This world doesn't give you any new options or old options, we are stuck in a society where trade is no longer a thing, and money is the only means of anything.

Here on DA you have two options, practice, or spend money to get an artistic concept design of what you are looking for to be made. For people like me, who can practice for months and still barely have a stick figure drawn this system screws with our ability to express our creativity. artists demand anywhere between 5-60 dollars for a 10 minute concept design sketch, which makes it impossible for anyone to get anything from this side.

I'm an artist sure, but I'm a literate artist, I paint with words because Lines on paper never add up right for me. I've been practicing drawing and following art tutorials since I was too little to remember, and the best i have today are in my scraps folder. I am not a natural with a pencil and paper, and At this point in my life i cant spend the time i would like practicing as many can't. which binds my ideas and prevents me from being productive when I have free time. I come up with ideas and concepts I'd like to work with for different things, but Then if I try to draw it myself none of it looks the way I need/want it to which kills my mood and ruins my creative flow. If I try to write it out instead I then have to find an artist willing to draw the concept afterwards, and simply hope that the artist I find won't charge or won't charge 20+ dollars for one sketch.

Wanting to make comics, Cant do it, not an ounce of talent can go into drawing the character. using stick figures makes the outline dull and if no one can follow the story then they wont want to draw it at all. writing full descriptions for each panel ruins the effect and prevents the scene from being realized.

People say practice all the time, over and over again. not everyone gets it. not everyone has the full amount of time for practice like they might want. between work, kids, bills, house chores, more work, it's hard to get free time, and even when we get it we can't use it all the way we want. I've managed maybe 2 tutorials in the past 3 months in my free time, That isn't much practice in my free time. People still say practice, and I question how they can make that conclusion when my ideas are being destroyed the more i have to find time to practice instead of getting concepts made.

Personally I spend $300 of my $400-450 (averaged) paychecks into bills, taxes, and college loans. Then the rest gets saved for groceries and gas money. I'm lucky to get $10 to spend personally every month. I can say other people have similar situations and some have much better situations. but people in similar situations to mine cant get anything out of their creativity, ruining dreams because there aren't any artists willing to work a trial run with people and instead demand commissions everywhere. Granted some artists entire career is their artwork, some people don't get that luxury. everyone expects money to be thrown their direction before they'll lift a finger, but then can later decide after they've been paid that they don't want to do a commission or make a piece of work, and in the end screws over a client or someone aspiring to develop a newer career.

Back in high school I was part of a group called WarCry Studios, a small time RPG game making group. we practiced our game development skills with RPG maker VX, and VX Ace. I want to develop my career as some sort of creative artist, but Literature doesn't fit me too well despite how well I can describe details. I loath writing in fact. I practice drawing all the time and the skill I become good at is writing, which isn't much of a fair trade considering I would rather be able to draw. but instead I'm stuck with vivid imaginations and ideas and I'm unable to draw a single one of them for others to see, Let alone sketch. It isn't really fair that people with ideas and no talent are stuck with poor paying jobs at Walmart, even with education, there isn't a guarantee your degree will get you a better job anywhere without experience.  An idea can only go as far as the resources available to a person, which limits the creativity that is expressed in the world. but no one gets paid for ideas, even if that's the only thing they are good at.

An Idea person like me is worthless without the talent to back it up, and without the the time to practice, or the money to pay for commissions, Just worthless.

Just a rant while I have some free time on my Sunday off work. then back to finishing the bathroom >.< (Total reconstruction of the bathroom.)

So I don't really have any friends her on Deviantart aside from 3 people, and aside from that I dont really get to talk to people much here anyway, I make the occasional comment or idea, sometimes taken to heart. But overall I feel a loss from the Deviantart community, It's almost like everyone just wants porn.
Tenmari:
The tenmari is actually a human tribe from south of the Great lion City. The tribe is in good terms with the Lion anthro kind, though other anthros still see them as their slavers from the north. The tenmari worship the Sun and have a similar Marriage right to the orcs. Only the chief may grant children, and Other men Must challenge the chief to become chief.
The tenmari wear basic loin clothing if anything at all and have darker skin than the humans up north. a few known tenmari tribes are around in the south, but their isn't much confirmation for it.
The Tenmari men will often Use the blood of their hunt to make dyes and paints with some of the desert shrubs and clays. They use these dyes and paints for all sorts of things. Including war paints. Their paint designs usually consist of full shapes with cut in thorn designs. Tenmari men are generally muscular and large, sometimes even more so than the lion anthros.
The tenmari women generally don't wear clothing at all, varying from tribe to tribe. The women of any age is required to give themselves to the chief the moment he says, This has caused cheifs to be killed or overthrown suddenly in the past but generally doesnt happen. The chief is the one who decides when the women are ready to mate, and when the men are ready to hunt.

Jehnli:
The Jehnli are a peaceful tribe of lesser Cat Anthros, They have a tendency to get cuddly and grabby with strangers. Most Of the Jehnli will try to go without clothes due to their thick fur coats making them already Hot. The Jehnli are a very sensual set of tribes who base their culture on instinct.
The Jehnli men are quickly aroused by many things (not just sexual arousal.) and will begin fights, hunts, or personal activities at the slightest of urges.
The jehnli women are unique to the anthro kinds, Jehnli women tend to have 6 small breasts 4 which rest on their rib-cage, then 2 which rest half on the rib-cage or under their rib-cage. there hasn't been a lesser cat anthro so far that this didn't apply to.
the jehnli govern themselves by alpha and Zeta, The alphas will lead the hunt and the zeta's will stay behind and watch home and prepare food.

Corfor:
The corfor is the northern wolf Anthro Culture. they hunt in the icy lands where man doesn't go. The corfor is actually a mix between the Ice bear people and the Wolf people who migrated there long after, but their cultures digressed and merged easily. The bear people have been around since the beginning, but in mans records are only a myth or legend due to the bears tendency to stay close to the ice caps and mystic Ice bridge of legend.
These tribes are a bit more cultured and sensible, they wear more clothing than most of their southern cousins. Usually during the actual winter season, but still have a similar modest culture to their southern cousins.
The men tend to hunt with bows, saving their claws from frost break. The men tend a fair trial, And the women of this culture aren't allowed to petition their marriages.
The women of this Corfor Culture Make clothes, food, houses, and take care of most tasks in the culture. They cant petition their marriages so they must wait for a man to challenge and best her father in combat for a husband. Generally the Wolf-kin and Bear-kin stick with their own kind, but have no quarrels against the one another, Not many Wolf-kin can get a bear woman's hand in marriage for obvious reasons.

Jeda'ck:
The jeda'ck are the wolf-kin of the desert. Their fur is thinner and in shades of brown. most tend to go nude in their tribes, Then wear clothing when they travel or migrate. Only few stay behind during migration to help whatever tribe that comes in settle and find leftover resources.
The women of the Jeda'ck are generous and caring, almost all are motherly, the Jeda'ck are Bi pectoral primarily, but some of the women have been known to have 4 breasts. The jeda'ck do not have quarrels against age or race within the anthro-kinds and their cross-kin cousins.
The men of the Jeda'ck tend to be farmers more than hunters due to the climate. But the Jeda'ck are some of the fiercest kin in the land and most wouldn't cross them.
Jeda'ck men have also been known to join mercenary companies, primarily because most of the mercenaries are hired to save their enslaved kin. The jeda'ck culture says a man may have as many wives as he can feed. Int he desert that usually means one wife, though few have managed 2 or three.
the jeda'ck culture Worships the Twin Goddesses of love, not only are the goddesses sisters in their origin, but wives to one another. The Jeda'ck appreciate Same sex marriage because of their gods.

Bend'ahl:
the bend'ahl is the primary of the anthro cultures, they settled in the Ancient Great ape city and Learned quickly and Turned it into their primary home. The city is now known as the great Lion city and Bids welcome to travelers of many kinds. the Bend'ahl culture is primarily Great cat-kins. (Lions, Tigers, panthers, cheetahs.) The Bend'ahl have strict laws concerning their city and the surounding farmlands, and keep tabs on all the humans that enter, No human has taken a slave from the city in a long time making humans weary of trying when they visit. The Bend'ahl Have many kinds of people, a lot tend to keep covered in light garments, adopting a sense of modesty from the old tomes and books from the Ape culture.
The Bend'ahl Men have numerous job types Above the normal Hunters and farmers. Many aim for apprenticeships in many crafts. The Bend'ahl Have many leather and Cotton trades and workers. The Soldiers of The Bend'ahl get to pick and train selected cubs from young to soldiers themselves. though most are male, there are a few elites who are female.
The women of the culture have varieties of similarities to their lesser cat cousins, many women have multi-pectoral, but some don't making the women very varied. The women have almost as many jobs as the men, and tend to walk around less covered due to the constant amounts of work that goes into making clothes for their tops. many will walk around in light covering or just skirts to keep things simple. Though the younger of the culture, many, will often go without clothes until their cub coats are gone due to the excess heat. the big cat-kins keep their cub coats for 8 years before its gone.

I hate April fools. My parents are celebrating their anniversary and everyone else is off pranking and tricking people. Stupid holiday, lets just skip it from now on. take off April first and add a day to February.
It's not as hard as it seems, maybe >.> ??? <.<

I'm looking for an artist who can sketch a list of specified species in basic forms for male and females of those races.

Some of the races may need a variant depending on the race.

If anyone is interested please feel free to send me a note or reply here.
