I often make it a habit of mine to not come to Ink Bunny or Fur Affinity or Twitter with my issues. If I'm struggling with something, I'll almost never share it on social platforms. I'll talk to friends, but I don't like announcing it to people that I don't know personally. Just kind of like a personal buffer I have between me and acquaintances that I kind of want to keep, so I'm going to leave this pretty vague and ambiguous.
Me and some close people in my life are struggling with housing, moving, and general living situations. Money can't solve all of our problems right now, but it would make them a lot easier to deal with. On top of that, I'm forced to deal with all this during my finals (which is why I haven't been drawing lately), so I can't just start taking a bunch of commissions. So here's what the deal is:
Starting now, I'll be doing a raffle for three pieces of artwork from me to three different people (expect something of this quality: https://inkbunny.net/submissionview.php?id=409041). Each ticket will be $5 that you send to my Paypal (SashaBelles@gmail.com). You can purchase as many tickets as you like, say, $20 will buy 4 tickets, and that will increase your chances by that much. When you send your payment, mark "family or friends," as when you choose "goods or services," they expect me to actually send something to you, and I get in trouble if I don't. I'll have to eat a small fee, but it keeps me out of trouble and Paypal likes getting money. In the notes of your payment, please put your Ink Bunny name so I can message you if you've won. Please don't put a link, just your name that's at the end of your IB link. If you send a payment, you understand that there's a possibility you will not win. The raffle will end in a week, June 17th (Monday), 6:00 PM PST, where I'll reveal the winners some time after. If you get your payment in after that time, I will greatly appreciate it as a donation.
I apologize to my current commissioners. Once school is over and once all of this crap is past me, I'll have a lot more time to draw and finish those up; I'm just a little desperate right now. Also, I wanted to do just one dollar tickets, however Paypal fees would take out a much larger percentage than that would be worth, so, sorry!
I know probably not a lot of people will be okay with this kind of business model, but I'm mostly asking for donations here. If you don't like the chances, don't send me money. And don't ask me when I'll be open for commissions, because I really don't know. Also, if I see someone commenting on this journal with "I'll take one!" when you clearly haven't read the rules, I'm going to call you dumb and throw an egg at you.
So to reiterate so that no one is confused: - There will be three winners - Send $5 (or more, in $5 intervals) to SashaBelles@gmail.com via Paypal - Send as "family or friends" - Put your Ink Bunny account name in the notes of the payment - Raffle ends on June 17th (Monday), 6:00 PM PST (US west coast) - Thank you <3
Edit: when you leave your name in the note, PLEASE put no other information other than your account name. I don't want references to the site or what the payment is for. Thank you.
