Group Info

The-Great-Art-Trade is a group for people who love to trade art! Here's how it works:
1. Join the group
2. Send the group a note saying you would like to do an art trade and include a link/description of what you want
3. I (or one of my lovely co-founders) will send you a note telling you who your partner is and what they want
4. Submit your part of the trade to our gallery (optional)
5. Notify your trading partner to let them know you finished
6. Repeat steps 2-5 as many times as you like!

It should take anywhere from about 1-10 days, depending on how often I get trade requests. So if it takes a little while, don't worry, I didn't forget you, I'm just waiting for a partner for you :D

This collection does not have any deviations yet!
Heyo, I wish to do an art trade with people, but I have no idea what you want, or what you can give in return.
Since I'm too awkward and shy to ask for a trade, I am going to open art trade in a journal.
I'll provide some examples down below, of the things I'm willing to offer for my half of a trade.

Anime style:
Ana [Request] by Shinihime964 Watashi no Kanashimi by Shinihime964
I don't know how much colour will go in, if I do use colour, since PITT brush pens are EXPENSIVE

Realistic Style:
Alexander Rybak (photo of finished product) by Shinihime964
I'm not going to offer this unless you are my level in this or above, since I want the trade to be fair

We WalkedWe walked.
We walked in silence, we walked for glory.
But what we saw was enough.
Enough glory.
Enough silence.
Enough death for a lifetime.
There it was, the crown of hatred.
Sitting in the dust from which it sprang up.
Eating away at hope, birthing despair.
There was a time when life was beautiful.
It has been forgotten, in the storm of eternal night.
None of us can remember the soft, kind light.
All we can see is the harsh, scolding brightness.
There are no more songs for our ears,
The music has shown itself to be screams.
We thought we were strong,
But our first sight of inhuman acts by human beings broke our wills.
We once were soldiers,
Fighting for our purpose.
We once were mighty,
Feared by the weak.
We now are hiding,
From that part of ourselves,
That cruel shard of humanity,
That would let us do
What it is we see.
What it was we saw once
And cannot ever forget.
What is still burned
Into the darkness of our eyes.
The cruelty,
The inhumanity,
That we have the potential
To becom
Shivering, hiding
Beneath a curtain of despair
Where have I gone?
I used to be important here
But now I'm second
To this new feeling
A new kind
Of desire
I never thought I'd feel
Like this
Much less
For you
But it's like you crept up
In the dark of night
And took me
Where did I go?
The things you inspired in me
Are changing who I am
Am I fine with that?
Am I even the me I used to be?
What have I let happen to me?
I used to be my own person
Not anyone else's
Just a lonely little blurb off the corner
Of humanity
But you've brought someone new out
To play
She's taller,
More confident,
With love
With desire
With you
But that's all she wants
What I want
Where will I find myself
Lost in my thoughts of you
That you will never
I'm drifting, cold
Hoping you would warm me
But I know that
Your touch
Will only ever be
The warmth
Of a
Not the warmth
I want
Not the warmth
I am convinced
That I
I'll just be cold
I haven't changed

give me a topic or an inspiration for the poem, and I will give it to you~~

Just to make things easier, I'll have four slots:
1. [OPEN]
2. [OPEN]
3. [OPEN]
4. [OPEN]

Make your bid for an art trade below.  If I don't reply, then I am not interested, and am trying not to offend you by saying the wrong thing.
