Thinking about writing commissions

Posted 1 month, 11 hours ago by circlejourney

I've considered doing writing comms on a couple of occasions, but then I realise I don't know how it'll work with my writing style. I tend to need pretty deep knowledge of the subject in order to write about it, and I wonder if people who take writing commissions ever run into trouble trying to get the info you need for the writing. Or do you take a lot of creative licence? And do you send progressive drafts (that seems kind of hard, considering it takes quite a bit of time to read a piece of writing)?

Guys you should check out my brand new user profile theme. No reason other than that I'm proud of it!

My old profile was the same for almost 2 years and I made it before I'd learned Bootstrap, so it feels great to finally have something new that actually resizes properly for mobile.

Among other things, the new profile shows more info in a less cluttered way! And also, it's finally giving me a way to use the cool chibi pagedolls that I've drawn and had gifted to me.

I wrote short "titles" for everyone on the page that you can read by hovering over the icons. I hope that makes for some fun browsing. Thanks for looking!


Here it is!

The sequel to my code editor, this tool lets you view how watermarks will look on your art, without repeatedly uploading and regenerating like you have to on Toyhouse. If you find bugs, you can respond on the related thread. Hopefully that's a time saver for anyone who needs it. You can also use it to apply watermarks to art if you want to!


Just a few examples of the images it spits out (tile, stretch and center watermarks):

Help me vote on which OC(s) I should post next

Who should I post next??

7 Votes Kerai
6 Votes Vijay
5 Votes Si-Hyeon
15 Votes Lavelua

Hi guys! I'm back and I am absolutely stumped as to which character(s) to post next. I kind of like them all equally, and the main thing all of these OCs share is that they are all pretty fleshed out but kinda lacking in proper full body art. So I've decided to leave this to a poll.

1. Kerai. He's Fen's other best friend, completes the "main trio". Looks like a jock (and kinda is one?) but he's sentimental and kinda soft. Collects stamps and coins, thinks local history is neat. Will protect his friends with his life.


2. Vijay. Sparkle emoji personified. Social media influencer, everyone goes to him for accessorising tips. The Idea Guy; a small number of his ideas are actually good, most of them make you go "what sort of mind comes up with these". Hinalei's bestie since they ran against each other for Treasurer.


3. Si-Hyeon. The book club's founder, president and only member. Has a talent for making every conversation about the book club. Strong-headed, hopeless romantic, has a flair for drastic measures and dramatic gestures. Has a crush on Hinalei...may or may not have given her a heart-shaped box of chocolates once.


4. Lavelua. Nervous, head in the clouds, has an emotional support chicken that she brings to school. Famous for rule-breaking shoes that she has friends draw on whenever she's bored. Doesn't have the best grades, but she tries.


Mutuals only. No strings attached, I honestly just enjoy making them.

Examples of stuff I've made

No limits, just DM your ideas to me and I'll do something with them. Mockups are helpful, but I can take text descriptions too. I can also make a single widget, or help you fix an existing code, or edit a code if the original creator allows edits! Will close if I get too many tho.

Hi! I'm running an OC zine (with @Anolee as a co-mod), and I completely forgot to mention it in here till now. I'd love to give everyone I know a chance to enter so here's the link!

Although apps were supposed to close tomorrow, I'll probably keep the form open for 5 more days for TH users, just so anyone who's seeing this for the first time has the time to consider and submit their applications. I'm looking forward to looking through the applications!
