Birthday Gifts for YOU!

Postby Tim on Sun Aug 27, 2006 9:14 pm

I'm doing something a little different this year. Like anyone else on their birthday, it's always nice to receive gifts. Unfortunately, it's been a while since I've gotten any fanart. Last year, I asked for feedback. Well, didn't get much of that, either. So, this year, I'm trying...bribery!

Here's the deal. I will draw you something. Anything you'd like - whether it's fanart for your comic, or something completely random. All you need to do is one thing - compliment my comic. C'mon, you obviously read it, surely there's something nice you can say about it. A few things to remember:
    - The quality of your compliment is directly proportional to the amount of effort I will put into your request. Saying "it's nice, I like it" will result in a stick figure. The more you elaborate, the more I'll try to make it look nice...maybe even adding color...or shading!

    - You are requesting something from me, you are not demanding something. Ask nicely.

    - As a rule of thumb, your request should not be longer than your compliment.

    - Keep the compliments positive. Constructive criticism is okay, but keep it to a minimum, and always with suggestions. I don't want to hear "use color" or "draw better".

    - You may provide fanart instead of a compliment.

    - You've seen my work; when making a request, keep in mind my artistic limitations.

    - If it's fanart, you can ask for your style, or my style. Your style, will of course require a bit more effort (see point 1).

    - References, when applicable, are always appreciated.

    - This offer is good until...well, whenever, really. If you take the time to compliment me, I will take the time to sketch something.
