((Mod here, apologies for the lack of updates. I’m currently taking a break from Ask Velvet cause there’s a particular storyline I’ve been itching to start for some time now…but it just doesn’t feel right, so shortly before the holidays. There might be the odd update here and there, but for now, Ask Velvet is officially on hiatus.))
((Nightmare Night, what a fright…have a little treat tonight.
With the eponymous event only a week away, Ask Velvet hopes you are getting into the spirit of things with a more spooky background and banner!))
((Tomorrow (Oct.12) is the two year anniversary of Ask Velvet!
For this special occasion, another fan event will be held:
A Dance Party!
With a twist: Your character should be wearing clothes inspired by the costumes in “Hearth’s Warming Eve”. Can be sexy, doesn’t have to be.
The only other rules are:
No explicit stuff!
You character(s) only! (Velvet and the gang will appear separately)
Your character will appear as part of the next answer on Ask Velvet. If I don’t have any more space for him/her, s/he will get to dance away on the Mod Blog. Be sure to add your name and/or website address so I can give proper credit.
The submission box will be open till next Sunday (Oct.20).
((Autumn is here, so get cozy while you take a look at the new banner and background on Ask Velvet.))
In an effort to be able to pay my rent while still giving this blog the attention it deserves, I’m gonna turn Ask Velvet into a donation driven blog. It’s a hard decision, but I gotta eat too.
That means for every $40 donated, Ask Velvet gets a guaranteed update. Considering this blog has over 9000 followers by now, this shouldn’t be too hard. If even a hundredth donate $1, that’s already two guaranteed updates. (Should this work really well I might have to raise the amount, I can only answer so many questions at a time)
Thank you for your attention, and I hope to return to regular updates really soon.))
((Mod here again.
As we’re entering a new month, I want to extend a personal thank you to each and every person who ordered a commission or donated.
I came about $300 short of my intended goal, but considering I started mid-month, that’s still pretty good. I was able to pay my food and rent without problem, so that’s a great start.
With that said, I ask that you please keep spreading the word and keep ordering commissions or donating. It really helps me.
I’ve calculated that I need to draw about 12 full colour, two character commissions (or something of equal value) a month to keep me covered. That should be doable right?
Remember, all the info you need is on my Mod Blog and you can always pm me there if you have any questions beyond that.
So thank you, and keep them coming!))
((Mod here. This might be my most important post ever, so please read.
First off, apologies for the lack of updates, I plan to rectify that soon. Big things have been happening.
I spent the last few weeks moving into my own apartment, and as of July 1st, I am officially a freelance artist. That means I make a living solely off my art.
That means I need to make at least $1200 usd (about 920€) a month to cover all my expenses (food, rent, insurance).
This is where I need your help.
Well, you can either
- commission me: You can find all the necessary info here. Spots are always open, and I try to finish commissions as fast as possible. If I have a lot of commissions at the same time, it might take a little longer, but I’ll let you know in that case.
- donate: I’ve added a button on the right side for donations, and any amount is welcome. Top donator of the month gets a coloured sketch of his/her choice.
- buy stuff from my online store: Which is here. Right now there isn’t too much in it yet, but I’ll be sure to add new motives whenever I get an idea (or a suggestion).
So please, help me reach my monthly goal, so i can continue focusing on and sharing my art with you!
Thank you for your attention.))
