Bookmark Sample by JakeNova Bookmark Sample by JakeNova
A sample of one of the bookmarks I was thinking of making to sale. If I do, these bookmarks will be the first thing I've ever sold professionally XDD Besides my "talent" and procrastination skills on commissions lol

As you can see, this is what the front and back of one bookmark would look like. I won't show the back for other designs that I'll post, because it will look pretty much the same. It'll just have a different quote and a different character name depending on who's on the front :nod:

I won't be making these immediately, but once I get time and a little extra money put together, I'll be able to look into producing em and then putting them up for sale.

The best part? You can request a character to be put on a bookmark :D

Of course, this DOES have limitations. I will only draw characters that are either mine (SpiritSong, Lunar Crisis, etc.) or are from another anime or manga (Naruto, Bleach, etc.). These aren't commissions, after all, and most likely no one but you will want a bookmark with your own OC on it XDD;

So yeah, feel free to put in requests now ^^ I already have lots of good ideas for different ones. And I will, of course, also draw pairing bookmarks (NaruHina, SasuSaku, etc.)

Anyway, back to working on commissions. I've been wanting to do a pic like this of Chise stargazing for a long time, since it's a pun on her name (Chise = Little Star). The song obviously fits pretty well lol and in all actuality, Chise DOES like to stargaze quite a lot. She admires the universe and everything in it, and loves to learn more and more about it all.

As for prices on the bookmarks. I have no idea what bookmarks usually sell for really XD But it would have to be at least around 5-10 bucks, just because of the shipping and handling, and the cost of making them would entail. I'd be willing to do discounts on bundled packs of multiple bookmarks though, so consider that :3

What do you guys think? Would this be something you'd like to buy?

Examples of what I was thinking of doing bookmarks of:
-Naruto Characters
-Soul Eater Characters
-Pokemon RedAmber Characters
-SpiritSong Characters
-Lunar Crisis Characters
-RingTones Characters
-Kingdom Hearts and other Game characters

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

Naruto (c) Masashi Kishimoto

NSNN (c) Me :iconjakenova:

PS. Just so you know. As an added incentive I'm going to be signing each and every bookmark personally :) I can even write a little note on it if you'd like. So don't worry, I'm not just gonna sign it digitally and print off the same signature over and over XD

Cool! When are you planning to sell them?
Reply

JakeNova Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011  Student Digital Artist
mmm...well, as soon as I get enough money to make them XDD I also need to see how much it costs to make a single one, so that I can judge how much the price is going to have to be.

Serious though.. you've seen the webcam view of my bookshelf... It's chalk full of books. And what you see is only half of what's on them, and only about two thirds of what I own.

bookmarks tend to be more like... 1-2 bucks, tho a bit more if there's beads or other fancy things. you could probably get away with selling for 4-5 tho, to cover shipping and cuz they're signed (but if you make them small enough, they will fit in a regular envelope)
i'd like a Gaara one. and a Kid one. :D

lol well, I've never mailed much of anything, anwhere. Ever. So.... I had no idea XDD but I'm sure they'd fit in an envelope. I'll be sure to make them as cheap as possible, that's for sure. Heck, if I took them to a convention or something, I'd give em away for like a dollar XD

Since there seems to be quite a bit of interest in it, I'll look into making some once I get some spare money :nod:

lol well, the bookmarks aren't going to cost much at all. Especially since I think I can just send them in regular envelopes, which I don't think has any shipping charge on them. So I could sell them for like a couple bucks XD
