*I will accept commission artwork from the Pokemon, Nintendo, Sony and any gaming universe granted you provide me with a few references to work from. Cartoons from television shows are also a go (Shows from Cartoon Network, etc.)*

Okay so now how do I commission you?

When you contact me with a commission I will require you to obviously tell me your character you would like drawn up (if it's no one I've heard of I will require references), the type of artwork you want (which will be listed later on below) and depending if you are to purchase an artwork with specifics, I will need to know what specifics you want. I would prefer commission offers to be noted to me directly rather than on my page in my comments as I can refer back to my notes easier than if they were in my comments.

After I have this information I will begin to draw up a rough. Once I have a little mock up of the posed character all ready to do line work, I will send it to you for confirmation to make sure your pleased with the pose I have chosen.

If it is to your liking I will then require the payment of the commission to my Paypal and only to my Paypal. I will not accept any other payment. I will let the buyer know my email when they ask for a commissioned piece. Once I receive the payment I will then forward on to line work, color, etc. finishing up the piece. Once finished I will send you the digital file to do with as you please as it is yours and you just paid for it :P (*I will send digital files through Google Drive which allows me to send larger files through email*) BAM! You've now just commissioned me and have an artwork by yours truely! :)

Prices are shown below and if there are any questions on the process or just in general please don't hesitate to ask me and comment on my page so others who may have the same question will be able to see my answer.


Digital sketch cards - $15.00

Digital line work - $8.00

Also, if you decide to purchase line work and add color to it yourself or by someone else, please credit the line work to me as you may have paid for it but it was not done by you, thank you again!

WhyDesignStudios has started a donation pool!
125 / 1,188
*The pool is for 3 months premium membership :p*

Thank you to those who have already donated! I didn't realize I would reach 1188 points so I purchased one month already to get the Pokemon Poll up and going for you guys so I'm starting another donation poll. I don't expect a lot of donations because many of you have already been extremely generous so thank you all who donate regardless and all of you who did previously too! :)

Any donation counts and is appreciated 1000% So a HUGE thank you in advance for those who do decide to help me out a little :D :heart:

Hey everyone!

Well after drawing the Pokemon you've been asking for through the voting poll, and recently becoming friends with Smiley-Fakemon, I've been thinking about maybe creating some of my own Fakemon! Everyone I know has told me I should create some of my own characters instead of just drawing characters that are not my own so I think viewing Smiley's gallery of Fakemon inspired me to do so :P Now don't think I'm stopping the Pokemon Polls or the Kanto Pokedex, I'm definitely not lol. It needs to be finished, but I will be trying to create my own Fakemon and I will submit them between Pokemon Poll winners here and there as I create them. With that being said, I hope you guys and girls are just as excited to see what I can come up with!

Also, check out Smiley-Fakemon's page because he's got some awesome stuff and he inspired me to do some Fakemon :P

Please let me know what you think about this idea and maybe what you'd like to see! :)
Thanks everybody!
