(I'm so tempted to buy the dragon myself, but I already have a steam engine train monster I can add plastic cat ears to so the role is filled ;; )
You should read each description before attempting to buy, but here's the best part of the adoptables (in my opinion),
- You get full rights to this character. No really.
- Draw it, write about it, roleplay with it, commission others to draw pictures of it, use it as a fursona!
- Feel free to change the colors / give it a solid sex or gender!
- You can resell it in the future. I'd LIKE it to be resold for the same price you bought it for, but what can I do?
- You can even pretend you made it if you roll that way.
-You get the full res flat image as a PNG."
You don't see many adoptables that come with that much freedom!
I'm thinking of raising my sketch prices by about five dollars for a single character. I need to create more income from my commissions, I'd also like a little more for the time that I've been putting into them.
Messy sketch of a single character ($20)
+$10 per additional character.
To have a sketch colored, double the amount.
Having sketches of multiple characters colored would start to look pretty pricey, but a single character sketch I think remains affordable for folks who know what they want.
I'm not yet decided on what I want to do, this requires some thought!
These cats are free to a good home and good with other cats and dogs! Click the image and see Lilleah's deviation description for more information. I am not adopting out these cats myself, just trying to give them a signal boost so they have a better chance finding a good home.
Captain Hook (not sure what his specifics are on other cats and dogs, but you could always ask Lilleah.)
Commissions may be my soul income soon and I'm considering raising my prices. I don't anticipate raising them more than about five dollars, but I wanted to give a little bit of a heads up!

I've bought and used a lot of icons from her in the past. Go have a peek! ITS GOOD STUFF.
Do you have any characters based on real people?
Kampekhannus asks, Do you have any characters based on anyone you know/met or seen in passing irl? Has anyone you haven't met (like a celebrity) ever inspired you to create a character?
To start with, naw. I don’t have any characters based on real people.
The only one that comes to mind that I think had inspiration directly from a real person was Gin, who is very ‘Vincent Price’, but that’s a stretch, and a celebrity. I draw inspiration mostly from things I like. Subjects, animals, tropes, etc. And cartoons. SO MUCH CARTOONS. Fictional characters tend to inspire more fictional characters, and I definitely have a couple who started with Wreck it Ralph and evolved into their own thing (Jim and Li, believe it or not, started with Ralph). You can see how different those two characters are from their source of inspiration.
Sometimes I see an article of clothing or something that catches my eye and I think ‘HMM, I could build on that’, but even then I don’t use exactly what inspired me. I like to go my own road! If my characters have any ‘reality’ in them I think it’s mostly pieces of me and my interests, but still pretty distant.
I’ve never met any Gales, Hermans or Jackys in person, though Laura swears she saw Gale at an Olive Garden in Florida.
What inspires you to draw?
givemepaperandpen asks, What is the thing that inspires you the most to write/draw? I mean like what is it that excites and inspires you? Other art? Other works? etc
I like seeing what the characters are up to, how they interact, etc. If it weren’t for OCs I’m not sure if I’d be as interested in making art, it’s all about putting them to paper and bringing what they’re experiencing to light. I like making pretty shapes and composition too, but I seem to spend most of my time just appreciating that my OCs can entertain me with their adventures while I'm doing something hum drum like cleaning.
I take inspiration from whatever entertains me. Lots of mythology! History, nature, etc. I think mythology excites me most. I can't see a good myth and not want that in my story. Researching for characters often opens possibilities up for a lot of other creations.
Was changing to digital art difficult?
adjutantninox asks, You paint at the pc, right? Was the change difficult? I try someimes, but its muuuch easier for me to use the classic pencil :/
It was tricky at first. I think it started when I realized I could make money faster doing digital icons, so I used that to practice doing lineart and get a feel for it. I had already been coloring digitally for a long time. Learning to draw digitally is just a matter of learning to draw comfortably with a tablet, which is crazy frustrating at first but gets easier.
pixie-blogs asks, Why did you choose this name? :3
At the time I was heavily reading ancient European history and my favorite subjects were the Greeks and Celts. I still find them interesting, so the name has stayed relevant to me.
What part of the body do you start sketching with first?
kittybumbum asks, When sketching, what part of the body do you usually start with first?
Definitely the head, but as I've advanced as an artist drawing usually starts with a fullbody gesture before I move onto detailing. I’ve usually roughed the entire figure out, even if it just in stick lines, before I start drawing eyes and noses.
Ever considered doing a mini-comic series?
byzantine-gangsters asks, Have you ever considered doing a mini comic series? Like the panels you’ve been doing but more consistent(if that’s the right word…)?
I’d like to! Something. Someday. Casual seems to be the best thing for me. I don’t think I would dedicate the time to a complete webcomic (which takes as much time as a day job, and years), which is why I’ve been so willing to share the details, and often spoilers of their story on tumblr. A mini-comic would be doable, I think. What I’ve done up to this point has been practice with scenes I’m not even sure belong in the story!
A shorter answer would be yes, but I'm not sure when or what story or to what completeness.
Just a heads up if there's old comments/whatever that you want a chance to save first.
I'm purging because so much of it is outdated information or just not relevant.
Consider both words a place holder until I decide on something permanent. It might be confusing for a while, but I'll try to keep things updated.
I have my reasons.
I'm not saying my art is bad, I don't think it is, and I know that's a big taboo among artists, but sometimes you gotta step back and laugh at your areas that need improvement. And there ain't nothin' wrong with that.
I'm not sure what the future holds but for now I can't cope with just being alone with my thoughts and don't feel I have any choice but to fall back into old habits and keep drawing. I'm stuck in a loop. I'm sorry for my behavior. I'm just doing what I can and trying to heal. This is a scary, confusing situation for me.
So there's a couple new questions that have been answered. That's pretty much it.
Link me to some fashion and I will maybe draw Jacky, Gale or Herman in something loosely inspired by it. I need some new OC outfits.
I went people watching at walmart to think of new clothes but in hindsight that was in vain unless I’m after tshirts and pajamas.
It seems has already given me some points! Hurrah!
I need to renew my DA subscription. I was a dope and let it expire. I only need one month. I can get a full subscription after pay day but I need access to one of its features right now. I could do a messy sketch of an OC for five dollars worth of DA points?</span>
What is Fantasy-Xchange?
Before I link you, lets talk about what Fantasy-Xchange is. If memory serves me, Fantasy-Xchange is a monthly art exchange with a fantasy theme. Types of exchange vary from month to month, sometimes there's a theme, sometimes it's just a sketch or colored round. It changes periodically to keep things fresh.
How does the group define 'fantasy'? Do my characters quality?
Here's a quote of the front page,
" We define fantasy as anything that does not exist in the real world. Our definition can include any mythological creature, magical being, original animal species, alien, anthro, and so on.
We will not allow the following types of characters in our exchange:
But we will ignore this rule if the character lives in a fantasy or supernatural world.
We want to see several colored pictures with detailed backgrounds in your gallery. Versatility in drawing is a plus as well (can you draw one species well or are you good at drawing everything?). If you've uploaded a ton of sketches and quicker works to your gallery, please make sure to link us to some of your detailed pictures in your membership request.
You will only have a month or two to complete a picture for one of our exchanges. If it takes you longer than a month to complete a colored piece, you might want to hold off on applying."
Read the rules!
Before attempting to participate, please visit the group's rules page. fantasy-xchange.deviantart.com…
Join the group and wait for approval before attempting to participate.
You MUST join before you can participate in the exchanges. There is a quality bar, as most groups have, but it is set reasonably.
You MUST join the group and await approval before signing up for an exchange, but here is a link to the most recent sign up journal (September round).
Not this journal, but there's a blurb on my front page greekceltic.deviantart.com/ under the possum icon to the right. It has a lot of useful information about art usage, gift art and projects. I'll sort it and add to it as time goes by, but it should be there if you need a quick question answered.
