Welcome, one and all, to Checkmate's Avi Art Shop ~!

I do a variety of art styles, in which I provided samples and prices.
((If you can't tell where the samples are, click the names of the services.
Other samples are further down the page.))


*PRICES ARE UPDATED on 11/15/2012*
*NEW OVERRIDE RULE: If you have any Alchemy component that I need when you request me,
you can have any service you want, regardless of price.
[Place where you can view what components I'll need in alchemy.]*

Chibi = 35k-45k+
Chibi Heads = 30k-35k+
Regular = 50k-60k+
Headshot/Bust = 40k-50k+

Regards to OCs and Fan-Art
Yes, I will draw OCs and Fan-Art. I personally love OCs and Fan-Art~ heart
So, dont be afraid to ask if I can draw your OC or Fan-Art. emotion_yatta
However, the only rule that applies for OCs/Fan-Art is that you tell me that it's an OC/Fan-Art,
or else I'll draw that character with your username instead, or something else~ emotion_facepalm

Headshot/Bust~?
Q) What's a headshot/bust avi art?
A) Headshots are shoulder and up only. Busts are waist and up only.

Q) Is there any differences between a chibi/regular and a headshot?
A) Yes. There are some differences... Like...
• Can't have multiple, single only. If you want something different of this kind, talk to me about it.
• Can have a little animal buddy/companion on your shoulder and/or head.

Singles/Couples/Mulitple
Yes, I do couples and mulitple avis as well. 3nodding
However, it does take more time for me, so I have to hold things into consideration..
Like, How much will it cost for a couple..?
For me, it'll be 10k extra. C:
But... for group pics....
• If you want a group pic, and it's 4 people or under,
I'll just have the art kept at whatever price the art ranges to, with the regular 10k addtion.
• If you want a group pic, and it's 5 people or up, I'll start adding the price; 5k per extra person. ^^;;

In addition to that.. You get a choice of it being in...

• Pencil Only = no additional fee
• Black & White = 5k extra ((Its basically a black & white inked/pen version of your avi art, shaded to the best of my ability.))
• Color = 10k extra ((Adding in color to bring it more life in the picture~ heart ))

Any extras ~ ?
gaia_crown I do backgrounds, free of charge. c;
gaia_crown I can write you name in Japanese, just ask. emotion_yatta
However, if your username is filled with un-usable numbers and I cant read it, I won't write in Japanese.
gaia_crown I love drawing Pokemon. If you want a Pokemon drawn with you, just ask. User Image

As for payments...
I accept payments of gold after I finish the art, so it's all a fair trade. ^^
Sometimes, however, if you have an item that's on my wishlist, I'm willing to take item trades instead of gold. C:

*NEW OVERRIDE RULE: If you have any component that I need when you request me, you can have any service you want, regardless of price.

Art Trades~?
I also do art trades, but thats only if...

1) I am actually interested in the artwork you have.
2) If you want my art and have something to trade of. ((Signs, Banners, Art, etc.))


Other than that... Just talk to me about Art trades via Comments/PMs. 3nodding

Any Other Rules~?
• Warning! I update my "Request List/Waiting List" frequently, so check back on it often! yum_puddi

• NO CLUTTERED AVATARS! PLEASE! I CANNOT WORK WITH THEM. emotion_donotwant

• PLEASE Send a trade to me with your Bribe/Offer if it's Gold or items or components before I start the Art. I'll confirm the trade with you ONCE I finish and submit it.
I'd rather not want to deal with art thieves, so please send the trade before I start your work!


• Please regard and follow all Gaia ToS, including the Art Shop ones.

• Please read through the rules (which are more like guidelines, etc..).

• No rude commentary, take those to the wee little Like/Dislike buttons. c:
Or, just PM/comment me. :3

• Q) Freebies? emotion_kirakira ?
A) Catch me in a Freebie thread, not here. emotion_awesome
I do freebies, whenever I feel like it.

• Any other questions? :3 ?
Post them here or by a comment/PM. C:

Warning: My avi art is done on sketch paper, then scanned. emotion_c8
If you dont like what I do, then by all means.. Leave. emotion_awesome

The list of Avi Art that I finished has been moved to a different thread, which you can find.. here.

Other than that, this list will still let me keep on eye on who owes me. This list will only hold names of people that still owe me, etc.


Who owes me still..

♦ Lost Dominion ♢

"Lost piece? Sure you're not talking about a missing chess piece?"

No, when I refer to a lost piece here, I'm referring to people who have long past payment date.
Or some other inhideous act.
This is what is known as my Black-list.
Anyone in this list was on my "Owe me list" for a while, like over a month or so.
Or no response to paying or overall contact with me after the art piece was finished.
