So what we have here, gentlemen, is my OC: Vampire Samurai, a very interesting character if I may say so myself. Commissioned because I’d like him drawn, and because the artist is in dire need of money to attend a convention. As you see, I just presented my character, gave a little bit of research material and his article, and then tofutiles turned all of that into this.
I am just completely forgetting to update this tumblr despite checking in every day. So, here’s a very good friend of mine on devART drawing John Kilburne, absolutely unmotivated on my side and for free, just how I like them! In the future, people will be drawing John Kilburne unmotivated and free all the time, I guarantee it. I like the finished version, but I wanted to highlight the eyebrows in the sketch. Those are some very nice eyebrows.
€3 each including shipping (and that’s to anywhere i can ship them to). €10 for the entire Marked cast: the 6 main characters, plus a bonus 7th phone charm. Check out that bargain holy shit.
If you want me to make a phone charm of your favorite character, I’m totes up for it, but it’ll be €5. (also I’m already planning on making some fire emblem units into phone charms so if you want one of the ones I was already planning to make, those’d still be €3.)

I’m getting me an Applejack one =D Deffo check out this girl, she has mad skills
tumblrbot asked: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT?
Hmm… grapes. No wait, inanimate… um, rocks!
windythepoo asked: Why do you write such good stories?
You have to keep doing it, no matter how hard or annoying it seems. You can always do better and you can always do better than the better but at some point, you just have to sit down and write or nothing ever gets done… it’ll just be ideas. If you have free time in the future you can revisit what you wrote, improve it, but you can’t get stuck in the past either. We all have to just move on. Once something is done, leave it at that. “I could have told her something else,” “This would have worked better” … questions like that will just gnaw at you. Writing good stories is listening to those fantasies in your mind and then get them down on paper. It may be crude at first and the ideas terrible but each failure is a cobble on the road to success.

Hey, paesanos! It’s The Super Madman Super Offer!
I’m the Peace-Loving Madman, and writing is my game, I’m not like the others who get all the fame. If your idea is in trouble, you can call me on the double, I’ll help you out, you’ll be hooked on the Madman! Uh! You’ll be hooked on the Madman. Gimme gimme, gimme gimme! You’re in for a treat, so hang on to your seat. Get ready for adventures and remarkable feats.
1) Starting fee of the first ten thousand words up front + two (2) euro per thousand words above that, and I will dedicate my free time to your story.
Time: a week, give or take.
2) Starting fee of the first ten thousand words up front + one (1) euro per thousand words above that, and I will lob your story in with all my other projects.
Time: a month, give or take.
3) Request it for free at the current “Story request” which technically, at the moment, is a strict pony fanfic project but I’ll change that. The requests are subject to user votes and I will begin writing the one with the most tallies.
Time: theoretically the same as 2), but there will probably be someone before you. (Not to mention the chance of your story not being chosen.)
- Notes: I won’t actually be able to tell you from the start how long a story will be. Depends on my interest in it and the meat on its bones (no offence to veggies). A normal chapter for me is eight or ten thousand words. A two-parter is twenty to twenty-three. Time is relative and there are many factors that could tip it either way.
WHAT I DO
Everything except furry. Bonus to you if you can suggest something I would refuse (other than furry).
My strong suit is science fiction and fantasy, but I do dabble.
I don’t really do fanfiction beside ponies, but if the price is right and it’s a franchise I’m familiar with, sure.
WHY ME, YOU MIGHT BE ASKING?
Am I really worthy of the price? Well, check my gallery and read some of my other stuff to check for yourself.
Oh right, credentials. I’ve been writing for five years but my mind has been concocting since I was a boy. English is my second language but you’ll hardly notice it, I’d wager. I can write your story in English and Danish and I can pepper it with broken German. Everything else is google translate unless otherwise provided; also a strange inability to use semicolons properly.
A note on devART will be fine: http://peacelovingmadman.deviantart.com/ Should you not have a devART, then tumblr also works. Should you not have that either, then I hope you can at least send a mail: jens5461 at Hotmail dot com (make it into a real address yourself. I’m a little paranoid about spambots.)
If you have any questions after reading this, comment. If I deem it valuable I’ll put it here. But why would you ask something stupid anyway!
Rules are the same as above except we’ll be able to tell more precisely how much it’ll cost. So, just send me a link to the fic and I’ll throw the translation up on google docs eventually. If you so wish, I can also post it on deviantART, FIMFiction or Pony Fiction Archive. Now keep in mind that I will be editing someone else’s story, so I need to personally ask for consent to a) translate it and b) publish it.
Other than that, there’s the normal way and the Max Power way, which is just like the normal way except I’ll be translating EVERYTHING. (Rainbow Dash = Regnbue Spurt). Be forthcoming with other requests from the get-go.
I’ve been doing this kind of thing for over ten years as a hobby, and if that’s not enough, check out my translation of the first chapter of Three Kingdoms (hasn’t been proofread yet, so may contain some errors. The numbers are annotations to be added later.) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-IbYC423wJDDQLtYjMewJHePvCoeDUuz_6MkXEoMijg/edit
OBLIGATORY BUT TOTALLY AVOIDABLE MUSHY STUFF
I’ve been offering commissions for some time but I’ve been kind of hiding because I didn’t really want to do it. But I’ve matured as a writer since then and I feel more comfortable… all right, yeah, I’ve happened upon a situation where it would be nice to supplement my income.
The last one for now and what a way to round it off! I give you the enigmatic, the enigmatic, the indescribable, the demon god Lucifer (Toshin). The mask was done completely according to specs but now I’m starting to wonder if I should change it. Whether the effect I had imagined has been replaced… or lost.
Jumping on the pony wagon, here’s Maxwell and Lohengrinn as ponies and aren’t they just beautiful! This was used as the concept art for a fanfic I had going, but it never really got any anywhere. Just a mishmash of ideas with no structure.
Bonus trivia: the only picture of those two together, oddly enough.

A bust she drew for me of John Kilburne in his new suit for the preview of the second season of Earth-Bound Angels 2.5. For some reason reminds me of the Beatles.
