It's the start of summer and you're eager to par-tay, so what holidays can you celebrate in June? Well, there aren't any major holidays but there are plenty of fun celebrations you can observe this month.

World Environment Day

Celebrated every year on June 5th, World Environment Day is a United Nations holiday that celebrates Earth and our environment. 

Donald Duck's Birthday

Donald Fauntleroy Duck's birthday is officially recognized as June 9th. On this day in 1934, he debuted in the Silly Symphony cartoon, The Wise Little Hen. This year Donald will turn 78!

Superman Celebration

Are you a big Superman fan? Then have we got a celebration for you! In 1972, the city of Metropolis, Illinois was declared the Home of Superman by the Illinois legislature. It took seven years to get the party started but in 1979, the very first official Superman Celebration was held and has been an annual event ever since.

Flag Day

Flag Day is said to have first been celebrated way back on June 14th, 1885, when schoolteacher B.J. Cigrand had his class celebrate the flag's birthday. It was officially declared a holiday by President Harry Truman in 1949.

Summer Solstice

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, which means there are over 13 hours of daylight. Summer Solstice falls between June 20 and 23 of every year and has different significance for various religions. The ancient Chinese for example, celebrated the Earth, femininity and yin (the dark, passive element of the yin/yang balance) forces on the summer solstice. This year Summer Solstice is Saturday June 20th, 2016!

Hi! I'm making this so I can get commissions to draw something from someone. I love doing commissions, and I love drawing :3 If you'd like to request something, here's what I'll need to know. Note: I tend to do humans (mostly OCs for people) and fail at inanimate objects/plants/animals, but I can try XD Style: Realistic (Hardest for me) *A selection of a head shape. Like, oblong, square, oval, etc., and if you don't know all them or what they look like, look up some charts of head shapes, and pick your favorite. Or just, whatever your character has XD *A body type. Chubby, skinny, average, toned, etc. *Height, generally. I'm not good at putting a height effect in, but I can try :P *Eye shape. Good to look up a chart for this, too, and choose the one you like. Also say whether or not they're wide-spaced, close-set, or the classic one-eye-apart. Note, though, that Africans/African-Americans tend to have wide-spaced eyes. *Ethnicity. European, African/African-American, Asian, etc... it's good to know, since some ethnicities have different proportions than others. And yeah, Google doesn't think "ethnicities" is a word. I'm not sure either XD *Age. It'll make a difference in heads tall. *Gender. It'll make a difference in features. *Hair color, hair length, and a good description or image example of what it's styled like. *A good description or an image example of what the person wears. *A good description or an image example of what the pose the person is doing is. *If you prefer, it can be done in black-and-white. You don't have to include colors if you want black-and-white. That's all I can think of for that style, so if you think of anything else, please add it in! X3 You can also just use embedded images for all of the areas, if you so wish. If you desire to see my skill level before you request a drawing, I'll be posting an example of each style I do this weekend. Now... for anime/manga. *Essentially the same as realistic, but with the eyes, it's best to provide examples for the shape of the eyes. Anime/manga elements should be included, too :P That's all. If you have some other style I should try, or have some tips on how I can improve, please tell me! ^-^ I already know I need to work on clothing wrinkles for sure, so any help on that is greatly appreciated. (Eventually, over the weekend, I'll make forms for each individual style... And an example of my work in each form.) Oh! Media forms! Here's what I offer, and the time expected... Pencil and paper (Just shading): One day (1-2 commissions), 2-3 days (3-6 commissions), 3-5 days (7-10 commissions), 5+ days (11+ commissions). NOTE: ESTIMATES. Pencil and paper (In color): Same amount of time as the above. Digitally drawn (Longest): Five days (1-2 commissions), it really just depends though. Expect digital ones to take at least a week.
