2016 Art Trades OPEN!!!!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 10, 2016, 7:32 PM
l wut

Last bump I promise!!! You guys are gonna keep me busy this summer I am PUMPED!!!!

Do you remember when I had self-control


that was a trick question


I open once a year or so, so I'm going to probably be taking enough to keep me occupied for the next several months!!

I REALLY WANT!!! TO EXPERIMENT!!! AND GROW!!!! I wanna watch tutorials and do studies and make some cool stuff!! That's what art trades are for!!!!


Bullet; Blue  You can pick whoever you want from here for me!  Everyone will also eventually be on my ToyHouse too with more refs and info, but I still gotta put a few kids up there.    

Bullet; Blue  EQUAL TRADES *ONLY*. If I get another colored sketch in exchange for a full illustration I will KILL a man.  I expect you to invest the same amount of effort as I do!!!

:bulletblue: I know I usually do full illustrations, but I'm game for ANYTHING!! Headshots, page dolls, full-bodies, box BGs, sketches, anything!!! Except pixels please do not ask me to attempt pixels.

Bullet; Blue   I don't require you to finish your half before I start mine! THOUGH if you finish your half before I do, you become my top priority!!

:bulletblue: Please don't wait on me to finish my half before you start yours!!!  Though if you reeeeally don't want to start until I finish, please let me know so I can keep it in mind!!

Bullet; Blue  TIMING.  I don't care at all. I prefer my trades to be no-stress and low-key for both me and you, so take all the time you need!  Though again, the faster you finish, the faster I finish.  <__<

Bullet; Blue  I reserve the right to still make my comics, do my collabs, color my lineart commissions, make personal art, whatever, without being harassed!!!  I *PROMISE* I won't forget you, and noting me every week will just annoy me >___>. THOUGH you're welcome to casually and intermittently ping me for progress updates! That's totally fine!


Plz comment with what you want from me, who you'd like me to draw, and maybe??? an example of what you'll do for me??? that's not necessary but having everything in one place is efficient and I love that

OH AND AS ALWAYS if I don't note you it's totally not you or your art don't ever feel bad!!! about your art!!!  your art is amazing!!!!!! ..... and I might note you in a few weeks anyway

I will ping this journal a few times over the next few days I apologize in advance!!!!!!

  • Listening to: PLEEEEEEEASE
  • Reading: OH BABY
  • Watching: DON'T GO

Enaxn Featured By Owner May 17, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Enaxn Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist

jazzyloveswolves Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oki ^^
Noxiiious Featured By Owner Edited Jul 22, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'd love to do one!! c:
I'm really wanting to practice paintings so if we did trade maybe something like a waist up painting or something??
Heres an example of a painting I didn't really put my full effort into, I can make them more detailed if needed..:
Through the Storm
And if you do decide to trade with me you could have your choice of characters from here (preferrable one of the bbs in my "Sonas" folder):
PeashyChan Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2016  Student General Artist
I would love to do art trade with you if possible? ><
NEe-on Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I am unworthy to trade with you. Anyway, I can't wait to see what you will be drawing for your part. And also I love seeing your characters especially, Switchback, drawn in various styles! c:
Enaxn Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2016
Oh man, I'm trying to get back into art after a painfully long dry spell. I would definitely love to do a trade, but I know you've got quite a few replies already! I would be pretty much up for anything, though. I really want to get back into working with acrylics especially. And any character of mine would be fair game (I got cats, dogs, and rodents of all sorts, depending on your mood). Man, I really got to get my Toyhouse and charahubs up to date...
TripleThreat682 Featured By Owner Edited Jun 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It would be fun to try and draw Switchback (blue big cats!), though it would also be interesting to try Brom because I am in love with his amount of horns! 

For a style of drawing, rough and sketchy colored drawings are my favorite way to go.  Quick and simple.  Backgrounds aren't my strong suit, but I'd be more than willing to give it a shot.  Practice makes perfect, right?  It'd be fun, too, to try for a realistic drawing (though that would be for Switchback).  I haven't done a realistic drawing in many many moons. 

Some examples,…………

As for a less sketchy style of drawing,…

For a character on my end, I would either say……
Sambhur Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2016  Student Digital Artist
ME except I have no idea who I'd want you to draw from my characters aaaaaah 
i wanna practice backgrounds though so i guess i'd do something like this but like, better i guess since it's an older piece:… i'm thinkin that i'd like to draw switchback, i miss drawing big cats. but idk might change my mind if i can make a piece that works better with another character? 
if you note me we can go over your options for who you could draw (i have a few ocs that arent in my gallery that you might like. there's quite a few)
Greater-Wolf Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2016  Student Digital Artist
I would love to do an art trade! It would help me improve and it would help me keep my mind off of the stressful situation I have been in recently. Let me know if you'd like to, we can do like... a headshot for a headshot or even a completed piece including backgrounds i dunno!! 
dayylights Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ooo yay! I've been looking for some open art trades ;u;

I'll be happy to do a full illustration with Switchback…

An example would be like this: or

Annnddd I would be happy if you could draw either or qvq
Likopinina Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2016
That would be so rad *o*
My babies: YeloniaOlcharlesCCCNmoziMunenevMithrinBenonTarre, Viridflav
My kitty cat Leon :heart:

And examples………
I like experimenting so it might look like a mix of shown above or something c:
Velvet-Softpaws Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have an idea for a half body image featuring Mars and Travi ^-^

Soft shaded!
Mellieraw Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I wouldn't mind doing an art trade with you if you're up for it. I'm going to try and post my character references later this week. (blue oriental spirit cat) and I also purchased a character design (gatekeeper from Tatchit).
I really love your Denali character's design :>
Sake-Loup Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would ADORE an art trade from you! 
I just have one thing to ask, if you do pick me, would it be ok if you waited for me to finish first before you started your half? I'm a slow worker with full colored pieces and I would feel absolutely horrible if I didn't have my half done and you did a beautiful piece for me. ^^; I hope that doesn't sound weird.

I'm not too used to full illustrations with bgs so I'm not 100% sure how it'd come out, but I would love an excuse to try.
The only example I have of a picture with a bg right now is:
but some other examples are:

If you're up for a trade with two characters together I'd love to do Switchback and Ckazz~ 
And maybe you can do Alex and Sake (my werewolf fursona, I'm currently working on a ref and should have it up soon, she's really simple, mostly white with very few markings)? If you decide to note me I'll tell you more about the characters personality and stuff. x3

If you'd rather only do one character though that's totally cool too! You could maybe do Astalon? And I could do Switchback? 

Thank you for your time.<3
Atrocias Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Poop I want to so bad but my background skills are awful and I already have that Denali I gotta finish <3
Enaxn Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Atrocias Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I NEED TO FINISH SO MANY THINGS. I GOTTA GET THAT COLLAB UP where switchy is in the tree and blue is chillin below ;^;
Enaxn Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
HELL YEAH!!! don't worry though my body and inbox are always ready for ur hot ass
Jaimep Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Well I'm not sure if this would be something new, but what about drawing people and using only screentones or very limited colour pallet? Your gallery is full of extremely colourful scenes and animals. I guess if you really wanna learn something new taking you out of your comfort zone would do it.

So if you're up for it, I have my girl Kanna and her Commander, Odin, seen here: 
Godstrike - Page 6 (I do have proper refs for them. If you pick me I'll link you directly to the refs and personalities.)

Likewise, I'm looking for that bit of a push myself.  I'd be willing to do which ever characters you pick or I can surprise you. :3 I tend to do full illustrations when it comes to art trades. This is what I can do:
Navigation: Just over this Ridge 
Soul: Not Every Witch Lives In Salem
Tap to Jump - AoA Honour 
Sunset Magic 
Greetings! I'd be interested in doing an art trade of a full illustration. You can expect the fur detail to be similar to:… and the background similar to:… here's another example of my painting (only your version would have more fur detail. This was a quick gift for someone):…

Here are my characters that you can choose from:… (anyone I've adopted from here) or… (any original character I've drawn)

of your characters, I'd likely choose Brom or Switchback
KrystalRaccoon2002 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I have been waiting for this moment! I would love to draw your oc :…
and in return you draw any of my OC's Also can I b a colored sketch? if not then headshot.
C0LDSNAKE Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2016  Student Digital Artist
I'v always wanted to art trade with you!

Rriava Featured By Owner Edited Jun 12, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooh,this is amazing,I always wanted to do an art trade with you!! :D

Here are my OCs
I was thinking about if you would like to do also art trade of two characters? Like I draw for you two OCs of yours together and you will draw mine? :)
And I am suggesting art that can be seen on the pictures with my OCs or something like these
WarriorOfOrcaClan Featured By Owner Edited Jun 13, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh my goodness! This sounds awesome! I'd love to draw Brom (my goodness, his design is beautiful)
(I could sculpt if you'd like!)
And in return you maybe could draw my Fursona, Orca?
Half body, traditional? (I suck at digital, if that's alright!)

Enaxn Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's still in its early stages but I was planning on doing a fullbody with a background!! Though it's definitely not too late if you'd rather do something less labor-intensive!!
The-Hare Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2016   Digital Artist
Nah thats cool! Just getting myself back together (it looks like the house we were buying is a no-go. I've sunk back into depression again Dx ) and I'll work on it asap c: Just got more house hunting to do :C
