    i hope this is okay but i finally got confirmation from my ex mom-in-law that my photographs are safe with her and were never sent bc my ex is still a dirtbag liar. i'm trying to do some commission work so i can send the money to get my pictures back.

    SEEKING TO DO SOME COMMISSION WORK TO BRING HOME MY FAMILY PHOTOS AT LONG LAST.
    As some of you know I got divorced last October. My family photos are still with my Ex’s family in another state, and I’ve been struggling to get contact with my Ex to send them despite his repeated broken promises to do so as he drops contact and essentially disappears for months at a time. I have no idea when I’ll be getting my parents ashes back from him due to another complication, if ever, but the photographs are all I have left of my family. I’ve got nobody left, and it’s been years since I’ve seen the faces that box contains. FINALLY I got in contact with his mother who assured me she still has them, but can’t afford to send them herself. I’d like to do some commission work so I can send the money, and get my photographs back so I have some keepsakes of my family on hand finally.

    Let me make you things in exchange for currency.

    Full color bust: $20
    Blinking/smiling/other simple movement headshot gif: $25
    Lineart: $25
    Flat Color $30
    Full Color: $40
    Extra Characters: +$10 each
    Lots of technical detail: +$15

    Things I will NOT draw: NSFW commissions for anyone under 18, wildly detailed armor, mecha, detailed backgrounds. I reserve the right to refuse a commission at any time.

    Please contact me here, or at (my username here)@gmail.com to discuss your commission. I only accept payment via Paypal. I request you have references and information for your commission at the ready to make this a smoother process! It’s a lot easier to give you what you’d like if you actually know what you want already.

    there's a 'commission me' thread in make it so, that'd also be a good place for this. including examples of your art will help you get commissions too.

    So Downton Abbey is about to be out of theaters in a couple of days, so me and my mom went to see it before it was too late! I know absolutely nothing about the show, but it was still great!

    It had a lot of beautiful shots, the detail work of the time period was awe inspiring, and the characters' individual plotlines were somewhat easy to follow even for me! There was no random character shoved in to be Exposition Man and I actually had very few questions about backstory that couldn't be picked up just by watching!

    It also had me rolling with all the upper crust snark. It was extremely humanizing as well, the characters - from the shopkeeper they regularly bought from all the way to the king himself - were all just people, affected by status or not as they may be they were still all humans. It was wonderful

    I've been accidentally using the forum rating system outside the forum, and honestly whenever I just say or type the word Agree, Witnessed, Useful etc. people give the most confused faces and replies and it's hilarious imo

    I will type “agree” at least. That’s usually not interpreted as especially weird. Winner is the difficult one for me. I usually just spam a variety of emoji or punctuation in its place, depending on the format.

    A request about a thing I've noticed a couple of people do: if people don't want to associate with me, fine, but can you please not talk about things I post right in front of me while refusing to talk to me? I don't think it's an actual attempt to be passive-aggressive, but it feels like being on the receiving end of passive-aggression and I'd rather people stopped.

    Trying to conlang up some Alternian by analysing the names. Hussie's claim was the names are formed from lusus bleats, but I'm going with the theory that they translate the sounds the lusus makes into actual words in Old Trollish or whatever.

    i think it'd work better there because discussion could ensue.

    This video is interesting, and as someone who's played video games as long as I can remember it's really funny how a lot of what is "obvious" about video game logic isn't really that easy to understand. It's like being a horror movie fan and being asked why people make dumb decisions. You just don't think about things that have been around for a long time that are used over and over in all types of games.
