Commissions

Fully Shaded Digital Pokemon Commission [Legendary Pokemon]
This is for a fully shaded digital pokemon that is Legendary. These take much more time for me to draw, and hence, are more expensive.

Examples:
Entei Background Complete by xSammyKayx & Lugia by xSammyKayx

Please note, the prices charged with this widget is more expensive than displayed on my commissions list, as deviantart takes a percentage for themselves. For more info on my commissions, cheaper prices and more examples, please visit here: fav.me/d7edvu4
Fully Shaded Digital Pokemon Commission [Basic Pokemon]
This commission is for one fully shaded pokemon, that is easy for me to draw. For example, Zorua Commish by xSammyKayx. Please note, the price is higher when using this commission box, as deviantart take a percentage away.

For more information on my commissions, more examples and the cheaper prices, please go here: fav.me/d7fczsd

Welcome to my page! Eep!
Quick facts I guess.
I'm twenty, live in Australia and go to university in the hopes of becoming a teacher.
Art is a hobby of mine, something I can just play around with. My digital art usually uses a Wacom pen + touch with photoshop elements 8. My traditional art is done with a normal mechanical pencil, and copics. I usually state which ones I have used in the deviation.

Err.. I still play pokemon [both video and card] on a regular basis, so there's a lot of that sort of art going around right now. Lemme know if you wanna be 3DS buddies!

I'm happily in a relationship of 6 years [and counting].

And if you are from Tickld, say hi! :D [I upload some of my stuff there!]

Goodbyes

Thu Oct 2, 2014, 1:57 AM
This is a personal journal. Feel free to read it if you wish, but it isn't necessary.

It's funny how preparing for a funeral takes away everything you thought you knew about the person. 

On Tuesday night, my dad won his battle with cancer but instead of battle scars, he paid with his life. This probably doesn't make sense. Everyone else has been saying that he lost his battle with cancer. He didn't. He was strong. He fought. He no longer has the cancer. He is no longer in pain. He won because the cancer isn't terrorising him anymore. He is at peace. 

On Sunday(? I'm not really keeping track of time...) I went to the hospital knowing that I wouldn't return back to his room to see him. It was time for goodbyes. I sat there for almost an hour while everyone came in and out. He wasn't aware that I was there. I kept it together. 

Then I said goodbye. As I did, recognition lit up his eyes. He knew who I was, and why I was there. I lost it. Love is eternal. I'll always love you. His final words to me. 

For two days he pushed through the pain and tried to stay with us. My mum was with him for all that time, except for some sleep one morning. She saw my dad turn into a stranger. In her words, that wasn't the man I married. We weren't allowed to go see him - neither of them wanted us to. 

On Tuesday, they managed to calm him down enough for him to leave us and to finally be pain free. 

At the moment, we're surviving - barely. We're organising the funeral and everything that goes along with it. It's closed casket, but immediate family has the option to see him. They tell me he will look like he did a year ago - before all of this started. I can't even imagine how that is anymore. They say that it's a good opportunity for me to say goodbye without everyone else there to see me fall apart. But I don't want that opportunity. I want my dad to see me graduate university, walk me down the isle, hold my kids for the first time.

But I can't. Those options have been taken away from me. 

~
For now, that's all I'm up to writing. That's the most I've written or said in about a week. 
Plus, I need to write a piece for the newspaper and for the funeral.

Llamas
Thank you so much for the llama! Please don't feel offended if I don't reply to you - there are so many messages that I get about llamas, and saying 'thanks' is getting pretty boring. I'd love it if you could send me one in return [if you haven't already!]

Points
Unfortunately, I don't have enough points to give to random people individually. Instead, I hold regular giveaways and contests! Please refrain from asking for points on my page. If you think your cause is really important - note me! I don't bite, and I'd love to know more!
