:iconhetherev:
Hetherev is an art roleplaying group. In Hetherev, your OC is dropped unexpectedly into a new world where it can interact with the OCs of others in the same situation. There is a general art folder for general art, but challenges are available to motivate/give you direction if you want it. Kind of like art jams!

Okay! No need for extended apologies about inactivity or revival speeches, that's not what this post is about. Folks get tied up with life, school and their interests shift. No problem there! I'm just curious who else is active so I can better gauge who to have my OCs interact with. This post is all for me! And I guess whoever else finds it useful. I've made a post like this several times before but failed to deliver on any interactions. I can be kind of flaky! 

It's been over a year since I did anything in Hetherev, probably longer! I'm planning on resuming activity. It's been so long since I poked my head in I'm completely out of the loop. Who else is active or is planning on getting active?

No obligations! Posting here doesn't obligate you or me to anything.
Hay Hay!
FlightRising is open for registration for today, but just today, if you've been waiting to get an account now's your chance.

If you do join, I'd love if you added my name as your Referral. My username is Ashley
Updates will probably stay pretty slow because I don't draw a lot of finished art that I would put on DA, but I'm gonna start breaking uploads down into singles instead of piling them together in sketch dumps over long periods.
I update tumblr almost daily and post information about stories and characters there, www.greekceltic.tumblr.com, I also have an active weasyl account, www.weasyl.com/profile/ashleyl…
Again! I posted a journal like this recently, but this time I'm looking for a different character type that I think will appeal to a different crowd of artists.

I might like to commission someone for a colored picture of Hours, Jim, or one of the other Cat’s Way characters soon. The requirement would be someone who is comfortable enough drawing cats/cat monsters to take a commission. I think artists judge their own skills too harshly, so I’m going to look at the examples provided of everyone who offers. I can’t promise I’ll commission anyone, but I would enjoy browsing those that are open!

for scenes or things to draw. I'm not up to requests, I'm more interested in suggestions that set a mood or designate a place/circumstance. If you know my OCs well enough to feel confident suggesting something, go for it! (Even if you don't know them that well, haha).

I need to start another painting and I don't want to sit here all night trying to decide on something.
Hay thanks! I wondered why my inbox was suddenly so active. I'm actually about to crawl into bed, but I wanted to welcome any new watchers that might follow the DD to my account, and say thanks for the feature and favorites. Howdy y'all!

I'm still active on DA, but my posts here are few and far between compared to my tumblr (www.greekceltic.tumblr.com) account. I like to make compilation posts on DA instead of singles, and those take a while to build up :'D
My friend has a buddy trying to make the FtM transition proper and he needs a little help, info under the link,
I've maintained activity here (though slow) since I started using tumblr and don't foresee that changing. My updates are a little bit slow because I have a THING about not spamming my deviantart gallery with single sketches. I like to clump them together in sketch dumps instead, but those take a while to build up. I'm a little more loose and laid back with my tumblr and weasyl accounts.

I post basically every day on tumblr. 

greekceltic.tumblr.com/ My art tumblr, which is mostly headworld blurbs and sketch art. Sometimes I post about my day, but very rarely do I reblog anything. So I shouldn't spam your dashboard too badly.

www.weasyl.com/profile/ashleyl… My weasyl, which I update more frequently than DA but less frequently than tumblr. The work I put there is like tumblr, unfinished, and not clumped together into big files.

FINALLY I have remembered to post these. I am terrible.

I was waiting for Lizkay’s package to arrive but the day it got here was the same day I got dog bit XD Then I let myself get distracted. ANYWAY, here are my seasonal packages for 2013. 

From Recklessjack: A Hhoota bookmark that I love, and a glitter coated christmas card!

From wolfy: I AM A CHRISTMAS BOY

From xKaseix: Some rocks! And a sketch of Gale that my ipod camera did not treat very well >:I it’s sitting on my shelf now. I couldn’t take this picture outside because it’s so windy.

From Lizkay and Suzidragonlady: CANDY. So much candy. I am spoiled. There’s also a box of tea, two cards, a tiny calender, a dessert that I look forward to trying to cook (and making a disaster of) and some rocks from Spain! There were four rocks, but by the time I took this picture my dad had already made off with one of them. He got a share of the candy too. He is also spoiled.

I have my package to Lizkay ready to walk out the door :’D but today was a holiday? Only for banks and post offices, apparently.

Just leave me a link to a little info! I probably won't get around to replying, but I'll read every comment. I'm not sure what/if I'll be commissioning anyone yet (I'm only interested in one, maybe two and will have to pick from what's suggested). This is the easiest way to find out who is currently open.
Hay guys! My buds just opened their group in time for Christmas day. Wathais is a modern-fantasy OC group set up similarly to Hetherev, but I think with more freedom of movement. In this group you'll find prompts for art ideas rather than challenges. If you're looking for a place to meet the original characters of others and introduce them to yours in a modern setting with a supernatural twist, then you might like Wathais!

for Christmas wishlist? I wanted to wait until I had at least one round of gift art done before accepting any packages. That's done (I may still do more!). I don't want to hold anyone to their offer or make them feel obligated :'D So I thought I'd ask all to respond to this if you still intend to send something. I am only accepting packages in reference to this journal ashley-lee.deviantart.com/jour…
I'm going to be using my weasyl account kind of like I use my tumblr. Lots of sketch art and unfinished work. I don't like to flood my deviantart gallery with sketches unless they're bunched together, with Weasyl I'll just be throwing them down in singles. It'll be a messy account, but it should be an active one.

Update: There's still time to leave a character ref if you want to try for gift art!

Howdy! 

DA is so barren of Christmas Wish Lists this year D: I miss browsing them.

This journal is in two parts. The first part is my personal Christmas Wish List, which is dependent entirely on the generosity of passers by. Granting a wish does not instigate any kind of trade between us. My way of giving back will be through the random gift art giveaway that I'll be talking about in the second half of the journal.

Just a reminder, for my wish list I can give nothing in return. If you offer to send me something please understand that I will not be mailing anything back or drawing art for you. The gift art will be decided by personal preference and a random number generator. I will be doing the gift art giveaway regardless of whether or not any of my wishes are granted.

:rudolph: Christmas Wish List :rudolph:
If you plan to mail me something, you need to be at least eighteen, sorry! Please only mail legal things, haha. If you want to mail something, ask me for my address.

:holly: 1. Rocks. I collect rocks from the mail and have gotten them from a lot of neat places. They're free and can be tiny enough to mail cheaply so I don't feel guilty receiving them. I used to only accept international packages for this but now that I have a place to store them, I'm fine with rocks from anywhere! I have an additional request for packages.. if possible, send two of each kind of rock. My dad always wants one.
:xmas: 2. Tea. I've given up coffee, but I adore tea and I'm fine with caffeinated blends. I'll try any kind of tea! I have tons of flowering tea already though <:'D I don't think I need anymore of those.
:holly: 3. Art, if you want!
:xmas: 4. A package of anything is fine. I don't have any allergies that I know of. A package of wasps or used cutips would suck. I'd rather you not send that.
:holly: 5. I don't have enough wishes to make it all the way to ten. I hope you all have a good month of December!

:rudolph: Gift Art Giveaway :rudolph:

Want to try for some gift art from me? Okay! Anyone can reply for gift art, you don't have to have granted a wish. Just leave a reply to this journal with a link to a character ref, or include a description if you don't have one. Regardless of whether my wishes are granted, I'll be returning to this journal at least once this month to do art of some of the characters posted. Who I draw will be both random and dependent on my personal preference, and I won't be able to do all of them, sorry. If you granted one of the wishes above, it doesn't effect your chances of getting art from me. You can leave your refs too!

Free chance for art. You don't have to do anything. Lets see those refs!
Just letting y'all know that I'm still open for commissions, but won't be able to reply to emails until later today or tonight. I'll be at my sister's house most of today. 
Full up for now

Before you read on, you should know that I've had terrible luck with tablet pens recently and that if my tablet were to stop functioning properly I could have to refund in-progress commissions, but this is just a precautionary reminder.

:star: Read everything before attempting to commission me :star:

These sketches are very messy. They are not ideal for lineart use and will have incomplete features. The colors are also pretty basic. Nothing very detailed.

$15 Fullbody Sketch Commissions -  closed by ashley-lee


If you would like to have two characters interacting, you can request a second character in the same sketch for 8 dollars, but please don't abuse the option. I offer the discount on additional characters to make it more affordable to have them drawn interacting. I have not set a rule on how many characters I'm willing to sketch in one sketch, I'll have to play it by ear.

Future commission prices could change and I do reserve the right to create new commission types later that may be seen as a 'better deal'.

Bullet; Green The price for this run is $15 for one fullbody character (add $15 to have the character colored, if desired), by paypal, in advance, I don't start work until payment is received.
Bullet; Orange The price may change in the future. This is the first time I have offered this commission type in a while.
Bullet; Yellow Yes, you may color it yourself. However, remember to credit the image properly. Make it known in an easy to find place that you colored it, not me. This prevents confusion and preserves my art style and quality outside of my gallery.
Bullet; Blue I will require your city and state (email it to me, don't post it here). ( Commissions FAQ explains why: ashley-lee.deviantart.com/jour… ) I no longer need your street name. I would prefer to have your name too, but that's optional.
Bullet; Red This commission could take up to 30 days to complete. Sometimes I am very bad and very slow and go all the way up to the last day.
Bullet; Yellow In the case of a refund, please wait until the 30 days are up and no work is shown to request. If you request one earlier, please allow me two weeks to get the money back into paypal to send it to you (this is worst case scenario). There's always a possibility that paypal could be a butthead. I've heard of it happening before. I'll do what I can within my control and within reason to get your refund to you in a timely manner.
Bullet; Purple I am okay with edits (as long as they're reasonable) but I don't do outright redos.
Bullet; Orange What you get is what you get. I often don't provide previews, even for colored sketches, because I tend to start and finish in one sitting. Sometimes I do provide previews, sometimes I don't. It is entirely at my discretion and will differ from buyer to buyer.
Bullet; Green You may request a pose and expression, if you don't request one, I'll make one up.
Bullet; Blue I reserve the right to post the art in my gallery with the usual copyright disclaimer on the bottom (no watermark). You may ask me not to. If you don't want it posted, I understand, tell me so, I don't bite.
Bullet; Red Please be prepared to pay when you request the commission. Be sure you want it first. Know what you want.
Bullet; Purple My commissions are not priced for commercial use. That means you cannot resell them, or resell use of this lineart, or prints of them, or what have you. You may make prints of them for your own enjoyment. Just don't be selling stuff with my work on it for profit.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Star! WAIT FOR A REPLY BEFORE SENDING PAYMENTStar!


Sorry about this. I usually leave them open for longer but my new tablet is beginning to act up and I decided not to take the chance of taking commissions and then having to refund them the next day. Will be finishing my current roster if possible!
Okay! If you're reading this, great! Please read this entire journal before commissioning me. 

I'm offering loosely sketched 'big cats only' commissions for 8 dollars by paypal. Before considering this commission, there are a few things you should know!

I will draw your character as a big cat, or your existing big cat character. You CAN offer me a human or other creature ref and I will draw the character as a big cat (also includes smaller wild cats such as caracals, lynxes, etc)

Sometimes I offer Cat Commissions, which come colored and are a little cheaper, but these commissions are (generally) domestic-like cats only and are not currently open. Big Cat commissions are more expensive because this is a NEW thing I'm trying, and I feel I would be damaging and/or underselling myself to charge too little the way I have previously. I am in an exploration phase of pricing my commissions and expect pricing to fluctuate until I figure out where my comfort zone is. This means that future commission types I open may impact old commission type prices.

There is ALWAYS a chance that sometime down the road I'll open a type of commission that allows a broader range of character types (humans drawn as humans, etc) for the same, cheaper, or more expensive. I don't know if or when that will ever be. But it's something I want everyone to be aware of when commissioning me for these cat themed sketches. I don't want anyone to feel 'cheated' if I were to decide to do human/creature commissions later, without warning. I offer big cats because I know there is a large base of big cat themed characters, they're easy and quick for me to do, and it appeals to a large crowd. There also seems to be a surplus of people who enjoy coloring their commission lineart (which is fine).

Currently I am only accepting Big Cat or 'I'll draw your character as a big cat' sketch commissions, rather than 'cats', but I may merge these two themes in the future.

^ If you're okay with all that, I am happy to have your commission. If this discomforts you at all, I understand completely if you'd rather do business at a later time.

I've already beat the game but I'd like to piddle around in friend safari. 

After the pokemon hype dies down I'll probably remove a lot of folks from my friends list <:'D but until then we can chill over the game. If you've got your friend code handy and would like to add me, here's my number,

If it's to communicate with me about something that actually requires my input, a question, etc, that's fine, but I may never answer.

But please don't send notes about art raffles, contests, advertisements, etc. I get these pretty often.

It clutters my inbox and I can't clear the note message without opening it. This sometimes gives others the impression that I am ignoring them out of spite (because they can tell that I've opened it but never got a reply), when the truth is I just wanted my inbox cleared. Unfortunately DA doesn't offer an option to turn my notes off. This is something I'll just have to accept as long as I want to stay active on the site, which I do!
