Requests-Will be linked from navigation

Announcement



I am sorry it has come to this, but a few factors have caused me to make this decision. I will no longer be taking requests for free. I will spare you the drama (good and bad) that caused this decision (I know me without drama, shocking..I will give you a moment to compose yourself.) I will from now on be taking requests for headers (LJ and website) and wallpapers for commission only.Edit: I now take icon requests as well, read further for info. Read behind the cut for further information, pricing and the request form. Don't worry the pricing is not painful at all.

Excluded


The following LJ users are excluded from paying for requests. Their requests will remain free
elusion-She hosts my 10,000+ screencaps for free. You need not pay me for graphics hun.

bentfire-Not that you have ever requested, but if you did you need not pay, the amount of x-men scans you link me to is payment enough, I could never find half of them on my own, and you share with me HQ ones people do for you. I appreciate it.

• If at anytime someone else falls into this category I will let them know personally.



General Information


My artwork is all blended images made in PS7, therefor unlike most commissioned artists I will not charge per character. I will however be charging per image used in the graphic. I will also be taking into consideration the complexity of your request. You can see examples of my work here in my Photobucket banner folder, the memories of this journal and throughout this entry.


Icons


+$1.00 per icon
+Minimum of 5 icons per order
+Maximum of 20 icons per order
+Non animated only NO EXCEPTIONS
+If text or lyrics are not provided no text or tiny text will be used if the graphic calls for it.
+Payment is due before icons are recieved.
+If you have any specific style requests, include them when you comission me or I will use my own choices for style.
+You do not need to provide images if you do not wish to, however if you do they must be of HQ. If you are unsure if they are HQ you may dicuss it with me prior to requesting or I will let you know if I cannot work with them.

Other
+I can work with shitty, bad quality images, but they take more time and work, if you really want a shit quality image used in your icon request I will charge you accordinly, meaning if I have to spend an hour just cleaning up the image your icon will not cost $1.00. I will evaluate the image and let you know BEFORE I begin.

+If the image you want used has a watermark over the subjects face and you wish for me to use the image, that will require me to remove the watermark which is also a great deal of work, as mentioned above I will evaluate the image and let you know any additional cost before I begin.

I will not be comissioned to make challenge entries. If I see any of my comissioned icons being used as entries for challenges I will notify the moderators of the challenge communities



Pricing for Graphcs

Prices are the same wether your request is a wallpaper or a header. If your request is a LJ header yourname@livejournal.com is free and is not included in text prices

Option A: 2 image blend (simple) [$5.00 U.S ] This is 2 different images blended to create the graphic, simple means that I use brushes and basic gradients to create any affects. 1 line of text is included on the image.

This is an example of "simple" with 1 line of text, this blend however used 3 images



Option B: 2 image blend (complex) [$8.00 U.S ] This again is 2 images blended to create the graphic, however in addition to brushes I will also use more elaborate gradients and textures made by me o create the added affects. You also have no limit on text.

This is an example of "complex", however this graphic uses 3+ images



Extras: additional features and charges to be added to either option A or B

Additional images (above the initial 2): [$1.00 U.S ]
Additional line of text to option A: [$1.00 U.S ]
Image mapping text on headers: [.50 U.S per link ] Example of image mapping text

I will not code a layout or image map



Payment Info
You can pay me a variety of ways but I prefer Paypal.


• Make a paypal payment to lovesjaydog@yahoo.com

• $5 or $10 total requests may pay with an Ebay Gift certificut to user: tammys6129 email: lovesjaydog@yahoo.com

• The first $8 request that wants to pay via a Deviant Art subscription may do so as a 3 moth ($7.95) gift to user lovesjaydog. This is a one time only payment when someone uses it it is gone

Amazon.com Gift certificut to the email address: lovesjaydog@yahoo.com

• Upon request I will also take snail may payments via concelled cash or money order. NO CHECKS.


Request Info Long ass explination, request form at the end


• If you have specific images you would like used that is preferred, but not necessary. If you are supplying images please make sure they are HQ. If you would preferr that I choose the images please be specific as to what you want. For example on that portion of the form...

Images: if you have no image you would write I want a Brad Pitt header, something with his shirt off, or I want a Holly marie combs wallpaper, something from season 4 (or) something with her hair up.

Please link images from your request comment.

• Specify the size of the header or wallpaper. If you do not specify size you get whatever I feel like making.

• I would prefer that you not request a color theme. I just work better without them, but seeing as you are now paying me, if you absolutely need a green header, make sure you tell me so, if not I go wherever the graphic takes me with color.

• Please specify the text you want used. If the request is a LJ header please tell me the username you want on it in the form of yourname@livejournal.com (it's free) or specify if you do not want the username on it. No specifications, no text.

• Borders. If you want the graphic bordered please say so (with any specific requests on bordering). No specifications, I go where the graphic takes me. Examples BORDERED NOT BORDERED

• How will you be paying? Please let me know in the form. I prefer paypal.

• Requests are not shareable, they are for you only. I will not post them to the community, so I need to know where to email them. Please fill in your email address on the form. If your email address being in the comments makes you uncomfortable, TOTALLY UNDERSTANDABLE. After I reply with a total cost you may email me at lovesjaydog@yahoo.com with your email address. Please put graphic request email in the subject line and the email address and your LJ user name in the body of the email.


Form

All of the above information is in this nice and easy form. Just copy and paste it into a reply to this entry.



I will reply to your request to confirm total cost, at that time payment is to be made. If for some reason you are unhappy with your graphic, I will be more than happy to work with you to make it something you ARE happy with.

The fees are for my time, not the resources used.

I will still be making regular entries to this journal for public use as always. It's just I will no longer be taking requests without commission.

do you take, not requests, but suggestions for free? like, if someone wanted to see more of a certain graphic-type or tv show or whatever?
When my muse takes a vacation I normally make an entry asking what you guys want me to icon or I put up a poll for suggestions, This wont stop. Basically all thats changing is the personalized requesting. Due to various reasons I have to limit the amount I do and make it more worthwhile for me to do them, so to answer your question, yes I will always take theme suggestions. especially when I neglect a theme you joined my journal specifically to see.
I think you made a good choice in doing this, and your prices are more than fair.

....Don't make them higher because of me, people will get out their shotguns, I'm just saying!

lmao naaaaaa it's not really so much the money as to why I did it, it's *grumbles* other reasons. lol and thanks :) for thinking my work is worth paying for.
its about time :)

You're mad talented, and you've been busting your arse churning out requests for everyone - you deserve a little something back :)

Would you like me to put up a page on broken-doll with this info and an email form they can fill out that will just email you the contents of the completed form?
not just yet, I wanna see how it goes here for a bit, maybe then I will expand..lol
This is a good idea. You're really talented, so it's understandable. Personally, the prices are a little high, but I don't know how long it takes you to do them and everything (don't get mad), since I don't do graphics myself (but I wish I could).

good luck with this. I might ask you for a layout soon... once I get a job.
I based the prices below what i pay when i comission people to do hand drawn work. right now i am paying for a comission for a hand drawn comic at $10.00 for a one character drawing, an extra $5.00 for a background and additional pay pal fees i thought this was reasonable seeing as what everyone normally requests from me is a 2 image blend with 1 line of text that would be 8.00. not to bad. I would never be mad for you being honest on your opinion hun, no worries.
Well, I understand. You're really good at what you do, so it's understandable that you charge that much. I hope it goes alright and people buy a lot. Good luck.
Please disregard my request if you don't mind. Although I definitely can't wait to see your regular work! ^_^

Selig sei und Liebe,
*~*smpobsessor*~*
you should offer full layouts...like coding and everything for a flat fee, i would pay for that!
Graphic: header
Option: B
Extra: specify any extra costs here
Color: If you do have color request specify here if not leave blank
Size: whereever it takes you
Text: any lyrics you feel fit the header bestide from the song "inside your heaven" by carrie underwood/bo bice
Border: yes
Images: I want the header to be Nancy Lee Grahn from GH but i've come to find that its nearly impossible to find any HQ images of her so if you can't then make the banner any HQ ric/alexis images. here is one from a photoshoot the only problem is i dont really like the colors used in the photoshoot but it works: http://aadaaraa.20megsfree.com/images/SID3-29-05_RexisDance.jpg
Email: nicoi3@aol.com
Payment: Paypal

** i just wanted to add that im really fond of that black/white technique used for sample A (where some of the banner is b/w and some is color) but if you feel that its not working for the banner, i trust your creativity

thanks!
the black white thing will be no problem, it will actually make it easier to use the less than HQ NLG images but I did find a few decent ones. I will make it NLG and if you don't like it I will redo it and use the rexis image. I will start it tomorrow, I should have it to you by monday night. You can paypal $8.00 for option B with no extra charges to lovesjaydog@yahoo.com . And for being my first request I will make you a matching icon for free. Thanks, Tammy
awesome! i cant wait to see it! i'll pay as soon as youre done unless you want the moola beforhand?
I will reply to your request to confirm total cost, at that time payment is to be made. If for some reason you are unhappy with your graphic, I will be more than happy to work with you to make it something you ARE happy with.

Thanks

i forgot to add that since youre doing NLG it probably wont sound right to use "i wanna be inside your heaven" lol that was just for rexis but since im not sure what kind of pics youre using, i dont know what lyric to give you so i'll give you a couple of songs, and you decide which fits the pics used best, if none of these do feel free to use your own judgement

what if we needed charmed screen caps? I'm looking to make an icon, and I have been unable to find them. Season 5 episode 99, the importance of being phoebe. I saw you had some in your memories, but I couldn't get to them. Any help would be appreciated.
All my charmed screencaps are archived here please make sure you credit me if you use them. Another great site for screencaps is hollymcombsfan.com but you need to register to see them.
initally you should join my journal to access my memories
what about screencaps?
I have recently lost interest in a lot of my internet activities. I am currently decieding what to do with my various journals and accounts, but I do know that with the recent loss of all my screencaps and my lack of interest I probably wont be capping anymore at all, sorry
