Please help commission by kage-ouji Please help commission by kage-ouji
What I just wrote up there is SERIOUS. I just found out late this week about the charge, and it's just ridiculous. My university emails me about campus events and financial aid but NEVER when I have any type of hold. I'm not sure if other universities do that, too, but mine does. I had an accounting hold last week and tried to straighten it out by adding my 3rd class to have more than enough of the 12 units I needed, but the thing is, even with the department secretary for that particular subject helping me, she couldn't add me either with the professor's approval. The accounting hold basically blocked me until the refund deadline, which I didn't know about either. So I can't appeal for this. I can't do anything but cry, nod my head and become the uni's dog and pay the nearly $1k that they charged me for dropping ONE class to add another class. I was only missing TWO units. Both classes were worth 5 units. And the charge is worth more than half of my tuition. I dropped before the deadline so that I WOULDN'T have to owe money but they blocked me from adding so that I wouldn't be a full-time student, which means that they have a reason to charge me and not let me get in the class until way after the refund deadline. I'm talking to every adult that might know about this, and they're telling me to fight it, even if the university won't let me. I'm doing that right now, and most likely have a very slim chance of getting it fairly resolved.

This is why I'm opening up extremely cheap headshot commissions. If I do have to pay, I don't want to burden my parents. They know about this charge but they've been sheltering me for almost the past 19 yrs and have helped me further my education. They're the reason why I'm not wandering around trying to sell drugs or something like that. They're the ones who helped put me on the right path to higher education. However, they can't really contribute to my tuition or anything, as they also have bills to pay for and things like that. I gave them most of my scholarship money to pay for a few months of groceries and utilities. The rest was used to buy my supplies and textbooks (if I couldn't rent them) and a small fraction was put into savings for next year. That's why I don't want to ask for their help. I already gave them the money to use for this family. Asking for it back isn't right. I want to contribute and I don't want to burden. If I can somehow make even a tiny fraction of the money I need for a small payment out of this $973, that'll be enough to help get me into my Sociology class and continue my education until I graduate.

I'm sure that there will be some jerk who'll say, "Who'd commission you with your s***ty art? You SUCK!" or even something like, "Who cares about your sob story? We're all poor here!" I don't mean to sound rude, but I'm not talking to those people--they live to bring others down. I'm trying to communicate to those who would be interested in commissioning me to help me pay for my tuition charges. It's the same as trying to apply for a job. I'm trying to get commissioned. I'm not scamming anyone because that's not a part of me, on or off-line.

Please, if anyone is interested in commissioning me, please comment here. I honestly don't know what to do right now, and even honest, kind advice would help. I'm probably going to revise my journal to find more things to sell, seeing as I'm moving, too and need to save up money for this unfortunate event. This is really all moving too fast and it's only my first year.

EDIT 5/10/10: Also, PLEASE DO NOT FAVE THIS FOR THE SAKE OF FAVING IT LIKE IT'S SOME KIND OF CUTE PIECE OF FANART; THESE ARE MY OWN CHARACTERS' HEADSHOTS (BESIDES HINATA) AND I DREW THEM TO BRING AWARENESS TO MY SITUATION, NOT AS A CRY FOR MORE PAGEVIEWS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. Everything that's happening to me now is very real so I'm forced to do commissions.

I would actually love to commission you. Your art is very pretty and it's going to the cause of helping to pay tuition, and we all fall in the rut, but forunately I am not old enough for that rut in money yet. I'm sorry this happened to you and screw the haters that don't like you :(

I'm confused about what you get for your $1. Are people just paying to have you draw characters from shows and post them online? Are you actually sending them the original? Do they determine more about it? I don't know, don't mind me, I'm just curious what's going on, that's all.

People note me their information and usually pay me through paypal. Once I receive the payment, I start working on their characters (I haven't drawn any fanart yet). When I'm done, I send them a smaller picture of what I've drawn, and if they like it, I send them the original LARGE file through their email. If not, I just redraw it until they're satisfied.

No, it's fine, you don't have to commission me. It'd be nice if you could let anyone you think might be interested, though. =) That's all I'm asking for, really.

Thanks for the kind thought, too ^ ^

XD Sharing ideas and such is fun, isn't it? I was just wondering because you and Ravyn have similar traits and both want to help the less fortunate and promote awareness for some social issues. I always find that admirable :heart:

I'm so very grateful that you're the first to ask for this type of commission ;w; I thought another flamer would come on here and say something mean again. Thank you for your interest and for helping me with this obstacle in college.

I can kind of understand the difficult courses @__@ I'm not really a math person so I tend to avoid those classes. How people can take advanced calculus and stuff like that is beyond me. :dead:

I'll have all of the information set up tomorrow, along with a sales journal.

Yeah ^^; Math doesn't make sense when professors lecture on easy subjects and give out extremely difficult labs. XP

Thank you so much~ :heart::hug:
