Hayrunners - Helping Farmers in Drought - Update: Both Slots GONE! Thank you~

in hayrunners •  4 months ago


there are... ah, parts where i wasn't moving cuz i was distracted by people poking my face at discord, but most of the time i was drawing, sorry for the waiting parts, though~


Hi everyone !

Today is a bit of a break from the "Boys be Courageous !" series as I finally pulled my shit together and stop twiddling my thumbs. So, back in October, I made a commitment to @scooter77 to help out with the Hayrunners project, and then of course, Inktober bulldozed everything and my focus got shifted on meeting the challenge of drawing one inked drawing a day. Then November came and I was knackered and thought I should kick back for a bit, and now it is suddenly almost at the last legs of the month.... so, here I finally am! Posting about Hayrunners!

SORRY, FELLOW AUSTRALIANS ; __ ;

Anyway!

What is the Hayrunners project, you ask? Well, you can read all about it in this post, which explains it better than I can, but it is basically a charity drive to help out farmers who have been severely disadvantaged by the terrible drought in Australia.

Here is an excerpt:

Farmers impacted by drought often struggle to ask for help and many due to the financial strain of trying to keep the farm afloat also battle mental health issues. Drought doesn’t just impact farmers it also has impacts on the local businesses and schools within that community.

How you can help (me help the farmers) !!!

So, as part of being a spider in the spiderland (aka Australia), I am trying to do my bits to help out. So I'm offering commissions of digital art, like the one contained in this post. Here are the price structure:

  1. Headshot without video - 5 STEEMS
  2. Headshot with video - 10 STEEMS
  3. Torso without video - 10 STEEMS
  4. Torso with video - 20 STEEMS
  5. Full Body without video - 30 STEEMS

Remember that all proceeds will go directly to the charity, and not to a spider's pocket :) You'll be helping these farmers get through tough times.

I'm only offering TWO slots for now cuz I am a lazy slob.

I'll draw anything except for NSFW stuff. Also I'm not very good with animals / creatures stuff, unless you don't mind them wonky :D :D :D

So, in summary: the commissioned monies will go to charity, I get to keep the posts' earnings only.

How to order?

Easy, just reply to this post with your character's description and the type of commission you are wanting to order. If I think I can sort of not completely bungle the job, I would accept it. You can send the STEEMs directly to @TeamAustralia with a note of "HAYRUNNERS CHARITY". Once you've done that, I'll start drawing :D

Any questions, ask away :D If you think my prices are crazy, it's because I do not usually do commissions. EVER. I only draw for myself cuz I get super anxious with other people's babies and also have terrible coping mechanism with stress XD;;;;;;; But this is for a good cause, and I do want to help people in need with my meager abilities :)

Okay, I'll go and have dinner now :3 See you all tomorrow, lovely people o/

ORDER STATUS

  • Slot 1: Taken by @scrawly. I will attempt to draw a character from @scrawly's strange universe.
  • Slot 2: Taken by @bdmillergallery. I will attempt to draw Miss Molly :D :D :D

So, both slots are now gone \o/ I'll post the commissioned pieces soon~

Thank you, both @scrawly and @bdmillergallery !!! Amazing and generous <3

Lovely initiative, my friend. And a superb drawing!

·

Thank you, Juandre <3 Very kind of you <3

Even at the dip on steem price, you are still creating art. Nice one.

·

Well, I didn't make art for monetary gains in the first place!

·
·

Hear hear, I'm happy to share my art on here as Steem has the best artists and followers who care about what you do and encourage you to do more! :)

·

Thank you so much :D I appreciate it \o/

Great work!

·
·

Thank you, Sander :) So nice to see you back <3 <3 <3 Hope you are feeling better !

That's awesome, spidey! The climate change is insane and the workers of farms are always the ones that get most affected by it. I'm glad you came up with something to give back and help a little.

·

Yeah, I hope the climate will get better somehow or this will get worse and worse for farmers in the future :(

I read about Australia drought a few months ago, such a tragedy where many cows died due to the lack of food source and water, even some farmers need to shot their cows in order to make them die painlessly. You did really a good job, good luck with the project 😊

·

Thank you, @hananan :) You are such a kind-hearted person <3 <3 <3

Ooohh a rare commission! <3
Hmm hmm it's very inviting, I think I will dm you about stuff ^_^.        
                     
Nice video, spider, and the girl is very cute. I like her hair a lot.

·

Okei, DM me~ Send me top secrets~

XD XD XD

Thank you, scrawls <3

Could I just donate some SBD to you, for the cause, instead?

·

SO YOU ARE SAYING YOU DONT WANT MY ART!!!!

(yes of course, you can XD) (send it through to @teamaustralia directly, any amount would help, even .50 steems!!!)

THANK YOU <3

·
·

Ah man, now I deal foolish. Not what I meant. Lol. Maybe you could draw Molly? Hehe. I don’t mind donating for a good cause. Grew up working a farm so I know how tough a life it can be. If your collecting I can give to you and you can give it from you. It would mean more coming from you anyhow. :-)

·
·
·

Hahahaha no no, dont worry <3 I tend to be very silly most of the times and I dont get offended very easily <3 <3 <3

And no no, dont feel pressured <3 you are so nice and lovely <3 <3 <3

·
·

Lol. Yea I read about it. Dang! Lol

·
·
·
·

I made a transfer donation for your cause this morning. I made it to your account. I think it would be more appreciated coming from you. Best wishes with the donations! :-)

·
·
·
·
·

Not at all. It wasn’t much. But every little bit helps. Your welcome for sure.

Beautiful girl :-)))

·

thank you very much, @carolineschell !

Thank you for supporting the TA Charity. We really appreciate it. :)

·

You guys rock <3 I try to do my meager bits !!!

Two slots is NOT lazy, it's sensible and managable given all the other things a spider does XD

I still can't find my resteem button on Steempeak! O_o

·

i dont use steempeak so i can't help u, ryry !!! sorry~

yesh, i think two slots wont kill me!

i've been kinda burning out lately, maybe i've taken on too much . ___ .

·
·

No biggie, I was playing around and worked out it's just not displaying for some reason, I think NoScript is blocking it as it showed up on Brave. Just have to work out why now :)

Nuuuu burnout is bad don't be doing that D:

·
·
·

i've been making daily contents for steemit and at the beginning it was okay but now im a curator for four different communities and i'm kinda dying

XD;;;;;;;

·
·
·
·

Ahhh spodey were you not around/paying attention when I warn artists about posting daily? XD

FOUR curation gigs?! Insanospider! May I suggest making a posting schedule (maybe 2-3 days per week? or whatever you think you can manage) if you don't want to drop any of those XD

Do something before it gets much too much though, I like my spodies happy and not burnt out :D

aaah yeah, i might have to consider to drop something... :( i dont like letting people down but i do think it is important to keep creating contents for steemit specially when the moods are not so upbeat, but yeah, i curate for curie, c-squared, akibasteem and artisteem now and im like .... my brain is melting

XD;;;;;;;;;;

Every time I look at your beautiful and stunning drawings, I can not get rid of the feeling that the images of the girls on them very much remind me of the character of the game Nier: Automata. There was a android girl in the game with name 2B. Her character left a strong mark after the game in my heart. : )

·

hahaha i think you are the second person that said this to me, apparently i draw similar in proportions to that guy who designed for nier:automata :O it is a huge compliment to me and i thank you so much for such kindness * ____ *

Very cool idea doing the commissions. It takes a long time to feel comfortable with them. I hope soon I will become more at ease when it comes to doing commissions.

·

ya, i only do art for a hobby since my "real" job pays me well enough, so i'm always avoiding commissions ...

fuck i hate my 'real' job thoooooooo

but but but

money thougggggggh

I know what you mean. That is why I quit my job exactly 2 years ago. I couldn't take it anymore. I finally said... screw the pay and comfort.
