I saw this thread in the minecraft subreddit - www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/com… and thought it would be awesome to make coloring pages for the kids who like this game.

If anyone is interested, I want to put together a collection of coloring pages that parents can print out (or for yourself...!).

Guidelines for easy printing:

Have your image be around 8.5x 11, standard computer paper size.
At least 150dpi.


I'll set up a gallery on my website if this gets any interest - be sure to tell me how you want to be attributed. I will also be doing slight editing to standardize everything in the collection itself, probably a zip file with everything in it.

Just one picture this week, finishing up a skull/crossbones/biohazard sticker for someone that I started a while back. This actually has a very high chance of being posted on deviantart this week! It may turn into a t-shirt design one day, too.

I decided to get back in the habit of posting artwork, partly to encourage myself and partly to work on being social again.

So here's the first set, from the past week:

Still messing with the settings and stuff, but it's pretty neat so far.

I'm going to a Renaissance Festival and have long hair, but I don't really know how to style hair. Suggestions? I'm going as a gypsy type character.

This is my hair:

Never formally announced this in my journal, so here it is. :) The derby theme was to make a t-shirt inspired by the title of a show, and I chose Firefly.

Interested in a commission?

$10/hr for private commissions*

(see Other Pricing/Explanations for other commission types)


Copyrights vs. Rights.


This is how I understand copyrights and rights in regards to pictures. If I draw a picture of your character, it goes something like:
picture (c) Alexandrea Zenne
characters (c) yournamehere
So, you own the characters in the picture, and I own the actual picture. Which means I can't go off and use your characters wherever, and you can't go off and use my picture past what private commission indicates.

But, if you want me to draw something like, say, a red oriental type dragon that you want to print out and put on your wall - the picture is copyright me, and you can't use the picture for anything beyond what a private commission indicates.


How it works
- I use my Gmail address - thesillykoneko@gmail.com - to discuss the commission.
- For updates on the picture, I use Google's Picasa album. You can look at works in progress anytime on the web.
- To track time, I enter it into Google Spreadsheets, and you can view a constantly updated time sheet anywhere on the web.

- No, you don't need a Google account, but as google is completely awesome, I think you should try it out. XD

-See "Payment" for information on how transactions are carried out.


Other pricing/Explanations

The per hour rate rises depending on the use (website, commercial, exclusivity etc). It will be worked out on a case-by-case basis.

25 May 2007 *A private commission means that it will be for your personal, non-commercial use. Essentially, when you commission me, we will outline what you want to do with the picture and that will be that - I don't want to list the instances where it can or can't be used in this paragraph because it's really easy to twist words around. Most of the time I find personal uses acceptable. :)

Here's a list of things I've run into. This is not exhaustive:
-Re-using the picture as a logo for a website, even if it is non-profit, doesn't fall under private commission use.
-Using it in a post signature on a forum edited is allowed, if the text "Original Art by Alexandrea Zenne" is visibly included. Always direct interested parties to www.alexandreazenne.deviantart.com. If they ask about prices, direct them to this journal, as my prices change over time and a price you paid doesn't always apply.
-Other than re-sizing the picture and minor editing for signatures on forums as detailed above, you cannot edit or alter the picture



Payment
An upfront fee of $20 dollars is to verify that you are the owner of the paypal address you gave me, and for me to ensure payment for the first few hours of work. It goes to the overall price of the picture.

After that, payment will be done in installments - for instance, for every five hours of work, deposit the amount that five hours equals.

If you're working on a budget, you can tell me what you want done, and how many hours to do it in - I will do my best to make a quality product in that timeframe, but don't expect a full-body realism picture in five hours :) I'll give you an estimate on what I can do in the time you need.

Rush work - The rate for work that you need in a very close deadline is relative to how many hours you need in a week. I'm trying to figure out a percent, but I'm bad at math. XD

IMPORTANT NOTE:

I am not favouriting pictures at the moment. Google Accelerator messes with Devart and I don't remember to turn it off all the time.

Random reminders to myself; if this shows up as a new journal, I'm sorry. o o;



*finish auction picture
*gift-art: guanobaron, Wendi
*colour that picture
I'M GONNA GET A TABLET FOR MY BIRTHDAY! :DDDDDD

:whee:

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

IMPORTANT NOTE:

I'm not favouriting pictures at the moment; Devart does that by itself. Sorry for any confusion. ^^
