Hi everyone, it's been quite a long time since I last post anything. I have been MIA for almost 2 months due to having been sick for over a month and have been super busy at work. I decided to make this long post to interact with everyone :)!!!PART ONE: LET'S HAVE A DEBATE!
Today's topic: "Is Suicune's ribbons a TAIL?? or it is just flowing around its' body?"
First of all, I don't collect Suicune items nor have I pay much attention to this legendary beast before. However, when I was watching some Youtube videos on the Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, I saw this:Evidence #1:( Collapse )
After a while later, my friend found this Suicune custom plush on etsy made by SimpleChicGeek
:Evidence #2:( Collapse )
And my reaction was OMG...Suicune's ribbons does come out from its butt!!! I actually wanted to buy this plush cus it is quite cute (especially the ribbons) XD My friend decided to ask the seller to confirm why she/he decided to design the plush this way and to further confirm that the ribbons is in fact Suicune's tail:( Collapse )
After some time have passed, my friend showed me the final evidence that sealed the deal:Evidence #3:( Collapse )( Collapse )So, now I might ask you guys, what do you think (especially those that collect Suicune)?
I would love to see your comments on this. I hope I am not the only one that find this amusing ~.~
PART TWO: ARTISTS' OPINIONS
I recently finished a commission for a friend. She requested me to make a pokeball shaped house for small pets. All was going well and she loved the final product. However, after I told her the shipping cost for the item, she flipped out and also said a lot of things that made me feel insulted as an artist and angry for this whole situation.
*"This isn't what I wanted and what I asked for."
(Even though I showed her the sketches and told her my design many times before. I asked her many many times if she have any special requests for the design or changes she wants me to make. She told me many times, "I trust your decision.", "Up to you, I don't mind." Few days ago when I showed her the finished product, she approved of it by saying "I love it!")
*"I thought it was shipped. If I knew it was Y (item cost + shipping) then I won't have wanted it. I could buy 10 of these with the price."
(I told her before that I have no idea what the shipping cost will be since the item isn't made yet. But it is international shipping. She was the one that ASKED me to make it and said she will pay whatever it cost to make it and the cost to ship it back.)
*"I feel it is unfair you charged me so much for this. The fabrics and materials doesn't even cost that much."
(I quote the price to her and asked if she is ok with it. And she said she is fine with it. So I am not sure what happened.)( Collapse )
I want to ask all artists out there: "How to you deal with a situation like this?"
I would love to hear your opinions and your past experiences with customers.
Anyways, here's the item I made:( Collapse )The pet house is roughly 9" wide X 6" tall. The opening is 4" tall X 5" wide.
It has a very sturdy structure and covered with very soft orange and white cuddly fleece. The details are made with felt and the black lining continues on the inside of the dome. The bottom is made with two kind of cardboard and covered over with orange cuddly fleece on the inside and outside. If anyone is interested in purchasing this pet house for their small pets, it will be $40 before shipping and pp fees
. I am willing to make some adjustments and add-on(s) on it! Please let me know!PART THREE: MY SSS( Collapse )
