Random Favourites




I need to finish those I already have.. sorry

Read This Before You Ask, please!

Frequently Asked Questions:

I get a lot of questions in comments and notes, and most of them are the same. SO - if you have a question for me; before you ask me, read this and see if I can answer some of your questions here first. If this doesn't answer your question, then you can contact me.

Questions regarding my art:

Q: Can I trace your art / re-color them / color your lineart / make my own version of your art / post it somewhere else, like on my website or facebook / use your art as my icon or avatar ?

A: No. Simple as that. Not even if you give me credit or link back to my page. I appreciate when people ask first, but the answer is still no. Sorry if this sounds mean, but those are drawings I made myself, and I will encourage you to make your own drawings, too. Not use the work of others in any of the ways mentioned above. Be creative, and create your own art!
And do not repost my art elsewhere, please.

Q: Can I draw fan art of your characters?

A: Sure you can! :D I really love getting fan art! Just make sure you give me credit for the character and link back to my page! :)

Q: Do you do art trades or requests?

A: Sorry, but I don't. Simply because I don't have time to give out loads of free drawings. Free drawings are for very close friends, family, or people I for some reason feel like giving art to. But usually just people close to me in real life.

Questions regarding my novel, "SPIKE":

Q: Where can I find it?

A: In my Gallery, in one of the folders on the left side. Or here:…

Q: Where can I read more?

A: I stopped posting chapters because I want to try and get it published. And I'm sorry about not posting more chapters.

Q: When will it be published?

A: I don't even know IF it's gonna be published ^^; so this is a question I can't answer yet. All I can say, is that in one way or another, when the novel is done, you will get to read it somehow.

Questions regarding my Livestream sessions:

Q: what's the link to your channel?


Q: when do you livestream?

A: I don't schedule my Livestream sessions, I just go online if I'm drawing something and feel like sharing it. I also go online sometimes just to talk. I announce when I'm online through my Journal Entries. When I'm offline, that Journal Entry will either be edited or deleted.

Questions regarding other things:

Q: what program do you use to draw with?

A: Adobe Photoshop CS3 for coloring, and sometimes Manga Studio for lineart and making comics and such. But I mainly use Photoshop.

Q: What kind of tablet do you use?

A: a Wacom Intuos Pro, Medium sized, special edition (the only thing special about it is that it's silver-colored on the top and bottom part of the "frame" ;) ).

Q: Do you ever draw traditionally?

A: Yes! :) I do that a lot! I use loads of different mediums to draw traditionally with. Like mechanical pencils, pigment liners, ballpoint pens, Copic Sketch markers, brush nib pens (or whatever those are called), um... crayons? XD I use a lot of different things to draw with :)
I also paint stuff from time to time.

Q: Can we be friends?

A: I don't know... I mean, making friends is nice, but I'm not very good at keeping contact. Also, I need time to get to know a person. You can't just decide to be friends, y'know? At least it doesn't work that way with me... ^^; But thanks for asking! :hug:

Regarding Clubs:
I appreciate invites to clubs or when someone wants to submit my art to their club, however I do not want my art to be spread around on other places than my account, or my other account on other pages if I should choose to submit them there. I am a proud member of two clubs, and I chose to ask to be a member myself. So if I want to join a club, I'll find and ask that club myself. But as a general rule; I do not want my Anthro art to be submitted to any groups. Photos, ID's and Plague Doctor stuff I might accept being submitted to groups, but again; not my anthro work.

hey, got a minute?

help spread awareness

-It'll be over soon- by oomizuao

just a little box to try and spread awareness of sexual abuse and child abuse.
The deviation above is drawn by me, and the Artist's Comment contains some of my views on this subject, and how I want to help the victims the way I can - through art and through spreading awareness, letting them know someone cares.
Hopefully, more awareness on the subject, getting more people aware that these things actually happen to millions of children on a daily basis, will increase the chances of the victims getting help, and hopefully break the silence.

Livestream (off)

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 18, 2014, 1:16 PM


I've finally found time and inspiration to draw my own stuff, so I'll be online on Livestream for a bit now, doodling and drawing and hopefully coloring :D

Hii :3
I just wanted to say, that you're the best artist EVER. Your art is just awesome. I love how you do the lines and the shading. And of course I do like the content of your art.! All Spike related things are just great and kinda deep. By the way the novel is awesome, I read it about 10 timess and hope sooo much it'll be published soon. The storyline is full of emotions. I love the characters, especially Spike even if I can identify more with Sam. And there is Saunders, who is exactly like my dad by the way xD 
Well, To cut a long story short; I'm so glad I found your account on DA and I really hope your Novel (written and graphic :33) will get published soon! When it is, you can be shure I'm gnaa buy it! However what I actually wanted to say is; I made a fanart of Spike (and I'm sorry for putting one of your quotes on it ;_;). I hope you like it (:  -->…
It sholud represent the hospital szene, when spike escapes over night o:
Have a nice day and (even if it's late here anyway) HAPPY EASTER :hug:

Quick question: Have you ever thought of or have drawn a character that was a really awkward animal like a tapir or an elephant?
Here's a picture someone made. From the thumbnail, I thought it was Spike for a moment, but it wasn't. The emotion in the picture is nice though. Just thought you might be interested in it.…
Do you have a kickstarter project or something to that effect? I really want to help make your novel a reality. You are a very talented artist and writer, and I'd love to make a contribution.
