UPDATE: I am poor. I have no money, so I won't be attending the funeral. It's sad, but I'll get over it. I would however, like to plan to visit my grandmother sometime next year. She is, after all, alone now. No relatives live with her, and while she is a good 20 years younger than my grandfather, I'm pretty sure she doesn't have anyone living with her, and after my grandfather's funeral, they will be preoccupied with their own lives. My family does do a good job of taking care of eachother, but I don't live on the West Coast, so I'm going to try and visit her during my semester off.
Now, as mentioned above, I am poor. SO. I'll be doing commissions to try and raise money so I can make the trip next year (probably middle of Janurary sometime, and hopefully I will be getting a job to add to the coffers). I've approximated that the trip (the plane ride there and back, plus the bus ride down to Salt Lake City is going to be about $700. So here's how commissions will be set up:
Add color: +$5 (fully rendered, with a gradient background)
Here are some examples of what the commissions will look like:
I do have two styles of drawing, so I will ask for specifications of what you want.
I'd say that's more than fair. I take payment through paypal to the address Ftepainting @ yahoo . com (without the spaces, if you please)
If you pity me enough to tell me that you wish you could commission me but can't, do me a solid and let others know, please. Social networking only goes so far by myself.
My work in the 100 Themes Boot Camp will not stop, nor will my attempts at getting pages done for my comic. But we are getting the carpet at our apartment replaced and I am still looking for a job, so I may not be as active on DA. I will be on at least once a day to check messages (I watch too many people for my own good) so I won't be completely gone.
Anyway, thanks for all of your kind words and heartfelt feelings. They mean so much to me.
