The Road to Commissioning Spoiler alert: Jessica actually broke out of the ropes canonically. Elsa wasn't there.As a youngling, I remember seeing a lot of fantastic #DiD art way back when and wondered if someone was going to draw my favorite gals in a certain way or that kind of position. I often dreamed of having some of my favorite artists pay homage to some of the more memorable DiD scenes of comic books and video games. I had a lot of urges to 'fix certain moments' in popular tv shows that lacked or just needed a small tweak. Me, being naive and oblivious about commissions, asked and praised a "certain" popular/talented artist and kindly asked. What I got in return was a degrading and humiliating words that I was a free loader and all "his" white knights followed after with their claims. Not my brightest moment. Some of My Commissions through the yearsSome time later, I 'sort-of' got the means to pay for a commission. I decided to contact that artist again through DA Notes and pitch my idea. Again, I was very naive and didn't know the ways pricing works so I gave (at the time) the highest dollar amount I could pay for a commission. Now keep in mind, I pitched all of this without references and only words! Also, hindsight, the price point I gave was laughable since the work I wanted was probably close to double especially with this artist's caliber. So what DiD I get in return? Silence and said artist posted a journal post about not wasting his time with 'requests'. Now I'm sure that the artist didn't make that journal post just because of me, but I have a feeling that I was part of that call out. He didn't tag anyone, but hey, he made that post not too long after my note so I'll just go off of that. Not all I commission are DiDs, ya know! Sure a lot of it are but I do have other passion!After that, I didn't really bother with trying out with commissioning again. I figured that I would never have the means and the mentality to be able to collaborate with talented artists and so I just had to depend one others. Depend as in... yes, free load/enjoy others' hard work. Around this time, I started going back to some silly DiD_Fic writing until eventually I found myself RP'ing. Now, I know at times I come off as someone who could care less about ICs--far from it. I actually adore OC characters--under the notion that the creators embrace what their OCs are for (ex: if you make a DiD OC, don't pretend that your OC is part of an epic Lord of the Ring Quest. They're fetish characters. That's why they're there). Saying all of that, I do have my own OCs that have followed me through the years; different names, different backgrounds, but all in all, same characters, different life time. My First CommissionWhen the RPs I was involved in were at its prime, I wanted to get some pictures of some of the characters that were involved. I wanted to give some 'life' and flesh out some of the moments that would make the writing even more satisfying so that's when I decided to try and see if I can get back to paying an artist to make it happen. But I had to find an artist that would fit both my funds and my taste so needless to say, the search began. Funny enough, around this time, during my search for the 'perfect artist', I learned the term "commission"--I know right? I technically didn't even know the term until now! At any rate, for some reason, I gravitated towards @Kachima; a very humble, talented, and erotic artist. And thus the commissioning endeavor started. I owe a lot to @Kachima for helping me during my first year of being a commissioner. He helped me learn about giving good descriptions and references, he helped me refine the way I would translate and direct my thoughts so that someone else can make it into 'reality'. And although Kachima and I don't collaborate anymore, I do still honor the time we did together in making some fabulous and sexy art. He was my stepping stone--after that, I just launched off into several projects and a myriad of collaborations. I went off and DiD my Rikku #DiDressphere project. Then there was my #Frozen_Skyrim project. A crossover fanfic that needed some cover arts because ... it does! And then there's my Terra in Distress project (haven't found a name for it yet though). Of course, over the years, I have had a ton of other things with my Commissioning endeavor. One-offs, DiD Polls, random ones, etc. Different artists, different styles, renders, comic panels, etc. And who knows what else in the future--well, I know since I have a HUGE list! All in all, it has been a fun hobby. I would like to put every artist in here that I have collaborated with but that would just make this a 20 min read that I'm sure no one is going to want to go through. But I have made every effort to ensure that they are linked and credited every time I post/repost their magnificent artwork in any of my social media! On a closing note, I would also like to thank some terrific commissioners/artists out there who, on their own, and perhaps in far more superior fashion, have made a remarkable dot within the DiD Community. These guys may/or may not get the recognition but at the very least, I want to make it known that even if commissioners DO NOT get the thank you from the casual Deviants (and even among the DiD Commissioners we lack some recognition), there is someone who appreciates their efforts--even if they(we) don't really do this for anyone but for ourselves. Here are some fantastic commissioners that y'all should pay attention to:@Aidenke - I've mentioned this guy time and time before. I don't really think I need to say a lot more but hell, he is a big inspiration for my commissioning hobby. I look at his gallery, his OCs, his love for certain niche FF characters... it's amazing. And if he doesn't commission, he inspires and steers some fantastic artists to do their stuff. Night Games, anyone?@Destroxxiv -This guy is full of erotic and wonderful ideas. He also commissions some pretty high caliber stuff and a lot of it are comic books panels--for those who are aware, these are some pretty pricey and hard work stuff! Destro is also responsible for a lot of fantastic one-offs that are probably in a lot of Deviants' fav folder. He has also done a lot of other commissions that aren't drawn/rendered art. He also happens to be one of my good buds in this outlet. Seriously, Des is awesome! @FourPieces -Wouldn't be a proper dedication if I didn't talk about this guy. Seriously, Fours has been part of my Commissioning journey for a bit now. While he commissions far less these days, I always have him to thank for helping me find some fantastic artists to work with. He also continued the Rikku #DiDressphere though the "DLC" series. When he's not commissioning, he's being generous and helping other Deviants with renditions of their OCs, which, I must say, is an amazing thing to do for one another. Seriously, this guy is awesome. @TheLingeringShadow / @WildCard4774 - Shadow is a Deviant I recently started having a rapport with. I genuinely respect this guy's commitment to commissioning and he has contributed to the the community far more than he lets it be known. ALSO, him and I are working on a series together called "13 Nights". It has begun! And yeah, he has a thing for Lightning and Aya Brea. A very cultured man to say the least! @KoU32 -I literally just "met" KoU some few months ago. Through the Discord Server I am in, I have been exposed to his commissioning endeavor, and dare I must say, this guy definitely has a vision and a certain theme that I do adore. His contribution to the community is something to adore and for any DiD lovers, his page is something worth checking out! Also, he collaborates with Aidenke and Shadow so that should say something about his caliber!@HelZART -This particular Deviant I actually don't have any interactions with but that doesn't mean that I don't respect the contribution he has given within the DiD community with his fantastic Superhero based OCs. They're amazing and to me, they're every bit of a pleasure and homage to some of comic books most well desired DiDs. Check out all of his contributions; truly wonderful things! At any rate, that's about it for this wonderful journal post. As a person who has accumulated somewhere around 370-ish of commissioned work (variants included), I think I can say that I am proud of where I am now. I have the means and the drive so I feel like my passion still has a lot to offer. I'm not alone in this endeavor so for those who are looking at pics and enjoying them, take a gander and see if the artist collaborated with someone who put their hard-earned money to bring delicious and amazing pictures to life. Trust me, we don't look for it, nor do we need it, but do keep in mind that some of these probably wouldn't have existed if it weren't for the commissioners. Until Next Time!

Spider Gwen-Vengeance:Chapter 4: EXECUTIONFor a few long seconds, nobody even dared to say a word, as Gwen, Janet and Connors were standing still, frozen over the revelation towards him that his former student is the masked webslinger. Janet and Gwen on the other hand were shocked because they never thought they would see him again, as both heroines thought he left New York and disappeared for good, but here he was, and accidentally learned about Gwen’s secret identity as Spider Woman. But the shock went away, as Connors’s words immediately began to ring in their heads. “What do you mean, there is no cure to the lizard mutagen?” asked Doctor Van Dyne as she looked at him with suspicion. She already knew the answer, but hoped to the last moment she would be wrong. “It means that there is NO cure. Once the lizard mutagen bonds with the victim’s DNA, the bond is permanent”“And how could someone create this serum? The only person who knows how to do it is long dead!” asked Janet as several questions went through her head at hundreds of miles per hour, but she began to see that Gwen was already getting angry, as she knew the next thing that will come out of Connors’s mouth will confirm her suspicions.“Because… I created this serum. This evil version of Peter forced me to recreate it back when the Outbreak was in full swing, right before you came to me the first time” replied Connors with fear in his voice, knowing Gwen’s reaction to this revelation. Immediately, a thick line of black webbing overwhelmed him, as he was pulled towards Gwen, she was gritting her sharp teeth while all her hate and anger made her blood boil and the symbiote slowly swirl on her shoulders.“Why... Just…Why?” these were the only words Gwen could say, as she was barely able to speak due to all the anger she was feeling, Also, the webbing was beginning to tighten around Connors’s neck, slowly strangling him.“I had to do it…. He killed my former assistant… consumed her in front of me. What options did I had?” “Have a spine…” replied Gwen with a deep growl as she was tightening the webbing, not caring that she will kill him, but was quickly brought back to her senses when Janet cut the line of web with her Wasp Stings, freeing Connors just as he was about to pass out due to the lack of oxygen.“Strangling him won’t help, we need to work together to solve this situation before innocent people get hurt or killed!” said Janet as she was helping Connors get back on his feet “… Fine, and for your own sake Connors… you better come up with a solution, or you will wish that bastard had absorbed you” said Gwen as she went outside the lab, kicking the door in anger.Several hours passed as Gwen was waiting outside the lab while Janet and Connors were having several discussions and plans on what to do next. For everyone’s safety, she was asked to wait outside so she wouldn’t have another fit of rage and break something on accident. Gwen could only stay near the closed door and hear some muffled words of Janet and Connors’s conversation, but she couldn’t understand anything, as they were talking in scientific terms, the kind of jargon talk that you would need a degree in order to understand half of the conversation. As she was listening, she could deduct from the tone of both Curt and Janet that things weren’t good, as she could hear them coming to an ominous conclusion, one that she will learn soon. After what seemed like an eternity, the door to Janet’s lab opened as both scientists walked out with what looked like a syringe filled with a clear liquid. Both looked a bit tired and also had serious looks on their faces, a sign that the news wasn’t good, but Gwen held her hopes until the end.“What is this? Is this the cure?” asked Gwen as she was pointing toward the syringe in Janet’s hand.“No. Is something that will put Marc to sleep” replied Janet with visible sadness in her voice, amplifying Gwen’s confusion. “What you mean? To sleep long enough to be transported here so we can cure him?”“No…” replied Janet, this time nearly choking on her own words “… to put him to sleep… permanently. This serum will euthanize him in a humane way, quick and painless.”“WHAT??!! No, no, no, you must be joking, is his plan right? He’s come up with this! He’s the reason for all of this!!!” screamed Gwen as she was pointing towards Connors as she was getting more and more agitated and scared about the idea of killing Specter with the syringe. “Curt, please leave us a few minutes alone” said Janet as she took Gwen back into the lab “Gwen, we tried everything, any theory, any possibility, but the reality is that Specter cannot be saved. The serum made him a monster forever and is a matter of time until he will kill someone. Is best if we end his suffering and put him down humanely before a tragedy happens.”“No… please Janet… we cannot do this. He is our friend! He… he lost everything except his son… we can’t do this to him!” replied Gwen with tears in her eyes as he was about to start crying “…please…”“Gwen, I understand you, but it has to be done” replied Janet as she was placing her hand on Gwen’s shoulder “Sometimes we cannot save everyone and we have to make hard decisions and sacrifices, even if it hurts” at this point, she lowered her head, as even she felt the sadness creeping upon her as she was talking to Gwen “look, if you cannot do it, that is fine. I will do it. You can stay here and wait. It will be painless and quick, I promise, he won’t suffer.” As Janet placed her helmet on her head, donning her Wasp identity and was preparing to exit the lab, Gwen stopped her and took the syringe. “I’ll do it…” she said, then headed towards the exit and activated the symbiote that began covering her body, except her head. Just as she was exiting the lab, she saw Connors at her left side. She then stopped and looked at him, as tears were rolling down her cheeks.“No words can describe how much I hate you for this” said Gwen as she was almost beginning to sob “When this is over, I don’t want to see you, I don’t want to know nothing about you. I want to forget that you ever existed… ” Afterwards, the symbiote covered her face and recreated her hood, donning her Spider Woman identity once again. She then left the mansion, leaving a broken Connors behind, as he stood still with his head lowered, not moving at all. Minutes later, Spider Woman found herself wandering the vast network of Manhattan’s sewer system after following the beast’s trail of rampage. Arriving at the main junction, she began to cover the every incoming sewer pipe with webbing and she also created several tripwires that would alert her if any of her traps goes off and captures Specter. Her webbing was stronger than before thanks to the symbiote in her now merged with her body, which also combined with the fiber substance inside her webshooters. When she was done the inside of the sewer system looked like something out of a nightmare. In the main junction was a huge web which was connected to all the other webbing in the sewers. This was where Spider-Woman was located and she rested herself on the web and began to wait, like a fisher waiting for its capture. To her this was the ideal place to be so that she could detect anyone approaching.Hours passed as Spider Woman was waiting patiently, several thoughts went through her head, all related to what she will do once Specter will be caught in her webbing and what will happen after her mission is complete. She knew that nobody in her entourage will ever forgive her after Specter is dead and they would be right. She wouldn’t forgive herself too. He was also thinking about Daniel and how this will impact his life. As these thoughts were racing in her head, she was standing still, trying not to make a move. She was confident that her traps will catch and immobilize Marc so she could finish the job quick and painless. At some point she thought moving to a different junction and try again, but her instinct told her to stay and wait a little longer. Suddenly, one of the tripwires started to vibrate, indicating someone or something was approaching. Pulling out the syringe from the pocket strapped to her thigh, Spider Woman was preparing for the heartbreaking moment when she will have to put down her friend for good. The tension was reaching impossible levels as the thin line of webbing began to vibrate even more until it snapped, triggering the trap at the other end. Suddenly, a loud shriek echoed through the sewer system, a clear sign that she caught Lizard Specter in her webbing. Walking slowly through the sewer towards her capture, Spider Woman felt her heart racing as she was getting closer and closer towards Specter. Her spider sense constantly warned her of danger as she was walking through the large pipe, until she saw the beast entrapped in her webbing, desperately trying to get out. “It’s ok, I know deep inside you are scared. But your suffering will end soon, I promise.” said Spider Woman with as much calm as possible. She was trying to keep herself from having a complete breakdown as she approached her fallen friend in order to inject the lethal serum in him. However, her spider sense began to warn her even more of danger the closer she got to Specter. Suddenly, the Lizard struggled even further and managed to break the webs that restrained him, then grabbed Spider Women by the throat and threw her with enough force that she went through the ceiling of the sewer pipe and end up on the ground of a museum. Looking around after regaining consciousness, she immediately recognized the room as being part of the New York Museum, as she went there a few times before with Peter, just days before his death. The trip down memory lane was cut short as Specter emerged from the hole in the ground, focused on catching Spider Woman and killing her. On instinct, Spider Woman immediately leapt in the air and stuck to the ceiling, avoiding being sliced up by the Lizard’s claws. She was trying to avoid a fight and wanted to put him down quick and without any more suffering, but it seems the Lizard won’t make her mission easy. One thing that Spider Woman had to keep her eye on was that she didn’t seriously damage any of the priceless artifacts that were all around her. But these thoughts were interrupted when she had to dodge away from a clawed hand that came her way. The Lizard was faster than she would like and if not for her own speed and agility, she would have been sliced opened by now.For the next several minutes, Spider Woman continued to leap and dodge in order to stay away from the attacks of the Lizard. However, after one attack he was able to swing his tail and strike the superheroine in her side. This knocked the wind out of her and sent her flying to the ground. The pain that she felt went straight through her body, sending the webslinger several feet backwards “Aghh… damn it...” standing up with difficulties and feeling that some of her ribs might got broken, she looked up noticing that she was now in the Jurassic exhibition.It was not the Lizard that she could see but instead the fossilized skeleton of what looked to be a Tyrannosaurus Rex. If she had time to read the sign, she would have learned that this wasn’t the legendary dinosaur but a similarly large predator from the Mesozoic. Instead she had to dodge out of the way of another attack as she rolled onto her feet. Quickly she darted forward and struck the Lizard square in the face. Even with her strength enhanced by the symbiote, it didn’t seem to affect her opponent all that much, the thick scales in his body were a powerful armor that could absorb her strikes.“Let’s change tactics” said Spider Woman as she started to shoot some web lines at the Lizard’s feet, taking him by surprise as she pulled him straight against the ground, using the momentum and leaping over the Lizard and landing behind him. She then used her symbiote suit to attach a couple of strands of a black webbing that quickly attached itself to him. Using all of her might, she pulled and sent him flying into the air and he crashed against the wall with a great amount of force cracking the concrete wall.Seeing her opportunity, she quickly went over to the Lizard and tried to inject the serum into his body. Unfortunately, before she could succeed, she felt a strong kick to her chest that sent her flying into the dinosaur skeleton just behind her. The skeleton crumbled as she slammed into it and went falling to the ground. The force was enough for her to drop the serum and was close to losing consciousness. Thankfully, she was aware enough to see the upper jaw of the dinosaur came falling down towards her. On instinct she was able to roll out of the way as it came crashing down to the ground. If she had been half a second slower, it would have fallen on top of her and its shark like teeth would have pierced into her body.Dust flew up into the air and Spider Woman decided to retreat for a moment so that she could recover and try a different approach. “I.. ughh… I should have punched him a few times…” said Spider Woman as she coughed from the dust and held her chest, feeling how her bones were broken due to the impact. While healing, she immediately ran away, retreating to a hideout in order to catch her breath and recover. Immediately she found herself in what looked to be some kind of Egyptian exhibition. There were flame torches on the wall and a lot of artifacts around including gold that was recovered from the tombs of pharaohs and even a couple of beautifully decorated coffins.As she was hiding from the Lizard in order to catch her breath, Spider Woman noticed that the symbiote didn’t react well when near the torches. It was like fire was the parasite’s weakness as it made her feel weaker and tired, but she was unable to move to a better hiding spot, as the Lizard entered the room and began tasting the air with its tongue in an effort to find her. As Spider Woman was trying to stay still and avoid detection, something at her right caught her eye. It was a fire extinguisher, one filled with cold foam that she could use against Specter, since Lizards don’t cope well with extreme cold. As she was trying to slowly reach the canister, her spider sense warned her of imminent danger. Turning around, she saw the Lizard pouncing at her direction with its mouth open, ready to bite her head off.“Lunch time, and I am the main course” said Spider Woman before leaping into the air and out of Specter’s path. Sadly for her, this also made her drop the extinguisher, as the canister fell on the ground and began spraying cold foam at random before emptying itself. Some of it landed on Specter’s arms, causing him to shriek in pain, but it wasn’t enough defeat him, as he quickly recovered and turned around, more enraged then before. As the monstrous Lizard turned around, its tail knocked some of the torches off its mounts and landed near some fabric curtains, setting them alight. The fire quickly began to spread from curtain to curtain, also igniting anything that was flammable, lighting up the entire area. For her, this was the worst case scenario, as the extreme heat from the fire began taking its toll. The symbiote covering her body began to slowly swirl and react to the fire and heat, it was clearly it didn’t liked the current environment, but it was also making Spider Woman feel weak and exhausted. Eventually, she felt like her own skin was boiling as the fire got closer and closer. At some point, the symbiote was ready to separate itself from its host just to escape the approaching fire and increasing heat. The odds were now against her and she knew it very well. “Can’t fight… fire… all over…” Spider Woman could barely speak or even stand on her feet as the fire got more and more intense, burning everything in its path. Specter on the other hand was unaffected, as his lizard form could cope with the intense heat, as it was a cold blooded animal. But before he could pounce and finish off his opponent, he felt sharp pain in several areas of his body. Turned out Janet came after Spider Woman and arrived just in time to save her ally again from a certain death. After distracting the Lizard long enough, she began to fire her blasters at the nozzles in the ceiling, engaging the fire alarm and activating the extinguishing system. Suddenly, the entire room began to be covered in a sub-zero like foam that began putting out the fire without causing further damage to any of the surviving artifacts. This foam also began affecting the Lizard as the creature began to kneel and feel extremely weakened from the intense cold. To make sure he is subdued, Spider Woman used as much webbing as possible to restrain him, immobilizing him for good.“Are you ready?” asked Janet as she returned to her normal size and landed next to Spider Woman, handing her the serum she recovered from the debris. Without answering, Spider Woman took the syringe and began to slowly walk towards her restrained friend. Every step she made was extremely painful to her as she knew she was getting closer and closer to killing another person she cared. As she was nearing Specter, she was beginning to have an emotional breakdown and her eyes began to slowly fill with tears as she got next to Marc, who was still struggling to break the webs but to no avail. “Marc, I know you’re in there… I want you to know… I’m sorry. Sorry for everything. Please forgive me” and with one final scream, Spider Woman lifted the syringe and impaled the needle straight into the Lizard’s back, causing him to roar in pain, as the lethal serum began to be injected into his body....
