Sketch giveawayIn light of my recent obtention of 2000 watchers (whoa, thanks a bundle guys ), I wanted to do something celebratory.
So I thought perhaps a sketch giveaway was in order.
For this giveaway, I will be giving away 5 sketch commissions, or in terms of my regular pricing, 400 or 5$
Heh, that doesn't sound like very much at all
(perhaps I'm underpriced, that's quite likely)
Regardless, tell me in the comments what you would like a sketch of. If it's specific (ex. a bird you own), reference pictures would be in order. (Oh, and watchers only.)
I will then assign you a number.
At the end, five numbers would be chosen at random via the random number generator, and I will put them all up in a sketchdump when I'm finished. If you want your image separate/in a higher resolution, then give me your email and I shall email you.
Top Surgery Fund Updates
August 9, 2014 - Thanks to proceeds from Tampa Comic Con, the fund has surpassed $5,000! I am still searching for the right surgeon, and have had two of those I looked into eliminated as possibilities unfortunately. My best lead is still a doctor in the Chicago area, so I may have to travel. His rates would also probably put me at $12,000 for the procedure/hospital fees, plus travel/accommodations. I am doing my best to put as much as I can towards it and to keep looking for more options, as my pain and cough have been worsening over the past few months. the-fox-after-dark is selling handmade Toothless plushies for proceeds too if you are interested! More straight-for-sale items will be available in the hopefully near future too. Thank you again for all of your help!
July 11, 2014 - Currently the fund is up to $3,205! Thank you so much for all of you
Why People are Losing Confidence In Wikipedia
Why People are Losing Confidence In Wikipedia
Scholar by tsonline
I goofed up big time in writing the Dracula article.
Dracula is such a favorite novel of mine that it never dawned on me that I should bone up on some basic facts about the story and its author, Bram Stoker. So I didn’t even glance at Wikipedia before I started writing. Big mistake.
Hours after the article was published as part of the big Beta rollout of the new Front Page of deviantART, I was awakened by comments informin
30 Days of Thanks!Foxbride posted a journal about sharing 30 days of things you're grateful for through the whole month of November, and I absolutely love this idea!
For the first two I'm actually stealing hers as well, because they are spot on and were definitely a staple in making the weekend (and Halloween) amazing.
Nov. 1: I'm grateful for the cooler weather! We have the windows open and it's so brisk - the walks are so relaxing and awesome, and the breeze coming in means wearing and sleeping in kigurumis all weekend Best snuggle weather!
Nov. 2: Hot cider! It complements this weather just right and is giving me all the nostalgia. So happy.
Nov. 3: Kids at heart! Having friends over on Halloween who were so excited about playing with old toys, coloring in coloring books, watching Hocus Pocus, and playing party games was the best. I'm so lucky to know such fun people who make me feel like I'll never truly grow old.
Nov. 4: My parents' acceptance. I My biggest
Ramblings of a Wannabe ArtistAs most of you guys know, I'm a senior artist for the Disney on Ice and Marvel Live shows, among such other brands as Monster Jam, and I've been pretty swamped working in a fast-paced atmosphere where regular unpaid overtime is expected (and in fact, required) and most of the work is design oriented, as opposed to illustration oriented.
When I was hired, the pay was enough to get by (albeit tight, considering my school loans), and I was told that illustration and animation would become major staples of my career here. It's been over a year and I have had a total of less than ten projects where my art skills are being pushed in a new direction. Most of the work is the same kind of production work I've done previously for Smith-Southwestern, with less creative direction. While I'm grateful for having a job that looks great on a resume and that earns me what I need to keep a roof over my head, it's drawing that's always been my passion and what I wanted to do from the beginning.
