EDIT: Holy crow, I literally just found out that since Alyssa in Repose sat in Dropbox at one point, I was able to recover the source files even after removing them! Thank you Dropbox, I freaking love you! :tighthug: Now I don't have to worry about burning a gaping hole in my wallet on file recovery!
:iconlawooplz:

Back in late December, my Mac's hard drive suffered a catastrophic logical hard drive failure. I was working on the early stages of Alyssa in Repose at the time. The operating system wouldn't boot, but the files were still accessible. So, using a separate laptop as a backup drive, I was able to recover all of my most important files, wipe the Mac's hard drive, reinstall the operating system, and put all my files back. It sucked, but I was able to get my computer back up and running after a couple of weeks. That, and shelling out a bit of cash for a 32 GB USB memory stick to use as a temporary boot drive. If you follow me on Twitter (@MabonTail, bee tee dubs,) you'd have basically seen me live-tweet the whole event.

Fast forward a month later. I was watching videos on YouTube when my computer seizes up entirely. Then I start hearing a clicking noise from my hard drive. I turn it off, then back on, and again the OS wouldn't boot. This time though, I get an image of a flashing folder with a question mark. Basically, I've come to the conclusion that my computer has suffered another catastrophic hard drive failure, this time of the mechanical variety. Bit more difficult to recover from. Hopefully I can send my Mac to my local computer repair shop and have them salvage my newest files.

I saw this coming for a while now, since my Mac is over seven years old. My old graphic design instructor back in my college days told me it'd last about this long. But, I'd be more copacetic with it had I put my Alyssa in Repose source files in Dropbox or any of my USB memory sticks rather than my not-backed-up art folder. It's basically the one file I care about salvaging at this point, since everything else is already backed up. If I had backed up Alyssa in Repose, I wouldn't even bother with file salvage.

Right now, I'm using my desktop PC as a backup system so I can still work on digital art and my studio stuff. Hopefully I can save up for a new hard drive soon, either an internal or external one. Preferably both, in a perfect world. If any of you here want to chip in and help me out, I'm always open for commissions, and I've got a Patreon  you can support.
Alyssa In Repose by Mabon-Tail
Alyssa In Repose
I figured it was time to give Alyssa Reynard a slightly new hairstyle after doodling up some poses for a potential hand-drawn animation test. And completely renovate her bedroom, since I didn't want to be lazy and simply stick her in front of something empty and boring. Seriously, swan-diving face first into interior design with no real prior experience absolutely kicked my tail, but I seriously like Alyssa's new hair.

Marked as Mature for nudely bits.

Made in Adobe Illustrator and Flash CS6.

I'm trying to get back into the swing of things in terms of my art. Your support on Patreon will help me a great deal on that front.
You determine how much you want to donate per art piece, animation, or voice clip. You can cancel at any time, so you'll never worry about overspending. You'll even get all sorts of neat perks that get bigger the more you give.

The best part is, all of my artwork will still be 100% free to view. Nothing that shows up here, my FurAffinity gallery, or my YouTube channel will ever be hidden behind a pay wall. That's the beauty of Patreon.

…And to help kick things off, I'm opening up for commissions. On top of that, I'm going to formally launch my Patreon soon, so anyone who wants to drop a dollar or two my way can get some nice little perks out of it. Considering how ludicrously infrequently I've been making art, anyone who supports my Patreon will not be charged by the month, but rather by the piece.

All my art and animations are still going to be free to view, but any support you fine people can provide would be deeply appreciated.

I'm a Pagan artist with a love for tarot and an admittedly unhealthy addiction to video games. I specialize in digital art and various anthropomorphic animals, especially foxes... At least, I would if I wasn't so easily distracted. I'm also in the process of making two separate tarot decks, one of which is The Vulpine Tarot, and the other is a compilation of furry Tarot Badges that I plan to sell to other furries.

My Fur Code
FCFsm3ad A++++$ C D++ H+ M P+++ R+ T++~+++ W Z Sm RLA a cm++ d+ e+ f+ h* i++ j p+ sm#

My Con Schedule
Furlaxation '12

My Llama Policy
I have absolutely zero interest in deviantART's llama badge program, therefore I have disabled my badge notifications. If you send me a llama badge, I will not know about it… Ever. If you feel compelled to show your appreciation for my artwork by giving a llama badge, I recommend that you comment or fave the works you like, or even watch my gallery instead.

TL;DR ~ You give a llama, you get nothing! You lose! Good day, sir!

Hi Mabon-Tail, have u ever watched ''Bonkers'' when the animated ''Disney'' TV series was last recently seen on ''Disney Channel'' and later ''Toon Disney''??

can u give me 3 of your fave ''Bonkers'' characters??

have u ever watched another ''Disney''-made animated show ''Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers''??

In the show's first episode ''Catteries Not Included'' where the ''Rescue Ranger'' team solve their first case which involved a missing pet kitten that the little girl was in tears for when it got stolen by ''Robotic Dogs'' created by the show's first villain ''Professor Norton Nimnul'' along with the other 'kitty-napped kittens' fur as static electricity, have u ever seen that first ''CnDRR'' episode??

can u go on ''YouTube'', search ''Catteries Not Included'' and click on one of the vids and u'll see a little girl inside the police station and inside her parents house and then can u draw the little girl she has long brunette-colored hair with a blue hairband on top, her red-colored jacket with a white polo shirt inside, dark blue shorts and black shoes and white socks and then can u draw her wearing her pink collared fancy longsleeved pajamas barefoot that she have on while waiting 4 her kitten to return home, can u draw her and post it to your ''Newest Deviations'' page, please??

Dear Recipient,


It has come to my attention that you have been viciously trying to murder my favorite button. The assassination failed and the button survived for others to use it still.


Thank you for trying anyway, the annoying little button had it coming! And you have faved some of my photos by doing so! That's even more awesome! Proceed to trying to smash my +Watch button to pieces if you want to receive more Fursuit/Animal photography! I try to upload regularly!


Thank you again for being all awesome and amazing and faving my stuff and such! 


Sincerely,

-Reinout
