Interests
Hello again everyone, time for some news stuff. I hope you've all had an enjoyable Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.

I recently posted a deviation to announce it, but here I am again to pimp out my Patreon page: www.patreon.com/ShimmeringSwor…
I'm spending a lot of time working on commissions these days to pay the bills, much more than I needed to before. I'd like to get back to doing more personal work, and Patreon is a great way to do that. If you have a few dollars to spare each month and want to support me, I'd greatly appreciate anyone that can become a patron. If this ever grows large enough I may even be able to stop freelancing all together and work full time on my own projects. Patrons can already find a collection of art from my book that only book backers have seen at this point, and I've started posting fresh content.
To those who can't join, don't worry, most of what I post there will eventually get posted on DA too, just not right away.

Mentoring is a minor note, but on my Patreon there is a pledge option to secure one on one talk time with me. Currently that's only a single one hour session each month, and can be utilized however you want (you could even have me sketch you something in that time). In the off chance that anyone wants to pick my brain or get focused feedback/help on their work for more time than that, just let me know and we can work something out.

Sketch Commissions
Lately I've been doing quite a few large painting commissions, not so many small projects. To help me fill in space between the big stuff, I'd like to offer a bit of a discount on quick sketches, this comes with a few conditions though:
I'll offer these sketch commissions for $25 (instead of $35), but I will be completing them in one shot, this means no revision time or checking of early progress. The only way you'll be able to provide feedback is to watch it happen live on my stream. You will be able to provide as much description and reference ahead of time as you want though.
Basically, if you'd like a quick loose sketch from me and aren't too concerned about exacting results, these come at a great discount. They will also jump through my commission queue at my discretion, you'll just need to pay the $25 once the description is agreed on. (unfortunately I don't have any recent examples of quick sketches, though there are some several years old in my gallery)
If you're interested in these, just send me a note.

Totally get now why you like IS mechs over Clan, just saw your tag in MWO, but please, dear Sword, Tell me you are not like those NKVA that invest the forums and stain the Kurita name.

Haha, were you an opponent during that last match on the new map tonight?
Not at all like most of the Kurita trolls, in fact if it was that game you saw me in, you might have noticed an ARKB player teamkill me. ACES keeps player interaction professional, so the trolls don't like us very much.

Nah, I was at work, so i was cruising the Forums (in between patrols mind you) and saw your Star League meeting post.

I mean I figured you where a Fan and all I just didn't know what side you stood on.  My names Seph MacLeod if you ever see me, I'll most likely be using a Mad Dog or a Nova. And I'll definitely say hi to you if I  see you.

Ah. Yeah I don't post on the forums a whole lot, because we've all seen the immense amounts of trolling that goes on in all CW threads. I post what people need to know, then I get out :D
As a unit leader for a merc unit and the merc representative in the SL I move between factions a lot, though lately that's usually on the clan border to help push them back.
