The Escape
They darted down the passage, Edmund trailing behind. He paused every so often to cast an eye back into the darkness and listen for footsteps. The floor dipped after a sharp turn and they found themselves splashing through ankle-deep water. The tunnel became dank with moisture. It narrowed, too, until they could only pass through one by one. Edmund held his torch high in the vain hope of lighting the way.
At last, the passage opened again; the party clustered together once more. Edmund found himself beside Andar.
 “This way,” Tethor called over his shoulder, gesturing in the light of Drey's torch toward an archway.
Everyone moved to follow, save Edmund. He turned instead to Andar, grasping his coat and shoving him into the wall with such force, it surprised even Edmund.
“I know what you told them, but I need to know for myself. Did you give that order?” The party ground to a halt. Edmund could feel their stares, but he didn't care. He kept Andar pinned to t

Okay, so some ideas were: for larger donation amounts a gift card, maybe to Amazon, or if you can think of something more art related great(obviously these gift cards would not be for large amounts); prints of your artwork(not your originals, just a signed copy of something); a small original/custom piece of signed artwork- I guess for a somewhat large donation amount.
That's all we have so far, but if you like any of those I guess it's enough to get your funding thing up on that site...  I don't know.
suburbanbeatnik Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Sounds good! I'm putting together a list of my ideas. I'd like to email them to you when I'm done. Is that all right?
AuroraMaryte Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014   Artisan Crafter
Yeah, that'd be fine.  My email is or you can message me on Facebook.  :)
AuroraMaryte Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014   Artisan Crafter
Okay, so I've got a group together.  I'm asking them for ideas for what rewards you can use for the levels for the funding site, hopefully they'll come up with good ideas.  The only characters you don't have done yet that people are desperately claiming and want to be so far though are Ariel, Snow White, and Megara.  So things seem to be working out okay.
Still, I hope you can do the funding site and get more Disney characters drawn.  :)
