Holy cow. This years big badge season has been .. big. 
I had fully intended to post up a DA journal entry with details, and my badge ordering page, and all that jazz, but my BlizzCon badge slots sold out in LESS THAN FOUR DAYS. Four. Days. Thats 150+ badge orders. I was supposed to close them sooner, but I was on the side of the road with my husband and a car with a very broken wheel. (not a flat, the actual wheel itself was shattered from work-debris that was lying in the road) So, they ended up staying open a few hours longer than they were supposed to, allowing another months worth of work to trickle through. 
Logically I guess this means I'm still not charging enough for badges, or .. I dunno. Logic is hard.
Last year I had people pick up badges in person from me at the convention itself, so it they were all for people that attended it, whereas this year we've been mailing them all out to people, so I have no idea. I really really hope I see a bunch of them inside the convention hall so I can just scream out HEY I MADE THAT! Maybe I'll make stickers to put on the backs of the badges I find at the con, as a "Hey I found the artist!".
I may just go back to the pick-up method next year. Not sure yet. (This would save on shipping cost stuff)
As of writing this, I have yet to post completed badges to my DA account, but at this point there are just SO MANY OF THEM it will take me aaagggeess, so for now they are all being posted on my tumblr as and when I finish batches. 

I wanted to re-open badge orders around September. 
I really, really wanted to.
But I can't. I still have too many to do, and BlizzCon is coming up.. fast. It feels fast. 
It feels awful to admit that I don't have the time to get more done, I know lots and lots of people have asked if/when I'll be reopening, and I always gave the same answer of "I'm not sure", well, now I'm sure, and I'm sorry. ): 

): ): ): ): 

Many many sad faces of sadness.

However, I will still be auctioning off the last two badges of the season! I've made a neat looking frame edit, one with silver and one with gold edging, and I will put them up on separate auction days and do bidding via my twitch stream page, just like last year. The dates for these have yet to be decided upon, but I will post on Twitter when they are (likely middle of Oct). The Auction winner badges will be for pick up at BlizzCon only.



FUTURE STUFF! 
In the period after the BlizzCon craziness, I will take a little time off to play Warlords of Draenor, then get back on the badge/con art wagon with preparations for the Texas Furry Fiesta. I'm hoping to open up furry toon/chibi themed badges on my FA page, to match the theme for the 2015 convention, but that isn't a promise as yet. I've got lots of print ideas, and other little plans for the con, but the busybusybusy never ends. 
I'm planning to re-open the sketch-monday commissions around this same time, too, for both Warcraft portraits and the furry genre.

My first DigiSketch Monday was .. interesting. I screwed up. I was offering portraits for less than the cost of my convention badges, and they were supposed to reflect that in the time it took to draw them. They were supposed to be quickie sketchy things, hence, being called sketches, and max out at about 2 hours for each. I ended up spending an average of 5 hours on them. I'm apparently very bad at limiting myself. 
I had full intention of doing this again next week but with much firmer rules in place (for myself), but, as it just so happens, BlizzCon was announced today. These sketchy days were supposed to be for my off-season, but I only got in a single days worth of orders, before getting bombarded with con-badge requests. And so .. DigiSketch Mondays will be cancelled in favour of Con-badges, most likely. I really enjoyed the not-really-sketches I did though, and will hopefully offer occasional affordable commission slots for them, sporadically. 

Regarding the BlizzCon Badges themselves: I AM NOT YET OPEN TO ORDERS. 
I need time to figure out this years ordering system, spreadsheets, shipping, etc etc. This year, I know for sure, my husband will be in charge of all the ~businessy~ things, like order information, client correspondence, and all that jazz. It will leave me free to just concentrate on getting the work done and not stress and freak out over piles of emails. 

I WILL announce on here when orders are open, and in what format you can put in your request. (might be email- but will most likely be a web form again). I'll update this journal when I get more information and/or have sorted out my brain .. thing. 

Conventions and life dramas are over, and the new badge season hasn't quite started yet, so I’m going to be offering something new! Some days I may stream these on my twitch channel, but sometimes I like to make mistakes while not-being-watched, hah.
Warcraft badge orders will open up later on, and I'm still doing some furry badges in the midst of all this, as well as working on lots of other stuff. Busy busy busy! 

AHHH! Its TODAY! The first Digi-Sketch day! Depending on how this goes, I may make some changes on how I do things, like slot allocations, or numbers, rules, etc, so, we'll see! 

Monday Sketchday!

Every Monday I will be selling small and sketchy coloured digital portraits. There is a limited number of slots, and I will keep track of them here in this journal (and also on my FurAffinity (FA) account, so two here, two there). I will be taking on this work and completing it same day, which means if you wish to take a commission spot, you will need character details and payment ready to go as soon as I accept your order (or your spot will go to someone else). To get a spot, post on this journal entry for today's openings, it will likely be a first come first serve basis. As time is of the essence, character complexity is a concern - for Warcraft portraits I encourage simple armor/transmog, complex details will take longer than I intend to spend on these pieces. I may alter the gear myself to keep the work within my allotted time frame.

Its been, gosh, 10 months since I wrote a journal update? I also haven't submitted any new work recently. .. well, before today's mass upload.
I really need to set some kind of weekly reminder or something to update my DA. 

CURRENT STUFF!
My Badge orders for BlizzCon opened, and then.. uh.. closed! All what seemed very suddenly. I received a massive number of orders and then had to stop taking any more due to more Real-Life complications. My husband had brain surgery in August and I was his acting-nurse for the weeks beforehand and then recovery afterwards, so trying to balance that and work was extremely difficult. I'm still trying to catch up and get them all complete even now, with only 2 weeks left til we leave for Cali! But I now have MY OWN LITTLE BADGE WORKSHOP! I ended up investing in getting myself a decent lamination machine, paper cutter, lanyard cutter, etc etc. So, I now have everything I need to print and finish all the convention badge art I make, all by myself, in my own home. :D

FUTURE STUFF!
I'll be pretty busy post-BlizzCon, and won't be able to take any open commissions. I will however be prepping to do my first ever convention as an artist, with a table, in a dealers room/artist alley! It will be for a Fur-con, here in Dallas. I've not really ever delved into the furry world before this, but I've done a lot of anthro related art regarding Warcraft races, and its a challenge I think could be super fun to take on. So, I will likely be doing badge art for that convention, as well as working on misc prints to sell. But I'll share more details regarding that as and when I know them. 

If you were sent here via my Twitter or Website, Hi! 
Welcome to my .. um.. Gallery. I'll have a proper website portfolio thing soon, I promise. 

I had plans to take commissions, get wallpapers done, cookies baked, cards painted.
Medical stuff is dumb, ended up having a very close call and was hospitalised for a few days.

I will likely take some work on in the beginning of the year to recoup costs.
And money is tiiigght, so, I will likely be opening up a few commission slots for the pre-holiday season, to ease bills and stuff.
Not sure if I'm going to just accept whatever, or have a set 'Get this for so-and-so $$', but we'll see. Just a heads up, if you're into it.

IN OTHER NEWS, PANDAS!
A while back, a friend and I won second place in one of shirt.woot's derbys, and my Noodle-Panda got printed on a shirt! This week its been reprinted in a side sale as a TOTE BAG!
shirt.woot.com/offers/oodles-o…
PANDAS PANDAS PANDAS! I will have a noodle bag to put my noodles in. :D
It wont be on sale for long, so get it while you can if you want it, it may not appear ever again. ):
Hi there! Welcome to my new DA page, it will hopefully be updated a helluva more often than my old one!
With my website still in a state of flux, I have had no 'gallery', so it has been impossible to share artwork I have done recently or otherwise. So, with some prodding, I have made a new account under my much more well known name of 'Noxychu'.
This page will mostly be of WoW art, including work I have done for ZAM/Wowhead.com, including old webcomics. Commissions might sometimes be available, but I wouldn't count your chickens. (aka, please don't send me a note asking for one, if I open up spots, I will post right here)


AND MY GIANT UPLOAD IS DONE! WOOOO! That took daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyys.
Worth it! Enjoy.

Noxy xx

A mass upload will take place over the next few days, I will try my best to keep things in as chronological order as I can, but, things will probably be a bit mixed up by the time I am done.

x Noxy

Edit: Oh hey, I think I screwed up the order already! And I'm not even halfway done! wooo.
Edit2: K, will upload more tomorrow.
Edit3: I think its time to upload all the masses of badge art, now. It'll go into a separate folder so it doesn't clog everything else up.
