Yes, Pythagrious, that is exactly what you should be using that tissue for. It’s not as though Viren’s nose is bleeding or anything like that.
I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed).
Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.
But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.
I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.
And, that really scares me.
As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.
So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.art, or Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.
Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.
Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.
I’ll share this before I close the blog because it makes me sad.
Family bonding moment!… Yeah!
Art trade with Bee, of her characters Mia and Victor! Mia won’t win this match, Victor changed her diapers and read her Christmas lists- he’s got all the dirt on her. It is a fruitless endeavor!
GISH GOSH GOLLY! Ken and I are doing an art trade and they requested some Viren and Kenny lovey dovey times. After all Viren and Kenny lovey dovey times is JUST SO GOSH DARN PRECIOUS! YES!
I feel like I caked on an extra level of dorkiness though ahhhhh.
WEH my heart ;w; I loveeee this! AAA You got the dynamic perdy darn spot on! Gonna grab that umbrella, shenanigans are going to occur, that is the face of a shenaniganizer! (default face, basically.) I dig that pose! ;w; it forming a heart is freakin’ fantastic AAA so many hearts wehhh ♥ Thank you Bee! this is freakin’ fantastic!
Just felt like experimenting with something, and felt like drawing a Smoothie!
Kenny will never be able to wear that shirt again 8c
Cross post from my instagram! These were drawn a while ago, but I forgot about them… heh. Drawn while watching Sailor Moon Crystal and then watching the first episode of 90’s Sailor Moon. Gotta say… prefer that one more.
Sailor Mercury is my fav 8D; But that’s cuz I’m a predictable dope.
I’m lame, have I mentioned I’m lame? Well hopefully after this post I won’t need to clarify.
ANYWHOSERS… Poke-outfit things? And then a parody shot from the first movie. (Modified the pose a bit from the original because Mewtwo was doing some sort of Escher girls thing.)
Though the movie would be ENTIRELY DIFFERENT and would be about a bunch of kids who trespass on a secluded island during a storm and then accuse the owner of plotting the end of the world. Pretty much going: “Where are you… What- I… Where are your parents- go home, there is a hurricane outside.” “THAT YOU CAUSED TO WIPE OUT THE HUMAN RACE.”
More shapeshifting shenanigans, cuz that’s just what Kenny does. They don’t turn giant all that often, too much space- but when they do… CHAOS ENSUES.
