Oh my!

Only saw the first picture and immediately wanted one like that for my own character...

But im still a bit fuzzy on how i go about all this...

1: do you do character concepts on request?
2: if you do, could you do one from a couple of in-game screenshots or would you prefer a description and work from that?
3: do you want recompensation of some sort or do you do this for free?
4: do you only do the ones that catches your fancy or do you do all requests (within reason)

Because i would love one of these as a wallpaper for my desktop of my bountyhunter Chakra

If what you said would be true, then most of the artists would be drawing random flowers xD

Besides, its not that they lose anything. The opposit. A good artwork is as good as an advertisement. Most companies know this and encourage artists to do fanarts :P
The reason I ask is because when I was just outta' college, using anyone's art, even for 'extra-promotional-type-inspiration' was an offense that would get you sued, basically. Hence my question.

Edit: I'm sorry, it's just been my experience to observe artists being sued for selling others' art and ideas. I've seen major companies go after young artists, before. This forum is fascinating to me, however. Just knowing someone can do this kind of thing and get paid for it without punishment or litigation of any kind is - really a wonder. I'm an artist, too. But I don't draw flowers, really. I draw people.

Hey guys

I'll upload the finished commission tomorrow most likely ^^
Until then, hope you guys doing well

EDIT: modified first post with the correct commission list so far ^^ Re-checking request board tomorrow in case I missed somebody

@OddballEasyEight

1: do you do character concepts on request?
Yes I still do char concepts As you could see in the first post ^^ Nice list T_T God I need to step on it XD XD
2: if you do, could you do one from a couple of in-game screenshots or would you prefer a description and work from that?
I can work with good screenshot material The commission I'm doing atm, Ryger is done the same way. I got a couple of in-game screens + a nice description on the character ^^ I can work from description only too, but any pic reference helps a lot So the end product is usually closer to the requester's imagination ^^
3: do you want recompensation of some sort or do you do this for free?
Depends on what you'd like to do. If you check the difference between request art and commission art, yu can see a huge boost in quality with the commission piece compared to the request. Also, commissions take priority, meaning, request art will be done on downtime/inbetween commissions, as I have time ^^
Ofc, I'd prefer the commission, but its entirely up to you
4: do you only do the ones that catches your fancy or do you do all requests (within reason)
So far I've done all the requests. It would be a bit egocentrical to pick the only ones I prefer. To be honest, sometimes I ended up having fun with some of the requets that I originally thought it would not be anything interesting ^^ Basically, its up to my imagination to make something more appealing Thats my job anyway
Hope that answered your questions ^^
If you have any more let me know I dont bite xD

@Zeruhn -- Hehhe, np mate ^^
Actually I'd be in trouble if I steal somebody's stuff and post it as my own. But as most artists, I HATE art-theft -.-" from the core of my being. I think what I do is not stealing. I make an artwork, putting in a lot hours into make one. Its a fan-art, despite the characters/equipment itself belongs to Bioware/Lucasarts. If it would be an issue to draw their characters, then only the official artists would be able to draw them ^^; Which would be a pity + it would be BORING xD Besides, its a great opportunity for them to seek out new and fresh artists if they like :P
And yes I dont like to draw flowers either xD
Actually I'm not the only one drawing commissions here A lot of people do that on this forum ^^

@Rotton -- Thanks a lot mate Glad you like my works ^^ But ya know, those awesome forum avatars and whatnot would not be around if ppl like you dont fiddle with the art we make I know, I'd make a terribad job doing one XD

I only had to look at the first three art pieces to decide that you were by far the GREATEST ART MAN for my character. You should feel honored... as my character would say.

So I guess you can do a comission (do you have to pay for them with actual money or something?) of my character called Darth Eminok, which is also my forum name.

Just as a foreword I'd just like to state that my character is (as everyone ALWAYS says) a complete uber-destroyer-of-worlds-death-star-GOD-MOD and would probably beat up everyone in Dragon Ball Z. So I guess you can go to levels of DBZ, Sidious, God of War, or whatever fits the description of insane with power/god-mod/destroying planets and life with mere thoughts .

Ah and here's my character description:

Spoiler


So that's it.

I'd also prefer if Darth Eminok was in action with his lightsaber and force powers galore against unthinkable odds. Basically one of his good moments I guess.

Thank you sooo much!

Phenomenal work, I wish I was even a tenth as artistically inclined as you.

Got only 2 days left from sub, not sure if I can still post here if its off ^^
Not sure if I'll be subbing again, so in case I could not post here after it runs out, you can find me on Deviartart or the SW:TOR-RP forums ^^

I'll be uploading the finished work for my last commission tomorrow

You most certainly are able to post on the forums, mate, even without an active subscription.

Question: Do commisions cost anything? I've been looking around here and haven't found an answer.

Thanks Spartanash, keep up the GREAAAATTT... (Who am I kidding?) EXCELLENT work.
