Artist for Hire! :) [Sketches only!]

#1 Post by akemicchi » Thu Aug 07, 2014 4:11 pm

Hi, everyone! I'm akemicchi. I draw. _(:3/L)_

I need a distraction from writing and programming. My own project is going to take me a million years a good while to finish, but I've been wanting to work on other projects for the longest time. So let me help out! I'd love to be help make your VN a reality! :D

I am offering
► Character Sketches
Sprites
CGs

I can and am willing to draw:
► Male and female characters (all ages: young, old, middle-aged, etc) (Dudes are my specialty, though)
► Muscles
► Shounen-ai (BxB) / Shoujo-ai (GxG)
► Detailed Backgrounds
► Kemonomimi / Humanoids
► Blood and gore
-- I'm also totally okay with mimicking coloring styles that you like. Just give me a reference and I'll try my hand at it, no problem!

I will NOT draw:
► Ecchi
► Hentai / Sexually explicit material
► Mechas (you don't want to see my mechas)
► Vehicles (you don't want to see my vehicles, either)

There's a 20% discount for bulk orders of more than 5 pieces! \^q^/ Whoo!

Timeframe
Turnaround time for one piece (particularly CGs) is 1 week. Expect artwork sooner for things like sketches. If I will take longer than a week, I'll do my best to contact you on the progress of your order.

On Commissioning Me
  • Send me a PM with a short summary of your game's plot and what you'd like to order.
  • Have references or descriptions ready so I can start on your order ASAP. I'll ask for these when I'm ready to start drawing.
  • When I am ready to start on your commission, 1/2 of the payment must be sent before I start.
  • I will draw the sketch(es), lay down rough colors (if it's a sprite or CG), and send it to you to review.
  • Once I get the go-ahead, I will complete the image.
  • NOTE: If commissioner wants WIPs or updates past the sketch stage, let me know. I will continue to send updates at major points of the image, such like lineart and base colors unless otherwise stated.
  • Once the piece is completed, a watermarked image will be sent as proof of completion.
  • Remaining 1/2 of payment is sent.
  • I send the high-res image (original sized .PNG). Let me know if you want the .PSD file.
Payment and Refunds
All costs are in USD ($). Paypal is the only method of payment at this time. All work is digital.
Half the payment is expected before I start.

If-- at any point in time-- I am unable to finish the commission, I will send immediate notice and refund the money. If the commissioner retracts their order, partial refunds will be considered depending on how far along I am with the image.
**************
PM me if you're interested and we can talk about the details further! :D I tend to check Lemmasoft about twice a day, so I may be a little late in replying. I'm also only going to take two projects at most. I don't think I can handle any more than that, ahaha... ;;;

In any case, thank you very much for your time and consideration! I hope we'll have a chance to work together! :D

I agree with cosmic latte, I just want to throw my money at the screen, lol.

I would so hire you in a heartbeat if I didn't already have a CG and Sprite artist.... Sadly, what I need is a background artist.

Are you open to fan-art? Charged at the rate you do CGs?

Ahaha, thank you very much! I'm dabbling a bit in backgrounds actually, but I'm not confident enough to sell my skills just yet. Anyway, good luck with your game! :D I hope you find a background artist! Welcome to the forums, by the way!

Yes, I'm open for fanart! :) If it's not for a game, it'll be at the cost of a CG, yes.

Wow these are simply too beautiful for words, I can't find the right ones to describe them *_* If only I had a credit card by now, I'd definitely commission you for a whole bunch haha. Anyways, good luck on getting hired and I'm sure you will because these are just lJcnkldjvn;ofjb.

@ LadyofGatsby
Aaah, thank you so much! I'm super flattered, you don't even know. _(:3/L)_



Thank you very much, everyone!
I'm no longer available for Sprites or CGs until I finish the projects I'm on, but Sketches are still open! Feel free to PM me if you'd like any, or if you have any questions! Thank you again! :D
