An Announcement Part 2

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 2, 2015, 9:34 AM
  • Mood: Bewildered
News


Part One

Continuing from the previous journal, where I declared my new initiative to draw some new creatures that I haven't done before, I figured I might as well add to that initiative.

One of the other issues that comes up from time to time is that some people want to commission me... but don't know what they want to commission. Even if they did, the price can sometimes make people do a double take, or just pass out from sticker shock.

So... How does this get solved?

This is something I'm calling "Thirty Dollar Themes"

What are they? Simple, They're themes, usually plucked from music, that you think your characters will best fit in.

Some Examples

"Already There" A split image of a soldier, in his barracks overseas calling home to his wife and children.

"Danger Zone" A 'shooter' giving the signal to launch a carrier aircraft while other crew members duck down to avoid the wings.

"Cosmic Castaway" A character in a space suit stands atop of a piece of wreckage from an old starship, taking in the cosmic scenery.

"Fix You" A visibly distressed female character can't get over a bad event, while a caring male character attempts to console her, and bring her emotional state back down to where she can talk.

"Still I fly" A male pilot gives a thank-you-hug to a female mechanic before climbing into his visibly worn aircraft to fly away on a long journey.

------

If you guys have any extra suggestions, please leave them. But if you're interested in any of those themes... leave a comment or note me.

The images will be as described, and will be fully colored AND shaded.
