Since Patrick is, well, dead in Ultimate Nickelodeon Brawl Stars X, how about have SpongeBob's Halloween costume be Patrick Star, like how SpongeBob dressed as him in Big Pink Loser?

@ Justout It's a can of expired Cheez Whiz and an old lottery ticket. I know, I was disappointed when I found that out, too.

Hey, folks. I know I haven't been active a lot as of late, but I think you're obliged to have an update on what's been going on with me.

Truth be told, last year and even up to this month has been really crazy (one of the journals I had posted earlier would explain just one of the problems I've faced) and I'm constantly finding myself on the move constantly, with barely any time (and in some cases, motivation) to draw at all. As such, I've been offering refunds to my clientele (which reminds me, :iconju-shaoran:, let me know if you've gotten through with your Paypal account, I still have yours to give back) and even extra drawing requests if they'd like that, in addition to what they've originally paid for.

I currently have all of the requests here on a list, hopefully I'll be done and over with them by the end of February. After that, I won't be taking any more requests or commissions until further notice. I honestly thought I would have the time/commitment to do them and churn them out, but that wasn't the case. To everyone who was waiting, I apologize.

Some of you have also been asking me about the status of Crossover Chaos/Brawl Stars as well, and the last time I addressed that, I said it would be on hiatus until this month. I will try to churn out something before the month is over, before I get back into full swing. But to be honest here, my motivation for doing them is dying. While I had a lot of fun with the concept and got a whole slew of fans eagerly watching and jumping up my pageviews (of which I am very thankful), I feel that, at the same time, it's caused me to become stagnant in terms of art. A few have called me out on it, and I'm going to have to agree with them. One poster said that I've "plateaued in art quality since 2006", and looking at my gallery, it's not hard to see why he would say something like that. Aside from the shading, my art hasn't really evolved too much since, and that's something I need to work on. Granted, I will still see these things to the end, it's what you guys watch me for, but I'm feeling pretty creatively drained at the moment, and the circumstances I'm facing in my life right now sure as hell isn't helping with that.

Everyone, I thank you very much for your undying patience with me. While you're waiting for me to return from the dead, here are a few artists that you should throw an eye on, because their stuff is awesome.

:iconcoonfoot: :iconthweatted: :iconglitcher:

Peace, everyone.

The next character for Crossover Chaos is Ben 10. But which version do you think I should go with? 

41 deviants said Classic Ben!
27 deviants said Omniverse Ben!
25 deviants said Ultimate Alien Ben!
12 deviants said Alien Force Ben!
6 deviants said ...who's Ben?

Hey man. I do not mean to sound impacient or rude. (If I do, I'm sorry) but how long until we can expect an update for CNCC? I just LOVE your work.

I hope you continue to progress. It looks like you've plateau'd in art progression since those pictures in 2006. I do not in the slightest like that woman working on Mighty Number 9 but I was really hoping to be blown away by your progression by seeing your recent images. I was not.

I agree with you. I feel like I've stagnated quite a bit as of late, and I would like to move forward. 
But can I ask that you elaborate a bit more on what you're saying, though?
 Some constructive criticism is good for the soul, and you seem to have some ideas of how I can improve.

Your proportioning is far too bound to cartoony proportioning. I know you draw fanart a lot but I feel like all your characters are chibi like in size. I cant take them seriously.  Try to find a more realistic balance. Also; spend more time and effort on detailing faces. Your faces are proportional to the bodies int hat the faces fit. But still they fall under the chibi cartoony like feel. A lot of your characters faces reminds me of Code Lyokos art style. Which honestly wasn't good in my opinion. It felt really bland and mediocre. Like it came straight out of a "how to draw manga" book. Focus more on structuring your cheeks, forehead, and lower jaw line and chin.  It doesnt look like you've posted faces being shown from an angle in a while; so I can't make a fair criticism of where you sit now. Your most recent image is of a straight forward facing head shot.  But I guess this will do as an example of what I'm talking about… her face lacks dimensions. The only indication that she even has a cheek is that she is facing to a side. The structure of her face is rather boring. Without getting into anatomy and stuff the 3 main core points of a face I focus on are the cheeks, forehead, and jawline/chin. Bring more attention to that. But do not over exaggerate it.  Also; even spacing between the eyes and forehead will help too. You did that well here… but the rest of her features are so soft or none existent she just seems bland.  My biggest thing about different art styles is feel competent in what you can do. I don't see your competence in your artwork. Some basic anatomy studies could help too. Look into Loomis, and some basic feature and proportioning.

I see. Truth be told, I did always have a problem with lower jaws/chins, they tended to be the last things on my mind whenever I attempt to draw a face, so I will try a bit harder on structuring the faces  so that they're less bland and more fleshed out.

Thanks for your advice.
