1. Hi there, Guest. How are you doing? Have you been well? I hope so.

    OK, with that out of the way, just a little bit of a reminder that regardless of what's going on over at the other site, please leave it there. Inter-forum drama is bad and if you bring that shit over here, you should feel bad.

    And while I'm at it, USE THE "REPORT" FUNCTION. Like the New York City Subway - if you see something, say something. Vigilantism only works in comic books and trust me, no one wants to see you in spandex.

    P.S. - ToroidalBoat is a party pooper.

    Back in 2015, I've ordered a commission from Chris when he still had Etsy.

    The story to this image is that I was on holiday to America because I caught wind of a special species of Pokémon that originated in Virginia and would like to meet one in person, Wild was the first to be open to talking with the foreigner. Erm... I can't quite make sense of Franziska's being there but since she's my favourite female character, I thought why not? I was interested in how Chris would draw her.
    Darren (my character) is in the background, hoping to get a chance to kidnap Wild for study of the strange species but his arch nemesis, Samantha the Hedgehog (me), is there and would defeat him if he got caught.

    I didn't post this publicly because people would be like, "OMG, why did you give Chris money? Don't give him money!" Bugger, I'm satisfied with my purchase because this is art from the infamous Chris Chan for me.
    Even though I've put the picture on my cupboard door, I take it down when I have visitors. I don't want to explain Chris to them. >_>

    Bonus info: I requested for Chris to have Wild eating his favourite food, turns out it's teriyaki chicken and rice.

    I'm a bit confused. Is this a commission you, Samachu, made or someone else?

    You gave Chris money.

    Never give Chris money.

    Look I've got no hate for giving Chris money so long as it's money for something,even if it's something I wouldn't pay for. I myself have derived much entertainment from Chris' "products", for lack of a better word, so I'd be a hypocrite to suggest they don't have value.

    My issue is people shouldn't give Chris money for nothing, which isn't the case here. I'm just genuinely impressed you got Chris to deliver on the commission. It seems like past a certain point Chris gave up all pretense of industry or responsibility.

    I find a couple of things interesting:
    • Even in a custom commission, Chris panders to his own tastes with the random anime girl inserted there.
    • Classic technique of shitty "stick figures" in background. Same way he used to draw shit in like 2008. No improvement whatsoever.
    • Looks like the paper is just soaked in marker ink, basically guaranteeing this thing you paid for will warp and degrade.
    • As per usual, that perspective is fucked. Seriously is it that damn hard to get a straightedge... wait it's Chris why am I even asking that question.
    • Has to sign/initial the work twice. Because of course. Also, does he really have to work two hearts into the signature? I'm sorry but Chris' weird pastiche of what he thinks femininity is just makes me bristle for reasons I can't quite put my finger on sometimes.
    I give Chris a little credit here: at least he's consistent. This does look like a page from the comic. But man is it lazy. I bet Chris made this in ten or fifteen minutes at most.

    Thanks for sharing it!

    Why is a Phoenix Wright character in the picture? Or am I just not paying attention and missed something-

    I like how he didn't even bother with the upper left.

    Though I never paid for a commission myself, one of my favorite times in Chris-watching was when everyone at Kiwi Farms was posting the work they got from Chris. It's always amusing to see how his autism filters these requests.

    That's Franziska Von Karma. I requested her for the pic, not Chris' inclusion.

    Even though it's laminated, it's already crinkled up. I don't know what type of lamination is used because it's nothing I've seen before.

    I didn't notice. He also has the authenticity certificate on the back so it's three times, ha ha.

    I was obsessing over Franziska at the time of commissioning.

    Could you post a picture of that authenticity certificate by chance?

    Okay I respect that. I'd would've done the same if I had the money to waste on Chris.

    Still congrats on getting something out of it!

    I bring nothing to the table about this, but I love how Chris doesn't bother to use a ruler for the piss tile flooring.

    It's nice to see an old throw back of CWC work thanks OP.
