Digital commissions 2017 by Raygirl13

READ FULL DESCRIPTION if you're interested, please. Thank you! 

Finishing pending slots. 

Pixlr (old, pencil version) IconSLOTS AVAILABLE AND/OR TAKEN: 



Books Emoji  DETAILS:

Read description of each type of commission. All digital commissions are meant for size A4 (21 x 29,7 cm) in JPG format (note me if you need another one) and come with my signature and the year they have been made. 

Police fella (Works)RULES:

  • If you are interested in this commission, you may send me a private message. (Do NOT post a message on this deviation for that). 
  • I will only do A4 size commissions for now.
  • You may ask me for any character you want and even a specific type of background, but read the specifications on each commission first. 
  • You need to provide in your message a full description of your character/s (physical and personality) and some reference pictures as well so I can get a better idea of it.
  • I will also need your e-mail address so I can send you the previews of the process.
  • If you want to use the final commission for any other than personal uses, we can arrange that, but you'll need to give the proper credit to the artist. In other words, do NOT remove my name from the picture and respect the copyright by adding a URL on your project to my deviantart profile so other interested people can find me. Buying art doesn't mean taking credit for what somebody else made.


Pencil 2D Icon FEEDBACK:

All details must be agreed before I start. Minor changes will only be permitted on the Sketch part. In ink and color commissions, when I begin the lineart, no more changes will be allowed. 
I will send you by e-mail two preview images of the commission during the process: 1 for the sketch (and the remade/fixed ones) and 1 when the picture's finnished. 

MailTIME AND SENDING THE ART:

  • Each picture takes up to 1-2 weeks to be done, if there are no changes to be fixed. BUT in case there are several commissioners at the same time, the first to order will be the first I will begin with. I'll finish one single picture at a time, so first come, first served. If you have commissioners before your order, you'll have to wait until I finish theirs first. When I begin with yours, I'll send you a message and you'll be able to wait 1-2 weeks max. until it's done (even less if I can). 
  • Once the commission is finnished, you will get another e-mail with a preview. If you didn't give me an e-mail before, I'll then ask you to provide me with one so I can send you the JPG file in high quality and full-size. 

Money Bag EmojiPRICE:

Check out the deviation above to see all prices and details.

PayPal bulletPAYMENT:

  • All payments must be done via Paypal. (I will give you more details once I begin your commission)
  • I will take 50% of the total amount in advance (before I begin your commission) and the other 50% after the commission is finished. When the total payment is complete, I will send you the file in HD to the e-mail you provided me with. 
  • There won't be any refunds of money once I start, but if you change your mind we can arrange an agreement. Just tell me, I won't bite you, I promise ;) (Wink) 

fella thinking ( Reactions )QUESTIONS:

If you have any general doubts, you can comment on this journal so everybody can see it, in case they also have the same question, and I will answer it as soon as possible. If your question needs further information, you can always send me a new private message.

If you accept ALL these conditions and want to own a nice piece of art of your favourite character, then it's settled.

Thank you for your interest! :D (Big Grin)

Books Emoji  DETAILS:

These busts are colored traditionaly on dense paper, size A5 (14.8 x 21 cm), with promarkers, watercolor pencils, black ink and some white acrylic paint or correction pen. All pictures come with my signature and the year they have been made. 

Police fella (Works)RULES:

Mail  TIME AND SHIPPING:

Each picture takes up to 1 week to be done and I'll finish one single picture before starting a new one (I'll follow the order of the slots. First come, first served). Once it's finnished, it's sent as a certified letter with a protected envelope or tube by Spain's usual mail service. The shipping time may change depending on the destination and mail service of the destination zone. In Spain, it can take 2-3 weeks. For International destinations, up to 1 month or some more days.

1 bust = 25€ (+ 1 free badge). The good news? The shipping costs are included worldwide.

  • There won't be any refunds of money, but if you change your mind, you'll get the digital clean sketch either way.

:iconamongststars: WHAT IT IS ABOUT? :iconamongststars:
As the title says, about Ry and Esther. You will have to draw them, of course... but just that? It would be too easy, right? Well, here's why: You have to choose among two categories: 

damphyr Valentine's Day. - Something romantic... or not, but it has to be related with this day. 
damphyr Carnival. - Outfits, fancy dresses, brazilian music and dancing... there's so much to chose when thinking about Carnival! How would our heroes dress up on a day like this? Your turn! 
damphyr Easter. - From pink bunnies to chocolate and eggs. That's a tough one, isn't it? ;P

If you wanted to use mature content, let it be smooth, not too rough. This is a competition for everybody so it's better to do things that are for all people.


:iconamongststars: WINNERS :iconamongststars:
There will be two winners for each category. That means 6 in total. In other words... 3 winners and 3 subwinners. 
You can upload your works for both categories if you please. The more, the better, but you can only win in one of them, obviously. ;)

Well, it seems that this person here :iconkazerxestelaris: is at it again.
He's been giving false "spoilers" about my fanfic in fanfiction. Now he's redirecting people to his deviantart page with the suposed spoilers, using the name "the dark hero", "starlord" and who knows what else; using my real name there. Please, ignore him.

Well, seems that I've dome something and I'm pretty sure it has to lead me somewhere. 

I practically had to leave my job as an English and French teacher at the school I was working. It's alright, everything is fine and the principal was kind and nothing bad happened. It was all because I was about to be called from a certain company to begin working as a graphic designer... but it's been some time and my heart is telling me that this is it. Thanks to my boss, I'm still doing some French classes on mondays, which is very nice, but the rest of the week I'm looking for a chance to get where I'm going.

So, that leads me to the reason why I write this journal:  now that I am "free", I'm thinking hard. My life has always been a bunch of doubts. Where to go? What to do? What branch of the artistic-job world shoud I choose...? But what I really wanted was always there: creating. 

I've seen lots of people from DA, most of them friends or people I admire, that have begun their campaign on Patreon and are now earning more than I earned when I was working. And they have reached a wonderful goal that I wish with all my heart. How did they get there? Some of them began posting comic pages for free just as I did... and others didn't, just threw the campaign and voilà! 100 patrons supporting the cause! Man, that's amazing! Specially because some supporters even pledge with hihg ammounts, such as 50$. I'm not compalining, on the contrary, I'm super happy for them! And I want to get there too and feel that I'm doing the right thing.

So, if there's anybody there who is making a living from Patreon, can you give me some advice about it? Any ideas or telling me story of how did you reached your dream? I need something inspiring right now. Just help me find the way!

And another question for supporters! Would you consider supporting me on Patreon if I began posting the Will this ever end...? comic series again? I would work on both comics, illustrations and even goodies. I know somebody who make mugs, badges and stuff. When do I start? I'm opened to anything you can tell me to light my darkness up. ;) Even if you're not a Patron, please, say something if you want. 


Thanks for being there! :D

:bulletred: Please, don't comment in this journal because I would go backwards XD But read it, please! :bulletred:

As many of you might have realized, you're receiving answers from me from about... 6 years ago onwards. 
The thing is that I'm tired of having so many unanswered messages on my board (1.049 right now, but it was about 1.676 yesterday) and I want to catch up on anybody I can to give them their answers.

There's been a lot of changes in DA and there are a lot of people that have left DA (TimonHakunaMatata, Raymanfan, Zayel, Soadtool, Ren, Miinchy, *Catherin*, SpikeBandicoot93, HibihedgieXD, Ray3885, RaymanSavedMySanity, MelonNakamas, Zellened, lordpolokus, Aliammx, Chaingun-in-my-hands, Gwizdo-Zoe-love, JasonDarkFlashes, PuppetMaster456, CFXentertainment, MegaMan007, etc). All of them left without their answers and I've been obliged to remove the messages cause they didn't go anywhere. I want to apologyze to everyone and tell you that, even if it takes me so much time, I'll answer these 1.049 messages left on my board, even if most of them are to say just "thank you". It's something personal I need to do to feel free of guilt. 

So, thank you for your patience and don't get too surprised. ;) It's also reveiling old memories that were lost and I appreciate you so much! 

Also, sorry if I don't recognize some of you (There's been a lot of changing names too). 

Love you!!!! :kiss:

Hi! 
After my last journal (when I was feelling veeeeery low) and all the answers I got, I've arrived to a conclusion: You're AWESOME! 

And congratulations, you made me cry. :tears:

I have no words to express how thankful I am to have you all here, by my side, and I thank you a lot for your kind comments too. :glomp::glomp::glomp:

Curiously, most of you told me the same: to draw what I like and to do it with the heart. And you're right. I've always been afraid of losing my way. I must say I'm happy you all enjoy Hell and Heaven and yes, I know I might do some more Rayman fanart and continue WTEE too (as somebody kindly reminded me). This one must go after Hell and Heaven I'm afraid. Or maybe if I can reach my goal to work only as a comic creator I will be able to leave teaching for a while and dedicate myself exclusively to my stories, which are much more than you think. Let's say I have more than 30 folders in my computer and each one has several stories in it. ^^; I have material, but I can't do so much if I'm doing my usual job. Don't take me wrong, teaching is great when you have the attention and collaboration of students. However, it's exhausting. Oh, and I'm planning to do more vids too ;) (for a certain someone who seemed interested). 

Somebody told me that I probably want to be "heard" and I think she's right too. Outside DeviantArt (and Youtube, maybe) I have very little communication with readers or fans. In the end, I always come back here because you are my buddies and you listen to me. I feel part of a group that has grown quite a lot in the past years and I must admit this is the only place where I get a certain number of comments. Even for those who can't comment, you always have time to say "hi" and that's something I appreciate too. 

I know I'm not the best in talking. I'm usually out of DA and when I come I read the comments but I can't answer most of them. I'm ashamed of that too. Ashamed Sorry!

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I've read all your advices and that has risen my spirit. I'll keep on working and I do hope someday I'll be able to begin more projects and finish them. :D (Big Grin) 

Thank you my friends!!! I love deviantART! Here's a kiss for you, my love!  :heart:

Maybe I've been doing it wrong since I started? Shrug 
Direct question. I don't have a poll option but I would like to ask you what exactly do you expect me to draw or do. Forget Hell and Heaven if it's not what you want. I'm kindly asking all the gentle readers who are reading these words to tell me what art (e.g. comic, fanart, music and signing, videos, illustrations, realistic paintings, photographs, clay charms, etc.) do you want to see from me.

This is important, I want to compare results so tell me your thoughts please. What way should I take??? Ninja meditate before battle...

Entrando en materia, por fin he terminado el 4º libro de la Colección Amores de Instituto! Se trata de una serie de historias más o menos cortas que cuentan las aventuras y romances adolescentes (de 13 a 16/17 años) que tienen lugar en un instituto concreto. Muchos de los personajes secundarios son también los protagonistas de los otros libros y hoy, para celebrar un año más la esperanza de aquellos/as que todavía siguen solteros/as y esperan encontrar a su media naranja, he publicado el siguiente:

:star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star:

Mi Guardaespaldas

:star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star::star:
     
Eileen Carleton no es como las otras chicas, pero muy pocos conocen su secreto. Cuando su padre, un importante hombre de negocios, regresa de su último viaje, trae consigo una mala notícia. A partir de entonces, Eileen ve toda su libertad destruida. Y por si fuera poco, tiene que aguantarse con estar vigilada las 24 horas por Connor, su nuevo guardaespaldas. Un chico que siempre la saca de sus casillas. ¿Logrará superar este reto?

La obra consta de unas 58 páginas en formato word, por lo que se queda en unas 120 para los formatos EPUB y MOBI (Kindle de Amazon). Viene premiada con un cupón al final de todo, que permite descargarse gratuitamente en mi nueva tienda online los bocetos comentados que realicé conforme escribía la historia. 

La versión para Kindle no ha salido todavía a la venta puesto que está siendo revisada por la web, pero mañana creo ya estará disponible. Su precio será de 1,20 €. 
Ah, pero como me gusta premiar a los primeros, aquellos que estéis interesados, os ofrezco la oportunidad de adquirir el libro a 0,99 € en mi web! 


Aquí encontraréis todo: desde un resumen de los cuatro libros de la colección, hasta las ofertas especiales y los premios ilustrativos. 
La información sobre mis obras se irá actualizando conforme escriba más. Y pronto añadiré otro proyecto estrella a la lista. Mientrastanto, ¿qué tal un poco de lectura para complacer a la imaginación?

Hi there my friends!

Well, today I'm coming to you with a question that is destroying me. I explain: When I color my comics, I always use Photoshop. I don't want to go slow, so I usually use two layers (ink/color) and also the magic wand to create a mask in the ink layer so I can paint the other one without making a mess. What's wrong then? Well, when I use the magic wand and do the whole painting process, I have the feelling that I go horribly slow, but if I try to make it directly by hand (with my tablet's pen and without the magic wand) I go even slower! ^^; 

My question is: Does anybody know about a method to paint in Photoshop faster without leaving blank spaces and stuff? I don't know, something that may help me to go faster. In fact, I've spent two days (the whole weekend) with a page, morning and afternoon, and still I have only done half of the work! I'm a little despered to find a better way. Please help me if you know!!! Thank you in advance!

Only Spanish because I need to know the opinion of my Spanish readers. However, if you wanna know, I only want to find out if there are enough Spanish readers to my webpage or not so I can choose to recreate the web with both languages or not.


:star:ESPAÑOL:star:
Bueno, visto el éxito que he tenido últimamente con mi web de Hell and Heaven, tengo una pregunta para mis seguidores españoles. Os cuento: El host en el que tenía la página me ha estado dando tantos problemas que ha sido imposible incluso actualizar las páginas dle comic. Me he pasado meses así y al final he decidido tomar las riendas y comprar una cuenta host para el cómic. El problema es este: sólo tengo una base de datos, con lo que sólo puedo añadir una lengua. Mi intención, como es evidente, es mantener la versión inglesa, pero con la expañola tengo la duda:

¿Debería comprar una base de datos extra para añadir la versión española? Me cuesta 7,26 € al mes (87.12 € al año + 28.89 € del host). Aunque también podría escoger la otra cuenta donde ya me entra otra base de datos y me cuesta todo 6.04 al mes (quedaría al final por unos 72.45 € al año). 
Como véis, es un pastón que, por ahora no puedo permitirme. Si sois bastantes seguidores de habla hispana podría planteármelo, pero si estamos hablando de un número reducido de seguidores, lamentablemente tendría que cerrar la versión española a menos que quisierais colaborar para mantener la página abierta. Lo que agradecería mucho, la verdad.

Sé que es fastidioso y os pido disculpas, pero de verdad que resulta duro mantener algo que no parece tener salida. A vosotros os dejo elegir. Comentadme o enviadme un PM si seguís el cómic en español para que sepa cuántos sois de momento.

El contador aumentará conforme me entere de cuántos sois aquí en Deviantart. Por cierto, si comentáis aquí, no lo hagáis en Facebook. Necesito saber exactamente cuántos sois y no me interesa tener votos repetidos. Gracias.

Hello my readers! 

I've been trying to fix this damn problem for a month and a half now. I had prepared all the updates all along because I thought I would be able to get in again and tell you about this... but the host is a bunch of technical difficulties right now with wordpress sites and I can't even log in. 

I am telling you this so you can figure out why I haven't answered any messages or even made them appear in the website. I simply CAN'T. And that is getting the worst out of me. Specially because I won't be able to post more pages until I change the host or do something else. I trully wish this will change. For the moment, the pages won't be uploaded but I will try to find another way. 

Some more news, I am moving to Spain again. France was great, but it's time to get home again. ;) No worries, everything is fine, but I need some time while I search an appartment, a new job and stuff. For July, this time, I'll take my online holidays, but I REALLY hope I will be back  in August with new pages and probably a new site. 

Thanks for your understanding and have a good week! :aww:

Alright, this is a journal written specially for some people here in DA that are having success in making me hate this site. (The rest, don't worry and be happy).

So, for those people who are there that are always writing me messages about these subjects:

- Why do you ship this couple? (Basil and Olivia, Rayman and Raygirl, I think is odd, etc.)
- Rayman is mine (and lots of insults).
- You draw well but I think you should do this way... or it would be better if...

What's the matter with you, people?
Seriously, I've ahd enough of this.

1. These last days I've recieved messages from girls who are asking me again and again why do I ship Basil and Olivia and talk me about the pedophilia stuff. AGAIN for a thousand and one times! I ship OLDER Olivia and Basil! And if I did the other way, why do you care? First of all, I don't go on other deviants' profiles to tell them what they should like or not. I am older enough to know what is right and wrong, thank you. Why can't you just leave me alone? I ship Basil and Olivia and I will do it all my life! Point.

2. After that, Rayman and Raygirl? Yes, I do! Why? Because I want, like other many fangirls that love their respective OC's with Rayman. I don't tell them what Raygirl (or Ly, Betilla, yaoi couple, etc) they should ship. They do what they want and I RESPECT their couples! That's what YOU should do! And all those insults and stuff like "Rayman is mine you ***!", you can keep it for yourselves. Grow up a little and you will notice that your childish attitude is getting the worst out of other people who want to be calm and happy. Really, I hate that! Attacking you? You would like that, don't you? No, thank you. I am fine living my life and ignoring your comments because they make me feel sick. AND I'm going to start blocking people like YOU. Seriously, I am usually nice to everyone, but this is it!

3. Critiques, critiques and critiques. Alright, I can accept constructive critiques and comments like "maybe it would look better if you used this color?". But hey, from that to all those comments I recieve every time about how to "improve"? Or people judging my deviations without a critic request. Did I asked for those comments? No. Do I request critiques in my work? No. When I do that, you will be able to criticise. Really, I am tired of recieving messages from people who tell me how I need to do my art. If they were comming from people with a super art gallery I would appreciate it, but... a gallery with pictures made in Paint and plain colors, trying to represent a fan character? A gallery with stolen art from somebody else?? ARE YOU SERIOUS?! When you know how to draw, then come to tell me how to improve. If you can't, then stay away.


And that keeps going on and on. Lots of things that have made me explode. This morning I had a headache only because of that and I really needed to write this journal. Now that I am a little more calm, I tell you this. I don't want to block people and I really want to be friends with everyone, that would be awesome... but I have no other choice than blocking deviants who annoy me all the time. I am sorry but it's enough. If you really are sorry about what YOU have done, you can send me a message with a simple sorry and I will understand. But, if you do your stuff again against me, be sure I will block you. And yeah, you will probably write insults about me and all you want in your profile... but think this: You will be blocked in the end and nobody will care about that. Specially when the deviants know better aobut the person you are trying to sunk. Change your attitude and become a person, not the fool.

Thank you for your understanding and sorry about the comments you have sent to me (I won't answer them).

Yeah, I felt into the same trap as everyone. Just to celebrate some personal success, I am going to start a Tumblr "Ask" blog for my characters.

You can find it here:



Have a nice day everybody!

For all the things I have gone through in the last 6 months (or even more) I think I deserve at least a cookie. ;P

Well, I wanted just to say that, indeed, I am still alive and coming in and out of DA. Always, even if I don't answer messages, which is something I am sorry about. It's not easy, specially when I have moved to another country and have started a brand new life. And when I say brand new I mean it to the point that my life has made a turn of 180 degrees. I even have a new job, a nice one, although I want to have more time to draw again... and that is the reason why I have tried the new Commission's widget of Deviant Art. Not to mention that I definately want to buy a Wacom Cintiq and I am very near of reaching that goal. I just need to earn a little more before, so... here I am. Anybody wants a commission? :D

Nice, I take this moment to also say hello to all of you who have been following me and I am sorry I have been out so much time. Those who are younger will understand in the future why working people cannot do the same as they did when they were students. Use your time well, it's very precious. ;)

Hugs for everybody! :hug:

I've been thinking about it... and I believe that I would need to change my OC's surname (Esther Quesada from my Hell and Heaven Comic). Yeah, he has my own surname, and that's the problem I think... or not?
Anybody can give me nice ideas for surnames? I need Spanish surnames, but I will read all the ideas, even if their English, French, German, Italian, Chinese, American, etc.
Suenames anybody?

Or do you think I don't need to change her surname?

It seems so. TTwTT Someone hacked my account a few days ago and it was such a bad surprise that I'm still recovering. I've tried to send messages to all of my contacts, but surprisingly there's a lot of them (and most of them are from DeviantArt), that couldn't recieve my message, so instead I'm writting a journal to warn you. Here's the message I sent:

:bulletblue: ENGLISH:

Hello!
Well, it seems that someone has hacked my account or password, and unfortunately has been sending spam messages to all of my contacts. I just wanted to warn you about it. I've changed my password again and changed some settings in my account, but if you recieve another message from now on, with spam and links that are suspicious (specially if I don't add my name or my nickname at the end), DON'T follow the links. Remove those messages and tell me about it, please.
The problem is fixed already and you shouldn't have to recieve any more spam mails. ^_^

Thanks for understanding, my friends.

¡Hola!
Bueno, parece ser que me han hackeado la cuenta, así que alguien ha estado enviando mensajes de spam a todos mis contactos. Obviamente he intentado cambiar la contraseña y algunas opciones del e-mail, por si acaso. Conclusión: si recibíis algun mensaje con enlaces sospechosos o spam (y en especial si mi nombre o firma no está en el mensaje) NO LOS ABRÁIS! Ni siquiera sigáis los links, porque puede que os lleven a algún lado donde os hackearán también la cuenta o ves a saber qué. Si seguíis recibiendo e-mails de este tipo de mi parte, después de este mensaje, decídmelo, por favor.
El problema está arreglado, no obstante. Ya no recibiréis más mensajes spam, o eso espero. ^_^

Gracias por entenderlo, amigos míos.

My life is changing!

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 7, 2011, 8:21 AM


After all this time without updating my journal, I feel guilty. BUT... I have to tell you lots of things. Things I'm so proud about that I have to share them. I'll be numbering them so it's easier for you to read.

:bulletgreen: 1. First of all, for those who doesn't know, I'm going to work for the Disneyland park in Paris, France. That's right! I'll be selling food and drinks, but it's such an experience to travel and work in a foreign country that I'm simply too excited to see wrong things. I'll be practicing a lot of French and English, so that's also positive for me, don't you think? Well, it will be for ten days, so I will probably won't be on DeviantArt all the time. I'll be programming the updates for the Hell and Heaven Webpage, so don't worry because they'll keep on coming. By the way, if anybody here is from Paris, maybe we can meet there someday. ;) I would be glad.

:bulletgreen: 2. I wanna travel around the world!!! Sorry, I had to say that. I really want to. TTwTT I've been reacting again to Ireland and Irish songs. I'm in the mood every autumn and spring, and it gets stronger every year. My time is coming, I'm sure. :D

:bulletgreen: 3. Talking about Hell and Heaven... Gosh, how many people read the comic? Seriously, I just recieve comments from 2 people in Spanish and 2 more in English. Nobody else would kindly leave me some comments there? For those who haven''t noticed, Hell and Heaven Comic was moved to another page a long while ago already, and I'm updating the comic every FRIDAY. This is the place:

:star: Hell and Heaven Comic Online! :star:

I need more readers, so it would be a great thing if you please honor me with your presence. ^_^ I'm really putting a big effort into it. REALLY! I've even uploaded a Halloween theme for the chibis and background of the page. Go there, Pleeeeeease???
And if you want you can also vote for Hell and Heaven in TopWebComics. No need to register!

:bulletgreen: 4. I'll soon have Hell and Heaven Volume 1 in E-book (PDF) format in the page. There will also be the printed copy on paper, but that will be on demand only. At least if I'm not selling them anywhere someday. I'll wait to finish chapter 2 on the web to sell them. Volume 1 will be full-colored, A5 format and will have Chapter 1 and 2, and two little drawings of my characters.

:bulletgreen: 5. I'll be uploading a Halloween video soon in Youtube(it's becoming one of my favourite seasons of the year ^w^). I'll bring you the link here and to the H&H webpage, so you will be noticed, don't worry ;) It will be next week or so. Hope so in fact, if Youtube doesn't bothers me with some technical problems. :fingerscrossed:

:bulletgreen: 6. I have a Tumblr account too!!! Just made it last week and I'm quite proud of the results of my CSS-language-tries. Judge yourself:

:damphyr: Esther Q. in Tumblr! :damphyr:

I'll be posting some sketches and other stuff that won't upload in DeviantArt, so you're welcome to go and take a look. There's not much at the moment, of course, but I'll upload more as long as I do new material. ;)

:bulletgreen: 7. I have a lot of comments and replys here in DeviantArt, and they are all lovely... but it's too much to answer right now, even if I love to recieve them. I mean that I'm not sure if I will be able to answer them, so please don't take me the wrong way. I love you, my friends, I really do, but I'm always in a hurry with everything and I can't answer every message I recieve. So please, don't get mad if you don't get an answer.

:bulletgreen: 8. About my other comic, Will this ever end...?... I'm not sure when will I be able to upload a new page, but I tell you that the comic will be in black and white. It will be easier to make and cheapper for you if you really wanna buy a copy in printed format someday. So be it. For the moment, it will stay in DeviantArt. ;)

And... that's all folks! At least for the moment. Take care, have a nice week and be happy! You have a lot to celebrate every day of your lifes! ;D Cheers!
