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 Creepy Experience

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 19, 2014, 10:06 PM
  • Mood: Anxious

I love making new friends, but I DON'T like people toying with me or acting like they're hopelessly in love with me when they don't even know me.

As you've guessed, that's exactly what I've been through tonight.

Some guy on Facebook asked to be my friend, and I was in favor of it, of course. But as we chatted, he started making comments that made me very uncomfortable. He said he wanted me (and only me) to teach him more English, and that he'd be "ready for me." He said he loved me (not just liked), and that raised a red flag. It didn't appear to faze him that we were complete strangers living in separate countries.

He told me he'd never leave me and that he didn't want me to leave him.

And that's not all, folks. He had the gall to tell me that I should only chat with him on Facebook—and no one else. That proved the last straw. The last thing I told him was that whoever I talked to was none of his business; I didn't need his permission for anything. 

That was when I decided to play it safe and not only "unfriend" him, but block him and erase our conversation, too.

Don't know who he really is, and I didn't want to make any harsh assumptions.

But man, how creepy is that?

Goes to show that you never know who's watching you or trying to make a fool of you.

Almost makes me afraid to turn out the light or walk out my door.

I want to draw Moloth and his gang for Halloween. Shall I show them one at a time or put them together in one big poster? 

18 deviants said Go for the poster!
13 deviants said Why not show them one at a time first and THEN combine them?
2 deviants said One at a time


Happy birthday!~

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
