I don't know if this has been asked before but, I'm kinda curious as to how Sushi Dogs ended up being nicknamed Soosh/Sooshe's. I find it adorable but I was so confused at first when I saw people calling them that so I'm just kinda curious! ;;v;;

Great question haha c’: In the Sushi Dog admin skype group chat, my friend ColdIko called them Sooshi Dogs just to be cute and then we jokingly started called them “Sooshes”…..and it somehow spread online and now everyone says it ;u; <3

Hello Witchpaws! I just wanted to say your sushi dogs and what your doing with the species is great! I love the idea and have a feeling a lot of great things will come from it. I watch you on dA and always get excited to look at a bunch of new sooshies X3

Thanks so much, lovely!

Hello! First off, congrats on the possibility of a copyrighted species! As a fellow artist, that's a really cool development to see. If you don't mind me asking--if you don't find it offensive of me to do, at least, could you explain why exactly you're taking this route? uvu It mostly just intrigues me. I don't know much about copyright, but what are benefits of having one on a species? Thank you so much, and again- congratulations !!

Thank you for the support! :’)
I’m taking this route because I want to develop Sushi Dogs into an actual line of products, and I would want legal protection over the brand name. This way, if anyone else tries to sell Sushi Dogs adopts/merch/etc, I could protect myself and my brand by pursuing legal action against them. Please note that I am not “copyrighting food dogs” as many people seem to think I am. That is legally impossible.

If you trademark sushi dogs, will sushi cats be trademarked too, or you'll need to do the process twice? Or do they count like a sub-species of the trend?

It would be a sub-species; a subproduct sold under the original trademark. (Similar to “Webkinz” and “Lil Kinz” — except Sushi Dogs and Sushi Cats)

Two Random Questions C: 1. I know you use Paint Tool Sai, or at least I think you do. What brush do you use for outlining? (If you don't want to tell me that's fine.) 2. Where did you get/code your theme? It's beautiful!

I use the marker tool on basic setting for outlines uvu

If you click the small pink square in the bottom right of my blog, the theme will come up.

okay what i've tried completely reinventing my art style, merging elements of other artists styles together, getting inspiration from nature and using the textures in my art, slightly altering my current but NOTHING WORKS AND I AM JUST gOING TO PULL MY HAIR OUT. my art style rn is just so bland and it's nothing special and i wanna change it but nOTHING WORKS do you have any tips thank y ou

"Style" is putting your own artistic twist on reality. In order to have a distinct style, you need to have a grasp on what’s real first. Practice what is in front of you before you become too concerned with making it "your own". Study from the masters such as Rembrandt and Da Vinci to hone your drawing/anatomical skills. When you understand the basics, it is much easier to twist them into your own liking/a style. And honestly, even so, you’re probably going to feel this way all your life. Most artists are NEVER happy with their work or style — even though other people might see it differently. It is what drives us to become even better. I wish you luck!
