I started sharing my art at a few other places across the internet, including sketchbooks at CGHub and ConceptArt, so I thought I would share. Incentive is that a lot of stuff  (okay not that much...yet) I don't post here on DeviantART will be there, so go check it out!

Is anybody interested in buying some art from me? Any advice on where to sell art? I am in real need of money to pay off some upcoming dues and I am in trouble unless I can get some money soon. I am wanting to sell some of my paintings and drawings that are available, and prints of anything else seen in my gallery if are interested.

I am also willing to do some small time commissions.

If you want to buy, know anyone who might be interested, or any advice on selling please let me know!  Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Happy Holidays!

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah,  Holidays, New Years, so on and so forth. Thank you all for the all favorites, comments, and views from the past year. Honestly everyone's enthusiasm is one of greatest gifts I have received this year.

To show my appreciation Charmander says hi!

In all seriousness,  I just want to thank everyone who did suggest me for a DD days, months, or years ago but their efforts went unnoticed, and thank you animalartist16 for today's suggestion and alexandrasalas for the feature. Also I want to thank everyone in mass who has favorited, commented, and/or watched me during  the past 24 hours. Everyone here is fantastic. :heart:

I laughed so hard at this. Final Fantasy XIII-2 was recently released in Japan, a long with this wonderful song. Final Fantasy fans will either laugh, cry, rage, or a combination of the three.

Yes, it is real. Straight from the FFXIII-2 OST

Taken from beastofoblivion journal.

Step 1

Make a post in your journal containing your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple to really big.  The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real-life things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where folks could get in touch with you.

Step 2

Surf around other lists to see who has posted their list. If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream for free--do it.  You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.  There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Step 3

The List

1.) Some guarantee or guidance of what I will or can do after my next (final) semester of school. Maybe an art job, graduate school, etc.

2.) Some fan art of my creatures.  I'd would love to see other people's interpretation of my art.

3.) One day I would like a Daily Deviation, one day...

4.) Some more comments or interaction on my DA page. 2,005 watch me holy crap, thank you all and only a fraction ever speak up. Let me hear your voice!

5.) Commissions! Anybody want to buy art from me? :D

6.) A hat!

7.) Filler.

8.) Filler...

9.) FILLERR.

10.) Go out and take the time to make someone happy and fulfill one of their wishlist's items. A little kindness goes a long way. :heart:

Scott Waddell's Webisodes

Discovered this little treasure today and thought a lot of artists here on DA would love it as much as I do. It's a collection of video's by an amazing realist traditionalist artist, Scott Waddell, who talks about his painting and drawing process as he renders figure models.

Here are some links to his other websites:

Scott Waddell's Fine arts
Scott's Sketchbook





Inspiring, excuse me while I go paint. :heart:

Here to show off my new pet, Papo's Allosaurus that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. I usually restrain myself from buying or posting such things, but I caved in both instances. Good things have come from my compulsion, because now I have an awesome dinosaur reference and all this gives me an excuse to post a journal. Excellent...

Picture time! Can anybody think of a good name for the guy? I was thinking Al but that is kind of derivative.  




Buying toys and naming them? Gosh I am a nerd :B

Happy Thanksgiving!

School. Just a lot of school.

Want to hear more than just that?

Well, classes so far have made me actually care about the caramel popcorn known as Cracker Jack; introduced me to a new, deadly form of art making known as Print Etching (sharp objects and acid, yay!); showed me that math is actually easy (my professor gives us the answers), and finally made me wonder why I bother to pay $800 for a painting class to just paint and show my work...oh, that's right, I want my degree.


Anyways, back to Print Etching, that class is the most complex, dangerous, and interesting requirement for my Visual Arts degree I have taken yet.

This is what I have done so far:

vimeo.com/29496059

One plate, four prints, made into one video. As simple and lame as it is, it took me a long time to do that; it's hard to draw into copper. :C



I laughed :D

Thanks to the lovely :iconakreon: for the feature I have had a huge influx of visitors, watchers, and favorites recently. Since I don't have the time to thank each and every one of you, I'll just do it in mass.

So thank you for all the favorites, comments, and welcome to all my new watchers. I honestly do appreciate your interest in my art and I hope to not disappoint you all. :heart:

Thanks to houoh for the one-year gift subscription to DA, I can't offer my thanks to you enough. Now with that said I can find some use for this useless journal. Thanks again houoh !

How is everyone doing? I believe I am getting out of touch with my fellow members and friends of DA so I am here to give a quick update.

First off, Spring Break was last week and it was wonderful. I visited my grandparents in Tubac, Arizona which had a few firsts, such as it was the first time I had flown in a plane in 12 years or my first encounter with the Border Patrol. Anyways, I posted a few pictures of it at my blog for those who care to read on.

*SPOILER ALERT* I launched a nuke. :lol:

I was also very productive: I shaved my dog which took 3 hours total to do, I built three wood panels and saved a butt load of money from buying prebuilt ones, and I beat Terra's story in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Now I just have Ventus and Aqua to go. :D

Yes, this game is awesome. Huge improvement from the horrible voice acting from Kingdom Hearts 2

Anyways, I am going to try and post some thing this week. Whether it be a full blown painting or a simple sketch I don't know, but I will do it!

Thanks for reading! :D

Hey hey everybody, a lot of stuff happening lately (not really) but I am I here to pose another serious question for you all. I usually don't get answers that I expect, but it doesn't to always ask.

So anybody have suggestions for good internships or summer programs relating to video games, movies, or art in general? I, as usual, am hopeless in this situation and have been only able to uncover internships from obvious, big name companies, such as Pixar or EA. I would just like to see what everyone's opinions were.

Also, holy muck, I'm nearing 100,000 pageviews and my birthday. :noes:

P.S. I live in Texas, USA. I forgot that important little tidbit.

I posted some photos on my blog showing the storm that has left me bored, trapped, living on turkey sandwiches, and nearly insane all this week due to the University closing. Also, there's a bonus sketch of my next Pokemon project if my wonderful photos aren't incentive enough.

So what are you waiting for?! GO. DO IT. NOW.

Here is a video of a girl messing around with a webcam effect. It's such a simple, strange video, but I got such a good laugh out of it. Thought some of you would enjoy the oddity as well. :lol:
  • Mood: Eager
So after drawing multiple animal portraits as gifts for my family members everybody keeps telling my that animal lovers would buy my art in a heart beat, especially since I live in the rich (boring, snobby) suburb of Plano, TX. Thing is, I have no idea where to start. For people with or without experience, how did you get started or does anybody have any suggestions for local commissions or commissions in general? I would like to make some money but I am hopeless with marketing. Any tips? :nod:
