When I woke up this morning everything was gone.
By half past ten my head was going ding-dong.
Ringing like a bell from my head down to my toes, like a voice telling me there was something I should know.

Last night I was flying but today I'm so low, it's times like these that make me wonder if I'll ever know the meaning of things as they appear to the others; wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers.

I wish I didn't function, wish I didn't think beyond the next paycheck and the next little drink.
Well I do so make up my mind to go on,'cos when I woke up this morning everything I had was gone.

Alright folks, it’s time once again for Helios to trick you into paying for offer up a chance for you to be in another pic from Sketcher92! But before we get to that, there’s a couple of things we need to discuss.

First and foremost you’re probably saying “Wait, if you’re posting this, that means the last pic is done. So where is it?” You are correct in that the pic is done, and it’s been sent to those who bought it. I’ll be posting it (along with a couple other commissions) next week.

With that out of the way, here’s the main thing I need to communicate to you folks. When this picture was commissioned, Sketcher also had quite a bit of other pics to get through (apparently word of mouth spread fast). And the end result was that even though my picture cost as much (or less) than some of the other ones, it still ended up taking the most time to do because there was 5 chars as opposed to just one or two. So Sketcher informed me that he was going to start adjusting his prices to compensate for the extra work involved in drawing multiple chars.

So what does that mean for all of you? Two things mainly:

  1. Unless stated otherwise, we’ll be taking three characters at the most.
  2. Prices for being in the pics will raise somewhat. It won’t be $5 anymore, but it won’t be anymore than $10. It’ll most likely be somewhere around the $7-8 range.

Ultimately I think this arrangement will work out better, also for two reasons (convenient hmm?)

  1. While the 5 char pics look great, by having less characters more details can be added (close ups, expressions, etc.).
  2. Ultimately I have to pay prices that are fair to the artist, because at the end of the day he’s the one putting pencil to paper.

So yeah, slight price increase and slight number of spots decrease. I recognize that this is something that folks might not be on board with, but ultimately I think it’ll work out better for everyone.

With that in mind, here’s the part where I ask you all to be in the next pic!

As we all know, Mardi Gras is coming up. This religious holiday celebrating the last day before Ash Wednesday is now mainly known for three things: New Orleans, Wild Parties, and TITS!

I’ve wanted to get a Mardi Gras pic for some time now, but I always ended up missing the deadline. Well not this time!

So here’s the deal. I need three furry gals who are willing to go topless and get tickled on their tits! As always, some rules apply:

  1. The price for being in this pic will be about $8.50.
  2. Do not note me unless you can pay right away.
  3. Looking for furry girls only. They have to be furry and they have to be girls (no herms, shemales, etc.).
  4. DO NOT NOTE ME UNLESS YOU CAN PAY RIGHT AWAY.
  5. Since this pic is going to be NSFW, you need to be okay with your char topless and tickled on her tits.
  6. DO NOT NOTE ME UNLESS YOU CAN PAY RIGHT AWAY.
  7. If you were in a previous pic, you are actually welcome to submit your chars for this pic. You can also feel free to submit franchise characters (e.g Pokemon, Digimon, Sonic, etc) or someone else’s OC (provided YOU HAVE THEIR PERMISSION). It’s a party! Everyone’s invited!
  8. DO NOT NOTE ME UNLESS YOU CAN PAY RIGHT AWAY.
  9. Due to the limited spots, this will not be first come first serve. I’ll look at the submitted applicants and decide which three I like the best.
  10. See rules 2, 4, 6 and 8

Mardi Gras is the 28th, for those of you wondering, and I’m hoping to get this picture out by then. Who knows, if there’s time I might put in a call for another pic. Stay tuned!

Now there’s one more thing I wanted to talk to you folks about: I’m thinking of trying something new with this model of covering the cost of commissions to see how much money I can milk out of you folks before you slap me in the face.

Here’s what I had in mind: I make a master post of all the ideas I have for commissions as well as their estimated cost. For those of you that remembered the funding of the comic (oh God I want to try that again so bad but I feel so guilty about it not panning out you don’t even know) it would work more or less the same way. 

Basically if you saw an idea you liked, you could contribute some dosh to it’s funding. And it could be any amount you want. Could be $5, $10, the price of the whole damn pic, whatever you desire. Of course, those that contribute the most dosh would get fancy perks in the form of choosing certain things about the pic, or even having their chars appear in it. Stuff of that nature.

Now I know what you’re thinking, “So you’re just gonna make us pay for your commissions you? You asshole! You can’t possibly thing you’re gonna get away with this!”

Well, yeah. As I’ve said in the past I really don’t like making people pay for pics that I’m getting, as it goes against pretty much everything I stand for. So why am I doing it here? Because I also want to get stuff out to you guys on a regular basis, and well when you work a seasonal job that provides little (read: zero actual) income, that can be a little challenging.

The truth of the matter is that the only reliable way to get stuff out on a regular basis without incurring a steep financial penalty is that you need to find artists who are willing to draw you stuff for free. I’ve been lucky to find not just one, but several artists who churned out high quality work for me for practically nothing (if you’ve been here a while, you know who they are). Sadly all of those artists are no longer able to provide me art for free, or are no longer able to draw period. 

So that leaves us with commissions (and the occasionally lottery or two). While this is a reliable way to get stuff done, it takes time to happen for a variety of reasons. This is one of the reasons I now tend to post new content in a flood as opposed to whenever I receive the pictures, so in the event of multi-part pics like comics or similar content, there isn’t a huge gap. 

At the end of the day, this idea of letting you folks contribute some dosh is just a way to speed up the process a little bit. But as always, you are not obligated by any means to do so. The stuff that would be on this list of mine would be stuff that I’d get around to commissioning eventually. Of course “eventually” could be tomorrow, next Thursday, six months from now, next year, whenever. But if you wanted to chip in some, the process would be expedited along.

So what do you all think? Let me know, and keep in mind there’s no wrong answer. If you think this is a good idea and you’d be willing to help? That’s fine. If you don’t and think I should foot the bill for everything from here on out? That’s fine too.

So here are the main points again:

  • There’s a slight change for the pics from Sketcher. Total slots per pic will be no more than 3 (unless stated otherwise) and there will be a slight increase to be in the pic (though the individual cost will be no more than $10).
  • Now taking characters for a Mardi Gras themed tickle pic! Read the instructions above and send me your gals!
  • I’m considering letting people contribute to other commissions. Details of my plan are outlined in the third section of this missive as well as an explanation for why I’m shamelessly stealing your money asking for contributions. Let me know if this is a good or bad idea!

Alrighty that covers just about everything. I’ll be back next week with some pics.

Helios.
