Spring Break Art Drive

Credit where credit is due: A lot of these rules/guidelines were inspired by skulldog's March Art Party. I though it was a great approach to commissions/requests and wanted to try it myself!

What you're getting:

This is an emergency art drive for bust images--aka images of a character from the shoulders up. Busts will only be colored if I make enough in tips to warrant it. NOTE: I am best at drawing animals/creatures, but I will draw virtually anything you ask (humans/anthro characters/mechs/etc).

How to participate:

- READ ALL THE FOLLOWING RULES. If you don't, you won't get a free bust and if you tipped, I will have to refund you.

- Due to my hectic college workload, commenting with a request does not mean that you automatically will get a bust. If you comment early it increases your chances because then I'll be able to work on them during my spring break. Spreading the word about this journal/sharing the link to it will, of course, encourage me to get to work on your request earlier (so please tell me if you do in your request form so that I know!). However, only tipping GUARANTEES you a bust. Please do not whine or complain if you do not get one.

- As always, I won't draw porn/adult art for these. Kind of hard to do with a bust anyways, haha. So please don't link me to adult references, or request adult art, I'm not interested in seeing your character's genitals or whatever.

- If you don't have a visual reference (aka a picture of your character), just leave a short bit of info on the character, important things for a bust such as eye color, personality, etc. Of course if you don't want me to draw a particular character, feel free to leave a request with like an animal or something, I can certainly draw those too.

- Please keep this to ONE character per request*.

- These are requests, not full commissions. I always do my best to stay as true to the provided reference as possible, but I won't be going back and making changes once the bust is done.

- If you tip, please make note in your request post! *If you tip, you may request a second character or theme, in the case I get enough tips to warrant me drawing more than one bust for people. If this is not the case, I will use the first requested character or theme.

- I have enabled ANON comments just for this entry, so YOU DO NOT need an LJ account to request a bust. Anon coments are screened, however, to keep spam/bots from cluttering up this entry, so don't worry; that's normal, and if you submitted a request form I will unscreen it ASAP. ALSO: If you are commenting anonymously, please also leave your email OR a link to an account you have on another site (such as an email/DA/FA/Tumblr/etc; somewhere I can note/email you to send the final bust or updates if you are picked for one of the random draws).

Sample request form (please comment to the entry with this):
Link to reference (OR a brief text description if you don't have a picture):
Mood/theme/expression (IF you have something specific in mind, if not you can just choose to give me free reign):
Did you tip? (proof please!):
Link to offsite account/email:
Second character reference/theme (ONLY IF YOU TIPPED):

How long will this take?:

I'll be starting on these as soon as I get the first comments; how long it takes will depend entirely upon how many requests I get, and how hectic my college workload is once I go back, which tends to fluctuate. I will be open for requests until either Friday or Saturday night, at which point I will close requests and stop accepting tips.


Why should you tip?:
This emergency art drive is mainly to replace the money from work I lost when my wallet was stolen. Also, I'm attending college now and since my parents cover my tuition and college is never cheap in that regards, I like to try and help out by paying for as much of my own commodities as I can. Tips will help me afford things like food and laundry while I'm on campus, not to mention the ever-important studio supplies so that I can continue making art.

Tips are also highly encouraged since they will build up too reward everyone who participates, since it'll increase the chances that more people get their request drawn or even colored, and the I'll get some funds for the hours I'll be putting into this over my Spring Break.

ALL TIPPERS WILL GET ART REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH THEY TIP.

~$10 - 2 untipped requests get drawn Reached!
~$25 - 5 untipped requests get drawn. Reached!
~$50 - 7 untipped requests get drawn, and everyone on comment page 1 who tipped get colored busts. Reached!
~$80 - same as above, but 8 untipped requests get drawn and two tippers will receive a second bust.
~ Further tip bonuses will be elaborated on as they are reached. (NOTE: I may have to adjust the tip bonuses as this progresses, since I'm not quite sure how much attention this entry is going to get. This is very experimental for me, I'm just trying to try a new approach to drawing for people!)

EDIT:
This drive is now CLOSED.
No new requests or tips, please! Huge thanks to everyone who participated. I will be finishing up the last few requests over the next week!

This is Ccarcia3 from dA. ( ccarcia3.deviantart.com (http://ccarcia3.deviantart.com/))
I'd love a bust of my character "Hapless"!
Reference: Tower Guard: Hapless (http://ccarcia3.deviantart.com/art/Tower-Guard-Hapless-161737715)
Expression: Downtrodden, apathetic, and annoyed at his own uselessness. Like an angry "Why me?"
Proof of tip: used Paypal as mjbakerartist@gmail.com (Martha Baker)
Second character, if you're feeling generous: My character Thewless, looking sad and helpless as well, but less angry than Hapless. More melancholy.
Second reference: Tower Guard: Thewless (http://ccarcia3.deviantart.com/art/Tower-Guard-Thewless-194767521)
