UPDATE 6/02/12Thanks to everyone who participated! I'll have your artwork completed and sent to you soon!

Having just completed my last batch of commissions, I'm ready to start a new one. But this time, I'm dusting off a practice I tried the first couple times I did these $10 drives, and I'm picking a theme! And the theme this time is...JIM HENSON CREATIONS! That means anything from the Muppets, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, Storyteller, Labyrinth, Emmett Otter, Dark Crystal...well, the list goes on and on. It's all fair game, and for me, the more obscure the better! Now, for those of you who prefer it when I'm open to drawing anything, don't worry. This is just something I want to try for this drive. I'll return to the old ways soon enough.

UPDATE 5/27/12 I'm adding a small concession to this drive--if you have a non-Henson character (an OC, or some pop culture character) that you'd like to be drawn WITH a Henson character, I'll accept it!

*The first ten people who send me a note here on DA with a suggestion to draw, AND send me payment for it, will be put on the list and have their request honored.   
*For just $10, I will draw your request, and will e-mail you a black and white digital file of the artwork.
*Be sure to give me your e-mail address so I can send you the art when it's done, unless it's the same address that's listed on your PayPal statement.
*You CAN request more than one character in a single drawing. Just know that it is $10 per character.
*You CAN request more than one drawing.
*Elaborate backgrounds are an extra $10
*Your request will NOT be locked in until I receive payment. Do NOT just write me with a request and assume your spot is saved. It's first pay, first serve. I accept PayPal, and you can access my account at:
*When sending me notification that your payment has been sent to my PayPal, please include your REAL NAME as well as your DA handle, and the name of the cartoon character you've paid me to draw.
*THIS OFFER DOES NOT INCLUDE ORIGINAL ART--JUST DIGITAL FILES! I needed to make that clear since there's been confusion in the past.
*These commissions are only $10 per character--a very good, affordable, reasonable deal. So any requests for me to go back and change a drawing in any way will require an additional $10.
*I DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT I WILL POST YOUR COMMISSION IN MY GALLERY! It's nothing personal. You are more than welcome to post anything I draw for you on your own page. Just be sure to give me credit for the line work (and if it's a drawing of my characters, credit at their creator), and put in a link to my DA page.

It can take between 1 and 2 weeks for commissions to get completed, but I always leave my customers satisfied. So what're you waiting for? Send me those requests before the list gets filled!

I'm sorry I missed it... but perhaps I'll jump in for the next commission.

Oddly enough, I did have an idea for a Henson-inspired artwork (since Dark Crystal was one of my favorite movies of all time).

I'll start up a new one soon.

I think it's just an off week.
Memorial Day weekend probably took away a lot of your regular visitors. I know I didn't go to some of the sites I normally go to until today or yesterday.
Theme probably thins the crowd a bit too.
But as long as you don't limit it to Tick Characters you should be fine.
JayFosgitt Featured By Owner May 31, 2012  Professional Artist
You're probably right, Ryan. I'm ditching the theme for future drives. As far as trying to time these drives around major holidays, I'm just going to hope for the best.

By the way, you're not looking for a new desktop wallpaper, are you? Obviously with color and all that, it falls outside the $10 drive, but you have some fun ideas to draw, and I'm happy to accommodate if you need something.

I think it's a cool idea of you doing theme based commissions :) , but I also think the reason why your commissions list is fulling up so slowly is that not many people know that much about Jim Henson's work outside The Muppets Show, Sesame Street, and a few of his other movies & other TV series (and that is just sad). :(
JayFosgitt Featured By Owner May 31, 2012  Professional Artist
Certainly understandable. of course, the more recognizable characters like the Muppets are still fair game, but not enough people seem to realize that.

Well, how long do you usually leave these up for...just until the slots fill up?

Might just want to put a timer on them like a week or something like that just to keep things flowing and you're not sitting around waiting for people to stop by. Also keep in mind sir, it may not be the theme, per se; people might just not simply have the funds at the moment. I know my idea I was planning on asking you long before you came up for the theme :D

Just random thoughts :nod:
JayFosgitt Featured By Owner May 30, 2012  Professional Artist
And good thoughts, Chadly. In the future, I'm giving folks less time to decide.
chadporter Featured By Owner May 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed - and if they miss out, well, there's always next time :nod:
