My friend Emily commissioned me this ACEO as a sort of memorium gift for a friend of hers whose budgie passed away recently. The budgie had a little Charizard toy it was fond of so she had the sweet suggestion of including a real Charizard friend for the bird.

Cael’s Artslam Days 47 - 50 - Original Posts Here and Here

Combining a couple posts from Artslam proper in order to cut down on spamming you all with studies! Basically, figure studies is the focus this week for the online class I’m taking, and I’ve been wanting to get back into that for a while so I’m kinda going all out with it.

A message worth hearing.

I echo adrhaze’s commentary.

Reblogging to my primary blog for once, ‘cause this is well worth watching. I needed to hear this again!

A few studies done in the last few days, focusing on materials and edges. Rocks and feathers, mostly! Still working on the middle one in between other stuff since it’s, uh, pretty complicated.


My latest piece for Booty Hunters of Volcanic Lightning Games! I was let loose to come up with an action scene illustration and this is the result.

hey art peers and friends

buttart:

hey have you ever reblogged one of those prompts that are like “send me asks about how i can improve, gimme critiques on anon!” and get an underwhelming amount of responses because ppl are still too soft-spoken/shy to come forward

how about this: if you want a critique on your work or even just some tips i could throw your way (constructively), send “critique me, please!” to my askbox any time. please specify if you’d like to keep it private.

if anyone else wants to try this by all means, i think part of building a good artistic community is learning to give thoughtful and specific criticism

(note: this is not and should never be considered an opportunity to tear down and humiliate your peers. if someone willingly comes to you (especially publicly) for help, they are placing a large amount of trust in you to behave with respect and a certain amount of compassion)
