Wonderful, fascinating, beautiful terrors.
Who's the new guy who ripped off Rid's avatar.
That's Ridley's evil twin. Or good twin. Not sure, they seem to be on varying levels of evil...
I don't trust this new chap
All that I know is that he is...
Speaking of terrors. I'm kinda back
A terror that flaps in the night?
The cloud that rains on our hit parade?
Nah, that formation went out of style years ago.
Hi to you too, Lio. Sorry if I'm still not around much; my parents are going to be up in Michigan for a while, and between a 40-hour work week and needing to look after the house and 7 cats I've been run this side of ragged.
7 Cats? Ambers been busy?
Nah. If only it were that simple. Mom's rehabilitated a number of stray cats over the years, turning them from outdoor life to indoors. Much to my detriment, since it means that until she and Dad are able to get a semi-permanent home up in Michigan, I need to take care of all 7 of them.
Those who know me know that I'm obsessed with cats, but I'd prefer to draw the line at two or three. The fact that we have a mostly-finished basement is the only thing keeping me from going crazy. ()^_^
But since you've mentioned Amber, I may as well toss this out there. I can't recall if you've seen it yet or not, but I was able to get a picture of Amber commissioned earlier in the year.
Very cool. I always loved commissioning artist. I used to commission Pip from Sins all the time. Don't have the money for it these days.
I always thought her cat form was bigger.
Admittedly Maine Coons are pretty big, but to the best of my knowledge they don't get much bigger than this. I mean, Ambush is already a bit past Amber's knees in the picture, even discounting his ears. (For context, Amber's about 5'5".)
Solely to satisfy my curiosity: on average when you commissioned something from Pip, how much did it cost?
A single character was $20. I'd have to go deeper into my old emails to find other pricing. It's been Nine years since since I've commisioned him so I don't know if the price has changed or if he's still doing them. I know he has Patreon now.
I don't think there are many artists out there I like enough to commission. Maybe Phil Foglio, but I imagine his prices would be astronomical.
From what I've seen of the works he's done, I'd say it was pretty decent quality for the price.
By contrast, that picture up there was mighty expensive. Taking into account the number of subjects, the background and the art style, the total cost was around $103. Normally I wouldn't spend that much, but I was having trouble locating someone who not only drew both humans and cats but whose Commission counter wasn't closed off, and I really wanted someone with actual skill to draw a picture of Amber.
Isn't he the guy who draws Girl Genius?
