A very special commission offer!
Why is it special? This will be the last time that i will take any sort of custom art doll.
We were hit with some very large vet bills for our cat, Cricket, while also trying to move into a new place. To say we are drawn thin on funds is an understatement.
This offer is for a custom doll between ten and fifteen inches long/tall.
These dolls are soft bodied, so no inner wire for posing!
I will work with you directly to design a doll, or adapt one of your characters into doll form.
you will get many work in progress shots and I will keep you as involved as I can!
Shipping is free!
I will draw a piece of art to go along with the doll for you.
You can expect them by the end of the year!
I will work on a first come, first served basis.
So if you buy first, you get it sooner, basically.
I am able to begin work on dolls within the next two weeks!
If interested please contact me through my email, at Tortleini@aol.com!
Thank you, and any signal boosts are very appreciated! uwu
Anyone who reblogs this post in the time it takes to fill the five slots is going to get entered into a random number drawing for FREE a semi-custom doll!
You will be able to throw an idea at me for me to create, or design a doll based on fabric I already have, for free, if you win!
Only one reblog per person! (that’s all that shows. Reblogging more just to boost is very nice, though!)
No contest blogs, that defeats the purpose. I will check.
Likes don’t count.
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
From the film’s IndieGo page:
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

i keep seeing the fursona generator but never a link to it, can you post it?
here it is!
speckled dragon. when you see it you are filled with an ancient fear. it floats about a foot off of the ground.
I’m okay with this.
OBSCENELY BRIGHT YELLOW hydra. it is heavily scarred. instead of eyes there are just more ears.
ancient wyrm. its eyes are pitch black and cause those who look directly into them for too long to slowly grow older. it consumes only blood.
My fursona is apparently One.
black and orange spotted snake. it plays the harp. it has demonic wings.
i’m litERALLY CRYING
speckled rooster. to look into its eyes is to peer into a distant abyss. fireflies circle it constantly.
oh my gods it’s ACTUALLY ME
giant fennec fox. it is a knife collector. it cries all the time and can’t really do much about it.
Change knives to keys and it’s all true.
I PROMISE I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU GUYS.
I’ve been so insanely busy with costume crap for Dragon*Con and actual real work and family junk I feel a little bit like a whirlwind right now but I promise I’m not abandoning you all.
Also for those who have asked - Liam will be available soon, I promise! I just haven’t had time to sit down and knock him out yet.
Anyway you all know how this works by now:
- Someone is getting a lacrosse hoodie
- any size, any character, shipped anywhere
- To enter: Like and/or reblog this post ONE TIME. Please don’t spam or you run the risk of breaking the notes and ruining my day.
- This giveaway ends on TUESDAY, AUGUST 19th at 11PM PST.
- I will message the winner ASAP after that. Please see the above note for how crazy it’s been for me right now though so there might be a bit of a delay. Just a heads up!
As always, hoodies are available here.
My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.
To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…
Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.
My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams

Goodbye, Robin. You were such a big part of my childhood, whether it was as Mrs. Doubtfire or as Genie, and I grew up with you, in so many ways. Your roles in Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society will remain with me forever.
Thank you for bringing so much joy to us all, and leaving so many beautiful movies and performances to remember you by. We’ll miss you always.
Today it is time that dinosaur friend wants to travel and is looking for a new home! Perhaps they can live with you?

The random number chosen person will get

We will stop at 12pm lunch time UK time on 10th August and randomly find and contact who wins the same day probably. Any problems that last more than one day means we pick a new winner until a new home is found.
Perhaps important information is missing you would like to know? I am opening ask especially in case, but remember I am small and typing is hard so unless important may not answer many questions.
