I love The Beatles, but these harmonies make them sound tone deaf by comparison.

Violent Femmes
Good Feeling
Recorded 1982-1983

I remember listening to this at least 20 times in a row one night when I was around 14 years old; I was using a tape deck, oil lamp, and thinking of my first love lost. Even though I grew up with lots of great music, that was probably the moment I was subjectively turned-on to real music with emotion, poetry, sadness, love, and authenticity.

Having trouble with consistency when drawing your comic?

Want a cool sculpture of your favorite OC??

Want some merch to sell at a convention table???

Hi, I’m Travis and I’m looking for commission work. Speaking of work, look at those pics above again for a second. Not enough? Quality too low? Check out my instagram, or just browse my tumblr archive.

Did you like that? Well, thanks! So, do you think it’d be cool to have your own art made into a sculpture? Well, shoot me an email with some reference images and I’ll give you a quote!

-

Recommended reference! It’d be best if your reference was orthographic (at least front and side, ¾ wouldn’t be bad either) specific textures you might want, close up drawings of important smaller details, etc.

Whatever reference I get, that’s what the thing will look like (most likely*)!

-

Process and Pricing:

I sculpt using Castilene, which is a wax. This is NOT the final material of the piece. The sculpt will be molded in silicone and your final piece will be cast in a hard urethane plastic, which means if you’d like to get multiples of your commission then that can happen (note: extras will cost more).

Pricing varies on complexity, size of the piece, etc. As a base sum, expect it to be over $100 USD covering all materials and labor, however it should be noted this price may increase or decrease due to complexity, size of the piece, whether it’s a headsculpt, or a bust, or a full body figure, etc.

Interested at all? Just wanna pick my brain? Shoot me an email at willmctrav@gmail.com

*As I sculpt the figure, I will keep you updated with progress pictures where you may send notes if the pose is looking off, if shapes aren’t quite right, if things aren’t looking perfect for you, etc. However, please be reasonable! There can be some major differences between how something looks two dimensional and how it looks sculpted!

Disclaimers: What you see in my sculpts? That’s what I’m good at. Please don’t commission me for a hyper realistic Hugh Jackman complete with every single pore on his face (or anything in that vein), because it almost definitely won’t turn out good and neither of us will feel good about it.

I’m not gonna make art of licensed properties, unless you own the license. Sorry, I don’t want to be sued!

I retain the right to refuse a commission for any reason whatsoever. Mostly I just don’t want to do lewd art or have to try and interpret bad reference art (or violate copyright laws). If you’re not sure whether your reference fits these categories, just ask.

I’ll likely only be doing one or two of these at a time.

I will charge you after the final sculpt is approved by you and before I cast it. This will ensure that I can cover cost of material and won’t waste time making a mold of something I haven’t been paid for.

this is a PSA to fanfic writers that a “gen” tag is supposed to mean a LACK of romance so tagging your romance fic gen because it also includes friendships makes exactly zero sense

please, for the love of all that is holy some of us just want to read genfic and don’t want shipfic and when you use the gen tag on ao3 for shipfic that gets really difficult and really, really frustrating
