Assalam alaikum, all!*The TL;DR:
-Commissions in progress
-Stay tuned to journal updates for openings
-Kiriban at 200k pageviews - LINELESS ICON
First, hi new watchers! ^^ Thanks for watching, and I hope you enjoy my work!
Second, apologies for being MIA lately. With flight training in full swing, I've barely had time to relax, let alone get online much and do artwork. But my current commission queue is in progress now, and I do have plans on opening some slots when I'm closer to being finished with my current pieces, so stay tuned!
Anyway, yes, I am holding a kiriban at 200,000 pageviews! I rarely hold kiribans, but 200k is a nice number, so I wanted to do something special for it and for all you guys. ^^
This kiriban is also kind of a 'joint operation' on FurAffinity as I am nearing 100k pageviews on my profile there as well. I will be cross-posting journal updates when each site gets closer to the designated numbers, but I am holding two separate kiribans, one for each site.
Now, unfortunately, these kiribans are hitting me at quite the tough time. As I said before, flight training takes up the majority of my time. While I was hoping to offer a piece on the larger and more detailed side, I can't afford to take the time away from my current commissions, which do have priority.
That said, I am offering something...unique for these kiribans.
What I will be offering is something I have never opened commissions for, so the winners will be the first to receive this type of piece from me. Some of you may recall the golden days of DeviantArt, when the community was rife with activity, and the majority of my work was lineless...
If you don't remember those days, or you don't know where the hell I'm going with this, just imagine my realistic shaded works without lines.
Yeah, uh-huh.I am offering a LINELESS ICON for each kiriban prize.
Why am I making such a big deal about this? I used to do all of my work in a lineless style. Long story short, I became discontent with where my work was going with it, and nearly abandoned it altogether. I've really, really been wanting to get back into it lately, especially when I hide the lines on my realistic shaded pieces and they look great. I've really wanting to just push my work that extra step and work completely without lines again. Not only as a personal endeavor, to see where my art has come since then, but also to have another style to work on and to offer commissions with it at a future date.
And also, icons, just because I know I'll be able to finish them fairly quickly with my current training schedule, and it will also be a great way to help me get my feet wet with lineless again. So the winners will get pieces the likes of which I've never offered before, and I'll be using a totally new style.
It's a big deal for me, okay? XDAnd now for the rules!
Standard kiriban rules. The winner must note me a screencap that displays the moment they clicked on my page with the winning number, (200k for DA, 100k for FA.) And since this apparently can happen on some sites, I will only be accepting the first person to note me the winning screencap
. Before on FA, I have had several people catch a kiriban, which surprised me. And as much as I wish I could do kiriban prizes for everyone who does get the number, my schedule simply does not permit it these days.
Also, for the icons in general, I do ask that, if you're going to try and catch either kiriban, that you have a visual or concise written reference. And again, due to time restraints, if you only have a written reference, I will have to 'wing' your icon as I will be unable to send multiple WIP shots back and forth due to how little time I have in my schedule. Again, I really hate that I have to do this, but I'm unbelievably lucky to be able to offer these in the first place. (And I won't be able to at all fairly soon...) If this applies to you, please plan accordingly.
I will not be making many more future updates on these journals, so no need to worry about 'kiriban journal spam' every day or so. I may signal boost these once more as the numbers get really close, but usually it's all downhill by that point, so I'll just have to wait and see.
Good luck to any and all who try to snag the winning number!
