Help me out?

I'm sure you all know that I really want to be able to sell t-shirts and stuff at cons, and I've posted pics of some of the designs I've already made. But I looked into some general startup costs for a single design with 10 shirts of each size, and it's going to run somewhere between $600 and $800, depending on what shirt style I choose and the number of available sizes. Now that's a LOT of money to put out all at once, and, unfortunately, sales at conventions just haven't brought in that kind of cash. I would need to save up for a couple years before I could start selling shirts, but I'd really like to share my art with everyone now.

So now you're wondering "What does that have to do with me?" Well, it's pretty simple. I've started a GoFundMe project to help with the startup costs involved with t-shirt sales. If you have money to donate, that would be great, but if you don't have money, please spread the word. There is a shareable pic on the facebook page here and once all of the money is raised, a winner will be chosen from those who shared the post. The winner will receive the t-shirt in their choice of size, and if enough money is made to get another design printed, they will receive that shirt as well.

Anyone who donates will receive a gift based on the amount they donate. All of that info is listed on the donation page, so I won't go into detail on it here.

So who's with me? Help me share my art on t-shirts! ^-^

Fundraiser is here.

And here are some possible t-shirt designs!

Long Time Coming

So it's been quite a while, and I wanted to start updates off with something cool. Introducing...Dexeka!!

This is the mascot for Dex Studios, Dexeka. Nevyn drew one pic of her and ordered a commissioned drawing from someone on deviantArt as well. I've drawn her 3 times now, though only one of those pics is colored right now. I'm still working on it, but I plan on dressing up as her at conventions. The first will be at Youmacon. I need to order the t-shirt still, but I bought the fabric for the skirt yesterday, so I just have to put it together! Her hair was based off a wig I already own, so I don't need to worry about that part.

I also put together the cyberlox that she wears, so that part's all set too!

I don't want to go too overboard with updates in a single post, so I'll leave things here for now and update again soon!
