God dammit... why am I so sleepy lately? I dropped down from working 67 hours a week at two jobs to just working 39 at one that pays considerably better (usually), you would think I could get my fucking shit together. Technically, I'm even sleeping better than I did years ago when I had this same job full-time. Lately, I get home, and I just keep nodding off in my chair while I am trying to write or draw, and it's very frustrating as I have two commissions due. Anywho, you probably don't care about my whining. Get back on your fucking Patreon work, Mace. lol

Over and out.

New Commission Guidelines

Sat Jun 13, 2015, 7:53 PM
So, moving on, I wanted to address something I have been quiet on for a while, and that is:

"Do you do commissions, and if so, what are your rates?"

So, I am doing an updated list as of right now!

Commissions:

CLOSED


Feel free to drop by my page, as I am infinitely more affable there than I am here ;)

Ok, problems and issues resolved. A-Kon was a blast, and now we are just making sure we don't suffer the after-effects of "con crud".
Very angry right now. And what I need to be doing is sleeping for my road trip to A-Kon in Dallas. *sigh*
Wow, I am just stunned. This is the SECOND time I have been informed that someone other than me, or the series artist for Ship in a Bottle has been commissioned to draw a picture of my characters. I'm flattered that you think so highly of my works that you want to have a personalized picture of your very own to hang in your gallery. But then you go and insult me, you insult my series artist, and you insult everyone whom I have designated to work on the series by going and saying "Nope. I have no intention of giving you my money. I'll give it to some other fucking guy! Fuck you, Mace Paladino! You clearly don't need any money for your YEARS of work. AH HAHAHAHAHA!"

Ok, maybe that's hyperbolic. But it's how it makes me feel when you do that. I have personally opened commissions as low as TEN, MOTHERFUCKING, DOLLARS, and you didn't hire me. But you go and find someone ELSE to do it. And I designed these fucking characters! How dare you.

So, here's the rule, now and forever: YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO HIRE SOMEONE TO DRAW MY CHARACTERS, EVER. You may draw them yourself. You may submit them to my fan art gallery FOR FREE. You may even submit them to DA FOR FREE. But you may NEVER. EVER. Commission one of my characters from another artist, ever, or you will incur my wrath. And by that, I mean you will make EVERYONE suffer because you are STEALING from me, and the artist who works EXTREMELY hard to bring these comics to you. We can't make a living if you STEAL from us. And for your information, it is NOT FREE for me to produce this series. That's why we have a Patreon. See it here? www.patreon.com/macepaladino THERE. You can't say I didn't tell you, now.

Now go on. Get off my fucking lawn, God dammit. I am so fucking furious right now.

Thanks! I started watching you because I like your gallery, and we've talked before. I was the guy looking for artists for my "moe catgirl" thing a while back. XD

I may talk to you about... other things. XD

i want to start a group with similar ideas and i dont want anyone to think i am copying someone. 

i just dont want you to feel offended if i start a group similar to yours.
