Yup, totally free!

Pretty much everything on my "to do" list (a slew of ACEOs, a couple of trades and collabs, and a gift or two) is traditional medium, so I really feel the need to dabble in photoshop to break up the lack of variety in mediums.

Do you have an animal character that you would like a photo manip of? If so, feel free to post a reference and/or description in this journal. You can also include a (short, please) summary of your character's personality, history, or preferred environment.  I'll pick one or two that strike my fancy! There's no time limit to reply, as I may keep up this journal for a while in case I'm in need of inspiration from time to time.

Don't feel offended if I don't reply to your comment or if I don't choose your character! I also won't tell you if I pick your character... it will just be a surprise one day. ;)

Please note that I do prefer to work with my own photographs, so you're more likely to be chosen if your character is an animal that I have taken photos of. I also enjoy natural or semi-natural designs over sparkly critters (not hating on bright animals, it's just a personal preference, especially when dealing with photo manips).

Here is a list of some of the animals that I have photographed, although please don't be afraid to submit something not on the list. I may have a photo of its species in my collection! I just don't have the time or space to list 'em all.

Wolves (Arctic and grey)
Foxes (red, silver, marble, fennec, and Arctic)
New Guinea singing dogs
Hyenas (spotted and striped)
Pandas (red and giant)
Polar Bears
Lemurs (ringtail and rough)
Golden lion tamarins
Amur leopards
Snow leopards
Clouded leopards
Jaguars (black and spotted)
Lynxes (Siberian and Canadian)
Rats (fancy and crested)
Prairie dogs
Przewalski's horse

Feel free to ask in advance if there is a specific species that you are looking for. :)

Thanks for reading!

Hi MoosongWolf! RareRoses here! Could you PLEASE do a photo manipulation of one of my characters? Thanks!

Name: Empress
Gender: Female
Visual Description: A tiger with a reddish colour coat and black stripes. She has a birthmark of a red rose on her side and is very well built. Her whole body is a work of art and can be described as very elegant. She has sharp claws and her eye colour is gold.
Personality: Distant, has a dark aura around her. Born to lead, Empress is the alpha of her pack and is the strongest out of all the females. Protective and Powerful are the best words to describe her. Although Empress is described to be very cold and stiff, every movement of hers is elegant and graceful, in which she takes pride in.
Back-story: An outcast of her pride, Empress lived with being tortured, discriminated and cast away. Due to the fact that her mother had given birth to her, a cub formed from the union of a tiger of nobility and an average tiger, she was seen as different and dishonourable. It wasn't until her mother died, the other tigers left her there to rot, only leaving her to mourn and grieve that Empress decided to take the first step. She fought with the alpha of her pack, won due to her rage of anger and became the current alpha. She worked hard to make every one of the tigers of the pack bow to her. She would never forgive them for what they had done and she would make them suffer under her rule. 

Thank you so much for your generous offer and i look forward to your artwork, even if it is not my character! :)

I would like to see a red fox.
He's a quiet one, loyal to his friends and a bit scrawny.
He likes looking at the clouds.

She has a regal air about her. Shes kind and caring. But can be cold and vicious. Protective.

(is really late with this)

I was hoping you could do a photomanipulation of my fursona, Lunero. He's an Emerine, which is a VERY distant relative of the bottlenose dolphin. Here's some pictures of him, the second one done by a friend of mine, and I drew the first one, the same friend coloring it. [link] [link] And his bio is in the description of this deviation. [link]

Thanks, God bless!

Wow. This is an amazing, really nice idea! Of course, my expectations of being chosen are limited, but I would love to see your interpretation of my character Amari.

She is a bengal tigeress queen of some ruins in Bangladesh. Her pelt is orange with a white underbelly and a myraid of black stripes. Perhaps depicting her amongst the ruins of her kingdom would be an interesting challenge. And you may add in a golden diadem something like this ([link]) if you are feeling extra creative.

Amari was once the ruler of a great kingdom of tigers. She was loved by many and greatly respected. But then something changed. Humans came and began destroying the forest. They killed animals with their carelessness and Amari sent some of her tigers to deal with the threat. They never came back. But the humans found them. Amari survived the slaughter of her family and those of her kingdom, but she never forgot the terrible things the humans did. She waits in the shadows for her chance at revenge.

Not a happy past, but one nevertheless.

As you can imagine, she is brave and kind but there is a ferocity deep within her that many would not believe exsisted. She does not let her past interfere with her future and she is quite optimistic but at the same time there is a sadness in her eyes.

If you do decide to create something that I know will be amazing, I will be quite surprised but very grateful.
