guys i don’t have internet at home
a life without internet is not worth living.
We achieved the $800/page milestone at patreon.
A couple of days ago, and thanks to a little stretch from some really close patrons, we made it to the next milestone.
This milestone means i’ll be able to buy a cintiq 22” hd.
I’m STUPIFIED of how amazing this is, and I cry a little (of happiness!) whenever I think of how great people have been.
To be honest, after all my support of my patrons since I launched the page, getting such a thing wasn’t something “too hard” to achieve. Perhaps a couple of months of saving. But I didn’t want to buy such a premium thing unless I deserved it. I thought to myself “I need to be -this- good if I’m going to treat myself with something like this.”
Cintiqs are not a “Necessity” on my field. It’s more of a luxury. It’s the top of the hardware ladder. Cintiqs (for lack of any similar products of other brands where I live, México) are a rare delicacy. Extremely expensive (almost 500 usd more expensive than in the US, like most electronics down here.) and an exotic sight, only seen on big animation studios or expensive colleges.
IDk, It’s just such a potent symbol of how much i’ve been able to do in my career as indie webcomic artist/porn-bender and how much my audience is pushing me forward with their support and good will to achieve great things. Next milestone I’ll hire a web designer and make a website from scratch for mylifewithfel.com
Thank you. I wanted to dedicate you guys this song.

I know that feel with adventure time. I refused to believe it was actually worth the time it took to say its name when it was everywhere. It was just too much. A year or so down the line I decided to see what the fuss was about and ended up rlly enjoying it. I don't think I would have felt the same if it was still IN YOUR FACE all the time like MLP (or even, for example, homestuck) can be. It seem to come and go constantly.
It’s never the show’s fault. And you can’t really blame people for doing or sharing what they like. I think you can kinda blame to the oversaturation of media and information of the digital era we live in and how easily we can get saturated within it.
Do you hate the Mlp fandom (bronies) or the show its self? or is it both?
The show is Ok, I actually watched the 1st season to see what the fuzz was all about. It’s a good kid’s show. But i still don’t understand the massive popularity of it. You don’t see “bro10’s” or something like that. And ben 10 is just a good kid’s show as mlp :U just to give an example.
Now I dislike the fandom, not for being the fandom, but for how virulent it is. Right now it’s a lot more calm, but one year or so ago, everywhere you went there was PONIES EVERYWHERE. Even in the artists I really liked. which was sad :( The saturation of pony content was too much for me to bear and it made me dislike ponies. Same happens with adventure time.
A few tips everybody should consider. I’ve experienced all those and some more. I’m not good at english but I hope you get it. Go and support some artists out there and let them draw you nice shit. Not as nice as FairyNekoDesu but still will be cool so give them a chance and you’ll be surprised.
All of these things.
Especially the deadline. If you don’t have a deadline thats way in advanced it’s not gonna get done by then. I am almost always taking on a ton of projects at once and sometimes need a break from it to: work on stuff for me, work on stuff for friends, search for jobs, be the work slave of parents, actually relax and try to relief stress, technical difficulties, researching on how to do stuff, ect.
Sometimes it’s done in a day. Sometimes it’s done literally a year later. But I always update the people I work with so they know I haven’t forgotten.
Do NOT rush your commissioner. Let them work at their pace and it will be worth it. Rushing them insures a rush job which will very likely make the quality decline.
All this is true. Also, ref sheets are the most important thing ever. I can’t stress that enough. They make the job A LOT easier (instead of having to compare 10 different pics between each other and see that everything fits, you just look at 1!!) If you plan in commissioning your character a lot, or even if its not yours (like from an anime or something) Either commission one or look for ref sheets of the show (because there are!).
Also i strongly suggest not using Instant Messaging. Information can be lost pretty easily there and it’s hard to come back to it. Use emails instead. The info stays there, and it’s easy to search for it. It’s also an excellent way to keep track of the descriptions, so if either the client or artist made a mistake, you can see the email threads and see who’s right straight away.
also pushy clients LOVE instant messaging. Pls no.
Why do all your characters have such tiny heads? They are so small compared to the huge bodies... I mean yeah, it's a sex game but why make the head so itty-bitty?
Quite ironically, I get complaints that my characters have heads that are too large.
But 4 you I will make an explanation-
It’s to emphasize the scale of assets like breasts, muscles, legs, arms, as their scale is taken to extreme , the object that will always have preset scale - head, will remain intact to help the viewer understand the massiveness of the said humanoid.
This is good to know to those who aren’t in the craft.
That’s why bayonetta has a ridiculously small head.
"My Life with Fel: After-hours is a NSFW sideproject i’ll be doing and updating two times a week -first- on My life with Fel’s patreon page! For all the amazing $5 and above patrons to enjoy.
Patreon is a LONG TERM PROJECT FUNDING WEBSITE I use for my safe for work webcomic, NOT A PAYSITE, where you can support me for every page OF THE REGULAR WEBCOMIC. This page you see here /is a reward/, not what the patreon page is funding per se.
The patrons and I decide where the story goes on this side-comic. They choose who appears, doing what, using what, and how deep… even D:
I will publish these everywhere else too, BUT, 1 week later, and censored, since the whole page is a patron priviledge.
I’ll post these with a 1 week delay from my patreon page; for promotional purposes and nothing else. “
Support my work and allow me to keep making smutty comics! http://www.patreon.com/kennoarkkan
===Page 25! We’re so close to our next stretch goal! I’ll finally be able to afford a cintiq >.<!!
