:bulletblue: Commissions: Closed :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Art Trades: Closed :bulletblue:
:bulletblue: Requests: Closed :bulletblue:

Commission Info will be updated later when people are more interested, for now it will be on a case by case basis.
Here's some rules about what I do:
:bulletred: NO NSFW stuff might want to ask someone else.
:bulletred: NO Furries/MLP I just don't draw that kind of stuff. If it's like a gijinka humanized character I can do that.
:bulletred: Please please PLEASE don't ask me to draw weird fetishy stuff. You may be into it but I am not and I will not draw it. I get weird requests somewhat often and I feel really bad having to say no, so just don't ask me.
:bulletgreen: Please look through my gallery before asking for a commission to see my style/the kind of art I can do. It's unfair to get mad at me if I say no to a style I'm not comfortable with.
:bulletgreen: Please be a watcher if you ask for a request/commission. Then you're more used to seeing it and can determine if you really like my style. Also I think it's just more courteous.
:bulletgreen: I can do traditional/digital. The prices will vary since traditional is more time consuming for me.
:bulletgreen: I'm working on getting better at backgrounds but they are not something I can do well yet.
:bulletgreen: My traditional work is in pencil/color pencil!
:bulletpurple: If you are interested feel free to send me a note! I am cheap for now because I'm new to this so get em while they're hot!

Since I'm over 1000 and gained some very quickly I thought it would be fun to do a little get to know me, so you know who you are watching!
So I asked a few days ago for people to send in questions they may have and I'm going to add in a few of my own. Feel free to comment more and I'll add them in!

Quick Bio
My name is Emmy! I'm from the wonderful on fire state of California. I went to college for engineering and I'm currently working on a Masters in building preservation!

I have a super cool job doing building assessment and such. It's far so this summer has been a bit flaky because I'm out for like 12-14 hours a day. Commuting is the wooorst. I'll be going back to school in August and my art will pick up again. 

Questions from You!

Favorite musical genre or bands? 
I love rock and alternative. And various other music that just peaks my interest. My favorite band is Mallory Knox. Right now I'm also a bit obsessed with the songs  "The Girl" by City and Color, "Sleep on the Floor" by Lumineers, and "Pynk" by Janelle Monae. Great songs!

The Best/Your favorite Pokemon type?
Fire and water! I love arcanine but my Swampert holds a special place in my heart. 

Favorite animal and color? Do you have any pets? 
Favorite color is cool colors. No preference.
I LOVE CATS. I don't know if that's obvious. I personally have one fur son. Parker he's the best. But being home right now we have 7. 

Hogwarts house?
I'm a Hufflepuff!

Favourite ice cream flavour?
I'm so bland I love french vanilla! Or cookies n creme. 

If you could have one super power, what would it be? 
I'd be Danny Phantom. I would love ghost powers. 

What made you interested in drawing? 
My parents have always been great at encouraging us to be artsy and creative and let out the nerd. So I've been drawing for a long time. I went to art classes as a kid with my friend and then ended up being a TA for a bit in high school. I've just always loved it!
Do you know any forms of martial arts?
Not at all! As for sports in general, I used to swim alot. I have been surfing quite a few times. But right now I've gotten into rock climbing!

What are your favorite anime series, if you have any?
Yes! I hold a special place for Cardcaptor Sakura and Sailor Moon. I also like Soul Eater, Air gear, Ouran High School, Fullmetal, MaidSama, and like so many. 

How far can you fling a rubber band? 
Great question! That isn't something I've ever measured! 

Other Questions
Favorite games?
I also love Fallout, Witcher, Pokemon, Fire Emblem, Skyrim, FF, Horizon Zero Dawn, and so many. 
Also into board games! 

Biggest fear?
Ending up alone. Also drowning. I almost drowned during Mavericks one year, scary but I still love the ocean. (I was actually out surfing but not in the competition!)

Where have you been?
Guys I love to travel! I've been to like 40/50 states. Scotland, England, Sweden, Copenhagen, Munich, Iceland, Oslo, Japan, and Guam! Always take the opportunity (or create it) to travel to a new country you learn so much and I think it humbles people. I have friends from all walks of life that live all over the world! My next trip is hopefully to Ireland!

Art Related Questions
How often do you draw?
Not as much as I should~

What tools do you use?
I got a Cintiq last year! Replacing my 6 yr old Intuos that died. My digital art is all done in Painttool Sai. I also have Prismacolor pencils for the few times I do traditional again. 

What do you want to get better at?
Everything. I really need to practice backgrounds, hands, feet, clothing, color. All the things. 

Are you going to commission?
I hope to in the future. After this round of contest drawings I'm going to focus my skills and I have a few ideas I want to do! And then when I become more consistent and better I do want to commission if people are interested!

Are you going to make videos/livestream?
That's something I want to pose to you guys! If this is something you may want to see. I have considered doing livestreams and make speedpaints. Again when I get more consistent and have time. 

That's all I have for now! Feel free to leave more! Thank you all for the support it really is encouraging to do more art when you can show it to others and they enjoy it too!

OH HELLO. My name is Emmy and I'm an aspiring artist. Just a hobby for now. I graduated in Structural Engineering and I'm currently working on my Master's in Historic Preservation, but I am here to sharpen my art skills as I've always loved it.
So we'll see where life and my art skills could take me someday.
I'm generally pretty friendly so feel free to come talk to me and I'm open to critiques and ideas!
A little about me: I like cats and that's my baby Parker. That's all that's really important.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my gallery!



Thanks for the Llama!
