:dance: Commissions! :dance:

For a while I have been musing about doing commissions, 3D-art wise. Since I have improved greatly in my 3D art and am learning new things I finally decided to open some up.

How 3D Commissions Work

With 3D art, not everything is created from scratch. Some items are bought, including the figures themselves which must be manipulated to get the right look, both physically and aesthetically (for example, setting skin and eye settings, lighting, background). For my own artwork I cannot create my own clothing; everything must be bought or found. Same with the hair, skin, and if I wish it, buying shapes for a figure to get a particular face. All that being said, here is how I have set up commissions:

- I have quite a library of stuff within DAZ (which is the program I use) but perhaps not everything I'd need for someone's character. Any prices I will charge would not reflect the work put into it, but items bought to put the picture together. Items I would want to buy for a particular picture--say, a very nice ranger outfit for a female character, or a particular hairstyle for a male--will have to get pre-approval from someone before I buy it. I will pick stuff from my library if possible but some pieces I might not feel I have, so I would ask the commissioner, "What do you think about me using this?" If they really liked it, I would then buy the item, say it's $15.00. If that is the only item I bought and everything else (skin, hair, props, background) came from my own library, the picture's price would also be $15.00. However, the items bought would not be limited to that single picture use and I might use it again in my own renders.

- I would prefer render requests of a fantasy sort, as this is mostly what I have in my library. However I can and would do other pictures but depending on what's being asked for, I'd probably have to buy a few things for a particular piece.

- I would like to buy at least one item per commission, that way I get something from each one, whether it be really cheap or a bit more pricey. (It would depend on what I am asking the commissioner to buy, and if they'd like it). I would do my best to keep prices under $20-25. Keep in mind this is for more than one picture! So I think it's a great deal for me and a commissioner.

The good thing about requesting a 3D art piece is that the commissioner can also ask for more than one portrait--a close up, a full body, whatever they want. I would be happy to do multiple renderings of a character, in the same or multiple settings. You would not be limited to just one and I would do as many as you like (spaced out reasonably) whenever I have the time. Though setting up a first picture takes a little while, I have been using DAZ for five years so my timing is pretty good, and follow up pictures are usually quicker to do. Also, more than one character may be requested in a piece. Price would still only apply to items bought.

If interested please drop me a note!

Dis Inferno X :: Moi dix Mois End-Year Live

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 29, 2012, 6:45 AM
Today was Dis infernoX!! It was held at Duo Music Exchange in Shibuya.

I felt like wearing blue and white today and decked myself out in Moitie's gorgeous blue! I even had a long blue wig to match!

Dis Inferno X Coordinate by DrowElfMorwen

As usual the place was nicely full. There was no curtain, leaving me wishing to have that huge decagram flag they always hang on the back of the stage. I hung back a little, too, to stand on a raised part of the floor for a decent view. I waited impatiently; then...

Mana came out first.



Seriously!!! He looked amazing!! Well of course, pardon my fan-girling. And I noticed K seems to have gotten rid of his braids, with the sides of his head shaved he is sporting a single mohawk! Seth was wearing his big fur coat, open, paired with a sleeveless shirt that was so short it only covered his chest, leaving his lower torso fully exposed. Well! His die-hard fans must've enjoyed that.

My memory isn't very good but here is the main set list; somewhat in order.

En Lumiere
Dialogue Symphonie
the Prophet
Front Et Baiser
Deus Ex Machina
In Paradisum
Seventh Veil

Of course Immortal Madness was in there as well, when everyone shouts "dix ___!" (Fill in the blank with whatever Seth says). But I can't remember what it was; it could have been "dix love" with other things. They also did MAD INGRAIN, too.

Finally was "Je L'aime", which was just beautifully emotional. The first part finished with everyone walking off one at a time with En Lumiere playing n the background.

Then, after a short interjection...

Everyne changed! Simple but punkish black outfits; Mana's hair was now down and undecorated, and he wore a studded collar and Mötley Crüe teeshirt. Seth ditched both his shirt and the fur coat and was wearing some flimsy open thing that look sorta leopard-spot designed. Ho hum.

Well, they did a cover of Shout at the Devil (Mötley Crüe of course)!… Seth REALLY sang his heart out in a perfect imitation of the lead singer of MC. I was extremely impressed. Mana was on drums, and amazing as usual; Hayato on guitar; it was really awesome and a pleasant surprise! Mana is really a little punk on the inside!

Finally, as with all the end-year lives, K and Seth sang "You're Just Too Good To Be True" as big balloons were tossed into the audience, filled with little balloons! Seth seemed to jump every time a big one popped on the ceiling and he kinda got hit more than once so it was pretty amusing! XD

All in all a great end-year live!!

The next one is on 2.23 and then 3.20!!!

dix love!

your drawing is complete! :dummy:
Wow!! It is really nice Boxjelly! I can't believe you completed it so quickly. They look really cool! I like their poses. It came out excellent! ^o^

I'm so glad you like it!
^^; haha, honestly I don't know how, or why, I did it that fast either. But It's here!
Thank you, I'm really happy with the poses too. It's not always easy to make characters look like they either comfortable or dynamic in their setting, but I think that across pretty well here C:

And hooray! I'm really looking forward to seeing it!
