These first posts are slowly but surely getting updated. All that's left is the bio, I do believe. XD

1. General Information/"Welcome" 2. Current WIPs/Past Customers 3. Samples 4. About Me 5. The Banner of Doom 6. Pricing



Please don't be afraid of my Nii-chan, Fidei Defensor, bumping the thread with a line-by-line telling of his stories. They may be creepy, but I assure you, he's not.
My Wife, Queen Ampersand of Nosex, on the other hand, might be the one you'll have to worry about if she finds out that you were here and didn't purchase anything when you voted that you would.

WELCOME TO MY SHOP!
Currently, I am accepting only TRADITIONAL and WRITING commissions. Don't like it? Tough nuts.

A message from the President of the Shop

You may request ANYTHING so long as it fits within two mediums: Traditional Drawing and Writing.
Well, I'm fixing up the first page, so that it's much prettier and more official. Hopefully, I'll get lucky and people'll want me to help them with their posts, too! =D

UPDATED/NEW SECTIONS:
-Prices have been updated to reflect skill and inflation on Gaia.


Needs to work on next:
-This post. Ugh. *shudders*


That asterisk in the title

Is not there anymore lol. Stay tuned for the next page event marker.

LEGAL STUFF:
I reserve the right to deny your reduced/free commission.
I reserve the right to choose between a reduced/free commission upon hearing your request.
I reserve the right to deny you a commission


Questions!

Whaddya mean, Multi-Styled?
Multi-Styled, or some people who've perfected themselves call it Multi-Talented Art. I can work on just about any medium, though I can't do certain styles due to lack of materials, like painting and sculpting. Believe me, if I had the chance to get the materials, I'd go for it and not think twice.


Where's some examples?
In post three. There's a big number "3" with a period and the word "samples" following it.

What's acceptable(†) and what's not?(-)
†Anything! As long as it isn't hentai, porn, yaoi, yuri, or kissing. (I haven't tried it, but if you don't mind a crappy commission, be my guest) [I've tried it once and .... User Image I wouldn't recommend it just yet... Unless you really don't care.]
-Nothing against Gaia's ToS for art commissions.
-Expecting super exquisite art. I have no skills that I am hiding, and what you see in my samples and on my deviantart page is as good as I can get at the moment. Maybe if you come back in fifty years I'll be at the quarter level of artistic talent as my friend/deviant kariavalon, but until then, please do not expect more than what you see.
† As of 4/17/08, I now help with websites!!!! 8D Thus, I will be reopening my shop and getting more active. (Because I've been a lazy a** lolwut.) If you want more information on this, please PM me with the title "so I herd u did websites/html" (Okay, not really, but please having something online the lines of "website help/assistance/etc" wink . -However, I do NOT do profiles. The coding/script for these is different than what I'm familiar with. (Then again, I've never tried to edit mine, so what do I know?)


Title for....???
Undecided section. D:

Current status!
Open for Writing and Traditional requests ONLY
8/25/11 Reopened temporarily!
I need to go and get some items for a bride-theme avatar and I don't have enough gold to make it happen! Dx
1/02/10 Two days before Winter Intersession
I don't get many requests by people just bumping this thread, so I think I'll have no problem keeping it open during the next session, I hope. I'm hoping I'll get good enough that I can eventually get real $$$ commissions, but I don't think that'll happen a lot outside any plushie making and writing.
9/14/09 Stress
I'm sorry, I can't take on any other offers right now/won't be able to get to them for quite awhile. I have two/three pics that I do plan on doing, BUT it might not be for awhile. School has suddenly turned quite stressful, and I feel like a pendulum has just decided to start swooping down, threatening to kill me if I'm not careful. I'm sorry, but any new requests I receive I may not be able to get to for several months. If you don't mind the wait, go ahead and post, but there's no guarantee that I will accept.
8/20/09 Last week before school!
And I should learn to delete this section and put it into the top post's quote box. Anyways, school starts on Monday, so I wanna try to get in some more art before all my creativity goes back into essays.
Which I'm sure I'll have a nerve-racking amount of. x-x

4. ABOUT ME.



Hmm... What can I say about myself? I don't really like talking about myself, though I have the tendency to want the spotlight quite a bit. I also warn you--- I'm an English major, so I tend to ramble for long periods of time.
Let's start with the basics:
Hajimemashite. My name's Sarah, but you can call me Melody Hikari, and only that. I am eighteen years of age. If you want to buy me a birthday present, you'll have to wait until November 30th. I'm not even going to question why you would want to.
My main sites are GaiaOnline and DeviantArt. I love these places, even if they're changing and becoming less like the websites that I used to know. My DeviantArt account is Melody-Hikari, so feel free to stalk watch me. On Gaia, I like to prowl a hangout for an RP group that I was a part of and have found again, Austin's DTTPAY, my RP Bar [even if it's almost always empty], and chat threads for the groups that I hang out with. I am was a moderator for Austin's DTTPAY, so feel free to ask me any questions you have about it. I can't really tell someone to give you a donation that you didn't receive anymore, though.
I am currently [technically] a Sophomore at Mt. San Antonio College, a community college. I love it here even more than I love my high school, and I LOVED my high school. o_o; My high school taught me a lot about various computer software programs, so I'm not afraid to step up to the plate [and strike out] when it comes to figuring out what's wrong with some programs. It also helped me figure out a bit of who I am and who I'm not, and the small but loving community of teachers and students is something that I will never forget. My college... I never dreamed I would enjoy so much, but I finally found my niche, the Anime Club, and have fitted right in since the Fall started, even though I had been going since Summer of 2008. Mt. SAC's Bridge Program was extremely helpful in easing my anxiety about college, so that when Fall rolled around, I was completely comfortable taking classes outside their program. I highly recommend to any future, prospective, or current college students to look into a program at their university regarding new students and easing the transition from jail to freedom. lol I am a Creative Writing major, and can't wait to transfer to a school that has it as a degree option. UCR was my hope, but with the current budget cuts that my state is facing, I'm better off looking for a private university that has a major that I feel comfortable studying in. For the Fall '09 and Spring '10 semesters, I'm Anime Club's secretary. =D Nihongo o benkyooshimasu.
I can't go a day without listening to music, in some way, shape, or form. It helps keep me calm and tearing off heads of every single idiot I come across in my daily life. Rock, Metal, and some J-pop/rock can be found on my iPod. I love watching anime, and it's what has gotten me into studying the Japanese culture and choosing Japanese as a language to study for transfer over Spanish. [Spanish would be a strong choice to make, too, where I live.]
My career goal is incomplete, but I do know that I want to become a librarian as my job. If that sounds the same to you, you obviously did not go to a level of education yet in which they clearly define the difference between a "career" and a "job". My choices for a career are all paycheck-to-paycheck occupations, and I would like to have a daily one instead. Because of this job choice, you surely got the idea that I love books and people, right? Only one of those is true, and I'm sure you can figure it out if you're still reading and remember what I said my major was.
I miss going to my library. I think, that if I don't take classes this summer [read: in one week], that I'm going to volunteer again as a reader this summer. I missed out last summer because of Bridge's summer program, so that means no 6-peat volunteering. </3 But I will be a fifth-year volunteer. I also have enough seniority that I can sit at the tech desk in the children's department! xd It's awesome! [Okay, so as of the Thursday before Fall semester, I have not gone back to the library. </3]
I haven't drawn since my Junior year of High School-- nothing really serious and full of heart. I can't wait to receive some art requests so that I can start drawing again. I've wrote a bit, but I haven't taken pictures or drawn anything in so long..... I hope I haven't become rusty. LOL. I've drawn some pictures recently. A commission and some art that can be seen on my DeviantArt account, listed at the bottom of the samples post.
Video games have been my alternate to music for a long, long time, before I even realized an addiction to music that I have been neglecting lately, too. My preferences are RPGs, Simulations, and fun Multiplayers. I've grown up on Nintendo systems, so I have a bias to them that has been wearing thin in recent years. Nintendo is starting to appear to be anti-customer satisfaction lately and pro-money-milking. </3 I haven't own my PS2 for more than a few months, but I'm not completely lost on my buttons anymore.
This is a really long About Me, and I'm sure it's one of the longest you'll ever read. If it's not, please let me know. heart I can drone on and on because of the estrogen in me. ;]
I think that's all for now, but feel free to PM me if there's anything else you want to know about me, or leave a comment in the thread. The comment would be more loved over the PM. =3
