Posted by DaveRooder - November 23rd, 2016

Started work on re-building the site the previous week. Comic Easel is the theme. Sadly all the tutorials with that are locked behind a paywall and those can be find inside only if you pay $5 or $30. I tried to do that - but for some reason the operation could not be finished. I spoke with the owner of the site : Brad Guigar -  - a cool guy and surprisingly a fellow artist. He's also owner of very successful patreon account - so he tried to do all his best to help me with the paypal issue - but sadly nothing happened.

However I found /again/ : http://scorp29.deviantart.com/ - you guys probably know him from the links below the Shadman's page. I thought he's located in Belgium, but instead I was surprised to find out he's in another - much farther location. Much, much farther. And very, very exotic. So he currently helped me with pulling out the navigation.

I'm trying also to figure out how to work the categories with the comic easel - but that's still a dark magic to me.

Soon the much difficult part will come - re-uploading images and my useless tryouts to remember what was the story behind every each one of them.

1266894_147849636423_thankyou.jpgHello guys - those of you probably noticed my site is not online for more than 2 weeks. What happened ?
Amerinoc my first hosting provider had major crash of their hardware and my site was completely lost. They didn't had any backup and that caused me to start looking for another hosting provider. The price for that pleasure was $250 for a new host. I have opened cheap commissions with the pricing you see on top. And until Halloween I got my $250. You better believe - I'm fast AF - and I'm showing that on picarto. Anyway.

I saw some of the most popular artist is with HostGator - so I decided to go with them. Sadly for me /as a client/ I didn't get the necessary service even with them. Their support required time to respond, time to answer and and at the end none of what they said was helpful. I was with them for 5 days and then I asked for chargeback.

For these 5 days I found that their system was really great - however as a newcoming client I was expecting from their support to give me the necessary information for me to set up my site as quickly as possible. Like a tour of some kind. This is located here, that there. The CP can be found on that link. None of these happened. 
As a new coming client is not my job to learn what is where located since the first day ! I would be a support myself if I should knew what and where is located on their site. 

I've had issues with domain transfer. The initiation was slow and the e-mail on the system was wrong : instead of the e-mail that had to point to my old registrar there was mydirtydrawings.com@whois - and they were stating that the problem is on me. I had to complain about that and they posted ticket to themselves. 
I've had question regarding the FTP settings : their support named "Jon" asked me - why do I need FTP settings if I already have WordPress installed and you see - my site is active ? - I had to give explanation to the support why do I need to have full control over my own website I paid $250 for. Then he said : you can find that on the CP. and that was it. Where is the CP ? Link please ? Can you help me out, assistance please ?! None of that. 
Another thing was with installing a plugin for the backup of my site. It was giving a critical error. Their interface is giving option to the client to pick if they have certain problems in order to state that when speaking with the support. So my problem was Wordpress related.  It looks neat  and promissing when you start picking the form, right ?1266894_147849715561_WP.jpg

Well - that is correct until you start chatting with their support. I see Fatal Error. And copy-paste it to the support who's saying: I don't see any error. You probably should start using another plugin or ask Wordpress about that.
Great. And conversation was over. The same day I found out that the settings I was trying to input on my FTP client are not working and I was given a Critical error. I didn't really wanted to get back and talk to the support about that - they would probably tell me to speak with the company who made FileZilla... And that all was on my day 4 with them. Later at night I just got on support chat - who by the way requires 10 minutes to load  - and every support online with some small exceptions requires between 5-6 minutes to respond / like they are not happy of doing their own job and they just need their work day to end as soon as possible. So I said : I want charge back.
I made a ticket for them pointing all the issues that happened to me. I want my money back!
No one responded to any of these tickets ! They stay like that even now:

And there was that guy William. Who just started to speak. He was paying attention, responding at once , giving me links - helped me with the settings for the FTP. Noticed that the Wordpress lines are because there's a conflict with two plugins : that was enough for me . He quickly fixed the problem with the wrong e-mail - and then he made a ticket that should initiate the domain transfer. I was somehow happy with his help and I said that to him: he asked me to give him high score on the chat - and I did that. I felt extremely tired - and went to sleep. When I woke up I started to think what happened last night. William was great - but there are many others on shift who actually were giving me crappy service the past 4 days. If I should have issues with my site - and those will happen for sure - there's no guarantee that this William guy will be on shift when this should happen. Where is William ?!? He can solve all my problems with the host ?I slept only for 3 hours.I figured that I don't need that kind of support.
I asked the support for charge back and then I went to see the status of the ticket William posted. It was still on hold.   I asked for charge back - this time for sure.
Those guys were making tickets for themselves and for the misterious and unknown figure of Administrator.. /capital A/.  I got my money back pretty quick. And then I found a new host. I went with FastComet.
Their chat system was fast. Lisa was there answering at once. Extremely helpful. She sold me the hosting and made a brief review of the functionality - I didn't asked for that - but I was happy. She was offering me to choose. I didn't asked for that - but I was happy.  I asked if I could get FTP access settings - she offered me to help with the settings and gave me link to the tutorial : Do you want me to help you do these or you prefer to make it on your own ? I didn't asked for that - and I was happy.  Domain transfer - the initiation was set by her and made by her -- it took her 2 minutes - because I delayed her with checking my e-mail. I asked her about Wordpress - she said : Our support will help you with installation of it and any plugin if yo want. I didn't asked for this - and I said : I can do it on my own - but if there's an issue whom I have to ask ? Just bug our support - she said. They will be there to help! 

I didn't asked her about anything of these - she was just shooting these and I was extremely happy - and she was extremely helpful. What host gator support did /or didn't do for 5 days - took Lisa less than hour . I'd say : simple tasks. Now the issue. If you type my name it still will show where it's pointing. I asked Lisa about that - and she said that I have to point the servers from my previous registrars - at Amerinoc. I did that 2 days ago, but still the site points at HG.

I checked their system - my domain was not listed in there - if it's not there - then why it is still pointing at them?
My first registrar is pointing at FastComet ? I spoke with the support of HostGator/again/- who responded the usual way: slow. The support girl said : your domain is still at your registrar - I have no power to control the transfer. And without waiting for any other response from me-  she quickly turned the chat - as a polite form of "fuck off". I gave her 10 - because I'm happy for not being with them anymore. Still my site points at them.

I asked Lisa /from FastComet/ and she noticed that I'm concerned: Davis - please calm down - it will take up to 5 to 7 days for this to work. Leave that to us - and don't bother ! Get some rest. Wait for a week! 

This was my personal opinion about Hosting Companies I dealed with - HostGator in person. I don't complain about their system or functionality - I didn't made to get to that - I'm complaining about  their unhelpful, slow and inadequate support.   The service quality of the companies depends on the employees. The performance of the employees depends on the management and attitude of their superiours towards them - salary, attitude, valuing the employees. From HG - the support was somehow afraid to make a bold move and help the client. Probably the pay there is low - and they don't care. Probably the flow of people who come and go is extreme . Most of the employees I met were having names like : Ranjeev, Krishna, Muaseem, Musa, Krishnamurti , Khaled, Ravindra... 
All of them were extremely happy - not to help me by doing a simple work. Their work. They were different.

To some of you HG probably works perfect - and I'm NOT trying to influence ... Still it won't harm for you to make a little research before choosing a host . I didn't do it - and I'm here in this position.

So I'm waiting for my site to start showing with FastComet. 

Until then - I'm curing my nerves by doing cheap commissions. Feel free to bug me on mail and ask for inquiry.

Hey guys - check this out !


Posted by DaveRooder - September 17th, 2016

So guys... I'm a needing tree fiddy - just like a good Loch Ness monsta - but this to fix my goddam car. 
I was riding Audi A4 avant- 1994. For 2 years it stays in front of my home - and it requires urgent repairs that are around $3500 ($3755 - to be more precise )/ these are the tree fiddy I was talking about . So I'm doing commissions - gathering the cash to send my old car for repairs. My wife want me to sell it - and get rid of it.... you see - it's useless - a grass is growing inside of it - even some cats started to hide somehow inside...

It's old - I know - it looks sad -   and the repairs are expensive, BUT - my kids grew up in here / they are still small / - but the car has sentimental value to me. I have feelings for it.
Can't go back to web designing - because I left it for good , can't go for MMA fighting - because my arm is weak (actually I never fought in MMA or fought at all ) - only thing that left for me is to draw.

I guess I must do about 120 commissions at the price of $30 in order to get these money - heh.


Posted by DaveRooder - September 13th, 2016

 Sadly for me I had to put some of those fucking banners. Got low or no incomes lately - and the date I have to pay the host is coming - so my asking is if there are guys who like what I do - please disable the ad block - let those porn baners go - I don't expect You to buy the shit they sell or show - I know even better than most of you that these offers are complete crap - to those who don't know I was adult graphic and web designer before and made a lot of ads and banners like the ones they show. Most of the content is not even their own.... but that's another topic of conversation - and I don't intend to go in deep with that. My asking is : Guys please do not disable the ads :-)

Anyway - those who wish to support me can do that the several ways:

1. Come and watch my page every day - I'll try to come with at least one drawing for the day.
2. Commission me / I can be contacted on the e-mail shown http://mydirtydrawings.com/commission-me/ or PM me - I prefer to draw "in front " of the client - on picarto : https://picarto.tv/mydirtydrawings - however there's a list of things I prefer not to draw anymore - please keep this in mind  if your thing is there - I will probably refuse to draw it : http://mydirtydrawings.com/donts/ 
3. Become a patron of mine  by pledging some cash on me every month: https://www.patreon.com/mavis - basically what I do there I'm showing it out on www.mydirtydrawings.com - with some small exclusions. The patrons who pledge $5 or $10 are able to request a drawing from me /included in their patronage/. The guys who gets impatient and want more than one drawing are able to commission me with the special pricing for patrons: Again please check this out : http://mydirtydrawings.com/commission-me/

I'm getting recently some negative messages about some of the things I post. Regarding those "tea parties".
Explanation : I am depicting famous songstress/actresses /or at least their faces - into lesbian-fisting orgy. The characters are squirting, there's semenal fluids everywhere - a mess.... Out of words how to name every each of these I just called the first one a "tea party". All of these are REQUESTED or COMMISSIONED by some of my patrons. 

On this stage of my "artistic" life - I'm drawing the things the people are saying , asking, paying for . Like I wrote on my site: I'm for hire/ some would say I'm a slave - we're all right/.
And some of the guys are taking their advantage of that fact. They purcahse and ask me to do their thing.

What's MY THING though ?

1. Pinups / I have to say I don't have much time to work on that /
2. Original characters, Game characters, TV and Comic Book characters (Marvel, DC, Dark Horse - I love them all!)
3. My interests are within mythology, legends, fairy tales, history

I want to have time to work on stories with my original character Anna. EveryTIME I want to work on that or something mine/personal  - I get notifications and bills with end date - therefore I have to do some jobs .

So basically guys - If you like what I do  - but you dislike some of the topics - don't blame me - you can contribute to the variety of the site by commissioning me or becoming a patron.

Sincerely yours ,

If anyone is interested to watch me streaming on picarto.
Here's 9:00 am / morning/ located in EU.

So. These days I've migrated to Comic Easel. Made some small tweaks on the design.
And started to upload all the stuff I did. Those are hundreds of drawings I made. A thing I hate to do. 
Checking out old DVDs/ like my archives/ - and I'm trying to remember what was the story behind every each one.
Not much of a success on that btw.
And there are still people who come and ask me to send them a drawing I made for them 4 years ago.

Like I remember who they are and what I did to them. Don't do that. If you don't kept it and you don't see it on the site - I'm not your archive. And I'm not gonna check it on the DVDs. It's a thing I hate a lot - to check in the archive.
At that time I could draw another thing and show it around - and that would make my day and make me happy.

Still going with the uploads though - www.mydirtydrawings.com

Well... the next day after I sent them e-mail explaining that the submissions I made - although being sexually suggestive are not against the rules. And asked them to lift the ban. The response from their side was something that was saying : your ban was lifted and thank you for taking a time to understand our rules....

Which is totally a butt-dick move - it's like a cop stopping your car for an infringement of traffic regulations - and when you're calmly explaining that you didn't do anything wrong - he has nothing to do but to let you go with the words: "Take care , Sir - and next time be careful ! "

Careful ? How so ? Careful not to stuble on you , during your shift ? It's like a russian roulette. You never know!
However I held myself from re-uploading the same images because the White Imgurian Knights are so sensitive and would report me again and again... I drew and showed this : http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/mavisrooder/storm
Downvoted, because I  oversexualized the character ! 

Well... people are people. Today we eat hamburger tomorrow we fucking hate it cause it gives us fat asses.

Never mind. I'm on imgur again.



Posted by DaveRooder - August 16th, 2016

So guys I tried to be part of imgur community for a week. When I decided to share some of my drawings in there. The first one was this http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/mavisrooder/rogue-level-12- and they got it removed almost immediately. I was preparing it to be a joke with whom to troll the gamers around. I was "advertising" non existing game, who is so awesome it has such kind of characters. Some people bite - and started to ask about the name of the game , some wrote "lol under the comments". I started to draw the Orcish girl in order to pick their interest even more. I even asked some of my patrons to come and support me there by posting some weird comments like they are too playing "the game"- everything part of a vicious and nefarious plan - which at the end had to end with numerous of hot and sexy drawings of non existing characters. However I got this image removed .

I saw their notification yet I decided to go on the edge and submitted this one: http://mavruda.deviantart.com/art/Summer-Time-615721201 - thinking that for not seeing genitalia , nipples or nudity - would make it and the image will serve it's purpose - to make people laugh. Believe me Imgur has a many photos racier than this stored on their servers ! 

They got me banned from imgur community - this somehow angered me - like "what did I do wrong ?"- however we are not able to see our own mistakes. I blame no one for this. It's their policy. Funny cats, cut off fingers, flying dildos / no pun intended with my recent white knight drawing /, gay innuendos and tons of memes. Not much of art or drawings.

I was preparing this illustration for the white knights who adore cats and dolphins there - /the one with the White knight /- but I could not post it - because I already got banned.

Some words about White knights / my words and thoughts - and I'm not trying to influence you to think the same/

White knights are people like you and me, yet they believe they are different and they do good. They often are not creative - creativity is not their thing. They are silent , often lurking in the dark - just like the haters - but they pretend to be different, having their own - simple tastes. Sometimes they think they are pretentious. They use other people as excuse for their own actions : if there should be any children they would see this !!!! 

White knights are riding unicorns - the mounts of their own self-delusion - the Unicorns of Justice. Those mounts are having short stature - very short legs - but pretty normal and marvelous frame - which is just enough for the white knights - they don't have to do any efforts to put their leg on stirrup and push up to the saddle. It looks like normal horse, but in fact it's pony unicorn. Riding that mount the White knight cannot see far more than their community - like over the horizon, and they cannot travel too far from their community - remember the short legs - the unicorns are getting tired easily !

White Knights are taking their job quite seriously - and if you're stupid enough to make a point they use the codex they are following and living by : To Serve and Report ! 

Just to say those people don't exist only on IMGUR. They are everywhere - in every form. It's that guy who's standing next to you on job - he's smiling at you, and he's telling you "hi" - but he's always watching you and waiting for you to make a wrong move. And we - as people are making mistakes constantly. We call that kind of people sneakers or snitchers. Sometimes we become snitchers too - and to justify our actions we repeat to ourselves: "We did it right! ".

Now everything is going like it used to be - I hold no grudge against imgur - I've had some fun time there - the comments of some of the people were really crazy and the submissions too. I'm getting back to work. And what I'm working ? 

I'm working over my future - to make people watching my stuff.



Posted by DaveRooder - July 31st, 2016



This comic strip should be presented on  my site after 3 weeks or less on : www.mydirtydrawings.com - you can see the version without the "censored"balloons on my page there - however - I'm going on vacation tomorrow.
This is actually a requested drawing for one scene , but like I already announced to my patrons if I like the idea of someone's request - I turn it into a comic strip / if it's witty, funny, clever, twisted and cool /. The condition is the patrons to be honest - and not to be afraid - because I don't judge. I'm like a therapist and I'm hearing/reading your ideas / when request time is on/ - and if these are NOT on my DONTS list  - I draw it  - so keep that donts list in mind - it exist on my site as a separate section on the navigation menu.
About my vacation -  I'm not going to get the laptop with me (for a second time) - that won't be vacation - the first time I was without the laptop it was somehow painful, because I wanted to check mails , read comments, write comments, write and post and draw stuff, give likes , share stuff - but I had only my cellphone - and there was no internet , the mobile operator didnt had any coverage in that area where I was resided for a week - in basics - I was in a total information pitch black.  This time we are about reside in a hotel with internet and everything , but we will try to repeat the same situation but in better condition and stuff....
Also I hope I will get back in full health and safe in order to draw and finish the comic strip.
About mydirtydrawings -
Guys - have in mind that I'm showing EVERYTHING I do there for free, but in order to proceed on doing this - I need to pay fee for hosting and other necessary stuff. So please consider of supporting me on patreon.com/mavis -
If you support me on patreon - you're supporting mydirtydrawings and me. There's no one else in there but me - I do all the stuff - so if someone supports the site or the drawings, comics animations in there - is supporting me in person. And that's what I am looking for !  [16x0]
As for the guys who are like "I don't pay for art, or porn art"- well - my site is just for you. You can watch it for no pay.
The rest who understand the idea of creation and the work of the artist and the fact that artists need to eat, pay bills and pay for health , just like the truck driver, the museum clerk or every working person on Earth  - please be my patron at :
I don't draw only porn or erotic stuff - but 99% of the things I do there are for adult - so just like on my membership site before the patrons are dictating the content!  [16x0]  I will make sure to post mainstream works too - these are helping me to keep myself on the ground - not everything we see is porn after all - I like heroic stuff, swords, magic and beasts fighting brave heroes....
Thanks - and see you in the next month around 10th - 12th.
Now about the comic strip on top: There will be no talk balloons at all or I might add some - I don't know yet - the concept pages are ready though.  I don't believe there's a need of talking - but we /you will see about that.
Since it's not quite clear without proper description what is it about - here's the story: four friends - women at age between 35 - 40 are on vacation in a pool , where they see the young life guard. The guy is well endowed. And the rest of the comic is just pure action. Keeping it simple.
First this is requested drawing by one of my observers / that's the top tier title of my patrons who pledge $10 for me each month/.
Observers has the ability to request a drawing / each time I launch a thread - "send me your requests". For now I'm able to fulfill everyone's request, but with increasing the amount of these patrons I will have to activate "cooling list "option which will put people who already got a requested drawing into waiting - until others are getting their turn. BUT what if those guys are impatient about waiting , BUT still want to support me and GET something anyway ? Well - commissioning is the other option, BUT they get a SWEET DISCOUNT of my current pricing. Like 10% of it. I believe that this would make all happy somehow.
With more supporters I could get better equipment - and eventually to start doing flash animations more often - because this is another way for me to tell more crazy stories. I'm working with the ideas thrown by my patrons and I'm mixing it with my own - and the result is really crazy. It's a way I communicate with the people.
Free lovers get their view, Supporters get me - and I'm ALL YOURS ! So guys - Allow me... NO - LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU!
I need your support on patreon !
End of the hosting plan of my site is coming soon - and I need to move to another hosting provider since the current one is providing me a really lousy service - my site goes down way too often - their support does not attend most of the sites they host - and recently they removed their backup option - which totally sucks.
I will be seeing you - in two weeks - when I get back home.
MANY MANY  Thanks to all those who are supporting me on patreon - by pledging something on me every each month, also "thank you" to those guys who are making positive and supportive comments or comments sharing their expression under my submissions everywhere I post. Thanks to all the messages and mails I get from supporters and people who asked for commissions: Sorry for not accepting anything - but I really needed to take a rest after this hard year - and the secondary surgery.
THANKS AGAIN ! I Will come back with more submissions in two weeks or less.
Sorry for the very long message guys - but this is my appeal to all of you - current and future patrons., supporters, friends and fellow artists !
