I probably made this post already, but I just doing it again to get the word out.
Alright, so I’ve decided to start doing commissions. Hopefully this is something that won’t overwhelm me.
If you are interested in commissioning me, send me an e-mail at email@example.com. I can’t do international commissions, so it’ll be in the U.S. only. I’m accepting 3 commissions at a time. That’s as much as I can handle right now, since college is in full swing.
There are 3 types of (full color) commissions I’ll be doing:
Bust: A simple head-and-shoulders picture of whatever character you wish. ($5.00)
Torso: An upper picture of whatever character you wish. ($5.50)
Full: A full picture (8 by 11 or larger) of whatever character you wish doing something. ($7.00)
No yaoi/yuri//sexually-explicit stuff. Pretty self-explanatory. I will, however, draw nudity. Nudity isn’t one of my strong points, so more than likely there’ll be a refund.
Again, my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also just send me an ask on tumblr. I’ll get started on your commission as soon as I can, since I’m balancing this, a night job, and college schoolwork. I accept payments by PayPal (not sure how it works; if there’s a search thing, put my e-mail in there or ‘Joseph Coburn’.). The commissions will be done traditionally (pencil and paper; my digital skills aren’t really good), so I’ll e-mail you the progress (with the e-mail title being ‘PROGRESS UPDATE’) I’m making on your commissions so that there’s proof I’m not just stealing your money. Once I’m done, I’ll e-mail the completed commission to you with the title ‘COMPLETED’. If it’s not to your satisfaction, I’ll be more than happy to give you a refund as well as an apology.
Why is it so difficult to draw you
I’ve been starting work on my graphic novel idea. Finally settled on a name (The Tamadriel Saga), now I’m just getting the actual plot down on paper. I’ve got a few composition notebooks lying (laying?) around. I’ve just putting down stuff like major players, locales, and brief histories of major continents and such. Getting everything straight in my brain. As for plot, I’ve been doing a raw outline in the form of a play (split into parts, acts within parts, intermissions between acts, and the odd prelude at the start of a part). Once that’s completely done, I’ll start doing dialogue and what have you. During ALL THIS, is character design, environment designs, props, costume design, and research into the backgrounds of stuff in the real world (tvtropes.org is a DOLL for that stuff). To say NOTHING of schoolwork, working at night, and actively trying to lose weight, cholestrol, and become a better person. Yeah.
A lot can happen in 6 months. I aim to come back here and say that ONE of those things listed up there has been satisfactorily completed.
I’m thinking about starting doing drawings with a specific theme. Maybe one for each month? Like Female February, Male March, Anatomy April, something like that. Alternatively, just one week per month. What do you guys think?
Draw something, anything, doesn’t matter what, every day of the year.
