Weaver, Chime, etc for Trade

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 29, 2015, 4:09 PM
I still love my babies, but I have a light brown toy weaver now so Nhia feels sort of redundant. The others don't get much love and I always need more sparkledoes in my life.

Weaver:
Nhia01 by celesse
She's a MYO design by me and comes with a few pieces of art. Her Toyhouse page is here.

Lucky chime:
Lucky Chime - Starsong by celesse
MYO design by me. Comes with this and a pixel icon.

Jolle Raptor:
Jr S Eeh 1 6 By Simonetry-d8758dn by celesse
No extra art.

Other:
4 By Homuah-d814fdw by celesse
Design by Homuah, no extra art.


:star: I'm also willing to add art to any trade to pad the offer if necessary. Willing to negotiate on the type of art and how much.


I'm mainly interested in minkin, but I'd also look at:
- Weavers
- Mantafae (high priority)
- Scarfox by Kawiku (I need one of these omg)
- Possibly flower critters
- Possibly fishthings
- Possibly lantern dragons
- Possibly fumis
- Stuff from my wishlist folder (but it's mostly minkin) - celesse.deviantart.com/favouri…

Or babs, as unlikely as that is.

You can comment here or note me, either is fine.


Minkin for Minkin (TRADED)

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 25, 2015, 2:46 PM
Crackle has been traded, thank you to everybody for your interest <3


It makes me sad to do this, but Crackle is the hardest for me to connect to. I still love her design to pieces, but I think at this point I would rather have another design/character I can have a closer emotional bond with.

I am only looking for other minkin.

I'll look at any kind, there are no restrictions. I will note that Crackle has a rare trait (tail) so I would prefer to get a rare trait in return, but it's not required if I really love the design. Otherwise you might have to sweeten the pot somehow.

She comes with several pieces of artwork and can be returned to her original tail design if desired.

Minkin - Crackle (Deceased) by celesse New Years Minkin [Closed] by SA1B0T
toyhou.se/34137.crackle

I am going to be so picky. If I don't find a design I am absolutely head over heels for I will be keeping her.

Please also give me some time to respond to any offers, I want to carefully consider each before accepting or declining.

You can comment here or note me if you prefer, either is fine.

(PS I really want this minkin so if there's any way you can get him I would trade Crackle for him)



Vacation Mode

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 16, 2015, 6:36 PM
Going out of town for a week starting tomorrow, so I probably won't be around too much until after the 24th. I'll finish any commissions/owed art as soon as I get back! :heart:


Help the little shrimp!

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 3, 2015, 9:37 PM
My friend landlotl is auctioning an adopt to help a poor little shrimp. I feel a lot of sympathy for the itty bitty baby so time for a signal boost!

Mint Chip - SAVE THE SHRIMP! (CLOSED) by landlotl

I redesigned one of her older landlotls for the shrimpy, please check it out! ;O;


Help getting UK MLP toy

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 11, 2015, 9:14 PM
Update: I got her off eBay (finally)! Thanks for all your help ^O^

Getting desperate here. There's a My Little Pony toy that's being sold in the UK and possibly Australia too that I really want and I don't think it's ever coming to the US.

I can't find it for purchase online except an Amazon listing with an inflated price and an ambiguous Toys R Us.uk listing that may or may not give me the right one. It's not even on eBay!

Is there anyone in the UK (or Australia?) that would be willing to visit a few Toys R Us stores to try to find the toy for me? Then ship it to me?

I'll of course pay for the toy and shipping, or if you'd rather have some kind of art I can do that too. She shouldn't cost more than £14.99 or thereabouts.

I'm looking for Fashion Style Daisy Dreams:

Help? Anybody? ;^;



Adopts Wishlist

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 29, 2015, 7:31 PM
Reposting this because the last one is a mess now ^^;

Throwing this out there in case anyone is interested in trading for what I can offer.

Offering:
:bulletgreen: Adopts currently available for trade - N/A
:bulletgreen: Money
:bulletgreen: Design services (I can design your MYO for you)
:bulletgreen: Art. Illustrations, pixel icons, animations, etc.

Or if there's something else I can do for you I'm open to hearing ideas.


Always looking for these:

:bulletgreen: Minkin

Also interested in:

:bulletgreen: Weavers
:bulletgreen: Diplings
:bulletgreen: Mantibabs
:bulletgreen: Flower critters

Possibly intersted in but will be really picky:

:bulletgreen: Sushi dogs/cats
:bulletgreen: Waterdogs
:bulletgreen: Jolle Raptors

---

:bulletgreen: I would consider MYO slots for any of these as well.

:bulletgreen: Specific design wishlist - celesse.deviantart.com/favouri…



:bulletred: Not really open to anything else. Will probably hide comments after we're done to keep things clean.

:bulletred: Not interested in one-off designs, would prefer established species. No humanoids please.

Just FYI I don't want standard animals with unusual markings or extra features, like a cat with unnatural colors or a wolf with wings. No gijinkas or kemonomimis either. I can do that on my own. I'm looking for the original species listed above.


Seeking Minkin! Offering money + art

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 22, 2014, 8:40 PM
What the hell, this worked once so I'm trying again. I really need more sparkle babies in my life.

Looking for minkin! Official or MYOs are fine, I'll look at any you got. There are a few on my wishlist here that I would be pleased as punch to get, but aren't required.

I can offer money (yes, even if you paid a lot in auction) and/or art (see below.)

Edit: I can also buy a design to trade for your minkin! So if you see an adopt go up for sale/auction, you can let me know and I will try to get it for you so we can trade.

For the art I can do a lot of different styles including:

-Spot illos
-Illustrations with multiple characters and/or backgrounds
-Pixel art/icons
-MYO designs (for MYO slots you own)

So we can negotiate on what and how much depending on the value of the design.

Examples (these aren't charas for trade, they're examples of the art!):

Weaver - Nhia by celesse Reluctant - Unwanted Apprentice by celesse Reluctant - Potion Tester by celesse Neapolitan Sushi Dogs by celesse Little Pixel Minkin by celesse Bounce Bounce Shakka Shakka by celesse Weaver Ref - Rajiv by celesse Lucky Chime - Starsong by celesse

Only looking for minkin right now! Please don't offer anything else unless you have something specifically on my wishlist to bribe me with.

You can comment here or note me if you'd rather speak in private <3


Toyhouse

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 13, 2014, 6:36 PM
I keep forgetting to mention I have a Toyhouse account now (thanks YuriStorm!!)

toyhou.se/Celesse/

I've tried hard to find any existing Toyhouse accounts for the artists of some of my characters' art, but if you're on there and I don't have you credited just let me know!

PS I have no invite codes at all, sorry. I'm just a lowly peon account.


Stars Upon Thars

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 2, 2013, 7:19 PM
Not gonna lie, I'm pretty stoked about that new little star next to my name.


Notes and Formspring

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 10, 2013, 3:21 PM
Um, this is a bit awkward, but I kind of had a little break down last night and deleted all of the notes in my inbox. A lot of them were unanswered.

I've been insanely busy lately and really stressed out, and 15+ pages of unanswered notes continuously building up just kind of overwhelmed me. The only thing I could think to do was make it go away.

I just want to apologize to anyone that was waiting on a response from me. If you would still like an answer, please send the note again, but please keep these things in mind:

- I am not available for commissions. I won't give prices for the future either.

- I do not take requests

- I cannot take on new projects now, such as illustrating your comic or designing logos

- I do not have time to answer interview questions for your school project (I'm sorry!)

- Please don't ask me how I get products made. Use Google. Research. That's what I do.

- Merchandise/store/order questions should be made through the website

- You may cosplay any of my characters (including Strays or GaMERCaT)

- You may draw fan art of them as well (and link me to them!)

- You may get tattoos of my art (this one still surprises me!)

I think that covers most of the questions I get via notes. If you still need an answer for something go ahead and send me a new note.

Also, in order to funnel the silly/curious but ultimately trivial questions I get away from my notes, I went and revived my old unused Formspring account.


Please feel free to ask me anything nonessential there, including stuff about my webcomics or original characters, and I'll get to it when I have free time. That should cut down on the stress of too many notes :)

Wow, look at all the birthday wishes!! Thank you so much, everybody! ^o^ It was really fun going through all of the posts and seeing the creative ways you guys can convey the message.

There are a few too many for me to go through and personally say thank you to all of them, so I'm doing one big THANK YOU ILU SO MUCH post!! <3 <3 <3

And a big thank you to those of you that sent points or llamas, too!! <3 <3


Animazement 2013

Journal Entry: Wed May 22, 2013, 3:32 PM
I'm going to be at Animazement this weekend! We've got a booth in the dealer's room facing the food court (booth #P12), so be sure to look for us if you're attending :)

Animazement, Raleigh NC - http/www.animazement.com/

I'm going to have all of my Sugar Bunny Shop merchandise, including the GaMERCaT stuff and a few new items, so don't miss out!


GaMERCat, Strays on Tapastic

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 25, 2013, 2:52 PM
GaMERCaT and Strays are now being published on Tapastic!

We earn monetary bonuses for total page views for the month, so if you want to help us out please consider viewing them there occasionally. It's totally free! Plus there are other awesome comics there.






Strays, GaMERCaT Back Up

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 26, 2013, 2:17 AM
Good news, Strays and GaMERCaT are back up! If they still aren't working for you, please clear your cache and try again.

If that doesn't work, please give it a day or two. It may take a while for the changes to propagate across the internet.


Original Post 1/26/13---

Just FYI, the Strays and GaMERCaT websites are down at the moment. Our host disabled them because they were using too much CPU and destabilizing the shared server. The downside of using Wordpress to automate everything, I suppose.

I'm working on getting back my access to them so I can try to reduce the usage, but customer support is being really slow to respond. The sites will hopefully be back up and running very soon.

In the mean time you can view this week's Strays update over at the Facebook page - www.facebook.com/straysonline


Doobeedoo

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 25, 2012, 4:37 PM
Am I the only one that actually likes the new thumbnails? ^^; I used to miss a lot of great art because the thumbnail didn't appear interesting, but with the larger thumbs I can see the content a lot easier. I also love that it crops exceptionally tall/wide images to fit into a decent thumbnail instead of a 1 pixel tall/wide one.

And the alignment system is great. People keep saying it looks cluttered, but I think it's a clean look that uses the space more efficiently. The only issue I have is the lighter border/background that appears on odd sized images or transparent gifs/pngs. I think a better solution could be found for that, but I can't offer a suggestion at the moment.

I think people just need a chance to adjust to it. They sure do hate change.

Also I missed my dA anniversary again, dang it! I always think it's in April for some reason. I can't believe I've been on this site for 10 years! Wow!


Chicago Comic Con 2012

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 6, 2012, 3:28 PM
Once again we're off traveling! This time we're heading to Chicago Comic Con in Rosemont IL! We'll have a booth in the dealer's room and will have all of my Sugar Bunny Shop goodies, as well as some pony fan art and algy's stuff. Not to mention some hand-carved wizard wands by her father! They're really cool!

Be sure to stop by and see us if you're attending :)


Otakon 2012

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 23, 2012, 12:57 PM
Hey guys, sorry I haven't been very actively lately, especially with notes. I'm in overdrive preparing for Otakon this coming weekend, and then Chicago Comic Con 2 weeks after. It's madness, I tell you, madness!

I'll be in the Artist Alley for Otakon, and the Dealer's Room for Comic Con. See below for a map of my location at Otakon.

:pointl: Click me!

I'll have nearly everything from Sugar Bunny Shop and a meager offering of some GaMERCaT items, plus algy will be right next to me with her art and Strays between us!

Otakon is in Baltimore, MD and Chicago Comic Con is in Rosemont, IL. If you plan to attend either, drop by and see us!


Short Story From Long Ago

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 1, 2012, 2:39 AM
Looking for a little help, here. My Mom is asking about a short story she read when she was a kid and I'm not having much luck finding it on my own. If anybody recognizes it or is able to somehow find it that would be really awesome.

She believes it was published in either Creepy or Erie Magazine. She doesn't remember the name or author, but here is the gist of the story:

There were these two beings on a distant world. There was also a big white bird.  One was a man, one a statue. The man always said that he would leave one day on that big white bird.  One night, while the man slept, the bird flew away. He ran to where the bird was, and the statue told him that in the night, the bird, Hope, flew away. The ending is, there is a world very far away, and on it there are two beings. Neither has moved for many centuries. One stands because he is made of stone - the other kneels because he is not.


Can anybody help?
