I'd like to do some ponies. I found some little card clippies with sleeves, so if you'd like a badge I'll do your character for $10 plus shipping.

I'm raising money for a horsie model! You can dig it, yeh?

Hi, I saw a post on the forums about how you're publishing your book with Infinity Publishing, a vanity publisher. I'm concerned about this for numerous reasons.

Respectable publishers will never, ever request you to pay anything. Secondly, reviews for Infinity Publishing state they're late (6-12 months) in delivering books or often don't deliver the books to the author. Many reviews written by authors state they're still waiting for their money from Infinity.

I urge you to do more research. You can get an agent and they can approach publishers. This can all be done for free. (If the agent says otherwise then this is a scam) Alternatively, you can publish with Amazon or other self-publishing sites also for free.

If you still want to publish with a vanity publisher then there are cheaper ones with a better reputation that don't steal from authors.

Definitely with Infinity having a 1-star review for BBB means its out. Dog Ear has 4 with some dubious complaints, and Book Baby looks fairly solid.
I appreciate the warning for sure!

I hadn't heard that about Infinity Publishing. I talked to them over the phone and the package they offered seemed pretty good; distribution was one of the perks so the book would be available through Amazon. But I'll look into it.

Mark of the Conifer was shopped to agents for about three years. I kind of got the same response over and over "You are a good writer but there is no market for this." Since the alternative was for the manuscript to wallow in obscurity, I decided to try Kickstarter. I'm well aware that a legit agent and publisher don't work the same way as vanity press.

Book Baby was the other publisher I was looking at, and they offered a similar package for just a few hundred more. Maybe I'll go with them instead if Infinity has this kind of reputation.

What? Could it be?

Someone's just rekindled my love for dinosaurs?!

(immediate watch)

But in all seriousness though, your tutorials have really inspired me to go back and start drawing my own archosaurs (though not at the current time). And for that I thank you. Keep up the good work.

BTW, have you heard of/played Monster Hunter? If so, would you ever consider drawing some of the dinosaur-based monsters from that game (Great Jaggi, Deviljho, Monoblos, etc.)?

I have heard of Monster Hunter. I wouldn't mind drawing those guys, but I gotta finish my illustration for my book!
