Krissi how would i go about suggesting a DD?

:iconkrissi001: Jan 8, 2012, 10:10 AM
You have to send a note to the appropriate Community Volunteer (with the title "DD suggestion") in the note you include the thumbnail of the Deviation and why you think that it should be featured :hug:
ok... i really really dislike the way i look... so i wanna do a vote...

10 is love at first sight.
5 is about average.
and 1 is really hate that face.

10 forever and always. every day that the sun shines and when it rains. I will forever always be there for you. if only I knew you sooner so that I could hold you and tell you I love you. that your never alone. no matter what storms may come even if the sun never shines again I will be there holding you and loving you. Ive seen you in photos and seen you on the streets I am sure..if only i knew you then like I know you now. your tears wouldn't fall into empty bed sheets..but I would be there to wipe them away. I love you forever and always.
hey, synful, almost all my old groups seem to have died out, what are some good emote groups i could join?

:iconsynfull: Jul 17, 2012, 4:06 AM
It depends what sort of group you are interested in. #Emoticiety is one of the oldest and most popular feature groups, #Emotication is a useful resource group, and #EmoticonOpus is a fun contest group.

You can find a list of most emote groups here, separated by category:…
you just make it look so easy, do you have a better way to animate?

:iconkrissi001: Nov 27, 2012, 8:54 AM
The only program I use is Photoshop cs4. I start with a black Emote and then I copy the layer and add something more to it, while i use the previous layer as a reference to see where I have to add or remove pixels. And I can preview the animation within the program. I work on it till it looks smooth to me.
thanks for commenting, even at all, i don't usually get comments, no one cares to critique on anything i do, ... even though i ask so many people...

:iconchli: Jan 16, 2013, 3:37 PM
I understand.

If you want more comments you could always join those critiquing groups. If you critique someone elses piece they'll do the same for you. Also, people are more inclined to comment when they see that you comment back. On some of your pieces I saw that you didn't reply. `Mirz123 posted a poll about artists not replying to comments. I looked all over for it, but sadly I couldn't find it. She might have removed it, I don't know :shrug:. But either way, everyone said that they commented more if they knew that the artist would get back to them, sooner or later.
do you happen to have a better way of animating, then simply copy and paste a million times?

:iconpix3m: Jun 16, 2013, 2:55 PM
Graphicsgale is what I use, though it is mostly the same copying and pasting. You get a better sense of how your animation looks in practice though.

I would not use MSpaint though, it doesn't have keyboard shortcuts so evry time you need to change tools, you have to move your mouse.

There are other ways to animate that doesn't require you to draw frame-by-frame. However, the mediums you want for that are vector, and 3D.


... i favorite a lot of very sweet pictures...
if you wanna see the kind of things that go through my mind look here...

80 Points = $1.00

2,400P = Premium membership.

I'm taking commissions:

animated and more complex things = 80P = $1.00

even more complex things, like complete sprite pages = 400P = $5.00

the most complex things i could do = 800P / 1600P = $10.00 / $20.00

i also do art trades, and occasionally requests.

please comment anywhere for more details, but don't note me, ... i don't like being noted.

Do not send me your points until my work has been completed if you are commissioning me.

Points given prematurely will not be sent back.

I will show you my work in a way so that you will not be able to steal it, at least, steal it with good quality, so don't try to skimp me either.

Zone 01
Alright, so i took a little bit of time and made this micro Green Hill.

I was hoping it would end up being small enough to be used on deviantART, but even the smallest version i made is to big, so here's the full version.

Please comment if you use this icon.
Can I ask you something? Do you ever wish you could turn back time, and give the people you care about a better life than they've had. I mean, really improve their life... not give yourself a second chance... and even though you don't really know them anymore, does it still break your heart to think about them? Is that loving someone?
Hi watchers and visitors.

as may be apparent to some of you, even though I've returned I haven't been doing much more than favoriting pictures.
so join me in what I am actually doing.

I'm writing a dimension spanning fan fiction that has plenty of openings for your input, and if your interested your own characters.

Currently I'm writing and concepting for 2 major sections in the story, an origin story in a sonic the hedgehog universe, and a side story in a MLP universe.

Progress Report - Updated 3/13/16
I've made a cause and effect script for myself, as a sort of guideline for where I'm going with the story, until i have a more official version of the story none of it is set. I've recently been doing a lot of research into locations on Mobius, specifically where zones are in relation to each other. also, i really haven't been missing any zones, so that's a ton of locations to compare and theorize their locations.
and now finally, with my art, i have some, its mostly just practice drawings, but i have some. i think I'll probably get art for the story commissioned and then primarily focus on writing it.
so, my goals right now are to finalize the cause and effects of the story, and write all of them out, all while saving up enough money to get art, and practice a little. I'm not setting deadlines though, I'll write when i have time, and drive. it... seems like I'm doing monthly updates... and they're always such small updates, sorry about that guys... wish i had enough drive to give you guys good content.

Sorry! Missed the lart about being noted! D: i was wondering if you would be up for doing a couple animated sprites!
izzy-the-hedgehog Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
its alright, ... i remember saying the "don't note me" thing, but I've actually been doing more notes recently.

now, for the sprites, it depends on what they are, i don't want to promise something I'm not actually capable of doing.
it seems like your looking for my standard 50x50 dA icons, and it also seems like you want to commission me for them.

you should know that I'm really not interested in selling my skills at the moment, but i might recommend going for a sprite sheet and animated icons.

animated and more complex things = 80P = $1.00

even more complex things, like complete sprite pages = 400P = $5.00

and you should know that, depending on what it is, I'm also open to just taking it as a request, its been a pretty long time since anyone's asked me to make anything.
Dr-Whiskey Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
What would a sprite sheet consist of?
izzy-the-hedgehog Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
so your looking for an icon similar to these?

This is an example of a sprite sheet:…

it basically consists of all the frames in an animation, with the addition of accessories, like different eyes and mouths or items, as an example my OC icon would have the chao sprites in its sprite sheet, so that i can easily change or edit or even make new chao.
