Just a patron art that I did not long ago. Abram and welding.... who'd of thought? That's right... no one. That's why his whiskers are on fire. XD
We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!
Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.
So far, approximately $111.38 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 45% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!
yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 May!
At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.
Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.
There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

For someone that draws anthro characters on a daily basis and even being a fan of the Sonic games, I've never actually drawn any characters in my life! (surprising I know). Anyway, here's a couple random ones from the last few nights in a couple styles. The Rick and Morty style came to me after brain farting for awhile hehe.
As a long time fan of Final Fantasy 7, I finished the remake and got inspired to make some fan art. I think the roles are fitting no? XD
Since doing the original picture 5 years ago (wow has it been that long?), I redid the piece with a new flare and angle. What you are seeing is roughly done, but I may make some tweaks over the next day or two for the website. I think I'll eventually make a "living image" video version of it as well, just like the last one, but that will come a bit later.
This is the version without the logo.
P.S. Stay clean, wash your hands often, keep social distancing, and avoid large crowds!
If you haven't looked at the website recently, I've updated a ton of art, completely redoing the character section. I have a bit more to do, but am now redoing the front page of the website itself.
I did some thumbnails of what I'm deciding on for the main composition shot. I'm personally leaning on #4 based on placement and balance of everything, perhaps 5 as well. Patreons are more than welcome to voice their opinions as I'll certainly take it into consideration!
As you can see, the family has been redrawn. It's a stark contrast from the one currently on the website from 5 years ago!
P.S. Example 6 is obviously the winner, but I want to choose something else if we can lol.
I wanted to share the new designs I've been working on not just for Volume 2, but for the website as well. I'm wanting to use stronger themes and fashion cues to get a stronger vibe of Ion Valley culture, also taking some inspirations with the 1960's. The characters that got the biggest makeover are obviously the youngest ones since time has passed: Arlo, Enzo, and Lily.
I also changed some color profiles for some characters since I wasn't as happy with some of my past choices in Volume 1. I'm also trying to add a bit more detail to the clothing whether it's stripes, two-tones, patterns, etc.
Anyway, here's the first batch! I still have many to go!
Oh, and the character on the left... that's Joyce haha. (very minor character)
Welp, after scrutinizing and going through multiple revisions on what my banner would be, I finally landed on it, took a deep breath, ordered the thing, and hoped to hell it wouldn't turn out like crap. You never know when ordering through online systems!
I'm pleased to say that I'm happy how it turned out. I'll be using this for cons in the future. If you attend the ones I'm at, this will be what you look for! :D
As the thought process behind it, I knew I needed the main protagonists Arlo and Enzo, but needed airships and a shot of Ion Valley. I wanted to somehow encompass everything that explained the world I'm creating without some type of dishonest bait and switch.
Cartoon cats, airships, a crazy fantasy land... hopefully I got close! XD
P.S. This made my computer cry. 23000 x 9000 -ish at 300 dpi with multiple layers... nope lol.
In 2016 at Indiana Comic Con, I met a man that specialized in metalwork and steampunk creations. Some of his creations were clocks, in which I about lost my mind when seeing them in person. I KNEW I had to have one someday!
I then visited Anthrocon for the first time in 2017 and he was there again! We discussed a lot as I looked at more of his clocks. Same thing happened in 2018. However, last year at Anthrocon 2019, I finally took the plunge to commission him for a custom clock!
I filled out all my preferences, we agreed on a price point, and he'd have it for me in a few months. Well, it took a bit longer, but this month, I drove out of state to Michigan to pick it up personally! Yes.... I AM STOKED. I always wanted some type of meta creation that connects to the world I'm trying to create, like an old history piece.
To really understand what this clock does, check out the short video I made here!
I plan to have this at my booth at Anthrocon 2020. If you're attending, then you can see it in person, and possibly meet the man that made it! Anyway, just thought I'd share this!
His contact information is here, though his site will need a redesign (I'm working that out with him at the moment haha)
Just a few of many things arriving for con prep in the summer! I got some biz cards, bookmarks, and my table runner for starters. They turned out great! I have lots of other boring materials I've purchased like table cloths, canvas and book easels, biz card holders, etc... but these are the more exciting things.
Next up... my giant vertical banner, art prints, stickers, and ultimately... BOOKS!
I'm working with a printing service on making stickers! This is just one thing of many that I plan to sell beyond books. The initial prototype is in the photo above, and should be very close in the final. Sorry for the washed out looking colors in the pic. (I didn't take it either)
Just wanted to share so far. These will be on sale at Anthrocon 2020 this summer. :D
While I certainly plan to do my own personal print run of the comic, I applied to my first publisher today! Big thanks to the Fedex Office guy behind the desk. I wanted to do physical submissions if allowed by the publisher, because I believe there's something special about tangible viewing of a printed work rather than a digital email in someone's inbox. Plus I think it shows the extra initiative, hopefully giving a bit more consideration.
Welp, this is the phase of the game where a lot of "no's" and disappointment could be on the horizon. Here's to crossing my fingers! Thanks for the support! I'll keep you all updated of any developments of course!
First off, I want to give a HUGE thanks to all my Patreons that have supported me these past couple years. It means a lot and helps with the motivation to keep going. As stated in the title, I have completed my first graphic novel Cashmere Sky: Volume 1! It clocks in at just over 150 pages. However, this isn't the end, but only the beginning!
Obviously the pages are going to keep getting posted online every week until the book is finished. In the meantime I have mountains of work ahead of me with book planning, logistics, even shopping for publishers (we'll see about that huh). I plan to do some small print runs initially which leads me to my next point.
I've recently learned that I've been accepted into the Anthrocon Dealer's Room for July 2020 in Pittsburgh next year, which means I will have a booth with actual... TANGIBLE stuff to buy... INCLUDING THE PRINTED BOOK! (first print con special) Plus if you attend, I can finally meet some of you! It's also my first con ever so I'm crash coursing as hard as I can to do this as best as possible. It's exciting as much as it is nerve racking.
I also want to mention that I will absolutely still be hitting art just as hard in the coming months, and may actually end up posting more than usual since it won't be specifically comic work. I have tons of things I want to accomplish, from getting Volume 2's script written, working on art fundamentals and exercises, plus experimenting with new designs and styles for the next book. The well isn't drying up, it'll be overflowing. I try not to think about it too much as I get overwhelmed.
I have more things in store in the near future and will be posting some updates over the coming weeks / months. I have a lot to organize and want to make sure I know the shot before I announce anything. Anyway, love you all! Thanks again! <3
Poor kids. ;_;
Hardest thing he's ever had to do... :(
... deep breath.
Not the phone call he was expecting.
Damnit! That was a dirty trick. >:(
Abram's got the upper hand! Wait...what?
This guy is one tough fighter. >:|
Abram better remember his training. Think fast!
Time for a distraction.
... uh oh.
It seems Abram's dedication to secrecy saved lives.
This guy likes to hear himself talk doesn't he?
The patronizing is getting a bit annoying hmm?
The options just keep running out. :\
Ugh... this isn't going well.
... get there first!
!..... stay calm.
Welp... here we go.
I had this idea in my head for a long time, but never got around to it. Eventually, I needed something like this for the comic, so what better time than to do it now. I wanted to keep it simple, warm, and show one of their better moments. Arlo just can't help himself and keeps being a goofball, something I did at his age as well... admittedly more often than not. I'm a weirdo. XD
Stay calm... everything is going to be fine.
None of this feels right.....
This conversation got a bit... ominous.
Something isn't adding up with Winston's..."vision"
An unexpected (even unwelcome) surprise visit. >:\
Looks like Abram stuck to his word. ;)
Time passes as research begins.
This was a small tribute piece I did for someone that tragically lost their kitten (Piper the tuxedo) to a terrible incident earlier this year. Her brother Buster looked over her. Losing a pet is dreadful as I've experienced it multiple times. This was a small token of sympathy I could give. :3
The questions keep piling up. Time to do some crunch work.
