I'm not picky, they can be colorful, natural, biolluminescent you name it.
I'm letting people have free creativity over this, yes that means you get to do WHATEVER you want!
If you color them be sure to choose color palettes from this site here http://www.colourlovers.com/palettes
However I mayyy be a little picky and choose ones I absolutely love c:
You could say it's kind of like a mini contest but not quite, only if there's ones I do adore.
Do expect me to re-draw them or doodle them all over or some such.

A small talk about pricing your artYou're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!A small talk about pricing your art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
Let's be honest - if you're reading this then you probably want
Art Brut (Outsider art)The term outsider art was coined by art critic Roger Cardinal in 1972 as an English synonym for art brut (French: [aʁ bʁyt], "raw art" or "rough art"), a label created by French artist Jean Dubuffet to describe art created outside the boundaries of official culture; Dubuffet focused particularly on art by insane-asylum inmates.Art Brut (Outsider art)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
While Dubuffet's term is quite specific, the English term "outsider art" is often applied more broadly, to include certain self-taught or Naïve art makers who were never institutionalized. Typically, those labeled as outsider artists have little or no contact with the mainstream art world or art institutions. In many cases, their work is discovered only after their deaths. Often, outsider art illustrates extreme mental states, unconventional ideas, or elaborate fantasy worlds.
Outsider art has emerged as a successful art marketing category (an annual Outsider Art Fair has taken place in New York since 1993). The term is sometimes misapplied as a c
Bummed about Animal gamesbah D: Depessed'dBummed about Animal games3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was poking around and caught eye of Wolf-Haven and Wolfventure....
what the fuck...? How come there's so many video games where you play wolves and just wolves D| Yes, WQ is shit, but god damn, there are other cool animals out there! Even in the wolf family, can we explore a different kind of wolf? ;__; sigh. With names like that, I can't even desperately hope that WH and WV will ever have other species choices.
What the wolf is to animal video games gives me that same sick feeling in my stomach I got when I realized the mmorpg community had no shame in copying WoW/Everquest.
I don't even get it, why are so many people so happy to intentionally compete with each other? @_@ How about a hyena once and a while or a fossa or a jaguar. A dingo and a thylacine, a tanuki or the dhole, the bear or the wildebeest. Even a coyote would be a nice bit of variety at this point.
Excuse me now, I'm need to go sulk in the corner.
Found my Japanese friend missing for 10 yearsOk, Ryght, so, around 10 years ago I had a Japanese friend back in High School. He was over as an exchange student for a few months. When he arRyved, we anime lovers kinda heard the news and wanted to check him out.. cos me and my friends were kinda obsessed with Japanese stuff. Somtimes we would even speak gibberish Japanese to be more cool. So anyway I heard about this Japanese fella called Tomoo, he was a year below us and I really wanted to meet him but had no idea how... I have never made friends with a Japanese person before and was kinda nervous, so I just kinda brushed it off. Then one day.. my friend Ming somehow made friends with him and introduced Tomoo to me. I was shaking.. I was sweating.. I didn't know whether I should shake his hands or high 5 or hug or what... At the end I chose to bow, well thats what Japanese do right? So I bowed, I remember bowing and felt stupid after. IreallyhadnoideahowtogreetpeopleandIstilldon't.

pfffffftYou guys'd better be glad I like not being in jail because during my bi-monthly trip to Barnes & Noble, I came across some Funko Pony figures.pfffffft1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And one of the mini-Funko figures had been opened. Turned out it was the white Vinyl Scratch from the third picture up there.
Now being a pony fan I had a geek moment, with Mom standing right next to me. "It's Vinyl Scratch AHHH!" :icondummywooplz:
Zero fucks given.
But also being a lover of not-being-in-jail, I did what any sane, law-abiding pony fan would do.
stole that shit

Someday I will get more than two pieces of pony merch on my empty shelf. Eventually.

I alternate between a small Wacom Bamboo and a Cintiq. There are pros and cons for both of them, Bamboo is great for travelling with and drawing in bed while a Cintiq is a lot more work to set up but it makes drawing much faster because you are looking directly at the scr
Avoid getting ripped off by a client.As a freelancer most of your business takes place online, which makes it really easyAvoid getting ripped off by a client.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
for people to rip you off. How many times have we seen the following scenario's:
1- Someone offers a descent payment for your artwork but wants you to do an art-test first.
after the art-test you're being told you're not good enough. Later you find out that other people
got to do different art-test topics and also weren't good enough. The client clearly ripped people off to get free artwork.
2- Someone offers good money for your artwork. The sketch gets approved so you continue working. Right when it's done the total image suddenly becomes a great disappointment and the client ends up not paying you.
These were just 2 examples of situations that happen a lot to freelancers. There are many more like it.

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.

You do not have to read on any further from this point and please just don't if all you're going to do is make a stink about having read it in a comment. If you read it and regret it, that's your problem. I did say you didn't have to. This won't really be anything bad but if reading things that are negative triggers you to be angry/upset then don't. I mean it, don't.
I should have just not said anything.
Sorry. I'm not apologizing for saying anything but rather for the fact I often forget that 'people on the internet don't care'. -- Funny thing that, almost seems a bit backward compared to what I've actually read and seen. Then again, who knows, maybe I'm reading it wrong?
From now on if you want to read anything I write, go to Tumblr.
No one pays attention there, so I'll post there or on a private blog where no one can read it.
If you have me on Skype we'll talk there.

Ex iphonisThe other day I was reading an article, where some celebrity-type of person – and for the love of guns, can't remember who it was – started profusely gushing how culture is being buried under an avalanche of technology-inspired neurosis', how personal communication, art, deep thought and creativity is drowned in the electric hiss of our Facebook statuses. How the "real things" become unimportant.Ex iphonis2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The tone of the article was preacher-like and nauseous. And even though I generally tended to follow the same thought process, something about it was off-putting, and I started to think about it in more focus.
And realized how this line of thinking is wrong.
The real problem is the human trait to think of the past in a far more idealized manner than we think about the present. It has to do with the way our brain functions, I guess – I'm no neuroscientist, but the information which I possess, points me to the fact that our mind cannot hold to the whole detailed picture o
Concerning Points to USD [added info]I just want to sort of explain this because it's sort of a pet peeve of mine when I see it around lol.Concerning Points to USD [added info]2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are TWO point + USD equivalents.
Not just one.
80 = $1.00 ONLY IF:
-You are BUYING POINTS or if you are using points to buy/sell PRINTS or other dA MERCHANDISE.
100 = $1.00 ONLY IF:
-You are turning points into USD via PREMIUM DOWNLOAD or COMMISSIONS WIDGET.
Why is this?
-deviantART will ALWAYS take a 20% cut out of whatever you RECEIVE whenever you use dA to process anything that has to do with points going into USD or vice versa.
You feel that 20% whenever you buy points or a print or anything else with USD, because you're only getting 80points per dollar.
And if you look for yourself, on your commissions widget or in the premium download options, 100points = $1.00 to make up for that 20% lost by dA taking its cut.
Prints, Merchandise, Buying Points ---> 80 = $1.00
Commissions Widget, Premium Download --->
