Commission for Minsc9 over at FA of one of his ocs, Tharyn.
Life Update: College troubles and plans to move
Things are still a bit hectic, but at least one of the problems in rl is slowly being fixed. Dunno what I’m gonna do next semester since it’s bound to happen again… This school year’s financial aid couldn’t cover my classes (despite an employee from the college offices assuring me it should), family forced me to take em anyways (insisting I was wrong various times) and I almost got into a big debt (still not in the clear since there’s the last monthly payment in November). If it were up to me I would have just dropped out because unlike my delusional family I know I don’t really have the money to pay for these kinds of things; everyone knows college is expensive. The only reason I’ve been able to pay for it so far is because they’ve been borrowing money, which at first I didn’t get my hopes up for since I’ve been lied to quite a few times over the years.
I’m planning to move away from here once I have enough money for a ticket (and w/e other stuff I need; never traveled before, so I don’t really know where to start); I’m sick of putting up with all the stuff that happens at home and I can’t be true to myself if I stay. Regardless of all this, I’ve actually been thinking about it for quite some time, though back then I didn’t really have a place to stay at or the means to move. But as long as the semester’s still going I can’t do anything about it.
Tl;dr: Forced to take classes, almost got a huge debt. Planning to move away at some point, more focus on my art and freedom with my personal life.
Still busy with assignments. Gotta come up with some pottery designs due this Thursday to make the real deal for next week (also due on a Thursday), plus get started on some paint class assignments, ugh. So I’ll still be slow with these, but I’ll try to have a WIP done by this week for those who are still around from the last set of slots if I haven’t shown you guys anything yet.
The currently available commission slots will help me with food/snacks, art supplies, Bayonetta 2, and/or Super Smash Bros Wii U. Whatever is left will be put toward my moving funds (when I have an estimate on the costs I’ll let you guys know).
Any questions, feel free to send me a note and if it’s not too much trouble, please spread the word. Thanks.
Slots (Updated as of Oct.18, 2014)
Well, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post anything over here, so I thought I’d just let you guys know. Class assignments (and some other rl stuff) have been keeping me busy lately and when I do find a bit of time to work on stuff I try to spend it working on some current commissions, which if it weren’t for the former I’m sure I would have been done with them by now. :(
I can’t make any promises, but I really do wanna have something up by the end (or at the very least a single thing during) this week if I’m even able to get anything done…
Also, for those who didn’t know, I have a twitter (where I sometimes post if anything’s going on in rl since I found it a bit faster than making a post here + tagging, which I still do here from time to time) which you can go to by clicking the following link: https://twitter.com/LuxenTheGiant
Last drawing for the night. Originally one of a few simple warmup doodles I had done when I was working on one of Zhu’s commission sets.
We finally get to see Nova’s full beard (his pecs are always in the way, so I wanted to make an exception; it’ll help when working on his “human size” appearance, which he rarely uses when visiting Kozuro and the others on Earth because he prefers having them come to him instead).
Also, gasp, no armpit hair! I’ll fix that in another drawing ;)
Whoops, forgot I had this lying around and barely had anything left for it to be finished. It’s the last drawing of those doodle batches from summer, the second Saph one.
Also, if ya can’t tell, I love asses. A lot (despite that I’ve barely drawn any lately haha).
And now a not hyper drawing. The idea came up during the hyper one I posted earlier, so here’s Lux wearing a blue thong.
Got this done during the stream (which is still going on, so come over if you’re interested; post with link and info over here)
A sequel to this: http://luxalive.tumblr.com/post/90630716641/seems-lux-bought-some-potions-and-lucked-out-as
Seems this potion was stronger than the last, though it didn’t increase his pit hair this time.
The stream is over, thank you very much to the few who came and made this a rather fun night. :D
Please note: This is basically a drawing warm up as I haven’t been drawing much or at all personal bara stuff. Also as a test to see if xsplit works better than procaster.
I’ll also be accepting commissions or donations for the new laptop battery during the stream (long story short: a friend suggested I do another weight gain growth drive on my fat blog and other sites and it hasn’t gone that well; still need for the battery) and after that goal is reached I’m gonna have to concentrate on buying canvases or the materials to make them at the college workshop.
P.S. For those who do not have Paypal, but still want to get a commission, as of today you’ll be able to pay with Gamestop e-gift cards, Nintendo eShop cards (USA) or Amazon gift cards; possibly for a limited time only. Obviously, these payment methods do not count toward the battery (save for Amazon, but it’s expensive there and does not ship to PR last I checked…) Just like the usual payments, the card must be given before I begin working on it.
If you have any questions, please send an ask.
I should have posted this before the semester started, but I wanted to make sure it wasn’t just a fluke. My laptop battery is officially dead since 2-3 days ago; the laptop still picks it up, yet it never charges (ie. 0% available [plugged in, charging]). Because of this I’m now forced to have my laptop plugged in at all times and if the power goes out in the neighborhood I’ll lose any progress I’ve worked on…
I need to make about $109.99 (without counting shipping and taxes; it doesn’t seem to show me any of that upon checkout and it doesn’t seem to say if they ship to PR) to be able to buy it from their official site: http://goo.gl/1s6wSm
It also seems to be on Amazon for half of that, more or less, but in lower quantities (I’m not sure what the number in parentheses at the end is, probably the part#? Seems different than the one on Dell’s site, but hopefully that’s just a typo and will work either way): http://amzn.com/B00G0O7ASU
The links above show the battery I need; to be specific, it’s for a Dell Inspiron 15 (3520). If you guys know of where to get a better deal for a battery (or one that lasts longer) that works with my laptop, please let me know.
Commission prices are the same as usual: http://luxalive.tumblr.com/comminfo
P.S. I’m now willing to take inflation commissions, but only if I’m interested in the content and will not post them unless asked by the commissioner. Because of that I’ll probably be extremely picky with them (please note that if they’re posted they’ll be thumbnails, just like the extreme hyper commission posts to avoid any issues with followers who aren’t into that).
Just to make sure, inflation will strictly be a commission-only thing. Being okay with it under rare/certain circumstances (ie. a fave artist’s style) does not mean I actually like it or am willing to draw it for free.
Also, please keep in mind that due to my classes and previous ongoing commissions things will be slow.
