Heyoo everyone, I am finally putting myself out there to face the requests of the community in Source Filmmaker. From posters, to animations, it's time to start somewhere, and soon.

Just to barter with you guys, I'll be taking two free poster requests per month, then the rest are priced. You don't HAVE to request from me, Source Filmmaker is free, and so are all the resources I use, anyone can easily make their own. I'm just doing this to get better at it. Here's the details:

Rules:

Ask nicely, as simple as that.

Nothing NSFW. Go find someone else for that. I'm here for professional work.

When requesting a commission, please state the type of commission you want: Poster, Wallpaper, Avatar, Banner. (Animated Posters will have to be discussed through PM).

When requesting a commission, please refer to the examples of quality: Lazy, Meh, Average, OCD. Basically will help me understand how much TLC to put in the project.

When requesting a commission, please give an estimate of "how soon" you want this done: 3 Days, 1 Week, 1 Month, etc. This will help me prioritize projects. (Don't go competing with each other to get your poster request earlier. That will just get your request ignored.)

When requesting a commission, please point out if you want post-processing: Raw SFM Render or Photoshop. This will organize which projects need post-processing and help speed up the priority of projects.

When requesting a commission, please use the template provided to request your character, background, and other additional details.

That's basically it for the rules. Now to give examples and details:

The Free Commissions: Basically the first two people to post a request here will get their poster done for free.

Restrictions: The free posters will be created under the "Average" and "1 Week" categories. Refer to the examples for a better understanding.

Paid Commissions: Basically every other commission request that the person is aware of and paying for. Paid commissions are 2 ref for the base poster (consisting of one character and background [e.g. maps]). Any additional character would be 1 rec, particles based on complexity could vary from 1 scrap to 1 ref for each variation used, and 1 key for custom scenebuilds (additional keys will be required based off sizes of scenebuilds, and examples will be provided). And just to clean this up and make it cleaner, we'll call these "elements":

Elements:

Base Cost: 2 Refined

Background: Backgrounds are basically maps (e.g. Upward, Hightower, etc)

Additional Characters: 1 Reclaimed each

Particles: Consist of Unusual effects, killstreak effects, weapon projectiles, or clouds, water, smoke, fire, etc. 1 Scrap - 1 Refined ; based on complexity and type.

Scenebuilds: Scenebuilds are custom designed "maps" which take a good amount of time to build: 1 key - 3 keys ; based on general size of scenebuild.

Template for Requests:

Main Character:

Background/Scenebuild:

Additional Character(s):

Particles:

Summary:

So a perfect example for this would be:

Main Character: Scout (with whatever hats/miscs/paints) or Ponies, etc.

Background/Scenebuild: Upward (location optional: e.g. Near Last, or Point B.)

Additional Character(s): Soldier (hats/miscs/paints) or Ponies, etc.

Particles: Unusuals, Clouds, Explosions

Summary: Define what you want. Scout jumping over the cart while Soldier shoots the ground

at Scout's feet, rocket explosions, cart toppling over, and rainy skies. You

can even do a sketch of how you want something to look if you really want to.

Examples for Commission Requests:

Type:

Poster/Wallpaper - Poster is a lower 1080p resolution version for use on DA or websites, whereas Wallpaper will be in 4K for use as your desktop wallpaper, etc. (Posters can be wallpapers and vice versa.)
