Kai's Saiyan Forms... by Kai1984

I hope you don't mind the idea of someone you've never met giving you a critique :) I just felt that, if you put in the work to do somet...

Hello. I draw manga. I'm constantly trying to get better. So if you see something in my newest art that I'm doing wrong often, tell me.

In case you're looking to ask me to do commission work for you, below are some guidelines for them. NOT OPEN FOR REQUESTS AT THE MOMENT! (I'm soon setting up all of the necessary stuff to do so correctly):

1. No hardcore gore. I'm fine with lots of blood (though not necessarily good at it), or missing limbs, as long as it isn't supposed to come off as disturbing.

2. No nudity or 'love making'. Kissing's fine, as are other innocent things, but I don't do anything that's actually sexual. I'm also not really into doing things like unrealistically giant breasts, or those creepy 'extremely obese blob' characters and such.

3. If there are speech bubbles, no excessive cussing. That's kind of self-explanatory.

4. In other words... lets try to keep things at a teenage or lesser level please (though if you have an idea you are unsure about, run it by me anyway).

Other things to keep in mind are that I'm still in the mid-to-late intermediate stages, so I might not be able to do exactly what you want, due to skill limitations. I'll warn you ahead of time if I might have a difficult time, and we can work harder to get something you're happy with. Animals are something that I haven't really practiced much, mechs are beyond me at the moment (though I am currently practicing that), and I'm still in the beginners stages of digital coloring. I'm not necessarily a 'beginner' at doing backgrounds, but I haven't really tried them for a few years, so keep that in mind as well. If you haven't already, I strongly suggest looking through my gallery to see if I'm capable of doing what you want. If not, then I can probably direct you to some (much more talented) people who might be be willing to draw what you want.

The last thing to keep in mind is that, I won't do any commission work with copy-written characters (that you or I don't own). If I know you well enough, or you ask nice enough, I might be willing to do a free request with copy-written characters. But I'd prefer to stay on the right side of the law :)

After consulting many different people, I came to the conclusion that I should be doing commission at an hourly rate (starting at $8/640dA points an hour to be exact, as that's about minimum wage). You tell me what you want, and I'll figure out approximately how long that will take me to do. In order to keep less-trustworthy people from stealing my work without paying, I will require that half of the money is paid up front. After we decide on a concept you like and get everything down, I'll do the finished product, and send it to you (at a size of your choosing) via e-mail. There is no charge for materials, as everything is done digitally :)

I also won't hike the price up if I have difficulty with the project, or if it takes me longer than expected. The price we agree on in the beginning will NOT go up! Though if I feel the total price of something will end up unfairly high for what type of picture you want, I'm willing to discount the price a bit to be fair to you, since you're my beloved customer :D If for whatever reason, I am unable to finish your request, I will return any and all money you have already given for the project.

I know, I make things hard, lol. But in order to keep things in the realm that I'm comfortable in, and make the best art I can for people, I need to impose some sort of limitations.

If you like my gallery, please donate to my donation pool so that I can get a nice Color Wheel for Photoshop Elements. It's very VERY much appreciated. And if you give enough, I'll even try to draw something just for you since you've shown you love me so much :D

So this is the thing I've been working on for a while now... I started a YouTube channel!

It's not a channel about art, but rather about video games. For now it's going to primarily be a review/editorial channel, but who knows where it could go from there? If you have the time (and interest), I'd greatly appreciate you stopping by the first video. If you feel compelled, maybe you could even Like, Subscribe, Comment, and share it with all of your friends (shameless plug FTW!) :D

  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: Black Fate - Lines in the Sand
  • Reading: Review scripts
  • Watching: Rated S for Sandwich
  • Playing: Black Ops II, Sims 3, Sonic Generations
  • Eating: Big cookie!
  • Drinking: VVater ;)

Tralalalala, I'm on the app right now so I don't think I can send you a note, so here I am ~
ZaXo-KenIchi Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
The app doesn't allow sending notes? Hmm, I guess it's not that big a deal that my iPod is too old to use it then, lol. Do you think it could at least reply to a note if one is sent to you?

As for a collaboration, that'd depend on the idea itself, as well as how much time it'll take. I'm usually pretty busy, though if being a bit slow isn't an issue I could probably find the time :)

Totally not an issue! :'D
ZaXo-KenIchi Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Alrighty then. I'll send you a note to see if you can receive it in the app. If not, then feel free to reply to it whenever you can access your notes.
