FWA '16 Commission Queue Update #5

Hey, guys!

It's been a couple weeks since I've been able to work on badges and post another update, but this weekend's been a pretty productive one.  I was able to burn through another three badges in my queue, and have three left.  I'll be doing my best to make some time to finish more tomorrow as well, and will update again if I finish more. :) 

As always, feel free to check out the queue and its updates on my Trello board: 


In case I haven't already announced it here, I'm also not planning on attending Fangcon this year as I'd like to dedicate some time to creating more original art for prints and merchandise rather than fanart.  

In other news, I've also been a little busy as I'm in the middle of purchasing a house.  I'm so excite! :D

Anyways, thanks to all of you for your patience, and I'll update again as soon as possible.

FWA '16 Commission Queue Update #4

Hey guys!

Another short update here for you.  I'm about to send out the first batch of commissions from the convention.  These will be for :

  • Invoker
  • Mio
  • Oliver
  • Allan

I organized and put away most of my paperwork after adding all of the commission information to Trello, and now I'm not sure where I stored it.  So, at the moment, I've had to email several of you to get your mailing address.  So, I'll be heading to the post office to get them shipped out as soon as I have all the replies back.  So far, I already have an address to send out Invoker. :) 

This should ensure I can get these sent out sooner and then afterward I can go scouring through all my boxes for the commission slips. XD

Also, I planned on sending these out a week ago, but got caught up with a lot of stuff at work so didn't get much of an opportunity.  But, this weekend's a lot less busy so I have more than enough time to run an errand like this.  :/  Normally, my schedule is pretty weird (like, SUPER weird), so there are very narrow windows of opportunity for me to make it to the Post Office before it closes.

FWA '16 Commission Queue Update #3

Hey, guys!  

It's been a bit since I last posted and update!  So far, I've managed to finish two items in my commission queue and start on a third.  Normally, commissions don't take me quite this long.  However, the second item in my queue from the convention was pretty detailed and was also something I don't tend to do very often (a full reference sheet).  So, it took me a while to get it right and to finish it and all the detailing.

That said, I'll be jumping full swing into the remaining list of commissions I have this weekend.  The majority of the remaining work are badges, with a few full-body commissions here and there, so I doubt it'll take me as long to get through them and I should be able to continue at a much faster page.  Especially since most of them are traditional. :)

If you'd like to actively track what's going on with the queue, please remember to check out out the Trello Board I have published for the FWA 2016 queue here: https://trello.com/b/kSLc1d2P/fwa-2016

And, as always, remember that you can email me at admin@paintedlamb.com if you have any questions at any time.  I try to check that address at least a couple times a day, so it shouldn't take me very long to get back to you.  If you try to send me a note somewhere else like FA or Twitter, it could take me a few days to get back to you since I check those place less often (especially FA).

FWA '16 Commission Queue Update #2

What's up, guys!  Just wanted to put out a quick update.  So far, I've finished one full commission from the convention and am currently working on the second. I anticipated this one would take a bit longer since it's more complex (a full fursuit reference sheet!) and something I haven't really done before.

However, progress is coming along so I'm hoping I can be done with it in the next week or two.  Once that's done, the rest should go alone pretty quickly since they're mostly badges. 

As usual, you can find the current queue on Trello here: https://trello.com/b/kSLc1d2P/fwa-2016

If any of you have questions, you can also email me at admin@paintedlamb.com and I'll respond as quickly as I can. :)

FWA '16 Commission Queue Update #1

Hey, guys!

It's been a few days since the end of FWA, and I've had to take a bit of time to re-adjust to my normal work schedule, and to contend with some minor health issue (mostly some jacked up back pain XD).  But, I should be able to work on commissions from the convention queue starting this weekend.  :)  

I've already created a Trello board for this, which can be found here:  https://trello.com/b/kSLc1d2P/fwa-2016

There's one commission in particular that's a bit confusing for me, as I took down the person's info but they didn't include a phone number or email address I could use to contact them.  In addition, I don't have any references that are unaccounted for.  The commission is labeled with questions marks and set with the commissioner's first name (that was the only thing I could go by to identify them).  So, if this is you, please shoot me an email at admin@paintedlamb.com

In the future, I'll be making a more detailed commission form.  The current one I've used for the past few cons has worked pretty well, especially since it's a great size for me to tuck away and stuff into one of the boxes where I keep important badge supplies.  However, it was still mostly a stand-in until I could design a different form that could hold more information.  So, I'll guess I'll be starting on that soon...
