Now that I am back up and at it, I am pleased to announce that I am re-opening commissions! My prices have changed for two reasons. First, because I feel like I have improved quite a bit and second, because I am charging what I think my TIME is worth as much as I think my art is worth. It’s a little of both. I will be opening three slots at a time, then finish those three before opening them up again. This will make sure that I won’t take on too many at any one time, a bad habit I got into previously. All my commission information (including commission status and availability) will be here:bloodgoldwings.deviantart.com/…

Yes, for those of you wondering, this means that the comic is back on! However, at the moment I am not going to promise a specific update schedule, mostly because I’m currently working and am going to be going back to school on the 25th. I’m going to AIM for once a week, but I make no promises as both work and school come first.
There is another question I have for you, dear followers! For those of you that did not know, I have a Tumblr! jaestring.tumblr.com/
Up till this point I have treated my Tumblr as though it were a redheaded stepchild, only uploading to it only sporadically. Mostly I use it to share things I find that I think are AWESOME. But I would like to start incorporating it more art-wise, as well as perhaps a facebook page to help send out updates whenever I update. Heck, I even have a Twitter that I’ve abandoned! However, for now I want to focus mostly on bringing my Tumblr up to speed. And I would like there to be something special for my Tumblr followers that those who watch me exclusively on deviantart won’t get to see. The question is “what.” Should I upload sketches of future projects so it’s more like a “sneak preview” tumblr? Should I upload unfinished sketches and practice art that will likely never make it to deviantart due to their unfinished nature? Perhaps I could do an ask sketch thing, but I don’t know if I could keep up if that ever took off. In any case, I would like to hear your suggestions!
Lastly, but not leastly, I would like to say thank you to all of you. Thank you for the support and the kind words during my difficult times. Thank you for the encouragement. And to all of my new followers, Thank you! I try to thank all of you individually, but I know I’ve missed a few.
