Galacon Done and Dusted

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 2, 2015, 11:02 AM

Galacon was phenomenal.



It only ended 90 minutes ago, but feels like it was weeks ago already.
And I have to say, despite ALL the worries I had about it, it was an absolutely amazing experience.


My first ever convention, my first time ever doing a panel and hell, it was even my first time meeting other people who were interested in the fandom!
Despite a shaky start at the beginning of the first day, since I was pretty overwhelmed by everything that was going on, overall I think I didn't do too bad!

Met some awesome artists here on DA, such as FoxInShadow , Coltsteelstallion, EStories, drawponies and many more!

I finally got to meet the guys of EQD in person, in particular, calpain, who I first met on KnowYourMeme all the way back in 2012; that was pretty fucking cool!

And I met some wonderful people who were a fan of my comics here.
It's both incredible and awkward when someone, in person, tells you how much they appreciate what you make, and hell, some even said that I was an inspiration to their work that they create now, some even wanted autographs; I can't even begin to describe how meaningful and awesome that is in person. :')

Hell, everyone at the convention was just so down-to-earth and kind; HELL, WE RAISED, LIKE, €30'000 EURO IN THE CHARITY AUCTIONS THERE! :dummy:



And of course, my first time doing a panel. 
Despite the inconsistencies in the brochure/website timetable, there was a much bigger turnout than I was expecting!
For a first timer, I think it didn't go too badly, but I've learned many ways to better manage my time and what to do during the panel.
(The panel of the wonderful Tabitha St. Germain and a stellar cast who did a lil' something special went on a little bit longer than originally anticipated, which bit into my own panel time, but man, was it worth it!)
It's a starting point, and hopefully if I do more panels in the future, I'll improve at doing them!



So now, as Acesential so eloquently put, I'm in the Post Con Depression state.
BUT ON THE FLIP SIDE
It makes me really, REALLY, wanna hit up BUCK 2016, as well as basically EVERY CONVENTION EVER.




Flying home tomorrow afternoon, and by Tuesday morning, things should slowly return to normal, making more comics and whatnot for you awesome people.

But man.



That was something special.

Made my way from Frankfurt to Stuttgart today, and now I'm painstakingly close to the Convention Centre.



BUT REAL TALK


I totally forgot to bring my laptop's mouse...and I've a panel on Sunday... GG WP

Anyone heading to Galacon wanna lend me a mouse for an hour? :'D
I kinda fucked up on that part.




BUT REGARDLESS, it oughta be interesting!
First time doing any type of con; let's see how horribly wrong things can go :la:

I'll see some of you around the place tomorrow!




My Panel, mouse or no mouse, is on Sunday at 12:00, in Burgersaal 2!

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 25, 2015, 3:10 PM
Left all of my planning until last minute :dummy:

Tomorrow I'm heading up to Dublin to get a flight out to Frankfurt, Germany, at 7am Monday morning. 
Spending 5 days in Frankfurt before heading down through Darmstadt and on into Stuttgart; just in time for Galacon!



SO, WHO WANTS TO BE HELPFUL?





I've only done very  rudimentary tourist research on both Frankfurt and Stuttgart, but I'd love to hear from residents or past-visitors about what I should definitely see while I'm there!

ALL OF THE INFORMATION PLS <3




Oh, and see you all at Galacon, where hopefully my panel won't mess up too much! :la:

Prepping some final things before it starts, should be pretty easy to find me there now :la:


Legit ID by Veggie55

I should really spend time prepping the panel I'm doing more than anything... 


OH, RIGHT, I SHOULD PROBABLY MENTION THAT.


I'll be doing a panel on the 2nd day (Sunday) at 12:30 in the Bürger-Saal!
[They called me Seán on the timetable, so just clearing that up.]


I'll basically be me showing people how I go from my initial rough sketches into a finished comic piece using Photoshop; might be useful to some people!
I've never done a physical panel before, let alone attend a convention, so expect absolutely everything that could go wrong to go wrong :dummy:


But hey, I'll be there for about an hour, most likely doing more talking than actual work; but should be fun!
If you're around, feel free to pop in!


Just wanted to let you know, and perhaps I'll see a few of you there! :wave:

On the 2nd day I'll be doing a panel for you folks.
Of course, I've never done one before, let alone attend a con, so expect absolutely everything to go wrong :dummy:


At it's core, it's a panel aimed at beginner digital artists, as well as traditional artists who maybe want a way to digitise their work.
But maybe it'll appeal to artists who already have their own methods and maybe just wish to see an alternative.

What I'll be doing is showing how I take my messy, unfinished sketches (Pretty sure it'll be the first time I've ever even shown my sketches) and fully flesh them out into a finished piece using software like Adobe Photoshop. (Lining, colouring, shading, etc...)
I'll also be doing a Q&A with anyone who wants to chat during the whole thing c:



Absolutely no idea how it's gonna play out, but hopefully I won't mess it up entirely!

:bulletgreen:  COMMISSIONS SLOTS ARE CURRENTLY OPEN  :bulletgreen: 




So, this is something that has been bothering me for a while.
I often get messages saying things like "I wish I could draw like you!" or "I can't draw this well at all!

What if I told you that I used to be absolutely shite at digital art before?
Like, bloody atrocious. See for youself!




Back when I first started:


Oldest by Veggie55
Back when I was using GIMP, struggling to learn the basics of doing art on a computer, and using the mouse to do absolutely everything.
Shaky lines along with a plethora of other errors. But we all gotta start somewhere, right?






A few years later:


Older by Veggie55
A bit of an improvement over the years!
While the lines are still jittery and a few other questionable errors, I think you'll agree that it's leaps above what I was doing years before it.
Still stuck with beloved GIMP.







Recent work:


Now by Veggie55
After the almost 2-year hiatus I took, I moved on from GIMP and full-time into Photoshop.
SMOOTH LINES, would you believe it?!
As well as overall improvements to colouring and other areas.








So, what should you take from this?


Look, I don't even consider myself a proper artist; I don't strive to do it as a career, I just enjoy it as a hobby.
But even so, even I have improved after years of practice!

And hell, I know for a fact that I can do better than this, and only time/persistence will let that happen.





Basically what I'm saying is;

No matter how bad you think that you are right now, don't just give up. You're bound to improve.



Keep on doodling!

Commission Slots: OPEN

Okay, let's see how this goes.



If you're interested in getting a commission from me, send a note here on DeviantArt, something along the lines of "[COMMISSION]", so it'll be clear.

For now, I've no set pricing in mind, as I'm writing this as I head out the door. We'll discuss it in the notes; don't worry, I'm not too greedy. Though it's pretty much the same basic idea as anyone else's commissions (ie: Sketches would be cheaper than lineart, lineart is cheaper than flat colours, etc...)






Payment


As per usual, I keep it simple and just use Paypal. 
I also prefer to wait until I've at least the sketch done before accepting payments; hate the feeling of owing things ^^;

Any payments will gladly aid in my way to possibly attending a few different cons this year :dummy:




What don't you do?


- I generally try to avoid comic-strip commissions. Unless they're absolutely brilliant or hilarious. (Not trying to sound too pretentious here.) But if you've an idea that you'd like someone to make, fire a note my way; I've had some great ones before.

- Humans. I dunno, I just don't enjoy drawing people, sorry. I:

- The... uh, different interests people have. *cough* Vore, and all that jazz. There are plenty of folks willing to do it out there, you'll find someone.

- OC characters. No, I do draw them, though I only tend to draw ones I actually like. (ie: No black/red alicorn bat OCs with some crazy-arse foot fetish or something kay?)

- I try to avoid anything that'll be insanely time-consuming too, unless of course, there's quite a decent little payment behind it c: #sellout 






So yeah, if anyone's interested, note away!
I'll only take on a few at a time, so expect this journal to close and open repeatedly.

Oh, and if there's anything you're unsure of, leave a comment! I'll answer it.

I see often enough that people leave comments on a bunch of my various different comics asking questions about certain things.

You'd be better off doing so on my actual profile instead, as I tend to reply to comments there much more frequently than the latter!

LAST ASSIGNMENT HANDED UP, ALMOST HAVE MY SUMMER FREEDOM :dummy:


So, comics should return to normal soon!



But while I have you here, I wanted to ask something; do you or anyone you know need some additional voice-actors for anything in particular?
Last week I started recording things for people again, and just felt like offering to help anyone who could use it!

If you're interested, I've a few demos I can send your way to show what I generally do.
If you've never heard me before, basically people say I've a... how would you put it; deep, throaty voice, though many times I've been asked to do the likeness of Chris O'Neill (OneyNG).

While I certainly wouldn't call myself a professional, I have been paid on occasions to do lines for people; and I've a pretty decent mic-setup just for it.


Just wanted to put this out there, especially now that I'm almost on my summer holidays.
I never really bothered to try get into voice-work in the fandom for some reason, only stuff outside, so thought I'd see if anything's needed :la:





That is all!

Almost Finished, Scrapped Comics a Tiny F.A.Q.

Ohaider :wave:


Almost Finished


Sorry that I haven't had a comic for you guys in almost a fortnight now; things are still hectic at the moment with deadlines.
But this week is my final week of classes and all assignments will be submitted the following week :dummy:

So, hopefully I'll get something done up for you guys by then, and if not by then, at least I'll be at home with time to work on them for you.



Scrapped Comics


I actually managed to throw together two comics in the small smidgens of free time I had over the last week; but I'm not happy with them at all to be honest,
They just feel rushed and don't really go anywhere :shrug:

If you still wanna check them out, here, I'll keep them in my stash:
 Ech 1 by Veggie55 Ech 2 by Veggie55
:iconitssomethingplz:

Instead, I'd rather wait until I've something that I'm happy with to submit here.







Tiny F.A.Q.


People have been PMing me here, some with the same question repeated multiple times, so I figured that I'd take the most common ones asked and quickly answer here in the hopes that I won't be asked many times again :la:




Do you do requests/art-trades?


No, I generally don't.
I make exceptions for close friends or whatnot, but that's about it, sorry!



 Do you have a Patreon?


No, and I never will, don't worry.

I love/hate the idea of it; some people deserve to have one, as it really is the only way to help them with their talent.
Most people though, at least to me, don't deserve it, and simply use it as a means to make money for little to no effort.

While I'm flattered that you'd be willing to support me financially on a monthly basis, I'd be against the idea.
This is a hobby of mine, not a job, and there are many folks out there who deserve the generous donations that you're willing to give.

Plus, I mean, making money of a television IP is pretty fucking risky regardless :'D
*cough* Dodgy offerings of commissions *cough*

If you REALLY wanna donate to me in some way, I have a paypal account,  though steam games are always nice <3



Do you have any convention plans?


Well, as of now, nothing set in stone.

I've never physically attended one, though I was at Buck in the UK via Skype a few years back.
Let's just say, I've been asked by a few (Mainly around Europe) if I'd be willing to attend as a guest and I've yet to make a decision.

Though it does sound like it could be an awesome experience!

Oh, and another note type I've gotten a few of;
If you're organising a con, don't be afraid to ask me; I don't bite :'D 

Some people have written to me, afraid that simply asking me about something was somehow offending me, huehue.
You can ask me whatever and anything; it's never a HASSLE to read text.
Unless it's a shite fanfic...



Will you ever update/make new tutorials?


Been meaning to for some time!
Possibly will over the summer; we'll see.




Do you have an OC?


Yus. The guy in my avatar.
This guy -->Veggie by Wicklesmack drawn by the wonderful Wicklesmack




Commissions m8?


Soon m8.





Can I add you on Skype/Steam ect.?


On skype, I pretty much accept anyone, so go nuts. Though granted, I often forget it's turned on and reply super late to folks.

As for steam? Well, it's my chill-out zone, I've had an issue years back where over 300 random bronies had added me and just blocked up my friends list.
So I'm kinda stricter about my Steam friends list nowadays.

Start on Skype or something, see where it goes! :dummy:




Uhm... did I miss anything... uh... feck, I don't really remember; those where the main ones.

If there's anything you wanna ask me that's not here, fire away; I don't bite.







Anyways, that's it for now folks!
One more week left, then a few more assignments to hand up and I should be able to chill for a while :la:

Final few weeks before the holidays.

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 19, 2015, 9:04 AM
Firstly, apologies for not having a comic uploaded this week.
I know that I don't normally aim to do stuff every week, but I do like when I get stuff done every 10-or-so days ^^;

I totally wasn't playing GTA V non-stop all week... no.... not...not at all :paranoid:



So yeah, as the title says, I'm in my last few weeks of college before we break off for the Summer holidays.

You: "Aww yeh, that's good, innit?"

Damn right it is! 
But it does mean that my assignment deadlines are fast approaching... and there's still quite a lot of work left to do.

You: "So, uh, wut does this mean?"

Well, it means that buying GTA V right before the the holidays was a stupid fucking idea  It means that Why, why did I do this to myself?!   IT MEANS THAT I'll be pretty slow to work on comics and whatnot for a few weeks; just while I'll balance it out with assignments and other things.

But I will hopefully get one uploaded some time during this coming week!

You: "Ah, so a lot of exams and stuff?"

Lel, no. I do multimedia, I've only 1, 30-minute exam. Instead of studying, I've constant assignment work to do!



BUT HEY!


When I'm on my holidays, commissions will be open again; this time without the pressures of trying to balance them with college work :dummy:





You: "And how are you in general?"
N'aww, you care? xox

Not too bad, to be honest!
Just so long as I get all this stuff done on time, I should stay that way.

Though I wish I had the Witcher 3 right now... blarg

Easter Commissions + Life Updates

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 30, 2015, 2:05 PM
Hoh boy, I'm gonna regret this, aren't I?



So, good news and bad news, folks :wave:

The good news is that I'm off college for the following fortnight thanks to the Easter Break, though I've still got my assignments to work on, it does give me a lot more free time than usual. 

The bad news is that I decided to take my PC MUSTARD-RACE MLG 1337 MONSTER desktop in to be checked out, as it's having an issue that I can't quite seem to work out.
So I'm working from my laptop for the next few days at least I:



So I figured, hell, why not do a few small commissions during my time off? It'll kill any time I spend wasting trying not to do assignment work :la:

BUT JUST A FEW SMALL ONES , as I'm trying to make comics at the same time in this fortnight of relative peace!




Veggie's Weird Commission Rule Thingies



1. I'm not gonna use fixed prices for these select few.  

Sucky as it may be, I'm simply going to balance it between value and time-consumption.
Basically, if you wanna be super generous in how much you're willing to pay for a commission, then I'm most likely going to do yours. Unless of course it's, like, some MASSIVE bloody thing that'll take a good week to do :noes:


Apologies, when the summer rolls along, I'll have a set pricing-system back in place, fair to everyone!


--- --- ---


2. What I Will / Will Not Do:  

:bulletred: For starters, MASSIVE commissions are a no. (ie: Long comic strips, a large group of characters doing a variety of things, sequential-imagery, etc...)

I'm off, but I'm not off for THAT long! Plus, like I said, I'm working off my laptop, the screen's a lot smaller than my usual dual-monitor setup.

For now. If you have a huge idea in mind, contact me again when i open summer commissions; I'll surely have time then (:


:bulletred: If you've known me for a few years now, you should remember my OLD journal about my views on OC characters that people ask me to draw;  OC Ponies (Warning: Raging)

That pretty much still stands, and it's simply because I cannot bring myself to draw a character that is too ridiculous to exist.

That doesn't mean that I DON'T do OC characters, in fact if you check my old commission gallery, you'll see quite a few.


:bulletred: The weird (to me) shite:

I'm not judging, but please, don't ask me to make commissions such as vore, transformations, foot-fetish bollocks etc.

There are plenty of folks who are more than happy to do that for you.


:bulletred: Humans:

Ech, I haven't watched any of that EQG stuff, nor do I plan on.

So if you were hoping for that kinda stuff, apologies, ain't gonna happen.


:bulletred: Shipping:

Ech, again, I've done shipping stuff before, though it's always been CanonXCanon or OCxOC.

Don't be that guy who wants his alicorn OC to mount Rainbow Dash, please.
Have him bang another OC or summit instead.


--- --- ---


3. Availability:  

Like I said, I'm only off for 2 weeks, in which I'm working on my own comic stuff as well as academic stuff, so I'm not going to have commissions open for long, nor will I really be doing that many of them.

If you miss out, just keep an eye out as in about 6 weeks they'll probably be available again, this time for much, much longer!


--- --- ---


4.  Payment:  

No, I don't use points. Sorry, I just don't have a use for them. :shrug:
Nor do I consider art trades a type of payment ^^;

The way I've always gone with is Paypal transactions, and I pretty much plan on keeping it that way.
Unless of course you wanna buy me some awesome games on :iconsteam-plz: ;D


--- --- ---


5.  How to send a request:  

Just send me a note on here with something like "[COMMISSION]" in the title so that I can mark it.

I usually reply to everyone, accepting or rejecting their request, but if you hear nothing back from me, just send another note and I'll surely see it.


--- --- ---


6.  Types of commissions?:

I usually offer 3 basic types, varying in price.

- Lined (Lineart only)

- Flat colour (No shading)

- Full colour (Shaded and other stuff)

Backgrounds? 
Bleh, I hate the bloody things, though if you REALLY want one that bad, I'm sure I can do something :p


--- --- ---


7.  What can you do with your commission?:

It's yours, go nuts.

I won't be posting them on my account anymore; seemingly people started to unwatch me because I uploaded a few scattered commissions among comic strips :shrug:

You can absolutely upload it to your own account and any other site you want. 

Just be sure to credit me though, ok? c:












Hue, just realised how cynical this all sounds.

Don't be deterred, I DO enjoy making commissions for you guys! :la:
It's just, you do get asked to do a lot of weird shite... just trying to filter in the not-so-weird ones...

MLP? Heh... funny you should mention that...

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 23, 2015, 4:32 PM

Yeah, long-arse journal, I know, sorry :v


Oh boy, where to begin? 

Have you ever looked back at something you did years ago and think; “Wow, please, no, I didn’t say/do that, did I?”

I’ve just had one of those moments… Feeling preeeeeetty dumb… 

 

As you probably know (Unless you’re one of my more recent watchers), on August 7th 2013, I finished up doing MLP-Related content and had hopes of making my own webcomics. (Really missed that goal, didn’t I?)

The reason I gave for this was due to my State-Examinations at the time, which had not only driven me away from watching the show, but also sucked up pretty much any of my downtime which I usually spent making images for you guys.
That said, I only just finished said exams when I made that decision to leave, thinking that when I went to college, I would still have very little time to enjoy the whole MLP scene again.

 … This is the part where I realise how much of a dumbass 17-year-old Veggie really was.

 

Since I started my course, even with the extra time I spend on assignments, I still have plenty of free-time which I could easily have spent being a productive person, but instead squandered most of it, rarely doing anything with all the excess hours.
(Seeing a pattern here?)

 

Ever since then, I always contemplated getting back into the fandom, with my (hopefully) improved skills, and even now I still feel the same way.

And as of the last month, the urge has grown, to the point of making this here journal you’re reading.

…yeah.

 

OKAY, THIS IS THE SPACE WHERE YOU SAY THE OBVIOUS;

“Wow, I knew it, you should’ve just taken a break, you dumbass, instead of overreacting and downright leaving, wow, you make me feel ashamed to be human. Bwahahahaha!”
 

And hey, I won’t lie, you’re totally right. In fact, I did it not just once, but twice, for the same reason.

So yeah, I totally deserved that.

“I MEAN, SERIOUSLY, YOU WERE ACTING LIKE A SCHOOL-GIRL ABOUT IT, HOLY SHIT VEGGIE!”

… okay, I deserved that too.
 

 

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want to… try again, I guess?

I wanted to see if I could get back into it after this stupid 2-Year gap I made myself and see if I could get back to making some content for you guys, since, really, that’s all that I missed.

Your feedback, ideas, reactions, all that jazz; meant the world to me. (Hell, I had, like, 50 watchers before MLP came along, you guys are the only reason I was ever noticed!)

 

So, while I don’t want to make a definite statement (You know, like my definite statement about leaving…) about returning full-time, I definitely wanted to make an attempt, and if it went well, try get back uploading content on a regular basis, and hopefully not make the same mistakes that I did years ago.
(Producing poorly-written and made content purely to maintain a consistent upload rate was probably my biggest sin.)

Netflix is urging me to catch up on what I missed, and talking with some of the great friends I made over the years always greatly helped, filling me in on the latest happenings and whatnot, encouraging me to give it another shot.
 






Sorry for writing a bloody novel in this journal, and if you read all of this, I greatly appreciate it. (And question your sanity...)

And sorry for being such a drama-queen back then, hell, even now, I mean, did you read this? Bloody hell, I make it sound like I’m dying or something.
 

Anyways, long story short, I want to give it all another shot, and hopefully improve in those places that I failed, and to never write another bloody dramatic journal entry again, EVER.

 

So yeah, I’m going to sleep on it, but I welcome your thoughts and opinions, after all, the only reason I’m really considering this is because of you guys.
"OH GOD, STOP BEING SO CORNY, YOU'RE ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY KILLING ME."

 

Let’s see what happens, eh?

Ohai there, how're things?

Just felt like updating my DeviantArt in some manner while waiting for a fresh cuppa. 

I noticed that I'm stilling getting, like, a few thousand people coming to my page on a daily basis, as well as still gaining more watchers despite having not done a MLP comic since 7th August 2013 :noes:

Just feels like a waste, considering how many people I've seen here that deserve that kind of activity, y'know, since they'd be uploading pretty much every day.

Season 5, as far as I'm aware of, should be starting off soon enough, no? (Or have a completely fallen off the wagon?)
Community still seems to be kicking around though.

I remember being all excited for the new seasons due to all the new shit I could draw :'D

Anything new or completely crazy happening lately?
I'm pretty much out of the loop completely.

it's nearing 5 years now, holy shit.
