Beginning of May

Beginning of May--how long does a non-digital picture take? Since I'd have to factor in shipping time as well :)

I'm Taurian too :) My birthday is on 18th of May ^^

First- are you just wanting the character standing there in a basic pose? OR are you wanting a scene?

Hm...I was thinking more of a pose. What would the difference between the two be? (in case a cool scene comes to me)

Well, if I have to design a background, I also need to have her interacting with it, so a simple background may just be a colour wash / gradient / pattern. A complex background is also like those Art Nouveau designs. I think I'm doing the Character portraits around $15, but those are based on digital finishes cause most that buy them don't want to spend alot- they just want a visual referance of the character. This is for a static/mundane pose

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Here's a sort of example I did of a lineart. The final product will be coloured (I didn't get around to colouring this one as the DND campaign finished.) The theory is, I'll email a high res which you can print off. If you want an original, then it'd be a different set of pricing.

Urgh- complicated T.T

Arkillian, out of curiosity, why do you always spoiler-text your images?

Habit from other forums firstly (it's a courtesy thing to stop spam- the other ), but also cause the spoiler stuff is off topic. I don't do it to KQ or TSL fanart :) If I do it for TSL or KQ art here it's probably to not distract people.

Art etiquette basically.

Sorry- I realised that I didn't finish a sentance there cause I got distracted XD

"it's a courtesy thing to stop spam- the other forums I'm on don't auto expand spoiler tags so it's a tidier way of not cluttering up an image heavy thread.

Oh, also I think that you don't load the image since it's not viewable. I may be wrong with that.

No, it still loads, at least it does here. But it does make the thread look neater, which is cool.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

OK, so my friend isn't responding to me about how much I should charge for an A5 copic picture so I'm going to say $35USD including freight which is basically $30 USD + paypal taking their ticket and reimbursement for freight. I'll see how that goes for now. A5 isn't a huge piece of card though so the backgrounds are forced to not be complicated so it should all be good. I think that's fair  :-\ That's like... 1 or 2 people's worth of room or something.

Any takers? I could lower the price to $30USD if you want a monochrome (warm grey only) That saves me having to do colour choice XD
