A note on popularity

A note on popularity

Someone recently told me they saw my Aladdin/AC crossover pics and that they weren't impressed. They seemed to be implying that I was "selling out" in order to get more views. With regards to popularity: I am not in charge of what other users find fave-worthy. I never expected my silly crossover doodles to become as popular as they did. To me, art is about drawing what I want, not what other people want me to draw. That may sound cliché, but it's the truth. I draw a lot of fan art because it inspires me personally. I don't expect everyone to like it. If you're not impressed by my stuff, I'm sure there are lots of other (better) artists out t

'For exposure' - a warning to artists

'For exposure' - a warning to artists

I ran into this Twitter page a few days ago. It's a collection of real comments that artists get all the time asking them to work for free, or, as these people often prefer to say, "for exposure". https://twitter.com/forexposure_txt People like this are usually trying to guilt-trip artists into taking on massive projects for no pay, claiming it'll be good advertisement or that they'll get paid once the project becomes a success. The truth is, the chances of getting picked up by a major studio are extremely small. The so-called free advertisement the artist may or may not end up getting is usually not worth the effort. Just to give you a ta

My Bio
You can support me by donating through paypal.me.

Style
As you may have gathered from perusing my gallery, my style is a mixture of cel-shading and realism with influences from Arakawa and Mashima. I prefer a more realistic style over chibi or overly stylized cartoonish drawings. I do on occassion dabble in traditional art -- as that is where I began my artistic journey -- but prefer working in a digital medium.

Policies
I'm ok with other people coloring my lineart as long as they credit/notify me. Stealing is, of course, a big no-no and I would rather you not repost my art. If you'd like to have my art on certain social media, send me a message. I have accounts on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook that I post my art to, so please reblog/retweet from there. For other sites, links to my posts on deviantart/tumblr/twitter are fine. Reposting is not. I may post to other sites in the future.

You MAY use my art in videos so long as you NOTIFY, CREDIT, and LINK to me and the original artwork and do not intend on gaining a profit from in inclusion of my art. You may use my art in avatars or desktop/phone wallpapers as long as it is not in an attempt to impersonate me or gain a profit from their use.

If you are an RPer and wish to use my fanart for icons / banners, you may do so only with BANNERS and ONLY if you credit me. I may allow usage of my art as icons, but please know that I tend to RP as well and see my art and icons as part of my portrayal. You may NOT use art of my original creations or myself, period.

I am open to requests, suggestions, and prompts for fanart on the explicit grounds that said art will NOT be used for profit and instead is used for FUN and JOKES and GOOD TIMES.

I am also open to commissions, so long as they are for original creations and NOT fan art -- on the grounds that such art is copyright infringement on the work of their respective creators. I could get sued, you could get sued, we could all end up in bad places, and no one wants that. Besides, it just doesn't feel right to profit off of someone else's creation.

A Little Update

A Little Update

Ok, so I've had a few people wondering if I'm planning on continuing my doujinshi so I'm gonna address it here! Sorry for the long wait on a reply, btw. XD Time tends to slip by me sometimes. I actually had a bit of writer's block for the next page for quite some time and a lot of other projects/ideas have been stealing my attention. Most recently, I've been focusing on a continuation of Rhov (https://www.deviantart.com/rhov) 's Beastly Possession fanfic, which I've started in drabble/rp form, but plan on creating full-fledged chapters for. Much of my art is centered on that fanfic, honestly, and I'd really like to turn her work into a doujinshi one of these days. That woul

So, I'm pretty much just making this to cut down on the space I put in my bio for those curious about how I tick. Feel free to comment if you want.
