I am against censorship of almost all forms, and as such I will not block people for merely disagreeing with me, however, I don't take kindly to stupidity, and as such I will not take part in any arguments with dipshits incapable of making a legitimate, cogent point, and you will be invalidated and utterly dismissed if you repeatedly use any of these common fallacies after they've been pointed out as such.

This includes but is not strictly limited to;

-anyone who responds with an insult in lieu of any form of argument

-anyone who repeats their initial argument with no additional points, clarifications, or reiteration

-use of spam

-obvious trolls

-those who use consensus as an argument

-those who use ad hominem arguments

-people who don't understand the meaning of criticism

If you have a valid grievance and a cogent point against me, and you want to debate that, have at it, good sir.

Art criticism:
--Proper; An examination of quality, technique, style, etc, or debate over the message of a piece if it contains one.
----Examples: "That part is shaped wrong" "The shading is inconsistent" "This is genuinely, objectively, and unavoidably detrimental" "The idea you are directly promoting is arguable"
--Illegitimate Nonsense; Insubstantial insults, matters relating to not liking the subject (with the exception of said subject being poorly executed or the exception previously mentioned), and complaints in regards to a matter of you disliking or finding something personally gross.
----Examples: "Don't draw ponies, they suck" "Don't do porn of this" "This fetish is disgusting/wrong" and most of all "I DON'T WANT TO SEE THIS, YOU WILL TAKE MY BUTTHURT SERIOUSLY!!!11!!!!"
So, as many of you may have noticed, I've been getting stuff done and put out with increasingly long gaps of time in between. Sometimes it's due to technical muck ups and what not, but most of the time, it's just me taking forever to get them done, often with a few glitches in the mix.

I have more inspiration for material than I could describe in a year, but that's just it. With all the things I want to do, all the ideas of others I want to bring to fruition, and all the styles and subjects I want to try... I'm just suffering from burnout. I've been working on art even when I don't want to, but I've got so many projects that despite this they're not getting done. I really hate seeing how long it's been since I posted my last submission, when I know that there's a lot I have to put forward. I've come to realize I've bitten off more than I could chew.

As a result, I'm making a few changes. First, I'm taking a short break from it all. Second, I'm putting forth a new rule; no more requests, and no more commissions, only suggestions. 
(NOTE: Before I go any further, allow me to define the difference between a request and a suggestion. With a request, the art in question is being done specifically for the requester, and to his/her liking. A request is more the essence of the viewer than the artist. With a suggestion, you simply give me an idea, and I may take it. Though it comes from the viewer, I can change it, pervert it, corrupt it, bastardize it, and/or reverse it in any way I please. It is a product of the artist far more so than the viewer.)
Finally, I will be refunding most of my current commissions. Now don't worry, I'll still do them all, but I will be doing them at my leisure, and as such it wouldn't feel right to take their money.

PS: A lot of this aforementioned inspiration comes from the fact I'd like to broaden the subjects I cover. Obviously I'm a big fan of pony-vore and such, but I can do more than just that. I was thinking of starting with a voracious Ninetales I've been working on. Some of my other ideas were possibly centaurs, other things that are a tad more feral. I hope you look forward to it.

That's a tad bold of you to ask, actually.
No offense, but I really don't know you to any point where you could fairly expect a favor like that, and this is somewhat short notice either way.

As with anyone, feel free to send me a request/suggestion, but please don't get your hopes up.
My name is Josh and i'm autistic ^^
yeah but my birthday is this sunday :D

Just send me a note telling me what you want, and we'll see if I can or will. With this kind of time frame, I wouldn't get my hopes up.

wave forgive the question
what is the price of your drawings?
ccgdragon2 Feb 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I can't tell you for sure without knowing what you want. I only take what I'm interested in, and the price varies depending on how familiar I am with what you want, and how complex it is.
but I need to ask something else
as you charge?
sorry for my english I am begginer

Just send me a note. Tell me what you want me to draw, and I'll tell you what'll cost if I decide I want to do it.

Hello, do you take requests??
ccgdragon2 Feb 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It's pretty rare that I do anymore. Feel free to send me a note, but don't be offended when I say not to expect anything.
