Anthro Variety and more

Sleepy Commish by NalaFontaine
From character design to colouring, pencil and digital paint, my greatest strengths are in anthropomorphics and expression. My style can vary according to need and can extend to a semi-realism to manga oriented style.


Where to begin. There is a large amount of work put into this picture with much detail accounted for. The background does well and has ...

Every little bit helps. I'll be collecting so that I may be able to give to others, either in future events or small tokens as I wish to encourage the community in more ways than I can on my own.

You must be logged in to donate.


there is a place for motivational/demotivational posters using screencaps, but it's not on dA. I am getting so fed up of seeing those here.

I'm not aiming to be liked by everyone and I don't expect for everyone to like me. :shrug: I can live with that.

upcoming: Otakuthon2014

Journal Entry: Wed May 28, 2014, 5:19 PM

Sincere salutations dear readers and watchers, for I bring you news.
For 5 years (2008-2012), I have worked on staff at Otakuthon, as large as it is, the role was minor relative to all that was happening, but I did my part and did the best that I could for what little significance the art gallery played. Some of you perhaps wondered what happened last year. I did attend Otakuthon last year, but not as staff, just as a regular attendee.
As much as I care about the art gallery, I will no longer be part of staff. Here is why:
I am an artist and I belong as a dealer. (yup, that's it)

Ladies and Gentlemen, you can find me this Otakuthon 2014,

August 22-24,

at my dealer's table!

*payed and confirmed*

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank BD-Ghis for helping me with getting my application in. I wish him all the best at getting his own table also.
**Edit: Table get! Congrats man!**
When dealing at a convention, having great neighbours is a memorable experience and makes the event all the more wonderful.

As part of what I will bring will include a limited amount of prints among my best Zel/Amelia pieces. I have the vague impression that there are a few people that actually like these digital paintings of mine.
Here are the selection I have so far planned for printing.

oC: Mystic Air by NalaFontaineoC: defend by NalaFontaineoC: Shell of a Shadow by NalaFontaineoC: on the edge of by NalaFontaineoC: power by NalaFontaine

If you have any suggestions or ideas for new work, these are always welcome.

So far the plan is to print them as individual pieces, but a thought of a small anthology is always up in the air. I will also have my first drawing tutorial booklet available at tree fiddy as always.

what more will I make?

Well I want to attempt a small doujin! No I don't think it would be painted like these. I'm not much of an author, but I certainly express myself via drawing. So wish me luck, every practice counts.

New program has been acquired now while it was on sale... no commissions where requested as of yet to help fund this acquisition... it's been from my own pocket so far.

:bulletpurple:I'm a Furry, so feel free to ask any questions regarding this. Not all Anthro Artists are furries of course.
:bulletpink:I'm an Aspie (diagnosed 2009). This means that I'm rather a nerd who does faux-pas (which I learn from, being on the spectrum is not an excuse)
:bulletred:I'm Married (since 2006)
:bulletgreen:And I've been a deviant since 2004

:bulletblue:#IamAnthro is my main chatroom
:bulletyellow:This is my Livestream for tutorials, works during progress and commentaries
:bulletorange:I don't support tracing as I find that it hinders the learning process of drawing.


Personal Quote: Murz?? why the hell do people try to fill in every every useless question in this section??

Hey, you were very kind and courteous to me in IamAnthro when I popped in to socialize, I hope that you don't mind me watching you.... Courtesy and thoughtfulness is rare these days unfortunately.

and happy birthday!
