Mika's Second Annual Birthday Art Sale!

It's my birthday tomorrow, and I want to make you some art to celebrate! Last year's icon sale was a great success, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for me to draw this time!

You set the prices!

Tips of $1 or more get you an icon, 100 x 100 pixels, featuring the subject of your choice.

Tips of $5 or more get you a sketch based on your prompt! These will be 700 pixels on the longest side, and of about the same level of complexity as my Sketch Fest work.

I love discovering new stories to read, but I'd like to get these done in a reasonable amount of time, so in order to minimize the amount of reading/research involved, please try to limit yourself to twitter-length prompts (~140 characters). Links to reference pics or character descriptions are welcome, but if you want to link me to a novel, please consider requesting a Story Sketch instead. Unless you ask for something that would look better in monochrome, all artwork will be full colour.

I recently found out that the local art school holds open life drawing sessions over the summer, so proceeds from this sale will go toward studio fees and art supplies. It's been a long time since I've drawn from a live model, and I'm really looking forward to it!

Bonus! Last year's event brought in $29 in tips; equal to the age I was turning. If tips reach or exceed $30 this year, all participants will be entered in a draw to receive a free figure drawing, on actual paper!

Get your art here!

Or let me know if you'd like to use an alternate payment service.

I donated! My paypal account is linked to my kc.rr.com email, which I seldom check any more, so please don't email it. :) (If you do need to email me for some reason, I use my Gmail.com account, which is LadyRowyn.)

I'd like a sketch of a tall, handsome man with bronze skin and long white-blonde hair, in archaic attire -- something like a tailcoat, jabot, lace cuffs -- and looking a bit menacing. I picture him looking a bit like Sorin Markov, without the ragged look to the hair. And obviously I don't want him to look like a copy of Sorin. :) Lucius Malfoy with darker skin would be about right, too.

I'd prefer a minimal background and a focus on the face and perhaps upper torso, not a full-body portrait.

Thank you, and happy birthday!
Happy Birthday! May it be filled with much joyous reflection and celebration of all that you have accomplished and enjoyed in life, thus far! May there be many, many more such days to celebrate! :D

I've plunked in $6. It's been suggested that a certain wee black bunny should be featured in a sketch. :D

And I can use another Hung Gar Panda icon, as the first one was so awesome!(Maybe an angry panda this time?)
Maybe not so much an angry panda as a 'fierce' one... :P
I have donated.

I was hoping of a picture of several of Tala's feathers from this story http://rix-scaedu.livejournal.com/83526.html
Sending a donation! I'd love a sketch of Malaamig: http://www.tornworld.net/members/cisdisplay.php?id=16 - with a dog or two, if possible! :)
