Desert's Commission Post. ₯○ⁿꜟ!DahGayseXY 76[Last 50 Posts]

#Accepting Commission

The stand has been opened for commissions!
Want something drawn? I'll draw it.
I am open to drawing any subject matter.
Adult themes may tend to cost more than regular pieces.

I am very open to drawing any and all subject matters, including those whose views and interests do not reflect my own. If you are interested in me producing some work, please shoot me a message via the note system.

I only post works on this website if you give me permission after final payment is received, and you have given me permission to post it. I respect my customer's purchases.

I request that at least 50% of the total price be given at the time of starting the commission, and the remaining 50% be given upon time of completion. You will not receive the final product until payment is received via paypal and transferred accordingly to my bank account, which may take 3 to 4 days after sending payment. I charge for last minute changes, such as telling me to redraw/change something near the end of the commission an additional $10.00 per change. If you are not clear about something, and do not bring it to my attention soon enough after I present to you a thumbnail, you will be charged if I am told to fix it later on after further progress is made. If I am told promptly, there will be no additional charge.
If you are unable to pay the remaining balance, I do not do refunds if I have made what I consider significant progress. I will keep what I have worked on until you finish paying the remaining balance. If you do not pay the remaining balance, I will claim or destroy the product. I will not return your money.
If I have not made what I consider significant progress, only then in this situation I will return your payment.

Significant progress to me is based on time spent on a commission, as well as overall progress. If I'm still sketching your commission for a painting/lineart, I do not consider this significant progress. If I have made layers upon layers for various subjects/backgrounds/linearts and am well beyond sketching for any work, I will not return your money. You have been warned.

I work flat rates on 10"x7.5" frames. If you want to discuss a different size, then expect different prices.
Some people have asked about comic panels. I have not worked out pricing on these yet. Expect them soon.

I will make a .gif for you of any combinations of sprites/renders I create for +$1.00 per frame.
!18+ Adult oriented works (Need age verification, please):
-One subject = (type of work selection)+$30.00
(ex. Digital Painting w. Adult = 60.00 + 30.00 = $90.00 for one subject)
-Multiple subjects = (type of work selection)+30.00 for each additional subject

I provide updates on works by providing a low-res screenshot thrumbnails of the WIP.

You will receive with each purchase, emailed after payment:
-The original art files, as intact as I can make them (.SAI, .PSD)
-A PNG24 of the final image in high-resolution.
-A JPG of the final image in high-resolution.
-A JPG of the final image in low-resolution.
-Complete ownership of any and all works I receive. I only ask you give me credit as the artist (I may request NOT to as well for adult works).

I will send these through dropbox, emails, etc.

This is at 200DPI
That basically makes it blown up twice as big as that size.

Okay… First off, amazing artwork. I really love your stuff. It has a wonderful feeling of depth and complexity.

Second, as someone who is primarily interested in drawing the human form, I have to ask you: How long did it take until you began to be happy with your work, at least to the extent that you didn't feel like throwing every sketch and drawing into a fire? Also, how did you get there?

Meet!DahGayseXY 660

File: 1346497642421.jpg (2.67 MB, 1283x1591, tsukimaru.jpg)

Thanks for the comment.
I'm never happy with my work, honestly. There's always a need in me to improve anything and everything. There are a lot of times where I want to throw my work into a fire, just like with this one I'm showing you.

But to be blunt. I've been taking art classes for years and years. Life drawing, which is drawing naked people, really boosted my understanding of anatomy.
Every college has them. I'd highly recommend taking one.

FPP 741

Instead of being typing a wall of text, which greatly bores me and my grammar skills, I shall put few small explanations only mere sentences, and you could reply, and I could add more until I get the whole picture after piece by piece. Is that ok with you?

FPP 742



Can the ponies be show-accurate, but also somewhat realistic?

Can Lucas be like realistic and slightly gravely, like he's in war-times, but have some kind of flair that shows a MOTHERly charm? (MOTHER means the game series, Mother and mother is a mother)

FPP 743


And do you mind me showing a lot of music and videos, since that's what In need to set you for.

FPP 744



Should be a merged, but conflicting title along with this:


MOTHER 3's is wood breaking out of metal, like nature vs. invasive technology

FPP 747

Lucas is 15ish btw, but he's a quite a bit healthier than an average 15-year old.

(No junk food, no excessive eating, and no tech, and constant exercise from his older twin brother would tend to do that)

FPP 748


Lucas is thin, but not wiry.

His weight is healthy, That's all I can say.

FPP 749


Also, you need to watch a LP a bit.

Dabble a bit here:

FPP 750


And are you good at typography?


File: 1348544290888.jpg (45.22 KB, 529x374, Lucasponyidea.jpg)

I can do all of this. Don't worry about that.


Oh, right, be sure to tell me what you think of that. I'll be unavailable to continue it until tuesday night; I've got college exams I need to study for.

FPP 754


Did I say he was a pony? Or even going to be?

Don't draw so fast before I even have the general concept out.

Maybe I should post later in more details.

FPP 755

Otherwise it's good art. But it's not what I want.

You know this?

Ignore the character and the BG.

you notice the pattern of text, as if it was half-chronological?

I want that pattern (not the words themselves), but instead, it's left to right, not down.


FPP 756


Well, you see, I really want to refer to this:


as the first picture on the 'timeline'

at 10:50 I think.

No, I don't think you should color the first picture, since I'm talking from the POV from Lucas.

Understand, what I basically want is a timeline of Claus and Lucas' life, not detailed, but there shoud be a picture every 1 or 2 years until age of 12. Not done explaining yet.

FPP 757


Well… You see…

It begins with Lucas' life, and ends with Lucas' arrival.

Each childhood picture of Lucas and Claus would be more detailed than the last, and the most detailed of all would be Lucas when he was 12 and/or present day Lucas.


That is um..
That is a lot more than I think Anonthony and I bargained for in the commission process. I'll have to talk this over with him. Not saying I can't do any of that, but provided the budget, I'm pretty sure this overshoots the contract him and I shared by quite a substantial amount. I'll get back to you on this.


Well you did say this:
>Can the ponies be show-accurate, but also somewhat realistic?
>Can Lucas be like realistic and slightly gravely, like he's in war-times, but have some kind of flair that shows a MOTHERly charm? (MOTHER means the game series, Mother and mother is a mother)

I'm confused, is this character a pony or a human? I'd like it if you could be more specific, and keep your posts more condensed. It can be very confusing reading multiple posts that jump around on what I'm drawing.
Also, again, I'm not sure if Anonthony and I agreed to such a large scale project. We were aiming more towards simple subject matters. However, if he gives the okay, we can do this. Of course, you realize, this is on his dime.

FPP 763

Hm. Well, Lucas is human. And I have several other projects in mind if it's a limited kind.

FPP 764


The thing, I might be putting a lot of ideas, but it doesn't exactly translate to drawing them all.

FPP 767


And you mind showing me your largest completed project?

Anonthony!EEEEEEEE2c 768

Hey FFP bro, what the dealio was in the contest was a subject or two colored lineart.

>I'm not sure if Anonthony and I agreed to such a large scale project. We were aiming more towards simple subject matters. However, if he gives the okay, we can do this. Of course, you realize, this is on his dime.
Have you ever, as a child, been into a sweet shop and found the pic and mix? You'll find it at Cinema mostly.
>Loads of Penny Sweets charging extortionate prices for them?
Now, when you're a kid… You want to fill that bag with everything! You want all the sweets you can have. If your father says: "Go buy something!" you don't worry about the cost of things, you fill the bag up and daddy has to take out a loan.
>Though, I've been taught economic principles and the value of saving since I was a little girl. Grandad was an insurance salesman (Retired, not dead) so I had to learn it all.

Swap the candy shop for a good artist, swap the sweets for drawings… You get this scenario.
We're all children at heart.

Do you mind listing all needed specifications? You were very vague before and this is the source of the confusion.


We apologize for that. In hindsight, we should have specified further.

Contest winners will receive a 20"x15" coloured lineart, with their choice of one to two characters and a background. You can swap out a second character for some fancy detailed lettering, if you wish. Works that follow this style look like:

Funny story: when I was a kid, I lived near a candy store, My uncle was the owner. One time he asked me to scoop up any candy I wanted. my mom was there, telling me to go ahead. But I waited, as if I didn't see him. My uncle's patience ran out And he decided to scoop up the candy for me and put it in a bag to give to me. later that day, my mom asked why. I said 'He Big Hands, me little.'

Well until you guys can work something out:


This is my new tumblr.

FPP 778


Can I ask for a sketch (Before we move on to final drawing, to see if I'm satsified) of Lucas hammering down a wood T on a big rolling hill, with the T-shirt of Claus (which is yellow and blue compared to Lucas' yellow and red) put over the T, moving in the wind along with Lucas' shirt, which Lucas is wearing. Lucas is human. Lucas has a dirty shovel partially drived into the ground, along with a dusty shirt and dirt-spotted face, Lucas has a expression on his face that told volumes of tragedy. (make it really good) Flint, his father is by his side, holding Lucas' shoulder.

In the background, lies most of Ponyville, with the mane 6's living places the most prominent.

On the T , there should be a Courage Badge hung over the shirt.

FPP 779


Got it.
That is doable.

FPP 781

Make it a SIMPLE sketch, since I don't want to waste your efforts drawing something close to the end, and then canceling it.

FPP 796


SInce you're not replying, I'm lsiting my other sketch ideas:

Lucas, running away from RD, with Lucas really close to the foreground, but all of his body can be seen. Angle Shot, Worm's Eye view. (means tower shot)

A movie poster?

I'll add more, since I'm not sure fi you'll reply.

The!GummyfZBao 798

I need you to pick one thing, and not change it. You're making this very complicated for me, and I would ask you to slow down. I have already started the rolling hill picture. If I'm going to start over, then Anonthony will owe more payment, and I do not think he wants to do that. Please keep in mind that this was meant to be simple, not your personal magnum opus project. If that were the case, I would have had you sign contracts, and I would have refused to do anything with a copyrighted character as well.

I am asking you to give me a little more respect and patience.

I've been very busy, and I am not always available to give updates. I ask for you to be patient, please.

The!GummyfZBao 799

Also I am not sure why you are asking for such sketches when the prize was clearly defined as a colored line art.

One part, a small future tweak. You know Lucas' nose? Make sure to line it later in a way that shows the curve of the nose more than the bottom part of the nose. Not asking much.

When explaining complicated stuff or just about anything that makes you use a lot of words… Limit yourself to 30.

FPP 831


Really, the ONLY thing left that I feel a bit egh, is that Lucas' mouth should be a bit more subtle.

Since two things:

1. This had happened before with his mom, so death is not so new to Lucas.

2.Claus made peace with Lucas before he died.

Lucas still will have a frown, though, just more as old aching/grief.

FPP 832


Other than that, NOTHING.

>>I've been watching this thread just to see how long this takes… And maybe some other reasons relating to Discord.

This is taking a long time, only because I'm currently very busy with school and it's actually a relatively complex piece. Believe me when I say that I probably should have not accepted this as a project for the prize; it's well beyond what Anonthony wanted done, but I have a fault in which I tend to be very nice about some things and appreciate a decent challenge.
Not sure what you mean by Discord.

Okay, see, I need to also add that Coco brought up a really good point. Besides the fact that Flint doesn't have a beard, it's been shaven since the piece began. Flint's already finished and we're already working on background touch-ups. ]
If you've ever bothered to read my OP posts, I charge extra for these sort of things. It's not very considerate to be told to do something differently when you've been led on for the entire process that something you did was correct (which, as I understand, it still is). This requires rethinking Flint's facial features. If I just slapped on a beard, it'd look cheesey and out of place. Facial hair adds an element to the overall build of his emotional display, which needs to be taken into account into his characteristics, much beyond "add brown here".
I'm sorry, but you waited way too long to tell me this, and we've already pushed this project's potential budget well past what it should have been. I'm not being paid extra to do what I'm doing for you already, so I'd appreciate it if you were more understanding of what exactly I'm trying to do here. Being told that I need to rework something not only confuses me, but actually makes me reconsider how much effort I'm putting in this for you, on my own accord. It doesn't make me feel very appreciated, and honestly, a little walked over.

You're going to have to discuss the whole beard thing with Anonthony. Again, though, I'll reinforce, that Flint never had a beard at all, in any canon, from my understanding. If he did, I would have drawn it, believe me. I do play vidya, and I do research when I take on projects like this.

I've noticed how complex it is. Hence why I've been watching it. It adds an element of… Discord.
Ever wonder if your virtue of being too generous and kind is more of a vice? I'd be honoured to be treated to such kindness as yourself.
Generosity is a fine Virtue, but if you rewatch Art of the Dress then you can see its inherent flaw.

I'd like to note that the Contest Winners were announced on the 24th of September. It is now the 22nd of October. This has gone on for a month, Rarity.

While it's great to embody kindness, I hope you don't lose sight of your heart for the sake of others.

Okay, I just try not to be rude, It's hard to express it properly on the internet.

As the granddaughter of an insurance salesman… I recommend something:
Compliment sandwich.

Say something good before saying anything bad… And end on a high note. An example:

To start off, I have to say that the picture is amazing. The image is shaded well, giving a lot of detail and depth to it. The shading is by far my favourite part of the picture, brilliant in all ways.
I regret in saying this, but the mustache seems to pale in comparison to the rest of the image. It's not terrible in any way, shape or form. Yet there is the minor problem of a detail shift. Though again, this would not be noticeable if the image wasn't so well done.
Though something I love about it is the blending of colours and the mastery over the bane of an artist's existence… Hands. If I could draw a hand remotely as good as you then I'd consider myself a skilled artist.
This is a truly amazing piece of artwork, Desert/Gummy. Your talent amazes me.

No less than $150.
Going off my charts, I mean.

And yeah, they are for something special to me. A project I've been working on for several years that I've been writing and planning out on the side for.

It's a dark fantasy aimed at exploring the inevitability of necessary darkness; such powers coming to rise and upholding the balance of the ever shifting cosmos, as the tides off good and evil clash from the beginnings 'till the ends of time. It explores the questioning of one's predisposed destiny, the fallacies of godhood and religion, and the ceaseless human struggle to fear what we do not understand.
There are several major character symbolizes an aspect of human morality that has been portrayed to some extreme, each proposing a question towards what is good and what is evil.
The story itself, wherein the part I wish to focus upon first, follows the tale of two sworn brothers in arms, unrelated by blood but bonded through spirit, as they explore the ancient and primitive world and find themselves as pawns in a game designed by the divine. To what end is made uncertain, as alliances shift and betrayals are made, secrets are uncovered and revelations of morality come into play.
But I could go on all day about it.

It's also one massive analogy for my life and inner struggles. A lot of personal experiences have gone into the characters I've created. They're numerous in amount, diverse in personality, and each one is special to me.

Close Combat Specialist. Devastating close ranged AoE and CQC attacks.
Cannot use ranged ki attacks unless they are absorbed and returned. Requires hands to absorb ki/impact. Absorbed energy adds to his own base power level, and can be either kept or exerted. Can use absorbed ki to regrow a limb.
