You Take Requests? For What Exactly?

Here's how it works...You give me five bucks, you tell me what to draw, and I draw it. I'll email you the image and then I'll post it here for everyone to see (I offer no guarantees on quality). Everyone wins!

Three things you can't request--Hardcore porn. The materials/media used. Your money back.

I will reject money for any logo requests (personal or corporate), so please don't send them. I have friends that are graphic designers, and that is their job--I'm just a cartoonist.

This is for fun and funds, so the quality of the drawing will depend based on my interest in the subject matter, the approach I decide to take, and available materials. Please don't cheat the system, by asking me to draw 100 different likenesses in one drawing for $5. I'll probably just send your money back. All requests will be posted on the site as I get to them (please keep in mind that I do have a full-time job). Due to shipping costs, I will only mail out the original art to folks who have made more than two requests. Please keep in mind that due to the size of the scanner, some of the pieces are folded or trimmed. I retain the full rights to any of the art I create, but if you want to use it for something, just ask me.

"A Vulcan pin up girl"

At first, my imagination was running wild, as both a red-blooded American male and as a colossal Star Trek nerd, but requester Elizabeth Novo sent photo references as well, and that changed the game plan slightly. Knowing it would be based on a real person (and a person I don't know) , I felt I had to get the likeness at least in the ballpark, and the photos were of a woman that was smiling. Smiling! So, this Vulcan pin-up girl ends up showing emotion because the girl in the photo is showing emotion (and I don't know what she looks like when she isn't smiling). Also, because it was a real person, I didn't get as revealing as the last pin-up girl request, though I have to say, she is still pretty foxy. Live long and prosper, Elizabeth!

EDIT: I just noticed that there were TWO Vulcan pin-up girls requested from Elizabeth! Sorry, Elizabeth, that I got confused by the orders. This is obviously the one based on the picture. The next one will be the original one where I get all Pon Farr on everybody.
