Auction #2: SOLD by Ahkward Auction #2: SOLD by Ahkward
This is the second sketchbook I am auctioning! I only have two of these available so if you want it, so for it. Bidding ends at 11:59PM tonight Eastern US time. That's about 15 hours from now. 




I've been wanting to try this for a while. I'm auctioning an EMPTY sketchbook so that the winner will decide what goes in it. It can be:

Fanart, your OCs, friends' OCs, or studies I do (if you want me to), or ANYTHING (I'm even willing to do NSFW if you wish me to). Or if you want, you can let me keep it as a personal book, then send it to you when it's full. I usually do 3-4 pages a day in my books, so it'll take about 2 months to fill up. 

Also, artwork inside will be sometimes sketchy and some will be more finished and some will be completely full color finished work. I use inks, pencil, colored pencil, markers, acrylics, gold, etc in my books. They are really full mixed media projects. 

Once the book has an owner, I will make a special folder in my gallery for this book and post deviations of all the pages to it for the owner to see. Also, if the owner has new ideas while I'm still completing the book they will have a place to go comment so that I can keep track of what I'm putting in the book. Of course the owner could note me or comment on my profile, whatever works easiest for them. 

Book stats: 5.5 x 3.5 inches - 200 pages (all will be used) - 45# paper (this is the same book I use personally, just smaller)

I have already finished my personal book for the semester, so this will be the only book I draw in over the summer. If you can't buy it yourself, consider spreading word about it?

I REALLY wish I had the money for this. XD

Unfortunately can't afford right now, but it is very tempting.

I've been sitting here over the past two days debating about which I need more: food, gas and bills paid or this. I hate being an adult, life is hard. I want this so badly, but I have to be responsible and don't get paid until Friday :C

I don't need money immediately. I don't mind waiting a few days for payment. As long as it isn't like a few weeks.

Money's tight right now so I can't afford to blow too much over $120 or so and someone else has already bid so close to that, so I'd feel like an ass taking it away from them. I would LOVE to commission you for a few pieces, or I'll have to just save up and try to buy your next sketchbook auction.

You know, I'm just going to have to buy one. You are such a bad influence! But I was talking to sailor-spatula earlier and basically tried rationalizing against it, but failed miserably. I went around in my head a bunch of times and realized that I'd rather have a sketchbook from you vs one from other, "bigger" artists (like GoldenWolf, etc.) that I also love. I dunno, I just like you and your stuff better and feel more connected with someone I actually talk to, haha! If no one has bid up the price too high by tomorrow, I'll have to throw in my bid.

$300 is such an amazing price...I would sincerely consider autobuying it myself if I had the disposable income.  I want to bid, but at the same time I would feel like I am ripping you off by offering anything lower than $300

I made it only 300$ since wasn't sure it'd even get any bids. Lol the next will be more, but I have to honor the price I set when i posted it. So if you want it, I'd appreciate a bid. Lol. With graduation on Thursday and needing rent money and bills etc, I'm willing to lowball a little.

Thanks for your interest.

If you're going to be filling up each page with personalized art, I almost feel like the highest bid should be a bit more than $300. You're art is super good, and no one is going to pay you any more than you allow ;-;

I agree, but since it is the first time I auction this type of commission, and I am a bit desperate I kept it lower. Ideally I'd get 500$ if I got what I really wanted. Right now the biggest bid is only 100$, so idk if people would be able to offer that much. Plus not all drawings in the book will be finished. Lol some will be looser than others. But yeah, I totally agree with you.
