I really don’t like talking about personal issues but my financial situation right now is so crap that I’m going to post this. In my country, if you want to be self-employed, you’ve got to pay about 500PLN every month for the first two years - that’s on “discount” - and two years after registration it goes up to almost 1200PLN monthly, which is way more than I can afford. To give you perspective, minimum wage here is 1459PLN monthly this year, which is a bit more than 400USD. (And good luck making a living with that).
So. In October, my two years threshold is up. I’ll be closing my self-employment business before then, but I need to pay the obligatory monthly shit before I do that, and I have some of it overdue from July and August and after summing up all my savings (whooping 500PLN, yay), I’m still 800PLN short. That is almost 230USD.
(I also have full illustration commission info here)
The payment is via paypal only (unless you live in Poland, then it can also be a direct bank transfer).
Additional characters are, per 1 character: +6USD on portraits, +15USD on waist-up, +20USD on full-body.
Simple background (such as the starry sky behind the torso/waist-up dude) or the swirly things behind the orange one are +3USD on portraits, +6USD on waist-up, and +10USD on full-body.
Since those are painted/drawn on paper, I can also send them via mail. Details for that are discussed separately.
