Emergency situation - please read
Alright, so as people who’ve been reading here know by now, my desktop’s hard drive is in dire need of a replacement, and I can’t use said desktop until then. Problem is, neither of my laptops are equipped for drawing (hell, this one’s barely hanging on courtesy of Ubuntu), so I can’t exactly do the usual sketch streams to raise the money. Add to this the fact that I’ve yet to find a job after months of searching and I’m in a lot of debt as-is and… yeah, I really need the help.
Now, if you guys want to assist, there are two ways we can go about it:
Might as well get the begging out of the way, so I’ll make this quick: If you guys have some spare cash and just want to help out, no strings attached, then my paypal address is email@example.com.
Just… don’t send any payments in advance in that direction. If you’re gonna pay for a pic, wait until it’s done. Speaking of…
B. Traditional sketch commissions (limited time)
Here’s something I haven’t done in a long time. I have the tools, and I have the experience - I just never did these here ‘cause A. a digital canvas is more flexible when it comes to size, and B. I can’t stream these (no camera).
Here’s an example of how these will look like:
(original post is here)
Now, these will be both more expensive and more limited in terms of content than sketch streams due to both tool costs as well as the canvas being of limited size (11 x 14 in). Best to ask beforehand if an idea is doable. but I will try my best.
Tools are mostly graphite (pencils as well as sticks) with the addition of charcoal if something needs to be darker than a 6B allows. Paper can be white, tan or grey, with the latter two including white highlights done with either white charcoal or pastels (depending on how dark the picture is).
Base cost is $12 per character with added costs depending on complexity. All prices are negotiable to a degree - all I ask is that you mind the Will Not Do list while keeping in mind the “will cost extra” bit right below. And of course, I won’t request payment until the product is finished (in fact, I would rather I not get paid until then).
Oh, and they’ll be posted either here or on the recently-made SFW blog depending on the content.
Please send all inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org (notice the different email) with the subject line “Commission” so I can keep track of it easily. I’d take the info via tumblr, but I’ve learned not to trust it much when it comes to the delivery of messages.
Thanks for the consideration, and sorry for the suddenness of this announcement.
