive pieces done and shipped out, whoo!  No more time-sensitive pieces until further notice, though, at least those with a deadline of less than one month.  With my schedule, I just can't guarantee when I'll be able to get around to finishing them, and especially mailing them, if that's needed.

On that note, I have two Ultimate Ref Sheets in progress now - I have the backgrounds, info boxes, and the smaller details, (silhouettes, prints, wings, etc,) done on those.  Other than that, all of my commissions I took on in my last batch, as well as some others, are in progress in some way shape or form.  I've been trying to 'umbrella' myself by doing a bunch of sketches, doing a bunch of lines, then flats, etc, rather than finishing one piece straight through, just in an attempt to cut back on the wait times for as many pieces as I can.

As far as journal batch openings go, I likely will not be taking any more for the rest of 2014.  You are free, of course, to note me to inquire about any piece you have in mind, and I'll let you know if I can take it on now or if it would be better to hold off.  For example, smaller pieces like icons, sketches, pawprints, and even flats and badges, I can usually fit into my schedule.  However, ref sheets, (of all types,) full body shaded pieces, backgrounds, multi-character pieces, and character designs will take a rain check for my next round of openings.

My current wait time for all pieces is still anywhere between two weeks to one month.  All current commissions will be completed before Christmas.


*Thanksgiving Holiday

Here's an early Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow 'Muricans!  May you spend this holiday with friends and family or solo, whichever you prefer, and with your dinner of choice and a well-deserved drink.

I myself will be visiting some family from various parts of the state, all of whom I haven't seen for...wallah, a few months now.  Time flies when you're an aviator, I guess, hahahahaha.  I'll be busy consuming my body weight in candied sweet potatoes and festive-flavoured spirits and doing more fishing in one day than any normal human being should be permitted to do.  And studying, of course, for that exam on Monday. *kicks the nearest T-6*


*Closing Remarks

If anything else major comes up in my training that would cause extra delays or change any of my estimated commission completion and opening times above, I'll note current commissioners directly and update my journals, respectively.

When I'm fried and need to look at things other than airplanes, I make small updates and reblog pretty pictures, usually of more airplanes, on my Tumblr here: twilightsaint.tumblr.com/

In other news, there's a tiny...tiny...mini chance that I'll be going to MFF.  I won't know for sure until maybe a few days beforehand, in which I'll be completely frazzed out and try to bum a ride on one of our local F-35s.  (Or...that...SR-71 that's in the neighborhood...I got my eyes on you, son!)  If I do manage to go, I'll be debuting two new suits, one a partial of my wolf-shark, Sarge, (pics coming soon!) and two, a fullsuit of my Angel Dragon Spirit!  Fingers crossed she's done by then! *nervous*

Badge Comish - Max by TwilightSaint
Badge Comish - Max
~~~

Realistic shaded badge commission done for MaxTheShadowDragon over on FurAffinity, featuring his scalesona, Max!

I had such a freaking blast working on this guy, and I think this is one of the coolest badges I've done to date!  Max wanted me to have him wearing his goggles, as he's rarely shown actually wearing them over his eyes, and I LOVED giving him that combination ferocious-snarky dragon grin!  It's just a face that says, 'Bring it!'  So with the goggles, I wanted to put him in sort of a battleground background, what with some flames and dust going on behind him.

Thanks a lot, Max!  Hope you like it!

Part 2/3 of a commission for RaveTheHusky of FurAffinity, this piece a realistic shaded badge of his fursona, Rave!

Dang, I seriously think this is one of my coolest con badges done to date.  I loved working with Rave's colours and textures, and of course had to throw him in a dance party with the laser lighting!

Thanks, Rave!  Hope you like!

Paw Comish - Chimera Claws by TwilightSaint
Paw Comish - Chimera Claws

Cell shaded paw icon commission for :iconk--o: of their cool dragon-gargoyle-feline character, Pantz!

This guy is such a cool combination of critters!  These paws were really interesting to work on.  They're more feline in how they're built, but I gave him a bit extra long toes and claws to show the dragon side, and some 'thumb-like' dew claws down there to show off the gargoyle side.  I also tried to give the pads extra texture, to show the thick, draconic skin contrasting with the thin fur.

Thanks, K--O!  Hope you like them!

"Wallah, let me be fast and accurate.
Let my aim be straight and true
And my hand faster
Than those who seek to destroy me.
Grant me victory over my foes
And those that wish to do harm to me and mine.
Let not my last thought be,
'If only I had my gun.'
Wallah, if today is truly
The day that you call me home,
Let me die
In a deep pile of brass."
