this was my first ever commission

I commissioned a set of adorable NDRV3 Animal Crossing style characters from @shiny-jolteons! I’m really happy, they came out incredibly adorable ;;;! (Also, here’s their commission info if anyone’s interested too: Click!)
Thank you so much once again! It’s a pleasure commissioning from you.

Things you should / shouldn’t do when provided with a commission quote out of your budget:

  • “Oh, that’s out of my budget I’m afraid! Thank you for your time.”

DON’T

  • “I know X artists who are cheaper”
  • “Ouch, uh, that’s too expensive / you’re too costly”
  • “I got this piece and it’s better than what you made for X amount and I think it’s worth more than that but I only paid X”
  • “Your art isn’t that good”
  • “You should base your prices off of people on Deviantart rather than industry”

Hey fellas, so, i had a little bit of an accident last week. I jumped off my loft bed, landed on one foot, and totally obliterated my ankle. I can’t stand on it, walk on it, and it’s fifty different shades of purple and red right now. I can’t afford to go to the doctors or even pay for anything right now so i’m doing emergency commissions until it heals up (and hopefully sooner rather than later.) 

My email is dancristaldi@gmail.com if you’re interested, otherwise you can pm me on tumblr.  

For both waist ups and busts any additional characters are $5. 

I’m not comfortable with drawing any gore, shota, non-con, furries (or animals in general i can’t draw them well but i do know someone who can so if you’re interested in animals pm me and i’ll link you to a rad friend of mine) i think that’s the general gist. 

Thank you guys for taking the time to read this!

A beautiful Western-style Ignoct by the very talented @he1chousart. She is the first artist I’ve ever commissioned and I am SO SO happy with this piece! ❤️ (she’ll be doing a sexy Ardyn for me in the near future, so stay tuned 😏). She brought my vision for this to life! Look at Ignis in his vests 😆 (I’m a sucker for well dressed men).

the AMAZING @lorna-ka just sent me the result of my commission, and I’m absolutely blown away!!!! ever since I first saw this ballgown design for Asajj (from the unaired episodes of tcw) I knew right away I wanted to see her draw it. and I’m not at all disappointed!!

thank you so much again for this gorgeous piece, lorna. 💕I can’t wait to hang it on my wall!!!!

If you guys weren’t tired of seeing her yet, you probably are now.  This is now the fourth Cerea plushie I’ve ever made.  This little lady is now tied with Peacock from Skullgirls for character I’ve made the most plushies of.  However, you eagle eyed followers may have noticed that there is ANOTHER Cerea further down on my commission list.  Soon this character will be my most plushed character.  You guys really love her and your dedication is astonishing!

I wanna take a quick aside here to announce that for the first time ever COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED!  You guys have been so good to me in the last few months of 2016 that my commission list is running wild and out of control!  So, I decided to close commissions for a bit just to get a bit more caught up on it.  COMMISSIONS RE-OPEN MARCH 1ST 2017.  So don’t you guys worry, I won’t be gone for long.  I won’t be able to catch up on my list completely in that time, but I just wanted to get a good chunk of it out of the way.  I hope any of you who want to commission can be patient until then!

Anyhow, I hope you guys had a great holiday season, a great end of last year and a great beginning of this year!  I look forward to making all your waifus in 2017, no matter how trash they may be ;P

Cerea is a commission for Stalmos on Etsy!

phew! so, there’s a lot to say but i’m not going to ramble on if i can help it. this is probably my first comic commission ever, for a very patient (and regular) commissioner over email! i’m not happy with how long it took for me to get it done, considering i should have planned my holiday better (forgot my laptop charger when i went home for christmas), and kept a better hold on the files as a whole page was lost at one point.

the point of this comic was to address an interesting dream – the text for it is word for word what was told to me by the commissioner! (what i’m saying is damn don’t they have a way with words) another point of this was to play with dimensions, reality and space. 

overall, this was a good project for me to work on, and i’m more than happy for this experience. hope you all enjoy it as much as i did making it!

SO! I’m going to be opening commissions this week, because life has gone to total shit. For the first time ever I’m going to be offering Comic Pages as a commission option, so here’s an example of that!

This was really fun to draw, take a look at it in full-res, there are lots of little details <3

A Day of Firsts

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything, so why not procrastinate on homework.

So I have this headcanon that Rhys is super kinky af and Feyre is more than willing to experiment. (Note: I also think it’s a very healthy kinkiness, with nothing forced [because Rhys, duh]).

Rating: T (NSFW-ish)

———————

It had already been a day of firsts when I finally made my way home that night. 

In the morning, I sold my first painting since the opening of my very own gallery. As luck would have it, the Fae buyer was so intrigued with my work, he decided he wanted more. That’s how I secured my first ever commissioned painting. When I went to a celebratory lunch with Mor, we decided to try out a place we had never been to. The food was some of the best I had ever had. Needless to say, I was in a wonderful mood when I winnowed into the townhouse foyer that night.

“Rhys?” I called out as I removed my favorite boots. The house was surprisingly quiet; normally at this hour, our inner circle would be lounging about in different parts of our home.

“Upstairs, Darling” Rhys spoke into my mind. With my eyebrows raised, I made my way up the stairs leading to our room. Knowing Rhys, he had some sort of surprise waiting for me - which could be good or bad. I peeked into the room, and found my mate lounging on our bed with an amused smirk. I let out a small sigh of relief that the surprise was not a negative one.

“I have a preposition for you” he purred, and immediately I was back on my guard. Last time he had a preposition for me, I ended up having to paint a sexy portrait of Cassian. My dear mate had lost a bet, and Cassian picked a punishment he knew would piss Rhysand off. Rhys stood by for the entire painting, mumbling under his breath about his stupid Illyrian brother. Of course, my reward was my husband taking extra care of me in our bedroom later that night. Still, the image of Cassian’s self satisfied smirk made me gag.

“What is it?” I asked cautiously. Rhys’ smile only widened at the apprehension in my voice. He stood up slowly, strolling over to where stood in the doorway. His arms wrapped around my middle, pulling me close so he could press soft kisses to my neck.

“I’m feeling quite…experimental tonight” He cooed against my skin. Immediately heat pooled in my core. We had just recently begun exploring the use of…objects in the bedroom. I was a bit squeamish about the subject, and thus never brought up my curiosity to Rhys. One day we were in the lingerie shop when he spied a blindfold. He looked at me with a questioning look, and I nodded shyly. Thus, the experimenting began.

“And what” I purred, nipping at his ear, “are you exactly in the mood for?”

“ Hmm…” He hummed, letting his hands roam lower on my body. “I was thinking using this” he finished, pulling out a strip of silk. My eyes narrored in question, and he chuckled to himself. 

“I’m wondering, darling, if you’re interested in me tying your hands” he whispered. He allowed me time to think it over, kissing me softly along my collarbone. I took my sweet time deciding, torturing him with the wait. He looked to my face, and slowly smiled, nodding my approval.

“What shall our safe word be this week?” he said, turning me toward the bed.

Before I could stop myself, I blurted out “Cassian!” and burst into a fit of giggles. Rhys’ face fell, completely unamused.

“I’ll make you pay for that one, you wicked thing” he growled, pushing me onto the bed. I continued my laughing, until his mouth crashed into mind, effectively silencing me. I began to tear at his clothes, and with a growl he pulled our of my grasp to strip his finery off himself. I quickly shed my leggings and sweater, left only with a midnight blue set of lace. He stood there, telling me with a simple look that we had yet to come up with a safe word. 

“Our safe word will be cabin” I purred. He finally stepped back into my reach, and I greedily grabbed onto him. He pulled me closer to him and moved our bodies closer to the headboard. 

“Are you sure about this?” He whispered, pausing to look deeply into my eyes. I held my hands up to him, urging him to move forward. He took my hands gently into his, and kissed each one gently. The silk reappeared, and he bound my hands firmly. He brought them to the headboard and secured them to the polished wood.

“Give it a pull” he ordered, and I pulled. I wasn’t going anywhere.

“Good” He smiled devilishly, and then disappeared. My mouth flew open, but then I thought it must be part of his play. So I waited. And waited. And waited. My strong Fae ears picked up on the sound of a page turning downstairs. Suddenly, I realized what had happened.

“Rhysand!” I yelled “Get your sorry ass up here!” I could hear his laughter travel up the stairs.

Maybe next time, Feyre, you will pick a different safe word.He laughed into my mind.

“You prick!” I hissed back. Another page turned. It seemed he’d be taking his time finishing his novel.

Oh, he would pay for this. He would pay for it big time.

“It’ll be worth it. I promise.”

You ever wonder what finally drove McCree away from Gabe?

I’m going to take that ‘hugging’ thing you mentioned, @zainyrain, with a generous dose of salt. And by salt I mean the salt provided by the tears I shed when I think about these two.

The very first commission request for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe donation drive I’m holding for a limited time.
