One Last Glance - Digicolored by RockingScorpion

I like it. The coloring is good, as is the line work. I am a bit skeptical about the relative size of Littlefoot. He only seems to be a...

Update on requests, art trades, commissions, etc:

I guess this is new for me, but outside of a couple of ideas, I have few drawings in the pipeline. I've been busy, but it looks as if two expected students aren't going to go through (boo!), but this gives me more time to draw stuff (yay!).

I suppose I will complete some inking and coloring for a friend. :iconchiletrek: has been kind enough that I have done several collabs for him by now. I see no reason not to extend that favor to others. I have time enough for five colored works with inking and a background, but I guarantee no time table. If you can provide a model pic or a good description, I would appreciate that.

1. :icondraconic13: Request: Orc vs. Dracon (Linework is mostly done, apart from some editing. Once editing is done, it will be scanned, inked, colored (with some lighting and/or shading and shadows), and a background will be added.)

2. :iconkingdragon01: Request: Done.

3. :iconkasaibou: Art Trade: My part of the trade is done.

4. :iconchiletrek: Collaboration: Collab up!

5. :iconnotecardpasta: Collab uploaded. Thanks!

:iconpointcommissionsopen: :icongiftsask: :icontradesask: :iconcollabsask: :iconrequestsask:

* New information on commissions will be forthcoming soon enough, including paypal commissions. Point commissions will still be an option too, but only for some things *

If you are interested in a picture, contact me and we can work something out on a case-by-case basis. I'm not sure how much time I will have for commissioned pictures, picture requests, or collaborations. I intend to do some of those, however.

I also do writing commissions. If you want me to write a story, a piece done involving your OCs, or something else, please message me. I only accept point commissions, and at a reasonable rate of 100 points for 1000 words, with a 100 point minimum purchase. That means if you want 1000 words, it is 100 points, and if you want 2000 words, it is 200 points. If you want 3000 words, that is 300 points, and 4000 words, 400 points, and so on. These are point commissions only, so no cash is accepted or used, save to purchase the points yourself from DA first. This is a slight price change from an earlier journal, but it is still very reasonable.

Please make sure to tell me a bit about what you want me to write, the names of any characters you want to see, and please answer any questions I may have regarding the setting and characters, to ensure the final product is what you want. I don't do anime, manga, "hetalia", or anything adult rated. I reserve the right to politely decline any commission, if I have reason to believe it does not fit standards or has some other issues.

I can do science fiction as well as fantasy, or even non-fiction genres if you desire. Just make sure to send the points and I will have the piece done in a few days or in the case of longer pieces, a week or more. As a rule of thumb, I have enough time to write 1,000 to 1,500 words a day for commissions, depending on the subject matter. For exceptionally long pieces (100,000 + words), please send me a note and we will work out a point rate and time frame on a case-by-case basis.

For multiple-chapter works, I am open to negotiating a different price, Please ask if you have any questions. More information will be posted as it becomes available, including the possibility of discounts.

If you are interested, comment below or send me a note.

Anyone who watches me (and is on good terms with me) gets a free writing of up to 5000 words. Not once a year or a month, just one free writing ever. As before, I reserve the right to politely decline anything not in good taste. I also recently corrected an error in the pricing chart, in case there was any confusion.

Teenage Kyo by Aristodes
Teenage Kyo
Here is a picture of :iconchiletrek:'s character, Kyo. Here he is as a teenager, standing in the palace of his adopted family.
No way to be subtle about this one. See it! SEE IT!

... Why did communism collapse and capitalism endure?

... Why is gun violence in America the highest in areas with the strictest gun laws?

... Why didn't Paul Ehrlich's predictions regarding the population and planet come true?

... Why are states with the weakest labor unions showing the fastest growth?

... Why is Texas still Republican, even with so many minorities living there?

... Why are areas with the highest percentage of students in public schools the worst educated?

... Why are countries that are the most connected to world markets the richest?

... Why are most capitalist countries also democracies? (Left-wing liars such as Noam Chomsky claim that democracy and capitalism are incompatible, despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary.)

... Why are the most liberal parts of the world showing such slow economic growth?

... Why is Detroit (a left-wing bastion) so horribly depressed?

... Why is Texas (a right-wing state) so prosperous?

... Why are people still unhappy even after decades of easy divorce and abortions?

... Why did Disco die? (Disco was a very left-wing form of music and culture.)

... Why are planned economies so feeble and inefficient?

... Why did import substitution fail?

... Why did Marx's prediction of communist takeover in industrialized countries not come to pass? (Those takeovers happened in agrarian societies instead).

... Why did forced busing fail?

I could go on. When a person or group continually fails to predict an outcome, it becomes clear that they do not have a strong grip on the reality of the situation. Liberals have constantly failed to predict the actual flow of events and yet they claim to be the "reality-based" ones.
If reality has a liberal bias...
Just some facts to disprove the idea that liberals are the "reality-based" community.

I find your dracon world and lore really interesting! It is really well-built, far more solid and complete than Terrevanimus. I would love it if we could collaborate on world-building sometime!

Actually, there is something we can do, for starters. Mind if I add a background to the headshot you sent? I will place it under collabs and credit you, of course.
