Check out egorarptor videos on youtube, this is one of his funny pokemon videos. Great youtube animator and voice actor, plus he reviews games with JonTron under the Game Grumps title.

Oh, I know all about Game Greps, I didn't realize this was from one of Ego's cartoons.

I thought the person was just pointing out which pokemon it was.

Someone at my college saw these and commissioned me to paint him two charmander zippo lighters.
Peen thinking of making a small business out of these things if the interest is high enough.

<- Pic of one that painted.

Go for it! Sell 'em on etsy, it's where i got a sweet Charmander hat once...
User avatar #27 to #7 - thatlonewolf (05/21/2013) [-]
what kind of lighter and paints did you use?
User avatar #32 to #27 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
Zippo Lighter, obviously just not the smooth chrome lighter like OPs image. Used a mix of acrylics available at the time. The orange was Tamiya Gloss acrylic but the yellow, red, black, green and white were Humbrol acrylic.

You can see in the image I posted the orange spray residue because it was my first time using an airbrush but found with when I added the gloss varnish layer and using an x-acto knife blade I could neaten it all out. I recommend trying to create a stencil to get at least the general body shape before attempting to paint one yourself.
User avatar #42 to #32 - thatlonewolf (05/21/2013) [-]
wouldn't it be easier to make the entire thing with pencil? or would you have too much stripes then?
i'm a modeller and i know the effects of airbrush are always better, but for small surfaces it can be difficult
User avatar #44 to #42 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
If hand painting then yeah sketch away. That was what I was originally going to do but it was just when got my airbrush and being me I wanted to try it out. I actually sketched the design out on paper first and made a copy of that so I could make a basic stencil from. I'm only a novice and the airbrush was intended for repainting my Zoid Models.
User avatar #54 to #7 - cjasper (05/21/2013) [-]
I would buy it
User avatar #57 to #7 - timmity (05/21/2013) [-]
remember not to paint on his tail flame ;)
User avatar #77 to #57 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
but, but when the lighter isn't lit he'll die. He needs a safety net!
User avatar #80 to #77 - timmity (05/21/2013) [-]
no, one of the points of the lighters is the flame is his tail flame o_o
User avatar #81 to #80 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
which it would be when it is lit.
User avatar #58 to #7 - mrfop (05/21/2013) [-]
I am interested, how much would they cost and where would you be able to ship to? (I live in England)
User avatar #75 to #58 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
see post #47
User avatar #96 to #75 - mrfop (05/22/2013) [-]
Okay now I'm really interested, how would I pay and how long would it take? I've run out of lighters D:
User avatar #97 to #96 - irishwolven (05/22/2013) [-]
Payment through Paypal. Takes 2-3 days for the lighter to get to me after purchasing. 2-3 hours painting varnishing etc. Will try and have it posted next day. enter number of days the post gets it to where you live.
User avatar #82 to #7 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
If anyone is serious about wanting their own charmander zippo lighter feel free to pm me or leave a message on my profile.
#102 to #7 - starryiris (02/14/2015) [-]
Are you still doing these? I live in Florida & would love to get this as a present. Also is the $13.50 out the door or is that in addition to the cost of the zippo lighter? I would need it within the week
User avatar #103 to #102 - irishwolven (02/15/2015) [-]
Sorry, not doing these anymore. Don't have the paint or time to do them since starting university. And even if I were It would take 3 days to order a lighter, a day or so to paint the lighter and shipping from UK to US takes about a week if it's first class.

User avatar #15 to #13 - Yojimbo ONLINE (05/21/2013) [-]

User avatar #17 to #15 - feffog (05/21/2013) [-]

lemee know how it goes
User avatar #18 to #17 - Yojimbo ONLINE (05/21/2013) [-]
What, do you think he's planning on opening a small store, "OP's Charmander Zippos"? No, he's going to just under the table sell them to classmates. Who the **** is going to stop him, the Pokemon Zippo Police?!
User avatar #38 to #18 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
My mind completely went to the Vegan Police from Scott Pilgrim after reading your post...even though I don't like Scott Pilgrim.[small][small]
User avatar #19 to #18 - feffog (05/21/2013) [-]

User avatar #20 to #19 - Yojimbo ONLINE (05/21/2013) [-]
That's probably the first smart thing you've said in this thread.
User avatar #21 to #20 - feffog (05/21/2013) [-]
it doesnt matter if its a small shop or not, its still illegal to do it, nobodies gunna jump on it unless he makes a mass profit but its STILL illegal
User avatar #35 to #21 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
Maybe I shouldn't have used the word "business" it was early morning when I wrote it and I couldn't think of a better word to describe it. I know there's some infringement with the whole thing anyway.

I can assume that no one would give a damn but normally I have to take whatever art commission I can get these days to earn anything since I have great difficulty in getting a job due to the lack of availability and my medical issues.
User avatar #24 to #21 - holeymoley (05/21/2013) [-]
no it's not
User avatar #93 to #24 - feffog (05/21/2013) [-]

Hi, are you still doing these? and if you are do you have a final cost + shipping to the UK?

User avatar #99 to #98 - irishwolven (06/03/2013) [-]
Yeah I'm still doing them. All together it'll cost £13.50p (£10 labour and product costs, £3.50p postage within and outside the UK)
#100 to #99 - Rascal (06/03/2013) [-]
Do you have skype/an email I can contact you on to talk about this?
User avatar #101 to #100 - irishwolven (06/03/2013) [-]
same as my user name here for skype
#40 to #7 - Rascal (05/21/2013) [-]
i can't post images with comments, im that new... but if i could, i'd put the one with the " SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY! "
#69 to #7 - Rascal (05/21/2013) [-]
A cyndaquil one would be pretty cool too
User avatar #76 to #69 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
A cyndaquil from the front view and back view would work well I think.
User avatar #45 to #7 - smokekusheveryday (05/21/2013) [-]
how much ? GIVE YOUR PRICE DAMMNIT TAKE MY MONEY!!1
User avatar #47 to #45 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
Price really depends on how much I can get the Zippo lighters for but price would range from £13.50 to £24.50 .
It gets pricey depending on where I get the lighters and I need to cover the cost of that as well as postage costs and a bit of profit for me.
#50 to #47 - smokekusheveryday (05/21/2013) [-]
Oh yea true didn't think that out but may i just say...people like ******* with zippo's and people like pokemon......you have found balance....... also you're ******* awesome a at painting Charmander you have earned my salute
User avatar #52 to #50 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
Well at the moment I know a seller on ebay selling these lighters still with free wicks and flints. for £4.99 so at the moment I can sell them for £13.50. And I already have enough paints to do a few more anyway before I need to buy more.
And I give a salute back fellow being.
User avatar #12 to #7 - arrogant (05/21/2013) [-]
Hmm, maybe no flames on the tail, as shown in the content? Aside from that, they are pro, and I'd probably buy one.
User avatar #33 to #12 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
Me and the commissioner were debating whether or not to put the flames on the tail at first but I suggested adding the tail flame so it doesn't look like an incomplete image when the Zippo lighter isn't in use. But if I do get commissioned for one again then it could always be tailored to with or without the flame and I don't mind shipping internationally.
(Original commissioner in the end could only pay for one, so I ended up selling the other one to someone in Australia.)
#14 to #7 - Rascal (05/21/2013) [-]
at least your charmander doesnt look like a failure...

User avatar #30 to #23 - pudingcade (05/21/2013) [-]
2-3 $ to get the lighter 4-5$ for paint and a lot of patience
User avatar #34 to #30 - thedutchs (05/21/2013) [-]
2-3 dollar for a Zippo lighter?

User avatar #37 to #23 - irishwolven (05/21/2013) [-]
I recall this particular one posted by OP was being sold for $30. I know at least another version to at least be sold at that much.

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces is so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!
