So it was commissioned by Sigourney Weaver? We are out of luck.

Serious response:

If you have to ask, it's already too late. Just save up money and/or older Stouts for the aftermarket.

Hey duders get your popcorn popped and head over to the thread on Facebook about the commission. It is solid gold boys.

Also, let me hop on this soapbox real quick to say that I like commissions, I like that they are limited, and everything else - but the attitude of artists criticizing "fan art" and poo-pooing unlicensed fudge then turning around and doing it is cringy af.

Highlights include a xenodick measuring contest and an appearance from Kurtz himself.

If you are on MT search "Looks like a double dosage of KurtzHurtz" and it will pop up.

Same ol' pre-butthurt over not being involved in a big ZOMG commission. Same as it ever was.

Not in that group ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But I agree with you Ego about the double standard. That's unfortunate.

TRUFAN 1: RORY YOU GUYS COULD PRINT MORE. THIS COMMISSION IS INFLATING THE MARKET. UGH.

Rory: I don't run them I make the art. Sorry bud. Just the nature of the edition.

TRUFAN 2: I WOULD ALSO LIKE ONE IM THE BIGGEST ALIENS FAN

TRUFAN 1: NO I AM THE BIGGEST TRU FAN LOOK AT MY AUTOGRAPHS AND fudge.

TRUFAN 2: NO I AM I HAVE ALIENS TATTOO

Me: Subbed for drama. Chill dudes. Can't always get what you want. Sometimes having ISOs are fun.

Etc. etc.

The entitlement is such an alien concept to me. I just don't get taking that tact when trying to get into a commission or persuade an artist to "just make more."

Wow, that fb thread. The fan dick measuring contest is sandwiching the diatribe about run sizes being an attempt to create artificial scarcity to make prints seem better than they are. It's like...hyperreality.
