Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for February 2020

So far, approximately $116.32 has been raised out of our target of $250.00. We're about 47% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 29 February!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

Feel like ass - so what better animal to draw other than a donkey?

Probably about as much energy I can muster on drawing today - maybe I will pull out the cintiq and pain in bed or on the sofa - but I doubt i'll get much done. For now, enjoy!

Blog: Living the Night Life 2017-01-21T19:53:34+00:00

So for this week's blog - I thought I would talk about my routine for the week.

(First thing is first - after launching a week ago - i've already hit 3 Patrons! I am so happy - Even though it's a small amount - it's a huge goal in a week to hit and I am immensley happy to everyone who is on board with my art! Thank you!)

So, my weekly routine depends entire on how I feel during that day. I love night shifts - however they do come with some consequences of their own.

1: I now live a nocturnal life. Which can be unsocial to most. (However, I am not the most outgoing and social chap, and prefer to stay inside and paint anyway!)

2: You tend to argue with yourself. If you're as big of a work-aholic as I am - you'll realise that your brain and your body begin to argue with one-another - tends to go a little something like this:

Brain: "Wow - it's 8AM! Look at how much work you could get done today!"

Body: "Wh-No. You've just been standing up, lifting, pulling and pushing heavy loads for 9 hours. Sit down, and please go to sleep."

Brain: "But you can sleep when you're dead! You have so many hours to draw stuff!" And so on and so forth.

3: Your sleeping and eating patterns are... weird. You'll find that you'll be eating breakfast before you go to bed, and having a curry when you wake up. I tend to be unable to sleep in bed either - so the sofa is my new bestie for sleeping. I'm not affected by light or noise (unless it's the chinchillas bouncing around the cage like utter maniacs.. then that will DEFINITELY keep me awake..) but for some reason my lush, comfy bed is just too much and I end up tossing and turning. I have to put a movie on the TV and curl up on the sofa in order to doze.

4: A normal 6-7 hours sleep doesn't feel enough. If I went to bed at a normal time (which would be between midnight and 2AM) - waking up between 7AM and 9AM would seem perfectly reasonable and I would be able to get up and enjoy my day. However on nights, this simply isn't the case. I will go to bed arounf 9AM and wake up at 3PM and I will end up throwing my phone to the opposite side of the room and go back to sleep. I could sleep all day if I would allow myself.

However, it is a hell of a lot of fun. Makes my days more interesting and in fact, I have more time to art funnily enough. I usually take the day off arting on the Friday so I have enough energy to plough through as much artwork as I can over my three days off. I try to art as much as I can - I will often take my Cintiq into work and use my hour to continue with my Moonflight pieces - or I will simply do my daily sketch in my Moleskine if it's too much that night.

I don't have to stress with customers around me, and the night shift is quite a close knit team. Pretty comfortable singing around each other and arsing around. As long as we get our work done - it doesn't matter!

Right - back to arting! Thanks for following me, take care and get creating!

chick you've gotta be kind to yourself and not beat yourself up about not working when you get in! XD - also "normal 6/7 hrs" ?? no wais! If I have anything less than 8 I suffer, I'm best on 10! I've just come to accept that now, some peeps need more sleep than others and it doesn't sound like Ur getting the greatest quality w/working nights and all so I'm not surprised if U need a bit more than normal. :) I had to laugh at you talking about eating curry for breakfast! XD - took me back to my student days of having cold pizza first thin! XD I suspect if I were in Ur position of working nights I would still eat my regular meals but at different times to fit in w/my routine. Smoothies are great when U first wake up! ^_^ Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and congrats again on getting up to 3 patrons so soon!! :)

Thanks Kat! I have a habit of beating myself up with working :P Every time I autamatically think to myself "Every moment you aren't painting and improving yourself, someone else is." O___O I do need to sleep more - 7 hours is normal for me hahaha. I love smoothies! I must make more of them :D

Daily Sketches - Days 1-5 2017-01-15T00:06:32+00:00close

So, I have been creating daily sketches recently, which I intend on keeping up. Mostly animal sketches (maybe some fanart here and there...) to keep with the wildlife theme and to warm up for the Rainbow Collection drawings! Enjoy!

Launched! 2017-01-14T15:51:20+00:00

I've finally done it - after a few weeks of restless days whilst working on the night shifts, I have finally managed to launch my Patreon! I spent a long time working on enough art to launch an Etsy store and create a small following - and now I can finally say that Friday the 13th was the day I launched Free Flight and where my journey finally begins.

--

Whilst I am aware of the challenges that are ahead, I understand that Patreon and Etsy are both slow starters - and something that needs constant attention - if I keep at it, it will eventually break through and I will start to see that all the hard work I put into this will pay off. I have one Patron already, which is awesome! And I have goals I wish to achieve within Patreon that will help enable me to paint full time. I have a line-up of work that I am progressing through that will soon be available for Patrons as well as prints ordered to go up onto my Etsy store!

Along with this website, I will be constantly updating my journey. Currently, there are some obstacles I need to clear before I can even consider doing this full time. My current job being one of the underlying issues. I know plenty of artists that have become financially attached to their jobs and too afraid to make the jump from constant, secure income - to the scary world of Freelance.

I need to be earning the same, if not more, than what I am earning at my current job in order for this to be a secure transition.

The other issue I have is the push to do more work at my current job, and thus, lack of understanding that my ambitions are also a priority. Working night shifts are difficult, and currently I have three consecutive days off in order for me to recover some normality and steadily work on my art without interruptions. For example, I currently finish Saturday mornings, and do not return until Tuesday evening - this gives me the weekend to get a good chunk of Patreon content, website updating, Etsy managing and art making done. I also spend my hour lunches and large portions of the day before work also doing this to get as far as I can into my art. As I have been told multiple times; for every second you're not working on improving yourself and getting better, there is someone out there who is.

Anyway - be sure to check my Patreon regularly for exclusive content and be sure to pledge to get access to the Patron-only content! Make sure to check the Etsy store for more stock!

For more blogs - visit my website.

As always, thank you, and keep creating!

Sarah
