Hey everyone! As you may have seen in my previous status updates (or on twitter) we had a LOT of snow where I live about two weeks ago, I ended up missing a lot of work due to that plus having been in the hospital the week before that due to my seizures. My rents due now and my pay is not what it should have been so I'm in a bit of a pickle

As much as I'd love to open up commissions completely I can't do that just yet, I have previous obligations that require more attention and it wouldn't be fair to people waiting on that for me to put a stop to everything to work on other full illustrations

So I'll just be taking detailed sketch commissions for $25 dollars since I can do those in a more timely fashion

Here are some examples of what you can expect from a full body sketch from me, price my vary slightly depending on the amount of detail!

Galloping Centuar Sketch by Moonlight-pendent13Mischievous Smile Sketch by Moonlight-pendent13Windy peak Sketch by Moonlight-pendent13

If you're interested please shoot me a note and we can discuss it there!

If by chance you want to help out, but either don't feel like getting a commission, or you don't wanna increase my workload I'll add my paypal donation link to the bottom of the page! I appreciate any and all help given!



So apparently the donation link isn't working for some people, if that's the case you're also welcome to donate directly to my paypal email Moonlight-pendent@hotmail.com

I've seen quite a few people I know doing these features and I've been finding so many cool works I want to share I thought I'd start up a weekly feature thing too!
Every Friday I'll be featuring works that have caught my eye that week! I will try to feature lesser known art and artists to get them seen and appreciated by more people!

Here are some amazing pieces of art I've found on dA this last week!

Calling Darkness

Calling Darkness by Moonlight-pendent13

Are you a horror fan? do you love listening to podcasts? Well then do I have a recommendation for you! I was honored with the chance of doing some promotional art work for the new horror podcast Calling Darkness! If this seems like the kind of thing that interests you I recommend checking it out, the first episode just came out!





Well, looks like I'm coming back

Sun Jan 20, 2019, 3:06 PM
So after talking with a few friends, and some encouragement I decided to give dA another shot, not gonna sit here and promise to be super active, but I will be posting on at least a weekly basis, tho it may be daily for awhile as I have a lot of art I've done that hasn't been posted

Also big thanks to :iconazurejass: for gifting me a membership so my page doesn't look awful and bland!


Hey anyone coming here, I don't really use dA much anymore at all! Maybe I'll come back some time in the future but for now it just isn't for me.

If you want to continue to follow me and my art best place to do that is my twitter

Or shoot me an email at Moonlight-pendent13  @ hotmail . com if you have some sorta inquiry on something! (remove spaces)

I might come back sometime in the future but for now I'm off doing other stuff elsewhere! hope to see you all on those other sites!


Edit: I'm also on Instagram! but I'm still figuring that website out lol so posting will be slow

I suppose I can link my Tumblr but lets all be honest, it's going downhill atm so I'm mostly there to reblog silly jokes and stuff

Oh I also have a Pillowfort incase anyone is on there!


UPDATE: So Deviantart is thinking of rolling out something called "Deviantart Eclipse" Depending on how that goes I may come back for that, we'll see tho if you want to wait for me feel free to keep me on your watch list but if not and you still wanna follow my work twitters the best place to find me!

Discount Commissions Open

Sat Mar 10, 2018, 2:26 PM
Hello everyone! For the entire month of march I'm offering lower priced commissions! come april I'm putting up my new pricing so this'll be the last chance to get stuff at these prices! I'm doing these discount commissions as my birthday is coming up soon on the 23rd and I wanna be able to have a nice relaxing bday without worrying bout financial woes!

Also, if anyone wants to be extra amazing, I do have a amazon birthday wishlist. Anyone who gets me ANYTHING will get a complimentary sketch if you want one, and my undying love and thanks of course! (Also I will be taking pictures of myself hugging any gifts I get on my twitter so there's that too!)
--> Wishlist Link <--

If you're wanting to order a commission shoot me a note, or an email at Moonlight-pendent13@hotmail.com telling what you want (make sure to have a good detailed description or references ready!), once we confirm what it is I'm drawing for you and how much it'll cost, I'll do the initial rough sketch, show it to you then once you give the go ahead I'll invoice you the cost via paypal. once you pay the invoice I'll finalize the picture!

For icon/pixel commissions I will show the rough start for that as well before invoicing the cost and finalizing the piece similar to above

 Now without further ado here are some of the things I'm offering and how much they'll be!


Pixel icons!
I Love making pixels, here are some examples of ones I've done and the average cost of them will be $10-25 dollars!

Speedy Sketches. These are very fast very rough sketches they're not gonna be perfect but I try to give them a good amount of personality! $10-20 dollars!

Too cool for school by Moonlight-pendent13When in doubt by Moonlight-pendent13


Sketches.  these sketches are ones I take my time more so on them, and get them looking as good as a sketch can look! $20-25 dollars!


Windy peak Sketch by Moonlight-pendent13  (C) Westah sketch by Moonlight-pendent13 (C) Good mornin Sketch by Moonlight-pendent13


Colored Sketches. Says what it is right on the tin, I do a sketch, and then color it in! no pesky wait time on super finalizing the lineart, just a sketch and then color! $40-55 dollars

Conversational Arachnid by Moonlight-pendent13(C) Good Morning by Moonlight-pendent13   More examples to come shortly*


I'm back!

Wed Mar 7, 2018, 2:47 PM
For good this time I think, lots of stuff has happened lately, mostly good! One not so good thing is that, I was laid off from my job. But when one door closes more open, so I'm taking this as an opportunity to refocus on my art, and also enrolling on college, working out if I can get decent financial aid first before I jump the gun on anything but I'm hopeful that it'll be a good experience even if I'm just getting a bachelors degree.

I hope you've all been doing well! I've missed everyone! I've still been fairly active on Twitter so always feel free to check on my stuff there if I go quiet on here again, I don't think I will tho I'm ready to come back and buckle down with posting stuff regularly and being more active

Update: July 19

Hey everyone, a lot has happened in the last month. First off I'll start with the very tragic news. about 2-3 weeks ago one of my uncles caretakers, Mel committed suicide. It hit everyone very hard. On top of that, the budget for my uncles care is not consistent enough to have him be able to stay at home it's looking like. There is only enough money to have his one Caretaker stay for 3 hours a day. Which is bad because if my uncle has to use the bathroom, it just happens he is not in control of those muscles. Not being able to be cleaned up right away can cause bedsores and all other sorts of horribleness

So it's looking like he will have to go into a home. The only places his insurance covers are not so great ones I'm afraid. But that is looking like what's going to happen Monthly care for him to have a 24 hour or even 12 hour a day care, paying the caretakers 17.5 an hour is 5880$ a month at least and we just don't have that kinda money.

Thank you to everyone who pitched into help, it was so kind of you to do so, and it gave us hope for awhile and it helped get him care.

I'll keep his youcaring up, as he still needs money for Medications, he takes a lot and they are not cheap so any help is appreciated

Also, I want to add the Youcaring for Mel, his caretaker's Family  www.youcaring.com/lulafamilysn…


Update: June 26

Thank you so much everyone for the help so far! we are at 430 Dollars! But Daily care for my uncle is at LEAST 210 dollars ((12 hours, paying the caretakers 17.5 an hour)) So Please if you can, keep sharing or donating even just a spare dollar or two it makes a world of difference!



Update: June 22nd 2017

Thank you again everyone for sharing, adding this to journals. We are at 311 dollars so far. 
His nurses get paid 17.5 an hour so for 12 hour care that's about 210 Dollars. Please help us continue spreading this to try to get more assistance! My Aunt is already getting exhausted and very stressed from doing everything on top of working to provide for my Uncle and her kids.

Update: June 20th 2017

We are already more than 10% of the way there! Thank you so much everyone who has been sharing this on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Deviantart and whereever else! 



Hey Everyone! This journal is all about my Uncle Michael. He's in a really tough spot right now. He has MS, he is fully paralyzed and bedridden, except for some use of his left hand. Due to, a lot of bad circumstances my family can no longer afford his care, and without it he could die. We are all doing our best but the amount of care he needs is expensive, and my Aunt is already doing her best to be his 24 hour nurse while working and taking care of her kids. I made a Youcaring fundraiser to try to help the costs and it also goes into more detail about my Uncle's Condition and other details. If anyone can Donate, Share, Spread the word My family and I will be Immensely grateful.

I highly recommend you check out Chugs Root Beer store! twitter.com/ChugsRootbeer I'm making a journal shoutout as well just cause, I want peeps to be able to more easily see it. My boss is super rad, and has a real passion for the store and root beer. They have the largest selection of root beer ANYWHERE and a huge selection of soda's as well.

Not dead

Mon May 29, 2017, 7:58 PM
I am horrible with keeping up with things goodness

Also, Journal and page will be a Little bit ... Bland for abit, my Membership expired and I'm a bit pressed to afford to renew it.
THANKYOU NEFE YOU"RE THE BEST

I just wanna let you all know, I'm not ignoring anyone, or abandoning the website, it's been hard to be as active here because I haven't had anything to really contribute yet. I got a job, a regular 9-5 type one. it's hard on my body and doesn't pay a ton, but I've had to pick it up.

My boyfriend got let go from his last job I posted about, he did find a new one not long after thank goodness, but things have just been very tight and stressful moneywise/living situation wise. That along with my computer being, Really messed up. Making art when you're in a really deep funk and dealing with piles of rl stuff is tricky, mad respect to artists who can ignore that and just do it, I'm not one of them

To the Three peeps I owe commissions, Haven't forgotten you, I see your notes, and I'm happy to mention they are just about finished. I'll even ((if I can)) try to throw in a extra quick sketch as thanks for being patient with me.

Thanks for sticking with me through thick and thin guys, here's hoping I'll be able to start posting stuff regularly again soon

ALSO if anyone needs to reach me and wants me to see it asap PLEASE email me at Moonlight-pendent@hotmail.com

Oh Goodness Gracious

Mon Apr 3, 2017, 10:32 AM
Thank you for all the belated Bday wishes!!!! I'll start out by saying I'm sorry, I got hit with that LOVELY dA IP lockout thing. ((where the more you try to log in... the longer it locks you out)) and then follow that with computer problems, health problems and just, PLENTY of other stuff

March was NOT my month

I have about... 40 notes to go through right now and 5000 messages so I guess that's what I'm doing this week.... ;;


I humbly ask your forgiveness for my disappearance and I'll be getting back to everyone asap D: for commissions I was working on, I haven't forgotten. My tablet has also been having issues ((when it rains it pours argh)) or it might be my computers usb I'm Not entirely sure. But either way I'm working towards getting it fixed

and in really good news my Partner recently got the job at a local grocery store!!!! ;; which means hopefully we'll be less tight on money in the future, huzzah!

Cheap Sketch Commissions Closed

Thu Feb 2, 2017, 8:10 PM

Computer on the fritz (Update)

Mon Jan 16, 2017, 5:18 PM
Edit 1/21/17 I'm still only at 50/150 so it's looking like I won't be getting it fixed this month most likely, so all art is on hold till least the 3rd or 5th of Feb would be the soonest I can foresee getting it working ;;

Edit 1/19/17 I've raised 50/150 for the computer repairs so far! Any help is most appreciated, it's not life threatening exactly so there's no super rush but it will allow me to get back to work sooner the sooner I get it fixed. I'm trying to do some work on it but I can only work in 15 to 30 minute intervals to prevent overheating and it shutting off xX

I'm quickly typing this before my CPU fries or desk catches fire! Right now as some of you may know my computer has been making a HORRIBLE grinding noises. And Now it's been overheating right from being turned on, jumping up to 67C and that's before opening any programs. until I manage to scrape together the money to get it fixed (they quoted me at 150 Argggghhhh ;; ) I'll be away for abit D= terribly sorry to everyone!

((also before anyone suggests cleaning the fan, doing this or that, I have done everything I can to try to fix it myself, at this point I need to take it in to get it opened up and checked out))
