Howdy, partners! Last night (in my desperation for money with which to fund my RNG box addiction), I had the brilliant idea to offer a service to the community that I think everyone can appreciate, and a decent amount of you can afford: Character commissions for in-game gold! Let's check out the goods:
This is the cheapest tier, because it's the easiest to make. As the header says, they're basically chibis, which will be done with flat colors and in a small sticker-size layout. It takes me about an hour or two (depending on complexity) to make one of these.
Here's where the complexity - and the price - begin to rise. These take me 3 or 4 hours to make, and I try to keep them as simply colored and sketched as I can, for my sanity alone.
Here it is. The death of me. These things are very hard because outfits in ArcheAge are very hard and also art itself is very hard. Can be anywhere from 4 to 7 hours, depending on if someone wants me to draw plate armor (you bastards).
Some characters and outfits are just easier to draw than others, and I know how it feels to want something badly and not have the money to pay for it. Prices will never go above what's listed here.
Now for some handy-dandy notes on my services:
I can't draw without some kinda reference image. Whether it's online or from the game, you gotta give me something to work with.
I will personalize characters and outfits based on customer requests and, if allowed, my own interpretation of your character's appearance.
If you're dissatisfied with your commission, 50% of your gold can be refunded. But if I see you using it everywhere on the site even though you claim you hate it and take your money back, just know that I'm gonna be side-eyeing you soooooo hard.
Prices are based on the cost of APEX, so a month from now, they could be priced completely different.
If you come to me saying you don't have the money, but still want a picture, we MIGHT be able to discuss some other form of trade. This is very unlikely, but I won't rule out the possibility.
I don't draw anything that isn't safe for work, so don't even ask.
I reserve the right to deny my service to anyone, for any reason.
The way transactions will work is that I'll send you a sketch of what I've got in mind about halfway through the picture, and in return, you'll give 200g if you're getting a bust, and 300g if you're getting a full. Chibi pictures take so little time, and I'd need to take so little money, there basically isn't any point to doing all that for them. From there, I'll finish the picture, and you'll give me the rest of the money before I send you the finished piece over this site - or through email/tumblr/deviantArt/telegram/whatever you want me to send it through.
If you are interested, or want to ask more questions, either post on this thread, or send me a private message through Skype (@zeldaluvr1) or the site! Can't wait to do business with y'all!
Heey :)! This looks great! I should be able to afford at least a chibi version of my character and if I like it, I might go for something bigger (I know about the costume collector's passion X_X ).
Anyhow - are you going to PM me in here or do you just want to see my character in-game - or how do you determine what to draw her like? While Liandra is usually rather polite ICly, I am sure there are dozens of people from my past guild, who would tell you the opposite - so she can be very direct.
What she likes the most is her tailoring / alchemy / magic (she tries to combine those three) - so if you could throw in some fabrics into the visual or something like that, I'd be very happy.
Alright.. already wrote too much - looking forward :)!
P.s.: a friend an ex-guildie once drew Liandra in a vampire-fashion (due to the halloween costume) and while the style was similar to yours, I do believe it was not a perfect fit (even though it really looked nice). Well - hope to hear from you!
For reference pictures, I don't need much - a screen shot of the face is usually all the key features I need - but if there's a particular outfit you want her drawn in, I'll need either pictures or a name to look it up with. Usually anything worth noting gets put up in people's character profiles on the forums, which I always look at before drawing, just in case!
I don't know a whole lot about tailoring, and unfortunately the size of the chibi drawings doesn't quite lend itself to fine-tuned detail, but I promise nothing less than my best effort!
Such amazing artwork - Symphonia totally brought Lia's character aspects together in one single image. The detailed patterns on her clothes and the fabric, needle and thread as weapons meet exactly Lia's features. I like it very much and it definitely is worth every single gold coin I will be paying.
Patron's out again! Commission me and help me buy it back!
Also, this is your last chance to get commissions at these prices - with the cost of APEX rising, so, too, will the cost of my art! I'll be editing the post soon to reflect these changes, but until I do that, it'll still be as it's advertised. So hop on these deals while you can!
hey im back in the game!!! and better at art than ever before. also, more poor than i ever was before, since i sold all my earthly possessions before my long break from AA. so on that note, buy my drawings!!!
im going to edit the top post later but for right now, here are the current prices - based off of the going rate for APEX nowadays (damn back when i made this post it went for like 500g can you even believe it):
Chibi: 300g Bust: 750g Full: 1500g
just as before, mail or message me if youre interested in setting something up! prices can be quite flexible if we barter~
