READ this journal for examples of art made with the diffrent programs
What program did you use to draw this?Ok so since I get this question on nearly every drawing I upload and I am to lazy to copypaste/rewrite what program I always draw something in and I have examples in my faq's, I will make a bigger list here with examples.
My style of art sometimes changes depending on my programs and I will post some obvious art drawn in each of the programs I use.
And here are the brushes I use just to throw that in here aswell

:star::star::star:Adobe Flash Cs3:star::star::star:
MOST of my cartoony art, with lineart and gradient art are made in flash. ANIMATIONS are also usually made in flash.

How long have you been drawing?
All my life.
I started my digital art journey in 2005

What inspires you to draw/keep drawing?
Everything inspires me! I cant even remember why I kept drawing as a kid, I am sure it was because my mom spent a lot of time with me when I drew. So that feeling of closeness and parent love, made me enjoy the whole part of doing art. I also loved to get my ideas down on paper.

How long do you usually use on art?
It depends on what i make and how i make it.
Simple drawings can take all from 10 mins to more
and detailed art can take from 1 hour and more

Im a very impatient person, so i want to finish art as fast as possible xD

What school did you attend?
Høgskolen I Hedmark, Campus Hamar.

Most important thing you need to know about me is that im not a pushover, im a stubborn sarcastic fish and I do not support the pussification of our society! : D Oh and i also love bugs, rocks and birds.

Why the name griffsnuff?
the name griffsnuff were made in a period i said snuff alot, or sniffing snuffing snaffus etc.. And i also loved griffs ( or gryphons) so the two names emerged naturally.
Snuffen is a nickname made from griffsnuff by SinCommonStitches long ago, and ive kept it ever since.

Being blocked by me is a meme :D

Using HTML on deviantART

Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking. :)
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place? :dummy:
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

What kind of process is there to get a bagbean character "approved?" And what does it mean that it's a "closed species?"
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
You can only buy get a design from me. There is no myo's.  :3 to get them you can either order one when I open customs, buy adopts being uploaded or just be active in the group Bagbeans 
PlasmaDragonite Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So, what happens when people create bagbean characters out of thin air?
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
They are not allowed to do that, and if you do not take those down you will be banned from joining the community.

do pardon if I am remembering wrong, but had you worked for a game company at one point?? o: 
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
yes :3 quit when we finished it
monochromera Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016
not your kinda thing I take it, or you just had a specific project you wanted to contribute to? owo
ah, also, mind if I asked you a few questions related to fan content in regards to game companies? I don't know many artists that work or have worked for video game companies and you were the first that popped into mind, assuming I'd remembered right ;w;  ey- totally fine if not though, I'd hate to be troublesome if you haven't the time or desire to answer!
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
yeah Game indusrty is not for me, doing it once was enough ^^ I had personal reason to leave however that wasnt about the actual game. But  I just realised I liked working with my own things way more :3

and sure ask away :D
monochromera Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016
it's not for everyone, but neither is solo work; you've certainly got patience to deal with freelance art ;o;  I'm glad that you're happier with what you're doing now though from the look of things c:

I appreciate it omg
:bulletblue: so, when people try to pitch an idea to a game company, who would likely be the one to answer them or deal with them? A receptionist-type person, a worker in the company, a higher-up? I'd imagine there is someone in charge of checking emails and things
:bulletblue: what is the likelihood of most companies accepting external ideas or fan-made content as their own? Like a card or tabletop spinoff of a game? Do most companies ignore emails or letters like that, or ignore them, or do they consider them?
:bulletblue: how professional should a person write/behave/etc when dealing with a game company especially in regards to pitching an idea? 
:bulletblue: how much should a person show of the project they have devised? Say a person's concerns lie between showing too much and having the idea stolen by the company and no credit being given, or showing too little and not giving adequate information for the company to get an idea of the content- where should they lean? Is it better to show off specific stats and mechanics or cards and illustrations or to give a general idea of how it works without too many specifics?
:bulletblue: do people pitch fan ideas to the company often?

I'd imagine if the first isn't something easy or possible to answer, the rest likely isn't either; I'm very unaccustomed to how these things work, but any/all info would be awesome >w<  thank you so very much for your time 
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
hehe true :D and people wont know unless they try it out! 

Since the game company I worked with was freshly made out of the school I went to and with the people who went in my class, some of the things is something I cant really answer ^^; I knew one of the people who started it and they kind of pitched me to the group since they needed another 2D artists and I guess I passed from them alreadyseeing my work. So I cant really say what would be the best way to pitch ideas and such, but this video is super helpfull. He talks about what is good to know and such and what to learn more about if you want to get into conceptart atleast.… he also has a lot of other helpfull vids. He might also know what to do and were to go with a portfolio. I think he might have some videos on just porfolios aswell

I do however think you should not be adding fanart, only add your original artworks if you are going to show companies. They are more interested to see what you are able to do out of your own mind and not by copying others designs etc. You can however include your own ideas of already existing ideas as longas you make it your own I think :3 

I think it will depend on where you are trying to get hired. Some companies might be more laid back, while others might be super strict, it comes down to doing your research about the companies or something.

If your not a conceptartist and more of a game developer there is a rule on how long your pitch is supposta be I think. But since I am just a conceptartist I dont really go around that realm ^^; It was neither my job when i was part of the team either.
monochromera Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2016
very true c:

ahhh okay! I will definitely check out the channel then, a ton of these videos look like they will be extra helpful for game design and art in general <3 thank you for showing it to me~
the part on doing own's own work is a good point, that makes sense o:  
I will definitely have to look into companies attitudes too, it never even occurred to me to do so- now that I think of it, it seems obvious they would all be different owo/
and I had not known about any pitch length, THAT is something important to look into as well!! 

all of this is still very helpful, and I really appreciate it c: there's a lot I had not considered that could affect a lot of those questions
thank you so much omg
can I just
poop some icons out for you as a thanks because I'm bad with words ahhhh

Say griff, i have a question about Paypal.
like, sending money and all that stuff.

example: like, I wanna buy a custom common bagbean 70 dollar
if i'm correct in this..

so, if i send you 70 euro's (i know this is not right, just making it easy)
does is automatically change to 70 dollar or do you get my 70 euro's?
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
that would give me 70 euro and not usd. You can choose what currency to send with when you send money :3

This may be an awkward question or too personal or something, BUT I HAVE TO ASK--- hnnng.

How did you and Sin become friends? c:
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Long story short.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2005 I drew her tons of fanart because i thought her characters were really cool and fun to draw. One day she drew one of my character back because she was bored. I asked her for her msn, and then we started chatting just a little. It wasnt anything to special until she said she roleplayed and had her own world she roleplayed in with the characters i loved xD so I asked her to join, and she let me. Thats how we became best friends forever. Now 10+ years later we still roleplay, and im unable to roleplay with anyone else because its way to perfect. Ive also traveled across the seas to be with her and shes been in norway twice now! so we also hang in real life once we can haha :3
Shrapnarl Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2016
hell yeah, she has cool characters

But that's a pretty sweet story- thanks for sharing! *v*

When creating a character how do you usually decide on a colour palate? Is there a particular palate you fall back on. I notice lots of blues and oranges.
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Sometimes I have an idea in mind, if i dont I just splash on a random color and go from there xD

I do love using browns and whites. So its very common I atleast have one of those in the designs I do xD

I have a question about your colored lineart! I noticed while watching your streams, it looks like you make a new layer over the lineart, lower the opacity and color. Is there a specific opacity you set it to, or just whatever looks nicest?
