Emergency commission

Hi everyone!!

I need your help now to raise money. My husband’s computer broke down today, is a little old one, and he is pretty sad. He work as freelance 3D modeler for video games, and without his computer he can not  work. 

The problem is we are pretty short on money, because in june we moving from Chile to Vancouver (i’m going to study there) and we have had many expenses buying tickets, paying visas, etc… so we are out of money. 

So, i’m opening a lot of commission slots, to raise $1500 and can buy him a new computer. He always support me in every of my ideas and plans, so i want help him now.

So the price list is this (Any extra donation will be grateful):

- Bust: $10 (couple $15)

- Medium Shot $25 (couple $35)

- Full body: $50 (couple $75)

- Add Background, charge extra
- Hard armors or difficult desings, charge extra

(Check my tumblr for more art)

Also, i’m open to comic gig if any of you want to hire me (short comics, preferably, ask me about my rates)

FOR A COMMISSION WRITE TO MJBARROSM@GMAIL.COM

If any of you want ask him for a 3D model, just check his art here!

If you can’t ask for a commission, you can share this info and help me to reach more people to achieve the goal.

Thanks a lot!

batshizzmizz  asked:

Hi Leslie! I'm a game design major and after seeing some of my art in class, a classmate of mine asked for me to draw him in some cartoon style. I told him that I don't do that kind of thing for free, so he agreed to pay me. I took the request, but after a bit, I realized that I know NOTHING about taking commissions. I don't know how much to charge, if I should send progress updates or anything really. So that brings me to ask: do you have any tips or insight on doing commissions? Thank you!

OKIE DOKIE

1.) Figuring how much to charge is p hard. I heard there are websites that help you do it. All I can say is make sure it’s never less than the minimum wage. Here in CA I think min wage is $10.50/hr. so I won’t go under that. Technically I’ll spend up to 2-3 hrs per icon so I should be charging up to $30 haha but ech. JUST YKNOW. Dont undercharge! 

2.) Make them pay UPFRONT. Don’t work first and then have them pay! You can get scammed like that really how stupid!! If the person who is commissioning you doesnt want to pay upfront don’t take the commission. They can find someone else then.

OR you can have them pay half up front, do a sketch and send them that, and once they like the sketch they pay the other half and then you finish. But yeah I rather go with full payment up front cuz I refuse to work for free lmao.

3.) I, personally, love sending progress sketches! So that if they dont like something about the picture they can tell me as soon as possible! Nothing sucks more than finishing a long commission AND THEN they ask you to change something they dont like.

“No one could ever be that big of a jackass, Leslie!” UM YES THEY CAN haha trust me. So its best to send people multiple updates if you can afford to do so!

I like to send then a rough sketch WIP. If they like it I’ll do the lineart and send them that too. Once they approve the lineart I finish the coloring! The end!

4.) Communication is VERY important! Try to keep your commissioner updated often! If you dont talk to them for a while they’ll think you abandoned them and their commission. If you need a vacation or hiatus or whatever let them know! 

5.) REQUIRE VISUAL REFERENCES. unless of course it’s a custom adoptable or something. Nothing sucks more when someone is like “can u draw my oc they have short brown hair and blue eyes thanks :)” LIKE NO THANKS 

Not having visual references makes things incredibly hard! If they have no references then it’s considered a custom adoptable (you design a character for them) and that is usually more expensive than normal commissions! CUZ YOURE DESIGNING A CHARACTER FOR THEM WOWIE yeah 

6.) Be upfront about how long it’ll take you to finish the commission! If you think it’ll take you a week tell em! A month? Be honest! Dont say youll have it done in 2 days when you know youll be extremely busy or whatever haha like I said, COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANTE! 

TREAT YOUR COMMISSIONER THE WAY YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED IF YOU WERE IN THEIR SHOES!

7.) If the commissioner is rude, too impatient, overall an unpleasant person it’s okay to drop them. Give them a refund and let it go, you HAVE that right. Don’t put yourself in a position you dont want to be in. If they cant be professional you can leave. If you give them a full refund you owe them nothing more. Sometimes people are assholes so don’t work with them. 

THATS ALL I CAN COME UP WITH RIGHT NOW. HOPE SOMETHING STICKS WITH YOU!! GOOD LUCK YOU’LL DO GREAT!!

Think about what Daisuke’s saying here.

Nothing disturbs his mind. This is Daisuke; nothing ever gets to him, because he never thinks too hard. He charges in and gives it his all no matter what he’s facing, and he never gives up no matter how rough things get.

But after hearing the fear and doubt in Ken’s voice and feeling his hand shaking, Daisuke actually begs Ken to stop. Because if Ken keeps going on like this, it’ll mess him up.

50 foot monsters have no effect on Daisuke.

Ken does.

  • likes to cuddle a lot
    • no this is not funny or cute or considerate he will drape himself over u like ur an actual body pillow and he will not move for hours. you’d better have your phone charged. bitty learned the hard way
    • altho it’s a fun time for the other stoners like one day you’ll come into the haus and jack, shitty, lardo and maybe nursey’s in a cuddle pile on the disgusting couch
  • laughs at EVERYTHING (like any other stoned person but it’s just weird seeing jack not being a hockey robot)
    • he once started laughing at the concept of a hockey puck. why is a puck like that (“like what, jack?”) like…. that
  • asks concerning questions “what if the ice in faber broke” “what” “like, what if you got checked so hard u broke through the ice and there’s water underneath and u go for a nice lil swim” “Jack the ice is stable enough to hold a bunch of huge jocks–” “I’m gonna break it tomorrow and see what happens. bitty do you think there’s fish in there” “JACK NO" 
    • "BITTLE why do u make so many pies” “…because I’m a baker? I love baking???” “but that’s… there’s so many pies. how do you do it” “i bake them. with ingredients. Jack are you okay” “THERES SO MANY PIES BITTLE” “jack please get off of me my phones dead and i need to charge it i beg u" “ARE YOU A PIE WIZARD”
  •  he gets intensely focused on the smallest of things. again, bitty learned this the hard way when, not only is he pinned down and bring spooned by a giant hockey man, the giant hockey man decides to count every single freckle on his face. or almost pokes your eyes out trying to measure your super long eyelashes with a ruler. what the fuck, jack
  • gives and requests affection. he once called his dad asking if he loves Jack. "of course I do, Jack. why do you ask” “aw that’s good I love you too papa i give u a lot of shit but ur the best dad ever sorry for pooping in the stanley cup” “what–” “*hangs up*”
Things I hate about each type

ESFJ- being two-faced, shallow conversations

ISFJ- not speaking up, complacency

ESTJ- pushiness. too hard charging. 

ISTJ- too conventional, uncomfortably rigid, sellouts

ESFP- self-absorption. not everything you say is interesting.

ISFP- wishy-washiness

ESTP- physically loud (takes up so much space), meaningless action for the sake of action

ISTP- too reserved

ENTJ- … sometimes too hardcore

INTJ- emotional immaturity (esp infuriating with INTJs because they just try to rationalize it away or think their academic intellect compensates for it)

ENTP- I don’t know ENTPs enough to name one

INTP- weird hyper inflexibility/ rigidity on mundane things. their nice/ fuzzy outsides also confuses the shit out of me

INFP- weirdly absorbed in own world. inconsistency. 

ENFP- really bad listeners despite being such humanists

INFJ- cold exterior shell, and then complaining about not having friends

ENFJ- Nothing. we are the master race. 

             He fiddles with his phone in the dwindling light, turning the reflective glass this way and that, hoping to catch a glimpse of his forever companion. The air feels too still and stiff, charged. It’s hard to tell if the chattering is in Sam’s ears or if someone passing by would catch it, too, and when he slumps against the mossy park bench he laments that he can’t distinguish the footsteps of the later park goers from the clicking and stomping of its shadow. It looms over him and he’s the only being cloaked in darkness against the setting sun’s backdrop. Sam’s a sore thumb. A body next to him isn’t enough to pull his eyes from the phone screen, not when he can see flashes of big, angry teeth just at his ear. There and gone. 

             “He’ll get you. You should go,” he says and his voice seems to buzz, like when he would talk into the fan as a boy. “You should go.”

A challenge for building your bios: 3 connections

-Make every dragon have 3 relationships with different dragons in your lair 

-Other types of relationships- with familiar, environment, charge, Hard Mode- a dragon in someone else’s lair (only if they allow it tho)

-They can be rivals, friends, lovers, mates, relatives (blood or not blood), enemies, soldiers in arms, trainers, mentors, alliance, sales, etc 

-Hard mode 2- no lovers, mates, or relatives

-Writing extra- write drabbles and shorts describing everyday interactions in these relationships or write how they meet or even how they parted ways. If they live long distance, write about how they keep in touch and what they talk about. 

Overall, this is just to get your dragons from being just individuals to being members of a clan which talk and interact with one another, and to get a sense of everyday life within your clan. You don’t need to even specifically write about it, just create a connection in the bio via link/image and tag what that dragon or creature means or relates to that specific dragon.
