Don’t ask for free art if they got a sign that says ‘I do commissions’

     This is something you should avoid.  If the picture says ‘I’m open for commissions’ don’t straight out just ask for free art. In fact, don’t say ‘can you draw me ___?’ implying no payment. You’re kind of missing the point. 
     I know you guys don’t mean it, but I hope this post enlightens someone about this. We’re not being greedy. Okay, maybe we are. We need the money to pay for shit, like college loans, broken equipments, housing.
Do us a favor and ask for a commission instead of asking for free art. A day of skipped lunch is not going to kill you. 
     I know some people are willing to do it for free, but if you see this person say ‘i do commissions’ or own an online shop of any sort, or have a post that says ‘i’ll be at _____ convention selling art’, please, pay them something. A little goes a long way :)

Heather's Handy Dandy Guide to Legal Anime Streaming »

Who is this guide for?

Lately I’ve seen quite a few people that were streaming anime from shady illegal websites that were completely unaware they were illegal sites and wanted to find legal means to view anime. If you Google “anime streaming” or “Attack on Titan stream” “SOA stream” etc….

OMG I SOLD OUT GUYS

Not really. My content is being moved to teamfourstar.com due to my Blip account being taken down.

But that’s also something to complain about I’m sure!

Thanks for sticking with me through tough times.

I am very excited >:D

A few tips everybody should consider. I’ve experienced all those and some more. I’m not good at english but I hope you get it. Go and support some artists out there and let them draw you nice shit. Not as nice as FairyNekoDesu but still will be cool so give them a chance and you’ll be surprised.

THIIIIS.

All of these things.

Especially the deadline. If you don’t have a deadline thats way in advanced it’s not gonna get done by then. I am almost always taking on a ton of projects at once and sometimes need a break from it to: work on stuff for me, work on stuff for friends, search for jobs, be the work slave of parents, actually relax and try to relief stress, technical difficulties, researching on how to do stuff, ect.

Sometimes it’s done in a day. Sometimes it’s done literally a year later. But I always update the people I work with so they know I haven’t forgotten.

Do NOT rush your commissioner. Let them work at their pace and it will be worth it. Rushing them insures a rush job which will very likely make the quality decline.

Don’t forget that when you receive it you don’t start asking to make changes and refuse to pay and be ungrateful :(

my digital drawing commissions ad is up! Now it’s official! Along with the commissions, you can add $10 to get it printed into a postcard print! 
Limited Color Palate commission:

>1 character, +25 if you add additional

>approximately 5-8 colors: you can choose something like ‘blues and blacks’ or ‘cool colors only’, or find one color set online and show me, or just go ‘surprise me!’

>Unless you say you don’t want it, there will be a simple background included (see sample images on the ad). But if it’s a more detailed specific background you want, that will cost extra (about $10 or more).

>Turnaround is from one to two weeks depending on time. 
hmmm…i think that’s it. If you’re interested, contact me via ask or email Jackie@jackieloart.com

Another addition to my postcard prints. I’ve got friends who side on the ‘Yes’ on this and the ‘No’ on this. I don’t find it as offensive as some people do, but I feel a little uneasy as well. Like there’s a fine border between aesthetics and functionality of a costume, and the arguments over it are amazing even though some superheroes are practically indestructible and thus don’t quite need to care about what they look like. What really ticks me off are super heroines who wear miniskirts and fly. Now THAT is dysfunctional clothing.  So anyways I decided to make this print—will your circle yes or no?

4x6” print, $5. coming soon!

art, mass production, and you »

roachpatrol:

I think one of the most fundamental misapprehensions people have about the value of commissions is that no one really gets told how mass production defrays costs to the consumer. So, when they see the prices for custom artwork online, they expect the retail prices they see in…

Someone decided to tape a picture on the side of the bart train.
