I make pixel animations which can be made into GIF loops, or imported into Flash for an interactive touch, or used for making video games.
WHAT DO I DO?
I'm open to a wide range of subjects and can work with a wide variety of characters, be they from cartoons, anime, or original concepts.
Really the only areas that I have an uneasiness of drawing/animating would involve subject matter that is politically charged or graphically violent. There are a few other areas I wouldn't touch with a 20 foot pole, but I won't go over them here. Just ask me over notes if you have any questions over what kind of content I'll accept.
This is an example of an Animated GIF. Fairly simple animated sprite or sprites that loops. I should be able to make an estimate for the cost/hours of a commission like this.
This is an Interactive Flash. Basically, any looping animations I make can be imported into Flash, then separated into scenes that can be controlled by buttons, hidden or otherwise. Again, I can make an estimate for these projects.
This is an example of an interactive mini-game I made, which involves the use of the mouse to interact with sprites. But I can make a variety of other games and program other interactive inputs, such as the keyboard. Games are a little more difficult to make estimates for and would have to be commissioned little by little, starting with the fabrication of visual assets, such as animated sprites and backgrounds before moving on to programming and audio.
If you're interested in this type of commission, my focus would be more on mini-games than full fledged games .
Currently I'm working nearly full time on my Flash commissions through my other account, so work here will be on a first come, first served basis to get a commission slot.

PRICESFor my hourly sessions, I will work for a rate of $12 an hour. This is an introductory rate that may change over time. If I'm working on a commission of yours during a price change, I will still finish your commission at the previously negotiated rate. Normally when I receive a script for a commission, I will try to estimate how many hours or sessions it will take to complete it.
I accept payments only through PayPal. An important note for commissioners paying me through PayPal, please make sure you're paying me through the "Goods and Services" option. Also, I may start using invoices as they are a more organized method of keeping track of payments. TIPPING
I'm only adding this because in this past year I've had commissioners who have tipped me or asked about this.
First, no, there is no obligation to tip me for my services (though I do fondly think of the folks who have ^^ )
A tip would be sending a little something extra after a project is finished. This would be a nice gesture for any of the following reasons:
1. In consideration of a project that took many, many, many sessions and weeks to complete.
2. To show gratitude for me making multiple edits during a project that reached the point of micro-management or perfectionism.
3. In response to a completed project that went beyond the commissioner's expectations.
If you decide to tip, there really is no formula to it. Just think of the gesture as a real life one ($3 means "Have a coffee on me", $10 means "Enjoy a night at the cinema on me", etc. )
PLACING AN ORDERSend me a note with information about your commission. A somewhat detailed script is helpful, as well as reference art/material for the character(s) involved. From there I can make an estimate for how many hours it would take to complete. I may ask up front for a payment that at least covers three hours of work toward your commission.
LIVESTREAMINGI likely won't be scheduling livestream sessions for these commissions, though I can record the work sessions offline
EASTER EGGS/ADDING TO EXISTING PROJECTSPeople who have commissioned me in the past have asked me about this. First, I can add as many or as little Easter Eggs (Hidden buttons/animations) to a commission as you like. And no, I don't just randomly add Easter Eggs to my commissions Keep in mind that I'm working by the hour and it does take time to add and animate bonus scenes.Also, commissioners can add to their commissioned works whenever they want. I try to save all my files for everything I've worked on. If you want to add something to an animation that you DIDN'T commission, you would first need to get the permission of the original commissioner and ask them to send me a note giving me their consent to have scenes added to their commission.
QUESTIONS?Send me a note and I'll send you a speedy-ish reply.
