I wrote and am still writing several fanfics as love letters to the cartoons and media I love: I wrote for Sonic and Sly Cooper, I'm currently writing a sonic and Teen Titans fanfic, and planned fanfics for Crash Bandicoot, Transformers, Ninja turtles, My little pony friendship is magic and Spiderman...but there are several cartoons I love a lot, but I haven't talked about much yet I love them a lot, and while I want to pay tribute to them can't find myself to able to think of a fic to show that love. I'll talk about several ones...
THE POWERPUFF GIRLS
I love superhero cartoons, and I don't always need Marvel and DC to give me a healthy dose of it. Probably my favorite non-DC or Marvel cartoon on Cartoon Network was the Powerpuff girls. I mean, they're unconventional superheroes, being kindergarten girls but they were adorable, charming, it had excellent humor, memorable characters and it was my introduction to my favorite voice actor, Tara Strong. I really want to do something with them. Yet they are so untapped and cancelled way too soon, yet I find myself unable to think of something to pay tribute to the three most adorable superheroes ever. It's like having sugar, spice and everything nice, but no Element X to complete it...
My favorite Nicktoon for sure. I mean, it features a superhero of sorts, it has a creative concept with the half-ghost and the physics of the ghost world, and it was full of moments that made me chuckle, but it had it's fair share of dark mometns as well. Two Words: Dark Danny! I haven't drawn anything related to him in a while and while there were loose ends at the finale, I can't think of a cool way to resolve them, so it has escaped my fanfic clutches for long, as if it were as intangible as Danny himself.
AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER
Everyone praises this cartoon. For good reason. It's one of those rare cartoons, one of those were it's so close to being perfect that anything I would try to label as a flaw would feel like nitpicking. No other show has done that to me. Every character, every joke, every story intregued me. Not a single episode I really disliked. There were some very small loose ends at the finale, but now they are making epilogue comics which are up to par with the source material, there is nothing I can do to make a continuation, and nothing I would do in terms of reboots would pay respect to it. If you haven't seen this show, what rock have you been living under, Earthbend your way out of it and go watch it! It's wonderful! Just stay away from Shamelan's live action movie, it kind of sucks...
And I still can't believe that Nickelodeon used to air this cartoon while those f***ers send out crap like Breadwinners, Modern Spongebob and Fanboy and Chumchum. Seriously, what happened to you Nickelodeon?
No I haven't watched the Legend of Korra nor I will. I don't care. It may be good maybe not, but I can't bring myself to care for it. Sorry, but that's my decision and that's final.
POWER RANGERS AND KAMEN RIDER
Both come from Japanese source material, both have the perfect blend of camp and awesomeness and both reinvented the superhero genre. Also giant robots vs giant Kaiju and cool flashy finishing moves make it complete. But how can one try to deliberatly catch the cheesiness of Power Rangers or the Japanese humor of Kamen Rider? I tried to figure it out, but while I understand the humor, I can't grasp it. Why?
Maybe you could say I should stop trying to think so hard about it. But it's just each of these shows are so very important to me. So that's why I take my fanfics so seriously, and that I feel that if a concept isn't up to par, I'm cancelling it. I put high standards for myself because I feel I need to show what these shows mean, and I feel like I need to show that there are people to understand what they are about...And besides, it only means that you'll probably still see a lot of me in the future on this site.
Just some random crap to get off my chest
I got 150 points already, but that's far from enough to get my premium membership, so I pretty please ask you anyone who reads this, to help me out. Ask for comissions, pretty please!
Reminders of the rules:
1) People can ask for multiple commissions as long as they can pay, but I advice you to not go above and beyond so others can still have a chance at comissions.
2) Whether they are willing to pay in advance or after the pic is completed is completely up to you. But I'm a man of my word and expect you to do them same, if you decide on a commission but can't pay afterwards, either I'll have to remove it after a certain amoutn of time, or you have to give me something else in return. Just business after all
3) I have freakin's standards. I don't mind drawing or writing some...kinks but expect me to write or draw things that are in a real bad taste (like porn, inflation, racism ect) and I can refuse the comission if the subject is questionable.
4) I don't take my personal opinion into account so I'm willing to draw pairings I am not fan of myself as parts of the commissions.
With that said, let's show you the price list.
Character drawing (single): 25 points
Two to four characters on a single drawing: 50
More then four characters on a single drawing: 75
Cover art (for a fanfic or project): 50 points
Comic: 50 points per page
One-shot or mini-fic: 30 points per chapter
I'll update the list if I'm forgetting something, and be sure to think about what you want me to draw.
