So this has been on my mind for quite a while now and just havent been sure on how to go about doing this or saying this so ill just get out and say it as best i can. Ive been wanting to get back to livestreaming for a while now as you know it had been hard to do a live stream on a consistant basis so with that it always kind of stressed me out. 

While I do want to get back to live streaming i dont want to end back up where i was before. This includes both gaming live streams and art live streams. Im thinking on specific tues i should do one or the other, swapping it out each time. I do plan to at least try to have 2 game streams a month since at the time of this typing, this is slightly more important. And also due to the fact that at this time i can mostly only color and not full fledged draw yet. At this time im thinking about doing a game stream tomorrow time is yet to be determined, and for a art stream perhaps next tuesday. Im not quite sure yet on if these will be final but ill try to do one of them. I know alot of you have been wanting me to get back into this for some time but until recently i havent quite had the energy to do so. So if things go well then hey great, id love to get back to doing this. 

Would you guys like to see that again if it interests you? Who knows maybe if things go well i can get back to color commissions till i can get to drawing. Let me know id like to hear.
So I know its been quite a long time since ive posted anything here, even a journal or pic or anything. Im sure some of you had been quite worried, some of you wondering where your coloring requests have gone, (dont worry i still have them saved, just alot has happened in the past well year and a half. I guess the best way is to start from the beggining

Back in may 2015 as you guys know I announced that I would be out of it for a few weeks/months from vocal surgery that i have to get ever couple of years. its a mix of multiple surgeries combined that i have to have due to constant muscle growths and its to help me breath and talk and not choke on blood when my cords tear.

As you all know i was out for a while and while it was fine for a while, complications did arise and i had to go back for follow up surgery. Twice. Its been a few months and so far no complications again. Which is great since alot of other things have happened since then.

I had lost my job at hostgator as well as my website i had hosting with them, so for now the site is kinda on hiaatus till i get it back up, money issues have araised with my limited funding from work, I have also moved out of my current living quarters and am finally on my own with no roomates, no guests living with me, finally on my own. With that in mind comes all the stress happening in my life.

If anyone has worked in customer service, they can relate, it is one of the most stressful jobs you can ever have. It is more stressful when you are in a call center environment as customers can get away with more than they can in person. There are also set expectations that are very hard to meet or even exceed at when in this environment. To put this in a perspective for those not aware, Imagine having to take a test on another subject that is something youve not studied for, in another language, and you have to make 100.

That is the closest perspective for how it is at this type of job. Now because of all of this, and with having to mvoe on my own to a part of town that is not well, not the safest place but not the worst, and up three fights of steps, as well as worrying about Bills for rent, power, water car insurance ect ect, this stress gets to you quite quickly.  I probably could have typed this better but i do not have a way of typing it. needless to say, With the past few weeks, I have had to go to the emergancy room multiple times for chest pains, anxiety attacks passouts, among other things.

So Now im on multiple medications at this time for different things, mostly physical, as well as depression and anxiety. This has severly limited what I can do between the little time I have after work, to the point that Im not able to do much even move. While I do have some energy for things, Alot of things I used to be able to do, recording games, chatting with friends, drawing and coloring, im now very very limited as not only does the medication mess with my ability for this, it also reduces my energy as well as the therapy i have to go through daily between my off work hours.

There is some good news in this however, while I am limited on what I can do, I can do 1 or 2 things a day that Hopefully will be making things better. Once im finally off my medication or to a point it is reduced, I can go back full schedule for the things I want to do, however even then I have to severly reduce what I was doing before.

Before I was trying to learn to draw, record games, do video reviews, lets plays, color, go to college and more all at the same time, ussually multiple things at a time a day. Because of my current condition and from now on, I will have to as the dr puts it *mellow out* and reduce what I can do. I will still be trying to draw so i can get to doing my own things, and hey maybe ill enjoy it with commissions and perks. I will still be trying to record games and such for my youtube, (which to those that follow me thank you again for keeping up and with all the wishes.) however I will be limited to preety much these 2 things. I cant keep up this life style of doing multiple things as before as stress and planning for the future will continue to be on my plate, and until i am able to get to a less stressful job one that I enjoy these kinds of issues will continue to come up

I do appologize if this all seems a bit kind of a rant but It is something i needed to get out of the way to let everyone know. So again everyone, thank you for all your continued love and support, I truly can not tell you how much I appreciate this and how it helps me get by each and every day. There will be alot of changes you will all be seeing, some good, some not as good, but its all for a better future and to help me out. And thank you for taking the time to read this, if you made it this far, thank you, you should get a cookie.

Expect more journals in the future, this is more of a generalized one of what will happen, plans like my livestreams and commissions and such will come later.

As a last note, I am going to try to improve my art a little at a time, if anyone has great *schematics* on drawing things like hair hands anatomy they used to help them, please let me know, im going to take things one at a time focus on hands then hair then feet ect ect till i can bring it all together. it may be the best way to learn, any help will help me out.
Anyone wanna see me do some gaming tonight on prisoner architech? Fun addictive game and i feel the need to stream. 
hope you all in the us are having a good turkey day, just a bit of an update

I am still open for color commissions from people so please feel free to send me a note and a request, i wont ask for payment till I start.
I do take live commission requests during my streams so if im not already working on a commission I will start yours during the stream. 
I have a new twitter account for just my art that i am hoping to try and use more twitter.com/leakymilky
Im hoping to get a tumblr going for art as well www.tumblr.com/blog/leakymilky i do repost alot of stuff i see so keep that in mind
I have left facebook for personal reasons so those that did follow me there i am sorry but i will not ever be going back there. 
I am planning to do weekly streams on tuesdays and the streams will start at about 8pm central time. So I hope to see you all then every tuesday
As of dec 3 i will be on a new schedule so you should all see me alot more than normal, though if things work out i will be back at doing graveyard shifts.
Things have gotten better after my surgery, I still need to go back after earning some more money and as promised i do have games for sell below if you want to purchase or donate you can do so at my paypal. Once fully recovered i will be making a drawing of showing my recovery and to help also better explain the situation. 

Once again, I can never say this enough, Thank you all for your love and support, It really does mean more than just mere words that i say. If i could give everyone free gifts every day for all the love that you have given me i would. Your love helps me go on each day and helps bypass all the pain and hardships i have suffered these last 2 years. Thank you all so so much, I do love you all and I will be here for a long time.

    Games for sell!Hey everyone! I got some good news, i got alot of extra steam games i have for sale and It would be very appreciative if you guys can help out. Im looking to raise money to help me get a special commission for down the road and I thought it would be best if i sold some games i have extras of for cheap. All keys are for steam and are brand new (a few are on origin which will be noted) And Im selling them unless marked otherwise for $10 each. All of these are just cluttering up my pages for where i purchased the keys and i need to get rid of them. All of them are from humble bundle and indie gala and indie royal so they are new. 
If you are interested in any game, please send me a note stating the game you want or you can send the money to me directly at paypal at milkykou@paypal.com with the name of the game you want.
This list will be updated as games are sold so please bear in mind if its up here its still for sale.
Thank you all very much, hopefully you will all see what i mean
So this has been on my mind for quite a while now and just havent been sure on how to go about doing this or saying this so ill just get out and say it as best i can.

Hey everyone, thank you so much for the emergency commissions. It was very helpful though i may not have gotten all the money i needed, it helped me out tremendously. So for that, for a while at least a month or 2, im going to be keeping the prices. This list will be updated when i feel it needs to but for now please enjoy these prices~


Color your pic

Prices includes colors and shadows

$2 for a 1 character pic
$5 for a 2 character pic
Background coloring depending on complexity will range from 0-$5

Line art your sketch
For $2 i will line art your sketch with nice clean lines reguardless how many characters are in the pic
Backgrounds lines will depend on complexity ranging again from 0-$3


Currently at this time i am open to coloring anything including stuff that i will not draw normally. So feel free to take advantage of this while you can. Cause once these prices change, I will go back to my no list of colors and draws.
