|You can pay for adopts here! It helps me keep track of things |
Or if you're just donating for the heck of it because you're awesome, that's good too! In which case you have my eternal gratitude
As most of you know I've been all but dead here but I'm finally making my return after a ridiculously strenuous semester at college and a while of recovery afterwards to gather myself together. I'll be doing my best to come back and be active again in the coming weeks before I go back to school again in January, and there's a few things I'd like to address. Fair warning, this will be a REALLY long post XD
First I'd like to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all those who celebrate! I WILL be giving a few gifts to my close friends on here though I apologize, they may be a little late as I've been crazy busy making presents for my room mates and family.
Now I'd like to apologize next, I'm so sorry to everyone for disappearing for such a long time, particularly to those who are waiting on trades and commissions. In addition to the tough semester at college, I recently got out of a very long running abusive relationship that's taken a toll on my mental and physical health. I've been getting help however and my amazing friends have been pulling me through this, and things are starting to look up. I don't want to delve too deep into the matter, as it's a long and weary story so I'll spare you the details. Regarding commissions, I've whittled down my list to only a handful of things and many of these are done, but have yet to be photographed and mailed off. I have literally zero spending cash so it's been difficult, but I'm pawning off a few things and will get all your pieces in the mail asap. Here's a list of things still owed to people and their progress, please LET ME KNOW IF I OWE YOU SOMETHING AND YOU'RE NOT ON THIS LIST! In the confusion of the past few month's I've probably forgotten or lost the note to myself!
~Secret Santa art doll for Belle43 As you know your doll is done but I'm so SO sorry I haven't gotten out to the post office, meaning it unfortunately won't get to you in time for Christmas, but hopefully the extra details I put on it will make up for that a little ;~;
~Thorn plush trade for Chipsticks WOW it's inexcusable how late I've been in getting back to you, believe me I haven't forgotten you though! Your plush has been done for a while but getting it in the mail has been an issue, I'm a little short on cash at the moment but once I get some spare money that's the first thing that'll be going. I'll have to send you some nice pictures of it in the meantime, and I'll be including an extra little present as an apology for the wait!
~Two HC sculptures for a trade with HeavenlyCondemned Both of your sculptures are done, I found the time to paint the newer one a while ago, but again, shipping has been hindering me DX I'll snap some photos for you so you can see how it came out while I try to get them sent off to you asap.
~Switcharound meme between HeavenlyCondemned, Wrennars and I, this is all completed and I have eight of the nine files all arranged nicely in the meme but I've misplaced the lineart that HeavenlyCondemned did of Aki. If you still have that, could you link me please so I can save it somewhere less hard to find in my computer? Once that's in place the meme will be all set for you guys to post.
~Sculpture commission for Ashenee ($50/$80 paid, last thirty due when it's finished before shipping) This is mostly done, I have some details to do before baking and painting it, I'm so sorry this has taken so long! I haven't quite had the time to get some serious work done on it until recently which is my fault for not planning ahead better ;n;
~Shrinky dink/drawing trade with nyanko-dono I don't know if this is still on, but your shrinky dinks are all lined and ready to be colored if you're still up for finishing the trade! If not that's fine, I can just post the lines I did c:
~There were other shrinky dink trades set up, but as far as I know Lahtiirah is the only one who started on their half and so theirs are the only ones remaining that I've worked on. If we agreed to set up a shrinky dink trade but you haven't started yet, I'd prefer to drop the trade or postpone it until a later date so I can get this list cleared out. That said, I WILL BE ACCEPTING NO NEW TRADES OR COMMISSIONS. NONE. NADA. NOT FOR A LONG WHILE. (minus the odd adopt custom here and there)
SPEAKING OF WHICH, this is one of the announcements! I will be ENTIRELY REVAMPING ALL OF MY SPECIES. They're getting detailed reference sheets, some design and anatomy overhauls, backstories, a world that they live in, fleshed out info, all that awesome jazz. This, however, will take a while, but will be worth the wait! I feel I've grown out of using linearts and bases and would like to improve as an adoptable designer so each adopt will be on unique lines. This means I'll be discontinuing the old lines and they will only be used upon request, and I'll be clearing out my gallery of the older adopts of each species and scrapping them as the new refs get released. I'll make another announcement shortly before that though so you can save your designs and such, or buy any ones still available. Additionally, I'm building a group for all the species and their info too so look forward to that announcement as well when I get it up and running!
That's....actually about it! I still have a ton of actual drawings and stuff to post on here and a lot of work I've done so I will do my very best to get that up, no promises I'll actually remember though until I get back into the swing of things. I'm so sorry for your eyes if you read all of that, but I thank you greatly for your interest!!! I really do appreciate all of you, and welcome to the new watchers I've inexplicably been getting during my long, unintended hiatus XD I'm nearing 800 which is a CRAZY milestone that just kind of snuck up on me! If I remember I'll definitely have to do something if and when I near 1000. Alright, time for me to stop rambling. Thanks for reading guys, I love you all, and I'M BAAAAAACK!
