Happy Faces

I've been reading through a few of the accounts here of terrible behaviour from various artists. It makes me wonder if they have considered their long-term standing in the fandom, particularly as bad news travels faster than good.

So to remedy this, if you've lost money to an artist that has treated you badly then I'm going to do a bold/stupid thing.

I'm fully aware that there are nearly 700 members here but I will make you a single Happy Face icon for *FREE* to cheer you up. They're only simple little headshots but ideal as avatars for use everywhere.

I don't want money, I just want to make people happy as small recompense for fellow artists that treat customers like trash.

more info here: http://www.stoneorchid.co.uk/artonline/happyface.htm

N.B. I do hope I don't regret this XD

They're adorable. :) I applaud your effort but I admit I think that it should be the artist who was a git in the first place responsibility to recompense their customers. :)

Meh, looks like I don't qualify then... I was always lucky with commissions so far. :P

Would being cheated out of $195.00 by a fursuit maker qualify?

I'd say so, yes. Drop me a line: enquiries@stoneorchid.co.uk and put "Happy Faces" in the subject. ^_^

Its a LJ icon credited to you.

I'd love to buy one or two from you...they're ADORABLE, but I haven't been "burned" by any bad artists per se. :)
Dec. 3rd, 2006 11:53 pm (UTC)
Well as for buying them, I just say to make a donation of what you think they're worth. I mostly do them for fun but also in the hope they'll raise a few pennies for my car and, when I've raised what I need, worthy causes like donating to FA and VCL.

If you want a couple, drop me a line: enquiries@stoneorchid.co.uk with what Happy Faces you'd like, donations can be made to the same address.

Good luck!

Dec. 3rd, 2006 10:28 pm (UTC)
Thats a very nice gesture.
