paynesgrey: Avatar - DRAW HARDER! // please tell me if you made this (draw)
I haven't done commissions in FOREVER, but I'm kind of desperate at the moment. I have some bills coming up and groceries are needed, as well as savings for the upcoming arrival of the baby, and instead of just asking for money, I prefer to give something for them. The Gods gave me an art talent after all, so...

Keep in mind, I AM seven months pregnant, so soon I won't be able to do much but sit on my butt anyway, so I figured this was a good time.

Things I will be able to do:

Graphic design work (1-2 iterations):
- Wallpapers ($3) computer size and lower size
- Banners ($3) No more than 300x400 pixels
- Manips ($5) all sizes
- Book Covers for indie books ($10) - if I need to use my stock imagery account this might include the cost of the stock photo too.
- Logos, icons, other graphics, custom graphics - we can discuss ($3 - $10)

Digital art, fandom or original:

- Pastel, Marker or Colored Pencils 8x10 ($25)
- Digital, Photoshop or Illustrator or Sketchbook 8x10 ($30)
- Black and White ink ($15)
- Coloring Book page ($10)

Pet Portraits:

- Ink ($20)
- Pastel or Colored Pencil ($25)
- Digital, Photoshop ($35)

Here are my portfolios to see my work:

Deviantart

I've done several big bangs, banners, and original award banners for lots of fandom communities. I've got about 15 years of design experience. Most of my professional work is graphic design, prototyping and web design. Painting and drawing is mostly a hobby at this point but I've done it since I could hold a pencil.
I will give a sample sketch to show you before you pay once we discuss subject matter and terms.

Keep in mind that I will not ask for payment until after the work is complete. I will be using Paypal only. I would feel super guilty if I got paid even a portion and could not deliver.

Please share if you can! Thanks!

PS: Another thing that would help out if you haven't bought my book Unbridled. It's at Amazon.
Even though I don't get royalties until two months later, it would help later.
The e-book is $2.99 and the physical copy is $11.99. If you would like a physical copy signed by me, I can send you one for $10.

Thank you very much everyone!

I still need to get enough to cover my insurance from the GoFundMe Campaign I have rolling currently.

GoFundMe: Emergency Funds Campaign

I'm stepping up the signal boost because it can take a few days for the funds to process to my bank, which puts a bit of a time limit on me. Hubby and I have jobs, but it will take a bit before we get paid and all of our pay has to go to rent. To say we are desperate is rather an understatement, but we're still holding out hope that it will get better and we can make it through the beginning of this month.

If you can, please boost the signal. You have all done so, so much for us - and though I hate to ask, I would be grateful if you could do so again. Any platform is fine, as long as it gets out there.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. For helping us in the past. For everything you do here and now. For giving us support, good advice, kindness and love. Thank you...

Love~

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon at Tarot Readings for Sale...
Once more, for any and all who may be interested, I'm offering Tarot readings at a price that is slightly higher than a street vendor but way less than your average 1-800 number or Tarot.com reading. This would help get me out of a bind - and maybe make you feel a touch better about the future ahead (if not help you plan better for it)!

Prices are thusly:

Average Reading (Ques., Atmosphere, Past, Present, Possible & Probable Future): $15 USD

Full Reading (Q, A, Past, Pres., Poss., Prob., 2 Hopes/Fears, Family Opin., Final Outcome): $25 USD



Traditionally my 'usual reading' is the Full Reading, but I realise not everyone will want that, so I have set the Readings and prices accordingly. As always, if you wish to have a reading done, feel free to PM me and I will get it set up for you. We can do it via email, Skype or over the phone, whichever makes you more comfortable.

But even if you cannot do this at this time, I would really appreciate it if you would spread the word. There may be a few people out there who are interested - and I would wholly welcome their help. And look! They get something fun and (hopefully) practical in return!

Any way you can assist is appreciated, guise. And thank you (always, always) for listening!

[livejournal.com profile] heroes_exchange is doing a holiday exchange and they need more participants!


I have never done [livejournal.com profile] heroes_exchange, but from what I've seen, it's always been really successful and a lot of good fic comes out of it. Plus, [livejournal.com profile] boombangbing is a reliable mod, so I suggest you sign up if you're still interested in Heroes.

I just finished a big bang for Heroes, plus I'm doing NaNoWriMo this month, so you know I must be mad for signing up. The thing is...I still love Heroes and I want to see the fandom continue.

Sign-ups end today, so think fast, but fics aren't due until January 8th, and the minimum word count is 1,000, so it's pretty manageable.

So yay! I'm kinda curious to see how this goes. :D

[livejournal.com profile] iy_wiltedrose - A Fanfiction Challenge Community dedicated to Kikyou, from Inuyasha.

If anyone on my flist is a Kikyou lover, it looks like this comm could use some active members. I'm actually very excited about this. It could help me finish up my [livejournal.com profile] 30shards claim as well as get me back into a quiet fandom.

Also, I saw some preview clips for Heroes Season 3 with the actors and the plot bunnies are stirring. I can't wait for the new season. I suppose I better write my pre-Season 3 fics before they become AU on me. We'll see. :-)

I watched Iron Man again tonight. Maybe some fic soon? Possibly.

EDIT: Also, [livejournal.com profile] inuyasha_lims is looking for some more sign ups. They seem pretty desperate. I know I don't have time to make icons and I signed up! So you can too. Hopefully... PLEASE??
