And now for a few things about me:

I like:

Art (painting, drawing, design and fashion)
Writing (realistic fiction, short stories, creepypasta, nonfiction persuasive and social commentary)
Sewing (clothing, quilting and plush toys)
General Crafting (jewelry and accessories, doll modification, sculpting, and tinkering)
Cosplay (character cosplay and historical)
History (the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Victorian and Edwardian Age, and the 50s and 60s)
Science (animals, marine biology, chemistry, medicine)
The Spanish language and culture (I've taken Spanish I in school and am still learning)

Favorite authors: Christopher Moore, Lloyd Alexander, Carl Hiaasen, George Orwell, C. S. Lewis
Favorite artists: Jasmine Beckett-Griffith, Andy Price, Yaya Han
Favorite movies: The Princess Bride; Monty Python's The Holy Grail; O Brother, Where Art Thou?; The Avengers films (including Iron Man and Captain America; ) Finding Nemo, the Planet Earth documentaries, Brave, the Ghostbusters movies, My Little Pony: Rainbow Rocks
Favorite shows: My Little Pony, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Sherlock, Psych, Kitchen Nightmares, World's Dumbest, Bravest Warriors (though I don't like Adventure Time oddly enough)
Favorite YouTubers: Markiplier, Pewdiepie, Jacksepticeye
Things I don't like (allow me to apologize in advance: ) Anime (but not all of it,) John Green, neckbeards and "nice guys," Adventure Time, and what I call artistic genericism (when artists duplicate ideas and themes that have already been expressed ad nauseum, such as the criticism of religion and the criticism of capitalism)

I've been getting a few comments about how people wish they could afford my art/ dolls but can't. It's not that they're asking me to lower the price, they're just saying that they want to buy my art but are financially unable to. Please stop doing this. I sell my items for a fair price, and I'm not going to lower the price because a stranger says "pretty please," so if that's what you are trying to do with such comments, it's not going to work. If that's not what you're trying to say, then why do you bother telling me? If by some stretch you feel apologetic, don't be. I have no bearing on your financial situation. Some people have specified that they can't afford it at this time, implying that they'll come back later, but they never do. The main reason that I dislike these comments is because they disappoint me. I love getting new comments and reading them, but these comments are not helpful or informative- which is what they should be like. (I'm even okay with hate comments because at least I can come up with funny comebacks.) I expect to receive praise or constructive criticism, but all I get is sadness. Imagine your friend telling you that they were going to go to your birthday party, but decided that they had something better to do. This isn't an analogy to my situation, but picture the sadness and disappointment you'd feel in that scenario. Now imagine that nobody showed up to your birthday party at all. That's how I feel. I've never sold a single painting, and I've only ever sold one doll. A little part of me hopes that someone will express interest in buying my art when I see a new comment, and people who comment saying that they are interested but can't afford it dashes that hope. You might feel sad because you're afraid that someone who can afford it will get it before you, but I feel even worse because I know that, in all likelihood, no one is going to get it at all.

Fine Art Commissions

I am offering commissions for pen-and-ink drawings, colored drawings and watercolor paintings. I do not accept points; commissions can be paid for in USD via PayPal. You do not have to pay until I show you that I am finished with your artwork. Watercolor paintings will be shipped to you for a flat $5 shipping charge, and if you order a drawing, you can choose whether or not you want it sent to you (same price.) Important: If you do not pay for your commission within four weeks of completion, your name will be added to a blacklist- you will not be allowed to commission me again, and other artists will be cautioned not to serve you. I will try my best to be timely; please return the favor. (Also, I'm sorry there are no images; I can't figure out how to embed pictures into a custom box. If you can show me how to do so, I'll reward you with points!)

Black and white pen drawings: (8.5" x 11") $5…
Colored drawings: (8.5" x 11") $10
Watercolor paintings: (includes watercolor chibis, 9" x 12") $25
Acrylic on canvas paintings: (various sizes) note me

Ugh, yeah. I don't know if you've ever watched Markiplier, but he made this neckbeard satire video once that made me physically ill. I DESPISE them.

omg they're so gross. The sad part is that where I live, here in East Tennessee, a lot of the trashier, redneck people have them... :C

Wait, you live in East Tennessee? That's interesting! "A River Runs Through It" reminded me of a creek near my grandparents' house in the Appalachians. I used to live in Northern Kentucky, and we'd drive through Tennessee all the time to get to their house near Asheville. It's so beautiful there!
