I decided to take an important decision recently.
Well, probably most of you, especially my closest mates inside and outside from dA know that I am a motorsports fan, and mostly of Formula One and MotoGP. And if you're not so close to me, probably you noticed the fan artwork I began to do about all of this from 2009 year to now, especially my "MotoGP Project".
I decided now to try to buy two goods of the online shop
of the official website of one of my favourite MotoGP riders ever, Daijiro Kato (I already drew him here
The goods I want to get are this kangaroo bag
and this sticker set
designed by Ranka Fujiwara
But there are some problems:
- That online shop don't have international shipping, so I will have to ask to someone with a permanent address in Japan for help me. I know someone, so I hope I can get their help. And, probably, I will need to give to that person the money for make the shipping from Japan to Colombia.
- As you noticed, the kangaroo bag is really expensive and the cost is around 225 dollars. Normally for the things I got in the Net, like most of my Japanese music CDs, the t-shirt I have in my deviantID and a book I bought via eBay two years ago, I could buy them because the price (even with shipping) is less than 45 dollars and I wouldn't have so many problems for ask to my father for let me to use his credit card. But now I can't do this, not because the sticker set, but the kangaroo bag. So, I must get the money by myself.
- I don't want even to explain to my parents about the '74' decoration and so on. I will get the money by myself and I will be responsible of it, so I will not to give explanations.
So, I began to save money. From today until January (In middle January I will visit Mexico) I will work hard in the shop of my parents for begin to get from bits to bits the money, and I will also save from the money I receive for my surviving in the University. I did this also before for pay my tickets for Versailles concert in Colombia (November 9, 2011) and all the Versailles-related merchadising I got in 2011, so I will do the same again for get the money for the kangaroo bag and the stickers.
For help myself with this, I will begin too, to make commisions with real money, with help of Paypal. I have a Paypal account from so much time ago, so it will help. So I will have a lot of forms of get money. I hope to use this money for, at least, to cover the expenses of the shipping costs. If in the end when I get the goods I still have money, I will use it for pay some Premium Membership on here and points.Slots:
(For now, I will try with five slots. Anyway it depends of how so much time I can spend and it depends, too, of my obligations in the University).Stuff I will draw as a commision:
I will draw portraits in 'anime-style'. You can tell me about Original Characters, celebrities, or even a random portrait of yourself or your friend. But please, give me at least two or three reference photos, so I will try to capture the characteristics of the person.
I can also draw any chibi version of people or of some animals like dogs, cats, octopuses or jellyfishes. I will draw also cute versions of cupcakes, muffins, cakes, food, sweets.Stuff I will NOT draw as a commision:I will not draw sexual content
, and I will not draw fanart of comics, manga, anime, neither any kind of TV shows. I will not draw vehicles or mechas, non-chibi animals.
About fanart, if you want that I draw fanart, ask me for request via note, but these ones will be totally free
, because I don't pretend to gain money with derivated works.Size and other technical details:
