It looks like I'll probably wrapping up this month with a total of twelve figures completed, (the majority of them currently being 90% done and finished up during the next few days. Particularly the Lunar Republic that has been taking far longer than it should have.) >>;; And while that's fewer than estimated, it's still way higher than the rate of new commissions taken per month, which means we're still gaining ground on catching up.
And to be honest, the main reason I set ten figures to be worked on in November rather than fifteen was because I knew that there would be stragglers that didn't quite get finished during the September/October blitz. Mostly figures that had an accessory or two that proved to be more difficult than I thought, or a piece of clothing (in particular, I need to get some fur-textured fabric samples for several commissions.) In fact, I'm not even going to set a specific completion list for December at all, because I know there will be a bunch of not-quite-done figures I'll want to get out the door by the time I go home for Christmas. But in general--every commission that was ordered prior to this summer will be finished by the end of the year. And the commissions that will have had modeling work done by then (but probably won't be fully sanded/painted yet) are Neon Lights, Bowtie, Nightmarity, and Mach.
Next week I'll be taking a break from the modeling to paint keychains for a local convention, but since I'm fairly ahead of schedule on the modeling side, it shouldn't impact the production schedule much.
So, all that being said, the persistence of bills and such means that commissions slots are open for November. Same as last month, only five slots, so if you've been wanting one, grab it now. February-ish completion date? (As always, take turnaround time estimates with a jar of salt. As the modeling queue shrinks, my estimates are gradually getting more accurate, but it still is best to treat it like a kickstarter reward of the distant future.)
