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!

[link] would you mind drawing him?
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.
