Welcome to $5 Sketch Day!
Edit:  I'm reopening this week's Sketch Day for the time being.  You can still leave your prompts in the comments below.

Edit #2:  The three freebies have been filled.  All other sketches are $5 a piece.


Good morning, friends and SilverFlame Art supporters!  It's Monday, which means that I am opening for $5 sketch prompts from now until 5 p.m. CST.

The concept is simple:  Leave a prompt in the comments, a short description of something you'd like to see me sketch.  Use the payment button at the bottom of this entry to pay, and I'll post your sketch both in a reply to you in the comments and in a personal message, where I will link you to the full-sized file.

Also, the first three prompts are free! One free prompt per person, please.

A few things to bear in mind:

1)   To be legally safe, I'm going to ask that you not request any prompts based on copyrighted material.  So no fan art requests, please.
2)   Please refrain from requesting character designs on Sketch Day, as I have an event specifically for that every Wednesday.
3)   Since I'm running a family-friendly site here, I ask that you refrain from requesting anything with explicit sexual content, violence, gore, etc.
4)   Absolutely no requests for anything supporting bigotry, hate, or violence of any sort. I have a zero tolerance policy for this sort of thing.
5)   Please keep your prompt ideas relatively simple.  If you would like a more complex piece, you can request commission prices.
6)   Artwork takes time to complete, and more so when I am working on a lot of prompts, so please be patient!  I might be able to complete prompts by the end of the day, and it might take me as much as a week.  If I get swamped, it could take me longer, in which case I will postpone the next Sketch Day until everything is complete.
7)    If I reach 20 prompts before 5 p.m., I will be closing early.  This allows me to keep things at a manageable level for the week.  You can leave your prompt on the following Monday if you miss today's event.
8)   When you pay, please mention in your payment form what prompt the payment is for and what your name/username is so I can keep track of everything.
9) Payment is due before delivery of the sketch and is non-refundable (unless for some reason I'm unable to complete your sketch, in which case I will refund your money).

























hit counterEdit:  I've been told by a few people that they're having a hard time coming up with prompt ideas.  If you are, you might try a one-word prompt, such as "Faerie" or "Carousel" or, something more abstract like "Sorrow" or "Transcendence".

I've been trying to think of something all week and I finally just thought of a prompt - romantic/tenderness - it gets me nearly every time. I more easily connect with dark haired people. I love the smooth style of your 1st, 3rd, and 5th samples. (I'm not sure how to get it more descriptive without it switching over to my "characters".)

Thank you so much! <3

Haha! Brief edit of prompts and descriptions:

1) Free/freedom
2) Home
3) Longing/yearning

#2 and #3 - if you can feel for one of the people around me with regards to these two prompts, that'd be great, too.

How about female fairy bringing midwinter blessings?

Okay, adding you to the list! Shall have something ready for you tomorrow. Also, you're the third prompter, so your sketch is free. :D

Thank you!

I did tweet about your sketches.

Re: Thank you!

Thanks for the signal boost! I'm about to sit down to the sketches now, so hopefully I'll have yours out soon. :)

Your Sketch

Here you go! I'll be sending you a link to the full-sized image file in a PM.

I love it!

Oh, wow, it's gorgeous!

If you don't mind, I'd like to alter the image slightly, so it looks like it was done on colored paper (green, blue, or purple) and add Solstice wishes and share it later this month in my LJ, facebook, and Teitter. If that's all right with you, I'd also like to have you add a signature and, if you want, your webpage so it's properly credited and people who like it can find you.

Re: I love it!

Of course! Also, having been in need of a Yule/Solstice-themed piece of art to create for a holiday gift to my followers, I was planning on doing a finished painting based on this sketch, so I'll send that out to you as well when completed. :) And strange-- I could have sworn I signed it, but I see I didn't. I'll do that and add the page address and get it to you today.
