Commissions: Closed.  Working through my backlog of traditional commissions

Getting back to dealing with messages on this site.  Currently I have accrued some ~450 unread notes over the last couple of years.  
I will answer what I can, but I will be doing a message center wipe by the end of this year.  There's just too much for me to handle.  If you have sent me a note and don't hear from me by January, it's not personal, I'm just overwhelmed.  If it's important, please resend the note and I should be able to address it then.

Thanks for your time,

Hello Madame Crispy!  I wub you and your work.  I wish to rub my head on it like a weirdo.  Question!

How would you say you got where you are artistically? Ah- without being crushed to paste under the weight of terrifying loan debt?

I was looking at tuition for media art schools and I think it made me physically ill.  Or that could've been the cherries.

Thanks for being cool!

Glad you enjoy it Mara. :)  I am far from debt free, I'm paying off crushing school loans for the next 20 years at least and I've spent a lot of time barely scraping by.  If you're interested in the gaming industry, I would recommend people skip the mess that is art school entirely unless you find a stellar program that focuses on the industry you want to get into.  Otherwise get a day job, take online classes, and pour every ounce of effort into portfolio worthy material.

Thank you so much for answering!  :'D  I was afraid you'd say that...  thank you so much for the advice, and good luck with your work!

I also watched a bit of your stream on twitch a while ago, and it made me realize that I'm not a patient artist, and that good/developed work takes time.  So thanks!  :D

Hi Allison! i just wanted to drop by and adore you some more!

First off your art is passionate,calming,impressive and above all creative!
the creatures and designs are overwhelming to not "squeak" to.
And one of the most important is you give more inexperienced
deviants inspiration, like me for an example.

i just hope that you can have a good day knowing that you make
others happy by your drawings, have a good day sis!

I love your version of the night fury! I am secretly hoping you do the other dragons in HTTYD, they really need a new bad-ass make over. I know its not likely, but a girl can dream. XD

Wow love your work!!!!!! Can I ask what you use? SAI or PShop? And do u use a cintiq or Intuos? 

Just curious, absolutely love your stuff. Especially the Turtle Dragon...  holy crap... astounding concept design.

Massive fan.

Thanks for the kind comments Ian, I'm glad you enjoy my work. :)  I use Photoshop (CS6) with a cintiq.

I've been following you for four years and I only just realized you're the artist behind extra credits.
