pricey

I’ve seen people with dragons prices at hundreds of gems who say they’re very open to haggling, and TBH I always wonder if it’s rude to come up and offer like… 50-60k treasure? It’s such a big drop that I always feel like it would be rude to even offer so I never end up asking them. But I kind of wonder if mentioning they’re open to haggling is their way of saying that they’d be willing to take a much lower price as long as it was still a good chunk of change? 60k is pricey for a dragon to me, but it’s all so subjective, and 60k could be insulting pocket change to someone who deals in pricier dragons.  

Ultimately, I’m never sure if people who make a point of saying they’re open to haggling mean “I’ll take 20% off the price if you ask” or “I want these dragons to sell and I’m willing to slash the prices.”

Hey guys! To alleviate some of my spending on post-graduation events I’m opening up a few traditional ink commissions! They’ll be mainly monochrome, and touched up with gold ink.

  • $40 for a single character (like Chihiro & Shiro)
  • Additional characters, extra colour hints, complicated designs and working from description with no visual references will incur extra cost
  • Max. 3 characters per drawing. Something like the BNHA piece will be around $80-100.
  • Price includes standard international P&P, but you will need to pay extra if you want insurance/tracking/courier etc
  • Full payment will be requested once I provide you with thumbnail sketches. I’ll complete the drawing once this has been received.
  • If you want a quote, please email me! There’s no obligation to follow through if it’s out of your price range. 
  • If you’d like a plain pencil sketch for cheaper, that’s fine too. Just email me to ask!
  • Fanart and real people are fine. I can’t draw mecha, but feel free to inquire about anthro.

I can draw very fast so turnaround time will be quick.

Email me at manmanfan@hotmail.co.uk if you’re interested or have any other questions. Thank you so much!

things that make neil feel real:

  • dan’s facebook photo albums
  • being spun around until he’s dizzy whenever he sees matt
  • having to clean up cat litter :(
  • the fond hair ruffle wymack gives him when he comes to visit palmetto
  • that one time all of the foxes managed to get together for a reunion (and the repeat cuddle pile that followed)
  • allison’s vague tweets that are very obviously about his friends
  • team game night (also known as neil trying not to nod off in the corner but loving the time spent with his family anyways)
  • articles about how far the foxes have come
  • stadiums filled with thousands of exy fans cheering him and his team on
  • being part of kevin’s acceptance speech as he’s inducted into the hall of fame
  • being able to sign his name on official documents
  • drinking pricey fruit smoothies (and pretending not to notice whenever andrew steals a sip)
  • having a ring full of keys that he actually uses and a ring full of keys that he can’t bring himself to give up
  • waking up in the morning and feeling like he’s home

things that andrew finds himself living for:

  • weekly skype calls with nicky
  • an amazon account that’s used to send impulse buys to the other minyards (including but not limited to: chemistry cat sweatshirts, a kevin day limited edition operation game, a recipe book of various chocolate desserts)
  • letters from renee, written in her barely-legible handwriting and usually covered with animal stickers
  • hot chocolate and phone calls with bee
  • robin slowly upping her stats and the way she’d excitedly call to tell him (as if he’s the one who actually cares)
  • the occasional opportunity to blackmail kevin into letting him skip court practices using embarrassing photos from their college days
  • making the team’s nutritionist cry
  • volunteer charities that work to help kids stuck in the foster care system/abusive households
  • the hilarious expressions of surprise on the foxes’ faces when they see him take care of his nieces at their reunion
  • the tea place a few streets down that trade him pictures of his and neil’s cats doing dumb things with whatever desserts they have left over
  • waking up in the morning and feeling like he’s home
