And I've been steadily losing followers lol.

Man, I used to love dA. I still enjoy the site. But at this point everyone that I follow seems to also post on Twitter, IG, and Tumblr and... I'm just there more often. And that's where most of my stuff is at this point (TheRailz @ Twitter and IG and TheRailz-Art on tumblr). If you actually want to keep up with my content and not get stuff weeks to months later, I highly recommend you follow me on the aforementioned sites. I'll try my best to be more consistent here again, but dA just isn't a priority anymore. I've gained more traction on Tumblr than I ever have on here. That being said, I still appreciate the love and support from you all here.

Also if you're into comic strips, I have a webcomic-ish strip I've been doing once to twice a week over on TheRailz-Comic.tumblr.com . Check it out if you want.

Hey there, sup, long time no speak. Sorry for lack of posts, been busy and trying out some other art stuff.

If those of you remember me from years ago then you know I used to post stupid little comic strips. Well I'm doing that again for fun. If you wanna check em out be sure to follow me on Twitter! Or tumblr. But Twitter mainly!

Cool stuff. Pin-ups and other stuff will return shortly. Thanks for sticking around. Much love <3

Yo, I'm out of town, so gonna be a week until some new art, sadly. But if I get time to doodle they'll be going up on my twitter and tumblr! You can also chat and interact with me over on twitter! @ TheRailz! Cool!

Also planning on starting to stream once I'm home. I have bad focus and so art tends to take a day or two due to not working on it in one sitting. Hoping streams will help remedy that and force me to sit and work!

So if you want to go ahead and give my picarto a follow that'd be nice. Might also try out twitch later on.

Hope you guys are well!

Hey I'm CynicalJoy, or rather I was. Changed my name to match my tumblr, twitter, and website, which is TheRailz! TheRailz on here was taken by an inactive account (dA wtf won't you clear up inactive names) so TheRailz-Art it is!

Recently I've had an influx of followers, so I just wanted to say thanks for the support I've gotten over the years. I don't have many followers but the ones I have have always been great, whether it's leaving a comment or simply tossing a fave my way. I greatly appreciate it. Whether you've been with me since I was TheComicGenius or you're a brand new follower, thanks!

I have lots of things in store for you guys, and I hope I can get them somewhere soon to show everyone, from more pin-ups to webcomics to whole new art styles and things I've never attempted before. I've always felt like I've limited myself as an artist, getting stuck into a rut (with TheComicGenius it was stick figure comics, and now it's stiff pose pin-ups, lmao). So I'm really making an to expand my horizons and do all the things I've wanted to do.

Sorry for the slow flow of art, I just spent a week in NYC, I'm currently in Dallas and I'm about to get on a bus back to Austin. I'll make my best effort to pump out some stuff this week before I leave on another week long trip.

Two pics coming up are a new pin-up of Xkayis and a slime girl pin-up I've been commissioned to do, so keep an eye out for 'em!

You guys enjoying the bump of colored art in here versus just line art? Takes more time, but I think keeps things a bit more lively.

I don't use CynicalJoy anywhere anymore, mainly because the .com was taken and thus I don't want it. TAINTED. 

TheRailz is my moniker, has been for a while. TheRailz is taken by a dead account (I'm going to find whoever took it, that sick fuck) so I'll do some sort of variation probably.

Before I do, if yous gots any suggestions toss em my way

No more requests. Wasn't expecting so many people, was kinda just for my followers to request something if they wanted. 

Gonna take doodle requests of varying quality. Drop my a comment here or on my tumblr (therailz-art.tumblr.com) !!

up for anything sfw or not. If it's monster girl related or from something I like then it's a higher chance I do it or do it not sucky lol

Been really busy lately! Haven't done much art, sadly. Been working on some technical drawings I got commissioned to do which is alright I guess. I also will be leaving for Colorado in a few days and thus art may be slowed down even more, not sure yet. I'll post when I can!

Thanks for sticking with me. And yoooo thanks for all influx of views and followers lately, I greatly appreciate it!

What are you all up to? Any plans for the Holidays? :)

Thanks for following! Wonder if we can hit 100 by 2016... lol probably not.

Anything you guys are interested in seeing? Art has been off and on for me lately, but I have some monster girl pics planned and some fan art. If you want more of something or have something you'd like to see fan art of toss it my way and if I like it I'll see what I can do!

Also gonna make preparations for opening commissions for the first time, probably in December or for the New Year! :D

Sorry for being so inactive. I was really busy the last half of the summer, and this semester I'm doing a lot of self-studying along with taking an online 12 week art course to try to boost skills more (last semester I did an illustration course at my local cc). I just started learning Unity as well to help out my friend TheVertigoMaster in creating this game he and another friend have been developing. And then smaller things like trying to learn typography and very basic website building stuff.

ART STUFF -  I probably won't post most of my art studies here. I may on my tumblr (therailz-art.tumblr.com/) which is where I also will be getting in the habit of posting WIPS, as well as on my twitter (twitter.com/therailz). I'm trying to make time for doing more pics, illustrations, cartoons, pin-ups, etc. I'd like to draw more fan art actually! And of course monster girls. Can't forget them! But in an effort to get more stuff posted, I'm going to try to participate in Inktober, at least partially. I'm already a day off, but I'd like to get a few pics a week to post for it!

I've also been behind the scenes developing some personal projects and stories of varying degrees. No info on them, but I'm excited. Comics, man. Comics.

COOL THANKS, SORRY. IM REALLY SORRY. I'M ALMOST TO 80 FOLLOWERS WHICH IS AWESOME AND I APPRECIATE IT AND LOVE YOU ALL THANK YOU. HOW ARE YOU ALL DOING?

Would you guys want to see more colored works at the cost of slower output or are you all fine with the majority line art with occasional colors?

Just out of curiosity, how many of you would be interested if I opened up commissions?

Just probably starting with sketch/rough lines and eventually move to 3 levels - sketch, lineart, and simple colors. Maybe more detailed coloring too.

No idea on prices or a time frame yet, just wanted to throw it out there to see if there's even any interest. lol
