From today, November 5th, to December 5th I will be pining for donations. However, each contributor would receive a gift for their donation. This is how it would work: You send your money by paypal and include in the description ONLY TWO WORDS--the name of the character you want drawn, and another descriptive word, such as "chibi," "happy," or even another character's name. Then, based on what two words you picked, I will gift you a random drawing of that character as thanks for your generous donation! So if you picked "Child Luffy," you might get a young Luffy happily eating mutton--or maybe you would get Luffy holding the hand of a child as they walk down a boardwalk together. It's all completely whimsical and depends on how I feel that day. (Sorry for being contrary!) You could also get a free print shipped to your house upon request. Your gift will be one-of-a-kind, and therefore not posted on DA without your prior consent. All will be black and white, and the ranges in quality and size of drawings are as follows:
2-5 Dollar donations will get you very small drawings: less than a whole 8 x 11 in. piece of printer paper, and with a translucent backdrop. They will come as chibi's unless otherwise specified.
6-15 Dollar donations will get you slightly bigger drawings. These would be 8 x 11 in. or maybe slightly larger. Usually these will have basic backdrops. You would be allowed two extra free print copies upon request.
15-25 Dollar donations--if you're truly feeling this generous--will get you drawings on par with the Bellamy samples you see below. All 11 x 17 in., which would be the same poster size. Would have their own backdrops, and not just one-color backdrops. These drawings each took about fifteen hours, so that's one dollar worth every hour I work. You could get five free print copies upon request. Could also be fully or partly-colored upon request.
15-25 Dollar Giftie Samples:
Contact me via note if you want to donate, and I'll give out my paypal.
I call these "Bellamy Donations" because I draw a lot of Bellamy, and every time I do, I have so much fun and put so much love into his drawings. I've spent so much time getting familiar with his design that he's become a symbol for everything I love about drawing--getting to know a character through your pen, and changing and shaping them to be just as beautiful as you see them. And since these donations go to supporting me in doing what I love, they fall perfectly under the Bellamy category.
BELLAMY DONATIONS are good-faith donations you make to me, an artist who is trying to save up for One Piece cosplay, One Piece figurines, One Piece books, and art tools for One Piece related projects. Since a lot of my money goes into giving back to not only One Piece but other fellow artists in the community, any donations made contribute at least in part to our hero Oda and to those in the community who need the support. (Some of it also goes to my own recreation, but again, most of that involves One Piece.)
