deuce & ye

Hey guys!! 

I know it hasn’t really been a minute since I’ve been posting like left and right this last month or so, but I’ve been getting a lot of notes and emails and all sorts of stuff so I figured I’d just throw down some quick updoots to get you all in the know (or at least my version of the know, we’ll figure that part out later)

FIRST OFF I want to thank every one of you out there who’s supported my art either through your likes, reblogs/retweets, and even Patreon support (which has gotten up to $200 a month wow!!) It’s only been like what, a year since I started posting art to the furry fandom and it’s been just a heck of a ride the entire way. Like I nearly went from 400 followers about a year ago to literally almost 7 THOUSAND FOLLOWERS???

If you had asked me if any of this was possible on my end about a year ago, frankly I’d tell you it was just a far off fantasy. BUT JOKES ON PAST ME BECAUSE YOU GUYS ARE MAKING ME CRY IRL EVERY DAY. SO JUST THANKS. WOW. I LOVE ALL OF YOU!! 

(and if you’ve been one of those people behind the scenes pushing my butt in the right direction, I love you just that much more. you all know who you are uwu)

SO AS YOU’VE PROBABLY NOTICED I’ve been doing a butt ton of art (specifically commissions!) very recently, and it’s been a heck of a refreshing change for me to just do some quick lil animated bits and layout stuff ! But the real world is scary and wants money so i’m also on the hunt for a more permanent job situation while I manage some of these upcoming projects and commissions. I will say definitively I’ll be closing off commissions for the upcoming month (but I’ll get to that in a sec)

The big one being my Chuck and Deen reboot, which is now officially going under the name HOW I LEFT TOWN (AND GOT LOST FOREVER)

The comics going under a serious overhaul in terms of tone, style and writing, but you’ll be seeing a return of all your fav characters in something I’m hoping will reflect a lot of the themes my artworks been giving off this last year. It’ll be dramatic, it’ll be super gay, and it’ll have lots of spooks! So here’s hoping I can deliver something special when I find the time to get posting.

The elephant in the room for me atm is my unfinished senior film that’s been sitting in limbo since I graduated from SVA. It’s literally just waiting to be finished (after some technical issues regarding time and coordination) and tbh it’s just a load of demo reel/portfolio material waiting to be unbenched, so I’ve decided to make that my first priority before my next big contract this coming month. I’m hoping I’ll have a good film to show for and finally a finished project under my belt by the beginning of July, so cheer along and look forward to some dumb teen comedy about vampires and terrible pizza!!

From there, I can definitely see myself dedicating my free time to making progress on my new comic and just tons more of the same kind of stuff you’ve been seeing me post recently. Here’s hoping I can pay back all the kindness and love I’ve received this last year uwu


Need to finish my student film before I get rolling on the new Chuck and Deen to get them sick career opportunities. Commissions are kind of closed. I love all of you. Deuces. 

  • Clubs Deuce: When you become famous you’re called a legend because your leg ends
  • Diamonds Droog: What?
  • Clubs Deuce: Your leg. It ends.
  • Diamonds Droog: I’m not a linguist but I think that’s wrong
  • Clubs Deuce: Are you saying your leg doesn’t end?
  • Diamonds Droog: I mean. at some point it does, yes.
  • Clubs Deuce: then what’s the problem

Just a few amazing tanks from the tv show Tanked.  I used to be an aquarium specialist/maintenance guy (yes yes like Deuce Bigalow) and have worked on some incredibly ornate aquariums - not quite this epic though. –R

What is going on with Ever After High’s design team??? 

This is an Ever After DISASTER! I understand they are going for a different appeal than Monster High, but you can still have classy-elegant clothes without being dowdy and frumpy. Poor Alistair, I was so excited for him and he looks like a Ken doll wearing Dexter’s jacket and Hunter’s pants/boots/satchel. I wont lie though, Alistair is definitely coming home with me if I see him, he’ll just be a very expensive Ken doll that I’ll own. Bunny… what a tragic, frumpy looking character. For being Wonderlandians, they are definitely under designed. There were some redeeming designs like Darling, but for the most part everything looked so plain and or gaudy. There were a lot of misses here.

Monster High pretty much nailed it. Please take me to the freak show! Freak du Chic is a winner!!! Jinafire the fire breather, Honey Swamp looks like a living marionette doll. Toralie is a tightrope walker, Frankie’s a magician. Boo York is a pretty stellar line too, Nefera is coming! But I’m more excited about Boo York Deuce!!! He has the dotd hairstyle and he looks smashing. Deuce vinyl, adorable YES! The only negative is Fright Mares, please, that needs to go, ASAP. Is that Monster High’s way of trying to fight My Little Pony? Because it is awful!

It’s not a competition, but Monster High thoroughly wiped the floor with Ever After High.  There’s so much to talk about, but those were my top concerns.

And I’ll say it, Rosabella looks like a white version of the backgrounder everyone thought she was with minor color tweaks and glasses. People don’t like me anyways, whatever lol

anonymous asked:

Deacon, both as a professional and as a Grady, do you think it's okay that regardless of never having done it before, Earl's response to learning Ty had lied was to hit him? And perhaps more importantly, what do you think it says that Ty's response to his justification was simply "yes, sir"?

Deuce: No, I don’t think it was okay. And I think my brother has spent two thirds of his life saying ‘yes, sir.’ He’s literally been trained to accept what is given from those in authority. It kept him alive, but it made it impossible for him to reintegrate into civilian or family life fully. That’s … that’s sometimes the price our warriors pay for us.

do you ever see someone you don’t know like at the store or walking to class in your favorite band shirt and you just…like…*pounds chest twice with fist before throwing up deuces* yes
