On July 11th, 3 out of the 8 apartment buildings in my area were either burned or flooded, but luckily, my parents' apartment and the one above us were okay. All eight families, however, were still ordered to temporarily or permanently move out so that these 2 complexes could be torn down and rebuilt due to the water and fire damage.

The place that my family and I are currently living at is almost twice as much as the older place's, so we'll have to cut back on many expenses. I'm still selling my things to help out as much as I can, so please, if anyone is SERIOUSLY INTERESTED, please comment here or buy directly from my storenvy.

No flaky buyers, PLEASE, as I have had to deal with these enough over the past 5 years or so.

I've added some artbooks and one Sakura Miku 2013 nendoroid, so please purchase if you're interested ;u;

Any orders over $20 (shipping excluded) will get a free doodle from me ^^

Visit my store on Storenvy

:bulletred:If I can make at least $100 in sales by the end of April, I'll be raffling off a almost-MINT condition 36-count pack of PRISMACOLOR VERITHIN PENCILS. If it reaches over $100, I'll be raffling off an additional opened but not used 24-count pack of PRISMACOLOR ART STIX.
  • Buyers would get 2 chances for the first purchase, +1 extra chance per additional item 
  • Watchers would get 1 chance, +extra chances if they mention their friends and they actually comment under their original comment ^^
I would be so grateful if anyone could help make this possible ;u;

Hello I happen to come across your journal entry from a group "allartworld". ;D
And I am very interested in your how to draw books.

How to Draw Manga: Enhancing a Character's Sense of Presence
How to Draw Manga: Martial Arts and Combat Sports
How to Draw Manga: Super Basics

I do not mind the prices for some of those books I know are hard to come by nowdays.
I be getting paid sometime after July 4th.

My zipcode is 87402, New Mexico. ;D

Hi, it's been 6 days since you last said that you would get paid...? Could you please let me know if you are no longer interested? I'm getting ready to ship other orders tomorrow.

Late reply. The moment you last comment, I had to leave in the morning that day for a very important medical convention out of town for awhile.

I was meaning to ask what your form of payments are before I left.
That way I can send you a note when I confirm my payment.

And yes I am still interested still but where I left before I had no way to communicate on DA so I was not able to reply or comment when I was gone those days.

I apologize for my late reply, too, as my family and I were displaced by a fire over a week ago and had to find a new place to move to ASAP.

And I see, thank you for your explanation. I hope that you were able to learn many things at that medical convention :)

I usually accept PayPal or square.com payments.

The total for all of them would be $18 + $7 shipping/packaging. Are you still interested? Please let me know and thank you for your time ^^

Hey, oni's promotion got me here. I want to help with your textbooks but I didn't find anything I was particularly interested, I tried to look up commission availability and prices but instead got lot confused :icondizzy-plz:. I was if I could help out that way by commissioning you, if your too busy or not look to take too many commission at once I understand.

kura-ouStudent Digital Artist
Hello, thank you so much for visiting my page ;u;

Oni is very sweet, and I'm very thankful that she made that promo ;////;

Ah, I apologize for that! My commission information is a bit jumbled right now and I'll fix that soon!

My prices range from $5 (headshot sketches) to $120+ (couple CGs with natural scenery). I will also have a short summer sale on soft-CG/painted chibis, rough watercolor painted waist-up CGs and watercolor headshots soon.

What particular type of commission were you interested in?

Thank you so much for your time and please have a pleasant evening!

Something either fullbody or torso, a link to journal with a list of types a commission would help greatly. Then I can compose a note with details and you can tell me price.

I apologize for all the confusion!

I hope that this journal is clear enough. Please let me know if you have any further questions and thank you so much for your time and patience!

Please have a wonderful evening :)

Oooooo those Earth copics are soooo tempting, I just can't spend that much :( Are you selling them individually? I won't be able to get many (even though they are so perfect for what I want to use them for...) but I'd definitely like to help you any way I can! :love:
kura-ou's avatar
kura-ouStudent Digital Artist
Thank you so much for your interest ;A; I apologize for the delay in my reply. And yes, I am selling them individually ;u; Were there any in particular that you really wanted to buy? (Ahhh, and thank you so much for your kind words of support ;~; :hug: )
HylianWolfLink's avatar
HylianWolfLinkHobbyist Digital Artist
Oh no not a problem, hun!
I believe they all were: E000 (the 1st one), E01, E19, E25, E27 and E39 (I hope I got them all ^^; )

And they would be shipped to 60544 if that helps any?

Sorry it's not a lot, but I hope it helps some! :love:
kura-ou's avatar
kura-ouStudent Digital Artist
Again, thank you so much for your interest ;A; but unfortunately, the only ones on my list are E000 and E25. Are you still interested in buying? Please let me know and thank you so much for your time.
HylianWolfLink's avatar
HylianWolfLinkHobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, okay! No problem hun! I'll definitely take those two, and is E57 and E39 still available instead of the others! If not that's okay too? Just figured I'd ask :la:
