This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
Just wanted to let everyone know how things are going.
A lot of the financial stuff I mentioned previously has been sorted out. My car is fixed up and I've got most of my school fees covered as of now. I still need a lot of dental work, but I talked to my new dentist about the financial concerns, and she was willing to do new fillings in the worst teeth at a discount, knowing I will have to come back within the next couple of years to get those teeth crowned. The fillings I got aren't guaranteed to last very long, but they will at least prevent certain teeth from getting even worse until I can afford to get them properly fixed.
I'm back at college now, getting into the daily grind of classes and work again. If anything, I'm really glad to be back at my job on campus. I really enjoy the work and appreciate the people I work with there. My classes are alright so far, despite the amount of reading and writing ahead of me this semester. It does look like I'll have a decent amount of free time though. We will have to wait and see when things really get going.
I am still open for commissions, if anyone is really interested. Since I have more things to do on a daily basis now I can't guarantee I will be working on art frequently, but I will do my best to satisfy any interested customers.
Before getting back here I did revise some of my plans for my fantasy series. I had enough inspiration to write out the beginning of one of the stories, and I think it turned out much better than my previous attempts. However, with as much reading and writing I'll probably be doing for classes, I don't know how much focus I'll be able to put towards the series. I do want to work on my stories and I want to get more artwork done, but I also need to keep my priorities straight. That means personal projects, including Vindication of Achaemon and the Medieval Armor Reference project, will probably be taking a back seat to school work.
In regard to the Medieval Armor Reference project, since my progress will likely be slow, I think I will upload each drawing separately and wait until the end to put them all together. Separate uploads would allow me to explain a lot more details about each figure's clothing, armor and weapons after all.
I think that's all I had to say, but if something has escaped me, I'll update later.
Jordan, Mack, Hawk, whatever.
Artist | Student | Varied
Just so you don't have to read too much, I'll sum myself up in three words.
Artist. Knight. Lizard.
That's all, folks!
I'll add a couple of specifics just because they're necessary.
Yes, I take commissions. No, I don't do requests, except for close friends. I may consider an art trade. Send me a note if you are interested in a commission or a trade.
I am a student of graphic arts and history. My artistic preference is a combination of traditional and digital media. My historical preference is the Middle Ages, though I'm quite fond of history in general.
