i hate when people go “i dont credit fanartists as Real artists because its fanart and they should draw more original art” ok yeah that patronizing attitude is nice and all but you know like… every piece of classical art is fanart of the bible
im sorry da vinci, the last supper doesnt COUNT as real art because its not original art and you should make some ocs
I think I just found the most compelling argument toward fanart ever
Hee, this is correct.
As some of you might know, Skoon is being forced out of his home because his moron of a roommate got arrested for downloading child porn. He’s sitting in jail now, and Skoon and his remaining roommate are being stuck with that guy’s place under his name.
They have to move out within a few weeks with plans to head up to New York, and likely be without internet for a time. I want to be able to help, and I’m hoping you all can, too, by donating what you can so that they don’t have to leave empty-handed. I would appreciate you helping out a friend and fellow artist, and he too extends his thanks for anyone that could help.
Send a donation to irrlvnt1 at aol dot com on paypal if you’re able. Thanks for reading.
As I am living currently with my brother here, I feel I should thank you all as well. Your kindness cannot be overstated.
I would like to add my thanks, being the other roommate. Though I will add that a uhaul big enough for us to use will cost over $1000, not including gas, or other moving expenses. I don’t mean to sound greedy here. I am just trying to be realistic. We already have just under 340 and I would like to thank any and all donators thus far.
UPDATE: We have just over $450, but we have about 3 weeks till we have to move. I am also thinking,to spur on anyone who might want to give. I can give away my comicon Derpy and perhaps a few other things. to one of the donators at random as a thank you. Perhaps more stuff in necessary. If you can’t donate, but can pitch in with stuff to add to give way please let me know at this tumblr. We are looking to hopefully have roughly $4000 to help cover the rather expensive moving costs, and rent issues and whatnot. I know this sounds like a lot, and it is, but we could really use your help.
Sorry if this seems like spam. We have just under 670 at the moment, I will say this. I also have the first series of mlp collector cards. All of them but the con exclusives. I suppose I could also proffer these up as a thank you item as well to be chosen at random, though for something like this I might exclude donations under a set amount. Again, if anyone has anything to add to this, let me know at evilpoptartpony.tumbler.com I would appreciate any added assistance, even if it is just a simple reblog.
Our address again is irrlvnt1@aolDOTcom
If anyone’s got any spare cash… The Maker knows I don’t… *sigh*
IMPORTANT COMMISSION INFORMATION BELOW (IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS)!!
Q: HOW DO I EVEN COMMISSION YOU, DC?
A: you can reach me here on tumblr through my ask box or fanmail, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! message me with WHO you’d like me to draw, WHAT they’re doing/wearing/looking at/etc, WHERE they are (if a background is requested), and WHEN you need it if there are time constraints—a priority fee of 1(one) dollar will be added to your total (please only use this as needed, like for presents and such that need to get to people on time for their holiday of choice)
Q: CAN I ASK FOR MORE THAN ONE PERSON IN A DRAWING?
A: absolutely! additional figures will add $9 each to your total, no matter the commission style you choose (hint: that’s a pretty sweet deal!)
Q: CAN I GET A DRAWING OF [INSERT “ODD” REQUEST HERE]?
A: i’m pretty lax when it comes to content, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! very rarely will i decline to draw something outright. keep in mind that if there is excessive gore, violence, or other sensitive content, pornography, fetish art, or anything that might get me in jail if i give it to minors, DON’T BE A MINOR ASKING AFTER IT. i reserve the right to decline commissions for any reason, but will do so at the start—i will never half finish a project before cancelling.
Q: SO HOW LONG’S THIS GOING TO TAKE ANYWAYS?
A: that depends on how many orders i have going at a time, and how complicated the commission is. i will keep a list of the orders as they come, and that information is free to ask after at any time. you will be updated on the progress of your commission (if you’d like/is necessary), and will be sent the file upon its completion.
Q: THIS IS GONNA COST MONEY, ISN’T IT?
A: yes, and all payments can be made to my paypal, or with check or money order (paypal is easiest, and for the love of all that is good in this world do NOT send me cash—the mail system cannot be trusted!!) the price will be determined after you send me the request, and if need be, payment plans or negotiations can be made, but don’t expect to get a fully rendered piece for 10 bucks just because you blink sweetly enough at me. ALL PRICES ARE IN USD, PLAN ACCORDINGLY IF YOUR CURRENCY AIN’T THAT.
Q: I DON’T LIKE THE DRAWING.
A: you will be sent a plan for approval before i start finishing your commission in any sense, so if it isn’t what you wanted when it’s done….tough tooties?
Q: MY QUESTION ISN’T IN THIS PILE OF INFORMATION, HOW WILL I EVER GO ON?
A: if you have ANY questions about ANYTHING regarding your commission, please ask me!! before the piece is underway is the best time to do so, since it makes changes much easier for me to do, and therefore more likely to happen. seriously, it may feel dumb, but i’d rather you ask a million questions that seem silly after the fact than be disappointed because i wasn’t clear enough on your instructions.
even if you aren’t getting a commission yourself, i’d be especially grateful if you signal boost this and reblog! every bit helps~
open always and forever, please reblog
Saw this person at AwesomeCon. So… signal boosting. :)
Super edgy pastel graphics telling you how not to be an asshole!
THESE ARE PERFECT
these are so fucking great
i am all for all of this.
Was pretty great! We stood in line for like over an hour to get inside, but it was totally worth it because we met really cool people and saw tons of neat costumes! I spent most of the time there in the massive dealers’ area, checking out super cool artists, comic vendors, and one of my writer friends from Maryland. Also I saw the guy who played Xander on Buffy, and Dak from Star Wars (not much, but yeah, visual recognition on my part). Oh, and they had this really perfect RC R2-D2 unit with sounds and everything! So many good cosplays… Wow. Oh! And I got to see and talk with one of the artists who’s worked on the pony comics! Even got her to sign my copy of the issue she did the cover for! So I’m pretty darn stoked right now, as you can imagine, but also utterly exhausted. So much stuff…. Wow… So overall I give this con 8/10. The only drawbacks were how utterly crowded and disorganized everything was (could’ve been a lot worse). Oh yeah, and I saw my uncle there too who I haven’t seen in years, so that was cool. Cheers.
When it comes to cooking, not everyone is at the same skill level…
