    Storn's Art & Characters thread.

    Storn, a follow-up question (or two), if I may. ;-) Per your website, you state that one of your personal commissions (as opposed to a more formal "for publication"/business commission) does not include any rights for printing, (etc.). However, what is your stance on using commissioned art on a personal webpage (for ex.: on the PC write-up page for the character illustrated)? I'd presume you'd be OK with that, especially if the buyer includes the appropriate attribution with a link back to your art webpage, but I wondered what your take on this would be. Also, do you have any standard attribution verbiage you'd prefer to be used by your customers, when they post such? Thanks, again! ;-) Franklin

    Storn's Art & Characters thread.

    Storn, I have some questions about your work, if you don't mind. From your website (URL from your signature), I see that a "basic" work (one figure, no background) is $70. About how many hours does this usually take you? I'm just wondering what your per-hour rate would calculate as (again, if this isn't too personal). I read the blogs of a few other artists, and try to get a "feel" for their respective price ranges.) I've always liked your work, and I certainly hope you're able to support yourself by doing what you enjoy. Do you get enough work or commissions to go full-time? And, do you ever work at conventions? (If so, which ones?) Thanks! ;-) Franklin

    Looks nice! ;-) Based on the skin color and the eyes, I presume this ex-trooper is of the same alien race as Grand Admiral Thrawn? Franklin

    What is the current URL for the tool (*) you are using, please? Thanks! ;-) Franklin * -- English-friendly version, I'm hoping. The URL on the first page points to some site using a non-English language.

    What's the second-best superhero RPG?

    "Truth and Justice" by Chad Underkoffler. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truth_&_Justice T&J uses Chad's PDQ (Prose Descriptor Qualities) system. T&J is a very rules-light game that allows for role-playing and storytelling to take center stage. And the way that damage resolution works explains so easily why, for instance, Peter Parker's social life constantly gets trashed, while Spider-Man can continue to fight. The core rules for PDQ is available for download free of charge, if you'd like to see for yourself. http://www.warehouse23.com/products/pdq-number-pdq-sharp Franklin
