(EDIT 4/25/2013— I’ve made some small changes to my Star in a Daily Doodle/Commissions program, and I’ve added a brand spanking new fancy GIF option!)
Does the loneliness get too much to handle sometimes? Don’t you wish there was a way to deal with the madness of modern life?
I found the solution— STARRING IN YOUR VERY OWN DAILY DOODLE! Or even owning the original piece of art! Everything is handmade, no Photoshop witchcraft is afoot here (except for gifs).
If you DONATE HERE:
$25 OR MORE: You get to star in your very own Daily Doodle! I will draw you as sexy, as scandalously roguish, or as cute as you really are inside.
$50 OR MORE: You get to OWN the original art of your very own Daily Doodle! Or, you can purchase an old favourite of yours— just ask!
$100 OR MORE: I will create an original GIF that stars you! They take longer to make and are fancy, thus they cost more.
It’s very simple, I swearsies. I am doing this because it is FUN, and because I am broke as a skunk. EXTREMELY broke. PATHETICALLY poor! Could there BE any better reasons?
That’s all the IMPORTANT details, but if you wish to know more about the process of Starring In or Purchasing a Daily Doodle, read below:
With the $25 dollar donation, you can also ask me to draw a family member, a specific animal— practically anything. It doesn’t have to be YOU in the Doodle if you don’t want that. I am remarkably flexible.
Restrictions: I stay away as far away as possible from direct Pop Culture references (not gonna draw or reference celebs, TV shows, etc) and I generally don’t do any work on this site that is overtly sexual. The end product HAS to fit the tone and spirit of the rest of the work, with the goal being that you get a piece that you’re happy with and fits seamlessly with the rest of the Daily Doodles.
Again: EVERY STORY HAS TO FIT IN WITH THE REST OF THE SITE. Some people have wanted to be drawn as famous characters or in non-story based glamour drawings. There’s nothing wrong with that sort of thing, but it doesn’t fit on this site and the STORY of the drawing has to fit as well— I will make the story have the normal layers of thought put into it to pair with the drawing, but it has to fit with “what I do”.
With the $50 dollar donation, you get to own the original art of the Doodle “Starring You”, and I will ship ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. However, the shipping has to be on top of the $50 dollar donation, and I will ship it as quickly or cheaply as you like (using USPS rates, I can give you estimates of what shipping would be if ya like). I’ve struggled to make timely deliveries due to being crazy poor (for realsies), but I am streamlining how I do things so it’ll be less of an issue for now.
After receiving your Donation, I will email you gushfully thanking you and we begin the process of figuring out your Daily Doodle. I will email several different ideas to choose from, and I will do all I can to make us both happy with the end result.
How Big are the Drawings? It can vary, but generally 7 inches by 9 inches. If ya want ‘em bigger, we can talk!
If you’re an artist or writer who wants to get your site out there, think of this as an advertisement of sorts! I’d be telling everyone go to follow your site, and you’d be promo’d to over 150k Tumblr followers by starring in a Daily Doodle. I know that doesn’t matter to everyone, but it matters to people who wanna get an audience for their work…!
IT’S AS EASY AS THAT!
I love you all, and the Daily Doodles I’ve done starring people so far have been a lot of fun. I hope it keeps up!
Message me if you got any questions or concerns. :-)
