crayon art rewards-donation drive to illustrate the wiki
« on: February 15, 2011, 02:25:20 am »

This isn't mine, instead it's my crayon reward which just came this weekend! Hooray!!!
Budda Bronze Colossus Flicks Away Annoyance:

It's more colorful IRL, I'm not good with the retouching and all....

so, you guys know that when donating to toady you can either request an ascii art reward or a crayon masterwork, right?
upon seeing toady's rendition of a bronze colossus, and how much it differed from my own, this idea sprang to my mind

what if we started donating to toady for renditions of df's creatures and plants, in a manner similar to the creature sponsorship? we could then post these pictures on the wiki, on each creature's page...
this could overload toady with work, so we should regulate this initiative in some way, and a minimum donation amount should be stipulated, even if this ammount was to be reached by several people's donations combined...

but before we start pouring money onto the unsuspecting toad, let's decide how many creature's we'll sponsor per month and how much will we pay for each

link to the wiki's list of creatures

EDIT:eh, i went ahead and donated 25 for a crundle doing something crundly

"he he he"

cool, that gives us somewhat of a head start, if you're willing to share and have a way to digitize them

----------------

well, as long as this doesn't start to get out of hand, perhaps we can live without establishing a limit. i'll update the op with a list of the creatures we already have, i'll include yours if you don't mind, applegren

I could digitize them at the library and I had planned to share them eventually anyway. So sure. :) You forgot to put your Bronze Colossus into the list of creatures we have already!

Hehe, this is an awesome idea.

It doesn't matter much if Toady changes the descriptions later, these are still colorful renditions.

I've got a drunk dwarf around somewhere and I'd happily donate for a dragon.

Absolutely you can use mine. I think this is a great idea with the only caveat being that I wouldn't want Toady getting swamped or feeling put upon. It's my understanding that while you can request a crayon reward and while it will be at least somewhat Dwarf Fortress related Toady gets to draw what Toady feels like drawing. As someone who has done, many years ago, a bit of professional illustration I can assure you that drawing what you want is definitely different than drawing a request. Also I wouldn't want Toady to feel that we were somehow equating his work with 'that's how it is'.

All that being said, I love seeing other crayon rewards and reading other peoples ASCII rewards.

I, too, plan on donating again when I can. It was a great experience.

That is a wasteful idea that recklessly endangers life. I applaud your genius!

I have a crayon art that is the dwarf fortress food web from when elves first became cannibals.  Includes an elf(overdramatic teeth), a dwarf, a rat, a cat, a plump helmet, a dragon, and a carp.   The dwarf may or may not be drunk...He's holding a mug, so probably just a crafter.

Unfortunately I do not own a scanner.  Actually yes I do have a scanner, but I won't be able to use it til tomorrow.  I'll see about scanning it then.
