Premium Ideas
I'm back after 3 weeks away (from the internet haha), and I'm really excited to see that I'm enabled to sell Premium content! :happybounce:
My initial reaction was "Oh, what's this?', then the more I read about it, the more excited I became! I think this is a really great feature to bring to the site, since I've toyed with the idea of selling digital content before, but was always put-off by finding a convenient and safe way to do so.

This timing is also perfect, as part of the reason I've been away is that I got a job providing private art tutoring.
What does that have to do with Premium DA content?
Well, I went a teensy-bit overboard designing lesson plans, and drawing and writing content to accompany and support the one-on-one lessons.
I wanted to share these resources online, but I was feeling hesitant for the obvious reason that somebody was paying me to produce/provide this work for them, and I couldn't then just turn around and give it to the rest of the world for free.
Now DA provides me a solution!
My plan now is to bundle all my notes, images and lessons into a sort-of ebook (PDF format is most likely). This book will cover the  basics of getting to grips with human anatomy for beginners, and if feedback is positive, I have plans for future lessons and topics to cover. :)

My existing tutorials will of course remain free: Tutorial Gallery :)

Premium Wallpapers
Another idea I have for Premium content is to make High-Resolution Wallpaper packs of my artwork available, so you can enjoy them on your desktop without the watermarks.  
I thought maybe a number of my Legend of Zelda Illustrations in one themed pack would be nice.

Tales of Graces F
On a side note, the Tales of Graces F Limited Edition game has been confirmed for an Australian release! :iconimhappiestplz:
You can pre-order it at your local EB Games, or from their online store.
If you're a Tales of fan, I strongly recommend you pre-order, as this is the only way to get the Limited Edition content. Also, if previous releases of niche market games are anything to go by here in Aus, it's probably the only way you can guarantee you'll actually get a copy at all.
Please support sales by buying legitimate games in your country!
The release date is listed as August 30.

And to all the new Watchers: Thank You! ♥

I'd be interested in seeing your lessons, if you decide to bundle them for sale. Are they for beginner-beginners, or for anyone/skill level who just wants your expertise on human anatomy, art tips, etc.?

Thanks for the good question! :iconiloveyouplz:
It's basically an introduction/beginner's course in the basics of human anatomy, so it's definitely intended to be beginner friendly - however I do go pretty in-depth about some concepts/information so even if someone is not a complete beginner they might get something out of it.

The focus is on providing a solid understanding of the body, and giving strategies for tackling difficult issues (like foreshortening and etc).
And so it does include a lot of my personal art-tips and strategies, yes. ^^ It's not so much on style, but on a good foundation from which a person can develop their own style.

When I do post it, I'll be very clear about what is (and also isn't!) covered/included in it. So people can know beforehand whether it might be helpful to them. :)

Phew, yep, I think that's about it, haha~

Haha, thanks for the clarification! That all makes sense. I look forward to hearing more when/if you decide to post your lessons! :D
