vantid asked: Have you tried Eskidile? Or, what about Nymphstream.

You caught me, I haven’t tried those options.  I’m am bad artist.  :c

vexstacy replied to your post “If I may ask. What makes you use/pay to use tigerdile when there are free options?”

I’m also wondering if you’ve tried picarto. Doesn’t sound like it

Yes, I have tried Picarto.  I didn’t specify in my answer which other streaming services I had or had not tried.  ;)

Picarto has been suggested to me over and over again, and while I think it’s great that others enjoy the service, I ended up choosing Tigerdile.  Maybe someday I will switch to Picarto, who knows! But I’m pretty happy with Tigerdile right now, and plan on staying there for the foreseeable future.

adonmara asked: If I may ask. What makes you use/pay to use tigerdile when there are free options?

I used livestream for years, and it suited my needs well enough for a long time.  However, when the service became so spotty I could no longer host a stream without serious interruptions, I went looking for an alternative!  I found Tigerdile, and I tried out their 30 day free stream deal, and I enjoyed it greatly.  It has MANY of the features livestream had that I liked, plus tons of features I wish is had! For instance, I don’t have to worry about censoring my nude references, because the site allows adult content.  Each person’s channel is customizable, allowing a banner, a description with links, and even a paypal donation button if you’re drawing for tips.  Users can subscribe to your channel, and get alerts at your discretion when you stream.  The chat has flexible ban/kick options, and you can assign moderators to help.  You can also set up password protected streams, and give that password out only to a client, your friends, your sub list, or whoever, so you’re not forced into a public stream every time.

PLUS.

The site owner is prompt with any issues you may have, and takes any concerns the users have very seriously.  He takes no shit when it comes to protecting users from harassment, and for me that’s a huge plus considering some of the people/issues I’ve encountered on livestream. He is always professional and diligent, and a pleasure to speak to. The site is constantly being worked on and improved, and it’s a labor of love for those who created it. 

I would also like to add that $15/month is really well worth it for the kind of service I get.  Especially for someone like me, who integrates streaming into their business on a daily basis.  I NEED streaming to get live feedback from clients and to validate my work hours.  I also just plain enjoy it, and the benefits of live critique from fellow artists and art appreciators makes me a better artist all the time.  It’s a very small business expense for what I’m getting, and worth the very small monthly investment for me!

Don’t let that cute arctic face fool you, she is not a fox to be messed with!  Commission for Bering of his wonderful Irish police vixen, Alex.  I didn’t use the newer fur technique on this one, but I used what I learned to make the fur here better I think.  It was so satsfying to paint the fluffy white tail!8.5 hours in Photoshop CS6 with an Intuos 3 tabletTexture by Hibbary - http://hibbary.deviantart.com/

Full body commission for SaWolf, of Samael the maned wolf in full bad-ass mode, walking away from what must have been a harrowing fight!  I tried a new technique on this one that I’m still getting the hang of for the fur, more on this if it continues to be successful.  I like the result here, but I think it needs some tweaking and practice.9 hours in Photoshop CS6 with an Intuos 3 tablet

Commission Time This Friday

This Friday I will be open for new weekly commissions beginning at 11:00am Mountain Time! As usual, these will be completed the following week live via my Tigerdile channel.  I will only have enough hours available for a full body piece, a couple speed paints or portraits, or a bunch of icons.  This week I took on a lot, and I want to cut it down so I have more time to work on the big queue next week.

Anyway, I’ll be posting a visual submission instead of a journal, so it’s more visible!  You’ll need to email me when the announcement is posted to reserve a slot, it’s first come first serve.  Commenting will not reserve a slot for you, so get your info together and ready to email to wolfnymph at gmail dot com (as soon as you see that visual submission alert).

Here’s a list of my prices, terms of service, and how to order - http://shadow-wolf.deviantart.com/journal/Digital-Commissions-357872935

Memorial pet portrait for two of my good friends, who lost their dog some months back to illness.  Molly was pure love wrapped in dog form, it was a blessing to have known her, even for a short time.  She was awkward, leggy, sat like a funny human with her pink belly hanging out, and had the BEST little slight underbite and cute smile.  Rest in peace Molly.  <34 hours in Photoshop CS6 with an Intuos 3 tablet

Finished reference sheet for SaWolf, of his maned wolf character Samael 9 years older than in his original reference sheet by WhiteMantis, which is here - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4388241/  Samael has been through quite a lot since then, and his disposition and appearance has changed a lot as a result.  This was a pretty tough reference sheet to make because drawing firearms is a weakness of mine.  But if I have a direct reference like I did for these, then I do ok.  This piece was also a special case compared to my usual commissions, in which I transferred the copyright of the resulting image to SaWolf.  Thus the different watermark at the bottom there.  It&#8217;s fun to see all his items and accoutrements together after taking so long to draw them all too, like little collected game items!  ^^This Friday I will be open for new commissions beginning at 3:30pm Mountain Time!  They will be completed the following week live via my Tigerdile channel.  Prices and policies can be found here - http://shadow-wolf.deviantart.com/journal/Digital-Commissions-35787293517.5 hours in Photoshop CS6 with an Intuos 3 tablet
