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.

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.

My career is not going to be animation. My career is going to be my career :)

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.

Have now started a Youtube channel of my own for live painting, playbacks and tutorials. My Youtube channel Mind you, it has only begun and I hope to make good use of it.

A try, a cry and a sigh

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 28, 2016, 8:32 PM

So I've made it into the winter semester of my last year, at least what should be, for my BFA. I've registered for graduation so I gotta make good with my last animation class. I had spent nearly all the fall semester figuring out what to do for my final project. I had a long time before hand to think up of something, but nope, I hadn't managed to think up of anything before that. Don't worry, I got something and I've been working on the animatic.

I've even gotten myself a copy of TVPaint11, but I've come across a lot of set backs such as incompatible project file types between TVP and SonyMovieStudio Platinum, incompatabilities with quicktime .mov files and figuring out how to import png files properly.

With all of that and trying to get back in the swing of working on my animation, I had missed the deadline for the collaboration project which was well over a week ago and not tomorrow. Well I may be missing out on getting a music composer from the collab. I just have to get over it, deal with it and figure out what to do for the music. I have had a backup plan the whole time, just gotta either learn to play the score myself or find someone else who can do a good piano recording for me for a 2 minute short.

I suppose what I take back from all this so far is having to learn to cope with my panics. Indeed, what you learn from school is more than just what the lesson plans cover.

Well, onwards it is then :|

: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:I'm transferring from Livestream to YouTube. Just got to edit some old vids and record some new stuff. More info later.
: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??
