My commission list is clear and I am ready for some spoopy Halloween time!! For the first year ever I am gonna participate in the Inktober/Drawtober event! I'll be drawing traditionally on ACEO cards, which I plan to put up for sale after the event. Hope you're as excited as I am! <3
Back from vacation and jumping headfirst into work! Being out of town for a week really got me itching to draw!
As an addendum to my previous journal, it seems I messed up a few of my dates and times. Turns out we left much sooner in the week than I thought we were going to and obviously, I didn't get to finish commissions before then. But rest assured I'm plugging away :)
Hey all! Sorry for slight delay with commissions, I had hoped to have them all done by the end of July but my plans were shifted around as I recently helped my roommates move out into their own apartment! This has left the house in a state of.. disarray to put it nicely, and things (including my work station) are being moved around as the house is being cleaned, renovated, and refurnished. No telling how long this process will take, but I will be going on a small vacation for my anniversary around the 11th of August, so I will try very hard to get commissions done before then!
Thank you for sticking with me!
I've been having a lot of fun over at ArtFight drawing some character headshots, and it turns out they work GREAT for icons! So now I'm happy to offer headshots in a similar style as a new icon commission category, which will be available the next time slots open :D
Whew, finally back home! I've got my Waiting List all updated and will be sending out emails to my commissioners very shortly. Thank you all for making our first time at BLFC awesome!
That's right, I'll be attending BLCF in Reno, Nevada at the beginning of June! I know, you never thought you'd see those words, right? :') It's been something like two years since I last took general commissions. If you'll be hanging out in Reno, be sure to come by my booth and say hi! I'll be there sharing a table with my friend and roommate, Kittygomou.
Oh no another year gone by! Starting off 2017 with some Aywas pets and finishing off what's left of my holiday auctions. Might do some sketch commissions afterwards or might just take a break from Aywas in general to catch up with some of my other contract work I've been neglecting. Hope you all had a safe and fun holiday/New Years <3
And with that, my commission queue is empty! I'll be taking this time to catch up on my other to-do lists and contract work before deciding how/when to open up general commissions again. I've been putting together a convention schedule for the next year and a half, so look forward to that!
Also, you can now follow me on Instagram @KiRAWRart :D
So there's just a FEW stragglers left on my commission list from my 2015 round. Nearly all commissions were finished by March, but a few people I had yet to hear back from or even get in contact with. Since I live a completionist lifestyle, I wanted to make sure I could get everyone taken care of on my current list before moving on. I'm happy to say that I have officially made contact with all remaining commissioners and if communication keeps up, their orders should be done in as little as a week!
This will not immediately open the door for my commissions, but it'll certainly help clear the way. I have not yet decided what exactly I want to do once I get my schedule completely clear, but most likely I will be taking some time for myself - something I haven't been able to do in ages!
I'm sorry to keep putting new commission orders off like this, you're all so wonderfully patient with me and I greatly appreciate it of course, but there are just too many dang things I want to do and not enough hours in the day to do them! Plus the fact that I need to maintain some semblance of regular income makes it hard to take time for myself.
Most likely I'll be focusing on Aywas commissions before any others, since they're incredibly fun and not nearly as demanding on my time or mind as my other work tends to be.
Added a few new categories to my FAQ page highlighting what is okay and what is not okay to do with commissioned artwork! :) So be sure to give that a read-through. Also updating a few of my commission prices, so if it's been a while since you browsed the available categories, please familiarize yourself with my new rates! ouo Thanks~
