Drawing fan art and comics are my passion. The Mouse Trap comic series I've been doing over 13 years now. (2002-2015).

Any Support will be greatly Appreciated

Moral support, but support none the less!

After my little rant, after seeing one of my comics doing better in a place I never uploaded it, while the original sits unloved, I figured I'd follow up with a more positive journal entry, thanking everyone who has stuck with me these last 6 years (truth be told there wasn't much on this account the first 4 years).

So thank you to everyone reading this and hope you'll stick with me for however long I'm still here for.

I was checking through the people I watch and many have moved on, or dropped their accounts and I viewed most/all of them as way better than me in making art or comics and am sad they don't post anymore.

You may have noticed I'm trying to be more active, Dumping old comics here, making new comics, doing commissions and old requests and it's true. Things keep happening to me, my side of the world, but I keep using it as an excuse, so I want to try push myself so even if stuff is happening, I don't waste my free time playing Guild Wars 2 or something.

I also want to thank the two who commissioned me, making this my most successful year for commissions (I know, that's pathetic, but it's true) and with a 3rd one to work on now I hope I can make this a great year on Deviantart

Still haven't got many votes on my other Journal about the Pokémon girls close to Ash, maybe I should try something else. I already tried Gardevoir but she got taken down.

Anyone interested in a choose your own Pokémon comic adventure? Like a extremely slow lets play of a Pokémon games (I can't afford a 3Ds and ORAS, so it'd have to be White 2) where comments can vote on choices? Put into comic form?

Skyla May Hypnosis Commission by JamesDonaldson
Skyla May Hypnosis Commission
Period from Acceptance to Completion: 27th April 2015 to 05th May 2015

Commission for :iconeaglet1:

Strict warning because of subject matter compared to my usual stuff.

I wasn't going to upload this, but it's not like there's anything really "bad" about this image. The commission was for my older version of May (also previously commissioned by :iconeaglet1:) and Skyla being bound underwater while under Hypnosis...It's like the "Kaa" meme here on Deviant Art.

I didn't want to have just any random thing, so some prompting from Eaglet1 got the idea of Milotic and strangely, regardless of the subject matter, this was one of my quicker projects taking only 1 sketch draft and a very short time to complete.

This is actually not the first time I've drawn a Poke-girl bound by a Pokémon underwater, which I didn't even realise myself, but the first was Caitlin held by Dragonair in jamesdonaldson.deviantart.com/… where I simply thought it made sense for the image XD

Vote On Next Project by JamesDonaldson
Vote On Next Project
I have many unfinished Projects, but off course things happen and the backlog builds up.

That said, lets have a bit of fun. Instead of me jumping around on 10-15 projects, I've picked 4 where the prelim work is already done and you get to decide which one you want finished first. While I'm working on my next comic and commission, you guys can vote on any image and when I upload my next comic, I'll focus on the winning one. Once done, I'll post an updated Voting image and the process can start again.

You get to see what I'm working on behind the scenes and I get some direction in what people actually want me to complete. Win-win.

This is the story on a man who just wants to make people laugh.

Works on a comic for about 6 solid hours.

He uploads it onto Deviant Art, a place he's been apart of for 10 years and an active member for about 6 of those years, yet has a rather small following when comparing to other members who've been on for, say, only 4-5 years.

This man goes to sleep because he's tired and also expects there'll be comments in the morning.

He wakes up and as expected finds about 8 comments.

Goes about his day

By chance sees his comic on another site like funnymama AND GODDAMN JOYREACTOR WITH A BILLION F**KING COMMENTS!!

WHY AM I EVEN DOING THIS!!?

Look, people upload my stuff to other sites, I get that, I don't expect acknowledgement for doing fan art and comics on someone else's creations, but if you're going to be that guy that uploads my stuff else where, at least leave me a flipping comment. It's very annoying seeing one of my images getting more views and comments in a place I don't even visit, then in the place I personally uploaded it to.

My most/only popular image is my Pokémon Generation Girls fan art which has the most comments at 737! To put that in context, some guy uploaded that very image to his Google + account and already has 120 comments. plus.google.com/11567741348012…

At least link back here, or something! Geez.
Peach and Daisy Commission by JamesDonaldson
Peach and Daisy Commission
Period from Acceptance to Completion: 05th April 2015 to 12th May 2015

Commission for :iconboodestroyer89:

Which was for Daisy and Peach, in outfits similar to their Mario Strikers Charged Football looks and standing on the Mario Kart Stadium map. I had issue during the sketching process and wasn't happy with what I was coming up with. After wasting a week I came up with the poses in this image. Though not very complicated this took me far longer than the other commission I was working on at the time. Though not asked to, I did two versions, this one and one with their midriffs exposed.

Yes and it keeps going down, so I'm mass dumping comics here instead, sorry for the trouble.

No problem! I'm a new visitor who isn't caught up to speed, so I wasn't sure. :)
