What if, instead of Shulk’s eyes glowing blue when he has a vision, they turned into googly eyes?
a comic done by christianne benedict, posted on the womanthology art forum. brilliant!
YES. Jesus, thank you.
I cannot tell you how many times I have had to point out what the audience at conventions actually LOOKS like to people in the industry. They can do signings in a booth full of every kind of person all day long, every color, every size, every orientation and more, and STILL go online and talk about how only white straight males read comics.
IT IS PROFOUNDLY UNTRUE AND INSULTINGLY IGNORANT.
Well I sold one of my hatchlings. Which one? The oddball with the obsidian shimmer, which looks kind of greenish. That one was 20k, so I think the reason I’m not selling anything is because the market is crap and people only want to buy cheap dragons.
This won’t do well once I start breeding coatls and imperials.
This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph.
Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.
If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.
And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.
People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.
Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.
I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.
And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.
Request =/= Commission
I think all artists should reblog this every time it passes their dash, because non-artists don’t understand how and why an artist might want to do some freebies.
They’re all so pretty! :D
Yes, but nobody wants to buy them, and I have steel-on-aqua circuit spirals with a nest that will hatch tomorrow. I like FR, but we need another signup period because the dragon sales are awful right now. I sold a XXY with only one gene today, yet didn’t sell a single one of these pretty crackle babies.
I just lowered my prices a hair and turned them into treasure sales, not gems (I guess I’ll only do gems for imps or coatls), and hopefully that will help. I’m just afraid of my little babies getting exalted without a name, which happens way too often during big dominance wars.
