I’m going to put a hold on For Bell (animal crossing) commissions for a while. I’m sorta busy but I’m also in a sort-of financial crisis. I had to lend money to someone who can’t pay back anytime soon, and I was unaware of that when I lent the money.

So I am willing to do short story commissions like I’ve been doing, but for real money. Anything helps right now. I have no idea when that money I’m owed will be payed back and, regardless, I was counting on it.

$15 per 1500 words. I can do roughly that much in an hour, after all, and that is less than $.01 per word. I will do one revision, but I require as much detail as possible in the original order. For extra revisions after the first there is a flat fee of $5 per revision, regardless of word count after. So a story that comes to 1500 words would be $15. If the first revision bring it up to 2000 words, you still pay $15. If it brings it down to 1300, you still pay $15. If you ask for a 2nd revision the story now costs $20, and so on.

I feel really, really weird asking for commissions like this, since I’ve only done them for Animal Crossing bells so far, but I’ve been told that my writing is something people would be willing to pay for. No subject is taboo, but if you want a fanfic and I’m not familiar with the subject matter you will need to provide a lot of details to help me. I’m comfortable writing erotica of any kind.

Anyway, I could just really use the money right now. Payment would be via paypal and/or amazon giftcards. In the future, if this picks up, I might even do stories for wishlist items. We’ll see.

I’ll post an example when I get a chance, as I’m rather busy tomorrow, but I have a quick example I posted to my ACNL page a while back that I will link to. I can’t share the work I’ve done for others.

I intend to take my time and make a better sample, or edit something I’ve written before to work as one, but this will do for now.

My husband’s taking story commissions! We’re tight on money and he’s skilled at what he does so if you want a story he’s your guy!

Hi everyone! i want to start making necklace but i don’t really know how to start. for all that make necklaces with your polymer clay and shrink plastic art, where do you purchase your supplies? and what are the supplies that are needed?

Now, I don’t personally make any jewelery (at least, not anymore. What I did make was mostly metal work in high school, rings and such, so not really relevant) but I know that at least most of the basic supplies can be found at most craft and or fabric stores. You can also buy cheap online, Amazon has most things and stores like Micheal’s and Jo-Anne’s also have online stores.

You’ll definitely want clasps if you don’t plan to use pre-made chains. Lobster claw and spring ring clasps are the two staples. They’re both easy to find.

You’ll want a ton of various sized jump rings so your charms hang nicely. Or, if you go with sculpted charms you could consider some jewelery bails that can be built right into the clay. That way you don’t have to worry too much about undue stress on the clay. Since some styles of these can be glued on they can also work with any shrink plastic charms as long as you use a powerful adhesive! There are many styles though so pick what works best! You wouldn’t need a fancy bail if you’re going to hide it in clay but a decorative one might be a nice for shrink charms.

Any jewelery makers out there have some info about this they could share?

I’m thinking of making some sort of digital zine to sell on gumroad. I’ve had an account there for a while but it’s only been to keep track of my purchases so I’d like to take better advantage of it.

I don’t have a theme yet, I’m still tossing the idea around, but I was curious what my followers thought about it?

Yesterday was 24 hour comics day but I did an hourly comic instead (at first because I forgot the two events were separate and then because I thought an hourly would be easier with guests coming over)

This was very tiring to do, at least in part because of those sleeping hours I had to catch up on. The whole time our friends were here they played Smash Bros. It was rather amusing, to be honest.

This is gonna count as my fourth inktober piece.

My first three little inktober doodles. It’s been a while since I did much traditional inking so I had to get back into it. I’m pretty pleased with Dandy especially.

A few people have asked, but Inktober is a month-long yearly event occurring in October where artists make one drawing every day using ink (brushes, pens, etc.) and post it with the tag #inktober on sites like tumblr, instagram, twitter, pinterest… anywhere!  The goal is just to push artists to draw daily (and try out a new/seldom used medium).  You can read more about it on the founder’s site!

I’m going to try and do this! We’ll see how it fits in with my workload^^

My illustration for the Ghost Town Zine! I decided to go with the chickcharney as my cryptid of choice.
Chickcharney hail from Andros in the Bahamas. They are said to be 3ft tall forest dwellers resembling owls that are feathered and furred. They suspend themselves from trees with their three fingers, three toes, and tail. They have red eyes and are considered rather ugly.
Common legend claims that a traveler who meets a chickcharney and treats it well will be rewarded with life long good fortune. Treating it poorly will end with the traveler’s head being turned backward!

My wife made me a coffee mug as an anniversary present! Designed off my ACNL 3DS XL!

I really should have linked to her blog when I posted this.

http://freckleonmypalm.tumblr.com/

I made this mug for my husband! It was a two-year anniversary gift. I got the mug at a thrift store and used enamel paint to create the design. It’s patterned after the Animal Crossing 3DS XL and I did my best to replicate the font they use!

I’m willing to take custom mug commissions if anyone is interested! I don’t have the details worked out but please feel free to drop me a message if you’re interested!

Here are other examples of my previous mug work:
