I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed). 

Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.

But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.

I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.

And, that really scares me. 

As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.

So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at maryzolgarcia90@yahoo.com

If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.artor Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.

Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.

Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.

I never upload at normal times haaah.  I’ll do a reblog tomorrow.  I was just like LET ME UPLOAD THIS NOW FRFUFJKLF.
The way in which I work: I don’t know how to do fire/lighting/much less render clothes well with or without lighting/most situations LETS DO A CRASH CORSE.
You literally have to throw me into uncomfortable situations for me to do something sometimes.  Like when my mom was teaching me to snorkle years ago and I threw a fit she went YOU GOT THREE MINUTES TO LEARN.
:D
AAAH YOU GUYS REMEMBER GWEN? (between spelling her name Gwen and Gywn) MISS CHOCHIN I QUICKLY DREW BEFORE? here she is again NOW IN RENDERED COLORS THAT MADE ME CRY.
Gwen is the type who is almost prepish, but really wants to be your friend but is horribly rough on you.  She’s into fashion (reallyneedtolookupmoreonthatnexttimeforherhAAH) and often comments “that looks horrible on you” and before you get really angry she goes “here this is what you need” and most if not all the time she’s right she knows how to pick out clothes for people she’s just..blunt.  About everything.  She’ll back off though if you ask her but she’s just a little pushy.  Something Trevini gets used to/deals with, but Seika stares at her for.  Seika of the three is also the tallest which for some reason amuses me when she stares off when annoyed with Gwen.
She’s one of those people you find hard to get along with at first, but then you learn to and about their quirks.  Her sister often tells her she’s being to blunt and she goes WHAT SO? I’M JUST TRYING TO HELP JEEZ.  She’s a rival to Trevini/Seika, only for them later to find out she’s like WE’RE FRIENDS when she goes to defend them only to..confuse them like wait I thought you hated us all those huge battles..to which she says I WAS HELPING YOU TRAIN.
Gwen is super scary in a fight, her flames aren’t just green to be green, they’re toxic.  She’s all kinds of toxic what not and flames all together in one.
She’s the type who always means well but doesn’t have great execution with..the meaning well.
While Gwen is a Chochinobake demi she’s a little different in some areas.  All Chochin demis have tails, but only one.  Two tails AND wings is usually seen as a sign that you’ve been blessed by a certain fire god/sign of bad luck.  There is also a Kasaeda who also has two tails/wings.  This is a world wide known thing so anyone with two tails (with or without wings) are given funny looks.  Even kitsunes and nekomata, until Kitsunes get three tail and up..nekomata are always given crooked looks and they’re just like EY.  Two tails more then the wings, even though they’re a combo, just tends to make people go AH.
While Male Chochinobake have their flames come out through the opening on their head, like normal lamps, females don’t.  Males have wrap like strands for hair.  Females funnel it through an opening in the back for fire hair.
Color process: http://fav.me/d7vgnxe
AAAh the reason I showed the process steps is so you guys can see I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing BUT this is what helps me. Seeing my process/improvement through the picture in color stages helps me to keep pushing ahead.  Nothing gets me more discouraged like backgrounds and full on coloring.
This is Gwen’s fighting pose or something.
Gwen resides with mee and the lore of chochinobake between I and chilopodacrudus .  Poor Mache, boy can’t even hit on her without Gwen being like HAH TOXIC FIRE IN YOUR FACE. 

IT’S GWEN; THE BANE OF ALL MACHE’S EVERYWHERE.
I gotta say; I was taken back when you showed me this, you have improved SO MUCH in so little time and you will continue to if you keep it up and I KNOW YOU WILL. The details you packed into this and the texture you used on everything looks so freaking NICE. She looks intense and lively and you really made her personality shine through in her pose and in her super detailed face.
The wrinkles and folds in her wing arms and hands are wonderful and her mouth; her teeth and tongue are detailed to hell and back.
I LOVE THE FIRE THE FIRE WAS DONE IN SUCH A COOL WAY with the texture on the wings and arm. Your anatomy has improved too aaah.
I look forward to seeing everything you do; KEEP IT UP GIRL!

Rest in peace Robin Williams; I’m so sorry you had to go through what you did and my thoughts and prayers are with your family. I hope you are at peace and you’ll always be in my thoughts as a huge part of my childhood growing up.

Still in love with this Zoid’s design. The original was larger; sizing it down made the half tones look a lot more like solid colors. Hrm.

Still in love with this; thank you so much!
