Burning Lilies Chapter 4
Francis looked as if he saw a ghost. A woman...in war? Not just a woman, but a young girl at that? His mind was looking for all of the different ways to kindly say "no way" when she interrupted his thought flow.
"It wasn't a question. I'm going to fight no matter what you tell me."
Even more stunned, Francis had no choice but to submit to her power. He finally knew one thing about the mysterious Joan: when she had her mind set, there was no way of dissuading her. He stood, kissed her hand, and started to make his leave, when Joan said,
"Don't you need an army?"
"I already have men back home, Joan."
"But they will require a fee, when my people are willing to aid you in any which way for free."
France wondered. Why is she going to such lengths to help me? Why such concern? As if she read his mind, Joan answered,
"I love France, but I do not love you, Francis."
Francis stepped back a little in the shock of it. Love France but not love Francis? Had could that make sense? Wasn't he both Fra

Burning Lilies Chapter 3
Francis tried to come closer, but the weight of guilt and inferiority was too much on his knees, and he fell hard to the ground. There, the strongest country in the world, was on his knees, almost at tears, at the doorstep of a peasant. As he silently sobbed, she stood there, watching his tears dampen the ground beneath him. She leaned her broom against the outside wall of her shack and asked with a thundering voice,
"What do you want of me, Monsieur Bonnefoy?"
Francis suddenly looked up, surprised that she spoke. Tears were still streaming down his eyes. Even though she had such a voice, there was still a hint of tenderness.
"I...was...wrong. I never should have doubted you. You must see this, and see what you make of it."
He finally stood up, but there was definitely something different about him. He didn't have that cold exterior. It seemed he did want help. Francis went up to Joan, but not to close, and handed her a piece of paper embroidered in red, blue, and white.

Burning Lilies Chapter 2
"Joan, you say?" said the pompous Bonnefoy. "You know, I am having a great deal of trying to believe you, but you are a simple peasant. Do you have proof that what you say is true?"
Again, he had gotten close to her, but this time she had no place to escape. Still, she looked him straight in the eye, not afraid of his larger demeanor. Francis, though as suave as he was with women of all ages, was astonished at her innocent beauty. What was that smell? Was it...flowers? More like...lilies...
She began to speak. "Monsieur Bonnefoy, the only proof I have is my faith in God. If you do not believe me, you can march right up to Italy and and talk to Holy Maria Herself!"
Francis never had someone speak to him in such a tone. Instead of dragging her by the hair out of his room, he was strangely attracted to her assertiveness, especially for being a woman. Still, he did not believe her story.
"Away with you. I have come to the conclusion that you are just a simple peasant trying to rise in rank

Burning Lilies Chaper 1
It all started with a girl.
A girl, yes, and such a simple girl indeed. Her hair was a tangle of dirty blond and the fallen fur of various farm animals. She came all the way from the countryside, and it was so far. It was evident that she walked the whole way, since her shoes, if you dare call them shoes, were worn down and her large toe was peeking out from the right boot. She was waiting in a great room, requesting to talk with a man who wanted nothing to do with anything but himself.
A servant asked the girl to wait a moment and he scurried up an elaborately decorated set of stairs. He reached a room where a man sat in a detailed, fashioned armchair. The servant stuttered as he talked to his superior.
"Mo-Monsieur Bon-Bonnefoy. A g-g-girl is here to sp-sp-speak with you."
The man took a sip of the wine he had placed on the grand nightstand just moments before.
"Is she a beauty?"
The servant had a puzzled look, "Why do you ask, Monsieur?"
"I only talk to beautiful roses, like me, no?

Burning Lilies Chapter 5
Joan had no clue what Francis was doing. They were walking through many hallways and through many doorways. The castle was vast, as if it was city within itself. In the back of her mind, she thought, but just for a brief second, what is the real motive of this seemingly long journey through the castle. Did he want to...with her...she shook off the thought. Joan now trusted this man, and she dare call him a friend. He wouldn't do something like that. Something had changed him in those past weeks, but what, she could not figure out.
They finally reached a greatly ordained door. It was huge, going all the way to the ceiling. The crack under the door shone a great light, and conversations were going on inside. Francis opened the door just a crack and stuck his head inside. Why was he so secretive about this, wondered Joan. His head finally came out and he smiled at Joan. It was neither a smirk nor a smile of lust. It was a genuine smile indeed. Francis stepped to his side and said "Ladies

It's been a month since I opened up commissions....and so far I've had great experiences with it!!  People are very kind enough to commission me and their requests were very fun to draw!! :D


There was one thing I noticed about my commission plans.... I might have priced the commissions too low considering how much time and effort I take into working those :/
First of all, if the request was to draw commissioner's OCs or the characters/things that I have never drawn....I look at references closely and then practice drawing them in my style to get use to it before working on the actual commission:/ to make them look natural in my style.
Second, I find references of objects such as jackets, boots, flowers, underwater, and etc. to make my drawing not to look shitty but neat and good to look at :) and to give a best drawing that I can create at this level of drawing skills right now to my dear commissioners :)
At last, I didn't learn until recent that paypal takes 3% PLUS $0.30 for the transfer fee :/ so I haven't got the whole amount that I want for the commissions :(

Therefore, I will raise the prices of the commission soon or later.  I especially want to change the prices on the coloring commission since it took extremely longer hours than the other two (sketch and line art).  My usual coloring style is more like a painting with a line art (I think. I'm not sure if you can call my coloring "painting" lol since I've ever really painted on actual canvas in my real life other then my last 1 year at high school) ....painting coloring style takes more time to color than a cell shading :/ (or I guess it depends on colors,time of the day that the characters are in, and details of the drawing but painting style definitely need patient and details to put in :))  So I was thinking about separating coloring commission: flat, cell shading, and CG painting.

For now, the prices of my commission plans stay as the first one [nana-boshi.deviantart.com/jour… (journal) fav.me/d456ls3 (deviation)] since I still haven't got a good idea on how much I should raise it without making future commissioners feel robbed by me lol  But after doing several commissions, I KNOW that I put too much work and effort on making my dear commissioners satisfy; therefore, I think I deserve a little rise on my wage ;) :XD:
For the changes I'm going to make on the prices, I need to make samples for it so I think it takes time to change the prices :/ (I still am going through some random artists out there who gives a commission and see how they are pricing their commissions with their drawing skills :/)

I briefly got an idea for full body though...since that's the only requests I have got so far :) and have more experience in those XD
I'm thinking about pricing the CG painted full body 1 character to be $25. :) and hmm...I'm actually having trouble on how much I should charge for the additional characters :/  I'm concerning between "double the price for the additional characters" or make it "$18 per additional characters" ^^;  I checked other deviants commission prices and many of them seems to double the price for the additional characters....then I gave a thought about it....and came up with an answer that doubling the price doesn't sound pleasant to me :/....if I want to pay for commission, I would give up on it if I hear a sound of "double"....I'm not saying it's wrong to do that, but it's just that I don't like the sound of it.  Words like "discount""sale""less""%off" are good when it comes to money lol But like I said I know I put so much effort and time on it...I should be awarded with "double"...?^^; hhhhhmmmmmm sooo harrdd.....so yeah I still need more time and a good working brain(lol) to come up with decent prices....OTL  Biggest problem is I don't know if my drawing skill is good enough to get paid $25 for full body color commission :/ but if I look from wage aspect, I'm being paid a lot less then I should be getting :/ It usually takes about 4-5hrs(excluding sketch and lineart) to finish 1 full body colored drawing and takes longer if character has more detailed clothing, accessories, and etc.


Oh I'm also thinking about opening up point commission because there is DevWEARs, stickers, accessories, that I would love to have, and I wish to experience premium membership at least once in my life! :XD: but I haven't got a good idea for what to do with point commissions :/ I'm thinking about doing just chibi point commissions with a smaller size than a paypal commission and with cell shading.  Or come up with a theme already for the commissioners and just draw into that :/ so that way I can make it very cheap point commission for customers^^
But I'm not really sure on this one for now :/ I need to give a thoughts about paypal commissions first! XD




So.....What do you think? Did the reasons about raising the price sounded fair? Or I just sounded greedy and bitchy? lol ....OTL


Like I said at the beginning, I'm having a great experiences with commissions! (I really think it helped me give a motivation to draw more and actually improve on drawing skills! :D and helped me to motivate myself to challenge in drawing new things!^^)  Therefore, I hope to seek a continuation of great experiences with a commissioners and with their requests!! :D :D :D :D


Okay I think I'm done for now!! XD Thank you very much if you read this long journal!!! :hug::heart: Hope you'll have a great day!:salute:
