COMMISSION POINTERS and SLOTS (CLOSED)





PRICE


Price Range (depending on detail)
Bust: $15-$25
Half body: $25-$40
Full body: $40-$60

with BG: additional $5-$30 (depending on the detail)

These are my usual prices. However, if character design is complicated enough, I would charge higher than the usual

-------------------------------------------------
Additional character: (depending on detail)
Only on a single canvas w/ BG
Add:
$10-$20- Bust
$20-$30 - Half body
$30-$40 - Full body

REMINDER: Additional characters (w/o interaction with other characters) done on the same transparent or plain white canvas, costs the same as the usual price range because they are as good as those done on a separate canvas

(Will still depend on the details of the character)



POINTERS


:bulletblue: PAYPAL ONLY
I only accept commission payments through Paypal (preferably in USD) Pay for them as "Goods or Services." Kindly pay the additional Paypal fees. To compute them (this fee calculation is only applicable when receiving $ in my country), click -> LINK

:bulletblue: MESSAGE ME REFERENCE & DESCRIPTIONS
Message me some reference pictures, a few descriptions, and some additional pointers about your character.
(ALWAYS keep the words to a minimum)

:bulletblue: NO REFERENCE PICTURES?
If you have NO ready to draw reference of your character, you have to pay an additional $5-$20 for the designing/ conceptualization. (be it character, outfit, accessories etc.)
providing separate references (clothes, shoes, hair, eyes, etc) may lower the additional fee

:bulletblue: BACKGROUNDS?
Yes, I try my best to draw backgrounds, but not very complicated ones, please.
(add $5-$30 depending on detail)

:bulletblue: NO DEADLINES
I don't like being pressured please.

:bulletblue: FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE???
Though this is a first come first serve basis (in slots), it doesn't guarantee that I'll finish yours first than those in the list who are after you. It will all depend on how early you can pay after receiving the sketch. I will skip yours if you can't pay yet when the time to do so comes. I will move on to the next commissioner, and if they pay before you do, then I'll finish theirs first. Why? Coz I don't want to waste time as much as possible :)


:bulletblue: RESERVATION & FORFEITING OF SLOT
Reservation of slots are NOT per commission piece, but per person (to give other people a chance for a slot). However, only a maximum of THREE pieces per slot. Those who fail to reply to me after 3 days (unless w/ a valid reason) will lose his/her reserved slot. (Yes, I will know if you have already read my sent note or not)

:bulletblue: RIGHT TO POST
I have the right to post the commissioned works here in my dA page. (Though it is also my choice if I don't want to post it).

:bulletblue: COMMERCIAL PURPOSES & RAW FILES
Of course if the commission will be used for commercial purposes (advertisements/mass production of any kind) additional fees will be imposed. Same rules apply when asking for the raw file (.psd or .sai)

:bulletblue: MEDIAFIRE
I will upload the file through my mediafire account so you can download it from there. If you want it sent to your email instead, pls tell me in advance.

:bulletblue: WHEN TO SEND PAYMENT
Please send the payment after I show you the sketch and as soon as you APPROVE of it for finalization. I don't like my efforts being wasted and then the commissioner suddenly backs out when I'm finished.

:bulletblue: BLACK LIST
I don't want to mention their names here, but I do have a list of those commissioners who did not pay, seen-zoning me when I ask for their commission details, never replied after receiving the sketch, and didn't even bother to at least tell me whether or not they will continue with the commission because of a valid reason. I'm so sorry (You know who you guys are), but I can no longer trust you, unless you can give me a good enough reason for your actions... :(

Here's a helpful tip on Commission etiquette




I DO...



:bulletgreen: Chibis
:bulletgreen: Loli and Shouta
:bulletgreen: Bishoujo and Bishounen

:bulletgreen: Ecchi and Fan service
:bulletgreen: OC's and Fanarts
:bulletgreen: Simple BG's
:bulletgreen: MILD shounen ai and shoujo ai (no extremes pls)



I WILL NOT DO...



:bulletred: Large groups (maximum characters should not exceed 3 in one canvas)
:bulletred: Mecha
:bulletred: Animal-looking characters (Still acceptable if the character looks more human than animal)
:bulletred: Hardcore sexual theme (like Yaoi or Yuri hentai)
:bulletred: Super Muscle-y, old, bearded guys... or women :))
:bulletred: Super complicated BG's
:bulletred: Human references wanting to be drawn anime style

FAQ





Here is a list of my answers to frequent questions I get from people:

:bulletgreen: When did you start drawing digital?
I started drawing digital in late 2011. But I've been drawing as a hobby since childhood.

:bulletgreen: What programs/software do you use for drawing digital art?
I use Paint tool sai for drawing and coloring, and Photoshop for a few adjustments when finalizing the whole artwork.

:bulletgreen: Graphics tablet that you use?
Wacom Intuos Pro medium

:bulletgreen: Do you do art requests or art trades?
I don't do requests, unless I openly announce in public when I feel like it.
As for art trades, I'm not usually one to initiate coz I'm shy lol.
But if someone comes to me for art trade, I only accept those who are of the same
level of skill, but still depends on my mood.


:bulletgreen: Can you give some tips on designing OCs (Drawing-wise and Character-wise)?
I'm not into designing characters with too complicated outfit designs, but it
depends on my mood. A good tip I can say is to keep it simple and easy to remember
(especially when the OC is a main character)

Most characters in animes we watch have simple designs for them to retain in the minds
of the watchers. Make sure that when you turn your OC into a silhouette, it's
recognizable. You can also add a distinct feature or accessory like the usual anime
characters we know (Kenshin's scar, Hestia's boob ribbon, Yugi's wild and
multi-colored hair, etc).

ALSO! I make sure that my OC is more 'human' in terms of characteristics rather than
the usual anime character troupes (tsundere, kuudere, yandere, etc.)
Yes, I still incorporate those troupes to my OCs, BUT I make sure
that I observe human behavior and and attitude for a valid reason as to why my OC
acts, thinks, or behaves the way they are.


:bulletgreen: What are your favorite genre of animes/mangas?
I used to love shoujo slice of life mangas and animes, but I got tired of them.
I'm now into action-y types with lots of sword play! Yes! I'm into Japanese
historical animes and mangas ^^


:bulletgreen: Will you create a manga someday?
I really want to. I've always planned on creating one, but I am not yet confident
with my toning and inking skills. I'm also the type who doesn't continue what she
started, so I want to make sure that when I start a manga, I WILL stick to it until
the end (meaning, the whole story has to be already written from start to finish).

Ago-kui (Contest entry) by Batusawa
Ago-kui (Contest entry)

I guess it's alright to upload the full version of this image now that the contest is over. Just a little confused about their FAQ because it was said there that it's okay to post our pieces on our blogs or websites. But when I emailed them, they told me not to post...

The theme was ago-kui (chin-lifting)... it was said to be the next Kabe-don XD

Sadly, I didn't make it into the placers. But that's alright. There's still no grand winner (dunno why, but I know they said the awarding ceremony took place at April 16) , but I've seen the 2nd and 3rd placer's pieces in the category I joined in. Both are Japanese, their way of coloring is shiny, almost the same drawing style as Voltage's games, more on office or slice of life romance when it comes to characters concepts.

Oh well... if those are the things they're looking for in picking winners then I'm fine even if I didn't win. I just stayed true to my art style, and still thankful for the experience :)

PS: The guy here is a random character, though he may look a lot like my OC, Faolan, but with longer hair and different eye color lol. It may also appear similar to my Summer themed art because the idea of this concept came from that piece. I have always been thinking about doing that summer themed art, but I subconsciously applied it in this contest entry piece too.

About next batch of commissions

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 23, 2016, 5:24 AM


Hey guys...
I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately...
I'm just really depressed at the moment.
Sleepless nights and tired during the day because of our endless search for our missing dog, Pepper, since the early morning of April 20, 2016

We really love this dog, and she's been part of the family for four years.
Even my diet has been affected by her disappearance... been very stressed out these days.
I never felt like eating... Like my mouth and my stomach keep on rejecting every food I take... 
My stomach may feel hunger, but my mind keeps me from enjoying every bite, so I chew very slow and sometimes find it hard to swallow... idk...

Anyway... I just want to announce that I might not be able to publicly open commissions as I promised that I would for next week.
I might only take those whom I promised to take for the upcoming opening coz they didn't make the cut during my previous commission batch.
:iconbloodofcerberus: :iconmeistergao: and ms. Fallon from FB... (I keep forgetting her dA account name since she had many, and I can't remember which is the latest one) 
I will still set a few rules or restrictions for them though... as usual, I will not take complicated structural BGs at the moment.
Other rules that I could think of are to follow...


I might also be busy for the month of May because O-kun fiesta (a summer anime convention here in the Philippines) will be held on the first week of June. I need to make new merchandise to sell... and I still have more Touken Ranbu merch left from the previous Cosplay Carnival during February. I can re-sell those too, but I want to make a new batch... 
Still can't think of any characters to do because I am still catching up to new and latest animes just recently...
I have always been late on latest anime updates XD There may be times that most of my anime loving FB friends keep on posting about newly released animes, but I'm not the type to watch in an instant. Not really the bandwagon-er type.
I just watch when I feel like it's a good show... and most especially when I have the time.

But I might do some Gintama keychains.
Also thinking of printing that new Karamatsu x Ichimatsu (from the anime Osomatsu-san) fan art I am currently working on as an A4 or A3 poster...
For button pins... not sure what character/s I should do...

Also... I am having second thoughts whether to join that Art book that a group of artists are planning to sell for charity. (some of my artist friends are already joining the said art book since it's open to anybody)
Maybe when I have the extra time... I've seen a preview of the certain character that will be used for the whole art book, and she's just the type of character that I enjoy drawing... traditional Japanese themed clothing are my cup of tea 
It's up to the artists to interpret or portray the character in whatever ways they could think of.

Thank you for those who took the time to read this...
I'm not really in the mood to draw or enjoy other fun activities, but I can't let this depression keep me from finishing the things I have to do...

Guren's sword (OC) by Batusawa
Guren's sword (OC)

Other than the summer heat, Is it just me or is it getting hotter here? LOL

My OC, Guren fresh from the bath… still clinging on to his big and long sword XD

Well, he was originally just using a normal sized katana, but eventually, he also tried using an oodachi. He has confidence in weilding such a large weapon because he is physically stronger than a normal human being.

I actually tried to finish this piece XD
Was having second thoughts… but while I’m still free from art commissions, thought I’d just finish the sketch I left before I started with the summer themed art

They are playing the shooting game to loot lots of prizes ^^ 

Who do you think should play the shooting game?

I love watching and drawing anime, making stories, and original characters...

My art style may vary, but I mostly stick to my favorite Kazuki Yone style, which is my idol and my biggest influence :D

I try to find my own style along the way ^^
The influence of Yone will still be there, but of course, there will still be a distinction between mine and hers :)

Yoroshiku Onegaishimasu! :3
