The Request Thread

Title is pretty self explanatory. Now a lot of us aren't exactly artistic, so post here requests of specific characters. With any luck, a kind soul shall make them for you. I guess I will start off with mine. Artorias of the Abyss from Dark Souls:

No one was really showing interests in doing requests for this before the game released. I'm gonna bet you'd be pretty hard pressed to find anyone willing to takes your requests, and I think your best bet if you want something drawn is to commission someone.

Artists tend to like commissions, because then they get some money out of it at least.

Considering how much work would actually go into a character page for Legasista, I'd say your looking at about $15-$20 a character. Maybe someone would be generous enough to do it for $10.

...*Has a character he might pay for* Though, that could be very iffy legal-wise...

...Um.

NISA? Is it against that legal stuff if people get money for making character sheets?

Paying for requests? Tch. Those are commissions, my dear.

I suppose not, but commissions for this kind of thing are...well, wrong. Especially when there are like 130 characters made and shared for no asking price.

I also find the idea of anyone paying half of the game's price for a set of sprites pretty ridiculous in itself, but hey, that's just me.

Exactly, you'd just be ripped-off. :lol:

I think it's best if we don't have a thread openly endorsing payment, since it could easily involve copyrighted work, which means someone's getting paid to emulate copyrighted material. That could potentially be not good.

If you want to express your desire that a certain character be created, and someone were to contact you privately about it and you worked out some kind of agreement, there's nothing we can do to stop you. But I don't think it's in our best interests to foster the public advertisement of paid commissions for this kind of thing.

Seems reasonable. Thanks, Houk. ^^



That said, I'd really love to add Aselia Bluespirit (interestingly, NIS actually helped with the game she's from). Are there any artists who are willing to make sprites?
