100 sketches - $5 a piece - Towards Laptop Fund (still, haha) - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
100 sketches - $5 a piece - Towards Laptop Fund (still, haha)
I've seen quite a few people doing this, and since I'm still saving up for that new computer I figured why not?

Enter 100 sketch commissions for $5 a piece. That's right, fi-dollas (plus $0.46 in paypal fees) gets you a silly toony doodle by me :)

Rules (Please read please read please read please read....)

If you want one, comment here with the following info:

Text Description (means no 'see description image' please!):
Links to Reference images:

-Please send payment of $5.46 via Paypal to my account (thornwolf227@gmail.com). INCLUDE YOUR LJ NAME SO I KNOW WHO THE PAYMENT IS FOR! If your name is not included, your payment will be returned to you and your spot given to the next commenter in the queue, because I can't keep track of these things without some hint of who you are. Free Sketch Day taught me that lesson and I do not want to repeat it. D:

-Please don't forget to add the $0.46 in fees, I'm doing these for cheap and don't really wanna have to deal with Paypal taking their cut out of my work.

-I will not be shipping these. You will receive the scan like the Free Sketch Day sketches (I'll comment it to you and post it on the original LJ entry next to your name).

-You are welcome to color them if you so wish! My icon is something I colored from agouti-rex's $5 sketches so, I'm totally cool with it too :D

-If you haven't paid within 1 week of reserving your spot, your spot will go to the next person in the queue

-These sketches will be quick and will consist of ONE CHARACTER ONLY with no background, possibly a prop if I feel it fitting (suggestions welcome in the description, I may or may not use it though). Nothing overly complicated, please! Max PG13 rating, same goes for refs. If your ref pokes me in the eye with its giant throbbing dong, well, don't send me that ref, cuz I'll be doing these wherever I am (Panera, Starbucks, boyfriend's mother's couch..that sort of thing). Boobs are fine, cuz well, I imagine Starbucks is the type of place to like boobs.

-I will be completing these relatively quickly, so I won't be showing any progress, just the final sketch. But please, give me adequate time to complete these. I /will/ finish all of them, please be patient :) If you're curious on the progress, check the original LJ post, I'll be posting them as I complete them here so you can see where I am progress-wise.

*SPECIAL BONUS* For EVERY $100 earned (whether through sketch commissions or donations, yes donations are still welcome if you're feeling generous and wanna help me get my computer still, in which case you're just awesome) up until I fill my 100th slot, I will pick ONE random commenter from the list and do a digital speed painting of their character. So you very well have the chance to get a doodle and a separate color pic for a meager $5. Cool huh?

So yeah, thank you! :3

Unrelated: Personal gifts don't get fees?! D:

I copied that bit from agouti-rex, so I'm assuming not? I mean that would be pretty shitty of them to take fees out of your gift from Gramma or something. If something comes up I'll say something.
quatres_star From: quatres_star Date: August 27th, 2009 12:56 am (UTC) (Link)
Name: Star
Species: Canine - German shepherd dog
Text Description (means no 'see description image' please!): Star is a liver colored German shepherd dog. The right ear stands erect like a normal GSD ear but the left ear is floppy.

Damn it. I forgot to add my name to the payment, I'm really sorry >.< it's coming from DaKate(@)gmail if that helps at all to avoid it being returned : /

Why not. I can easily drop $5. =)

I think rather'n do an image I might let you use your imagination. I knows you can draw good rats.

Name: Secharik
Species: Rat (anthro)
Text description: Somewhat thin build, though with a bit of paunch. Moustache, primarily horizontal with just a touch of downward hook. Blue-grey mage's robe (generally similar in design to pic B. Don't be a slave to it though, and solid color works great). He should be sitting down, inspecting his foot as if he's just found something horribly odd about it (the more of the fleshy bottom the viewer sees, the better for me). Kinda WTF/slightly annoyed expression.

As a rough idea, I've grabbed a pic of Basil while disguised as a sailor in Great Mouse Detective. Just as a general 'body' and facial guide, feel free to take a little liberty beyond the desc stuff. I more than encourage it!

Dang it, I need to remember how to embed images. ...

I'll grab a pic quick as I can and edit it in. And I'll send payment along.

Reference pic, naturally he's the one to the right:

Are human characters acceptable? I skimmed your gallery but I couldn't find many examples, so I figured it was worth asking whether you are comfortable with them...
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: August 27th, 2009 01:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah I am traditionally, but I admit I haven't drawn many humans in my toony style in particular but I sure as hell can try if you're comfortable with letting me!
tom_leo From: tom_leo Date: August 27th, 2009 01:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Name: Tomleo
Species: Cat
Text Description: Nothing specific to worry about. Just furry black cat standing on two paws. I'd say he's maybe a little bit skinny.
Links to Reference images: None :(

They're actually more like my toony stuff like these badges:

Lemme know if you're still interested, if not I understand too :)
tyrrlin From: tyrrlin Date: August 27th, 2009 01:40 am (UTC) (Link)
I'd like one, please.

Name: Tyrrlin
Species: Gryphon
Text Description: Tyrrlin is an average-sized gryphon, muscular/stocky rather than narrow. Her 'burd' coloring is a medium-cinnamon brown shading. The front of her neck and chest are white with brown speckles, and her beak and cere are browny-golden. Her most outstanding feature is her crest. It's somewhat long and flame red/golden in color. Her front feet are eagle's feet and talons, same color as the beak with black talons, though somewhat handlike with a double-jointed type thumb.

Tyrrlin's wings are large, darkish cinnamon brown on top with the last set of pinions red. The middle coverts are golden in color. The undersides of her wings are brown and the last set of pinions are a soft white with brown banding (middle under-coverts can also be gold). She has a lion's tail with tailfeathers at the tip. The tail feathers mimic a darker version of Tyrrlin's crest...flame red-golden.
Her lion half is a typical golden-brown/caramel lion color with a white belly.

Yays! I can afford it this time! =D

Name: HollyAnn
Species: Fox (vixen)
Text Description (means no 'see description image' please!): Early 30's, 5ft 2", plus-sized (but not overly "big"), with oval glasses. Was thinking on having Holly wearing my SCA garb (white chemise, blue surcoat, bracers, with belt around her waist), holding a viking drinking horn full of mead, as if to say "3 cheers for mead!!" You can draw her hair however you like, have fun with it :)

timbrfawks From: timbrfawks Date: August 27th, 2009 02:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Name: Faelan Foxtail
Species: Silver Fox
Description: black ears and tail with white tip, soft short black fur covering his body, bi-pedal and digitgrade, he wears loose canvas style pants, no pockets, he has shoulder wraps as well as around his waist, prominent whiskers and walks with a staff and slightly hunched over.
Links: First picture is from a game that he is inspired from, the second are clothing references. You'd be the first to do an official sketch. There was another but she never finished though I paid.
The staff won't look like that but just like a gnarled piece of wood, natural, uncut (officially still undesigned)
I love the shoulder and waist/thigh wraps, he does have a cloak, though don't worry about sketching it.

He's a character in a story I'm putting together and been needing someone to do a sketch of him.
akelavincent From: akelavincent Date: August 27th, 2009 02:37 am (UTC) (Link)


Name: Robidoux
Species: Catahoula Leopard Dog
Text Description (means no 'see description image' please!): Robidoux is a Cajun charmer type (a la Gambit from the X-Men), and also a Cajun musician, therefore likely to have an accordion, trombone, harmonica, etc. on hand at any given moment. He's supposed to be a fun character, so have fun with it!

ooh me please, two if that's ok
Me and the bear :)

man I really need model sheets already *lazy*

Well it's simple blobby versions of us but you get the idea of overall body markings:
This one has more normal faces for us though

forgot to say thanks!
And sorry it's another wolf LOL :P
spiritwolven From: spiritwolven Date: August 27th, 2009 03:32 am (UTC) (Link)

Name: Spirit Wolf
Species: Um a wolf.
Text Description (means no 'see description image' please!): he is a grey wolf with a rainbow spectrum belt around the middle of his tail. I would like maybe something kinda epic sort of battle pose of him in his quincy outfit. but if it is a little less epic pose it would be funny too. if you will add a prop he summons a bow out of energy

the outfit

spiritwolven From: spiritwolven Date: August 29th, 2009 04:43 am (UTC) (Link)
acctually you mentioned earlier to another buyer about a full sketch for 20 and that gets shipped out. if that would be better for this character we could go with that
keesh From: keesh Date: August 27th, 2009 04:13 am (UTC) (Link)
Put me down for two!! One of my RR wolf char with a mouse and another one of him pouncing on a snake. ^.^

Will send money in the morn.
