Commission Guide 2017 by Lightning-Bliss Commission Guide 2017 by Lightning-Bliss
Process to buying a commission from me.

Step 1 - Contact me on DA Notes (I will not accept comments or posts on my artwork or statuses for a commission request.)

Step 2 - If you know what you want (If not please look at my commission guide) Please list in detail of what you want to commission me for. Visual references and links to show me what you want MUST BE PROVIDED! I do not like playing guessing games! (The reference must be clear and to the point and showing what your OC or your character looks like!) Describe in detail if you want line work done, fully colored and shaded, or vector style! The more details you provide, the better your request will be!

Step 3 - Once I've smoothed out what you want, I will give you my approval for the work and give you the total of how much it will cost.

Step 4 - You must pay in full to my Paypal information that I will provide for you after I've summed up your total.

Step 5- I begin the process of making your piece. This can take from 24hrs to a week depending on my list of commissions I have.

Step 6 - The commission will be posted on my DA linked to you, or uploaded elsewhere upon request.

Commission Struggles and Common Questions - Commission Request Struggling?So i've been noticing some...complications with folks who attempt to hire me for a commission. Some simply don't know what they want, except that they want to commission me, or know what they want but don't know how to give the proper details.
FEAR NOT WOULD BE FUTURE CLIENTS OF LIGHTNING BLISS! I am answering your call to help you all better understand how to commission me properly so we can avoid these kind of silly confusions!
Let's start off with the common client questions:

Client: Do you take points?

Blissy: I do not sadly! Points aren't enough to pay the bills for me, this is my job!
Client: Do you trade?
Blissy: NOPE! However, under circumstances if I need anything from you, and you can't accept payment, then I will happily trade as compensation.
Client: Do I have to pay up front?
Blissy: Yes you do. The reason why is because this secures your spot for a commission slot, and it leaves little room for error on your par


If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer!

No... $50 is a base price for a "Pony Puppet" please read the Commission Guide and the description cafefully. There is even a journal link in the description that answers very common client questions I get. Thank you.

If you know the word kawaii I was thinking of a commission where my oc tries saying that but it fails once bliss knows its meaning.  I make sure its ok before noting a commission request.

It means cute in Japanese artista says that and eventually bliss learns what it means. Fully colored no background.  The reason I show two references is because her design is the same except for the mechanical wing and leg on the right side of body.

I do make flash puppets in several different perspectives, the one I tend to commission the most is the Three Quarter view.

I don't have the capcity for that kind of puppet. I'd recommend GoldenFox or Minty Root for such a commission.

Hey Blissy, the pony puppets would they be able to transferable into photoshop? That where my current ones are and use for my own personal review videos and such. I been looking to have an update to my own pony puppets. So when I noticed your commissions are opened I thought I come to ya and ask about it.

I been looking to add some new puppets to the list I currently got.

I might not be able to do the video with vectors I seen many of ya done but having more puppets to work with what I done at the moment be handy and for the up coming next year. That will be a big year for me being the tenth birthday of the very name of Electuroo itself before MLP.

I will show ya the first Electuroo! Took me about half a year before I posted it up after creating it back in 2008. ^^

Ah, so it's not an interchangeable vector image where you can edit placements?

It's a rigged puppet made of symbols with several frames in some like for the face, eyelids or brows or legs etc, that can be adjusted through the timeline.

If you go to the Artiest Profile, up at the right hand side there's a button called "Notes" click that, to send a personal message to the artiest.

And I suppose I am capable, though it's never been requested before. It would be a new challenge that might cost a little bit more then usual.

Awesome! So I was thinking of maybe doing a background where my screen name, "GJ301", is displayed in peach letters with an orange background, which has thin, transparent brown lines. The G in my name could be wearing a fedora slanted. My OC could be on the side presenting the name. My OC is in the link down below. I hope this would be manageable for you.

I have a couple questions about the custom pony flash puppets if you don't mind. The questions being, would I be able to use them in the current version of adobe animate, and would I be able to use them for actual animations?
