Hey. Again, there isn’t much to say really – which is why there has been a gap in updates again; I keep hoping for the weather to not be crap, and until today, it just has not happened. Unfortunately, I am only just now free of prior/other obligations, and I barely have one day left in the month, which is not enough time to do anything; plus, I am just completely spent as it is from this past week – it was just a mess all around, and my headache is worse just thinking about it.
Adding to that mess last week was Patreon actually coming out of nowhere and flagging my page as adult again for no real reason – due to one year and a half old post and the banner I had been using (Visitor part 3); both of which were there when it was reclassified the first time. There was no direct/explicit nudity in either image, and my requests to the moderator to clarify what the problem actually was, and/or specify the nudity were ignored repeatedly – so I changed the banner to something even more suggestive, in my eyes; with the exact same character, in the exact same outfit – just now with better lighting… and apparently this is fine somehow. (The other post I just had to cut the mega link to a free thing, apparently – which I am not sure is even a thing either; that is not directly specified as a violation of anything that I can find either.) I am so disgusted with Patreon at this stage – both for using and then screwing over 18+ creators when they no longer thought they were needed, and also for their nonsense moderation system… which sadly seems to be a thing in most places now; but when I can honestly say that DA’s moderators were more reasonable/intelligent than Patreon’s, something is just so intensely wrong about that. However, DA did reverse the removal of one of my renders that was flagged as porn for no reason – and Patreon refused to even explain their position with this latest thing, though at the very least they did tell me what post/thing was the problem this time… which they did not do back in December when I had to gut my Patreon page. A minor improvement, but at least it is something, I suppose.
Anyway, I am really, really hoping the weather forecast is accurate this time – the weather has been absolute shit here for over a solid month now, with barely two days of decent weather that I remember. Allegedly, things will be much better for a week or two now, so maybe I can finally get some render work done… but who knows anymore – this past week was the worst I remember in a very long time; 95% humidity, and 110 degrees F in the sun with massive storms every other day.
Once again, the poll could always use more votes – and do remember that you can vote for three characters.
I currently plan to keep this poll up still, and I have no idea when I will be back, or what with – so just stay tuned for something else next month. (If I had been able to stick to my planned schedule, July was an off month anyway – so next month should have some new something… and I am going to really try to get something new done in the near future if at all possible.) For those of you who actually read these updates, and/or checked this far, do look at the old/ex Patreon wallpaper below that I had to remove from my page months ago – so I do at least have something to post here for the moment… even if it is over six years old now. Not sure I will post it anywhere else due to the age, but here that is – at least it is something, I suppose.

Any interest, comments, follows, likes, votes, or support really does help. It is hard to keep making new stuff when nobody seems to care. Following me on DA/slushe/pixiv/twitter/whatever doesn’t cost anything – and that all does help spread the word about my work… so please consider doing some of that if you haven’t already.
