With all the awesomeness that is Gaia Spirit Week, I've had a ton of fun for a whole week in July, every July. But in my merriment I spend quite a bit of gold making my avatar snazzy for each theme. Now I want it back, and then some, and I'm willing to earn it the old-fashioned way: activity.
I'm not expecting donations or tips, but of course anything will be appreciated. I still have quite a bit of gold and everything I want is super expensive. What the heck's with paying real money for MAYBE getting a certain random chance item, anyway? This thread is more or less tracking my progress as I pathetically try to attain some of Gaia's most elusive items. The kicker is that I'm also a college student with a real life, which makes things even slower... Wish me luck.

・Follow the rules of the forum and TOS and whatnot. [Obviously, in case you missed Rule 1]
・Please pay attention to my haggles over donating, available below.
A word about...++++++++++++++++++++
ART REQUESTS Let me clarify something that could be horrifically confusing. I am an artist, yea, an art major. Previously I've done art requests on Gaia, but not so much anymore. When I have the time and the drive, I'm willing to do commissions. So be on the lookout during vacation & holiday times. If I do open up for requests, I might not accept donations per se.
A warning of the obvious, however. This isn't an art shop, and I'm not always active. I inadvertently took 15-week hiatuses from Gaia these past two semesters, I was that busy. So if you donate anything, don't expect anything back. That's kind of obvious about any donations... I can't guarantee anything, and that's why I won't ask for anything.

Here I will keep note of witty remarks and insightful comments that I somehow think up.
・I have come to the conclusion, by experience and observation, that if one is mature online then one is mature in real life.
・Don't wait for inspiration. Get motivated.
・The magical secret of art begins with PR, has an ACT in the middle, and ends with ICE.
So I have one week before school starts, a big list of Gaia items I want, and an itch to do some art. Thus, for this one week, I am opening up for commissions! Be warned that I'm not totally cheap, but this isn't half-hearted art either.
・Don't be a complete moron.
・Follow the rules of the forum and TOS, in case you missed the first rule.
Won't draw: hentai, shounen-ai, shoujo-ai
