In fact, about the only thing I actually need to do is respond to one of these emails with what I want for my second commission. Of the five I sent out yesterday night, three have responded, but I like the other two more. One of the artists already told me they expect to have my picture done closer to the end of the month, but as for the other, I like to imagine them scrambling to finish the shading proof they said they'd have for me within the time limit I requested last month. That was by the end of July, and here we are with nothing, but yeah. All of these people. And this person in particular is the one who first told me that I could feel free to give them a tip at the end, but I've mentioned all there is to be said about that before. As for the three who did respond, one was about my tail, and was already mentioned yesterday (it'll be going out / I should get a picture of it on Wednesday), another essentially repeated what I said about the background, and the third, which involves the cover for my story, was to the effect of coloring and leaving out certain details that neither of us have decided on quite yet, and as for the story itself, at last notice it was up to ~2,000 words in length. Oh, and then there's that new person now that I'll be getting those icons from eventually, but unless I hear otherwise from them, I'll assume I'm waiting to see the sketches first.
I think I'm off to go start getting ready for work a little early though. I don't plan to leave before 4, but among other things, season 1 of the original Dr. Who series is done downloading, so I want to back it up. At the moment I have just enough space on my 1TB external drive to hold all of them, but even with that in mind, it's taken about a week (minus a day) to download the first season, and when there are 26 seasons in the original series torrent alone? That's almost half a year worth of downloading, but to think about it in another light, I've been waiting on certain commissions for just about that long as well. I'll have to let him (George) know about the downloading today though, but that won't happen until 5. I have other things to do first~
