So I've recently run into some funtime MONEYSUCKING. First off, there's the fact that a "friend" of mine, if you can call her that at this point, decided to tell me that she was going to buy a plane ticket for my bestu to come visit for a convention. No. Say she bought it, actually. And then proceed to avoid us entirely while constantly insisting more than once that she did have it. And now we don't have the ticket. Kay can't come visit.
And the hotel I spent money on to stay at with my friends, when I live 30 minutes from the con, is going 90% to waste.
My car also decided to break, costing me around $700 USD to fix. And I'm buying an alignment for it this week. $70 more. And I just paid my bills PLUS electricity for the month. $300.
Is it just me or have I spent almost $1100 in shit in just a month?
This leaves me with a con in 3 weeks or so, a floundering pair of bank accounts, and no means to make more than 180-190 a week at my job for the moment, because labor costs are quite possibly going to cost my boss her job if she doesn't distribute hours accordingly.
I've come up with an elegant solution which might not work, but I'll give it a shot. (:
Photoshop doodle: $3 || Sample -> One
Traditional Pencil sketch: $5 || Sample -> One (LQ, will be better)
and whatever recent samples are in my gallery.
Traditonal Lineart: $10 || Samples located in my gallery. The black and whites, of course.
Traditonal Colored: Contact with details. Samples located in my gallery.
ALL PICTURES WILL BE SCANNED AND DELIVERED DIGITALLY. IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR ART MAILED TO YOU, WE MAY DISCUSS SHIPPING PRICES VIA NOTE. No worries. I won't charge much, it's just art. :3
Couples are half-added price, groups are half-added price up to 4. Prices may be subject to change depending on contact. When ordering, you must note me on here, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "COMMISSION." From there, we can discuss what you want, whether I will be able to provide it, and any price variations that will result from complication, number of subjects in the picture, or what have you. Payment must be through Paypal.
I will accept in lieu of payment, the purchase of a volume of Samurai Deeper Kyo (barring volumes I already own) that may be direct-mailed to me. I will provide a mailing address if you plan to buy it off the internet, or if you plan to send it. Depending on the cost of the manga, you may take your pick of a photoshop doodle or a traditional pencil sketch. Whichever ONE you prefer. If your volume is well over 10 dollars, I will consider a lineart acceptable. I don't mind secondhand. My only wishes are that the product be in English (Tokyopop publication), and in decent reading condition. Otherwise, pay fifty cents if you like. xD
Currently owned volumes: Vol. 23.
If you help me with money, I would be EXTREMELY thankful. And don't worry about commissioning more than once. Art is fun. ^__^ I would really appreciate your help, seriously. And I will keep track of what I need to regain in small parts. This time, I'm going to take track of my alignment, and if I reach my goal, I will start working up parts costs for my car!
Alignment: $0/$70 re-earned
