Still here, painting away, looking forward to sharing some new stuff.
- Reading: Calendars
Year of the HorseHallo, feeling marginally better, and working away to celebrate the New Year. Apologies to anyone with commissions, should see some results sooner rather than later. Hope everyone's year is going well so far, now that I'm over mono/sinus infections, mine's going swell!
I realize my updates have been pretty terrible, my access to internet and computer were severely limited for basically the entire month of December. Coupled with an awkward camera situation, it's been hard to stay up to date on here with pictures, but I plan to try and figure out a good way to not only post completed stuff, but also some kind of functional WIP uploads, or some step-by-steps. If anyone knows how to achieve this on dA (multiple photos+text? WIP pictures that aren't separate submissions, but rather sub-submissions?), please comment.
I'll also try and be less anti-social- you guys/gals are awesome, and always brighten my day with your comments, I'm just terrible at responding. Hope everyone has a great year,
Happy HolidaisicalJust a quick shout out to anyone with commissions: I'm working on them, but seem to have come down with something. I've lost a ~week so far coughing and otherwise feeling shitty. I value your patronage and faith in me to handle your cards, but also don't want to force anything and risk doing a crappy job basically, so as always, thanks for your patience, and I'll continue to chip away for now, and hopefully once I start feeling better I can do your commissions justice.
I'm sure this cold snap has something to do with it, I seem to get hit every year with a bad cold at some point or another. Nothing too serious, but enough to make me hate the north.
I'll try to keep you all updated when I get the ball rolling again!
Hope everyone is having a safe and happy holiday season!
Winter was comingNow it's here yo. Putting a hold on any further commissions, my plate is full for the moment and I have other projects that need attending. As I'm sure many of you are aware, there are quite a few other talented artists who do kickass alters (much to my chagrin- trying to keep up with them is absurdly difficult).
You can find a lot of them posting here: http://forums.mtgsalvation.com/showthread.php?t=93474 I first got into this process with that thread (which is now massive), and if you haven't checked it out yet, take a look!
Thanks for watching, I'm hoping that the auction content I have planned will make some of you happy. No ETAs on that though, I will upload as many as I can, when I can.
Hope everyone is well!
SeasonalHello everyone! First of all, thanks for all the kind comments and for watching. Second, I'm going to start outlining new commission outlines, to deal with an incoming schedule (all good and involves art, but I know I'll be busy). I always appreciate feedback, but most of this is due in part to keep things streamlined, hassle free, and hopefully more organized (but probably not).
I understand that Magic is not cheap, but it only adds to my urge to make something that's great, rather than perhaps leaning towards an assembly line state of mind. I'm raising the price of individual MTG alter commissions. The space is larger for me now, but more time (and supply) consuming as well, so I have to ante up. There are 2 cards posted right now, a blue rare and blue uncommon. Expect more variety and range in auctions posted.
I will return to auctioning cards, and there should be enough diversity among them to make everyone's wallet happy. Some of you have asked to be put in line when I start commi
THE FALLI have a few other projects for now, but I'd like to keep eBay active while I'm busy with other things. Those things are art related if not MTG related, so hopefully you guys won't mind.
First (and ongoing) project is a local grant to paint with oils, second is a charity art book for VALENTINE'S DAY (I think), everything else needs to simmer down for a while, especially after I get going with the oils.
So glad you dig my stuff, thanks for watching and for all the beautiful comments.
nother edit: Watch that movie "The Fall". Is gud.
UpdateJust a quick update for anyone with commissions, they are approaching completion en masse, should be getting more Sakuras in the mail tomorrow to finish everything up. I'd like to say that everything will be complete before next weekend, though I'm more interested in making sure your cards look as polished as possible.
To anyone who's messaged me regarding commissions: I'll have updated info soon, and will attempt to set a queue up. I'll have to dig a little to try and get the people who've been waiting longest.
Thank you for the massive amount of patience from everyone, I've been working on my mental/physical health in the past month or so, and making some good progress. You've all been awesome the whole time, anyone with commissions that have had to wait exorbitant amounts of time, I'll be adding sweets to your return envelope as a thank you, you're all eligible for sainthood.
So fresh and so cleanBack from an impromptu vacation, hoping the break will reflect in my new stuff. Slow and steady, just a little sorry about the "slow" part, I'll get some stuff up soon. Thanks for watching. <3
Be back in a weekEverything's good, to people with commissions, small creative delays, but things are still moving. I'm going to be away from technology for a spell, but I'll try and make it up to you guys.
Snowed InQuitting cigarettes, trying to work in well ventilated areas, trying not to drown in coffee.
After losing at least a week to "other" work, I've also only taken longer on commissions. It's a quality choice, but if you have a commission or are planning one, I've started outlining a new commission info sheet of sorts. One that hopefully clarifies my process (I'll be including a tutorial/pictures), and a few disclaimers, mostly all related to me taking time to pass a quality standard. I'll also probably outline the process a bit more, since I still receive a lot of questions on just about every aspect of it.
Stay tuned, I'll try and make things happen sooner rather than later (as always).
Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
