Free Commission Give aways

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 24, 2014, 4:18 AM


Yoooosh i'm finally back from company work and thought about some specials for the pre-christmas time. I recognized that a lot of people asked for commissions but couldn't afford one ;_; Maybe money is a bit overrated these days so i want to do some commissions for free yeap.
If you have an OC and want it to be drawn by me i think you should give it a try ^__________^ But please do not ask for fanarts or other peoples stuff. Everybody with Original Characters is welcome though.

I will draw the give aways with pencil and maybe i turn on my camera for recording and make a youtube vid at the same time but no promises for this. When its finished i upload a photo here on Deviantart like the recent ones in my gallery. I won't send out the originals but if you want a scan of it i will do one for you. :heart:

I will choose randomly with a favor for interesting OCs and clear understanding of the information given. So don't paste endless stories in the comment beneath. Feed me with the most important information about your character. Make my imagination dance!!!!

If you already have graphics of your OC the better for me. Upload them here on Deviantart into your Gallery or into your STASH. I won't click on external links when i don't know the referrer! (afraid of bad scripts)

you can decide the style to be manga or semirealism so don't forget to write it in your comment. If i don't find it there i will choose manga for the style.

Good luck! :happybounce:

What meants to be a Pro?

I was talking with somefriends the other day, they told me that i should quit deviantart and move to this new fresh pages were profesionals are, because deviantart was filled with kids,art wannabes and social dudes. They didnt said it as something disrespectful oe something, they were just giving me a nice advice to get more audience. But that got me thinking, this guy is really good this days his style its uniquegets top clients and stuff, but 5 years ago his art was really filled with flaws, he was one of those kids he was complaining deviant art was filled with.


That got me thinking  he has a different point of view of how been a Pro means to me. For me Pro doesnt mean professional, its a short word for PROMISE. Pro artists are people that can keep a promsie, and thats really important. Its so sad when they relate Pro word to art skills, its like they draw this red line on the floor and they measure people who can get in and who gets out. When its the moment when an artist feels that he is better than some rest and  starts to see other artists from a shoulder?


I must say that , its a hard thing to control, i must admit that when i get piss off by other artist i paint a temporaly line to draw him to the floor, then erase it my objective its to ground the artist back to the ground, floating in the air can be adangerous place to be.


Everyone can be a Pro:


- A kid  6 years old with a terminal disease drawing a painting to make  his parents happy, thats a pro.

- Nieces drawing something on a sheet of paper to give it to his uncle as a birthday gift because they dont have any money, thats a pro to me.

- A dude painting flowers in her girlfriends nails, thats a pro to me.

- A young artists that can draw that good yet, but share tips to other people to help them be on his level, thats a pro to me.

- A not talented kid that probably wont have the skill levels matured but have courage enough to show a  created character of his own to the world, thats a pro.


Some people say that been a pro its to work and get paid money, to live by your craft, but what if there is this talented artists that works by night in a super talented comics company but by day, he works at his dad restaurant, he is not living by the money of his craft, but thats a big Pro  to my eyes.


Been a Pro its not about an status or a top of your art skills, doesnt matter if you are in highschool or in a career, if a client gives you work and you promise him you will get the job done in monday, you should keep that promise, that its been a pro, if you cant keep that promise you aint a pro. Always meet deadlines, thats the crucial thing of been a pro, meet the date you promised to the client. Im case you cant, dont hide from client explain what problems had happened in your life and he would understand and create a new promise for a new deadline.


Been a Pro, its to promise yourself each day that you will try the hardest you can, doing a job quickly or with not enough quality, that aint pro to me. Always promise yourself to do better each day, always learn, promise yourself to grab an art book study practice, do this everyday. Most of the time i feel im doing this not for me, but for the people that couldnt give art a big part of their life, but they support you, you are carriyng those people dreams.



Dont brag, Pro's never ever brag, i had meet people or seen people that their middle name its the company they did one job or two. For example that person its me lets say you just meet me and i say to you, "Hi im Hector i worked with Fushindoshi, i mean come on, they probably do this at conventions to impress chicks, ladies avoid those dudes seriously, reply to them, "Hi my name is Cassandra and i dont fucking care".  Seriously that bad habit of some artist needs to get down to the floor. We know this is a lonely work, and its hard to meet chicks, but seriously , seriously, i mean seriiioooussssly. Thats the time i appear with my red marker and do a line in the floor. The dude totally deserved a red marker am i right? I funky hate Hector Fushindoshi.


If you see me in a convention and i suddenly grab a red chalk and draw a line in the floor, get away from me, im like a rised viper that it will start to get in venom mode, and for a tip, always carry a red crayon, you wont know what jerks you will found at the convention.


Talking about pros at conventions, sometimes they aint a jerk, you just catch them at a bad moment, like this dude that wanted to say hi to me, but i was almost running to a bath room, dammit, i dont like when food does wrong thing to your stomach in other cities, i could only reply with a sweating hi and scream to him like three rooms away i will be back i need to get out of here. did saw the dude again, but picture this sometimes they get a call of a family memeber they just died, and you ask them for a sktech and he says leave me alone, you say what a jerk, but you wont knoe the true story, but if the dude always like a dive,  even online, its time to use a red marker.




By the way i will start seeling red markers at conventions, hhahahahahaahhaha joking, but hey that could be a nice idea. anywa lets continue.


My sketchbook aint a vip area, anyone can enter my sktechbook. This happen to me at a convention, a dude showed me his sketchbook and he told me he only ask sketches from people the likes and admires. But thats kind of sad, i mean thst means you only like a few people, i enjoy more a bad drawn sktech from someone that never drawn in her life, but says was nice meeting you keep going, than a totally super nice sktech drawn with perfect anatomy that only has his name. always carry an sketchbook and let people you meet to leave a record, when i feel bad about my art i just pull out one of them, then i get flash backs of that good time.


Remember a Pro doesnt have a VIP sketchbook. If i dont let you draw somethign on my book look at the floor you probably have a red line underneath.


Been a Pro aint easy, past convention, my feet were literally killing me, my feet were like clay, i went tot he convention not weraring good sneakers, and walking for 5 days were killing me, slept like 4 hours each day, eat like one food per day, you almost get flu, and you meet another artist  and you have to smile. Its hard aint easy.


I had meet people thats are truly "Promises", someone with a talent well used its a promise, this dues and girls are from countries far far away from my own, but each year they see me they salute me like i was an old friend they havent seen in a longtime, that make me smile even if im crying of joy inside of me. Those people in their past life were flowers, a plant lowered in the floor with strong roots, that wind will never pull out. Those friends im talking about, if they are reading this you know are you, unless you see a red line on the floor.


So dont become one of those jerks that  use the company name they worked as a middle name, avoid them ladies, run with the dudes that has beards, they are usually more fun, by the way i dont shave girls, wink wink (girls suddenly go back and paint a redline in front of me, hhahahahahahahahahahahhaah :(  .....).




So remember been a pro its to keep this promises :

- Always meet dealines(extremely important)

- Find beauty in everything( sometimes i can spend hours watching a 6 year old drawing, trying to learn why i like it and why i should add his sill to my drawings) , inpiration comes fro anything, not just from art skills.

- Heard and advice, even if you dont like it swallow it, because maybe in a couple of years you will see what they meant. Each person has their own learning curve, they can be slow like me.

- Always give 110% of your best, even if the result its crap, clients like this promise when you give the best you could.

- Dont be lazy.

- If someone invite you to do a tutorial, a presentation before an audience, or to have a stand in a convention, they already paid room and trip fees, and you are terrified and you want to cancel, dont cancel you made a promise, man up, aint pro to cancel compromises(or should i say con-promises) at last hour.

- Dont brag, seriously, dont brag to get ladies. And dont mock other artists on his face to make it feel bad, unless he is a jerk, remember those markers.

- Be polite, i just can stop saying this promise enough.

- Be helpful, give other artist help, because we all had help from someone else in a crucial moment in our lifes, its called karma, always return the favor.

-Work hardaer for the people you promised you will succeed, doesnt matter if you fail at the end, it wont matter if you give your 110%

- Dont judge art by artskill, but by content, the coolest ideas sometimes comes from people that cant draw, artskills are just a plus to the eye, but not the mind.



I wish i could add more points, but this is a personal way of looking for me of been a Pro, for me aint a check pay or a top level of skill, been a Pro means to be a gentleman. I just wanted to share my point of view, some people say that they like this type of journals i do, its not an objective journal,  it could mean other thign to you the word pro, i just wanted to show how i see the word pro.





Remember dont break the promises you had made for yourself, there is nothing worse than liying to yourself.

Lets talk about Nick-elodeon (rant)

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 23, 2014, 4:01 PM



Well... since I have Dish and Time Warner is having a little spat with Dish right now, all I had was Nicktoons and Nick. That's how I got hooked back on Invader Zim. That they use to play on Sundays at 3 for a hour on Nicktoons, till the scheduled changed and IZ isn't on anymore for the next few months

Those evil basters... I also herd recently they cut the legion of Korras Budget and fire some people?? isn't that one of their highest rated shows? 


Wow.. Nick is going down the toilet fast.. I wish they would stop trying to make Real live people cartoon characters, just because Disney channel made this shit popular doesn't mean you can do it for half your network. Most of their live action shit.. is horrible it makes me want to rip my eye balls out with a spork.

God Nick you use to be so amazing... and put the cartoons first... But now most of your stuff it seems to just try to rip off other things  it thinks is popular to have a a chance to stand up against Disney and the one really rocking it right now Cartoonnetwork.  

Nick you are very much dead to me... I hope in the near future you can put your self back together and remember your roots.  

this is not saying all their new stuff is bad I found TMNT to be pretty good btw. But most of the shows suck like its trying way too hard.
