Sign up, prices should be about the same as other commissions here, possibly a bit lower. We may try usps shipping for Domestic this time, it's a bit cheaper.

We haven't nailed down a start date but since we are benching Penny Dreadful for now, it should be very soon.

They are basing the quality on the artists past works and using the average price from the last commissions here at the forum. The more people on board the better price we all get.

I will stop this way before 50 prints. We all like it limited and we are using lady Lazarus printing, one of the most reputable places there is.

Statue forum posters tend to kick ass :)

It says in Frobay's second post that it should be the same or Less than previous commissions, so if you do some homework, you should have a rough idea how much it is

As to people reserving a poster that they have no idea what it will look like, if you have a favourite film character or film, you will buy virtually anything connected to that, and how is it any different to pre-ordering an album that you have not heard any music from? If you love the artist, you will buy the album! Although Apple have now screwed this over

Best guess based on past shipping I'd say approx. $25 to ship $5 for the tube.

Why is the shipping so high? $25 for shipping a print in a tube? I get prints shipped flat to me on a regular basis for cheaper rates than that. I honestly can't remember ever paying more than $12-$15 for prints shipped in a tube. It really shouldn't cost $25 to ship a print in a tube.

Hellboy
11-20-2015, 03:13 PM
The cost of a new tube is between $5-6. Average cost to ship outside the US is between $18 & $26 for a tube measuring 34"x4"x4" at 2.5lbs. The cost of materials like craft & tissue paper not even being factored in. Not sure where you're ordering your prints from but they're either local or they're cutting you a deal.

Hellboy
11-21-2015, 04:52 PM
Hey everyone.... I sent out PMs to everyone on our list a few weeks back as well as updated our thread informing everyone what it's going to take to move forward with this commission. Since then I've either heard or received payment from only 6 people on the list. As a result I have no idea who is actually interested in this project anymore despite the request to have your name added to the group.

So, if you haven't taken the time to pay, contacted me or posted here to let us know where you stand take the time to do so ASAP! In order for this to happen we need a solid number of firm commitments and we're way off from that as it currently sits. If nothing changes it will unfortunately result in this commission being canceled and those that have paid refunded.

Updated Commissioner List

If you don't see your name on this list you're not in the commission. The reserved spots are a combination of non forum members who are interested that have either paid or contacted me and a few multiple print purchases.

Anyone interested in being added to the list either post here or PM me for payment info. This is going to be getting pushed out past the holiday season due to a lack of response from those who had previously asked to be on the list.

I'd say we're roughly 8-10 away as less than 1/3 of those on the initial list actually followed through. The hope is more get on board after the holiday season.

Penny Dreadful will be done if the interest is still there once the artist is ready. You never really know if these things are going to pan out until it's time to collect payment. Lots of people show interest and even commit, then disappear unfortunately.

We are short a lot of people to make this happen. Vance wants to start mid February. If we can't get enough folks in on this by the end of January we can't go forward and we won't be doing Penny Dreadful.

We're going to miss out on an Amazing screen print.

Hellboy
01-16-2016, 01:20 AM
Yeah, it would be a shame if this commission didn't move forward but the fact of the matter is we're just not hitting the numbers we need to make it happen. By extension if this commission folds it will systematically kill the VK Penny Dreadful commission, any potential future commissions with VK and most likely would mark an end to any future Statue Forum commissions, which would be a shame.

VK is really doing some fine work and is criminally underrated. For some odd reason, that I just cannot fathom, he hasn't blown up yet. It truly is a head scratcher for me as I believe, as far as movie posters go, few are producing work on his level.

I received both his 'Legend' and 'ALIENS' prints this week and was blown away. Some of the best likenesses and composition I've seen in quite some time. I have no doubts if he were to tackle Escape From New York it would be the definitive print from that film. That's exactly how I feel about his ALIENS print which you can see below...

I love the fact that you guys have worked hard to bring us all some quality commissions from some quality artists. Speaking for myself though, Penny Dreadful and Escape from New York just aren't big enough draws for me. I, and possibly others, picked up the Gabz Escape from New York print that came out a year or so ago.

I sincerely hope that this doesnt end commissioned prints here at SF.

Hellboy
01-16-2016, 02:03 AM
Totally understandable lordrycon.

Having done 3 Marvel film based commission prints already we wanted to branch out and do something different. It seemed we had the interest to make EFNY happen and had even half those who posted they were in followed through FROBAY and myself were willing to personally make up any difference to push this forward.

If this marks an end to our Statue Forum private commissions I think it will be because we don't feel we'd have enough interest to produce screen prints of films outside the comic book realm, and speaking for myself I'm just not interested in doing any more of those.

There are tons of non comic book movies that I would love prints of it's just that these last two that have been suggested aren't on that list. Maybe do a thread asking for suggestions for what people on here do want and then from those suggestions do a poll to get the most popular?

I would jump on a Vance Kelly commission that I'm interested in also. Escape From New York is a cool movie but i would never hang it on my wall which is what really determines whether or not I want a print. I'm mostly interested in comic based properties but there are a few iconic movies out there that have been woefully ignored when it comes to screen prints. I would absolutely love a Bram Stoker's Dracula print.

Well, that's a ton of extra work and to be honest nothing I'd care to do again as we've gone that route before. You end up getting 40 or so people interested in the artist all with different ideas on what they'd like to see produced and then when all is said and done 1/3 of the people offering suggestions drop out once the film is chosen and you still come up short.

I would absolutely love a Bram Stoker's Dracula print.

I would love a Usual Suspects print.

Two great films but I have serious doubts either of them would be any different in terms of getting enough people on these boards to commit in order to produce.

That would be a huge help. As FROBAY mentioned we will make sure you get consecutive numbers if you do. We've got a few multiple print purchases, including myself and FRO. If we get close to our minimum the two of us will likely make up the difference to get this produced.

Not cartoony for sure. Vance told me he had something in mind and he had been wanting to do EFNY for a very long time. He is a big fan. I think whatever he comes up with will be great, just because he is big fan of the film. That's not to say we don't get any input, I think we let him roll with it and see the sketch he comes up with and then he take compliments...I mean suggestions :)

I personally would love to see it similar to the Aliens print he did, with various scenes everywhere. We definetly want a title and credits as this is a movie poster.

The low numbered edition size is very attractive but Vance would get a few artist proofs.

Hellboy
01-25-2016, 08:28 PM
So just to back up what FROBAY proposed... this is just that, a proposal.

Bottom line is we're trying to figure a way to make this work because with the amount we currently have committed it just isn't going to happen. So if his proposal of a higher price with a dramatically reduced ES is appealing please post you're interested. If we don't have enough to make it happen that way we're pulling the plug and I'll be issuing refunds to those that have paid already.

01-27-2016, 10:26 PM
So after FROBAY and I talked and after speaking with Vance we're officially taking the above proposal off the table. It was kind of a last ditch effort to try and save this commission but the high price/low edition size just wasn't feasible.

That being said we have decided to stick with the original plan and this project is moving forward as planned with the hopes we will attract some more interest as the commission progresses. FROBAY and myself along with a few other people buying extra prints are picking up the slack to make this happen.

Now the cool part, and hopefully this gets some people excited because speaking for myself, I'm stoked. Vance has already started working on this and we have our first sketch. Nothing is set in stone, but it gives you a rough idea of the direction we're headed with this commission. This sketch along with future updates will be posted on page 1 for easy viewing along with all the information need to join this commission. Please either post here or PM me if you're interested.

This isn't even done yet and it's already the best looking EFNY print to date, it's not even close. I'm a big fan of Ken Taylor and to a lesser degree Gabz and while both their efforts were good they're missing many of the important iconic elements present here.

I agree 100%

We will have the HCG logo at the bottom removed.

Very curious how the coloring will turn out on this one. I like the glow in the dark on the recent Davinci Dreams variant.

Not yet, he got sidetracked with getting some pieces together for his upcoming solo show. Hopefully in the next few weeks we will have a finished poster.

I thought I saw a preview of this one for his show? I guess that was something else.

I was looking for information from that Bond print tease. I wish he did a full movie Bond print. That best of Bond image is good though with the best Bond (Connery), best Bond car (DB5), and best Bond girl (Honey). It was very tempting. I just couldn't go along with the out of continuity image.

This one was a metallic beast. Love how the inks change color with lighting.

Really, really happy with how this one turned out. I know when we put this together EFNY wasn't really represented very well on the poster market, hence the reason for choosing Vance to put his spin on the cult classic. Fast forward to present day and the market is now flooded. Mostly due to it's 35th anniversary. Ah well, hindsight is 20/20. All that being said, and personal involvement/bias aside I still think this print captures the essence of the film better than any of the other offerings out there.
