Deviousness Award
An energetic artist who brings a spark of life to all of his creations, Eric Proctor (known by the community as TsaoShin) has spawned some of the most memorable works of art on DeviantART. His Grumpy Cat Disney mashups have been seen and shared far and wide across the internet, and his creative spirit and technical ability are matched only by his good-hearted nature. To many community members, Eric is one of the most friendly individuals to interact with. All of his Journals come with good cheer, gratitude, and positivity, and he takes time to interact and spread good cheer and knowledge into the community.

Commissions (Soon!)

I'm getting a lot of requests to open up my commissions.  First, I'd like to apologize for keeping them closed for so long.  I've had an incredibly backed up year with industry commissions but I'm happy to report that I've nearly completed them all!

Second, when I do open commissions I may keep them open at all times.  I will basically keep a running queue of commissions that you can join at any time and it will be first come first serve.  Keep in mind, depending on when you sign up it might take a long time for me to get to you! 

Why am I doing this?  I really hate turning people away when I'm closed and I also feel bad that when I DO open commissions they fill up within 20 minutes.  With a running queue, anyone can join at any time, there's no mystery on when I'll be able to do commissions, and there's no longer a situation where commission availability comes and goes within the length of a lunch period.

Keep an eye out for more information!  I'm working hard to get this up and available as soon as possible.  Thanks for your patience!
