Happy new 2014 to all!

Unfortunately, I must bring attention to something that's happened beyond my control, my current laptop which I have full free access to and do most of my artwork on has gone out of commission - which I mean is, it's DEAD.

That means, all of my current and future digital projects including the commissions I still owe are being put on hiatus until I can gain the funds I need to get a replacement. I'm so very sorry for everyone who is still waiting on me, I really am. I could not have forseen this.

I'm looking into hopefully gaining access to a job at the moment that can help me earn what I need. In meantime, I'll be around for contact whenever I can online.

I'll still be rather active art traditionally wise so if anyone wants to help me out, I'm offering greyscale pencil drawings on commission that I can still scan and share online for at least $14 starting price wise with an additional $4 per character. Contact me via PM/Note

Again, thank you for your patience and understanding, again I'm very sorry about this.
GUYS GUESS WHAT

THAT'S RIGHT - MY COMIC NOW HAS A TUMBLR THING

azusecondgeneration.tumblr.com…

the tumblr is geared towards alerting watchers about comic updates, answering questions about the comic, and maybe even some bonus trivia fun!
Dumb title limits not allowing &!

if you enjoy the Second Generation series or always has been curious about it, this is a good time to ask! Not just those 4 gals, but the whole comic in general too so that includes any character that's appeared in SG thus far and the story/process behind its making.

I'm open for them all this weekend~ You can just post messages here or ask me at my tumblr: cartoonyworld.tumblr.com/
My friend :iconfunakounasoul: is in need of help, details in her journal: fav.me/d61gr2m

Anyone watching me that might like commissioning artists, please do help her out if you can! She does some really great art, so she won't disappoint!

Thank you for your time
Been a while since I updated huh? I'm really bad at keeping things current and up to date


I expect to finish my queue sometime this weekend so I can reopen for halloween themed commissions or just normal ones. Additionally I've updated my price sheet and TOS regarding prices and comic options. Look forward to a journal when I announce open slots again!

cartoonlion.deviantart.com/jou…

cartoonlion.deviantart.com/art…

I have raised my prices a bit and I can't freely offer my services for comics as I could before although I'm not abandoning that option completely, people are free to tell me their comic ideas for commission services and I will consider them carefully. Just keep in mind, if I do accept, prices for comics are always variable.
I recently raised some prices concerning sketch and chibi commission for future reference: Commission Price Sheet by cartoonlion

Still not open yet but I should confess I've been in a horrible slump lately so I haven't been feeling inspired to work on art, I apologize!

I'm down to about 3 commissions left currently, they will be done within time rest assured people who are still waiting! After I'm finally done with those...well I don't know yet, but I do have some plans to work on personal projects as well something that'll hopefully help me improve as an artist in the commission field when time comes.
This is going to be bit text heavy, bear with me

Commission Price  sheet: cartoonlion.deviantart.com/art…

Contact & Information:

Feel free to contact me via note on  Deviantart for details and questions!   I only accept paypal payments. All payments are to be in USD (dollars) and upfront. I will only add it to my work list/queue once it has been paid for.

When doing commissions with me please contact me via note and discuss the content/subject/scene you want me to draw as well as the art style/stage (lineart, chibi, full color, etc.) you would like me to draw it in. After approval, you should also be prepared to give your paypal address so I can bill you (this is to ensure the safety of customers and myself) and pay upfront.  

What I can Draw: Humans, feral/animals, anthros, Pokemon, My Little Pony, female/male,  all ages, Orignal Characters and existing characters in media - video games, movies, shows, comics, etc. (provided I have references to work with) I love designing characters as well!

Pretty much a lot of things I'm comfortable with drawing!

What I cannot draw/WILL NOT DRAW: Mechas, politics, hate art, if you have a subject in mind not listed here - feel free to note me about it and we will see if I can do it or not.

I have the right to refuse a commission if I find the subject to be something too uncomfortable for me to draw. I don't want to be put in a position where my ability to give you a quality piece of work wouldn't be guaranteed. My goal is to make all my commissioners happy and satisfied.

Since comics take longer than usual art pieces because of how it is more complicated I have a limit on how many I can take at once. Thus their slots are counted separately from other art pieces.


If you're interested in commissioning me for more than one picture at once, I allow up to 3 pieces per customer and each one counts as a slot.
When commissioning pieces involving original characters, if you want me to draw an OC that belongs to another person, please ensure you have the permission to use that OC.

I livestream too sometimes! If you're interested in my streaming your commission, let's talk about it and I can set a date. Additionally I will be able to do quick fixes live that way if needed rather than after it's finished.

If you want to update from a previous commission I did for you to the next stage (from lineart to flat color and finally to full color) let me know! One stage is only $10, Two stages is $20.

I will round commissions costs for example if $68 then it will be $70, if it is $71 though, the price stays the same.

All work is done in digital, either Photoshop CS5 or Sai  I also make journal announcements from time to time whenever I am freely open for commissions so keep checking! Slots are limited though but I will happily put you on a wait list for the next queue so I will contact you later when I've cleared my previous queue and am ready to move on to the next.

I usually work best if left to my own devices but I will gladly follow specifics if need to  For images over $26, on request I may present WIPs for approval and make free changes before I move on to the final. I can also make very minor changes on the final free of charge if need to c:

*COMICS*

Comics are no longer offered for commissions due to how exhausting the time taken to work on them can be.

HOWEVER!

I am not fully abandoning the option.

If you have an idea you want to throw at me just tell me and I might consider it but no promises. If I do accept, keep in mind prices can be very variable.

I can offer payment plans for comics due to how pricy they can get if it gets to be more than one page. You can choose to pay all at once for the pages to be inked/colored or you can pay for the first page to be inked/colored and the rest sketched out and only pay later for those wips to be colored.

I may post my commission works on my gallery. If you don't want it in there, just let me know! Commissioners are free to post the commissioned work I've posted for them in their gallery as long they credit me with a link back to my gallery.

You may not trace/copy my work, claim my work as yours, or/and try to distribute/resell my work for money.
I just hit 200,000 pageviews today :D thanks y'all for all the watches and favs! You guys are great even if I haven't really posted more here as I should be as of late haha

I should be opening commissions again soon, very soon so keep an eye out for the next journal update where I may be opening available slots soon!
apparently you can change your usernames on DA now?

Wow
  • Mood: Joy
Guess what people? I've decided to open for commissions at last! Great right?

Everything's on the commission sheet here: :thumb271125564:

If you're interested, drop me a note and there we can discuss details and/or swap emails if you'd prefer that. then once the price and picture has been settled on, I will give you my paypal information.

I will not start work on your commission until I am paid for.

For big images with lot of details and such, I will send you WIPs so you can see and let me know if there are changes I need to make. I will not make anymore free changes after the final work has been sent - keep that in mind! For more information on this, feel free to contact me.

Any other questions, contact me!

I only accept Paypal - no points commissions, no other pay methods that does not use Paypal.

However at the moment I am limited to how many I can take so I've got 5 slots open for now. I can set up a waiting list though if there are more people interested after the slots have been filled.

...On my DA at least, I'm still drawing ponies but I won't be uploading them here anymore and with a good reason - I've noticed that I keep getting attention due to the pony art I've been doing - attention that I really don't deserve when I do other different and more original stuff as well. I don't want to be known as that "pony artist" on DA - that's not me.

So I guess I'd better nip this in the bud and say that from now on, all my uploaded art here will not include ponies. IT will soon return to my series and pokemon and all that different stuff. So...if you came to watch me just for the pony art, I'd highly recommend that you don't watch me anymore because I'm not doing it here anymore.

However, I did say that I am still drawing ponies (just NOT putting them here) and so I've created a tumblr just for that purpose (among some other things...) - soo...if you'd like to see any future pony art I may come up with and stuff then I suggest you bookmark or follow the blog too/instead.

Here:
flutterdashpie.tumblr.com/ (and yes, it will be mostly safe for work but I guess it could occasionally get bit kinky - really, depending on where it leads to from there on)

And that's all folks!
  • Mood: Content
Playing this game again because why not? I'm in the mood for a bit of a chit-chat anyway. Ask me any kind of questions!

though I might ignore some I find too touchy/personal but really it depends
  • Mood: Content
So, yeah - I've noticed that I'm a couple thousand pageview hits away from 100,000 which again is cool, wow, I guess. I am pretty sure ponies had something to do with it.

Just gonna put it out there that I'll draw a cool art request for the first person that catches the 100,000th hit and perhaps another picture to celebrate.

---

As for real life-related news - the party has ended and now I'm on a job search (which means eventually less ponies and art but more money so that's still good) and I've found a community college which will help with me getting my associates degree  (turns out I have more than enough credits for it here, hahaha) so hopefully I'll be able to transfer/get into an animation school next and then, the industry. AND THE WORLD.

Eventually
  • Mood: Content
Okay, got something good to say

For the past week, that Fluttershy in Wonderland project has been bullying me around and I felt pretty intimidated to respond so I'd felt bit frustrated and distracted, doing other things instead. But NOW I'm kicking its ass, as of today - I've already drawn three more scenes and am working on a fourth one. Take that project, hah!  Hint: It's the scene with the twins that I'm drawing now~

Guess that means I'm back in the loop again!

Also I should note something, I've checked DA to see if there was a file size limit and there is - nothing more than 30 MBs. Currently my compilation of 7 images so far is 2 MBs so...it may seem big but that's not really so bad as I thought it would be, I guess. But still, the final product is a ways off and it'll depend on it to see whether I need to break it up or not. If I do, you'd be okay with that, right?

And...uhh...I guess I don't have anything else of importance to say...My life is boring. It doesn't help that there's practically nothing to do here either. (I wanted to go to a rodeo since I've never been to one and thought it might be a fun experience but because of this horse virus thing, all rodeos are shut down :c )

Okay, this is a terrible journal
  • Mood: Content
*Edit3*  Okay see this? My coloring project of Fluttershy in Wonderland sketches (and more) has officially begun. But wait! There's something else I'll need your help/suggestions on. For you see after I am done with each scene - I'm going to put them all together into one big image (like a storyboard if you will) but I'm not sure what outline I should use for best effect. Because...I dunno, separating the scenes would kind of...kill the flow or something I guess.

So here's the examples: i60.photobucket.com/albums/h11… So, A or B?

OR alternatively, I could make a slideshow video of sorts and you can pretty much scroll through each scene but I'm unsure about that. (I don't have flash...only Windows Movie Maker and even so, I'm still concerned that may ruin the quality...but still, it's an idea too)

Thanks for your time!

----


Anyhow, I thought I should give a bit of heads up for what to expect next after I'm done with it. So...you know that Fluttershy in Wonderland sketchdump thing I did? Yep, after some consideration, I'm really thinking of cleaning it up and coloring it - wouldn't that be cool? Yeah, I think it would be great and everyone loves colorful pictures, right? That'll be the first thing to tackle in my list of art projects for this summer.

And there's bunch of other art/writing ideas I want to try out after this but they're not definite - just kinda floating around in my head. When I make a decision I'm sure, I'll update this journal so keep an eye on it if you're interested!

*Edit* Oh now I remember! I've also been doing that drawing challenge from Equestria Daily so I've been doing a related sketch each day (you may have already seen some of them in my recent sketchdumps) - I just didn't care to send 'em to the site as I just didn't have time to finish and color them (because life and requests - derp) Hopefully that can change once the project load eases a bit!

Also got another art thing under the wing as well but that's a secret~

*edit2* Finally done with the requests! Unfortunately I won't be taking anymore for a while at least, sorry peeps! But hey, now I'm totally free to do my personal projects at last. However, I want to take my time and stuff, I don't want to rush things and burn out and end up with bad art nobody likes so hope that's understandable!

1. Requests

2. Fluttershy in Wonderland Color Project

3. Equestria Daily - Training Grounds (a daily drawing challenge)

4. Secret art thing
  • Mood: Content
Just putting this out there, don't care if no one cares but I guess there's some relevant stuff too

1. Finish the rest of the requests

2. Attempt to introduce at least one family member/friend (I'm looking at you Talax!) to MLP: Friendship is Magic. Because there's nothing better than having an actual someone to share the love for the show with! Like we already do/did with Spongebob, the Simpsons, and bunch other cool shows

3. Get a job and an actual driver's license (derp)

4. Look for a new school, the current one's program I want to get into has already rejected me two times and it's far from home so it's getting pricey. So yeah.

5. Look into possibly bringing my SG series back up and/or make a MLP episode-based comic for this summer only (I think you can guess at what the possible story will be~)

And that's all I plan for this summer!

Also I guess I could get a 3DS too
  • Mood: Content
*REQUESTS ARE CLOSED NOW* I shall be getting to work on them soon c:

---

I could do FlutterDash almost everyday but hey, let's do something different! So MLP requests are open once again! (with movies again being a sub-theme as well if you want something to work with if you can't think of any pure MLP stuff~)

Also since this is the week where I'm packing to head home, I'll be scanner=less for few days so I can't do my usual comics - so requests are good to pass time!

Again, I can do up to 15 requests this time

Rules are same as last time but with more things to note!

1. No two+ different requests per person!

2. I'll pretty much draw almost anything as long it isn't too explicit! Mild gore I'm okay with drawing.

3. No request changes so think carefully about what you want!

4. If you want me to draw an OC pony of an existing character or your own, please provide references! Otherwise, I will ignore them. I won't draw OC pony shipping with actual MLP characters though, sorry but them's the breaks!

5. If you already asked for a request previously here: cartoonlion.deviantart.com/jou… -  you cannot ask for another one. This is to ensure a fair chance for others who missed out from last time c: if you ask anyway, okay, you won't be on the list but the idea may stick in my head anyway. You evil people.

Well then, ask away!

Request List: (1 spots open!)
1. Epic Star Wars/MLP:FiM crossover for warlordvir
2. Hughes as a  pony for Micka33
3. BBC's Merlin with ponies for Bandach

  • Mood: Content
Well, I've finally finished all the requests for everyone who asked, save one for :iconwarlordvir: which has been put on a temporary hold till I get the necessary references

It has been really enjoyable doing every one of them, experimenting new styles of art and such, using the best of my Photoshop Element(6)'s capabilities - more than I could have ever expected. Yes - you read that right, I still use the old thing and it's done a wonderful job for me for all this time c: Who needs the expensive new fancy stuff when I've got good old trusty programs?

But seriously, I haven't felt this artistic driven in such a long time - most of time I've been making comics and it's made me feel kind of empty sometimes :C I got MLP and the requests to thank for reinvigorating that almost lost feeling and reminding me that I don't have to make comics all the dang time just to satisfy y'all.

I like to think that I've become a better artist from this experience, c:

I think I'll open MLP requests again at a later point but first! Doing all these requests have inspired some new ideas in my head so I'm gonna work on them then! : D
  • Mood: Content
*Edit 2* Well looks like the glitch got resolved. Twilight SparklexBig Mac is still the hottest thing since sliced bread though. Eee'yup

In other news, I'm just almost about done with requests and should be reopening later on so look forward to an alert if you're interested

:iconwarlordvir: Your request will have to wait a bit longer, I want to make this request a good one but I'm missing reference materials (in other words, I don't have the original Star Wars trilogy with me to check for cool details and ideas) So, I hope you can be bit patient a bit longer! I shall be heading home next week then I can get it done c:


---

*ALL SPOTS ARE FILLED - REQUESTS CLOSED TILL FURTHER NOTICE!*

Yep, that random time of every month where I decide to draw stuff for others for free (because I am such a nice random lady)- usually with themes! And this time it's...movies. Hahahaha - no seriously, it's My Little Pony: FiM but hey you want to put those things together, go for it! I would like that too!

But this time is special! I really want to get my creativity flowing so they might be bit more than just simplistic doodles so this time around I'm going to put a limit on how many I can do. So without further ado...I can work with up to 15 requests at the moment. So in that sense, I'll do art for the first 15 people that ask for it and no more after that! No asking for two things at once! Also no request changes so ask carefully!

You can pretty much ask for anything as long as it relates to MLP:FiM but I do have rules - NOTHING too explicit but I'm okay with doing slight gore, nothing too extreme. Otherwise I will just ignore and hide those requests.

Well now, ask away if you wish! c:
