Pixelpixie's Spring Avatars [closed, will re-open late Spring/Summer] ~ will finish existing commisions Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Aloha Ahoy Everyone!
Welcome to my Spring Avatar shop! Where you can buy custom made avatars to suit yer pirate!
read on for more information on commissioning and pricing!



Digital Avatars :
My current style (this is what yours will resemble in style, shading etc. This is also the style of avatar I like to focus on. ) :


My early digital avatars:


Pricing:
A minimum offer of 48k (or the equivalent see below for payment options ) *past avatars have sold between 75-500k in value*
NOTE: more than one pirate will increase the price.
**I am aware that this is high pricing, however I know the value of my art and i am trying to keep my ques low to avoid getting overwhelmed by too many commissions. I would rather focus on quality than quantity ^_^**

Traditional Art:
Here are some examples of traditional art avatars i have made in the past.
Pencil Avatars: (pricing for pencil avatars are the same as for digital avatars)


Watercolor Avatars:


Pricing:
A minimum offer of 68k (or the equivalent see below for payment options )
NOTE: more than one pirate will increase the price.
**The prices for traditional art is higher due to the time it takes to create a picture as well as the cost of materials**

Clay-vatars:
These were created for a OM doll event and a familiar event. If you ABSOLUTELY want one of these; I may be willing to create one for you. However since there is a significant cost associated to myself in the clay they have a minimum price of 280k or the equivalent.



Premade Avatars (FOR SALE) 8k each :


Payment formats:
i will accept poe, black/gold/mystery(seasonal) boxes, RM's, deeds (of ship names I collect: Angelfish, Sunfish, blowfish & catfish ), pets, rare furni (sleeping turtles/piggies/ancient furni etc.) or familiars
I prefer Cerulean (since that's my main ocean)


(If you are in a dubloon ocean and really want a avatar you can PM me and we can try to work something out ~ I will accept LE ship deeds, Angelfish/Sunfish/Blowfish ships deeds/pets/fams/rare furni (eg. sleeping turtle/ancient furni etc.) as payment on dub oceans )

* Art quality bought depends on the amount that you offer; the more you offer above the minimum price, the better the quality and more time will be spent in the process.
*For dubloon oceans, you must PM me to arrange a date and time to meet for payment in puzzle pirates time - and specify which dubloon ocean we are meeting at.
* For digital art, you're welcome to ask me at any time for colour change (ex. If you changed your hair from blonde to black, or you changed your dress color from blue to orange, etc.) for a charge of 5% your original commission cost.
* All avatars come with a large 600*600 version
* Avatars will have a watermark on completed avatars till full payment has been made

Rules (In addition to the basic forum rules)
- Do not order art if you do not have the amount of poe offered
- Please don't steal/copy my artwork; and although I won't chase you down, I would love it if you could credit my artwork in your signatures/ wherever else you display my artwork out of respect :)

To commission a Avatar You can use the following form either by PM'ing me or posting to this thread.

Art Form:
~Name: (ex. Dagger)
~ Type: (digital, traditional or clay-vatars and whether you want it with or without a background. )
~Image/Avatar/Character Reference: (put the image of a character you want to be drawn here)
~Detail: (specific expression/ idea/ puzzle/ activity) optional ~
Also if you prefer YPP pirate style or fantasy/realistic style
~Offer: (amount in poe/items)


Thank you for your visit and interest!

Gotta say, this was better than I could have imagined!

The detail is just so fantastic, the monkey so cute, even the details on the jacket! With the pegleg and the feather!

Dare I say I think this is even better than the ones you made for the OMs? :P Yeap.

Yes, Dagger does have the added advantage of knowing what I like from a previous Avatar event thingy. (Which, might I add, was also fantastic beyond what I thought was possible! It's the Widow Queen one at the top.)

I have to say without a doubt, that this one right here is my favorite avatar I have ever commissioned over the past urm... 4? 5? years!

(Any other artists happening to read this, yes I loved all of yours too, but just this one much more :P Like that scene from the Simpsons movie where Flanders puts a mug of hot chocolate on the window sill for Bart to take, and puts a lot of extra toppings, this one is like the mug with the final topping.)

When I sent the order in, I honestly didn't really know what I wanted. I wanted Dagger to have her space. If there is anything I have learnt over the years, it's that... have a good idea for the general idea of an avatar, but allow the artist himself/herself to take their own artistic license, to do what they are comfortable doing.

Because if what you request is too specific and too much out of their "zone", it will turn out as best as they can make it, but you probs won't like it as much.

Also you have to keep in mind that Avatars are only 150x150. So if you request too much, the smaller details that the artist worked so hard on will be lost in translation (from large to small).

Anyway, a little derailing...

Dagger was very patient with me, especially since I didn't really know what I wanted at the beginning. A few back and forths over skype. Which worked pretty well considering we played on different oceans and in different timezones. xD

She also took many shots from all angles to ask which one I wanted. xD Gotta say, it was a rather tough choice because it was just so amazing, all around.

So well worth the wait.

11/10 would want another one....


...Just as soon as I can spare the PoE for it.

This is one Heck of a talented Lady, she askes you a few Qs about what you want....... and goes off to her little Arrrtist Cabin on the dock.

She has a think...maybe walks along the beach...picks up a bit of drift wood. Next thing you know, you get a PM because she has had a few ideas, then you skim them together like flicking pebbles on the beach.
You walk away and leave the Arrrtist to her Dreams.

And a few weeks later Bang a small cannon ball with a message rolls on to your deck! Ready come pick a Font!!

If you think this style of avatar is not to your taste, well your drink is Grog not Rum. Handmade takes time and for me was worth every bit of PoE.

An example of different style backgrounds that I've been playing with and a very detailed avvy (lots of tiny details,tho they tend to get lost in avvy size), at least you will also get a larger image to oogle at :)
