Debut and Icon Commissions! [Jun. 18th, 2008|10:59 pm]

Hello there, beautiful people!

I'm a new face here who ultimately came drifting in from pkmncollectors. Some of you definitely have encountered me in some way or another via the community given above, but I'm certain that I've yet to meet a good number of you! It's a pleasure! ♥





After I recently promised _nofuturenohope a few icons (the Vaporeon is for her, in fact) in return for her generous free giveaway of some choice Pokemon TCG cards, I went on a bit of a splurge and whipped up a few random extras. It looks like I won't be getting off this soapbox anytime soon, so I'm opening myself up for Pokemon icon commissions. ♥


Current Commission Slots


Slot 1: regen | Chimecho
Slot 2: badgerr_ftw | Monocle!Feraligar With Top Hat
Slot 3: castform | Shaymin
Slot 4: castform | Emoticon!Exeggutor
Slot 5: castform | Bulbasaur



Completed Commissions


_nofuturenohope regen




Wait List

Notice: The "Wait List" is prioritized by who has asked first and who has sent payment first.


Slot 1: ellonwye | Kangaskhan [Unpaid]



Icon Overview


Price: $4 each.
Payment Method: PayPal only, all forms of PP payment accepted. No additional PayPal fee is added (already included within the total payment of $4).
Restrictions: Only one character per icon! Currently icon subjects are Pokemon-only, but choices will expand to Pokemon human characters in the near future!
Time Length: Icons typically finish in a week (often less), but will take no more than two weeks.
Notices: Spots are only secured once payment is received. In the case that full payment is sent after all 5 slots are filled, you will be added to the wait-list and will have first priority to an open slot once slots re-open.

All completed commissions (un-watermarked versions) are e-mailed to their respective commissioner. As the artist, I reserve the right to display the watermarked versions as examples of my work, but all other rights belong to the commissioner.


Frequently Asked Questions:


If I am unable to make payment now, can I still ask for a slot?
Definitely! In the case that you are unable to send payment in full (due to overall PayPal fees, I do not accept partial payments), you are more than welcome to ask to be be wait-listed! However, please note that you will only be secured an official slot and progress will only begin on your icon after payment is received.

After reconsideration, I've decided that I actually want to withdraw my commission and/or I do not like the icon you created for me. Do you do refunds?
I issue full refunds if-and-only-if I have not started on your icon. In the case that I have started progress on your icon, I will issue a partial refund. In the case that I have completed your icon, I cannot refund payment.

Besides the commissioned icons, I also whip up extra batches of random characters alongside. They'll also be made available for purchase with every finished batch. You are also welcome to claim/purchase any of the icons above. Again, simply reply with a comment indicating which one you'd like to purchase, I'll confirm whether or not the icon in question is still available, and I'll e-mail the un-watermarked version to you after receiving payment.

Claimed: Vaporeon

Thanks for looking everyone! ♥

I was actually planning to open myself up for both! This is actually my first time officially opening myself up for commissions, so I thought it best to start out slow. Did you have someone (or a couple, I wager? ♥) in mind? ♥

I can't promise a threesome that I can fit three people in one icon though. ;3

Totally do-able! ♥

I'm guessing you want a father/son picture for the Byron and Young!Roark one, but as per the Volkner and Roark one, did you want a bit more... action? I'm an avid fan and supporter of BL, so if you wanted something a bit more steamy, I'm up to it. ;3

Thanks for the reference by the way! Holy crap, that is some crazy pretty doujinshi!

I really need to get to bed right now, so I'll respond with confirmation that payment was received and that you've taken two slots tomorrow morning! ♥

Thanks again!

Not a problem at all ^-^ I know right now i'm set up with several commissions ranging from pokee to anthro to actual clients and others for tattoo parlors and i'm moving within DAYS now so i've set everything off until i get settled and ready to start working on shiz again so definitely take your time and if you'd like to stick me somewhere in the middle down the line, no problemo =D But like i said before, i'd luuuurv to do a Denji/Roark one but not sexually explicit just the fact that i like Denji and haven't drawn him yet but i'd have a perfect excuse for you now xD

Just a word up!

I took a bit of account into it, and I think I'll actually just stick with Pokemon critters for now. I know I told you that I'd be willing to do humans as well, but I think it's safer as well as less stressful for me for me to just start off with just creatures first. As you haven't sent payment, I'm guessing that it'll be okay, but I apologize greatly anyway. D;

I'm really sorry! D;

However, I'm more than willing to do an apology icon for you! And as soon as I open up icon commissions for humans as well, I'll send word! ♥

Your icons are so vibrant and nifty! On the upcoming sales update, would you consider a trade for any items you might pick up?

Thank you for the compliments! And yes, totally, definitely! Actually, I'm willing to do at least one for you for free as I owe you so much! ♥

What were you interested in? I'm hoping to finish a few more icons today or tomorrow and I'd definitely be able to slide yours in. ;3

That'd be great. ^__^ I'd love an icon of Jirachi and Chimecho to start, and probably more later. XD

Added you in the claimed list! I'm totally willing to do Jirachi and Chimecho for free for you! ♥

However, I'll have any other icons you order from me in the future equate as trades/purchases, if that's okay? ;3

Yes, that sounds wonderful! There's a small handful of items I'd like to have made at one point or another, so I think this will work out nicely for the both of us. :D

Awesome! I'm hoping to get started on these tonight and finish them up early tomorrow before I leave for work, but in the case that doesn't work out, you'll definitely see yours some time in the following week, if not sooner! ♥

I'd love a Kangaskhan icon, but I don't have quite enough in my paypal account to pay the whole amount JUST yet.. but I'm definitely interested in a slot! Would it be possible to maybe send half? I seriously have like £2 in my bank at the moment, since I haven't had a chance to go there yet. ;_;

If not I totally understand, and thanks anyway!

It's not a problem! It'll actually be easier for me to receive payments in full, so I'll just add you to the wait-list for now and just tell me when you're able to send payment whenever! ♥

My usual style is draw critters in a more realistic yet cartoony (somewhat paradoxical, I know) direction. I'm not so great in the "chibi" category, but I'll give it my best shot. I must warn you, it'll probably look more like an elaborate Growlithe with extra "foof-and-tooth" rather than an Arcanine.

Will that still be okay with you? ;3

Would it be possible to do a KIND OF WEIRD request? :0
A Feraligatr with a monicle and top hat? 8D lol I could pay extra if you need me to.

Hell, that sounds like fun! Totally do-able and a very welcome request! There's no need to pay extra. ;3

If all's fine at your end, please send total payment of $4 to the following e-mail address:

rinkatink[AT]gmail[DOT]com

Please include your LJ Username and the icon you are commissioning in the memo (if you titled "Icon Commission" in the subject line, that would also be super swell). Thank you! ♥

Payment received! Your icon itself will be done sometime soon next week. ;3

And I totally forgot to ask for this, but mind giving me the e-mail address to which I should send the un-watermarked version to once completed? ♥

Awesome! Duly noted. ;3

I'll be sure to simultaneously contact you here and via e-mail (with the commissioned icon) when it's done! :D
