A thing I like to do is create an array of silhouettes and cross them with a "species". The first drawing was on the top right which provided the basis for the "skin".
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 $400.00 has been raised out of our target of $400.00. We're about 100% 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 October!
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.

I'm going to try to get this inked tonight.
Loreli, please don't poke the gargoyle.
I've been trying to get into the habit of preparing my assets before I begin a new scene. It allows me to streamline what I'm doing and draw out the pencils more comprehensively.
The critter isn't part of it, just an idea I had. The next pages will be inside of the circus tent.
I'll be posting my assets and prop studies in here for my 5 dollar tiers and up before each scene change.
Gwen honey, please.
Thanks for being so patient with me while my computer was out of commission! I'm trying to build a buffer and one of these weeks post a double update!
Ben had asked for adult versions of Nolan and Gwen. To tell you the truth I've only ever considered them up until their teens. Nolan doesn't change much, let's be honest. He still wants to play adventure hero well into his 20's and then some. Gwen takes to different phases in fashion, as well as different identities as many teens do. I'll get the next batch up soon, if you haven't requested one yet, please do! They're free to all patrons right now! Check my previous posts for details.
I.V.C. asked for me to switch out Rosco for hand turkey. Which of course results in crying children.
About two weeks ago my computer was giving me trouble with crashes in greater frequency. So much that I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to work without the constant risk of losing progress. I was hoping my computer would be fixed in time to make a two page update but it took my brother and I a while to figure out it was the motherboard (I mean, that's gotta be it by now) SO! I'm offering free sketch requests of parisa characters to all my patrons. Comment with what you'd like to see and I'll make a traditional drawing of it and post them on Wednesday.
I like to keep a set of characters on hand for background stock, as well as character design practice with regards to silhouettes. I find silhouettes to be one of the things I find most attractive in a character design.
Leleif, come on. That's rude.
Sorry, it's a little late! Thanks for your patience
I plan to make a detailed header illustration for the main cast, and cute animated sprites below where all their info is. What kind of things would you guys like to know about the crew? To be shown on the cast page, that is.
Introducing, Rosco! This page should be quicker to render!
Meet Rosco, he's a big attraction at the carnival. The dude can do anything and he works for smiles! What's his deal? Never met anyone who loved his job THIS much!
I've been feeling down all day so I decided to stop trying to force myself to make structured work for now. Drawing these has reminded me that I need to mindlessly draw characters more often. It helps with keeping them consistent and it's good draftsmanship practice for them.
(updated with drawings that are easier to see)
There won't be an april fools page this year, sorry. I couldn't find the time to come up with anything decent. Next year, though... I got something fun planned.
Introducing Big Jeffery! He's a weird dude who's crazy about coasters.
Hello Patrons! Here's my first high res update! I want to provide updates a day or two before I make them public as a thanks to you folks!
What's her problem, jeez...
I wanna take this time to personally thank everyone who's pledged. I also wanna mention that the next few pages may look a bit different. I had a sort of ah-ha moment a few days ago about how I pencil my characters. With the practice I've been getting with some comic commissions, I've felt more versatile in my comics.
Throughout development, characters proportions will change. It's fairly minute but over time there's a difference. Especially to me.
In the last page, the new character, Lorelei, appears rather tall. Taller than I had originally intended for her. It's such a simple thing but I had realized that they sorta had a proportion or feature creep, where things just look odd over multiple drawings. It was because of my process where I'd focus too much on the expression before the pose. A rookie mistake but it was a thing that was a habit for me.
The feel much more articulated and consistent now, it's like night and day. So the next page, Lorelei will appear shorter. I've told myself to not look back when making pages. I only replace pages when its absolutely necessary for clarity or some such stuff.
Feel free to chime in on anything you'd like to see!
