Extra Life NEWS!

I've participated in the Extra Life gaming charity for the last 4 years.  Sadly, due to other obligations (I'll be moving; a small move less than 5 minutes from where I am now, but a move none the less) I will not be able to participate directly in this year's charity.

HOWEVER!  I would like to do what I can to help encourage and cheer on those folks who ARE participating.  I can't do much, but what I can do is this:

First, if you're participating in the 24 hour gaming marathon and have a donation page, let me know! Just post a link in the comments.  If you'll be streaming, I will share that too, and - if the stars align and I'm lucky enough to have internet hooked up at the new place early - I'd love to jump in as a guest if you think it'll help bring in eyeballs. :) Plus I love gaming!

Second, to encourage you guys to really raise the money, if you follow me on Twitter and raise more money by the end of the event than any of my other followers, I will do a 100% free digital commission for you.  I don't have specific limitations for said commission, but I'll be happy to work it out with whomever wins it. :)

Hopefully I'll be able to toss my hat into the charity ring next year.  But for now, I'll just have to sit on the sidelines and cheer on everyone that IS participating.  You guys are awesome!  ^_^

League of... Furries?

I draw furries.  I also play video games.  I am what some may call a "nerd", and I happily celebrate the term.  Yay nerds!

I recently got the urge to draw my mascot character, Lizardbeth, as Jinx "The Loose Canon" from Riot Game's League of Legends.  I thought it an appropriate fit, given Liz's hyperactivity and colorful nature.  Plus, Jinx is just one of my favorite heroes in LoL, both in terms of design and gameplay.  What's not to love about a rocket launcher shaped like a shark? I mean come ON. 

Of course, having doing that, I got the itch to do a few more. I told my followers on FurAffinity "hey, if any of you want me to draw your character as a League of Legends champion, I'll totally do it."  I opened two slots initially, with the intent that if I got enough demand I'd open up a couple more spots later.

Well wouldn't you know it? There's a lot of furry LOL nerds. out there. :)

I'll likely continue to do these until interest dries up (whether it's mine, or potential buyers).  But I'm certainly enjoying them for now.

One last note: during the month of December, I'll be doing a Patreon Advent Calender for all of my $2+ patron subscribers.  There will be one exclusive post per day from the 1st to the 25th, including anything from digital icons and backgrounds, secret doodles, printable greeting cards for friends and family, and more. And it won't be only Christmas-centric; there will be some Hanukah, Yule, as well as lots of general winter fun. As long as you set you're Patreon subscription to at least $2, you'll be able to see everything that gets posted all month.  

If you're not a Patreon subscriber yet, please head on over to my Patreon Page and show your support.

"Hello Keeper" creature set - Part 1

Inspired by my recent obsession with the old Dungeon Keeper series, I've had the urge to draw cute versions of all of the creatures from DK2.  There's 16 of them total in the game, and here's the first 3.  

For those who aren't familiar with the games, these are (from left to right) the Bile Demon, the Black Knight, and the Dark Angel.

More will come tomorrow!  I'm especially excited to draw the Imp & the Horned Reaper. ^_^

Liz Sucks at Games episode 1 (+ more CaD catch-up)

I'm confident enough in myself and my self-worth that I'm willing to admit that I'm terrible at videogames.  I enjoy them in spite of my terribleness, but let's just say I don't plan on entering any gaming tournaments any time soon.  However, if watching me suck at said games brings other people amusement, even at my expense, then by golly I'll share my game sessions with the internet!  

So here's me playing a new game I discovered thanks to Simon & Lewis of the Yogscast, called "Surgeon Simulator".  It's basically QWOP plus Operation, and... well.... let's just say it's a good thing I never became a doctor.

I also think I'm renaming Critter-A-Day to Creature-A-Day.  Critter just sounds too cutesy. So on that note, here's 3 more Creature-A-Day catch-up drawings!
