Hope to see you there!
Packing hell for #c2e2 - I hate this part.
If you ever wanted to see one of my thumbnailed pages…. Yeah. Always crazy and minimal in line making. The idea is to get an idea of the flow of the comic page and form a plan of action for final lines. #makecomics
Convention sign complete! Mind you these are prices for con sketches only. #c2e2 #commission #goodgod
Working on a new commission sign for #c2e2 - hand written has it’s charms, right? ^^;
Done! Kitty Pryde & Lockheed. #xmen #drawing #sketch #c2e2 #illustration #pencil #commission
Hoping to get this done tonight. Kitty & Lockheed. #drawing #sketch #xmen #wip #c2e2 #commission #pencil
My Lockheed is looking a little sinister… O_o; #commission #drawing #sketch #art #xmen #comics #wip
King of the night.

Next con up for the season is C2E2 2014! - (April 25-27, 2014 - South Building, McCormick Place- Chicago).
Me and Andrew E.C. Gaska will be there in artist alley J-14! We will have books, prints, and I will be taking commissions! Also! Good news! A small batch of The God Machine’s regular edition was found. There ar enot many of them so come get your out-of-print* copy ASAP! It won’t last and I don’t think there are any more that we could possibly find! (And if I do, I’m keeping them for my own purposes. Like a record of my accomplishment) And if you don’t want that regular edition or already have one, the leather bound edition is still around. :D
Hope to see you all at C2E2!!
*Yes! The God Machine Vol. 1 is out of print. Archaia doesn’t have it, Diamond Distribution doesn’t have it, Amazon formally doesn’t have it, etc. You can still find it at some comic shops and bookstores, just might take you a bit to find it. Pretty much it’s where-ever is in the wild. It will NEVER be printed that way again. So, if you want to read that Doc Hammer forward, or to see those pim-ups…get it if you find it! Seriously.
Come see me (Chandra Free) and @drewgaska (Andrew E. C. Gaska) at @c2e2 in artist alley table #J-14! We’ll have books, prints, and commissions! #c2e2 #comics #conventions
Hey again everybody!
I’m taking special discounted $60 dollar commissions (and $30 dollar commissions too, see details below) AGAIN to help raise some extra cash due to even more unforeseeable circumstances that has left us in a bind for cash. :( As much as I’d love to work on my comic work right now, I just can’t when it doesn’t pay the bills. A sacrifice must be made, and that is God Machine (momentarily.)
But! Stiff upper lip and other positive sentiments, it’s time to remain positive and take your commissions!
So here’s the deal! (Almost the same as last time, but with some revisions.)
The $60 Commission Package
What do you get for $60 dollars? One digital fully colored bust*/and or headshot and a splash color background. [*NOTE: A bust in this instance is a head to slightly below the shoulders. NO FULL BODY images, please. Though if you’d like that we can discuss extra cost.] What you get is a full resolution image (.jpeg or .tif, whichever you need- please let me know! Default is jpeg). This is for you to make your own prints for your personal collection (again more details on this below).
Here are some examples of what I did for some of my previous 60 dollar specials:
What you can request:
Pick 1 of the following!-
- Your favorite character from whatever series [reference is nice! But i also can look up things too. ;D]
- Your character [I NEED your reference.]
- A portrait of you, your friend, family, etc. [photos please] No animals please! [However- this option is going to cost a bit more since doing these types of commissions during my last round of took more time than anticipated. Please add an extra $15 to your price if you’re choosing this option.]Tell me *basics* you want to see in the character image and any other basic information.
The $30 Commission Package
Same as above, but a digital sketch. No color, but does include monochrome shading. You get a full resolution file to make prints. Same options for content. (Extra $5 for portrait of you/family etc.)
Please pay upfront as soon as possible. The sooner I get the money, the sooner I can put you on the list and get to your image.
You will be put on a list pending on how many people commission me on this special deal. Pending where you are on the list, you will either get the image in a few days or between 1 to 2 weeks after payment (due to high demand!).
What you will receive 2 jpegs of your image- one at 100% [full resolution as mentioned before- which can be a tif file if you want it that way] and the other at about roughly %25 the size of the original (jpeg for easy of use!). Original images are done at 300 dpi [aka standard high resolution] and measure out to be 8.5” x 11”. You have permission to make prints for yourself. [*See legal information at the bottom of the post for more details]
I only take PAYPAL. Sorry, but it does makes it easier. :)
Email me at ChandraFree@gmail.com with your description of what you want and we will go from there.
****PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME MONEY UNTIL I ACCEPT YOUR COMMISSION. I WILL TELL YOU MY PAYPAL INFO AFTER I HAVE ACCEPTED. ****
Thank you for your interest and thank you for helping me out!
*note- If you want a regular commission from me, I will accept them now. They are a bit more expensive (and take longer to do), but you have more options (full body, pose, designing a character for you, etc.) Please inquire if this is more interesting/geared towards the project you want from me.Quick Legal Information (AKA what you can do with this image and what I can do with it):
- The copyright of the commissioned work is retained by the artist. I can reuse the image for my portfolios, sell them, and post online.
- These images are for your own personal use (non-commercial unless otherwise agreed upon), and not to be copied, reproduced or redistributed. This means you can use them as your avatars, print your own personal prints but you cannot sell them or put them on products, etc.
- Sorry, but no cancellations accepted once work on the picture has begun. Make sure you want/need your image from me!
For the day crowd. <3
