January Commission Slots - CLOSED

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 14, 2018, 9:19 PM

UPDATE: All the slots are now closed. Thank you guys!
Hey, guys! Commission slots are now open again, and I'm trying out a different method of organizing requests using a public page on Trello. Any requests you give me via the usual note system will be saved on a private Trello page for me to refer to. I think this way my page will remain clean and I don't have to spread myself out too much. I'm still trying to figure out the best system for me, so I think I'll just go ahead and allow notes to come in and I'll learn as I go.

Here's the Trello page with the ToS, prices, my Paypal email, and available slots.… As always, I urge all who are interested to peruse the info before sending me a note. I also recommend checking up on this page every so often to see the commission status. Again, I'm still figuring this out, so it's possible I may go back to my previous method if this doesn't work for me. Hopefully, it will.

Thank you for your interest.

Life Update

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 13, 2017, 3:38 PM

Hey, guys!

It's pretty obvious things have been a bit quiet here. The past couple of weeks have been extremely hectic, not only with my last week of school but also with last minute renovations at home. But I'd say it was all worth it.

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life. After all of my trials, tribulations, good times, bad times, literal blood, sweat and, tears, I am officially a college graduate, along with my sister :iconscribblywobbly: and our mom. All three of us walked across the stage in our caps and gowns, with our family and friends there showing their love and support.

I personally want to thank my friend :iconweretoons101: and her mom for being able to make it and show your support when I was worried you weren't able to. Seeing you there after the ceremony seriously made my day. Thank you so much!

I also want to thank all of my friends and even passing acquaintances for showing their support as well during this 9-year journey. You know who you all are.

I also want to extend thanks to everyone in my family for the unending amount of love and encouragement and for putting with my complaints through it all. Particularly, I thank my grandpa for his love and encouragement and financial support when I was struggling with financial aid.

Most particularly, I want to thank my late grandma Vivian for everything she's done for me. Without her, I don't think I would've gotten as far as I did. It still saddens me that she is no longer here to see me walk and all I've achieved, but I know if she were she would be so immensely proud. Even as I type this, my old feelings of grief well up in me, making me feel regret for not talking to her as much as I could have. But I'm not going to dwell on that. I'm going to be happy that she was there as long and as much as she was. Grandma, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'll always miss you and love you deeply.

Well, things are finally starting to settle down at home. We have no more outstanding deadlines to meet, no assignments to do. So, the question remains: what now? I do know for sure I want to get back to my personal projects, and I do still have two commissions to complete, but I'm making some progress on them. After that, I'll open up a new batch and take at least a month off to relax. Yeah, there's still student debt to think about, but I'm not going to worry about that yet.

The world is my oyster now. I'm taking my first tentative steps into the real world. It's going to be hard, but I'll make it as good as I can. My aunt gave me a couple of good adulthood management books for me to read.

Right now it's just good to be free.

Thank you all for being here.

-Earth Gwee


So, because I've been taking on one commission at a time with this batch, getting through it has been more slow going that it should be. So, I'm gonna try something I probably should've thought of a long time ago, and that's complete every commission's sketch stage at the same time. Basically, do one sketch, then the next, and then move on to each one's inking stage, and so on. I think that'll help me maximize work time so I can get through this batch faster.
Just want to let people know I'm still working on commissions. The current one is so far taking up a lot of time due to the slew of details and my wanting to do it justice. I should have it finished within the week and I'll be able to move onto the next ones.
Has anyone else felt the dilemma of wanting to post a piece that's part of a project, a piece that you really like and are proud of, but at the same time don't for fear of spoilers? Because fuck me, I really want to post this awesome piece but fear spoiling people on the story that probably won't see the light of day for at least a few years. Mehhhhh... =w=;;
I've been taking things pretty easy lately, but that won't stop me from opening up commissions again. I'll have new slots ready this weekend, so if you want a commission from me, best be ready by then.

Next month and beyond will be a bit iffy because that's when I'll start job hunting.
So, four months ago, we did the first volume of Super Mario Adventures. Well, after that much waiting, here's volume 2 that I helped make with the Dub Matters group. Enjoy! :D

Hi, I'm a huge fan of your Rayman art, I just love them to bits. I came here wondering. How do I use points? like, how do I get them, how can I access them. how do I even begin? I'm clearly new, so help would be very nice :D
SmugLookingBarrel Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2018  Hobbyist Writer
I can answer this: if you want to buy points, hover your mouse over the "shop" tab, directly to the right of the search bar in the top left. The first option you should see is "points", click that to be taken to a page where you can buy them. If you want to give points to someone, there's a "give" button on the top right of their DA page. Paying for commissions is more complicated, and different deviants handle it differently. Usually, they have a donation option with the description of the commission and the amount to donate, but please please read through the deviant's commission information or ask them about how they want you to pay. There's a certain process by which points gotten through a commission can be converted back into real money, and that's what many deviants offering commissions want.

thank you for this information, it helps a lot!
EarthGwee Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I stay as far away from points as possible, so you're asking the wrong person.

Hi gwee, so a friend of mine who you probably know Boogeyboy1 and he made a character who was inspired by your character Dr. Malloy, so I came to ask, are characters who were inspired by other characters allowed?
EarthGwee Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, absolutely.

Hey,Gwee! I saw your toon human form in my dream last night.
You were a scientist and main creator of this group called The Heroes of Peace. You had these 3 ninja girls with magic powers and Rayman was the new recruit for the team and learning the ways of being a part of the Heroes of Peace.

What do you think?

Hi there, EarthGwee! My name is Robert Jackson, and I'm the casting director, as well as the head voice director for an audiobook project I'm developing as an ongoing online series of videos for YouTube, that will be represented by my newly formed indie project group/Discord server, StationSquareStudios! The summary for Mario & Sonic: Heroes Unite! is that it's basically an audio roleplay based on the most popular Mario/Sonic fanfiction story originally written by the original author, Azurixx, between 2010 to 2013. By the way, I'm not even kidding when I say this fanfic has a total of 100 fun-filled chapters over the span of three whole years to its credit! But, the main reason I'm even mentioning all this is because I have been looking for casting prolific and professional voice actors on this project to help contribute and audition for so many characters on this series and you're one of those lucky talented folks I'm approaching for paid voice over work for my project! I've posted a casting call for this project over on Casting Call Club where character audition spots are still available and will remain open until the closing date, Sunday, October 22nd, at 11:59:59 PM! Feel free to message me back at anytime you feel that you're interested to partake in this project! We can privately discuss about whether it should be a paying or non-paying job for you, but always feel free to communicate back to me! Well, that's all I can say at the moment! Have a great weekend, EarthGwee!

Unfortunately, I am way too bogged down by other obligations in my life right now, but thanks for the offer.

Have you heard about Ancel's next plan of doing a new Rayman game?

Yes, I have. And I cannot wait! :D
