Name: Tarri (nickname)
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blond
Birthmark: Red triangular mark. Turns purple in the cold.
Occupation: Student

Senior Student currently living in Invercargill, South Island, New Zealand, in my last year studying the Bachelor of Digital Media - Animation (Degree).

From the township of Dargaville in the Winterless North, on the island of the... uh... North Island, New Zealand, I gained my first Diploma in Digital Multimedia Production at Northtec in Whangarei (NI, NZ) before trading the warm-to-hot part of Aotearoa where no one knows what a winter is, to the most southern city this island archipelago, situated at New Zealand's butt.
But this butt blows no greenhouse winds to keep us warm - instead, I live in a realm of polar winds blowing in from the Antarctic, and where hail is bountiful.

I continue to study and live here, wondering what the hell I was thinking.

Along with the excitement of animating and drawing, along with the personal hell that are essays and research projects, I am also a published graphic novelist - sadly, not for sale under conventional means, and only one volume published at this time.

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.
The Bones of Essimer is a game concept, and the brainchild of a collaboration of Senior Year Digital Media Students at S.I.T. It is a major project of which we (as in, myself included) are in the process of creating a game cinematic trailer.
We are working very hard and are currently creating props (such as weapons, sets, costumes, as well as modelling using 3D software), to get the project done - but we need all the help we can get financially!!
We have created a PledgeMe campaign to raise money for the project, and any amount you can spare, we will be VERY grateful for!
There are rewards for donating, of course, starting at the $10 mark (New Zealand dollar), so at the very least check out our campaign - if you are able to donate, you might get a tasty little tidbit as thanks (depending on how much you can donate)!!


Seriously, guys... even if it's just a small amount you can offer, we will be VERY grateful!!
So please take a look, and thanks for reading!!
You guys are all great!! :D

This was a neat quiz. Guys guys, take the quiz and COMMENT what you got, and I MIGHT draw up a collage of some of us as our legendary selves! Which Legendary are you? --->…

Look just leave me alone!

Oh, so you decide to launch an unfair assault on someone, and then suddenly, when it comes back on you, you're the victim?
Doesn't feel nice, does it?
Well guess what! You brought this on yourself, there will always, ALWAYS be retaliation, there will ALWAYS be those that will feel sick at the sight of injustice, as such as you have provided other people to launch their collective defenses for Mel against you, and just seeing your responses made me sick to my stomach, to the point that I needed to actually waste my time on the likes of you. Not because I wanted to actually gang up on you, but because I can't sit idly by while you vomit such bile against Mel. You need to back the hell off and get the hell out.
If you have nothing good to say, then bugger off, no one needs the likes of you to make their lives shitty for any undeserved reason.

And word of advice.
If you ever decide to pull this kind of sick stunt again in a public place, you are going to have said public on your case.
So don't be such a damn fool, you bring this all on yourself because you don't think.

I doubt this, but I feel the need to ask, do you happen to take requests?
TarriPup Mar 15, 2014  Student Filmographer
Could you specify more? As in, I assume for art... do you mean requesting art trade, commissions, or are you just after free art?
Tibby-san Mar 15, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Trade or even free art. :meow:
TarriPup Mar 15, 2014  Student Filmographer
Free art is extremely unlikely - usually in terms of free art they are gifts for friends and people who I either respect greatly or have done something for me I greatly appreciate.
The reason I don't do free art is because I don't have a lot of time for personal art, heck sometimes it can take me days to finish a piece of art... not because it takes me a long time to do art, but because of how much time in the day I have - being a tertiary student doesn't really help in this freedom, especially in the final year of a degree. Hell, it's Sunday and I plan to go in to work on some assignment stuff... I now know not the meaning of breaks. xD

Art trades are not much more feasible given time constraints of the same reasons, but I would be a little more inclined to do art trades since it's like getting a little present in return. :meow:

Commissions I will definitely consider, though - since as a student I always need money, lol. I considered a part-time job while studying, but that would only hurt what time I need to study and work on my papers (some of which I am not too thrilled - Media Culture? Research? Anyone got fire for these?)... so I'm sorry if I have disappointed you, I mean I'm keen at the prospect of people wanting ME to do art for them, it makes me feel as though my art is actually worth something to someone, which fills me with fuzzies. :meow:
But again, I don't have much time in the day.

...but when I DO have some time, maybe I can. Probably the best time to ask me for a request is in the summer, when I have no assignments and such whatsoever. :meow:
So if you are really keen, think you can wait until summer break and then see what we can do then? :meow:
