I've always had an interest in cartoons and comics. I work for a living, but spend almost all of my free time drawing, either for one of my two webcomics, or for work you see here in the gallery. Though I don't have any illusions of being "professional" I do enjoy it and I keep working to improve.
Interests
So, I've had some things come up kinda suddenly that have put me in a bit of a bind financially, so I decided to open up commissions. For the record, I'm not counting on this to save me from my problems, I've actually got a few angles I'm going at here, but every little bit helps, right? Also, full disclosure, before this whole mess started, I was about to get a new Wacom tablet...like I had the money ready and everything, but stuff came up and it had to be put on hold, so I will freely admit that part of this is me wanting to get back to getting that wacom tablet. The one I have is so old, it's just a wacom tablet, no names or numbers added. :XD:
So, in other words, support me if you want to, but don't break your bank to help mine. I know we all have our troubles and I'm not expecting much from this as I don't have that many watchers. :nod:

If you're interested in commissioning me, please read the rest of this post carefully, as I'm putting in a lot of information you might need to know.

First thing's first - before you even consider this, there are some limitations on what I'll draw. "But Dragonsong," some hypothetical person somewhere might say, "if you want to get money, shouldn't you be willing to draw anything?" Probably yes, but there are some things I'm just not comfortable with and I'm also concerned with making sure you get your money's worth.
So I won't be drawing anything that's graphically violent (some violence is fine, just not gore) or graphically sexual. On the subject of the latter, I'm willing to give it a go drawing some PG romance scenes, but in complete honesty, it's not something I draw a lot and frankly I'm not that good at it. So while I'm willing to do it if that's what you want, I'm worried the results won't be worth it, so it might be best to steer clear of that too.
I think those are my only hangups, though if something more comes up, I'll add it to the post. Beyond that, fanart, fan characters and OC's are all on the table in pretty much any situation. :)

As for the pricing, that follows:
Sketch - $5 (each additional character +$5)
Inks - $15 (each additional character +$5)
Colors - $25 (each additional character +$5)
Shaded - $35 (each additional character +$10)
Full Illustration - $50 (each additional character +$10)

To see examples for what each of those amounts to, I used an old friend to make up an example sheet for it here.

I will require payment in advance, I'm afraid. (I was considering a few different options for payment, but they all ended up being too confusing, so we're just going simple.) I will be running more complicated pieces by you, though, to make sure it's what you want before it's finished.

Payment can be made via paypal. My email for that is dragonsong12@hotmail.com. If paypal doesn't work for you, message me, and we'll try to work it out.

Time may be a big factor in these. I have a fairly limited schedule between my job and two comics, so I may be fairly slow with them, particularly the more complicated they get. If I am running behind a reasonable time, though, I will keep you informed as to what's going on. I just wanted you aware that I probably won't be getting back to you with a picture the next day. ^^;

If there's anything else I forgot to add, let me know and I'll add it to the post. Please let me know if you're interested.

RvB? We're actually a bit behind. ^^; I think we've missed the last couple of episodes.

The one upside of that is you have a bit more to watch when you go back in, heh.

Slowly, I'm afraid. I've done some skecthes, but nothing I'm happy with so far. :(

The good news, though, is that a large part of my backlog was due to some extra content I needed to do for personal projects, and those are just about complete. (One will post on Monday and that'll only leave one more which is nearly finished.) So that'll free up some time for me to focus on other things.

I'm glad you messaged me about it, though. It was going to get done eventually regardless, but I'm happy you're still interested. I don't think the delay will be as long this time.

I see. Ya, I'm still interested in them. I came up with how the four should look so  Ido want to see them get done at some point.

Sketches? Mind if I see them? I know you said yo uweren't happy with them, but I would still like to see.

Sure! I'm replying from work right now, but when I get home tonight, I'll dig them out, scan them, and send them your way! :)

I think I may have said this before, but I saw you added me to your devwatch a while back and I wanted to thank you! :glomp: I'm also a fan of Twisted Mirrors!  Been reading it for a couple of years now - I can't wait to see more of the story in the future! :la:

Thanks so much! I'm so glad you've enjoyed it and I will do my best to keep it up! :D

I forget how I came across your DA, but I really love your drawing style and I'm excited to see what you'll come up with in the future! :nod:
