Update & News

Thu Jul 28, 2011, 10:39 AM

Hey guys,

    The surgery went well!  Things are a little tentative due to the extent of the damage (thought I had a labrum tear, turns out I have pretty much no labrum because it was shredded and all the ligaments across the front of the shoulder were torn off the bone) and because this is round two for surgery on that shoulder, but so far, so good!  Recovery is going well.  It will be 6-12 months until the arm is 100% again and I'll have some limited mobility.  In the meantime, this week I was able to get back to my work station and have been slowly getting back to arting.  It is great!

Neat news - before the arm/surgery business I was contacted for some contract work out of Vigil Games.  I am pleased to say I will be joining the team to work on the studio's upcoming MMO (special thanks to :iconchainsawdroid:!).  I will still be doing Extra Credits, don't fret!  I will be settled into the new schedule in about a month and a half.  Until then, enjoy the guest artists we have lined up for you, they are some pretty awesome people for volunteering.  Thank you guys!  I really appreciate the recoup time.  

Messages - I am buried!  I now have 67 unread notes and endless comments to reply to.  I can't promise I can get back to everyone but I will certainly try.  

Thank you again!

My little sis :icondarknature5000: is open for commissions again.  If you like wolfy things, monsters, or awesome chars be they anime or OC, go check her out, she's got way reasonable prices and her work is awesome.

Wow, I'm really glad to hear that everything is going well for you now C: I can't even imagine how bad of shape your shoulders are in, I've never heard of anyone whose limbs just fall out like that o___o
I hope you continue with a good recovery though n__n Is there a chance of the problem being fixed forever with this surgery, or is it a problem that will require maintenance for the rest of your life?
Also yay for new work! I'm sure it's tons of fun doing work for game companies, lots of creativity involved C:

Congratulations and all the best healing vibes for a speedy recovery! I'm amazed at how you've been able maintain a positive attitude throughout this whole thing...The psychological side of it is so important for a healthy recovery, and I really admire your ability to keep your morale up and stay in good spirits. Hopefully the support you are getting here (and presumably "offline" as well) is helping with that...Blow their minds--reach a full recovery sooner than expected! :)
