Anthro Variety and more
From character design to colouring, pencil and digital paint, my greatest strengths are in anthropomorphics and expression. My style can vary according to need and can extend to a semi-realism to manga oriented style.

Every little bit helps. I'll be collecting so that I may be able to give to others, either in future events or small tokens as I wish to encourage the community in more ways than I can on my own.

there is a place for motivational/demotivational posters using screencaps, but it's not on dA. I am getting so fed up of seeing those here.

Semester End

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 12, 2016, 10:56 AM

Thank you everyone for reading my previous post and what ever effort you've made to try to help. I've managed to get the music needed for my animation with the help of a former neighbour. It's been an interesting experience when it came to getting the music and even more so a fun experience taking part of the 5.1 surround sound remastering.

The semester had its setbacks for the production schedule, not just with the overwhelming number of tasks affiliated with the pre-production, but events in life with my husband, with friends and family. Being able to cope with only a single task at a time, even organizing the ones on my list had running in all directions, getting me nowhere. What I've managed to take in from this semester was learning to cope with stress, namely quick problem solving and how to not be under stress. I'd like to thank a lot of people who had been supportive with their rational words.  I've collected myself and focused on the one task that I really had to do, animate. Dismissing any stress, I went on a binge and started animating at breakneck speed.

I have never felt so alive!

I love animating!

It can be hard sometimes to just talk about all of the process without any prompts, so please write in some questions as I'd love to answer and share my experience.

Thank you for being here.

:bulletpurple:I'm a Furry, so feel free to ask any questions regarding this. Not all Anthro Artists are furries of course.
:bulletpink:I'm an Aspie (diagnosed 2009). This means that I'm rather a nerd who does faux-pas (which I learn from, being on the spectrum is not an excuse)
:bulletred:I'm Married (since 2006)

:bulletyellow:I'm transferring from Livestream to YouTube. Just got to edit some old vids and record some new stuff. More info later.
:bulletorange:I don't support tracing as I find that it hinders the learning process of drawing.
