Just a reminder if you need to get in touch with me or check the status of a commission or anything my email is
However, unfortunately, its still rather slow going for me! I’ve about ~13 full color commissions and a small handful of sketch commissions left to do (out of something near 60 or so if i remember correctly) so if you have not received anything from me yet, I am still working on it!
If you would rather a refund instead of waiting please let me know, so I can start saving and get that money back to you.
At the moment I need to pay for my tattoo license, and buy a couple of new/better tattoo machines, but after that if you would rather have your money back instead of the commission I will save up to do that.
If you don’t mind waiting just a bit longer I will try my best to get your commission to you as soon as I am able.
I’m very sorry for the long wait, I hope you all aren’t too frustrated with me
Hey you guys! Just wanted to check in to let you guys know that I am indeed still alive. I have been super busy with my tattoo apprenticeship, but it has been going great. I haven’t had a lot of time to work on commissions or other drawings, but I have been doing a bit here and there when I can steal the time. Thank you all for being so patient with me.
Now here’s a cool thing, we got the website up and running for the tattoo shop
My gallery doesnt have any tattoo work in it yet, as I am still learning, but SOON!!! For the moment it just has some of my drawings up (under Brianne if you are unfamiliar with my face or anything) :)
Alrighty just wanted to check in and keep you guys updated.

Commission from duskflare
my gorgeous commission from the ridic talented duskflare!!! new art of the otp!!! i cannot!!!
Hello everyone, I just thought I’d give you all an update on my life + commissions
So as you know I’ve lost my house and had to move, it was hectic and all that, old news.
Recently, I’ve been really busy lately helping two of my aunts who own a tattoo shop out here move locations and set up a new shop! Basically a lot of painting and lifting and tile laying/grouting and all kinds of things. Most of that has been keeping me from working on artwork very often, so it’s been pretty slow going.
But that is all done now and the new shop is officially open for business, and I will hopefully have more time to start firing off commissions again.
I did a quick count and it looks like I’ve got about 23 pictures left to do, so if you are among those people MY SINCEREST APOLOGIES for the long wait. I think its actually coming up on a year since I took all these commissions and I feel absolutely terrible about making everyone wait like this. I never dreamed in a million years it would take me this long.
But I AM making my way through them. I just wanted to keep you guys updated since I havent been posting many things on this account lately. I’ve been finishing a handful of pictures, but I just havent been posting them because I feel weird about asking permission to (or if its even necessary to ask permission to for certain ones?). In any case I may have some things to post up soon, hopefully.
Alrighty I think thats it. Thank you all for being so unbelievably patient with me. Hopefully after I finish these I can start posting personal work up again
(I will also start apprenticing for tattooing soon so there may possibly be some of that around here. Fingers crossed)
Commission I’ve been sitting on for a few days
still havent heard back from the person so I figured I’d post it up in case they follow me to let them know I’ve got one of their paintings done
Sherlock one on its way soon
Zee & Bats, a commission from duskflare
jesus christ though they don’t have to be rude
im just confused because i havent gotten an email from this person??
like i really understand their anger, i do. they are justified in being angry, its just this probably would have gone over a lot better if they just came to me directly and told me that they needed theirs done in a hurry? so that i could actually see about getting it done for them without them having to go off on me anon-like?
like I tag all of my commission posts, you can actually see theyre getting done: http://duskflare.tumblr.com/tagged/commissions/
its just like i said
shit has been so overwhelming and im trying to get them finished when i can :\
ok i got this on both my accounts so im going to copy and paste what i said there in hopes that you actually see this
“wow okay you could have possibly emailed me about this where we could talk calmly but ok
im working on the commissions i recieved as fast as i can
there has been a lot of reasons why its taking so long, namely being:
1) stress and depression in having my house go into foreclosure, and selling things off just to pay basic shit like electricity and water
2) computer issues: my computer broke, i had to get a new one, and now this ones not doing so hot either. Any time i try to run art programs for extended periods of time, it overheats and crashes. idk what the heck to do about it, so im trying to save what meager earnings i can to get a new laptop
3) i moved halfway across the country, because of said house issues, to live with family under the condition that i help work for them. Ive been HELLA BUSY during the days, so when i get the opportunity to draw, i do, but its not often.
4) I recieved a LOT of commissions. A LOT. I was really desperate and it was a seriously bad idea to take on so many commissions at once, and hell it didnt do much good to begin with since we didnt even get to keep the house
this is not me trying to shirk off my responsibilities. I OWE you your commission, you will get it. Theres dozens of people ive done commissions for who im sure can reassure you that i am not a thief and i do deliver. It will just take some time. Now if you want to email me to discuss this further, please do. I will make your commission my priority to get done next, if thats what you want”
look, seriously, Im trying my best. EMAIL ME if you need this done in a hurry and i will put the hustle on. I still have over 30 commissions to get done, and its just not going to be instantaneous here
im really sorry its taken so long, to everyone. I knew it was going to take me a while to get through them when i took the commissions, but i just didnt factor in everything falling to shit all at once.
life has been stressful and just fucking awful lately and i just cant get shit done that fast right now. Im sorry. It WILL get done though. I’ve gotten through plenty of commissions so far, it would be kind of ridiculous to do half of them and then change my mind about delivering to everyone, like?????
it doesnt make sense
i dont know
all i can say is im sorry, please discuss this with me over email, and i will move you up from wherever you are on my list and make yours a priority here.
