EDIT:  Thanks for everyone who volunteered, currently all the slots are filled.  Keep watching for the finished memes! :)

I'm kind of in the mood for a collab right now, so I was wondering if anyone would be interested in doing the switcharound meme with me?  I've done two before, here's the one I uploaded to my gallery:

Switcharound meme by Wickfield

Basically it's where 3 people get together to swap sketches, lineart, and coloring according to the template, though I also saw where someone did a full-length version which could be fun too: zetrystan.deviantart.com/art/S…

Anyway if you are interested just note me or leave me a comment, although I'll be choosing the parts rather than picking on a first-come-first serve basis.  Let's do it! :D
Hey guys, I know there's been a shocking absence of Futurepuff-related art over here but I've posted up a long entry over on my Tumblr with literally all my ideas/headcanons for the AU I've created in the past year.  Check it out if you get a chance! 

dust-in-my-eyes.tumblr.com/pos…
Over the years I've received many questions about my artwork, from topics about my tools to my experience to whether I've ever worked for Cartoon Network or Disney! I thought it would be a good idea to combine all the answers in one place so I decided to write up this proper FAQ. I've tried to include the more common questions along with some other useful information, but if you have a question that is not covered here please feel free to comment or message me.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



PERSONAL INFO


What does your username mean?

I picked the username “Wickfield” after a character in the book David Copperfield.  I liked the character and the way it sounded!

What are your other hobbies
When I’m not drawing I like to sew (sometimes I make my own clothes), read, study history, and collect American Girl stuff. I also like to cook if I have an interesting ethnic recipe to try!

What are your favorite cartoons? 
Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, My Life As a Teenage Robot, and Sym-Bionic Titan.

What are your favorite pairings?
I don’t do much shipping, but I’m always a sucker for a one-sided romance. :D  My OTP is definitely Dee Dee/Mandark from Dexter’s Laboratory!



ART PROJECTS

What is Fooled?
Fooled is a project I began in 2012 as a contest entry for Disney-club. The prompt was to create a piece of art based on a movie concept that Disney ultimately discarded, and I decided to model mine after a film called “The Fool’s Errand,” which involved “ a court jester who goes on a mythical journey to return peace to his kingdom.“  After working on the art and characters for a few years, in 2014 I wrote a novel about their adventures.  However, I do not have any plans to create an animation or movie based on the story.

You can support my work by purchasing Fooled on Amazon here!

What is Ego Trip? 
Ego Trip is a TV movie based on the cartoon Dexter’s Laboratory, it is a favorite among fans of Dexter’s Lab.  I do a lot of fanart based on my own designs for an Ego Trip version of Dee Dee, since she did not appear in the movie.  You can view those drawings here.

What are the Futurepuffs? 
My Futurepuffs AU is set 13 years after the cartoon The Powerpuff Girls, in a version of Townsville that is a little bit darker and futuristic.  The Powerpuff Girls – now simply called The Powerpuffs – are 18 years old and stronger than ever.  The concept was largely inspired by the movie Ego Trip mentioned above and is my personal take on a continuation/reboot of the original show. 

Right now, I don’t have any plans to do a comic, and I do not plan to pitch my idea to Cartoon Network.  I am just focusing on developing the storylines and working on individual pieces of art which you can view here.

Are you going to do more Historically Accurate Characters? 
I currently consider my Historically Accurate series finished, and I do not take requests for new or additional characters.  However, I may draw additional designs if I suddenly get inspiration.  You can view the full gallery of historic designs here.

 

ART PROCESS

What programs do you use?
I use GIMP for sketching, coloring, and painting backgrounds.  I used to use GIMP for my lineart, but since 2014 I use Inkscape to create the lineart for all my drawings.

What tablet do you use? 
I use a Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet.

What is your process? 
I will start out by sketching a thumbnail with pencil on a scrap of paper.  I usually keep a big sheet of paper in my bedroom and doodle around when I have the spare time.  When I find something I like I will recreate the thumbnail as a preliminary sketch in GIMP, often with references to get the pose correct (sometimes I will even photograph myself for tricky anatomy).  After this sketch I will do a more defined sketch on another layer, then move the file into Inkscape to make the lineart.  Once the lineart is complete I will move the drawing back to GIMP to add the colors and any finishing touches. If the drawing is more cartoony, I may upload a pencil sketch directly into Inkscape then move to GIMP for the colors.

How long does each drawing take? 
I work slowly, so my drawings can take anywhere from 1 hour for a cartoon PNG, to 20+ hours for a fully rendered painting.  On average a full-body, colored lineart drawing will take around 6-8 hours.  And of course finding references adds additional time – this is why I am not the most prolific artist on DA! :D

 


ART EXPERIENCE

Why did you want to be an artist? 
I am not at all an “artsy” person in daily life, but ever since I can remember I've gotten feelings or ideas in my head that I just have to get out somehow, and usually I set them free, so to speak, in the form of a drawing.  I’ve never had a wish to make lots of money through art, for me drawing is a pleasant, rewarding pastime.  I especially like fanart because it is a chance to draw tributes to things that are important to me and that I enjoy.  I also love having the chance to create something that didn’t exist before, that hopefully makes the people that see it happy or inspired, the way other people’s art inspires me.

What artists inspire you?  
I am inspired by a lot of artists, including Genndy Tartakovsky, Craig McCracken, Rob Renzetti, Bruce Timm, Jose Garcia Lopez, Sandro Botticelli, and Milo Winter.  Some of the movies that have influenced my style include Aladdin, Pocahontas, and The Road to El Dorado, and I also greatly admire historic stylized art (Greek, Persian, Japanese, etc.).  Basically if an artist creates interesting lineart with strong colors, then they’ve got my attention. In addition to the professionals mentioned above, I am also daily inspired by many pieces of art on Tumblr, DeviantArt, and Pinterest.

Did you go to art school? 
No, I went to school for business and earned my BSBA degree in 2014.  I’ve actually never taken any art classes, although I did have Art Appreciation and World History of Art in my sophomore year.

How did you learn to draw?
For me learning to draw has been a long process of experimentation my whole life.  There is no quick way to become a good artist!  When I was a kid I would draw my favorite animals, cartoon characters, and toys.  I never went to art school or even really used books, I just drew what I felt like and got better over time through repetition.  Around the time I turned 13 I consciously began trying to improve my art, so I would look at pictures from magazines or books and try to copy them in my sketchbooks. 

When I was younger I thought the “best” art was the most realistic, painterly kind of art.  Once I joined DA, however, I realized that all different art styles are valid.  Once I decided my favorite “style” involved lineart and flats, as well as cartoons, then I was able to focus and imitate the work of similar artists to really improve my skills.  As you can tell from my gallery I still love to copy other styles, and I learn something new from every different style I attempt. And I am nowhere near finished learning – in fact I still have a long way to go!

How long have you been drawing? 
I have been drawing for over 20 years – I started when I was 4 years old in 1995, drawing lions from The Lion King. Since then I’ve been drawing non-stop, although I only began posting my art online in 2011.

Do you work for Cartoon Network or Disney?
No, I am not associated with (and have never been approached by) any professional company.  I am just a dedicated fan.

Are you a professional artist? 
No, art is my favorite hobby, I would not enjoy it nearly as much if it were my career. In my daily life I am a very left-brain person, so drawing helps me to express myself and it makes me feel less stressed, too.  If it became just another chore, it would lose its magic. The only time I am paid for my work is when I take commissions here on DA.

Have you considered animation?
The closest I’ve gotten to animation is creating a few storyboards for Fooled.  Otherwise, I have no interest or skill in animation, but if you would like to create an animation based on my art you are more than welcome!



ADVICE AND TUTORIALS

How do you overcome art blocks? 
I have art blocks every few months, and since I only draw as a hobby and not as a professional, I have found that the best course of action is to simply accept the block and use it as a time to focus on my other hobbies.  If I try to force myself to draw, then any art I create in that period looks and feels forced as well.  Usually after the break that the art block provides, I return to my artwork refreshed and with a new perspective that makes my art even better. 

Do you have tips on how to improve my art? 
PRACTICE!  I don’t consciously practice very much (and if I did I’m sure I would be a lot better) but I do try to incorporate a new technique or push myself every time I start a new drawing.  Pay a lot of attention to everything you look at, stare at pieces of art or photos of people, and eventually your brain will absorb some of that information and it will be there when you go to work on your next drawing.  Always be sure to use references when you need them, and never try to rush your drawings just to get them finished.  The one single thing that has improved my own art most of all is taking the time and enjoying the process, which ALWAYS always leads to a better finished product.

Do you have drawing tutorials? 
Yes, you can view them here. If you have a specific question about how I did something in a drawing just message me.

Can you share your resources for historical costuming? 
Yes!  Most of my resources are linked in the descriptions of my historical drawings, but I have posted additional information and resources in this Tumblr post.



REQUESTS, COMMISSIONS, AND TRADES

Do you take art requests, commissions, or trades? 
I do not take requests, and I only do art trades with close friends.  I do offer commissions, you can find more information in this journal.

Will you draw my OC?  Will you do the artwork for my project? 
I do not work for free.  If you are interested in hiring me to create a drawing for you, you can check out my commission journal for basic prices or note me for additional information.

Why are commissions so expensive? 
My commissions are actually fairly priced, for custom work I charge $20/hr based on rates from other artists with comparable skills.  Though you might see cheaper prices elsewhere, it is because most artists undervalue their work and are selling themselves short, which I refuse to do.

Do you take point commissions? 
No. I have no use for DA points, I only accept payment through Paypal. 

Why don’t you take fanart commissions? 
In the United States where I live it is actually illegal to charge money for fanart, since it is based off someone else’s copyrighted work. While many artists get away with selling fanart, I prefer not to profit on the work of others and focus on original characters and concepts instead.

Why don’t you take NSFW commissions? 
While I don’t oppose NSFW art in general, most of the NSFW requests I’ve received in the past have been uncomfortably detailed and personal. I decided to implement a flat policy refusing all NSFW requests and I prefer for that boundary to be respected.  Thanks!



PERMISSIONS

Can I use your art for personal use? 
You may use my art for icons, banners, and backgrounds if you provide a credit and a link back to my DA page.  You may also print, share and save my artwork as long as you do not offer it for sale.  However, you may not upload my artwork to your DA gallery or claim it as your own.

Can I use your art for commercial use
No, you may not use my art for your financial gain in any form whatsoever.  I have and will take legal action through a DMCA copyright claim when my work is infringed.  If you see my art being used for commercial purposes or posted for sale, please comment or note me to let me know, thank you!

Can I draw/cosplay your designs? 
Of course, I love it when people are inspired by my work!  I only ask that you not use my art for sexualized purposes, and that you credit or tag me as the original artist (preferably with a link to my DeviantArt account).  Be sure to send me a link or photo so I can see what you made! :highfive:



MISCELLANEOUS

Will you join my event/contest
I appreciate any invitations and will definitely check your contest out, but I usually do not have time to participate.

Do you read comments on your art? 
Yes, and I try to respond to as many as I can.  Every comment means a lot!

Do you have a Tumblr account?
Yes, here is the link

Hey everyone, as many of you know from my recent uploads I was able to publish my first novel, Fooled, this February using Amazon's Createspace program.    
However, without the visibility of a major publishing house not many readers will be able to find my book in Amazon's listings.  So, I'm coming to you to help me out!  



I would love it if you could take a minute to review "Fooled" on its Amazon listing page.  You don't have to have purchased a copy of Fooled, if you got a chance to read it here on DA or on the web serial blog where it was originally posted your opinion will be just as helpful.  And I'll even be bold and say it doesn't have to be a positive opinion...just enough to reach the 50-review threshold to make the book more prominent on Amazon.

Here is the link to Fooled's Amazon page:

Hey everyone, I wanted to write this quick journal entry to let you guys know that my updates here on DA have been a little sporadic due to some household responsibilities I've had to take care of over the past few weeks.  Due to family health issues (which I've talked about before) I'm responsible for the majority of the housework, and I've also been working to help my dad clear stuff out of storage so needless to say I've been pretty busy!  I still have some art plans waiting in the wings but I want to save them for when I have more down-time to devote to making them look just right.  Thanks for understanding and as always thanks for watching!

Also I drew a Future!Keane :)

Since I ran my Futurepuffs AU contest over the last month a lot of people have commented on my designs and some of the conversations have helped me formulate some scenarios and additional info which I thought might be interesting if you’ve been following this series, but it’s long so I put it under the jump! 

I’m not sure how it would be useful but maybe I can work some of it in to additional scenes or drawings some time.  Oh and I created a board on Pinterest with some of my Futurepuffs/Ego Trip refs which you can view here:

www.pinterest.com/thewickfield…


- Since they need to be handy to fight crime in the city, the Powerpuffs’ college of choice was  the prestigious (and conveniently situated) Townsville University

- Blossom planned on going to Townsville U since she was in kindergarten, and loves how thrilled the Professor was with her acceptance…

- But Buttercup is also able to attend Townsville U on a sports scholarship (after all, there weren’t technically any rules saying superheroes couldn’t play sports!)

- Buttercup studies law enforcement and privately respects Blossom, but  would never admit it so they have a good-natured sibling rivalry while they attend school

- Bubbles decides not to go to college yet (which devastates the Professor lol) and dreams of becoming an artist.  She would have several humorous “odd jobs” in different episodes though she consistently helps out as a substitute teacher at Pokey Oaks, where Ms. Keane still teaches the children of Townsville.

- At some point Professor Utonium probably tries his hand as a substitute Professor at Townsville U, much to Blossom and Buttercup’s mortification

(I actually wouldn’t want to focus very much on school life since that is boring but this is just stuff I had rambling around in my head haha)

- I like to think the Professor might have a not-evil girlfriend character make some appearances, since there really need to be more female characters in a PPG series - I just don’t have any ideas for one!

- Buttercup still doesn’t have a special superpower, but she’s mastered a lot of boxing and martial arts to develop her own skill set and ensure her position as “the toughest fighter”

- Bodysuits are popular in future!Townsville so the Powerpuffs’ supersuits are not all that unusual -  I imagine a scene where the PPG try to experiment with other fashions but they never get a chance to because whenever they put on something cute they have to fight crime and it gets ripped to shreds!

- Sedusa’s gray strand in her hair is “dead” now and can’t attack like the others.  Because of her botox and bodysuit she squeaks when she moves, and her face is so numb she can withstand any kind of blows or punches to the head giving her extra defensive abilities! :D

- Because of her connections Princess sometimes has information that would benefit the Powerpuffs and she’s always extremely obnoxious about it.  She would probably try to run for Mayor (a la Penguin) against Bellum and cannot figure out “What Bellum’s got that I haven’t got!”

- I am totally crediting JoeyWaggoner on DA for the explanation on how Mojo got a robot arm, you HAVE to read his comic here: wickfield.deviantart.com/art/M…

- Since this AU is largely inspired by Ego Trip the city is more dilapidated in the Future.  It’s quite smoggy by day but beautifully lit up at night with Tokyo-inspired neon lighting (which makes sense to me since the actual PPG cartoon had so many Japanese influences).

- ALSO I’m wanting to think that the Girls took a break from crime-fighting, which is how the City got to be in worse shape, and have now returned to kick butt.  But I can’t think of a scenario where that would work…anyway I think it was probably the original Mayor’s fault if Townsville started to deteriorate which is why Miss Bellum was finally voted in as Mayor.


(This is a duplicate of the post I did on Tumblr but I know many of you don't follow me over there so I copied it here as well.  :D)

Thank you to everyone who participated in my Futurepuffs AU contest, there were so many awesome, creative entries it was tough to choose just three!  Fortunately my sister Aidylvice helped me with the judging and these are our selections for the winners.

FIRST PLACE:
Mojo Could Use a Hand by JoeyWaggoner
JoeyWaggoner's comic was super fun, I can't imagine Mojo losing his arm in any other way!  We especially appreciated the attention to detail in every comedy-packed panel.

SECOND PLACE:
Tumblr Of5sjpbyko1r30eaio1 540 by Wickfield
JigokuHana  created a lovely sense of atmosphere in her lighting and coloring, plus it's always awesome to see the girls tearing into a giant monster!

THIRD PLACE:
We need to talk by toongrowner
We just loved toongrowner's story-telling in this image, and the detailed background helped set this entry apart from the rest!


Congratulations winners, and keep up the great work! :clap:


P.S.  I'm thinking about holding a PPG-themed Livestream on Saturday, November 19 in honor of the series' 18th anniversary, but I know a lot of folks will be preparing for Thanksgiving!  Do you think you could make it?



About a month ago I posted my concept for aged-up Powerpuff Girls on my Tumblr.  To my surprise, my post got over 32,000 notes and lots of wonderful feedback!  Since then I added drawings of many other characters and dubbed my AU “Futurepuffs”.   Now, for the month of October I’m going to run a contest to expand their world with help from you!

Contest deadline: November 5, 2016

-
About the Futurepuffs AU:
My Futurepuffs AU takes place 13 years after the original show, set in a version of Townsville that is a little more futuristic and little bit darker, too!  The Powerpuff Girls – now simply called The Powerpuffs – are 18 years old and stronger than ever.  But they still have villains to face and many of them have found ways to increase their own powers as well.

I’ve drawn versions of the main characters and several villains, these are the designs you will be using in this contest.  You can check them out below!

About the challenge:
For this challenge, you will be creating a deviation set in the Futurepuffs AU.  Fanart, fanfiction, and cosplay are all allowed.  In order to enter, you must include at least one of my Futurepuff characters in your entry.  But you don’t have to choose the PPG – for instance if you want to focus on Mojo, or the Professor, or Miss Bellum that is perfectly fine!

Happy Birthday Powerpuffs!After a tiring day of crime fighting, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup returned home and changed out of their superhero outfits.
"I hope tonight there won't be any monsters or bad guys. I want to spend my 18th birthday with an actual party with pizza or a concert," grumbled Buttercup.
"Yes, great idea, Buttercup! We should call Mitch, Robin, Mike, Elmer, and Harry," exclaimed Bubbles excitedly.
"I'm already on it, girls," Blossom said. "In the meantime, we should get something to eat so we can celebrate our birthday properly. We don't want to show everyone how cranky we are on an empty stomach."
"Yeah, yeah. I much rather eat pizza. We will be too stuffed to even celebrate or eat pizza," Buttercup waved away indignantly.
Blossom scowled at her sister. "We can't rely on pizza filling us up, since it's not healthy. And besides, Buttercup, you never take care of yourself. Even when it comes to special events. So make sure to shower and look nice for our birthday."
Buttercup rolled her eyes

I'm pretty excited, I just hit the 2500 follower mark!  It's hard to believe I've been on here for almost five years already in July.  That's a pretty respectable number of followers for 5 years though!  I should probably do something to celebrate but I don't really have any ideas, but I want to thank everyone who's watched me or faved or commented on any of my drawings.  You guys are the best!
Hey guys, after all the fun we had doing the Dexter's Lab anniversary livestream, I've decided to do another mini-livestream at 8 PM EST on Saturday, May 28th to watch the TV movie Ego Trip!  It will be playing over on my Livestream channel here:

I hope to see you there!
Hey guys,
This is your reminder that my Dexter's Laboratory 20th Anniversary marathon will be showing tonight from 7-9 PM EST. Watch it at the link here:

original.livestream.com/wickfi…

I hope to you see you there!

EDIT: For those of you who missed the marathon you can watch the recording here!

It comes complete with nerdy commentary by yours truly.  ;)
So the 20th anniversary of Dexter's Laboratory is coming up at the end of the month and I've been racking my brain for ideas to celebrate it.  I'm wondering, would any of you guys be interested in doing kind of like a Livestream of my Top 10 episodes, maybe with voiceover chat?  Or something similar?  I was thinking a tentative date of April 30 since that is a Saturday (two days after the actual anniversary), it would probably run 1.5- 2 hrs if my calculations are correct (so maybe 7-9 pm EST).  

If you think you'd log on to check it out PLEASE comment to this journal.  I'm trying to measure interest in this idea so that I don't long on on a Saturday night to an empty room (which is totally possible given my track record, lol).
Hi guys, if you are subscribed to my deviations you can probably see that in honor of April Fool's Day I've uploaded my entire Fooled story so you can read it here on DA!  

In fact I have created a new folder for my writing because I hope to post some of my better works here in addition to my drawings.  I re-posted some old Dexter's Lab fics you can read as well because I am currently working on an Ego Trip fanfic I'm really excited to share with you guys.

Here is the new folder: wickfield.deviantart.com/galle…

I hope you'll check out some of the stories, leave me a comment if you do! :)
I certainly wasn't expecting a holiday surprise in the mail today, but when I got home after shopping for posole ingredients guess who was sitting on the front porch? My prize for :icondisney-club:'s Coloring Page Contest! StephLS made this awesome stuffed bear out of Olaf fleece. He was way bigger than I thought he would be and has already been great for a cuddle. Now I just need to think of a name for him. Would Olaf be too obvious? :)



(edited to hopefully fix the image...)
I was tagged by :icondomnics: to give 10 facts about myself and answer 10 of his questions!  So here we go:

For the facts (you probably know most of these anyway):
1) When I was 7 I got a picture of a dinosaur I drew in Highlight's For Children's Dino Don section. 
2) I only play one app game, and it is My Singing Monsters.
3) I collect doll stuff/historical miniatures.
4) I am terrible at anything remotely athletic.
5) My favorite author is Charles Dickens (is there really any reason to read anyone else?)
6) I taught myself how to cook over the summer and I've been having fun making authentic Mexican foods
7) I've only ever watched 3 animes, which are Pokemon (the original series), Sailor Moon, and Ouran High School Host Club
8) I've had several websites (most of them when I was in high school) which I coded myself.
9) When it comes to fashion, I am a winter color palette.
10) I have recently become OBSESSED with the TV series Gotham.  I'm still on season 1 though (thank you Netflix), so no spoilers!

For my questions, I want to know... 
1. What is one really good movie that you've seen recently? It doesn't have to be one that came out this year.
The Lego Movie!  I was really behind in watching it but I only heard good things about it, so I finally got a chance to check it out a week or so ago, and the humor was so smart.

2. What is the worst Christmas gift you've ever been given? 
One year I got an electric dryer thing that would help to dry your nail polish.  I thought it was so pointless but now I could probably use it!

3. What is the worst Christmas gift you've ever given to someone else?
When I was 14 I made a bookmark for my dad by taking a piece of cardboard and wrapping it with wrapping paper, then decorating it with stickers.  I thought it was a great idea at the time but now that I look back it is it is kind of a lame gift to give someone when you are that old...

4. Do you have any memorable embarrassing moments?
I edited this because I thought of a better one!  Ok, when I was ten I got invited to a friend's birthday party, and she had a weird aunt who had like this weiner dog puppy.  She offered to let me hold him and since I was ten I just sort of said ok because I didn't know what to say.  Well I was holding the dog and then I got paranoid that he was peeing on me (for no reason), and so I flat out dropped the puppy.  He hit the pavement on his poor back and started yelping and obviously everyone turned to look at me, and I wanted to DIE.  But really, who drops a puppy on the pavement?  That is pretty bad, I deserved to be embarrassed!

5. Have you ever had a really bad/funny/embarrassing picture taken of you? Please describe in great detail. Ahem.  
Apparently I take all my most embarrassing photos myself because I NEVER KNOW WHEN MY REVERSE CAMERA IS ON.  So I get a good shot up my nose (and 2 or 3 chins) on a regular basis when I'm just trying to open my camera.

6. What is a song that you are currently obsessed with?
I can't get the Johnny Cash version of "God's Gonna Cut You Down" out of my head! 

7.  Have you ever had a supernatural experience or something that you just can't find any rational explanation for? 
Nah, I used to believe in that a lot more than I do these days.  There is usually an explanation.  The only weird thing that happens is when I hear my name and no one has said it...it happens to me a lot, but that's just a memory, of course. ;)

8. Who are your top five favorite characters and why?
I wish you had asked me that a few years ago back when I was a lot more picky and a dedicated fan. ;)  Now I don't really have top favorite characters any more, I can find something I like about most characters!  But my newest favorite would probably be...Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon!  Although since I loved her when I was watching it on Toonami in 1998 maybe that is like rediscovering an old favorite instead. :)

9. How do you react when there's an awkward silence in a conversation? 
My mom taught me you don't always have to feel responsible for filling the silence, so I usually just sit there without being bothered by it.  Fortunately most people aren't too comfortable with that though so someone else will generally start a new topic!

10. Do you have any weird things you do when no one is in the house? (Like me) 
Not really, I just like to go about my business without having to talk to anybody!  And sometimes I will watch TV shows that no one else likes in the living room on the big TV instead of having to watch them on the computer!

My questions:
1)  Do you still watch cartoons (and if so what is your favorite)?
2)  What was your first fandom?
3)  What did you do for your tenth birthday?
4)  Are you an animal person?
5)  Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
6)  What is your favorite kind of art?
7)  Have you ever written a fanfiction?
8)  Who is your favorite family member?
9)  Do you like sweet, spicy, or salty food?
10) Have you ever been to Boston in the fall?

I tag:  :iconaidylvice: :icondrzime: :iconcode-e: :iconmisora-roll: :iconmishimishilove:  and anyone else who wants to do it!

Hey guys, I'm still working on the CN Collab background, and I have to complete my entry for the Disney-club Coloring Book Contest, but after that you can expect some more Historically Accurate Disney...and non-Disney!  But I don't know which one to draw next, so I thought I'd let you vote with your comments. :) (Smile) I've put a list of the ones I've done enough research for below.
