Meanwhile, my sub ran out and that's okay because I'm honestly on DA like 98% of the time as SenshiStock because omg messages. :faint: But I set up a Patreon for that and it's going well so yay getting paid to take photos of myself.

:boogie:

And commissions, and a book illustration contract, and that CUTE BABY that I have :heart: So lots going on and busy, busy, busy as they say.

I promise sometime soon I will draw something that isn't a chibi. After I finish all the chibi I have to draw. CHIBI.

My holiday free plush giveaway thing is still happening this year though! HURRAY! I will be opening sign ups for that soon. Stay tuned!

If you need to urgently reach me for something, I recommend twitter. Or email me. SarahRuthForde at gmail.com

My next con is AB in March. yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay~~~

:salute:
This is just a list for my own personal punishment.

Am I missing someone? Let me know!  :iconusagilaplz:

I don't want to draw each of the main characters in every outfit they ever wore, but I do want to do at least the different school uniforms for each. I might not do all the monsters, just the main baddies. I am not sure about side characters, except for ones that have important relationships with the main characters. Feel free to make suggestions!

I might not have linked all the ones that I've done yet, gotta go through the gallery sometime.

Sakky's 5th Annual Free Plush Giveaway! LAST CALL by sakkysa

This year there were 944 qualified entries! A bit less than last year, but I've been a little busy. ;D 

The GRAND PRIZE winner this year is: :iconnebula1984:! :party:

The first runner up prize goes to: mwuhuha 

Congrats to the winners!! :D Thank you all so much for entering! See you again next Christmas! :santa:
Being a mom is hard, lol. :faint:

AAC was great. Had an awesomefantastical time. Trying to get back into the groove of working at home but of course with crazy modified hours due to baby aaaaah~~~ :D It's great though, she's great.

I have to finish the AAC raffle plush and then I have the Free Giveaway Plush (if you haven't signed up yet, go go go:

Sakky's 5th Annual Free Plush Giveaway! LAST CALL by sakkysa

I am still hoping to open plush commissions around the end of the year, but fair warning - it's going to be pretty limited. ; ~ ; I know there's a lot of people waiting, but I don't want to book myself with 30 plush and feel behind for a year haha. >_> I will probably take 4 or 5 to start and see how it goes. As usual, it will be first come, first serve. Be sure to be on my notification list if you're interested!! Get all the info here: Sakky's Plush Adoptions - CLOSED

My chibi commissions are open right now, details here: Sakky's Drawing Commissions - CHIBI OPEN!
And small items (dango, hair bows, etc.) here: Sakky's Item Commissions - OPEN!

I am warming up for full body stuff. I haven't drawn in a while!! D:

Okay, baby needs me. :heart: Bye!!
UPDATE: All the messages should now be sent! Let me know if you didn't get a message or if you have any questions or need more references! :D Looking forward to seeing your art! Feel free to share it in the comments below when it's complete!

I have decided to be crazy and run a massive art trade ring for the end of the year! :happybounce:

This particular Secret Sailor is for Sailor Guardian OCs in their Guardian or "Sailor" form only. Male and collarless sailors are okay, too.

Everyone that signs up will get a message about the character and person for whom they are to make art. You must commit to making a full body, full color image for the person who's character you are assigned.  Digital or traditional art are both accepted. Doll makers can be used so long as you edit them sufficiently to match the character's design.

If you cannot commit to this type of art in the timeframe set, please do NOT sign up! Failure to complete your part of the trade causes unneeded complications. (Though I realize sometimes emergencies crop up! Please notify me at least a week in advance if you will miss the deadline!)

You do not need to have a DeviantART account to participate, but you will have to provide a link to your artwork.

The important dates are:
:bulletblack: Sign up by October 25th.
:bulletblack: Assignments will go out on or around November 1st.
:bulletblack: Art is due by the end of the year, December 31st.

If you have any questions, please let me know by leaving a comment, tweet, or email.

Q: Can I list more than one Sailor and let the artist choose which one?
A: Yes, so long as they all have full body, full color references.
Somehow, it got to be over 5,000 words long... but hey! There's pictures, too! ^____^

All My Sailor Moon Crystal Feels by Sakky

My store is OPEN! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖° CLICK HERE!



I am not doing ANY cons this summer so take this chance to pick up some of my art! :D

Today is the last day to use code SAILORMOON and get 15% off any order! HAPPY SAILOR MOON DAYS! :iconusagilaplz:


IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING!

Viz Media announced at ACen today they have licenses for the original Sailor Moon anime, all of it including movies and specials www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/…

AND they got Crystal, too. (the new series) www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/…

I AM SHOCKED AND ALMOST DEAD.

And here's the trailer for Sailor Moon Crystal:
I'm posting this here and sending it out to everyone that's on the notification list.

I have started thinking more seriously about the limited amount of time that I have between now and baby's arrival sometime on, before or after July 19.

I know this will be a big disappointment to some people. I know that some of you have waited literally years to get onto the list. I'm very sorry to disappoint you; letting people down is one thing I really, really dislike doing. ; ~ ;

However, I have booked myself for enough work to keep a non-pregnant, 100% capacity Sakky busy for the next 15 weeks. I know that as my pregnancy progresses there's a chance I will face some currently unforeseeable circumstances which might limit my ability and/or desire to work.

When I really started thinking about the amount of work I've already committed to between now and then, I began to slowly realize that opening plush commissions at this time would be irresponsible to myself, the baby, and my potential commissioners.

I am sorry that I moved ahead with quotes before making this decision, however I want you to know that when I reopen after my maternity leave, I will still be honoring those quotes.  At this time it's hard for me to say when that will be, but I suspect at the earliest it will be towards the end of the year. Please stay on the notification list if you would like to receive updates. To add yourself to the list, just fill out this form.

Thanks for your continued support! Your interest in my art has made the last year and a half one of the most rewarding times of my life as an artist. I hope I will have your continued support and patronage when I return to commissions again. :heart:
AB is over and it was FANFREAKINTASTIC :la:

Big, HUGE thanks to everyone who came by the table and came to my four (?!) panels!! It was a crazy busy weekend (with no caffeine ahhhh) and I had an excellent time.  Super huge thanks to Itsu-de-Mo and SleyTheDent for their irreplaceable help at the table. :heart: AB never ceases to amaze me. Looking forward to next con in June in Portland, ME! Last con before baby. :3

Meanwhile, store has been updated with all the con left overs so check it out. Lots of CUTE things still available! ^___^



Gotta get going on plushies again (next up is a giant ESM, then the AB plush and then one more). After those are done, I will be reopening. I still have some quotes to send out so if you're still waiting on that, hang tight. It's looking like it's going to be an April opening after all. Sorry for the delay!

I previously said there would be around 10 slots but it's looking more like 4 or 5 at this point. I am being contracted for some long term illustration work and I don't want to over burden myself in the last half of the pregnancy. Stay tuned to the email notifications for updates if you want to snag a plush slot!!
Driving up to Manchester, NH for the one day QCK at the high school there. :happybounce: Looking forward to seeing some local friends and selling you all my fabulous dango. :la:

Stop by my table Sakky's Plush N Stuff for a raffle ticket to win a some prizes! Also, check the con bag for a coupon for my shop! :D :D Weeeee~~!
Hi everyone. I'm posting this from my phone. Right now I'm having trouble accessing my account. I'm not sure why but I am only able to access my account on my phone with the wifi turned off. There seems to be some kind of trouble with my IP address. Anyway, it's really hard to use deviantART on the phone so there's going to be a delay in my reply to messages and notes. For those of you who are waiting for plush quotes I will get back to you as soon as I can. I really hope this can be sorted out quickly. :<

EDIT: Currently logged in through TOR which is better than nothing until I figure out why this is happening.

EDIT 2: So although I can access this account, I can't edit old submissions like art and my commissions lists, and I can't submit. Will catch up on everything when this is settled.

EDIT 3: After using a proxy to access the account for a few days I was finally able to log back in today (with no help from the Help Desk, I might add :<) Hopefully that's the end of THAT. :grump:
I am very close to finishing the list of plush adoptions that I opened in fall of 2012 when I was laid off from my full time job. First, I'd like to say thank you so much to everyone that commissioned me in the last year or so! It's been a dream to do art full time and it's been a really exciting and rewarding year focusing on commissions and conventions.

Though this coming year is going to be a bit of a slower pace for me once Baby Forde arrives, I will still be opening a limited number of plush adoptions in the upcoming months to fill my time between now and July.  Starting with arrival of baby, I will be on maternity leave from most art, likely for a few weeks but possibly a few months (I haven't done this before, so I have no idea what it will be like! ^__^).  

Those who are on the Notification List have heard from me about plush quotes. I do the quote process in advance of opening so that you know what kind of financial commitment your plush will be. You can get quotes on more than one plush during this process. If you didn't get on the notification list before the quote email went out, just join the notification list now and send me a note so I can give you a quote before I open.

There are likely to be only 10-15 openings in this round and will be filled first come, first serve via an online form. Depending on the level of interest, the slots may fill very quickly. People on the notification list will be receiving advanced information about the date and time of the form opening. I may reserve a few slots to fill at Anime Boston.

For 2014, the base price for plush are:
:bulletblack: Small Plush (7-8") start at $95
:bulletblack: Large Plush (16-18") start at $175

These are base prices which do not include character specific details like hair style and clothing. Every character will be a difference price and even the same character could have a range of price options based on the details we choose to put in. When you get a quote, there will be a detailed breakdown for each segment of the character. I work with craft velour or dollskin bodies and felt for the outfit and hair. If you choose to have upgraded fabric options, there will be an additional cost for the materials.

Additionally, I am increasing my non-refundable deposit amount from $20 to $40. This is the deposit that you make when your plush moves from the Ordered Wait List to the On Deck list and it is applied to the balance that you owe. (For example: if your plush costs $150 in total, you would make a $40 deposit to move to On Deck. When it's time to start your plush, you would owe a balance of $110.)

You can get additional information about plush adoptions from my Sakky's Plush Adoptions Page.

If you have any questions about plush adoptions or the process, please let me know in the comments! Thank you all once again so very much for allowing me to make art for you. It's been a great pleasure and I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunities I've had in the last year. :heart:
Anime Boston just announced that VAs Linda Ballantyne (one of the English Sailor Moon actresses) and Toby Proctor (Tuxedo Mask) will be at AB 2014. They also will have director John Stocker.

:iconusagilaplz:

Official announcement here.

I'm so proud of you AB. You really did it! :D I hope the panels get approved and we can have a REALLY MOONIE 2014!! :D
SLOTS ARE ALL FILLED. Thanks! :D Will reopen when I catch up for all general drawing commissions.

These are colored pencil drawings and prices include shipping of the original art to all locations in the US and Canada.
Other international destinations will be an additional $8 for shipping for full drawings and $5 for chibi.
