No longer Active on DA follow on twitter + tumblrHey guys!
I realized the other day that I've been ignoring this account, and it's basically because I'm no longer active on the site!
If you want to follow my updates, you can do so via my twitter account: http://twitter.com/beavs
or my tumblr account: http://alexneonakis.tumblr.com
and on my facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alexandria-Neonakis/21714394010?fref=ts
sorry for the inconvenience, I loved DA while I was on here, but have since found it a bit more difficult to maintain so many social media sites.
Places funding COMPLETE!I can't believe it's been 60 days since I started my Places crowdfunding on rockethub!
But it is done!
I had set my goal at $2,500 and managed to raise an incredible $3,200 thanks to all my awesome friends and followers
I can't say thank you enough to everyone who's supported me.
I have a few more doodles left to complete. they finally gave me an email list though, so I'll be able to email people who I'm not sure about yet for doodles.
Here's the doodle list!
Here's the progress list:
Dan Catchpole: Hellboy with kitten and pancakes Pat Munro: Him as a Superhero with lightning power Matin Coulombe: Marty Mcfly on a Hoverboard Justin Ford: Gregor Mendel Kate Welch: Lady Rocketeer Chris Wright: Tattoo Design (In progress) Rhia Charko: Martha Stewart Creeper Ryan Rinehart-Taylor: Girlfriend Vivienne Chan: Dolphin Kristal Plain:
Places Reward Doodles: Need to find some peopleOkay, so there's been some hiatus and snags, but I'm getting closer to finishing. There are a few people in this list who i can't seem to locate. If it's you, make sure you message me please! Rockethub is an incredible site, but its in beta, and as of now, doesn't seem to give me a way to email the fuelers!
These are the people I'm trying to find:
John Reyes, Haylee Senita and Jeff Dorman
There are still 8 days left to contribute if you want a doodle: http://www.rockethub.com/projects/2239-places
Here's the progress list:
Dan Catchpole: Hellboy with kitten and pancakes Pat Munro: Him as a Superhero with lightning power Matin Coulombe: Marty Mcfly on a Hoverboard Justin Ford: Gregor Mendel Kate Welch: Lady Rocketeer Chris Wright: Tattoo Design (In progress) Rhia Charko: Martha Stewart Creeper Ryan Rinehart-Taylor: Girlfriend Vivienne Cha
Hi-EI just wanted to do a quick journal thanks to a user here on DA who has been following and faving my work for a while:
:iconHi-e: always shows support for my work and has been doing so for quite some time. Thanks so much! I don't always get a chance to personally thank everyone who supports me but I want you all to know that I do notice, I do read them all and they all mean a lot to me.
So thank you thank you thank you!
Rocket Hub UpdateHey all!
Just wanted to thank everyone who's contributed to my project so far again. I really appreciate it, and I'm so close to my final goal!
Also, I have a friend coming to stay with me for the weekend starting tomorrow, so there'll be a lull in doodles till Monday.
So those of you who are waiting, I thank you so much for your patience!
I didn't realize I'd get so much interest!
So many doodles!
Places Reward Doodles: Progress!Hey all, so I'm going to keep this journal updated to show where the progress is on the doodles, and if you have me here on DA, you can see where you stand in the list.
The list is in order of contribution, Dan Catchpole being the first to contribute to the project! <3
Some people got skipped because I hadn't heard from them on what they wanted yet. Question marks mean I still haven't heard from them for what they want.
I love all of these people, and these doodles are so fun! You guys all have the best ideas for doodles hahaha
Again, if you want to get a doodle, you can check out the project here: http://www.rockethub.com/projects/2239-places I'm at a whopping 73% of my goal! If you do contribute please either email me, note me here on deviantart, or post in comments what you want for your doodle! You can also add me on facebook:alexandria neonakis. Actually, I invite everyone to add me on facebook, I love facebook friends!
Dan Catchpole: Hellboy with kitten and pancakes
Help Fund my project! Get doodles for cheap!Hey all! So you know that project I've been picking at for months now? The Hali to Cali one? Well it's sort of evolved. I'm planning on doing a whole book out of it, but I need funding in order to keep living!
So I decided to set the project up on rockethub.com.
Rockethub is basically a crowd funding site like kickstarter (but Canadians are welcome to join too)
Basically, if you pledge a bit of money to my project, I give you stuff! There are various reward levels (they're all listed on the site) but the first level is 5$ for a personalized doodle! 5$ is pretty cheap for a drawing, it can be whatever you want... a character you have, a wow character, whatever... just be warned that it's going to be SIMPLE so... it's not going to show all of your top tier gear perfectly rendered in beautiful realistic detail. It'll be a simple doodle! but it'll be fun, and you'll also get my love forever.
There are other levels too for people willing to pledge a bit higher.
Please please go check it out

ALL Next Gen Fun Facts!This is fan made!
All Next Gen Fun Facts! :iconwoootplz: Everything from my previous fun facts journals as well as some new ones are in here I probably won't make any more new Fun Facts journals. Instead, I'll just add them in here and let you know if there are any updates (if they are worth mentioning of course) I'll probably add more to the younger characters later since I'm still developing them. HOLY FRICK THIS JOURNAL IS LONG!
If this journal in particular is too long, you can look at these kinda shorter ones that narrow the characters down by category

30 Day Art Improvement (Hell) ChallengeI originally posted this on my Tumblr blog, and since it seems to be popular I thought I'd challenge people here.

Tag your posts with #Improvement Hell (more for Tumblr posts, but I suppose you can do it here too) so everyone can follow along and see each other's awesome artwork.
What are you waiting for? START!

Pony Price ListGeneral Commission Info Hat Pricing FAQ
All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind. I start from my base pony price and add charges according to how difficult the character is to make.
