Back in Town and Chai Goes Home

Wed Jan 15, 2014, 8:14 AM
I returned on the 2nd but I had a boatload of work piled up when I got back. I finally waded through and gave myself a couple of days off to just kind of sit back and take in what's happened since my return from my stay on the moon.

First order of "business" was the gentle passing of my old dog, Chai. She had been in diapers for the last, well, year and I had been postponing the inevitable by not setting her free. She was completely blind, almost completely deaf, had pretty bad doggy-dementia, could not control her bowels or bladder, and was not even able to stand up for very long without slipping and falling. I had been thinking about letting her go for a while but I just... well I didn't want to do it. Despite her constant awful smell, the fact that she NEVER wanted to cuddle anymore, and the complete non-existence of any kind of quality of life I felt like I could just keep putting diapers on her and getting her out from beneath chairs (she got "stuck" under them) for the next two or three years until she finally did not wake up one day.  
When I took her to the vet and told her what I'd hoped for, she told me that they hardly ever just go to sleep and don't wake up. She reassured me that what I was doing was the right thing. My good friend Kenya was with me along with both my mom and my dad. I also took three Xanax before I went over there because I knew that if I wasn't completely sloshed I wasn't going to be able to let them take her from me. That's how it felt... like someone was wresting her from my motherly grasp. But, when it all came down to brass tacks and her quality of life was called into question, we all decided that she had none whatsoever. So I permitted the doctor to sedate her and then to let her pass on. I hovered over her the entire time, my hand on her head and then on her chest as they gave her the overdose of anesthesia that is used to humanely let them pass into the Aether. I felt her final breath very slowly leave her body. Then the doctor listened as her heart slowed to a stop. She took off her stethoscope and said "She's gone...". I kissed her on the head and then on her dry little nose. Everyone else said their goodbye's to her as well and, right before we left, I gave her head and nose a final kiss each. I told her how much I loved her... Gods, I'm tearing up even as I write this... and we left her. She will be cremated and I will keep her here with me forever.
I cried a lot. I couldn't even go into my art studio for a few days following her passing because that was the last place she had lived. Now her bed has been replaced with a couch and I can finally start going through my boxes and setting up my life in there. 
I'm just glad that Chai is no longer suffering. The hardest part about all of this was knowing that I had to say goodbye and knowing that it was indeed the right time for this to happen. The vet had said that Chai had hung on a LOT longer than she had anticipated. I feel like she hung on a little too long because I was too afraid to let her go. Justin was not present at her passing because he doesn't deal with death well at all and he opted to go to work instead. A card came in the mail a few days later-- it was from the veterinary office, sympathising with our loss. I told him about it and he very quickly and firmly told me not to read it aloud. I read it to myself and cried.

Commissions

Oh Look! A STAMP!
Derpy's Price List by SoulveiWinterfall
Custom Ponies Stamp by SoulveiWinterfall
I'll make you a stamp. Woah. Sweet. 
You can use it all you want wherever and you can even say that YOU made it. Sure. Why not. These things take like 5 minutes so I'll do whatever you want. Again, no smut or pr0n. It's not that I'm a prude, I'm just over doing that kind of stuff. 
Sketchy--- Whatever the Hell you want!
Tam and Tin Man by SoulveiWinterfall
Screw Loose Emotion Sketches by SoulveiWinterfall
Quick sketch-- I will draw your OC (or cannon character of choice) in up to six different sketchy poses with flat colours. You can choose the emotion(s) that you want me to convey.

NO Pr0n or smut. Sexy stuff is okay but I'm not doing clop pics, guys. 
Avatuuurrrr or Banner
Pinkie Loves Train Wrecks by SoulveiWinterfall
Look at my Avatar. Now look at this banner here. I will do a thing like that for you. It can be elaborate or it can be simple, I ain't picky. I don't do animations (yet). If you want an animation hit up :iconjustingreene: or :iconlululunabuna: because they are GODS. 
MLP:FiM Style and Sonic Style (or other video game style)
Frigid Drift by SoulveiWinterfall
Clover Veil by SoulveiWinterfall
I will draw your pony OC as a pony and as a Sonic the Hedgehog-style character. If you would rather them to look like a Megaman character then I can do that too. Or a Mario universe character... I honestly don't give a flying shit. It's all up to you! I will also do flat colours. Donate an extra 100 points for some bitchin' shading (or do it yourself, I don't care). If you want this as line art please request it as such. 
Line Art-- You Colour It!
Adventure Time Ponies Line Art by SoulveiWinterfall
AJxRD Line Art Wut?   WIP by SoulveiWinterfall
Do you like to colour? Are you a cheap-ass who can't afford for me to colour it and want to find someone else who will do it for cheapers? Do you just really like my line art? Cool! I'll draw up to three characters doing whatever (no smut or pr0n blah blah blah) and you can do what you like from there! You have to credit me if you colour it and post it on your DA because calling this line art YOUR work is kinda sucky of you. Who does that? Butts, that's who. 
Full Colour, Inked, BG-- Cheap and AWESOME!
Soulvei Pony by SoulveiWinterfall
Applejack VS Godzilla by SoulveiWinterfall
One or two characters. INKED and COLOURED. I will add a stock background if you want. 
I should charge more but I'm not going to until I get some bites. So get in on this dirt cheap special while you can! 

NO SMUT OR PR0N! I will do sexy drawings but nothing clop-worthy.
