Sorry but, the sentence "Creating a fursona from another EF member" makes no sense to me :) Could you please explain what you mean?

I mean a Fursona Picture

Also, ich glaube auf englisch wird das nichts. Wenn du jemanden beauftragen möchtest, für dich ein Bild zu malen, dann bist du hier an der falschen Adresse :) Und wieviel das kostet hängt natürlich davon ab, was genau du willst, und welchen Künstler du dazu beauftragst. Ich würe dir empfehlen, doch mal auf http://forum.furbase.de/ nachzufragen, da sind einige (deutschsprachige) Künstler unterwegs, die auch Aufträge für Charakter-Portraits oder Con-Badges annehmen. Für das Eurofurence-Board ist das aber off-topic. Das Fragen & Antwort-Board ist für Fragen und Antworten da, die die Con betreffen :) Ich hoffe das hilft dir weiter.

That depends on your needs and negotiation skills. "How much does a car cost?"

Prices usually start at 5€ for a rough sketch and are limited only by your budget. For 20€, chances are good for you to have an artist draw a fursona badge for you, colored and laminated, but the exact price is up to the artists, of course.

It is wise to approach the artist of your choice with your drawing request now, to allow the artist to finish or at least sketch your request beforehand, and agree on a price.

Either way, Cheetah's suggestion of checking the Furbase forum certainly is advisable.

--- GERMAN

Das hängt ganz von deinen Anforderungen und deinem Verhandlungsgeschick ab. "Wieviel kostet ein Auto?"

Preise fangen bei 5€ für eine grobe Skizze an und sind nur durch dein Budget begrenzt. Für 20€ stehen deine Chancen gut, dass ein Zeichner eine badge deiner fursona in Farbe anfertigt und laminiert, aber den genauen Preis festzulegen bleibt selbstverständlich dem Zeichner überlassen.

Es ist klug den Zeichner deiner Wahl bereits jetzt mit deinem Wunsch zu konfrontieren, damit selbiger bereits dein Bild fertigstellen oder zumindest eine Skizze anfertigen kann. Auch über einen Preis kann man sich jetzt schon einig werden.

In jedem Fall ist Cheetahs Vorschlag, sich mal auf dem Furbase-Forum umzusehen, absolut empfehlenswert.

Whichever artist you choose to commission for a Fursona image, icon, or avatar, be sure to provide that artist with a written description of that fursona - species, gender, distinctive coloring or clothing (if the character wears clothes).

Does the fursona walk upright/erect on two legs, and if so - does the character walk on toes ("Digitigrade Stance") or on the flat of his/her feet ("Plantigrade Stance")?

Is there a preferred prop associated with the fursona - a sword, a gun, a spear, a book, a staff, anything of that nature?

What is the fursona's most common or preferred emotional attitude or expression?  Is there a preferred pose?

The trick is to be able to present the artist with enough information to go on, to make the appearance of your fursona unique, and pleasing to you - while at the same time, allowing the artist the creative license and flexibility that helps the artist add personality and life to your image...and yet makes it fun for the artist, as well.

Limit this description to only the visible features; the artist does not need to know the history or motivations of the fursona, as they can't be drawn.

Type up this description on a single page of paper - and if you have the language skills, perhaps in english on on side, and german on the other - and print multiple copies, to leave with individual artists who accept your commission.  Include your name and contact information on this description sheet!
