Commissions!

Postby Quagga » Fri Jun 28, 2013 2:37 pm

Information and Examples
(You can skip a bit - the links are examples, and the Rules/Instructions
are all I need to a commission request. I'm SO SORRY I talk too much!)

I'm looking into trying to do commissions again. I hope to eventually
make money off of it, but for now it's entirely free. I'd prefer to
practice first, to get the hang of interacting and whatnot. So!

I use GIMP. My strongly preferred digital style is pixel art. I'm simply
the most familiar with it, and it's the easiest and most fun for me.
Sorry if I can't do it in your own preferred style. And while they're all
sort of MY collective style, each image still has its own unique little
style-twist to it.

I mostly draw animals and nature. Modern, man-made objects or
scenes I still have to practice, definitely, but I won't outright condemn
them. The Anime-oriented style is also not something I'm familiar with,
so any requested characters of that style might turn out rather different
than you might prefer.

I can draw a single focus, pictures without a background. (Not a proper
term, but I don't always know terms, sorry) Although the examples given
MAY have a little excess space that I wouldn't normally allow on a
finished picture.
Mr. Oddity, Turkeys, Mieerka, Titmouse, llama,

I can also draw scenes, or added backgrounds.
Bungon, Lechwe, Squickle

Please Note: NONE of the above images are free to use. Do NOT use them. They
are my property, and took time. They are only being used as examples
of my work.


The extent of detail is entirely up to you. However, drawing detailed
and realistic grass is an excessive pain, and I might not be able to
always do it quite so perfectly as you may prefer.

So feel free to request absolutely anything, but forgive me if I can't quite manage
to the extent that you see it in your head. I will do my best though -
I get practice from it, so of course I will do what I can.

The rambling introduction aside...

Rules and Instructions to a commission:
If you want a commission, simply post below with as much information
that you can give. References are encouraged.

Please try to include:
Species/breed (or otherwise, a detailed description of your made-up critter),
positions, markings, scenery and the background (if desired), lighting and
shading (if desired), and the image size (exact or general).

Please note, "if desired" isn't quite a yes/no question. If you don't want it, then
just say no. If you do, try to detail that as much as possible, as well.

If you NEED a form...
Code: Select all
Species/breed:
Appearance:
Position:
Scenery/Background:
Lighting/Shading:
Image size:

Feel free to include anything extra you see fit.
No such thing as too much, don't worry.


an example...
Code: Select all
Species/breed: Unicorn
Appearance: Black, white star and horn
Position: Rearing
Scenery/Background: Midnight, grassy hill/or up to you
Lighting/Shading: Up to you
Image size: Up to you

Nothing Extra


If you want to leave anything up to me to decide, such as the shading
or background or size, please say so. I can't read minds, I really need
you to tell me what you want. In few cases you might be able to allow
the appearance up to me, but that's entirely uncommon... or in the case
of just wanting something very generic, like an elephant, and not a
specific character.

Feel free to throw in little requests, like if you want an image consisted of
specific colors, or any other little ideas you have. If anything is confusing
or conflicting, feel free to ask me - and likewise, I'll ask you. And if you
want anything changed, feel free to say. It's for you.

Just understand that it takes time for me to finish something. Sometimes
it will be quick and easy, and sometimes... not so much. I'll also serve in the
order of posts: first person, second person, and so on. I won't go out of order.

And DON'T remove my copyright, mllerose, from the image. Give me credit as
it's due. I did put time into your image, and it's even free. Please, I would
deserve at least the credit...

(Mllerose is a clever little signature that's dear to me. M-L-E = Emily, Emily Rose
is my first and middle name. Mlle is "mademoiselle," the French for Miss, and I'm
fond of French. So it's sort of combining my name and my fondness of French.)

... and if you have any suggestions in general... Like how to summarize better...
lol Feel free to give that too. Won't take offense to anything.

Species/breed: Maned wolf
Appearance: (Pmed, the picture is just a reference to his colors, I don't want him to be anthro'd)
Position: Make him look handsome... handsome indeed. Maybe a handsome smile/grin or something, it's all up to you. If you need a different position just let me know.
Scenery/Background: Anything besides in the sewers and underwater. Actually being underwater would give him that glorious wavy hair effect with his handsomeness. Just kidding, how about something grassy!
Lighting/Shading: Anyway you want it!
Image size: Nice and sizable. Whatever's comfortable to you.

I'm easy going, so no worries! He was originally a hyena in the photo, but I'd like him to be a maned wolf.
Let me know what you might be more comfortable with or something. (:

Are you allowed more than one picture, for I have two in mind? c:

Anyway, I'll just go with this for now.

Species/breed: Red fox.
Appearance: http://www.wild-life-rehab.com/Educatio ... _Adult.jpg
Position: Like this fox? http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4g1zutzM2NM/T ... ed-fox.jpg
Scenery/Background: Transparent, please. ^^
Lighting/Shading: Anyway you want! I'd like it to be as realistic as possible though. :wink:
Image size: Signature size, please.

If you have problems drawing it, I'll be fine doing another position!

Species/breed: Dragon/Nightfury
Appearance: Just like Toothless, only with both tail fins and a blue lily that looks like this, that is slightly glowing. I would like if she looked relaxed, but not smiling. She is alert, but not tense.
Position: It looks like this, only in the opposite direction, if you know what I mean. Like this (the fifth one down. :3). So the first image's posture, but the second image's direction.
Scenery/Background: I would like the background to be a light, calm forest. Sort of like this. I would also like her climbing a low, thick branch, but one that is not too steep.
Lighting/Shading: I would like it as realistic as it can get. x3 I know you are drawing an imaginary creature, so it may be difficult, but Google has SO many pictures, and I think YouTube has the whole movie, if not a short film of How to Train Your Dragon.
Image size: About this size. :3

Please don't feel overwhelmed! I can wait very, very patently, but if it isn't possible, please, tell me so! I am a very picky person, but whatever you give me is fine! Being I can't do ANYTHING like you....

Alex's done!

Sorry if the wait is a bit much... But I'm trying!

And how about... you can request a second picture after your first request is done? So it allows other people to make requests if they want, too.

Bad timing on my part. Recent family events are getting a bit distracting, so it might take a bit more time than even I would prefer to finish some commissions. I definitely won't stop entirely! But I apologize for the bad timing and potentially longer wait. :( I feel bad about it.

I'm sorry for my "disappearance" again. I'm having my own personal issues now, so I'm a lot more distracted from before...
I guess I'll stop taking commissions after I can finish the remaining requests. Maybe I'll just stick to adoptables over commissions, sounds easier for me because that's on my time with less of a demand. I'll have to figure that out...

But I'm sorry anyways. :/

Are we allowed two commissions? If so, here you go, I guess.
Species/breed: Lion.
Appearance: http://www.lioden.com/territory_lion.php?id=780557 My heir from another simulation game.
Position: Lying down, grooming himself.
Scenery/Background: Under a nice, shady tree, near a water hole.
Lighting/Shading: I never really got lighting and shading, so whatever you can work with, I guess.
Image size: 2000 pixels by 2000 pixels, if you please. If you cannot do this, please inform me, and I'll lower the pixel size.
