Sketchbook Auction - All Ratings - Help Silber get out here :)
Auction link here! ---->>>>>>>> http://www.furbuy.com/auctions/1004576.html

Hey everyone!
So, the long and the short of it is, I haven’t seen my boyfriend, silber, in a year and a half because of the distance and with me being in school and all. I was going to use the money I earned from FC to have him come see me, but someone who I had considered a friend was in need and I used the money to help them instead, under the impression that they’d pay me back in time for me to get my boyfriend out here for my birthday. Unfortunately, this decision of mine has left me not only worse off than before, and due to their inability to pay me back in the time frame I had requested, without any prospects to see my boyfriend anytime soon, which has left me kind of at a loss and without a lot of options.
And so, after talking it out with a couple of people, I've decided to offer a 5-10 page sketchbook commission. I had closed commissions because I wanted to focus on school, and focus on school I have, but due to me being too damn nice and having it kinda...blow up in my face, I’d really just like to earn some money so I can see my boyfriend again.

What you’ll get:

A hard/spiral bound 5 1/2”x8” acid free sketchbook with 5 sketches of your choice of subject matter and theme. The higher the bidding goes, the more options you have, including ink and/or color, and even more pages! Maximum 10 pages, but the higher the bidding goes, the more detail and options you’ll get!

$50 + = 5 sketches
Starting at $100, you’ll get a colored page, and for each additional $100 you spend you’ll get another page sketched and your choice of one of the sketches to be colored.</b> So for example, $100 gets you 5 sketches and a colored page out of those 5, $200 gets you 6 sketches and 2 colored pages out of the 6, $300 gets you 7 sketches and 3 colored pages out of those 7, etc. You can have up to 10 drawings and after that I’ll color an additional page for each $100. And again, the higher the bidding goes, the more detailed the drawings will be.
If the bidding goes up to $800, you will get all 10 pages colored and an 11th additional sketch included.
While I will draw most things there are a couple things in which I would be less inclined to draw. If you have any questions about if your ideas might be too iffy and you want to double check if I’ll draw them before you bid, please feel free to contact me, I’m quick to reply. (thornwolf227@gmail.com)

I've included the list of "will nots" in the auction info for those of you at work :) Don't worry, the images on the auction are work safe!

If you are interested in helping but do not have the money for the auction and still would like something, for every $15 donated to my paypal account I will draw you a little something ☺ </b>Just please in your paypal note leave your character description and links to pics of your character, anything specific and I’ll draw a little something. Please also make sure to leave your correct email so I can email you! Thank you. My paypal address is thornwolf227@gmail.com, this is also my email address so if you have any questions regarding the auction or otherwise, please feel free to contact me. I’m quick to reply!</p>

If you would like to see any more samples of my art, please check out my gallery at http://thornwolf.artspots.com

Thank you for your help! ☺

If anyone would like to pimp this for me I'd be /very/ very grateful :)

You need to link to your auction! ;]

goshdarnit, my internet kicked off and I had to call Verizon /right/ after I posted this so I couldn't edit it XD Should work now!

Oooh, good luck with that :3 I've considered doing something similar before I move to raise funds, so I'd be interested to know if this works well for you.. some people have warned me it can be a hassle, but they're speaking from speculation, so I'm not sure it would be so bad.

And well, at least it was nice of you to help out your friend, even if it did kinda backfire e_e

Will it be Silber's first trip to the USA?
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: April 29th, 2008 01:56 am (UTC) (Link)
First trip to California, but he's been to the US plenty of times, just the east coast, save for Washington. He's been there. Its just easier for him to come out here as he gets more vacation time and my friends can keep him occupied on my school days so I don't miss school :)

Btw when are you moving (still to Laguna?)

keovi From: keovi Date: April 29th, 2008 02:08 am (UTC) (Link)
California is pretty different from the East Coast :P I grew up in OH/NY/NC, and WA was quite a new experience! Granted, it was a very good one, and over all, I much prefer the West Coast for its more laid back and liberal attitude.

Hm, don't Europeans get more vacation time than Americans? (Or at least, I assume that's what you're referencing.)

Still Laguna-ish. Probably Aliso Viejo, but it's the same area :3 I need to be out of this place before June 1st, and hope to have an apartment mid-May.. so I'll be down there either right after Califur, or within two weeks after Califur.
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: April 29th, 2008 02:12 am (UTC) (Link)
oh yay, well you'll have to come visit then once you get settled :3

And yeah they get a butt-ton of vacation time compared to us Ami's. Its the weirdest thing. I dont know why Americans "live to work" like they do, but yeah its a lot easier for him to get vacation time in bulk if he asked for it.
keovi From: keovi Date: April 29th, 2008 02:17 am (UTC) (Link)
That would be fun :P Is your dog the canine-social type? If so, I could also bring along my ugly dog!

I wish American businesses didn't have that mindset; it's been proven that it's much healthier for Europeans to have their longer vacations than Americans who stress all the time.

Oh well, one advantage to freelance, I guess; if you bring in enough money, you can pretty much make your own schedule.
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: April 29th, 2008 02:23 am (UTC) (Link)
Feel free to bring your dog! My dog is canine social but she's kinda dominant, so there will be a little "omg what the heck are you's" and "i dont know you" mumbles but they're over pretty quickly. She's a very friendly mutt :)
keovi From: keovi Date: April 29th, 2008 02:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Haha, well, there is still some dispute as to whether or not Kiwi is, indeed, canine after all.

But she gets along pretty well with everyone, and she loves being the one chased, so I'm sure they'll get along fine.

Ohhh, good luck Thorn! I really wish I could help, but I'm budgeting really tightly right now since I bought the house. I'll definitely spread the word for you! I hope you can get all your funds raised! *cheer*

And I second Keovi, let me know how this works out, hmm? I may do this a little later to help me raise funds for moving.
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: April 29th, 2008 02:23 am (UTC) (Link)
I'll let you know :3 Good luck with the house thing. I've been watching it unfold and I gotta say i'm so excited for you!

Pimp'd :D

Good luck with the auction.

Consider yourself pimped! Had I more spare cash I'd toss some of it in the donation box. I hope you get to see him soon.
synnabar From: synnabar Date: April 29th, 2008 02:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay for the Phil Phund, cuz good people need to see each other. *nods* :D Best wishes to you both!
synnabar From: synnabar Date: April 30th, 2008 01:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, duh, I didn't read this: "for every $15 donated to my paypal account I will draw you a little something"

Do NOT draw me anything! I just donated cuz you guys should see each other... I don't need anything, and I'd prefer that you spend the time drawing for YOU (or reading, relaxing, whatever) anyway. :) REALLY!
