365: My quest to better art

Man, it's been a long time since I've really updated this thing. I thought I'd pop in here real fast for a quick update. I've been keeping busy with work, dance, a hunt for a new home, and a ton of new art. Very little of my work has been fan art recently. I've been trying to hone my skill with full digital paintings of my own design so I can hopefully get them into a gallery showing at some point. Here's some of the ones I've been working on:

Water (2)
rock god
rock goddess2
Elementals

Other than that, I've been also working on a fun little project called The Giving Bunny, where I make stuffed bunny plushes and leave them in public spaces for people to adopt. It's a LOT of fun. You can learn more about it from here http://www.urbanthreads.com/blog/?p=7487

Calling all Twitter usesrs!

I suppose I should explain some of my silence for the past while. 

As you all know, I'm a member of the military. Helping people has always been something that has driven me and for a while now that has taken the form of protecting others. While on my last deployment though, I discovered an amazing company called Random Acts. These seemingly disparate people from all walks of life have come together with one common goal: 

To change how people see others and to change the world itself through random acts of kindness. 

I joined their ranks and have, since then, never regretted a moment of it. I've found myself spending less time with my head in my headphones and more time just talking to the people around me. I'm meeting people I never thought I would. I'm making a difference one person at a time just by doing something nice. The big thing here is that it doesn't take a monumental effort either. Random Acts brought it to my attention that just taking two minutes to tell someone I like their earrings can really change that person's whole day. That takes, what? Two seconds? For the person having a bad day, those two seconds could mean a world of difference.

Just recently, Random Acts began to restructure and they asked for some volunteers to help out. I put my name in and suddenly found myself as the Assistant Director of a world wide non-profit organization. All of our staff are volunteers and they are some of the most talented, driven, and amazing people I've ever had the honor of working with. 

Now, we need your help. The Random Act is now up for a shorty award on Twitter. If you have a Twitter account, please take just a few seconds of your time to vote for us. I provided the link below and it's doesn't cost anything from you but a few seconds time. 

Thank you so much! Your support helps get our name out there to the world.

Commission?

Hey guys and gals,

I don't normally do this but, well, with some medical bills having come due and my being the only breadwinner in the family right now, things just got a little tight this month. In order to meet all my bills, I am trying to see if anyone's interested in commissions. I can promise a turnaround time of no more than 72 hours. I'm also trying to make these cheap since I know things are hard on everyone right now.

Line art with 1 character: $10, digitally inked.

Color work with 1 character $20

Additional characters, $5

Examples of my work can be found here on my LJ as well as at http://otterling.deviantart.com 

I am also willing to write stories if anyone wants that instead. 5,000 - 10,000 words $15. Give me a prompt and I'll make it happen.

Thanks in advance for any assitance anyone can lend.

Happy birthday!!

I am a little busy this weekend and was worried I wouldn't post this in time so this is an early birthday present for oddlyfamiliar 

She's a sweet gal who works hard to do nice things for others so I thought this would be a good way to give something back to her. This is her OT3 so I hope she likes it. I was originally going to do Dean/Cas only but Sam snuck in there and distracted Dean. Not my fault. *cough* 

Enjoy!
