A.K.A. kits

Used to be huge into horses. Now am only slightly into horse show, despite abiding love for characters. If you want to read all my old horse stories (which are much better than my horse pictures) goto fimfiction.

Commission Guide

:bulletgreen: What I will draw

  • Ponies! I can draw any of the basic body shaped ponies without much trouble. I can also draw OCs, but I'll need refs and color pallets.
  • Scenery: I've done both exterior and interior FIM-style buildings and landscapes. Detail isn't really a problem for me.

:bulletred: What I won't draw

  • Gore or excessive violence (think PG-13 max). Rape, murder, etc. I don't have a problem with doing r34, but I will not answer questions about that except through email. Keep it off of DA please.
  • OC x Mane shipping. It just ain't gonna happen.
  • Foal Shipping
  • OCs to which I do not have the creator's permission.

I'm trying to give a broad idea of what I will and won't do. I may say "no" even if something appears to be within the above guidelines. If you have any questions, feel free to message me on DA, tumblr, FimFic, or email (kitsuneymg at gmail)

:bulletblue: What types of drawings?

I do a lot of different types of drawings. Check out my gallery sub-folders for a better idea of what each type looks like.

  • Graphite Drawings. By drawings, I mean fully shaded and detailed (unless you *wanted* something looser for a reason.)
  • Markers. Copic markers on Strathmore drawing paper. Colorful and vibrant. Can do background too. Sadly, since these are dye-based colors, they will fade if placed in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. My scanner's red response is a bit low, so most pinkish colors are actually MORE vibrant than depicted in my gallary.

Pricing is simple.

Graphite is $10/pony. Markers are $20/pony. Background beyond extremely simple ones are about $10. This really depends on how complex the background is.

Comics: This is a "let's talk". There's no way to begin to hedge this with all variables. A good base point would be $100/page though. Lots of drawing, lots of layout work, and the whole "coming up with story" thing. A page is a single 11x17 sheet of bristol with a 9.5x15 "living" area.

How to commission me

Send me a DA note, email (kittyhawk.contrail at gmail), or a message on tumblr with a description of what you want me to do. I'll get back ASAP with a response.

Once I accept a commission, I'll get you a sketch of what I think you're wanting. Typically within a week. I can change things here, so it's important you like the layout and content. Once you okay it, I'll get to work on the final piece.

Once I finish the final piece, I'll message you for payment. Then I'll upload and/or mail the piece to you.

Always interesting finding authors on here. Your art is superb.

Also I feel you with the human figure thing, it's a struggle ;] Look up Riven Phoenix's "Structure of Man" course. It's a little dry, but is THE best tool for learning humans.

Thanks! I'm not too used to hearing that.

I think da's text interface is awful. I know that I switched over to fimfiction once that site went online. Da does PDFs okay, but the character limit and awful formatting probably chase most prospective authors off.

I'll check out that book. I dunno when I'll have time to devote to it. My twins have eaten most of my life since they were born. Heh.

It's a video series, I'd look for a torrent of it.

Yeah I heard that happens, sorry about kids xD

I just read Twilight's List, all the way through, in one day. It is most definitely the best TwiDash fanfic I have read thus far. ^^
