So it was a bit of a rush at the end, but I finished it on April 13th as I hoped! It mattered to me since the art project opened her round a year ago that day.
I'm very happy with the reception so far! 136 faves in the first day, thank you all! This work has the largest amount and probably most detailed art I've ever drawn for a submission, so it would have really hurt me if it hadn't done as well as it has so far.
It's been just over a year since my last colored submission. A few months of that was the Girl Hunt story but I still need to improve my working conditions so I can get closer to my 2010-2012 level of activity. Speaking of which...
Tickle Attayo update
It's about time I returned to this as my main art priority. I'm still committed to not starting anything new now until it's updated.
It would be great if I could get it done for its third birthday (geez, is it that old already?) on July 2nd but I'm not sure there will be enough time.
One thing for sure though, I don't want it to be the only update it gets. Much of the work that I have done on it since will make it much easier to make more updates in the future. The part that's causing delay for this first update is a new object whose appearance will vary with how it is used and early experimentation with the art for that shows it will be tough. And while we're talking about things that will take a while...
In order to get the Sohara pic done in time I've really neglected my messages recently. Sorry to the people I watch who've submitted some great pics I've seen in my inbox! I've not ignored them.
I delete messages I'm not interested in (mostly from groups) when they arrive, but there's a lot of messages that have built up, which I want to respond to with the time they deserve.
So in the next few days I hope to really go through my messages and do that. A couple of you might get a lot of comments, faves and so on from me soon!
