Commissions and PAYPAL and a 2nd commission!

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 15, 2010, 1:27 PM


Yo! Finally i have PAYPAL!

Actually, the paypal account isn't mine, rather a really good friend of mine agreed to receive payments through his paypal for the meantime until i get my own credit card. I owe him big time for this huge favor, i am thankful that i have a friend i can rely on when i need it. Thank you very much Miko! :happycry:

For the rates, another good friend here in DA, i hope he doesn't mind me name dropping him, gave his estimate on how much i should charge for commissions. i pasted his message below for reference. I am open for negotiations, if you believe that the prices suggested are way too high.  e-mail for a faster reply.

:bulletblue: Here is :iconthorsassassin: message regarding the rates:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Well i think your art is superb, i really do. Sorry for the late response but i am usually off for weekends to be with the family. Also after looking through your work, here is what i would charge if i were you:

Lineart (simple figure no background*) - $40 - Sample--> werder.deviantart.com/art/RE4-…
Lineart (Single figure detailed background*) - $50-$75 depending on complexity - Sample--> werder.deviantart.com/art/werd…

*additional characters $20

Colored Portrait (single character no background) - $65
Colored Portrait (single figure detailed background) - $100
Full colored piece with full colored background and 2 characters - $150-$200 depending on complexity

Of course this varies with everything the client may want but if i were able to still commission art, that's what i would be willing to pay for your work.

Many thanks! :handshake:

I'm just using a friend's paypal account. Might take me mid this year or maybe even longer to be able to get my own card. I really don't want to get one, but necessity requires it.^^;

Zat's soooooo awesum! :P

Okay, proper English now... My mother owns a cat shelter and she has, like, 50 cats (most likely far more)... :P We used to have two dogs but one died (*cries*) and the other got adopted out...

I'm just excited to see someone else who is just as nutty about cats. :D

I know the story is pretty hard to believe, we didn't even believe something like this could happen to us. We're a quiet family, we bother no one. But s#!% happens.

I do hope that this not hinder your thoughts on a possible commission.

If it does, still many thanks.

Wow, that's really awesome, it's one of my dreams to build a shelter for cats and dogs. Most of our cats are strays i usually pick up on the street.

You have no idea how crazy i am with cats, i've gotten into fist fights and arguments with neighbors and dumbass people hurting and killing cats for fun, recently; just last year, our dumbass neighbor shot my cat with a homemade airgun, my mom nearly had a heart attack, i stormed out of the house to confront the idiot, my mind went blank, i was so pissed i wanted to beat the guy to a pulp, my mom was crying so hard because aside from my cat coming home with a wounded leg, she was trying to stop me from confronting the butthole.

Man, we yelled at each other, it almost ended in a gun fight, my dad's a retired naval officer so he has a gun, he also got in the conflict because the idiot instead of apologizing and taking responsibility, he blamed my cat for eating his friggin chickens and started to taunt me, like he's the one who's pissed. we have a house for our cats, we built it for them so that they won't go wandering off, it was just that time that Dino got out and wandered off.

For months we couldn't get a good night's rest because that neighbor of ours and his family is known for killing other people behind their backs if you piss them off...like just what happened.

Eventually things were settled in the village leader's hall, the funny thing was, they were the ones who file a complaint against us...for a challenge to a gun fight...but inside the hall it was totally biased, the damn village leader is their friggin relative, the secretary as well and mostly the residents of our village are their friggin relatives. And his cousin who just got out from jail, who was jailed because of killing some dude, was also there to accompany him. It was chaos inside, with a lot of yelling. I managed to calm everything down by telling them i have already contacted my lawyers and that they have advised us to file charges for violating the animal welfare act and for possession of illegal weapons.

Actually we don't have a lawyer, my girlfriend contacted a PAWS, and they helped, i also contacted a big tv network for help, they were all ready to help.

To make things short, it was all settled with us giving apologies for the gun fight challenge. There is no justice here because of nepotism crap. We just wanted it over so we can move on. But even though things were settled, we are always alert, i can't come home late, i have to be home early, because i might get shot or my dad or just any one of us. We can't let our guard down even up to now.

Pretty long story huh? there's another story involving our cat shooting neighbor. it was just last november 2009 i think, that another neighbor of ours here, beside their house, also just by the front of our house was found dead on his door step, shot and was left for dead, but he on his dying breathe managed to write down the name of his killers. The name of the cat shooting neighbor's son and nephew. we heard 5 gunshots at around 9 pm the night of the killing.

This area that we moved to is really beautiful, a lot of trees and really quite, the air is fresh, no pollution. but behind that still beauty is a very dark world.

PAYPAL isn't really your pal.

Thank God you got a GREAT PAL, who would help you in getting your PAY.

/cornfield




Tell Miko (even though he does not know me), I'm thankful, he's doing you a great favor.

Much love! :blowkiss:
