What is this? Art from oakie?
Well, this is the first of about 10  things waiting to be uploaded but I suppose this is the most urgent out of those - a breeding picture between two of Jullelin 's lovely Obertaurers; RD's Mimic and RPS Crown Prince!

I was so delighted to get this breeding as it means for the first time in two years, OBS is going to house a non-dutch warmblood :noes: I feel like this is a positive move and it'll bring a lot of new possibilities into the stables as we are lucky enough to have secured another breeding to two other lovely horses as well, so there will be two new Obertaurers!

Another thing I hope you'll all look forward to is my shift from digital to traditional. I'm sure at least some of you will know that I do pet portrait commissions, and they have been taking up a lot of my time recently. Well, I have purchased a set of polychromos and I have been testing the waters with them to see about doing some HARPG art with them, and it's going well so far!

Keep your eye out for some traditional work from me in the future, possibly even including this foal!

Thank you once again Jullelin for this wonderful opportunity, and I hope you like this, and will love the foal that I create ^^

Oak's Personal Updates

Sun Apr 19, 2015, 3:02 PM
First off, hello everyone and kudos to everyone that's noticed I haven't been very active lately. Some of you may already know why I haven't been very active here but actually, it has been for arty reasons! Over the last two weeks (my Easter holidays) I have been trying to finish up all my stuff for my higher art, averaging one piece a day, sized between A6 and A2! For my portfolio stuff I've had to complete an expressive unit, which I themed around Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro, and then a design unit for which I made a scale model of a music stand. For each of these final pieces I've had to do odds and ends of development work which to be fair is a pain in the ass!
Additionally I have got a boatload of commissions, currently sitting at 15 headshots and 1 fullbody, with various deadlines but I should be able to start churning them out as of Monday when the bulk of my art is complete and the rest is done in class.
As I've not been doing join.mes, due to not doing any digital work (I had to dust off my tablet the other day when I went to use it to make a photo manip for a drawing), I have been contemplating starting doing more livestreams, and maybe even starting up a youtube channel for timelapses. Is this something people would like? Or would you prefer another platform for streaming? (please make suggestions though do note that the platform needs to be able to feed off a webcam I have set up through a USB. I might consider getting something more like a small video cam corder as my DSLR would have HUGE files that I'm not prepared to store on my computer and it would be very hard to set up, but this would probably only work for youtube.
I also do still have lots to upload of art I did a few months ago that is just waiting on stories, including RDR-Academy stuff and more storyline elements. Once the rush has calmed down I will hopefully tend to my storyline a little more and look to RP.
On top of all that I've got my end of year exams coming up too. The first one is 3 weeks on Wednesday I believe (which is a little scary due to the fact I only started revision, and not very much of it on Tuesday!) and the last one is on the last day of my show (29th May). After my exams I am officially free until September 14th when university starts, which is very exciting! I've got all my offers, so I just have to firm one and pick an insurance but I kinda already know what I'm going to pick, so I will hopefully be going off to study Veterinary Biosciences! I hope to be able to continue with my commissions as trade is booming at the moment, and with HARPG, but maybe more on the traditional front!
And on that note, with my new colouring pencils I do have a few pieces in the works for HARPG, so keep your eyes peeled! I can't wait until I get a lull in the commissions though as I am slowly drowning over here, quoting August completion dates, eek!
I think that's all for now! Enjoy some pictures of my art that I've been working on, along with some photographs of this year's lambs!
