Brand new commission info changes that aren't new! Just rehashed, yay!


Basic Pony Mare v2.0 by GatesMcCloud
:bulletgreen: Basic Pony Mare v2.0 based templates start at 5$(no points). They can be repurposed to fit OC's or canon ponies easily. These are meant more for simple profile pics with no backgrounds, but can include them for extra.


Twilight the Lost, Queen of Chaos by GatesMcCloudQueen Crystalestia, Sombra's Prize by GatesMcCloudApplejack, The Deceiver by GatesMcCloudAkhem the Twice Cursed by GatesMcCloudWesklaforn, Delastrix of the Draconic Commonwealth by GatesMcCloudAnastashas by GatesMcCloudGuardians of Harmony by GatesMcCloudStarman Dx by GatesMcCloud
:bulletgreen: Non template based character pics start at 7$(no points) and scale with complexity, i.e., size, action, characters, detail, that kind of stuff. Non template based character pics are meant for non standard or unique characters (basically anything nonpony) who have to be made from scratch. These generally have simple backgrounds that are easy to make but do not necessarily require them. Backgrounds do factor in when determining estimates.



The Tree of Life by GatesMcCloudYou're Interrupting Our Revenge! by GatesMcCloudTwilight's Library, Golden Oaks Library by GatesMcCloudSkitchverse Banner (working title) by GatesMcCloudRainbow Dash's Room by GatesMcCloudPonyville Train Station by GatesMcCloud
:bulletgreen: Character Scenes or just action scenes in general start at 20$(no points) and scale with complexity. These are generally scenes for characters, but more so these usually have elaborate backgrounds that make use of referenced sources. These are a significant time investment as making specific backgrounds is very time consuming and does factor into price. If you're unsure if the commission you're looking falls under this category just ask me during negotiations. I'm more than willing to work out which best fits what you're looking for. I provide, free of charge, any element or elements of the scene separated per request. I usually have to make characters separate from the scene so it's basically a free profile pic when you pick one of these.

:bulletgreen: Comic pages and the like start at 30$(no points) and scale with complexity. These represent alot of work put into them, especially if I have to develop scenes or even write and panel stuff from just an idea. Please send me all the information you have for what you're planning when looking to commission a comic page or cover as it will help immensely in planning, and pricing. I can fully design any comic you have in mind and will offer discounts on multiple pages. If you'd like to hire me (Oh joy of joys!) for a comic series I'd be happy to negotiate.



Commission Gallery - Please check out my commission gallery to see what others have commissioned me for. You may find something similar to what you're thinking of. Otherwise check my entire gallery for anything that matches what you're looking for, it's extremely helpful in helping me design your commission.



IMPORTANT INFORMATION
:bulletred: My work is strictly PG-13 at tops for all subjects. If its pony based I stay true to the spirit of the show. If you're not sure just ask.

:bulletred: Color isn't an extra fee, I am a digital artist that makes use of vectors, so its automatic. Just make sure to tell me if you'd prefer black & white only. I charge solely on expected work time.

:bulletred: I use Paypal only, no points if you haven't seen the hints. Please, if you're underage, get your parents permission first and have them read my commission info, especially this section.

:bulletred: Payment is up front. Whereas you can get your money refunded, I can't get a refund on my time. So please, only ask me if you're committed.

:bulletred: I provide a free rough with my final estimates, but I will not provide future roughs for those that ask for a commission and then abandon it for another. I do not cater to window shoppers. Ask me for a commission only when you've decided on what you want, and when you're ready to pay. I do not delete my roughs, and will keep them on hand in case there is a problem.

:bulletred: Commission requests are through notes only, no comments. If you ask in a comment I will not respond other than to direct you here to my commission page. If you have my email that is a much quicker method of contacting me.

:bulletred: All commissions will be displayed in my commission folder when completed

:bulletred: My terms are non-negotiable. I try to be upfront with my restrictions and to inform you of what you're getting, if you do not agree with my terms them please look else where.

:bulletred: I swear to Vul you had better read this thing down to this line. I will not work with someone who chooses to ignore my terms and conditions. I act in a professional manner, I expect nearly the same from my patrons. There is a reason why its called important information.

:bulletred: Anything not covered will be during negotiations. Though I can't imagine what

I look forward to working with you!

Question, the CMC 10k series, does each of the new villains know of each others demise? like the mane 6 corruption and celestia's fall? It's been a while and I tend to forget, and it's quite confusing on trying to follow all the storylines.

What do you mean by new villains? Like Tirek and the guys that come out later after the story cut for CMC 10k?


It really boils down to when said characters make their appearence to what groups of characters. Like Shining and Crystalance and the chaos crew in the Lost right there. They're meeting each other for the first time.

Ah I meant the villians currently.
Ah, yes that page answered my question. Thank you.
And it does look like they don't recognize each other.
Also, I noticed that the mane 6 all seem to be "okay" with each other even in the forms they are in now, is that because they see each other as friends still in a sense? Like how Twilight seems to be okay with everything.

What goes on in the mind of a being who had their very essence shattered and reconstructed by a being beyond comprehension is anyone's guess.

Otherwise that kind of knowledge can only be expressed by the characters themselves.

(Late Reply) Well the guy who made it posted the full thing if you didn't know. It had S01EP01 in the label and is about 13 minutes long. I will admit, it was pretty damn funny and I loved the way the comedy was delivered.

Yah, it has spot on timing. It's pretty much a 70's style venture bros, but with Junior.

Hey Gates, did you see that 'Fox in Space' thing on YouTube? I ask because I found it hilarious, even though I'm not much of a Star Fox fan.
