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

2017 Beauty and the Beast

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 21, 2017, 5:56 PM


Well, just got back from the movies. Went with my family and a good friend to see "you know what."

I bet you've heard everything about that movie by now, and I won't spoil it for those who have yet to see it. I'll just say that, while I personally think the 1991 cartoon is better, the 2017 live-action still exceeded expectations.

For those of you already familiar with the 1991 version, you can guess how 90% of the 2017 version goes. Let's just say they made just enough tweaks and added just enough fresh songs to save it from becoming a total carbon copy.

Again, I'll spare you the details, but I really appreciate that they made Emma Watson's Belle more independent and resourceful; she only needed saving when she honestly couldn't do anything else for herself and she never took a shred of crap from anyone.

I think Lumiere was better in this one, but I prefer the animated Cogsworth. The only thing about this Cogsworth that really appealed to me was Ian McKellen's voicework.

But the best part of all was the Beast. Here, he's given a lot more depth, more charisma, and more sympathy. The way they "animated" him was pretty impressive, too. The best scene (and best song) of them all, by far, was his solo, "Forevermore." I plan to buy a copy of that song for my personal collection.

Overall, I'd rate this movie an 8 out of 10. I wouldn't mind owning both DVDs.

Even if the movie had fallen flat on its face, it was still a nice little escape. It's always nice to see a movie in the theater. I think I bought too much popcorn, though; I've barely made a dent in it.

Not able to get a ride home yet, and it's getting dark and I'm too tired and achy to walk. So I'm having my dinner in the break room.
You Raise Me Up
:music: When I am down,
And oh, my soul so weary,
When troubles come
And my heart burdened be,

Then I am still
And wait here in the silence
Until you come
And sit awhile with me

You raise me up
So I can stand on mountains
You raise me up
To walk on stormy seas
I am strong
When I am on your shoulders
You raise me up
To more than I can be

You raise me up
So I can stand on mountains
You raise me up
To walk on stormy seas
I am strong
When I am on your shoulders
You raise me up
To more than I can be

You raise me up (up)
So I can stand on mountains (stand on mountains)
You raise me up
To walk on stormy seas (stormy seas)
I am strong
When I am on your shoulders
You raise me up
To more than I can be

You raise me up (up)
So I can stand on mountains (stand on mountains)
You raise me up
To walk on stormy seas (stormy seas)
I am strong
When I am on your shoulders
You raise me up
To more than I can be

You raise me up
To more than I can be...
:music:

That must have been a nasty shock, to discover the body had disappeared...and a most wondrous joy to discover the reason why the tomb was deserted.

I imagine that was a very solemn occasion for all of the real people involved. What Joseph of Arimathea did was an extremely noble gesture.

I actually drew a picture of Terence witnessing the Crucifixion, a long time ago. (It's buried somewhere among my ancient art.) It feels wonderful to depict him in this scene again, with slightly more appropriate attire this time.

I would have looked away, too.

I hope the Lilo and Stitch stories with Pinocchio come in. It's been years for waiting for them.

At least I got a response from somebody. All I've gotten over the past few weeks are stupid Watch messages.

Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I had an idea that I wanted to share with you. Have you ever considered doing some pictures of Terence and Rhiella in the Transformers Animated universe? I just thought it'd be a fun crossover to do. If you don't want to do it, or are too busy, I understand.
