Cave of Muse: a two- part auction


Welcome ~ This is a special auction where I am offering a style that I have reserved only for close friends before. For the winning bid, I have a variety of styles to offer, but this is your opportunity for something different from my norm.

I am pretty much closing myself down from commissions on Gaia to real life commissions. I want to thank all my friends, supporters and commissioners over the last few years who've helped me improve my art and skills beyond what I'd ever thought to achieve--and more.

Thank you again, Gaia, you've been a wonderful place to nurture future artist--may you continue to inspire!

Round 1: Invitations-Only Auction

This first round is for friends only---I sent out a bulk of invitations, but if you're a friend who wishes to bid and you didn't receive an invite--DON'T WORRY. Just let me know and I'll send you the invitation via PM.

If I don't recognize you, if you're not on my friend list, you'll have to reserve your bids for the second round.

If you bid and you don't read the rules, you get a polite warning, and then you're banned from bidding in any of the rounds in my auction.



Quote:
To My Honored Guests:


Art has been a major factor all my life, and I would have stopped a long time ago if I hadn't had such wonderful friends to support me and help me forward. I wouldn't be the artist or person you all know now, if it wasn't for you.

I love drawing for someone and watching how it brightens their day. For a friend, the process is by far easier, not to mention funner. I don't have to mince around and guess--I already know you and am comfortable expressing any comments or concerns. And I know--I've grilled so many of you over some of the smallest, least significant seeming information, I'm so grateful for your patience with me!

So this is my way of showing my appreciation to such wonderful people, I hope it pleases everyone.

Sincerely,
Lance

"Spreading Dreams"


Want art but don't think you can afford it? There is salvation---win a delux chibi without spending a single gold piece.

How do I win, you ask?
It's very simple. Take my link and go and share it with other threads. Person with the most successful link postings wins!



Rules:

✤There is no max or min of successful links in order to win; it's whoever has the most at the end.

✤Every time you post the link, you must make sure that the link is put in the threads "Link Out" section.

✤Return to this auction with the link to the place you have left the banner, quote my friend Mokoni to let her know--she's the one keeping track of all this madness!

✤Banner in a thread is worth 1 point/ banner in someone's signature/profile is worth 2 points

Not sure how many points you've got? Check here!
