I know I asked you a request back when I was doing the Sapphire Smurf series, but forget I ever sent that, because I'm not working on that series anymore.
Actually, I want to try something quite different. I was wondering if we can do sort of an art trade, where we both ask requests for each other and draw the requests for each other. If you would like to do that (and if that makes sense), then great! I can ask my request if you accept.
If not, that is also alright. I can understand completely that you may have other stuff going on, and you may not have time to do the drawing I requested.
I am not opposed to the idea, but it would be much easier for me to fulfill a commission should you like one. I keep my prices low for now, and I would be happy to give you a quote should you choose to move forward with it. :)
My current rate for a full-body sketch with digital coloring is between $50-60 (depending on how complex the character and whether or not I am provided with a color guide). Smurfs are generally easy to draw, so I would knock it down to $30 at the lowest if I'm given a color guide. It would be $40+ if I have to create my own color guide.
Ok great! So, once I get the money I need, I’ll let you know so you can lead me to where you take the commissions. 👍🏻
From memory, it's not difficult, really. First, you sign-in to your Paypal account (if you have one), 404 will then give you a way to contact her and you input it into the "Send & Request" option on Paypal's website, or app if paying by phone. I mainly use it for online shopping.
Hello! I can't guarantee that I'll be staying around for long, but recently I've been thinking about my old Smurfs series and I wanted to do some revisiting. It turns out, I have a lot already done, but a lot more to do, too. XD
I'm learning the traditional animation pipeline from former Disney animator and director, Don Bluth, between shifts at my part-time job. I love it, but it's not easy getting into the things I otherwise would do more of in my free time.

That's really cool! Next week, I'm starting up animation classes with my teacher, who is also a former Disney animator, Chad Stewart. He recently teaches The Animation Course, a four level course for students 11-18. I mean, I'm 19 now, but I'm taking Level 4 again so that I can get his help and advice for my short film.
I have started a facebook page (ThursdayThoughts@FabricOfSpace) and am using the Smurf Thinkers for an identifying image. This is a personal page with no commercial or money related purposes. Hopefully, you will allow me to continue using this image. I find it to be quite appealing.
Give credit where credit is do: clearly state that the image used as the icon and any other affiliated places was drawn by me and was taken from this website. Link it back to me and/or where the file is located on this site (this one).
I noticed just after sending you the message that I had not yet uploaded the changes to my website. From the logs, it seems you checked my site about 2 minutes before I uploaded them. You can check again to see how I did it.
I have literally no memory of whatever past behavior to which you are referring. I've been contently preoccupied with personal projects, classwork, my job, maintaining at least a handful of real-life friendships, and making rent with my sister. Forgive me, then, if I do not remember something petty and insignificant that happened on this Wiki.

Spongefan511 feels as if he offended you in the past in some way, so he just wanted to apologise. Seems as if you don't remember so I guess the offence wasn't that deep. He should interpret that as a "you're forgiven", if he will.
I had no idea you'd put the project on hold! Anyway, as my English teacher used to say, "everything is a work in progress." So, good luck with your other fanfictions and hopefully we'll see you here updating L&D some time!
Yeah, I've been working on other stuff for a few months, but I haven't lost my map back to the Smurf Village! I'm actually working on a short animation for one of my classes, which I will post on Youtube (and link back here) after it's finished. My professor was one of the character animators for the original TV series back in the 80's, so we've had some great conversations about it!
Your professor was one of the 80's cartoon animators? What are the chances in that? Not everyday that happens. The best of luck for your short animation, and we'll be happy to see you when you come back in due time.
Yeah! I was stoked. He actually suggested I incorporate something Smurfy into my final flour sack animation project, so I found a background and chose Greedy Smurf as the main person that the flour sack interacts with. I think it'll look great in my portfolio as soon as I fix a few little things before the final rendering. C:
I just wanted to say I really love your illustrations and stories, particularly your Johan & Peewit art. It really is like seeing stills from the episodes of the show I craved as a kid but never got. Do you have any other places you post stuff from that fandom, or is it all here? (I've got Johan & Peewit fandom stuff on other sites, but I'm not sure if it would be against the rules to repost any of it here in this community.)
She posts all of her Smurfs related artwork here considering this is the only Smurfs fandom site. Regarding other wiki-based activity, she mostly works on her Danny Phantom fanon series on the Danny Phandom wiki as according to this blog:
If you have a Johan & Peewit storyline, then feel free to post it here, just make sure you read the rules of conduct which can be found on the sites main page though.
@THDG: Thank you for your kind words! It always makes me smile to find other people who enjoy the Johan & Peewit side of the Smurfs series and my work surrounding it. I'm not particularly good at social media or posting work elsewhere, but if I have more to share in the future, I will be posting it all here.
Right now, I'm focusing more heavily on my Danny Phantom: Spectral Connections series, which was another HUGE childhood inspiration of mine. However, I never completely abandon a project, so in time, I'll be back working on my Light and Dark series.
So um, this is extremely out of the blue and all but you're really good at art and I just, kinda wanted to know if you have any advice or tips or anything on how to draw hands? I find them really difficult to draw, and I struggle a lot and can never do them right, so I just wanted to ask because I know you're really good at art. It's fine if not or anything, I just wanted to ask anyway
Hands are tricky for sure! Honestly, there are plenty of great tutorials and step-by-step guides out there online, but I find that the easiest ways to learn are by studying real hands (either in person or via photographs), and/or drawing freeelance sketches of the hands seen in your favorite shows. Like, if you wanted to draw Smurf hands, closely study how the Smurfs' hands are drawn (whether it's comic, cartoon, or CGI style). Keep practicing and sketch until you feel more comfortable drawing from memory. Every good artist uses reference!
If you do, they are all girls and are very powerful.
The Changeling Smurfs are ruled by Queen Smurfsails. Her daughters names are:
Chrystal Smurfette, Scarlett Smurfette, Crimson Smurfette, Emerald "Emmy" Smurfette, Sapphire Smurfette, and Ruby"Coco" Smurfling.
Trust me, they are AWESOME!
You must be new here~
You stay as far away from my pages as humanly possible. I have enough to handle with my own series, which is currently being completely revamped to remove all links to the Expanded AU, and there are still character pages missing illustrations, episode stories to revise and illustrate, and gallery pages to workshop.
That doesn't include working on my original projects for my career options in the animation industry or the assignments I'm currently working on for my BSA program classes in LA. I don't need your junk statements clogging up what's left of the free space in my brain, derailing from the attention span that is already being strained with multitasking -- and have I mentioned yet that I'm also working a part-time job at one of the biggest entertainment studios in the Hollywood area?
You've just inspired me with your latest edit of Hefty Smurf (LD Stories) to add a description of a character's physique for all the characters in my series. Although I am having trouble trying to describe Hogatha's physique.
