WARNING! Some of my statements may seems offensive or rude... they are - I'm not a nice person.
Hi, what's your name?
Hi, I am Grose, sometimes grosechan, sometimes "you douchebag!". If you expected to know my real name - forget it. Not only it will not give you anything, it has nothing to do with my works - nickname more accurate.
How are you doing?
By hands. Seriously, I'm not a fan of hollow talks, so attempt to drag me in one is meaningless and may be mocked. If you want to talk to me about drawing, to share something new or useful, or I can be of any help - please. Otherwise you're just wasting your time.
You're super cool artist, AWESOME, your work should be published in real galleries ... blah blah blah
Stop. I know that there are many people who love this kinds of word and before asking something - of course always better to be on persons good side... But I'm not one of them. The first thing that I appreciate is the truth - anything, but the truth. And since I am well aware of my art retardness, I never believe such words. I appreciate, if you really think so, but you are more likely to get my sympathy by calling me "screw-handed asshole") And now to business ...
Do you take commissions?
From recent events - yes. I'm still believe that my skills are lackluster, but even untalented hacks should eat from time to time. Right now I don't have a set commision politic, so it will be more individual till I sort things out. Basic guidelines you can see in requests guidelines below. Exept if you don't follow them, but ask about commision - it's a matter of price.
Do you take requests?
Yes, but i have strict rules about them, which i rarely ignore.
How to declare a request?
Use PM or any other way to contact me (though i don't recomend smoke signals or channeling, this methods worked only twice before). Don't send me "can I make request?" or "I'd like to make request", without actually making it. Go straight to business, be confident - you want something and you think I can help with it. Also, it is desirable to more fully describe what you want to see. If I accept your request, I will answer you, if not - I'll probably too, but make no promises.
What can be asked as request?
This is most important. I take requests that help me grow, something I never did. This may be a pose, composition, style - anything. Theme of pickture must be creative/original/challenging/new for me or all together. If you have just an interesting, amusing or funny idea, please, I may also take it=) There is no certain criteria, just suggest and I give answer. I have no moral or taste preferences(as artist), so I'll drew anything, as long as it folows my rules.
How much time it will take?
Everything depends on the complexity or my free time:
If you want full color from me (why?) it could take a lot of time (side projects and all);
just inked - still will try your patience;
sketches i do more quickly.
And of course the motivation, so do not expect that the constant reminders about your request going to help.
What happens to the finished drawing?
Customer recieve whole rights on all non-commercial uses of any image, idea, concept, setting, design and other shit(personal opinion) i produce for him. That's mean - picture can be posted anywhere customer will desire (making reference to me, you don't want people to think that's you such shitty drawer); printed and pinned to the wall(some people still do that); maked into a T-shirt or a mug(some people actually do this)... In short, anything until it's free. I guarantee full anonimity. unless told otherwise - nobody will get from me anything (name, contacts, request info or picture). If i liked result(very unlikely), I could ask customers permission on posting it as part of my portfolio (though i doubt I show it to anyone ever)
Allright, now if you have any more questions, ask them here. Have a nice day.
