Pencil Commissions - Open by RainyDayMariah

Reposting this info to a blog for easier sharing purposes!
In preparation for printing the first volume of my webcomic, I’m opening up very cheap, colored pencil sketch commissions. I don’t really have a cap on these. Ideally, it'd be great to get about 20 of them. Even if you aren't able to commission me at this time, I'd greatly appreciate it if you were able to share this journal around.

Will Do: Portraits, Original Characters, Characters from Fandoms, Fursonas, etc. I’m also very into the idea of doing people’s Pokémon Go Trainers ($10 for Trainer, +$2 per pokemon).

Will Not Do: Mechs/overly complicated robotic characters, character’s with overly complicated armor
Decided to do a stream today. We'll be switching to reading Dorian Gray for this one!

Oh my goodness what even is the internet guys, I don't even know. As you may or may not have notice, I have not been super active here over the past month. That's because I've been trying to plan a trip to Europe. It is both exciting and scary. Anyway, I just wanted to post a few updates before I disappear for about a month.

-Since I'll be leaving sometime next week, all currently incomplete commissions will be finished before the weeks is up.

-My webcomic, Rainy Day Dreams, will be going on a break until October.

-In it's place, The Forest, will be updating instead. It is a short story that I did as part of a 24 hour comic challenge back in July.
Ok here you go! Finally got around to doing a picture for the cover. I'll post it here later. Probs tomorrow.…
  • Listening to: awesome Tristin playlist
Gonna be doing another one of these on short notice again in a few hours: [link]
  • Eating: mini cadbury eggs
Guess what? Website! It's still not super pretty or anything, but it's coming along.

You can all add it to your bookmarks ^^ >>
Or if you'd rather, I'm also going to be posting it on Tapastic, but not as frequently >>…

The official launch is going to be on the 13th and I'll be posting both Chapters 1 and 2 at that time. From there on, it'll update Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Tapastic is only going to get the first chapter on the 13th.
I just wanted to do a quick update so people don't think I've dropped off the face of the earth. Comic is coming along, though slower than I'd like. I'm almost there, just need to finish painting like 2/3 of chapter 2 and make the website. Hopefully it will be a quicker process than the rest of it has been -_-' My goal is to have the painting at least done before the end of August. I go back to school around September 23rd-ish but I've got a big, week and a half vacation, before then. The plan is to have the site up and running before I have to go back to school though.

I've been wondering if I should just scrap my plan of having the first two chapters up when the site starts and just do the first one. I'd really rather have both of them, to get all three of the main characters introduced before going to regular (2 or 3 per week) updates, but I'd also rather make sure it started before I go back to school >-< I guess if anyone has suggestions or thoughts on that, feel free to chime in.

Old Questions:

1.) What's your favorite color combo?
pastel pink and green is a good one.

2.) If you could be any animal, alive or extinct, which would you be and why?
i really enjoy being human, but i'm pretty fond of seals right now so maybe that because i also really like being in the water and swimming. a house cat is also a good choice.

3.) Which OC of yours would you say developed the most since they were first created?
any of the three main characters from my upcoming webcomic really. though i'd say that Tristin has had the most recent development.

4.) Which OC would you say is the least developed?
i can't think of one... i have a bad habit of super developing random side characters that no one is ever going to know about -_-'

5.) Is there anything you'd change about yourself/your life right now? Why or Why not? :) (Smile)
better at time management maybe? i've gotten better about it, but i still have a bad habit of getting distracted by video games or netflix when i need to be working.

6.) What's your biggest goal? Have you achieved it? ;u;
currently it's to sucessfully launch my comic that i've been working on since high school as a webcomic before summer ends. i'm so close, i really hope i can do it.

7.) What's your favorite dish/food~?
is chocolate a food? taro smoothies are also great. and mushrooms... i really like food.

8.) Who's your favorite Character out of ALL your characters? >8D
imma take the parent answer and say i love all my children equally? i'm particularly fond of Michael though.

9.) Any embarrassing moments you wanna talk about? UuU
uh well the most recent was this last weekend when i locked myself out of the house while the boyfriend was out trying to pick up relatives and i need to give a friend a ride home from work. left both the house key and the car key on the table, because i don't think well at midnight, and to top it off, i locked myself outside in my stupidest pair of pajamas.

10.) Are you glad this is over? XD

i gotta make up some questions now don't i?

New Questions:

1) What's your latest music obsession?

2) What's your favorite book or series? It can be a comic or webcomic.

3) Where do you hope to be in 10 years?

couldn't think of anymore. here are my tags~:

Hey there everyone! So as you may or may not have notice, I haven't been posting much art lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been doing any. I've actually been doing quite a lot in preparation for finally launching my comic, Rainy Day Dreams, as a webcomic. I've got a lot to do so you may not see a lot of stuff from me until the launch count down. I'll probably be posting the chapter title pages once they are done and some of the banner designs and stuff.

I'm super excited :> I hope I can get you all super excited about it too so that you will all want to read it. I'm not for sure yet when the launch is going to take place. I'm hoping for either late July or early August. Possibly the end of August depending on what life decides to throw at me. I'll let you all know when I have a website and all that for it. I'll be posting at least the first chapter on da, and I'll be doing a 10 or 20 day count down on my tumblr before the launch. If you want to follow along, that'll be at I'll also be posting on there when I update so I would recommend following me there anyway. If nothing else, I tend to also reblog a lot of cute animal photosets so there's that.

I'll let you know when I have more updates. Here is my Rainy Day folder if anyone would like to get a sneek peak ;p…
Ugh took me forever to do this, sorry -_-' I asked to be featured in another persons OC feature, so now it's my turn! Ok, rules are the first 10 people who comment get a feature of my favorite oc of theirs along with a little explanation of why I think they are great :3

If you comment, please do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (or original journalist) in the first slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone!

:iconharmony-walls: Cinder

You Will Never Forget Me by Harmony-Walls Cinder's Web by Harmony-Walls
Personally I really love the way Harmony-Walls does the coloring for her. It's part of the reason I was so drawn to her in the first place. Her design in general is very cute. I also really enjoy reading her story in Sweet as Salt. She's a fun take on Cinderella.

:iconnoniway: Lan Shui

Break Time WIP by Noniway Lan Shui - Light by Noniway Lan Shui - Opening by Noniway

Another oc who's design I think is really neat :3 Lan Shui strikes me as being a bad ass. Unfortunately, there isn't too much about her it doesn't seem. I'd really love to see some more comics from Noniway featuring her. I imagine the world she exists in being pretty cool also.

Hello Everyone~

So, I finally have a little downtime to do this, and I've put it off for a long time, but I would like to do some ‘Donation/Pay-what-you-want Commissions’.
As a design student, I end up creating a lot of files for school. A lot of really big files. I have needed an external hard drive for a while now, but the need has become much more pressing as of late.

My main goal for the Donation Commissions, so that I can get the external hard drive I need is $100(50/100).

As a stretch goal, it would be nice if I could make $600. I'm going to be moving soon and between housing deposits and having to pay for Spring Quarter tuition, it would be nice to have a small buffer.

    People can toss in whatever amount they want and in return I’ll draw anything you request(with very few limitations). I’d like to ask for a minimum of $5(USD, Paypal only) for digital commissions and $8 for traditional media commissions (watercolors). Please be kind with your requests. I will be more likely to do extra things/more elaborate work for people who throw in more. Slots are unlimited until I reach my goal.

Traditional Examples: Contest: Prince Mimo by RainyDayMariah  Looking Fresh To Death by RainyDayMariah Trick or Treat (theHappyLandFill contest entry) by RainyDayMariah Gift: Ian and Vex by RainyDayMariah

Digital Examples: Pumkin And Squib by RainyDayMariah Contest Entry: lmsubscribing's OC by RainyDayMariah Claudia and Lycon - Nap Time by RainyDayMariah Zale by RainyDayMariah

** For extra examples: (CAUTION: NSFW included)

- Females and Males of any shape
- Inhuman creatures/features
- Furries
- Sexual tones
- Short comics (under 5 pages)
- Fanart
- OC’s
- Any orientation pairings/couples
- Animals

- Excessive gore
- Pedophilia
- HumanxAnimal

If interested feel free to note me here or email me at:
*Paypal address is the above email!

I would be greatly appreciative of anyone willing to feature this in a journal or poll entry also. If it would make people more inclined to do so, I will offer free line sketches for those who do.
:iconthefancytunafish: is celebrating getting 400 watchers and is having a contest! And I am going to participate in it since I am one of those 400 :) here is the link for anyone what wants to check it out:

In other news, I just got my 40th watcher! .... *goes and cries in the corner due to the comparison* Anyway, seriously though, I'm super stoked about it. And because I'm stoked about it, I'm going to do a raffle. Anyone who is a watcher, and has been one before me posting this, can comment on this and be entered to win a free, colored, single character request from me. If you'd like a have your name entered, just comment below or send me a note if you are shy ~UuU~ I'll accept names through next Thursday~

Order you calendars now!

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 12, 2013, 10:11 AM

Hey everyone,

I know there wasn't a super lot of people that wanted to get calendars from me, but if you are one of those people who hasn't contacted me about it, now is the time! Just send me a note telling me what exactly you want. Options are below:

Basic Calendar: $15
This is a 12 month calendar with a "playlist" of predetermined images by me. It comes with a super spiffy clear plastic front cover, vinyl backing and a little plastic hanging device.

Buyer's Choice Calendar: $17
In this option, the buy may pick up to 13 (one for the cover, twelve for the months) images to be printed in the calendar.

Sketchbook Calendar: $18
For this option, I will do a mystery sketch on the very last page of the calendar for you.

Too Pro Calendar: $20
Combines the benefits of both Buyer's Choice and Sketchbook Calendars.

These do not include shipping charges, which you will also need to pay. I will try to go for the cheapest shipping while still making sure the calendar doesn't get destroyed in the process.

I would also like to add that all calendars will be hand crafted by yours truly ^^ We are doing them for the holidays at work so that is where they are coming from. So not only do you get some exceptionally done art, you also get an exceptionally crafted calendar, printed, punched and bound by me~

The Rules:
* The avatars of the first 10 people commenting this journal, and the three deviations I like most from their galleries will be put on the list below!
* If you comment, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (me) and three of my art on the first place.
* The idea of this is not to get a free feature, but to spread art around for everyone!

Please check the galleries of those who will be featured and give them some love!!

Art Trade - Rainny Day Mariah OC Harriet by XOX-Nata
This is the other person's half of the art trade that I just did. I lurv it X3 <3
Well, August is over and so is the August sketch requests. I think it was pretty much all a round a successful endeavor on my part. I actually finished it anyway, unlike the last sketch project I tried to do ^^' But anyway, here are all the lovely characters assembled together~

August Character Requests: Page 1 by RainyDayMariah August Character Requests: Page 2 by RainyDayMariah August Character Requests: Page Three by RainyDayMariah August Character Requests: Page Four by RainyDayMariah August Character Requests: Page Five by RainyDayMariah  August Character Requests: Page Six by RainyDayMariah

So, as I asked in my most recent poll and received unanimous approval for, it looks like I will be doing 12 days of Christmas pin ups again this year. I think I'm going to do them a little bit differently though this year. Instead of doing one a week for the twelve weeks leading up to Christmas, I'm going to do the twelve pictures in the time leading up till December 12th or 13th and then post them during the actual 12 days before Christmas. Also, another shake up from last year, I will also be taking suggestions for the pin ups. You can suggest pretty much anything like a character, a location, some kind of costume theme, whatever. But keep in mind, these are just suggestions. I will use things that strike my fancy and disregard things that don't. Above all else, this is for fun so let's all keep it that way ^^

Suggestions can be noted to me if you are too shy to comment below. Though I would prefer suggestions to be commented. It makes it easier for me to keep track of them that way :)
Since I have finished my first list of character requests, y'all get the awesome chance of asking for a second one! Or just a first one if you didn't make a request during round one. Here are the pages so far~……

You just get links because the pages won't load enough for me to get thumbnails~
I'll probably be posting page three this weekend.
