THANKS GUYS! You're the best :3 - (FREE RAFFLE!)

by
I've been seeing a lot of friends posting on tumblr or whatever, just being surprised how far they've come. They'll get notes or something saying that their works is amazing and wonderful and it just warms their heart <3! And it's true - those friends have come along way, and progress is always golden <3!

I often forget about myself, what I have, and what I didn't have before. I sometimes take things for granted, when the fact is - I'm not owed anything, and though I'm an artist, no one is entitled to like or look at my stuff.

For some reason or another, I can't seem to get much attention on my clean sites. DA I've kind of abandoned, since things were getting slow and, meh. Tumblr's been a slow and steady process of getting viewers and such... Naturally, I'm a bit of a smut hound, so sites like FA I've gotten much more attention - but you guys have been different the whole way through.

YOU guys have made for a wonderful community. My stuff reaches the "popular" thingy on the home page, and I'm like, "...wait wat?". You guys like my works, regardless of cub oriented, feral or anthro subjects.  My work has an aesthetic that's not quite ironed out yet, it's in a weird stage and I think it may actually make some people uncomfortable at times (my clean stuff). But for whatever reason that aeshetic seems to have hit home here. You guys are my audience. You guys are always there to tell me that what I'm doing is good, and that I'm not just wasting my time.

That's something that's very important for an artist. -FOR ANYONE- actually. In a world like our own, it's sometimes difficult to continue putting up with some shit when there's not much of any payoff. Or even verification that it's the right thing to do.

Many artists do art for themselves. Me included. But we do it for you guys too. For other artists, for non-artists, for anyone interested. The fact that you guys take the time out of your day, and even LOOK at our stuff means the world. LITERALLY, the world.

But some artists don't get this honor. I know some artists here, some artists on Tumblr/da/fa anything. And it's hard to be in that stage. Every person should be getting some sort of recognition. It's just something that people need to keep going.

I don't have the time to give each and every single one of you my recognition, but I can hopefully give it to some of the more active people... I just ask that you guys continue being awesome - But also, appreciate art EVEN MORE than you already do. Comment on anyone's stuff, everyone's stuff! Look at things, favorite things! This is the most amazing thing about the internet, we get the opportunity to see things across the world! AND THERE'S SO MANY GOOD THINGS CREATED. So let's all appreciate it even a little more than we already do =)

~ RAFFLE THINGY ~

Like I said, I'd like to give back to you guys. You've made the past year and couple months with IB incredibly awesome for me. I'm really so pleased that there are people out there that like my stuff, and aw you guys are just amazing TvT.

I'm ASSUMING anyone reading this and watching me PROBABLY likes my art. So the one requirement is that you're WATCHING me. Why would you want free art from someone you don't really like? That doesn't even make sense.

So! If you're watching me - AND YOU COMMENT ON THIS JOURNAL. Anything at all. Just a comment. Then you're entered in the raffle! For the sake of adding additional chances to this, you can rejournal this for an extra chance. Feel free to re-journal on any furry-art site, but you'll only get credit for one.

So you can get 2 tickets essentially.

I'll be randomly picking out 3 winners. They'll get sketch commissions of their choice as you've seen me done before. (Time on receiving those are questionable and unpredictable, but eventually)

I'll be choosing the winner NEXT WEEK. July 12th!! Probably midnight-ish? I'm not going to lie, maybe the 13th morning... It's not necessarily a strict thing, I'm assuming this journal will die out in the next few days anyways.

But yeah, so only comments on this journal will get you an entry. Reblogs will get you another one. Then the rest is up to fate! So have fun and whatever happens, happens =)

Just don't forget. Try to give some more love to others. I don't think a lot of people realize how important attention is to an artist (including the artist themselves) - and anyone else for that matter. So let's all just be there a bit more for each other - Oki doki?

Thanks guys! Love you all!

EDIT - I just want you guys to be aware - Yes, there is free art involved in this journal, but that's really NOT the point of this. I'm not trying to get more watchers from this, that's not the point. The over all message up there is what's important.

Also, I'd really prefer people only participate if they LIKE MY ART. I get that some people may not've seen me and they've recently just watched me - that's fine. Assuming you actually like my stuff. Hopping on this to get "free art" from an artist you couldn't really care for doesn't make much sense to me. Why would you want something from me if you don't like what I do? Right?

Lastly, what are you guys congratulating me for?

That you give us the opportunity to enjoy your art is a treat in itself. I'd love to know how to check out your other stuff, but I'm afraid I only know you by your IB name. Regardless of who wins I know I'll enjoy the results.

Here's my giving you a shout out: https://inkbunny.net/journalview.php?id=90738

Hey thanks a ton! Do you have a tumblr? That's the only site I post my clean stuff on basically :/
SpottyFerret

I don't. Would feel kind of weird to create one just to watch people I think XD I'd love to get it from you via PM if you'd rather keep your tumblr and IB accounts disassociated.

I know exactly how you feel about the popularity on smut sites, I am in a very similar situation and I plan to thank everyone proprly soon too.

About your stuff,in my opinion is the way you trace things, the brushy feel, at least this is one of the main reasons I liked your art enought to wach you ^^
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Thanks! I actually take a lot of influence from graphic design and traditional Chinese ink paintings. That's probably where the line-art stuff comes from :x

First off I recently Found you, Secondly I can't believe I wasn't watching you before. Well that's fixed now. Then I read your journal here, What nice things you have to say. I would do that second ticket thing but I dont make journals, no one reads them anyways, I'll take my one chance but that's not even why I'm here. While its a bonus it's really what you said before all the raffle crap that I chose to watch you and the fact your art is like wow. So much diversity while having a consistent style, its nice.
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Blah <3! Thanks so much! I do hope most people are getting the same sort of vibe from this journal. The point of this journal was to help spread the love of art, so I hope the "free art" part isn't too distracting >->
Legend
5 years, 1 month ago
I think for most it would be but for few it isnt. I know I for one took the time to read it all and then was like "oh kool a raffle" I was going to comment anyways. But you're right it is about the love of art and I do like arts much even though I'm not very good at it. So I watch others grow and blossom and encourage them. I hope one day I can afford something from ya as it would be nice to have a piece from such a gifted artist who likes art as much as I do. I'm glad I took the time to read the whole thing, you're a good apple, dont change that aight!
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Apple?! IMMA CARROT ;)

Really that's all it comes down to. I think sometimes we might get into this zone where we just believe this work is made for us and, if it doesn't impress us - then whatever. And though that's TRUE, it's also nice to just look at something, regardless if we like or not, and be like - Hey, that's a solid piece of work. Another human, like me, put time and effort into a thing, and look what they did!

Art's just the shit, man xD. I can go on and on about it, it's bad :x
Legend
5 years, 1 month ago
Hahaaa! I know what you mean there. That's just like me with music.Cuz that's a form of art also. Even if it's a genre I dont like I can tell that someone really tried and gave it their all and to me that makes it sound good. Although I wish I had more of the artsy skill and not so much the music. Sometimes I get frustrated over that >.<
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
The technical skill (draftsmanship) is only one super small ass part of art. You said it yourself - Music is an art. So is writing. And all 3 of those make an animated movie (erm, with cinematography). If you've got one of them, you can make stuff xD!

Besides, design can favor a level of skill, think of Cyanide + happiness http://www.explosm.net/comics/3224/ Right? Incredibly effective - meh drawings, but wam-bam-thank-you-ma'am ART!

You know you can do it. Draftsmanship just takes time and perseverance, that's it.
Legend
5 years, 1 month ago
That I think was probably the most brilliant thing I've ever heard before, truly inspiring. It's nice to see someone who seems to truly understand such things. I guess perhaps I should fill this huge sketchbook up as with anything a little understanding of it and time with heart can yield an amazing result with diligence. hnmm I've just had an epiphany :)
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Bwah :3 - Me helping ^///^!

If you want to read a thing (or two) I've been in the process of making some How To Art tutorials - But none like you've seen before.

I've got a lotta stuff written (from rants to more organized tutorial things) They're aimed at anyone who wants to get better, but coming from someone who does it for a career (JUST STARTED BABY YEAYUH) But, the point is, some points I've stressed can be taken lighter if it's a hobby sort of thing :3

Anyways if you're interested - and you have a gmail - lemme know!
Legend
5 years, 1 month ago
I am interested I forgot my Gmail tho. I use Yahoo mail. And no my music is not a hobby it is my life and career, Drawing though is a hobby at this point but something I would like to further in because I'm never satisfied with my skill level.

Carrot

:/ Now, that's not particularly the point of this journal. Please do read the whole thing? There's a lot more to it than "free art."

idlevalley
5 years, 1 month ago
I want free arts from you ^^ heck, I'd be willing to pay. I just don't see an opening anywhere.

Your art is a bit of an inspiration to me. Your openness and willingness to help makes you golden in my eyes. I have a couple 'heros' in animation that I look up to and I'm possibly willing to add you to the list as I watch you grow and learn everyday. My recent hush is only fueled by my fear of getting in the way of your internship. Please note that I look up to you very much and I'm excited to show you some of my stuff when you're ready.

I'd love nothing more than to work with you in a studio someday.
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
WOW that's cool TvT. Really dude, the only thing that I enjoy more than showing people my stuff, is teaching people stuff, and you certainly know how to make me feel good about helping you with stuff T-T.

And naw dude ~ Internship is Monday-Thursday business hours time. The rest of my time is spent practicing or socializing or socializing while wanting to be practicing. AKA - Me time, es tu time. And since it's via email, it's whenever time~!

If you've got stuff to show me - do it! Seriously >->

And nope - despite me doing smut drawings (and cautiously looking over my shoulder to make sure my uncle/grandma don't walk by - not to mention the awkward possibility of my uncle being able to see what sites I've been on el oh el) I am not accepting any commissions for a few months xb One day though ;D
idlevalley
5 years, 1 month ago
WELL THEN! I'll certainly hit you up then... (just Google-ed that... er... I'll e-mail you then)

Aww come ooooon. I promise it would be clean! Besides my more exotic characters could be a fun challenge ;3 Freakish lab experiments for the win!
