Hey guys:

GDAD here. How are you all, especially those who suffered from Hurricane Irma and my peeps from Puerto Rico from Maria? Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm alive. My family and myself are fine and we only suffered minor damages around the house. We managed to get power back four days after the hurricane hit so since then things are slowly getting back normal in my area. However, I did suffered one huge loss. My brand new 2017 Toyota Rav4 XLE which my brother and I bough on April 28, 2017 has suffered major water damage on the inside. It drives fine but all upholstery from the seats to the floors were soaked. After reporting my claim to my car insurance company, they picked up my vehicle and check the damages, the result: total loss. Vehicle is undrivable due to the possibility of building up mold, mildew, spores, and such due to the moisture gained from the water damages in which its completely unhealthy for anyone. I have fallen in love with this amazing vehicle and I can't believe I have to lose it by an unpredicted disaster in just a few months after buying it. This is the first time I am experiencing this kind of loss and I am overwhelmed.

At this time, I am currently driving a car rental from Enterprise, a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Its funny how I actually end up driving the vehicle I always wanted after I loss. My car insurance company is doing its best to take care of the loss. They have given me a settlement for the loss which will take care almost the entire payoff for the financing that I owe. Luckily, I have Gap insurance to cover for the remainder. But alas, it still be a loss even if I pay off what I owe on the Rav4 as long I don't get a remainder that I can use to buy another vehicle. There might be a possibility of gaining a remainder but that involves talking with the bank that is my lender. For now, its a standstill until the bank responds from the guarantee after re-evaluating my vehicle for the new settlement and that I need to finish filling the documents for my Gap Insurance. But once they respond, I would want a conference call with them and my insurance company and discuss of having a remainder for me to have after the entire ordeal. But if it fails, then I'm done for and will have to start from scratch. Seriosuly, when I bought the vehicle I had to loan about $3K from my 401K to help me kickstart on my vehicle and insurance payments but it will be all for naught if I don't get anything out of this.

For now, I am considering of doing a GoFundMe to help me gain funds to purposely help me gain the neccesary funds to begin in buying a brand new vechile. I would like to hear everyone's opinions regarding the matter, especially if a GoFundMe is the right thing to do or suggest any other way to gain funds. Anyway, I appreciate everyone for taking the time in reading this. I definitely need a good pick-me-up so new art of my OCs and human ponies would be nice. Even after everything, I'm still a survivor and I won't give up that easily as I will continue to live one for myself and for my family. Thank you for your time and cooperation.
Want to announce that the Pinkie Pie X AD image set by :iconshonuff44: is done. Check out the last pic at my FurAffinity page. Remember, I go by the same username there.
Its been my mind for quite some time ever since my brother :iconthunderfoxjt: opened his own Patreon artist group page so this is a question to all of my friends and followers:

Should I make a Patreon page and if so will you be able to support it?

My brother have been doing well managing his own artist group through Patreon but still has a long way to go in earning more funds. For now, he is already managing a ghost artist he is close to in working on commissions. I had thoughts in running my own Patreon artist group to see how it works but need more planning for now. But I got artist/animator I know who is in need of a manager for his Patreon so I think its a first step.

But the one thing that revolves around the question is getting a Patreon page to help earn funds to pay commission work. I'm not getting any younger and one of these days I will have to cut down on commission work to get around in life. If I want to continue getting commissions even if the amount of works and content are limited, I would mind having a Patreon for it as long as I have people who like to see me continue posting them. Here are a list of things to point out if I were to make a Patreon solely to cover commission work.

- I won't be asking much on the amount of pledges since I would be happy if I could earn even about up to $100 a month. So I am thinking about making pledges of $1, $2 $5, $10, $20, and $50. Asking anything over $50 would be too much to ask since I only need a certain amount to get by. But if you think I need to make pledges higher than that as long that you are able pledge said amount, then I will do so.

- One of the reasons people will pledge would be rewards and perks. This will take a considerate amount to plan since it should benefit myself and the pledgers but I have a couple of things in mind.
  1. Early Access to commission work days before I will post them on DA and FA.
  2. Access to private works as long I think they are doable to show such as works I kept to myself or have planned to post but unable to do so.
  3. Suggest and vote for ideas that I will possibly use for future commissions or patreon-related polls.
  4. Collaborate in commissions that the pledger and myself would agree upon. (Note: Might be Exclusive for High Tier Pledgers)
  5. Take part in a Patreon-only Discord Server
That's pretty much I planned for the reqards/perks but need more planning for this.

- Depending on the amount earned, I can commission more frequently or even plan for much bigger projects such as comics or animation work.

- I want to hear more from people who like my characters and human ponies, especially if they have a certain character they would like to see me use more.

- Pledgers are welcome to suggest artists/animators I haven't commissioned before. I enjoy working with new artists I haven't met and build new relationships between client and artist.

Well, those are the things I list out for the Patreon. Anyway, please comment to share thoughts regarding the matter. Depending on the feedback, I might go for it. If not, I will have to take up the offer of managing the artist's Patreon that I mentioned instead. Please and thank you.
I always welcome comments for those who like to share their opinions regarding the works that I post here. But they are certain comments from people who just can't comprehend certain renditions of my human versions of MLP characters or my OCs because of how big their breasts are.

"Those breasts are too big"

"Why they are so huge!? No way she can stand or have her spine intact with those boob!?"

"So gross, they're way too large."

I have to say to those said "Haters"....

News flash, people. They are just pics. And not any pics, they are MY pics. Yes, the breasts on most girls show are exaggerated but that's how I like them. Also, these are commissions, as in artwork that I paid for and requested. In other words, its up to the client's imagination how they want said works done by the artist they are collaborating with. My works doesn't have to make sense just because I don't follow real life physics. As long as I enjoy them and that there are other people out there who does, that's all that matters. Besides, its safe to say that the people who like seeing my posts outnumber the people who don't. In other words.

I'm here to stay... 'nuff said!
For those who still want to see more of :iconshonuff44:'s Pinkie Pie X AD image set that I'm working with, you can find the latest images at my FurAffinity. Also the latest image, Part 6, was paid by DameElizabeth who I met from one of Sho's streams. She was aware of the financial situation I'm in so she offered herself to cover the pic. No one ever done something like that for me. Because of that, I give my great thanks to her and will make sure to return the favor soon. There's only one image left for the set that I need to pay for and once Sho opens up his commission list once more, I need to commission the epilogue image for the set. Hope you guys been enjoying these image sets that Sho been drawing for me.
Happy New Year, everybody! Yeah, feel relieved to start off 2017 finally, even though its a rough start for me. Bet everyone are grateful that 2016 is over: so many celebrities passed away, ending up Donald Trump as our President (for FOUR years!), and such. My sad moment for 2016 was when my grandmother passed away. I still miss her but I visit her grave on special days. But there have been some good the past year. Anyway, this year I will be more resilient for myself financially since the next 5 years will determine my livelihood after. My mom is the only one working between my parents and she will be retiring in 5 years. Afterwards, they will sell our home so my brother and myself will need to be ready to live on our own and move into an apartment. Not only that, I need to get myself my own vehicle. With that said, I might have to hold out on commission purchases, at least not to make them so frequent or spend so much. For now, I will look forward to our first family vacation this year since forever. We couldn't make one ever since our grandmother moved in but now we finally be able to do so. Other things to look forward to are special commissions and continue to help further with Respec Studios. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy the new year.
Well, a lot of things have happened over the past few months after my grandmother's death. I'm at ease now and continuing my daily life as usual with no problems. However, I can't say the same for my twin brother :iconthunderfoxjt:. He just did a department transfer at the supermarket store we both work for but at a very bad time as the hours for part-timers were cut off which also counts for him. He already going through a second week of short hours and looks like he will go through a third one as well. If this keeps up, he won't keep his income stable unless he get the neccesary weekly work hours. For now, he have a temporary solution by hosting a GoFundMe page for his current situation. As much as I would help him, I will try but I have my own bills to take care off also. For now, I just want to spread the word and see if anyone could donate. Here is the page.

www.gofundme.com/jts-emergency…
For those who follow me and who are very close to me I would like to make a sad announcement. Today on August 24th my grandmother Maria Luisa mejias passed away at the age of 99. My only living grandparent has been living with our family for six years and I enjoy spending every moment with her since then. However I am fully aware how she's been going through with her life as she's been suffering from heart problems and Leukemia. Whenever I talk to her she always tells me she is fine as she does not want to say anything bad that would make us worry. And most of all I always enjoy her calm smile. Sadly I will never get to see that smile again but I do know that she is finally free from her suffering and that she is at a better place. I will never forget the happy moments I had with her and that I know that I did write for taking care of her and spending time with her. Might be some time for me to get over with but I know that I'll be fine. Thank you all for hearing me out.
Again, this is another reminder to all who view my DA page.

I DID NOT DRAW ALL THE ARTWORK YOU SEE IN THIS PAGE!!!

REPEAT!!!

I DID NOT DRAW THEM AT ALL!!!

You have to understand that these are all commissions I requested by various yet talented artists and I've always mention each artist for each piece I post as they deserve credit for the work and to signal boost about them. Always read the descriptions of each post if you want to find out who drew them. This definitely goes to new viewers out there. From now on, I am going to place a bold header for this reminder for future posts. I understand you guys love the works I post but guys must learn this fact at all times. Thank you for your time and cooperation

My buddy :iconthesoylentorange: is currently open for commission on doing editing and writing or at least discuss and give critiques on your ideas. He is in need of funds, especially in buying for a new computer, hence why I'm signal boosting this. He did work for me before on a long overdue comic script and did a wonderful job so he really deserves the credit. Overall, he got good workmanship and his critiques make sense.Check out his journal post here.

Writing/Editing Commissions OpenHey all, TheFwank here, a.k.a. SoylentOrange. My commission queue finally emptied, so time to open up commissions again!
I’m offering my services as a writer/editor for very reasonable rates, just e-mail me at TheFwank@mail.com . If you need help getting your story off the ground, I can organize your thoughts into an outline. If you’ve got an outline, I can help make a breakdown map of each major scene in the story. If you’ve got a breakdown map, I can help you segue between the scenes. And if you’ve got all of that done, I can proofread your draft and polish it to a mirror shine. I can even write in any spots you're stuck on, from a few paragraphs to a whole long scene.
Just bought some adoptables you need to make characters out of? Soy’s got you covered.  Working on an indie video game and need to fit a big thought into a small textbox? Soy’s succinct. Trying to write a comic and need help with composition?  Soy can make your pages flow.

Heyo:

I know its Christmas Eve but I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all of my friends and followers here on DA. I pretty much got no plans on how to spend tomorrow, just spending time with my brother by going out for food and a movie. Anyway, you guys try not to stress yourselves out today. I still working at this time but I will definitely get through it. Happy Holidays, everybody!

Every now and then, I get someone contacting me if I do commissions. Because of that, I need to post a reminder to all who follow me: I DO NOT, REPEAT, DO NOT DRAW ALL OF THE WORKS ON MY PAGE OR HAVE EVER DRAWN ANY GOOD ARTWORK..... EVEEEEERRRR!!!!

Whether they just found my posts out of the whim or neglect to read the descriptions of each post, I don't blame you guys. But again, I always mention the different artists who drew each piece shown here. The only thing I could draw are stick figures. Maybe one of these days I should make a post of how well I draw them just for laughs. I'm just a lover of artwork with his own characters and ideas that often commission artists to draw them then post them here on DA. Of course, I had my blog "GreatDragon AD's Busty Babes" but I decided to post here which is much accessible. So again...

GREATDRAGON AD = CLIENT OF ARTISTS THAT DOES COMMISSIONS? TRUE!!!

GREATDRAGON AD = ARTIST OF ALL WORKS SHOWN IN THIS PAGE? FALSE!!!

Ahem... that is all. Also, Happy Holidays.

A few months ago, my twin brother:iconthunderfoxjt: been considering to make a Patreon to help earn some cash to cover bills. Thought it would be impossible for him to host one on his own but luckily some of his close artists friends from FA and DA decided to help him out since they are also in the same situation as he is. Thanks to them, his Patreon group, EdenSpark Workshop, came to be to host exclusive artwork and content by these artists.

Support him or at least signal boost this. My brother and all the artists under his group definitely need all the help they can get in exchange of providing amazing work.

Hey guys:

If you have been following me for over the past year, then you are aware that I work for a game development group called Respec Gaming Studios :iconrespec-studios: as their Community Manager. for their fighting game project, S.H.I.F.T. Recently, we finally made progress as we now have a new lead animator and he have been doing a great job since he began working. It looks like things will run smoothly but sadly wouldn't last. My good friend Jason Canty of Angry Viking Press have become our biggest supporter since I first introduced him to our group and he has been funding our current lead animator. But these days her mother hasn't been in good health these days in which case would force him to stop paying our animator. We appreciate for everything Jason has done but the job we offered to our animator is his full time job and without pay he will be out of work. In order to support our animator and our project, our group decided to host a donation for this cause. We need to accumulate almost $5,000 to have our animator continue working with us for four months until Jason's mother's health is stabilized. For more details, here is the link

www.facebook.com/respecgamestu…

For all of my friends and followers, every bit helps. But if you don't think you are able to donate or if you have but want to do more, please spread the news to everyone you know and signal boost this if you support up and coming game development companies like ours. Would greatly appreciate it if you do. Thank you for your time and cooperation.

Noticed many people filling out a questionaire to celebrate 15 years of DA so I decided to fill it out myself

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Been on DA since 2003, so that's about 12 years now. Joined during the beginning of my college years and its thanks to my twin brother :iconthunderfoxjt: for introducing me to the community.

What does your username mean?

Since I don't have a Premium membership or now Core that they're calling now, the right display of my username is GreatDragon AD. I came up this username when I finally had Internet at my old home back at Puerto Rico and after joining the Fred Perry Fan Club. Been using it since its forum and IRC chat room. I've been a big fan of dragons, especially the Chinese kind, so I came up the Username "GreatDragon" then "AD" as the first two letters of my first name "Adrian".... and here comes all the Rocky movie references.

Describe yourself in three words.
Nice, friendly, and dedicated

Are you left or right handed?

Right handed while my brother is left handed. Kinda weird for twins, isn't it?

What was your first deviation?

Originally a screencap for proof a kiriban that I earned for an artist's page that I follow but that was gone long ago. My first official post as a contributor is this, a commission done by the talented Fred Perry :iconfredgdperry:.
Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie by Fred Perry by greatdragonad

What is your favorite type of art to create?
Writing stories and scripts.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
To actually draw a good Anime style for starters. All I can draw are stick figures, heh heh

What was your first favourite?
The Horrible Sketch by Aardcore

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I usually tend to fav the posts by the artists I follow that I like very much.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
That's a no-brainer for me, Gold Digger creator Fred Perry :iconfredgdperry:. If it wasn't for him, then my favorite would be my good friend Jon Freeman :iconjonfreeman:.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

Hmm, that's tough. I did met some here already but if I had to name a few that I haven't then it would the following:
- :iconjonfreeman:
- :iconliquidxlead:
- :iconoverlordjc:
- :iconlordcoyote:
- :iconmarauder6272:
Those are my top 5 but there are still other I would love to meet

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Another toughie. I'll just have to choose three. First would be Fred Perry :iconfredgdperry:. To me, this artists is one of the most hard working artists in comic book history. He continue to produce so much not only for his fans but because he enjoys it while doing it. Working on different series, doing the animation work for the OAV of Fold Digger all on his own, and now fulfilling his dream of producing his own game and still have time to interact with his fans and work on commissions. This man is a beast! Then there is Overlord JC :iconoverlordjc:. His style is poetry in motion which reminds me how much I love Anime. I don't think I've seen artist that could draw like that like he does. Not only that, he is a big Ranma 1/2 fan like I am. Last but not least is Jon Freeman :iconjonfreeman:. His art style is simple but it got that special magic and humor that teaches you to even enjoy the most simplest of styles. Goes to show you can draw whatever you want as long there are people who actually enjoys your work.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Microsoft Word

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I would say inside your dreams. Somehow, dreams are a mystery but at rare occasions it somehow give you the most amazing idea that you pray you would remember after you wake up then must put it into paper right away.

What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
When my twin brother showed me the community and inspired me to join it.

Well, thanks to my buddy :icon3pyon:, GreatDragon AD's Busty Babes is back on. Seriously, I thought I lost pretty much some of my best and oldest commissions that I received in the past. But found out 3pyon had to move his Bakunyuu.com site to a new server since it took place in GoDadddy.com so it might be gone for business at the end of the year. Again, I do apologize for not posting the blog to keep it updated for more than a year as I have neglected it, especially nowadays I've been posting here at DA for safer works from normal all the way to fully nude pics. But I still want to keep it to save all the work I gained since I began buying commissions. I'm also reconsidering to back up those said works in case something like this happens. Still, I appreciate everyone for your support.

Now then, I would like to share some words of opinion to some "certain" people. Reason I'm doing this is because of someone from DA who will remain anonymous because and if I mentioned the person's DA username then I would start a huge argument with this person and others who support him/her. He/She posted comments on my page and went far as sending me a DA note expressing how how/she feels. I understand this person is trying to send the message to me but please decide whether you want to make this public or private: I do notifications about these so its no need to do both ways. Seems he/she is aware of all the art I collect which is mostly about women with breast sizes that is does not completely exist in real life and assumes that I never seen how women's breasts look in real life. In short, he/she completely disgust it: you know who you are. I want to set some facts straight in bullet form:

- Don't assume I never seen women's breasts as if I'm been cooped up in my home for my entire life. I have full comprehension how breasts are in women, natural or implants, as I have seen them in my life and I usually happy with any women I am with by knowing who they are, not by the size of their breasts. Basically, don't assume anything if you do not completely know me online or in person. Also, my character Grape shown in most of the artwork I post is a bio-android so she is pretty much fake to begin to with not just her breasts, ha ha. See? I do get a laugh from my own characters.

- I enjoy big breasts because I have a fondness for them, even if they are up to unrealistic proportions. Most men do which is normal. I especially love breast expansion which got me into the process scene and I know I'm not the only person out there who is into it. Everybody have their own taste and interest in which I normally do not go against it. Even if there is something I don't like from said person, I try to forget it or at least share my thoughts to him/her privately, not in public.

- I'm aware the content I post may offend a great amount of people because of their own opinion but I'm not troubling anyone as I wanted to share these works to those who enjoy them as much as I am, not for those who dislike it. If you don't like it, just stay away from my page. Its just that simple.

-Almost all of the work that you have seen were paid commissions. In other words, these works were requested by myself and were paid to the artists to do so. So not only I'm getting the content I needed for myself and for others who enjoy it but I'm also helping the artists financially since its their source of income (prime or alternate) as I get to know them as their client. I enjoy getting artwork as it is great pleasure to see my ideas and imagination come to life and at the same time I'm helping the artists I commission. To those people who dislike the content that I request, I understand but you have no right to say to stop since I'm the one paying the artists, not you.

I just want to say that those haters that is good to share your opinions and critique. I would listen and try to understand but at this time I will not stop requesting work that I enjoy. Of course there will be a time in life where I should stop for various important reasons but right now is not happening. I mean, I've been trying to request normal work, even if it does not involve boobs, as I have been doing. However, I will continue to collect amazing artwork that I enjoy done by the most amazing yet talented artists that I met through my life. Haters will hate but I, which it truly matters, will go on with or without them.

PS: Something funny to cheer us up, do not open if you hate big boobs.
