HOLY CANOLIES THANK YOU!!! I hadn’t checked my e-mail yet today, and it looks like we got a doantion that will set the blog up for the rest of the month! Looks like I won’t be able to tease you all with cliffhangers like I had been hoping. Rats! ;D
Limited Mistletoe Filly Chrysalis Commissions!
Hey all! So, here are those Mistletoe images I was talking about! Here’s how it works:
- These images are bases. They will be cleaned up and done up in the comic’s style when they are purchased. The pony/quadruped of your choice will be in the grey pony’s place.
- The first three start at $5. Donate $5 or more to Filly Queen Chrysalis, and you’ll get it!
- The last one starts at $10. Donate $10 or more to Filly Queen Chrysalis and it’s yours.
- Please title your donation “Mistletoe” and send all references to ryuredwingsreturn! These are first come, first serve so if you really want one, jump on it!
- If you have any questions, just shoot me a message!
(One even got bought right even in the stream! Get ‘em while they’re hot, people! If they’re really popular, I may do more.)
Things are looking up! Well, as up as they could be, I suppose? There aren’t any job prospects for either my husband or myself, but we are officially on unemployment and I’m getting my resume together with help from a job counselor at church. She thinks I should put FQC on it!
We’re really good at budgeting though, so we should be alright with gas and food.
We’re no longer in danger of starving, which is great! But we could still use money around here to help pay for the random emergency things, kitten chow for Loki, and household things. (Also for Christmas presents? I really, really want to get my husband the new Zelda game; it’s the only thing he wants!! ;A; )
The Usual Stuff
As usual, I’m wide open for commissions! I actually haven’t gotten a single one yet this month… I kind of wish I had some more so I had something to do besides play video games. »;;
Filly Queen Chrysalis has only gotten one donation this month, so you can always chuck some money over that way so I have more updates to do! $15 or more gets a guaranteed story update, and there are two more slots left!
You can donate via the Donate button on the page!
So, Queen Silverwing, Chrysalis’ mother, is going to be making an appearance in the comic pretty soon. People tend to ask what she looks like even though she’s already been introduced, and I get a lot of questions about her, so I figured it was a good idea to give her some more screentime. I’m pretty sure she’s not going to make an appearance in this week’s update, but she is going to be popping up again soon.
I thought it might be a good idea to give her another look since I drew her almost two years ago now. She’s a hek of a lot different looking; I basically gave her design a reboot. I tried to simplify her so she’ll be easier to draw over and over again like I will most likely be doing. Number one rule of comic making: don’t make your characters’ designs too complicated; you’ll save yourself a lot of pain in the long run.
"Mommy, mommy!! That’s my mommy!!"
So, question for you all.
I’m thinking of doing limited (about 4) mistletoe commissions where your OC, or whoever, gets to give Filly Chrysalis a smooch on the cheek. I figured it would be a cute, Christmas thing! It would probably be something where if you donated $5 or more to FQC, you’d get one.
Would anyone be interested in something like that?
Thank you very much!! We really appreciate it over here!!
The blog will be updated two times this month now!
Important Stuff First!
- Filly Queen Chrysalis has been changed over to be run by donations!
- The first Friday of every month, there will be a freebie storyline update.
- After that, the rest is earned by donation. $15 earns a storyline update. $20 earns a cute/funny update.
- You can donate to the blog via the Donate button right on the tumblr page!
Things are looking up from yesterday! The loan Neros applied for from his retirement fund got approved, so we are now okay as far as rent and bills go for a while. However, the point of the loan was to get up enough money so we could move closer to his college (UCONN, anyone?), and, hopefully, some place cheaper!
We’re still most likely going to need some extra money to buy groceries and gas though. I’d rather not rely on the credit cards for that stuff, and also not slowly drain the moving funds either. However, this does mean we are no longer in complete dire straights. And, let me tell you, it’s a load off of me! Yay, no longer wondering if we’re going to have a roof over our heads next month!!
How You Can Help
As mentioned above, Filly Queen Chrysalis is now run by donation. The donations from last month REALLY helped, so thank you very much to our donators! Donators also get a free sketch commission!
Commissions are permanently open!! This is what I prefer over donations since it gives me something to do, and it actually feels like I’m earning money instead of stealing people’s wallets.
Thanks for all your help so far guys!! I can’t say enough how much your support means to Neros and I, and it’s not just the financial aid. It’s the emotional support that’s been coming with it. Everyone’s been so kind and supportive, and it really helps when we’re just feeling kind of crappy over the situation.
(I didn’t want to reblog this yesterday since I had already done a lot of OOC blogging. Here’s an update on what’s going on right now!)
Hey all! So, once again, it’s a new month, and so I have a new earning goal to try and help me and my husband eat! Literally since all of our money is going to have to go to rent and bills this month. So we could really use the help this time around!!
- All prices are negotiable!
- Paypal only!
- NSFW is okay, but will need to be discussed before commission is taken!
If you’re interested in commissioning me, you can contact me on tumblr, note on deviantart, or contact me on furaffinity.
If you want to help us out, but don’t want to commission something, you can always donate to the Filly Queen Chrysalis page!
This kid has no idea how dangerous the thing she is about to do is.
Who’s ready for a story update on Friday? Don’t forget that all the updates after that are funded by donations! Click here for an explanation!
