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.

A Rare Commission

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 7, 2016, 7:11 PM
  • Mood: Eager
  • Eating: Sucking on a cherry cough drop

For a slightly more pleasant topic, I've gotten a rare opportunity (and I'm talking very rare) to buy a commission from an artist that I've idolized for years.

Her work is amazing, to say the least. I think it's safe to say that she rivals Disney. Her commissions aren't cheap but they're certainly worth every penny.

And she said that she'd be happy to do one just for me! :excited:

Problem is, I can't decide what I want her to draw! :ohnoes:

I know for sure I want her to draw Terence and Rhiella. Where I'm stuck is what they should be doing, and how they should be dressed. You know how I love to show my characters in various outfits in various eras. Terence has been shown disco dancing, scuba diving, and dressing up as characters from other movies.

So many good ideas, and I can only pick one. And since this commission is so rare, I want to take advantage of it. I want it to be extra special.

What do you propose, mates?

You are, without a doubt, one of the best dA artists around and with even less of a doubt, the best friend on dA anyone could ask for!

I just have to say your art is amazing and I'm glad you're one of my watchers. Didn't realize that until I decided to see who watches me. I feel special. <3

Sure thing, matey!

I created your OC Rhiella as a mermaid in Azaleas Dolls. Is it okay if I upload it on DA? I wanted to ask you first since she's your OC.
unicorn-skydancer08 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2015
I appreciate that. As long as you're not making any money off it and you give me credit, that's fine with me.
IK16 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2015
I'm not making any money off of pics I submit of someone else's characters. I always give credit to the original creators and the doll generator used to make the pic.
unicorn-skydancer08 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2015
Then you're fine.
