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.
I am not taking any commissions or art trades right now, so they are being postponed for an indefinite amount of time. Do not ask me about these things until further notice.

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.

Getting back up to speed... Kinda.

Fri Oct 3, 2014, 8:23 AM
I've vanished completely for what must've been over six months, with no warning for you guys.  It's ridiculous, I know.

There was something really urgent going on for a while and I didn't bother to take the time to give you a heads-up.  (Or did I?  I can't remember.)  School has started again, and I've set myself goals for my career.  Those two things are at the top of my priority list.  I'm sorry, but dA is being lowered on the priority list. (or not)

This doesn't mean that I'm not going to be around.  I'm just not going to be around as much.  I'll post stuff if it is relevant to my current priorities.  Anyone who was really eager to see my stuff for #PMDUnity, sorry, but that's not relevant.  I might try to catch up with everyone else eventually.  I'm let down too, I had really cool ideas for it, but that's just not high enough to be something I'll take too seriously.  No promises, guys.

I'm not going to say exactly what I'll be looking to do in the future, because nobody will care enough to read it and it'll be like spoilers. (You know how book nerds are about spoilers.)

As for better news, I have set up my workspace to multitask on school and art.  Hopefully, I'll be able to be more productive in the future because of this.  I'm almost to a point where I can begin publishing my professional works and if things continue smoothly (which they rarely ever do, because it seems that fate likes to grab popcorn and laugh as we tear our hairs out) then expect things to begin picking up again by late 2014 or early 2015.  Don't ask me to do collaborations, art trades, or commissions, I'm too busy with my own things here.  I have a bucketload of ideas I want to put to use in the future, and I can't do that if I'm flooded with requests from other people, which is frankly very unlikely but whatever I'm telling you anyway.

If you're wondering why I haven't looked at your stuff or replied to comments, then now you know why. 

Other things:
- I also had another thing going on with a friend of mine where I was supposed to be helping him edit and improve his work, and dude, I'll say it right here; if I am holding you back, then please go about finding another editor.  Digital editors are great for the technical stuff.  I'll be honest; I've tried to continue the conversation twice, I swear, but my work is always lost in the end.  If you honestly want me to pick the project up again, then fine, let me know and I'll attempt juggling it again; if you don't, either tell me or ignore my message entirely, that's fine too.
- I'm looking into using WordPress to host a site to showcase and sell my writing on; if anyone here has any tips, it'd be great if you could share.

Question of the day:
- Be honest: do you really think that Colored Tales Studios actually sounds like a good name?  Don't sugarcoat it, please.

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.

StalkingAnarchist Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

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)

 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.
