Raising money~

Here's the low-down.

Due to gas prices going higher and higher, I'm looking to get rid of my truck. I'm spending about $300 a month in gas and I just can't do it anymore.

So I'm in the market with looking for a new vehicle.

Ultimately, I'm looking to come up with about $5000.

Now of course, I know I'm not going to get $5000 in commissions, just letting you know what I'm going to try and save up for.

I am, however, asking for help from everyone here on IB for what help they can. If you're looking for a commission, by all means let me know. If you know any one who might be interested in a commission, bring them my way. =3

Of course donations are always welcome but I know for a lot of people, no one wants to randomly give money away for nothing. But if you give me a donation, I would be more than happy to give something in return.

I am considering giving folks cameos in the Gumball Comic that I'm doing as part two will take place at school. So if you're interested, all I'm asking for a donation. The higher the donation, the more involved I'll let your character be in the comic.

To be honest, I'm just throwing ideas out as I'm kinda a little desperate to get rid of this gas-guzzler of a truck and the faster I save this money, the faster my life in general will be.


Since I'm making this journal, here's my current commission load:

Hope all is well for everyone and thank you so much for your business.

*hugs everyone*

EDIT: Hey prices would help huh? *facepalms*

As for the cost, it depends on what you want drawn. I price out each picture differently based on different variables.

However for some kind of a range to give you an idea:

Sketches: $15-20
Lineart: $20-$25
Cell shading: $25-$30
Detailed shading: $35+

Honestly, if your truck is dependable and reliable, you're better off driving it rather than getting rid of it for the simple reason that whatever you replace it with may not save you money long-term.
That's why I still drive my truck.  Course it's a small pickup so it's not quite as bad on gas as a bigger one would be.

That's the thing, it's a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

I average about 12 miles per gallon and work is about a 25 mile round trip. So it's about $10 just to go to work. Not to mention it's technically my dad's truck.

Long story short, I want to get rid of it so I can get my father back out of my life. That's all I'm going to say about that.

But I understand where you're coming from but right now, if I got a car that cut my gas in half (300 to 150 a month) than in four months, the money I save would about make up for any work that may need to be done with the car.

But that's why I'm looking to raise $5000. I'm not looking to get some cheap car here so obviously, the car I would replace it would be newer and more reliable anyway.

At least you've got a vehicle someone will want regardless of fuel prices.  If it's in good shape, you should have no problems turning it over.

Well as I said, it's my dad's truck. So I'm not going to be selling it to put towards the new car.

But I'll figure something out.

I would love a truck but wont get one cuz of the same reason.  But my car is good enough for me right now.  Keep a sharp eye, you'll be surprised what you can find for cheaper than that and still have a good car like mine.
