[Edit] My art has advanced where I use programs more like Paint and Paint.Net so most of my art looks more like actual anime, I've also been using bases where I draw over the original drawing to make it look like someone else. Such as my DeviantID, I drew over it to make it look like me. (And trust me, that is the EXACT look I give when I say that. XD) ^_^

Here is my art, you'll notice most of it is coloring pencil because I have a very limited amount of editing programs actually only one that being Paint)

Hey all.

 As I'm sure you know, I have my tools again and am able to make wooden props for conventions, festivals, etc. However, they are gathering dust because I don't have any commissions. So here I am, once again, asking if anyone needs a wooden weapon or prop for something? Some shapes I can't make, such as thin necked or wonky shaped scythes, or just something that wouldn't be able to properly hold up it's own weight, remember, this is wood we're talking about here.
I can pride myself on only having one complaint about a prop, but I did take off money for the amount of problems I made and saw on the prop.

The tools I use are as follows:
Jigsaw
Dremel
Sandpaper
Clamps
Paint
Paintbrushes
Pencils
Yard Sticks/Rulers
White Pine Wood
Painter's Tape
Hammer if required
Nails
Phillips Head Screws
Phillips Head Screwdrivers
Wood Glue
Electric Drill
Wood Pencil Dowels

When it comes to the actual commissions I can explain the process:

Request: this is where the Commissioner will ask for a weapon or prop, they should send me a reference image of the item in question, understand that I only do Georgia resident conventions, give the date with which they would like me to be done, and get the estimate. Just so you know, the estimate is just that, a guess. It is not a guarantee of the final price, especially with the larger props.
Material Money: this is required since I am a starving artist. I will ask that you send me no more than $20 - $30 depending on the size and difficulty of the item requested. If I require more, I'll ask. This amount will be taken from the final price once the item is finished. The money will be used on materials such as wood, tool bits, paint, and anything else I'll need to make the item. The materials left over after the item completed is mine to use for the next commission I receive.
Process: this means I'll be updating you with pictures and messages letting you know if anything possibly goes wrong or if the prop is feeling so good that I become envious. (such as weight, swing, durability, etc.) I will also be able to show you through video chat if you wish, I can use Skype or Facebook.
Finished Product: this is where it's all nice and shiny because it's completed. Pictures WILL be taken~! I will hold a prop for one year after it is completed for the amount it's worth. After that year, I can sell it to whoever else wants to purchase it, whether or not your money went into it. This does not mean however that you're not allowed to purchase it, it just means it's no longer on hold for you specifically.
The Meet Up/Shipping: this is when I either ask to meet you halfway between our two locations of living (your exact address not required) or I ask you to send the purchase money (shipping charges added to payment) so that I can ship the item you commissioned me for to your address. (exact address required or address where it will be secure for you to receive and enjoy) After you receive the item, I ask that you take some of my cards if I have them available or just explain where you got your prop from so that I might get some more work.
Customer Pictures: I ask that you send me pictures of yourself wielding the item you commissioned me for so that I can see that you received it correctly and I have something to show off to potential customers and friends.
