About



faster-by-choice




Greetings! I am an African American beginning artist who loves cartoons and video games. I'm a furry, I love cute and kawaii things, and my dream is to become a fursuiter, a Lolita and an animator. :lol:

November, the character pictured above, is my "avatar" and my fursona, a cross between a lion and a vulture. She represents my love of fun, optimism and wonder. She is very important to me, and is my tie to the furry fandom, which I wish to become active in.

These are a few of my favorite things:
STAMP-Sonic 015 by NoNamepje Pokemon - 001 by Stamps4Journals Super Mario stamp by angelasamshi splatoon stamp #1 [splatfest] by the-runaway-josh Spore Stamp by parallellogic Skyrim Stamp by SuperFlash1980

I also love plushies, cats, birds and sweet treats. I can be easily bribed with cookies and donuts x)

Feel free to talk to me, I'm very friendly and I like to talk with a lot of EXCITEMENT and ENTHUSIASM all the time. I don't bite! However, even though I may not respond to every comment I receive, I do read them all.

COMMISSIONS OPEN. INFORMATION AND WAITLIST FOUND HERE.

Business inquiries can be directed towards me via note here on deviantART or FurAffinity, or my email address at galaxy_paw@yahoo.com, which will receive a response within 24 hours.

November <333

"Hey, the name's Cephalon! Next to me is my star, my bright light, my wonderful Krystal.

Let's see... how to describe Krystal... well she's a sweet and adorable firefly squid who literally lights up my world. And for a cool guy like me who can't sit still and gets in over his head sometimes, she's super patient with me and really helps set me straight. And gosh, is she ever beautiful... I'm really lucky to have her. Krystal thinks I can be a a dork and a worry wart sometimes, but it's okay. I know she loves me, heh.

We've been a thing for about 3 months now. Never knew life could be so bright with my Krystal before... No way am I ever giving this up anytime soon."

Kry, I'm really glad you're my friend... I don't think I'm very good at making friends and keeping them, but I'm glad I met you and that you've been with me for these past 6 months. I appreciate that we have so much in common, that we get along so well and that we can brighten each other's days so easily. It's funny because I think about how you find friends when and where you least expect it, but I'm thankful that you're in my life and for all the time we spend together. I'm always gonna be here for you when no matter what and I'm thankful that you're there for me even when I'm at my worst. Goodness knows I need it.

You're like a sister to me and I'd do anything in the world for you. I really treasure our friendship and I enjoy your company and presence; I really don't know where I'd be without someone like you to stick by me all this time. I love you and I want to love you for as long as I can, just like Krystal and Cephalon will for each other.

F.A.Q.



What do I call you?

I have gone through many many aliases while "living" here on dA for the past 7 years, so I won't list ALL of these... But feel free to call me Keturah (my actual name, pronounced "kuh-TURR-uh" or "kuh-TOOR-uh") or November (my fursona name). My close friends usually have their own nicknames for me, haha.

You're a furry? What does that mean?

It means I'm a huge fan of anthropomorphic animal characters--ones that have human traits such as the ability to talk, walk upright like humans and the like (Bugs Bunny, the Lion King, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc.)! As a result I'm drawn to things that features these types of characters, like Sonic as I mentioned above, Pokemon, Splatoon and some other things.

It does not mean I have sex with animals or wear my (soon to be) fursuit only for sex. Please do not let the deviants of our fandom sour your impression of furries. We are a friendly, creative and accepting group of people. :)

What drawing programmes do you use?

Manga Studio 5 and Photoshop CS6

Do you take requests?

99.9% of the time, the answer to this question is no. I reserve those for friends. Occasionally I may do requests via stream or some random thing, but usually you will just have to commission me.

Your commission prices are too high! You should lower them!

No. I know my art is good quality even though it is not the best. I spend many hours working on my art and I don't believe in selling artwork for less than it's worth. That's a piece of me you are asking for. Not some generic picture you find in a store.

Do you accept points for commissions?

Hell no. Points are worthless as far as currency goes. This also goes hand-in-hand with that thing I mentioned above about undervaluing art. I'm not charging 20 points (or should I say 20 cents) for an art piece. Besides, if I charged points for my artwork, you'd need several thousand anyway.

Can I use your art for...?

NO. Unless you have commissioned a piece of artwork from me, you are not allowed to use my artwork for ANYTHING without my say-so.

I saw your artwork on (insert website here). Should I ask them to take it down?

Only ask them to do this if they are using it in some way without my permission (i.e. tracing it, calling it theirs, removing my watermark, using it in their own artwork). If it's a site that I'm on like deviantART, Tumblr or FurAffinity, I'll look into it myself, but as long as they credit me or don't remove my watermark I don't really mind. Just ask me if you aren't sure.

You said something rude to me! You're so mean!

I like to believe I'm a nice and friendly person, but creepy, rude, or willfully ignorant comments will usually get a snarky response back. Also sarcasm tends to occasionally fly over my head and I may interpret that as rude. Basically, just don't be a prick and we'll get along okay :)

Can we be friends?

Not by asking, we can't. I prefer to make my friends naturally.

Will you draw more of (insert thing here)?

Only if I'm in the mood. Please don't hound me about this because that will only make me less likely to draw the thing you're asking about.

Anything else we need to know about you?

Uh... I'm very short, I speak a little Spanish, and I swear a lot?

No, really, just ask! Seriously, I don't bite, lmao.
