Cartoon Update!

Thank you soooooooo very much for your kind words on my fancy photos. You are all so wonderful and I really appreciate you. Not only do I have awesome friends and family lifting me up, but I have you guys too!
One of the first attempts. A cartoon Bacon!
The cartoon creations has been a lot of fun, but also a little trying. Adobe Illustrator and I have had some talks with some words, so Adobe Photoshop (my main homie) came in and we are doing this thing together instead. It may take me a little longer, but I think the outcome is a little better. I am trying to get these finished as fast as I possibly can, which is usually about one a day. Sad, I know, but I do what I can.
I bet you guys can recognize this handsome fellow...
I will also have to ask for payment ahead of the service provided (via paypal). I promise I will do my best to excel at your cartoon and to get it done as soon as I can, but I cannot have payments lingering in the distance after I have spent my time and hand strength to provide this art piece. Especially since I have learned that despite all of our efforts, the hospital has declined our financial aid assistance from my surgery and we know owe them $13,000. I know it is doable to pay off, but it hurts to see a lot of the dreams you were desperately trying to hang on to fluttering out the door. So far most everyone has paid right away, and I really REALLY appreciate that. So thank you!
You know you wish you had a donkey and a sword.
The file you will recieve will also be different than previously posted. I have it formatted so that you will receive a jpeg that will print nicely as an 8x10 at 300dpi. If you are wanting a different size, all you have to do is let me know and I can change it to whatever you would like! There is no extra charge for this either, of course.
And Olivia's beautiful pony, Addy! Complete with dirt.
Those of you who have already been put on my list for cartoons will not be charged ahead of time, but any new requests will have to follow the new rules. As much as I hate to do that, it is necessary. If anyone is looking for an acrylic painting or pencil drawing, I can do those too (at a slow pace). Just ask (you can email me at alyssalapuh@gmail.com). I cannot promise any of these more technical pieces before Christmas of course, but I will do what I can. Thank you all so very much!
Acrylic painting!
I forgot, I can do colored pencils too!

  3. I LOVE YOUR STUFF! The ones you did for my barn buddies are printable at 8x10, yes? I still haven't bought frames or nice paper for them, yet! I am definitely going to save some pennies to have you do Dino. :)

  5. Oooh, acrylic paintings are much more my style than the cartoons. I'll shoot you an email about getting one :) Also, of course you should charge in advance, that's just good business practice.

  10. I would really like a painting or drawing. I'm poor so I couldn't pay everything up front but I could do installments of payment :)
