Hey guys and gals!

I'll be at Momocon this weekend (from today to Sunday).  It's here in Atlanta, downtown at the Hilton hotel.  I'll be in the artists alley, so be sure to come on down and look for the scraggly beard!

My subscription to DA is about to run out and I definitely don't have the money to renew it right now.  Grrr!  I'll draw/ink/color one full-body character for the person who buys me a year subscription to DA.  Lemme know if you're interested!

Also, I have so many images I have posted on my tumblr that have not shown up here.  I really need to fix that!

Hey folks!

I've decided to take a quick round of commissions. Here are all of the details.

Commissions sept 2012 by DrewGreen


My cartoon style:

Bust - $55 or $50 per bust for multiple busts.

Full-body - $75 or $70 per character for multiple characters.

My painting method:

Bust - $75 or $70 per bust for multiple busts.

Full-body - $100 or $95 per character for multiple characters.



Each comes with a simple background, like a flat color with some texture or gradient if necessary. Detailed background prices can be discussed in our correspondence, should that be something you want.

I can draw caricatures of real people and animals, or I can draw your own original characters in my style, or I can draw whatever you want from whatever fandom is your thing. Nudity and voilence are fine by me.

I only accept payment through Paypal, to be sent after the sketch is complete (before I ink/color the image).

Contact me with reference photos or pictures, or descriptions, or whatever it is you want!

I look forward to hearing from you! My email is snailsvenuedrew@gmail.com (Deviantart notes are fine too, but we'll need to move to email because I'll need picture references from you and it's how I'll get the finished stuff to you, etc.).

Thanks!

PRINT GIVEAWAY!  READ BELOW!

Before you read, this is for this Tumblr post right here:  drew-green.tumblr.com/post/245… not simply copy and paste this text onto your tumblr and blog it.  If you choose to participate, PLEASE reblog that tumblr post!

Hey folks!

As many of you know, I'm currently running an Indiegogo campaign (very similar to Kickstarter) to raise money for the creation of second episode of The Super-Gay Adventures of Ross Boston, my webcomic.  The end goal is $5,000, and with about 10 days left, I am still short $2,731, so I'm not even quite halfway there yet!  That's where you guys come in to help.

SGARB Episode 2 poster by DrewGreen

There are quite a few perks available for donating various amounts to the campaign, and one of the higher-up perks is this 11x17", campaign-exclusive print.  Ordinarily, you'd have to donate at least $130 or more to get it (with a host of other really awesome stuff included), but by reblogging this post, you'll be entered in a random drawing to win the print!  The rules:

     -One winner will be chosen at random.

     -I will ship internationally, so it doesn't matter where you live.

     -You may reblog as many times as you like, thus increasing your chances of winning.

     -You MUST leave this text - with all links - intact and allow others the chance to reblog this post, too.  Otherwise, it kinda defeats the purpose.

     -You need to have your ask box open so I can get in touch with you in case you win.  (Alternately, if you have your email or a link to some other means of contacting you available on your tumblr, that's fine too.)

     -Likes are great, but only reblogs count as an entry into the contest.


So, get to rebloggin'!  And be sure to take a look at the campaign and consider donating.  Remember, every dollar counts, and I could really use your help with this!

Thanks!

Hey folks!

MY INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN IS LIVE AND READY FOR DONATIONS!  www.indiegogo.com/rossboston?a…

Help fund Episode 2 of my webcomic, "The Super-Gay Adventures of Ross Boston!"  You can facilitate faster, better updates by contributing!

Please help me out by taking a look (particularly at my awful, awful video) and consider donating.  If you're not able to donate, PLEASE reblog on tumblr:  drew-green.tumblr.com/post/232… , share the link on twitter or facebook or anywhere.  I would appreciate it!  It would be like whipped cream with a cherry on top!

For those not aware, Indiegogo works JUST LIKE Kickstarter.  It's a crowd-sourcing service for those looking to get a project up and running through donations from folks just like yourself.

Also, unrelated:  I changed my Deviantart name.  I am no longer Freakshow6 but instead, DrewGreen (my actual name).  I hope there's no confusion!

Thank you for reading!

Commissions are OPEN again!

(Be sure to click the images to see them better.)

It's that time again, folks.  Commissions are once again open!  The options and prices are listed below.

commissions nov2011 busts by DrewGreen

Option 1:  Character Bust
Description:  A shoulders-up (give or take, no lower than the elbow) image of a character.  Can be based on photos of yourself or someone you know, or on an existing character of your own creation or a character you like from something you enjoy.  Includes a solid-color background (white, black, and transparent count as solid colors, as well).  The bust can be encapsulated in a circle or it can simply fill the page, your choice.  A printable high-resolution image file is sent to you upon final approval.  (I traditionally do these 8 inches by 10 inches, but sizes are negotiable and should not change the price.)
Price:  $55  (Or, purchase 2 or more and each bust is only $50)

Commish Nov2011 full body by DrewGreen

Option 2:  Full-Body Character
Description:  A full-bodied image of a character.  Can be based on photos of yourself or someone you know, or on an existing character of your own creation or a character you like from something you enjoy.  Includes a solid-color background (white, black, and transparent count as solid colors, as well).  A printable high-resolution image file is sent to you upon final approval.  (I typically do these 11x15 inches or so, but sizes are negotiable and should not change the price.)
Price:  $75 (Or, purchase 2 or more and each character is only $70)

The Bobslist Adventure Team (Print) by DrewGreen

SPECIAL "SGARB" OPTION!  *New!*
Description:  A full-bodied or bust image of a character.  Can be based on photos of yourself or someone you know, an existing character of your own creation, or a character you like from something you know.  The difference here is that the style used is more cartoony, similar to that of my webcomic (which can be seen here:  www.supergayadventures.com ).  While distinguishing features will be taken into account, the likeness and anatomy are intentionally not as close, and the person or character being drawn is meant to look more cartoony than my usual "commission" style.  The person or character you want me to draw can be human or any species, mythological or otherwise, and includes a solid color background (white, black, and transparent count as solid colors as well).  A printable high-resolution image file is sent to you upon final approval.  I typically do these 11x15 inches or so (8"x10" for busts), but sizes are negotiable and should not change the price.
Because these are easier and more fun for me to do, the price is lower than that of my regular commission prices.
Price:
$65 for a full-body (or purchase 2 or more and each character is only $60)
$45 for a bust (or purchase 2 or more and each character is only $40)


For either option, if you are interested in a more detailed or locational background, we will discuss it in our correspondence.  The price may be different for each instance so I won't even ballpark it here.

When submitting commission inquiries, please be sure to include photo/picture reference of the person or thing you wish for me to draw.  The more images and the more angles, the better.

Payment is through Paypal ONLY.  You do not need a Paypal account to pay me with Paypal, but you do at least need a credit or debit card.

If you're interested in commissioning me, please email me at snailsvenuedrew@gmail.com (or note me right here on Deviantart) and we'll get the ball rolling!  And be sure to tell me where you found me, so I can keep track of where I'm getting the most business from.

Thanks,

UPDATE:  Wait, who bought the year subscription for me?  I know it says :iconfive50fivegirl: but the one she gifted me last year is about to run out and I think it's just displaying her name until it does run out.  Tell me who you are (via note) so I can draw something for you!  :D


Oh wow, my DA subscription ends in 3 weeks.

I'll draw you something nice if you buy me a year.  Anybody want a drawing of their OC or something?  :)

Lemme know.  We'll work something out.

Hey folks!

I'm preparing some images to be sold as prints and will be getting them printed tomorrow.  However, I'm curious to know what kinds of things you'd like to see me draw/paint with the intention of selling them as prints later.  What kinds of things do you buy?  It can be related to my webcomic htt://supergayadventures.com or not, I'm just looking for opinions and ideas.

Thanks!

Hey folks,

It has been a while since I posted a journal that was not simply an update about commissions.  But this is one i feel I need to write, as it addresses my lack of activity here on Deviantart.

At the beginning of this year, I signed up for an account over at Tumblr.  The sumbission process there is quick and easy, streamlined in stark contrast to Deviantart's disastrously messy pile of categories, repeat categories, and nonsensical organization.  The process of appreciating an image there is also quite easy: click on the heart.  Comments don't come as often and that's a shame, but its' great that people can show appreciation for and share my content with great ease.  I love tumblr and I'm not going to stop using it.

In the process of getting a Tumblr blog, I sort of abandoned Deviantart.  Between the general volume of comments and favorites that I couldn't respond to and the fact that I had found something much easier to use, I decided to focus less energy here, which in hindsight was sort of a silly idea.  Easy, fast, and simple is the name of the game at Tumblr but it leaves very little room for critique or the detailed sharing of thoughts and interests.  In some ways, the experience is dehumanized.  I actually really miss the comprehensive comments and message system of Deviantart.

And in some ways, I miss the community.  For all of the bitching the internet does about this place, for all of the criticism of how "amateur" it is, I genuinely feel I had amassed a group of dedicated, smart fans and I'm not convinced that all of them have jumped ship.  The sad part is, a lot has happened to me this year and I think many of you missed it.

Did you know I have a webcomic that has been running for about 6 months and is 30 pages in?  Did you know I've moved twice?  Did you know I'm on Twitter, too?  Some of you probably still haven't even figured out that I'm gay.  Recently, I got a boyfriend.  And roommates.  It's a lot of those large and little things that sort of went unnoticed.

I would like to dedicate more effort to Deviantart.  I can't promise that I'll do it, but I can try.  As much good as tumblr as been, I still technically have a larger audience over here and I'd like to cater to you guys, too.

In order to encourage me to use Deviantart, I've decided to start anew...sort of.  I have deleted all messages in my message box.  That includes comments, replies, favorites, new watchers, new images, journals, polls, etc.  I no longer have an enormous block of content I feel obligated to wade through, and that takes a huge load off of my shoulders.  So maybe I can do this after all.

Okay, so here's everything you need to find me elsewhere in case you're interested:

Of most importance, my webcomic:  supergayadventures.com/
Tumblr:  drew-green.tumblr.com/
Twitter:  twitter.com/#!/kingofsafari
My under-utilized blogger blog:  drew-green.blogspot.com/
I'm open for commissions, too:  freakshow6.deviantart.com/jour…

Alright folks, here we go.  Let's hope this works out!
