Get To Know Blue!
Hi! I'm BlueEyesNeko! You may call me Blue, BEN, Neko, or anything else you desire. My real name is Haley. I'm also known on other sites as BlueDragon2196. I've been drawing since I was two years old and I've never stopped loving art! I plan to major in some kind of art, hoping I'll be able to get into video game design, when the time comes for me to go to college, and I'm a senior in high school this year. I also play bass guitar. One side of my family is artistic, and the other side is musical, so I'm pretty balanced. Below you can see all of the stuff I like, so feel free to note me or comment on my profile if you'd like to chat about something :D
What program(s) fo you use?
I only use Paint Tool SAI for my digital artwork. For my traditional work, I commonly use a drafting pencil, Copic Markers, Prismacolor Pencils, Acrylic paints, and Sculpey (:
What kind of Tablet do you use?
I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet. I've had it for 3ish years now, but I may be buying a new one sometime in the semi-near future.
What got you into art?
I've always been drawing. I drew my first stick cow when I was only 2 years old, and have been drawing ever since. I only got into digital art my freshman year of high school (I'm now a senior, aww yeahhh lol) and in the past 3 years I feel I've learned so much from drawing digitally, and I hope to improve everyday! Also, Disney helped me get into art, as well. Gotta love those movies! :D
What's your favorite thing to draw?
Depends on if I'm drawing digital or traditional artwork. I prefer digital artwork now, but if I'm going to be doing a landscape I'll do it traditionally all the way! I love doing landscape pictures traditionally, but I don't mind doing backgrounds digitally either. I'll try drawing anything else digitally, unless I HAVE to do it traditionally. I enjoy drawing My Little Ponies, Pokemon, Chibis, and recently felines.
Will you ever do a kiriban?
Probably not. I've tried a few other times and no one ever joined in.
Do you take commissions?
I do! I take commissions through the Commission Widget system here on deviantART. My prices are higher because dA takes 20 points from every 100 points I charge. So instead of 80 points equaling $1, 100 points equal $1. Below, you can see what I'm saving for from my adorable piggy bank, Chubs. Every commission is very much appreciated!
Do you accept requests?
I open them up every once in a blue moon. But now that I'm in my senior year, I'm definitely going to be worrying about my school work more. So unless I KNOW I have time to take requests, then I'll open them. It's very rare though, so please do not ask for requests.
How can you spend so long on one picture?
I find it more relaxing to draw if I take my time. Whenever I rush a picture, it doesn't turn out how I want. Sometimes I work so hard on a picture for such a long time, that I burn myself out. But I'd rather have that than a not-so-great picture because I rushed it. I try to listen to relaxing music or ASMR whenever I work on a big picture to make sure I relax and take my time with it,
Can we do an art trade?
Sorry, but no. I only do art trades with my closer friends or if I'm intrigued by an artist's characters and they're requesting an art trade. I see it as a challenge to try and draw a different kind of character for once.

My Commission Policy
Commission Policy!I'll usually have an objective to save up for whenever I open up commission spaces, you'll see the objective from Chubs!!
Please keep in mind that I have started my last year of high school, so commissions may be a little delayed and that family and friends are top priority.
I very much appreciate every commission that comes my way. I can't find a job around my area so this will be the only income I'll have for a while. You can see above what I'm saving for, so if you'd like to help out, please note me before commissioning me (: Thanks! ~Blue
