Current Request Status:
:bulletgreen: Commissions: Open (but ask first)
:bulletyellow: Art Trades: Ask first
:bulletred: Requests: Currently closed, please see fav.me/d7tv49s for current requesting and details (Please keep requests to that journal entry, thanks!)


I am open to MLPFIM-style requests - they are free though I have no problem if you want to talk about any type of compensation (art trade, points, etc.) as well. Wink/Razz  (I will generalize prioritize those with compensation higher than others)

Example of past OC requests:

I can also do backgrounds and other more complex works like groups of three or more, or character reference sheets, but I prefer to only do these as commissions than requests due to time involved:


I have also figured out how to use the templates and guides created by the Desktop Pony Team on DA for creating the Desktop Ponies-style ponies, so I can help create those too, eg:

How to Request or Commission:

For requests, please refer to my current request thread (linked above) for instructions. Commissions and art trades should be brought to me in notes.

Assuming you want an OC character, I will need all character references, or something that I can work from to make the character (even something simple like from General Zoi's OC creator to specific color and hair/mane style would be good. 

I do need posing suggestions if you want a specific pose.  If you don't, I will try to work a generally nice standing pose that works for most characters. If you have a specific pose image in mind, please make sure to link it.

I will always send you final versions in notes to get your okay before posting.  Once okay'd, I will publish a high resolution image and SVG to my account unless you ask otherwise. If you would like watermarking please also let me know. I will license things as CC-BY-SA unless they are commissions or you ask otherwise. I can also provide any elements of the final vector separately if needed.

Pricing for Commissions:
My current pricing that I estimate for commissions is as follows:
- 100 pts per character (including any accessories, clothing, etc), assuming that the character is not complex. As a point of reference, I consider anything complex as going beyond any details the show has done, including if I have to extrapolate some ideas that aren't present in any references. This will be something to determine before I start work, so you'll know that . Additional detailing for such complex characters will be at least 50pt and up, depending on details.
- 100 pts for background elements or additional props. This will depend on how complex the background or prop is. A simple sky gradient with a cloud or two, or having the character sit on a simple stool, that's straight forward and I will not charge for that. 

I may ask for more if there is going to be some artistic aspects involved. For example, if you don't have a visual reference for your character but have described them in text, I may ask for a few more points to deal with the the artistic cycle to refine this character to your liking.   

I will state the price for commissions before starting them. Most of the time I will only ask for the points after the commission completed to your satisfaction, but I leave myself the right to possibly ask for some upfront for complex works (I've yet to do so).

Turnaround Time:
Vectoring is not my full time job. I will try to limit my requests and commissions to a load level I feel I can handle with my real life duties.  I am aiming to keep requests and commissions completed within about 2 weeks of the request, but this is not an absolute. I can try to help with any "rush" things, but plesae make this clear when asking.
