Mister Lucian Draws Things

da-at-ass asked: "Are you holding back on shipping the books until after the campaign ends? Because the day it ends, I get paid... and I could upgrade to hardcover. >_>"

I literally cannot ship until the funding ends because the point of the funding entirely was to give me the money to afford the print run at all!  So until the money is in my account from Indiegogo, I literally cannot afford to print anything.  So don’t worry - nothing is going to be shipped until October at the earliest, haha.

Don’t forget, dear readers: TELL ME via email (lupie dot stardust at gmail) what your choices of print/lamen/postcards are before the campaign ends! Then there won’t be any hold-ups in my getting you your stuff :)  Options are in the IGG Gallery.

12 DAYS UNTIL THE END OF THE CAMPAIGN, GUYS.
Stuff’s hotting up here.  I’ve ordered boxes.  We’re making badges (photos soon).  The lamens are cooking.  There’s going to be a giveaway of the test pages.  Are you excited?  Thought so.
(Don’t forget to buy a shipping perk if you’ve ordered a book, or a perk that includes a book!)
Anyway, this is Forneus.  He can teach you languages!  From underwater, I assume, as he is a sea monster.  Whlarblargbl.

haha yeah i’m definitely not gonna spend all my money on this book
what kind of a nerd would do that

The best kind. The kind that wants my eternal gratitude. The kind that wants me to touch their face softly, tears flowing freely from my eyes, as I whisper “thank you, gentle stranger” before dissolving into a cloud of a thousand tiny birds that together sing you an anthem of pleasure.

O my children, do I have an treate for you!
Because of my ongoing wrestling to make the colours of my illustrations come out right, I will be ordering hard proofs of a couple of the pages from the book.  They will be one-of-a-kind prints, never to be repeated anywhere ever again, as my usual prints are on different paper and quite probably with a different colour configuration.  SUPER RAREZ.  I don’t yet know which demons they will be (but chances are, Belial will be included because his colours are the ones that are the trickiest to get right).  Once I’ve printed them, I will observe their colours and have no further use for them.  What to do with them?  Why, give them away, of course!
They will be on 115gsm recycled off-white matte paper (just like the hardback book - the paperback is on slightly thinner paper). I will assign each print to the winners at random and will not reveal which demons have been chosen.  It is a FUN SURPRISE.  A DEMON SURPRISE.  What better surprise could there be!  None, that’s what.
So, gentlebeings of the jury, here is your chance to win one of these magical one-off art pieces!  There will be four of these pages, so four winners will be chosen.  I will ship anywhere in the world.
You ready for the rules?  Of course you are.  You were born ready.
REBLOG this post to enter. You can reblarb more than once!
You don’t have to be following me or back my Ars Goetia campaign, but if you did, that’d be cool of you, haha
Likes don’t count because they confuse me and the counting and everything goes to hell so don’t please
Closing date is Friday the 26th of September.  Winners will be chosen at random using MATHS.  Good luck!

theteratophile asked: "Hi! Are you taking commissions at the moment? I'd love to get a tattoo design from you (beautiful man-monster/wild-hunt-ish sort of thing)"

Hi there, I’m afraid I made an announcement a couple of months ago that I’m no longer taking commissions for the forseeable future.  I’m really sorry!  My reasons are that I just don’t have time to do them any more.  I’m clearing my queue and will continue to work my contract at Beastly Beverages, but other than that, I’m un-commissionable.  Sorry!

This is going to sound really arrogant but here goes.

I can’t believe I have to write this, but please don’t pester me for free art or “mates rates”.  This isn’t flattering.  I’m pleased that you like it enough to want to own it; but I already know that people like my stuff enough to want to own it.  What being pestered for free stuff, requests or “mates rates” tells me is that you don’t think my art is worth paying for.  You want it, sure, but you don’t think it’s worth anything.

I’m quite sure that every jobbing artist worries that their work isn’t worth paying for. They undersell themselves, they feel ashamed of asking for money, and we work in an environment where people don’t really know how much work artwork takes. So being bugged for free stuff, jokingly or not, just kinda… reinforces that whole mess.  Please don’t do it. ta.

thechinesemystic asked: "Hello Mr. Lucian, will late funders receive a copy of the essay previously sent out?"

Yes of course! I just hadn’t got around to sending it around to new funders yet! :’)

GUESS WHO’S A REGISTERED COPYRIGHT HOLDER :D
if you guess “lucian, who is going to be obnoxious about his book now and forever” thEN YOU GUESS RIGHT :D
So that means I can share the illustrations as seen in t’book now without fear of them being pinched because haha now that is literally illegal lol (not that anyone has ever stolen my art anyway). 
Here’s Amy. Amy appears in the form of “a flaming fire” before taking on human shape, so I drew him emerging, half-fire, because yeah a fire person, I could go for that. nice.

LOOK AT WHAT CAME IN THE POST!!

It’s the real actual proof copies! They’re absolutely gorgeous. A few modifications need to be made to the innards, but other than that, I’m happy with them :)

The hardback is the one with the six seals on the cover to the left, and the paperback is on the right with the lots of seals.

Gleeeeee :D

I misread that as “Arf Goetia” and now I’m imagining a series of drawings of the Goetia demons as puppies.

Also these are damn spiffy and I can’t wait to get mine!

But you’re right. That’s what it does say. All the drawings are dogs. I tricked you. It is just dogs. 72 dogs that I would like to own. I want 72 dogs.

(it is not just dogs, it is my nice book, you can pre-order through my embarrassingly successful IGG campaign HERE)
