-The artist is 23
-Has been drawing since the dawn of time
-Is going to college and can sometimes be overwhelmed
-Also writes, crochets, tats, and reads quite often
-Had a pixel shop that is closed for now
-Is sometimes seen giving things out in the freebie section
About the Shop
The shop was created because the artist felt she could maybe make some gold off her silly little doodles, and didn’t see why she shouldn’t. She had already owned and ran a pixel doll shop, though grew tired of that and decided to do these instead. The shop has been designed to the best of her ability, she not being a very prolific layout designer by any means. For now, all the graphics and layout have been created solely by the sweat and blood of the artist. It’s not top notch, but it will serve its purpose.
Any donations of graphics or layout help are greatly appreciated.
Be sure to check out the "Contests" section for chances to win free art and the "Other Art Styles" section to see what other types of art you can score!
Oh, and don’t mind the troll. He just sort of showed up and we haven’t been able to get rid of him.
(9/1/13) - I will be gone from the 6th to the 11th of September. During this time I won't be doing art, so you can request, but I might not get to you for a while.
(7/26/13) - XxXReaverWolfXxX gave me some tips in a freebie livestream about how to use SAI more effectively. Hopefully that will mean a better product for you guys.
(7/11/13) - Classes have started for me this summer, so I won't have as much down time. I will work on these, but my progress may be slower than usual.
(6/30/13) - It will be 107 tomorrow, and good god does that not bode well. No real shop update. I just feel like complaining about the weather. TAKE ME TO AUSTRALIA WHERE IT IS WINTER. kthnxbai.
(5/31/13) - New dice roll contest. Kudos for anyone who knows why I chose that number, and also for anyone who can help me figure out how to undo the dice roll I accidentally did on that post, if there is a way. Thanks!
(5/31/13) - Another update today... I have added "comics" as an option for ordering. Now you can order little scenes of your avatars and characters! These are more expensive, quite a bit depending on what you want in them. However, they could be fun, and they don't have to be complicated. See below in the "Prices" and "Samples" section for more information.
(5/31/13) - Me again! I changed the troll picture on the Contests page. I feel it is more suitable.
(5/9/13) - 30 orders completed! Woo woo!
(4/3/13) - Changed up the second contest question to make it a bit easier. Not that anyone is guessing anyway. >> Or ordering. What can I do to get more customers? Any ideas?
(3/25/13) - SPRING BREAK! Down time, you say? Fill it with stuff! I'll be with a friend until Wednesday, so if I don't respond between now and then, that is why. After that there is some medical stuff that needs to happen, but I'll be around. Then school starts again! It's a magical cycle.
(3/4/13) - New contest added! It's lame, but whatever.
(3/3/13) - I'm cosplaying my troll. Is "cosplaying" the right word here? Eh. I dun care. It's fun.
(3/3/13) - It's March, for those of you not paying attention. From here on out, from a arbitrary decision, I will be putting my signature on art now. It's just a little cursive-like H thing, so no panicking. This will not effect already created art, only news ones.
(2/28/13) - Over 25 orders!
(2/18/13) - Changed the troll picture on the Prices page. Though ya'll should know that.
(2/16/13) - I have removed the Cute as a Button section... because it was a stupid, half-awake decision. I'm replacing it with another half-awake decision. I am offering other art styles now (see the section below "contests" for more information). These will be bribe only, and not applicable as contest prizes unless stated otherwise. Also, happy Valentines Day! emotion_bigheart
(2/2/13) - I have decided that SAI is AWESOME. quality seems to improve. Hurray! =3
(2/1/13) - I just got a copy of SAI. My art might look a little different, but hopefully this is for the better! Animations will still be based in photoshop, though. Anyway, just thought you should know that while I'm figuring SAI out, things might be funky. X3
(1/12/13) - New Cute as a Button section open. See below (under the contests section) for more details.
(12/25/12) - HAPPY HOLIDAYSgaia_star
(11/22/12) - HAPPY THANKSGIVING! yum_pumpkinpie
(11/19/12) - I just noticed we're on Page 20. Let's see if we get a customer for the contest or not.
(11/13/12) - My tenth order has just been completed! So happy. crying
(11/11/12) - Since I last updated I have handed out one freebie for the posting contest... And sadly added someone to my blacklist. It pains me to do it, it really does, but when someone refuses to pay for the art you've made, you really get to a point where your tolerance runs out. I'm hoping this turns out to be an isolated incident, and not a trend. Hope you're all having a good weekend!
(10/31/12) - HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
(10/27/12) - Added a contest. Hopefully as the shop gets more active, I'll come up with another one. Fingers crossed it gets more active. >>
(10/25/12) - Added price for backgrounds. Any orders place from now on with a background requested will be charged just a bit extra.
(10/20/12) - Shop open! Let the orders flood in. =D
(1) Follow the ToS.
(2) Common courtesy is your friend. Be kind to others, obey the golden rule, and use common sense.
(3) Don’t steal my art and use it as your own. Do not claim it is of your creation.
(4) I can change the rules at any time, as I see fit.
(5) Send me a trade when you order. I will accept it when your art is done.
(6) Do not PM me about your art. I will be getting it done as soon as possible. If there is too much of a delay, I will let you know.
(7) All OCs must have a full body picture reference.
(8 ) Please, please give me a reference picture with your order form, in case I have to take a break and you change it while I’m away.
Saying “current” won’t help me or you in the long run.
(9) Play nice and have some fun! Feel free to stay and chat.
(10) Please save all pictures to your own server.
(11) I reserve the right to remove things from your avatar if it is too complicated.
(12) I will quote you with your art once it is finished, or if I need further information.
(13) Did you remember the reference picture?
That’s all I have for now. Rules are subject to change as time goes on and things arise.
One avatar/OC/fantart = 10k
Couples x2 that =20k
Text = +1k
Flob (one of the pictures with a bracket next to it. They are used primarily to decorate posts) = No charge to make it a flob
Animation = Discussed upon order
Backgrounds = 5-10k depending on difficulty. Will discuss upon order.
Comics = Discussed upon order. General rule of thumb is that I charge 10k per figure in the comic. If a character shows up twice, their price will be 20k, plus whomever else is in the comic with them.
Buying with Items
You may buy your art with items, but they must be items that are worth as much as the price of the art of more.
If the list is full, and you really want to be on it, then you can bribe me. Depending on my work load depends on how much you need to bribe me. We can talk about it.
Things you should know about the art
(1)The Art is legless, meaning that it is a waist up version of your order, be that Avatar, OC, or Fanart.
(2)They do not have arms, but they do have hands.
(3)They don’t’ have mouths, so all expression will have to be done with the eyes.
(4)They will be flatly colored.
(5)You may have them made into a flob.
(6)Cluttered or complicated orders, if accepted, will be simplified and detracted from.
(7) I do couples and singles, but you’ll have to bribe me to do more than two.
(8 )These also don’t have boobs. (Sorry!)
(9)Generally, I DO NOT accept orders regarding real people, famous or otherwise.
(10)Animations are tricky. I can only do simple ones, like winking, blinking, or floating hearts. Keep this in mind if you want something like that.
(11) If you have a comic in mind, please give me as much information as possible when you order. Have a general idea in mind, even if it's as simple as "draw me taking Alucard's hat" (see sample 1). If I have questions, I'll ask, but if you're too unclear about it, I won't be able to help you. I think for this, I'll give a general sketch first, and we can see if you like it before I commit to a final draft and we know the exact price if not already confirmed.
When ordering, please send a trade at the same time.
Give me a picture reference!

[b]Couple or Single:[/b]
[b]Don’t forget the…:[/b]
[b]Leave out the…:[/b]
[b]Pose or Expression:[/b]
Here’s the rundown
Username: You put your username here. Pretty self-explanatory. Type:State whether this is an Avatar, OC, or fan art order, or if it’s a combination. Couple or Single:Is is a single or a double? Remember, I’m extremely reluctant to go over two. Don’t forget the…:Put anything here that I MUST NOT FORGET. Please don’t put things here like “the shoes” or “the smile” because as I started above, I don’t do those. Be reasonable. Leave out the…:Put anything here that I might as well leave out of the picture. Flob:To flob or not to flob. That is the question. Text:Put here if you want text, what you want it to say, and how you want it oriented. Animation:Put what sort of animation you want here… Remember, we will need to discuss this, and if it’s too complicated I won’t be able to do it. Pose or Expression:If you have a specific pose or expression in mind, put it here. Picture refs are wonderful, but not required. I’ll try my best with them, because I’m somewhat limited.If you don’t care what the thing is doing, don’t bother with this one. Comments:Put any additional comments, desires, or suggestions here. Ref Picture:put your ref pictures, or links to such here. YOU MUST HAVE A REF PICTURE OR I WILL NOT DRAW YOU. Sorry, that’s just how it goes.
The first customer to post on every tenth page (10th, 20th, 30th… 100th, etc.) will get free art. It will be a single only, of an avatar, OC, or fan art. If the order is a couple art, I think I'll be able to do it at half price. It will also only be the main art, not the bribe only art as seen in the next section. If no one posts on that page but me, no one gets free art. If the first person who posts on that page wants to pay for it, then there will be no backups. So, there will be no second places. Also, if you order on a previous page, and we are talking about your order, and you are the first person to post on a tenth page, you will not get previous order for free, but rather will have to order something else. You must alert me to your winning. Post away!

The second contest is arbitrary, but I felt like making it. The first one to guess a certain aspect about me gets to have a freebie of whatever they choose! Every new contest will have a different topic. All you have to do is to be the first to guess it correctly in the thread, either with an order or just chatting. Boom. Done. I'll let you know if you've won. For now the limit of guesses will be five, because that feels like a good number.
Current Question: Name a musical group that is on my playlist.
#1: Lyra_the_Human (Guessed Green Day)
The third contest is a dice roll contest. Roll one 100 sided dice. If you get the number 42, you win an art of your choice. You can roll once a day for a chance to win, and can win as many times as you'd like.(Ignore the dice roll thing at the top of the post. I did that accidentally and don't know how to make it go away. HALP.)
This section is for the other styles of drawing I do. This is not the main purpose of the shop. I could open a shop that was dedicated to this sort of style, but I know I would get burned out on it really fast, because it is very intensive for me and takes a lot of time.
This style of art is obtainable by bribe only. How much it will cost you depends on my mood, how willing I am, and how much time I have on my plate. Each piece takes me at least an hour to do. I know it doesn't look like much, but I can be a slow drawer sometimes, especially when I'm shading.
I am using SAI, and not used to it yet, so you won't get nice pretty blended shading at this time. You can choose to have no shading at all, in fact, if you want to.
I do head shots and busts/waist ups. I want to avoid doing hands as much as possible, because I'm terrible at them. I know I should practice, but I don't. I also know I'm not the best shader, one of the reasons I'm not doing these as a regular source of income.
If you want one, fill out the form below and post it in the thread. We can haggle if needed until both parties are satisfied. At that point, I will fit it in between my other projects. It might take a while to complete, what with an intensive class load and how long these take me. Be patient.
Oh, and I don't do couples for these. They will also be devoid of animation. Sorry.
