Deer's Commission Menu!

1) Sketch commissions are OPEN 0/5 slots 2) Portrait/bust commissions are OPEN 0/2 slots 3) Digital painting commissions are OPEN 0/1 slot ______________________________________________________________________________________________ Before proceeding, please read this FAQ. Q: What am I paying for? A: I'd like to make it very clear that you aren't just paying for my digital file. My pricing is determined by the hours that I spend on average to draw and paint the work that you have ordered. You are paying me to insert you into my schedule and apply the years of art practice I have. Each hour you commission me to work would cost about $12.

Hi.

Hi.

Hello to everybody reading this. I've been totally inactive for the past few months because I was busy with portfolios for college. Maybe I'll get in this year. Who knows. *shrug* Anyways, I'm back. Now that portfolios are over I've been wasting my life away in the Borderlands, hehe. Anyone at 72 wanna play OP3 Digistruct peak with me? :P sigh... I'm ready to start working again. I owe a lot of art to people here, so don't think I've forgotten. I don't know where I want to go with this dA profile. I want to put up more of my other artwork. I don't like ponies much anymore. Don't have a lot of viewership. If I switch to non-pony stuff, I th

I have an art blog.

I don't update it too often, but all the stuff there has nothing to do with ponies. Surprisingly, they don't run my life. Cx It's mostly life drawings (naked people) and, if I ever get into animation, I'll put characters and layouts etc etc My work isn't particularly pretty like the colourful, detailed pieces you'd find with people who study illustration, and a lot of the time, my drawings are about as hit-and-miss as sports photography. My work isn't animated. And it doesn't have that magical appeal that some other artists are able to achieve. Sometimes, when I do get a decent drawing, it's, well, fairly decent. I guess I... I have a lot of

Guys. Like seriously. OMD. I was at Walmart at 7 am the day it was released. And sdfge. I need some people to play with. My Friend Code is 4184-2128-5507! Anybody reading this may feel free to just add me up. Cx IN OTHER NEWS my main computer rig with all the expensive parts is down again and I have lost all of my important files :D Also, I absolutely despise my college program and I can't bring myself to finish the assignments. :P I'm considering re-thinking my career path. But that's not important! What's important is that I catch some new Pokémon and train up a new team to fight you guys with. I just hope that someday soon I can go thr

i live an uneventful life. talk to me

Let me start off by thanking everybody who's always commenting on my journals and noting me and texting me when I feel like ranting in my journals. Means a lot. Y'all know who you are. <3 I promise that your kindness will come back to bite you in the culo one of these days. Also thanks to all the new watchers. I'm glad and slightly appalled that you're interested in the, uh, the stuff I upload on this website. I don't really like drawing, err, miniature horses that much anymore. ._. I know I have commissions to do, and they areeeee underway. I'm just saying. The fandom has changed since I last opted into it back in 2011. Not quite sure h

Tumblr, anyone? I'll follow back!

I have a lot of comments and notes to get back to. ._. Well then! I decided to be a bit more active on my Tumblr blog. If you'd like to see more of the stuff that I do aside from ponies, be sure to check it out! I plan on putting more of my serious (human) artwork there as well as any other random tidbits about my life that I might find to be interesting to share. Some of my photography will also be going up there whenever I find the time to sort through the thousands of snapshots which now call my SD card their comfy little home. Oh yeah, here it is, lawl.

Expect to be Disappointed.

Disappointment is a funny thing... I'm gonna put all of the requests I recently got from you guys on hold! Surely, I'll get back to them, but right now my priority is to finish a commission I'm working on right now - my first commission! o: I've seen a lot of people charge like, over twenty-five bucks for some badly composed or flat image, but I'll do my best to get this one right, compose it properly, and try to light it beautifully so that it's worth the money paid. "Work with me. Tell me all the details you can. I'll give you constant updates as I make progress on your commission, and I'll be sure that you're happy with the final product.

I want to be an animator. Or...

Well first, thank you to the recent wave of new watchers I obtained from my Trixie piece. I'll make more stuff soon Cx Now then... I've been preparing to get into the  oh-so  *prestigious* animation program being offered at Sheridan College in Oakville. Either that, or the one at Seneca College. Either one is fine, but I'd rather go to Sheridan. Portfolios are due in February, but I know I'm not ready yet. Not remotely ready. I haven't been doing a spectacular job in school, either - my credits are in peril because of one month I spent having some sort of insomnia issues. So it's a balance. A very delicate one. I need to get my marks up to
