What, Aliana is writing two journals, within a day??? Yeah, this gonna happen, dear followers. (those few that truely watch me xD). Soooo...art trades are open, as always, but it seems like I have to clarify myself (again?) about it.
First, only CRAFTS for CRAFTS. I only allow my BESTEST FRIENDS (with really remarkable talent, like
) the DRAWINGS for CRAFTS, or other super talented artists. Why? Lets considering the fact that:
1.) beads and wire cost way MORE than paper and pencil, copic markers, paint and whatever...not to mention that when it supposed to be a digital drawing, then the gap between the prices is larger (okay, I do understand that some really talented digital artist work on their pieces of art for hours, and that is still appreciated (if one of them wanted to trade me one of those drawings, like
, I think I would accept that (but I guess it's not likely to happen), but when you draw a bunch of lines and want me to trade that thing for a beaded animal...Sorry, no.)
2.) As I said that, really talented artists are welcome (only for smaller animals, though, like a hamster), and I prefer to getting a painting or drawing TRADITIONALLY (or printed out, if a digital artist wants to trade), I need that thing in a PERCEPTIBLE form, because a beaded animal, lets say, it is... Plus, I have to pay for the postage to...I like things to get equal, and I think that is pretty understandable.
3.) If you want to buy me something instead of making, because you are not a super artist, and want trade anyways, feel free to do that. (cause I do understand the fact that how annoying is when you want something and can't get it, in that case, my COMMISSIONS are OPEN too)
For crafts trades:
1.) I believe in equality, as I said. So we need to be equally talented, and no, I don't care if you are a little bit less talented in crafting, I still accept it, but please, don't want me to accept EVERYTHING for my crafts. I have been beading for 9-10 years, it's quite a long time, and during this time I have learnt a lot of things how to make nice, lovely animals with less and less flaws (I still have some, though...)
2.) I like getting crafts from different craft areas, but if you are wrking with beads too, but use a different technique, we can still trade.
3.) If you are a starter, use the same technique as me, sorry, in that case I only willing to trade patterns with you (because those are always welcome). Also, if someone from the same level wants to trade a lion with me, I couldn't be able to say no.
For my trades in general:
1.) Please be reliable: don't withdrew it when I'm already finished with my part, that is NOT nice, and I HATE that.
2.) I use no deadlines, because I am is a busy girl myself, but please, don't make me wait for ages when I'm done ( I try to keep it too)
3.) No cheaters, neither for art trades (or commisisons) (that is obvious, right?)
4.) If your package get lost I will send another, but then it got lost for the second time, then...I'm sorry.
5.) No liers (that is obvious too)
6.) If you want me to do something really hard, and I don't accept it, please, don1t be mad at me.
7.) I only do animals and jewellery
8.) That's why if you have an adoptable animal, you can ask me to make it.
9.) Please keep in mind that the animal sometimes won't look like the same if I have to make it from a drawing...
That's all now, at least about trades.
Lets see my projects.
I'm thinking about updating more character sheets, and I started to work on some backstories for those characters who didn't have one. I have like...60-70 OCs? Or more...heck xD If people will ineterested in it, I'll put some already written stories on my dA.
As I said previously, I have been working on that two paying forwards for
My unfinished trades (and here not I am the only one who haven't finished it...)
(keep waiting for her half)
(keep waiting for her half)
(both of us only need to send...fucking post office crossed our plans..)
(she'll tell me when she has time x3)
(she asked for a purple black red dragon for her boyfriend, I sent her the pattern to sign where and what colour he wants to)
(a cat from an anime will be made for her)
That's all now what I have...x3 Long long journal for you. x3
