Even though I’m behind in class I couldn’t take it anymore and HAD to paint SOMETHING. Just a small one. Sigh.

School has been driving me a little crazy recently so I wanted to do a quick ‘just for me’ doodle for some fun. This is my version of the Goat Princess as a Disney Fairy. She would be a Dust-talent fairy involved in Pixie dust alchemy.

Anonymous asked: What inspired you to make Goatlings?

Soooooooo many things! It would take to long to explain. X3 But the one thing that really made up my mind was something one of my art history instructors said. When I was feeling down, and unsure about the future, he simply said: “Follow your passion.” That really stuck with me and made me think. That one bit of advice eventually led me to make Goatlings! Basically, I’m following my passion. :3

Anonymous asked: Where do I go to get a commission from you and how much do they usually cost? I love your work.

Ohh! Wow thank you so much! Ive been so busy with school and Goatlings.com Ive kinda neglected my fantasy art and main art site. :c But I will still consider commissions when someone is interested! The art is slightly outdated, but here is my commission page with all the details:

Some designs I’m working on for Illustration for Consumer Products & Licensing class. Since I’m burdened with midterms and sleep deprivation I decided Id go ahead and draw something more complicated and time consuming than I would normally. I’m awesome.

Character references for my Visual Development for Web and Mobile Gaming class. I’m not making a real game, the stuff I make for this class is just for practice and mockups. ;3 You may recognize the Goat Princess if your a Goatlings fan but the story of the second character is a secret for now. I will leak that hes a BOY though! A lot of people have been thinking hes a girl and thats okay because I designed him to be a little girly looking. :)
