Married with Children / Commissions?

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 12, 2010, 7:13 PM
"Hey pal, i gotta wife an' two kids" (now i can finally say that line!)

It's worth every bit of effort, especially when they start running to you for hugs after you come home from work. So far only one is doing that while my other one is only 3 weeks as of tomorrow, but i have similar experiences with my nephews and niece down in Jersey.

I have taken 10 days off to help my wife, so right now i am in charge of cleaning, cooking (yes i can cook), and looking after our oldest, Maryam.  I will go back to work soon and have some new stuff to post shortly.

I never doubted my wife worked hard at home, and I didn't underestimate it either. We have no family close by so we have to do it ourselves which is nice in a way.

Possibly the hardest part of this whole thing is watching my little 21 month old Maryam getting over the fact she isn't #1 and only anymore, and has to share her mommy and 'dad-doon' with Zainab. She is getting better though and she gets the diapers for her mommy and disposes of the spent ones, and give Zainab a kiss goodnight as well.

Good signs, lets hope it keeps up!


Commissions

I might be opening for commissions of specific nature and i will have more details to come. I might cave into pressure and open a paypal account.

Ben Jonas of the US of A, yours is first in line though, so don't worry. I will be going to NJ some time in December so i might just mail them from there instead.


5th Capsule

On another note I am itching to do 5th capsule and have a whole bunch of maps i have never uploaded. If i did they would get all of 3 hits for sure, because who cares about maps right? I swear i should have been a cartographer.


I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.


Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

"she isn't #1 and only anymore"!?? SAYS WHO!? Nah, daughters never become #2. It's just that there gets to be more than one #1s, haha :nod:.

I wouldn't be able to commission you right now, but I've got a beautiful Yuki in my room to suffice. Also, why don't you do a Live stream like Rob and Chamba? Or even join them? That'd be kick ass.

You have some awesome work man, and you have ben of use to me. This type of work is time consuming, and the rewards can be great, but you did the right thing.

Always keep god and your family first.

Hope to see you back soon,
take care and god bless.

I love that show, lol

It's rare find a person that don't underestimate and really understand all that the wife(or husband, in some case) does.
You sure are a great example to all artists and non-artists with a family in the world.

the best for you and your family, always

Congratulations. Kids tend to be jealous, I know (I have six nieces and nephews, so I've seen my share), but as long as you pay attention to her, it won't be bad, I'm sure.

I... would love to ask for a commission, but right now I'm not in the best terms with money... I'll try to save something so I can ask ^^U

lol please don't hesitate to upload the maps! I really admire how much thought you put into the environments that your characters live in. It makes the fact that they're living in them that much more special.

Ah it was a picture of Cammy sitting on a Camero, commissioned at 2008 SDCC. I may try to get a high quality scan of it sometime (my scanner isn't up to the task, and doesn't work anyways)
