Custom ponies

I base my commissions off of sizes, and amount of detail. I keep a general price range for the size of the custom pony, but the amount of detail the design requires, will determine the price.
I usually am able to look at a design and get a feel for the price, or at times I don't get a feel for the price until after I start working on the custom.

~~~~~Payment methods accepted~~~~~
I have PayPal, and if you are a U.S. resident, you can send me money orders or cashier checks.
I also accept cash safely concealed in an envelope (at customer's expense).  


~~~~~Shipping~~~~~
For international packages/packages with multiple customs; I'll ready the package, and take to the p.o. to get an exact shipping quote, give the quote to the customer, then they pay that much before I ship.

Free shipping usually occurs on sales of 1 custom, if the person lives pretty close to my residential state. (Usually within the U.S.)
Additional shipping charges for over-seas transactions are applied no matter how many customs are ordered. 

-------------------------------------------------------
Payment guidelines

Orders that are $50.00 or less need to be done in 1 payment
Orders that are over $50.00 can have a payment plan. 
No holds allowed anymore that are below half the cost of the custom (if it's a premade sale custom)
There can be some exceptions, you'll just have to ask. 

----Request guidelines----
I require at least partial payment upfront for supplies before starting on a commission. This prevents me from having to keep unwanted customs cluttering my shelves for months on end, and makes it so costs don't come out of my pocket~
If occasion arises where I complete a commissioned custom before payment, I'll only hold it for 2-3 months before putting it up for sale (unless it's someone else's original design.)


Excuses for non-payments- this is the internet, nothing anyone tells me can be validly proven to be true. Unless you can prove anything to be true, I'm not obligated to take it into consideration for our transaction; the best I can do is try to be understanding, considerate, while sticking to these guidelines.

REFUNDS- I will not issue refunds. If you commission a piece and only pay part of the payment then don't pay the rest after 4 months, I will put it up for sale and not refund the deposit since you took up my time and materials to do something you did not follow through on paying.
NO REFUNDS ON DEPOSITS OR FIRST PAYMENTS


For sales, no holds accepted.

No refunds if a custom is damaged in your possession after it has arrived safely to you.

Very pretty! Definitely do-able~

If you have a specific pony base in mind you'd like me to make the design from, let me know~

Here's some recommendations I have from my supply, this first one is a generation 4 princess pose which I feel would suit the character perfectly. A custom from this pose would cost about $65.00.

If you'd prefer a older generation pony base, I also have g3's & g3.5's~ A custom from the regular adult g3 (left pink pony) would cost about $75.00. Custom from the g3.5 (on the right) would be about $55.00.

I could start work when payment comes in, and you could expect it done approximately within a few days.

Would you ever try a Nyan Cat Commission?
Wat size would you recommend for that?
Reply
:iconlightningsilver-mana:
LightningSilver-Mana Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I've always dreamt of making a poptart cat farting a rainbow custom! That needs to exist. Hard.

For that, I'd decapitate, obliterate and disassemble an entire pony; cut the legs and head off and use only those and use a rectangular flat material for the toaster tart... I could use just about any kind of small/baby sized pony...

A rough estimate I can give, is $30.00.

Don't be daunted by my "closed commission status"; it's mostly a lie. XD But not really, because I'm using it so I don't end up biting off work than I can chew... but after about 2 months from now I'll be squeezing people in that pay upfront. ;)

How long is the turnaround time for commissions? Are the prioritized by complexity/first come-first served/payment or anything like that?

Also, is there any sort of discount for pony designs you have previously done?

I'm very interested in commissioning one as a gift, but want to be sure of exactly what I'm getting into and what to expect : )
Reply
:iconlightningsilver-mana:
LightningSilver-Mana Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
These are some good questions, and I'm more than happy to answer. :)

As far as "turnaround", (not sure what you mean by that; correct me if I'm guessing wrong here) I don't start making anything unless I get at least partial payment upfront, because I've been left with "commissioned" non-paid customs cluttering my shelves. :( So if someone asks or inquires about a commission then I don't hear back from them or they just don't pay, then I don't make the custom and I'm not out costs of materials or time. ^^; So customers can pretty much turnaround whenever they want, as long as the custom isn't paid.

I've already went through my for sales folder a couple times and knocked down prices off older creations, so everything in my for sales folder is pretty much pre-discounted!

I work on a first-pay first serve basis, as my priority guideline. If I have a list of people who paid pretty close to the same time, I update a journal with a list of the customers, who paid first, and who's will be made first, and who's next in line. On average, I get 1 custom done per week, some times 2 a week if the designs aren't that complex. :nod:

Next paycheck, I'll see if I can't spare the money and think of something. $10 shouldn't put us back too far, and it'll help you out a little bit.

I was originally thinking a final fantasy X Lulu would work perfectly for that pose (not sure if you like that character, or not...) but I never actually made her out of it, because I already have a "trading arts" figurine where she's laying down. XD

That's just an idea/suggestion... other than that, it'd be awesome if you thought of something to make from it! That would be a fun commission.

Other than that, random sales are popping up, so don't feel too obligated to help me out! Selling my stuff isn't the main reason I'm here. :) I mostly only updated this journal for that new rule... >_____>

:iconcelestiania:
Celestiania Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010
Lol, well, Lulu's the only character I can stand from FFX (though she loses that quickly with the whole, "OMGthebabykickedthoughI'minthatsamecorsetfrombefore" in X-2). Not quite sure yet. ><

I'll definitely be thinkin' though! Lulu is an option.

And it's not a worry, I'm happy to help ^-^

Oh I know! When Rikku was feeling that baby kick, I was like "omfg, they could have AT LEAST TRIED to make her belly look larger..." but that's video games for ya. Even preggo ladies can still look like porn stars. |D (In reference to the corset and the boobs...)
Reply
:iconcelestiania:
Celestiania Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010
I think the reason the baby kicked was to try to tell her "GET THIS F***ING THING OFF SO I CAN BREATHE!" >.> <.< And yes, I agreeeeee entirely. Her boobs upset me most. I always told people the reason she didn't topple over onto her face was because the weight of the train of her dress anchored her down.
Reply
:iconlightningsilver-mana:
LightningSilver-Mana Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
lol! The weight of the belts on the train of her dress, more like it...

I've heard that cosplayers have extreme difficulty balancing her dress to even keep it up! o_____O Like the bust line won't stay up because of all the belts, the fur line, and the fact there's no straps supporting it... they really have to do some odd-ball engineering to get that sucker to even stay up. >________>
