Advertisements -Help these people out?-


Updated 1/22/15

I'm always advertising people in my journals and or polls who actually need money for reasons other than "oh I wanna buy this gadget or this gadget or this one!"
I mean, good luck to those things, sure. Whatever makes you happy. But I am talking people who need help raising money for medical reasons, or to raise money to get a beloved pet here to there. Or needing help to pay the bills.... Not for Ipods or laptops. Ipads, or a new gaming system. People who need it. Well, I'll talk circles around the reason for making this widget, So I am just going to add some people I am advertising here.
Here we go;

The following person/people probably could use your help. I am sure commissions, donating, or spreading the word would help them out.

---- Nobody needs thangs!... If you need an advertisment, let me know! ----

If you are on this list, and no longer need to be. Or just don't wish to be.
Or if you know someone who should be featured on here. OR! If you'd like to be featured here.
Note me and let me know, k?

Good luck to you guys, I hope you get what you need :hug:

Hmm.....TLK related journal This isn't going to be a whiny, soap box journal about art theft... No no.... And please don't turn the comments section into that.
And if there is calling out and or arguing in the comments section. I'll hide your comments. This is not an "angry rant" journal. Just an, informative journal. Me telling you guys some things.
And please....Do NOT go white knighting for me. Do NOT troll people.  Do NOT go calling names and profanities at others. Thank you for wanting to stick up for me..... But it gets you no where, it can just be so rude. I know a lot of you do not like art/character theft. I don't either. But please. I do not want to see any drama over this. Often times when someone takes a character or art, they may not know that they're doing anything wrong. And they're not doing it just to be internet villains. Perhaps they find images off Google or other websites that re-post without the permission of the original artists. And may not see our "Do not use this picture" messag
EDIT 1-Some stuff (common QnA )These are some common questions I've been getting recently. So I'll answer them here.
1. Commissions/Prices???
I am not open for commissions and do not know when I'll be open again. And When I do open, I may have changed the prices of my commissions.
2. Can I make a base of your art?
No, no you may not make a base of my art. It is not an official screenshot of a film (even though I think that shouldn't be allowed either) And I view that as a high form of art theft. What you're basically doing is making a lineart out of something that someone else worked hard on, and then posting it for loads of other people to take, alter, and color. Tracing..... that's all it is. TRACING. What takes us hours to make only takes a tracer 15-30 mins... minus  a BG. Assuming they don't steal that as well. It shows a lack of talent and respect towards a fellow artist when you just take an image and make a base without asking. However it shows respect if you ASK to make a base out of
Getting movie Colors for TLK styled characters?WELL!!!
I have 2 notes and a comment or two asking how I get movie colors. So, instead of repeating myself, I figured I'd just make a journal about it. To share with everyone all at once! This can be a long one.... so bare with me.
THIS IS ALL THE RESULT OF MY PERSONAL PRACTICE AND OBSERVATIONS OF THE LION KING STYLE AND FILM. These methods and observations  may vary from your own observations, just do some trial and error. and good luck to it!
This could also possibly work for any other animal character you want to create. Color tone wise. not just for TLK
Some of the tips here can be obtained by certain digital art programs. I am personally familiar with Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop Elements 4. Anything else? You might have to look up a tutorial online. Remember, Google and or YouTube can be an artist's best friend these days! So many references, tutorials, and tips!
Guys, let me try to explain this, it is not that difficult to try and get your movie colors on your o
art tips?        I get asked a lot to make tutorials, to teach people this or that when it comes to art, or a certain thing I like to draw.
I'm not a teacher, or an expert guys. I am just some random chick who likes to draw a lot and who practices drawing a lot. I don't think I would be very good at teaching or explaining. I cannot give out information like a teacher would. On paws or anatomy. I am no expert. However, I do give advice though, and my advice is usually the same.
If you want to draw a certain animal, research the animal. Watch documentaries, look up anatomy sketches, and photographs that inspire you. Even inspiring art, something that puts you in the mindset and gives you understanding of the animal. Research the animal inside and out to get the full understanding of it's anatomy, movements, attitude, weight, expressions, body language, markings, proportions, everything. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Learn it all. And then sketch and sketch an

How do YOU pronounce \"Uru\" ? (A.k.a Mufasa and Scar\'s Mother) It\'s weird that I made a TLK related poll, but whatever, I do what I want.

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 13, 2015, 3:32 PM
Just  a quick journal, covering a few things.... and stuff.

:bulletblack: 1. I had been really "on and off" lately with uploading artwork. I get sudden bursts of inspiration for days, and then slumps of "ehhhh" that also lasts for days, or weeks. These slumps are brought on by anything from lack of inspiration, to basically being sick. Which I kind of am. I wasn't feeling well for like a week, and then got smacked with a cold/cough or whatever. I just want to roll up in a ball and sleep it off. But I am feeling a bit better, so, sorry to those who I owe art to. And again, I cannot stress it enough, thank you for being soo patient with me. I hardly deserve you guys.

:bulletblack: 2. In my last journal I had offered two full bodied, colored sketch commission slots. I have not forgotten about those, and am going to look at the offers from that journal, talk to a few people about the characters, and make the decisions and such. Sorry for leaving those interested in those commissions "hanging" without an explanation. I am going to get on that. And possibly do  Y.C.H commission, and or sell a character design or two, And so on and so forth. I do need to make some money to like, survive and stuff. So yeah. There's that.

:bulletblack: 3. This.... is not aimed at anyone. Because I have had several people ask me these questions of the years, and I just want to give the answers here once again. And yes, I do feel like I am beating a dead horse at this point in even talking about these things.

Question 1,
Can you teach me/us to draw?
I cannot stress this enough, I really, REALLY don't feel like I could be a very good teacher when it comes to art. I don't feel I'd be very good at holding one's hand, and walking them through how to draw a certain style, or whatnot, line for line. I know I had tried my hand at making Thylacine notes/tutorials here and there, but that's different. I was sharing things I had learned as I went a long. And they were just little sketches with little notes, not a step by step on how to draw the animals..... so I don't think I would be very good at making tutorials.  I can tell you what I do in order to learn,  I can give you hints in the directions to go in terms of research and stuff to look at. But I don't think I will tell you how to draw a thing line for line. Because all artists are different. We are all our own little weird creatures, who take in information/learning curves in different ways. So please, do not ask me for drawing tutorials. There are hundreds of artists out there, who are just as good, if not WAY better than I when it comes to art, and the explanation of art/how to make art. All you need to do to find those tutorials, is to look them up on various websites. Or you can go old-school, and grab some art books.
I had read in a book once, I think, (and I hope I don't butcher this quote) , that went along the lines of this;
 " If you wish to draw an animal/subject... all you must do is simply look at the animal/subject, and figure out what makes it " it " . What is the essence of the creature. What quality makes it the individual that it is? And once you've figured out the essence or quality of the subject, try to translate/capture that in your artwork. How do YOU see it? What parts of its character/anatomy stick out to you the most, what makes it it in your artistic eyes? " .
In other words, just look at things, research things, and practice drawing the things. No matter what it is, all you need to do, is do some research. I had actually written a LONG journal about this a long while ago. And I always link people to this journal when they ask me to teach them to draw. Also, furthermore, I am not an artistic expert. I am not a qualified teacher. I am just some weird chick who likes to draw whatever my brain comes up with. That's it.
Anyways, here is the journal I had mentioned. I hope it helps/inspires some of you to start researching and practicing . And I wish you luck on your artistic journeys.

Question(s) 2;
"When are you going to upload TLK art again?". "Why no TLK art?".
......Talk about beating a dead horse. How many times do I have to say what's what with this topic, eh? LOL!
-1. Yes, I have stopped uploading TLK artwork. Why? Lots of reasons, one reason being drama and theft in the fandom/online community. It's annoying. I haven't uploaded in years and I am STILL dealing with it. I do not get as mad as I used to get. I kind of go along with the motions of the situations at this point. Other reasons for not uploading it? I do not own TLK, I had no hand in creating anything official with TLK/Disney regarding TLK, images characters back-story and whatever the heck. It's not mine. Is it fun to draw? Yes. Do I like being active in the fandom and sharing art and stories? YES. I MISS IT! Will I be uploading anything online any time soon? ..... PROBABLY NOT! And don't suggest I make a tumblr and give certain people passwords and only share with certain people. I will not be doing that. Also.... I stopped because. Hey, yo, guess what, I am more than just a "Fan-artist" of pop-culture/animated films/franchises and licenses that I had nothing to do with. I do draw my own things, and I do want to work more on my own things. I am more than a fan-artist. As "type-casted" as I have become with it.

-2. Though I no longer upload it, I actually, have not stopped drawing TLK. I still draw it every now and then. I have come up with character designs, background stories/concepts. More family members and so on and so forth. It's fun to play around with. I still do it.  And there are some things I most certainly want to share. Will I ever share them? Again, probably not. BUT. You never know. One day I may just decide to upload all of the things. But just do not count on it. And please stop asking for it. Again. I am more than just a "fan-artist".

:bulletblack: 4. My friend :iconburi288: is kinda sorta in need of moneis for reasons. She will probably explain it to you if you want to ask her. I don't know what I can or cannot say about it. It basically is that she needs major financial help to pay for her living situation. Again, ask her if you want. She is going to start a "gofundme" for her situation. And as soon as she has that set up, I will advertise that as well.
 She will accept either donations, or commissions (she makes adorable plushies, you should buy some ).
Pacman Pancakes *commission* by Buri288*Custom* Red Velvet w/ White Swirl Sea Pancake by Buri288 *Custom* Cinnamon Roll Sea Pancake by Buri288 Chocolate Chocolate Chip Sea Pancake by Buri288…
So, yeah. Please drop her a message if you are interested, and or spread the word and such to help her out. Get the word out and such. Any little bit helps.
Here is a link to her current Sea Pancake Plushie Prices;
SEA PANCAKE COMMISSIONS (Updated 6/17)The Sea Pancake plushies I make are custom made to order.  They can be made using any color felt currently available to me, whether a realistic flavor or completely random.  If business picks up enough, I'll be able to access a wider variety of colors through Etsy sellers but for the time being, any felt sold at craft and retail stores is what I work with.
Past commission designs can be seen in this folder of my gallery and the previous commission journal as well as the Facebook page.
They currently sell as follows:
Small Pancakes (around 6" from fin tip to fin tip): $15 USD
Large Pancakes (around 9" from fin tip to fin tip): $20 USD
Completion and shipping out takes usually somewhere between 1-2 weeks (depending on my work schedule and anything else I have that comes up).  Shipping outside th

I don't think I have anything else to say/update you guys with.

I hope you're all having a good day/night/whatever.
And or HAPPY HALF PRICED CHOCOLATES days to those who benefit from the sales of the leftover goodies of Valentine's Day.

Enjoy all. Stay weird :heart:

Hello there!
My name is Danielle.

I like to draw.
I like to watch movies and documentaries.

I love animation, and wouldn't mind working in the field of animation in some way shape or form. (Disney... <3 )

I'm a lover of horror films.
I have an interest in special effects makeup and designs.( I wouldn't mind that as a career path either.)

In my gallery you may find drawings of animals, creatures, women, horror things, and cats. Because I like cats.

I may be a little weird or strange, but hey, normalcy can be quite a boring existence.

If you'd like to know anything else, don't hesitate to ask.

I won't bite.

Hola, soy dueña de un foro sobre TLK en español, recientemente hemos tenido problemas con artistas debido al uso de arte recoloreado por parte de los integrantes más jóvenes del foro, quería preguntarte ¿si deseas unirte a una campaña para crear consciencia acerca de las recoloreaciones en el fandom latino de TLK? El staff esta dispuesto a eliminar arte que se pida pero para que esto sea una acción a largo plazo necesitamos que los artistas digan su opinión de forma sencilla y amable sobre como se sienten acercan del uso del recoloreo y porque razones no se debe hacer, así los más jóvenes sabrán porque no deben usar el arte de otros.
Gracias por su atención, si no puedes participar no hay problema y perdón por mi ingles, uso traductor.

Hi, I own a forum on TLK in spanish, we have recently had problems with artists due to use of art recoloured by the younger members of the forum, I wanted to ask if you would you like to join a campaign to raise awareness about recoloreaciones in the Latin TLK fandom? The staff is willing to eliminate art that prompted but for this to be a long-term action that artists need to tell your opinion in a simple and friendly way about how they feel close to the use of recoloreo and for reasons not to do so younger know that should not use the art of others.
Thank you for your attention, if you can not participate no problem and sorry for my english, I use translator.
