Welcome to I.T.C.V.
This is a joint freebie art shop / hangout that has joined a group of friends together
who all do the same thing: Draw freebie art.
So instead of having to bounce from thread to thread to thread, we consolidated
it all into one place.
So browse through, and if you like it, stay a while.
This is the home of several artists.
Don't mess up the couch...


In Memory of VonLied


User Image

VonLied was the originator of the idea to join our threads together into one big
freebie spot of sausage-muffin-munching 'gasmic goodness.

He was killed in action in service to his country Sept. 2nd, 2010.
Needless to say, this has had an impact on all of us.
He was such a great friend to us, and he will be sorely missed.
His memory will remain with us forever, and ever, and ever...

You may find a number of us wearing a piece of green and/or an eye patch
in memory of our great and wonderful friend.
It is not necessary. Simply a show of remembrance.

original thread rules:



●╔═══════════════╗●
Rules
●╚═══════════════╝●


Gaia Online Terms of Service (first and foremost).
Each artist has their own specific rules, please pay attention to them.
No stealing any of the artwork. There will be repercussions.
Don't stretch the pages
No begging, demands, spamming, solicitation, hacking. You will be ignored &/or blacklisted.
Please be at least semi-literate. If you have access to a computer and have made your way to Gaia, there must be some semblance of grammar deep down inside. I know there are occasional typos, as I do have some every so often, so that is alright.
Try to keep bumping to a minimum unless you are a hired bumper. Try to converse; I like people who converse.
No quoting the first page posts.
Just because one of the artists says "I'll consider it" doesn't mean "Oh yes, I'll definitely draw it right away and please pester me any time to be sure I'm working on your art"... it means "I'll consider it."
Have patience. This is the most important rule of all. This is a freebie thread. Out of the goodness of our hearts, we are offering our talent for no charge to you. So shut up and feel privileged.

About ITCV
●╚══════════════════╝●



Welcome to: Into the Craptacular Void!


Why the strange name you ask? The title came into being by VonLied as we all were trying to think up a name for this shop. He took the bits and pieces from different shop names and fused them together to bring you this.


Why Freebie Joint Art Shop?


All of us have some sort of passion for drawing and feel the need to share it with others. We like not having time constraints on our muses. That way, our creativity may be able to flourish. I cannot express this enough, pressuring us is not a way of getting art it may bring about a cancellation to your request. Please respect the artists' present and be patient with us, hopefully in time you will be rewarded if we choose you.

All of us had been discussing how hard it was to keep bouncing from thread to thread and since we are all freebie artists', we decided a joint shop would be best.

original clef post:




[Undergoing Renovations}



This is Clef's spot.

About the Artist:
You can call me Clef. I r draw. Nuff said.

My Own Personal Rules:
Please do not pester me about art. I'm a slow artist.

Please don't PM me about art. I rarely check my messages. And even when I do, I tend to delete them without reading them. Less they have interesting titles.

If you want art from me, then post when I'm around. If I'm interested, maybe I'll draw. No guarantee's though.

I do occasionally back read. So maybe you post after I've gone I see it.

Never ask me to do any sort of Inuyasha fan-art please.

The whats and the what-nots.

I've got a list of things I won't draw. These are : Anthro's. Yaoi. Hybrids. Overly cluttered avatars.

Things I'd consider: Mecha. Kinda cluttered avatars. Backgrounds.

Things I'd do. The usual stuff.

How I'll draw.

Quick Sketch

Chibi's.


Full Bodies.

Waist ups.


CG's.

Black and White.


Grey-scale (Pencil pencil)


You don't get to choose the way I'll do art. This is entirely up to me. You can ask for a specific style/type. But really.. it just depends on what kind of mood I'm in and what I want to practice more.

What I require

If you want me to draw your avatar then just let me know. I'll save the avi, along with username.
Want a different avatar drawn? Then give me a tektek link.

Want me to draw a OC? Then provide me with as much information as you can. Reference pics are a +

I may add a OC form or something later on down the road. Not sure yet.

Is Clef not in the mood to do any freebies? Attempt to bribe him?!

I may take bribes. If I do, then I'd accept valuable items, Gold, and sexual favors. sweatdrop

-still under construction-

::. Mel-Related Info .::
Feel free to call me Mel, Lost, or whatever else you can get from my username. :]

I am your typical "been drawing since forever" type of artist. I never went to school to fine-tune
my talent (though I would like to in the future). I tend to like to draw freebies because they make
no demands on my muse, nor do they strain my conscience if they are given at any time. I
have my internet at home again, so am frequenting the thread more of late. But I'm an avid
gamer as well as being generally easily distracted, so... it's still hard to find me here sometimes.
As also previously stated, though, I really love this thread. It's still home to me. I will not
abandon it any time soon.

If you have a question for me or about me, ask here.
So long as it's not asking for art, you can quote me to be sure I get it, and I'll do my best to give
you an answer.
'Tis a pleasure to meet you all. *bow*

:.: Mel-Related Rule(s) :.:User Image
Don't send Mel PMs or Profile Comments regarding art.
If you've a question, critique, or comment to share, share it here.
You can quote Mel to be sure Mel reads your question, critique or comment.
Don't ask Mel for art. Specifically.
Mel draws whoever whenever, so long as Mel has seen you post.
Just. Don't. Ask. For. It. I can't stress this enough.

.:: Mel-Art-Related Info ::.
ITCV Album .:.::.:. OC Order Form .:.::.:. devArt
By posting you make yourself available for a freebie from me. Simple, yes?
I will post art here if you're around, or send it to you if you're not/offline (so
keep your PMs open if you intend to forum/thread hop. )
I don't always give warning if I am drawing you. Always be prepared to be
surprised.

- Most of my work will be in gray scale. Color is completely my choice.
- I may draw couples/groups. BxB, GxG, BxG. Must be inspired for this.
- I may draw original characters. Fill out a form and we'll see.
- I do seem to gravitate toward darker, spiky, creature-y stuff than cuteness.
Just something to keep in mind.

                      ◄The Von►
                      I am VonLied, most just call me Von. I majored in illustration for two years before I joined the Navy. I have been drawing since 1994. I started out drawing anime/manga but began to shy way as soon as I went to college. But, now that I have sold my soul to the Navy, I don't have as much time on my hands to do what my hands do best, draw. After five years of doing avi art for Gaians and friends, I have finally come to the conclusion that commissions really do put a huge strain on your "muse". Freebies make my life much easier, since the Navy is running my life in the mean time. I am no longer requesting gold or items for my work, I only request inspiration.

VonLied in memory

The space below shall house the quoted words of any that have something to say in memory of our well loved friend.

outlaw trinidy
He was all about free art, this place was his idea, and it was his haven. I can think of nothing better than to just have a place where we all can chill on the couch and remember him fondly.
outlaw trinidy's memory
xD one of my favorite memories is the picture I sent him
xD he got a nosebleed and humped me lol

Yuuka Kurokawa's memory
I think my favorite memory is one of my last of him. When I got him that item he was questing for... I think it was some kind of seed... I can't remember. Von's never tackled me before and he did after he found out I was the one that sent him the item. *smiles* That made me happy that he liked the gift.

Mondo Pain

I hardly knew him, but from what I did know of him, he seemed like a good soul.
He'll be missed by all, I'm sure.

Mondo Pain's memory
I have but one memory with Von Lied. That was when he and I exchanged word play, using his name.
We all got some Vontastic laughs out of that.

Rest in peace, Von.

Lost Melfanian
I knew him a few years, but it felt like we'd been joking around together forever.
He was like a brother to me.

... He was a whiskey drinker and a twinkie eater and a good lit. roleplayer.
He was an all around fun guy. It's simply incredible that he should be gone like this.

drakokatze
It's such a shock to hear he's gone :/

Eragoon
never really had a chance to get to know you, but this one is for you Von

Ellorahli
I wish I had gotten to know him a little better, I did talk with him a few times but not a lot...he really sounds like he was a great guy.


Zanaphine
Rest In Peace love.

I've too many memories of him to post.


I'll never forget the six years you were my best friend, my love, my confidant and my support.
I'm glad I told you everything.
I'm glad we had no secrets.
I'm glad we had our time together.
I'm glad for everything we had.
I'm glad I took your advice time and time again.
I'm glad that you were in my life and were the best friend I could ever have had.

I'll see you again in another life.


Mir Nan
He was a great friend and will be deeply missed by many. I only wish I could have known him better. Rest In Peace Jayson.


Herufaia Tenma
So long friend.



acfaerie
A post in Memory of Von:


I remember the smile he'd create with just a simple green ninja'ed post. User Image
The way he'd comment and the way he would boast.
The comparative talk of so many infinite wings, the drunken nights when he'd dance and he'd sing.

The talk of comics, of bills and of school and of studies.
When I'd tutor him in math, he'd always think a drink was his buddy.

The way he'd randomly pelvic thrust through a forum,
and the way he'd let everyone know there was no need for decorum.

The way he'd strut with his twinkies in the air, he'd always wear an eye patch with such fun and flare.

He'd joke in the void throwing sausages to Mel.
As they'd both snicker and hold their tummies as they fell.

There was nothing Craptacular about him even though he'd disagree.
If he saw someone with boobs he'd probably follow and plea.

The talk of things that started with Von,
We'd make a list if it weren't so long.

The only ones I can mention was a night of hysterical laughter,
When Trin, Yuuka, Zana and I would spend one of many a night--
with Von and giggle as we'd pretend to be advertsing masters.

Working with planes by day and painting at night,
he was a magnificent sight.

German Whiskey was his favorite choice of drink.
If you weren't vigilant, you'd miss him in a blink.

A dedicated soldier and a wonderful friend.
We will all miss you and even though its' your end,
We will always love you and hold you in our hearts and in our head.

Von, Rest in Peace and know that you will be missed. heart



Noitseuq Esnesnon
It makes me sad to know so many people who've been killed in this pointless "war on terrorism"...The addition of Von to the list is almost too much to bear...But I'm proud of each and every soldier, sailor and airman on my list and those who weren't. It wasn't them that decided we needed to try and solve another country's problems before we fix our own.

I'm also sad that I wasn't online when it was announced that Von...that he...
......
*sniffles and figuratively sets a box of twinkies, a bottle of German whiskey and a pack of cigarrettes on the headstone* crying

User Image Heyo, I'm the Zanaphine part of this Freebie Thread.
A quick run-down about myself, as far as I can recall, I've been drawing for about as long as I could stand up and draw on the walls in the house and any of my friends that would hold still long enough (god I love those scented felt markers STILL).
I've basic schooling (in other words, High School) but would eventually like to further what I've got skill-wise....
In the mean time, I play around. Most of my drawings are done on paper an colored on Photoshop.

Basically I can do: Fobs, Chibis, Generic Avis with or with out backgrounds, Anthro and Couples.
Example Album

If you've an interest in my work, I'd appreciate if you would send me your request via PM, just so I dont miss your request.
As well, with any requests, I'd appreciate a tektek / tinypic / photobucket (just a general saved image) of the Avi you'd like done up.
And as those before me, I DO reserve the right to not fill your request if I'm swamped or just cant see how best to draw you.
Thanks for lookin!
