Yes, they were open before too but that journal was getting old and I wanted to make it more organized! (: So here are the types of things you can commission me for!

Examples: Construction Paper Katy! by HiMyNameIsNickel Derpy and Raindrops, Best of Friends by HiMyNameIsNickel Nickel's Epic Yarn by HiMyNameIsNickel Wielder of the Wind Waker :: Trade/Gift by HiMyNameIsNickel Pabu the Fantastic (Paper) Fire Ferret! by HiMyNameIsNickel

As you can see, I can do fun drawings for you in a style that's meant to emulate felt or construction paper! I specialize in G4 My Little Pony and I'm willing to do canon characters, as well as OCs! I may also be willing to do some other cartoons/video games in this style, at my discretion, so feel free to ask! But I'm always willing to do ponies!

Simple pony drawing (such as the ones above): $5 per character
Complicated OC designs: Add +$1-5 depending on complexity
Simple background: +$3
For other requests, just ask and I'll price it for you!
I'll also consider art trades! I am pretty short on cash lately so I can't promise I'll accept a trade, but there's no harm in asking, since I do love to see fan art of my OC, Shiny Nickel!

Examples: Fluttershy Blanket by HiMyNameIsNickel Derpy Hooves Blanket by HiMyNameIsNickel Doctor Whooves/Time Turner Blanket by HiMyNameIsNickel

Fun fleece pony blankets with cutie marks! These blankets are both incredibly soft and incredibly warm. I have two myself and I love to cuddle up in them for naps or TV watching! The ponies I can make blankets out of depends on the colors/patterns of fabric I have available at the moment, but let me know what you're interested in and I'll see what I can do to make it for you! I can do any canon characters, background characters or even take a shot at OCs if that's what floats your boat! If you want something other than ponies, I can also try to accomodate. (A couple of my friends have asked for sports team themed blankets, for example.)

$60 base price (plus shipping)
Most designs will fall into this base price. Depending on the character you want, it could be slightly more if I have to get special fabric or if they have a really complicated cutie mark.
I may also be willing to make blankets in trades for other pony crafts, like handmade clothes or plushies. Feel free to ask!

Hi, my name is Nickel.
I'm a photographer, a videographer, an urban explorer, a Buffalonian.
I've been to 21 countries.
Long live Elmwood Village.
Always yield to the hands-on imperative.
Rockabilly saved my soul.
We do not forgive, we do not forget.
Derpy Hooves is best pony.


:icondecoralovely: is my friend

I have avoided getting a DA account forever because I have found my flickr ( and my vimeo ( to be sufficient for my professional interests. But lately I've found myself drawn more and more towards crafty endeavors and I figured it was about time. While I might share some of my photography here from time to time, it would be better viewed at my blog, Urbex Buffalo. I'm going to use this more to share physical things that I like to make from time to time. (Cosplay, props, ponies.) And some of my digital art that doesn't really fit in anywhere else. Typography mostly. And possibly take commissions in the future if my work is well received. I have rent to pay.
