Default So.....Commissions?

So I know a few months ago Sharis said Ethan will not be doing commissions for some time. So, im not asking if he is I just want to know if there is a estimated time when he will be doing them again. No hurry, just want to know as I dont want to miss out. And also, when he does start accepting requests, will he post on here? Thank.

i believe he said he wasn't doing commission at all again only sketches at conventions and that is it.

Well I'll let you know when I get mine...which I paid for a year ago.


I wouldn't hold your breath on getting one.

Yeah, I totally understand that it will be a while but eventually he will accept them hopefully. Maybe a year or two when he get all caught up..

I would only say, be wary. I am not the only person waiting on Ethan. I haven't even heard from him in over two months, despite my many emails. At this rate he has essentially run off with my money.

I paid for it over well in advance of last years SDCC... so be forewarned.

That may be, but it's no excuse to not reply. If he had at least said something, I could rationalize it. But to give someone a bunch of money for something and it never gets delivered AND all communication ceases? C'mon.

I obviously like Ethan (or I wouldn't be here, nor gotten a sketch from him), but I'm done defending him. He used his fans like an ATM. I am still waiting to hear from him, and hopefully he'll be able to give me some explanation....but this has really soured me on him AND on artists in general. I now have to be wary and mistrustful. And that's NOT how I want to deal with the comic community. Hopefully this will all be resolved nicely....but as each day passes, I grow more doubtful...

Yeah, Ethan just emailed me...so perhaps he saw this. I really hate bringing it out in the public, but I had no choice. I'll keep you posted, hopefully this'll all work out fine.

Does that mean no convention sketches ever again or is that a different story?

From what I gathered from listening to Sharis, that's going to be a case-by-case basis depending on what his deadline commitments are at the time.

well, there goes my chance of getting a gl companion piece to the sinestro i got from EVS sometime soon.

But there is hope somewhere down the line as never means forever and no one can really go that far in time.
