• basic color + shades
• payment via PayPal
• digital only

Thanks for your support and everything! <3 hope you have a great day!

Okay let’s do this again, but a bit differently. My last post about commissions with my normal prices didn’t pick up, so here we go:

ANYTHING FOR 5$

I’m in such bad financial situation right now, I am ready to draw any kinda picture with only 5$. Icons, loadout pictures, bust, full body, SFM work etc.
The topic of the picture can be discussed, because there are some things I won’t draw.

I know I’m selling myself short, but what can you do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I am very passionate about not starving to death.

Tips are always welcome, all of the money will be used to buy food and medicene, two things I need to live.

Here are some examples:

hi so,,, i need money! my family is struggling to by groceries and pay for bills, so in order to help not starve, i’m opening commissions! i suffer from mental illnesses that won’t allow me to get a traditional job, so this is the net best option :3c


these are pay what you can so,,! prices obviously vary because. yeah haha. prices will stay this way so long as im not getting ripped off.


i wont do

- nsfw

- anything offensive (racist, homophobic, transphobic, etc)

- some animals (ask)


uH yeah,, send an ask to this blog or shoot me an email at ggoregod@gmail.com if ur interested! thank u

  • it’s common knowledge that kim junmyeon is the king of dad jokes right
  • prepare to be spAMMED with them 
  • “jagi, just lISTEN TO THIS ONE” “fine” “A ham sandwich walks into a bar and orders a beer. Bartender says, ‘Sorry we don’t serve food here.’” “oPPA” 
  • some people like to make him out to be obessed with money or something even tho he really isn’t  bUT he would aLWAYS try to make sure that you have everything you need
  • honestly you’d be kinda afraid to share your needs sometimes
  • bc there was most likely one time when you were like “oh I really want to go to Paris one day” “okay jagi you have your plane tomorrow at 9, is it good for you?” “what” 
  • dealing with 8 other kids is stressful okAY so sometimes he just needs to go to your appartment and have you cook that dish only you know how to make 
  • and he’d just ramdomly come up behind you and hug you while you’re at it because he knows that he can lean on you any time
  • you two would probably end up laying in bed, your head resting on his chest while he just blurts out what had been on his mind until one of you fall asleep
  • I totally see him being the type of guy that prepares really special dates and sends you a lot of your favorite flowers and chocolates
  • long, sweet kisses halfway through movies
  • hand holding whenever you can because for some reason your hand just ??? really fits in his ?? and he just never wants to let go 
  • ALSO THE TYPE OF GUY THAT WOULD TURN ON SOME REALLY SLOW MUSIC AND DANCE WITH YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR LIVING ROOM
  • the members would probably look at u with a lot of respect
  • especially because there was this time when junmyeon was rly tired and the boys didn’t shut up or calm down and you just yELLED AT THEM WITH A RLY SCARY FACE and they all went silent at the same time
  • they love u though bc you make their leader the happiest man in the world
  • he’d be kinda oblivious to your innuendos tho 
  • but once you made it kinda clear what you meant when you started talking abt him humping a cane on stage, $uho would fLY to wherever u where 
  • 10 minutes later he’s @ your house in his practice clothes

requests open for scenarios, reactions, fake text messages and boyfriend!exo

sorry but not really sorry for the xenomorph spam

i’ve been waiting for ALien covenant so i’m all hype and my fiancee and I already went and spurged our money on the graphi cnovels and shit and I need more of the xenobeebs on my dash

HELLO !!!!

So I’m opening sketch commissions. 

So : 

- I’ll draw most things except porn, mechas or gore…..

- But blood or nudity are very okay ^^ 

- I accept original character, fanart and celebrities. 

- I can draw couples but add 5€ to the portrait and 8€ to the waist up. 

- Payment via paypal (chèque okay pour les français)

- Contact me via mail (m._.boyer@hotmail.fr) or my ask box


HOW IT WORKS :

- After we agreed on the type of com and the price, you can send me references (pictures and if not, very detailed descriptions). I like to know a bit of the psychology of the character too, so don’t hesitate to explain me his/her life in details :P 

- I do some quick sketches very rough for a pose and when you’re okay, the payment is done after that.

- Then I’ll work one the final version, and will send you WIP if you want (changes can be done in this stage too but mostly on the colors, expressions or small details but not on the general pose of course). 

- I’ll send you a 300 dpi of the commission. And if you’re okay, I’ll also post a low def on this tumblr (but it’s your decision). 

- AND THAT’S IT ! Thank you so much for your interest and signal boost and I love you all <3 


Really sorry for the spam but the need for money is strong right now ^^’ 

And if you cannot afford a commission, a reblog is always really appreciated <3 And I’ll love you forever for that <3 

okay, so I (technically my little sister but you know, same difference lol) actually won tickets to the walking dead premiere!!! but there’s one problem: I’m from philadelphia and the premiere is in los angeles. 

I lost my job last week and my depression has been getting worse as a result of this, so even though I pretty much immediately accepted that I wouldn’t be able to go, I got very excited when I saw the email saying that we’d won. The walking dead has been a big part of my life for a while now, and I’ve been dying to meet the cast since forever but I never got the chance because I couldn’t afford to go to comic con and pay for photo ops and autographs and all that. Now I finally have the opportunity to, but I still don’t have the means.

I was looking up plane ticket costs out of curiosity and it looks like the cheapest ticket would cost about $295 (each). I don’t really feel good asking people for money but I was just wondering if anyone would be up to donate if they can? I haven’t made a gofundme yet or anything, I’m still thinking about whether or not I even should. 

If I were to go I would definitely do my best to try and ask a richonne related question, for what it’s worth ;) 

Thanks for reading.

I’m sorry for spamming this, but due to some unexpected financial issues, I am in dire need of money for car repairs and for tuition this semester. Rather than asking for donations, I thought that I would accept commissions for these out of this world cat photos- each photo is entirely customized with photos of your cats/other pets! Message me for details!

hello, everyone!
i’m really antsy about making this post, but i have discovered that i really do not have the funds and i need to reach out

there was a fluke, and i just found out, today, 2/3/15, that i have to take on two, possibly three, extra classes in order to graduate from high school

only one of these classes will be free, and one other i am already doing at this moment is free.

but the other is $100, or can even be up to $150

depending on how quickly i finish the class i already have started, i’ll be able to start my second class for free.

but i do not have the money to afford this, what with saving up for college + trying to prepare for potentially moving out of the house.

i already have a commissions post going around for my writing (which you can find here) but i’m worried i might not be able to make the money i need within that time.

so, just in case, i set up a donations button on my blog.

if one hundred people donated just one dollar, i’d be able to get what i need.

sadly, i can’t offer much in return.
hell, i’ll write all the fanfiction you’ll ever want if you wanted me to–i truly wish i could pay back in some way that equates this!
i have shiny pokemon giveaways in store already, but again, some pixels on a screen do not compare to a hundred bucks.

for now, all i can is ask is that you please help me.
if anyone has suggestions on what i could do later on in order to pay this all back, i would love to hear it.

my deadline is unknown right now, but i’m shooting to be done with this current course i’m on by february 18th

thank you so much!

crabbyhunter  asked:

Frick Ciel, I just read your little thing about scanlations and it really affected me. You were referring to the oshix3 scanlation group weren't you? I'm usually indifferent to this issue because I'm extreeemely guilty of taking whatever I can get for free, but your reaction was so strong that I'm re-thinking my values here.

Okay I’ve had a bit of time to sit down and think through what I want to say, and this is a really fucking long post so my apologies to anyone that sees this. I didn’t intend to mention the scanlation group, but I guess there’s only really one with a huge presence on tumblr, though I’ve seen a few others around.

Honestly I think this whole thing affects me a bit more than the average person because I’m also an artist (well, I don’t like calling myself that, but for ease of explanation), and I’m friends with doujinka in Japan, and I personally know the effort that it takes to put out a book - I’m literally sitting here crying trying to figure out how I’m going to find enough time to finish my furusawa book I’m putting out at an event in October with my 9-6 job, often doused in an unhealthy dose of overtime. And a lot of the popular circles, they’re doing it on the side of their real jobs, 100% self-funded, with no support from any company/publisher, unlike actual mangaka, no matter how small or minor they are (there is a likeliness they receive a small salary if they aren’t free lance and attached to a publisher, regardless of sales made, though of course royalties also apply). 

Even people like Matsuyoshi Aco (JULIA) and Kyuugou/kokonotsu (OAZUKE), whilst being professional mangaka in the industry, are doing their fan works on the side, with no support from their main job whatsoever. If anything, if they were unlucky, they would probably get flack from their main job for doing fan doujins (hence why a lot of mangaka use different aliases for fanworks).

And printing these books costs a lot of money. A lot. Let’s just say I looked it up for my own purposes, and even at the cheapest place (which may mean compromised quality) it costs around 12,000yen to print 50 copies of a 24page doujinshi. All most of these artists hope for is to break even - they don’t price their doujins very expensively either, usually just enough to cover costs/costs of the event. An average 24p-30p doujin tends to sit around 400-500yen per book. Speaking of event cost, I calculated that the public transport from Ikebukuro to Tokyo Big Sight costs approximately 1000yen, circle fees are 5000yen for one table (so big circles with 2 tables could be paying something like 10000yen including all their extra chairs), and nvm food consumption which is approximately 1000yen maybe if you’re frugal. They need to sell at least 14 books to make up for the cost of participating alone. And if you don’t ship a major pairing? If it’s your first time participating and you don’t have a lot of people who are willing to give you a shot? Man, that 14 books may not even be an easy sell.

Going by my hypothetical calculation on a 24p doujin, sold at 400yen, 12000+7000=19000, 19000/400 = 47.5. This hypothetical doujinka needs to sell 48 books to break even. And she’s only printed 50. And we know she’s not going to sell all 50, she’s going to probably give away 10-15 to friends, or swap them for other people’s works. Which means from the start, this hypothetical doujinka already can’t break even. 

Oh hey, I forgot to mention that some don’t even LIVE in Tokyo - A good friend of mine, akane (trickstar) lives in Osaka, Peririko (POW!) lives in Kumamoto (which is in Kyuushu) and they have to fly/take the shinkansen to Tokyo to participate in the bigger events. Let’s not even talk about how expensive that is, because we all know that none of them are thinking of losing money there since it’s fun for them to do events and meet their friends - it’s the same reason we all attend conventions after all.

One of my friends, who also has a tumblr here (her username is tomato425​), only printed about 30 copies of her books at the event I met her at in May, and she gave about half away to her friends. I’m pretty sure she participated at a loss, but she was happy to share her art and stories even if that was the case, and to meet more people with common interests and experience the fun of participating as a circle. And that’s the case for a lot of doujinkas. They just want to share their works with people, and they’re doing this out of their own very limited free time, funding it with their own pockets. It’s something they do for fun.

What scanlation groups, especially when it comes to doujins are doing, is essentially stepping on the good will of these doujinkas who work hard to share their creativity, and maybe to make a tiny bit of pocket money if they plan well financially. To top it off, there is never any consent seeked by them from the doujinkas to distribute their work on the internet, regardless of whether it’s in print or out of print. Maybe if they did and were granted permission, it’d be an entirely different story, but as I can already tell you, the back of every fucking doujinshi says ‘Unauthorised reprinting, redistribution or reselling via net auction is prohibited’ on them. In fact sometimes, these doujinka even put the effort into trying to write it in English.

I think the most frustrating part of scanlation groups is knowing that there are people who know a work is out because they follow their favourite doujinka, but won’t purchase it and request that these groups scanlate them? Like with that Eyes on me release by oshix3, it was obvious from the ask vibes that people knew it was a thing, but rather than buy a copy and then wait for a translation, they decide to just wait for a ~free~ scanlation so they don’t have to spend on it. A free scanlation which again, I would like to remind you, is not authorised by the doujinka. In fact, her pixiv profile even states this in English. Though it’s not like scanlation groups need that, because hey, THEY CAN READ JAPANESE, so obviously they already knew prior to that.

I’m just kind of mad because after talking to Peririko, I was greeted with this private message, after I assisted her in taking her doujin off the scanlation group. I’m just going to translate the most relevant part.

私はあまり神経質な性格ではないので、無断転載や、ネットオークションの転売などされてもツイッターに晒すなどの公表はせず、無視のかたちをとってきました。(それでいちいち嫌な気持ちになりたくなかったからです。)
ですが、本当はやめてもらいたいけどなァと、モヤモヤしておりました。

“I’m not a very sensitive person, so up until now I have never made a public comment or announcement on twitter etc. in regards to reprints and net auctions, and chose to ignore it happening (I didn’t want to get upset at every little single thing whenever I saw it). Even so, it doesn’t change the fact that the truth is I always wanted this to stop, and that it makes me sad.”

Honestly, I really do get it. I get that it’s hard to buy doujinshi, and they go out of print so fast because of the limited copies. I get that it’s expensive, because mailorder is always more expensive because of the cut mail order companies like toranoana/c-queen/k-books/melonbooks etc takes, thus meaning doujinka raise the prices on their works to make the same amount. I get that a lot of people can’t read Japanese and would love an English version. 

I get it all, I really do. Because once upon a time I indulged in it too - I’m not unguilty. But I also wised up. I realised it was wrong. I realised what we were doing is stealing. They have every right to say no to sharing their works in English. You might think you’re self entitled to do so, to share their works with more people, but you’re wrong. They may not want it to be shared overseas. It may have never been their intention. How can you call yourself a real fan if you can’t even respect the wishes of these people, especially when it’s written in black and white?

Tumblr’s gotten to a point where so many people share things about asking for permission to reprint artwork on tumblr and what not, but why are these same people that reblog every one of these rants happily lapping up scanlations as if the same thing doesn’t apply?

I’ll just leave this long ass rant as it is. I’m not particularly seeking any kind of witch hunt on scanlation groups, I’m just expressing my dislike towards the activity and the lack of respect that’s given to people who spend their free time and money to share their creativity and stories with us for fun.

Hi everyone, 

I’d hate to make this a sappy post so I’ll try to keep it really quick and short.

I’m thinking about putting an ad on my blog just to make a little bit of money, I’m moving out and starting Uni next year and my family isn’t in the best financial department, so I guess any little bit of extra money really helps. 

Sorry if it’ll be annoying or anything, if you don’t want to see it you can download a web browser extension for free called AdBlock. 

Thanks to anyone who read this!
