Soo, just a tip: If you ever contact an artist (or other professional of any field) to ask for an estimate on their work, and their returned quote is more than you can afford… please be so courteous as to actually email them back and politely decline, if you’re not interested in negotiating! Being declined or asked about potential ways to shift the budget is expected. But to never respond after someone has taken the time to put together an estimate, is rude. It puts the person in an awkward situation of limbo and can leave a hole in planning your overall management of projects.

Just a couple of lines is fine- that’s all it takes! But it is always appreciated, so long as the response is respectful and polite.

It will be a few months before I can show you the full thing of this, but for now: Look at these hands I had way too much fun painting!(In the mean time, you can like the facebook page or twitter for the Booty Hunters pirate adventure game this artwork is for! We have some great updates coming in the fall that it has been exciting to see in development!)

Overnight Prints has a big sale ending tomorrow, so I’m ordering up my postcards for Illuxcon! I’ve never done a print order before so I’m excited :}

I’m limiting it to stuff I’m really happy with, but it’s still a bit of a candy shop bulk bin feeling- ‘I’ll have this one, and this one, and this one…’

hyenadon replied to your post: I’ve been doing weekly life drawing la…

I always love figure studies because it’s art that looks like real people and because it’s not like…sexualized. It’s looking at the human body as a work of art and I love that.

Yeah, I think it really gives you a great appreciation for such things. You get really excited over like ‘oh what a cool different body type I get to draw today!’ and pleased when you get a model who does really interesting poses and whatnot, etc. Or at least that’s how I feel about it! I love getting to see the variety of shapes and types.

I’ve been doing weekly life drawing lately and have gotten more out of it than I expected- not only is the practice good, but I really look forward to going and it helps me feel more in spirit with other local artists and such. Here are a few of the recent results I’ve been more happy with! These are generally shorter poses, with the longest (30 min) on the far right.

Thanks to fimbry-rising for letting me play with their char to work on figuring out a character speedpaint style! I love the result, trying it out on other characters in the future should be interesting.

A recent commission for Blackwolf of her character Jiarra’s cave in the Himalayas. It’s nice working with characters I’ve handled in the past, so it was enjoyable to delve back in with her story![Portfolio] [Commissions]
