Pokemon Yellow Electric Challenge

Tue Oct 31, 2017, 3:03 PM
Recently, I managed to get a copy of Pokémon Yellow going. I figured that I could play it like old times or I could go back in with something especially challenging.

I figure, with how many times I've played through it before, a challenge would be a welcome change.

So, here are some rules I've put forth for myself:

- No catching wild Pokémon who aren't of the Electric-type. This extends to the Safari Zone and anywhere else Pokémon can be caught wild. Event wild Pokémon, like Snorlax, are no exception to this rule.

- You must accept all Pokémon given to you by the game, but they are to be used solely as HM slaves unless they are or can evolve into an Electric type. This allows you to have Squirtle, Charmander, Bulbasaur, Lapras, Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan, and Omanyte/Omastar or Kabuto/Kabutops as HM slaves. (Squirtle/Lapras for Surf, Charmander for Strength, and Bulbasaur for Cut as an example. This will allow you to progress through areas you otherwise wouldn't be able to.)

- You are allowed to evolve a Pokémon given to you by the game for HM compatibility (Charizard/Fly), but not by gym or Elite Four battling. Gifted Pokémon must be evolved by battling wild Pokémon only.

- Pokémon you can buy or win (Magikarp or any Game Corner Pokémon) are not considered to be gifts. You are not allowed to buy or exchange your winnings for them.

- Aerodactyl has been allowed in other challenges, but since you have to pay to enter the Pewter Museum to obtain him, I'm considering him bought and paid for, therefore, you aren't allowed to have him.

- Legendary Pokémon (see: Mewtwo and the three legendary birds), due to their rarity and difficulty to obtain, are exempt from all rules except for two:
-- No cheating them into the game. For Mewtwo, you must wait until after you've defeated the Elite Four to gain access to Cerulean Cave. For the legendary birds, you must catch them at their game-designated locations. The latter can be done before you face off against the Elite Four. (Zapdos, Power Plant; Articuno, the Seafoam Islands; Moltres, Victory Road.)
-- If it isn't Zapdos, due to the typing of this challenge, then you only have one opportunity to catch it. If you fail, then you cannot try again. Yes, you can use your Master Ball to mitigate the effects of this rule. (Since you only get one Master Ball, it's up to you to choose who it goes to.)

To clarify:
--- By one chance, I don't mean one Pokéball. I mean that if the legendary Pokémon faints, you run out of Pokéballs, or you black out, that's it. You don't get to try catching it again.
--- If you blacked out, you may go back and defeat the legendary Pokémon for the experience points. You just aren't allowed to catch it.
--- If you defeated the Pokémon, even by accident, then take the experience points and walk. You aren't allowed to restart because you wanted another Pokémon to get those points.
--- If you ran out of Pokéballs, too bad. Defeat it for the points and walk. You aren't allowed to go back to reclaim those lost items. Consider it a penalty for not being adequately prepared.

- No cheating Pokémon into the game even if they match the type of the challenge. (The different Pokémon versions had exclusives. Too bad. Play with what you have. Of course, I'm looking at Electabuzz as I type this.)

- All gyms and the Elite Four must be defeated with your core team. Legendaries, as outlined by and caught in accordance with this challenge, may be considered part of your core team.

By the end of the Pokémon Yellow Electric Challenge, your core team should look similar to this:

- Pikachu/Raichu
- Eevee/Jolteon
- Voltorb/Electrode
- Magnemite/Magneton
- Zapdos
- Articuno, Moltres, or approved HM slave


That said, you are allowed doubles, triples, or even entire teams of the same Pokémon if the game permits. You wouldn't be fooling anyone with six Pikachu, Jolteon, or Zapdos, but you are allowed a full team of Electrode, Magneton, or any combination which includes multiples of these two.

If you manage to collect more than two legendaries in accordance with this challenge, then they absolutely are allowed on your team regardless of typing.

This is an example of an acceptable team if acquired following this rule set:

- Any acceptable Electric type, gifted or caught wild.
- Any Pokémon that will evolve into an Electric type or HM slave.
- Zapdos
- Articuno
- Moltres
- Mewtwo (If you want to fight the Elite Four a second time.)

I will not be streaming my gameplay. This is only for other people who may want to try the challenge.

If anyone wants updates, though, I'm willing to share but only if asked.

Did you know that the giant Pokémon Art Collaboration is still going on?

#82 Magneton- Kanto Collab by TroilusMaximus 145 - Zapdos by WistfulGem

Raichu by Little-Papership Jolteon Wants A Belly Rub by Tinker-Jet

DeviantArt Kanto Pokemon Collaboration! 105/151

Journal Entry: Fri May 9, 2014, 6:28 PM
Join us!

Skin by pjuk




Big update for current, watching participants!

Please check the recent updates.


Based on the huge Pokémon Trainer collaboration, LeafFox and

I have decided to start our own, but instead of drawing the

trainers, we'll be drawing the actual Pokémon instead.

Mouse over the bubbles below to join us.





#1. Recent updates.


Big Update:


For those of you who remember, we were once very adamant
about people watching us before participating in this collaboration.


I want to make it clear that we were not looking to punish you guys.


We are also aware that it's only become more difficult with
deviantART not allowing us to separate polls and status updates
from our journal entries.


With that said, the primary purpose of this exercise was to make
sure everyone was reading the rules and to make sure that we'd be
able to contact everyone easily once the collaboration was finished.


However, the news is good: since we first introduced this
collaboration, deviantART has implemented a Mentions feature
which will allow us to mention/tag everyone once the collaboration
has finished.


What does this mean? Well, congratulations. You can stop watching me now.


As for the rules, they've been updated to reflect the changes
mentioned above.


Newcomers, please read them. They are there to save you time
and grief.


Thank you.





#2. RULES


- One Pokémon per user. (Dibs will go to the person who posts first, so even if you guys post "at the same time", DeviantArt's time stamp will determine who gets it.)

- Please choose wisely because you will not be able to change once you do.

- Anyone who misses the deadline will forfeit their Pokémon, giving someone else the chance to draw it, and will have to sign up again if they want to participate. Keep in mind that you cannot claim the same Pokémon again.

- All submissions must be new (specifically for the collaboration), coloured, have transparent backgrounds, and be submitted as a PNG. If anyone would like to do theirs traditionally, and remove the backgrounds themselves, t
hen please remember: no lined paper. (Grid paper counts as "lined".) Quality must be acceptable, so no camera phone quality; scanners are the best way to go. Also, please do not edit your Pokémon after you've submitted it. We are very sympathetic to the fact that you may have missed a spot, or the shading doesn't look quite right, or the pose makes your Pokémon look debilitated, but we would like all submissions to be finalized pieces. If your OCD is acting up something fierce, then please ask the collaboration hosts before you change anything.

- Speaking of shading, if you do choose to shade, the light source must be in the top right corner. Please do not have your Pokémon cast a shadow on the ground. We will add that in the final piece ourselves.

- Pokémon must be depicted full bodied. The pose will be left up to you, but please keep it appropriate. (Images must be safe for work; in other words, no 18+ material.) Also, no objects to obscure the view of your Pokémon. Squirtle blowing a bubble or Charmander using Ember is fine, but please don't stick a giant rock in front of Geodude. We want to see your Pokémon.

- If you're going to include an attack, please don't have the edges cut off. Half a bubble doesn't make much sense placement-wise. It makes it really hard to place your Pokémon in the final collaboration. Also, keep the attack in your Pokémon's proximity. As a point of reference, no ice beam, hyper beam, dragon rage or any long beams or twisters. The focus is your Pokémon, not the attack.

- No tracing or copying of official art. All art must be original, and by you, so you may not do a sketch, then have someone else line/colour it. It must be yours from start to finish.

- When you sign up, please don't automatically assume you have the Pokémon. Please wait until you have a deadline to start work/submit or else your piece may not count as being "for this collab".

- Once submissions are completed, a Download button must be available. If it is not, then please upload a second copy to your Sta.sh and note me with the link so I may download it. The same applies if you choose to add a signature or watermark. Signatures and watermarks are fine, but they're not part of the Pokémon, and are therefore not part of the collaboration.

- The bigger your picture, the better. (Minimum size: 1,000px x 1,000px.)

- If your submission fails to follow the rules, we reserve the right to deny it.

- The deadline for submissions will be exactly one month from the time you sign up. (Ex. If you sign up May 13th, you will have until June 13th.)

- Place a star next to your Pokémon's name to let us know that you've read the rules. (We don't care what kind of star, okay? Just
as long as it's a star.)





#3. FAQ


"Are we allowed to submit Pokémon as sprites?"

No.



"Are we allowed to submit black and white pieces?"

No. We will accept only coloured pieces. No sketches, and no digitally coloured black and white (monochrome) pieces.



"Are we allowed to submit shiny versions of our Pokémon?"

No. We will be accepting the Pokémon in only their common colours. If you'd like to do a shiny version of the Pokémon for yourself, however, that's perfectly fine.



"Do Mega versions of Pokémon count?"

No, classic Pokémon only.



"May I draw more than one Pokémon for the collaboration?"

Only one Pokémon, and you may not draw multiples of the same one either, even if it's the one you were assigned.



"May I draw clothes/props on/with my Pokémon?"

No. For all purposes, we'd like the Pokémon to be drawn as they are naturally, and don't want to see them with any accents that they don't already have like Machoke's belt, Primeape's boxing gloves, Jynx's dress, Farfetch'd's leek, and Cubone's bone.



"But I looked at the completed entries, and Pikachu has a neckerdoodle."

I admit it: I screwed up. I was hoping that Pokémon being drawn without trainer influence would be a given, but it's not. With that said, Pikachu was submitted before the no trainer influence AKA. no clothes rule was explicitly implemented, and in all good consciousness, we couldn't force someone to start over when (at the time of their submission) it wasn't against the rules. However, it is against the rules now, and we expect everyone to be aware of this, and abide by it. Any future Pokémon submitted with clothing articles or props not native to them will be denied.



"Why does our Pokémon have to be at least 1,000 x 1,000?"

Because if your Pokémon is smaller than 1,000 x 1,000, then your Pokémon will need to be moved to the back of the line. By this, I mean they will be in the distance and be harder to see. We will not make your Pokémon bigger for you because it will pixelate the image and bring down the overall quality of the collaboration. We also will not downsize the overall image just to accommodate you, so if you submit your Pokémon and it doesn't at least meet the minimum size standard, don't be angry when your Pokémon is hobbling along, out of sight, and blending into the background somewhere. (Also, don't try to be a wise guy. 1,000 x 1,000 refers to your Pokémon's size, not your Pokémon's size + transparent pixels.)



"How big is too big?"

If you're wondering how big "too big" is, then don't worry about it. It's far easier to downsize and retain quality than it is to make bigger, so if your image is very large, we will take care of it.





#4. Pictorial examples of what's acceptable.


No shading is fine:

Shading with top right as the light source; no shadow(s) on the ground:


Charmeleon V2 by ValenAndNightInc




Traditional with the background removed:


[POKEMON COLLAB] Dodrio by Brizzlos
Attacks are fine as long as they stay in your Pokémon's vicinity and don't obstruct the view. (No long beams, no giant rocks in front of Geodude, etc.)

I've just spent the last few days animating something, and I'm wondering who would be interested in watching an animation stream. (Since I'm aware that animation takes hours upon hours, and is altogether incredibly tedious.)

Let me know your thoughts on an animation stream in the comments! =)

Hey, everyone! I have started a group collaboration on The-Toad-Patrol-Club, and one of the artists will be streaming her drawing of Beauty Stem live!

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great holiday and a great New Year. :heart:

 

I've decided to open with a 2014 feature list.

 

Rules:

1. For the first 15 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters. (I will go to your gallery and pick one; you don't need to tell me which one.)

2. You must be watching me. This isn't a watch/unwatch job because once you unwatch, you will be removed from my list. With less than 100 watchers, I know who you are.

 

Let the commenting commence!

I'm amazed.

 

Here I am, innocently submitting a few sketches to DeviantArt, which inevitably show up on the front page in passing, and I get a case of both begging for points via Note, and a serial favouriter who stalks the front page, favouriting everything that comes in with vigor in an effort to boost page views.

 

I'm seriously getting sick of this.

 

Really.

 

If you're new to my page, and intend to do either, turn around and mosey on home because I'm not dealing with either.

 

We all have groups where art can be submitted in an effort to boost art and gallery views, and whether you're a Premium Member or not, you have access to the Donations widget. Make use of it, or do commissions for points.

 

I am done.

You may also follow the webcomic on DeviantArt here! :heart:

People who favourite your stuff expecting you to visit their gallery then a short time later, unfavourite. All they wanted to do was harvest your unsuspecting views. Seriously. It's this whole formula.

 

What is this: Twitter? No! This is DeviantArt. Grow up, infants!

 

There are also people who do this with features under the guise of giving artists "exposure". One person I just called out on it was featuring art that already had well over 17,000 favourites on it. They definitely didn't need her help getting anymore.

 

Anyway... venting aside: The power was out yesterday in Toronto. The outage was caused by poor weather conditions; lightning and flooding. It reached as far as Mississauga and Richmond Hill; the latter seeing the flooding of one of its GO trains. (People had to be rescued from the train in boats.) I want everyone to know that I am OKAY! The ice cream melted a little but I've heard from all of my friends in the area. Everyone seems to be safe and I haven't heard of any casualties. (Thank goodness.)

 

However, for my fellow Torontonians on DeviantArt (as well as those living in the surrounding areas), we are expected to have more storms in the morning (that being just a few hours from now). I'm expecting the power to go out again, but hopefully the rain fall won't be as detrimental as it was Monday evening.

 

I will keep my phone charged so I can keep touch with anyone who feels the need to message me. (Also... better get that DS charged up and some batteries for the flashlight.)

 

Anyone waiting to hear from me will receive updates as events unfold but hopefully, the rain will bugger off so this won't be necessary.

 

As for everyone else, STAY SAFE! I love you all. :heart:

 

And for those of you awaiting art from me, don't fret. Commission information can be found here.

 

Good night all and good luck.

 

[EDIT]: To those of you who were wondering, forecast people don't know diddles about the weather because it hasn't rained all day. Looks like we're now in the clear! =)

As many of you know, I'm still not fond of the new upload page and am rather frustrated that DeviantArt doesn't offer a downward-compatible uploader for the users who use older systems. They try to brush it off by saying that those people are a minority. Well, of COURSE they're a minority. They're now not uploading AT ALL because of the stupid new system. Frankly, I'd like to know when the statistics were taken.

I also want a green uploader option. I realize that to many people, my complaints about Sta.sh being white seems superficial... but frankly, I DON'T think it's cleaner, prettier and easier to use. I think it's bland, ugly and more confusing for newer users.

Whatever. Can't please the world. I'm not going to continue avoiding DeviantArt just because the people running the place don't know any better. I paid for my subscription... I might as well get the most out of it.

Anyway...

To those wondering about my debt issue from back in September, I've paid it off myself and wrote it off as a loss. Not the end of the world, however, the next time I run a campaign for someone in need, I will do it differently.

With that said, I would still like to make up my loss in commissions. To those who I currently owe commissions, you have my deepest apologies... especially because I know I've been posting pictures from my camera to DeviantArt over the course of the month. For those who know me... you'll know that I work with the handicapped and elderly and have been assigned to take people out on the days that I work  (weather providing, of course)... and with my new gift (the camera from my father) and improved weather conditions, I've been encouraged to go to different parks (Earl Bales, High Park, Queen's Park, other much smaller parks)... So while my first priority has been tending to my client, I have been asking the speech-capable if I can snap pictures (which has been receiving a lot of "yes" responses because most of them love dogs and nature). I would take pictures of my clients too but some cannot talk and those that do... well, even if they consent, I eh... ahem... wouldn't want the people who know them to get mad at me if they find out.

So... for now, I've been snapping pictures before and after work and uploading a number that I like in an attempt to get better at handling my camera.

What does this mean for commissions?

NOTHING! This does not affect commissions! I am aware that I am still behind and everyone has my deepest apologies for being forced to wait so long! I will not let my photography take precedence over what I owe people. All of the photography I've been doing so far has been opportunity-only!

To anyone else who would like to open a commission with me, please be aware that you will be in a line-up and it might take me a while to get to you. However, I will NOT charge you until I reach you in the queue. So don't worry about paying and then being left waiting forever. There are only two people in my queue right now who have paid and believe me, I'm having all of the guilt forever right now because I still have not finished what I set out to months ago... but I will! Yes, I will!

Since the ending of the campaign, I've found myself with a minor debt of around $600 ($322.31 now)...

While :iconsahtori-kamaya: has graciously offered to reimburse me, I'm still short funds in the meantime and would like to try and fill the hole as best I can to make paying for what I need to pay for easier in the coming days/weeks.

With that said, commissions are still open for anyone who is interested in helping me.

Edit

Good news: Since I've been giving the refunds, I've discovered that Paypal refunds its own fees. Since I haven't used Paypal for a long time, I didn't remember this and miscalculated how much I spent giving everyone refunds.

This is good because it means that my goal isn't quite as high. The goal is around $600 total now, sans Paypal fees. So now the goal should be much easier to reach!

Read more below.

Cancellation

For those of you who are visiting from the campaign page, the campaign has now been cancelled. If you would like to stop watching me, that's fine.

Thank you to everyone who has given so generously. I will never forget this and I only hope I will be able to rally the support I need, should I ever need it.

I've decided to open commissions to try and raise back the money that I've spent on giving refunds... While my goal is around $900, I know that with my art style, I probably won't see that kind of money any time soon.

I would like to personally thank everyone who has offered their art in support of the campaign. Please be aware that I have reviewed all of the notes and comments pertaining to the offers. I have not responded yet because I've been busy. However, don't worry! I will be getting back to everyone as soon as possible!

All I can ask of artists offering art in the meantime is to try and draw something for Karine. If it's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic themed then don't hesitate to join the pony groups and add your images. Be sure to include a link to Karine's campaign in the artist comment box! Don't hesitate to find areas with lots of traffic to promote your stuff! Of course, remember! You don't want to spam groups either.

As for the donators, I would like to thank everyone who has helped us breach the $400 mark. We're still raising less than 10% of what we need daily to make our goal however, I am confident that we'll find the support we need before the campaign is over! For anyone who is able to spread the word, please don't hesitate! Word of mouth is a powerful thing!

Things You Can Do

:bulletblack: Spread this link on any social networking site you frequent: www.indiegogo.com/helpkarine

:bulletblack: Draw pictures for Karine, showing your support. If they are themed and there is a group centred around the theme, don't hesitate to include a link to the campaign in your description. Remember not to spam!

Note: If you aren't sure what to do with images for Karine, please note me and I will be happy to see what I can do to help promote the images and her campaign!

Long-Term Artists

I'm still looking for people willing to lend their art at the end of the campaign (for the people who donated). If we can get together enough people who are willing to offer their art in exchange for donations, we can bring this campaign much closer to success!

In the event that this campaign doesn't reach its intended goal, we'll be able to hold a second one with far more support! I have faith that we can take this far and help our dear friend in her time of need!

Thank you all.

Cheers,

Tinker Jet (Campaign Host)

Hello any and all of those who have come to my page from :iconsahtori-kamaya:'s.

In case you weren't already aware, I'm helping to raise money for her chemotherapy. The current goal is $30,000. You may find the campaign page here: www.indiegogo.com/helpkarine

If you can't give money, that's alright. We'd also like to welcome artists who would give their art/provide commissions for the cause. If you can't do that either then help spread the word!

Here's to a successful campaign!

Hello any and all of those who have come to my page from :iconsahtori-kamaya:'s.

I would like to start by welcoming you and giving you a brief overview of the plan.

I have offered to help :iconsahtori-kamaya: by hosting a fundraiser on Indiegogo. The current goal is $30,000 to help cover her debt, help her proceed with chemotherapy and to cover a few neat trinkets for anyone who contributes. (We hope to raise more than $30,000 but everything has to start somewhere!)

What we need - aside from money - are supporters. What are supporters? Well, they're people who do one of three things: give money, offer art (if they can't donate) as 'prizes' for people who donate in certain brackets (it's great practice) or spread the word and try to rally OTHER supporters.

Just tonight, I passed my plans (and layout) onto :iconsahtori-kamaya: for her approval. I will be handling everything under her supervision. If all goes according to plan then she can have the money by late October/early November.

Here's to a successful campaign!

HELP A FELLOW DEVIANT

I've got two causes and you get to help, all while naming your own price!

CAUSE #1.

:iconsahtori-kamaya: has cancer and can't afford chemotherapy. If you'd like to donate directly, please click here: www.goddess-ofthe-night.com/do…

CAUSE #2.

:iconkiifayce:'s dog, Joey has pneumonia. They need to raise money to help him! See details here: kiifayce.deviantart.com/art/HE…

COMMISSION INFORMATION

I'll be taking both cash and point commissions. Cash will go toward causes and points will go toward either promoting :iconthe-toad-patrol-club: to a Super Group or making my account a Premium Member. (So that I can hopefully continue to spread the word about good causes.)

PAYMENT DETAILS

I prefer cash but I will also be accepting points commissions.

Anything under $5.00 (400 :points:) will get you a sketch.

Examples of my sketches:

tinker-jet.deviantart.com/art/…

tinker-jet.deviantart.com/art/…

tinker-jet.deviantart.com/art/…

tinker-jet.deviantart.com/art/…

Note me for my Paypal e-mail!

RULES

- No nudity. Perverted nonsense will not be tolerated.

- I will do blood... but please... no asking me to do excessive amounts of gore. If your character is leaking innards then chances are, I will turn down the project.

- No hate speech. I don't mind a bit of swearing but absolute bigotry will be turned down.

FAQ

HELP A FELLOW DEVIANT

:iconawkwaard: is no longer taking donations for the kitten because Paypal tried to freeze her account. D=

So instead, I'd like to draw attention to another DA user who needs help.

:iconsahtori-kamaya: has cancer and can't afford chemotherapy. She is now taking donations.

If you'd like to donate directly, please do it here: www.goddess-ofthe-night.com/do…

If not then please keep reading.

COMMISSION INFORMATION

I want to see if I can raise a total of $120.00 by the end of the year from commissions alone. That means raising $52.50 more.

That'll mean taking on either 11 more commissions for $5.00 or 21 more commissions for $2.50.

I will (hopefully) be putting aside $29.68 (or 2,396 :points:) for a premium membership OR $61.44 (4,796 :points:) so I can turn :iconthe-toad-patrol-club: into a Super Group. (Depending on how well my campaign goes. If I make an over-abundance of money then count on some mass hoarding.)

However, all other money will be donated to :iconsahtori-kamaya:.

PAYMENT DETAILS

I prefer cash but since nothing is particularly urgent right now (with no deadlines to meet), I will also be accepting points commissions.

$2.50 per sketch. Add $2.50 for each character you want added or for each new sketch. ($2.50 = 200 :points:)

HELP A KITTY

I would like to draw everyone's attention to this cat who needs help!

fav.me/d52127o (Its story is in the description.)

:iconawkwaard: has been working very hard, trying to help this poor kitten and is now offering commissions for $15.00 and under to raise funds to help it! Please message them for more details.

MY EFFORTS SO FAR

What about on my end, you might ask? Well, I'll also be offering commissions for various causes.

From all of the charities that I've helped since February, I've raised $67.50 in total from commissions. That doesn't sound like much... but I managed to help people reach their goals and I couldn't be more proud!

From these commissions, $7.50 went to St. Baldrick's (for Cancer research) and $60.00 went to the Purina Walk (for the training of Service Animals in Canada).

I want to see if I can raise a total of $120.00 by the end of the year from commissions alone. That means raising $52.50 more.

Since I'm working full time and am very stressed in general, you may have to wait a number of months for me to finally have some time to get around to everyone. You don't need to worry though. I keep a very organized queue.

Onto the information.

Donations of $2.50 or more will get you a sketch. All sketches are scanned in 300 DPI and can be darkened in Photoshop. Some examples of my sketches can be found here:

Donations of $5.00 or more will get you a coloured image. Unfortunately, I am entirely inept when it comes to backgrounds so any backgrounds that you'd want included would be very, VERY simple. Some examples of my coloured work can be found here:

Note that the $2.50 and the $5.00 commissions are for one character each.

If you donate $5.00 and want two SKETCHED characters, please specify.

$10.00 will either get you four sketched characters or two coloured ones.

And so forth. Only rules? No nudity, excessive violence or vulgarity.


- PAYMENT DETAILS -

Since the girl running the service animal charity is blind and it's a process of 'a friend of a friend of a friend...' to get in touch with her, I must ask that anyone wanting art, make their payments directly to me.

Please note me to ask for my Paypal e-mail.



If you want art in exchange for donating, please message me. I accept Paypal payments and any money that you give me will go straight to her charity. If you want the donations made under your name, be sure to specify otherwise it will either be posted under :icontaksart:'s name or Anonymous.

Speaking of :icontaksart:, she is also offering commissions. See here: fav.me/d4xdihj



With all of that out of the way, I'd like to give three special mentions in this journal entry.

LIST OF ART I OWE IN ORDER

For the record, people won't be added to the queue until I receive payment. People who do pay but don't know what they want at the time of commissioning will be pushed down the queue. I will only be completing commissions as I receive descriptions. Since I intend to raise a lot of money and keep a long list, don't expect your art right away.

1. Osprey (Sketch completed. Due to be coloured.)
