didn’t dig enough out of the teeth so now i have to build those back up so it looks a little more backlit than it does now when the lights are off
YESSSSSSSSSSSS look at this! My robofox mask blank made into a seriously cool looking light up piece! LOVE.

DOG COMMISSIONS OPEN!
i’ve got to take my sewing machine in to get tuned up, so i won’t be able to sew much this week. on top of that i think i might have missed my warrantee by a month so it might cost a ton, so i figured now would be a good time to offer these! i’ve still got my old sewing machine, so i’ll (try to) get as much done on my current commissions as i can in the mean time, but these will fill the cracks since they’re just hand sewing.
i’m going to open up about 5 slots, maybe more depending on difficulty. they will be $50-$70 each, and are about 2 inches tall.
i require payment up front through paypal, and i need photo references of what you want. i’m only taking dog commissions, which means no cats (for now), no licensed characters, no OC’s unless it’s literally just a regular dog (no wacky hair or colors or costumes or different eyes or w/e). there are a couple other things i may not be able to do because of the limitations of this style, including
- some long haired dogs
- small light spots on dark fur
- curly hair
- anything other than black beady eyes
but totally show me pictures anyways and we can probably figure something out!
turnaround time will be within a month at the latest if i don’t get yours done before my sewing machine gets back/if i have to order a color i don’t already have. otherwise probably a week :>
also, i work very fast on these, i usually will finish one in one sitting, so there’s not much room for WIP’s and edits. so make sure you tell me everything important before i start so i don’t miss anything!
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!! and check back to the original post if you’re seeing this as a reblog. i will edit/delete the post when i’m full up.
Oh my gooosshhh, these are precious!
Ahh little puppies!!
Me being an adult
I got bored at work.
I like this idea. But not for 50$. Seems way over priced. I know it costs also your time. But 25 seems more reasonable.
well it’s a good thing i’m setting the prices and not you! haha
no but seriously i’ll explain why my prices are the way that they are, to clear up any misconceptions! (under a cut because i say a lot)
TL;DR: hourly wage goes up or down in relation to how much time it takes to train someone to do the job. minimum wage jobs take a couple weeks to train, but i’ve spent about ten years of my life sewing and currently go to school to learn even more arty things so i charge more.
Very nice explanation/reasoning for artists’prices
My Skillshare Class is Now LIVE! Sign Up Today!
Learn how to sculpt your own critters with my new video-based class on Skillshare. Much like my book, Creature Sculpt, this class is aimed at beginners and will take you through the entire sculpting process.
How it Works : Skillshare classes allow you to learn at your own pace. There are no assignment deadlines. You can watch the videos as time permits and complete the steps as fast or as slow as you want. There are no formal lectures or evaluations. However, you are encouraged to post your work-in-progress shots to the student forums for critique and discussion amongst your peers. I will be overseeing the forums to give my own advice and guidance to students.
What You Get : The class includes over two and a half hours of high quality video footage showing the entire sculpting process. Topics covered include materials and research, armatures, blocking, refining, detailing, finishing, and painting. Lifetime access to the class will be provided by Skillshare. This will include any and all updates and additions I make to this class.
You will also get access to the class forums where you can post questions, get critique, and share tips and ideas. While this is largely a student-based forum, I will also review the forums regularly to tend to questions and give advice.
Prerequisites : No previous sculpting experience is required, however, I do recommend that students have some sort of artistic background. Previous knowledge of drawing, anatomy, design, and color are all very helpful.
How Much? The regular cost of the class is $40 USD. However, I am running a 50% off promotion that lasts now through the end of August. This is a thank you to all of the amazing people that have supported me over the years!
Use coupon code “ThankYou” to get lifetime access to my class for a super-low limited price of $20 USD. Please use the link below to sign up. I get a MUCH higher cut of the sign up fee if you use the links that I provide vs. signing up through the Skillshare website.
Skillshare also offers a monthly membership to their entire class library. It is $9.99 per month for unlimited access. However, this will not entitle you to permanent membership in my class. You will have to continue paying the monthly rate in order to continuously access the material, new and old.
Please spread the word and thank you all for your support!
Such an awesome rate!
