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!!

anonymous asked:

Would Hanzo ever babysit Rei? If so what would happen

Yeah Hanzo and McCree both babysit Rei! You know that one post where it’s like “Hanzo is that one adult who listens very carefully and seriously to whatever a kid is talking about” it’s a lot like that.  Hanzo knows more about Rei’s OC’s than Genji or Angela just because Genji or Angela will see Rei’s drawing and be like, “Oh it’s beautiful! This is going on the fridge!” but Hanzo will be like, “Hm. Interesting. But why does she have cat ears and how is she able to shoot flames out of her hand?” And Rei’s just like “!!!!!” and goes into her extensive lore about her OC’s.

Before Rei actually fully registers what happened between Hanzo and Genji years ago, Rei thinks Hanzo is like, one of the coolest people ever. She imitates him a little, with the arm folding and the “Hmphs” and will sit down next to him when he meditates and makes that same furrowed brow face and Hanzo’s like, “I’m not like that all the time–am I like that all the time?” McCree thinks this is hilarious

And Hanzo really isn’t sure how to feel about this because Rei reminds him a lot of Genji when they were both kids and Genji thought he was the coolest ever too when he was a kid and so Hanzo’s running with this constant low-key dread that he’s somehow going to ruin this kid’s life if not get her killed. I mean McCree’s able to keep Hanzo in the now and help him out with the guilt and anxiety but it still gets to him. He still tries to be there for her because like, it’s amazing to just be able to see a kid grow up not being groomed for heading a crime family.

 I got some other asks about Hanzo and Rei and babysitting here and here.

Why Kyuranger OCs are fun to make

Making Kyuranger OCs is way more fun than any other Super Sentai show because you’re not restricted to the feeble human and you can do whatever the hell you want in the name of “Alien”/Robots and no one will judge you for it.

A fish robot that has an obsession over organizers and enjoys swimming? Sure!

An alien who can earthbend and looks like a pile of rock and grass that likes to sew and hates loud noises? Fuck yeah!

A creature who looks like human but has deer ears and enjoys writing romance stories in hopes of being in a romantic relationship sometime? Go ahead!

Thank you Toei for creating such a beautiful series with an infinity of possiblities and ideas. Bless you

anonymous asked:

Is it ok that I ship Luca and Papaya?

I gotta say, I love it. I loveeee that some people ship them. 

Especially since when I created them many years ago they weren’t supposed to have any sort of romantic relationship at all. They have more of a “wow I really look up to you please take care of me and teach me things / yeah sure whatever” type of relationship. (technically it’s still like this lmao)

So the fact that people actually like these two dudes in a “pairing” way makes me feel really…magical lmao. It feels like some sort of accomplishment!!   

Seriously, feel free to ship them however you want. I love all of it!!

Hobbit Falls AU

Earlier this week I reblogged a meme that said:

1 - TAKE YOUR OLDEST FANDOM you know the one, that first thing you made art or wrote fic for, where you made all those really weird over the top OCs because you didn’t know any better
2 - TAKE YOUR NEWEST FANDOM yeah, that thing that you love and can’t stop thinking about right now
3- SMASH THEM TOGETHER like freakin’ conceptual play-doh
4 - MAKE SOMETHIN’ OUT OF IT make fic! art! a song! whatever!

And I remarked (in the tags): “if you think I wouldn’t do a Tolkien-Gravity Falls mashup, then you have another thing coming”.

My initial thought was more along the lines of, Ha ha, that would probably work really well with a DD&MD reference or something, Ford and Dipper as elves, etc. etc.

Then on the bus home, it hit me.  The Pines are totally hobbits.  Disreputable hobbits with a taste for adventure, of course.  But absolutely hobbits.  And after that, it wouldn’t leave me alone.

This got long, so… hit the link below for lots of thoughts, plus better views of the figures.

Imagine pre-serum Steve having a ridiculously high alcohol tolerance.

Peggy’s nose is pink by the time she yells “C’mon, Rogers, you’re not even tipsy?”

“Guess not,” Steve shrugs, fiddling with his glass. If there’s anything Brooklyn taught him, it’s how to handle his liquor.

Which is nice, because it means he’s fully alert now when Peggy sways closer, legs tangling together under the table. “I haven’t been drunk in a damn year, you know,” she whispers to him, a “whisper” that echoes across the whole bar.

“Guess you haven’t had all that many vacation days?” he asks, tries to keep himself from blushing when her high-heeled foot strokes his ankle.

She laughs. “No time for sunbathing or drinking cocktails by the pool, Rogers. There’s a war on.”

“Well, tell you what,” Steve says, leaning closer in the hopes that she will, too (she does). “Whatever Erskine’s planning on doing to me tomorrow, maybe it’ll give you a chance to have some vacation days.”

“Or maybe we can win the war together, and we’ll have plenty of vacation days.” Peggy smiles, suddenly more sober. 

“Yeah,” Steve chuckles, “maybe we will.”

Title: I couldn’t let you die part two
-

Because a lot of people wanted a part two here it is hope you like it

It had been a week and (y/n) was now living with them. Fury still told them that if they told her he’d kick their asses. Pietro would always look way too long at (y/n) and if he didn’t catch himself, he knew she would think he was a creep. So he stayed stayed away from (y/n) because he knew that you didn’t look at him the same way. You didn’t remember him the same way he remembered you. He wish he had been shot losing you hurt more then a bullet. He lose the only person he loved.

You say with Wanda and said “does Pietro not  like me?” She looked at you with a funny face and said “why would you say that?”

You replied “when ever I walk in the room he leaves and he doesn’t really even look at me, if I did something will you tell him I’m sorry” she held your hand “trust me my brother does like you”

Later

Wanda walked into her brothers room and said “(y/n) thinks you don’t like her” he looked straight up at her and Wanda added “ just because she doesn’t remember you yet doesn’t mean you can’t look or talk to her”

Pietro said “if I look at her to long I get sad because she got shot and lost her memories because of me and if I talk to her all I would do is tell her who she is and who hear what Fury said it would break her” he looked down and Wanda walked over to him putting a hand on his shoulder “what if it does not break her, she is strong maybe it will help her”

Pietro nodded and said “I’ll talk to her I promise”

The next day

It was early in the morning and (y/n) was looking for something to eat when you hear footsteps you turned around and saw and half asleep Pietro. You smiled and him and said “why are you up so early?” He looked at you and then scratch his head replying “I wanted something to drink” you grabbed a glass and handed it to him he thanked you and you said “is there a reason you don’t talk to me?”

He sat down at the table after getting water and said “if I told you, you would not believe me and the team would kick my ass”

You sat down with him and said “while tell me I promise I won’t tell you told me” he looked at you and said “it has to do with your memories”

You eyes widen you didn’t remember anything and Fury wouldn’t tell a thing and you remember you needed to answer him and said “tell me, no one tells me anything but it’s my memories. Please”

He nodded his head and said “you were shot and saved me and Clint we thought you were dead but Fury brought you back”

You rose a eyebrow and asked “why would I do that?“    "As you said you couldn’t let me die” he answered you

You looked at him and he said “you loved me” he said lover in such s sad and painful way and you asked “and did you love me?” He smiled “I never stopped” then it all came back to you, you felt all the bullet go into you and dying and remember what Fury did to save you and you fell and blacked out.

When you woke up you were in the coach and Pietro was next to you no one else was up so you couldn’t have been out that long and you asked him “how long was a sleeping” replying he told you “30 minutes” you laughed and said “it felt like 30 seconds, I remember I can’t believe you didn’t just tell me thought you be too inpatient”

“They said telling you would break you and you already took bullets for me might as not hurt you more” he said and kissed your head you say up and and smiled at him “so what do we do now that I remember everything how do we tell everyone?”

He shrugged his shoulders and said “they are sleeping we do not have to tell them yet” smirking you hit his shoulder and said “yeah whatever speedy turn in the tv my head still hurts”

Pony!Isaac 5/5

[EN] asian-pony: Only one question left? It’s kinda sad. You should show Isaac the beauty of life, go swimming at least, eat ice cream, look at the sunset.

[Phots] ~ Actually, why not, let’s go!

chilipeppermod: Isaac, how does your life as a camera feel like? 

phantom-bush: Isaac, if you had an opportunity to be reborn as another creature or device, who\what would you like to become?

[Isaac] ~ WE’VE BEEN HERE BEFORE, HAVEN’T WE? IT’S… STRANGE. A LOT OF NEW INFORMATION. SOUNDS, SMELL, TOUCHING… I CAN’T PERCEIVE THEM IN MY USUAL FORM. IT’S VERY… SCARCE. I UNDERSTAND IT NOW, AS I HAVE SOMETHING TO COMPARE WITH. LIVING CREATURES ARE LUCKY. I’D LIKE TO BECOME ALIVE ONE MORE TIME. A BIT LATER.

risingstarkek: And photographs are your kids, yeah?

[Isaac] ~ WHAT IS HE TALKING ABOUT? EVEN I KNOW THAT KIDS DO NOT APPEAR LIKE THIS.

[Phots] ~ Some shipper. Nevermind. Photos are just photos. There’s no need in searching for hidden sense when there’s no hidden sense.

[Isaac] ~ WHAT IS A “SHIPPER”?.. AH, WHATEVER. CAN I ASK ANOTHER QUESTION? HOW DO PONIES EAT?

crypticunicorn: Hey, Isaac, want some mint ice cream?)

callmegallifreya  asked:

What's this about an inuyasha / msa crossover?

Well I think it start half as a joke, but then whoops we accidentally made a full on AU that we like lol

Now this one is a bit weird cause i definitely doesn’t follow Inuyasha 1 to 1.

The biggest change is that when the kikiyo character died and burned with the jewel the soul in the jewel did reincarnate into a person and didn’t stick with the priestess. So Vivi is the reincarnation of the priestess, and Lewis is the reincarnation of the jewel itself. He IS the jewel.

Lewis is pulled into the past by a demon who can sense the jewel, and Vivi follows.

There they meet Arthur, who is pretty much Inuyasha (though we made a specific point that he wouldnt be as stupidly OP as inuyasha. This group is a TEAM not the Arthur show)

We havent hammered out exacts yet but the basic plot is that a demon (maybe shiro) tries to take Lewis’ soul since its the jewel. Vivi tries to rescue him and ends up accidentally shattering the jewel. So now Lewis’ soul is spread all over the past and he finds that because of that, he cant get home through the well. So until they can regather the jewel, hes stuck there.

So thats the plot basics. but i do have bits from the chat (editing out tangents we went on) So you can see how it developed (also we talked more about Mystery and Lance.)

I DREW MY GEMSONA…. i guess more like gem oc or whatever they call it tho??(i cant really imagine myself as a crystal gem lmfao) she kind of ended up looking plain though….

Anyway, she’s Moonstone, and her gem is located on her torso right below the chest. I designed her using circle and crescent shapes. Her weapon is a vietnamese dadao(so yeah if she was human she’d be vietnamese).

Just talk to me if you want something that’s not specifically listed here and we can discuss a price.
