HI WE ARE CALEFARE YOU GIVE US MONEY WE GIVE YOU ART

...Auugh, I mean- well, we're the artists who draw and stuff and we're hoping to publish a doujin later this year. We've already started on the first few pages and we're hoping to get it done in time for Cosfest (though that's looking increasingly unlikely so EoY is becoming the more likely deadline) though, well, you see-

Neither of us are working adults. And asking our parents something like 'HI MOM AND DAD CAN YOU GIVE US YOUR MONEY TO PRINT STUFF' in this kind of economic climate is a bit chancy, to put it mildly.

So we'd like to offer to work FOR YOU. And we'll draw anything short of smut (to clarify, highly suggestive scenes are okay by us, dicks and vaginas aren't, mostly because our anatomy skills aren't good enough and you certainly wouldn't want to see your favourite male character with a pencil for a penis, would you? would you.), so... hahaha, I'd best get to the prices.

Prices range from USD$5 for a simple sketch to USD$75 for three inked and toned manga pages.Collapse )

PAYMENT METHOD:

For people in Singapore:
We'll accept payment via Paypal, or if you'd like to meet us in person to pass us money, that can also be arranged. Preferably Sunday afternoons, at Takashimaya, since we both hang out there quite a bit.

For people not in Singapore:
We'll accept payment via Paypal, or if you'd like to BUY A TICKET AND FLY DOWN HERE TO MEET US AND GIVE US MONEY IN PERSON, YOU CAN DO THAT TOO.

We will only ask for your money when your request is completed.

OTHER NOTES:

If you'd like to request anything outside what's listed here, feel free too! We'll work out a price and try to keep it fair. Also, if you're unable to pay or afford the price, we might consider accepting other things instead of money, such as fic and art. However, this is a very big might- money is really our main concern right now.

FUCKING CONTESTS

I mean- this is for Seventh Sanctum's CROSS-GENRE CHARACTERS contest. Heat came up with the character concept, design, text and layout, Rock supplied all the wonderful art and a lot of much needed support. Total time taken was... about 4 hours on Heat's side, and around the same for Rock, I think.

4 hours from 10pm to 2am, I should add.

ANYWAY. The generated stuff first, and then the contest entry itself.

We wanted to do (read: Heat wanted to do) something steampunkish, so we went through the Fusion Class Generator using all the Steampunk + ??? settings until we found something that worked. There were a bunch of interesting possibilities, such as Clock Conjurer (can speed up and slow down time), Bomb Rocketeer (for sheer explosive badassery) and Anti-gravity Gunslinger (breaking the laws of physics for the best damn fight scenes ever). In the end, the fusion class we decided to use was the one that seemed the most fun to develop on- the Infernal Librarian (Steampunk + Horror).

We had a vague idea in place then for what we wanted to do, but then we had to generate his description. Using the General Person Generator, we clicked around for a bit before finally settling on:

This calm gentleman has round amber eyes. His luxurious, wavy hair the color of burnished iron is worn in a style that reminds you of a trailing ribbon. He has a graceful build. His skin is pale. His wardrobe is elegant, with a lot of black.

So far so good! Right now the character concept was starting to develop along- by this point we'd figured out most of what made up the 'Infernal' part of 'Infernal Librarian', but he still needed a name.

Or names.

Using the Vampire Name Generator was pretty much a given, the names had exactly the right feel for this sort of character. Initially we thought of having him being called Gabriel Black, but as the character concept developed, we realised that the actual, original Gabriel quite possibly existed and would have been known to this character, so we went for the slightly more sinister Aleister Gray instead. After a lot of dicking around with the Angel/Demon Name Generator, we also got the names Hashael and Hazaleron, which sounded similar enough to each other for our purposes.

That was pretty much about it as far as using the generators went. After all that, we started work on our character, refining the concept as we went along. The entry is under the cut, with some elaboration.Collapse )

Actually the original plan was that we'd just do a simple character refsheet.

I'm not quite sure what happened to that plan, but I can't say I'm displeased with how it turned out... but anyway, that's about it!

Edit: SDLKFJLAKF NO IT WASN'T- forgot to mention something. The absolutely amazing textures that heat used as the background for this thing (which were pretty much essential to getting the feel of it right) come from the equally amazing sanami276, who does fantastic things with paper and photoshop.

Edit 2: While the image is down (I HAVE NO IDEA WHY) you can see the image HERE though it's at a smaller size...

Edit 3: IMAGE IS BACK UP, and some minor edits have been made, mostly corrections to the text- the spelling of the words 'demonology', 'grimoire', 'happen' and 'certainly' have been corrected. The alignment of text in the final section has also been adjusted, and some of the words have been put in a new font. Apart from that, though, nothing's changed.

Edit 4: ...apparently we confused timezones (by forgetting that the US is behind and not ahead of us) and suddenly WE HAVE AN EXTRA DAY. Screw the above, I'm editing the last section now.

FIGHT TIME

it got- uh, a bit dramatic.Collapse )

Complete with sharpened silver tonfa stakes! Click on the picture for the actual sized version, which is a bit huge, but, well, haha...

Also, demon-Mukuro says hi. (:


He can sparkle too!

EDIT:

Now with bonus rape!Collapse )

Also, also, the both of us would like to announce that CALEFARE is now ACCEPTING COMMISSIONS. If you'd like to request something, do come on down! We'd love to do our best in meeting any request. ♥ Also, we've tried to keep prices fairly- well, fair, though if you've got any special requests or can't afford it, just take a look anyway or comment, I'm sure we can work something out (read: we might be inclined to do art for favours like writing us fic, drawing us things, or just expressing your very heartfelt thanks and pimping us out to people who are interested).

MONSTER MASH

I mean well- think of it this way. What if Sawada Tsunayoshi was the heir to an evil, generations long family? Only it's not mafia, it's vampires.

PRZ TO SEE REFERENCE IMGCollapse )

Of course, this naturally leads to Gokudera the puppy dog pet WEREWOLF, Ryohei the zombie (hey, he's already in dying will state ALL THE TIME in canon, so it's not that much of a stretch-), Yamamoto the "HAHA WHOA YOUR MAKEUP IS REALLY REALISTIC" idk what and Hibari, well...

...But come on. Admit it. Giotto's cloak practically screams IMMA SUCK YOUR BLOOD already.

Though since it's Reborn, the following is the most likely to happen, rather than anything else...


SO LIKE WE WERE SAYING ABOUT HIBARI- well, Tsunayoshi would be ridiculously glad to discover that surprise! There's one student in his school that isn't some kind of monster or undead! Instead, the head prefect and leader of the disciplinary council is, uh, an onmyouji/a priest/VAN FUCKING HELSING/we're not really sure...

Never mind, pictures work better to explain.Collapse )

See, see, it all makes much more sense now.

Hahaha, it's just an AU in progress or some random sketches of one- but it's something we think has a bit of potential. Things like Reborn's lessons on VAMPIRISM 101: HOW TO SEDUCE VIRGINS, Haru deciding that the proper method of behaviour for a vampire bride would be- well- uh- whatever it is in movies, Vampire vs Werewolf EPIC BATTLES, Mukuro the BODY POSSESSING DEMON and Chrome the human that's channelling him or something...

You could probably expect more random art from us on this one! But for now, we leave you with THE FIRST, AND ALWAYS THE BEST.Collapse )

COSFEST PROJECT


The basics of it go like this- CALEFARE'll be attempting to come up with a doujin of approximately 20-30 pages in time for this year's COSFEST. We hope to get a booth or something and sell this, among other things (read: bookmarks, cards, rubber stamps etc.). The only small glitches being we have no prior experience and thus don't really know how to do that. But it's okay! Hopefully! We hope!

...right, anyway.

The doujin is going to be a KHR one, and our motto is pretty much 'NO ONE IS EVER IC IN DOUJIN, THEREFORE WE WILL NOT EVEN TRY'.

So, here's what we'll be doing, basically.Collapse )

We promise to have a hefty overuse of sparkles, screentones and stars everywhere. And also rampant gaytimes, but this is a KHR doujin and rampant gaytimes are sort of a given.

Also, we plan to release the doujin online in its entirety after COSFEST. And we also plan on giving ~*~super special surprise~*~ limited edition bookmarks to people who buy from us. Trust us. The bookmarks will be worth the price alone.

So THE ACTUAL POINT OF THIS POST. Uh. Is sort of like this-

WE WANT TO MAKE A DOUJIN
WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PRINT IT
OR SHIP IT OVERSEAS
OR EVEN SHIP IT AROUND THE COUNTRY ALKFJSLDKF

ANY HELP WOULD BE NICE, THANK YOU.
ALSO, ANY MISCELLANEOUS BITS OF INFORMATION THAT A COUPLE OF NEWBS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DOUJIN-MAKING WOULD BE AWESOME.


Also, random opencanvas doodles featuring shotacon Chrome, pettanko Mukuro onee-sama and ➈Collapse )

EDIT: incidentally, the cup sizes for the various characters go like this-

Reborn > Gokudera > Tsuna > Hibari > Yamamoto + Ryohei (YES SORRY WE HAVEN'T DRAWN HER YET) > Mukuro.

It's okay if Mukuro's TOTALLY FLAT CHESTED, though, because the miles and miles of legs sort of make up for it.

OPEN CANVAS NETWORKING TIME. So- haha, it took some time to set it up and along the way we discovered a lot of interesting things like how the IP window under networking in Open Canvas won't let you copy and paste stuff in

('IT'S NOT WORKING'
'TRY AGAIN'
'IT'S STILL NOT WORKING'
'WHY NOT'
'I DON'T- oh it works now uhm.')

and that it's really really hard to use the tablet sometimes and having two people on one session produces an incredible amount of crack. It started out pretty mild, with just- really boring, pretty random things like

RE~BORN! RE~BORN! TASUKETE RE~BORN!Collapse )

And that was all pretty fun.

Then along came Byakuran Jesus, and the rest of the crack.Collapse )

Also, we really like Vocaloids. Quite a lot, in fact...

Well, the FIRST one at least is NORMAL or SORT OF MOSTLY NORMAL-Collapse )

Don't forget the POKEMON AU, either.Collapse )

But, yeah. Pokemon AU. It'd be full of things like:
'GO URI. I CHOOSE YOU.'
[ GROWLING NOISES GO HERE ]
'URI, USE SCRATCH.'
URI used SCRATCH on GOKUDERA HAYATO
'?? WHAT THE-'
It's SUPER EFFECTIVE!
'AAAAAAUGH GET OFF WHAT THE FUCK-'

And don't forget about Dr. Shamal, the Pokemon Professor who does not give pokemon or advice to anyone with a penis, thank you.

...Watch out, Nurse Joy?!

Also, Touhou Project doodles.Collapse )

WHAT IF KHR WENT SHOJO

(*≧▽≦)
...Or more simply put, what happened when we got really really bored. The idea came some time back, along with the urge to change everyone's gender which pretty much resulted in something like. Uhm.

See, if KHR was a shoujo manga, it'd probably be called something like 'My Mafia Life~!' with a few flowers and sparkles. It'd be all about Magical Mafia Girl Sawada Tsunayoshi-chan (whose parents were probably drunk and hoping for a boy when they named her) and her struggles to stay a nice, normal girl while working out her ~*~love life~*~! She'd transform into a kickass fighting self who uses LOVE BEAMS or something except there'd probably be even less plot, even more DILEMMA between-

THESE THREECollapse )

-and the first one would be all 'Hey, Tsu-chan, let's go out after my soccer match on Friday!' and totally reduce Tsuna to a pile of useless, the second would be all 'I'll be the perfect mafia husband for you! I'll wear suits and rings and be all manly and stuff!' which would be something like OH DEAR GOD DO NOT WANT and the third one would probably be introduced mid-way through the series and appear mysteriously and kiss her and be all 'hello, boss' and shota and cute

and we would read it

but mostly for the gay between Tsuna-chan and her passionately gay subordinate Goku-chan and for scenes that- I don't know, would probably be something like

...this.Collapse )

Anyway, after all that, it can't just end there, right? The other characters- Yamamoto would probably be this really really friendly girl who'd be all 'MAA, GOKUDERA, YOUR BREASTS GREW EVEN BIGGER OVER THE HOLIDAYS', Ryohei would be ridiculously hot (come on, he- she- works out every day), that sort of thing. It'd be fun! And gay! And MAGICAL.

Relevant sketches are relevant, I swear.Collapse )

ogodwe'renuts.

TEST POST

......((((*。_。)_
Let's hope this works out alright.

Right! Profile's up and running with appropriate credit and the layout seems to be working fine, too. This shit's on basic so that we don't have to worry about advertisements getting in the way of the layout, that's always really troublesome.

This way, we don't have to be concerned about that, since all that really matters is the content, I guess.

So. Haha.

Ought to get some art up soon, I think. That and- should we do introductions? I don't think that's really necessary. So, scans and stuff that are fandom related, KHR or otherwise, I guess they go here. That's pretty much about it.

C A L E F A R E serves as an art dump site or sort for ROCK and HEAT. That's pretty much all that's really relevant, too. Fandoms wise, we'll be throwing everything from Katekyo Hitman Reborn to The World Ends With You to Hetalia- heck, just about anything we're interested in is probably going to end up here. Don't expect much and maybe you'll be surprised, or something cheesy like that.
