Hey there folks! Couple things I wanted to talk about!
So, emails have been sent out to those who got a slot on the Queue proper. Unlike last time, I figured I might as well just post the folks who got one in the queue from the get-go rather than wait to see if folks cancel. If that happens I'll just update it.
109 form submissions this time around! It was very difficult narrowing that down to just 10, and as before I'm taking on some simpler bonus commissions in addition to the regular queue. IF YOU SEE YOUR NAME LISTED HERE, watch your emails over the next couple months: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SuVeCEnMGkz3WhrNpd3ccfByoO6pFwsLKXNpULbB14M/edit?usp=sharing
Its effectively a waitlist of the simpler ideas that folks submitted. I'll take them on every so often when I have spare time or in between big commissions. They work a bit differently, though pricing is the same as normal:
-Won't all be taken on at once. Only several at a time, if folks respond in a timely fashion.
-A bit of random priority, often being taken in during spare time or between more complex commissions as a break or warm-up.
-May or may not be streamed. Sometimes I'll just do them on my own when I'm bored one night.
-Only one preliminary sketch (the vast majority are picked because they don't seem like they'd need more than one anyway)
If your commission idea has been selected as a bonus commission and these terms aren't acceptable for whatever reason, that's alright! You can let me know via comment, note, or email, and I can take you off the list, no problem. Likewise, if I get to your bonus commission, and for whatever reason you need to postpone or cancel it, just let me know! If you're on the list, I'd like to ask you a favor to check back on your emails every so often just in case! I WILL contact everyone on the list at some point. I cannot say for certain when, but I will email you!
Thank you all for showing so much interest in my artwork! I'm sorry to those that didn't end up getting one this time around; I urge you all to resubmit again when I reopen later! There were so many fantastic ideas and characters that it was genuinely very difficult to narrow down to just those above.
Now, the other thing I wanted to talk about was slavestreams. I won't lie, opening for slavestreams this time around was not as smooth as I'd have liked. Full transparency; the plan was to open for a couple weeks, then take a break for MFF, then do another couple weeks before a holiday break. Normally, the way I'd have to do that would be to manually block off time on my calendar, since the booking site is linked to that, and that would make those times unavailable. Then I'd just simply set the end date to the latter end of the second set of times. That was the plan!
For whatever reason, that did not work. The booking site must have had some sort of change to the way things were handled. Not only did it not block off the time like it was supposed to, the latter 2 weeks weren't even selectable! My deepest apologies for the mess, especially if you tried to book a time that wasn't supposed to be available.
That said, my plan for those remaining weeks is to just open up later on, after MFF, rather than wait and see if it eventually makes those times available. I'll be sure to post a journal about it. Unfortunately, due to the timing, I won't really be able to post a warning journal a week in advance like I usually would. But, I can tell you all here: I will be opening for slavestreams again on Wednesday, December 8th, around 5pm. This will be for the time slots between December 10th - December 21st.
Again, thank you all for your continued interest in commissioning me! Let me know if you have any questions, either here in comments, or in notes or email!
