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

Christmas in October

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 24, 2014, 6:12 PM
  • Mood: Christmas Spirited
  • Listening to: Christmas music

Yes, you read right. They're playing holiday tunes on the radio right now. While our house is filled with pumpkins and black cats, the air is filled with "Carol of the Bells" and "We Need a Little Christmas" and "There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays."

This time, though, I don't mind at all.


Because one little boy won't live to celebrate this Christmas, so they're celebrating it right now.

They're even calling our radio station "Ethan's Christmas Station."

Read the incredibly sad, incredibly sweet story for yourselves.…

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

You know that God hates all magic as well as witchcraft and sorcery cause they violates God's law. I believe that unicorns are evil cause they practice magic, which God despises. I know that God want us to know mercy and not to murder, but sometime, death is the only mercy. Also, there's a difference between miracles and magic.

Excuse me, but unicorns exist purely in the imagination. It's a work of fiction, for crying out loud. C.S. Lewis, a dedicated Christian, has unicorns and magic in his Narnia series and no one makes a fuss about that. I think you're going a little overboard with this.

Furthermore, what makes you think you know what God hates or if He even hates at all?
sonicfighter Featured By Owner 1 day ago
Cause it's written in the Scriptures as said in Deuteronomy 18:10-13 and Romans 1:18-21. Magic is the work of Satan. It's the truth.

Sure, we don't indulge in that stuff, but there's no harm in reading and enjoying fantasy books. Most of us are smart enough to know the difference between fiction and reality.

Furthermore, the unicorn is also depicted as a Christian symbol. Read the following for yourself:…
