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

EDITED-Updates and 2 commission slots opened!

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 20, 2015, 8:13 PM
----EDIT 1/21/15----
Well, It turns out I don't desperately  need the money as quickly as I thought after all, seeing as I had gotten what I needed just in time for the bill and such. However, I had to use all my savings on it so now I am kinda broke for a bit LOL.
So I am going to still be taking two commission slots. And possibly a few more after. Because money makes the world go 'round, and I need it.
Commissions will be Sketches only though. As I feel bad offering fully done things when I owe full commissions to two others already. Who are being wonderfully patient with me :heart:. And I am soo grateful.
I just need to choose who gets the slots based on a few things, and I wanted to give it more time to give others a chance to make offers on the slots. Especially now since I am not in such a hurry anymore.
So, the $30 full body colored sketch commissions are still open at the point in time of this journal edit. And now you can have a day or two after the offer to come up with the paypal payment, as there is no rush anymore.

Also I forgot to add, that to add another character to the image is an additional $10.
And adding shading is an additional $5.

And again, I cannot point this out enough. Please, only original characters/creations/concepts created by YOU. No fan characters allowed. I will not draw your TLK fan oc, or your Pokemon oc, or anything of the sort.

Here are some recent colored sketch examples!

Canine Character Design Auction -OPEN- by DJ88

That's all I can think of for now!

Thanks for reading, and for the interests in the commissions!

////end edit 1/21/15 ////

Woa first journal of 2015 actually. I havent posted a journal since Christmas.

So what's up with me?

Well, just about the same. Still dealing with the OCD Depression Bipolar mess that has been my "normal" since childhood.
Still havent made a doc appointment for that, but it's complicated because reasons I don't care to get into.

I have been bitten with an art-bug, so there's hoping to getting more and more art out there :)

I have taken it upon myself to watch all the Hellraiser films. I had only seen the first two originally, and until recently, never watched the others. So far? My comments are;
CAUTION- Spoilers may start here! -CAUTION

"Pinhead is the most evil, diabolical horror movie icon."
"It just ain't a party until Pinhead shows up I guess."
" I knew I'd be yelling by the time this was done and over with!"

And I don't like that I now know the origins of the Puzzle Box. Like, fine, the origin was okay I guess. Maybe. It has/had potential depends on who is looking at it. But just knowing the origin of it makes it loose it's mystery and intimidation to me. Kind of like the prequel/reboot of John Carpenter's The Thing that came out recently. You go into Carpenter's blindly, you walk into a big mystery. Soo many questions about what happened at the camp before the Thing runs into their camp in the guise of a dog. You're just thrown into a story. And I like that. But knowing the back story thanks to the reboot/prequel? Now I am just like "Oh, it's this". Instead of "OMG WHAT IS THAT?!".
That could just be me though. I like to 'head-canon think' that the box is as old as time ,and the dimension it holds, itself. With  a mysterious origin that cannot be traced. I'm just going to kind of pretend the whole Toy Maker thing didn't happen.
But seriously, the Dog Cinobite was like The Chatterer in the first one. Pretty cool looking design.
I am on the 5th one now, and so far the first three I liked. ESPECIALLY the first two. So well done. And such a dark feel to them. I am enjoying the revisiting of the ones I had already seen, and the new feeling of the ones I haven't.

End Spoilers

What else is up?
I suddenly need to make some money fairly quickly due to a bill problem thing. So...
Anyone wanna buy a Full Body Colored Sketch commission of their original character (character and concept MUST be your own creation! No fan characters!)

$30 bucks, and I'll toss in a textured/whatever/design BG or something. An extra $5 for shading. So if you want it shaded it will be $35. Paypal only, sorry, but I've very little use for DA points for RL things.

I have two slots open. So if you are interested, please comment with a link to your character in this journal!
It will not be "First come first serve". I will choose based on the character and so on like I usually do. And please only comment if you can pay right away. I need the money asap.

Here are some recent colored sketch examples!

2.---- Empty

I am also going to be making adoptables and such, because after come up with the money owed, I still need personal money of course for things.
So there's all that.
And possibly another YCH commission. I have been drawing a lot of "Cat Girls" and anthros that I think some of you may dig.

Anyways, thanks for reading!
Hope the new year is treating you guys well!

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.

 You must be woudering why I have myself as a watcher on your deviant art website. As a result, I completely admire your hard work and dedication on drawing and digital work on all your master pieces. Most importantly, I find that you are pretty cool on how you socialize with every deviant-artist on this web globe.
  For me, I will like to strongly apologize for not interacting with you and everyone else online because I turned out to be lazy and always distracted from doing what I do best. You are way better than me and I hope I can turn out to be like you who always participate on loving her artwork so much. Right now I'm continue drawing online again for this New Years and never being lazy ever again. Thank you and Kindest Regards and I hope this is enough information for you.

I know you're busy and you get this from plenty of people, but I really love
your art. And I mean ALL of it, not just the fan art. I've
actually been admiring it for a few years now, despite
only just getting an account. You have a really lovely, dark,
and detailed style. Keep up the amazing work, you have
an awesome, creative mind!
