Icon Day 22  


Thank you for participating in Icon Day 22! All of the requests posted before the cutoff will be drawn, and everyone who tipped will get two icons plus a bonus dinosaur icon. Keep an eye on my journal for progress updates and ustream sessions!

The batch of icons from Icon Day 21 are finished and posted - http://djinni.livejournal.com/402875.html - 434 icons plus nine of the 3.5"x5.5" pictures. The 3.5"x5.5" pictures will be mailed out, soon. And, now that this is done, it's time for Icon Day 22!

You are invited to leave a request for an icon! There are a few rules for the requests, and I would appreciate it if you gave those a read before leaving your request comment. Then, feel free to leave your request! A lj account is not required. You can leave an anonymous comment, or use your facebook or g+ account. If you leave an anonymous comment and it doesn't show up, I can still see it.

You can leave a request for a free icon, or you can leave a tip. I'm a self-employed artist, and I certainly appreciate tips, but they are not required. Can't afford to tip? Feel like getting something for free? You are welcome to ask for a gift! :)

- Please link back to this post if you request an icon. Help me get the word out!

- If you're not familiar with my art, check out the link above, to the last Icon Day batch, to get an idea for the sort of fantasy cartoon work I do! Please make sure that your request and any images or text you link to are all-ages appropriate. What I mean by this, is that I ask that you not link to pictures that contain anatomically correct nudity (barbie-doll nudity is fine) or mature subject matter.

- Request ideas: you, your character, your favorite animal, your pet... and feel free to add a theme, like your favorite historical costuming, your favorite holiday, your favorite food, etc. Listening to music, eating sushi, enjoying a tasty beverage, or lounging with shades are popular themes. If you team up with a friend or your partner, you can both leave requests (one as a reply to the other, so I don't leave track!) for paired icons that match up together, which is fun.

- One icon per person, and one character or subject per request. A small pet like a cat is fine to include, but I reserve the right to draw requests that contain multiple characters on a case-by-case basis.

- No fanart, fan characters or cosplay icons, sorry. This means I'm not drawing icons of your character dressed in Hogwarts robes, your WoW character, Rainbow Dash, a pokemon, your character dressed as one of the Doctors, etc. Though it grieves me, not even Batman, alas. Also, if your reference is of a real person, please make sure it is of you or a friend, and not an actor or model, unless you have permission or the person is a historical figure. D&D and World Tree characters are okay, and I can draw a picture of your character as a brightly colored tiny horse, in my own style.

- Please keep the format in mind, with your request. I'm drawing these at 2"x2", and reducing them to lj icon sized tiny pictures. This lends itself well to head shots and simple props, but not complex actions, full body-shots, or background scenes.

- I reserve the right to modify or interpret requests which break the rules any way I see fit, up to and including drawing a cat in a fez.

- The icons will not be mailed out. You will receive a 100x100 pixel icon in jpg format. I will post the icons as a reply to your request comment, and also in a big batch post, like the one linked above. So, make sure you have comment notification turned on, follow my livejournal, or check back to find your art! I post the icons once all are done, to be fair to those who are at the bottom of the list.

- I have done this 21 times, now, and have drawn several thousand icons for you fine internet folks. The amount of time this takes me will depend on the number of requests I receive, but all of the requests that make it in before the cutoff will be drawn, so no worries there. The batch will take between roughly one and three months, depending on interest. They will get done!

- Based on feedback from folks, a longer request window is appreciated. Requests will be open until Wednesday, May 2nd, when I wake up in the morning. I know my limits, and if the number of requests approaches that, I'll make an announcement and close requests early. Otherwise, hop on in and ask for an icon!

There are tip incentives for folks who leave something in the tip jar! If you do tip, please make sure you let me know in your request. If you intend to tip, but have not yet done so, please leave a follow-up comment so I am not left with a puzzling mystery. You are on the honor system.

This round, the incentives are as follows:

$0 - All icons will be drawn in ink. Folks who tip get an icon in ink and watercolor.
$20 - I get a pizza :d
$100 - If this incentive is reached, incentive reached! All icons will be in ink and watercolor.
$300 - If this incentive is reached, incentive reached! Folks who tip get to request a second icon. You can leave a second request in your comment or as a reply to your comment, when this incentive is reached!
$500 - If this incentive is reached, incentive reached! I will do ustream sessions of the new batch, so you can come watch me draw the icons!
$600 - If this incentive is reached, incentive reached! Folks who tip get a third icon - the third icon, this round, will be a dinosaur. You can let me know your favorite dinosaur, or let me pick one for you. These are not specific characters, though I might draw your character as a dinosaur, or draw a dinosaur with your character's color scheme, as inspiration strikes. DINOSAURS!
$1000 - if tips should reach $1000, I will be ustreaming my other projects, as well - I can't commit to streaming every moment I am at my art desk, but I will choose interesting projects to share throughout the duration I work on batch #22, and include at least one session where I draw doodles for folks on command.

There is also the option of requesting a 3.5"x5.5" picture. These are in addition to your icon request, and are matted and shipped to you! You can see examples of these, too, in the post for the last batch. For $30, I will draw an illustration with a background, based on your prompt - an animal, a creature, a scene, etc. For $40, I will draw a picture of your specific character or two characters. These do not include the publication rights to the images, and I reserve the right to make prints, etc. of the $30 prompts. I won't be making prints with your specific characters.

If you're interested in one of these, please email me at coyotepuck@gmail.com and include your livejournal name, your mailing address, and a description of what you'd like me to draw. This helps me to keep track of your picture, to make sure that you get what you'd like, and that it gets sent out to you. Thank you very much!

And, as always, you can send any questions or need to get hold of me, pop an email off to coyotepuck@gmail.com

And, here is a tip jar. Tips are through Paypal, but you don't need a Paypal account, just a credit or debit card.

- I'd love one with a shopping theme. Perhaps a couple of shopping bags with the handles in her mouth. (you know, those big square paper bags?)
- If tips get to two, I'd love another of her holding a cappuccino
- Ohh a dino themed icon? If it gets to this point, can mine be light orange and chocolate colored? Maybe a stegosaurus?
I just tipped you $4 :)

Here is my reference page http://loddiereference.tumblr.com/

Hmm... I think this time I wanna try pics of my doggies!

Start with my big lovable marshmallow of a 100 pound lab, Dexter http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/9937/img0021od.jpg

And tipped, Confirmation # ending in 041T, so for 2nd icon I'll take the little impetuous boss of the duo, the fiesty shi tzu Gumbo http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/187/img0163e.jpg

Edit: Since there will be 3 icons now, I HAVE to pick T-rex, preferably toony like in We're Back: A Dinosaur Story

Could I get my character Kori : http://www.furaffinity.net/full/7204850/

Promps.. stuffing his face, being overly dramatic, "blah, blah, blah"

My favorite dino... Spinosaurus or Velociraptor.

I'd like some Roanoke love!

http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7001055/ (On the left again)
http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4464477/ (In the middle this time!)

I've been knitting a lot recently, and I've also been eating Primally. So, a pic with my vampire character with his teeth sunk in a steak (Not Stake!), looking all innocent? Maybe all "Big Red Eyes". Bonus if you have him holding on to it with his fingernail/claws. (He has these little delicate white retractable claws, the color of fingernails)

Or maybe one of him knitting the scarf from this icon: http://l-userpic.livejournal.com/106048689/9518802 So, rainbow (Gay pride rainbow) with black between. (He's normally got green eyes, so...green is good!)

Or, I also seriously LOVE this icon, so snarly and bloody is also really fantastic. He's got rather short fangs, so...mind that. ^_^

Thistle: winter wolfthistle_chaser on April 27th, 2012 11:18 pm (UTC)
Hello! I tipped (confirmation number: 8U58...052S).

I'd like a black tabby cat (normal cat, not morph), sleeping on an open book.

If a second one is included for folks who tip: A growling/snarling/angry wolf with raised hackles (real animal again, not an anthropomorphic one).

If we reach dinosaur stage, yay dinosaurs! How about something that flies? A feathery dinosaur, a dinosaur with fake wings, anything!

Thank you!

Edit: I can't stop looking at this one you did. The background is so so so beautiful! It's hard to get any work done, I just sit here smiling at my icon. :)

Confirmation number: 9AF73541PF998012A
And I tipped c: for my second one if it goes that high Id like her if its possible to be sort of mech-ized or a theme aroudn that? If thats not possible than her just playign a DS would be good!
And if it hits the third than Id like the dinosaur to be a raptor or something like that :3

I'd like to have one icon as well if possible!

Here goes a few references of the character I'd like to have drawn:


The basics: it's a crocodile, ya know, long snout, teeth, that stuff. But I won't get into much detail here, have fun drawing it!

Rubn JavierRubn Javier on April 27th, 2012 11:33 pm (UTC)
By the way, I decided to send a tip after all - noticed I had some money in my paypal account still. Is not much but every bit helps, right?

Confirmation number: 7C009073LE831042G

And before it gets too chaotic, I will edit this post and say that I finally got an idea of what I'd like to have drawn; the character I mentioned toasting some red wine with certain bat that requested a picture a few posts below me. We are using each of our requests here, in case you get confused.

I'd love another one of me (recent photo as a reference), but with cat ears or something -- I once suddenly announced "kitty is not pleased!" when I fell off a bed, so I am kitty forevermore now... Possibly playing with yarn, since I crochet? *grin*

Will tip if my finances are okay, as ever. I love your work.
Nikki: (Zell) Excitedshanaqui on April 27th, 2012 11:32 pm (UTC)
Tipped! Confirmation #74G19944XR886053C. For my second icon, I'd like one of my teddy, Edwin, reference here. The scarf is a mini-replica of the Fourth Doctor's, so you probably don't want to include that, but he always wears his blue jacket.

If we get to dinosaurs, I like stegosaurus best (I even own a cuddly pink one).

Having lost my job, I sadly can't tip this time around. If I miraculously get one before icons are done though I will!

Its the same bat character as usual (http://www.teamphobic.com/ninjahijinx/id21/036.jpg) but can I get it 'toasting' a red-liquid filled wine glass to the croc's own toasting icon two posts above?

Antermosiphantermosiph on June 1st, 2012 12:45 am (UTC)
I managed to tip! If a bit delayed. 06E410111H633914F is the confirmation

Could I get the second icon as my character in a very tribal/ritual expression with a witch-doctor like garb. Possibly without pupils/iris's in the eyes to symbolize a spirit possession.

As for the dinosaur one... My favorite is a terror-dactyl of which I have no clue how to spell. I love the wings.

Ah, neat. I'd love to get one of my char (http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7726375/). As for a theme, perhaps something with balloons? XD Maybe nibbling on one or something. Have fun with it if you don't like that idea :p

Confirmation number: 7P4037596A6625721

If we get to the second one, then same char, with a crazy grin like in my current icon? XD Else, have fun with it too XD
If we get to crazy dinosaur levels, then perhaps a raptor with a raccoon mask and toothy grin? X3

haha so much for "today"..but anyway

For my two icons:

These characters
- the one on the right dressed like Anubis, also wearing a black and gold jackal mask without the headdress. Personality is sweet/friendly.
- the one on the left with with a kimono and kitsune mask. Make him seductive or...foxy? lol

The mask designs and poses are your choice.

Dinosaur: Balaur bondoc with a dark blue color scheme.

I meant confirmation number of course haha.

I tipped (Confirmation ending in 634W) , so if incentives reach the second icon, I'd like one of my character James ( http://www.furaffinity.net/view/6159265/ ) Curiously peering over the rim of a jar or can.

Can I get a faceplant sleeping on computer keyboard icon, kinda like this one you did on the last round? http://www.teamphobic.com/ninjahijinx/id21/149.jpg

If it reaches 2 icons...
Maybe holding a bone in her mouth looking happy or hamlet style holding a canine skull and talking to it. Whichever is more inspiring. XD

1. Kenku having been hit with an AR Hammer, causing him to be aged back to a toddler.
2. Virmir having been hit with Kenku's potion, has his tail to such a gigantic length its almost suffocating him.

So, this is my daughter: http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a39/fealubryne/Phone/d0a7e4dd.jpg

She does this thing where she... well, it sound strange, but she hoots. To get our attention, when she's excited, etc. We think it's funny and refer to her as "our little owl." I also have this thing against pink, but having a girl that's been tricky. Instead of pink we've sort of made purple her color, since purple is a little more on the "girly" end of things, without being... y'know pink. So her room is entirely purple, blue, and green butterflies.

I was wondering, could you maybe do fluffy owlet looking up at (or with it perched on its beak, maybe?) a purple (if you end up doing color!) butterfly?

Thank you in advance!

I have donated and the reference is 9BX064351P821470M.

For my icon I would like a cat girl (girl with cat ears) cheerleader. She has long, blonde hair. Her cat ears are yellow with black points. She wears an open kimono over her short cheerleader's skirt and tee shirt. She carries a pompom and a Japanese cheering fan. (Yes, all the cheering motifs and I realise that most of this is not going to fit in the icon but I have no reference pictures...) I thought perhaps blue for the kimono?

Assuming we get to second icons, could I please have "a brightly colored tiny horse, in my own style"?

If we get to dinosaurs, could I please have a muttabuttasaurus?

Thank you for all the beautiful icons.
