Update 20140320 !
Sorry for the long hiatus, a lot happened and I'm still nowhere for the commissions. My dad went to emergencies some time ago because of one of the nurse at home... >___>" After that accident, we completely change the nurse and we're really content with him right now. Let's see for how long xD
Last weekend I was in the belgian convention MIA with my fellow Kai-Yan
and another guy who doesn't have any DA account LOL Yankoro
And just after that I got school again OTZ and my brain couldn't take it all like that so now I'm sick with the cold
If you had told me that now I will be that busy, I wouldn't have believed you but omg, I am really too busy OTZ I'm reforming the Yankoro
group (adding new members) and launching a real fanzine.
And people, I haven't forgotten the commissions. Just, be patient with me please. I swear, I will have way more time on July. I'll be back for real. well, hope so...
Another funny story with my dad, we were, mom, dad, bro and I, shopping to get a new iron for my mom because I broke the previous one when ironing (sorry mom). I was in charge of my dad and I push his wheelchair through the mall. Then, I just stopped and was looking at that beauuuutiful smartphone (that 2 of my dear friends owe already lol) and then I saw the price and was omg no, urgh. Then we walked back and my dad tried to tell me something but it wasn't audible at all. I thought he just wanted to go see the DvD's for new movies or whatnot. But no, he was pointing at me ( I thought he just wanted to go back lol) and was trying to say "birthday". My brain stopped midway but then I realised he wanted to buy me something for my upcoming birthday (lol I had completely forgotten about that though). Aaaand, he said "phone", pointing at me. It was funny aahaha xD But I was like "wtf dad no, it's so pricey *sob*" But he insisted and didn't want to leave the mall before I get that phone xDDDDD So, to please him (and me ofc LOL), I bought it.
Lol every update has its small funny story. Sorry to spam you guys, but thought you would have want to know a bit more about his state ^^
Update 20140219 !
Hey guys, a quick update about commissions again. I'm working on them but lately, my eyes have been hurting a lot. I think it's due to the fact I'm constantly on the computer working for 3D, commissions, organizing conventions etc.... So it's really gonna take me more time than expected. I'm sorry. I have to take a break every 10 mins or else my eyes hurt a lot T~T
Buuut here's a funny thing, I ordered some wigs for daily use and one for fun (a pink one) and.... I put it on my dad xD
At first I was just trying them out in the livingroom and I saw my dad looking at me, like, "who's that girl, where's my daughter" kind of face y'know. So I was liiiiike, daaaad wanna try the pink one ? xDDD The funny thing is that he agreed ahahah !!! So, it was a really fun day, and here's a pic :
U can't really tell but I assure you, he's smiling in that pic, he was posing like a boss ahahah xD He must be thinking that her his daughter is really weird for buying stuff like that.
Also, that pic was from a little bit after we began gastrostomy, I think he's really feeling better!
Update 20140216 !
My dad is better since we began the gastrostomy, we have change so much for him in 2013, it was really the year of change for our family xD
He has gained some weight ( I think, when I put him on the bed, I can feel that he's heavier (ouch my back x'D ) but since we haven't wheighin him properly, I don't know for sure, it's either than or I'm getting weak xD
Gonna workouttt pfff)
Also, for the commissions, I really want to thank everybody that have been part of my fundraising. I really really didn't expect for so much kindness from people.
And for those who didn't get a reply from me yet, I have a really slow internet connexion right now and have to finish my senior project. So I made a list of my current workload for the commissions on my front page ( under the panel " commission list" ). I'll try to update it weekly, or twice a month. (sorry, really absent from DA TwT" )
You can see in that list a "waiting list", so if you want to know when is your turn, please, head to that panel
Be well guys ! [end update]
Sorry, I wrote a long text on Tumblr so I'm just gonna paste it here ///

Guys, please, hear me out. I’m ashamed to ask this but please.
Ever since I was born, my dad was ill. That illness is something rare and doesn’t have any cure (and the researchers aren’t gonna give a shit about this illness since it only runs in the family wtf; yes, you read it well, I’m gonna have that shit too.) It’s an illness that only occurs around 40y/o and it gets you lose your balance, then gradually (and pretty quick for my dad), you’re gonna get into a wheelchair for the rest of your life. (not going into the details because it’s too depressing, sorry). My dad’s condition is really bad. I didn’t want to tell it on public but things change and I need some cash because my dad can’t eat anymore so we had to do a gastrostomy ( you know those tubes that we put directly in the stomach and feed them there ? yeah, that’s that). The worse is that he was already really weak and only has skin on his bones, just like the victims of the WWII…. And after the surgery, we freaked out because he didn’t wake up after 2hours wtf. So yeah right now, he has 2 tubes, a urinary tube and now a feeding tube. The feeding pockets (dont know the right name lol) cost alone 500€ (+-690$) per month and the insurance only pays 100€. And the gastrostomy is for a lifetime (so that means 400€*12 =4800€ per year….). The thing is, my mom doesn’t work since she has to be by my dad’s side 24/24h 7/7d and my dad’s allowance can barely pay the living expenses and the house.
So I think you figured that by now but I want to make some cash by doing really cheap commissions and help my parents. (and also making you happy )
I’m sorry about that, I didn’t want to tell it on public because I don’t want any pity or anything but I really need some help. I’ll be gratefull and you won’t be deceived by the commission TwT//
