Want to Use my Artwork?

The safest thing to do if you want to use my artwork is to contact me. You can either message me here, or email me at

Most of my artwork may be reposted as long as you link back to my account as the artist (check the specific deviantion page for more information). Do not attempt to take credit for a piece I've done. Some of my deviantions may be altered and distributed for non-commercial purposes as long as credit is given to me.

If you would like to use something I made commercially, you MUST contact me for explicit permission. If you use something commercially without contacting me first, it is copyright infringement. Likewise, if you want to use something without crediting me in the new form (such as a tattoo) you also MUST contact me first.

Commissioned pieces may NOT be used in any way, shape, or form without the explicit permission of the Artist (me) and the Patron (whoever commissioned the piece). PLEASE, if you are unclear on what this means, contact me before using any pieces.

Again, if you have questions, feel free to ask. It's better to be safe than sorry. If you aren't sure if what you want to do with some of my artwork is allowed, just ask. I'm friendly, I promise, I just don't want to have my artwork stollen.

Thank you,

:heart: :heart: Ferret Tattoo by TaraPrince :heart: :heart:

Hello to my lovely watchers and anyone else who is interested!

I have decided to open commissions again!  I work primarily in digital formant, therefore, any artwork will be emailed in the full resolution (approximately 300 pixels/inch) to the commissioner or, at the commissioners request, uploaded to deviantART.  I have a busy schedule, so I ask that you allow up to 2 months for any piece, but I will try to have them to you within a week or two of receiving your instructions and payment.  If you're working with a time constraint, contact me and I'll see what I can do to make sure you get what you need when you need it!

Thanks for your interest,

Tara Prince

:bulletyellow::bulletyellow:Please Read Before Messaging Me:bulletyellow::bulletyellow:

(If you have comments, questions, or concerns, feel free to comment or note me)

Terms of Service:

:bulletyellow: I reserve the right to refuse any commission for any reason.

:bulletyellow: I reserve the right to post your commission on my online portfolio, if you have issues with this, note me privately and we will discuss it. (This goes for all discussion of rights regarding the artwork.)

:bulletyellow: I will draw pretty much anything, though I reserve the right to refuse any commission for any reason. I also reserve the right to cancel any commission at any time for any reason, resulting in a full refund to the Patron.

:bulletyellow: I primarily draw people with simple or no backgrounds.  You can look through my deviantART gallery if you want to see what I have previously drawn.

:bulletyellow: Depending on my schedule and other factors I may add or subtract slots.

:bulletyellow: I will keep updating the percent progress next to your icon on the journal page, but feel free to contact me if you want more detailed progress reports.

:bulletyellow: If you want something sexually explicit you MUST BE OVER 18.

:bulletyellow: Pricing of artwork is by style rather than portrait, waist-up, or full body, so you may ask for whatever you wish.

:bulletyellow: I will send you a picture of the initial sketch or pose, and if you would like occasional updates after that, let me know. I will post on deviantART (privately) the "final" piece for your approval before I send you the full resolution piece.

:bulletyellow: I will make large alterations to a detailed piece ONLY during the sketch stage.  Small adjustments can be made later, but nothing that involves huge changes.

:bulletyellow: Payments will be in two chunks. The Patron (you) will pay 50% after approval of the initial sketch and 50% before the final high resolution piece is emailed to you (but after you've approved it online).

:bulletyellow: I will send you an invoice when payment is expected. You may cancel your order at any time but there is a cancellation fee of 20% of the full price after the sketch phase and 40% after the final image has been completed.

:bulletyellow: If you don't see what you are looking for, feel free to send me a note and we can discuss custom projects and prices including, but not limited to illustration, audio work, and pieces to be purchased on my Society6 Store. Inquire, also, for anything involving commercial use of my work.

That is because my tablet isn't working! At first it was just being difficult with my laptop and I wasn't really sure if it was just not working with my new computer (which has a different OS) or if it was the tablet itself.

I'm pretty sure that it is now both. My suspicion is that it is not compatible with my new computer, first off. I was using it with my old computer (despite the fact that it's a pain in the ass because it's super slow now and I need an external hard drive so I can clear it off) but then it stopped working on that too. I sort of think that that is not the tablet itself but rather the pen, but I'm not sure.

Because of this, I don't think I'll be doing ANY digital art for some time.  I don't want to waste $25 to get a new pen in case it's the whole thing that is broken, so I'm just going to start saving up for an upgraded tablet. I'll try to get my old Intuos 3 hooked up to my new computer and I'll see if that works at all, though the drawing surface is scratched to hell and I don't really like using it.

Until then, though, I'm going to try to do some more traditional sketching. If you have requests, you can message me with them and I'll see what intrigues me. Remember, though, a request is not a commission. Just because you request it doesn't mean I'll draw it, and if I do decide to draw it, it might not be exactly what you requested.

Hopefully I'll talk to you soon,

Tata (me) by Kinsara!

I'm an author, student, and entrepreneur. Writing is my favorite thing in the world but I also dabble in art on occasion, primarily for the purpose of drawing my characters and worlds. As an author, my primary genre is LGBTQ+ Speculative Fiction (fantasy, sci-fi, etc.), though I occasionally dabble in contemporary romance and other genres when stories hit me.

I don't take art requests but if you want to commission me you can visit my journal.

Current Residence: Utah
Favourite genre of music: I like a bit of everything. My taste is more dependent on the song than the style.
Favourite style of art: Realistic or artistically styalized
Operating System: Mac
MP3 player of choice: iPhone/iPad (I haven't charged my ipad in about a year)
Personal Quote: Writer is more a personality trait than an occupation.

Me elsewhere:
Archive of Our Own

Trying to get back into the habit of drawing. What would you like me to draw more of?
