I'll be aiming to keep these first come, first serve. Let's see how that works out. (I have no idea on the demand for these, this is a test run and I'll learn from mistakes while I'm here.)To claim a slot:
Comment on this journal! Once your claim is made, I will note you, at which point you'll send me your custom concepts. If you don't have any ideas yet for your custom design, don't worry! (Though to expedite things, I'd prefer design concepts be shared within a week of claiming a slot, so I can move on with the queue.) Once your concept has been approved, I will quote you the price and ask that a down payment of $50 minimum be made to secure your slot.
Remaining payments must be made after approval of concept and color sketches I submit to you, and before I start the final art. Payments will be made via Paypal Invoices. See "Custom Pricing Details" below for pricing.
Before you place your order, know that these Aequis customs take months to produce. Average turn around time is 1-3 months, depending on position in queue. If you do not feel comfortable waiting this long, please do not order!
I will submit designs to you for feedback at three stages: initial concept, color concept, and sheet layout. Buyer will receive original artwork, as well as a scanned file of the art.Aequis type guide (masterpost) here!Custom Design Status:
Open for 4 slots!Custom Pricing Details:
As of July 2016, all Aequis designs start at $100 USD. This base price includes all Aequis non-hybrid types (ie. grasslander, islander, mountain, etc.) with on-type coloration, etc.
For hybrid types: Three pricing tiers.
Common hybrids: Perching x perching, ground x ground, habitats overlapping: +$10 (ex: Mountain x Arctic, temperate islander x southern islander, Grasslander x desert)
Uncommon hybrids: Perching x ground, as long as habitats overlap. Potential deliberate breeding: +$20 (ex: temperate arboreal x Mountain, tropical terrestrial x tropical arboreal)
Rare/Semi-domestic hybrids: perching x ground, habitats incompatible. +$30 (ex: tropical arboreal x desert, wetlands x mountain, etc.)
Examples of Aequis hybrid tiers can be found here: pallanophblargh.tumblr.com/pos…
Eventually I should have a chart for these!
Uncommon traits for all types: Albinism, hypermelanism, piebaldism/leucism, asymmetrical markings. +$5-15 depending on rarity.
After these four slots are filled, base prices for customs will be raised to $120 USD to better compensate me for hours spent on them.
Working on comprehensive type guide/accepted color/pattern guidelines when time allows. In the meantime, feel free to note/email me your questions and suggestions! Email is firstname.lastname@example.org. All payments to be made via PayPal Invoice. No points, trades, etc. will be accepted unless I offer.
That said, if there are any suggestions you have for Aequis, feel free to voice it in the comments!
