My Tumblr::icontumblr-centerplz:


I love to play video games, watch anime, listen to metal music, and watch horror movies. I'm a pretty nice person to be around, funny some say.


I also have a tumblr, follow me on those sites and I'll do the same. Let me know you're from DA though.

Going to be sending a Giclee print of my art to my friend.  I'm having it shipped to me first so I can check over the quality of the print.

I've gotten samples from them before, but never of a print I did so just wanting to really make sure it comes out correctly so Iíll know if I really want to use them in the feature or not since their prices are really great  -- Anyhow, I've never sent a print to someone before. Any tips and tricks on the best way to ship a print?

I want to buy some, " Do not bend" stamps or stickers but is there anything else I can do to really ensure the print stays in good condition till it get's to my friend? I know I could just use all the same stuff that it was shipped with in the first place, but one, I want to try to make it personal to my friend, since it's for his birthday, secondly, I want advice for this just in generall so I can learn the process of shipping art prints to customers because I want to start doing this as a side gig anyhow. I figured I'd use this as practice -- I also ordered a second print I'm getting shipped to me and I plan to sell that as well. Really new to print selling so just looking for advice or tips on this. -- Thanks in advance! :D

Hi, I'm Echo! I've been on this site for about 7 or so years now. -- I'm looking for a few artist friends/buddies to share my love for art with. I'm really passionate about it. I love watching artist youtubers, writing about it, sharing it, reading news about it and love being supportive to other artists. -- especially my friends! 

I've been feeling sort of lonely about it lately though. Art is mostly an individual type thing, but I would love to be able to talk to some people about the type of art I love.  music that inspires art, comics/manga, video games, movies, ect --  everything related to it and it's many different media forms. 

I know I won't be able to find an "Art buddy/friend" right away, but I've never had an exclusive art friend(s) -- I've always been the artist friend in my group and I want to talk to more like-minded people. People who might potentially have the same type of "ah-ha!" moments when I, or they cross a new thresh-hold in their artistic skills. 

So, here's a little about me and what I'm looking for!

I'm a metalhead, I love horror. Really love death metal, grindcore, and just the really rough stuff, I also like the progressive metal stuff and feel metal really helps me with doing artwork.  I also listen to vaporware music and a lot of anime J-pop type songs. Music, in general, is just really important to me, I have a playlist on Spotify for all types of moods and genres and I'm always making more!

 
I'm mostly a digital artist, I use a 10-year-old Wacom tablet and my software of choice is Clip studio paint. Which I am ALWAYS reading up about new ways to use the software and features, I try to keep up with update features and want to learn how to make comprehensive brushes on my own, one of these days. -- I try to draw regularly, especially since I have a patreon account. I'm always trying to "practice" and discover faster workflows. 

I also run a few Facebook groups relating to art and the fandoms I'm apart of. I'm currently hugely apart of the Final fantasy 15 community. My old group and I actually sent birthday cards to Ray chase ( the voice actor of Noctis ) and he put the cards on his mantle! I'm not apart of many fandoms, but the ones I am, I'm all in. -- I'm also a really big gamer. I have about 11 systems, not including the rig I built, and I'm really into RPG's. Especially JRPG's. 

I'm not as big of a manga reader as I use to be. But love Mangas like: Gantz, beserk, Wolf-guy: wolven crest, Junji ito works, ect. Mostly for how awesome these mangakas artwork is. I feel like I can learn a lot reading them and examine their works. I love getting " The art of" type books because they really allow you to see details, you otherwise wouldn't notice in a compressed piece. -- I do occasionally read Yaoi and yuri manga as well, but I wouldn't call myself a Fudoshi/fudanshi -- I do ship a lot of characters together often times, regardless of their gender. But I'm in the LGBT+ community, so it just sort of happens, often times. XD

Whew! -- That was a lot. Sorry for the overload but thought this information may be helpful in finding more like-minded artist friends. -- I really want to find some people who are super passionate about artwork. I don't really check my Deviant messages often, so if after we feel we have stuff in common, I would like to mainly communicate from discord, preferably.

 I would also prefer if it was peeps in their 20's, like I am. And are a similar skill level in art as me, as well. So we can have more of an even playing field and better easily help one another when it comes to art and be able to give equal give and take. 

My DA doesn't really have a lot of updated stuff of my art, but here's my Tumblr blog with more current WIP work: echo2themoon-art-nook.tumblr.c…

Oh, and I actually draw quite a bit of NSFW, ( in regards to nudity, manga-style ntsfw ) so it be nice if one was ok that type of stuff! 

Sorry for making this so long, I can't wait to start getting to know you all!
