You can always check the progress of your commission/trade/etc by going here:
***NOTE most of the traditional examples are VERY OLD. I have improved significantly on many of these options. Most of the horse examples are really old as well, I no longer use that style because I have SAI. New horse examples can be found in my gallery.
I CAN NOW MAKE T-SHIRTS OR STICKERS WITH YOUR COMMISSION ON THEM! PLEASE NOTE FOR DETAILS!
I will NOT do:
NSFW MALE anthros (females are fine), things entirely or almost entirely covered with feathers, things entirely or almost entirely covered with scales, humans (unless it's for a horse/tokota piece or a traditional female bust), gorey things (will do bloody, but won't do guts), MLP

~Point Commissions PERMANENTLY OPEN~So I did a trial run of a point commission and it went really well. Not only that, but it was a ton of fun. I really want to do more, so here I am opening up point commissions.~Point Commissions PERMANENTLY OPEN~2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Besides that, I really need the points. I want to become a premium member, mostly so that I can get real critiques on my artwork.
Just a few things you need to know.
I WON'T draw the following for commissions:
-Yaoi/yuri (I will draw softer versions, just not hard, overly sexual types)
-Anything that would require a mature content warning
I will draw most anything else.
On the commissions, you will always send the points over AFTER I finish your commission and I submit it. That way if something comes up and it will be delayed, you haven't given me points with no prospect of art in return for a while.

"AKitD" Design Contest! CLOSED!!!Now it's official. The "A Knife in the Dark" Design a God Contest has officially come to an end."AKitD" Design Contest! CLOSED!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I must say, it was a huge success. lol
I admit, I didn't expect this many entries. And man, you people are really spoiling me. Not only did I get awesome designs, no, you also put alot of effort into backgroundstories or general information. I am stunned.
And I am going to have a hell of trouble to judge this. I am afraid judging this contest is taking some more time (not only due to the difficulty but also lack of time on my side due to workload).
I hope to be able to present the winners as late as New Year next year.
But you are going to see it once I am done.

Anthro vs Furry
A lingering question throughout the "Anthro" community
This has been a long drawn out discussion throughout the "Anthro" and "Furry" community. So I would like to reach out to the community directly to get your thoughts and opinions before I divulge into an article that will address this very thing (:. I am interested in the community's response! So..

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.
Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed EdgeHello, everybody! I'm renonevada. For those that don't know, one of my jobs here at deviantART HQ is as quality control for prints. I look at every print before it is purchased for the first time to make sure that it will print properly. Some of the things I look out for are copyright infringement, cropping, pixelation, and to make sure it doesn't violate other policies, such as being too pornographic.Prints Tips: Cropping and the Bleed Edge2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I plan on making a series of journals explaining how to make sure your prints will be approved when they get to me. I know that I'm excited to see the notification letting me know a print has been sold and I want to do what I can to make sure you all see it, as well.
For this journal, I want to speak about Cropping and the Bleed Edge.
This is hands down the number 1 reason why I am forced to reject a print, which in turn will cancel a sale. Because of this, I have tried to make this journal as detailed as possible.
The Bleed Edge is the v

Pet CPR is not nearly as common knowledge as it should be. You may think you'll never actually need to know how to do this. But I can tell you; it happens. Cause it happened to me.
This is a picture of my late dog, a great dane named Tiger. (cropped out my mom who's in the picture.) Tiger died at the age of only 2, of a heart attack (heart flaw), on my living room floor one day when I was alone home 3 years ago.
My mother, who is a nurse assistant had literally left the house only 10 minutes previously to go shopping. One minute, my happy boy was his fine, happy, laid back self. The next thing I know, he's laying unresponsive on the floor. And I panic.
I called my mom who instructed me on how to do CPR over the phone while she was hurrying home. But I was too

What is Anthro?Too many people has the wrong idea about what does "Anthro" mean... even before deviantART created a whole gallery devoted to this special kind of art, there are still too many doubts about this category, and maybe that explains many of the mistakes when uploading pictures, images or drawings to our section.What is Anthro?7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Even when I was still not the Anthro Gallery Director , I tried to explain this concept in a journal entry but couldn't manage to make it clear, and now I think it's the perfect chance for a new attempt. ^___^ To start with, let's take a look at two definitions that may help us.
Anthro: a synonym for anthropomorphism in the furry fandom.
Anthropomorphism is the attribution of uniquely human characteristics and qualities to nonhuman beings, inanimate objects, or natural or supernatural phenomena (...)

Pro-Tips For Being Around CostumersMany people wear costumes to conventions or for display on youtube and such as much for their own enjoyment as for the entertainment of others. Costumers like making others happy by displaying their skills for other's amusement. However, sometimes, people don't know how to treat those in costume, and sometimes people are downright disrespectful. Here are a few tips for how to behave around costumers:Pro-Tips For Being Around Costumers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Do not grab or pull things on another person's costume. Yanking on capes, bandoleers, belt pouches, wings, wigs, what-have-you is not only annoying, but can damage something that took a lot of time, effort and money to make.
Think before you speak. Even if a costume isn't the best, its maker likely put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into it. Everyone starts off as a novice costumer. In addition, if a person isn't the proper body type for the character they're recreating, and that bothers you keep rude comme

Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHelloLove of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOS3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, kiriban (766 666) is VERY close!
At second, Brno's females, Alex and Clair, are in heat now. I went to the ZOO to take some photos - because of mating season, wolves were very excited and active. I had a great chance to watch their fantastic and natural behavior, which included gentle touches, aggresivity (not between alphas and beta, but younger wolves were somehow excited) and mating itself. It was just incredible to observe so intimate moments of the lives of wolves. Thanks to winter, I was totally alone with them - only me and wolves. I would like to share some shots I took - sorry for lower quality, the weather was cloudy and as you can imagine, wolves were moving a lot. Although I took some photos of mating itself, I do not want to post such shots. Not to offend some of my watchers (mating and also eating are absolutely natural for animals ) but to somehow respect privacy of the wolves
Thank you for every it would help me to share this

Coming outSo, today, I came out to my grandma as "bisexual" (even though I'm pansexual, she would understand the term bisexual more, so I just used that) and she totally accepts me. The only thing that she has an issue with is that she doesn't want me to get bullied for it. So, this is really great! She doesn't care that I like girls and guys.Coming out1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The problem is... I only used that as practice for coming out as transgendered.
I have no idea how she'd react. She told me that she didn't want to tell my grandpa about the bisexual thing. She said she didn't know how he would react, but we both knew for a fact that he wouldn't be angry about it. More.. sad. And she just doesn't want any extra stress on him.
Now, if I tell her that I need hormone therapy because I'm transgendered, we would HAVE to tell my grandpa and I don't know if I can do that. I mean, they know I was never girly from the start and that my parents forced it upon me when I was little, but I don't know how to come out to them.
