I'm still looking for artists who can draw (((Feral Pokemon x Human))) art.

Candyfoxy comes to mind but it's pretty expensive, especially if there are three characters in a shot. (Plus I'm not sure if they even draw humans or if it's ferals and furries only.)



>(((Feral Pokemon x Human)))

>((( )))

The fuck is this shit?



Not sure if their style is your thing but I know of this person who charges $35 at most for that.




new (((feature))) from CodeMonkey


<can code



A /pol/ meme that CM added to the markup. The implementation is awful, but that's to be expected of Chodemonkey.

The only thing it's good for is

Thank you!

They're good. They do that trainer-(name) style that's popular on Tumblr. Affordable but the art is kinda... Tumblr-y for my tastes. Still definitely gonna check them out if I can't find anyone else by the end of the month.

Anyone else have suggestions?



Same anon as >>33899 here. There's also this person I found. Prices start at $40, $50 for 2 characters.




(((How about)))

I'm not even a /pol/tard, I just find the uniform really attractive.



Check the draw threads, and not just here but on other popular boards. Just say you're looking to commission someone and you'll either get 8ch artists that are obviously willing to draw that, or you'll get people that have commissioned from 8ch artists in the past.



You have to be tricky about it. First of all, you have to find an artist that doesn't have a distinctive style and isn't well-known. Nobody's going to draw something that will socially damage them if it can easily be connected back to them.

Secondly, ask them to draw the uniform but without any of the real-life insignia. They might be willing to draw a nazi uniform if it doesn't actually have swastikas or the SS symbols on it.

I know your pain, it enrages me like you can't even imagine, I'm still getting discriminated about it, I have an OC which happens to be really into domination, so I decided to give them a nazi uniform to better reflect their role (big mistake, don't do it, ever, choose something else, anything), which it's totally unrelated to my real life ideologies, which happens to be the exact opposite of nazism.

However, these shithead artists take it personally and as revenge tend to fuck up, go lazy or sloppy on my commissions on purpose after getting my money, if I compare their other commissions, the quality is always much better than mine, I bet they feel like the """"good guys"""" because they """"taught me a lesson"""", that I deserve it because I'm the """"nazi"""", this double standard thinking (pretending to be tolerant but actually acting exactly like a nazi) should stop, it's totally illogical and stupid if they don't get it that they're actually the bad guys if they act like that, I always acted civilized and polite, paying them the paypal fees which I'm not even obliged to, never be obnoxious or put them in a hurry, giving as much artistic freedom as possible, etc.



>big mistake, don't do it, ever, choose something else, anything

So why don't you change the uniform now??



Just find similar Boss clothes that are commercially available



Unfortunately it's already on the ref sheet and many other commissions, I realized late that artists were passive aggressive for that reason.



So you're contractually obligated to continue using every trait of this character as-is, even if it causes you difficulty? Just get a new ref sheet and trash those old commissions.

Theres actually no way they can enforce the "I retain ownership of the finished piece" because you've paid for a product they had to deliver. It's an even stronger case if they used copyrighted characters. I've had to go against two artists that tried this and they couldn't do shit.

Dope, thanks fam.

Have some more refs/etc if you want 'em.



I honestly wonder if a furry porn artist would have a chance in court trying to sue a commission buyer. That drawing of dogfucking or some clearly underage kid taking a dick probably isn't going to win the judge over, and without anything on file via the trademark or copyright offices, well... that whole "copyrighted upon creation" isn't proven by magic and telepathy, it needs something on paper. And if it does have a character owned by a major company? I don't think you can even fully own such a drawing.

It's just a shitbag move by artists who think they should get money and creative rights both.

>"I retain ownership of the finished piece"

I don't understand this mentality anyway. I've been considering eventually taking commissions, and if I did, the only thing I'd be interested in controlling about a commissioned piece of artwork is maintaining my right to keep the piece on my gallery as a portfolio item. (And even then I'd be willing to waive that right for an additional fee, for people who really really want their commissioned art to remain private) As long as I can do that, I wouldn't give a shit what the customer chooses to do with it.


yeah, it's absurd, because afaik under (US) copyright law a commissioned piece of artwork results in the artist and commissioner jointly holding copyright on it, meaning neither party can stop the other from doing what they want with it. (Not sure what happens if one of them wants to sell the copyright to a third party or whatever, though)



>a commissioned piece of artwork results in the artist and commissioner jointly holding copyright on it

there was a massive issue on Sofurry over this, a commission buyer added some text to a drawing so it could be used as a ref for other artists, and the artist flipped their shit about it. It got bad enough that SF staff consulted a US attorney specialized in copyright/trademark and got that exact answer. Several artists ragequit the site because they didn't like the law not coddling their "it's MY property" selfishness.

Though a contractual agreement prior to work beginning can overrule that but it must be agreed on properly, artists can't simply claim it after the fact. This is why you should avoid artists that state up-front they're keeping ownership.

Even though the buyer should get the artwork 100%, this shit needs to be reworded and worked into "work for hire" with no exceptions. The work only exists because the artist was hired to draw it. This shit even cases trouble over physical pieces of art, apparently if you commission a painting or a statue, it might be technically illegal to trade or destroy it because the artist retains part ownership. This has caused issues with artwork done on walls when a business owner wants to paint over it.


>Several artists ragequit the site because they didn't like the law not coddling their "it's MY property" selfishness.

For what purpose? It's not like the law won't follow them anywhere else.



most artists are only in it because they were born with their heads lodged deep in their assholes and only care about the praise they get, this is why they cause so much drama

Am really impressed by their work, /k/ furries might like this one.



>meme gun

>generic furry femboy 2,400,000

>flat face

It would honestly be more interesting if you commissioned a picture of the cat shoving the AA-12 up his ass.

How much did you pay for that?



The gun is terrible.

The boots are terrible.

The character is uninteresting.

I hope you didn't spend a fortune on that.



>meme gun

Meh, I wanted an (American)weapon that average US civilians can't get legally, to fit with her theme of being a gun runner. The AA-12 happened to fit that bill.

>generic furry femboy 2,400,000

She's not a femboy, though cats are pretty common, not much I can do about that.

>flat face

Kemono style usually look like that.

The commission was $55.




boots look like the laces are literal stickers


I've got some commissions I'm still waiting on but I'm worried it's been a few weeks since any update or contact. I just don't want to seem pushy.


>buying commissions when the internet is packed full of porn and other existing art

You can find what you need on Imagefap, Xhamster or even google image search, why waste money to create a new thing when what you want already exists? If furries need money, they can fill out a job application.




Looks like you got pretty jewed there imo, sorry for your loss



Absolute shit. I cannot believe you flushed that money down the toilet. And then you show it off like it is something to be proud of. You have no artistic, fashion, or economical sense.



>I wanted an (American)weapon that average US civilians can't get legally,

The AA-12 is street-legal as long as it's not fully-automatic.

>dragon with a canine penis



We're just sharing our opinions on art we think is overpriced, a simple sketch shouldn't be worth 50 or something where the lines or coloring is uneven. Art has become so overpriced in the fandom and that's because of the fags carelessly giving any amount of money to artists and setting a trend for other smaller artists.

I'll admit I have a bit of a knot-mania and gave one to Charizard even though it doesn't really fit.

I also have a thing for balloons.

Honestly, I'd order some balloon stuff if I knew any artists who'd be good at it.


Who drew this anyway? Why do artists insist on symbols or illegible signatures? It's fucking retarded.



People are saying that one pic is 'overpaying' when it's only 50 dollars, and the pic was actually (content opinion aside) pretty goddamn good. You do realize that IRL shit like that costs alot more, right? Illustrators don't come cheap.



$50 is basically the line between cheap and expensive when it comes to commissions.

In regards to furry commissions, $50 is definitely on the cheap end of things, but a lot of people (especially people who don't order commissions) will think it's a really high amount.


File: 8192114dbe5effa⋯.jpg (50.66 KB, 640x640, 1:1, eigohaioghea.jpg)


I get commissions all the time from $10 all the way up to my recent $88 dollar illustration that i'm waiting for.

In my honest opinion I don't find it worth $55 i'd probably pay $35 for something like that. One man's trash is another man's treasure.



I'm not saying it's worth $50, either. It's passable for $50. When you pay less, you expect a lower quality, but you also expect a higher variance in quality. When someone usually does great art for $20 but fucks up in a commission from time to time, it's usually expected and acceptable (assuming it's not a complete FUBAR).



Is it? I figured ATF had decided it didn't look "sporting" enough and was therefore in the same legal category as rocket launchers and artillery pieces.



>Doesn't know shit about guns

>Tries to appease /k/ommandos with a meme gun that's perfectly legal

You can own a tacticooled out rifle no problem as long as its semi auto. Hell you can even own fully automatic rifles if it was manufactured before a certain date (93 I think).

It's expensive but it's perfectly legal.


File: 68bbd64de9b3d2c⋯.jpg (47.71 KB, 500x375, 4:3, 64132489651.jpg)


>Art has become so overpriced in the fandom



First, I'm not the guy who commissioned the picture. For my part I agree that he paid too much for it, it's not particularly well detailed, and the AA-12 is a meme gun that he probably saw in an anime or game at some point.

Second, the AA-12 is a shotgun, not a rifle. The NFA calls any gun in a larger caliber than .50 (which includes both 20 and 12 gauge) a "destructive device". The ATF can and usually does grant exemptions to shotguns for "sporting purposes" but technically does so at its own discretion, and anything too militaristic in appearance and/or marketing is often rejected (see: SPAS-12, various Striker variants, though no one really cares because those are vidya gaem meme shotguns anyway). Given that a semi-auto AA-12 would be a conversion of a shotgun that was straight up specifically designed for military use, I'd expect the seller to fight an uphill battle to be deemed "sporting".

And if your argument is on the technicality of "legal", yes, in the US you could hypothetically own just about any weapon with oodles of money and a lot of bureaucratic nonsense. Too few people are willing to do that to sustain a viable market for most NFA items with the possible exception of suppressors.



You were arguing that the gun is illegal and now you're backpedaling saying that there are "too few people to sustain a viable market for most NFA items"

If there are too few people to sustain the market why are there so many active listings of NFA weapons on gunbroker that people have bought for upwards of thousands of dollars?

Don't underestimate, taxes don't matter when you have a gun that's wonderful to shoot especially to someone that's well off which most gun owners somewhat are.


We need to create a master list of artists both popufur and non for ease of access. I'm in a commissioning mood atm.



>50$ is the baseline

Lel I wonder if furries would pay up if someone charged double that amount as his hourly rate. Assuming no one else was offering the same things for cheaper, that is.



some no doubt would- the rich ones, the welfare leeches, the ones stealing from parents/family. No sane person would, not unless they could A) afford it and B) got full copyright of the finished piece to make and sell prints if they wished.

If the artist wants to keep ownership for an hourly rate of $50, they can contract cancer.


Yeah, you really deserve almost triple of a factory worker for drawing penises. Worse than fags like Poopiepie who think "playing video games" is "content creation" and suck up money from ad revenue for doing literally nothing.



>50$ per hour

I said double that amount. 100$ per hour.

And I don't see why not if there's already someone in the fandom who already gets roughly that amount. If someone can do a much better job than him for the same price, well, you'd be getting a big discount, wouldn't you think?

>but it's too much

This is your fault, not the fault of the guy asking for his work to be adequately rewarded.


Artists that charge hourly are scamming cunts.

This shit cost me $30, and that's on a discount because I get art all the time from Supplesee.

Seriously, people should stop being stupid fucking twats with their money and actually get artists that are worth the money and time rather than get art because "le popufur xD"



Some of those popufurs have pretty distinct styles, though.

I wonder:

Are there any artists that specialize in being able to copy other artists' styles?

I know some artists will usually say something along the lines of "I can try to match any style you tell me to", but I've never seen any of them that are actually of a high quality.



>Are there any artists that specialize in being able to copy other artists' styles?

A lot of popufurs copy off of each other.

Tojo with Narse, Jasonafuckhimself with Wolfynaileveryfemboyasswithahorsecock...



I know that much. I wonder if there are any unpopufurs that I could go up to and say "Hey, could you draw this in a Candyfoxy style?"

What about cub?

What about snuff?

What about excellent chibis feral and/or anthro?

What about feral non-Pokemon?

What about artists with a more simple art style?

(Any artist who fits one of the categories I want to hear about.)



Bumping this idea.

We need to create a list of artists with the prices of their fullbody commissions with all types of shading.


Asking for second opinions on the following:



http://nixotine.deviantart.com/gallery/: "Chibis are $20-$25 depending on character complexity and are shaded

Full bodies are $30-$35 depending on character complexity

And are shaded

Sketches are anywhere from $5-$15"



Immediately remove any of them that have a Tumblr. Then you'll be left with the good ones.

What's the source thread on these comments?



I just recently started doing commissions.

If I send someone an invoice and they include a shipping address (because Paypal took away the option to say No Address Required), is it true they can demand a refund and there's nothing I can do about it, because there's no way for me to prove the product was 'shipped'?




give this a shot and see if it stops giving them the option to give you a shipping so it removes that potential. because yes, if you let them provide shipping and they dispute it they automatically win

I know that plushies are a niche item but I figure I might as well ask:

I want to order a massive (30+ inches) plushie of an Arcanine.

Does anyone know any good plushie makers who might be able to handle such a tall order?

What kind of price would I be looking at? I'm willing to go up to $500.



>up to $500

kek you honestly believe you can get a CUSTOM MADE plushie that's 30+ INCHES for anything less than $500?

you're delusional mate

that being said, either etsy or FA will be your best bet

Art Slave Streams

Has anyone here had experience with these before?

Is 5 hours with an artist you like worth $100?

I'm mostly concerned about artists kicking their feet or being slow to start. I get that you can't just go 1-2-poof and summon up the perfect pose for things, but does the time limit give them an opportunity to waste time and deliver less than I'd be expecting?

I've got a huge list of pictures I've been wanting to order and it just occurred to me that this might be the best way to get lots of them done, at least in a sketch form.



There are several things that you must weigh in order to make art slave streams worth it.

1. In exchange for paying triple digit funds, the artist demonstrates good time management and the final pieces actually cost less than the normal rates.

2. To justify if the rates are premium compared to normal prices. If it's an exclusive event and taking it puts you ahead of 4 months worth of other clients in queue.

3. Even if you value quantity over quality, even the artist's non colored inks and sketches are top notch to your expectations.


Are there any artists that will provide a sketch or something before asking for payment?

Three times in a row I've been burned by artists who will take my money, show me a sketch that looks nothing like what I asked for (even if I provided visual references), and then they'll give me some bullshit "You only get three revisions in this phase so I'm going to charge you another $10 if you keep complaining".

I just want to work with an artist who will treat me like a human being who works hard to pay for these commissions and will give me the same amount of effort in return instead of what amounts t stealing my money then kicking me onto the floor, saying "Well you already paid me so I don't need to do shit". I just want to make sure the fucking pose is right before I have my money stolen. That's all I want. It's all I need.



Did you get cheap prices though?



Look on Furaffinity Forums and state those conditions, but without the guilt tripping "I work hard for my money" stuff.

Just say "Are there any artists who will do x thing but show me a sample sketch before requiring payment?"



if that's how you talk to artists you deserve to get burned tbh

Is it a good idea to do a bunch of requests to get followers and then start doing commissions? For the record I'm not desperate for money



Being paid for TIME rather than for RESULTS is the biggest mistake of all of capitalism. It punishes those who are better and rewards those who are worse.



What? That literally makes no sense.

If you're a better artist you can charge more/hr. If you're a shitty artist, less and less people will start putting up with your bad quality over time



>If you're a shitty artist, less and less people will start putting up with your bad quality over time

You think that's how it actually works?

I won an art slave auction.

How does this work? I've never done this before.



Firstly, who?

Secondly, have you previously observed how much progress the artist can do in an hour so that you can measure if he has the time to commit to X amount of commissions in the quality that you desire?

Thirdly, the more anal retentive you are about the pose/angle/background, the more the artist will spend time on it, and before you know it you only got one picture out of it. Thus, it's generally best to let the artist 'let loose' so long as the details of your characters are correct.

Fourth, be brief and direct about what you want in the commish. You can leave the backstory and what-have-you in the stream chats.

I want to share art done for me by an artist I like, but I don't want that artist to get popular because I enjoy the low prices and fast queues.

What do I do?



It's highly unlikely that the artist will get popular just from you singlehandedly posting a few of their works on a few websites.



Who is it? I'm sure a few anons on a chinise image board aren't going to change how an artists does things over night.



Just post it, m8. It's like the other anons have said, a single picture won't skyrocket their popularity (unless it's amazingly drawn fan-art)

>because Paypal took away the option to say No Address Required

It's still there when you send money, I have no idea what you're talking about. Click the arrow by the address and select the option. Been that way for most of the year now. It was there this morning.

Oh as for Paypal... if an artist has a business account and demands gift payment, they're breaking the business account terms. They are not supposed to receive gift payments. If they demand you pay the fees too, that's also against Paypal's terms, report them.

If Paypal ever does require a tracking number in a claim, well you should have thought of this, print a copy, put it in a stiff envelope or mailing tube, send it to them.

<OMG I would pay $200 for your work.

How easy is it to do chargeback scams?

Can I just drop $50 into a fresh Paypal account then do the chargeback thing to every artist that sends me an invoice that lets me choose a shipping address?

I got a folder full of sketches from targeting people who explicitly state "payment after you approve the sketch" and a few colored images too, but it's a pain in the ass when I kinda like the sketch but can't pony up the ridiculous prices some of these people are asking for.



Enjoy losing your fifty bucks.



No I am not. I just wanted my explorer cat Dr. Deadzo



wow you're a dick



There's literally nothing wrong with scamming dumb people.



It's an investment. If I can get several returns on that $50 then it will have been worth it.


Sometimes I just need a rough sketch or something I can keep to myself, or a reference I can give to an artist I actually like. I can't draw the kinds of poses or scenarios that I want, and it's bullshit that artists would ask for $20 for a sketch that doesn't take longer than half an hour to produce. I'm just trying to work with the tools I've been given.



Nothing wrong with killing off bad people either right :^)



No? If you kill a criminal he can't commit crimes again.



So you support your own death for committing theft?



You cannot steal a drawing, when the artist sends it to you, you both have it, and it can be copied endlessly.



Theft extends to services too. Theft isn't just "hur hur has to be a physical object". I guess they don't teach that in backwater America.

You're paying for the service of them bringing your imaginary shit in to fruition. After the service is complete/half complete you fuck off. This is very similar to going to a restaurant, ordering something, eating half, and leaving - something which is also theft.

You even ADMIT it's theft above when you say "There's literally nothing wrong with scamming dumb people." Scamming implied theft.

So yeah. You support your own death. So go put a bullet in your brain.



There is no resource being lost other than time here, if I scammed a restaurant then I stole food out of them, in this way, the resource was born in an instant and thus is only valuable if I assign a value to it.

I don't value it at all, so I won't pay for it. You can't steal 0$ can you? So it is not theft. If the artist was good and his service was valuable I'd pay for it.

>There is no resource being lost other than time here

So, one of the most valuable resources, and the one that is the most traded worldwide?

>I don't value it at all, so I won't pay for it

Oh so you're a pic related autist. Well newsflash - what you think doesn't effect or change what everyone else thinks of you. And in large society thinks you're a thief. You're just a petty thief using entry level psychological reasoning to try and justify theft.

>If the artist was good and his service was valuable I'd pay for it.

If the artist was bad and nonvaluable you subconsciously wouldn't have contact them in the first place.



>So, one of the most valuable resources, and the one that is the most traded worldwide?

If it's so valuable why are you wasting it here discussing with me? Am I thief for stealing your time too?

>And in large society thinks you're a thief.

You're a single autist in a furry board, you don't represent society.

>If the artist was bad and nonvaluable you subconsciously wouldn't have contact them in the first place.

I'd eat bad food if it was free. I get stuff from bad artists if it's free.



more like "other artists hated cheaper competition and sock puppeted to get them to jack up prices"

Trust me, their raised prices ain't selling.

>You're a single autist in a furry board, you don't represent society.

IDK who you think you're trying to fool. Like, do you go outside and talk to normies? Do you understand the world you exist in? Or are you so far up your ass with ancap/ego philosophy that you think that if you got tried for theft, people would support you?

Mine keep boiling down to:

>little to no communication

>getting a sketch before final coloring is a like pulling teeth despite their own TOS saying they will

>have to open a fucking case with paypal just to get a god damned response from the artist despite having used their preferred method of contacting them, results in either a refund or 'Oh, sorry, I just lost your commission, here it is!'

>get something done by a chinese artist

>active communication even with the language barrier

>gives sketches for approval and progress reports when I didn't expect any

>quick turn around time

>exactly what I asked for

>throw more money at them as a tip for being so easy to work with and exceeding all my expectations




And those paypal cases are near the absolute time limit for when you can get a refund from paypal.



Commissions I wasn't satisfied with, or commissions that the artist had to cancel for whatever reason.

A lot of these sketches were done with nothing but a text description of poses, so being able to reuse the sketches they provided would be very helpful.



>worst commission experience?

I need a pose reference for a "bound and raped by tentacles" commission.

Show me what you got.



I'm going through a similar situation with Radiocomix. Have had zero communication through the contact us form and I've been waiting for several months now.



I've commisisoned Kizrae and Sarichow in the past, both were awesome. No I'm not posting the art, I paid extra for it to be private. But I recommend them both whole heartedly.



I hope your doubts don't stem from expecting the "new" artist to draw over whatever you give them.

Nobody who is worth of the title of artist would do that. Not even because of muh tracing. It's basically impossible for another artist's vision of your commission to match their own. They're simply going to come up with a new one and redo it from scratch.



Naw, it's something a bit more complicated.

I'm worried that I'll give an artist a sketch that I got from a different artist, possible with a big watermark or SAMPLE thing drawn over it, and then the artist will pull some drama shit like "Hey, who drew this? Do you have the rights for this? Did you properly pay for this?" etc.

I know artists get their panties in a bunch over stuff like that and it's a pain in my ass because I've heard stories of people being blocked and publicly shamed for trying to get an artist to draw based on a reference that another artist drew.

Asking the artists that drew the original sketch isn't an option for me because it's been so long I've honestly forgotten who drew it.



>I've heard stories of people being blocked and publicly shamed for trying to get an artist to draw based on a reference that another artist drew.

Those aren't artists, those are cunts waving a pencil around.

The quality doesn't have to be as good, I just want cheaper commissions, even if they're not the absolute best.

Do you think I'd be able to ask artists if they could give me a little doodle in the corner of a commission (about 1/8th the total size of the page) showing a "Moments earlier" kind of scene?

Like a picture of a girl getting pounded by two guys has a "Moments earlier" scene in the corner where they're both flirting with her.

Something playful and sketchy like that would probably cost the same as any sort of extra panel that these people charge for but I wonder if there's anyone out there that would do it for free (and not get triggered at the suggestion).



Just ask. it can never hurt to communicate. Just be polite, and if the artist isn't an asshole they should be alright with it.

I asked the artist if I could take the character he drew f or me and turn her into her own character. He said anything was cool as long as he got some credit. Looks like I'll have to give her a name and backstory, but I've never been too good with thinking up ideas like that.



Her name is Ariel Aiyana.

Ariel was originally an alchemist named Salma Janae (Saruma Janae) from the Sea of Estray, a cluster of smaller sorcerer organizations on northern Europe. She developed a method at the apex of her magical research allowing her to absorb and merge her existence with the lives of other creatures in order to obtain immortality and ascend to the level of a Dead Apostle. She has existed for over a millennium, and developed into the accumulation of lives she absorbed with a collective consciousness, aligned with her will yet not entirely under her control and of nature beyond her own understanding. The understanding and control over the disordered dendrogram that is her body became her eternal thesis. Even though she is conscious that her mind is slowly fading by being united to the beasts, her ultimate desire is to come to understand the chaos that formed her even if she should be completely swallowed by that very same chaos.

Like many other vampires, she has taken her name from those given by the Church. "Ariel", phonetically spelled "Aery", was given to her as a play on words in Gematria by which the letters that compose it add up to 666, the so-called Number of the Beast. Her second name,"Aiyana", was given to her due to hre nature as literal, squelching chaos similar to a primordial earth.



Geezus, man!

All I did was ask the artist to draw a mouse girl, and make her cute. I didn't tell him anything else beyond that.



This is a shitty Type-Moon OC.

Remove the tri-color hair, in fact remove the hair entirely. Remove the unicorn horn. Remove the stupid Mary-Sue wings. Remove the fact that she's a human and not furry.

It wouldn't even be the same character anymore; once you get rid of the shit there's nothing left. It's a character literally composed of a pile of shit molded into the shape of a human.



Why are you even here if your "fursona" is humanshit? This sort of thing belongs on >>>/a/
