Welcome to Gaia! ::

WELCOME TO ELA'S PORTRAITS AND COMPOSITIONS!


Fondest greetings to you all. This seems to be...my new and improved minishop! Yay!

I just needed to make a new minishop because I wanted to sell my music as well as my avi art and "inexperienced" in the shop name just doesn't work. However if you want to see my old shop and its outposts, click on this banner.

AVI ART


I don't pretend to be the greatest artist in the world, but I want to carry over the things from my old shop.

I can make avi art either on the computer (which is where my bad art comes from), or by hand. I usually draw in sort of a half-anime style on the computer and my own little style by hand (although VaRR is more anime-ish). Bear in mind that some poses or features are hard for me and I'll charge you for that.

Pricing:
Computer-drawn - 750g
Hand-drawn grayscale - 1000g
Hand-drawn computer-colored - 1500g
Hard poses or features - add 100g

I send out messages through Takinta when your art is done. I like to receive money before I give you the art because I consider it safer. Because of that, I do send watermarked copies. Just tell me if you want one. I will only send you the unwatermarked copy, though, when you pay.

MUSIC


That's right, the composer is now selling her music!

I compose with Allegro 2000 music notation. This is a fairly complex program so I would like to say that you must have at least some knowledge of music when you order it. Don't just say "I want a little piece!" No. For one thing, instrument specifications are necessary, and I can't do rock or techno or the like. I can also do live performances (you'll need it if your song has lyrics) on voice, flute, or violin. This will be costly, however, as I would need to convert the MID into a WAV, and those are big. Lyrics are also costly as I am not a good lyricist. Titles are free. I can make up one or you can give me one to work from. You must specify the length in minutes (it's easier for you). For people who have music knowledge, details like time signature and key are permitted. Oh, and I can also give out the score for those who have Allegro or Finale and email or IM that they don't mind sharing.
After your music is done, I will send you a "your music is done" message through Taki. Again, I would rather you pay before you receive it because it's safer for me. Sadly, there is no way for you to hear it before you pay because music can't be watermarked. After you pay, I'll send you a link to your song as I will have it on my music site.

Pricing:
Base price - 1000g
Add 10g per instrument (excluding voice or piano)
Add 20g for voice or piano
Add 50g per minute
Add 1500g for live performance
Add 500g for lyrics (by me)
Add 5g for key, time signature, or tempo specification
Add 100g for a copy of the score

Samples:

ANNOUNCEMENT BOARD


11/7/06: An apology to the music orders. My MIDI is broken right now and I have no idea when it will be fixed. Composing takes way too long without it, so I'll get back to composing when I can. Still expecting lyrics from ILovetheAngelofMusic/-DancingThroughLife-.
