Commissions: Commissions - On Hold by SweetDuke

Hey everyone! I know I haven't been very active, but this school year is a lot more hectic than I thought x_X All but two classes are studio-based, which means I have a project of some kind due in each class almost every week! If that wasn't bad enough, I got a "new" computer that somebody had made, but the dang thing didn't work, and when we finally got it to work my printer and scanner wouldn't recognize the computer (which is why I haven't been able to post anything but digital drawings lately).. and now the computer doesn't work again XD Yay for laptops at least! However, I do have tons of news if you all would like to listen, and I have some very important favors to ask of you, if you can.

:bulletgreen:First of all, thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes!!! It made me so happy! And thank you prettygirl456 for the points, and thanks to WanderingTempest for the premium membership! That was so sweet of you guys and I appreciate it so much :D

:bulletgreen:Also, I am sure some of you noticed but I did not post a one-year drawing on One-True-Lloyd's and my anniversary on :heart: November 11th :heart: , but please don't worry (I'm speaking to those of you who actually like it when I draw pictures of the two of us)! We are still as happy as can be and madly in love! Instead of a drawing, I've created this incredible, super awesome spectacular surprise for him that we are going to celebrate when he comes to visit me NEXT MONTH!!!! :love: :love: :love: But he can't know what it is yet, bwahahahaha! :love: But I assure everyone it will be FANTASTIC! And I will tell you all about it afterwards :D

:bulletgreen:I also want to point out that a deviantArtist was SUPER AWESOME and unknowingly came in to my work the other day and recognized my art hanging on the wall! :D Unfortunately I wasn't working that day, but RaeOfSunShine19 thank you and your family for buying from Cartridge World and hopefully next time you guys need cartridges I will be there! :D You can try asking for me and whoever is at the desk will tell you if I'm in or not, I'd love to say hi! :D

:star:Quick question as well, if I did a video showing my drawing process, would you be interested? If so, be sure to leave a comment. If enough people would like one, I'll do my best to make one :D

Now for some very important topics :
:bulletred: First of all, a friend of a friend is in a very tough spot right now. She hasn't got a lot of money and she has a baby to take care of.

:star:AS AN ADDED BONUS!!! My friend Korosu-Sienne and her friend Geovanni-Eklipz will match whatever you commission from CandyxCorex and will give you a drawing of your choice for FREE! So you're getting two or three pictures for the price of one! Here are the details to Korosu-Sienne's and Geovanni-Eklipz's side of the deal:
VERY VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE READI have a big favor to ask of all of you. A friend of mine is offering commissions
and if you can commission her, or spread the word, it would be a lot of help.
She's VERY talented and the commissions are cheap, it's a really good deal. She's in a tough spot right now, she's unemployed, her boyfriend is possibly in debt (as far as I remember, at least), and she has a baby due in just a few months. shes done everything she can to save money for the baby, but she's still worried she won't be able to afford everything it needs. Until she can get a job, commissions are all she can do. Any help you can give, by spreading the word or commissioning her yourself would be a HUGE help.
It's not much, since I'm not that good (and even worse, since I've been super depressed) but for anyone who commissions her (and tells me) I will match what Dani gives them (a sketch, digital drawing, etc) of their choice for free (although if y

:bulletred: Also, one of my friends, narusaku4everinlife is requesting help as well. Her grandfather who has been her main guardian, has been diagnosed with cancer. She is hoping to raise money to get her grandpa to the Cancer Treatment Center of America. She is doing commissions as well and her drawings are also very very cheap, but her artwork is gorgeous! She will draw anything you wish (I've commissioned her before and received several beautiful prints in the mail! :D) Her information can be found here: narusaku4everinlife.deviantart…
CANCER HELPHey guys, my grandpa has been diagnosed with cancer. For those of you who dont know, I live and have lived with my grandparents since I was born. You see my mom decided she wanted to keep smoking rather than keep her asmatic daughter. After that my mom divorced my dad and, not that I blame her he was a drunk, my brother and sister hated me because they thought the reason dad and mom split was because mom didnt want me. Well anyway to put it straight my grandpa IS my father. He has been here for me since day one. And now to see him like this, god it just kills me! I feel so worthless I cant do anything!
So for christmas I want to give him something, something more than a simple decrotively wrapped gift.
But to get this I need help. From all of you. My dA family.
I am holding commissions now ONLY to raise money to get my grandpa to the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Tulsa, OK.
If anyone is intrested please note me or comment on th

I know these are tough times economically speaking, but even if you could spread the word by putting these stories in your journal it would be a great help! Every little bit counts!

:bulletred: Now something that doesn't involve money! For one of my classes, I have to make a PSA addressing a country on a subject that is of importance to me. I decided to do mine on the overuse (and misusage) of the word "hate" in America, and the pledge to stop it. I know that I have used it in several unnecessary cases in the past, but I am pledging now to stop using it. Hate is a very serious word that only ensues violence and anger. I know many of us have made a bad habit of using the word for the smallest things, and we don't even think of it in a bad way, but we have got to remember it's true meaning and stop devaluing it. I mean, there's even a comedy series out called "I Hate My Teenage Daughter." Can you believe that? That's not funny. When I was a teenager, if I heard my parent say that,… I don't know what I'd do…

So, all I am asking is a small favor to be a part of a (hopefully) big collaboration. If you have free time and a camera, could you film some fake scenarios and reenactments for me? They do not have to be edited, and they only have to be a few seconds long each. If you have the time, please send a short clip of an ACTED OUT SCENE that YOU recorded that reflects anger or sadness in some way. Friends fighting, parents arguing, a child sitting in front of a TV, anything like that. But please, remember this must be a fake scene that you staged yourself. I do not want to encourage real violence or hate.

:star:If you do choose to participate, please start your clip by saying "My name is ___ and this is for Evay's project" before you act it out. You can use your dA name instead of your real name if you'd like. Then please send the short video file to with the subject "PSA". It doesn't matter if it's low quality or if the acting isn't great, I just need all the help I can get AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!! I know Thanksgiving is coming up, but the deadline for video submission will be DECEMBER 2ND! Remember, I just need short clips, so any little thing will help. Just make sure there is no nudity and no real violence!
(If you'd also like to make a pledge to stop using the word "hate" as well, you can do so at… ! )

Thank you to everyone who has read all of this! :) It means so much to me! To reward you, here are some examples of what I've been doing for my classes lately :D
(This is incomplete. I've done a lot more work on it since this screencap and I'm almost done with it, and it will be printed out using a 3D printer and will be put together in a large piece that will be in an art show! I'm using Rhino3D and this was all from self-teaching, which is why it's a little rough, but you get the idea)



And here's one that might tickle your funny bone, a fake movie trailer that I made for my editing class:

Thank you everyone, and happy holidays!!!

MarissaSunshine Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
I agree with you on the overusage of the word hate, and it always annoys me that people take it for granted and use it for the smallest things! It's a pet peeve of mine, and for my writing class I've even considered writing an essay about the harmful effects of the word.

If I had a video camera, I'd LOVE to be able to send you a staged act of anger or sadness. Sorry that it may not make it, but I fully support you! Good luck!

Plus, excellent 3D work and trailer! :)

Korosu-Sienne Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
ahhhh.... 3D printing <3 I want to SOOOOOO bad. stupid DSC 101 made me want it XP I'm just very inept with 3D software @_@

I think it'd be interesting to see videos of your art process. I like to watch people draw XP

And thanks again, soo much, for posting about Dani's commissions.. it really means a lot to me.
E-vay Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
The models look great when they print, but the problem is you have to douse it in enormous amounts of superglue afterwards. It made my nose bleed the smell was so intense. Rhino is fun but it's not good for doing characters like what I'm trying to do (My professor just told me that today... after I've been working on this for ages..). But there's a free trial you can download and experiment with. They have built in tutorials so it's very easy to learn.

And you're very welcome, I hope it helps!
Korosu-Sienne Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
Really? I was looking at a website that does 3D printing and it didn't say anything about that, but I've never actually done too much research into it, just have an interest. It's a little ridiculous that your professor waited so long to tell you @_@ Well, I'm taking some topics class on "intermediate game design" next semester, so I'm hoping they teach 3D modeling and design and not just the 2D elements, I don't know how helpful Rhino would be to me, if it's no good for your character's style it's probably not too good for mine either, and i think that's what I'd dabble with :P

I really hope so too, I have so many friends in financial need right now (and... well myself, sine we've already been in danger of our second eviction now that mom's unemployed)but I thought Dani's situation was the most worthy of mention, since she's just so worried about being able to give her baby a good life.
E-vay Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
Yeah, trust me if you take the 3D class you'll have to watch commercials for 3D printers, and the professors just laugh because it's not at all as easy as it looks on the commercials XD They normally say that they coat the model in some really high-tech sounding substance after it's printed, but it's actually just super glue.

That sounds like that will be fun :D There's a 3D modeling and animation class I want to take, but it says I have to be an ART major to take it.. which doesn't make any sense because when I told my advisor I wanted to be an animator, she said I had to be a digital culture major.. ?

And I was just suggesting Rhino in case you get bored or something. I mean, despite the fact that it's not completely intended for detailed characters, I don't think the model I did turned out too bad so far since I've never even used 3D before. It's fun to play with anyway :)

I'm sorry to hear about your mom :( Work and money is just not doing so well for a lot of people these days..
Korosu-Sienne Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2011
XD yeah, I figured things like that are misleading, but it's always hard to know how much so... I still have wanted to print little 3D figures of my characters (just like I want to learn how to make like... plushies of my animal characters)
Yeah, I hate how the major-only classes work. Especially since that (and a lot of art only classes) are VERY helpful to design. I'm brushing up on my drawing with a drawing for non-majors course, but there's so much outside of my limits that I want to take.
XP yeah, I'll think about it.. I have a program called DAZ3D, and I've heard that even the free version is good, I just have to get myself around to learning, and that's the hard part :P
yeah, it hurts too when dad's pay check is being garnished about 20 or 25% and that we have to pay the bankruptcy lawyer like $1700, which could be more than my dad makes in a month @_@ But yeah, it just seems to be getting worse for everybody, and I just think that's such a shame.. I wish it didn't have to be such a pain.
