I'll be working on my thesis paper for this week, so I'll be a bit inactive here.
If you still want to commission me please note me as always, but keep in mind I won't get to your note until I'm finished with my paper!
I'm doing fine for now, guys! This semester has been kicking my butt emotionally and financially, but I'm doing fine for now! Also next week I'll be streaming since it'll be Thanksgiving break and I can work on the next Nuzlocke page!
I just want to say thank you for being patient!
UPDATE 11/2: I will be accepting points for commissions!
But here's how it's going to be done:
1.) As always, NOTE ME your commission! We'll discuss the prices and whatnot.
2.) After that I'll open my commissions widget, you pay there
, then I'll close it (I'll already have the points and it will be in my earnings page! I should be able to convert them into money in 2 weeks to my PayPal!)
That's pretty much it!

Hey, guys. I'm at the halfway point of this semester and it's been crazy busy. I've been working on not only my work for classes, but I've been looking back on some art that I've done here at the college. I'm trying to figure out which paintings are good enough to be in my upcoming show. This semester has been really stressful for me mostly because I had to buy my frames and certain things for matting my prints. I also just recently had to buy my postcard announcements which cost over $80. My professor has been relying on me to assist her in the studios and print labs because she had broken her back late in the summer. Since I'm the only senior in Fine Arts who DOESN'T commute, she relies on me since, you know, I live on campus. More convenient for her. She also asks me and other students to buy more supplies for class such as paint thinner, painting medium, gesso, paint, canvases, etc. So, I had to go to Jerry's Artist Outlet, Michael's Arts and Crafts, Home Depot, Lowes, and I even had to order online. And now...I'm nearly broke
I'm not poor, but when it comes to school and thesis, my wallet is just pouring out money and I have, like, nothing left for art. I'm in serious need of cash, like pronto. Why? I don't have enough plexi glass for framing my prints (even finding/buying specific sizes is pretty hard since I have big prints, about 15'' x 17''), My professor doesn't have enough framing clips (I need to order them but they can be pricy since they're professional ones), I need to buy illustration boards for matting prints, and I need to buy more brushes. Basically, I need money for all my senior thesis needs. My professor has given us all that she could afford and the college really doesn't seem to understand what we artists go through. They don't really pitch in that much. Yeah, my college is pretty much shit. So yeah, buying things for thesis is expensive and I don't want to mooch off my parents. It's my responsibility and my show.
I was wondering if any of you would be willing to help me! Please!!! I need your help!!! I'm actually pretty desperate!!! And I need support in any way possible!!!
Commissions have been open since Summer, so if you'd like to commission me, I would greatly appreciate it! Here's a link for the prices:
COMMISSIONS: Rules and Prices + OPEN!CHANGED THE PRICES TO SEEM MORE FAIR (they made no sense either way haha.)

This would really help me out, guys!!! UwU
---------------------------------------------------------------Last Year at College + Discontinued Nuzlocke soon?
Aug 29, 2015
On Monday, I'll be returning on campus for my last year of college. This summer went by so fast and I barely did a thing. Anyway, I’ll be packing up a lot of bags and I’ll be rooming with strangers. College went by so fast. I kind of want to cry and I'm getting choked up just thinking about this. After this year, I'm practically on my own. I'm out there in the world. It's pretty scary just thinking that, to be honest. So, during this semester, I have to prepare a gallery of my artwork that I’ve created over the years I’ve attended this school. I have to make a portfolio, Make a slide show of one, save one on a disc, write a Thesis PAPER (which is about 5 pages), and I need to sell my art. .__. On top of that, I also want to attend ANOTHER school (SVA) but I won’t be doing that for a while because I need to pay off some student loans. Unless I can work at SVA while attending it… but I’m not sure if I’m allowed to do that. I’ll contact them after I write this journal.
Now, about my Nuzlocke:
I know people are going to be disappointed, but there MIGHT come a time where I'll have to discontinue Eliza’s White Nuzlocke.
And, no, I won't be too upset if I have to do that. I've spent almost five years working on this series (some Nuzlockes on this site are still going on much longer than mine! O_O), I've grown to love these characters I've made and canon characters I rewrote, and I've met so many good friends through this community. Heck, I even got a club and I got some of my friends into Pokémon because of my comics, for the most part! It’s not a perfect comic, there are A LOT OF FLAWS, but I enjoy working on it. I've started Nuzlocking back when Nuzlockes were in their prime (2010-2011) and it was a good time. Now Nuzlockes are everywhere. And ANYONE can do them. And if someone stops their comic, there’ll always be another one to read.
It's the same with a lot of comics, but you get the point.
I mean if you can make a good one that's endearing and/or funny, awesome! But some have used them to get popular, which is pretty stupid. I mean, yeah, I'd like some recognition with my art, but Nuzlocking is a stupid way to gain recognition, especially if one doesn't care and just half-ass the story and comic.
But, anyway, people need to understand, Nuzlocking is NOT a career
. These are for fun. Not to mention, great for cartooning practice. Hell, for any type of drawing practice and writing practice. Now, I'm not stopping it for now. I'll still work on it, but school will be in the way and updates will be slower than usual. But if I have to stop it, I'll make summaries.
I don't want to leave my readers hanging! I want to show you Eliza’s journey from the beginning to the end. I know a lot of Nuzlockers just STOP their comics and leave it with no ending, but I want to give you guys an ending. If I stop it and make summaries, I hope people will understand why. If not, then...well…I don’t know what to say.
The reason why I MIGHT
have to cancel it eventually is because I DO have a career in mind! Remember this?
I want to make this a reality. I know I won't make it a reality quickly, but I want to make it. I want to learn how to animate and create my own animations. I want to hire a team of amazing artists and writers. I really want to work on some cartoons. So in order for that to happen, I want to attend SVA School of Visual Arts in NY, Manhattan. I heard about it from a graduate animator I met last year. He told me about the professors who work there and some amazing people who attended (John R. Dilworth and Rebecca Sugar just to name a few!). It got me excited. I really want to get into that school! When I do get in, and if I'm still working on this comic, I'll have to make summaries.
And I think making the pages shorter was a good idea. They really take a lot out of me. >_<; TL;DR
While I do enjoy working on this comic series, there will come a time where I MIGHT
discontinue my Nuzlocke. I’m not discontinuing it now, but when I’m face to face with my future career and if I'm still working on my comic I’ll for sure be stopping it, but ending it with summaries. Nuzlocking is not my career. Nuzlockes are fan comics. I want to learn how to draw cartoons and animate eventually.
( took me three hours to write this thing. My internet kept giving up. >__<; )
