Woo! Took a while, but all 10 slots have been filled!

Thanks for everyone who commissioned me! I'm working through the list steadily now. Hopefully should have a bunch done before I go on Vacation next Wednesday. Worse case there just may be an extra week delay.

When I'm ready for more, I'll make another post announcement :D

Hi folks!

Just an update on my current work load! Took a little while, but 2016 is starting to get busy with some cool projects. Currently got some freelance projects in the works, and slowly developing some new cartoons for the YouTube channel. Hoping to have something on there within the next month or so (hopefully, maybe, ideally, auugh)

Still slowly working through the commission list, especially the animated gif ones. I deeply apologise for the delay on those as they do take a bit longer to rough out, animate, clean up etc. Hoping to get those done over the next few weeks, so I do appreciate your patience!


UPDATE (24-01-2016): Looking at my current work load, I've decided to close the remaining animated gif commissions. I think it would be better for me to focus properly on  the ones already commissioned, as well as my current projects. If I decide to open up for more, I'll let ya know!

Yup! I've just started my own Patreon to help fund my animated projects! This is help fund new videos I'd post on my YouTube page! 
If you're interested in seeing more animated content from me, please consider pledging!!



If you pledge at least $10, you'll get to see cool behind the scenes stuff for the next cartoon, including storyboards, concept art and character designs!!

If ya don't wish to pledge, then I would greatly appreciate sharing the link around!



Also!! Still open for Animated Gif commissions!!

Check out the details here!

So, funny story.

In my attempt to remove a Tumblr blog from the list of blogs I use, I mistakenly clicked the 'delete account' button instead of the 'delete blog' button. After following the instructions I thought would delete the blog, I quickly discovered a rather disturbing site.

I accidentally deleted everything!

That’s right! EVERYTHING!!

Like a pathetic bloke with no clue how the universe works, I deleted all my blogs!

My normal blog!

My art blog!

Even the MAiZ blog!

It goes to show you that it pays to READ EVERYTHING, and don’t just press buttons and hope for the best!

I hope you can learn from my mistake and take things carefully, especially when it comes to technology. You never know when deleting blog can wipe all your Tumblr work!

Here’s to new reblogging stuff from scratch! Yaaaaaaaay


If you're still interested in following those blogs, despite my stupidity, I'd greatly appreciate it XD

Had a lot of fun at Nightmare Nights this past weekend! It was a nice small-sized con, everyone was really friendly and nice to talk to, and people seemed to enjoy my prints! Even got to do a few fun commissions:

NMND2015 - T-Rex wrecks everything by SupaCrikeyDave NN2015 - Spike and Rarity by SupaCrikeyDave NMND2015 - The Sirens by SupaCrikeyDave

It's the 2nd time I've ever vended at a con, and my friends and I learnt a lot over the three days. I'll take that experience and apply it to the next con in a few weeks!

Some of the highlights included being part of PikaPetey's animation panel on Saturday. That was a lot of fun, got to answer some good questions about animation and freelancing, and all while I was constantly made fun of for using Flash XD (though Ishi Rudell, an animator for MLP, was awesome to point out that the show is animated in Flash, so yeah!!)

Speaking of Ishi, got to chat with both him and Katrina Hadley (kick-ass storyboard artist) and they were awesome to chat to, great sense of humor and a pleasure to have met. They even both sat in on the animation panel, though I have no idea why XD They should've been the ones up on stage!

Also got to briefly chat with Cathy Weseluck (voice of Spike) who honestly was quite inspiring and very humbling. She was really attentive and considerate of all her fans (even the odd ones), and it was a honor to meet her.

And during the last day, a young family of women/girls came up and just started getting super-excited over my stuff, recognizing my animation and art style and just floored me with their enthusiasm! It was a bit overwhelming; I've never had anyone, let alone a group of people, react to my work that way before. I'm really grateful they took the time to come by and say hello; wherever you are, thank you so much!

All in all, it was a wonderful experience, would recommend it if you're ever in the Dallas area next year!


Next up, I'll be vending at Running of the Leaves Con in Denver, Colorado from November 6-8!

That’s right! Until October 22nd, I’m taking commission requests! They can be Halloween themed, a regular request or BOTH! Whatever you want, I’ll draw it! (except porn, no porn)

Send me an email at crikeycommissions(at)gmail.com with the details/reference images of your request + the option you’d like! PayPal only!

However, aside from Chibi’s, I’m only taking a certain number of requests (roughly 20-30 requests), so get in fast while you can!



ALSO!!
An update on my convention schedule: I will no longer be attending Super Speedy Cider Con! Apologies to anyone attending SSCC, hopefully we'll make it next year!! 

I am still going to Nightmare Nights and Running of the Leaves, so hope to see people there!!

Tomorrow I head overseas once again, this time to spend the next 2 months living in the United States vending at a variety of conventions!!

Both excited and nervous about spending so much time in the States, but I know it’ll be a great experience and I’m looking forward to hopefully meeting even more amazing people!

The conventions I’ll be vending at include:

If you’re around any of these cons, please come and say hello! I’ll have prints for sale and can do hand-drawn commissions!!

Here’s to adventure ahead!

You can find them being sold at the SombraShop at Booth #36 (Tables 69-70). Just look for the big CrikeyDave sign!

I won't be there sadly, but if you see the prints and enjoy them, please purchase one and help support my work!

Was a lot of fun to work on and got to try a lot of new techniques in After Effects, so I'm very proud how it turned out. I hope people enjoy it! :D
