A sweet seeming girl who does pretty work, its hard to not want to help her when she posts her 'Help, I need money, commission me." posts. However, she seems to have a large problem finishing them and staying in communication with her commisioners. Her money problems are never solved. Despite being unemployed for the better part of the year, next to nothing has come out of her artwise. Only appologies for being slow and more requests for people to commission her.

I point out her latest journal on June 22, 2010. It is copied below in case it gets removed.

While one can appreciate her honesty to a certain level here...

She lists no less then 40 commissions in her queue, most of which have been sitting there for years. And admits she has more that she owes to people not posted on that list. And still she opens slots for nine more people to give her money... For the experience of waiting anywhere from months to years on that list. Many people have assumed she simply stopped being involved in the fandom, but she's constantly commenting on FA. I think she answers the actual question herself on one of her pictures "I'm just busy and lazy."

At her current rate of finishing artwork, 2 pieces every five months, we should expect to see this list finished sometime in her lifetime, but probably not mine. :)~

So this is an Artist Beware. Consider your money a donation to support her lifestyle. You might one day get a surprise art piece in return from her, but this will be years after its no longer relevant.

Anonymously posted in the hopes that one day I can get my art from this person.

<lj-cut text="A copy of the Journal Entry">

A small sale since I won't be at AC this year-- limited slots.

To inquire, EMAIL me (address at bottom of journal) with decent references (attached or linked, or a precise description if necessary).

There are certain subjects that I don't touch, and various things that I may feel I'm not good at... so you are welcome to ask, but please understand that I reserve the right to choose which commissions to take. Elaborate characters (wings, extra body parts, detailed patterns, etc.) may cost a little more, at my discretion. Payment will be due when I approve your request, and can be made by paypal. If you need the items completed and/or mailed by a certain date, please include that in the email. Prices -include- regular shipping in the US, add $5 for priority mail, or contact me for rates to other countries.

3x4" traditional full-color badges - $30
Something along the lines of these samples:


8.5x11" sketches - $20


2.5x3.5" ACEO/Art Cards (color) - $20
These will look a lot like the badges, but will not have names, and will probably involve looser poses. I need to make some samples.


I might open up more slots later, or I might not. I might delete some or all open slots if I feel overwhelmed. I'm still working on other stuff that I owe too. I'm mostly curious about demand, and wanted to be able to offer a couple of each thing.

Other uploads/updates are on the way.

If you're waiting on commission progress from me, the info in my journal footer (below) is always up-to-date, and I'll definitely contact you individually as I have news or questions. You're always welcome to email me if you have concerns.

Updated to include everything I can think of, in the interest of full disclosure! (Be warned, I might take awhile to finish things.) Italics indicate what is most recently updated.
