Commissions - Open by SweetDuke

NOTE:
I like to do my commissions at my own pace. Because of this, I will be doing very few commissions at a time so I don’t overload my schedule. You can still request for a commission, but depending on my free time (or availability), I may or may not accept it. If I don’t please hold your ideas till a slot is open. Thank You.


Paypal Stamp by artist4com

Before I explain what Commissions that I've opened up to (which will be explained below), here are some rules.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yellow Square Bullet by Kawiku My Rules and Guidelines Yellow Square Bullet by Kawiku

  • Please send a NOTE if you want a commission (I won't accept otherwise)
  • Please refrain from rushing/annoying me about your commission.
    • I don’t work well under stress and I take my time to make sure the art you requested will not only be up to your liking, but how you wanted.
  • I only accept Paypal (USD and other are acceptable). I will send and INVOICE to your Paypal for the money (for protection purposes).
  • What is my style?
    • My style is a mixture of cartoon and semi-realism shown in my gallery on DA and here: portfolios.ringlingcollege.me/…
    • I tend to be a bit detailed regardless of how cartoon-y the art is and all the art I’ll do will be within my own style.
  • I’ll put you on the list and start when I get the money from you.
  • If you already paid for the commission and ALREADY told me what you wanted (character/theme/etc.), you cannot change it if I’m halfway through or have already started it.
    • I will make exceptions of changing a few things only if I haven’t started the project yet or am just slightly began working on the project.
    • I can edit the drawing if you really didn’t like certain small things. But I’m not remaking it, or sending the money back.
    • I will show you sketches during my progress of the project. It's a way to help me see if the direction I'm going is what you wanted or not.
    • If you wanted something changed after the pic is done and given to you, it is an additional cost.
      • When sent, it will be in a pdf format (if you have other options of how you want your work sent (other than mailing at the moment, please let me know.
  • Maximum character/creatures in one spot illustration 2 (might make an exception for 3)
  • I am NOT a professional! I have my mistakes. Don’t complain if you didn’t like the picture.
  • Last but not least, you CAN’T reserve a slot unless you have the money with you. (no $$, no commission)

Blue Square Bullet by Kawiku How It Works Blue Square Bullet by Kawiku

First, you send me a note here on DA for what you want. Character Information, some reference pictures, and all details (I need: Pose, mood, background, etc.). But, you could also just give me the character/creature (maybe some words) I shall draw, and then give me free hands for details. Maybe it will end up much more interesting that way.

Once the piece is commissioned, you may use it as you please, it is now your property, for layouts and whatever, without being required to link me back, but you have to give me credit. However, you may NOT claim the piece as your own! I still reserve the rights to the artwork; you may NOT make money off of it. If you are looking for something to redistribute or resell at conventions and such, speak to me.

Thanks for reading.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Purple Square Bullet by Kawiku Prices and Payment

---------------------------------------

Now that the rules and guidelines are established, this Commission will be based around animals. If you’ve seen my Guardians of the Twelve Elements, then it is simple. Choose an animal, then choose the element to go alongside with it. It can be your favorite animal or element, an element that is your sign (or the animal as well), maybe it's an animal that isn't your favorite or something you are curious about.

(it can be your favorite, not your favorite, an animal you are interested in or curious to see) and the element you would like it to be in (once again, it can be your element or not, or just out of curiosity). If you want to be surprised, with the animal, element or both, then I’ll do my best to do so.

Working on my Guardians took me 1-4 week (maybe even longer or fewer, depending my focus and motivation) to get it done. I make sure each detail, coloring, shading and the visuals not only look right, but feels right as well. So it will take me some time…but the best works of art (or writing) are never rushed.


All right then, five slots are open! Name your art and price, and we’ll get to business.

Slot 1- :iconxbox-ds-gameboy:

Slot 2-

Slot 3-

Slot 4-

Slot 5-

Before I forget,  please do NOT take, distribute, or sell my artwork. I've worked very hard on each piece I've created over the years--it takes me such a long time to create it and last thing I need to see is for someone to take that work away from me. If you want to fan art my Guardians or other works, please ask my permission.

My Holiday Memories store is here for those interested in buying these items: www.zazzle.com/holiday_memorie…

Also, if you guys want free shipping for Zazzle, there is the Zazzle Black option (please read those so you know which one you want). Just a heads up though, after the free unlimited time shipping is up, you will pay a fee to continue using the free shipping service (Standard: 9.95/year--I prefer this one more cause it's cheaper). You can cancel the free shipping before the limit is up.

Have you ever walked around your house at night and swore you saw something move in the shadows, despite there being a dim light on? Or even stared at a picture and had to rub your eyes because you thought its face has moved? There are some strange things that have happened to me in the past, but not in a creepy, haunting way (even though it kinda felt like it).

For instance, one afternoon when I was sitting on my bed, I was on my laptop typing up some new ideas for stories I’ve done in the past when I felt something brush against my arm. At first, I thought it was my puppy, Marley, but I realized he was eating his lunch at the time. Also, I had no blanket or snuggie on me to keep me nice and warm. It actually freaked me out because that “brushed” feeling felt like when one of my cats would take their tail and rub it against my arm. I wondered if it was their way of telling me thank you…I’m still wondering.

However, the biggest and strangest thing that has ever happened to me was after my Grandmother’s (on my mom’s side) funeral.

Picture this scenario…it was at my Grandma Robinson’s place one cold evening. We had all just said our goodbyes to the friends and other family members that managed to make it out to New York to attend the funeral. After such a long and exhausting day, we relaxed on the soft, plush, black leather sofas and turned on the TV to see Wreck-It Ralph was showing. During that time, my mom, Anthony (my youngest uncle), and Pamela (my youngest aunt), were talking about fun memories we had with Grandma when suddenly the phone started to go off. Pamela called Bradley (my uncle) to answer the phone, but he was busy cleaning a room at the moment.

In my grandmother’s house, whenever someone calls the phone, the number and name appears on the TV—how they have that set up, I have no idea…but this is where it gets strange. The person that was trying to call us was no other than Grandma Robinson herself. Her name and number was on that phone…on the TV in bright bold black and white lettering. Mom, Pamela, Anthony and I just looked at each other in silence with the most bewildered, confused and freaked out expressions on our faces. Uncle Bradley calls for my dad to answer the phone, and when he did, it was nothing but static. Grandma Robinson’s phone was in the kitchen on the dining table…so how in the heck did she call if we just buried her hours ago?!

After a while, dad hung up the phone and now Uncle Bradley decides to finish and come out! I swear that OCD of his always makes him miss the craziest things that happen in her house. Anyways, we explained to Uncle Bradley what we heard and saw, he looked confused as well, but I will never forget what he said next:

“You know, when I was cleaning mom’s room, for a brief moment, there was a shadow…a shadow that looked exactly like her, but most of all, where her shadow was at…it was very warm.”

To this day, it still sends chills down my spine.
Snippet #2 - Things That Go Bump
I know some people may not believe in ghosts or spirits, but I do because there is no explanation as to why these strange occurrences happen. However, I do believe the reason for these weird events has to do with a message these spirits, ghosts, or those who have passed on, wanted to tell us. My mom believe it was a message of reassurance….a way to tell her that everything will be okay.

Have you guys ever gone through something like this? And what do you think it means?

P.S. I'll post up the illustration to go with this later on.

When my grandmothers passed away, that was the hardest and saddest thing for me to deal with. I loved both of my grandmothers; I loved them so much that I wish I could have their comfort and wisdom now. I remember going to see my Grandma (on my dad’s side) and listen to her tell me about her grand life story, jokes or even show me a few card games. I was always excited whenever she had something to say to me—she was like a breath of fresh air from all the turmoil in the world.

She was also great at keeping the family together. No one would dare miss a family reunion, birthday, or any holiday without her. Just a single phone call and…BAM! Everyone was at the doorstep ready to have fun, laugh and celebrate. It always felt like a party or a day at the beach with her. Her true goal, aside from seeing her children and grandchildren, was to watch them be happy amongst themselves. She always wanted to make sure that what we were doing was not only something we truly wanted, but felt it was going on the right path.

Then there is my other Grandmother…Grandma Robinson (on my mom’s side). She is black all the way from the top of her head down to her toes. She will not take excuses (believe me, she’ll see through anyone’s bullshit), she is very honesty (she’s not to give you the actual truth. No sugar coating), she is determined and headstrong, but most of all, she always had your back no matter what. If something happened to your or if someone didn’t treat you right, she will be there in a heart beat to “settle” it. She is firm and will make sure anything, and I mean, ANYTHING will get done. Heck! She has to be, especially when she not only has 3 kids of her own, but also adopted 4 more to boot!

But the one thing I wished I could’ve done was get her out of that neighborhood she lived in up in NY. It was a ghetto neighborhood where you need to be strong and alert to survive. People will pick at you if you show vulnerability…but now that I’m thinking about it, she had no problem standing up to thugs when they were scared of her. Heh…she is a true sweetheart, but she will show you some tough love.

S-Sorry…I’m tearing up right now…it’s just…it’s still hard to know they’re gone. I-I’ll never be able to hear their voices again or get a phone call from them. Dammit…I hate death so much…I hate it. I know it’s a part of life but...it’s just not fair. ....I guess that’s why I always hope to dream them up or even go to the cemeteries to just talk about how my life’s been and how the rest of the family are. I know they can hear me. There is always a whisper in the wind, or a soft warm breeze that gently caresses my cheek whenever I do. And just knowing that they’ll always be there, that is what’s making me smile.
Snippet #1 - Visiting Cemetaries
It's still a shock to me that both of my grandmothers have passed on from the world. Aside from my family, they were always someone I would go to constantly for either a nice chat, fun or even just hang out. I thank them for everything they have done for me and their families. I hope that someday, I could be as great as a grandparent (which I'm not...yet...) as they were.

Ugh...to think the sickness would go away but it comes right back in full force. Curse you weather!! :sick:
Just saw the new Fantastic 4 movie. It was actually really good; I enjoyed it. I don't know where this hate is coming from for this movie...Cast was great, story was very engaging. Can't wait to see if they will make a sequel to this film (crossing my fingers). :D
