UPDATE 04/29/16 :
Commissions are open! All commission types are available again!

Commissions are how I pay my bills, so every little bit is greatly appreciated!

★ General Terms ★

● All commissions are for private/personal use only.

● Any option with a strike through it is currently not available!

● Please note that it may or may not take me a while to complete your artwork, depending on what else is going on in my life. Sometimes I'm incredibly quick, sometimes I'm slower than Christmas.

● You can always find my commission progress/to do list at the bottom of this journal. If I owe you something and you want to know the status of your commission you can check there, but you can always note me for an update.

● I don't always work on commissions in the order they were received. I have various reasons for jumping around on my list ( my mood, requested deadline, multiple commissions for one person so I take a break and work on someone else's) so please don't think I'm purposely skipping over your commission!

  • anything over PG13

  • FULL mecha (mechanical limbs and armor are fine)

  • old and decrepit, inflation, steroid induced massive body builder muscles

  • animals/ferals or scenery only (there must be a humanoid as the focus of the image)

● If you'd like a commission similar to something in my gallery that doesn't fall into the categories below, feel free to contact me I'll let you know if we can work something out. However, some things like sketches and "simple" drawings are for special occasions only.

● Please let me know if you desire, or are strictly opposed to any embellishments (ie glitter, pressed flowers, rhinestones, etc)

Tue Feb 15, 2011, 3:27 PM

Yeah...I gots one! Going to be posting sketches, WIPs, and probably some giddy art supply rants from time to time, stuff I generally don't post on DA. I don't intend to do alot of reblogging stuff (I kinda find that a smidge annoying on art blogs) Still really new to this thing. Sorry there's not much there at the moment, but I haven't really done much art that I can post online just yet. It's coming!

If you have one, or know of some cool art blogs, DO SHARE!

art mood swings and other updates

Wed Jan 5, 2011, 2:00 AM

Art mood swings, I has them! I wouldn't even call it an art block because it's not that I cant/don't know what to draw, I just don't feel like drawing period. I go through this terribly productive/unproductive cycle every other week or so. I'll be so productive and draw so much a week or two, and the next week I'd rather craft or play video games or something, and don't even pick up a pencil. The entire month of December pretty much put me in the off stage of this cycle. But...I think I'm starting to come back into the productive stage!

I'm sorry to everyone who's been waiting on commissions! It may still be a while yet for some of the bigger ones because I have some...deadline sensitive commission work outside of DA due at the end of this month. However, I am trying to work on da commissions along side that. Once that's done I'll be able to devote most of my time to regular commissions. Hopefully I can get most of them knocked out in a timely matter.

So, I hope everyone had a good Christmas and new year! My christmas was pretty good, and new years is never anything spectacular for me because I'm not a party person, and staying up past midnight is nothing special. Though I do believe the idiot rednecks down the street from me were shooting shotguns instead of fire crackers OTL  But...year of the rabbit is my year, so maybe this will be a good one!

I don't say it often enough, but thanks for your support! I know I'm really bad about replying to comments, but I read every one and appreciate all the comments and faves from you guys <3

I'll be coloring this.


My online status will always be in the journal title. Even if it's like 10 hours after the time I start, if the journal says online, chances are I'm still working on something (unless it's on the off chance that I forget to update this journal before I pass out in the floor)

My internet hiccups alot, so if I disappear without saying I'm leaving, be patient, I'll be back.

TracePad FTW!

Thu Jun 17, 2010, 10:02 PM

Lookout, Sonny got a new toy <3

I don't usually get so excited to the point of writing journals about getting new art supplies, but this thing is something I've been needing/wanting for a while now and I'm hyped. So if you don't feel like reading a giddy rant about a LIGHTBOX of all things...just turn back now.

So like...I use a lightbox for pretty much every single finished piece of art I do (to transfer my sketches onto bristol) Until now all I had was one of those cheapo $30,  10x12 inch artograph light tracer things that are really too small to do anything with, and bulky to boot. I had thought about building my own larger one, but I'm lazy. So for the past month or so I've been eyeballing copic's TracePad (it isn't really MADE by copic, they just...endorse it I guess?) and I finally broke down and bought the friggin thing (from blick for about 200 bucks)

It's so thiiiiiin! Like, almost as thin as my wacom! I can actually ink things without having to lift my elbows up to my ears because of a stupid bulky lightbox! And it's so well made, and sturdy as hell. From the internet pictures I really thought it would be all plastic like the artograph box and flimsy because of how thin it is, but it isn't at all <3 The back of it is metal and it's pretty dang heavy. I'm actually thinking this thing might be worth the money I spent on it, especially for as much as I use a lightbox. And for once I can actually do a larger piece and have it all on the lightbox at once. Before if I wanted to do something on, say, 11x14 paper I could only have half of it on the lightbox, and had to worry about bending what was hanging off DX TracePad is 11x17 (according to the box, by my measurements it's more like 12x16.75) which is way bigger than I normally work, and even if I did want to do something larger than the workspace, it's so thin that I'd be less likely to bend it.

I do wish there was a cheaper alternative for thin panel lightboxes, but I couldn't even find anyone else to make them in that SIZE, and some that were half the size of this thing were just as expensive! I was starting to think "wow...did I really just spend that much money on this thing?" but when I opened it up I was so very pleased. I might even say it was a better investment for ME than my wacom, which mostly collects dust now (of course for some people it probably sounds stupid to spend that much money on something made for tracing) The only thing I don't like is the lack of on/off have to unplug it to turn it off.

And look at the difference between the TracePad and my old lightbox...

Also...exposure compensation on camera makes it look radioactive or something when it's lit up.(it's not really THAT bright)

My room is still cooler than yours

Sun Mar 7, 2010, 3:59 PM

Some of you may remember, just about a year ago I posted a journal with pics of my art room. Well, since we moved in October, I no longer have a separate bedroom and art room, so I sort of found a way to combine the decor of the two former rooms(my bedroom was red and black, my art room was lime green and teal/turquoise). I finally got cleaned up and most of my stuff hung on the walls in a remotely decent manner and decided to take some pictures :3 I take much pride in my decor <3

And for the record, my walls are not quite so orange. They have a slightly more red tint to them. Some people call it red, some people call it orange, I just call it vermillion.

(so the filet afghan is kind of dated and tacky but my grandma made it for me and it's pretty and I love it)

Open for regular commissions again now that the Christmas rush is over. You may notice I've taken down my commission prices for sketches/lineart/etc. It just gets to be to much to keep track of in one post, so I think from now on I'll just offer special sketch commissions and stuff at certain times. I also added a section to the right of my journal to keep track of everything a little better.

It must seem like I'm always begging for monies these days. Oh, wait...that's because I am OTL

Santa Claus DOES exist! And he comes in the form of a slightly creepy AT&T tech named Adam. After almost THREE MONTHS of waiting for them to dig holes and run phone lines, I have a constant, reliable source of home internet again! *swoons* Now I can turn back into a depressed hermit that doesn't even step outside for days at a time. Really...I wonder if getting DSL back is such a good thing after all XD I was actually starting to spend time outside of my dark bedroom.

However, with the return of internet, I wonder...If I could get a webcam set up decently, do any of you think you could get past looking at my fat hands and short pudgey fingers long enough to watch some copic livestreaming? I had been wanting to make another tutorial, but to get all of the information in that I'd like I would have to make like...five or more. Plus, my coloring seems to keep changing, so a tutorial has the chance of becoming outdated really fast, like my first one has. Livestream just seems like an easier alternative.

On another note...happy new year and whatnot. A little late, but I hope everyone had a great 2009 and has a better 2010. 2009 was hella stressful for me, just...not the best year emotionally. And yet,'s the best art year I've had in a while. I feel like I actually took a step forward in my art this past year. Crazy how these things work.

How does 2 weeks turn into 3 months!? Still no sign of me getting home internet any time soon. First AT&T said it would be 2-3 weeks (back in October) then it was 4-6 weeks, then they said December 1st, now they're saying December 31st. At this rate I probably wont have home internet until JULY e__e What the hell is up with this!? Does it REALLY take that long to run a telephone line into a neighborhood?

I've been in the process of moving to a new house over the past couple of weeks. My parents built a new house in a new subdivision (and I'm lazy and jobless so I'm moving with them instead of getting my own place e__e) I thought they were going to hook up the phone and internet today, but now it's going to be another 2 weeks. Seeing as how it's in the middle of nowhere and ours is the ONLY HOUSE ON THE STREET, there isn't even a phone line run into the neighborhood. I'll try to get on the internet at our old house or at school and check DA when I can. Either way, my internet access is scarce. I FEEL SO ISOLATED!!!

Maybe I'll get a chance to take a breather from moving and unpacking to get some decent art done...without the internet to distract me and all e___e

If maybe you don't need any of this stuff, but know someone that might want it, would love for you to spread it around :3 Don't make me have to resort to the ebay giant DX

Pencil Butter LIVES!

Sun May 31, 2009, 12:22 PM

After nearly THREE YEARS of rotting in the darkest corner of the internet...I finally decided to update my website! The layout is the same one made for me by bria0128 just..tweaked a teensy bit *is too lazy to learn enough to make her own layout*

There are a few pages that aren't up yet, because I either don't actually have the stuff to go on them, or am just too lazy to go through it all right now. The links section especially, I have to re-sort all my bookmarked art sites before I can get those pages done.

If anyone has an art site they'd like me to link to, feel free to drop me a line. However, I want to keep my links to a fairly high quality of art and websites and I wont link to anything with excessive ads.

I had this big doom and gloom journal written out, and then I read it, and was like....wooooow this is depressing, and I don't want to throw that on you guys. I didn't like reading it myself DX So here's a short, blunt version, and there's some not so gloomy stuff near the end if you really just want to skip the next paragraph.

On Friday my stupid 15 year old cousin caught himself on fire and is in the hospital with severe burns to his face, arm and back. He might need some skin grafting, but he'll be ok. On top of that, my great grandmother passed away the day before mother's day. She was 80 years old, very sick, and we'd been expecting it for a while. It's sort of a relief that it's over for her, and the people that worked so hard to take care of her. It hurts, but I think it hurt worse seeing her condition gradually worsen. Really, I think everyone has dealt with it pretty well. I get random times where I'll start REALLY thinking about her and I'll cry a little, but I'm OKAY. So don't worry about me.

On a lighter note,I'll be going to my grandparents' house out in the country in a few days, for the funeral, and I'll probably stay there for a week at least. I used to go stay my whole summer with them when I was younger, but as I've gotten older I seem to go visit them less and less. Of course my grandma whines all the time that I never stay with her anymore, so I may as well make her happy and go spend some time with her and my PAWPAW <3 lolz

ANYWAYS, this shouldn't effect me being online or posting on DA since I took my old faithful scanner (that vista didn't want anything to do with *spits on vista*) and hooked it to my grandma's computer, so I can actually do ARTZ while I'm there. And if I get my weekly unemployment monies before we leave for their house, I'm buying a damn router so I can have internetz on my laptop while I'm there. I might even open for a few commissions like the "sketchbook" pieces so I have something to keep me occupied. Maybe...

How long has it been...

Wed May 6, 2009, 12:51 AM

since I really did some serious art, drawn something and really thrown myself into working on it. TOO LONG!

I was looking through some of my older stuff, from 2006ish, and it seems like I just...DID more back then. Tried harder. Where did all my color go? My gallery is mostly sketches now and I hate it. Even what I have that is in color is just...lacking. *snorts* I may have improved on certain things here and there since back then, but overall I think I've regressed. BUT NO MORE OF THAT!

I'm about to throw myself into major art mode, I swear it!

Expect tons of bright colorful copic stuff soon.

Last night my Psychology instructor was MIA for finals and ended up sending the test with someone else that works at the college. Found out today, the reason he couldn't make it to FINALS, was because he was too busy getting arrested...for driving under the influence of a controlled substance. Forget drinking and driving! We always knew he was on something, he was 30 minutes late for every class, spoke with a constant drunken slur, and could hardly form a complete thought.

Anyway...IM FREE! Finals are over, and since I opted not to take any summer classes, I'm free til August! Aaah I want to start drawing non stop!

I know this is like...the LAST thing you guys care about, but I love I took these photos about a while back when it was actually fully clean and figure'd I'd let you guys see where I spend 90% of my time.

This is not my BEDROOM, it's actually my mom's formal dining room that I hijacked and painted lime green to use as an art room XD

My comfy chair(excuse me, this is MOMO's chair) manga and art books, fraggles and other random stuffed things, and most importantly, HUGE TIDUS!

The rest of my bookshelves, with more STUFF, kitty poobox, and my drafting table that i usually only use to pile stuff on. The plastic container under the table is nothing but ART PAPER.

Just try to tell me you don't love the parasol lamp.

This is where I am when I'm not sleeping or at school. Even though I have a drafting table, I do most of my drawing here, unless I'm painting or something. My cats seem to think this computer chair is a scratching post. I think it's time to retire it and get a new one, but do you know how hard it is to find a good high back office chair with arms, that ISN'T LEATHER!?

People are always like...WTF when I say I have a lime green room, but I've yet to have a person come into this room for the first time and not just sit and look around for an hour or so XD
