Its Been Too Long.. Feature Time!

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 23, 2013, 9:28 AM


Its been.. well its been a really long time since I wrote a journal.. well over a year ><

I am going to try to make up for it by doing a feature page for some of my friends and guild members in WoW :)
I am back, feeling better and healthier than ever, I am getting back into doing commission work.. so if you're interested, let me know!

I love the personality and emotion he is able to draw into his images, really great stuff, and he's open for Commissions!

Bad things by AzureMosquito   Tom Waits by AzureMosquito   The Paladin's SecretThe tall plate-clad Draenei strode stiffly through the streets of Stormwind, looking neither right nor left, and if she noticed the crowds of people that barely had time to dodge out of her way lest she bowl them over, she gave no indication of it. From horn to hoof, her pale silvery armor gleamed almost with a light of its own and she wore it proudly, not a speck of dust marring its surface. Men giving her a passing glance found her lovely, but upon closer inspection, the hard set to her mouth and fierce, challenging stare encouraged them to hurriedly find business elsewhere and quickly.
The paladin seemed lost in her thoughts, even less aware of the little people around her then she usually was. She very nearly trod on the paw of a worgen and as he started to snarl at her to watch where she was going, her silvery eyes shot toward him and he hastily choked off his words and slunk off in the opposite direction.
“No manners,” she muttered in thickly accented Common. Even

Artist, writer, comic artist, she does everything and she's pretty awesome overall! :D

I can't feature this guy without plugging the one he did for me, I love it too much not to!   Than is an awesome artist and writer and if you don't already follow him for his Rifts work and sexy girls then you should definitely take a peek. :)

Back! Finally!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 3, 2011, 10:39 AM


So Finally back online, on my own PC, in my own office, althought in a new house, in a new state. :D

"Not too much longer" turned out to be much longer than I expected, but I have only now managed to reassemble my PC and my house is mostly unpacked.  

I am looking foreward to making new artwork, taking on new commissions, and running new exchanges!  I feel like I have been missing out and getting behind these last few months and I apologize.  I will not be responding to most artwork and comments and things that I have missed in my absense, since I had over 7k watches and comments and such in my inbox, I will just start over, but thank you to everyone who did comment ant watch, and for those who's artwork I am watching.. your stuff is awesome or I wouldnt be watching anyway, right? :p






If you are interested in a commission, just email me or send me a note and I'll get back to you.

MIA? Not for too much longer!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 10, 2011, 9:15 AM


So my summer did not go as planned.

I was supposed to be packing up my Missouri house getting ready to move back home to Phoenix, enjoying the cooler weather, working on commissions, planning a TAC exchange,  walking my dogs, getting my kids prepared to start school...

Instead I got sick, I went to the doctor thinking I had a kidney stone, and three days later was on a plane headed for Phoenix, thinking I had cancer.

I was told I had a Liposarcoma attached to my kidney, and it was huge.  It took the doctor most of a week to find a surgeon willing to operate on me, and once they did they were pretty sure I was going to lose parts of my spleen, liver, pancreas, and of course, my kidney.

Luckily, they removed what was a ten pound tumor, and my left kidney, but they did not need to take anything else.  The Pathologist came back with the report on the tumor 5 days later and it was benign!

But.. now I am sitting in my sister in law's guest house, because my new house is still completely empty, all of my furniture, books, computers, clothes.. everything is still in Missouri.  My hubby is due to go out and collect our things toward the end of the month.

This means I cannot really do commissions at this time, though I would like to.  I do have my laptop but I have no desk, no table and chairs, nowhere comfortable to spend hours needed to do quality work, especially since I am just not in the shape I was in before surgery. Two weeks in a hospital bed not allowed to eat anything does a number on you. not to mention the whole being cut open part. ><

Anyway, I am on the mend, and hope to be back within the next couple of weeks.  I know there are people who have requested commissions from me, and I would love to do them as soon as I have my own home, desk, computer..all of that. :)

Featuring My Guild!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 18, 2011, 9:08 AM


So.. as most of you probably know, I play World of Warcraft.  When I started..after coming from Everquest,  I had never really planned on having a guild.. guilds = drama, drama = no fun.  So it took me a long time, and a good friend, to convince me to join one.  We actually researched guilds, and found the one I eventually joined.   Not only is it the most drama free, fun, friendly, guild I have ever seen, but there are a lot of artists in it.. really good artists!  So I think it is time I do a feature of my guildies. :)

Though the Night Elves had been forced, by necessity, to be more active in the daylight thanks to their diurnal allies, they were still genetically nocturnal creatures and the harsh sunlight caused his sensitive eyes some pain. He finished tying up his waist-length blue hair as he strode down the ramp onto the Warrior's Terrace, approaching the Battlemasters for his day's assignment.
After pausing briefly to check with Arcanist Dulial on the status at Wintergrasp Fortress, the young druid approached the other Battlemasters as they poured over their charts and maps, muttering under their collective breath and calling orders to nearby Sentinels that waited to carry out their commands.
"Greetings, Aethalas, Brogun, Enlae, Keras." Gare bowed his head respectively to each of the generals in turn. "Where do you have need of me today?"

Those wings sure are pretty, but you sure are looking a lil under the weather. Did you remember to eat today little fairy? Why are you looking at me like that? Oh dear, I think she just said "Brains"! That cute little thing is a zombie ahhhhh!

Vampirate by DesignsByEve
So you say you're a pirate, eh? Well what about those fangs? Ohh you're a vampire, too? Well, I guess that makes -you- a vampirate, and -me- outta here!

MIX IT UP- New TAC Exchange by DesignsByEve
Aww what cute little pixie wings! Wait a sec, what is that on the side of your head? And why do you have a third eye pulsating in the middle of your forehead? Argh! It's a pix-borg! Run for your life!



Okay, so that's the general idea this time. Take any two, usually separate character types, and mix them all up. It can be anything, but let's keep them at least humanoid in nature. I mean sure an alien is okay, or maybe even a centaur type creature, just nothing so over the top that it might be hard for someone to recreate without pulling out their hair. If you think it would give -you- a headache, don't go there. You come up with the character; let your person come up with what they are wearing, and where they might be lurking.


Simple enough? Okay let's MIX IT UP!

Angry Crayon Art Exchange - FAQ

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 4, 2011, 3:37 PM


Prothink Store



There are always questions when we have an event at The Angry Crayon, and sometimes people do not want to ask.  So, here I will add some of the more common questions and answers for those who have thought about joining, but hesitate.



Q: What is The Angry Crayon?

A: The Angry Crayon www.theangrycrayon.com/f/ … a forum founded by :iconrozbeans: for artists and gamers to hang out and play.


Q: What is a TAC art exchange?

A:  An art exchange is a lot like a Secret Santa exchange.   Every player signs up on our Sign Up List www.theangrycrayon.com/f/threa… Sign Ups are over, :icondesignsbyeve: and I will take the entrants and pass out names.  Each person will get someone else's name to make artwork for based on the information they provided in the Sign Up thread.  

Each Exchange has its own Theme.  This theme is simple.. Mix it Up!  A mix and match of your favorite types of fantasy or fictional or historical beings. :)


Q: I am not a 3D artist.  Am I eligible?

A: If your artwork is something that can be distributed or shown digitally, so that your person is able to see their artwork on the turn in day, you are eligible.   We do expect that each person puts effort and time into their image.. You should try your best to put out your best effort for your person, because the person who has you will do the same for you.



Q: I have never posted on TAC before.  Am I eligible?

A: Yes.  We have no minimum post count requirement for entrants.



Q:  I do not know if I will have time to join something like this.  How much time is given to complete your work?

A:  In most exchanges we give a full 6 weeks to work on your project.  With Memorial Day Weekend  being at the 6 week point, we have added another week to finish for this exchange.  Turn ins are due on June 5th of this year.



Q:  What am I supposed to make?

A:  Generally you would make a portrait or Desktop and a signature  ( no bigger than 600 x 300 pixels )  You can add any other sort of gift as desired, so long as you make one item, preferably a desktop or portrait.


Q:  Can I turn in my artwork early?

A:  The turn in thread will be locked until the final day.  If you need to turn in your artwork before the final day, you may give the art to either of the event mods.  Either myself ( Lessa at TAC) or :icondesignsbyeve: ( Eve at TAC ).  This is a secret exchange, so please do not post or share your work with others until the final day.


Q:  What if something comes up and I will not be able to turn in or finish my piece?

A:  We give a generous amount of time for the event, so that everyone is able to finish something for their person.  We recommend that you start early, in the event that something unexpected does happen, so that your person is not left empty handed.  

If there is some emergency, or some horrible situation barring you from finishing,  let the moderators know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so we can make arrangements and your person is not empty handed come turn in day.  


Q: Can I make artwork for my own character before/during the event?

A: Absolutely!  If you do, feel free to send to me and I will gladly feature your work.

Thank you! www.theangrycrayon.com/f/threa…!!!


Please, please! Be sure to thank your person for the artwork they did for you.  More rewarding than getting artwork for yourself, is knowing that the person you made artwork for appreciates what you worked on for them.

FAQ:www.theangrycrayon.com/f/threa…

Turn Ins:  Nov. 7  ( That gives you five whole weeks to finish your artwork for the exchange!)


~

This exchange is hosted by myself ( Lessa on TAC Forums) and :icondesignsbyeve:  If you have any questions at all about the upcoming exchange, or about TAC itself, please ask. :)

~

Welcome to the Crossroads, the center of a world where anything is possible. The streets are filled with everything from horses and wagons to flying cars. It is not uncommon to see a medieval knight deep in conversation with a street samurai. Some end up here intentionally, others quite by accident. No matter how they got here, though, they have all had to find a way to live together. Some take more persuading than others, and some never do see reason.

Enter The Order, a group of high ranking officials who keep the peace and decide who lives and dies here at the Crossroads. No one has ever really figured out who belongs to The Order, or if they have, they didn't live to tell the tale. You don't find them. Make enough noise, however, and they will find you. Be careful who you talk to about anything. The Order has ears everywhere. Your buddy who has been buying you drinks all night might just be an Agent, sent to test your mettle and your loyalty. The Order is not totally unforgiving. They understand it sometimes takes a bit of time to adjust to such an odd, overlapping culture. Just don't take too long. The next time your buddy buys you drinks, waking up under the table like the first time won't be an option. Waking up at all, will not be an option.

--------------------------------------

Remember:

You do not have to be an existing member of TAC.. there is no minimum post count to play.

You do not have to be a 3d artist, any graphic artist is welcome so long as you can finish and produce your artwork for your exchangee on the turn in date.

There is a FAQ list on my front page here at DA and also at TAC, please take a look if you are new to these exchanges and feel free to ask if you have any more questions. :)

Wet Work II by DesignsByEve

Things are definitely gonna get bloody!  :stab:

I can't wait!
Sign Ups: Sept 20th - 30th
Turn-ins: Nov. 7th



From Wiki:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wetwork
Wetwork or wet work is a euphemism for murder or assassination, alluding to spilling blood. The expression "wet work", as well as the similar "wet job", "wet affair" or "wet operation", are all calques of the euphemism used by the KGB for such activities.
