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)
Lemurs (ringtail and rough)
Golden lion tamarins
Jaguars (black and spotted)
Lynxes (Siberian and Canadian)
Rats (fancy and crested)
Feel free to ask in advance if there is a specific species that you are looking for.
Thanks for reading!
