I AM ALIVE AND BACK IN ACTION!  Tons of art uploads coming soon.  Please for give me being MIA for almost two years.  Life has a wonderful habit of snatching us away.  Open for custom work.
So I have decided to host a CONTEST!  I am trying to expand my Etsy store merchandise and I would like to do it with some fresh ideas and photos for product.  Since my creative juices, as of late, have been flowing better with custom orders, I figured why not get some ideas/photos by making prizes for a contest?

Here's the contest:

Design your own or redraw your anthro fursona into a 4" x 6" OR 6" x 4" piece.  

1. The piece must be in full color.
2. Can be a digital painting or traditional 3-D or leather pieces.
3. Submit your final work as a deviation link to me via a message on THIS journal entry or as a private note entitled "contest entry".  Please do not leave me a message on my profile with a link.  
4. You may submit up to 3 entries.
5. Your anthro may be "naked" as in natural fur or feather (some clothing is much more preferable in this contest) but may not express sensuality/sexuality in any regards.
6. Up to two characters per entry.
7. No pagan/shamanistic themes...this is not a totem contest.
8.Please no "furries".  This contest is for more natural concepts.

1st place Prize: A stainless steel flask with a hand-carved leather coozy featuring your anthro in full color.  1st place winner may choose one of the other two prizes instead if he or she desires.
2nd place prize: A hand carved leather trophy belt buckle featuring your anthro in full color.
3rd place prize: A hand carved leather bookmark featuring your anthro in full color.

All contestants will receive a 30% off coupon for ANYTHING in my Etsy store (…) and/or for your fursona to be hand carved on a leather item!

January 1st

I need at least 15 entries for this contest to work so spread the word!

Have fun and feel free to message me with questions!!!

Etsy -…


My first devotion is to God. That's not going to change.

Then there is the wonderful prince of a dragon I married May 3rd, 2014.

As an artist I strongly believe in expressing change and growth which is why you will find my old, cruddy stuff from years back. I love to see how other artists grow and change and I love to help other artists, newbie or master, with making their work better.

I am always open for commissions unless I post otherwise. Ask me and I can probably do it.

Commissions I DON'T do:
-Sexual themed images or the creation of objects for sexual use.
-Witchcraft/Pagan religious themed material (symbols, ritualistic crafts, god/goddess pictures/crafts, etc...)
-Furries (depends. I have been known to make exceptions)
- Vulgar or otherwise insulting imagery/craft to any race, religion, or culture.

Thank you for your consideration and feel free to ask me questions.

So your getting older (^.^) in 4 days. What are you planning? Am I invited? :)

I still know 6 Years ago, when I was 24 (sounds like my grandpa), I tried to survive 12. class. Had a hard time with physics. But I loved math and still do. It never helped me in physics though. Am I bore you?

As I saw you are getting 24 I thought about how fast time passes by. I also thought about all the oportunities I had and how many I led slip away. Hope you are and always will be much smarter than I was. :)

You wouldn't happen to have a tutorial on how to draw wolf heads would you? I'm trying to draw my first realistic Anthro and Can't seem to find a tut that works for me.(But I used your other werewolf ones for the legs and hands!) She's just headless. Lol.

Remind me in January and I might be able to make one.  I;ve been meaning to continue this series.  I'm just so slammed right now with mask orders on Etsy that I don't have time for leisure stuff yet.
