Finally my vacation truly started
My nephew will come around for a week tomorrow so I will be a bit occupied but I intend to spend the next 4 weeks working hard on those commissions! An up to date list of those and slots can be found at the bottom of this journal
Patreon and Ko-Fi:
other than that I'm still struggling with patreon - not because of the lack of patrons, I never expected much of it - but about posting exlusive content over there. I have a really hard time deciding to post something over there as a low grade reward and keeping my major audience over here out of it <_< I don't aim on making a living of such sites or anything so I don't really see a reason to throw my best works over there for only a few to see. That's not why I do art - I want to share it with everyone, honestly, because that is what I enjoy and I want people to see and be part of what I love. And I want to share my knowledge - mainly tutorials, with everyone who wishes to learn.
I eventually switched to posting only wips and some sketches exclusively over there, and some step by steps processes occasionally - next to my favourtie pieces that are here as well - it might not attract people but that's alright. I made this patreon account for those who simply want to support me in my art and not for people to get tons of things others don't. And I totally understand if patreon is not an option for most since it is a monthly thing and even giving 1$ a month is alot to ask from a stranger on the internet.
I will keep my patreon and keep posting there, even if I get nothing out of it - luckily I'm not depending on sites like this. But it's nice to have a means of support option if at some point someone wants to share a bit
I also discovered ko-fi - which is a nice option to make a one-time payment to an artist or another person one wants to support. I created a ko-fi button and if you want, you can buy me a coffee in support for my art. When buying a coffee you can also suggest me something to sketch
I'll favor those ideas when I've a moment for random doodles. Adopts:
there's still adopts waiting for new homes, check them out!
and new ones are on the way as well! commissions:
commissions are currently open! I'm aiming to get more pocket money for my croatia trip!
those are my current slots in no order: (If I missed someone remind me please)
ref sheet - full color comic cell - lining - paid
full color soft with bg - sketching
ME Drell OC - full body, full color cell - not started yet
two OC's fighting - waist up, comic cell - not started yet
6. OC design - two views - full color cell - possibly second char, discussing details
7. full body full color cell - sketch approved, awaiting payment
I intend to work on those during my vacation - and after croatia, so if you apply for a slot be sure to consider that it takes several weeks to be done. But rest assured, payment won't be required before I actually started working on your art and you have approved of the first stage.
I will still accept slots - following those rules:
due to my current slots being 'big' commissions I'm more inclined to accept additional slots for less time consuming artworks
follow these rules if you want to apply for a slot:
tell me what sort of commission you are looking for - use my pricelist for the categories and so on. Commission Pricelist 2016/2017
I need sufficient refs of all characters included (no matter if canon or not).
It is up to me which commission I choose to do, no hard feelings if it's not yours. No 'first come first serve'. If I do not reply to you, I did not choose you, sorry.
don't haggle about prices - you want art form me, you pay the price, simple as is. Too expensive? There are tons of great artists on this site, you'll find someone else
--> please simply write a comment or note with the details - something like this: 'I'd liek to have character A + character b - full body, full color cell - no bg - in a fighting scene' ^^ I cannot decide to accept commissions without having all these infos first and I dislike holding endless conversations to work out the details when in the end I cannot accept the commission due to various reasons.
that's all - thanks for taking the time and reading!
