Making $$ - recommendations?For those who don't know, a lot has happened in the many months I've been gone.
First and foremost, I graduated high school and moved out this year. I live with my boyfriend of two years but I most definitely save up enough money for moving out. Which was a major mistake on my end, but no one gave me any advice; I was excited and ready to "adult".. or so I thought.
Anyways, I have a full time job and was actually just promoted. I'm also a tattoo apprentice, hopefully soon I will be tattooing by the beginning of next year... I just want to be at a place where I can be making art for a living, or for a good chunk of it.
Financially, I've been VERY stressed and I'm looking for ways to making art and money again. My question is what are some of the best ways that you fellow deviants/artists/adults have been making much needed money either online or in the real world? I have a few different paths started that could help me out but I was curious if anyone can share their experien
I have returnedAfter maybe a year or so of a hiatus, I'm somewhat back?
I want to be drawing more than dogs and I have been outside of DA, go to my Instagram (@ desert_moose) or Facebook (Ellie Kosto) if ya wanna see some of that.
I may even post some because why not??
Anyways, commissions will open up again soon, I'd be happy to draw some OC's then. Give me some time to get back into this website and I'll be back into the swing of things.
it's obvious i'm no longer on this siteim becoming more active on instagram

the new and improved alaskassFor those who haven't gotten the memo yet; I'm focused on working towards a portfolio- meaning I want to show the best of my artistic capabilities, and call me lame but drawing furries only can get me so far.
I want to become a tattoo artist, and before I get myself settled into that career I want to explore and play with as many art mediums, styles etc.
Not only does this look nice in my portfolio, it's fucking fun.
SO before you guys start spamming me with questions asking why I haven't done commissions, well it's because my computer I used to work on no longer works for that purpose. My computer now is completely for school work, yay.
I still would really like to find a way to work on your commissions, I just don't know how to at the moment
SO if someone really wants a refund, let me know please, I'm sorry I wont have them done any time soon but I really do want to get them done when I have the chance to.

importantish? updates and junkI'm sorry for the inactivity - this summer was really eventful for me, and school starts this Friday.
I promise to finish up my to-do list this week so I don't blow it off till my next break, in fact I sketched most of them so they should all be done soon.
After I finish up my to-do list, I think I'm going to actually take a break from drawing furries. I honestly feel that I could be spending my time working on art that can benefit me, the only beneficial thing with drawing dogs is internet furry fame + money, and I'm not looking for that right now?
It's really hard to explain what's going on in my mind, being on deviantart stresses me out in a way? It's over run with copycat 13 year olds and whiny "I get what I want" adults; and I don't enjoy the atmosphere?
Sure of course, I'm going to be drawing dogs here and there, but I really need to focus on school because that is way more beneficial/important.
I'm not gone for good either, there will just be more art that I actually enjoy makin

Offer to Co-Own Cinnas! Org. Cinna design and MYO!I have two wonderful cinna's, which I love so very much, but I don't use them as much as I would like.
After some time of thinking I'm finally ready to share my babes with some other people.
I'm going to search through both the offers and people, if you offer a lot but you have a record of being untrustworthy or problematic- I'm not interested.
I do have some simple rules though:
- use the character
- help build a background/story for the character
- commission art of the character and use it
- roleplay with the character
You CAN NOT (without permission or discussion)
- sell or trade the character
- alter the design/appearance of the character
- claim full ownership of the character
If you are interested, I'm mainly looking for money, but I could also use more art!
There is no deadline to offer, I'll give it some time but if I see a good offer from a good person I'm taking
I need a new computer-commission slots still open!
I am in need of money - I'm not worried about my car anymore because I can't drive it yet and my parents are making no effort to get me behind the wheel.
So NOW I'm saving up for a new laptop, this laptop currently is crashing a lot, the battery has a short life and the track pad doesn't work. (It's been like this for awhile but since I can still do stuff on it I never bothered to upgrade.) This computer has given me multiple scares lately, it doesn't run as fast as it used to even after I cleaned everything up.
My goal is to save about $700-$800, I'm not set on a brand or model, but from looking online most laptops that fit my requirements and needs are in this price range.
Although I would kill to have a Razor Blade like damn
Also, I don't think I'm going to buy it ASAP, maybe when Christmas comes around and everyone has insane deals~

Make deviantArt a fucking better place!!! Part 1Okay, guys,
I think I need to be hard. I am more than 9 years an deviant here on dA. This is good for me to compare the past and now. And maybe have a clue how dA will be in the future.
I have the feeling dA is getting more and more heartless. And I am not the only one. I set up a little poll, and the few who took part gave me this:
The first years I was here, everything here was great! Great artists, nice people who you could talk to (and who talked with you, TOO!), a lot of fun with the community, reaction on my work, reactions on what I wrote for you, feedback like comments and faves and so on. But this has changed extremly. I feel lonely here most of the time. I have no Fun being part of this community anymore. (And I think may have the same opinion, as many left the community)
But what can we do?
This is why I will write some journals, all about this topic. I will tell you my point of few, and

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:
1. A detailed literary analysis and trope driven deconstruction of H
