your skill level is too low

thegooddariusart  asked:

Your prices are way too low for the quality of your art

*takes a couple of deep breaths*

You know…without fail, every time I open I get both sides of this. Some people say I am way too low, others think I am full of myself for my prices. The truth is, I’m never gonna make everyone happy. I thought long and hard about this time, I did a lot of research into people I feel are on my skill-level. I looked at how long projects take me, and I increased my prices, some by 20% more than the last time. As I get better they’ll go up, but I’m pretty comfortable with what I’m charging at the moment. 

I know you and all the other (caring) people are looking out for me and other artists in the community by making sure we charge what we’re worth, and I thank you for that. I genuinely feel good about my range this time, however, and I think it’s fair for the quality of what I can produce at this current moment in my journey.

Incantations: Powerful Magic, At A Cost...

Incantations are like spells, but they can be cast by characters who are not spellcasters.

This variant enables characters who know the correct ritual gestures and phrases for an incantation to achieve powerful magic effects.

Incantations don’t use spell slots, you don’t have to prepare them ahead of time, and you can use an incantation an unlimited number of times per day.

Incantations have drawbacks: They’re time-consuming to cast, and success isn’t assured.

They are often expensive, and some require additional participants to complete the ritual.

Some incantations work only under certain specifi c conditions, such as during a full moon.

Most important among the drawbacks, an incantation rarely fades away quietly if the caster fails to perform the ritual correctly.

Instead it reverses itself on the caster, explodes with a cascade of magical energy, or weakens the barrier between worlds, enabling hostile outsiders to emerge onto the Material Plane.

This variant gives a measure of magical power to non-spellcasters, but the incantations themselves are usually too specific in effect to increase a character’s power in the general sense.

Because many incantations require academic skills such as Knowledge, the characters best equipped to cast them are often spellcasters anyway.

Incantations provide a useful way to introduce powerful magical effects in a lower-level game under controlled conditions.

PCs will still use spells rather than expensive, risky incantations whenever they can.

Incantations are also more specific than spells, so the DM can introduce them into the game without worrying that they’ll spread beyond the immediate situation.

If you want characters in your low-level game to take a brief sojourn to Ysgard, you can introduce the incantation Hrothgar’s journey.

Because it requires the construction of a thatched hut in the middle of a forest and works only during the winter solstice, you don’t have to worry about the characters exploring the Outer Planes whenever they get the urge.

If you gave low-level PCs easy access to the plane shift spell, on the other hand, they could wander the planes until they ran afoul of the first outsider more powerful than they are (which is almost any outsider).

The Lazy Bastard’s Guide to Beating Rune Prana.

So this post is basically a somewhat short guide for those out there who, like me, did not have their shit together in this game but still want to get the best ending without having to kill themselves.

Hello there,… you! Tell me, would you like to beat the third arc of Rune Factory 4? You would? Well, let me ask you a few questions: Are your crafting and forging levels at at least 80? If not, did you know you can use the Heart Pendant to make yourself gain skill exp just a liiiiiittle faster? Is Frey/Lest at least level 130? Do you have equips that boost your stats into the thousands? Specifically, do you have equips such as Diamond Brooch, Wet Boots, and Rosary? Do you have the most holy and almighty and revered crafting items, the Racoon Leaves and Glitta Augite? Did you go to Sharance Maze and run around endlessly until you picked up high level weapons?

…No? Well… you are aware that this is the advice everyone will give you, correct? You must be frustrated. Everywhere you go, these are the only things anyone will tell you. And none of it’s working, and you know why. Because you don’t have the time or patience to get your crafting skills that high, even with the Heart Pendant. Because you’re at a low level because you keep dying in dungeons and potions are too expensive and you’re trying to save food items for the really hard parts of the game. You’re too poor to afford good equips, and not motivated enough to make them. Racoon Leaves and Glitta Augites are a mystery; even if you know where to get them, you can’t use them because once again, your crafting levels suck. You may or may not have Sharance Maze, but it’s a confusing place for you.


I’M SERIOUS. Here’s how it works: 

  • You’re going to use those 3000 Prince(ss) points to open up Sharance Maze, and guess what? You’re going to run around a bunch! Yes, this will be slightly annoying, but if you’re worried about dying you can take some party members with you. I hope you at least have a fairy rescued from a previous dungeon and the wolf from Sechs Territory to distract enemies. Now I’ll admit, this is basically the hardest part. Since you know you will die easily even with party members, you’re going to be warping out and then running right back in a lot. 
  • But the point of that is this: not to find good weapons, but first and foremost items. And not food either. The Love Potion and Object X you need can be found when you run around Sharance Maze, and they show up fairly often. I came across like 4 of each fairly easily, but you’ll only need one Love Potion and maybe 2 or 3 Object Xs.
  • First thing first: once you’ve got that Love Potion, WARP HOME AND SAVE ASAP. Next, find yourself a Dark Fairy. They’re large and purple. Now, you can also use Princess points to display enemy HP and Level, so I suggest you do that so that you know you’re nabbing a high-leveled one. This little trick worked on the first try for me. All you gotta do is find a Dark Fairy (in Sharance Maze of course, shoot for one that’s near level 300) and just chuck that potion at her! She (no pun intended) loves it to bits, and will gladly join you. Her stats? Through the fuckin roof. She’s twice as powerful as Venti. Yeah that’s right.
  • Next: do you have a dish called Grilled Snapper? Check your fridge: if you don’t have one there, don’t panic. They aren’t that hard to get, because if you’re pals with Porcoline, he gives you one on your birthday! There’s also a chance Porcoline may sell this dish at his restaurant, but I think to cook it you need to be level 51 on cooking, which you probably aren’t. No biggie. At the most, you just have to wait till your next birthday. ONCE YOU GET THE FISH DISH, SAAAAAAVE. Now this part oughta look familiar; guess where you’re going? That’s right, Sharance Maze again! Wheeeee! This time, your mission is to find a Minotaur King; (preferably near level 300) they’re super huge blue monster dudes that wear loincloths and carry frikkin huge axes. Scary. Go ahead and bring your Dark Fairy on this mission so she can help you fight/stay alive til ya find the big guy. Once you’ve found him, toss him the Grilled Snapper. Worked on the first try for me! This guy is just as suped-up as the Dark Fairy, but his physical attack is about 2k higher.

Wow, isn’t that amazing?! Now you’ve two extremely high-leveled party members! And guess what? That means pretty much everything from here is gonna be a cakewalk! …Well, except for a few more things, mostly regarding your equips. Don’t worry, it’s simple stuff.

  • Next is the Talisman. Now normally, this takes a crafting level of about 70 to make. And I have some good news and bad news. The good news is, you can get this item for free! …The bad news is, I’m not exactly sure if I remember where exactly I got it. But I’m pretty sure– like 90% sure– it comes from Margaret’s Event: A Performance Without an Audience. You can unlock this even if you play as a girl, so don’t worry. Anyways, complete that little event, and grab the Talisman. It will be a lifesaver when you get to places where you get poisoned. Since the Talisman reverses status effects, the icon above your head will say you’re poisoned, but it’ll actually be healing you. So once you get this thing, be sure to always have it in your inventory, especially for the Beach Area of Rune Prana and the Cave Area.
  • Now, for the strangest item on this list; that’s right, the bottle(s) of oil. You’ve got the Object X, right? Maybe even more than one? Good, because here we go. See, in various parts of Rune Prana, especially early on, there are some: enemies that throw powerful fireballs, a volcano area where some maps deal constant fire damage, and even some flame-shooting pillars and, at one point, a literal ring of fire that can and probably will instant death you. That’s where object X and Oil come in. Here’s how it works: If you look at the description of Oil, you’ll see it says “-31 resistance to fire”. Meaning, your fire resistance goes down about 30 percent if you use this in item upgrading. HOWEVER, Object X makes this a good thing! Why? Because, when used as an upgrading tool, Object X will REVERSE the effects of EVERY SUBSEQUENT ITEM USED TO UPGRADE AN EQUIP.  Meaning, you can take an equip of your choice, and where you would usually upgrade it with an item like a gem or root or whatever, put Object X instead! Then, you can upgrade the equip yet again with the Oil, thereby RAISING your fire resistance!  BEWARE, THIS IS IRREVERSIBLE. THE EFFECT OF OBJECT X AS A REVERSER WILL PERMANENTLY PERSIST ON ALL FUTURE UPGRADES OF THIS ITEM.  Anyways, I went ahead and applied this to my Platinum Mail and my hat, bringing my fire resistance up to over 60. It has literally saved my life.

Once that is done, you’re ready for Rune Prana! You’ll be impervious to poison, damn near impervious to fire, and you have two powerhouses who will quite literally be fighting all your battles for you. (Heads up, you can ride the Minotaur if you want to control him, and he’ll take all the damage so you don’t die super fast).

As far as actually getting through the floors/puzzles and such, there are other guides for that. Bring plenty of food/potions, and remember to save often. Hope you like being the healer, ‘cause that’s pretty much your job now!


So, past months, I’ve switched from League of Legends to Heroes of the Storm, and I’ve been asked multiple times why. My main reason is the community, but I’ll explain a little bit of both games.

League of Legends VS Heroes of the Storm

  1. League of legends has a bigger champion selection in comparison to Heroes of the Storm(Currently: LoL:136 HoS:68)

  2. Assigned Classes:
    Tank, Fighter, Slayer, Mage, Controller, Marksman
    HotS: Assassin, Warrior, Support, Specialist

  3. In Heroes of the Storm there’s no such thing as “broken Champs”.

  4. Laning:
    LoL:Top, Jungle, Mid and Bot(Bot is always Controller and Marksman)
    HotS:Top and Bot are Standard, In most Maps there is Mid too, there is no Jungle.

  5. Playstyle:
    Just smash everything in your way, get dragons, don’t solo, farm. Players mostly depend on themselves to grow strong, and shop for items to get more agressive, defensive or supportive. Each Level equals a skill upgrade. Main Goal: Destroy the Nexus.
    HotS: Every map has tasks, if you’re not going to play as a Team, the chances you are going to win are really low, since you need your whole team for the tasks,in most occasions. XP is shared, you don’t need to be the one to kill the enemy,XP is shared anyway, both from farming and kills. Farming does not need last hits, even if you just stand next to them when they die you get XP, though I would not suggest that. There’s no shop, no items. Instead of items, you use talents. Talents can be skill, upgrades, shields, teleports, skill enhancers, cooldowns, pretty much everything, depending on champion. You get to pick talents up to 7 times in the game. Pick them strategically, depending on your enemies and their talent choises. Main Goal: Destroy the Nexus (There’s not only one way.) You can use camps to help you fight your cause.

  6. Battlefields in Ranked:
    LoL: 1
    Hots: 13
    (Each has different tasks, pick heroes, strategically)

  7. Community:
    LoL: Personally, I think League has the most unhealthy community. It’s a rare occasion not to come across a flamer. If you decide to just mute them all and enjoy the game, there’s high chance you’ll notice people dying in the middle of the battlefield, just because some player was typing an angry text to another. There’s also excess trolling and intentional feeding.
    Hots: Community
    is really nice most times, XP is shared so there’s no such thing as “You m&!@*&f*&^^r stole my kill I’m gonna troll”. Most of times chat is full of strategic advices, like ex1: Let’s take this camp. or ex2: You should go for task, I’m going to keep them away.

  8. Game Rewarding System & Gifts.
    I am not one of those people who spend money on skins, boosts etc. It’s not that I don’t like them, I only think it is not worth it. I’d better buy a whole new game. So this is a really important factor to me.
    LoL and Hots: In game Currency & XP for Champions & your Account.
    In Heroes of the Storm Chanpion XP is really important. You can level up to 20 times a hero in total. Each time you level up you are gifted a Loot Box. Loot Boxes contain: Champions, Champion Skins, Mounts, Voice Lines, Announcers, Banners, Sprays, Emojis, Portraits, Stimpacks, Shards and Gems (These are in Game currency you have to buy with real money to get). Each Lootbox contains 4 mystery items that can be anything from the above. If you’re not happy with what you get the first time you can change the Loot Box with another one for in game currency, you get from playing the game. Loot Boxes can be Regular, Rare, Epic and Veteran. The greater the Loot Box the greater the gifts. Skins are not rare at all, even new and expensive ones. Even if you’ve leveled up all Champions to maximum, there are new champions coming very often, and there are also special events & brawl modes(each week) that give you Loot boxes.
    In League of Legends you get one Hextech Chest each week, but you have to win it over (Your Performance has to be of an S-, S or S+ ). In order to open it you need to get 3 Hextech key shards and combine them to make a key. Hextech Chests can stack up to 4, if you don’t get to open them in time. Hextech Chests give you Champion Essence, Cosmetic Essence, Champion Shard(which you can buy with Champion Essence), Skin Shard(which you can buy with Cosmetic Essence). If you don’t want the Skin or Champion Shard you can descend them into the Essence of their category. Skin and Champ Shards may need more or less Essence than others depending on their price or rarity.

    Hope this was helpful to anyone interested. This are just the basics in my opinion and not the whole games in depth. There are more features in both games. 
    Hope you have a great day♥
Tip: Acknowledging Our Flaws

You know what I realised lately? I’m not a very good writer. No, seriously, I’m pretty shitty. Hey, I’m great at coming up with good stories. I have a good handle on character arcs and theme. I’m not too shabby with dialogue either. But when it comes to the actual writing part, my skill level is still very low. Better than it was in high school, but nowhere near the level it needs to be. But it’s ok. Because I can still get there.

It’s ok to admit our faults. We’re not going to get any better by ignoring them. But it’s ok to also admit what we’re good at. Maybe you’re great at action scenes, but not so great at emotion.

Maybe you write great heroes but your villains feel a little two dimensional. Knowing where you need to improve isn’t about beating yourself up, its about improvement.

So if you need to address your flaws and weaknesses in writing, don’t forget your strengths.

Hi I left a comment on your fic about nami and tulin meeting and I still feel strongly about the potential energy of their friendship thanks for the good work I believe in you

Gaaaah I’m gonna have to write more for these two!! So I wrote their first meeting but gosh darn it they’re going to have many adventures together I can feel it in my bones. 

Quick note considering my last prompt: at any time frame where Nami refers to Link by his name instead of Papa, it is before Link and Sidon get married. 

Link and Sidon are dating by this point~ :D 

Nami shivered and took a deep breath through her mouth. 

She was learning quickly that she hated the cold.

Sure, winters in the Domain could get rough, especially when the waters froze over but class wasn’t canceled because the waters were still swimmable. But cold water and cold air were too entirely different things, especially at high altitudes. 

But it was the furthest Minami had also traveled as well, and when Dad was sent to meet with the elder of the Rito at the same time that Link was tasked to rendezvous with the Champion of Vah Medoh, they both saw it as an opportunity for Nami to see another part of the world that she hadn’t been to before.

Of course, for two Zora to traverse all the way to the Tabantha Frontier, extensive preparations and precautions needed to be taken. Dad and Minami were both outfitted with thick parkas and special insulated armor. It was also the first time Nami had worn pants and shoes and she had to admit that Daddy looked really silly in boots and mitten with the end of his tail tucked under a scarf. 

But the biggest thing Nami was having trouble with, however, was how the clothes she now wore made it hard for her to breathe since her gills were covered underneath several layers. Dad and Link kept telling her to breath through her mouth, but that was much easier said than done and hard to get used to.

“Sweetheart, are you alright?” Dad asked, turning back to her as she climbed the rest of the way up the hill. “Do you want me to carry you?”

“No, I’m okay,” Nami insisted. She had made it this far, why stop now?

I was scrolling through my old photos on my phone, and I had almost totally forgot about this one. So here’s a little behind the scenes action for you, a step-by-step guide on how to achieve the Robin Argyle cosplay/special occasions body, below the break:

  • Step 1- Panties and some form of sheer tights. Neither of these need to be cute, no one’s going to see them. (If you are a person who needs to tuck, do so in this step.)
  • Step 2- Insert hip pads/butt pads under the tights. If they look a little wonky or lumpy right now, that’s fine. If you’re aiming for curves for days, remember your pads are going to be constricted a bit during the next few steps, and will look smaller than they do now. Go ahead and put your bra and breast forms on now, if you have/need them.
  • Step 3- Corset. I go for a 4″ reduction because I loooove the look, and I use a steel boned cincher for low level waist training. The important part is that it’s relatively smooth, so textures won’t show through your clothes. Also, depending on your skill level you may need a friend for this. (Hell, I can corset myself and I still ask for help. Friends make sure you won’t lace too tightly and pass out in a hallway.)
  • Step 4- Put on your nude Spanx/body shaper. I use a combination upper thigh/waist shaper, but with the corset you may not need one that focuses on waist shaping. I just like this one because the straps keep it from falling down and needing adjustment all day.
  • Step 5- Put on your first pair of opaque tights. You want these to match your skintone as closely as possible. I wear Danskins in Light toast myself, but there are a lot of options. The goal in this step is to cover your hip pads and the shaper, since there are probably a lot of colors on your legs right now.
  • Step 5.5- If you can still see your hip pads (mine are a light green, made of couch foam), put on your second pair of opaque tights, same color as the first pair. Keep in mind each layer of tights will make your lower half much warmer, but they’ll also tone your legs, thighs, and butt.
  • Step 6- Don’t forget to add cute panties if you want them. You don’t need them, but if you’re wearing something short you don’t want people to potentially see your smooth barbie doll crotch.

And that’s the basics for my foundation garments! I of course add details depending on what I’m wearing (dark hose, colored tights, different bras depending on how large I want my bust to be.), so remember this is the shape and basic nude illusion that you’ll start with before you start tailoring your costume, or choose what to wear to your shoot/drag performance/meeting your bae’s parents or pets, whatever.

I hope this surprise lesson helps you out! Feel free to share if you have anyone you think may benefit from the tips! Stay cool as a particularly cool animal of your choosing, lovelies~

How to Create an Awesome Patio in The Sims 4

The Perfect Outdoor Oasis

If you’ve opened up the Gallery, you’ve likely seen some amazing creations, from absurd mansions to mind-bending homes. And we often see the same question: how do they do that?! That’s what inspired us to invite members of the community to teach you how they build the amazing things you can find on the Gallery.

Today, we wanted to show off ways to upgrade and improve your Sim’s outdoor patio! We invited popular builder Deligracy to write up some tips on creating a beautiful outdoor patio in The Sims 4. Below is her guide*.

Hello! I’m going to teach you how to make a beautiful outdoor patio adorned with cascading greenery. It’s a little bit fancy and uses some stuff from The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff Pack**!

When creating any kind of build I always aim to be experimental in order to come up with a unique outcome. For this patio, I make use of the “Move Objects cheat” which allows me to overlap and intersect objects. You’ll need to turn this on before we start. Turn it on by typing ctrl-shift-c, then entering “bb.moveobjects”. Press enter.

Step One: Start to create the shape. Make an Octagonal shape to this size an increase the foundation to a suitable height. Add flooring with an outdoorsy feel, as well as fencing. It’s good to match the colors of these. Finally pop in some stairs at the front with a width of two steps.

Step Two: Grab an awning. I like this awning from The Sims 4 Get Together Expansion Pack. Repeat the awning to create another Octagonal shape (use the ‘>’ keys to rotate) with the columns facing outwards, we want our space to be as big as possible!

Step Three: Start creating the interior. Use a glass table and again, repeat the table to create an Octagonal shape. Glass works best or dark colors to ensure there is no visual glitches during gameplay. This allows us to create a rounded table for Sims to eat at! This technique works well with coffee tables too.

Step Four: Decorate with chairs. To add a little of the vintage trend, I’m picking a selection of mismatched chairs. Place these around your table, they will snap to the tables as you place them.

Step Five: Light it up. It’s all about the hanging lights! Place your favorite hanging lights over the table, I promise this will look amazing at the end! You can change the colors of them during live mode to create a beautiful ambience at night fall.

Step Six: Decorate the rest! I’m adding a BBQ and planters, as well as the base game vintage tea set, flowers and some yummy treats, this patio is going to be great for entertaining. Skill building objects such as an easel, chess table and yoga mat could work too depending on what you want to use it for.

Step Seven: Bring it all together. Turn your grid on and move up a level. Draw the low fencing in any pattern over your placed awnings. Delete any floor tiles, then adorn the top of the patio with shrubbery. I personally like to size up a base game shrub using the bracket key (]) to cover my patios.

Step Eight: Add the final details. Ta-dah! Here is a gorgeous, vine-covered patio with hanging lights. I added some draped curtains from the Movie Hangout Stuff Pack, just to be a little fancier!

anonymous asked:

Do you think you need a certain age to begin an art blog?

Hey anon! 

This is kind of a hard question, it really depends on the person. I think you can start posting your art as long as you understand these key things:

  • You have to be able to take criticism, in particular constructive criticism, and not take it as an attack on you and your art. And if it isn’t constructive, you have to be able to not take it personally, and shrug it off. There can be a lot of mean people out there who don’t take into consideration how young/inexperienced an artist is before commenting on their work, which can be pretty damaging to younger artists.
  • You need to understand that if your art “isn’t popular” or doesn’t get a lot of notes doesn’t mean you’re a bad artist. A lot of people get caught up in how popular they are and it can be discouraging. But you just gotta keep pushing, draw what you like and keep improving. You’ll become more well known over time and as your art improves.
  • You gotta know what’s considered plagiarism. I’ve seen a lot of young artists innocently copy other people’s art not knowing it’s stealing (most commonly seen when somebody makes a character design that is waaaay too similar to somebody else’s). Even if you’re not purposely plagiarizing, if it’s bad enough, it could potentially hurt your reputation, or even get you kicked off the site.
  • Likewise, you need to know your rights as an artist. You gotta be able to recognize when someone is stealing from you, or trying to take advantage of you (asking for commissions with exposure as payment, others selling your art without permission), or even when you’re setting yourself up to be taken advantage of (underselling your art, which hurts the rest of the artist community too), and you need to know how to handle these situations, which can be very stressful.

All these things require a certain level of maturity to understand, especially being able to take criticism. When I was around 13/14/15 my self esteem was pretty low, and I think if I’d tried posting my stuff I wouldn’t have been able to handle critiques. But as long as you understand these things, I don’t think it matters what your skill level or age is. 

Ancient Tips & Tricks Of Football

1. It’s commonly accepted that a football game goes for 75 minutes over four quarters with extra time for tie-breakers in the form of sudden death shoot-out and, less commonly, strut offs. Note that the game goes for 75 minutes ONLY if each player is running at average speed for the normal amount of time. If all players walk or stand still, the game can last the full six hours laid out by the International Council of Football. Conversely, running extra fast can see the game completed in as little as 15 minutes. Use this to your advantage by training players to run incredibly swiftly.

2. It’s normal in football culture to loot the opposing team’s player after a good tackle, but a side who completes many good tackles in the first quarter can find themselves overburdened by as early as Luncheon Break. Leave gold and magical items on the field to collect at the end of the tournament, or designate one player “looter”. NB: don’t subscribe to any publications or have parcels delivered while on the field.

3. In some football cultures it’s considered offensive to touch the ball with your hands. Tape a basket to your torso for easy & secure ball handling. Level up Dexterity to raise the probability of getting the ball in the basket.

4. If play gets too rough, hold your arms out at right angles to your body and spin around on the spot to re-establish Personal Space.

5. During lulls in play collect grass and small pieces of litter in your pockets. This is an easy way to level up your Medicine skill tree. At low levels, use these items to treat afflictions like Jock Itch & Tinea. As you progress, make poultices & casts to set Broken Limbs and heal Torn Muscles.

6. Disorient opponents by getting a teammate to make a “zzzhhhhh” sound with their mouth while your drum on their back, creating a realistic “speedboat” effect which *should* confuse them long enough for you to score. TIP: this only works on teams under Level 20.

7. Wait until night, then gain entrance to clubhouse (Speech or Sneak check required). Locate Team Song. Replace it with a classic rap cut from Eminem or Snoop Dogg for a +5 Charisma Boost. Mashups are also cool. Its where there’s two songs playing at the same time, but they do it so they match up. It sounds f*cked up but its cool.

8. Pick a cheerleader. Use Speech until Flirt options become available. NB: do not target more than one cheerleader with Flirt-based interactions or they will become hostile. If they do, use the Personal Space move you learned earlier.

9. In Practise sessions, learn as many moves as you can. If you forget the moves, do the Practise again. You can do it as many times as you need. Also, each team member has a unique Swear Word you can unlock. TIP: in most cases you can equip Alcohol to learn it.

10. At the end of the game, wait until the end of the credits then exit the stadium via the North Tunnel and enter the Limousine that’s waiting. A randomly spawned gangster will offer you a “Mysterious Prize” to throw the next game. If you have Good Karma, the offer is a sting and you must Refuse to progress. If you have Bad Karma, you MUST take the money. Neutral characters may kill the gangster and take his place.

The first time Neo robs a bank without Roman, Roman treats it like it’s her first day of school. Like he gives her everything she’d need, and he’d double check everything while saying,

“You have your parasol? Good. Here’s 500 lien so that you can hire some low level mooks. If they don’t take you seriously cause you look like a little kid then make them take you seriously. It shouldn’t be too hard to knock over a bank in this town. But if something does go wrong, not that I doubt your skills, demand to speak with your lawyer first, plead the fifth, and don’t say another thing until I get there. And most importantly, have a fun.”

And as she walks away Roman says with a sigh, “Kids, they grow up so fast.”

Please respect writers. Writers are artists too.
Offering an amount that would get you ~200 words from a commissioner at a low rate for a 5000 word minimum story is pretty insulting. No writer will work for 0.05 CENTS per word in treasure.

Writers: Please don’t put up with this, you’re artists too and just as valid as those that work with visual art. Look into how other commissioners of your skill level price their writing and don’t fall for scams that’ll have you doing hours of research and writing for a pittance. If someone offers you an insultingly low amount instead of your rates, don’t feel as though you have to put up with it.

Commissioners: Please respect writers. You wouldn’t ask to pay a tiny fraction of the artists price for digital art, don’t expect to get away with asking the same from writers. Saying “well I got someone to write me a five thousand word story for way less than 200kt once” is no excuse.

Asserting that writers deserve a mere one twentieth of the median commission rate for similar work is downright insulting and you wouldn’t get away with doing it to other artists. Respect writers.
