HOW IT WORKS:


Send me a DA Note or email me at kisa.whipkey@gmail.com, detailing your request as much as possible. If I feel comfortable with accepting your commission, I will respond with a Service Agreement. I always work under contract, so please don't ask for anything else.

The contract details not only how much my rate is, plus the payment terms (I generally require a non-refundable down payment up front) but also which rights I'm entitled to keep and which I am relinquishing. (There are additional fees for things like Expedited Delivery Times, Special Delivery Instructions and Exclusive Rights, which will be negotiated during the initial discussion phase.)

I base all of my commission pricing on the time it takes me to complete an image. Essentially you will be paying me $10/per hr for any of the above categories. But beyond that, there are no limitations to what the image contains--ie how many characters, how big it is, etc. Any limitations of those kinds are listed in the pricing structure. Everything else is flexible.

Once the contract has been signed by both parties, I will begin working. I will create several sketchs for you to choose from (which is what the non-refundable down payment is paying for). Once a final sketch has been chosen, I will proceed with the final image, which will then be delivered per the terms agreed on. More details on this exact process are contained within the Service Agreement, but feel free to ask for more information via Note or Email.

One final note: Unless Exclusive Rights are purchased, I always reserve the right to publicly display and/or merchandise commissioned images. Copyright stays with me, and unless specifically determined beforehand, commissions are for PERSONAL USE ONLY (Logo/Graphic Design Commissions are the only exception).

Thank you for your interest in my work.

Biography



~

Originally from Northern California, I now live in the beautiful, albeit cold and soggy, Pacific Northwest. My passion for art started at a ripe young age like everyone else's, but was immediately combined with a near equal appetite for books. It wasn't until I was 11, and finally old enough to understand that animated movies weren't real but were instead a plausible career option combining both of my loves, that I knew I couldn't do anything else.

Prior to college, I was largely self-taught, devouring books on animation and experimenting on wintery nights with a light table my dad assembled for me in the garage. Formal training began when I was 16, and I tried everything from Animation and Writing, to Painting and Digital Art/Graphic Design, ultimately finding my niche in Storyboard Art. I graduated in 2008 with a degree in Game Art and Design, specializing in what I found to be the perfect blend of my two passions--Visual Storytelling.

Most artists classify themselves by their favored medium; I consider myself a storyteller. My goal in art has always been to give people that same feeling I used to have leaving a theatre after the latest Disney film--goosebumps of joy at something magical, an escape from everyday life, and a momentary pause to savor good entertainment.

I founded Nightwolf A.D.E. (Art, Design & Editing) in 2011, and am currently the Lead Artist for this freelance based company. We offer a range of services, from freelance Writing & Editing, to Graphic Design, Illustration, and of course, Animation. Currently my Animation abilities are restricted to the traditional style, but I am hoping to expand into 3D soon. I am open for commissions, (prices listed below), so if you see something in my galleries you find interesting, please contact me. I can be reached at kisa.whipkey@gmail.com.

Please note: I DO NOT DO TRADES OR REQUESTS AT THIS TIME

Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you've enjoyed your stay!

Introducing Nightwolf's Corner

Journal Entry: Fri May 4, 2012, 2:40 PM


It's been awhile since I've updated my journal--nearly a year to be exact, eek!--so I thought it was high time I announced something new.

First, I'd like to thank those of you who are patiently waiting for me to update my gallery. I promise, it really is going to happen soon. It's been a long process of refining images, learning how to present them properly and setting up various websites that I lovingly like to call my Online Empire. **Evil Laugh** But in all seriousness, I'm super close to finally being able to regularly release new images, writing and other awesomeness. So please be patient just a little longer. Your support really means a lot to me. :)

Now, on to the main point of this update: the announcement of my new blog, Nightwolf's Corner. After several weeks of an intensive crash course in Wordpress, and all the code wrangling that entails, I'm happy to say that my blog is finally live. Complete with the first post. It will be a look into my particular type of storytelling, offering tidbits of wisdom learned from my experiences as a writer, artist and martial artist, along with commiserating rants over the frustrations we all face in the creative industries, and probably some snarky tirades on whatever irritates me that week. In reference to the three main topics, of course.

The site will also be the second best place to find out more information about me. It will include a lot of what can be found here--an art gallery of my work, excerpts of my writing, etc. But it will be more regularly updated and allow those interested in really getting to know me a better chance at interaction.

I've never ventured into the blog world, so this is a new experiment for me as well. And as usual, the site is still under construction. The main aspects are live, and will be updated every Friday--life allowing--but there are still a few more pages that need work. I hope some of you will come check it out, and maybe even continue to follow me there as well.

Thanks for reading!

I'm replying to your post [link] here because a mod locked my thread.

Currently, we don't have a critique forum, we have a critique thread.

The difference between a forum and a thread is that a forum is the place where you post threads. For example, the Literature Forum, or the Complaints Forum, or the Help With life Forum. The threads are the links you click on in the forum--the topics of conversations.

What we have right now is one thread for everyone to post in.

What I am asking for is that we have a literature workshop forum, so that way we can be more organized and different people can start their own different threads, instead of being forced in to everyone using the same shitty one we have now.
