Commissions

I am currently NOT taking commissions!

If you are interested in getting a custom piece of artwork feel free to message me at any time. I promise I'll get back to your notes as soon as possible, but if I'm a little slow please don't take it as a cold shoulder. Now for a little FAQ.

Q. How much do your commissions cost?

:bulletred: Most commissions will cost $50.

Q. How do you want to be payed?

:bulletred: In money of course! :XD: But seriously, I work only through PayPal and would like payment up front. I am willing to split it into two installments if asked up front.

Q. Do you do anything in color and does it cost more?

:bulletred: I am willing to do colored pieces but if it calls for intricate coloring I may have to drop the commission. Any tattoo/tribal design with color WILL cost more depending on the difficulty.

Q. Do you do commission with your Alphabet Photography or custom Mighty Muggs?

:bulletred: I do! =D Please PM me for more information

Q. How long does a commission take?

:bulletred: It all depends. Most of the time I can crank out a tattoo piece in about two days, but if I have class or a heavy work load it might take a little longer. See, I work in stages. I can get the rough draft sketched but the time from start to finished product is about a week to two weeks, give or take.

Q. Do you trade art as payment?

:bulletred: Usually not. Not to come across concieted, but unless you've got some pretty kickass art, or something of interest to me, I'd rather just have green in my pocket at the end of the day.

If I haven't answered any questions you have with this little Q&A please feel free to message me and ask. I won't bite you to hard ;)

Watchers

Visitors

Hello my friends and watchers! It's been a while since I uploaded a new journal, so I thought I'd let you all know that I still exist outside my frequent fiction postings and the sporadic art posts. Things have been a little crazy and kinda emotional for me as of late; a lot of personal issues being brought to the surface and worked out. I won't bore anyone with the details, but things are looking up, hopefully. Anyway, this journal is really for my readers, but those who watch for my art can definitely participate!

As many of you may know, I've been writing Frozen fictions since early December, and I am currently working on my sequel to 'Dagger in the Daylight', 'For the First Time in Never'. This story has pretty much taken over my life (I can't write any of my personal work until I get this thing done or it'll kill me in my sleep!). I've gotten a lot of wonderful feedback from those who've chosen to read my work along with a lot of questions, but these are the most prevalent. So I thought I'd answer them publicly.

Question #1
Q. Oh my god, how's this going to end?! Please tell me!
A. Obviously, I'm not going to spoil the ending for anyone, so stop asking that particular question! :XD:

Question #2
Q. I love your work, is it alright to do fanart?
A. FUCKING YES IT'S ALRIGHT! Draw away my lovelies! I'd love to see what you all come up with.

Now that that's out of the way, onto the point of this post. I've come to the realization that I am, indeed, a horrible tease, and to demonstrate how evil I can be, I'm going to start dropping what I've affectionately come to call "Dustings" (snow puns for everyone!) on my tumblr page. They will be snippets from chapters of my fiction I'm currently working on, giving you, my wonderful readers, little teasers to tithe you over until I can finally post something substantial. As my stories (mainly For the First Time in Never and a few I'm working on in the background) progress, I want to take more time ironing out the details and being thorough with the plot. But this is also a chance for me to get to know you all! So come join me in the madness of tumblr and nerd with me over Frozen and other fandoms.

I am currently NOT taking commissions.

If you are interested in getting a custom piece of artwork feel free to message me at any time. I promise I'll get back to your notes as soon as possible, but if I'm a little slow please don't take it as a cold shoulder. Now for a little FAQ.

Q. Is any of your art free for the taking?

:bulletred: NO! None of my art is free to just walk off with. I put a lot of effort into my designs and the only reason I'm here on DA is to get my name out into the world. That doesn't mean people can take my work and paint it onto their skin without permission or paying first. I'm sorry, but that's the way of it.

Q. How much do your commissions cost?

:bulletred: Most commissions will cost $50.

Q. How do you want to be payed?

:bulletred: In money of course! :XD: But seriously, I work only through PayPal and would like payment up front. I am willing to split it into two installments if asked up front.

:bulletred: I am willing to do colored pieces but if it calls for intricate coloring I may have to drop the commission. Any tattoo/tribal design with color WILL cost more depending on the difficulty.

Q. Do you do commission with your Alphabet Photography or custom Mighty Muggs?

:bulletred: I do! =D Please PM me for more information

Q. Do you do custom names and words in Gallifreyan circle script?

:bulletred: I do indeed. If you are interested in a custom circle script, message me and I'll explain how it works and what you should expect to find. I will also translate your name or word under the script or under each letter depending on what you want.

Q. How long does a commission take?

:bulletred: It all depends. Most of the time I can crank out a tattoo piece in about two days, but if I have class or a heavy work load it might take a little longer. See, I work in stages. I can get the rough draft sketched but the time from start to finished product is about a week to two weeks, give or take.
