Hello Locket here. My apologies with my inactivity on DeviantArt first off. I will get to these notes and e-mails slowly but surely today/tomorrow (cause it's late).
I've decided with people currently in my queue that I'm working on to give some the option of "upgrades" here and there. I'll be sure to contact them their options as I begin to work on their specific parts.
By upgrades I just mean adding things one way or another. Some people are going to get the option of a custom cast head base, some resin or silicone noses, some resin eyes, some fleece/silicone pawpads, handpaws, a tail. But most likely just one upgrade to be fair. I was given parts from people who make these pieces and seeing as I have no use for them I could add them to those that did want them but couldn't afford them in the quotes I gave. So please keep that in mind the parts minus the option to make a custom base, fleece pawpads, and get resin eyes *are* outsourced. Until about October/November I will not have my own molds to make jawsets, noses, pawpads, feetpads, claws.
Are We are Now Tricycle?
Okay so it's currently just Renge an I with Renge doing Fluffs and premade typically and I with online commissions (both of us doing collab work) but I'm helping someone who for now goes by the name NWT who may be joining us. They showed a big interest in this and as long as they're willing to back it up by actually wanting to learn and work we're cool with them joining. I'll be teaching them mostly because between Renge an I, I'm closer; it's just not going to be simple balancing teaching them and working on due things. But that's my problem, i'm just happy to have a positive distraction from other things. Sometime next week or the week after expect to see some of NWT's test work, they're going to be sticking to premade things at low/material cost price to start out. Simple start things like tails and legs.
