~✿ Life Update ✿~

SOOOooo - My mother and sister came to visit and I got a nose piercing for my younger sister as a birthday present. It was lovely spending time with her before her birthday~ <3 But sadly straight after the visit I got a cold, and determinedly I wanted to defeat it quickly before it got worse in this cold winter x.x;

That is why I suddenly disappeared from making arts or doing streams, but I'm quite recovered so I can get back to the commission art schedule wooo! :D So from this week onward - keep an eye out! xD

~✿ Commission Update ✿~

MY COMMISSION ToS and ETC. I updated this a bit! -->…

~♥ PWYW Livestreams ♥~

OKAY SO - you know PWYW (pay what you want) streams? Yeah I'll be doing them randomly from time to time. So just check my FA or other social media sites for all that stuff!

Also here is a reminders of what 'PWYW' streams are:

And so I thought to also add, what is PWYW? Well it stands for 'pay-what-you-want' - which is where you pay me via Paypal, and get a sketch of some sort. How much you pay will equal the quality you get. However - I do have a quality cap at $30+. I've done one of those $30+ so far, and it came out looking great! :D So for me, I prefer being told the amount first, then I can tell you what you can get, and then we talk out details. Woot! So look out for when I post links to the streams! xP

AAAAAND just to comfort my art traders and one prize art person: Between every commission I will finish a trade/prize art. That is my rule. I will get it done for sure! I have at least finished one owing xD

~✿ Merchandise Update ✿~


I can do t-shirts, keyrings, fridge magnets (laminated with magnet stuck on kind), con badges and posters. All I have to do is find a way to make button badges and stickers and I'm all good to go :3 

SOOO~ Did you know you can get anything in my galleries as an A3 physical poster, a t-shirt, a keyring etc.? On like ultra awesome paper in a secure tube ready to go to any part of the world? WELL YES YOU CAN :D

So far the track record has been awesome for people who already ordered from me! All postage arrived safely and securely, and within a reasonable time. 

I make the mailing tubes at home so it's my personal 'homemade' sort of thing I'm doing. I wanna keep these things as local and in my control as possible - in order to make sure it gets to the customer! :D

Tell me if you're interested - and I can quote prices ;P

Also my website is gonna be updated with a store - so look out for that :D

I knows some of you want my goods! herpaderp

Hey gorgeous lassie! I was thinking of you for a bit just a little while! I wonder about how well are you! Did I have you on facebook?................. I'm stuck up in my life in the same place and same environment for the past six months too long now and haven't a clue thinking how to be an escape artist for some time... Do you make money by doing this? I want to be inspired by you cuz I'm only a beginner, idk what to do with my life, would you help?

Hello there, I am honoured to be in someone else's thoughts but do know that sounded a little creepy to read in the morning ^^;
I am doing pretty well though, thank you for asking, and I don't know if I've seen you on facebook. If you'd like to add me, my FB
is taala.ruhun.

I'm sorry you feel so stuck, but using drawing as a means of distraction from your environment is a good idea! ^^
I make a very small amount of money off my art, since it is based purely on commission work. Sometimes I try to
sell at conventions as well. I'm happy you think of me as an insipiration creatively so, I'll offer some art advice.

1. Practice drawing everyday, doesn't matter if it's doodles or full on or even if it comes out bad, just keep drawing.
2. Learn to draw from still life, I took life drawing classes for some time (and plan to again) because it really helped me
understand more how objects work from life to paper.
3. Use plenty of references, sometimes I even draw over a pose but then correct and shape it so it doesn't look awkward.
It's all about understanding and learning from a reference, not merely copying it.
4. Be patient, being a good artist doesn't take overnight, it takes years and years...and even then a professional artist will say 'drawing is difficult'.
5. Enjoy drawing art! This is the most important one because if you love your own art, chances are other people will too.

That is the best pieces of advice I have ever typed. Some of that I need to even remember myself sometimes ^^;
So I hope that has given you a starting point to be an artist :D

I've read and then copied your notes down. I'll have a ponder about ways I can push myself further from my current artistic or creative drawing skills... Thank you :) my experiences in living a life can be hard for me also... With lots of weaknesses could be a serious problem for me that became a bad burden so that I might be depressed :( how to take heart and pick oneself up in resilient strength when one falls down and lost faith or grace? There are things in real life you don't see are obstacles that stops you from having this positive feeling to pick up yourself to do a thing you love doing the most again in any work etc... So yeah.
