Hi, everyone! I hope that you're having a good 2016 so far! :)

I check my email pretty regularly on deviantart, youtube, smackjeeves, etc. and I get messages from people nearly every day asking for a continuation of my original series, "The Surfer and the Merman." Even though the story ended a couple years ago people still seem to be interested in it. So I thought I'd finally give people what they want and create more content for "The Surfer and the Merman"!! 

This will be a Patreon funded project. For only $1 a month you can help fund "The Surfer and the Merman." The more patrons- the more content I create!
Patrons will be the first to see the never-before-seen Surfer x Merman art! I already have one brand new image complete, here is a preview:  Patreon by Teddybear-93 More to come! :D

Patrons can also vote for what I should create next! Not only will I create new Surfer x Merman content, I will also ask people if they want to see any other art, such as new OCs or some fan art :icondancingplz:

LINK TO MY PATREON--- www.patreon.com/teddybear?ty=h

((NOTE: This is my old deviantart account. Any new Patreon funded content will be posted on my new account :iconteddybear-93:))
Hello everyone! Hope you had a happy holiday. :iconchristmastreeplz:

I just want to remind you all that I no longer use this account. I still get new followers from time to time and I just want to let them know that I don't post any new content here. I only log on to this account about once a month so if you send me a private email it will take me a long time to respond! So if you want to follow me or send me private messages, please go to :iconteddybear-93: I only keep this account going because I have almost a decade of work posted here that people still enjoy. 

I also still get comments/messages from people asking why some of my work is missing, such as pages and chapters from The Surfer and the Merman. I feel like I've said this a hundred times but... they've been removed from staff a long time ago. All the pages and the chapters are available on my tumblr-- teddybear-93.tumblr.com/ If you're not a fan of tumblr, you can also read the comic here: www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofi…

2016 is going to be a very busy year for me. I'll be going on a long trip to Japan at the beginning of February and in March I'm getting married! :) I'm still planning on updating my comics-- such as my "Good Little Girl" Adventure Time comic and my original comic "See You Tomorrow." But the updates might take awhile, please bear with me! 

Have a Happy New Year!! :iconfireworkplz:
Friendly reminder that I created a new account and that I no longer use this one. I log into this one from time to time to check my messages but it is not very often. Just thought I'd let you guys know that if you private message me on here, it might take awhile for me to respond. I don't want to just delete this account because I have like, 7 years worth of art stored here. >_<

Anyways my new account is :iconteddybear-93:

And I also recently changed my tumblr username to match my dA name-- teddybear-93.tumblr.com/
My tumblr has all of "The Surfer and the Merman" chapters, comic pages, and videos that have been removed from dA and youtube.

OK, that's all I wanted to say! ^^
I created a new deviantart account for myself. ^_^

I was about 13-14 years old when I created this account and now I'm almost 22. That means this account is close to being a decade old. During those years I have created over 2000 posts... that's about 90 gallery pages. Every once in awhile I try to organize everything-- such as deleting old posts that I don't care about anymore or hiding them in sub-folders. But I end up spending hours on it and it still looks like a big mess. I have pages and pages of crappy old art and blurry convention photos that I posted ages ago. So I gave up trying to go through all that and decided just to move on :)

Don't worry, I'm not going to delete this account. Everything will still be here. I just won't be updating or adding anything new.

This is my new account: :iconteddybear-93:
(I used 93 because it is my birth year) :)

This means that if any of you are waiting for updates for my new comic series, "See You Tomorrow," or any other comics-- they will be posted on my new account, not here.
Or you can get updates for "See You Tomorrow" on smackjeeves.com: seeyoutomorrow.smackjeeves.com…
currently trying to sort through my deviantart gallery

I created this account about 7 years ago.... since then I've posted over 2000 images... that's about 90 gallery pages....   :iconuuughplz:

how will I ever sort through all of this

a lot of it is just crappy fan art I created when I was 13-14 years old

I should just skip it and create a new account and abandon this one, but I don't want to lose my 4500+ followers.... :iconcryingplz:

oh well.... back to work
Hey everyone, just wanted to say I'm taking a short break from commissions right now.
I recently moved to a new place and got a new job. My new job is very physically demanding and I come home exhausted every night... I barely have enough energy to draw commissions or even my own personal art projects. I have weekends off so I've been cramming all of my drawing time then but some weekends I get too busy with other things. Basically, I don't have the time and energy right now to take on any commissions.

(Especially since Bak-Anime is happening in January-- a couple months away-- and I want to feature more art prints and crafts at the artist alley table. I want to focus all my free time on working on that.)

HOWEVER... This does not mean my inbox is closed. You can still message me and leave a commission request, and I will consider it. I will accept it if:
1. I currently have enough time to do so
2. I'm not exhausted
3. I'm in the mood
So please feel free to ask, but please don't take it personally when I decline. It would be just because the timing is wrong.

My hiatus will be lifted probably in January once holidays are over and I am done preparing for Bak-Anime :)
Here's a tip for finding all 32 chapters of The Surfer and the Merman on my tumblr.

It seems like the tags on my tumblr don't work for everyone (probably depending on what device they are using) so some people are having difficulties finding a few chapters on my tumblr... but no worries! I have a page specifically for the chapters. Once you click on my tumblr page, look to the right of the screen. Beneath the "about me" part are a few links, and one of them is titled "The Surfer and the Merman chapters." All 32 chapters are available on that page.

I unfortunately cannot simply link you all to my tumblr because it is a nsfw blog and banned from deviantart... so sharing a link on here is impossible.

Hope this helps!
The printing company that I work with has updated their website so the old links to my books may be outdated, so here they are again:

The Surfer and the Merman Book 1: www.indyplanet.com/front/?prod…
If you were wondering why there is only one book for The Surfer and the Merman.. well, that is because the comic gets to be more "mature" later on and the printing company I use does not allow anything too graphic. It is not just this printing company alone, I have yet to find another printing company that will let me print the entire series.
This comic book contains about half of the series + extra art

Camp Novak-- Band-Aids for Spider Bites: www.indyplanet.com/front/?prod…
This comic book contains ALL the pages + extra art
I know I've already shared this information multiple times, so if you already know about all my links then this information is old news to you and you can just ignore this post ^^

I just thought I'd share these links again because I still get messages/comments every week from people asking, "Why is this chapter missing?" or "Where is the next page?"
Long story short, a few pages and chapters are no longer available on deviantart because they are NSFW.

Fortunately, I have back-ups.

The Surfer and the Merman Comic (the whole thing, with no missing pages) : thesurferandthemerman.smackjee…

The Surfer and the Merman Written Chapters (all 32 Chapters) : They are all on my tumblr, and unfortunately I cannot link my tumblr on deviantart because my blog is NSFW. However, you can easily search for my tumblr on google. My username is the same as my deviantart username and all the Chapters are available on their own page on my blog, under the title, "The Surfer and the Merman Chapters." If you cannot find the page then try searching tags on tumblr.

The Surfer and the Merman Comic is also available on my youtube account in slideshow videos: www.youtube.com/channel/UC7kgA…

Okay hopefully this helps!
If you're ever reading a doujinshi (aka fan created comic) of mine on here and a few pages are missing, it is probably because it has been taken down.
My youtube account, BoxOfChocolatesXxX, has a back-up of nearly all of my doujinshi that I've created. I also have a few back-ups on my tumblr account, but they are more difficult to search for (I post a lot of stuff on tumblr ;P). And on my youtube, I have a section just for doujinshi so it makes things even easier: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…

I also want to thank you all again for 2000+ subscribers to my youtube channel :)

(I also have youtube back-ups for my original comics as well, such as The Surfer and the Merman, Camp Novak, etc. But those are also available on my smackjeeves account while my doujinshis are not)

----RULES-----

1. Commissions are for digital copies only. Images will not be printed and mailed to you.

2. NSFW art is allowed. However if it is too NSFW, I will not be able to post it on deviantart.

3. No MPREG.

4. No NSFW Furry Art. I am not a Furry Artist, but I have drawn Furry commissions in the past.

5. No Sequential Art. If you want me to create a scene from your story, it must be in comic page form. (Options are above.) This does not mean I will decline a commission because it is a scene from your story; it just means I won't do multiple commissions for a scene from your story. The reason why is that it is easier to draw a scene in comic page form instead of in a series of single sequential images.

6. 2-3 characters max per commission (besides comic pages). Any more characters and it counts as a second commission.
 
7. 5 panels max for comic pages. Although it may vary, it depends. (for example some panels can be larger or smaller depending on the scene; if a panel is super small it won't count)

6. Please provide reference images for Original Characters. If you do not have any images and this is the first time your character is being drawn, then please provide a detailed description. I do not need any reference images for fan art, I will find them myself.

8. If you want me to draw a scene from a fanfiction or original story, please do not send me the entire text file. Please describe in detail the image that you want instead. (this rule excludes comic pages)

9. I will not redraw an image if it doesn't come out the way that you want, but I will do small changes if there is anything wrong. Please take a look at my gallery before requesting a commission so that you know what I am capable of.

10. If you have any questions that you feel are not answered here, feel free to ask. :)

11. And last but not least, I may decline a commission offer. Sometimes I am just not comfortable drawing certain things; please do not be offended >_<
I created a Hannibal Cosplay Blog about two months ago and I recently reached 50+ followers
And then I realized I never got around to advertising my new blog on here
So here it is: hannibalcosplay.tumblr.com/

It is a tumblr blog dedicated strictly for just cosplay in the Hannibal fandom-- where people can submit their own cosplay photos and where I go on the hunt to reblog photos that I find
I reached 2000 subscribers on my youtube account (the one specifically for my art/comics/doujinshi). Since I can't think of any clever video ideas for a "Thank-You" video, I thought I'd just say my thanks here. :iconsweatplz:

Thanks again! I also recently reached 900 followers on tumblr. So close to 1000! :0

:iconcelebrateplz: :iconyaaayplz:

my youtube: BoxOfChocolatesXxX

Since my tumblr is nsfw, I cannot link it here. But if you're interested, my username is the same as my deviantart username-- xxx-teddybear-xxx
Just a little under 2 days until the voting process for the Supernatural t-shirt design contest ends
The top 20 designs will go to the next round

My designs:

supernaturaldesignchallenge.co…

supernaturaldesignchallenge.co…

Even if I don't win, I'm still planning on having these designs available on my cafepress shop so they can still become t-shirts ^^

Thank you to all who have voted so far! :)
The voting process of the Supernatural Design Contest has finally begun!
I entered two t-shirt designs:

supernaturaldesignchallenge.co…

supernaturaldesignchallenge.co…


I'm not asking you to vote for mine, but I would be forever grateful. Just thought I'd make this journal post to advertise it. :)

just want to get a few things straight

I'm completely fine with random private messages. You want to chat with me? That's totally fine. Have questions? I love to give tips and help out as much as I can. I'm also fine with the "you've been tagged!" messages and surveys, etc. You can basically send me almost anything and I'd be fine with it.

There is one thing, though, that I won't respond to. And that is flirty messages. I don't mean, "Oh you're so pretty" or "You're so hot" or anything like that. I mean messages that are usually sent to cam-show girl chat rooms and stuff like that. Messages where they "want to have a good time." There are sites for that, go there instead of coming to me.

Ever since I started posting cosplay photos that are 'mature', I've been getting a lot of messages like that. Almost instantaneously after posting a photo. (And that's kind of expected.)

People seem to assume the reason I have those photos:

1. I'm single and want to attract other singles on this site

2. I'm really horny so I'm posting these so someone will message me

I'm actually not single. I have a boyfriend. We've been dating for over a year now and things are going fantastic. But even if I was single, I still would not be interested in meeting new people like that on deviantart.

And no, I'm not posting these photos so people will start a random RP with me and start having internet sex or anything like that. I'm posting these photos because I'm proud of my cosplay, I love to model, and I love eroticism.

So yeah, I get a lot of messages that start off friendly but get weird REALLY FAST.

Okay, you could be the nicest guy... BUT I'M NOT INTERESTED. Sorry. I'm not here to entertain.



Just thought I'd post a quick update about a few things ^^

First of all, all the chapters of my original story, The Surfer and the Merman, are now available on my tumblr. That's right, all 32 chapters. No more having to jump back and forth from deviantart to tumblr to read it all. It is all available in one convenient location now :) Sorry it took me so long to post all the chapters on there... it was mostly because I didn't want to bombard my followers with the posts (and also because I simply would forget to update from time to time eh heh....) Anyways, my tumblr username is the same as my deviantart username: xxx-teddybear-xxx. And I have a page specifically for the chapters.

Next, I recently became on official model for Pixel Vixens. My first set (with my Hatsune Miku cosplay) was posted on the Pixel Vixens site today ^_^. My next set with my Fionna cosplay (Adventure Time) will most likely be posted sometime in April.

And finally, my new comic, Off the Beaten Path, has its own smackjeeves page now: offthebeatenpath.smackjeeves.c… 

So I just logged onto deviantart, and seven of my deviations got removed all at once. Seven.

(a few The Surfer and the Merman comic pages and a few other yaoi-related stuff)

I'm just going to remind you guys again that I have other sites where I post my art besides here on deviantart.

Especially since I have been suspended from deviantart before, and I can imagine it happening again in the future... or worse.

I've shared these link before in the past, but the links in my older journal posts are old and will not work any more.

So, here's my sites:

my tumblr (where I post ALL my art, comics, written stories, cosplay, etc.): (deviantart won't let me share the link for some reason, but my username is xxx-teddybear-xxx)

my artwork youtube channel: www.youtube.com/user/BoxOfChoc…

my comics website (where you can read The Surfer and the Merman, Sad Clown, etc. without any deleted pages): www.smackjeeves.com/profile.ph…

Sorry for the inconvenience... but I can't really control it. And trust me, if you are looking to read a certain comic and some of the pages are missing, these sites will be really handy.




Fem!Romano, Hatsune Miku, and Miyuki Takara cosplay prints are now available at the UGshop, an etsy site created by Jeff. (my boyfriend, in case you don't know his name)

www.etsy.com/listing/172047916…

Sizes of Prints vary, but none are larger than 8x11"
Printed on glossy photo paper

I also take requests. If you want to own an art print/cosplay print from my gallery, I will make it available on etsy.

I will also answer any questions you may have, in case you guys want to start an etsy store of your own. I'll try my best though, since I'm pretty new to it as well. :iconnervouslaughplz:

So my Aunt and Uncle, who know way more about earning money on youtube than I do, persuaded me to create a youtube channel featuring my Chihuahua, Josie.

They think that since Josie is so petite and unique that she might become popular on the internet. Deformed animals seem to popular (like Grumpy Cat and the pirate kitten with one eye), and well, Josie with her big buggy eyes and freakishly small body fits in with the deformed category XD

And if not, its still fun to put these videos together and share them with people. :)

LittleJo Youtube Channel: www.youtube.com/channel/UCne5b…

How Josie came into our lives: One day I was driving to my parent's house and I nearly hit her with my car. Luckily I was in a residential neighborhood, so I wasn't driving that fast. This happens from time to time, stray dogs are common where I live. But for her I just had to pull over and help her out. She was just so tiny and pathetic looking. She didn't run away when I approached her, she merely cowered in fear. I immediately took her home. Over time we tried looking for her previous owners, but had no luck. We considered finding her a new home but none of us wanted to part with her.

Josie was already over a year old when we found her. We took her to the vet to have them examine one of her hind legs, since she constantly limps and never has it touching the ground. The vet said that it was too late to fix it, since it should have been treated a long time ago. We're assuming an accident happened when she was a puppy and as she grew bigger, her leg grew to be deformed. Fortunately, Josie still can run really fast and her leg doesn't bother her at all. We're hoping that she doesn't have complications with it in her senior years.
