Lightbulb Betta Model Volunteers!

Wasn't sure where to put this...

So here it goes.

I need volunteers. There is a very big possibility I may be actually selling betta art, instead of doing free commissions. This is a big deal, as it's the step in the door to a digital art career. It's also a step in the door towards a much bigger 'Artists for Conservation' project I have planned (which will focus on conservation awareness and funds in exchange for prints and canvases of fresh/salt water aquaria).

But to get started, I need 'models'. I can use my fish, definitely, but I'm sure customers would want to see more than what I have ( as well the option to request their own fish).

Here's the deal, you volunteer your fish as a model, and in return you'll get the initial digital copy of that art piece featuring your betta. The very first time someone buys that piece, you will receive a physical print of the image as thanks for allowing me to use your fish to sell art.

I have considered other routes, like googling images of betta or simply drawing lovely betta specimens from AquaBid, but felt that would be cheating the owners - especially breeders who've put a lot of time into breeding such beautiful fish. If I do AquaBid fish, it'll only be with the permission and reference to the Seller/Breeder's auction/sites.

Any ways...for those who are interested, please let me know. I am looking for males, females, sororities, flares, dances, the whole she-bang.

P.S. - For those who are already waiting on commissions from me, no worries - I have the sketches, they will get done.

Would you be okay if I put the one I've already done up for sale also? I wouldn't post each thing, as technically they're commissions for you originally. :)

I think flaring pics would be great tho! Such drama in our little guys ^^

Thank you so much! I really want to avoid getting myself into legal trouble about this >.< But paying royalties out to betta owners would make any profit I make pointless. Of course for popular models I could throw in something for the original owner every 15 or 20 buys? Iunno. Depends how things go, how popular it is.

My pictures plague the Betta picture thread (mostly) and both mine are plain (common looking) females but if you so choose.

I would send a digital copy of the piece to the owner, it doesn't cost you anything extra, and it would be a "thank you" for volunteering their fishies. Also, have a form for them to digitally sign, giving you permission to use their image, and then to sell the art.

That should be enough CMB for you.
