Posting commission slots

Hey guys~

Since I’m starting to get a bit of a backlog of commissions now, along with wanting to get into a few upcoming furry anthologies, I’m gonna have to start determining slots now.

In the past, I’ve done three slots and that seemed to do well. However, I’m thinking of bumping that up to four slots. Currently, three slots are taken up, so there’s one more left for whoever ends up getting it.

I strive to provide timely updates as best as I can, and these will be updated as such once I get a chance to post who already got what slot on here somewhere. I’ll see if I can create a post I can pin to the top of my blog on here, or I may create a separate page for slots; I’m not sure yet.

I’ll admit, progress has slowed down for me lately but I’m trying to pick up the pace again. I’ve been trying to stay positive about life things as much as I can because I know how detrimental it can be to my work ethic. Also, with Thanksgiving here in the States, winter coming up where I live, the Holidays, and New Years coming up, I don’t doubt I’ll be a tad busier than usual with family things and life things that may pop up. Best thing I can do is take things one day at a time.

Why I haven’t been writing lately (I know, I know)

Hey guys~

Yeah…I haven’t been writing a lot lately; a lot of that is due to how fast things have been changing in my life for the past few months. Between starting a new job and starting my last semester in college a few weeks ago, I also got thrown under the bus and was forced to find a new place before my friend moved to Utah (which was today). So, after working a temporary summer job, I had to start a new, full-time job (which is night shifts), start my last semester of college (which is thankfully just two classes), and move to a new place fast. All at the same time. Continue reading

Opening up for commissions, possibly

Hey Guys~

Things have been tight (No…get your mind out of the gutter), financially, and my current job barely pays me enough. I’m living on my own now, so I have ALL THE BILLS to take care of. Someone kill me.

I do want to finish up a commission I’m currently working on, which I would like to finish by the end of this month, if not sooner. Once I’m finished with that, then I’ll open up for commissions, possibly. In other words, I’m still closed for commissions, but I may be opening them back up at a later time. Please don’t ask for a commission until I’m open. However, I will be happy to answer any questions you have about the commission process, pricing, what I’m wiling to write/not write, etc. for future reference.

As much as it can be annoying sometimes, I sincerely enjoy writing stories for you guys!

Thanks,
~Ricky

Projects, Projects, Projects

Hey Guys,

Just a quick-ish update on what I’m planning on doing.

First of all, in case you haven’t noticed on my profile page, I decided to set up a ko-fi profile to try out for a while. It’s a small donation service for people to show support for content creators and give them a little motivation. There’s a link for it at the bottom of the page.

Now onto business. Continue reading

Small, General Update to TOS

I have recently updated my TOS for commissions, request, and trades to include a section regarding cancellation and denial of these. I should’ve included this section earlier, but have failed to do so due to being busy with college this past Spring. But, it’s up now, and I will be linking these pages to all art sites I’m currently on.

Apologies for delay with commissions

Hey guys,

Figured I’d give you guys a bit of an update, mainly for those two still waiting on commissions.

Overall, I’ve been very busy. Between my “final” semester of college, trying to maintain some exercise routine, dealing with family stuff, and trying to maintain some sort of social life…I feel like I have little room to breath. Obviously that leaves me with little time to write; at this point, I’m taking any chance I can get. Continue reading

Commissions Reminder & Status Update + General Life Update

Hey Guys~

As I’ve mentioned in this post I wouldn’t start on commissions until all the slots are filled or if they take too long to fill. It’s been over a week already since my first slot’s been claimed, so I may begin working on them soon.

With that said, I will start working on one or both of them starting tomorrow evening or Saturday. However, with Christmas just around the corner and New Year’s on deck, I don’t know how much I’ll get done. I still have one week left at work, and then I’ll have a couple weeks free until I go back to college.

As for my submission to Roar 8, I have no clue if I’ll get that done by the deadline by this point (Feb. 1st). I’ll still work on that as well as much as I can; it sort of involves another story of mine that I would like to finish.

I do admit, I’ve been slacking quite a bit on my writing habits lately. I’ve slipped out of trying to write every day (or most days when I can) and have only managed to write on the weekends, if I don’t have anything going on. Also, with the snow we’ve gotten the past couple weeks here, I’ve been a little weary about driving someplace else to go write. It’s hard for me to write at home (dare I say impossible), and I’d have to go in the next city over just to find a place that’s open late enough for me to write. There’s nowhere I can go in my small town anymore where I can go write. Hopefully this won’t become as much of a problem when I go back to school and start living with my boyfriend; I feel more at home there.

In other news, I recently joined the ranks of the Anthro Wrestling Federation (AWF) over on FA. No, you’re not going to see this tiger get in any bouts; that’s what I have Jamie for, haha. In any case, they are a wrestling RP group that, from what it sounds like, is on it’s third revival right now. I’ve only RPed once a while back (nothing fighting related) and I usually don’t RP in general. I also know little about wrestling and merely the basics. Thankfully Yarred, Ryl, Zander, Zeal, and Jeb have given me some great tips despite my uncertainty. And after chatting a bit in the group chat, both in character and out of character, I think I’m gonna like this group of guys ^^

Finally, a reminder that there is ONE SLOT LEFT FOR COMMISSIONS!!!!! Requests and trades are still open as well. There are subpages under the “About Commissions, Requests, and Trades” tab with more info on those.
