Literature
Andi
Fresh, cold air; sparse trees; long, green grass. This was the home he knew.
He flew across the plains like they were nothing—puny, insignificant. Meaningless meters swallowed up by pounding hooves. His legs churned, roiling thick with sweat as they rolled back and forth, stretching, breaching, reaching for more to cover. His heart pounded. Exhilaration, as hot in his face as the long-gone summer sun, sent a chill creeping down his spine as he raced towards the river, whose pleasant path crept lazily across the earth.
The colt’s lungs yearned for the yawning wind, rolling by in thick droves that pulled back his mane, tousled his soft, white pelt with icy, outstretched fingers. It seemed to clutch him in its frozen grasp, to embrace him like a brother. Which was appropriate, in a way, as it was to him. His true brother; his loving brother. Not like the other one, for it was this place that was his true family.
His lithe body remained a warm, diminutive dot on the mead

Literature
Imperfection - AU!Lion King Stampede One-shot
Scar, the dark lion, the prince of misfortune, slithered out of his place behind the lone umbrella tree whose foliage had graced the otherwise dry clime in the canyon's bottom. The suppressed sunshine reappeared, pelting his clay brown hide and gradually slicking it with sweat as he walked slowly through the oppressive heat. With him was the golden child—who, contrary to common sense or the many degrees of heat and sticky humidity which was simmering in the deathly-still and torpid air around them—was bounding happily and jumping and playing and asking his uncle why he did not do the same.
He almost chuckled. Him, play? In this heat? Such a novelty…
"Uncle Scar, Uncle Scar, what're you gonna show me in the gorge?"
If the older lion had been keeping track, this would've been the twentieth time he'd begged him to spoil his little… surprise. But he wasn't going to release it the first time, and he sure as hell wasn't going to after a hundred times. If the cub knew

[**UPDATE** (6/2018) - I'm still on hiatus from dA and yeah, most of my pieces are still super old. I'm currently working part-time and about to go into my last year of school. I may or may not try to upload more pieces at some point, but it depends on how things go and if I feel like there would be a place for them.]

Currently taking a break from dA. My art has been improving a lot over the past several months and most of the pieces in my gallery do not reflect my current skill level.

I will likely come back and remove/edit/rearrange existing pieces, and add new ones, once I have more time (whenever that is) and I feel comfortable.

I am a full-time college student and part-time peer adviser during the year (I'm a 2nd year Animal Science major at UC Davis) and I am working a full-time job during the summer. Additionally, I am collaborating on a project with my old friend :iconqualalia:. Therefore, I have little time for my own pursuits at the moment.

Keep this in mind.

Thank you for dropping by. :)

I'm a college student who doesn't want to be completely broke all the time, so if you would like to commission me then please send me a :note:. This is the spot to pay for any art/services that I have agreed to give you (or if you want to donate randomly, that's fine too :hug:). Below are my terms and conditions in the former case.

:bulletgreen: You may send a :note: or leave a comment to request a commission.
:bulletgreen: Please pay in full once I accept your commission request or message me if there are unforeseen circumstances that will not allow you to. If I do not receive a payment and do not hear from you within a reasonable time period, then you will be moved to the bottom of the list or dropped altogether.
:bulletgreen: Do pay the full amount of the commission. (If you are extremely wary of paying everything up front, we can discuss options to split the fee into two. However, at least half must be paid beforehand for me to start your commission.)
:bulletgreen: If, for whatever reason, I am unable to complete your commission, and it is my fault, you will be refunded.
:bulletgreen: If you decide you no longer want the commission, and I have not yet finished the rough sketch, you will be refunded.
:bulletgreen: If you decide you no longer want the commission, and it is partially complete, you will receive a partial refund.
:bulletgreen: You will be sent a rough sketch before starting, and you may request a WIP at any point thereafter. If you would like something to be changed, please tell me when I send the appropriate WIP. Major changes will cost extra.
:bulletgreen: I mostly draw horses, but I will also accept commissions of other animal species provided that you give me plenty of references of your characters. I also can draw Lion King-style animals.
:bulletgreen: I do not mind gory/mature/NSFW images (as long as the subject matter is acceptable to post on deviantArt), but I reserve the right to administer a surcharge for such.

:bulletred: It is YOUR responsibility to provide as many references as necessary to accurately draw your chosen subject, and/or to provide a detailed explanation of what you want in your commission.
:bulletred: You may NOT receive a refund because you are unhappy with the end result.
:bulletred: You may NOT edit, sell, or redistribute the rights to my work for any purpose without my express permission - however, you can keep it for private, non-profit use, as long as you do not claim ownership of the product. You may also re-upload the commission to your dA gallery as long as you link back to the original deviation on my page.


If you just like my profile and want to see more art, then feel free to simply donate :points:. It would be much appreciated, and I will of course return the favor with a llama and a look through your gallery! Thanks! :heart:

Commission Info

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 10, 2016, 2:41 PM
  • Listening to: "Castle" by Halsey
  • Reading: This journal?
  • Watching: Hilariousness ensue on Skype
  • Eating: Nothing today... I should go soon, lmao
  • Drinking: The tears of orphans! ... Just kidding, it's water


COMMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN!!!


I am in college, as some of you may know, and I would greatly appreciate any help that I can get, financially speaking. For that reason I am opening up some commission slots for those of you who are interested! These are the basic types of commissions that I am offering and that I feel most comfortable with. If you desire something else aside from what is on this list, then please note me and, if it something that I am okay with doing, we can work out a price.


I am currently opening up 5 slots. These are first come, first serve. Once I agree to your commission request, be sure to send payment. If you do not, and I do not hear from you in a timely manner, you will be removed from the slot list and someone else will be given the spot.


If you do not make it into one of the slots and are kept on the waitlist, or if you are bumped from your slot, never fear! Next time I open up commissions, you will be notified and asked if you would like a slot. c:



SKETCHES


Headshot sketches - 300 Points or $3 (450 Points or $4.50 colored)
Sketch 3 by taurequine      Sketch 2 by taurequine      Sketch 1 by taurequine

Full-body sketches - 500 Points or $5 (750 Points or $7.50 colored)
Full Sketch 2 by taurequine      Full Sketch 1 by taurequine

If you want me to line-art the sketch in Paint Tool SAI for easy coloring (example below), there will be an extra 300 Points ($3) added for headshots and an extra 500 Points ($5) added to full-body pieces.
CHANCE YOU GOOD sketch by taurequine     ->      CHANCE YOU GOOD lineart by taurequine


COLORED PIECES



Currently I am only offering pieces done with flat colors or cell-shading/simple shading. I am currently not offering painted commissions. All these pieces come with a transparent or simple BG by default. If you wish to have a more complex background, then please address this in the :note: or comment and we can discuss it.

Headshots - 1000 Points or $10 (500 Points or $5 per extra character, up to 3)

Happy Holiday Horse by taurequine      Easy Breezy by taurequine      Melliza by taurequine

Full-body - 2500 Points or $25 (1500 Points or $15 per extra character, up to 2)

What if... by taurequine     


OTHER



Design commissions, ref sheets, YCH/YHH, TLK-style characters, written commissions, pixel art, simple animations. Prices and availability TBD (sans design commission). 

Character designing - 1500 Points or $15 (500 Points or $5 for each extra character with the same line-art)



This journal will likely be edited in the future as I offer up new styles and types of commission, so be sure to check back often.

Have a great day! :D

I'm going to answer the questionnaire that they posted... here goes. :)

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    About two years now.

  2. What does your username mean?
    IDK, it was super late when I made this account and kind of out of ideas. Probably should've come up with something better, but oh well. :P

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Adaptable, diplomatic, intellectual.

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Right handed.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    I put one up YEARS ago, but I got embarrassed and took it down. :| Oh well. First one I've uploaded since then is this one.



  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Writing and digital art, though I like to dabble in a lot of things. :D

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Probably animation, or plush making. :la:

  8. What was your first favourite?
    This photo was the first piece I favorited. I love Icelandics! Love 
    Horse stock 49 by Ulvar-Stock

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    A lot of horse art (mostly digital), Lion King fanart, sometimes random stuff by good artists I find. Usually it's digital though I think.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    CRAP! It's so hard to say!! Nuu I've seen a lot of good ones on here. :icontamberella: is really good and uses a style I'd like to master. She actually started out posting art as a TLK artist on a website I was a part of, and now she's pretty famous across dA. So that's pretty cool. But again, that's just one. I'm really, really hard-pressed to pick a favorite.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    :iconjulietteskywalker: We are close friends and we talk a lot on Skype. It'd be really cool to meet up, but we live on opposite sides of the country. Waaaah! 

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    I dunno, I feel like most people are just really nice here and like to spread the love. So that's pretty cool. I love deviantART! 

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Digital tools (Paint Tool SAI + Wacom Intuos Pro)/Keyboard (for writing), and my backup would probably be graphite or charcoal pencils.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    I like to look at pieces from my friends and the people I'm watching; sometimes that inspires me. I also really love tutorials and I love seeing new techniques and learning that way. That really has helped my art a lot over the years, I think.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    Hard to say. I need to spend more time here. I think I've fainted.

    Anyway, hope that lets you learn something about me! Enjoy this special day and stay awesome, fellow deviants. Heart  I hope you enjoyed my #deviantartistquestionnaire. :D
