Thor a la Carte

Here’s a fun idea. Ever want to buy a sketch from your favorite creator, but just couldn’t make it to a con to hassle the shit out of him/her over the details of said sketch? Now you can nitpick famous artists from the comfort of your home! Steve Rude, brilliant dude, is selling sketches on Ebay. Nothing new about an artist plying his wares online, but what makes this cool is he’s showing the base drawing now and offering you options on how you’d like it to look. It’s like you’re right there with him to remind him that Wonder Woman’s panties are a deeper blue, just in case he forgets.

Here’s the initial auction.

And here’s your options for UPGRADING:
BLACK AND WHITE MARKER: (INCLUDED)
COLOR MARKER: +$100
INDIA INK: +$150
INDIA INK W/COLOR MARKER: +$250
INDIA INK W/WATERCOLOR +$500

Here’s an idea of the process as demonstrated by a separate auction Steve held.

Personally, I’d opt for the watercolors if I had the money. Steve is capable of some really beautiful work and he’s one of the few artists I’d be willing to lose rent money for. This is a cool type of auction because it probably shaves a couple bucks off the sketch price due to Steve picking the subject, but also allows for a commission level of customization. Also, some people are afraid to ask artists questions via email for fear of looking stupid or overstepping their bounds. Here, Steve lays out your options.
