The Amazing Avatar Non-Shop! Reply to this Post

Ahoy! Welcome to my Non-Shop. It's not a shop because everything is free! I will soon be opening a real shop, but because I need some practice and examples, I'm starting here. The only thing I have so far is this:

an attempt at piratising my verball.
I'll be keeping a waiting list of people who want avatars here when Edit is fixed, and until then I might include one in further posts. Alternatively, I may just keep a pencil-and-paper version on my desk. I accept tips, and tipping customers will get bumped up the list, the bigger the tip, the bigger the bump! Everyone on the list will get one eventually however, so don't fret!

Non-payment and tips are accepted on each and every ocean!

Also, I am very likely to ignore the waiting list at times, and do the most specific ones first, simply because I have no imagination, and as such, can't think of what could happen in your avatar.

Okay.. I remember when I was just starting out with avatars... and I almost cried when it took a while for someone to want a free one, so I'm gonna be the first one to order here just so you could stop twiddling your thumbs and do somethin :)

Here is My Gallery to give you an idea of what I look like (I don't mind straight or curly hair). It would be nice if you could include my Octopus. And... I prefer to look evil rather than friendly. I would also like my my pirate initials Df on it. Is that enough for your imagination? /e giggles. Kk good luck and thanks :)

For future reference, I was kinda hoping for " I would like you to draw me sitting under a tree, stroking my pet cat." style descriptions. I'll try to think of something though, seeing as I don't have any other orders to get in the way...

Waiting list
Emieangel - (Partially computer-done)
Candiice - (sketched)
JD6627 - (sketched)
Killerj20 - (sketched)

I may not manage to computerise anything else for a while, It depends if I can get PhotoShop working in conjunction with my tablet...
I also need to work on some GCPP artwork, so I may be a bit slow...
If you want to see the work done so far, I can upload that without photoshop or the Wacom!

Quick update, my Wacom still isn't working, so we're back to the stone age tool - the mouse. The quality will be the same, but a bit slower due to me using the undo function a lot. I should have finished my first order in one or two hours.

Make sure your drivers are updated for the wacom tablet. There is no reason it should not work with any and all programs.

Also, you can add me to the list for when you do get things going again. Some recent images of my pirate. Your challenge is to draw Synful as an event host or island designer. Also, Synful no longer has the parrot but has a tan octopus instead.

Ok, so maybe I overestimated my mouse speed when I said one or to hours...
Anyway, here it is

Order #1

The hair's a bit weird, but I couldn't get it quite right. I may go back to it later as a kind of study of hair...

Synful: The pointer for the tablet and the mouse was very jumpy with photoshop, bouncing all over the place, so it wasn't working as I wanted it to. I think that was probably due to the massive amount of memory PhotoShop uses on my computer.
Anyway, it's stopped working completely now, but I will get it fixed soon.

As a side note:
I'm going to stop orders for a while, to allow me to get on top of all my ongoing projects...

Update:
I've finished all orders so far. I'm in France for the New year though, and I can't connect the laptop the avatars are on to the internet. Therefore I'm opening orders again, but I can't post anything until next year (insert exclqmation mark here: I can't find it on this supid french keyboard...)

Anyone want a place before redbeard? He didn't specify anything so that leaves space before him...

So maybe it wasn't quite what you had in mind... It was free, don't complain! If somethings badly wrong, I may change it based on how I'm feeling when you ask for it.

I don't know if this is the case, but when you mentioned this, it came to my mind that maybe you use Mouse Mode and it somehow got switched to Pen mode, which would explain the jumping around. It's happened to me a few times.

Also, sometimes when mine stops working, I can just reinstall the same drivers, and it works again.
