Possibly Commissioninging? CLOSED

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 5:23 AM


I really need to raise at least $1000 in order to help out a family member.
It would make me happy to be able to meet that goal for them.
I'm going to try to put more drawings for sale at storenvy but my energy levels are still very low at the moment, so I'm considering taking a small number of commissions too.
If you would like a commission from me (colored works start at $120), and you can pay upfront to paypal (my usual payment method anyway) but genuinely dont mind having to wait a while before the commissions is complete, potentially a long while... (because I still actually have outstanding work to get through first) ...please send me a note : )

As a side note I might be starting a new medication to reduce my fatigue so if it's successful, I might be able to get more done<?>

Thanks~!

My mums looks after me nearly everyday, and stays in touch on the days she can't visit to make sure I'm ok, she's a very caring person but had to stop working with kids because of arm injuries and arthritis, so she decided to create an online shop as something she can do at home! She insisted on selling some things with my art on =-= and will continue to do so... so take a look, your support of any kind would be really awesome at this stage. : )

moving again

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 31, 2014, 9:04 PM


I'm moving house again, I didn't really want to but it wasn't really my choice this time, I move at the end of the week, so I'll be without internet for a while, so I'm going to do my best to get to and respond to all my messages etc, I've just been unbelievably stressed, please bear with me.

Please remind me ...

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 8, 2014, 1:48 AM


I'm really confused and overwhelmed at the moment. I've been going through a lot and there hasn't been much improvement with my health, in fact lately everything sucks. I'm at least partially sedated a lot of the time and I'm getting worse at organizing and remembering things, and have fallen behind on a lot of things.
If I owe you anything, a commission or something to be mailed.. please forgive me for being disorganized and kindly remind my by NOTE what I owe you, and if possible, other helpful details like amount paid, refs, postal address, or whatever is applicable.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 12, 2014, 9:22 PM


This post is to announce that I will no longer be taking commissions, of any kind or at any forseeable time. Taking commissions with poor health and having to make people wait a very long time and being overwhelmed and forgetful has made me feel very guilty and distressed. I will try to continue to sell some drawings on etsy every now and then and maybe try to make some more adoptables. Thank you to those who have shown interest in commissions and to everyone who has been kind, supportive or patient toward me.
I hope the new year is off to a good start for everyone.

Moving house - no internets

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 28, 2013, 4:06 PM


I'm in the middle of moving house, I'll be living on my own again, but somewhere much more affordable and closer to everything. \(=O=; )/
Internet people could take up to ten days to reconnect me, but I'm going to try and find a way to upload the headshots and other commissions by then, probably by putting them on a usb and taking them somewhere with internets. Must buy new usb stick asap, my last one was mysteriously mangled beyond repair shortly after I bought it. Both excited and stressed right now, trying not to get overwhelmed, the good news is I get very excited for the christmas season, so that is my positive focus.
I also want to thank everyone (all the nice people) for your kind comments and support. Please don't be offended if I take a while to respond to something or forget to do it, my brain is like a bunch of different jigsaw puzzles bundled together in a huge pile of pieces, except not as fun to work on. (I really like jigsaw puzzles)

I just want to quickly feature a few people:

This lovely lady made my icon, she makes beautiful pixel icons *3* , lovely chibis also.

I love vivalalixi's work, and have commissioned her in the past for fashion design concept and she's just amazingly stylish and super affordable, and currently taking commissions to help the victims of typhoon Haiyan! It's a great way to support the victims and also get something beautiful in return.

the super talents of :iconjace-wallace: brought excite to an otherwise dark day when they produced this amazing super flattering portrait of me _(T-T)_

Just letting you know I'm taking a break from everything for a few days, so enquiries, replies, commission updates, everything will be on hold. I thank you for your patience and understanding, I'm going through severe depression and since having to increase my medication, I am even more fatigued and unstable than usual and need to rest.
Last call for commissions! these are the last I'll be taking this year and I will close tomorrow, so you if you want any kind of commission, now's the time to ask~! Thanks : )
November Commissions
I didn't get as many headshot commissions as expected so I have room for other kinds of commissions if desired, (to be worked on in November). 
Sketch commissions : monotone pencil drawing scanned, low detail $40
Custom detailed pencil drawings: on quality paper, signed, stamped and mailed to you from $90
Colored digital works: from $100, increasing with detail, background etc.

How to order: 
Please send a note with a brief description of the character you want, include the character's name, along with any useful reference images you have. There wont be any edits so just make sure you include the important stuff.
If I reply "accepted", please make the appropriate amount to Paypal address irishbitter@hotmail.com to lock in your place in the queue. I will send a note to confirm it has been recieved.

Note: I don't do portraits of real people, risque or offensive material etc. The less restrictive and more open to my interpretation the commission is, the better the outcome tends to be. Questions are welcome.
I have no availability right now to take commissions, but I will take orders now for $10 Headshot commissions. These will not be worked on until November, apart from these I probably will not be taking any more commissions until next year.
I will take a certain number and then close. I reserve the right to decline any commissions. I will not do portrait headshots (of a real person).
How to order:
Please send a note with a brief description of the character you want, include the character's name, along with any useful reference images you have. There wont be any edits so just make sure you include the important stuff.
If I reply "accepted", please make the payment of US$10 to Paypal address irishbitter@hotmail.com to lock in your place in the queue. I will send a note to confirm it has been recieved.
The headshots will be monotone and posted in groups to my gallery.
*EDIT*: yes you can ask for more than one.
I've slashed all the prices in the etsy shop and will soon be closing it for a long period of time. Please take a look, thanks!

Hey everyone I want to thank you for all your notes and messages and apologize for how behind I am on everything. Due to my worsened condition I've had to move out of my current residence and am going to live with family, so over the next 2-3 weeks, it will be hard for me to access all my things and use of the internet, but once in the new place, I'll get through all my notes and messages and reply to everyone as soon as possible, and work hard to catch up on everything. Things always turn out to be harder than I expect. Thank you for all your kindness and encouragement. I'll be back in a couple of weeks : )
With the help of a family member, I've started a doll and figure shop, which will grow depending on how things go. Please check it out and if you like it, share it, or buy one of the beautiful dolls. Thanks~!!!

It also has a Facebook page for updates etc: www.facebook.com/BishoujoBouti…
