I'm offering some neato icons, if anyone is interested, for $15 each. A second icon of the same character is only $10.

Majority of these will be inked traditionally, with digital colors and soft shading.  I can't provide any existing examples, but take a gander through my respective galleries to get an idea of what you can expect from me.  You will get a high resolution copy along with the 100x100 version.

If you are interested, please send your request in an e-mail to  You are guaranteed a spot in the queue if you send via mail.  Notes and comments will be ignored!

Please include a description and reference (SFW PLEASE!) in your request (either attached or linked) and I will reply back with the Paypal info.  Thanks and good luck.

Hey, guys.  Just thought I'd take this moment to do a little promo for a fresh young face in the art world.  His name's RikkiTheBlackFox and he's got a very unique art style.  This young lad is currently taking commissions, so I encourage you to give his gallery a look see.  Have a good one.

Hey, everybody.  Just thought I help out my friend Pensive with this little announcement promoting her brand new community on LiveJournal.  At this spot, it's all about creative development and character design.

This is the one stop spot for all your comic and cartoon needs.  Whether you need advice on building character traits or have some concept art and ref sheets you want to share with other artists and story tellers, this is the group for you.  You have the opportunity to place old character designs up for adoption and also offer to design characters for potential clients. Anything at all, it's all right here.

Now, keep in mind that even though this isn't an exchange community, we feel it would be rather fun to do character design trades with other members in the near future. :D

So, if you guys are interested in partaking in in-depth production design discussion with other talented people, we encourage you to sign up to our incredibly creative community.  Pensive LOVES to design characters and share feedback on other artists' material, so let's wish her all the best on this group.

Your attention please. I'm currently working to help two of our amazing cartoonist pals :iconhenrieke: and :icontoonmascots: attend an upcoming event benefiting animated film this February. They are a little strapped at the moment and we are asking for all you guys out there to help pitch in a little.

Our goal is to raise $500 overall. So if you're interested in a pic or a donation, drop them a line and name your price. Also, for confidentiality purposes, no comments here please.

So be sure to lend a hand for these creative minds. They need your support. Thank you very much.

Marshak: I've known Morey and Digby since grade school.  Although Morey does tend to get his hand in the cookie jar once too often.
Digby: Oh, yeah.  I know those guys.  Incidentally, Morey's been like a brother to me.  I know he'll always have my back... most of the time.

All right, folks.  If you see your avie, you've been tagged.  For anyone else who want to try it, good luck.
