So I officially know when and how much my surgery is going to cost me. My surgery is scheduled for July 23, and I have to pay $1,000 out of pocket to cover what insurance won't. $700 up front and the rest in monthly payments. I have been able to pay bills by doing odd jobs and selling my stuff, but a $1,000 is a lot of money. I can't get a job until after my surgery, talk about a catch 22.
So far I have raised $12 by selling things on ebay. Yeah, I haven't been doing so well on that front. I understand that money is tight for everyone, and I myself have often been frustrated when I couldn't help someone else because of my own money woes. I am going to be changing up my commissions to see if I can get any bites.
I will be clear, I will get the surgery no matter what. Even if I have to borrow from my family I will come up with the money. So even if I don't sell a single commission I will still be getting the surgery. Every commission is extremely helpful though. I don't want to have to borrow more then I absolutely have to.
I was thinking about offering the shrinky dinks I've been working on. They all have a small hole punched in them so you can put them on anything you want. I have absolutely no idea how much to charge, or how much shipping would cost. If anyone knows anything about that lend me your expertise.

I am only offering bust drawings, but they can be either sketch or colored. Colored will be inked, and cell shaded. I try to work the characters personality into my pictures, and you can request a specific emotion if you would like.
I will draw:
Original characters, fanart, fan characters, girls, guys, any age, blood, nudity
I won't draw:
Animals, anthro (though cat/dog ears, and some exceptions can be made for mostly humanoid characters) anything not allowed on DA.
Additional questions and advice is more then welcome.
