Hello Peeky,



I made the PDF and uploaded them into File Folders in Graphic Art project at Guru.

As to the remaining scenes. It is impossible now to determine a fixed price per a scene, because I do not know how many different new versions of compositions you will want, how many new characters and changes will be. Let's move step by step from scene to scene. Often the changes on the scene and characters take more time than working on a big tonal black and white original.

I would like you give a more specific description of what you want to see in the scenes.

 


Thanks.

 

Ruslan

Thank you. They look incredible! 


On the estimate: I do understand - I am too picky. I really do understand, I figured you would give me a total based upon your most time consuming characters and scenes...

 

 

Apr, 9 Peeky

 

Recently I asked about some getting some of the draft art. You quoted me a price. I reviewed our agreements. Basically, you are to provide all drafts to me for a small fee and postage. However, the agreement does not require your signature be placed on the drafts. So in our recent discussion, the prices you quoted me, were basically to sign the drafts which is your right., Since the books are unpublished and no value to the public, I do not have a need for your signature.

However, if we are to continue working together on the remaining scenes, I need a show of good faith. We have done a lot of work together. There must be an incredible number of preliminary drafts when you consider the many revisions that I have requested AND PAID FOR.

I am attaching a word file with our agreement made initially in 2014 and your ratification of it in 2016.

You need not sign anything, but I would like all of the drafts mailed to me. Of course I will pay for the shipping and $XXX since I really paid for them in the form of revision fees. Please review our agreement which is attached



Apr, 14 Peeky

 

Well????? I need to move on. What is the issue? Will you honor your word?


Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!

Hello Peeky,

 

I could not answer before.

Also I am continuing to wait for the exact description of the next scene.

Concerning "deserved help" mentioned by you.

We discussed Aug 26 the price on my pencil drawings on paper
and you said you would consider it.

___________

 

Aug 26, 2016 Ruslan Vigovsky


"Regarding prices for the originals drawings with my signature.
I'd like $XXX for a pencil sketch (A-4) (I will choose the best of them) and $XXX for the pencil drawing on the A-3."
___________

I am also attaching my message (word file) where the price of the prints is spoken.

The drawings have a certain value unlike the prints.
Moreover, this is a reasonable price for the pencil drawings on paper.

So $XXX is the price for 10 drawings A-4.

We talked about my signature on prints. The signature on the print adds value to it.

The expert will always determine my authorship. The very drawing done by hand on paper is my author's signature. It's even more than the letters of the signature.

 


Thanks,

 

Ruslan

 

 

Apr, 15 Peeky

 

 

OK - you are confusing me. I am going to break this conversation into different groups and emails so there is no confusion. I agree with and am 100% behind the agreement we made in the attached word file. it is my understanding you are also agreeable and willing to move forward with that agreement if there is interest from Kickstarter - Yes?

 

 

Apr, 15 Peeky

 

 

Greetings Ruslan,

 

 

The bolded language below...I acknowledge that you have the right to charge what you like for your signature on the original images.

Our original agreement which you ratified when we changed the job description did not require that you sign any original images that you drew. Therefore, you have the right to charge what you like.

The original agreement did call for you to turn over all original images (unsigned) at my request as long as I paid for their shipping to me and a nominal fee for collecting and packaging them.

This is what I am asking for. I would like the originals unsigned shipped to me and I will pay you shipping and $XXX for packaging and your trouble. Please review the agreement we made which was in the previous email. I do not expect any signatures on any of the draft renderings, but I do expect all renderings as this is what our agreement said.

 

 

Apr, 16 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Hello Peeky,


In your message from Oct 25, 2014 there is no clarity about the estimation of the originals.

There is only "deserved help". I never said that I would give it for free.
We started to discuss the price Aug 26, 2016.
You know my suggestion. $XXX is the nominal very low price for A4 pencil drawing on paper by my hand with my signature or without.
For $XXX I can send 10 original drawings (without a signature, if you insist) to your choice + shipping $XXX. Also the price includes keeping the originals within three years.
Besides, I am saving digital originals and am able to send them for free.

What about the prints which agreed before ( $XXX, Nov 15, 2014 ) ?
I give you low prices given this arrangement.

 

 

Happy Easter!

 

Ruslan

 

 

Apr, 16 Peeky

 

I think it is time for a mediation with Guru. I will see what I can arrange. Regardless of how it turns out with the original drafts, I understand that you are still agreeable with signing the reproductions for the fees stated in the word file that you sent in an email yesterday? yes?




Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Apr, 16 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

I would like to clarify the price for prints. The price on prints with my signature (or without) on paper A-4: $XXX for one print for 100-200 prints and after 200 prints $XXX for each print.
For example 250 A-4 prints = (200 x 12) + (50 x10) = $XXX

The price on prints with my signature (or without) on paper A3 + Matte Canvas (12.9 "x 19") using a border is $XXX for 100-200 prints and $XXX for each print after the 200. For example 250 A-3 prints = (200 x 22) + (50 x19) = $XXX

Regarding sending of the pencil drawings on paper. I selected the best 25 drawings and sketches on A-4. All the rest is rather an intermediate technical parts. There is no sense to take them. It should be noted many improvements were done on the computer with digital pencil. Thus, some images are only in digital form. Before sending the originals of artworks it is necessary to take a permit to export artworks in accordance with Ukrainian legislation. This refers to the drawings, graphics, painting, sculpture, etc. The price for the permission has risen recently. I take it into account in the price for shipping. Also the price for international shipment has slightly increased.

I can send you these 25 drawings on the A-4 for $XXX. This includes packaging and shipping.

Large tonal drawings of scenes with pencil on paper A-3 + (5pcs.) Can be sent for $XXX.

 

 

Hope for your understanding.

 

Ruslan

 

 

Apr, 16 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

I would like to add that the art value of the prints will be with my signature and printing under my control.

 

Apr, 17 Peeky

 

What does this mean?

 

 

Apr, 17 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Please clarify what you do not understand.

 

Apr, 17 Peeky

 

You will be printing and signing the art right? If so then who else can control the output. I am asking about the email that had the question. You had a one line statement and I did not understand it or if I did I do not understand the point. I was asking you to clarify


Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Apr, 17 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Yes, you are right. These are obvious things.
I meant that if someone else would print the illustrations, this would not be the author's printing.

What about my previous big message? Do you agree?

 

Apr, 18 Peeky

 

Currently, I have no interest in any of those drafts. However, you do not own them and have no rights in their disposition to anyone else. Do you understand that?

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 


Apr, 19 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

 

Peeky,

 

Do you want me to continue to keep the paper and digital originals for you?

While I would like to submit an invoice $XXX for the work done on the soft covers.

You approved them on March 26.

 


Thanks.

 

Ruslan

 

Apr, 20 Peeky

 

Yes, save the paper - that is our agreement.

Funny - you didn't mention the billing until this incident. If you think that is fair and honorable then bill it.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 


Apr, 21 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

 

Peeky,

 

I sent the invoice. I forgot that I did not submit the invoice for the work done (of March 26).

 


Thanks. 

Ruslan

 

 

Jun, 2 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Hello Peeky,

 

For a long time, there was no news from you.
Are you planning to do the book illustrations in the near future?

 

Thanks, 

Ruslan

 

 

Jun, 2 Peeky


No, probably not any new art. However, I still intend to do Kickstarter and do intend to hopefully sell hundreds of the signed archival prints that we agreed to.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Jun, 2 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Which of prints would you like to get at the beginning?
I would make a qualitative printing with the signatures as we agreed to.

 

Ruslan

 

 

Jun, 2 Peeky

 

Oh that Will depend upon the orders placed through kick starter for when I run that program platform which will not be for a couple of months due to new client Overload at my real job

 



Jul, 6 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Hello Peeky,

 

Hope you are well.

 

How are things going on with the project and prints?
It would be good to do something in the near future.
I just finished a couple of the projects and have the time for working.

 

What do you think?

 

 

Thanks,

 Ruslan

 

 

Jul, 7 Ruslan Vigovsky

 


Hello Peeky,

 

I wrote you through the Guru, perhaps you did not receive my message.
How are things going on with the project and prints?
It would be good to do something in the near future.
I just finished a couple of big projects and have the time for working.

Frankly, I'm surprised that you hired on Guru artists, who can not draw (rough mistakes in the forms and anatomy). For example, they do not know how to draw hands and feet...
This is a very low amateur level and they will not be able to make illustrations at the high level that will match the style found.

 

Hope for your understanding.

 

 

Best regards. 

Ruslan

 

 

Jul, 7 Peeky

 

Yes I did turn to other artists. We had an agreement about my receiving draft art. I thought I had written it so that I was to receive ALL drafts from you for a nominal fee since I felt I had paid for those drafts each time I required a redo. You must have read the agreement to say you could pick and choose what you wished to send and charge whatever you believed was fair. Our gap in communication is too great to move forward at this time. There could be more confusion and more misgivings. I can't afford the time or frustration. However, who knows what tomorrow brings and I still expect successful endeavors for both of us with the art you have thus provided for many limited editions. Also, there is book three and I will need art on that also. So hang in there and next time I will attempt to be more concise.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 


Jul, 7 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

When I defended my view, I did it only for the sake of art and good sense.

The project itself and the result are more important than any disagreements.

I know that I will be busy about a month later, and now there is time to work on your project.

If the problem in the price I can make a discount.

As for the other artists: you make the mistake of turning to them, because it will destroy the overall style and lower the level of art, especially inside one book. This may have a bad effect
on the overall success of the editions.

 

Thanks.

 

Ruslan

 

 

Jul, 7 Peeky

 

That maybe true but at least I will know what I am getting. I have asked no more of them with respect to the draft copies and I had asked of you.

 

Jul, 7 Ruslan Vigovsky


:)

 

 

Jul, 8 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

 

Peeky,

 

1) I can send you all the originals on paper, including A-3 size illustrations for $XXX including all the costs for a shipping. It will be securely packaged and sent by registered mail.
You offered on Apr, 16: "I will pay you shipping and $XXX for packaging and your trouble."

2) I would like clarity: will we continue to work on these 11 scenes? Just answer "yes" or "no".
If yes, then until August 15, a 20% discount will be, that is $XXX for the big drawing illustration.

3) Also I need to know when approximately will you order the prints. As you understand, this will have value with the signature of the author.

4) I would like to reiterate and it is important: the illustrations of one book must be created by one artist in the same style. It is very bad, if the level of another artist is low and it will be seen that one artist can draw and the other can not. Otherwise, the necessary rhythm will not be in the book edition.

Thanks,

Ruslan

 

Jul, 9 Peeky

 

If we work things out, I would expect all of the prints that are on my WizardWasOdd.com site where you and I interacted with your signature and either dated (preferred) or in chronological order. I do not want you picking and choosing. You don't seem to understand that your progression from simple and silly (recall your first scarecrow drawings) to fine art shows your true talent. So I am looking for ALL

I have all eleven scenes written out now. But how can you complete them by Aug 15? Also, I am not getting billed for each and every change and work progresses quickly. Perhaps they do not have the busy schedule or extensive client base that you have, but it is nice getting one bill and not being billed for each change.

I have not decided to use the art of the other artists as I am still refining some scenes, but I like what I see thus far and this project must come to an end as I would like to start Kickstarter in Sept. So I can't commit to using you exclusively. However, if...if, I use another artist for some of the images, I shall commit to providing a very clear distinction between them.

I will order the prints a month after my Kickstarter program ends and Kickstarter will start as soon as I get most of the art.

Also the other artists have agreed to allow our communications as a blog - like the one we struggled with. I do not show any dollars - which when all of this becomes famous will not restrict your earning potential.

If these terms are acceptable, I will bullet point these - which will include the delivery of drafts.

 

thx - Peeky

 

 

Jul, 9 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

Some images and illustrations you like more, some I like more. I do not see "progression" in this.
Everything that I have done is an art.

You can see some of my new art works on my site:
http://www.ruslan-vigovsky.com.ua

 

I attached some publications about my art.

Since 1991, I take part in the international exhibitions and competitions. My art works and articles about my work are published in various magazines, exhibitions catalogs, books, and encyclopedias.
In the attachment, you can read an article written about me by the art critic who teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts.

I will try to complete the scenes by August 15, but it depends not only on me. It would be good if you will give a clear description of what you want to see in the illustration, this would greatly reduce the time spent working on the scenes.

 

Thanks.

Ruslan

 


Jul, 10 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

What have you decided? Will we work on the scenes or not?

Now I have the opportunity to concentrate on illustrations and make good art works.

 

Ruslan

 

Jul, 11 Peeky

 

If you agree to these terms as follows, as did the other artists, and hold that price for ten scenes. Then I will provide you with the scenes no later than tomorrow. Maybe today. Also how much to create a character? I can look what you have been charging if you forgot.

Other Terms and Conditions.

* I am to own unconditionally all drafts and final scenes outright, free and clear, once you are paid.
* Each final scene will need to be provided in the following formats, jpeg, tif, and pdf and with a preferred density of 300 dpi or with sufficient pixels (where applicable) to print a pristine image of 24 x 30 inches.
* Furthermore, I require that you print each scene revision no smaller than A4 or 8.5 X 11", number it, enter its creation date, and initial/sign it
* In addition, to your fee for creating each scene, I will pay $XXX to cover your cost of printing and first class mailing of all revisions, be it one or ten revisions for each completed scene which need not be printed on archival paper, but shall be signed, dated.
* You will get credit for your art on my website, WizardWasOdd.com or Oziian.com (Wizard Was Odd Squad) and in any and all digital and printed books. You may write your own bio for Oziian.com and include whatever art you might have created before working with me that you believe might help your career or promote your talents. I reserve the right to edit and restrict the amount of downloads and any art that might be deemed risque or inappropriate for children
* You understand and agree that I reserve the right to work with multiple artists.
* You agree to provide limited edition signed, numbered prints in the same size, archival materials, and prices as we agreed upon with the first pieces of art.
* To increase my social media presence in the promotion of my Kickstarter platform, I intend to use our Guru interaction as it pertains to the development and finalization of characters and scenes. I any fees requested, agreed upon, or paid. This exposure will likely present you with opportunities from others and will allow you to charge accordingly. Nor will I publish our cost of Giclee prints and your portion if separately stated for signing, numbering, and possibly stamping. Fees will show as $XXX.

* If you are unable to complete the next draft of an image within four days of the date that you estimate, you are to provide me with notice and an estimated completion date. If that is unacceptable to me, I will have the right to re-assign the art to another artist.
* If for any reason I am unsatisfied with a preliminary sketch, I reserve that right to cancel or reassign that image and will pay you one-quarter of what your final billing for that completed scene would have been.
* If I am satisfied with the preliminary, and unsatisfied with the final color scene, then I will pay half of what your final billing for that completed scene would have been. I am not permitted to use your rejected scenes as limited edition art or as images within the books. If I later do decide to do so, you will be paid the balance of your fees.
* You will be paid within ten business days of when I am billed by Guru (seldom if ever will you have to wait this long).
* You agree to oversee the printing, signing and numbering (possibly stamping) the limited edition prints within thirty (30) days of my request. You understand that the future demand for any limited edition prints come from Kickstarter Patrons from all over the world who have advanced funds to acquire these prints and therefore, you are indirectly working with and have a responsibility to provide the signed art agreed upon to what could be hundreds of international patrons of the arts.

 


Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 


Jul, 11 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Hi Peeky,

 

You decided to complicate the terms for me, but do not specify that you are required to provide a clear description of the scenes as I asked. This is my main condition. Please give me a clear brief description of what should be depicted in the illustrations.

The scene is performed on the basis of the approved sketch and if you want to change the composition in the final scene, this will be considered separately.

This price $XXX for the big pencil drawing is valid until August 15 for each scene as I suggested.
We agreed and I made earlier at $XXX for the big pencil drawing and sepia on the basis of the sketch and the color version was considered separately ($XXX). We must not destroy this found style.
I'll try to do 10 scenes before that date, but much will depend on you.

Since August 15 I will need to work on a big project and I will not be able to devote much time to your project. Now there is an opportunity to concentrate on this.

You suggest: "if I am unsatisfied with a preliminary sketch, I reserve that right to cancel or reassign that image and will pay you one quarter of what your final billing for that completed scene would have been."
That is it is $XXX. You did not mention the price for the sketch and revisions.
I suggest $XXX for a pencil sketch of the scene, including 2 revisions for free, and the following ones for $XXX per each.

I looked at the prices for the characters, they were different. To date creating a character will cost $XXX for a drawing, that includes 2 revisions for free, and the follow ones for $XXX per each and $XXX for the color version.
If you agree, please send the description.

As to the printing of all revisions on the scenes.
For the black and white prints on A-4 signed and dated revisions I would want:
from 1 to 5 - $XXX
from 5 to 10 - $XXX

Every publication of my texts ( my private messages) must be agreed with me. Publication of private correspondence without an agreement with the author is a rough violation of the law of Ukraine.
I want to remind you that you published our correspondence without asking my permission and this seriously violates my rights. I wrote that you earlier.

Concerning payment: to 10 working days as you write will be added 10 days in addition: Guru keeps money about a week after your payment (clear invoice) and Wire transfer also takes a week, that is I can receive the funds in 20 days. It would be good if you pay without taking a long pause, that is, as it was before. But if it is important for you, let it be so or let's limit to 5 days.
In addition, from every payment Guru takes fee 5.95%, Wire Transfer also takes an additional fee (about $XXX).
That is, if you pay $XXX, I get $XXX and then I pay taxes from this in Ukraine.

And one more thing. In most cases, I take 50% upfront.
You pay when the work is completed.

Please can you send what other artists have done for you?
Of course, you can reserve the right to work with multiple artists, but it's very bad for the style of the book. This is the worst thing for a printed publication. I forbid other artists to edit my works.
They can do something based on my works, but do not interfere into my artwork.
If you need to change something in my art work it must be done by me, not by anyone else. It will be better for the book. Otherwise, it will damage the edition.

 


Hope for your understanding.

 

Best regards, 

Ruslan

 

 

Jul, 11 Peeky

 

 

I agree that I need to be clear. You can add that to the terms. I strive not to be unfair.

Ok so I can change the sketch, but not the final scene. I agree to that or to pay extra.

So you are wanting $XXX plus $XXX for color? I no longer want sepia and b-w is the final sketch. What will that save me?

If you do not get done by Aug 15 then you will be too busy for me - ok I understand and thank you for explaining.

OK revisions.

I suggest $XXX for a pencil sketch of the scene, including 2 revisions for free, and the following ones for $XXX per each. (so this is for revisions I do not use and we move onto another scene, correct?)

OK to characters

I like your art and will not change it.

I always pay quick and have no reason not to.

On the blog - our communication - I paid you before to settle the score. Do not write anything you will not want printed. I do not think you ever have. This way we will not fight. Even when we discuss money, none of that shows. If you don’t want it printed do not write it.

I share some of the art if I am certain to use it....so far I do not have a completed piece that I am certain I will use. Once I do I will share.

Yes or no - do we work together or no?

 

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Jul, 11 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

 

Yes, the price $XXX plus $XXX for color.

Of course, if there are no more than two revisions, we move on further.

If you insist you should coordinate with me what you want to publish.
It is important for me!

 

Yes, we work together.


Ruslan

 

Jul, 12 Peeky

 

If there is stuff you do not want to be recorded then send it to me outside of guru. I am paying someone to create a blog from our conversations (and other artists) and they are not going to differentiate. I do not have time to micromanage that blog. Is that acceptable?


Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

Jul, 12 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

Okay, I'll combine. I will send some of the texts through the guru, the other part directly to your email.

I am waiting for the information on the scenes and characters. When will you send that?

 

 

Thanks.

Ruslan

 

Jul, 12 Peeky

 

I will start you off w something easy...since you have jumberello experience. see the attached. I need a different face on Jack...like a weathered face, a sailor might have. His body is fine if you want to use that.

Also - If and when I share other artist work with you, I want negative, corrective, or critical comments. If I share yours with them it is because we are using your "Jim" and "your Dorothy, Chip, scarecrow, etc."

I will send you more by tomorrow.




Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Jul, 12 Peeky

 

Send our normal communications through guru - questions about the scene, art, etc. I really want minimal going through another email. We hardly ever have much that is controversial anyway.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Jul, 12 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

The images of Jack you sent are horrible.
They are done by an amateur who can not draw and has never learned it. Body's shapes, plastic of the figure are wrong and ugly. The hair on his legs especially looks ugly. This can not be published. This is an extremely low level compared to what we did. There is nothing of value here. I'm genuinely surprised that you approved it. This can not be corrected, it is necessary to do another image of the character completely.

Concerning the scene. What is the moment of this scene exactly do you want to show?
How many and which characters will participate there and their location and interaction?

 

Thanks,

Ruslan

 

Jul, 12 Peeky

 

I have to take off now. I will get you that info tomorrow. I will send you another scene while I think about it. That is fine - do another jack

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

Jul, 12 Peeky

 

One is a physical description of Uncle Henry - the other is a scene where he and aunt em are unknowingly materialized into Oz.

I did not approve of Jack which is why you are doing it. It was a test of skill.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Jul, 13 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

I made the image of Jack. I think this corresponds to the description. I depicted him in the overalls and pilot's shoes. The pilot's silk scarf is wrapped around the neck ? ??? ?????????, not like a tie, how it was depicted in the image you sent me. This is a preliminary sketch on the basis of which a more detailed drawing will be made.

I'm waiting for the specific description of the scenes: the number of characters, how they interact, where they are located, their emotional state, etc. Regarding the jumberello. Do you want to show them so as I did before, like jellyfish?

 

Thanks,

 

Ruslan

 

 

Jul, 13 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Sorry for the bug in the sentence: "The pilot's silk scarf is wrapped around the neck and that's right, not like a tie, how it was depicted in the image you sent me."

 

Jul, 13 Peeky

 

Jack looks great. Proceed. Can you start on the other scenes I sent you? I will not have time to figure out the jumerello until maybe tomorrow. On the jumberello, they can be identical to the ones on the cover.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Jul, 13 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Glad you liked Jack. Okay, I will start on the detailed drawing.

As to the scene Pile 0f gizzards.
There are new characters that have not been done yet: Tee, Lucky, Aunt Em, Uncle Henry.

Probably first need to do them, and then work on the scene.

Correctly?

Then please send a detailed description of these characters.

 

 

Ruslan

 

 

Jul, 13 Peeky

 

Hey Ruslan, in the Uncle Henry scene - Just show Aunt Em and Uncle Henry and Dorothy. This couple is perfect and since they are long dead, they can’t complain about any likeness. This will be a good close up. I am attaching the same scene description file but this one has color hilite that I would like you to show as text. (One final with text and one without). I will work on the other jumberello and have it tomorrow for you.

[Inline image 1]


Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

Jul, 13 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

Please specify how many characters there are in the scene? Aunt Em and Uncle Henry and Dorothy as you say now or as described in the description: Dorothy, Jim, scarecrow, Toto, Chip Chopper, William the cow, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, locals and courtiers. Who are Tee and Lucky? I think need to work out Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, so that there is no misunderstanding. I can do that 2 characters for the price of one. Where exactly do they appear: on the ground or in the air?

Let me know about the environment: is it a forest or something else?

 

Ruslan

 

 

Jul, 14 Peeky

 

Uncle Henry and Aunt Em can be shown as if they are materializing on the ground next to Dorothy, and facing Dorothy. Aunt Em could be looking emotional, tearful, perhaps reaching out toward Dorothy because she has not seen Dorothy since she was taken by the tornado. it is up to you if you want to put the cow and the Scarecrow and all those other characters in there. the text alone is describing what he sees and the main part or the theme behind this image to me is the amusement described or depicted in the text. If you think it balances the scene to have the Scarecrow and some of the other characters in there with varied expressions, and a few other nondescript people please do so. I hope I answered your question. Whatever makes it look more balanced and interesting.

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!


Peeky

 

 

Jul, 14 Ruslan Vigovsky

 

Peeky,

 

I made a detailed drawing of Jack and a sketch of Aunt Em and Uncle Henry on the basis of the photo you sent yesterday. If everything is okay with Jack I will do a color image.

What about Tee, Lucky, locals and courtiers in the scene "The appearance of Uncle Henry"? Where does this scene take place: on the street, in a forest, on a glade or in another place?

Peeky,

 

I would like to work simultaneously on several characters and scenes.

 

Please answer the following questions about the Pile of gizzards scene:

1) Where does the picnic take place - forest, glade, street or other?

2) Courtiers and commoners. How do they look? Can you send a description
and examples? Need to make at least one courtier and one commoner for clarity. I can do these two characters for the price of one.

3) If the primary characters laughing at Toto are the servants, it is necessary to work out
at least one generalizing image.
Please include a description and examples.

4) Do you want to show a gizzard mountain or the moment when it collapsed?

5) In what state are Aunt Em Uncle Henry? Do they look as usual or as in a transparent

 

Thanks,

 

Ruslan

The picnic takes place outside in an open air-glade.

Peeky,

 

Images of courtiers that you sent from the 17th century. Does this correspond to the selected time in the book?

You have not reply regarding Tee and Lucky, or they should not be shown?

How about pencil drawings of Jack, uncle and aunt? If everything is OK, I can do them in color.

Jack is fine - I would like a closer facial resemblance to unc and aunt but the rest of them is fine

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!

Can you do this scene in a courtyard with parts of the castle in the background? I will send you an image of Tee by tomorrow.

You do not need to show Tee and Lucky. The costumes are fine.

I will send you a description of Tee no later than tomorrow, for now - here is the outfit you can tailor him in. If you want to wait, you can add him to the scene.

You did not say that you want a resemblance. Then I will make their portraits and will send them tomorrow.

There is some contradiction here. You say that not need to show Tee and Lucky, and then that you will send a description. Probably this image will need for another scene.
Okay, I am waiting for the description and then will create this new character.

A courtier, tall and splendidly dressed, in passing by, chimed in.
“Allow me to introduce myself,” and, with a bow, he said “Milady…and gentlemen, I am Tee
After the courtier took his leave, Dorothy said, “What a beautiful young man. I have never seen a person of such color.”
“That’s for sure,” Jim chimed in. “He was different…not black, nor white, nor brown, nor beautiful.”
“He was a mix of those colors, Jim, but closer to bronze, copper, and dark chocolate milk…all stirred in the same pot.

Peeky,

 

I made faces of the uncle and aunt more similar to the photo. I changed the face of the aunt a little because she looks strange in the photo and removed their glasses for the clarity of the images.

Also I made an image of Tee.

Tomorrow I will send the colored characters.

I started working on the composition of the scene.

You are very talented Ruslan, Uncle Henry is perfect. Aunt Em is a very fine drawing, but...the point in using the picture that I sent you is because she does look silly and strange and odd. Ruslan, this is the whole of the Wizard Was Odd - everything is silly, odd, strange...please use the face in the picture. the rest of her body is perfect.

In fact - save that image - if you still have time come mid-August, I have another character that you can use this face for.

Check out the description of Tee - he is a blend of bronze and chocolate. Please make his skin darker. Other than that, he is fine.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!

Peeky,

 

I made Jack and Tee in color. Hope you will like them.

Regarding Aunt.
I tried to be closer the proposed image, but the reference is very
blurry and the glasses very distort the facial features. I removed the glasses.
Will be any requests on the color of clothes for aunt and uncle?

 

Thanks,

 

Ruslan

The Characters are fine. When you show Jack in the scene if the detail shows feet and hands, they need to be bare (part of the story).

I am also attaching a second gorge scene...let me know your thoughts on this. Could you incorporate the pilots singing into the existing scene? If so, this image would have some text and then a version without it.

Thank you.

Work on the characters:
Glad everything is okay with the characters. I made the sketch and drawing, and then a color version of Jack. You did not say that need to show him with bare feet and hands earlier. Okay, I will do that in the scene.

Tomorrow I'll send aunt and uncle in color.

Scene in gorge.
I think no need to do this scene with a lot of characters.
I can draw a gorge, Toto in the foreground and in the distance a moving river of jumberello at the sky and a beautiful iridescent background, a glow. Just a very beautiful picture is not over-saturated with characters, which is transmitting an emotional state got from music. It will look unusual.

Sounds good - don’t forget the stars and milky way! You can throw in a meteor if you like. You did a fine job on the jumberello cover - I am sure it will look great.

Peeky,

 

I made a color image of Aunt and Uncle. Also I improved something in the Tee image.
Please take this version.

I would like to submit an invoice for the work done on the characters, as we agreed: $XXX for black and white image and $XXX for color. Aunt and Uncle with discount.

Glad you liked my conception on the gorge scene. I will work on sketches to three scenes at the same time.

 

 

Thanks,
