Hyping It Up Before It Exists
A lot of people will put up promotional artwork, covers, character references, and other related work for their comic before putting up a single page. People often say if you want to write a book or you want to lose weight, it's best that you not tell anyone. When you tell someone you plan on doing something, they will praise you for it. The problem is, you are now receiving praise for something you haven't actually done yet. You don't have to work for that praise; the mere act of saying you will do something rewards you the same external way you would get for actually doing it. Sadly the result is many people are content to stop there. It's not even a conscious decision, but a lot of people will get caught up in the hype without realizing how hard making a comic actually is. Hold off putting up anything related to your comic until you at least have a few pages up; it wil
|25 points gets you a cute little icon like mine of a character of your choice!|
(Rules in my commission info still apply.)
I'm not making icons anymore. They're not as fun to make as they used to be. I do plan on uploading a base for you to make your own when my list is finished, but PLEASE do not commission me for these anymore for the time being.
You can use these little icons wherever you want: DA, other sites, MSN smileys, silent admiration, whatever. I don't require credit, but it would be nice. :3
My only real rule is that you don't claim you made them.

Just an FYI, if you are buying an icon, I will upload it to my Photobucket account for you to right-click+save to your own computer. I don't trust that other people on DA won't use them.
Also, what I do is finish off the list and hand them all out at once, so don't be upset/worried if I don't hand it in right when I get done.
This ---> means you paid.
This ---> "1/3" means you commissioned three and I have one done. (just as an example.)
This ---> fav.me/d3jtwix is a link to the ref you gave me.
Basically I want points so I can get a subscription, and commission my favourite artists.
Hello! I'm Tearany, and welcome to my little slice of the Internet!
I draw and stuff, and here's where I share some of the slightly more sane and family friendly pickings of my brain.
I'm a character designer and animator (surprising from my lack of animations in my gallery) and fanartist, I guess. I'm currently in college in an animation program. I work hard on my art, but I'm still learning. C:
I speak English. I write in long sentences and often use really flamboyant and extravagant words, so I'm really sorry if you natively speak a different language.
Online, I'm this rainbow barfing sweetheart who's nice to everyone. I hope that I am not the person you feel nervous to talk to. I'm super awkward and derpy and I might annoy you, and I'm sorry in advance, but I mean no harm. C:
Other than that, ask me anything that isn't personal~ Feel free to ask how I paint, if commissions are open, how I draw such-a-thing, don't be afraid to chat me up, I always read my comments! Always happy to share my resources!
I'm kinda bad at replying to my messages, especially if it's more than a "Wow, I love your art!" or something. Even if I don't reply right away, rest assured that I've read it!
And, that's it. Enjoy!
