Oh man.

So I have a collection going of birds. Just birds. All the birds. That's my goal! To have all the birds. You can see what I have so far here!

I've now gotten to the point where the birds I have left to acquire are all 1 million sP and over. A surprising amount of them are like, 40 mill+! Some of them weren't even in usershops and those'll be interesting to find...

I guess my collecting really slows down from here. I even started selling art to scrounge up some extra money but have gotten surprisingly few bites. Probably because I said I didn't want to do humans, hahaha. It's true though, everyone only had me drawing their HAs or human OCs and I was so bored with it!

Anyone else have a sort-of one-item collection?

People know me, know that I *love* gryphons. So of course, my collection is Irion ;) I think I've got all the items that are out there for Irions now.

And I have a 2nd gallery with My Little Hikei because I'm such a My Little Pony geek XD

Wow, seriously? Hardly any takes on your art? O.o I must remedy this! =D

I really think I would've gotten more bites if I'd allowed humans, but I don't wanna! All my past Subeta commissions have been humans and they just aren't any fun for me to draw, but I've noticed a lot of Subetians are obsessed with even making their pets human characters instead of, well, pets. That said, I don't think 3-4 mill for what I'm offering is too much, so it was a little weird to only get a couple people interested.

How long did it take you to finish your collections? I've been working on mine basically since I returned a couple months ago, but it's gonna be an uphill slog from here!
HollyAnn: aroo?hollyannvix on January 2nd, 2012 07:54 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't be any good at it, because I can't draw humans, period >.< I suck at it. They always turn out looking way too cartoony to what people want =P

Should I send you a RMail for a drawing request? :) I've never boughten art commissions on Subeta before =D

Oh wow, for the My Little Hikei collection, it didn't take too long to complete cuz there's really not that many to collect. But for the Irions, it took a while...I completed most of it before my last hiatus, so I don't remember how long it really took. When I came back a couple weeks ago, that's when I found out I had a few more I didn't have in the collection already, so I got those within a few minutes :)

Which of your birds are you missing? I can check my Safe if I might have some that you don't have already :)

Aww! Well if you really wanted to purchase a slot, go here: http://subeta.net/forums/view/830884 and feel free to drop refs in a reply like the others have! No pressure though, but if you really want one of my speedpaint headshots I'm totally up for it!

As for what birds I have left, a fair amount of them, hah. You can see here: http://subeta.net/wishlists/Kayla-La/59386 It's easy to keep track with a wishlist and I update it anytime I buy new birds, it's just starting to get pricy!

Sorry for the delay in response, I'm starting to make lunch. Decided I'm totally gonna have some coffee with it.

Well it sounds like it didn't take you long! Was there anything particularly expensive in your collections? It's the 40 mill+ things I'm dreading!
HollyAnn: I'm innocenthollyannvix on January 2nd, 2012 08:30 pm (UTC)
No worries :) Lunch is good =D

Ok, I've posted a post on your speedpaint thread, I'm totally game for 2 headshots if there's room for two :)

I also saw you didn't have a few birds in your gallery, but I had some in my Vault, so I sent those along to you :)

Wow, I see what you mean though, many of the ones you're looking for are 1 million and up O.o For the speedpaint headshots, I'm happy to send you sP for it, or if you'd like birds from your wishlist to trade for them, I'm good for that too! :)

I think the Emerald-Encrusted irion Plushie was the most expensive for me, it's going for almost 2 million now, and I paid about that much for it too XD I'm still waiting to see if they come out with more Irion stuff so I can add them to my collection :)
Danikayla_la on January 2nd, 2012 09:20 pm (UTC)
JUST finished making lunch, I had to wait on my roommate to finish in there so I went and pruned plants and watered them and all that, so it took me a bit, sorry about that!

I'll go take a looksee now and reply over there!


Things have definitely inflated all around. Have you looked at the price of Gold Account medals and CSC credits in people's user shops?? Oh my god, they just EXPLODED in price!
HollyAnn: HUZZAH!hollyannvix on January 2nd, 2012 10:39 pm (UTC)
LOL now it's my turn to say sorry for the delay ;) I'm learning how to crochet amigurumi style and had to put it down to make supper ;) I'll be here-and-there throughout the evening tonight and tomorrow.

I haven't posted on the forums in Subeta in...well...a very, VERY long time, so hopefully those links will work - the only reference pictures I have of them are their actual pet graphics. I remember I drew Clax ages ago, but I can't remember where it might be now.

Yeah I've seen the Gold Account Medals and how much they're going for now O.o I've got one 1-month medal tucked in my vault for whenever I want to use it again, but I want to make sure I'm an active player on there for a while and for a while afterwards, to make sure I make good use of it ;)

I'll pick up however many birds that will make up for the monies for the pics and send them your way :) Just let me know how much each pic is worth, since I see it also depends on complexity and such ;)

GA accounts are so useful for me so I try to keep subscribed, but now I feel like I'm better off paying the 5 dollars over trying to pay the sP! But I just love my auto-pricer, my autotraining, my extra pet slots... things are just so much more convenient for me with it!
HollyAnn: YAY!hollyannvix on January 3rd, 2012 01:07 pm (UTC)
I haven't had a GA account in ages, probably since the last time I was really active in Subeta, and I wanted to make sure I was going to continue to be more active there before I use it, otherwise it might seem like a waste.

Ok, I got two birds for you in my trades, it's Lot #5129575, just make a junk offer, and those birdies are payment for the headshots :)
Danikayla_la on January 3rd, 2012 06:45 pm (UTC)
Offer made! When I get to you, remind me these have been paid for already if I say anything about payment, I might forget!
HollyAnn: YAY!hollyannvix on January 3rd, 2012 07:33 pm (UTC)
Offer accepted! You have some new birdies for your collection :)

And will do! :)

Ah, well if you decide you want one, feel free to reply! I should really clear out the complete ones... I didn't really have limited slots, I just wrote up to 5 'cause that just happened to be the number I stopped on. *laughs*

Yeah? Would you be willing to sell them for a little bit of a discount or the like?

Danikayla_la on January 2nd, 2012 09:34 pm (UTC)
Aww! Well I'd definitely appreciate it! Looks like both of them are about 5 mill together (the base headshot price is 3 mill), lemme know what you'd like to do! :)

Yeah, but the URL was broken, which might've been why it was screened, not sure! Would you please comment with your refs and stuff on the forum post itself so I can easily keep track of things?

Oh! I was confused, then I saw that you're Magica over there, haha! I'll edit you in for two slots!

I collect almost everything - weapons, minions, holiday items, sea-themed items, site NPC items. I'm possibly a tad bit crazy that way.

My major thing, though, is Chibi Merana Bobbehead Dolls. I have over 6000 of them here.
Danikayla_la on January 3rd, 2012 01:48 am (UTC)
Oh, those!! I get those sometimes when I buy CSC (I think) but I usually just donate them, I'll try to remember that you collect them!! Do you mind if I friend you on Subeta?
Queen of Peacocks: Spike: Framed Portraitlizblackdog on January 3rd, 2012 01:52 am (UTC)
not at all XD
Laurenmonkeyshine4616 on January 3rd, 2012 06:48 pm (UTC)
I used to collect everything orange, and I had a pretty impressive collection. But I stopped playing Subeta a while back, and mostly just get on every now and then to do some gifting. I sent you a couple of birdies. Hope you enjoy them!
Danikayla_la on January 3rd, 2012 06:49 pm (UTC)
Are you Frick? I about had a cow, man!
Laurenmonkeyshine4616 on January 3rd, 2012 11:34 pm (UTC)
That was, indeed, me. :)
