And a new price point for something different this year. I've found more and more that a head sketch turns into... well, something more. I run away with the sketches, but end up charging the same for extra detail and work. Alan Sugar would FIRE my ass for that.

With that in mind, I'm taking on TORSO sketches at TFNation this year. Ooh La La, indeed. These are waist-up half figure sketches, with AT LEAST one limb and/or interesting background element. These are going for £60 each, but hopefully you'll enjoy the bang you receive for your UK buck.

Here's how to get on THAT list...
Pre-Order Price for an A4 Black & White TORSO ONLY shot (10 available) is £60

To be eligible for these, all you need to do is:

* Reply in the comments section below,
* State YOUR name, the name of the CHARACTER you want, and an idea of the day you'll be available to collect the piece.
* Sorry, no fan/original characters, but feel free to request non-TF characters!
* PLEASE only order a sketch if you will be able to attend to pick it up, and, you know, pay for it.
* The numbers available are as stated above. Once they've been filled, please don't send any more requests unless further slots become available.
* I will be providing more sketches AT TFNation. I tend to get booked up VERY quickly there, but if you don't want to commission me here and now, you could take your chance at the show.

Let's see how this goes as an experiment, eh? 

Looking forward to seeing you!

Hi Nick!

My name is Jana.
It is possible to add two characters?
I would like a torso shot with two characters from IDW: Jazz and Soundwave. I would like a mischievous Jazz and Soundwave looking at him like: "Jazz, don't".
If not, don't count this message, thanks!

Thanks for your time!

hello I'm Angela Chen and I want some Dai Atlas and Star Saber in my life plz ;P I don't know if I can order characters for two.If not, I need Dai Atlas instead.
I may reach to you on Friday for you will be surrounded by fans in the following days, but I will be there for three days! I love your art so much and can't wait to see how you will express these two. Must be adorable ;P

Robin Hunt said...

Hi Its Robin Hunt, there all weekend from Friday and can provide sketch covers if you are willing to use them. For a torso please can I have Rodimus (MTMTE version) and happy to chip in extra if you whack the Rodpod in background. Ive got so many ideas but they are more than just Torsos like full on commissions - do you accept them?
Message me if you get a chance to discuss otherwise i'll buy whatever you come up with for me. I hope you don't mind me getting a Torso & headshot.

Hi Nick, Jobot here.
Would like to request Lady Cyclonus (aka Cyclonus' MTMTE holoform) as a Ghostbuster (2016 version - wearing the uniform and with the proton pack on; her hair can be up or down, your choice).
I'll be there all three days. Thanks!

Hello Nick!

I would absolutely love to get a pic of the adorable Hubcap, if that's okay! Maybe with some spider webs or spiders? But honestly, I'm fine with absolutely anything, whatever you can think of!

I'm there all weekend and can pick it up whenever is good for you! Thank you so much!

My name is Aline Baumgartner :)

LM2 said...

Good day!
My name is Anna Malkova (larrydraws) and I'd love to get a picture of Prowl searching for Springer in the Noizemaze. :D Can pick up at any day of the con but will aim for Saturday or Friday.
Thank you so much for all of your breathtaking work and looking forward to seeing you live!

Hi again,

Jazz and Ryan here again, wasn't sure if we'd be restricted from ordering a torso picture after ordering a headshot, but if that's the case, please feel free to disregard this message and skim over it!

If possible though, can we request something special? For Richard Newman being there, can we request Toadborg from Bucky O'Hare, homaging the classic Shockwave 'Transformers Are All Dead' cover pose?

Battleworn but not damaged, this character chilled me as a kid and it would be amazing to have you draw this and then have it signed afterward!

Ryan will be doing pick up and will be there all weekend to grab it whenever is easiest for you.

Once again, thanks for offering these and I hope you're not too busy that you get to enjoy the festivities!

Sprite Anansi said...

Hi Nick, Sprite here. If you've still got a slot to go, can I request Tailgate? (with added Cyclonus if I can add an additional character).

Sprite Anansi said...

(P.S. I'll be there all weekend of course.)

Laura Knapton said...

Hi Nick, just a heads-up: I shot you an e-mail a while back about arranging pickup at TFN for an old AA commission (happy Snare). If it didn't go through, please let me know here, and I can resend. Thanks!

banatog said...

Hi Nick, Andy (bogatan) curious if you still had the Ikard you accidentally started a few years ago, if so would be happy to pay for its completion. If not, I'll take my chances catching you at TFN as I'll probably badly explain what I'm after here and would feel bad about a repeat. Thanks

Erika said...

Hi Nick. :)
At TFNation, would you be open for full body sketches, too? I'm asking because then I'd get my lazy morning grump a*** out of bed as early as possible during the show to get a spot. :)

Erika :)

Alex Valente said...

Hi Nick! I can't seem to count up the comments to see whether the limit was reached or not, so in case it has, please just ignore this. :)

Name: Alex
Character: Alpha Bravo (can we try in 'organic' bio-disguise robot mode, à la chimeracons?)
Available: all event, at AV desk or cleaning up after you
I can pay on collection or in advance via PayPal.


Nick said...

Mochito, Angela Ouroboros, Sprite, Robin Hunt: To add in extra characters or detail/heavy elements, it'll be an additional £20. Please let me know if you want to proceed, or if you're happy with single figs. Thanks!

Gabe V.J. said...

Hi Nick!

Gabe Jo (@the_gaboteur), Tarantulas. I can pick up Friday, Saturday, or Sunday of the Con. Can't wait to meet you! Cheers

Hi Nick, this is Dean (@minimusambush)
Can I get Ambulon, in happier times? I can pick up all three days of the con.
