Trading art for creatures!

Postby SwnyTddObsd » November 7th, 2017, 11:01:28 pm

All deals can be bargained over!
I know the values of these creatures differ wildly in each category. Creatures typically valued over 30k definitely overrule my weird tier system below; come chat about it!

I opened this thread in 2014, but to be honest, I haven't really touched my tablet much since I last went inactive on MS. I'd like to just share my doodles here, and maybe, just maybe, some of you are willing to pay in creatures for some custom art?
Definitely my first time trying commissions, anyhow.

- - - - -

Here are some nice, long lists of creatures I'd like to trade! In general, I'm looking for the lowest gen possible (SB or 1st gen), unless otherwise noted. I will accept 2 pairs maximum of each non-stream creature and 3 pairs maximum per stream creature, unless otherwise noted.

  • An asterisk (*) means I'm just interested in hatchlings.
  • Three asterisks (***) indicate creatures I'll take unlimited quantities of!
  • Creature names marked with an (@) mean I'd accept any generation of creature so long as it wasn't inbred.


Stream creatures:

Shop creatures:

Hybrid and Quest creatures:

Event creatures:

Donis (SB or 1st gen; hatchlings preferred for all, but not required):

Thanks for your patience in browsing the lists!
I'm thinking of offering these tiers of drawings:
  • lineart only (A)
  • sketch with one or two flat colors, flat (B)
  • sketch with three or four colors, shading (to the extent of my ability) (C)
  • full color but no bg (D)
  • full color with bg (donis only)

The values for drawings will tentatively go like so:
  • Tier A - 3 stream creatures OR 1 shop creature
  • Tier B - 6 stream creatures OR 2 shop creatures OR 1 hybrid/quest/event creature
  • Tier C - 16 stream creatures OR 8 shop creatures OR 4 hybrid/quest creatures OR 4 event creatures
  • Tier D - 30 stream creatures OR 12 shop creatures OR 10 hybrid/quest creatures OR 8 event creatures

I can also offer some simple editing services, in terms of making banners or signature/avatar sets if that sort of thing floats your boat. I could make gifs, for instance, that you can use in either part of your profile. This is pretty different from drawing digitally, so let me know if that interests you as well.

Anyone offering a doni is absolutely free to bargain with me over the value of the doni! I'm thinking we could go one of four ways:
  • A full color drawing with a background
  • A full color character, no background, but as an gif in some simple way that's within my capabilities (e.g. sparkling, bouncing in place)
  • Six or more sketches, with or without color
  • Some other combination of the above

I am unfortunately not an animator in the sense of being able to do things like walk cycles, but if you have a doni to share with me, please feel free to ask about whether or not I think I can fulfill your request! > v<

Please let me know what you intend to trade with your request as well! Just so I have an idea beforehand of what to expect. :> I'm thinking of releasing sketches/first drafts for tiers C and D, but since these orders are bigger, I'd just like to check beforehand. ; v;

You can see some examples below, but I'll work on uploading some examples for things I can do now and things I'm trying to learn! I will say that I have more trouble with animal based drawings, but I will do my best and am willing to work with everyone to make corrections as you see fit before we call our deals done. ^_^

Thanks for browsing!

hello!
would you be willing to draw a colored/shaded halfbody of this character without a background?

if so, what tier would it be considered?

25 gifts, thank you so much!!

Absolutely! Does Tier D for a full colored and shaded halfbody sound fair to you? :orly:

My pleasure! I'd just like to ask a few questions before I start. ^.^

How old is this character? Is there any specific pose and/or outfit you think would suit them? (If not a specific pose or activity, how about a personality trait I should try to emphasize?) And would you prefer a hair color closer to the first or the second reference picture? ^_^

she's about eighteen, and she's pretty shy. she usually wears the outfit in the second picture (the dress that has a white bodice with a brown panel in the front with buttons, a brown skirt, and a white apron. she also usually uses a brown piece of fabric to tie back some of her hair). her hair color is sort of a dirty blonde, which is shown a little better in the first picture.

Hello, here's something like a first draft! My process is basically sketching over and over until I nail down some ideas and test out some colors. You can see I've roughly mapped colors on the one on the right, but I wanted to ask if you would want any particular corrections before I start the final draft? e.g. hair color, expression, clothing details and the like.

those look great! two tiny things- she has a freckle beside each eye (they're kind of hard to notice in the references, sorry), and her skirt has a little more body, but other than that the sketches are fantastic!

Thank you for the corrections and for waiting! ^.^ I'm glad you could help me catch things I missed ; v;

I've got the final draft! I'm not sure how these things usually go in the Seller's Gallery, but perhaps I'll send you the fullsize, non-watermarked copy after we confirm the trade and make sure all the details are in place? 0: If there's anything you'd like to me change, please let me know!

Here's a smaller preview image:
