Colored Banner WIP

Yeah, the banner in my journal. It looks much better colored, and I may or may not end up shading it due to time that I have left over.

Speaking of time, I have now started commissions of my work. Why? Because Application deadline for the college I want to attend is in October, and I want to have the funds neccissary to go. So, if anyone's interested, they're open, right now right here: [link]

Even if you don't have the money or don't want to buy a commission, please tell other people. My range of people that I reach on DA only goes so far, but I really need all of your help to reach a wide range of people so that MAYBE I won't have to go and get a second job this summer and not provide beautiful artness for you watchers.

In fact, those who broadcast to their watchers or wherever you hang out on the internet most (you need to send me a link via note to the page you did this on) will get a cameo in the 666 comic. No joke, you will have an image of your face for at least one panel in the comic.

Can you tell how desperate I am to not take out a student loan? No? Well for those who refer five or more people to me (that's five people coming to me and buying a commission and them telling me that you referred them) I will make an ID for you (as in a DA ID for you with you featured as a character in my style of drawing) Is that a big enough incentive?

No? Well though who refer ten or more get an ID and basic commission (CG bust shot of a character, simple background)

And just to note, my commissions are not just character commissions. Anyone remember Obsidian Mirror? I do paintings like that still :) In fact, once my pieces come back from the AP exam, I'm thinking of selling a few of them off (the actual paintings, not prints of them) to those who wish to purchase them.

Sales for actual pieces will be listed at the bottom of the commissions journal as soon as I can find all the ones I'm selling. I believe that is it. Again, I beg your assistance and thank you for taking the time to read this.

No problem. You are an amazin' artist, darlin'. Course I want to help. And, forgive me if someone has already babbled your ears off about this already, but try looking into scholarships. Specifically art, but you should also look at scholoarships for another subjects your good at. </babble>

Luffs. :love:

lol, yeah I've been told and I am planning on it. To tell the truth I don't plan on reaping very much at all from commissions, but every little bit counts.

Not bad. Nice color pallet so far. I think you have a nice eye for color and it does show in your work. Keep up the hard work. :D

What about scholarships and stuff? Couldn't you get a full one?

I like teh banner, btw. ^^
ftepainting's avatar
I don't think so. I may get one, depending on how well I can do in school this last month. *crosses fingers* And I'm looking for other scholarships to apply for because I know there's lots of money in that. But really, I still need to do what I can now so I'm not totally dependant on getting free money for essays and stuff. I've been wanting to set up commissions for some time now actually. But now I have a reason too.
Vieve-Kethrun's avatar
Ahh. Ok. That kinda sucks. But it'd be good if you did get a lot of them, and its good that you're starting up commissions.

Unfortunatly, I don't have money, and i don't know many ppl on this site who do either. >x<;;;; I'm sorry.
ftepainting's avatar
yeah I know. But alot of people who aren't registered on the site look for artists to hire. One guy contacted me about T-shirt designs, but we're still working out the icky details. And my cousin commissioned me to do a piece of her kids :D I feel a little bad doing it for money, but she insisted...

So yeah, even if people don't have money, it's good to put it out there, and if you meet people in real likfe who are interested in commissioning you, you can always refer them to your site, so you don't have to explain the same thing a whole bunch of times.

hey we both cut our hair ....CREEEEEPY
since we both were obsessed with our long hair XD
ftepainting's avatar
That is kinda creepy

I still like long hair. A lot. But I think a breather from obsession is good every once in a while :) It'll always grow back and then I can do all kinds of crazy stuff with it!
