What are adoptables?
The 'adoptables' you are seeing in this group are mostly animal, hybrid and human designs artists use as personas or characters. They have no physical presence. They are mainly artistic designs of all sorts sold for points (a strictly dA resource), trade or real cash.
How do I sell them? What are the rules for adoptables?
The designs sold are like selling pieces of artwork - they have to be one of a kind and not a copy of someone else's design. If you sell a design that is (or is almost like) somebody else's design, you can get banned from dA for art theft.
To sell an adoptable, it has to be a design you made that you are willing to sell to someone else for the trade of your choice. You can trade it for one of their adoptables, sell it to them for points/money or even give it away for free. You may do this as long as you m
The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon"I have a question about the extreme price."The Pricing-Guilt Phenomenon1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is a message I recently got regarding a listing of my latest Baby Jackalope art doll on Etsy.
That was the extent of the message. No please or thank you, no actual question stated besides the inferred comment that the price of my artwork is a gouge.
I realized that although the tone of the message was rather rude, it's a question artists get asked all the time and an opportunity for me to stand up for artists without sending an equally rude reply to the likes of "If you do not like the pricing of my original art, you can go to Hallmark and buy a cheap stuffed bear made by the thousands using near slave-labour in China". I do not feel that anyone should be obligated to justify why and how the pricing of their craft translates into how much grocery money they end up with at the end of the week, but this might be helpful or at least reassuring for those of us who

See you at Anime Destiny!Hey guys!See you at Anime Destiny!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is will be the last con of the year for me, and what better way to end it than at the con held by my very own university I'll be at the annual Anime Destiny convention this November 16 at the Clark Kerr Conference Center at UC Berkeley, CA. As usual, I'll be in the Artist Alley with prints and books.
This year the Artist Alley will be in the Krutch Theatre due to construction of the usual location. Anime Destiny is a small con, but it's also one of my favorites because I get to see a lot of my old Berkeley friends there, and meet news ones as well. If you live in the bay area, come by and hang out!

It's a funny story! So let's not go for gloom and doom colours, keep in a Disney style would be another boost. I'd also like it if it contains characters like Ahadi, since it's about Mufasa, Scar/Taka AND Ahadi.

First of all, hope everyone's been well and gearing up for the Christmas season! Apologies for having been a tad absent. I've been breaking my back over uni stuff plus I was carried away by a side art project I was having. Which leads on to the second thing. I've been waiting for my other art thing to be up and running ish until I introduced it to you guys. Here it is!
I've been developing a mini-world around a species called the Oot. They're mainly a species for adoptables. My account is:

They are a 6-legged creature who is either of a Normal type or a Nature type. The Nature types are born from Eggoots. Normal types are bred from two Oots. They can also be evolved to be an Ootak.

It's the best way to explain EXACTLY what is going on right now if you don't understand business. If you sell certain types of art online this concerns YOU (nomatter where you live).

It -seriously- concerns me why very few people on DA are not freaking out about the new EU VAT law that is starting on Jan 1st. I'm an artist, not particularly biz minded but I do make my living from selling my art as a freelancer/sole trader of creative services and goods. Many of you here will do so too.

Woodbaby SearchWhile a Renaissance Fair this past summer, I spied with my little eye a man with a demon on his shoulder. A freaky, bird-demon. Thanks to a metal plate and control rod, the puppet could turn its head to observe passing attendees. It was adorable and terrifying at the same time.Woodbaby Search1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So naturally I want one.
An online search revealed the concept of "Woodbabies", custom-made puppets meant to ride on a user's shoulder. I thought having a Silver Quill woodbaby would be a nice way to stand out at the next convention.
Only problem is that the only seller I could locate, A Midsummer Knight's Dream has been yanking me around. I can only assume they either don't have the time to do a special order, or just aren't interested. So I turn to my fellow internet voyagers to see if someone out there knows of a woodbaby seller who might be able to make a mini Silver Quill.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Requests openHai guys!Requests open1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen a few artists do this (eg. kohu-arts <-- awesome awesome artist) and I thought wow what a great idea! There are many times when I want to try new styles and techniques, but didn't feel like drawing canon or my OCs. And so I end up not drawing anything. As such, when inspiration does hit, I wouldn't mind having a handy list of characters that I could draw. So what I'm really saying is, FREE ART FOR YOU! Yay!
The catch is you pretty much have no control whether I end up picking you, which characters I draw, age of your character, which style (ie. sketch, chibi, weird unconventional sketching colouring and shading, etc) or when I draw it. I might pick out your character months down the track. It might end up looking like this http://fav.me/d7kq8ob or this http://fav.me/d63l4rk O.O There's a possibility that it may not be a full picture. I'll draw a request when I feel like it, basically, and if I have some spare time.

The Disney Vault -The Kimba/ Lion King controversyAlrighty, lets get down to business *rolls up sleeves*.The Disney Vault -The Kimba/ Lion King controversy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a really big topic people are extremely passionate about. For those who don't know, when the Lion King was released it was the highest grossing animated picture at the time. Alas, everyone knows that the brighter the picture the darker the negative and with great success there was great backlash (as well as a billion of horrid Lion King OCs). The backlash concerned a old franchise named 'Kimba the White Lion', and the fans of said series claimed that 'The Lion King' was a rip off of Osamu Tezuka's 'Kimba the White Lion'.
Osamu Tezuka is considered the 'God of Manga' and one of the pioneers of the anime style. So he obviously has a huge fanbase and a formidable army against Lion King's massive fanbase. There was a lot of blood shed, a lot of finger pointing and name calling...It was absolutely beautiful.
Now I am not a rabid fan of 'The Lion King'. I do love the movie don't get me wrong, but if theres something wrong in the

Oh the irony!
You did this on your previous (not to mention banned) account as well. You likes to dodge questions and fish for sympathy, anything to get people off your case when you know that what you doing is shady or wrong. In the past, you lied about having a heart condition (and used that to garner sympathy from people so that they'd stop accusing you of art theft), you lied about getting permission from the original artists of works to post them in your Gallery (you've been confronted several times by several unhappy artists), and you've made up stories about how you're unable to take down the stolen art (I don't know h
