I am now accepting commissions! If you're interested, hit me up with a Note or e-mail containing the following information:

1) References of your character and what clothing/armor/weapons they will wearing/using!

2) Brief personality description so I know whether to make your character look like a saucy, grinning trickster, a brooding loner, or the sassiest lady to ever sass the seven seas.

3) What expression/pose/angle/background do you want?

5) (Optional!) Any pictures of celebrities/game characters/anime characters/etc that I can use as reference to get an idea of what you want.

However, please note the following:
  • I will only begin the commission after receiving 100% of the payment. If for whatever reason, I am unable to complete the artwork for you, I will issue a full refund.
  • I will only accept payment through Paypal. I'm unfortunately unable to accept gil commissions at this time.
  • Elaborate details such as ornate jewelry, highly detailed clothing, complex poses/backgrounds will cause the cost to go up.
  • Once the painting is finished, you are allowed only 2 rounds of minor tweaks if something is not exactly to your liking.
  • If you want your portrait to be at a higher level of polish than what is shown in my example image, it will require more time and the cost will go up.


Portrait Sketch -- $15 USD
Portrait Painting -- $45 USD

Waist-Up Sketch -- $30 USD
Waist-Up Painting -- $90+ USD

Full Body Sketch -- $45 USD
Full Body Painting -- $135+ USD




1) Can I pay for a sketch now and pay the difference later to upgrade it into a painting?


2) Can I have two characters in one painting?

Yes. It just means you have to pay more or even double depending on what you have in mind.

3) What am I allowed to do with the art? Can I use it as my avatar and in my wiki?

I am 100% okay with you using the artwork you receive for nearly any personal, non-commercial reasons you have in mind whether it be for your wiki, a forum avatar, a forum signature, desktop wallpaper, etc. Giving me credit for the artwork is appreciated, but I can understand that it's not always possible in some cases (like a forum avatar).

The only surefire way to piss me off is if you:
A) You make money off the artwork or use it for some commercial purpose.
B) You claim you made it yourself.

Otherwise, almost everything goes. I actually feel really flattered when I see the pictures end up in people's wikis.

U say that u use charcoal pencils in grades like graphites (3b,6b etc ).. i can only find em in like light medium and dark ?

Try different brands of charcoal pencils. The ones I use have grades like graphite pencils. Back when I was a student, I used General's Charcoal Pencils, but only because they were pretty cheap and very easy to find - not because they were of particularly good quality.

ok well atm i have derwent charcoal pencils in 3 grades .. light,medium and dark.. but every store i've gone to its all the same. Can't find grades like in graphite pencils.. do u have a somewhere u cant buy them online ?
and do u use like a grid when u draw realistic to get the right proportions ?

You can probably buy the charcoal pencils off or a similar art store website. I remember also using Wolfe Carbon Pencils. They weren't really charcoal, but they sort of felt like it and worked really nicely.

My very first year at art school, I used a grid for one piece, but afterwards all my charcoal pieces were made from live models or still-lifes, so I couldn't use a grid anymore.

Thank you for offering, but I tend not to join groups because I'm not really active enough on DA, and it makes me feel sort of bad. ^^;
Bliood-Kira Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
