A plea for help!

Hey guys :3 !

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I've been unable to really function for a few weeks now, because of an illness that we are still trying to diagnose. I've been feeling much better lately, thank god! However, since I haven't been able to get into work and we have no coverage over medical leaves, well... I have no money. NONE.
I've been thinking of hosting some sort of Charity Livestream.

Like, I want to try having a FULL DAY Livestream, during which I just sit there and talk and draw Live! It would be appreciated if, coming into the Stream, people could either send small donations of a buck or two, and could also buy commissions that I would draw in front of them! Quick things though so that everyone can get a turn :3 ! They'd be sketchier but also much cheaper. Or hey you can bribe me into doing something more detailed. XD

But yeah, this is just an idea, wondering if anyone would be interested. If you are, I'll post the times and info and all :3

If you worry about not having a paypal account, I think donations work with a creditcard, too. It's for a good cause I swear ;_;

I might also try to sell some other stuff, like.. I own a couple of TMNT doujinshi that I would sell... against my wishes, but I -really- need to be able to pay my rent. XD;

So yeah!! Thank you for letting me know what you think ^^

If you host a "slave stream" like Wolfblade does you should
be able to make a good return. Watch how he does it
and go from there. And good luck.

It feels like all the journals I read lately are pleas for financial help...

Sometimes I think asking fellow struggling artists may not be the best plan, what you really need to reach is your general fanbase at large, who constitute the silent majority. They're not the ones likely to comment on your work at all, probably because they don't know where you hang out at primarily, but they're the ones most likely to help you out in a crunch.

You're not a bad artist, have you tried advertising just plain sketches and lineart at raised prices with the reason why listed? It's something I would consider myself. A lot of clients ask me for full-color works which easily take 2-3 weeks and I need clients who are satisfied to pay me well at standard pay (above minimum wage) for work done.

I think you would be surprised how many followers/non-artists have accounts on these art websites just for keeping up with posts and journal updates from their favorite artists.  So it would make sense to put this type of request here. I would say it works. So for every reply of "sorry I'm broke too" there are other watchers thinking "hum, I think I'll place an order ".

Exactly, because really, my fans check my art on websites like this or Deviantart, mostly. There really isn't any other place where I could post a request, haha!
And hey, it doesn't hurt to post it here, even if it just gets ONE person interested.

If I was old enough to own paypal or a credit card, I would help you out Snee. Sadly, I am not eligible to help you, but if I could I would. I am glad to hear that you are feeling better. :3 At least the medication they gave you is indeed working. ^^ *hugs* Best of wishes to you dear~ <3

Oh Sneefee...I just saw this note here. I don't often check this account and I haven't been able to really be online due to my own life being up side down. My heart goes out to you! I hope your okay. Hang in there and the moment I have money to commission you, believe me I will email you! Your truly an amazing artist and my favorite TMNT artist! Hope your feeling okay and your have figured out your way with your money issues. I know how it feels hun. *hugs*

Umm I just saw this, glad you are feeling better I'm completely sick of hearing bad news! Did you still need help?  I could probably grab a commission from you or something, lemme know! :)
