But these characters I'd like to sell them for what I paid, or what they originally sold for (going by tos so I hope I'm not breaking any rules here). Many of them are characters that I really love and wouldn't sell otherwise but I need the funds x - x.

I recently held a gofundme which got some funds, and I did an emergency customs sale in order to try and raise money faster than I had time to make designs for sale in order to move out by a certain time frame. I didn't end up making enough in time to move before I needed to start paying rent unfortunately. It was a sort of (All or nothing) situation and since I didn't get 100% funded I couldn't go through with the planned move at the time. Though I didn't get to move, they greatly helped in paying my bills and rent in my current place so I wouldn't end up in serious trouble. It gave me time, which is extremely valuable to rework my moving plans so they'd be more manageable (Will still be extremely difficult, don't get me wrong ;A . So, I do appreciate the support and it has helped keep me from homelessness for a bit and gave me time to redirect my plans.
The Situation as it stands
I will be moving out on my own with no family, and no financial support outside of DA so this may still be rather difficult. Where I live currently there are no viable jobs for someone with my health conditions. I have mitral heart valve regurgitation/prolapse and high blood pressure. Aside from that I also have PTSD which makes stressful situations difficult. So, my mental health and my heart health are getting worse and I need to move to a place to better increase my chances of survival.
Note - If anyone wants more details on my health you can note me, I won't bite. I just didn't want to put like, a 10 mile long prognosis and every detail of the outcome of my health (Which is bleak) if I don't get treatment asap.
I will be putting all owed work on hold (Unless it's an emergency, and remember that you are allowed to sell or trade your customs slots if you want. Just be sure to let others know). My goal is to save 2k in 2 weeks to move so I will be making as many designs to move in those two weeks. Then try to move ASAP, and with hopes should be able to get settled and moved within a couple weeks. THEN will be doing customs at 2 a day (Maybe more if I can manage) till they are all completed.
If you'd like to help in the next two weeks that I'll be raising money to move here's a few helpful things
Donations - This is my Paypal.me/MahoHaku, I can grant charity stars and/or give items of equal value for the ARPG
Species owners - If you're a mutual, and would be willing I'd love to do guest designs to try and save up as well ;v;. I don't expect this but it would be fun and helpful at the same time x O x. And of course I'd be forever grateful if any of my friends did designs to help raise money too *Smothers my face* .
Anyway, thank to everyone who took the time to read everything and especially thank you to all those who made it possible for me to have time to change my moving plans and to find a place that was much cheaper and more affordable to move to with viable jobs
Ignore the NFT and forevers, I'm looking more for characters I'll use. As much as I love these little dreamies. Any character that says NFT will simply be tentative in the (I'll be picky) sense. Also put prices next to the ones I can sell as well
Note - Will trade multiples for dream designs!

My admin and I are doing this Design challenge to get us all out of our comfort zones and try new things. I created the challenge to practice anatomy, coloring, and design skill. Hopefully see some improvement in different areas we don't venture to often. Though the Admin and I all have specific traits + Species of plumeria we need to stick to if anyone else would like to join they are free to do so with their own species. Or just with random adopts.
All the design challenges when complete at least in plumeria will be combined into a collage so that everyone can see the various works we've done ;v;b. Also, other groups may also implement this as well if they like and practice with their admin/designers too.
This is not a way to design Plumerian or other people's closed species. You should only use your own species, get permission or make up your own unique creatures ;O;
All designs should be off base
Linework should be set to hardlight/black or overlay (Looking for design/anatomy) more than clean linework.
Medium Complexity design
Only Cool colors
Only Warm Colors
Analogous colors only
Triadic color scheme
Split Complimentary color scheme
Keep it light with accents of dark
Keep it dark with accents of light
3 colors ONLY (no shades/tints/hues etc.) (Can use transparency only)
Color Theory Resource - www.tigercolor.com/color-lab/c…
These below are just to name a few of the most important ones. If these are done the ARPG should be able to start and we can test the sails a bit yvy
Plumeria ARPG to-do list

On blocking - I do not block people anymore (And completely emptied my block list), because I believe that if someone changes or gets better as a person they should be able to come back. Everyone deserves chances and though I may blacklist, or graylist someone I wont BLOCK them too. That way if they do change and want to send a note to ask forgiveness, ask for an apology or apologize they are perfectly allowed to and I'll listen. I'd hope that they'd feel comfortable enough to do so, especially with how I used to be in the past but I've worked really hard to get much better than I was. Life is too short to hold grudges over things that have happened online.
Many CS creators claim publicly that they give people second chances, they constantly are writing apology journals about "Woah I'm so sorry and I've changed into a perfectly nice person please note me if I have hurt you so I can apologize", yet they still keep people blocked that they have hurt and in private still treat people equally as terribly and refuse to believe they could hurt anyone or make excuses why someone deserves the abuse/bullying by them. Excuses like "They are a CS creator" or "You hurt me first by asking a simple question" and so forth. Many of these artists still just silently block people and sweep anyone they've hurt under the rug while not changing a damn thing about how they treat others creating this illusion that they are the good guys. I am not one of these artists and I won't block people or call them out. When I say "please message me if I have hurt you and I'll listen" I don't say it lightly, I really do mean it. I truly do mean it because I want people to be happy. I'm a people pleaser, always have been and nothing is more soul crushing to me than to see people be hurt by something I've done or said and I couldn't help them. Which is why majority of the time if I do upset someone, it's usually a misunderstanding and not intentional.
On CS Rules - There is a lot of stuff going around that I feel is getting toxic here on DA. And that is the tearing down of owners for having certain rules or not having certain rules. And some CS creators policing/dictating to other CS artists how to run their species, meanwhile doing the opposite of what they tell others they can/cannot do. It's unproductive and unrealistic to expect all CS to work the same. There are pros and cons to every group and there is no way to make a perfect group that pleases everyone. Some CS creators acting like their CS group is best and they are the nicest people so they have the obligation to fix everyone else... that they are the CS police (CS superheros) and they reserve the right to be judge, jury and executioner of any CS creator who doesn't follow them in the way they run their groups.
Someone having different rules doesn't make them a crap person, but it's how they enforce those rules that matters. If they enforce it with sass, anger, cruelty, name calling and call out journals vs private messages calmly explaining rules broken and consequences... that's what matters. I honestly couldn't care less what a person's rules in a group were, since they are the ones who made the groups, as long as those rules were run with compassion and respect to the members. Groups would no longer be fun, and people really would feel left out on DA if all groups were the exact same.
Rants peeves - I do rant from time to time, once every full moon about, and I don't mind if others rant. People are allowed to do with their pages what they like. I am not the rant police, like some other people seem to be. Journals and status posts are super easy to delete and if I am not in the mood for drama, or rants I can delete them. Nothing is forcing me to read them so I don't understand why some people feel like they are getting their arms twisted behind their backs to read others > - >. But, my biggest pet peeve is when someone complains about my ranting or anyone else's, in a RANT. They rant about the fact those people rant too, not the topic of said rants, or anything specific. I'm ranting about the HYPOCRISY of the rants, not the rants themselves though... But yeah, I just really dislike those who say "I hate seeing artist rant it's gross and shows how garbage they are" but when posting it they are ranting, and then they are the same people who also post rants often like "It's so gross this artist does this" or "How can someone do that". If someone is going to rant, at least they shouldn't be a hypocrite while doing it. They should own up to the fact that they rant, and give other people the same privilege to rant as they do.
This user GWKTM has been harassing yangu for free work multiple times and refused to stop asking. Constantly claiming they are a non-for-profit when they seek to gain a profit with their work. They beg for animations incessantly. I confronted them to get them to stop bothering my friend yangu and they blocked me and then continued to bother her anyway. It didn't stop until Yangu blocked them. If you are in an animation community, or you are an animator please block or remove them from your groups/watches. They are very toxic people and harass many people for free stuff. They have been kicked from Furaffinity because they pushed their luck too far and decided to come to DA because they thought people here had low enough self respect they would do 60 FPS animations for free (When the industry standard is 24 FPS) and follow deadlines and be on call like paid artists. They have ZERO respect for animators or anyone they ask for free work. And blocking is the only way to protect anyone from their begging and harassment.
This was their last message to yangu, she can also provide the note they sent and other comments if asked. comments.deviantart.com/4/1123…
They have asked SO MANY people they don't even remember who they have asked before. When I talked to them they actually accused me of being jealous that they were asking yangu for free stuff a lot and not asking me. As if it was a privilege to be harassed for free stuff on a monthly basis.
I just want to clear up that I never want anyone to leave DA nor have I told anyone to leave. I have never attacked someone for not accepting my offers. If I do not get accepted I literally type "That's okay, Thank you for the opportunity ;v;", when I enter contests I never call people names or insult their work. If I comment under another entrant it's usually something like "I really hope you place, this is so nice!" or "I'm glad you entered, your work is awesome and will definitely +Watch". When people say "Help, I don't know what to do, any advice? Please be gentile" I reply with things like "Try this resource [link], it really helped me out and it will definitely help you out. Hope everything gets better, you have lots of support from DA." and then I'm accused of Joking about their situation and laughing at them like an evil person.
I always try to be kind and whenever I take the time to reply to someone it means I really care ;v;. If something sounds off, or someone is saying something ask me if it's legit or what I meant before assuming it is fact and it's me being an evil popular artist. I was immensely bullied growing up and I would never intentionally do that to anyone else. I don't bite, and I really want to clear up misunderstandings before they turn into full blown drama. Someone recently took part in rumors about me and never once asked me in years of knowing them if they were true (Just kept the rumors to themself) and once I said one small critique or asked for advice they exploded and unloaded dozens of false accusations on me out of nowhere and told everyone about me without giving anyone my side or letting me debunk those false rumors. Anyone who knowingly partakes in rumors knowing full well they are rumors is not a good person. Especially if they lob attacks at people for them.
If anyone purposefully partakes in rumors and actively talks behind my back knowing full well they are lying, or they are doing it on purpose to stir the pot I WILL block. I have said this before and I'll say this again. I have ZERO tolerance for bullying of any kind whatsoever. 12 years of bullying for a 25 year old is enough. I don't need anymore of this in my life.
And to make it easier on me, please comment below this journal linking the adopt you need refs for so when I do send refs I have it all in one journal rather than scattered through my inbox like needles in a haystack.
- Note, I will not do white shading like there is above. No shading this time around.

What You'll getPhysical Art sent to you

Comment with character references and what you'd like (Bust or Fullbody) and if you are in US or not.
How to Commission
These are not first come first serve! I'll pick characters I think will look really good in gold art!
Slots are not determined at this point. I'll pick however many I am comfortable with, or want to do. I'll do at least 2 minimum but may do more if I like a lot of characters and want to draw them.
- Multiple complex characters
- Feral, Anthro, Human, CS characters
For best results
Busts Are ideal for very complex and/or human characters
Fullbodies are Ideal for ferals and/or simple characters
My pen can't get thinner in any way so detail is better in bust, and simple is better in full body ;v;
The New Account
Next I'll do one of my own characters beaded to try my hand at a custom design. Once I'm comfortable with custom designs I'll possibly take one or two beaded customs over at MahoMoota. In the mean time I'm going to work on owed work over here whenever I can.
Thank you all so much for the bead purchased custom design commissions! I've gotten well over a dozen new colors already and am planning on projects for them. Most of my planning is done at work xOx. Recently they've hired a new person so hopefully I'll have more time to work on my art work in the next coming weeks. Every day off of work I've been working a little bit on each of the current owed customs (Not bead trade ones quite yet) and hope to get those done soon but owed work will be pretty slow till my work gets some more help. Also will take less custom/adopt work in after the bead trade commissions to do beadwork instead. My work is pretty bright with the lights, and then to come home to a bright laptop screen has kept my eyes blood shot for 2 weeks now since my eyes only get about 6 hours break from bright lights a day. Also causing my vision to get heck of a lot blurrier too, possibly from the dryness I assume. I hope it isn't actually damaging my eyes ;A;. Anyway, those are the most major updates I can think of. My next day off I'll be doing owed work and some designs for sure though along with wrapping up the season of love event at Coadle-Cove.
