i would like to open my commission again but..i keep reducing my prices to a point it become miserable. i kinda need your help . (`･/д＼･)
I’m the first one to tell to not under price your commission but i still do it mahself. BruH.
(((╹д╹;))) i know i can’t ask too much for mah cartoon art style but i’ve been to a point where i was fixing mah prices like on deviantart ¾ years ago.(which is very bad considering the low esteem artists have on Da)
i’m not sure any of u would be interested into commissioning me but if u could help with my issue and maybe give your opinion.that would be very kind …
゛(●ﾉ´・Д・｀)ﾉ For the moment,before reducing my prices like crazy, i was thinking :
Colored sketch fullbody human / 15/20 € (+ free for smol object /smol animal ) :
Picture redrawn 70 € / + add.characters 30-40€ (background included ?* i dunno’) :
Cheap option :
“Surprise du chef” / Square page of rough doodles (1 or two characters?!* ) 10 € :
(a bunch of doodles,it can be headshot,chibi,human,colored or not..who knows. surprise?)
So ?! is that too expensive? too cheap? I DUNNO. Sometimes it depends of the time too but i draw quite fast so eEeh…i should even ask less but that would be very tiring for meh ‘cause that’s always intensive hours of work..
One day I’ll just do an easy fluffy one-shot, but—OH WELL!
If only she’d just listen! It was so simple! They liked each other—what’s so confusing about that? Or… at least, that’s what she said. But here she is, going on and on about how things might go wrong. Has she ever stopped to think about what could go right? It was simple. She just needed to understand!
“Chat, we can’t just be a couple! We—I mean, you are a super hero. You can’t tell me your identity and—“ He grabbed her shoulders, forcing her to look at him. “What are you—?” she began, but was immediately cut off.
He crashed his lips onto hers. They’d done it before. Kissed. In fact, that’s exactly why they were even having this conversation… because she kissed him and he kissed her and, well, now he’s kissing her again. He leaned into her, desperately wanting her to understand that this wasn’t so complicated! This is simple, he thought, but hopelessly noted that she wasn’t kissing back. Right?
She made a muffled noise and forcefully pushed him back. “What the hell, Chat!? I just said we can’t do this!” She stepped backwards and frowned, “What’s with you? Do you think life is, like, some kind of romantic comedy where the guy always gets the girl by randomly kissing her? What in the hell kind of gesture is that?” She crossed her arms and looked away.
Honestly, he didn’t know what to say, so he was quiet.
“Well?” she asked, and he noticed a crack in her voice. She was sad.
“Mari…” he all but whispered. “I—no—I mean,” he took in a deep breath, “Look,” he sighed. “I kissed you because I like you. A lot. And, all I know is that I stay up thinking about you, and I can’t ever get you off my mind! To me, it’s pretty simple. Let’s just… go on a date. I’ll take off my mask and we’ll go out on a date. Simple. Just like that.”
“I can’t know who you are!” she nearly hissed at him. Wasn’t he suppose to be the cat here?
He waved his hands in a wide swing, “Why not? It wouldn’t be the end of the world! I trust you, and you trust me. The only people who would know anything of value would be us. You and me. It’s that simple!”
“But it isn’t that simple,” she said quietly as tears welled up in her eyes. “I wasn’t suppose to like you,” she mumbled and he barely heard her.
“What?” he asked airily.
She turned away from him. “Life isn’t a movie, Chat. Things don’t just ‘work out,’” she said bitterly.
He stepped towards her, not daring to touch her. “Well why not? I just want to know why,” he said.
“Because! I wasn’t suppose to fall in love with you!” she yelled, turning towards him. Her hair whipped in her face, sticking to her tear-stained cheeks.
Did he hear her correctly? “Fall in love?” he echoed absentmindedly.
She was quick to try and cover her mistake. “I—no! Y-you know what I m-meant!” she said, avoiding eye contact.
“Can I hug you?” He asked.
“Well, I can’t kiss you, but I still want to be able to show you that I… love you too. So, can I hug you?” he clarified.
There was no verbal response. She only nodded and opened her arms. He walked into her embrace and folded into her. His chin fell in the crevice of her neck and his arms harnessed her close to him. He held her tightly to him, but nothing to make her feel suffocated.
“Why can’t this be simple?” he asked, moving his head so that his forehead rested on her shoulder with his nose brushing her skin.
She sighed, “Chat, this is anything but simple.”
She grabbed his face and placed gentle kisses on his lips.
“H-hey, that’s my tactic,” he said through the kisses. “You’re… acting like a… romanic comedy,” he continued to try and speak.
“Shh,” she mumbled, going back to hugging him. “Okay,” she suddenly said.
“Okay, I’ll tell you why it isn’t simple,” she said, stepping away from him.
He raised his eyebrows, “Will it make things simpler?”
He didn’t say a word as a pinkish reddish light surrounded her. She was right. Things just got a bit complicated.
I wanted to share a quick recipe for fried tofu even though it’s not totally necessary because tofu is one of my favorite things. 👌👌
I didn’t do anything fancy but, hey, that makes it pretty simple and easy to use in any recipe you want. (Here I am having Literally Just Tofu TM -I did add some soysauce and red pepper flakes but.)
Extra firm tofu
Sesame seed oil
Finely minced garlic, about two cloves
You’ll also need:
A refrigeratable marinade container
Some kind of mixing instrument
1. Press the tofu
-remove the tofu from the packaging and drain
-put the tofu on a plate, wrapped loosely in a towel (put napkins or paper towels between the tofu and towel if you’re worried about lint)
-balance something heavy on top; I usually use a large pot/pan and multiple heavy cans. make sure that the weight is even and not too excessive or the tofu may split open and fall apart while frying
-mix sesame seed oil, soy sauce and rice vinegar in a small container in approximately even portions (I usually go kind of light on the sesame seed oil because it’s pretty strong) and the garlic and stir
-cut the tofu into cubes after about half an hour of pressing. you’ll want about twelve cubes to keep them a good size for frying, or adjust for whatever recipe you’re using it for
-soak the tofu in the marinade for about fifteen minutes while refrigerating, or longer to let it absorb more if you’re not as impatient as I am
-heat a frying pan on medium to medium-high heat with about a tablespoon of oil. it’s good to be a bit liberal to prevent the from sticking but be careful and monitor the heat as you go as this can increase splattering
-add the tofu (I like to use a small pan and just a few cubes of tofu at a time) being extra, extra careful of the hot oil (you can use the spatula to keep your hands further from the pan) and stir/flip the tofu until it’s golden brown on all sides. add a bit more oil as you go, especially if you cook the tofu in multiple batches, to keep it from sticking, but again, be very careful! you may need to turn the heat down a bit as you go.
4. Have it with noodles or in a stir fry, or in any recipe you like 😊
(Turn the stove off and be careful when transferring to a dish.)
This may not seem like much of a little space food but it makes a really good snack which is always fun, and it’s super fun to make! The marinade is just my favorite way of doing it but you can use whatever sounds good to you. Be safe!!! Remember that the stove is dangerous for littles so get some help if you need it. Cooking is always more fun with company. ❤❤❤
The Hub will forever and always be one of my favorite episodes. the entire plot arcs around fitzsimmons being together, then apart, then together again. full circle. feelings are bubbling all over the place, all these new emotions, that neither of them are ready to deal with. they both just know, deep down in their core, that they need each other, and they need the other one to be safe. they’ve been exposed to vulnerabilities, life or death, and it’s starting to affect each of them. that’s getting a little deep, but you know what i mean.
BUT! the most important thing to come out of this episode, a cornerstone of their entire relationship, is the fact that fitz’s favorite sandwich is prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella with just a hint of pesto aioli, handmade by jemma. (which sounds delicious btw)
oh! and this
the episode is just as poignant as it is funny.
“No! I can’t be a part of your bad-girl shenanigans! I like following the rules and doing what’s expected of me. It makes me feel nice.”
“Simmons is seriously starting to unravel without Fitz.”
WARNING: FITZ LIKES TO CALL PEOPLE SWEETHEART
“Fitz! More border patrol.” “Already moving! Hurry up!”
“You certainly have a gorgeous head, don’t you? I like men that are about my height but heavier than me.” (smooth, so smooth)
“Good day to be a rat.
I mean, there you are, minding your own business, spreading filth and disease, scavenging for grub worms or rotten fruit, when lo and behold, you see it: a prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella sandwich-” “Fitz.”
“-with just a hint of pesto aioli.”
“This is gonna take a while.”
“You have 10 minutes.”
“I thought you’d say five.”
“I’m every bit the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that you are.”
They never wanted to get involved in the affairs of the rich and powerful, but it’s not like they’re going to refuse a direct summons from the Countess herself, either. Sabah worries that their skills will not be enough to satisfy Nadia—but neither do they want to rush the investigation and sentence an innocent man to his death. All they ever wanted was to study under their master long enough to move on from this city and set themself free from their past…

Summary: Dan was known as a ‘man-eater’ at his school, accepting dates from whoever offered, but he had never stayed with anyone for longer than 7 days. He never expected to change this lifestyle either but then again, he never thought a boy that asked him on a date to see a 'kids movie’ would change any of that.
Warning: mentions of depression (but nothing bad, just saying Dan was sad in the past really) and a panic attack which isn’t too bad
“Did you hear he stopped with Sarah-”
“Only lasted three days!”
“Wasn’t his longest seven?”
“He needs to stop…”
“It’s hard when he knows he’s that hot.”
Dan chuckled as he heard everyone whispering about him as he walked down the corridor. Got to love Fridays.
Dan loved being the centre of attention, 'Man-eater Howell’ they called him, although he’d accept anyone who asked him out. Eyes for everyone. But they were right, Dan had never had a relationship for longer than a week, and that was how he liked it. Easy sex, a date or too- depending on how interesting the person was- and then no more.
Story: Jaune and Ren needed some extra cash for a hit new game that came out recently. They were walking through Vale for part time jobs that fit their schedule when they found an ad for a modelling thing. It was one day only and the amount of money paid was more than enough for the game so they took a shot. The theme turned out to be “bad boys”.
It was a pretty okay photoshoot. They got their games. They also got a card from the agency. And lots of begging for them to come back…
Just something simple-ish to get me back into the swing of things. I listened to a lot of BTS for this. Whalien 52 is my fave.
May… add a short and rough accompaniment comic to this just to show the girls’ reactions. Like a 3 or 4koma or something.
