KaStar’s 2017 Commission Prices

I really need to start making extra cash to help pay off some bills, so I’ll be open for commissions for the duration.

I’m offering both digital and traditional commissions. Here are the info and prices:

* Prices (excluding comics) are for one character; additional characters will cost extra.
*Each commission will have a simple colored background.

* I will draw any character/pairing. (BATIM is pretty hot right now, I hear. Ya feel me? eh? EHHH? And yes, I still draw Don’t Starve Together stuff, if you’re wondering.)
* I will not draw NSFW.
* I only use Paypal for payment. I will send a Paypal invoice to the buyer as a means of payment. (Because Paypal is super anal about that stuff these days) Buyer must pay upfront before I start!
* Traditional commissions will be done using a mix of Prismacolor markers and colored pencils, Col-erase pencils, and Copic markers. The type of paper will depend on the commission type; either bristol or marker paper.

Commission Prices for Digital

Sketch = $8 (Additional character +$2)
Inked Lines = $10 (Additional character +$4)
Flat Color = $20 (Additional character +$6)
Cell/Soft Shade = $30 (Additional character +$8)
Comic Strips (B/W)*** = $15 per panel, with up to two characters. (Additional character +$3)
Comic Strips (Colored)*** = $20 per panel, with up to two characters. (Additional character +$4)

Commission Prices for Traditional**

Sketch = $10 (Additional character +$4)
Inked Lines = $15 (Additional character +$6)
Flat Colors = $25 (Additional character +$8)
Shaded Color = $35 (Additional character +$10)
Comic Strips (B/W)*** = $20 per panel, with up to two characters. (Additional character +$4)
Comic Strips (Colored)*** = $25 per panel, with up to two characters. (Additional character +$5)

*Pricing also includes the shipping and handling cost.
**If you live outside of the USA, then I will send the drawing the cheapest way possible, unless you are willing to pay extra for a faster delivery. It’ll be your choice.
***Comics will have simple backgrounds, but if the buyer whats something with a lot of detail then we can discuss it more and come up with a agreed price based on what they would like.

If you would like a commission, please contact me via Tumblr, or you can email me at karendishaw@gmail.com. Please title the email as ‘Commission Request’ so I know it’s not junk mail!

I will take as many commissions as I can at the moment. If they get to be too many then I will temporary halt taking anymore until I have more room.

Once again, reblogs are always awesome if you can’t afford a commission right now. If you know anyone that might be interested please let them know.

@ Fandom

The act of taking a single (often minor) action or trait of a character within a work and exaggerating it more and more over time until it completely consumes the character. Most always, the trait/action becomes completely outlandish and it becomes their defining characteristic

Please don’t be lazy when writing your favourite characters.

I see this so often to the point where it’s actually not even commented on in fandom because it’s considered “normal behaviour”. And personally, I don’t think stripping a 3-dmensional character of their depth in favour of recognizably easy bullet-points is something that should be aimed for in terms of writing or drawing. Because it’s easy and lazy.

Some people just want to have fun with their favourites. I gt that. That’s fine. But then why does it have to become the vast majority of things? To the point where you can get criticised for not following the colour-by-numbers formula the fandom has created for itself?

See: Spongebob Squarepants season 2 vs Spongebob Squarepants season 9

Basically any character from MLP:FiM that bronies get their hands on, and then the show itself decides to mirror in order to please said brony audience.
(Specific examples include Big Mac, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, as well as bg characters who have no personality outside of their tropes like Lyra, Derpy, Vinyl Scratch etc etc)

Sans likes Ketchup. Papyrus is sweet and kind. Undyne is loud and violent. Alphys likes anime. Mettaton has a sexy alt form.

For an (extremely extensive) list there’s more here (and this is ONLY Western Cartoons. I’m not even linking anime/video games/live action tv/comics or we’d b here for the next 10 years)

tldr;

3 Dimensional characters with depth and complex inner workings > easy paint-by-number tropes that saves the writer/artist from having to think too hard.
