Paid: $120 USD Commission: Redesigns of my kangaroo and emu characters (Gerald Symons and Aurora Australis) Date of payment: August 26, 2020
I asked my friend Kappapeachie to design a kangaroo and emu character for me, so these new designs could replace the old ones for my webcomic The Aussie Goldmine.
Guidelines for Gerald Symons included: him holding a pickaxe, looking eccentric.
Guidelines for Aurora Aurora included: her feather colours being split down the half with a zig-zag, her having part of the green and gold geode around her neck, her being in 1930s clothing (as that’s when the Emu War was)
Paid: €155.00 EUR Commission: Single artwork featuring 30 of The-F0X’s OCs, including: Carin, Drake, Cari, Ruin, Malakai, Sketch, Skeri, Poet, Katherine, Fetch, Kiarie, Nala, Chi, Keiko, Cecilia, Harper, Heaven, Nyah, November, Rosalee, River, Soar, Chime, Lancelot, Lukah, Pandora, Sola, Tuesday, Yang, and Yin. Date of payment: June 29, 2020
I commissioned ToxicKitty, aka @potatochipo1, asking her how many of The-F0X’s OCs she’d be willing to get done before the end of August 2020. I gave her a list of 30 characters to draw, and asked if she wanted to swap any out for other characters, but she was perfectly happy to draw the initial list of 30.
The commission was completed on August 24, 2020. Here it is!
Paid: $51.18 AUD Commission: A low-poly, rigged and textured 3D model of my OC, Ink. Date of order:May 26, 2020 Date due:June 3, 2020 Date of delivery:June 1, 2020
I was looking around Fiverr for someone who could make a low-poly version of my character Ink for my video game Weathered Wasabi Warehouse. I settled on Walrusmedia after seeing other low-poly characters they made.
This is how the low-poly model turned out. They even took creative liberties to add an ice-cold light-blue tail. Very cool!
Paid: $71.26 AUD Commission: A detailed and rigged 3D model of my OC, Ink. Date of order: May 26, 2020 Date due: May 28, 2020 Date of delivery: September 3, 2020
I was looking around Fiverr for someone who could translate The-F0X’s key art of my character Ink into a 3D model. I settled on Shiftybeans after seeing their work and saw their usage/knowledge of Unreal Engine.
The following model was delivered, but due to reasons, could not be textured or rigged. Still a good job, regardless!

Heard about this Nintendo Switch sequel to the Nintendo DS/3DS series of art-making apps from scrolling through news on Google and Twitter. It also comes with a pressure-sensitive pen for the Switch’s touch screen this time around, so I figured I’d try it out.
The game was distributed digitally via Nintendo eShop code, and I received my Colors SonarPen in mid-November 2020. Here are the contents of the box containing the pen:
Pledged: HK$ 150 Rewards: Deck of clear/waterproof cards Kickstarter start date: May 8, 2020 Kickstarter funded on: June 22, 2020 Estimated delivery date: July 2020
From scrolling through Kickstarter, I saw that MPC (a company that I’ll later ask to produce the cards for my own upcoming card games such as F0X Trumps and Studio RGB-Newt’s Shipment) had a campaign for a see-through set of waterproof playing cards, and I figured I could grab a deck.
The cards arrived in the latter half of 2020, and they look like this!
