Do NOT skip these! Read them before going any further.
screamscream ~ Do NOT PM me. My inbox is already filled with my favorite PMs. You have no reason to contact me outside of this thread.
screamscream ~ Do NOT beg. Lots of beautiful artists give away free art in the RIGHT SECTION.
screamscream ~ Do NOT be rude, not to me or anyone else here. This is my little corner of Gaia and I won’t tolerate cruelty or harassment.
screamscream ~ Do NOT alter my art without my expressly given permission. This includes changing formats or resizing. I use a .png format, so you can see all the details clearly. If you want it in JPEG or GIF, tell me and I'll adjust it. If you want it bigger or smaller, let me do it. I'm not comfortable with you doing it and it will literally take me less than a minute. Failure to comply will result in non-removable watermarks across the picture that look ugly. Don't punish yourself. D:
screamscream ~ Do NOT remove my watermarks! Art theft is a crime. I put too much time, effort, heart, and soul into my art for someone else to claim it as their own.
screamscream ~ I will NOT be held responsible for your lack of satisfaction if you give me no details or no good references. I am saying it right now, it is up to YOU to tell me what I need to know.
gonkgonk ~ PLEASE try not to ask for “just a cute picture.” EVERYONE asks for “just a cute picture.” Cute does not define what you want, and your idea of cute may differ from mine. Please, either give me full reign or full details.
Failure to comply with the rules will result in your name finding itself forever engraved on my blacklist. If you cannot take the time to read and follow the rules, you cannot have my art. Simple as that. Your PMs will be ignored.
WILL NOT draw anything over PG14. Which is according to my standard of what should be PG14.
I'd like to say this is influenced by my Christianity, but to be honest... it's because I'm not so good with anatomy under clothing. sweatdrop
If I found it beautifully artistic, I'd do it. I have drawn nudity, but I'm way too self-conscious to bring any attempt out into the light. redface
This doesn't mean I can't draw anything lightly suggestive. One of my samples, with the boy and girl, is what I'm talking about.
Although, maybe a small bribe would work... ;D
There are also a few things I've not really given time to drawing, so it might be unpolished.
But there isn't anything I won't try my best at. biggrin
Example would be hands. I practiced and now they're not half bad. 4laugh
So that’s all. Sorry I had to be all professional, but it’s a necessary evil.
Sorry for the caps, too. But I gotta make sure I made everything perfectly clear. 3nodding
Tell me if you'd rather some item (such as the KiKi, CoCo, Mochi, Gwee, Yeti, etc) be "alive" or "plush." I did several versions of the CoCo in the pictures so you'd see the different available ways, so if there's one you prefer, please let me know. AvyBabies will usually come anywhere between infant to toddler, and will either wear body pajamas or a diaper. Anything over toddler age (2-3 yrs) is outside of the avybaby range.
For reference, I used all four available styles and all three eye styles, and used a version of my avy. The original images were double this size, made this size so as not to stretch the page and to load quickly.
So trust me when I say your pictures will be much better than this.3nodding ~
Here are the styles:
This is the sketched lines still visible under the inking. If you choose no color, you can also choose to have the sketch lines in. By default, they will be taken out.
This is just the inked version, sketch lines taken out.
Here's the finished version, colored and everything. ...yes, I forgot to color in the gloves. I'm too lazy to change it now. >_<
If you want a BG, tell me what you want and we'll negotiate the price.
These are the three available eye styles I do for humans. There are obviously other eyes I can draw (think of the glasses from the casino), so please don't hesitate to inquire. whee
Stylized Full body :: 6k
~~Stylized Full body Plural :: 5k per avy ~~StylizedFullbodyColored:: add 10k ~~StylizedFullbodyPluralColored:: add 10k
Semi-serious Full body :: 8k
~~Semi-serious Full body (Plural) :: 6k per avy ~~Semi-seriousFullbodyColored :: add 10k ~~Semi-seriousFullbodyPluralColored:: add 10k
I will also accept donation letters, sealeds, and items as forms of payment. The letter you choose must be worth at least the cost of the picture (I reference via tektek). If it's close enough to the cost, I'm not gonna be a stingy b***h. Talk to me, I don't bite. =D
Sealed Envelopes will get you one picture, whatever style you'd like, fully colored (you can request no color, as well).
This only covers multiples of up to FOUR (4) avatars/original characters.
Sealed letters normally range between 10-14k. For one picture, full color, the lowest you could pay would be 13k (single, avybaby, colored) and the highest potential picture is up to 34k (plural, full body, colored, 4 avys). So you're getting quite a deal when you pay with a sealed. biggrin
There is no cost for interchanging.
If you do not specify, I will use the one I think is best-suited for the image. AvyBabies look best with the "Anime" style eyes, but you are welcome to request an exchange.
Step 1: Decide what you want. There is an order form you can use, and please use as much detail as possible.
Step 2: Post in this thread with the order form.
Step 3: Click HERE to start a trade with the appropriate amount of gold (your computer comes with a calculator, please use it). Be sure to title it "Avatar Art." At this point, you can confirm the trade all the way and receive your art with no watermark. All the same, if you aren’t comfortable with this, you can just as easily wait until the picture is done to confirm. The picture will be watermarked heavily until the trade is completed, whereupon completion you will be given a link to the clean version. This is to ensure there is no art theft.
Step 4: That’s all! I'll reply to your post, and if there’s nothing wrong with it, I'll confirm my side of the trade and begin drawing. If your trade isn't active, it's probably because I have not begun working on your art. Be sure to check the waiting list for your picture's status!
When the image is finished, it will be up to you to periodically check the thread’s main page to pick up your finished image (or see your watermarked image and confirm your trade). I will not PM you to let you know your art is done. Finished art will remain up for a period of 1-2 weeks. If you are going to be away during this time, please say so in the “Special Details” section of the order form.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE specify if you want a particular pose or not. The more details you give me, the bigger the chance is that you’ll be satisfied with your finished art. If you give as little detail as possible, you’re leaving everything else up to me.
YES, I do dream avy art, but only if it isn’t too complicated. If you aren’t sure if it’s complicated or not, you can post in the thread and ask.
I will do original character art, or even fanart (that is, a pre-existing copyrighted character from comics, movies, tv, etc.) if given good enough examples or a VERY detailed description.
If you have an item you want your avy to wear that you don’t own, either show me a picture of your avy WEARING IT IN THE DRESSING ROOM or USE A SIMULATOR.
HOST YOUR OWN IMAGES. If you just link the picture of the avy in question, and the avy’s clothing changes, I can’t finish the image. So save you the hassle, me the time, and Gaia the idth. It HONESTLY takes only a minute or two to upload to a place like PhotoBucket.
Order Form Please fill out one form per picture. If paying with a sealed letter, write "Sealed!" as the price. 3nodding

Because I was hacked, I don't know who still has an open trade with me. My trades show nothing open. If you are Aurfy or terrible fish and are still interested, please leave me a message in the thread.
Though I will try my very best to get to your
picture quickly, please note that the further down you are, the
longer it will take me to get there. At best, I usually finish one
picture in less than two days, if I work non-stop on it. But don't
expect it to be done right away. Life gets in the way, and I get
busy with work and things don't always work out the way we
want. Also, I have Pokemon Diamond, and I enjoy knitting. w00t.
If you are on the list and are tired of waiting, I will understand.
I hope you will at least leave me a message, so I don't have to
find a canceled trade. Canceled trades make me feel AWFUL,
when there's no note or explanation accompanying it. D=
But I TOTALLY understand, just please let me know. wink

I get an idea. It's WAY cute. If you come here when I list my idea, you must CONVINCE me that you desire the image. Don't worry, I won't be haughty! Just convince me that your avy would look adorable or fabulous in my idea and you get free art! biggrinbiggrin
These fabulous people were either very kind or just super-satisfied with their art. They are lovely people. 3nodding Many thanks to these super cool happy people!! =D =D ((if I don't put you up, it's because I have the memory span of a gnat. PLEASE tell me if I missed you!))
Designated Panda <[heartbiggrin]
I have not have one single customer be unsatisfied with their art, but if I listed every single comment they left me, I would probably kill Gaia’s bandwidth. blaugh
So here’s a small montage of my favorite comments, the ones that make feel butterfly-happy on the inside. biggrin
And OMFG IT'S ADORABLE!!! lol. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! You are seriously really amazing hahahaa. WOW. Really I love it. It's going in my sig now. x3 Really....I really love it. lol I'm done. I'll finish the trade now. heartheartheart
It's soooo great!
I wish that something more than 'I LOVE IT!' was coming to my mind to really describe how much i love it...but i can't. 4laugh
I absolutely love it. Absolutely!
Out of all the art that i've bought, the two have you have made me are certainly my favorite.
...And i've bought a lot of art. 4laugh
Wow! I love it! smile THe feathers on the hat are really great, and I love the starryness of the cape. Definitely one of my favorite pictures done of this character ever. *grin*
Here’s a different kind of section… I want art.
While avy art would be nice, what I *REALLY* want is art of me! The person behind the avy. ^_^
I’d especially love pictures of me, my husband, one or both of our avys together (his name is “EvilConservative,” don‘t you just love his sense of humor?), or even the real us together. I’m even willing to do art trades. biggrin
…though excuse me if I don’t accept stick figures. I want art, not scribble-scratch.
