Hey Everyone,

Another year has passed and once again its time to look back and see how I have progressed in my 2012 goals, as well as looking ahead to new goals in the upcoming year.


---------------------------------------------------------------------

2012 previous goals:

1: Finish off KOF REDUX cast from 95-98: I am proud to say this is DONE! Not only have I done the entire KOF cast from every game up until 98, I think I only have a couple of characters left to finish up to KOF 2000! And that doesn't even include all the characters I have done out of order from even newer games in there series.

2: More original Digital Ninja Content: Another big check mark in my completed goals column, in the beginning of 2012 I set out to draw a brand new original character every day (Now entitled "Digital Ninja Dailies" in my gallery folder) and I am happy to say I knocked out over 100 original characters in 2012! Not all of the characters are keepers, but it was a blast to keep my pencil sharp for almost 4 straight months! If you haven't seen the gallery yet, I invite you to take a look: digitalninja.deviantart.com/ga…

3: More Digital Ninja tutorials: Ah, another year another let down on this one :(, sorry about this guys. I really wanted to get more tutorials done but I think the wall that I kept hitting is that see a lot of great tutorials all over the net that already covers most of the stuff I would have done, and a lot of them are videos! So the need for another Digital Ninja tutorial in the grand internet universe when there are already thousands out there to choose from doesn't seem like it would be the best use of my time. I would rather spend that time doing new art :).

So 2 out 3 of three resolutions accomplished makes me pretty happy, and it just energizes me to reach for new lofty goals in 2013, speaking of which ......

---------------------------------------------------------------------


New goals for 2013:

1. Finish KOF REDUX: I know, I know, "DN are you insane!?" is what you guys are probably thinking right now. To be honest I am not sure how I will actually end KOF REDUX, whether I will just cut it off at some point, or will actually fill out the entire roster, I sort of feel like I am in the dregs of the cast now, and instead of actually having a list of characters to REDUX I really want to do, now I am kinda just taking requests from those characters that have not been drawn yet. What's actually kind of interesting is ALOT of requests I get are of characters I have already done! So that kind of says something when my visitors are running out of characters for me to work on.

HOWEVER!!! This does lead me into my next big goal which I think many of you will find interesting (I hope):

2. Start a brand new REDUX series!: I have had dozens of requests for me to start a new REDUX series over the years and now I am starting to mull over in my brain what that new series might be. If you think you have an awesome idea feel free to comment and speak up. Whatever it is, its gotta be unique, and its got to be interesting.


3. An original Digital Ninja comic series: Another goal I have made before but have yet to accomplish. It's not like I do not have plenty of cool comic ideas and characters with interesting stories to tell, trust me I have literally dozens of story lines and several sketch books completely filled with character designs and ideas I would love to make. I just need to hone in and pick 1 idea that really sparks my creative drive, and I feel 2013 is the year I finally jump in!

4. A Digital Ninja original character series: This is less of a goal and more of a 'Would be nice to do' kinda thing. Essentially I want to turn my Digital Ninja Dailies into a colored series. I have already colored a couple of the characters, but I would like to do a bunch more and make a whole series out of it. This is going to be a time management thing, if I have the time you will see more fleshed out colored characters, but the other goals come first!

So there you have it, my goals for 2013 all lined up. One thing is for sure, if I hit all of these goals, its going to make my DA page very interesting over the coming year, that I promise you :).

So be sure to keep checking back for new updates, things are just getting started!

Please make sure that if you want a background on your commission that you specify what type of locale and lighting you would like. If not specified I will choose the background and lighting for you.

---------------------------------------------------
WHAT IS ACCEPTED FOR COMMISSIONS:

A reference image and or thorough description MUST be provided by you, as well as a name for your character.

Characters from comic books, videogames, anime/manga, cartoons.

If you want the character altered at all a thorough description MUST be provided by you, if not the character will look like their commercial version.


WHAT I DO NOT ACCEPT FOR COMMISSION:

Offensive material
---------------------------------------------------

COMMISION PROCEDURE AND TURNAROUND TIME:


How it works:

If you wish to commission a piece of art work, please send me a note through my Deviant Art page (digitalninja.deviantart.com/) with the following format:

BE SURE TO ADD THIS IN YOUR SUBJECT LINE: "DN COMMISSION REQUEST (Put character name here)"

Your Name

Commission type:

Example: Single Character/Bust Portrait/Cell shaded/No background

Character(s):

Name/Gender/Series(or OC)

Reference Images:

Links to the images are fine, the more reference images the better and more accurate the art will come out

Commission Description:

If you want a background or you want specific coloring on the characters. Example: “ I want Ryu from Streetfighter 2 wearing a red top”



Once I look over your commission request I will send you back a note letting you know whether it has been accepted or not. I will also keep a commission slot status updated on my DeviantArt page: digitalninja.deviantart.com/

Once a commission has been accepted you will be prompted to transfer 1/2 of the specified fee to the paypal account given. I will send you a note once I see the transfer of payment and begin the rough sketch for your approval.

---------------------------------------------------

What to expect:

I will complete commissions in the order they are received.

Most illustrations will take 3-5 days for completion after sketch approval. Once the first half of payment is received a rough sketch of your commission will be sent to you for approval. Once the sketch has been approved the work will begin immediately on the final digitally colored version, no line work changes can happen beyond this point. Once completed, a low resolution watermarked version of the colored piece will be sent for your final approval. Please keep in mind at this stage changes can only be made to the colors, lighting and small details of the art. Once you have approved the colored version, the second half of the fee must be paid in order to receive the full size, hi-resolution non-watermarked final art.

I hold the right to use any commissioned art as portfolio material, or deviant art for self promotion or art books (All original characters will be credited with their respective creator).


---------------------------------------------------

PAYMENT:

Payments happen in 2 stages, the first 1/2 of the fee must be paid up front, the second half will be paid for the hi-res non watermarked version of your commission.

For Pencils only: Payment MUST be submitted in full up front.

If you fail to pay the commission fee you will not receive the artwork.

Payments will be accepted via paypal. No work will begin until the first half of payment is received. All sales are final.

I am a reasonable person, if there is a legitimate issue or grievance with the commissioned artwork please let me know and I will do my best to find a solution we both can be happy with.
