You know, it seems all of a sudden I am getting hit with notes asking about commissions/work offers so let me clarify so that we're all on the same page...Context of art:
Firstly I won't draw
these things for my own reasons which are not open to debate:
Yaoi / Yuri / Smut / Soft Pr0n / Nudity
Marvel / DC / American Comics / Disney
Original Characters for your story
Portraits of your Girlfriend / kid / goldfish / etc
What I will draw
Capcom characters and some other Anime/Manga/Game characters at my discretion. Maybe even 5C stuff too one day...Where/When:
90% of the time, I will only do commissions at conventions. I have a very tight scheduel with my family and work both already competing for time. It's not about money, there are only so many hours in a day.
If later on, time opens up, I will open up for commissions. I also give extras as well with my commissions, but they're surprises! I draw on real paper, you remember that stuff? So you get the original art too as well as high res colour file if applicable.Covers and pro work:
I am exclusive with UDON, and I don't accept any contract outside of UDON so please feel free to contact them. I also don't work without advance pay, too many crooks ruin it for everyone.
I don't play that "you get XX% when money comes in" stuff either. Collabs:
It's not something I do. Generally:
Commissions to me are things that only occur at conventions, I have kept that policy for years and it works for me. Though if you peruse my gallery you will find other people who have got online commissions from me.
Here's one of the better examples:
Thing is that if I like the subject matter or feel confident I can deliver, i do it and enjoy it. The end result is that the product looks convincing and genuine. You ask me for marvel stuff or things listed above in the 'won't draw' list, then it will not be fun.
You can like what you want, and its up to you, but there is nothing that compels me to draw anything just to make a buck or two.(Did that rhyme?)
Sure someone can say "Oh well, you could make tons of cash, or if you're a real artist you would draw different things etc" That might be your opinion, but like I said it's not about money and I don't have anything I've got to prove to anyone.
Regardless, I do very much appreciate your patronage! When you come and see me at a con I make very very sure to give you the best and most ardent effort I can. I'm sorry if i won't draw your vision or fancy and i am pretty sure you'll find plenty on dA to fulfill your desires.
You guys will be the first to know if I open for commissions so worry you not! Till then, sit back and enjoy the show.
I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
