Oooh, shiny



Painting Nails - INA by RickGriffin
Painting Nails - INA
INA setting: Oda and his twin sister Zure painting each others' nails, because what else do you do when you're royalty?

I only have a couple fox characters of my own and find it odd I don't draw them more often. Then again, Oda is supposed to have 22 siblings, so there's still more to draw . . .

If I decided to post (not-pornographic) nudity, what would you think? Example: 

916 deviants said Awesome, go for it
277 deviants said I guess it's fine but I don't have an opinion
45 deviants said This is a bad road to go down, you'll be snorting cocaine off hookers' abdomens before you know it
42 deviants said I'd be severely disappointed, I thought you were better than that
37 deviants said I'd be disappointed, but things change so okay
26 deviants said I crave lusty bodies and will probably bug you to make my fetishes manifest/attempt to RP with your characters in-comment
23 deviants said There's no such thing as non-pornographic nudity
12 deviants said I have no idea what this means help
Thank you to everyone who sent me the birthday wishes! I haven't had the time/sanity to reply to ALL of them so take this as a general think you to everyone~

(Boo, what a copout)

Quiet, you

Hey Rick, I wanted to ask if you've ever taken a digital art or just art class and if so is it helpful?
Im having a bit of trouble with my art and i wanted to know if thats a good way to help.

Art classes in general do help.

Although funny story, my mom once signed me up for art classes against my will, and it turned out that, indeed, I was far and away better than everyone else in the class and ended up learning nothing. So it's not any old art class that'll do the trick; it does need to be something that challenges.

I pursued art at first during my college career, and out of all the classes I took the most helpful was Life Drawing. It was hard and kinda miserable and all my work sucked, but it helped SO MUCH to be able to sit there and focus and struggle with the basics.

By contrast, my Design classes were of little help at all, except Design II although only because they actually taught how to use Illustrator and Final Cut just enough to get some things done. In terms of learning how to art, they were not very helpful; both teachers were entirely too subjective in their approach, to the point I could get away with Basically Anything, like in high school art classes.

Thank you so much!
I really appreciate the help, especially considering I was about to attend a regular art class to since art class in school is pretty much exactly as you said in your first paragraph.

so, this is a pain in the butt to explain over to everyone here and stuff.... so I gues i'll save my hands the pain and summurize

I did this thing when I first started where where I'd watch people, but didn't watch them. I thought it was something special to do. and recently I thought, since I forgot a lot of the people I kept tabs on, that I'd go ahead and watch them all now. so, even if it's a little nothing or not, the least I could think to do to show my support for your stuff and how much I like it is to give you a little watch./

well, that and I could always keep enjoying housepets as well.

I wish to make a collaboration image of Bailey for her recent events in Housepets!. Would that be possible? I'll be sure to give you credit & ownership.

And talking of your webcomic, every time I click on the link or 'Home' icon upon my iPad, I keep getting diverted to some voucher winnings page. Can you please sort that out?
RickGriffin Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You can do that! Fanart is always welcome.

As for the second thing, do you access Housepets from the facebook page?
CCB-18 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
No I don't. But it doesn't do that thing on a computer or's just my iPad.

It seems to be alright when you click on the archive link (also on iPad), but it does the same thing when you click on "Home" in archives - but not when you click on the Calender...
