AKA: Please help me find motivation for writing and kill my boredom by giving me all sorts of art things to do.

I've been doing these for a while, started by adding filters and borders to pictures for my own use in RP's, then more complex edits, then I started offering it to friends when they'd complain about 'finding a good faceclaim, but not in the right colors' and nowadays these same friends started coming to me with requests like 'make this a different color' or 'I don't like plain white backgrounds so fix this for me please'.
I like doing these, they're reminiscent of digital drawing just a lot more quick to do, so I thought why not open a shop where I could help more people out, and have more fun with it...

What I'll take as requests: Honestly, as long as it's not Character art ('cause there's a section for that) or writing requests (I've had my fair share of ghost-writing before, it is stressful!) the sky is the limit. I take anything. I'll give you a head's up if your request sound too far beyond my skill repertoire or just literally impossible...

What I'm used to doing are: Image edits (from simple color changes, backgrounds to even more complex ones such as altering/covering radically a part of it), Removing backgrounds (To when you need your image to be a transparent PNG), IC headers and making signatures.
For BBCode I stick to a style I call 'Minimalistic but pretty' meaning the code isn't suuuuper complex, but it looks nice. I also take mobile and theme compatibility as a priority when I code things, making 1/3 of my time spent on codes adapting it for tiny screens.

What programs do I use? For those curious I have: Paint Tool SAI, Paint.NET, Medibang Paint Pro, GIMP2, Photoscape, Inkscape and Photoshop CC to my disposition, plus a lot of online tools and mobile apps. I just think all of these have something they do better than the others, or they have more/different filter/text options.

Things I need to know:
  • What is the request? (Picture edit, make a signature, maybe try my hand at a banner, etc...)
  • The idea: Give me a basic description of what's in your mind and what it is for. If it's an edit tell me what you want changed, what color, etc...
  • The desired dimensions: Sometimes I can get a feel for these from what the request IS, sometimes I cannot. Just so there is no mistake, if it's a banner or a signature or something like that, please give me some pixel dimensions to work with.
  • Feeling of the product. This one is a bit harder to convey, but like, what am I supposed to feel when I look at the final product? This is helpful towards choosing fonts and colors when your basic idea is something more ample and vague (example: make a background, IC post header...)
  • Urgency of the request. I'm going to queue these with priority and complexity in mind on this very same post (or the next).
  • OPTIONAL: If your request asks for some text, already choose a font and a color for it. It's the type of thing that will help me a lot if you bring it figured out, but if not, it's okay.

If I feel like I need some more specific information for your request, I will make you more questions.

Things YOU need to know:
  • How long does it take? It depends, but there have been things that, from the moment I started them to its completion, have taken me 5 hours without any breaks. Last CS I coded took me an entire day of work non-stop.
  • Work ethic: I am an annoying perfectionist with these things. This means I won't be done with it until I've considered it passable and I will make you little progress reports if I feel like I need the requesters' input on something. (Even if you said something like 'I trust your job' and just let me do my thing, I can't help it)
  • When will you start? If you don't give me a date or say it's urgent, I will pick it up whenever I find free time for it, normally in-between roleplay responses. I'll let you know when I start working on your request!
  • 'All of your examples are Anime and illustrations, can you edit actual photos for me?' Yes, I can, I've actually done it before. Don't guarantee it will be as good as the rest of my edits but I'll certainly do my best with it.
  • IMPORTANT: This is a hobby and a motivation booster more than anything. I don't want it to get in the way of actual writing. It's supposed to aid it not replace it, please have that in mind and be patient. (I have a life too!)

Both. It should be a give and take sort of thing.

I tend to be more aggressive if I'm GMing or if it's a 1x1.
Favorite Genres
Give me fantasy. Modern, medieval, urban, whimsical, dark, anything goes! If magic and strange wonderland-esque adventures are involved, I'll most likely hop on that train! I'm also a huge sucker for adventuring and questing. Steampunk and post-apocalyptic RPs are cool too, and slice of life (if executed well enough) is also something I enjoy.

I try to be open to different genres but those are pretty much my favorites.
Genre You DON'T Like
Romance-centric stories, it's okay as a side dish but it can't be the main course.

Boop!
I've updated the OP with more recent examples and I'm now taking BBCode requests since I've gotten better acclimated to the differences in-between names and functions that they present on different websites u.u

To do list: Maybe make the OP look more inviting by throwing some code in there when I have the time...
