Emergency Discount Commission Post

A’ight, I’m a lot more strapped for cash than I’m even vaguely comfortable with, so I’m slashing prices and opening 10 commission slots.  I’m offering two different types: inked/cel shaded and painted pieces.  Below are listed the prices and some examples to give you an idea of what to expect:

Inked/Cell Shaded—$25 (plus $10/additional character)

Painted—$35 (plus $15/additional character)

All commissions are full-body, unless otherwise specified. 

I do take NSFW commissions as well so if that interests you, please check the post on my NSFW art blog.  

I will gladly draw any and all characters (e.g. monster, anthro, mecha, etc.), but please provide ample reference by way of images or detailed description if necessary.  Backgrounds and scenery may be added for additional charge.

If you wish to commission me, my email as well as my paypal are queuethorn@gmail.com.  Payment must be received in full before I start the piece, but please do not send payment until I’ve sent you a confirmation email.

Thank you so much for your interest and as always, reblogs are greatly appreciated!

Hi guys! I’ve decided to give Patreon a try in the hopes that it will help me achieve a more stable financial situation that will enable me to more consistently produce art for you all to stare at, obtain, and own for yourselves!

Right now, I devote most of my time to commissions, and while I definitely enjoy having an audience that enables me to support myself through my work, it often leaves me unable to pursue my own personal projects and goals for my art and without the time I need to further hone my skills and teach myself new things!

Being able to support myself through Patreon would not only let me create more work for all of you, but would allow me to create better and more complex pieces as I teach myself new skills.

I’m hoping to offer a range of exclusive content to those who choose to support me, so please take a look at the rewards listed on my Patreon Page and decide if there is anything that suits your fancy!


This does not mean that all of my art will be Patreon-exclusive now! It simply means that patrons will have access to some things early, and other things like sketchbook dumps and art raffles exclusively, as well as access to some high-resolution files for personal use.

If anything, any support I receive via Patreon should make it much easier for me to post MORE art here for everyone. 

Thank you!

Discworld

I really need to read/watch the Discworld stuff.

Discworld is a lot more important than people give it credit.

I keep saying it, and I’m gonna KEEP saying it

READ. DISCWORLD.

GESTURES WILDLY

This is one of my favorite exchanges in all of Pratchett’s works, and that’s saying something.

Seriously. Read Discworld.

You really need to read Discworld.

COMMISSIONS!

Get in on this, you nerds!

So.

A friend of a friend pretty much read through the entirety of Lavender in close to a single sitting, and I remain absolutely thrilled about that fact, because like, I don’t know them! If anybody was gonna be like ‘eh, it’s kinda crap’ > quietly never mentions it ever again….. that was the opportunity. Instead, most of it down in a day. I can’t even begin to fully encompass how pleased that makes me, because what author doesn’t want to make a book you can’t put down?

I can’t wait to actually release this thing into the wild and thrust it into all of your perplexed, grubby hands.

skepticarcher:

Happy birthday to swapcats! I made you some ladies. 

Get hype for this lady’s books, guys. >:]

Woah.

Commission for ourfaeriesarediffering of swapcat’s lovely dinguses!

My friends are absolute monsters. Please fullview this and see how disgustingly cute it is.
(Commander Akela, taking a break from Important Commanderly duties, and apparently in need of little more than a frilly pink apron. Featuring Sen, everyone’s favourite one-horned pane.)

Once more, Jeff dropkicks an open sportsgoal. A horse rears up. An eagle shrieks. A muscle car sheds a tear.  An art is emblazoned upon the cosmos, imploring all to gaze. Behold.
"I am thinking you will soon see why no others are being foolish enough to call my baking skills into question. You will be humbled, yes, but ah! I am merciful in making defeat the finest thing you are tasting for months."

A commission of Aria for Sophie!! 

Thank you for your patience!

Look at this cute nerd! I can never have enough art of Aria. I tried once, but when the results of the experiments came in, it revealed that in fact, what was required was more Aria. Thank you for the lovely picture! :)

Would we accept “if you don’t want to get shot, just do what the EPA regulator tells you”? Would we yield to “if you don’t want your kid tased, do what the Deputy Superintendent of Education tells you”? Would we accept “if you don’t want to get tear gassed, just do what your Congressman tells you?” No. Our culture of individualism and liberty would not permit it. Yet somehow, through generations of law-and-order rhetoric and near-deification of law enforcement, we have convinced ourselves that cops are different, and that it is perfectly acceptable for them to be able to order us about, at their discretion, on pain of violence.

It’s not acceptable. It is servile and grotesque.

Sunil Dutta Tells It Like It Is About American Policing | Popehat (via brutereason)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2014/08/19/im-a-cop-if-you-dont-want-to-get-hurt-dont-challenge-me/

"Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?”

I think it’s important to note another of Sunil Dutta’s articles.

swapcats:

So! I finished writing my books. All three of ‘em. It’s been a huge undertaking and I’ve put as much time as I have love into them. I’m feeling all kinds of things right now, but that’s not what I want to talk about.

I want to take a moment to thank all the people who’ve supported me along the way. Who’ve listened to me blab about the characters endlessly, who’ve read the books and helped me figure out what does and doesn’t work. The people who’ve shared their headcanons with me and drawn me art, the people who’ve pointed out typos and just given me so much encouragement.

I honestly wouldn’t have got this far without all of you, and it certainly wouldn’t be a story this dear to my heart.

So in no particular order, all my thanks to: skepticarcher, ourfaeriesarediffering, dem-hips, qthorn, tchbee, tentacle, fluffymurellow, fmorgana, sturmschwinge, sassygaykorra, paschblue, sakuraaas, gryfeathr, zellk, lionsenpai, Grace, and I really, really feel like I’m forgetting people because I’m exhausted from writing and also starving, but I really appreciate you all! 

Go. Consume the foods. Feast in celebration of your achievement! Sound the great horn of buch-duniad and let all give a mighty cheer!
