Rainbow Avatar 2 by xXMandy20XxIf you find yourself on the receiving end of a watch, it means I love your artwork even if I'm too stupid to think of what to say. I'm often at a loss for words, so I tend to :+fav: and +Watch without word.

Please though, if you like to chat, I'm all ears. I just usually suck at initiating conversation. I promise I'm not a meanie... cuz despite my loss for words, I tend to ramble once you get me going. Rainbow Avatar 2 by xXMandy20Xx

Uh well... welcome to my page. I'm Catt. I draw pictures and I... ...well no, that's basically my "work" life. I don't get paid for it or anything, but when you're a shut-in all you have is trash TV and booze.

MasterFlickie is my fiancee and we've been together since October of 2005. We've known each other since 2003. He logs on like twice a year but he does appreciate the knowledge that people like his FLASH cartoons.


There isn't enough space in the "Interests" pane for the tools I use for art. So I'll list 'em here!

Traditional

:bulletpurple: Comic/Manga paper, Card Stock and printer paper.
:bulletpurple: Derwent Coloursoft colored pencils, Derwent Metallics, random brands of gelpens, Sharpies, Prismacolors

Digital
MSPaint, Gimp, PaintToolSAI, Photoshop

Normally, I'll scan something and then do my lineart in SAI because Gimp is retarded and thinks the Paintbrush tool is the same thing as the pen tool. SAI lacks when it comes to how I need it to render colors but from what I understand, it's not uncommon to have several programs to help with creation. The way I see it, SAI is my ink pens and Gimp is my colors.

I wish I could try drawing on parchment paper as it seems like an interesting medium. I will some day... haha.


I'm very opinionated and am aware... enough how annoying I can be. I talk way too much about myself if you'll let me, so... feel free to tell me to quit any time. I won't be insulted, but sorry and embarrassed. I like bright colors and find that my gallery is very ravery and flowery on top of being a furry gallery.

I have Agoraphobia w/panic disorder:
Agoraphobia is an intense fear and anxiety of being in places where it is hard to escape, or where help might not be available. Agoraphobia usually involves fear of crowds, bridges, or of being outside alone.

I have this because of my PTSD. I will never discuss with people why I have this, but I let people know early in case I randomly disappear or do/say something strange. I'm not rude or weird.
Interests
I keep seeing people rant about commissions and adoptables. Now, I for one haven't ever gave a fuck about getting an adopt, but what's the appeal? As for commissions, well, I haven't seen people complain about their commishes from more expensive artists.
Point commissions are bullshit. You spend a whole $1.50 on something and whatdya expect? I would never pay anyone less than 500 points for a single backgroundless chibi. Paying less than 200 points just doesn't seem worth it to the artist since that amasses to a whole $2. I don't bother with cheaper artists (Well that's not true, there's 2 I can vouch for who charge 20-200 points per who are skilled and make the commissions just as well as their own personal art).

I guess I don't expect anyone to agree, but when people make those "HAY WANNA COMMISH YOU" blogs and I look to see what they wanna spend and all the people denied because their good art at a fair price is "too expensive" paired with those blogs that complain about "I spent points on this piece and it's crappy" Well... I can only make the connection that just because 100 is a big number doesn't mean it translates to a big number.

Am I justifying a cheap artist's lack of care and slopped together commissions when you do give them points?
Hell no! I'm pointing out the flaw in charging so little. Charge what you think the effort is worth is what I'm saying. If people like your art, it will sell. Remember: Quality > Quantity

*shrug* Just sayin :icongoku-plz:
