RozenGuarde by JFMstudios

These are digital illustrations I commissioned Rozen-Guarde to paint Cassidy and Jane for me. She's a very underrated artist. Please follow her work. Not to mention, she shows a versatile range of art. Crafting, painting, architecture, drafting, manga, and portraits.  

Here it is. That introvert video I've been asking you guys about a few weeks ago.
And by that, I mean I'm gonna put all my time and energy in J&T related stuff. Whether it be Episode 14, the Quickies, or stand alone images for the 2018 calendar. Also, I gotta revamp some images for the website. I'll be updating everything on January 2nd. So I kindly request no commissions until December 1st. 

Jeff & Taylor will have its 13th anniversary November 16th! So I gotta make a special video for the occasion. Sorry for not being that active, guys. A lot happening.

Hey, my main dudes and dudettes, here's a lengthy video about my time in SenshiCon in Anchorage, Alaska! It's a really great anime convention and I plan to return next year!
I'm talking about Autumn. The season. Okay, I'm writing this Journal up to let you guys know what will be going on with JFM Studios. I'm 28 now, so that means I have to act like a man! And a real man knows what to do with his comic series and commissions. So here we go:

Jeff & Taylor. The website will be updated January 2nd with an updated look and update schedule! Between now and January 2nd, I'll be making a whole bunch of J&T Quickies, and writing episodes. I just want the J&T website to have a consistent schedule so fans will have something to look forward to twice a week. Tuesdays and Saturdays, folks! I'll also be working on a few new illustrations for the J&T 2018 calendar.

The Loud House. You know, I'm not as into LH as i was a year ago, but I'm still gonna make more pictures and continue the 'dream series'. I got Lynn, Lily, Luan, Leni, and Lincoln left...I just work on them when I feel like it. But they all will be done before the year's over.

Commissions. I'm still taking commissions and I still got a few to finish. Please be patient, cuz my day job is really not making it easy on my schedule. But I will start sending INVOICES to you so you can pay that way. It's a new rule on Paypal or something. Also, expect your commission to be done in two weeks or less--that'll be my new motto when I have my invoices ready.

That's it. Hope y'all understand.


Here we go, guys. A youtube video talking about my smut drawings or the past (And possible future). Take a gander and laugh along. My opinions on rule 34 is this…I don’t care what you draw–have at it. I may not agree with certain subject matter, but I’m not gonna tell you to stop.
Will I ever succeed with my art? My main goal is to work full time on my comics. I don’t care about getting rich. All I want is enough to get by. The more I create, the happier I am. But with a full time job, it is hard to frequently update my website and do requests, videos and commissions. Not to mention, I have those days when I feel like a terrible artist and I have a shitty style. Everyone goes through that. It’s how you press on that determines whether you’re cut out for the job. Stay strong everyone. CREATE! Even when you’re feeling down.
It's been two years since this happened and I like to share it with you on DA! It was so much fun and I look forward to more interviews!

I don't have a special drawing for this day, but I'll write this Journal for the occasion. Welp, it did it. This is a cartoon show that really caught my attention for some reason. At a time when I was very skeptical about another cartoon show getting my attention like Gravity Falls. But, hot diggity dang, I fell in love with this cartoon! Now, I was  one month late to the party, but I started drawing legit fan art and I've gained about 600 new watchers! Once again, THANK YOU! I've also met some cool people and fellow artists too! To be perfectly honest, while I don't want Loud House to last FOREVER, I hope it gets another three or four years.

Now, here are JFM Studios Loud House Stats: 
Favorite Character: Lynn Loud
Least Favorite Character: Flip
Favorite Episode: Pulp Friction
Least Favorite Episode: Two Boys and a Baby
Character I want to see more of: Carol Pingrey
This show needs more: Tender/sad moments
This show needs less: Fart jokes

So yeah, I'll do something special next month for the anniversary that I myself became a fan. See ya peeps later!

Decided to to a fun Journal entry. It's been a long time since I've done a character Q&A. This time, you can ask the cute girls of Jeff & Taylor any question you want and they'll answer. It can be personal, hypothetical, whatever. Ask as many questions as you want as long as you're not overdoing it. I mean, these characters have busy lives ;). Let's have fun!

-JFM
For those of you who don't know: I have an original comic series called Jeff & Taylor. It's set in a fictional city called Summerville. It's in the United States, there are lots of beaches, and it never snows there. So the geography of its location is pretty simple to figure out. Some of my readers guessed it's located in California. Nope, it's not. You see for over a decade of having this series in my brain, I always imagine Summerville to be in Florida. It never snows there and it's not exactly "The South" because only two of my many main characters have a Southern accent.

Gravity Falls, Oregon. Royal Woods, Michigan. Summerville, Florida. Yes. So if you're wondering WHERE in Florida, it's right below Perry...In JEFFERSON county! Just imagine instead of Big Bend Wildlife Management Area, there's a modest city of 300,000 people. So yeah, I just wanted to post this just because. I don't know if you guys are interested in J&T, but I guess I wanted to give perspective. I really don't know or have much love for Florida's, um, LAWS or government, but it IS my fictional world, so...in the J&T universe, Florida's a decent place. Summerville though, is plain weird.

-JFM
How would you feel if I made NSFW art of my characters again? That was the question of the latest poll and the results were interesting. You guys were split on wanting to see them and not caring. And about 8 of you didn't want me to do it. HAHA! XD

Look I gotta be honest, I wrote that poll for pure amusement. I'm not gonna be drawing Rule 34 again. I'll just draw some sexy pg-13 pics with some teasing instead. That's how I roll nowadays. I say that's the best deal for some middle ground. Although...one of these days I should make an episode of Inside JFM Studios where the topic should be about my past scandalous-drawings. Eh...Only if it has high demand. 

But yeah, no porn from me anymore. Sorry to disappoint. ;)

-JFM
What is up, my peepers? March is finally here. This year's moving on way too fast. :-/ But anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know the deal that's going down in March. March Madness. Reefer Madness. Just kidding.

Jeff & Taylor:
I'm still working on J&T episode 13. Golly gee...You know, it'll be done when it's done. I'll be dedicating Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to work on my main J&T issues. Seems reasonable. Brick by brick, the house will get done. But to be real, I am moving rather swiftly compared to my last few episodes.

Commissions:
I'm opining up commissions again to everyone! Gimme that work! Let me work! I'd rather do commissions than go to my 9-5 job. (It's actually 8-6, but whatever).

The Loud House:
More LH drawings on the way. The dream series will continue. I'll probably do Lynn or Lori next. Oh, and expect an epic Lynn drawing this month too. 
Loud House - Lynn smiled 

Uncle Link:
Dafuq am I gonna continue on this? I keep forgetting. It's such a funny low-brow comic! A lot of people will probably find it offensive, but eh. I don't care. If Chris Savino has Eddie Puss, lemme have Uncle Link!

Sentimental Youtube Video:
I just might make a video talking about my struggles as an independent comic artist. Hope it will open a few minds and inspire more to make videos about their own struggles. 

-JFM
Alright, I'm just gonna give my honest two cents on these topics. I'll dive into more details in a future Youtube video, and I'd like to hear your opinions. It would really help my video. :)

Loudcest:
As Newt Gingrich would say, "Haha! I think it's weird!" and it is. At first when people compared Loud House with a ‘Harem Anime” I thought it was a joke. But...some fans are serious about it! Ahhhhh! Look, I don't condone shipping siblings together or drawing them making whoopie, but at the same time, I don't care what other artists do. Whenever I see an artist I follow draw the Loud kids romantically together, I don't get mad at them. I just move on and pay attention to their other art. It IS a fantasy within a fictional show, so...have at it, hoss. So if you yourself support Loudcest seriously or just for shits and giggles, keep in mind that ol' JFM won't hate you or unfollow you.

Lewd House:
It's the code name for Loud House rule 34 (aka porn) NOOOOOOO!!! Oh, yes...it's a thing. I said that I will never draw Loud House rule 34 even if it's a commission. I like my art to be appropriate and clean. That's MY thing, but there are artists who I follow even here on DA who draws Lewd House. Again, I don't condone it, but they're allowed to draw whatever they want--as long as they don't post it on the wrong place where kids can see. You know what I'm saying? Although, I wish they'd leave the five younger sisters alone. Lily's a baby for crying out loud, but I hate to tell another artist what to draw/ what not to draw, so I just let them be. 

Safe House:
Okay, so what's this? These are the group of people (Mainly on the Tumblr page 'Safe Loud House') who post family friendly stuff about the show. That's very noble of them, but at the same time, they have some flaws. First, they REALLY antagonize Lewd House and Loudcest. I understand, but if it were me, I'd just not mention them and focus on my posts. You'd get less trolls that way. They reblogged ONE of my pictures before: "Super Lincoln", but that's it. I don't think the mod likes me due to my Sad Loud House series or because I follow JCM and SB99. They can do what they want to do on their own blog, but I also don't condone others POLICING a whole fandom. So I unfollowed the blog. They're probably doing better, but they still talk about their headcanons and demanding that some of the sisters are lesbians and wired stuff like that. Nothing wrong with gay characters at all. It's just thinking at Lola--a six year old--is gay, is just...strange to me. I know headcanons can be fun, but they take theirs so seriously, that they'd get upset when the ACTUAL show's canon foils it.

So those are my thoughts. I'm pretty sure a few of you were curious on what I say. But what about you? What are your thoughts?
