CB Art and Themes by Calynne (in Services)


[LittleRed]Calynne January 3 2008 3:42 AM EST

Calynne's Art Stand

For examples of my artistic ability, see: http://blondeteraesa.deviantart.com

Couple extra things:
-Chibi character = Headshot price.
-I'll only draw in anime styles.
-I'll only take three (3) commissions at a time.
-Payments are to be sent to First National Bank.
-Pay only when you're happy with the finished art.
-I won't be doing CB Themes for now, because of changes being done to the system.
-Themes will cost 100k, once I can begin making them.
-Coloring pieces takes time, so if you order a colored piece, expect delays.

-The time it takes to draw a character differs, and I always do the best work I can, so please be patient.
-Please be descript when you want a character drawn. The more I know, the better I can produce what you want to see.
-I'm in the military. I work 3 days on, 3 days off in 12-hour shifts. That means I may not be able to post finished pieces right away. But I promise they'll get up as fast as possible.

-And last, but certainly not least, do let me know if the price is too high and I'll strike a deal with you by chatmail.

Godpanda January 3 2008 5:38 AM EST

I'm going to go ahead and fill you up.

I want a Fire familiar, an Ice familiar, and a Steel familiar drawn. In that order. Full body. I'll pay 750k though, for all 3. If that in unsatisfactory, let me know. I can pay more.

Use your imagination for most of it. I want them colored, of course.

PS, Things like creatures (wolves, dragons, etc, etc.) are GREAT. Colored to fit their element would also be cool. Attacking is optional. I'll be commisioning more of these, probably. I want tons of things drawn.


ALSO! i'm curious if you'd be willing to take like 25k to draw things like Morgs, VBs, ELBs, detailed like? Maybe 50k?

The price covers color and backgrounds. A suitable background would be lovely. Either in battle (would be awesome) or in an elemental arena (FF = volcano? Etc?)

Any questions about what I'm asking would be fine. CM or PM me. Danke!

Godpanda January 3 2008 5:41 AM EST

PS,

I understand that job isn't a character, but I figured the job would be fine? If not, I apologize :\

[LittleRed]Calynne January 3 2008 5:54 AM EST

Wow... those'll be interesting to do... and will take a bit of time, since you want them colored and are giving me creative rights, so to speak...

I'll get right on it!

100k for drawing x 3 = 300k
100k for coloring x 3 = 300k
50k for Backgrounds x 3 = 150k
Total: 750k.

I think you got the math right.

[LittleRed]Calynne January 3 2008 5:57 AM EST

And yes, I'll draw weapons and armor and such if people want me to draw it. Not sure of the price, but if its by themselves, then 25k would probably be enough for that.

QBOddBird January 3 2008 11:40 AM EST

>.> You may have 3 commissions currently....but I call dibs on the next one!

Darn you, GW, for being awake at that hour to get the first ones...

Godpanda January 3 2008 3:58 PM EST

Not only do I have these 3, but I totalllllly have DIBS!!! on the next 2 (jiggy and halidon). Duh.

QBOddBird January 3 2008 6:01 PM EST

Whatever. Should've specified that in your post. Now you're going to have to wait in line for those two.

Wizard'sFirstRule January 3 2008 6:02 PM EST

I will call dibs on the next one (reminds me of "My Name is Earl" where Randy gets a go first because he called dibs first.)

I want a full body portrait (chibi style) of a tall chinese guy with glasses weiding a big sword (or a torch would also work, or any other weapon) and lightly armored. Some association to the name "PainKiller" (that hatchet on the t-shirt for the_hatchetman is a nice touch). Shaded with pencil is ok. With background and a familiar-looking animal on the side. How much total?

Please have the format of the picture something that can be uploaded to use as a portrait for CB, and most details are visible as a small portrait.

Godpanda January 3 2008 6:35 PM EST

-I'll only take three (3) commissions at a time.

We can't call dibs until the first of mine are done! =D

[LittleRed]Calynne January 3 2008 7:31 PM EST

They can make their requests, I just won't start working on them until the first 3 are done. Its perfectly alright to let me know what they want.

Godpanda January 3 2008 7:39 PM EST

Darn, ;P

QBBarzooMonkey January 3 2008 10:45 PM EST

Okay, when my turn gets here I want a full body character portrait, in color:

Jaqueline, The Black Tiger.

She should be anthropormorphic and bipedal (your color example looks kind of like the way I would picture her), black with white stripes. She is an unarmed combat expert, and her clothes are usually red with black and gold; with trim or decorations in lizard or dragon themes.

Also, on a separate tangent, would you be interested in illustrating a scene? I'd pay you a lot more, and you could take as much time as you want...

:)

QBBarzooMonkey January 3 2008 10:58 PM EST

Ooh, you have a lot of color examples showing now o.O

Mikorya D. Rikard is the one I'm referring too (but no wings, and more tiger-like, etc.)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 January 3 2008 11:24 PM EST

The comrade portrait we talked about in PM :)

with a background probably, only one piece of it in color

It'll have 15 people in it, chibi version, I think we decided on

[LittleRed]Calynne January 3 2008 11:46 PM EST

Okies, so here's the list of people so far on my list:

Current:
DemonWolf: Fire Familiar, Ice Familiar, Steel Familiar. Full body; Color; BG; Preferably animals. 750k.

Waiting List:
OOTY: Not yet described.
PainKiller: Chibi, tall Chinese guy with glasses, sword, and light armor. Black and White. With Background and Familiar. 150k.Since a familiar is a second character, but its chibi, I added 50k.
BarzooMonkey: Jacqueline, the Black Tiger dressed in red/black/gold clothes with dragon decals; Full; Color. 200k.
DemonWolf: His other familiars. Gotta give other people a chance too, ya know. ;)

I'm probably going to rework my prices... especially for coloring, since that takes a lot of time and trial/error. And the more detailed a drawing, the more I'll have to ask, because it takes a long time to do. *glares at DW* =P

[LittleRed]Calynne January 3 2008 11:47 PM EST

And Slayer's commission. Forgot to put it in the list. =P

You'll be before DW's other familiars, too. ;)

QBOddBird January 4 2008 12:02 AM EST

Think this kinda guy:



But minus those axeblades. Take them off, and that makes one nice looking sword. Anywho. Chibify that guy, make it colour, and put him in front of flames.

Shouldn't be toooo terribly difficult, or at least I hope not...background wouldn't be extraordinarily difficult...

Thanks Calynne! You're awesooome

[LittleRed]Calynne January 4 2008 12:06 AM EST

*blinks* Waaaaaah... to draw like that one day. *drool*

[LittleRed]Calynne January 4 2008 3:59 AM EST

I finished the fire familiar... Click Here to View It

I'll get to work on the next one... hopefully this is cool enough for ya, DW. ;)

[LittleRed]Calynne January 4 2008 4:56 AM EST

Correction, this is the final rendition of that Fire Familiar drawing: Click Here To View

DW reminded me of a few things I forgot to do to it. Okay, now on to the ice familiar.

TheHatchetman January 6 2008 8:15 PM EST

hehe, that FF is a step up from the cow your chibi-you was drawing :P

Great stuff! ^_^

[LittleRed]Calynne January 7 2008 3:54 AM EST

That was a hippo!!!!! >_<

TheHatchetman January 7 2008 7:14 PM EST

Looks like both... Can we settle on Cippow? Sounds like a creature that would ram your SUV off the road... Imagine, you're just driving around, and suddenly... Kappow! :P

QBOddBird January 7 2008 10:42 PM EST

Awesome! Getting closer and closer to mine! :D

Also, when you finish with the list you've got now (long as it is), I might have a special request...out of the ordinary, but I'll be willing to pay extra, and it isn't difficult! :D

[LittleRed]Calynne January 7 2008 10:44 PM EST

Okies. I'm working on coloring the Steel Familiar now. I was going to draw the ice familiar, but the steel one came out instead. Don't ask me, I don't control the inspiration. >_>

I'll look forward to the request... should be interesting. ;)

Jamba in da Juice January 11 2008 6:41 PM EST

you know the character Gambit? Draw him in color, full body shot no background, holding a bow, since i have an elven long bow, i want it to be elvish (lord of the rings kind), i want him in a position where he's just done loading it with an arrow and charging that arrow up with kinetic energy, i want it so his bow is loaded but is still pointed at the ground (somehow that looks cool and most archers in movies do that). i hope this isn't too demanding.

[LittleRed]Calynne January 12 2008 11:55 PM EST

Not really... I should be able to figure it out. Gambit's an interesting person to draw, though, I'll have to look up some references so I draw him right. =P

Oh, and sorry about not getting the Steel Familiar done yet. I got mysteriously volunteered for a midnight shift these past three days and have been too tired to draw... On Monday I'll catch up with myself, be off midnight shift, and have the Steel Familiar finished at that time.

AdminNightStrike January 12 2008 11:58 PM EST

That looks like an Iconic character :) :)

Specifically, Krusk, a barbarian half-orc male :)

three4thsforsaken January 13 2008 12:02 AM EST

Woot! Cute Chibis! I think Carnage blender needs a little more cute. Maybe a cute theme?

And no I'm not sarcastic.

chuck1234 January 13 2008 2:02 AM EST

Hi Calynne, please check out the doll graphic on my char, that's my sister's and she wants me to get a new one; so can you do an anime version, sorta similar pose, and try making her look like Legally Blonde Reese Witherspoon, i can mail you sample photos if you want; i'd want to use that graphic lotsa places, so if you have any copyright etc legal stuff i'll pay extra. Please give me a quote, bye, chuck :)

[LittleRed]Calynne January 13 2008 4:27 PM EST

Ok... a bit out of order, but I did finish one of the drawings. I drew it at work tonight. ^_^


There you go, PainKiller! A tall Chinese man with a familiar, black and white, with a background. I hope you like it! Do post here when you send your payment... and your comments on your piece. ^_^ He was fun to draw!

[LittleRed]Calynne January 14 2008 6:14 AM EST

DW's Steel Familiar There he is, charging up for an attack! I thought he should personify the name "Steel Familiar" even though his attack is magic missile... oh well, such is life. I like him. ^_^ Now, to get the silly Ice Familiar out onto paper so I can get it done as well...

[LittleRed]Calynne January 20 2008 7:23 PM EST

I may not be able to draw for a couple days... I felt I was smart enough to know how to use a putty knife to scrape old sticky hooks off of my wall...

Well, the joke's on me and my thumb is currently in a bandaid. I'll try to work on DW's Ice Familiar and OBs barbarian guy... but it's not easy. xD

Stupid putty knife... should have a warning label or something... >_>

Jamba in da Juice January 21 2008 10:54 PM EST

i'm surprised there was no warning label, i guess no one has sued the company for that reason, now _that's_ a rare sight :P

[LittleRed]Calynne January 22 2008 10:28 AM EST

OOTY's Barbarian is finished! I'm not completely happy with it, since I couldn't get the shading right on his face... but I chalk that up to him being chibi. It's kinda hard to sit there and shade a chibi face. They just weren't meant to be shaded! xD Oh, and the eyes gave me trouble as well... but heck, I hope OOTY likes it!!!

Yes, DW, I am still working on your Ice Familiar... I'm sorry, the stupid creature just doesn't want to get drawn right now... but I promise, it'll get done soon! ^_^;;;;;

Oh, and people wanted to see original sketches of my finished works, so I've uploaded them to my website. You should be able to find them pretty easy. ;)

I completely forgot about jamba's request! He wanted Gambit... don't worry, Jamba, you're on the list now! xD

Colonel Custard [SeeD] January 25 2008 1:19 AM EST

Ok, I have a vision: A figure, tall and strong. Is he a man, or is he a panda? I dunno, but he's trained in the secret wisdom and martial arts of the mountains. He's always got a spare pair of bamboo chopsticks or bag of pretzels in the inside pocket of his flak jacket, for a quick snack or a quick smack-you-in-the-face. The Benelli shotgun slung across his back rarely is used, but when it does come into play, it is sure to cause Panda-monium!

Work with it. You know.

Black and white should be fine, as he is a Panda. Just so you know, I'm looking more for a Panda that is a man, rather than a man who is a Panda. Think Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-type thing, where it's more animal than human, but stands and talks and fights like a person.

Thanks Caly!

QBOddBird January 25 2008 1:26 AM EST

Absolutely fantastic! I applaud your artistic talents!

How much do I owe you for this, Calynne?

The Ice familiar is DONE!!!
Yes, DW, it is finally done! ^_^ I do hope you like it, because I sure do! It was difficult to make, seeing as there were NO tutorials on how to make snow effects... I kinda had to wing it. =3

Godpanda February 2 2008 1:51 PM EST

-_- That IF link completely and utterly killed CB for me. I couldn't even exit it or refresh. Had to ctrl alt delete to get back control, rofl.

Godpanda February 2 2008 1:53 PM EST

I want to go ahead and ask for a Jiggy =D We talked about the details, and would rather keep them a surprise. If you forgot though, CM me. Same as before. Color, background, etc.

Godpanda February 2 2008 2:01 PM EST

Oh, and beautiful work Caly. It really is. I'm very happy with all your work (though, heh, not with the time). But, I'm sending you an extra 100k.

[LittleRed]Calynne February 2 2008 8:28 PM EST

=P Like I said in my first post, if you want color, you gotta be ready to expect delays!

Thanks for the nice comments, and I'll see what I can do looking up references so I can draw Jiggy right...
