TUI Q and A NEW INFO!!!there was a q & a with tui and mike holmes on the forums today!! ALL ANSWERS ARE EXACT QUOTES FROM MIKE AND TUI, AND NOT ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS WERE ASKED BY ME. here's the best of the info i got:
QUESTIONS FOR TUI
Who were you most excited to see illustrated in the graphic novel?
I was really excited to see Peril, who is such a big personality, and of course Clay, who is the heart of the book – so he has to be brave and befuddled and sweet and nervous and heartbroken and I wasn’t sure how it would be possible to convey all those things in one dragon face. But Mike did it amazingly – I think especially when you consider that the novel has so much internal monologue and emotional stuff that Clay is going through in his head. The fact that Mike was able to convey all of that in the art is incredible.
I was also very excited to see the settings, especially Queen Scarlet’s palace and arena. I am actually not a
TRIBES OF PANTALA (new group!)hi all!! with the reveal of The Lost Continent's cover and the discovery of a new tribe, I was thinking it could be fun to make a new group featuring art of only Pantalan dragons! So I've made a group ~ Tribes-of-Pantala ~ which is free to join!! feel free to submit any new art of the tribe seen on the cover to the "Bug"Wings category, which will be updated when Tui gives us the name of the tribe.

TUI BOOK SIGNING (NEW NEWS ABOUT BOOKS TO COME!!)EEEEE so i saw tui again today!! and she gave us LOTS of super-cool, exclusive information!! i couldn't wait to share it with you guys and i just finished writing out all her answers. unfortunately, i didn't get to ask half the questions i wanted to ask (i was only able to ask three or four) and so most of this information consists of the notes i took during the event. i made it into a q&a format so it was easier to read- anything in italics are my personal theories, to be taken with a grain of salt!! here we go !!!
THE LOST CONTINENT/BOOKS AND EVENTS TO COME
When will Book 11 be released?
Hopefully summer 2018!
Do you plan on bringing back the GrassWings?
Her exact words: “Well, not really,” [a pause] “No. No.”
My conclusions: There was a considerable pause between the ‘not really’ and the ‘no’s. I theorize that she has used some part of the GrassWings in a new tribe, but that the GrassWings themselves will n
8/19/17 updates (tui info- please read!)hey there guys!! i got home from camp about a week ago and since then i have been working very hard on the work i owe!! i am very close to finishing the first one (yay!!!) which is also the hardest, so i'll be glad to be done with that after that, i won't have comms open for a while, i think, though i might make some adopts, idk.
today i am going to see tui!!! woot woot! she's in a bookstore in nyc at 1 today with a few other authors so i'll be going over there to get my books signed and ask some questions. if you guys have any questions you want to ask tui, post them on this journal and i'll add them to my list!! here's the info: http://tuibooks.com/wordpress/darkness-of-dragons-is-here/
also, please tell me if you plan on going as well!! i'd love to meet more of you guys <3 <3
UPDATES + IMPORTANT NOTICEhey guys!! today i am leaving for a two-week session of electronics-and-computer-free sleepaway camp. i absolutely love it there, but unfortunately we are not allowed access to any computers, which means i will not be able to work on owed stuff for another two weeks. It sucks, i know. but after this i have no more big events and i will be able to finish comms and such with access to photoshop and my files. i must yet again apologize for this inconvenience, but there is no way i can change the situation. i got some good work done on the owed work this past week (though i had a friend over the whole time and i didn't get much time) but when camp is over, you will all get what you deserve <3 so sorry for this, again. see you soon!!!

I'M BACK + UPDATES (PLEASE READ)alrighty folks so as you may have noticed, i've been ridiculously inactive for a ridiculously long period of time. we had awful final exams that i spent every minute studying for and a huge load of other end-of-year responsibilities. this does not change the fact that i have a BIG load of owed art to catch up on, and i should have been trying to get it done loooong before now. i intended to get a lot done on my family's three-week vacation trip, but then my father forgot the computer that i do all my work on. this means that i have not been able to work on my digital owed art for three weeks, which really sucks.
i am BACK!!! from that trip!! which means that now that i am home i will do anything i can to catch up on owed work. hopefully i will be able o get that finished soon!! commissioners, i am so thankful for your truly astounding patience and cooperation with me and i will get you what you owe ASAP.
my birthday was July 1st and i had a wonder

Collective Feature #20Updates:
Firstly, I want to thank the anonymous user who gave me a 3-month Premium Membership. I don't use the features much, but I like the journal themes, so thank you!
Secondly, I wanted to thank everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday! Being at college, nothing excited happened except classes and work, but I did get to help out at a dodgeball tournament our club hosted, so that was kinda fun.
Thirdly, who else enjoyed the 70=80 degree temperatures and gorgeous weather on Friday + Saturday? Cause I know I did! It was short lived (back to rainy, windy, and cool) but I hope you all made the most of it! I drove up to Teatown Reservation to see if there was any growth, but there was very few. They opened up their "Wildflower Island" to the public and I hope to go back in a couple of weeks when things begin to grow more.
I already know it's going to be one of those weeks because this morning I burnt a finger on the

Comissions: Opened o.o!HELLO THERE
YES! I'M MAKING COMMISSIONS. BILLS TO PAY, NEED TO SURVIVE LOL
In all seriousness, I wanna start to make commissions. After talking to Alyssa (walkingmelons on youtube) about prices, I'm leaning towards following her policy. So if you want to commission me here are some details:
A fully colored digital drawing (like this one): $40 (may charge extra if there are more than 2 characters)
A fully colored digital drawing only focusing on the upper body part: $30
Since I'm just starting with the commission thing I wanna take it slowly and patiently, maybe in a future I'll be able to draw only sketched or simple colored drawings which will be cheaper, but for now I'll focus on what I know I can do better. If you are interested, send me a note named "Commission" and then add what you want. I'm thinking I can only take maybe 2 commissions per week to get started, when I get the hang of it I'll probably be able to take more in.
As for the time, it depends. If I'm inspired I might jus
