Darqx Commissions
Because you don't really need that money for food XD
How to order

:bulletred: Note me with what you want, including all relevant details, references etc! There is a form at the end of this journal if you need a bit of help setting things out. Once we work out what you want and if I can do it, then I will note you what the full commission price is and my Paypal details.

:bulletred: Payment is via Paypal - I require payment first before I do your picture. You'll also need to pay Paypal tax in addition to the commission price.

:bulletred: Once I receive payment I will doodle up a quick preliminary sketch for your approval. Once approved, I will then finish the picture. Revisions are best made in the sketching/lineart stage, although some minor colour correction revisions can be done nearing the end of the project.

:bulletred: You will receive your commission digitally (either a jpg or png), at a fairly high res (between 200-300dpi). It will be sent to your email address.

Copyright stuff

:bulletred: I retain certain rights to the drawing (such as the right to show it off in my gallery, in my portfolio or as promotional material for myself etc). On the version I give you I'll put a little signature in the corner/somewhere out of the way so you can remember who drew it lol.

:bulletred: You can use your commission for whatever personal reason you like as long as you credit me. Please DO NOT try and make any commercial profit/revenue from it (ie reselling it etc) or pretend that you drew it :)

Sometimes i might have a contest or giveaway where people can get one for free. Or there are also lots of good icon makers out there that also do this for affordable prices and stuff :)

Otherwise all you need is 300 moooore :dummy:

Why does everyone who is good ask for real money. I finally have points. Maybe I'll do a Sereana and give them away.
Darqx Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's because real world money has a lot more real world applications than DA points :) Also thanks for the compliment! :lol:

At the moment the only things i do for points are simple DA avatars, and even then it's the point equiv of a real world price :XD:

I collect points to do giveaways or purchase subs for others whenever i do contests or mini-games with prizes, maybe if you don't end up commissioning people you could do that too :thumbsup:

So I could get an avatar from you? And then I could choose from two awesome avatars? 0.0

I had a thought of making a contest to get this one person out into dA a bit more. He's a writer and I wish he would post more stuff. I dunno. I just suddenly have a ton of points and it's like I think they'll disappear if I don't spend them!
Darqx Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah pretty much lol. Though my avatars are like...$5 AUD (~400 :points:) base price which is pretty cheap for a simple animation but not everyone shares that sentiment here as they're all starving students :B That or they dont realise 1 point =/= $1, idk XD

I can safely tell you that it's sincerely the other way round - spending them will make them disappear lol :P Well you could do that if you wanted to, Ser gave them to you so they're yours to spend now.
EllaKey Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Lol, I figured the whole point to dollar thing out while staring blankly as Sereana gave gifts right and left. As soon as school is out I want to do something nice for her. *isn't a starving student thanks to outrageous meal plan, but broke all the same*

I think I want to commission you for an avatar, if you tell me how I do that? And the rest of my points I'll hoarde for other uses. I know they won't disappear (unless suddenly I'm banned for something which I don't think will happen...yet...), but the compulsion is still there. I think it's just human nature? Or maybe me being stupid. Or both. :iconsweatdropplz:
