Earned a Bachelor's in Fine Arts with a Digital Animation Major. I do like video games, especially platformers. The one thing that bugs me in recent video games is online multiplayer (its just you playing alone against a bunch of people you hardly know.)
For more information, leave a note if interested.
1. Do Not request anything I don't know.
There's a saying, "do what you know, research a little what you don't." If there's something I know nothing about, I will not do it; it's not just drawing or using my Toon Boom Puppets, but also the research I have to do to get it right.
For starters here's the subject matter I do know:
The Land Before Time, or any dinosaur related thing (They were here before the Brony fandom and will last after the fandom)
Godzilla or kaiju related thing
Still mastering the human form, so OC's are fine, but continue reading.
2. Have a clear idea of what you want me to do.
This is especially important for me as an animation artist. By commissioning, requesting, or getting an art trade from me, you are basically having your work done overseas (depending on where you live); the clearer the idea and the more detailed the idea, the better the quality. No one likes to go blind after all.
If you have the character you drew yourself or have a reference requested or commissioned, provide it as such; it can easily go a long way.
3. Art styles take a long time to master.
My current art style (which you can better see with my rough pencil drawings) lies in the middle of an abstract and realistic form. Personally, I want to master Don Bluth's art style or come close. If you ask me to do it in an art style like that of , , or s, you're better off getting a commission from them.
Absolutely under no circumstance do you ask me to draw in the anime's style. Chibi is okay though for the sake of being cute (e.g. daydreams, exaggeration etc.).
4. No NSFW material; I will be the final judge if the art is deemed too much.
5. Time might Equal Money.
If it's gonna take me away from my personal projects for a while, I will have to establish a payroll in the form of a PayPal account, and how much you want me to do will be priced accordingly.
[b]6. If it looks and sounds like a duck, I won't paint it.[/b]
What I'm saying is, don't ask me to paint a "claimed" design too similar to an official one (e.g. a differently painted Sunset Shimmer or a Godzilla with a differently painted arm). That is just plagiarism and very unprofessional of you the client.
[b]7. If you the client wishes to upload the art piece yourself, credit and promotion are absolutely mandatory.[/b]
Not many artists spend time and energy doing this for own health. Giving credit and linking back to me here or to my Deviantart profile will allow more clients to see what I've done in the past, take an interest, and therefore I could earn more money.
I am happy to work with you as long as I find it won't inconvenience me.
