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.

Simple drawings can take all from 10 mins to more

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:

I don't know if it's been asked before and maybe I've missed it somewhere in the list but will you ever draw Snuffen again? I've always loved Snuffen's design and loved the pictures of them so I'm just curious. I know you've been busy with the bagbean community now so sorry if it sounds silly to ask
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
ofcourse :D

sinnocturnal Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
idk if this is the wrong place to ask. but i've been a member of the bagbean community for a while now - but i don't really understand how i can be active in the group without owning a bagbean? ;w; 
im sorry if this is a stupid question, im just having a hard time figuring out what i can do, because i wanna be an active member and make friends and the such ^^ '
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2017  Professional Digital Artist
Well in your gallery you have made 1 bagbean drawing. Doing art is the biggest way of being active, we have members who do not have bagbeans yet which has made over 100 drawings of other peoples bagbeans, griffian co creatures or the npcs :3, there are 400 bagbeans so far, but we have 2000 members, so most of them does not have bagbeans. 

Join the events, prompts, dta's,cta's do gifts trades . Join the chat , communicating with the other people in the group in form of chatting or drawing is the best way to get into it. It can take a lot of effort , but sometimes not having the right things doesnt mean you cannot have fun :3
sinnocturnal Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
ahh thank you! that makes a lot of sense uvu 
id love to be an active part of the community so i think ill try doing the things you suggested

and i completetly know what you mean. Having a beagbean is a dream of mine, but until then ill have fun with everyone else and their adorable beans ^v^

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

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
