I’m on a big traditional art kick, so this month’s commission sale is for ACEOs! Any medium(s), whatever you’d like that I can fit on these little 2.5” x 3.5” cards; and shipping is free! You keeping the original is included in the price.
For further info and a listing of available slots (as always, the monthly special is limited to 3 slots), go here!
Just one week left on this month’s special! Two slots are left up for grabs.
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.

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.
Anders, great defender against injustice to kittens everywhere.
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)

More truckin’ away! Made some good progress but still lots more to go.
The snake skins were great fun. I will be sad when they are over. Surprised the sage brush I did as a test (the one in the shadow) turned out as well as it did for not taking very long, I’ll see how applying that technique to the rest goes!
Right now, though, the legs are bugging me. There are so stiff and clunky! That’s what I get for using a ref of myself, I have stocky boring legs despite running like 17 miles a week. I think I need to reposition them slightly. Sadly this is the last you will see of this painting for the next few days, as I need to work on that ship painting this weekend.
Today was really great ahhh. I worked all day and then took a break and had a wonderful run and then came back and worked some more, and I’m feeling a lot better than I have all week.
I just need to know that I’ll get where I’m going eventually and that worrying does me no favors. I can still enjoy where I’m at. There’s a lot to be glad for, with the lack of pressure. Good things are waiting in the wings but now has a lot of simple beauty, too.
It’s so great to go to bed knowing I can get up tomorrow morning and do it all again.
