project updates n commissions

Mon Dec 3, 2012, 10:28 PM
Hello everyone! I hope things are going well for you all!

Firstly I would like to adress :iconcourageartbook: ! The deadline for pages is THIS SATURDAY! I'm hoping to get preoders set up as soon as TOMORROW! The pages and WIPs I've seen so far are GORGEOUS and I cannot wait to see this book complete. I'm trying to plan so that I can guarantee orders up until a certain date before Christmas, so this might make great gifts if you know anyone who loves art!
Also, the digital art class I've been teaching is finishing tomorrow night after our class. All of the students have learned so much about Paint Tool SAI and Wacom Bamboo Splashes! They all bought the tablets back besides one student so far who is trying to get the funds to do so (if they didn't already have their own tablet for the class of course!)
I really want to thank EVERYONE who helped make this possible! You guys have filled me with so much joy. I am so incredibly impressed with humanity.
Specifically, I would like to thank :icondanidrastic: for helping me plan things for the book AND the class as well as selling adoptables to help with the cost AND contributing a page to the book herself, ALL WHILE attending college and keeping up with her job. You seriously rock and inspire me more and more every day.
I would like to thank :iconmaiyunbby: for helping me in so many ways I couldn't even possibly explain it all... You encourage me and you give me GREAT advice and you even bought adoptables whenever you could to help. Your honesty and beautiful heart make me smile.
THANK YOU :iconraineseryn: so much! You made gorgeous adoptables to sell to help with the project as well, and also contributed your own beautiful page to the book despite being so so so super busy with all your commissions! You're funny and sweet and I love talking with you!
Also thank you to :icontheelvishdevil: who has bought more adoptables from me than anyone else, AND commissioned me, and is just a sweetheart in general! I love talking with you, and I'm so glad you're feeling better.

Honestly I could go on and on and on forever, so honestly, REALLY, THANK YOU ALL SO SO SO MUCH, even if all you were able to do was leave a positive comment, it really has meant the world to me.

In other news, I've been applying to colleges! It's crazy and fun and I'm so excited. AND JUST AS IMPORTANTLY...THE HOBBIT COMES OUT SO SO SOON! I bought my ticket the first day they were available aaah u wu I've never skipped a day or even class in my entire life, so I told my dad and even some of my teachers, sorry, I'm going to skip to go stand in line all day for the premier LOL ! I'm so excited, it's going to be so beautiful and I'm going to cry everywhere and flood the theatre on accident... I also got permission to wear my cloak! YAY!

And lastly, it's come to my attention that all my commission journals are pretty outdated, so if in doubt, LOOK HERE FOR CURRENT COMMISSION INFORMATION! :0)

jeeez 40?! O___O Are they nuts, LOL. I'm glad you found a better place. ;w; I'm going to make a journal feature once I get some adoptables done, LOL. So maybe I can send some buyers your way. >w<

LOL YEAH ; 3; almost every place was like $25-35 just for the books themselves, plus they ship them to me THEN I ship them out to other people... . ~. ; it was just going to be too much money, especially because our book is pretty small compared to others

Jeeez D: that seems like a lot of hassle. I think the price you have now is excellent. I bet a lot more people will buy it since it's so reasonable. >w<

I'm so sorry, Eddy. Damn. So sorry.

You can so do it! :0))
Don't even worry about it ! Just give it your best! Once you get started and work on it, it just goes by so fast, I'm sure you can make it! I know someone who just started last night and got so far in the hours they put in last night, and I personally only have part of a sketch, but will be putting some hours in tonight and probably every day until the deadline LOL
Just go for it! :0) YOU CAN DO IT !
