Look everyone!  I'm a hater for telling someone to not steal artwork from Pixiv artists!  I'm such a SYBURBULLEEEEEE BAD LLAMA.

Hey there, all.  So here's the thing.  I've got quite a bit of free time on my hands, and money's getting a little tight.  Plus, drawing stuff for folks is always fun.

As such, I will very likely be doing commissions in the near future.  But before I do that, I was wondering if I could get some tips and guidance from folks who have done commissions before.

Like, how do you determine what you charge?  How do you avoid overloading yourselves?  Are you specific in what you'll do commissions on (i.e., only OCs) or will you draw anything/everything?  How did you psyche yourself up to be confident enough to DO commissions?

Not sure how to put this clearly.  But if this is in your inbox and you've done commissions before, I'd greatly appreciate you sharing your experience so that I can get started myself!

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day, too!
Two Best Friends Play: Shin Eddie by EnvySkort
Two Best Friends Play: Shin Eddie
So I'm watching the Two Best Friends playthrough of Silent Hill 2 (which they are burning through like crazy at the moment) and they've had a lot of fun analyzing (and making fun of) the slovenly anti-Adonis by the name of Eddie, who is at one point seen gorging himself on not one, but two pizzas.  Where'd he get pizzas in Silent Hill?  Hell if I know.  Anyway, Eddie is a crazy psychopathic manchild with a crippling persecution complex and a growing appreciation for "standing up for himself" by means of shooting anyone he perceives to be making fun of him (the crazy asshole even admits to killing a dog because it looked at him funny).

As such, Eddie has been a topic of great discussion in the Youtube comments, particularly a certain commenter who joked that the true final boss for the game is "Shin-Eddie," sort of like Shin-Akuma from Street Fighter in that he's got god-mode, SNK-boss-level powers.  It's more of a joke, really, since Eddie is a fat, ugly, lying, useless pile of garbage and every scene he's in shows just how pathetic he truly is.  On the other hand, he's clearly mentally unbalanced which makes him somewhat of an unnerving threat when you face him as a boss later in the game, at which point, he has killed a number of other people and justified their murders by saying they were making fun of him.

Sorry if I'm losing you folks who've never played Silent Hill 2, but long story short, the fans jokingly created a character, and my fiance encouraged me to give drawing him a shot.  So here you go, whether you understand it or not.

31 DAYS OF MAGICAL GIRLS - DAY 31 by EnvySkort
31 DAYS OF MAGICAL GIRLS - DAY 31
WE'VE FINALLY MADE IT TO THE END OF THE MAGICAL GIRL CHALLENGE

HOLY CRAPS I DID IT

DIDN'T MISS ONE SINGLE DAY

So here's Day 31, which was a "freebie" day meaning I had to come up with something on my own other than the themes listed for previous days.  My fiance and I had both shot ideas back and forth about what else should be on the list, and we both agreed that an emotion-based magical girl could be kinda cool so that's what I went with today.

Because really, there's a ton of stuff to choose from with emotions.  Envy, anger, joy, etc.  So I went with sadness.  Yeah, a bit of a depressing way to close out my highly successful Magical Girl Challenge, but she was fun to design.

Thanks for noting the art thief problem I'm currently dealing with. The only thing I wish DA had now was a "report deviant" option. Not just "report art" or "report comment". Report Deviant would make finding and banning art thieves much easier.

That's how it used to be many years ago.

There used to be an option at the Help Desk for reporting art thieves.  All you had to do was include the person's name, a list of the stolen artwork and the original sources of the artwork, and it'd get taken care of within a few days. 

But I can imagine, considering the rampant theft around here, that the staff (who are mostly volunteers) got swamped with reports and needed to streamline things to eliminate that backlog.  That's why nowadays, only original artists can file DMCA reports to get stolen artwork taken down.  The "Report Deviation" feature works every so often, but the DMCA has more clout.  Which is a double-edged sword, since some original artists are inactive or have unfortunately passed away and thus cannot file them, which means that any work of theirs that gets stolen may remain up on thieves' accounts.
