What You Need to Know

:bulletred: Like everyone else on DA, I retain the right to draw (and write) whatever I please, so long as I remain within certain boundaries. On that account, don't go around telling me what I can and can't draw. I don't tell YOU people what to draw. If you don't like my art (or my stories), no one said you had to watch me in the first place.

:bulletred: I accept constructive criticism on my work. But I do NOT tolerate flames. It's just a waste of your time, and it does no one any good. I can handle being told where improvement could be used and how the piece could be better, but don't just trash me and my art, saying "oh, this sucks" or "you have no talent". Like the saying goes, if you can't say something nice, don't bother saying anything at all.

:bulletred: Lately, people have been asking me if it's okay that they draw my OC, Terence. I have no objection to anyone drawing (or writing about) my unicorn/human character, or any of my original characters. I love receiving gift art. The only rules are that you credit me (I'm a nice person, for the most part; but stealing my art is a surefire way to get on my bad side!), that you show me what you've done so I can check it out, and you do not (I repeat, do NOT) try to make any money off my character behind my back. Dishonesty is not worth the few measly dollars you manage to scrounge from it.

:bulletred: I am a very spiritual person, and I am not afraid to show it. I am not trying to be overly preachy, or make anybody look bad. I am only sharing what I personally believe in; whether or not you agree with me is your decision, not mine. I don't expect you to agree with me, but I do expect you to be kind and considerate of me. Even if we don't share the same beliefs, we can still be polite to each other. Respect me, and I'll respect you.

:bulletred: I don't mind making art for other people. But once I get a little more caught up with my projects, I'm going to take a little vacation from free requests. I don't want to make more promises than I can deliver, don't want to do more than I have the time and strength to do. I may be generous, but I don't want to develop an ulcer. If you want something from me, don't just come right up in my face and demand "draw this, draw that". Ask me nicely, and I may consider it. I'll be doing trades as well, and commissions are now available.

:bulletred: The prices of the commissions vary. You'll have to talk to me, and we'll settle on a reasonable price. It will depend on how many characters you want, and how detailed you want it. For every picture, no matter who is in it or how complex it is, it will cost you $5 extra for full color. I refuse to do any characters that are already copyrighted to someone else, without prior consent. I'll be more than happy to do your own OC, or even include Terence in the mix.

:bulletred: Whether I'm doing commissions, trades, or requests, the standard is the same: I refuse to draw anything involving sex (I don't mind some kissing, but NO French kissing or necking), nudity, excessive gore, or anything that promotes hate or shames another individual or country.

:bulletred: And one more thing: Terence and Tumnus are NOT homosexual. Yes, they love each other, but in a purely brotherly manner. They are not gay, in any way.

Journal History

Another Year Over...

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 31, 2016, 8:30 PM
  • Listening to: Happy Xmas (War is Over)


...and a new one just begun.

I won't lie about 2016 being a tough year, but I also won't go so far as to say it was ALL crap. There are plenty of good things to be said about this year, too.

2017 will no doubt be far from perfect, but here's hoping that there will be more good things to say about it than bad.

I do have a few resolutions, and I'm keeping them reasonable. Mostly I resolve to read more and make more traditional art, and to try to finish at least one manuscript. I may try to work on my weight a little, too.

I also have a theme. For 2016, it was "Create."

For 2017, it will be "Kindness."

See you all next year, mateys! Much love to each and every one of you. :blowkiss:

Prayer List (Updated)

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 13, 2011, 8:22 PM


"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it, and it will be yours."
~ Mark 11:24 (NIV)


I thought I'd take a leaf out of mouselady's book and make a little prayer list all my own. Like the old saying goes, you can never have too many prayers. This will be updated on a fairly regular basis, depending on how many requests I get. If you know anyone who could use a bit of heavenly aid, don't hesitate to let me know.

And look at this! :wow: Someone was inspired by this prayer journal and put this beautiful stamp together:

Multiple Prayers Stamp by Vallhund-Abstraktion

:bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: 2017 UPDATE :bulletblue: :bulletblue: :bulletblue: With some exceptions, I removed the old prayer requests in order to make room for the new ones. As always, I'm open to requests of any kind, whatever the situation.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

Pray for those affected by the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

Pray for those affected by the 2015 mass shootings in San Bernardino, California.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

Pray for those affected by the tragic earthquake in Nepal on April 25, 2015.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

Pray for those who have been affected in all the ghastly terror attacks and natural disasters of 2015 and 2016. You know what they are.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

Please pray for the souls of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre on December 14, 2012, along with their families and friends who were left behind. A complete list of the names and ages can be found here: unicorn-skydancer08.deviantart…

:floating: :floating: :floating:

I, myself, request a few prayers if you'd be so kind. My dad passed away, there's been a betrayal in the family, and just so many other things in my life seem so bound and determined to go wrong.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

sonicfighter just lost his dad.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

:star: Winged-Horse, formerly known as Z1ven :star:

Sadly, Ziven is no longer with us. Please pray for the repose of his soul and for the comfort and healing of his friends and family. He was an inspiration and a good friend to those who knew him, and he will be dearly missed.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

:star: Vallhund-Abstraktion :star:

Another dear friend who has passed on. She was a sweet, spunky girl, a rare flower whose season was all too brief. Pray that she may rest in peace, and that her loved ones will be strengthened.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

:star: :iconshaquavara: :star:

All hell has broken loose in her life and she just gets hammered with one severe blow after another. I'm worried about her.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

:star: :iconstarimo: :star:

As if she didn't have enough to deal with, her dad has just been placed in hospice, and she already lost her mom quite recently.



:floating: :floating: :floating:

:star: :iconicehoovesacres: :star:

Her dad started chemo treatment.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

:star: :iconspicy-demon: :star:

She recently lost her grandmother and now her mother may not be around for much longer.

:floating: :floating: :floating:

:star: :iconvexfox: :star:

She has just received a grim diagnosis: You really really need to read this
