I'm an independent artist.

I do this for a living. Or rather, I want to do this for a living.
If you have any tips on getting into the market or promoting my work, it would be much appreciated!
Or, if you're interested, you can see below whether I'm open for business or not. It may not always be up to date, so keep that in mind.


- 1 digital drawing
- 1 50x50 icon

Art Trades

:bulletblack: Exchange 1 picture for another, material will be decided upon during negotiation. All decisions are final. If you wish to revoke a deal, then it must be revoked within 5 days (Eastern Standard Time), or you must go through with it.
:bulletblack: There will be no refunds. Once you have a picture and both parties have created their pieces, you cannot decide that my piece is not good enough to be worth what you made and demand that it is remade.
:bulletblack: The exchange will occur simultaneously, to avoid one person cheating out the other.
:bulletblack: Both pieces must be created with the same care that all of the other pieces get. Just because a piece is not for you doesn't mean that it is okay to slap something on a canvas and send it to me. It is disrespectful to me, and gives the impression that you don't care about your customers.
:bulletblack: The material of the work you want mustn't exceed a rating of PG-13. I won't draw anything that could potentially be offensive to another party, regardless of how stupid or morally questionable you or I think that party is.

Working in the Background

Sun May 4, 2014, 6:03 PM
Top of the morning to ya.

I know I kind of just...Vanished on you guys recently.  My message boxes are packed with Deviations, journal entries, and comments that have gone without any sort of a reply for months on end.  But I'm not dead, and I sure haven't forgotten about what's going on over here.  I'm still checking in every now and again, but for the most part I've been staying out of sight and out of mind.

But that's not to say that I haven't been working on anything!  I've been hacking away at my school assignments, fighting back a lack of inspiration for my drawings and a new e-serial I'm working on getting set up so that I can actually make some profit off of my work.  I haven't tried to create any sort of website for my work yet because I'm still editing the first chapter and writing the second, but believe me, it's coming!  I've shown the first chapter's draft to family and so far I've been getting good feedback, so hopefully it does as well on the internet.

Regardless, I hope you can hold yourselves over while all that's going on and are looking forward to seeing what I can do.  If you want a rough idea, then you can look at my work for PMDUnity, but I'm not taking that as seriously so don't expect anything particularly fantastic.

That would be all. :3

I'm your local neighborhood grump, author, illustrator, and underage wizard.
I like speculative fiction, fantasy, mystery, military and war time fiction, with a pinch of comedy to lift the mood every now and again. I spend most of my time drawing, writing, pixelling, working on school, being a nerd, and writing stupid strings of words like the one you are reading right now.
I also like androids, cheese, books, words, being pensive, video games, computers, tea, snakes, mythology, and wandering aimlessly around the kitchen when I'm bored.
Here you'll find cheese-flavored (otherwise called "cheesy") old pictures and stories from a year ago. You'll want to focus on the ones from 2013 onward; those are much more mild in the cheese department and focus more on plot, logic, and are approved by mystery and suspense before being served. Believe me when I say that I've taken levels in cooking up stories; lots and lots of them.
Most of my stuff comes from random bursts of inspiration I like to call an "Inspiration Attack", but these usually take up the form of images containing pre-existing characters; only one picture ever contained a character I had never seen before. It's called "L O U D". Look at it sometime. It's cool and has lots of bright colors.
So yeah. Check out my stuff. It's cool stuff.

Are your commissions open :0
ColoredTalesStudios Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Student General Artist
Yes, and currently I'm holding a sale. Interested?
StalkingAnarchist Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
First Commission: 
OC Lorilei Lazuli
Pose: Can you give her a crown and have ice and snow surrounding her. She's a ice woman/medusa. And she's a model >u<

Second Commission:
OC Amara Milis
Pose: She's a controller of space and time, so something with a space-like background? C:

Third Commission: 
OC Kumiko Tsumi
Hair: Pigtails with bangs covering HER left eye.
Body/Outfit:………  (Her eye is supposed to be red I made a mistake :C and her skirt is supposed to be black)
Pose: She uses fire so something with a fire-ish background and her holding a scythe?

 That's uh 150 points right? o-o

ColoredTalesStudios Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2014  Student General Artist
Eh, 'scuse me, but I can't seem to access any of the references for Kumiko Tsumi, and the hair references for Lorilei also seem to be missing.  Is there an error or did you move/remove them?  If so, can you give me the updated URLs or send them to me through

Yes, that's 150 points.
Do you have a deadline in mind? At least a rough date you'd like to have your pictures done? Note that I have a commission I'm already working on that I'm trying to get done within the week, so if you could work around that it'd be great.

Veryyy I'd like a couple of artworks like this coloredtalesstudios.deviantart… the fifty point ones? Let me just get my references together :DD Is it okay if I send you the points directly cuz im having a hard time keeping track of all my points and stuff o-o
ColoredTalesStudios Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Student General Artist
That's perfectly fine. I don't care how you send the points; the only thing I ask is that you wait until you already have your commission before you pay for it. I don't want to accidentally cheat someone out of their points because I never finished something. I'll let you know when I'm done with something.
