OK people, I want to say this once for all. I can’t hold it anymore.
Thank you! Thank you with all my heart!
In these days, I received a lot of support. Not only donation, but also kind words, comments and your reblogs.
Seriously, the quantity of and appreciation I received left me floored. I have literally no words. I have no words to how people wanted to give me even a piece of their life to support someone like me.
Many people said that this community is terrible. Maybe it’s true, maybe the “bad side” is really terrible… but it’s compensated by an awesome side where people support eachother, no matter what. That’s why I’m still here: I want to ignore the “bad side” and stay with the awesome people because here is where the love and support flows.
Again, thanks. Thanks a lot. As I said, no words can describe how I’m thankful for you. I’d like to meet everyone, give them an hug and many other things. Thank you. One more time.
If you asked me something, don’t worry: I’m slow because I also have to study but if you are in my list be sure that your commission will be made. Slowly but surely, no one escapes. Also, if you’ll need any kind of support, including moral one, I’ll be here to listen your stories and let you steam off your anger/sadness/frustration/et cetera. Just contact me.
This post is for you. Thanks community! *hug*
OK, people. This is important. A LOT. So please, read everything and don’t stop because it’s too long.
There’s something I never told you: the financial problems of my family are EXTREMELY poor right now. So far we lived quite normally, but in these days we hit the lowest point.
Our electricity got lowered and sooner or later the gas and connection will be cut, not counting we have to pay at least a little the bank loan or they are going to take an house we are selling and which is our only hope to raise some money. And so far no one seemed interested.
Just to make it worse, we cannot buy even the BREAD. No, I’m not joking. This is just what happens when your father is an idiot which says “I work all day!” but barely brings a cent at home. Since YEARS.
Here I need your help: at first I needed the money I was saving for a new PC, but now there are more urgent things, like I told you now.
Please, do the following: give me something from 1$ to… whatever you want and I’ll draw you something you ask. Obviously, don’t expect something great if you give just 1$: I’ll draw something worth the money. More you give, better will be the work. You can send them via PayPal at email@example.com
If you don’t want to give me anything, AT LEAST REBLOG THIS POST. Please, it’s important. Thank you.
DO NOT “LIKE” THIS POST. IT DOESN’T HELP ME AT ALL.
((I have never told you about my REAL situation because I didn’t want to make you worried. But now I have no choice. I must do something or… I don’t know what is gonna happen. Please, help me.))
((Before working on the next post, I wanted to spend a bit of time for this.
Few days ago, that person who made me a donation returned and gave me something more.
Seriously, when you do such things to me I can’t just take them and shut up: I WANT to give something back.
Dear donor, unfortunately I don’t know your OCs or favourite charas, so… I made this instead adding also… err… I think… something we can call “autograph”.
I also took advantage to thank properly who is still here. Consider this the “true picture of the anniversary”. Thank you very very much!
Now… IMPORTANT STUFF.
Let’s talk about donations: like I said, I don’t like take without give back, so I got this idea:
You want to give something to me? Fine, you can. BUT… you MUST tell me also what you want me to draw and I’ll do something of equal value. For example: if you give me 1$, I’ll make you a sketchy head. Just to give you an idea of what I mean.
Please, really, ASK ME SOMETHING if you want to give me money. It’s not just a matter of kindness, I also need practice to improve my sh***y drawings.
Last of all, there’s something else you can do for me but without give me your money: click THIS LINK, sign up to the site and make at least one visit per day. That’s all.
The site may appear in italian language but don’t worry: you can change it on the bottom of the page.
Each visit you’ll make will give me some cents that with time may become precious.
Aaaaand… I don’t have anything else to say. Except thank you one more time for your support!
See ya, Modest Subjects!))
#35 - Part 2
((And here it comes! I’m managed to get the permission tu bring the scanner in my room, in this way I can work more easily.
Who has a good eye won’t miss the many mistakes. Like the Modestia’s mutant mane.
Oh, and before I forget: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT… MODEST SUBJECTS!
Uhhh, I found a nickname!))
((I woke up few minutes ago, I opened my e-mail and received a message from PayPal which tells me that on of my followers called Vladislav Borisov (yes, I write his name because he DESERVES credits and MUST be loved) donated me 10 euros to continue my tumblr.
OH. MY. GOD. YOU!!
THANKS FROM THE DEEPEST DEEPNESS OF MY HEART!
You know what? I’m so euphoric that I took a decision. I wanted to avoid to phisically take the scanner from my father’s studio because it’s quite a mess put it back in place (and he doesn’t like it much), but just for you (not only him, but EVERY SINGLE FOLLOWER) I will literally STEAL it and scan the pics.
They’re not ready yet, but after such a thing I want to finish this story arc and return to questions as soon as possible.
And you, Vladislav, thanks again! I won’t forget this!
And again thanks to all my beloved followers!
I must find a nickname for you… hmm…))
((a bit of teaser just for you. First because I like the expression, second because I want to thank every follower which is still with me!))
Ask Princess Modestia is 2 years old today!
((Oh god. Time passes quite fast. I have to hurry and find a way to scan the new images.))
((I have two news: one bad and one and half good.
Let’s start with the bad news: I can’t upload the next post because I can’t phisically access the scanner. To upload the pictures I had to use my brother’s laptop and connect it to the scanner that is in another room. But recently the laptop screen got broken and the minimum movement makes it turn off.
The script and good half of the drawings for the next post are complete already but I can’t submit them due to this problem.
Now the good news: I’m managed to make work properly SAI on my brother’s Mac using Parallels Desktop. So, if I’ll grow tired of making you wait I’ll draw from scratch the next post on it, just for you with chances of livestreaming the work.
And last, the half good news, related to the previous: probably many of you don’t know it, but I have another Ask Tumblr that is Duel Monsters themed called Ask Candlestick (a shameless self-insert since it’s my ponysona). Due to problems with my own PC (got broken) I couldn’t continue it, but now that I can use SAI again I’m going to update it in the next days.
Warning: in Ask Candlestick I’m not going to limit my language, so expect the character say pretty much everything. Bad words and innuendos too. Keep your eyes on the “Tumblr Rating System” on the right column of the blog to know what you’re going to see in the blog updates.
That’s all for the moment. I’ll keep looking for solutions. As always, thank you for staying with me! My life is hard, but I won’t stop.))
((So, right now I’m looking for a laptop for about 500 euros minimum.I need a pretty good one in order to I can work everywhere with Photoshop and SAI, even outside my house. Right now I have just 50 euros (plus my brother has a debt with me of about 200 euros) and I’m trying to gather them with some little works like making posters for events (concerts, parties, et cetera). I have a tablet (Wacom Bamboo Fun) and I’m doing quite well with it, but I prefer drawing lineart with pencil on paper (it’s much simple for me. And best of all: there’s no risk that the file gets corrupted. XPP).
If you want to help me, I have opened sketch commissions some time ago (the actual prices can be found in my Mod Blog: http://blackbsuniverse.tumblr.com ). But probably I’ll open digital commissions too if I manage to make things not too bad with Photoshop (SAI doesn’t work as I want on Mac TT_TT. One more reason because I MUST get a new computer).
Aaaand that’s all I think. Thank you so much for staying with me! You watchers are awesome and I’d be nothing without you! Oh, just a little detail to close: please, send questions for me to my Mod Blog in order to I can keep my ask blog clean. Thank you for your collaboration!))
#35 - Part 1
((YAY! I don’t know how, but I’m managed to do a new post!
The problem with my computer is not solved yet. Still trying to buy a new one. Right now I must use the ones owned by my brother and it’s quite frustrating switch between laptop and Mac every time he needs one of them. This continue “moving” doesn’t help me to update regularly this blog.
So, until my problem isn’t solved, you must be VEEEEEERY patient. Updates will be slow like hell. But I want to keep open this tumblr. I have many projects in my mind and I don’t want to waste them.
Aaaand that’s all. I hope you’ll enjoy the new post and see ya to the next part! Thanks to everyone who waited without leaving!))
((I’m still waiting your e-mail: I need to show you a preview before I finish the commission. I tried to check your tumblr but your ask box is closed. Please, send me your e-mail, thanks.
This message will be deleted later. Sorry for inconvenience))
(( 1) Yes, I received your question. But I’d like that questions to me, the moderator, goes to my mod blog: blackbsuniverse.
2) Right now I’m not able to work properly: my PC is gone and I’m forced with my brother’s ones, which isn’t very comfy since often I must switch between them or can’t use at all. I’m anyway trying to raise some money with sketches commissions. When I’ll get enough money I’ll buy a new PC and I’ll continue again where I stopped. I just ask you to be very very patient. Thank you!))
I think people are important and everyone needs a chance. But sometimes I notice that there are some famous people who seem to don’t appreciate that. They should remember that they are famous because of people around them and without their support they are nobody.
This is what I want and must remember, ‘till the end. I want to give to most people (not everyone, unfortunately: too much for only one person. XP) which are still with me the best I can.
I take advantage of this to give an advice for who in future will be famous (who knows. May happen someday. Life is unpredictable): stay humble and give at least a word to everyone. Listen them and, if you can, answer the highest number you can handle. You can’t take without give, after all.))
((I don’t like take without give, makes me feel… hmm… “someone-not-good”. If you want to give me something please, ask me something too. I’d be happy to pay you back with sketches.))
