Artist for Two Sites

Well, I've had a bit of a busy time. From when I done my last post to now, I've somehow became a Sim artist for two completely different sites. One second I'm trying to do my commissions, the next I'm being attacked from all sides o___o; It's sort of.. you know weird. I've never had to bother with deadlines before, and now I feel pressured to actually stick to them. Though, I have to admit my commissions have suffered quite a bit as they are being even more delayed than they once were.

The first site that first stepped towards me was Aywas.com. I've never really been one for sims like it, but it seems an okay game, and as long as I get paid I don't mind. The site is basically a breeding, collection exploring sim. You explore regions, collect animals that you capture and breed others to get unique offspring. Luckily I'm only working part time at the site, though I'm considering giving up my position in this one, to be even more committed to the other.

The other site is a new up coming Sim, called Vis Servo. It's unique in respect that you have to manage and protect your own wildlife reserve in serveral countries and regions. You start off in the UK, and you can then travel abroad. I got recommended to the site by one of my watchers on dA, so I checked it out, applied and after a sample image I was put on the team. It's pretty cool as all my favourite artists from Furry-Paws are pretty much on there, so I'm sort of revelling in the fact that I'm considered as great as them C: Tehe <3

And, I was a dick and booked myself in for my Driving Theory (whilst completely wrecked with my mum). I'm really NOT looking forward to it D: And I gave myself too few time to actually revise properly. I guess I'll have to try and fit it in between everything. You know, a little bit of Site work, a little bit of Commission, and then revising Driving whilst I'm halfway through chores and such. Fuuuuuun.


I feel as guilty as fuck. I accidentally hurt the dog today by playing with him on my bed. I've been over my mums for the after noon, and just came back, and the dog was so excited. He was jumping around, and playing and generally very very happy. So I gave him a piece of jerky, and headed upstairs to get changed. The dog followed me up and jumped on my bed, and wanted to play on the bed. So like usual I reeved him up, and began hit the bed with full force so the other side would bounce up with Zepplin on it (he generally loves this), so I struck the bed at the usual place. The dog however jumped in this place to try and attack my hands from bellow. It was too late to stop myself, but I managed to cut the amount of force down, but I still struck the dog. I caught his head and neck between my wrist and elbow, and caught him quite roughly. He squealed and I got my hand as fast off him as I could. Then he had his ears pinned back, and he started licking my hand quite shyly D:

I think I hurt quite a bit, but I don't think that he is injured to say in the least. About a minute after it happened he was jumping around, and shoving more toys on me wanting to play. So I fussed him, and he seems okay. Just before I started to type this the dog went downstairs for a drink and a few biccies before coming back up.

Regular Blogger?

I dunno. I've been thinking about it for a few days, and I thought that I should try and continue on with blogging, and letting people know what I do, and my noob moments. Possibly also keep a update on my moods, Zepplin, speed paints and my New years Resolution as well.
Okay so lets start!


Today I haven't done much but I've been working on my Dog training more than anything. I was suggested by Mirri (#4458) to try a technique called the Umbilical cord. It sounds repulsive, but its basically when you tie the dog to you all day. So I gave that a go, and poor little Zepp didn't enjoy it one little bit. I think he got irritated by the whole, "You must follow me around. THIS WAY. Haha, your too far away from that Toy unless I move my leg" issues xD Since he's such a little dog, I gave him as much distance as I could by tying him to my ankle, on two leashes. We had an eruka moment several times, and we had some fun aspects. One of his benefits was that he could chew something up on my bed. Usually I don't allow it, but he couldn't find anywhere comfortable on the floor within distance.

I also was working on some new tricks with him. We've been learning 'Speak', 'Watch me' and 'Belly'. Not all in one go though, just small little sessions as I waited for the kettle to boil, and after I done the dishes. I was also trying to desensitise him from ringing noises, because when I accidentally walk into the hanging bells, he runs for his life.

I've been drawing a little today, but I seem to have no inspiration or desire to really draw. I know that I need to do my commissions, but I don't have the will power to sit there and do them. -sigh- And this sketch that has been on my screen for the last 3 days has only just been coloured. Perhaps I need to go for a little relaxing walk with the dog tomorrow, and let my mind wander. There must be something that can kick my gear into action again.

Other aspects of my day was quite boring though to be honest. I was listening to a recording of myself speaking welsh, and seeing if I got the accenting right. I was also squeeing about my new pupper on FP.

She's amazing! -FPSqueeeeees- She's a puppy from the highest dog on FP, and she has some epic stats going on. The breeding level of her litter was 106 x 65, and the litter Quality was 215.8/100. I got SPOL of the litter, but I seem to have picked the Strongest pup from it. Her sister, who was named Spirit of the Wild, currently has a potential of 246 for Herding. Whilst, *Persephone has a potential of 282 in Herding. The difference is roughly, 9-14 levels between them. And if I keep feeding her cookies, and attacking her with Acorns the difference could reach over 20 levels before they even start to show. Another bright side is that I managed to breed two Piebald girlies for my lines. They're not great, but the stats on the girls are okay. **Crimson Snow has a potential of 127, and **Fresh Snow has a potential of 129. So you can see the massive difference in quality from them, and Persy. Whilst I'm on the FP topic, I see to have a weird Sloughi. She's only a Second gen, and she wasn't great when she weaned, but she's almost hit Level 30. As far as I know, it's unheard of for a Gen two dog to be that strong. Ohwell, looks like anything can happen.

At the moment, I'm halfway through making dinner. I'm making a casserol/Stew sort of dish, and my brother has just came home. He keeps asking me, "When's tea done, when's tea done?" Problem is, I keep saying 'I dunno', well in truth I do. It won't be finished till 9:30pm, but I don't have the heart to tell him that xD lawl, about an 1 hour and 40mins to go!
