*stares down at you* o _o
I actually drew a Mecha-Buizilla before. owo *looks for it*
Not as FNAF-styled, but it was the closest thing I’ve drawn so far!
the fact that there have been no leaked nudes in my dashboard proves that i’m following the right people
Not as effective you lose u Hu
and through it all
this picture is still the best thing I have ever drawn
And that’s basically it!
There’s probably a lot more I could explain but I really need to go to bed >u>;
Wanted to get this ask answered tho cus it seemed like a lot of fun! And it was! So thank you for the question, Anon ;u;!
*shakes* ; -;
PRESS PLAY AND WATCH THE GIF
I WAS EXPECTING SOME REALLY CREEPY MUSIC AND THEN THIS HAPPENED. I cant breathe. I can’t stop laughing.
I don’t know if I’ve ever laughed that loudly before. I was NOT expecting that!
LMFAO IM LAUGHING SO HARD I CANHT
can i just say that i really fucking love tumblr
Seriously the best thing ever! Thank you for making my day tumblr! =)
I FUCKING KNEW WHAT WAS COMING
how much is a loaf of bread? hm? $3? $5?
At my local grocery store, bread is about $4.50 for a decent size italian loaf. If I make $7.25 and hour, that means I’d have to work 37 and a half minutes for a Loaf of bread.
but hey, that’s not so bad right? Work two hours and you’ll have a sandwich, eh?
Oh hey, turns out I also need toilet paper, rice, chicken, some veggies, a can of soup, and some cereal. (to name a few basic groceries one might need on a budget) we’ll round those things down to $25 just to make the math easier.
at $7.25 an hour I’ll have to work about 3 and a half hours for basic groceries.
That doesn’t include bills or gas or all the other groceries I need, That’s ONE quick trip to the store and I already have to work half a day just for that.
You don’t understand Anon, my pages could take HOURS if not DAYS. Between the sketching, inking, colouring, lettering, and finishing it’s taken at least a full two day’s work if not longer for each page.
I have a job that pays me beans, I cannot afford to post more pages a week without compensation. I literally cannot afford to do that. Not to mention the idea that art is only worth minimum wage cheapens the amount of work and effort that goes into producing it. I should be making WELL ABOVE minimum wage for my art via page count and commissions but it’s this damn “deviant art” mindset that makes people feel like they’re being swindled for paying a livable wage to artists. It’s rude and childish and I ask that you please stop considering artists as less worthy of affording a normal life.
You can either pay me what I ask for what you want or stop complaining about what I already give you for free.
I cannot fucking stand people who tell illustrators that something they produce is too expensive.
Yall motherfuckers want cheap? Go get some paper, get a fucking pencil and then draw it your motherfucking selves because nobody freelancing on the internet who hasn’t even half made it in the illustration world is charging you ANYTHING close to industry pricing even when some of us are as good if not better. Why? Because of people like Anon. Your name must be out there and known to charge anything close to what your time and skill is worth. Yet still? You are paying for my effort, my time, my blood, sweat and tears and a lifetime of learning my trade.
A cheap page for yo ass is a piece of paper I haven’t touched yet.
(As a freelancer I cannot staaaaaaaaaaaaaand people who pull this dogshit.)
$100 is pretty cheap for a page.
Basic math, for Anon up there: Break that $100 down into an hourly rate. Factor in materials. Factor in skill and schooling and experience. Bear in mind that a page rate *at all* means there’s a good chance it’s work-for-hire, which means that $100 a page might be all the artist gets, ever.
And then, when you’ve done that math, think about what that means in terms of how few comics artists make a living hourly wage.
Want a pro artist, anon? Pay them like a fucking pro.
I’d like to add the a professional of any stripe has the duty to themselves, and the right to charge a rate based on his skill level and the work he or she puts in.
I will do my girlfriendly duty and reblog this every time I see it on my dash (usually with more and more amazing commentary)
PAY YOUR ARTISTS!

Hey everyone !! I’m opening commissions for the school year !
Rattarie here ! As the title says, I need a new laptop ! My goal is to save up enough for a Lenovo laptop for when I head off to university next year, because my current one is getting pretty old. So I’d like to ask you guys for some help !
My current goal is to save up $750+ to add to the money I already have saved up !
TIER 1: your basic transparent picture! Comes with shading and an outline around your character! Full-body unless stated otherwise. +$5.00 per extra character
TIER 2: a simple background to put your character against! Usually a simple landscape or something else easy! +$5.00 per extra character
TIER 3: a drawing of your character with a complex backdrop! Can be either lined or in a more painterly style depending on the style! +$7.00 per extra character
TIER 4: last but not least, you can order a painting! These usually take me around two days to complete depending on how complex it is! +$10.00 per extra character
** I’m most comfortable drawing feral/pokemon, but don’t hesitate to ask about anthro commissions ! Mild NSFW is no problem (nudity, etc) but you must be 18+ to order, and nothing too hardcore, okay?
CONTACT: the best way to get in touch with me is through email! send me what you’d like at firstname.lastname@example.org — don’t forget to include reference pictures! I’ll be sending you the file when I’m done through email too
PAYMENT: payment is due half-way through ! I’ll send you the sketch and the layout, and after you find it to your liking, I’ll start filling it in once the payment has been sent !
I’ll be accepting FIVE commissions right off the bat, before closing them to be completed ! Thanks so much guys !
this was probably one of the saddest moments of my childhood
