Should I open up commissions again, after I complete the 2 I owe? o_o I'm not sure... Bah. And I think I would only make certain ones available too.... Like the crayon ones or something... Is there any interest? :P

CALLING ALL CRAYOLA ARTISTS !

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 3, 2013, 9:36 PM
CommissionEtsyYouTube

Hey guys! I have a really important entry today!

This is for all you guys who know how to use Crayola products to create artwork.
In other words, if you will not use Crayola products, do not bother to read below.

If any of you want to join a charity to help children get art supplies, this is your time to shine. :)

KiaraJoy is creating an artbook called "Inspirations." She is collecting a bunch of artists here on DA to participate in the artbook. These artbooks will be sold and the proceeds will go towards the purchase of Crayola art supplies. The supplies will be sent to kids who wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity or equipment to become involved in the arts.

If you join this cause you will be able to get your own free copy of the book once it is published, you just need to pay for shipping to your home.

Please help a gal out! :) The more help the better! A lot of you guys say I inspire you, so it's time to help inspire others! ^^

You can use watercolors, colored pencils, crayons, as long as they are the Crayola brand, then you're good to go!

Inspire children by showing them what an artist can do with supplies "for kids!" ;3

:star: FOR MORE INFO GO TO: inspirationsartbook.deviantart…
:star: Please note KiaraJoy If you're interested in joining the cause!
:star: Be sure to check out updates ! They can be found at:  InspirationsArtbook

Artwork Sensitivity

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 17, 2012, 9:02 PM
CommissionEtsyYouTube

Hi guys, I thought I'd make a journal where we could have a discussion around something that baffles me! The topic of the day is artwork sensitivity. Keep in mind, criticism is not the same as insulting someone, the intent is to be helpful and help the artist grow.

I understand that some people are sensitive when it comes to their artwork. They do not like their artwork to be criticized, and if it is, they are very offended. I also understand that some people do not WANT any sort of criticism, a common excuse for this is that they do art for fun and not take it seriously (so be nice or GTFO essentially). However, the kind of people I'm talking about are the ones who take the criticisms to heart, regardless of "doing art for fun" or "taking it seriously."

Let's say someone just made a comment that had many compliments in it and had a helpful suggestion at the end. To be very clear, the comment to the artist was very nice, friendly, and respectful. Here are types of responses I would associate with "artwork sensitivity":

"*checks criticizer's DA page* Well. you're not even an artist so I don't have to listen to you!"

"*checks criticizer's DA page* I'm a better artist than you, what do you know!"

"I don't want to hear any bad feedback!"

Usually these are followed by a lengthy message attacking the criticizer and "defending themselves."

So I guess part of my question is, do you consider art a part of yourself? Does a picture you create on paper, when criticized, make you feel like you, yourself is criticized on a deeper level? Do you guys find polite criticism helpful in improving your art?

My opinion:

I feel like it's unreasonable to not want to be critiqued in any fashion. If you put your art on the internet you are making yourself available to many kinds of opinions, thoughts, insults, critiques, whatever... It's like saying that you have a TV show and don't want to hear any negative feedback from the public. lol In the U.S. we have a thing called freedom of speech...but I find many Americans don't want to hear anything that doesn't bode with their own thoughts or feelings. And yet, those same Americans are opinionated towards others and do the same thing that they hate being done to them.

I don't feel like my artwork is a part of me. If someone were to tell me a picture I drew was awful, I could not care in the slightest. If someone were to suggest a technique or give advice... I would listen to it. If someone told me a body part was messed up I would tell them I agree (if I do), and if I don't I would ask them to explain their thoughts further so I could understand what they mean.

I think the most important thing to keep in mind is that, you do not have to be an artist to see something wrong with a picture. Anyone on this planet that has functioning eyes has the right to criticize art. You do not need to be able to MAKE art to SEE that there is a problem with something that is drawn. Just by being able to see people's faces in every day life you have the qualifications to point out that a portrait does NOT look right.

I wouldn't want to live in a world where people couldn't be honest with one another. I would hate for people to lie and tell me something looks good when they think it doesn't. I want people to tell me how to improve. I would not want to be in a world where everyone would be forced to be "kind" in response to varying stimuli. I like having a world where there are differences of opinion and different thoughts and suggestions. I like knowing that there are different ways that things could be or things I could do to change what will become.  


Anyway, what do you guys think? I'm like super interested in getting other's opinions! :)


OH! And this is something that has been on my mind.  A friend of mine was drunk one night and told me something that I'm not sure she would have told me if she were sober... Said friend has bad self esteem about her artwork and little following on DA. She said her artwork sucks and that nobody cares about her on DA. I said even if she had a large following she probably would still feel poorly about her artwork because that is a driving force behind many artists, getting better and improving themselves. Keep in mind I've known her for years and she has always had poor self esteem regardless of all the praise toward her art she has received. So she said that no, she just wants a large group of people following her and she'd feel better toward her artwork.

Depending on how many people "follow" you or "favorite" your artwork, does that effect how you, yourself feel toward your own work?

Suggestion Poll #4 What should I draw?

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 6, 2012, 4:47 PM
CommissionEtsyYouTube

Hey guys.

I've mentioned before that I put up videos on my youtube where I ask my viewers what I should draw next. I happen to have a new one up right now!

You can find it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=AArY1U…

All you need to do is write a suggestion within that youtube video which follows my rules:

Information I need:
Name of Character, name of game or show, what outfit (provided there is more than one).

Rules:
1) One suggestion per person.
2) Character must be from a Video Game or Cartoon.
3) Only one character per picture.


Keep in mind that if you post a suggestion anywhere else (DA, FB, etc.) I will not include your suggestion in the polls I'm making. Respond with the suggestion inside of the Youtube Video or it will be ignored. It's too difficult to keep track of the suggestions if they're scattered in between websites, so I'm strict about it.

Once I stop taking suggestions I'll make the polls which you guys can vote in. I will draw the winning suggestion/request. :)

Keep in mind that this promotion is to help get my youtube started so don't expect me to post up requests/suggestions here on DA like i do on youtube. x3 If you want to request/suggest future pictures you'll have to do it in my youtube videos which are labeled as "Suggestion Polls." I do some gaming and lots of art on my channel, stop by if you're interested or just want to suggest things! XD But remember they're time sensitive so if you post after I close the suggestion poll I will totally ignore it when I put up a new suggestion video.

Hi everyone! Long time no journal update...lol I figured I better make a new one. Last one was from MONTHS AGOOOOooooo...

So I do have the internet now (obviously) XD and I've been slowly uploading art as it coincides with my Youtube Channel. Soooo, I guess don't expect new art to be uploaded the way it was uploaded before. It seems to just be a weekly pic nowadays.

Hmmm...anything new with you guys? XD


Also! I do Let's Plays and Art on my Youtube channel which you can view by clicking the Lemi's Youtube icon above! If you stop by don't forget to leave a message. I always like it when people say hello.  ^^

Moving, no internet. (Heartbreak)

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 13, 2012, 7:00 PM
CommissionEtsyYouTube

Long time no chat! I have moved my desktop and until I get my internet installed it doesn't look good for uploading new deviations. Everything should work out by the 25th provided some unforseen problem doesn't surface with my internet installation. I miss the internet already....

@_@ How will I pay my bills!?

How will I upload new youtube videos? D:

How will I scan more pictures? Wait...how WILL I scan more pictures... I need a scanner... ............... *facepalm*

Moving is terrible. I just keep realizing I need more and more things. @_@ Oh well, I guess I can use my parent's scanner every now and then and scan in bulk...haha. @_@

Side note: I am still accepting commissions but due to the internet situation. don't expect your image to be uploaded before the 25th.

Wish me luckkkkk!

I am so excited you guys! After next week I will finally be done with my student teaching! I cannot begin to describe how happy I feel that I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!

The past 4 months have been SO stressful and the workload has been IMMENSE. I have only 8 more papers to write. :3 Yes, only 8. If that tells you anything about this semester. x__x

I also have my final observation this Thursday! :) It's a math lesson.

Oh gosh you guys I cannot wait for the holidays! I am so looking forward to spending time with family and friends. I'm also looking forward to working on my house and hopefully finishing up the renovations so I can move in. ^_^ 2012 will be so exciting!

I will also be working really hard on my commissions once January hits so I can get them all finished up! I really hate making you guys wait so long for results. As always, I have been working on your commissions but it has come to a stop this week because of the final 8 papers being due. After next week it will be smooth sailing with commissions. I will update my youtube with videos during this time as well. ^^

8 More days of student teaching~! 10 More days until break!

Oh my gosh, I will have my Masters and my Tricertification... :3 I cannot believe I will be done with school, I've been working toward this for so long. XD;

WISH ME LUCK! *runs off to work on papers*

Hey guys. Just figured I should update my journal on here with what has been happening recently.

Power went out in my area of NY for several days. We recently got power back though, so I'm pretty happy about that. It was so cold with the power being out. >< I cannot believe it snowed so much, it's only late October! We had to have gotten more than a foot..

Anyways, I'm at my second student teaching placement. I'm more than half way done with student teaching, so I'm very excited about that.. Umm.. What else... :< I have so much homework... my college keeps changing what we have to do for our Masters program and.. just.. it's really awful... Bah. Oh well. :(

Anyways, Venus beat Jupiter in my poll the other day. So up next will be a crayon Sailor Venus. :3 After I get my commissions finished of course. :X

Hi guys. :3

My brother had his wedding recently and I got to be a brides maid. ^^ It was very fun. Congratulations to him and his wife! She is such a sweetheart, I love her and I'm so happy she is part of our family. :)))))

In other news, I started my student teaching and that is well under way. I am about halfway through my first placement. I will be done at the end of the year in December. I am excited to be finished with school for a while. @_@ Seems like it cannot get here fast enough though.

Um, working on commissions this weekend. @_@ It's certainly taking forever to get anything done lately. I barely have enough time to do my homework...

Anyways, I was tagged!

Tagged by EnigmaticWarrior

On to the questions asked me:

No. Really, no. x_x

9.) Music that gets you pumped up?

10.) If you can turn one thing into reality, what would it be and why?
Having an education in art. I think I'd enjoy that.

11.) Is this random or what?
Totally. :P

-------
My questions I will ask:
1.) What age did you start drawing?
2.) How long have you been drawing for?
3.) What types of obstacles have you overcome with your art?
4.) Are your parents supportive of your art?
5.) Listen to music while drawing?
6.) I wonder what happened to Bob Ross' TV show...do you know? :(
7.) Is watching other artists work boring to you?
8.) Dark (mute colors/black and white) or colorful (think rainbows!)?
9.) Favorite item to use when doing artwork?
10.) Which is easier, digital or traditional art?

Hurricane Irene and Outages

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 31, 2011, 11:13 AM
CommissionEtsyYouTube

Hey everyone. :( I'm writing this entry from a friend's house. I've been without power since the Hurricane hit us late last week. Um... NYSEG (where we get power from) is estimating that we will get our power back by this Friday... so Hopefully that will be the case. It seems that there are outages in the entire area, not just my town. Plus, companies seem to be turning off the power to work on other people's power...so lights are always on and off. :(

In other news, my home wasn't damaged by the Hurricane, there was just a lot of trees down in the road and damaged power lines. Some people's houses were hit, or close to being hit, by fallen trees. This part of NY seems to be fine...

My parent's house in CT? XD Totally different issue. My dad might as well have been a sea faring captain, his house on the water was more like a boating vessel. Very scary! Enhanced scary comes with not having flood insurance. But I guess that is a story for another day! BUT OMG. I cannot believe waves went over 3 story houses... that is so crazy! And like, the main street was like a river, easily tossing furniture and chunks of houses out to sea....

Random:
I worked on commissions by candlelight this week lol...omg, not fun. XD Sometimes the flame will start randomly jumping around and it totally messes with your eyes! And when you draw, the shadow of your hand blocks part of the picture! So frustratinggg~!

Anyways you guys, I'm gonna try to charge my laptop before I go home so maybe I can work on some digital commissions too during the outage. @_@ Twas playing pokemon...3DS died! T_T </3 My hopes and dreams went with it. I'M NEVER GOING TO BE A POKEMON MASTER DURING THIS OUTAGE! T_____T

I just finished my summer grad classes! :3 I had so much work for those classes, I'm so happy it's all done!

So then I settled down and started working on my commissions... hours later...power goes out! D: Really? Really.

T_T I was working on a digital one....I was so sad! I lost a few cats, a window, and a shirt. XD NoOOoo! Oh well... I'll have to do it over again. :B

I think I might need to start focusing on one commission at a time... :B That way things get done sooner.... I do a bit here and there for all of them so they're all underway. XD; But this shows no results! Oh well, one of them is almost done so you'll see it soon. XD It's a real cute one toooo~!


New YouTube Videos by LemiaCrescent


Also! You guys know I have a youtube account now. Is there anything you guys would like to specifically see me do on there? Once I get my commissions all sorted out I'm planning on doing a bunch of video game pictures... Other than that, I'm not sure what to do! A friend of mine suggested I do a tutorial video in real time...one for how to draw things..or something.  I dunno. Let me know what floats your boat. :3

:bulletpink: Commissions are open.

:bulletpink: Etsy still empty. I'll probably put up some stuff in August.

:bulletpink: Youtube account is all set up with some videos up on it. lol AWKWARD VIDEOS!

So I'm finishing up my 3 grad classes I've been taking this summer. I only have 2 weeks left... if I can survive that long. You wouldn't believe how much work I have to do. :( All 3 classes are accelerated and one lady assigns an intolerable amount of work.

With that said, I'll be working really hard on commissions once my classes finish. I've been working very slowly on each of them but you won't see any real results till August. :( I might be able to get some of the simpler ones done before then...we'll see though. TWO MORE WEEKS TILL FREEDOM! Omggggggggggggg.

Tomorrow is my second CST. @_@ It's my final state mandated test for my teaching certification..wish me luckkkk. :B

I'm so close to finishing my Tricertification and getting my Masters........

Alright! Ummm... I tried to make simple buttons up top for my general account information. lol HOPEFULLY IT WORKS....

:bulletpink:Commissions are open.

:bulletpink:Etsy is currently empty until I get some free time.

:bulletpink: Youtube...I set up an account but am currently waiting until I get my webcam in the mail to do other things.

HM! Hopefully it'll be more eye catching than before... I get a lot of notes about where people can find my commission information. :3 I hope this helps.

Important- Commissions VS Requests
:orange: I take commissions (provided that they are open at the time of inquiry).  A commission is artwork you purchase.
:orange: I do not take requests. A request is asking for free artwork.


:star:Colored Traditional Image:star:
Hand-colored picture of one character in traditional media (copic marker) w/o background - $100

Old 2008 Lemi Pic Remake by LemiaCrescent
:pointr: Additional characters in same image is an extra $50 per character. If there are more than 3 characters in a single image, each additional character is full price.
Narcissism by LemiaCrescent
:pointr:If you request something HIGHLY detailed there is an additional charge because it takes me MUCH longer to complete these types of commissions. Detail prices range from $25-50 depending upon how intricate the design is. (This is usually for gowns and dress design, or if the commission is very specific with detailed scenery. See samples below.)

:star:Payment & Details :star:

User Rights
:pointr: If you commission me I have the right to create a YouTube video, if I desire, on the creation of your image which will be monetized. I will not claim your character as my own, I want to simply be able to show a process video and will credit who owns the character.
:pointr: If you let me know in advance, you have the right to not have a YouTube video created showing the process of your commission. Please let me know if you do not wish to have the video created at the time of commission inquiry, before payment. If you change your mind after the video is created, you have already waived your right to have it taken down.
:pointr: If you plan to use my images for commercial use you must notify me first as most images I create are not intended for commercial use.

Shipping Originals
:pointr: If you want the original image, it is $10 for shipping, handling, and materials provided the buyer lives within the United States.
:pointr: I do not ship outside of the U.S.
:pointr: If the buyer does not order the original within our transaction, I am not responsible for keeping the commission in pristine condition. If I lose the original, my cat claws it, I eat it, etc. It is not my responsibility. I draw many pictures and I don't always know where I have stored yours. If you want the original I will mail it at the time of creation. If you ask for the original later on, it's up in the air if I have it available to send.
:pointr: If you order more than one commission I can condense the order into one package and not charge for additional "shipping." There will still be a $5 fee (instead of $10) for each additional original sent for cost of materials.

Method of Payment
:pointr: I do not accept Deviantart "Point" commissions.
:pointr:I only accept PayPal payments. I expect to be paid before I start the commission. Also, I only accept payments when I am ready to work on your commission.   
:pointr: Buyer has to pay PayPal commission. Find calculator here:  thefeecalculator.com/

Time Sensitive Commissions
:pointr: If your commission is time sensitive and I do not have adequate time to complete the commission for reasons (which are not restricted to) given limited notice, not receiving payment on time, line of other commissioners in front of you, cannot get the original mailed in time, etc. I may refuse your commission. In such a circumstance, you will be completely refunded if the payment has been sent.
:pointr: If your commission is time sensitive and you have your heart set on receiving a picture from me that makes it so that I have to go out of my way with any of the above reasons, you may be subject to an additional fee. This fee would be discussed between the commissioner and myself before any payments would be made.

Misc. Information
:pointr: If there is a special request that is not described above, we can negotiate a price (please send me a note). For example: book illustration, character design, etc.
:pointr: If you use one of my original designs (example: outfit/character etc) you MUST reference my drawing if the design is used in another deviation.

:pointr: I am NOT required to make a video on YouTube of the creation of your commission. If for any reason the creation of a video is required for the purchase of a commission on the buyer's end, you must let me know of this before the commission is paid for. There may be reasons that I cannot make a video.


Commission Status
:pointr: If you have any questions or concerns, send me a note. I post the status of commissions at the bottom of this journal. If you still have any questions about the status of your commissions, please note me and I'll be happy to get back to you.


Please check within the journal on the right if you want to see buyer feedback (Above the Shout Box). Thank you <3

:pointr: I do not ship to outside the U.S.
:pointr: Like the above commissions, buyer of these originals must pay for shipping. Shipping fee is an extra $5 provided you live within the United States.
