I found out today that I had received another Daily Deviation. Needless to say, I am absolutely stunned. Thank you so much homunculus888 and Thiefoworld!
Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the years, you're all amazing!
Reason for my recent inactivityHi Everyone! So as you may have noticed, I haven't been posting any new art for awhile. I thought it was about time I let everyone know what's going on with me these days.
Earlier this year, I was hired at a game company that makes an educational online math game for kids called Prodigy. Since then, I've been super busy and haven't had much time for personal art. On top of that, the company is now slowly transitioning me into a lead position, which means I'll soon be even more busy than before.
I really want to get to a point where I can carve out at least a couple hours every day for personal art because I miss posting on wonderful art communities like this. But at least in the short term, I'm going to be remaining inactive.
Sorry about that. I hope you're all doing well.
Intro Cut Scene Thing That I DidHi everyone, long time no update! Here's something I created for the company I'm currently working with.
This is an intro cut scene for the educational online math game, Prodigy. I was responsible for creating the illustrations and overlay images.
My New JobHi everyone,
I want to apologize for my recent inactivity. I'm currently working as a game artist at a studio here in Ontario. It's a great job, but very time consuming, so I'm not left with much spare time at the end of the day. I do want to try and post things at least once in awhile, but we'll see how things go.
As always, a huge THANK YOU to everyone that's supported me thus far. You guys rock!

I'm Back!Hello everyone!
After a very long hiatus, I have finally decided to return to dA. It has been extremely encouraging to see that people are still dropping by my page and leaving comments/favourites on a daily basis.
A lot has happened since I last posted, the most relevant of which is that I have teamed up with children's book writer, Jonathan S. Skye, and am now currently working as a full-time illustrator on a series of novels called "Flurry the Bear".
So far, we have released three books from the series, with a fourth one already on the way! The books are available for purchase on Amazon.com:
Flurry the Bear is a novel series for children ages 9-12 and older, and follows the story of a teddy bear named Flurry who embarks on many epic adventures. Besides being in charge of cover illustrations, I am also in charge of creating promotional artwork as well as

Theme - Draw my OCs!
To those who may not know, my ultimate bab is an Inuyasha OC I created named Yukiko.
For this contest, It'll be focused on her or her family. (who are also Inuyasha OCs)
She's paired with a canon character from the anime,
and if you have an issue with oc x canon then this may not be the contest for you. T u T;
Drawing anyone from her family is optional!
Drawing her with her fox companion Liam is preferred, but also optional <3
And I'd honestly swoon if anyone drew her with Sesshomaru.

SAVE THE LOUD HOUSE!!!IF YOU LIKE TLH, THEN SPREAD THIS IMMEDIATELY!!!!!
If you didn't know, I like this recent show on Nick called The Loud House, and you should go check it out too!
But that's not the thing.... The thing is that One Million Moms is trying to cancel an episode for a REALLY stupid reason. Here's why:
In the episode "Overnight Success.", It appears that the Louds are having a slumber party. In one scene, Lincon's friend Clyde gets dropped off by his parents for the slumber party. Seems ok, right? But NOOO, the Moms are angry because Clyde has TWO Dads IN A TINY LITTLE CAMEO. AND THAT'S THE ONLY THING THEY KNOW ABOUT THE EPISODE!!!
Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage on a network that is designed for kids.
And that's a bad thing HOW???? That's like saying "Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to

One Year Laterhttp://koili.deviantart.com/journal/Well-546094597
Exactly one year ago, I was alone in my room, crying. Panicking about what was going to happen in a few hours. I was going to leave behind the only life I knew.
One year ago, I was covered in grease, sweat and dirt. I showered once a month. I barely ate. My clothes and bedding were never washed. I was awoken or kept up every night by my drunken mother who would scream at me for no reason. Every night ended in tears until I passed out from exhaustion. I know she tried to be a good mom, and it was my fault she started drinking in the first place.
I had known :iconchillaid: for five years prior. We had gotten close in 2013 over Animal Crossing: New Leaf. We both found each other at the right time. Our friendship flourished from there. We roleplayed every night and bonded so much. We got so close. I considered her my sister.
:iconchillaid: would hear what my mom would do over Skype. She would stay up with me for the entire night comforting
