Progress so Far
First off, thank you guys so much, you are awesome as always!
I'm still getting supportive, encouraging messages from the last update about life outside of FE. Thanks for sharing your struggle and success stories, how much FE means to you, and your kind words. Been spending the past month seriously looking into what it would take to for art to be a full-time job in my life. Again, I'm hesitant to share about my personal life, (especially finances,) but I'm not the only one who wants to make a living doing what they love - and I hope sharing my experience will help others working towards the same goal.

The first thing Husband and I did, as basic as it sounds, is review our monthly budget. Regardless of where the money came from, we needed to know the bare minimum I had to bring in so we could cover our monthly bills. The total came to be three times what my art income currently is.
Next step was to figure out how much time I had to increase the art income to meet our budget. (In this

Mysteries and Scandals-Our Gang
Broadcast in the 1990s on the E! Entertainment Television channel.  The inspiration for the Get Along Gang concept.
   Some people didn't care for host AJ Benza's unsentimental and occasional mocking narration but I thought he did well to present a respectful tone to the profiled stars' entertainment accomplishments without being too syrupy or condoning the behavior that led to the stars' personal and professional downfalls. 
The history and the dark side and tragic lives of some of the cast members from Hal Roach's "Our Gang"/"Little Rascals".  TV-PG for language and thematic material.

Anti-Succubus Implement
Characters modeled roughly after Dave and Liz Lillie's Dreamkeepers graphic novel.  Striped fur is always fun to see, but not so fun to draw and color.   My usual: mechanical pencil on office bond, inked with a Pilot V5 and scanned in greyscale at 300 dpi.  Line cleaning and coloring with Microsoft Paint version 6.  Reduced to 1100 pixels tall, then add text.  Yes, I know there's no such thing as green felines; there's also no such thing as creatures conducting battles inside your head, either.
Loading...
Any characters I create or depict are Up For Grabs.  I don't bother copyrighting anything, and I have no intention of "squatting" on something just to be dickish.

Of course, characters that are already copyrighted, such as Warner Brothers' Lola Bunny or Walt Disney's Zootopia or Nellie Kitchen's Furry Experience webcomic, are fan art.  And as fan art, it's good form to acknowledge the rightful creator somehow, either in the description or on the artwork itself.  I hope I've done that consistently; if not, let me know, and I'll make it right.  Fair's fair, y'know.

However, for any of the bunny / kitty / whatever characters I've created, they're Public Domain.  One of the big, beautiful things about Deviant Art is how much inspiration there is on display.  So much poignant, meaningful, inspiring pieces, both with copyrighted characters and with "pulled from thin air" ones, that I get ideas.  My thinking gets bent into new directions, and I'm delighted at how very creative and ingenious the artists here are.  Therefore, the dead-last thing I should be doing is going all Ebenezer Scrooge and kvetching at deviants to not touch my stuff.  Touch it all you want, it's there to maybe take your thinking in a new direction, or spark an inspiration.  Happy pickings, peoples. :)

Illness
Nobody stays healthy all the time.  My usual: mechanical pencil on office bond, inked with a Pilot V7, scanned at 300 dpi in greyscale, reduced to 16-bit color for line cleaning.  Line cleaning, coloring and rescaling to 1100 pixels high done with Microsoft Paint version 6.

Blindfold
Lola Bunny works on her shooting, blindfolded.  Good defense won't let her get a clear look at the hoop, so she needs to develop muscle-memory to shoot accurately from "sweet spots" on the floor.  Mechanical pencil on office bond, inked with a Pilot V7, scanned at 300 dpi in greyscale, reduced to 8-bit color for line cleaning.  The two grey lines are "clean" lines, while the rest are "dirty" lines.

Robobun
A robot bunny.  They make a robot cat and a robot dog, so a robot bunny can't be far behind.

Do you have a reference drawing of your fursona? The green bunny there on your icon?

Thanks, Valiant. Though, at my age, 2/3 of my life is over. I'm now marching toward my grave. *Hope I get a heated coffin ...*

Ah. Hello! c: I can't help but notice you give really good constructive comments on pictures with Lola Bunny, so I was wondering if you could give some critique with my two pieces with her? ^^

No prob, Trevor. I don't always get to things right away, either. :)
