WHAT IS THE WAITING LIST?
The waiting list lets me know that you are interested in a commission. When I open again, people on the waiting list will get an email first notifying them that I am going to be accepting new commissions soon. They then have the opportunity to grab a commission spot before I even advertise that I am open to everyone else.
This does NOT guarantee you a commission spot, it only gives you a short period of time before the normal commissions are open to secure your spot. In other words, the waiting list gets the opportunity to be first in the first-come-first-served spots.
TO GET ON THE WAITING LIST:
Use my commission inquiry form. Fill it out like you would for a normal commission and indicate in the "more info" section that you know it's for the waiting list. I will email you back informing you that you have been placed on the wait list. Then simply wait until I email again letting you know I have open commission spots!
This was really the start of using backgrounds; even if they are mostly solid black! I started with the sphere behind the dragon, and although I failed at maintaining perfect lines, I still liked the concept. Unfortunately there is no undo button with traditional media! After the dragon, I got on a minor horror kick with the terrifying Vashta Nerada from Doctor Who and a zombie horse! I'm just loving using pointillism to create spooky textures.
I'm starting to get into the swing of doing these, finally! I've grown much more confident with the styles I have been using, and even trying out new techniques that I hope to carry over into my larger works. One of the other big changes that I made was using a better camera to take photos of my doodles. I'll scan them all in at the end of the month, but for now they are fodder for my teenage-like obsession with the "Instragram filter"!

It's October already?! I for one am excited! I love October, not just for all the pretty spooky decor and finally decent weather, but also because it's Inktober month! I've been dying to do it every year, but much like the Witchsona Week, I always seem to miss it. Not this year though! This year I remembered right before the start of October! I'll update here with each week's Inktober doodles, but you can check them out as they happen on Twitter.
"But Melde, what's Inktober?", you might be asking. It's rather simple, actually. It's a drawing challenge that pushes artists to complete one ink drawing a day for the entirety of October. It can be as simple or as detailed as you want, as long as it's in ink! You can find more info, and an optional list of daily prompts on the creator's website.
