Hi all, I know I haven't been active on here but that's due to my life being chaos.

I haven't had much time for art but... I want to make my life even more crazy by getting back into art.
I'm looking for advice when it comes to selling my work.

I want to sell things that I make / print myself. Package myself. Basically do everything myself. I want complete control. SO. Should I look into Storenvy or Etsy? Which of the two comes out on top? Which do you prefer?? Would you buy straight from my own website rather than a shop on Storenvy or Etsy??

Any and all input is greatly appreciated as I try to come back into the art world!
- UPDATE -
After four months of no tumblr I've started one up again.
I'm taking it slow and we will see how it goes!
danoddityblogs.tumblr.com/
I need people to follow so I'm checking out everybody's blogs!
- end -

...

I'm slowly starting to go through all my shit on here.
I won't be very active just yet but I'm going to find some sort of happy-medium!
Thank you to everyone who's still sticking around.

I no longer have a tumblr and am currently working out the kinks with my art blog, which I may delete too.
If you want to keep up with me or stay in contact, check out my two instagrams!

I have a lot to go through but I'm working on it!
I'll be around.
Eventually.

Happy Holidays everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic break / time off.
I let go of a lot of stress I was carrying by sleeping the whole weekend. Which was what I really needed.
I've been dealing with a lot of shit in my life, which I hate bringing over onto dA, and is why I disappeared from here.

Eventually I will find the time to start being active on here again, though now is not that time.
BUT I've been much more active on a few other accounts!
So I'd love to hear from you over there :)

Check me out on instagram or snapchat>>DanOddity
And I'm slowly getting more active on my tumblr  again.
Of course my facebook page is still around but like dA, it's kinda on hiatus.

I look forward to hearing from you again! And hope you all have a VERY HAPPY NEW YEARS. <3
Now that I'm getting more comfortable in my new schedule due to my new job...
I'm going to start streaming more often.

SO COME CHILL OUT WITH ME.

I'M WORKIN' ON IT

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 12, 2015, 10:53 PM


Quick hello!
Terribly sorry for not being very active on here...


Little note to everyone that has commissioned me:
I am planning to get caught up this weekend, as I made sure I'm free to work on stuff without interruption!! 
Yikes- I'm sorry, still trying to juggle life and find a way to fit art in.
I want art to be my life but it doesn't pay the bills.. at least not yet. 
щ(ಠ益ಠщ)

If you miss my art, be sure to check out my artblog, as I post things there more often than here
Same goes with my facebook, which I plan to have daily updates started again this week!

Thanks a bunch for sticking around

TSUKINO-CON 2015

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 15, 2015, 10:23 PM


Ahhh, Tsukino-Con was great this year, really!
First off, I didn't get my Valentines pic- done in time, so it'll have to be a LATE Valentines picture.

NOW FOR TSUKINO-CON

SecretAttire and I cosplayed our WIP versions of Reese and Cyrus from ACNL
I was amazed at how much support / love / photos / HUGS we got
Everyone complimented us and like - wow. Really felt the love this Valentines day.
We even won most adorable cosplay?!?!?!?
(づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ
Also I was called a cosplay inspiration...LIKEWHAT

I have a longer post on my personal tumblr.
grandmasterofoddities.tumblr.c…

Photo's are starting to pop up of our outfits, I'll probably be reblogging / posting some.
BUT THEY ARE STILL WIPS- GEEZ
We literally had nothing planned, SO MY POSES ARE ALL AWKWARD AND UGHHH. Oh well.


Anyway, Tsukino-Con was fantastic this year. Hopefully next year I can get my Artist Table up and running.
IN THE MEAN TIME
I'll be thanking my new watchers soon and going through my deviations.
500+ pictures to FAVOURITE AND COMMENT ON AND LOVE.

Thank you everyone at Tsukino-con, you were all super amazing n shit. Love seeing you all every year. <3

SUNDAY SHARES / SHOUT OUTS

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 18, 2015, 2:50 PM


So every Sunday I'm doing a new thing I like to call Sunday Share.
I have many wonderful supporters and I feel like I don't give enough thanks.
This is one small way I figured I could give thanks to my real supporters.
Every Sunday I choose one of my watchers and share their art / promote them.

You can find my Sunday Shares on my Facebook page
www.facebook.com/danoddity

This is the second Sunday and it feels good!
Giving thanks to those who really deserve it.
I hope you all give them some love too!!

First part: Posted from my Stringsonabunny facebook page.

IMPORTANT. PLEASE READ.
After a long, stressful process, I have decided that it would be my best intention to keep deviantART out of my professional line of work. 
I will be moving to a new facebook page. [linked below]
Reason being, my professional image deserves a page more than my personal image. [That's what my personal facebook is for in the first place]

As an artist, it is important to get my name out there, so of course I am now pushing Daniel Lyle Duncan out in the open, while using the artist handle; DanOddity. It's short, simple and better brands what my professional art is actually all about.

New Page link: www.facebook.com/danoddity

Please go support me there, as soon this page will no longer exist!

Second Part;

It's really difficult parting with Stringsonabunny, but professionally it would bring on a lot of confusion and questions.
It's really annoying to explain to the industry what it means. //ugh

My commission work, is all under Stringsonabunny. This work is a special EXCLUSIVE offer to deviantART only as drawing your characters, my characters and all in between, is what I love to do as a hobby.

No, you all don't have to stop calling me Stringsonabunny. I am simply just updating you guys that Stringsonabunny is for personal work. Silly, NSFW things that I like to do. Reduced commission prices for your character art.

Stringsonabunny means a lot to me, as it is in honor of my brother... so it will never die. It is just difficult to re brand yourself / work. I need to push in a new direction if I want to get known for my work. My business life won't come into here, but you are all welcome to come into my professional life!

As long as you bring love and support of course. Professional love. 

Thank you all for reading! 
Hello everyone!! How are you all doing?? 
I'm working on being more active with my other media's... so I'm just here to update you on two links!

My previous blog made for my comic process is also now my ART BLOG. If you're interested in seeing work I don't post here, please go follow this page: intuneric-circ-official.tumblr…

Also for those of you who are subscribed to my old youtube channel, I plan to be posting my new videos on another channel. Please subscribe to this new channel if you're interested in my videos! www.youtube.com/user/danielart… 
A lot of people get annoyed when Artists ask for emergency commission money.
Sometimes it's because the emergency isn't real and people get scammed.
But for us who really do rely on you guys to help us out, that isn't fair.

Either way, I'm doing the cliche thing and reminding you guys that my commissions are open.
I don't want to go crazy and say I need emergency money.. I just need work to do. I WANT to work for you guys.

Long story short, I lack funds. Greatly. It would be amazing if I could work up some sort of safety zone / money cushion. 
I currently don't even have internet until HOPEFULLY Saturday. For time time being my landlord is letting us use some of his. //ugh

My commissions have a deal where if you spend $40 on a single order, you'll get a chibi worth $20 for free!
Commission Prices, NEW SPECIAL by StringsOnABunny

Reminder, if you don't want to buy a commission but you are willing to help spread my link around, that would be fantastic.
Thank you all for being amazing watchers!!

Also if you have any spare points you don't need, I have a donation set up on my page so I can get another month of premium!


ALSO, a good friend of mine is in the same situation as me. If you want to commission someone who has amazing cheap sales, please check out Styl-Fly

BEGINING MY WEB COMIC.

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 23, 2014, 1:20 AM


I AM...
...
..
But really.
Slow down.
I'm not drawing it yet.
//I'M SORRY.
Previously in the past I mentioned I would begin to draw it once I finished college.
Now being done college, many things have changed.
The story its self has been rewritten MANY times, and last year I decided to completely rewrite it again.
This never actually happened, I only wrote down ideas.
Now that I am greatly inspired, DONE college, and determied... I am STARTING THE PROCESS.

Yes, this will obviously take me a super long time... but I will be making updates and taking questions / input on it! 
If you want to see anything I post about the webcomic's process, you can follow its tumblr here: intuneric-circ-official.tumblr…

I will not be spamming this website with my webcomic thangs.
Please just bare with the plain boring tumblr page until I can go in and actually make it all nice and purdy.

Sorry for my absence!

Journal Entry: Thu May 29, 2014, 9:18 PM


I am sorry, please forgive my lack of activeness on the site / drawing in general.
I'm getting adjusted to work and we're currently on crunch time since the movie is due to come out in a month.
So basically I'll be having long days / nights at work.
We don't use internet, so I can't check messages till I get home.
Which means I haven't really had the energy to art. ;-;
Staring at a computer screen for 8+ hours a day doesn't exactly make you want to stare at one for even more work now does it. x'D
Hopefully I'll figure out a good time that works for me to get art done! 
I have a lot still to do.
;-;
Sorry again. 
I AM NOT IGNORING ANYONE.

COMMISSIONS + ANIMAL CROSSING = FUCK SKEWL

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 18, 2014, 8:25 PM


Oh hai.
It's y'know, been a LONG ASS MOTHER FUCKIN TIME.

How are you all?
I'm so sorry i've been absent. 
School is really crazy right now, I have about a week and a half left, and I still don't think I'm going to make it in time for our art show.
I've been at the school every single day, EVERY SINGLE DAY. 
It's really scary, but that's what needs to be done. ;-;

Around the start of next month, I plan to start up commissions, with slightly higher prices.
NOT BY MUCH THOUGH, I PROMISE.
I just need, legit money, but compared to the actual industry, I'm still cheap as hell. 

So if you want art from me, save some money or points up! I'll be opening again soon. :))


Also, I caved and finally got a 3DS with animal crossing new leaf.
I'm addicted.
Like wow. 
Fucking friends got me into it.
For years I said no.
But here I am.
Shut up.


Also- I'm not ignoring anyone.
I haven't had time to check on dA or Youtube, or anything.
Just tumblr every now and then.
I'm working on it. ;-;

Happy Holidays! I have New Years updates.

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 28, 2013, 1:55 PM


Hello everyone! I am sorry for the lack of holiday cheer.
I am at my parents which has slow internet and no cellphone service.
(Out in the country)

I hope you all had a happy holiday! I wish you all an amazing 2014.
What was your favourite thing that happened??

Mine would be the fact that my girlfriend came to enjoy my holiday with me!


Now, stay tuned for 2014!
I am revamping my commissions, and I will be working hard on some prints.
I will have an art table at Tsukino-kon 2014, in February.
So I have a lot of work to do.

I also have three more months until graduation, so please be patient, especially people whom I owe art too.
I need to get my prints done first so I can make some money before I work on the rest.
I will be sure to finish everything before I start up my commissions!
But everything may be on hold until after I graduate, boo.

Either way, it wish you all the best. I send my love and good wishes!
