Seeking Snuffie Artists...

So I didn't spend much at Rainfurrest at all, and I'm thinking of commissioning someone for a snuffie idea I had. Alex Reynard says he's not so good with sequential art, so I'm shouting it out here--who is a) comfortable with snuffie, b) available for commission, and c) thinks they'd be able to draw the following idea well?


Arranged like a four-panel comic, but without dividers--it's all one scene, with the aftermath of events proceeding from left to right, with the present event on the far right.

The first three "panel" scenes would be various scenes of carnage with my dead body as the centerpiece, with some crumbs of green detritus scattered to the left. The fourth panel would be a very alive me chowing down on a green spotted mushroom, with a pixellated "1UP" appearing above my head. The caption/tagline/whatever would be "Extra Lives: The Cure For The Common Death."

I know I want to include hanging and falling on spikes as two of the deaths, not 100% certain yet on the third. But first, I'd like to hear from a) artists who might want to do this, and b) people who know artists who might want to do this. :3

B) Ask Kuma-kun.  He does wonderful artworks of things right up that alley.

(or Wolfblade ) does snuffie. o.o; Though I'm not sure how much he costs or if he's taking any work right now. ^_^;

Thanks! I'll ask--though it looks like he's just doing the "slavestream" commissions, and has a backlog of oneshot commissions like the one I'm looking for and so would likely not be looking to add to the pile. T_T

Hmm, if you're going for anything related to Video Game deaths, maybe a failed Prince of Persia wall-run ending with Alfie's leg colliding with a wall-saw trap and falling down into a VERY deep/bottomless pit? =P

And of course I doubt the spike pit death will be as tame as in the Megaman games, eh? XD

Heh, bottomless pit might be nice but I'm going for deaths that leave a body visible in-frame.

Which also means yes, I won't be exploding into flashing circles. ;)

Well I assume a lot of deaths wouldn't really leave the body in one piece, correct? Maybe a jammed escape lever when piloting a mech about to be hit by a shot that would rupture the generator or cockpit? =P

Perhaps being hit by shrapnel from an exploding vehicle? Or maybe even tossed by a concussive non-shrapnel blast into some very sharp objects on the wall that may or may not be mechanical constructs meant to destroy things? =P

Or maybe even a more gruesome sci-fi approach like the Husks from Mass Effect (Impaled on a giant spike, drained of organic nutrients and replaced with rudimentary cybernetics to create a cyborg zombie)?

Just throwing these out there in case one would strike your fancy ^w^

Those might be cool, but wouldn't really fit with the idea I'm going for here, with bodies mostly visible in a single area of a larger drawing. Like, if I exploded, the pieces should be relatively large and not very scattered.

Good ideas though! Thanks!!
