So I think this week is gonna be a modeling week! I mailed out almost all of the ponies that had been completed before Everfree, as well as most of the figures that weren't completed at Everfree, minus the big two (Discord and NMM) that'll be finished tonight or tomorrow. All in all we're running out of things on the paint queue, other than 498423 Lunas, so this means it's back to modeling for me! Throughout the next two weeks I intend to finish modeling:
Talcom + Snow Flake - Hottspinner
Evan After + Inspiring Writer - Ynsawk
Demoth - Poison Hearts
Quicksilver - KlivanRobert
Starshadow - spencercool1
Fausticorn - Stormy-Seas
Which will bring the modeling queue down to the shortest it's been in ages! That should make it primed for total completion throughout August! And since I've been carefully rationing what money I had left from the Everfree Aftermath, right around the beginning of September is when I'll be needing to make more, which means commission slots will be freely open at the start of September with no waitlist and minimal backlog for the first time in the entire length of time we've been doing this. However, since I know having commissions fully open for the first time since like January will result in a flood of orders, I'm gonna be refining the rules for applying for commission slots, based on the way that some of the more popular and frequently-swamped sculptors handle their orders. I'll be posting that at some point as it gets closer to September, but it'll probably be something like 6-8 custom slots opening on the 1st of every month, and I'll have an order form for people to submit via note, and then the following week I'll post the selection of orders we've decided to take on. Reprints will of course remain always open, and eventually we plan to build up an inventory of them to put on our etsy shop.
