I am going to update the journal to show prices for the gradient flat color art, FREE ICONS with some purchases INCLUDED. Example for flats in journal. Please read for more information.

But seriously, I am financially stressed right now and unless I don't do something I am screwed. I wanted to avoid this but I am currently eating out of my savings money, which is really really bad. I suspect it is because I advertised myself poorly but I am not selling anything at all and I have to take drastic measures. I will also sell one animated icon per week but I will explain that further later. Lastly, for anyone who doesn't have the money to buy anything, please help spread this journal regardless. I really need as much help as I can get right now. Things got unexpectedly worse than I thought they would and I swear I don't want to admit I am desperate but...heh... ^^;

For reference, here is how the gradient flats will look like:

CM Example: Flat Colors by LunarMew


-I will offer Bust, Half Body and full body commissions.
-1 character per artwork
-Backgrounds are free but only as simple, geometric backgrounds like circles and squares.
-Depending on which flats you buy, they will be bundled with an extra avatar icon:

(Painted Icons for free, not $10
And Animated Icons for $5, not $20)


This is to help promote the icons but you don't have to accept them if you just want the commission you bought.



Discounts on Gradient Flats:
(Limited offers only)

Bust: $8

Half Body: $16
Buy a Half Body and get a painted icon for FREE.

Full Body: $18
Buy a Full Body and get an animated icon for $5.




Avatar Commissions:

Now recently I have been getting more comfortable with flash. It took a while but I am now positive I am ready to sell animations. However I am going to sell animated icons because they are quicker to do as long as I keep them in bust size. I wish I could sell more complex stuff but my schedule doesn't allow it and I need to survive here. XD

Lastly I will start posting animated commissions the following Sunday, depending on sales. I also need to post the examples but I am working on that right now. Non-animated avatars will also be available but will be digital paintings.


Here is what is available for Icon Commissions:

-Commissions will be completely colored and shaded only.
-I will sell both animated and non animated avatar icons.
-All commissions will be bust sized only.
-I'll make both an avatar sized version and a full sized version available.
-Animated icons will be created in Flash.
-Non-Animated icons will be painted in Photoshop.
-You can be as specific as you want with how you want me to do the icon but it's not required.
-Colored references of the character you want me to work with are mandatory. It doesn't have to be a drop dead,gorgeous, professionally made reference sheet, just something that lets me see the character at least from the waist up and is fully colored.

Avatar icon prices:

-Non animated icons: $10
-Animated icons: $ 20

Rules for non-animated icons:
-You can be as specific as you want with how you need the character to be portrayed and what angle but it's not required.
-I will do copyrighted, original characters, and fan characters.
-No vulgarity or violence, please. The character doesn't have to act nor dress like a saint but please keep it clean.
-Both JPG and PNG available after purchase.
-Full size and avatar size available after purchase.
-All icons are bust only.

Rules for animated icons:
-You can be as specific as you want with how you need the animation to be like and from what angle but it's not required.
-I will do copyrighted, original characters, and fan characters.
-No vulgarity or violence, please. The character doesn't have to act nor dress like a saint but please keep it clean.
-Animations will be around 1-3 seconds and one action only. No more than that.
-Both flash and gif versions of the animation will be available.
-Full size and avatar size available after purchase.
-All icons are bust only.
-ONE ANIMATED ICON PER WEEK If I am already doing an animated icon I won't take more until next week.


Slots and posting animations on my gallery:

-Because of school balancing I will be posting the commissions every Sunday rather than as soon as I finish them.
-I will only be taking 5 slots per week. The limit is 3 per person.
-To avoid last minute issues that will clash with my deadlines here I will only post commissions payed for during Monday through Friday. If I have empty slots but I receive commissions Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, those commissions will be posted the following Sunday, not the one currently scheduled.

Payments:

-Paypal only.
-No points. Ever. Please.
-Send me a note if interested in a commission and we will work from there.
-You can pay right now if you want or wait until I post my examples. Completely up to you. :)
-I cannot offer reservation slots this time. First come first served.
-I cannot offer refunds ether.




So here are the reasons why I need to open commissions as soon as possible and why this is such an emergency.

Originally the commissions were meant to cover bills and other expenses but it became an emergency because I am not payed enough to last me even two weeks. I am running out of savings money and this is becoming a strain for me when buying food for my family. Even if you cannot afford to buy commissions I will appreciate it if you can spread this journal.




Now if you want me to be more specific, here is some ranting. XD

-Bills. Bills everywhere. Rent, electricity, gas because winter is coming, you name it.
-That flipping car insurance bill that's been driving (no pun intended) me insane for months. I am begging my mom to not pay for insurance for one of the vans we have as my older brother doesn't use it anymore. (He past on early February) I don't ever plan on getting a car because we are so tight on money and I believe saving for an apartment is more important. However this is easier said than done because we need transportation and this leads me to my next reason:
-The car we plan to use is not fully repaired yet because we are missing more parts that we can't afford to buy. I intend to get the money but for now I am broke.
-I have no scanner now so I need to raise the money. No scanner, no painted, pencil style commissions.
-Gas money and grocery money. My mom depends on food stamps but they give us very little so screw the-I promise I won't turn this into a rant journal, sorry.
-Commuting money and school money. College is not cheap.
-My little brother works really hard and takes tiring shifts. I really want to lend him a hand so he wouldn't need to overwork himself.




That's everything that comes to mind right now. Let me know if you have any more question or would like me to be more specific with info. Again I wanted to wait until I was 100% done with the last commission but I am really struggling and need to open them again. It's an emergency and selling is less of a risk for my family and I than to wait while everything adjusts again. Switching part time jobs is not a safe option because I need to balance my work life with my studies as much as possible. If you have to live you have to work.
