So...for the time being..all art projects will be put on hold.

My tablet ended up dying on me...=3=

I've ordered a new tablet, thanks to my wonderful girlfriend

If your looking to get commissions while I don't have my tablet, you are welcome to still request the commission and I'll place you in queue immediately once my tablet arrives
So folks...to everyone that's been reading Rings

I have a question as far as the uploading has been going. 

Should I continue to upload the way I have been?

The way I have it right now, is that I upload a bulk of at least 10 pages (unfortunately to finalize the pages takes me at least an month, which I've not been very fond of uploading frequency)

Do you guys prefer my 10 to 10+ page uploads per month? or should I do bring it down a few pages or try to make the uploads quicker? (maybe every 3 to 2 weeks?)
Something about my art that you Do Not like?

Something I do or tend to draw that gets on your nerves or just makes you alittle discomfortable, or something big that makes ya question my sanity or just something i need to work on? (Like my seriously suffering Anatomy syndrone xD)
Yea...it's alittle of a mess....>_>...

Give me sometime to try and figure out how best to model my gallery back up so everything isn't everywhere xD;
Hey it's been a while since I did a journal o.o

Well just an update from me: my job situration has switched up abit. I've been deathly busy with the two jobs I've been and it's put abit of a styfle on uploading and drawing like I wanted to. However I no longer work that second job now and back at the theater...still debating if that was the proper choice...but still what's done is done and now I gotta playball. 

In regards to the status I had place earlier and to those who may not be aware of it:
A series of earthquakes had struck the islands of Hawaii on the 4th, one with a notable magnitude of 6.9. There hasn't been any major headlines regarding it as it seems just yet, but some news outlets online are providing information. The recent Earthquake had inadvertently triggered a volcano south of the Lelilani Estates area in Hawaii. (forgive my misspelling) This has caused an eruption to occur within that area and seismologists believe this may also trigger an subsequent series of quakes that will impact Hawaii. Ether way, whether this is exaggerated or not, these are some very troubling events along with the very long list of similar events around the world right now. If any of you currently live or know of friends, family who are currently impacted in Hawaii, please pray and hope for their safety and also remain safe ;3;

News - Rings Of Tinuris
The comic is still going. I'm making a habit of updating in bulk pages (at the very least 10 pages each upload) There has been one notable change. From this previous page and going forward, the comic will now be read from Left to Right in the standard American/English format. Each page from this point going forward, will be marked with a directional icon to help guide readers and also pages may have subtle arrow systems to help guide panel to panel. This was a personal decision that was in the makings to help understand the reading flow alot better. Additional corrections may be done in the future but for now this current. Also more information regarding the characters, the world, and Lore will also be posted up very soon as the pages progress. For those who are still reading the comic, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope you continue to read and enjoy the story ^^. I do have surprises coming up that should let us dive deeper. The webcomic will continue to be updated here on DeviantArt and the following galleries:

Tapas: tapas.io/episode/1033119

Webtoons: www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/…
Please show your support by sharing the comic on your feeds, or even adding, faving/staring the comic and also feel free to provide feedback =3


News - Twitter
I now have a Twitter account: twitter.com/ShaozChampion
Theres....almost nothing there right now. I'm still taking a look on how everything is run. I currently have a few image up there and I may use Twitter to post some exclusive art and images so stay tuned for more.

I also do have a Tumblr, altho my the account is more for my personal use and the RoT Official Tumblr, however due to the low interest, updates to it may be low to none until I can gather more viewers.

News - Youtube
Yes I have a Youtube channel currently in the works for my gaming videos called The PROJECT Gaming. At the moment the channel is still being set up, and I will unveil more as I get my first video ready for it

Commissions:
Will re-open soon on the standard rate updated for 2018 until the next Special comes online.  As I currently have a comic project that has been set to the burner for alittle longer than I'm comfortable for, I will need to try and get that project finished as soon as possible before re-opening mainline commissions.

That's really all I got to say for now, Thank you so much for supporting me and new watchers joining me, I hope I entertain =3
Be with you
I just got news that a cousin of mine, not as close, but i had the honor of hanging out with her during her rest days had passed away earlier this morning..

She had been fighting Leukemia...and so strong against it...battled through multiple chemotherapy sessions and was in pain for a long time...as far as I know she is among the hundreds of heroes who had fought against this variant of cancer.

Im okay...its just shocking to hear that the last visit we had was the last time I hugged her....that realisation is never easy...nether will be the days ahead.

Progress on projects may continue as normal as possible but will be slowed or delayed for the time being
Dam whatever it is plaguing my stomach! Now idk if this is food posioning or the stomach flu...ether way im gonna lose my job if i keep calling out because of it ;;3;;
I hate politics...

I hate the idea of politics

But today Im going to address them, as today was a big day in the history of mankind. Within the last few months, of the 12 billion people in the world, a thundering majority stood up and united to speak out against the attempt to repeal the Title II article "Net Neutrality" which states that ISPs who serve as our gateway access into the internet must treat all incoming and outgoing data the same and not discriminate in anyway in favor of economic or 'premium' members for 'fast lanes' or other isolating features.
(Wikipedia has an article detailing this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Net_neut… )

Long story short, this prevents Internet Service Provider Giants from the ability to abuse the access of Internet by imposing price tags on how 'fast' or how free you want to browse the internet. 

Today at 10am, the meeting to vote on this appeal took place and out of 5 person panel, the vote was 3 to 2 in favor of removing the Title II Article and voted in favor of light touch regulation of classified 'ISPs'. This means the FCC will no longer enforce ISPs to not discriminate against their subscribers and those who wish to access the internet both companies and consumers.

This...is a big fear for the open internet...BUT it is not the end.

This repeal is only a request, which must go through the pipes of the government for approval. This means that this request to repeal the Title II must go through and be approved by Congress and the Supreme Court just like every other law. (Of which this repeal in particular is very unpopular with our lawmakers, companies and court officers alike)

So theres still a chance. Our FCC commissioners who stood against this repeal have done their best...the next step in the process is to see where this repeal goes to court. (not to mention the allegations against the FCC chairman to push this repeal through illegally and through the wrong channels. This is also taken into consideration and the repeal is likely to be stopped from going further)

So stand strong everyone. This is not over no matter what news reports. Continue to stand and use your voice.

the Chairman ignored us, yes.

The supreme court and Congress however have heard us loud and clear

So don't go silent, don't get violent but don't give up. Because were stronger than any army in this world with the perfect weapon...our Voice. Keep your anger focused through your words and not physically.

Soo...how does one make a living from their artwork?

I mean when you think about it its a matter of how or what you gotta do to get the people you need to make it happen.
Things have taken a turn...

I woke up this morning after having a dream about Litith and Czara and my cast having a food fight that I found my Stylus finally in a obvious part of my bag that I forgot existed...

....that made me a little extra sad before i had to go to work....;;^;;

...that is...until i realized. That part of my bag existed...o.o...

ANDSURENOUGHICHECKEDITAND THEREITWAS!!!! =D

So i go to work happy now..X3

Art pause is officially over ='3
Still looking for my Stylus that's currently lost....still no luck...

also figured out why its gonna be about an entire month before I can get my new stylus...

it's coming from China...T_T....
Well...after a night of a feeling like a jackass at work...to top the end of the night my fucking stylus ends up missing from my bag somehow. Soo...I can't really draw without it for my tablet...that means that once again...All Progress on all projects comic based will be halted until I find it or get a new one. I have no idea where it could've been lost or missing from...

I've ordered a new one from Amazon, but I won't receive it until November...

*RAGES*
[TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES]

Litith: Hey guys, SC's currently raging around the office right now ^^;;

Czara: Yea, he'll calm down...just give him some time. ^^;; We've currently placed an order for a new Pen while he searches around for the old one. Unfortunately that means you won't be able to see much more artwork for now unless it's vectors and logos until we receive the new Stylus. =3 

Litith: we do still have the really old tablet we first started with, but I don't think SC remembers where he has it or if it'll still work ^^; We'll keep you uptodate on that so please be patiant with us =3
Sexy October based theme? Or Winter Beach Theme?

You pick =3
Your probably wondering what im up to with the latest poll x3

This is also gonna be a slow process due to my jobs but all will become clear soon x3 and no worries you'll get to vote again later =3 this is gonna be an Underarmored Special event that'll coincide with beach bonaza's events listing x3

But for now enjoy the October team line ups as they show =P

I made my Pateron update what would you expect from me to do for you? =3

As far as rewarding supporters what would like to be rewarded with? =3
Well folks I got a new job =3

Tho this job has me working from 5 in the afternoon until 2am in the morning every day (for now at least) and I also still work at the movie theater during the day on select days. 

Pretty much this means majority of my day is gonna be spent away from home. Because of this, all my drawing and projects will be severely stiffed. I promise I will do everything in my power to continue pushing Rings of Tinuris and my projects along but sadly my quick timing may no longer be there.

I know theres a good bit of folks out there who like my artwork and I'm really so sorry that it's taken me forever to upload at the rapid pace I've done in the past. 

No one really understands this, but I really love drawing. I love creating artwork, creating worlds, trying my hardest to render my imagination and perception or reality to life. I'm still far away from where I need to be as an artist, but over the last 12 years, I've grown to a somewhat acceptable level. But something that's always bothered me, was the amount of time it took me from point A to point B.


I was drawing through my entire school career, originally from drawing in Pen and in notebooks, until my stubborn butt decided to add in the pencil and ink at the same time in my artwork. To this day, I still have artwork in my folders, and binders of my personal studio that no one has ever seen or if they will ever be seen. More so, the 100's of pages I've drawn of Moonscar on paper and several other starting prototypes for the many other stories I want to tell. However with the lack posting, I'm afraid idk if I'll be able to generate enough interest...and it's already very hard to get discovered or catch peoples eyes now without word of mouth or money...

I just don't know what else I can do other than grow...

some folks say you have to keep practicing and creating a much more defined style. I do.

But I've seen artists who are ether way better than me or have a absolutely beautiful art style and but they don't get the views they really deserve...

Sorry guys I'm just ranting, alittle anxious and I shouldn't be...

I feel like theres alot of promises I need to keep...one of which showing the world what I can do...and those promises are being fought to be broken against me.

Anyways...look forward to more stuff soon. I'm gonna try my best to stay active so please..be patiant with me...I'm really trying ;3;

Thank you so much for following me this far ='3

Hello everyone

I just want to say I'm so sorry for my inactivity. It kills me inside that I can't provide new pages or artwork for that matter to the gallery like I have in the past. I really hope to change this asap, but lately i've run into a truck load of different problems, from a stress fracture on my foot to preparing for a second job, and getting ready for a financial hell gap. ATM i'm in pain and my head is clogged like a drain..@.@...

I am still drawing, but there are some pics and art that I will not reveal as of yet due to spoilers but...maybe I'm over thinking it...

Anyways
I'm revamping some of the RoT Official Tumblr page:
dmrotuniverse.tumblr.com/

This is not final but soon I'll get this set up correctly and folks will be able to use this site correctly XD;

Of course more pages of Rings of Tinuris will be coming soon

Commission Prices:
There will be a change in commission prices and a new commission sheet will be posted soon after the current Beach Bonazna special closes.

I still have commissions that need to be completed. Several in particular that has gone on since my EComs. I have not forgotten them and I'm so sorry they've taken so long to complete but I will complete them...

for now thats all I got. I'm gonna head to bed so my head will stop axing me questions....good night everyone 
In need of commissions!
