...this list of things has been eating my time:
Making ebook covers
Watching my husband play Fallout 4, because he's hilariously enthusiastic
Making my husband play Witcher 3 so I can stare at Geralt's tight little ass
Want me to (potentially) make art for you?I have a problem! Maybe you can help!
I have to create enough sellable art in 8 weeks to fill 3 bays at a science fiction convention art show.
I also, as I have this sideline of ebook covers, have to create enough example covers and pre-made covers that I can sell to make my website worth visiting.
I have zero inspiration, alas. (I swing wildly between zero inspiration and too much coming at me, and no focus. #ADHDlife)
I am thinking that maybe if people supplied me with fake book titles, original characters from your fic (Genre fic: SF/F/Horror/Historical/Paranormal Romance, etc.) or RPGs, or other types of potential inspiration, it might help me focus.
No fanart, and you'd have to give me permission to sell prints and/or originals if it's your original character. (Stick with fake book/story titles if you're unsure!)
If I end up with a work out of it, I'll happily email you a high-res copy (with a permission letter for printing it out if you w
Where'd you get your fine art quality prints made?I used to just make my own, with a super-nice printer that did wide-format prints, but since I stopped doing artist alleys, I got rid of the printer. (I wasn't using it enough to keep the ink from drying out, and it's not worth having to drop $100 on a full set of ink for the, like, two prints I wanted per year.)
I signed up for an art show (not alley) at a convention later this year, and while most of my stuff is going to be originals, I'd like to put some limited-edition prints in, but they need to be fine-art quality, probably giclee prints, not just your average Staples color print.
Assume that I don't have any mom-and-pop print shops near me, and need to do this online. Where do you get your prints made, what is the quality, and roughly how much does it cost you?
Original works addedBut not here! They're over on my original-works DA account: :iconsfolse:.
Trying to get a few done for a convention this weekend.

Commissions mailing listNOTE: I almost never log in any more, so I probably won't see comments left here. E-mail me if you want a reply (personal email in my Devious Info section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
All righty, then. I've set up an announcement list via Dreamhost to notify interested people when I'm open for a commission. This way, I have an idea of people who are interested, but it's not a list of commitments to do art, because I always fail at meeting that sort of commitment if I ahve more than one person on a list.
Anyway. Stuff to know before signing up:
1) Dreamhost is weird in sending stuff out. I have no control over when messages *actually* go out from it, so you might receive the message several hours after I send it. This also means that I might have sent it 2 hours ago and you may still have a chance to be the first to respond.
2) I also have no control over *your* email host and when they send messages out. If you reply to me immediately, it migh
LJ Secret Santa fanart exchange, A-Kon stuff, etcYuletart (a Secret Santa fanart exchange on Livejournal) is open for sign-ups!
I've been very scarce around these parts, but that's because I haven't been doing much art lately - I've been working on the ProjectA-Kon official website (the new site design isn't live yet! the old one, which isn't mine, is still up!) and some other stuff for the new A-Kon PR and Marketing committee, and have been working on possible new stuff for artist alley tables because I have been re-bitten by the SEWING BUG. And there's an original fiction project I'm working on. And I've got a coding project for a cosplay database that's partly done. Oh, and Toby and I are going to England and Wales in a couple of weeks.
And I have to fit my actual job in there somwhere, too.
So, yeah, very busy, not much time. If you're JUST DYING for more of my deathless prose, you can follow me on
Photoshop CS5 Content-Aware FillA quick review of Photoshop 5's new Content-Aware Fill is up at my Livejournal. If you have a comment that you'd like an answer for, leave it over at LJ or, if you don't have an LJ, you can sign in with an OpenID at the Dreamwidth crosspost (link at the review). Or my email address is on my DA home page, LJ and Dreamwidth profile pages, if you don't have an OpenID.
It's mostly because I utterly fail at responding to comments on DA in a timely fashion. (The restrictive comments policy at LJ is due to anonymous people leaving provocative drive-by comments and never coming back to engage in conversation, which is just rude, IMHO. If you're going to leave a comment, you should a least bother to read the replies.)

DO NOT ATTACK OR APPROACH HIM. NOT ONLY IS HE NOT WORTH YOUR TIME OR EFFORT, BUT IT COULD GET YOU BANNED. MY ADVICE IS JUST AVOID HIM, BLOCK IF NECCESSARY. DO NOT DO ART TRADES/REQUESTS FOR THIS GUY.
It is about fucking time I brought all of this to light. You stopped talking to me and un-watched me, so I can only assume you want nothing else to do with me. I don't have to defend you anymore. We're not friends, and now it's time to warn others so that they don't have to go through the same BULLSHIT you put me and so many other people through.

deviantART on our Lucky 13As you get older, you may begin to see birthdays as a distinctive point in time. A time for reflection on past successes, past roadblocks, past lessons. I also see it as an opportunity to look forward, set goals, aim ridiculously high. I'm sure everyone's heard people joke about disliking getting older and lamenting another year passing, but not me. Not yet, at least. The wisdom and hard lessons I've had to learn over the years helps me map out my immediate future. I may stumble, sure, but I also have a lifetime of overcoming obstacles and analyzing achievements to guide my decisions. All I can do is keep learning and growing.
I feel much the same way about deviantART.
I don't need to tell you that a web property sticking around for 13 years is a rare thing, and it's not an accomplishment we take lightly. We owe our continued existence to all of you, and the passion and inspiration that emanate so naturally from the community, from the most successful professional to the mo
Announce and Guidance about my new accountsGood day, dears! ( ^-^)ゝ
An important and maybe positive news I'll bring now.
Seeing bad rumors about DeviantArt's next update: Eclipse, my big friends suggested me to make an account on another site named ArtStation as many others doing recently.
And this suggestion of them encouraged me to bring my step one forward.
What I've decided is to create new two official accounts of mine out of DeviantArt.
And the places are: the one- ArtStation and the another- Instagram
(because of seeing how many people tried to be fake "Mizuki-T-A" there. At last there
My Opinion on DeviantArt EclipseWelp I'm hopping on the band-wagon I suppose, but not in a negative matter of speaking.
As a beta tester I got a notice that said I could test a new potential site layout. I was mildly interested and decided I would try it out when I had time, which was today. The past couple days I've seen so many status posts and journals threatening to leave because of how much people hate the Eclipse version of deviantArt, but I couldn't personally see what would make an update so bad people didn't want to be here anymore.
I finally got to test it out today, and I must say it's got a nice modern design and it seems like it's easier to access places like the forums and the watch area. Not only that you get direct notification when you have feedback, and you can check it once and it doesn't press on, and you can look back at it any time. My only concern was that "Oh, I can't see what the people I'm watching are posting!" but that's not the case! That's what
[FREE RAFFLE] It's that time of year again...!
Thank you all for your support! ; w ;
Is it tradition now that it's the third year in a row? YES, LETS SAY YES!
THANK YOU, each and every one of you, for all your support in the past year! I've tried to be around as much as possible this year, and I hope it shows. My to-do list is at it's all-time historical low, and my clearance rate has been going up too. But that wouldn't have been possible without all of you guys' patience and support. As always, I wish I had the time to answer every comment I get, but I somehow always find myself low on time to do that AND keep up the arting pace. I do read them all, and each and every one of them makes me so happy that someone took the time out of their day to give me their feedback. More than anything, thank YOU GUYS! I couldn't do this without you. And to show that, it's the yearly free raffle!
More winners will be pulled this year: 3 guaranteed win
commissionTranslation: by Retro7
it's the first time (in 13 years XD) since I'm in deviantart that I'm doing this because of the number of people who send me suggestions and questions about whether I make commissions. I will try to be as clear as possible but in case of requesting a commission. by private message we can clarify things.
first I will detail my requirements and requirements to make a drawing:
- I only draw anime style, do not ask me for portraits of you or of another person (unless you want a drawing of you with that style), neither of ponies (simply why do not I get it right XD)
- I can do OCs, anime characters, video games, cartoons, humanized ponies, etc ... always with the style I use (however by message I will tell you if I can or can not perform your order)
- if your order is an oc must be very detailed as is the character: age, personality and their physical features (if they
