First off I wanna say this...because I want permission from customers who have bought my large werewolf !
I have the desire to make more than 30 of these guys available for sale. BUT, I originally advertised only 30 would be made, making him very limited. I need to check the checklist again to be 100% sure, but I have sold at least 8 or 9 that have been numbered (and my personal piece which was not numbered). However, I just sold a pre-order one on etsy for $400 this morning, and only need one more sale to fund a PROFESSIONAL mold and some castings. I want to do this to free up my art time for sculpting and painting, not casting work. The castings will be made out of the same resin I use, and of the same if not better quality than the ones I have already sold. That being said, this mold I will be paying for is capable of producing 50 or more castings...so say over the years I exceed those 30 castings and can still have more made, and people want them. I originally based the 30 number on what MY mold I made can take. For those of you who have bought a werewolf from me being advertised as numbered at 30...would you mind if I sell more than 30 if there is ever the demand for more? Would you guys be okay with that or would you be upset? If this would upset even one person I will stick to my original plan of 30. Another reason I desire the option to sell more, is because with this new found help by hiring a professional foundry, I can most likely charge less for these werewolves so more people can enjoy them. Please let me know guys...I really want your blessing regarding this, but will stick to my original plan if someone would be offended by this possibility!
In other news...life's been especially rough lately. I was laid off work for an indefinite amount of time at the game studio I work at, and tomorrow my healthcare benefits are being canceled. Being Type 1 diabetic in a country that doesn't seem to care about everyone having good health, is a scary thing. The studio has hired me though (for now at least) for contract work doing pixel art animation cleanup work. It's tedious, but it's ART, so that part makes me happy. The money is also way better than game testing, BUT, I now will have to pay a chunk of cash for my healthcare to be floated for a limited time. There are some things I enjoy about being at home (the freedom), and some things I don't like (it's lonely)...emotionally it's been tough, I'm going through a time where no aspect of my life has any real stability, but I'm praying and God's giving me some comfort through it all, if not getting me around it.
I also received my new airbrushes...and they're AMAZING! If you haven't seen this yet, this is a werewolf I painted for someone on etsy using it! This is also linked to my other DA account if you want to follow me there. But on the subject of werewolves..if you are interested in buying one, please let me know. All I need is ONE more sale to get this mold/new castings made, so please leave a comment if you're contemplating buying one now or in the near future! Thanks for reading! Here's the wolfie! [link]
