Badges 1st batch!

Here are some badges i'm making for friends that are/would have come to FCN this year. They glow in black light as well!

These usually cost $15.00-$20.00.
Or $20.00-$25.00 for a full body badge.

For those who do not know what badges are/their purpose: Badges are a way for furries to recognize each other at conventions. We are a mostly online-based culture so pictures of us in the real world really aren't shown too often. Even if we do, there's more likely someone is going to recognize a character than a person. XD We wear our character's badge or ID to show whom our names are in suit, and who we are as our character if we are out of suit or don't have one.

Figure Drawings (Warning: Nude)

Well in my quest for being able to draw humans, I say that I have improved. Being mostly an animal/fantasy artist, humans were really hard to grasp for me. But here are some from this semester that i'm especially proud of.

Because this city, this city is haunted...

City project for Foundation Drawing 2. Next post: Figure Drawings.

The title of the post is from Alexisonfire's "This Could Be Anywhere" in case you were wondering (;

Yeah sorry for the many posts, I'm just getting these up so you guys can see different mediums of what I do.


More close-ups coming soon of the window/beach one.

Murals would cost probably about $25-$30 an hour depending on space and detail. I use acrylic paint and I ask that the paint is paid for as well. I prefer the $.50 to $1.00 paint from Micheals, so don't worry about that, plus I work faster than most artists. Even though I do take my good time on them.

I do not do out of country jobs yet (no passport). I will do an out of state job though if my plane tickets are paid for and I have a place to sleep and am paid partly that day to get food to eat, until the mural is done. I will not do jobs during the week in August-May because of school. And depending on if I have summer classes June-Beginning of July. I will be available on the weekends Saturday morning-Sunday night (as far as I know, I don't know my schedule change for next semester). Local jobs, I will drive myself to your house, don't worry about that.

Time spent on blackboard frame: Est. 8 hours
Window/Beach: 3 different visits about 4-6 hours each time.

Side Note: It's almost 4 am and I danced at the Ball for 4 hours and i'm not resting why? Haha, I must be out of my mind.

Costumes Part 2

This is more of the furry side of my costumes. The last one is of my fursona, but I prefer not to show the head in this public blog since she's very personal to me and I like to keep that side of my art to myself., my family and close friends.

The first one is also a fleece character custom hat. That one is of my character, Starbar. I do custom hats for $30-$35 (depending on detail). I will also start doing general animal hats (canines, cats, birds, dragons, mythical creatures, dinos, i'm gonna try for a variety!) I'd probably sell the generals for about $25-$30 since they'd be premade and not as much detail would go into it as a custom character plus, things can be made in bulk easier on the general ones.

The second pic is a back view.

The third one is a white plain dragon tail. Those are about $35-$40 because they are so plain, but they are long and thick like it'd be proportionate to the human body.

Costumes Part One

Want a coat like this? Just contact me and I actually teamed up with my mom for this Dante coat. We do respect the integrity of copyright, so we will not make trenchcoats with all the exact details from a character if the coats/outfits are original designs. But we can give you a good base and point you to where you can get the supplies for the details and tell you how you can do it. (: My mom is a really talented seamstress (she doesn't know it!) and I really am trying to get her promotion and have her get her own commissions or join with me on this.

A coat like this would probably go for about $300-$500 depending on detail. (There's so much work and custom fitting that goes into these suckers, plus vinyl is VERY EXPENSIVE.)

The wig was cut from a longer wig, (oh man that was a pain) it took me and my mom 2 times to do it since I was thinking I could be a hair dresser since I dye my own hair. My mom warned me, I didn't take heed and I messed it up. But this wig is good since I just gave the scissors to my mom. She was all like "What do I look like? A hair dresser?" Ha! She could be. I guess being a multi-threat artist runs in the family!

The sword was bought (Halloween USA).
The boots were bought as well (Hottopic)
The pants, I forget where I got them from and the shirt too. But they are just a black tank top since i'm not going shirtless under that like the costume is in DMC3. And then the pants are brown or green cords.
Gloves are also bought (Hottopic)

If you have any trouble finding the gloves, i'm sure sites like would have them! Or check Amazon or a local Thrift Store might provide you with some goodies!


Hey people!
I just thought I'd introduce myself and why I'm here. My name is Stephanie and I am an animator/ costume maker/ mural painter/ maquette maker and overall freelance artist. And this blog is for more of my art promotion and for art that I feel comfortable putting out into the public. My LiveJournal is for my rants/daily happenings/ personal artwork.

I will post tails/costumes that I made for my first post. (:
