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 Moonlightfirstname.lastname@example.org 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!
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!
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!
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! $40-55 dollars
I hope you've all been doing well! I've missed everyone! I've still been fairly active on Twitter so always feel free to check on my stuff there if I go quiet on here again, I don't think I will tho I'm ready to come back and buckle down with posting stuff regularly and being more active
Update: July 19
Hey everyone, a lot has happened in the last month. First off I'll start with the very tragic news. about 2-3 weeks ago one of my uncles caretakers, Mel committed suicide. It hit everyone very hard. On top of that, the budget for my uncles care is not consistent enough to have him be able to stay at home it's looking like. There is only enough money to have his one Caretaker stay for 3 hours a day. Which is bad because if my uncle has to use the bathroom, it just happens he is not in control of those muscles. Not being able to be cleaned up right away can cause bedsores and all other sorts of horribleness
So it's looking like he will have to go into a home. The only places his insurance covers are not so great ones I'm afraid. But that is looking like what's going to happen Monthly care for him to have a 24 hour or even 12 hour a day care, paying the caretakers 17.5 an hour is 5880$ 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.
Also if you visit you might be able to say hi to me if I'm working that day!
Bonus edit, I posted a picture of the mascot himself, Chug!
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 Moonlightemail@example.com
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!
Computer fixing goal reached! so no more discounted commissions
Also just to let everyone know, I'm taking a short break till friday, I overworked my wrist abit and it's still abit sore/swollen. Annnnd my wonderfully lovely cat... had a potty accident on my drawing tablet. It's not broken I just need to carefully clean it xX So I'll be emailing/noting everyone with updates on friday! D: I hope you understand!
Examples of my sketch work
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))
