TarriPup's Profile Picture
Artist | Student
New Zealand

Name: Tarri
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blond
Astrological Sign: Libra-Scorpio Cusp
Birthmark: Red triangular mark. Turns purple in the cold.
Occupation: I don't have a job, I am but a lowly student... =P

My goal in life is to get my art to awesome specs and to write awesome stories.
And possibly animate the hell out of them if I have time (or if my animation skills end up being any good, lol).

Also, I have a commission running! Who woulda thunk it? From this point on, I will be open for commissions, but at this time, it's one slot at a time.
I will review how many slots I will have open after the current commission is done, as well as list pricings.
If you wish to inquire right now out of interest, please send me a note.

Commission Status

Who for: :iconhawkthephoenix:
Payment Status: Fully Paid.
Sketch: Completed.
Colour: Completed.
Shading: Completed.
Don't listen to the title. It's lying. It's lies, all of it!!

So what is really going on, then?

I'm glad you asked, me, who is typing in italics. My first commission went off without really a hitch. The commissioner (sadly, it's not Gordon) seems quite happy with the outcome, which is something I feel pretty damn proud of myself!! :D
Other than that, some of my message checking is now waning in a weird and random kind of way - I have checked a bunch of messages in some areas of my message centre, but not in others.
The notes seem to be half and half.
The messages I have checked so far are just the ongoing ones. The ones pertaining to journals, responses to my art (in this case, the fairy sketches), etc haven't felt my loving attention for the last 6 or so days, which is (funnily enough) when the old schoolin' thing kicked in again.
The new deviation list and polls are sort of hit or miss.

So, does that mean you are going to get right on top of these things, since you are currently jumping around Deviantart, writing this journal?

Hasty, aren't we, italic me? I can just see you sitting there, playing with your italian mustache. I was considering doing that, but then thought it might be better to put up a journal stating what was happening. After all, if I answer the rest of my message centre areas, it still does not tell everyone that it is starting to slow right up again, as predicted, and especially since I wanted to mention a bunch of things.
So journal first, rest of messages after. Quite possibly after this journal is written, but I am sooo tired.

HA! You're just weak.

Okay, italic me, that is just mean. I've been busy this week settling back into the school life with new classes for the year, and when I haven't been in class I have been writing out chapter summaries for my graphic novel, going over other ponderments for a fairy comic, also trying to figure out how to rewrite the first four chapters of a novel in such a clever way where I don't have to mention the protagonist's name in a 3rd person view.
On the graphic novel, Dreamspace / Splash, I have written out three more chapter summaries, so I can technically start thumbnails for the next chapter.
Based on some comments I have skimmed over regarding Fairy Girl Sketch by TarriPup, it seems a fairy comic with characters of this nature is popular with all three commenters - I think there were three, so writing up a plot for this is now also a goal.
Also I've been discussing the overall plot of a concept which the creator of said concept really hopes will make it into production, and quite frankly, so do I. I have been doing some concept art for her based on her initial drawings of characters, some of which you have already seen in my gallery.

Holy crap, you really expect to find time for all this and still get all your homework and assignments done?

I'm highly optimistic, italic me. And I know myself well enough that these personal projects tend to fall to the wayside, so I need to set up a structure and really stick to it. Certain days may only be designated for various projects, likely weekends. Since weekdays contain class and all, it means I will probably be spending less time staying on top of messages, which is probably the whole point of this journal.
But hey, I won't get anywhere if I don't set this up and stick to it.

And commissions?

I will accept commissions. Money is my friend.

Art trades?

Possibly, though probably unlikely given the coming time constraints.

Free requests?

A couple of you have recently asked me if I do requests, and I had to tell you that I don't - however since I hadn't returned to class yet, I asked what you wanted, and said it would only be a sketch.
I picked one, as I could only pick one, based on humanoid proportion practice, which is something I need to keep on top of. The other... I couldn't do.
As for future requests, don't count on it. But if you are feeling lucky, try your luck, I might just have a little bit of time to pump out a free sketch! ;)

So... now what?

Now the journal is done, italic me. I don't need you anymore.

Wait, wha-

BANG. missed.

Ah, dammit!

Have you ever felt like you should have been born the opposite gender? 

10 deviants said No. I have never felt conflicted in questioning my own gender and am quite happy, thank you very much.
9 deviants said I do get conflicted a lot in that I should be the opposite gender, but other times I'm fine being my current gender.
9 deviants said I've only thought about it sometimes, but I'm for the most part happy being my current gender.
1 deviant said Yes! I feel I should be the opposite gender!

You think Fairy's would be acceptable for nudity.... but, you have to hate everyone for acting like nazi's on nudist art. People like you are getting hunted down on that type of stuff for no reasons, don't ask me; just stupid f*cking social justice warriors think they are doing the world good. NOPE.

So you figured out which one it was that got deleted.
Yeah, it was total pornographic there, huh? The way one of them had his trading cards fall from his grasp, the way the other fairy was laughing about it, the way the two at the bottom had the expressions of surprise....
Yeah. Totally sexual.

Then I remembered... DA is american, right? Why wasn't I surprised by them perversing my art like that... :X

You could take it up against them by contacting them and arguing that they are fairies.

No, I read the policy I supposedly violated. It's vague enough as it is, and it can be construed, interpreted in such a way it would go against me anyway. Besides, who are they going to listen to most?
The artist? Or the bitcher?
I'm certain you know who's going to win that one.
The policy states if it's obvious, then it gets taken down without notice. I got a notice. Which means it falls under the category where it was up to the staff member to decide for themselves, making the decision biased, meaning that I am at the mercy of what they might believe, or if they happen to be the type who doesn't want to be bothered dealing with issues like this.

TarriPup Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2015  Student
Need to know what to do in what?

Dude, I just realized you're from New Zeland. I have family that lives in Christchurch, so I have Kiwi blood in me! I'd love to visit again one day, but that's difficult living in England ^^'.
TarriPup Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015  Student
Haha and Christchurch is close!! An 8-9 hour drive!! ...okay, maybe not close, but. :P
What are you doing all the way over there if you have kiwi blood in you? :P

Also, saw you follow me in Twitter!
Also, you never said you liked Homestuck, Mr. Mage of Mind~ :P
Nightmare060 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015
My dad moved to England with my mum decades ago. Never asked why XD. Seems we share quite a few fandoms as well! Being the Mage of Mind is what allows me to analyse MLP and other media so well =3. TBH you should have noted my OC's avatar, since his cutie mark is literally the Hero of Mind symbol XD.
TarriPup Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015  Student
Lol well the icon in your DA profile is kind of small, which is why I never recognised it until I saw the larger version in twitter. :P
I often have to wonder what mine is... a lot of times it has ended up as Space though. :P
What other fandoms do we share, I wonder? Pokemon? Legend of Zelda? xD
