About Me (FAQ's at bottom)
The name's Cyburill. I used to be a baby cybunny, but one day, in my genius attempt at taking some books from Loddy's room, I was caught. I should have known better, after all, Ck had gone away for a few months, and wasn't back yet. My brothers other brothers had always looked out for me, until Ck'd left and Magic snapped. Lod however, has never been all together there, if you know what I mean. He got pretty mad at me, and taped me to the wall in his room. Until then, he'd only ever done that to Cannie, Ck's boween. I guess I'm just lucky that way. He searched around under his bed while I whimpered on the wall. I knew better than to cry or scream. I'm a baby, not a coward. Lod found what he was looking for; a bottle filled with a vile looking potion, and fur around the cork. I gulped and watched as he next grabbed a jar full of spyders. He took one out, and dipped it into the bottle. It shrieked and hissed but he didn't look like he noticed. He held it by a leg and came towards me. I closed my eyes and tried not to think about what he was going to do next. He grabbed my nose and held it tight so I couldn't breath. Panicked, I gasped for breath through my mouth and he shoved the spyder in. It tasted like nothing I've ever had before and I nearly choked on it. He did this until there were no more spyders. Then he pulled me down off the wall and growled at me, the most he'd said in a long time. The floor began to waver as I fled his room, but I knew better than to tell Zero. She would, after all, only think I was being a baby.
The next thing I knew, I was a half mutant, and half baby. I hated how I looked, but Zero didn't seem to mind, and neither did my other two brothers. She said it had calmed me down, and helped my narcolepsy. So this is who I am now. And I think I'm okay with it.
Now, for the much awaited FAQ section! *drumroll*
What program do you use to make your pictures?
i use adobe photoshop elements 2.0, and a tablet.
How do you make your pictures?
i use lots of layers, usually at least three for each pet, and several for backgrounds also. to colour, i outline the picture in the colour i want it all to be, making sure that inside lines are slightly darker. then i fill in the white spaces left after the fill with the paintbrush using the 'behind' option. then dodge and burn the image. that's pretty much all i do. *shrug*
*NEW* i now have a coloring/shading tutorial Here
How old are you?
Not that it's overly relivant, i'm 19. my status says i'm 23, but at the time of my sign-up, i was still under the whole 'do not give out any personal information' idea. and didn't know how safe this site was.
What's your real name?
My real name? what's a real name. O_O my name's Zero. and you may call me by it.
Where do you get your ideas from?
Ideas... lemme think... *shrug* no idea. to quote arttimomy brain's messed up. they come from there."
Can you draw me _______?
No. i don't do commissions anymore. i'm sick and tired of drawing people stuff, and getting only a thank you, in return. and yes, i know that's all that the TNT allow.
Can we do an art trade?
If you're a decent artist, i'd love to. i don't mean that in a nasty way, it's just that because i put a lot of time and effort into my portion of a trade and expect the same amount of effort in the picture i recieve.
You sound scary/mean.
(okay so that's not really a question) Actually, i'm not really. the only people i'm even remotly not nice to are scammers, hackers, art theives and random idiots. if you're taking the time to read this, chances are you don't fall into any of the above. (really, i'm actually a pushover ._.)
Are you really as crazy as you sound/act? (why?)
well... i prefer the term gifted. or special. take your pick... why? i'm not sure. it might have somthing to do with my habit of not sleeping. i dislike sleep.
Why don't you sleep?
If you really must know, it has to do with some weird aquired seer gift. any sleep i get isn't usually pleasant. that's all you need/want to know.
You mentioned in your FAQ that you're 18, does that mean you're in college, or highschool right now?
good question. aparently i'm in college. studying english. more specifically creative writing. though strangely, i want to become a computer animator, or some such thing.
Do you/your pet, want to RP with me/my pet?
i myself don't roleplay. however, my pets do. and they'd probably be more than willing to rp with you, (that means i rp with them) on the condition that you pardon me for poor spelling, do not use chatspeak, and keep in mind i've only rp'ed a few times.
I see on his/her lookup that Lod is a *insert color* *insert pet* but all the pictures you have of him/her show him/her as a plushie zafara, why's that?
Two words: Lab Ray. HE'S only using it until he turns back into a he though. then it's off to the rainbow pool, and training school (i'm a poet. i didn't know it- i'm sorry, that was really bad.)
Will your pet date my pet?
Honestly, i don't think you want your pets going anywhere near mine. they're all slightly...psychotic. and none of them is mentally capable of fathoming a relationship beyond friendship.
ART TRADES and OTHER RULE TYPE STUFF^
1.) If you want me to draw you a picture that's fine, neomail me and ask. But please don't mail me constantly about how 'great my art is' it's okay to ask in the SAME neomail about me drawing you a picture. I don't mind, really I don't. I just hate it when people beat around the bush, or try to flatter me a bunch before asking. Get to the point, I'll probably accept.
*NOTE* Fan mail IS appreciated, and I'm more than likely to be kind and civil to you. I just need to have a backbone in the rules, it's about the only time I ever show any. I'm not always this mean… honest.
2.) When neomailing, please note I loath chatspeak and caps lock (for the whole message anyway) if you can't take the time to type it all out, it's not worth saying. (lol is about the only thing I tolerate.) Oh, and don't neomail me if it's neofriends only, or if your inbox is full. That's just annoying.
3.) 'Lyk omg I h8 how meen u r!' oh good, there's something we can agree on. Actually, I don't mind flame mail. *shrug* if you get frosted for it it's your own fault, and it warms my heart to see justice done. Flame away.
4.) NOW, request rules. I don't mind drawing your pet, on the condition you don't enter the picture into the beauty contest, picture contest or any other contests (on site or not). I drew it, therefore, it's MY picture. You're welcome to use it on your pet page, or lookup, but don't take my name off. Again, it's mine, and I will report you if I see you claiming my artwork as yours. (which means taking off my name)
5.) Another thing, don't claim my art is yours. Or steal it. the results vary, but I've heard anyone who does meets my evil twin. She hates art thieves, and well, she's quite mad. *cough*crazy*cough* Don't upset her. She has sources and lacks rationality.
6.) When asking me to draw your pet, you MUST:
*specify a background (eg. Forest, field, etc.)
*tell me which pet (full name or it won't come up on search)
* have a reference picture
*Poses and petpets are optional. You can tell me how you want them, or I can surprise you.
7.) LAST rule. Okay, it's not really a rule, but I'm going to be putting a lot of TIME and EFFORT into your pictures, and honestly, I'm quite proud of them. Therefore, chances are I'll submit them to the art gallery, with your pet's name attached, so that everyone knows who's pet it is. *shrug* your pet gets fame, and I get to smile because I drew it. if it seems a little odd, just remember I'm doing this and not getting np, items or anything else out of the deal. That is unless you feel like donating to my Starving Artist fund.
STARVING ARTIST FUND:
A fund designed for me and my pets so that nice people like you can help us. It's a donation, which means it isn't mandatory, but much appreciated if you donate stuff. Anything. Though Lod likes codestones, dubloons and battle weapons. Zero's happy with np, petpets and well… anything. Again, it's BY DONATION, and NOT MANDATORY (must put emphisis on that because TNT doesn't like people paying other people for art.) therefore, it's donation only. Donation do you hear me?! *shakes fist at sky*
*UPDATE* You may now DONATE to the Starving Artist Fund Here.
