Hi There! Welcome to my portfolio, I'm Unole! This used to be my art page, but I sort of stopped doing requests, so I thought it wasn't really of much use anymore. Instead, I changed it into a portfolio to show all aspects of my art, not just the drawn kind! Not everything I've done is featured here, just what I like and what I could find, lol.
Please refer to the navigation to the right and below to search through my portfolio, and thanks for visiting!
About the Artist
If you're here, you probably know me as Unole, but in real life, I'm only known as Erin! If you're wondering, Unole is pronounced ooh-no-lay, not you-know-l. Unole is also the Cherokee word for "wind" which was given to me by my hubby who is Cherokee, and his "native name" is Wohali, which means "eagle". So you can say I'm the wind beneath his wings lol /cheesy. I have gone by many names over the years such as Dark, Kitty and Eris.
Off site, I am a mother of one, a son named Kaiden. I am a stay at home mom currently, and what a wonderful job that is! When I'm not on neo, I can be found drawing, writing, sculpting, spending time with my family and playing video games! (Yes, I am 22 and I still LOVE pokemon lol)
I have been on neo on and off for roughly 8 years now. My first account was dark_undertaker_999 (had nothing to do with the wrestler). I created that account when I was around 12 or 13. Back then neo was completely different than it is now, and I even miss the crazy glow fonts lol. After a couple of years, I decided I was "too old" to play neo and self-iced my account with a darigan shoyru and a mutant kougra on it :( Some years later, I started to miss neo and came back under the username lt_bonnie (now a side of mine). My time on neo didn't last long as around that time, I was never home, so never near a computer. Over the next few years, I tried getting back into neo and failed miserably lol, but 2 years ago, as I was expecting my son, I had nothing to do while home all day, so decided to finally join the neo world once again! That was when unolespirit was created! I have been here ever since! Now I can be found around the NC chat, sometimes in the PC, drawing, making graphics, draik and teacup adoptables, and of course hanging out in my wonderful guild, Aozora!
Have a question not here? Feel free to send
What programs do you use?
For almost any graphic related content, I use GIMP 2.0, and any art/drawn content is done 100% in Paint Tool Sai.
How long do you spend on one piece?
It differs from item to item. My buttons I can spend anywhere from 10mins to an hour on to get it to look right, same with my fonts. Layouts generally take longer and range from around 1hr to all day depending on what I'm doing. As for art, sketches are about 30mins, and any other full color images are at least 3hrs+.
Time goes into these things which is why art theft anywhere on this site is strongly dealt with.
When did you start drawing/designing graphics?
I've always been drawing, ever since I can remember. It runs in my family, and it's what I grew up loving! I started getting into digital art around 5yrs ago, and now I hardly ever draw traditionally. Graphics on the other hand; I started messing with graphics when I first started neopets about 8yrs ago when I was around 12 or 13. During my hiatus, I didn't really dabble too much with it, but when I joined neo again 2yrs ago, I got back into it!
Do you take requests?
Currently, no, I do not. I used to have a layout request site as well as an art request site, but have since closed both. Now I only make layouts, art, etc for friends, guild mates and myself.
If you are interested in adoptables I do run a Draik adoptable site as well as a Teacup adoptable site, both with requests which are usually OPEN. If you are interested in either, please refer to the "sitely" section for links!
