Hello everyone! For those of you who have all looked at my commission request yesterday , I have updated the cash commission request mentioned in the link below because I made the following changes to my commission:

1.I would like the cute, kid-friendly cartoony art style to be non-anime as anime and chibi-style does not fit the style of my game.
2.I would also like a detailed background for my commission instead of a transparent background because my kids game is set in my characters' elementary classroom on a bright, sunny morning.

My updates MAY change the type of artists that are still interested, so any of you that have been looking at my commission and are still interested, you are still on my candidacy list for this project. However, I am still taking new responses to this offering, so please do not be bashful.

Here is a link to the Journal entry for my updated commission:

Petite and Friends Commission (for ~Textris92)Introduction
Hello and long time no see! I would like to commission you to digitally draw and color three of my cute original
characters all in a cute, kid-friendly cartoony art style complete with full SOFT shading, tones, textures, highlights,
and other digital effects.
I am not only planning to use the artwork for my own personal use, but I also plan on incorporating the artwork into a
free and open source kids game that I am preparing to make called Petite and Friends.
This commission features the main character of my kids game, Tricksie (Petite is her nickname) sitting with her legs
crossed and reading a book with her pet cat and dog (who are anthropomorphic grade-school-aged animal children) sitting on
both of her shoulders and scratching, massaging, tickling, and rubbing both her shoulders and the back of her neck while
she is reading. They are all in an elementary school classroom sitting in front of the window on an extremely bright and
sunny morning. Everyt
Just wanted to see what everyone thinks of my deviantART icon.
Hello everyone! I am currently preparing to make a free and open source kids game called Petite and Friends and I am looking for someone to commission for cash ($200 to spend for entire commission, NOT per character) who can digitally draw and color three of my cute original characters in a cute, kid-friendly cartoony art style complete with full soft shading, tones, textures, highlights, and other digital effects.

Although I will not be paying for this commission until this Friday, I am making the posting right now so that way time can be made for everyone to express their interest in doing these characters for me. This will also make time for me to carefully look at other people's galleries and choose the best one for my project. It will also give whomever I pick time to look over my descriptions out of respect for their busy schedules.

Because this is a very complex commission, I have moved everything you all need to know regarding my commission to my Journal. That way nobody has to read a huge wall of text.

Here is the link to the deviantART Journal entry containing my description:

Hello and long time no see! I would like to commission you to digitally draw and color three of my cute original
characters all in a cute, kid-friendly cartoony art style complete with full SOFT shading, tones, textures, highlights,
and other digital effects.

I am not only planning to use the artwork for my own personal use, but I also plan on incorporating the artwork into a
free and open source kids game that I am preparing to make called Petite and Friends.

This commission features the main character of my kids game, Tricksie (Petite is her nickname) sitting with her legs
crossed and reading a book with her pet cat and dog (who are anthropomorphic grade-school-aged animal children) sitting on
both of her shoulders and scratching, massaging, tickling, and rubbing both her shoulders and the back of her neck while
she is reading. They are all in an elementary school classroom sitting in front of the window on an extremely bright and
sunny morning. Everything should be described below.

I will be paying for this commission on Friday, October 31st, 2014 via Paypal if you approve of this commission.

Character Descriptions

Here is the description of my kids game's main character that will have her pet anthro animal children on her
shoulders:


Tricksie (nickname is Petite) Cuteus-Wootus is a cute little round-headed girl with autism who attends third grade. Her
round head is similar to character three on the reference sheet here at
fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/f/201… and her round head is
all shiny and glossy like porcelain. She also has extremely shiny blonde hair and is in a cute style similar to the girl
shown here at images.fineartamerica.com/imag… .

She wears a dark red elevator operator's uniform similar to the one shown on the man here at
c2.staticflickr.com/4/3273/270… and is buttoned up all the way to her neck with the neckpiece
fastened with a white dress shirt, dark pink tie, tan waistcoat, dark red sweater, and black suitcoat all hidden
underneath her elevator operator's uniform.

Over all of her clothing she wears three extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy coats similar to the
one shown here at www.backcountry.com/images/ite… . Her first puffy coat is dark red,
second puffy coat dark blue, and third puffy coat black. She also wears extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-
style black puffy snowpants and shiny black boots.

On her head she wears an extremely shiny dark red elevator operator's hat similar to the one shown on the man here at
c2.staticflickr.com/4/3273/270… with extremely shiny gold and white stripes on it. Over her
hat she wears her extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy black hood from her third puffy coat. She also
wears extremely bulky, thick, and shiny black mittens and has pretty hazel-colored eyes. Tricksie also should be wearing
her hot pink school bag on her back for this commission.

And now for the descriptions of the animal characters that will be sitting on Tricksie's shoulders:

Josie is a cute little round-headed brown poodle puppy who attends kindergarten. Her round head is similar to Clifford of
Clifford's Puppy Days as shown here at images4.fanpop.com/image/photo…
days-17202956-466-579.jpg but she is not a red dog, she is a fluffy brown poodle puppy as shown here at
4.bp.blogspot.com/-eKNa39y2evI… .

She wears a dark red marching band uniform similar to the one shown on Pop of Rice Krispies here at
changeoffaces.files.wordpress.… and is buttoned up all the way to her neck with the
neckpiece fastened with a white turtleneck hidden underneath her marching band uniform.

Over all of her clothing she wears three extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy coats similar to the
one shown here at www.backcountry.com/images/ite… . Her first puffy coat is hot pink,
second puffy coat dark blue, and third puffy coat dark green with the shoulder area black. She also wears extremely bulky,
thick, and shiny marshmallow-style dark green puffy snowpants and shiny dark green boots.

On her head she wears her extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy dark green hood from her third puffy
coat with an extremely shiny golden marching band hat complete with an extremely shiny black vizor on top of her hat. She
also has pretty light green eyes and wears extremely bulky, thick, and shiny dark green mittens on her hands.

Opie is a cute little round-headed cat who attends kindergarten. His round head is similar to Clifford of Clifford's Puppy
Days as shown here at images4.fanpop.com/image/photo…
579.jpg but he is not a red dog, he is a fluffy black kitten. He wears an extremely shiny black suitcoat with a white
dress shirt, black tie, tan waistcoat, dark red sweater, and black turtleneck all hidden underneath.

Over all of his clothing he wears three extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy coats similar to the one
shown here at www.backcountry.com/images/ite… . His first puffy coat is black, second
puffy coat dark blue, and third puffy coat red. He also wears extremely bulky, thick, and shiny red puffy snowpants and
shiny red boots.

On his head he wears his extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style red puffy hood from his third puffy coat with
an extremely shiny black top hat complete with an extremely shiny dark blue hatband and an extremely shiny black vizor on
top of his hood. He also has handsome light green eyes and wears extremely thick, bulky, and shiny red mittens on his
hands.

Poses and Other Important Details

For poses, here is how I want it to work out. I would like for my two animal characters to be sitting on Tricksie's
broadened shoulders. My animal characters should both have one of their hands behind Tricksie's neck scratching,
massaging, rubbing, and tickling behind there and the other hand scratching, massaging, tickling, and rubbing her shoulder
while smiling their cute smiles with their mouths open. As for Tricksie, she should be sitting with her legs crossed and
reading a book while smiling her cute smile with her mouth open. And lastly, Tricksie (Petite) is sitting on the floor and
is not sitting on a desk.

I would like all of my characters to have cute smiles with lip lines at both ends like most cartoon characters have
without ANY rosy cheeks except for Tricksie (Petite) who should have extremely dark red SOFT SHADED rosy cheeks. I
would also like everything shaded, lighted, and toned as if it were an extremely bright and sunny morning and the sun is
shining right on all of my characters. Therefore, when you do all of their hats, hatbands, and vizors, I would like all of
them to look like as if they were made out of extremely shiny plastic or metal and that the sun is shining directly on all
of their hats, hatbands, and vizors.

Also, about their clothing, all of my characters should be wearing their extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-
style puffy coats buttoned up all the way to their necks with all of the neckpieces fastened. Therefore, only their third
puffy coats should be showing and should be completely covering up everything and anything else they wear underneath.

All of my characters have extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy padding in the insides of their puffy
coats, snowpants, and hoods in addition to on the outside, so I would like all of their puffy coats, snowpants, and hoods
to be extremely bulky, thick, marshmallowy, and shiny. Also, because all of my characters wear uniforms underneath all of
their puffy coats, I would like all of their shoulders to be broadened more.

File Format, Background, and Layering

For this commission's background, I would like for my characters to be in an elementary school classroom on a bright and
sunny morning. Whatever you want the classroom to look like, any chalkboards or alphabet above the chalkboards, any
posters or signs, etc. is entirely up to you, the artist, to decide. Therefore, I am not going to explain the classroom in
great detail. However, all of my characters should be in front of the classroom's windows as the sun is their lighting
source. I would like the sun to be shining in through the windows in the classroom as anything Petite and Friends is set
in this classroom on a bright sunny morning.

I know this may make the commission take more time than usual, but that is fine as I have absolutely NO deadlines as this
is a hobby project, not a professional money-making endeavor.

I would like the final work sent in PSD format to my e-mail address at ckidsters431651@gmail.com . Each of my characters
should be on their own separate layer in the PSD file and the background should be all on one separate layer too. There
are absolutely NO size limitations, so full size would be great.

I hope you can do this all for me.
Hello everyone! I am currently looking for someone to commission for cash ($25 to spend for entire commission - it's just
one character) who can digitally draw and color one of my cute original characters in the cute Sonic the Hedgehog style
complete with full SOFT shading, tones, textures, highlights, and other digital effects.

Here is the description of my character:

Niblu Pilgrinu is a cute little Sonic the Hedgehog-style gray hedgehog boy who attends kindergarten. He wears a dark red
elevator operator's uniform similar to what the man is wearing here at
c2.staticflickr.com/4/3273/270… buttoned up all the way to his neck with the neckpiece
fastened with a white dress shirt, black tie, red waistcoat, red sweater, and a black suitcoat all hidden underneath his
elevator operator's uniform.

Over all of his clothing he wears three extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy coats similar to the one
shown here at media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236… . His first puffy coat
is dark red, second puffy coat dark blue, and third puffy coat black with a white shoulder area. In addition, he wears
extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style black puffy snowpants with long underwear and extremely thick pants
hidden underneath and extremely shiny black boots.

On his head he wears an extremely shiny dark red and gold elevator operator's hat similar to what the man is wearing here
at c2.staticflickr.com/4/3273/270… with his extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-
style black puffy hood from his third puffy coat over the top of his elevator operator's hat. He also wears extremely
bulky, thick, and shiny black mittens on his hands and has handsome light blue eyes.

I would like for my character to be standing with his arms down and smiling his cute smile with his mouth closed. I would
like my character to have a cute smile with lip lines at both ends like most cartoon characters have without ANY rosy
cheeks. I would also like everything shaded, lighted, and toned as if it were an extremely bright and sunny afternoon and
the sun is shining directly on Niblu Pilgrinu. Therefore, when you do his hat, I would like it to look like as if it was
made out of extremely shiny plastic or metal and the sun is shining directly on his hat.

Also, about his clothing, he wears all of his extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy coats buttoned up
all the way to his neck with all of the neckpieces fastened. Therefore, only his third puffy coat should be showing and
should be completely covering up everything else he wears underneath. Because all of his puffy coats, snowpants, and hood
all have extremely bulky, thick, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy padding in the inside as well, I would like all of his
puffy coats, snowpants, and hood to be extremely bulky, thick, marshmallowy and shiny. Since he also has a uniform with
other clothing hidden underneath all of his puffy coats, I would like for his shoulders to be broadened more.

I would like the final work delivered to me to my e-mail address in transparent PSD format to my e-mail.

If anyone is interested in doing this all for me, please do not hesitate to note me or message me.

Hello! This is Nathan Koepke and I am getting ready for a programming project. I am making this kids game and I would like for this program to have some cute characters I have made up in my mind which I have written vivid descriptions of. Therefore, I need some character artwork depicting these characters done for me in an art style similar to the box art or any type of art of most children's software products and DVDs such as JumpStart, Clifford, etc. with the shading and highlights and all. I have realized that since this type of art style is very laborious, having someone do art for me in this style would require some sort of compensation.

The points level is set at 9,000 to allow for me to compensate people enough points for the time and effort necessary to do my characters in the style that I expect for the project. Therefore, if anyone can donate me whatever points they can toward this project, that would be greatly appreciated.

You are very much welcome. I really enjoy all of the digital work you did for me especially the one with Emily Elizabeth and Ramona Quimby scratching my back. What do you think made me so cute in that picture?

Thank you, it was an honor to do it! :D The drawings you commission from me give me plenty of practice as well with drawing new types of hats and positions!

I cannot be too sure, perhaps the childhood innocence in it?

You are welcome. And that is good, I am glad my commissions gave you some experience in doing many types of cartooning.

And yes, the childhood innocence I had when I was young was conveyed in all pictures that you did for me that contain me when I was a little kid. :)

I hope you are having a wonderful day and may God bless you!
