Every time I see Felspar’s posts come across my dash, it makes me smile. Their headcanon posts are delightful, as is their voice (and I think they should post more of both). And I must confess that I am a huge fan of the epistolary Ladyhawke AU they started!

working on playlists and suddenly reminded of the frontier AU I had been plotting out (just for fun, you know. That’s why I got up to eight chapters.)

And now I want to work on that instead.

Hey there it’s Cait! Since i’m out of college until i transfer next year to cosmetology school (yaaay!!!) and currently jobless i’m re-opening commissions but with more variety this time because i need money to get by and to go to upcoming school funds.

There are four options to choose from and they can either be 1/3 body or full body and have up to two characters, any additional are extra (excluding portraits which are just…well portraits).

Pricing 

Portraits - $30

1/3 body

  • Line-art - $20
  • Flats - $25
  • Rendered - $30

Full Body

  • Line-art - $30
  • Flats - $35
  • Rendered - $45

Additional characters (up to two more so at most you can have a total of four characters) - $10-20 depending on complexity

Things i Will/Won’t draw-

Will -

  • Original characters
  • Game based oc’s
  • Fanart/pre-exsisting characters

Details and Contact Info

Now that i’m free i have a turnaround time of 1-3 weeks, though i will make an announcement/let you know if something comes up. All payments will be made through Paypal only in USD and full payment is not due until i send you a sketch and it is approved by you (you can pay all then or half and half either upfront or upon completion if you have a large order). I will not entertain changes to the commission once it is complete aside from small color adjustments so approval of the sketch is a vital step. You can view my existing commission queue here

Contact can be made via email at my address maroonrice.art@gmail.com with [Your tumblr username] - [commission type] Commission as the subject header for sorting purposes. Please provide detailed written references and/or visual references (preferred), face-claims if you have them, clothing references, etc. I will not design a character from the ground up however i am willing to design outfits for them if you do not have any references or preferences.

If you are not interested or cannot currently purchase a commission signal boosts are highly appreciated! Thank you!!!!

WARNING FOR THOSE WITH OR RECOVERING FROM EATING DISORDERS, ESPECIALLY ONES WITH OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE HABITS, WHO ARE THINKING OF DOWNLOADING THE IOS 8 UPDATE. PLEASE REBLOG.

illhaveasalute:

nonbinaryparenting:

frilton:

The new IOS8 update contains an app named Health which CANNOT BE DELETED.

The app allows you to choose which aspects of your health you choose to monitor, but available categories include “Body Measurements”, which includes body weight, and “Fitness”, which contains sections for calories consumed and calories burned. 

While this may be useful for those looking to monitor their fitness, it could be triggering and harmful to those suffering with or in recovery from eating disorders, especially in sufferers with obsessive compulsive tendencies they find it very hard to abstain from, such as calorie counting, body measuring and weighing.

Whilst of course the app cannot force you to use it, it cannot be deleted, so will be present within your apps and can be a source of feelings of temptation to record numbers and of guilt and judgement for not using the app.

If you personally feel you could not emotionally handle the presence of this app,  and it would be detrimental to your recovery, please do not download IOS8. I do not know if a new IOS can be avoided permanently (if anyone has any information on this please do add it to the post), but if it cannot then please use the time you have to prepare yourself for the app, and to reinforce reminders that you do not have to calorie count, you do not have to weigh yourself, you do not owe proof of exercise to anyone, person or app.

reblog this please - it is so incredibly shitty of apple to do this

Reblogging, cause I would’ve liked knowing this.

Alternatively, if you hold the app (and any app for that matter) until it shakes, you can place it and any other apps you don’t use into a folder (by dragging it overtop another app—it’ll automatically create a folder) and then move that whole folder to a page you never go to. That way it’s out of sight entirely and you can download the new iOS for the latest security updates, etc without worry. :>

something I do unconsciously in real life: the Bioware lean. You know, that lean with the arms folded, up against a wall or door jam or something. (since before ME or DA)

unsure what that means precisely

Hot tea, cool weather, good playlists, and crafting. Can this just be my job instead?

bilesandthesourwolf:

I wanna write one of those fics that an entire fandom knows about, that shows up on everyone’s rec list, that people create artwork for.

And/or the rarepair fic that starts another ship

So, I have been missing working with leather acutely lately, which is only worsened by the lack of any good leather supply store inside about three hours from where I now live that I have found. But! I do have a fair amount of decently sized leather leftovers floating about (no, I jest; the leather is in a bag, not drifting around), so I was wondering if anyone would be interested in handmade wrist cuffs or other smallish type things of the leather persuasion?

I am not looking to charge super expensive prices—maybe just the cost of shipping, really—because I really just want to make more leather stuff for people. I’ve got soft pig suede garment leather, firmer oilskin leather, and even some firm veg tan stuff that bracers are made out of. Super flexible with designs and more than willing to work with any and all ideas!

Reach me in my askbox, or at my email

Here are a few examples of my past work:

Small Green Book (which is also available for sale)

Cousland Bracers

Hawke chestplate

Some photos behind the cut

Reblurping with some more photos of the wrist cuff I made today (I need to settle on a design for it) and the first pair of bracers I ever made. Also pretend that’s not a kitchen counter.
