I'm not dead..(hurrah!) ...just mired in school-related business.
Something I whipped up this evening for the infamous Jagermeister.


Larger, for fun little things like buttons..
Edit: Pic turned out wonky :(
By the way, if any of you experienced digital arrtists out there have tips for making backgrounds (and for setting images on backgrounds - I've given it a shot but without enormous success), or would ever want to collaborate in helping with backgrounds...do drop a line. :) Any advice, really, would be greatly appreciated. For instance, I tossed around the idea of doing a bar/pub-type setting for this sketch, but couldn't extract the image without some remaining spots into which the background would bleed. Also, the whole thing just looked a bit busy. :(


And a peek at the impending/incoming (Swordmaster, you've been doodled all over my school notes in preparation. :P Seriously. I usually sketch a dozen versions and their variations before I settle on one I like best).

Avatar version, which is dinky but I've tested it out...shouldn't require excessive squinting.
Apologies for taking so long! Let's just say that you gave me an excellent reason to finally work on male anatomy.


And just since so many people seem to think it obligatory, don't bother wishing me a happy birthday. :D I had a great one!

I have Saadskellie's to finish (in the works), then another. Afterwards I'll be opening up shop again for a few more orders - if you'd like to be notified a day in advance, send me a PM.

Aye, paper's awesome! I have friends who do some incredible digital art, though...I'm all envy. This noob's still learning the ropes, and slowly.

Saadskellie's, complete with squirrel. I know most urban squirrels nowadays are grey; hope you don't mind that I gave a little shoutout to the disappearing red.

Very beautiful work! i love it! I thought most urban squirrels were grey too until i moved to Canada and found out that over here they are mostly black. There are a few red squirrels here too, but they like to hide!

Thanks again!

At last! The somewhat long-awaited:

I'm reopening my queue for ten more orders. It should be pretty obvious why I'm keeping these to a limit - not only am I generally kept on my toes by schoolwork, but it takes me a while to brainstorm for and work on each one. If I allowed the queue to get unmanageably long, I'd lose steam - and fast. This way there's at least an end in sight. ;)
Unfortunately, I discovered during the first round that I can't help but spend a lot of time on every avatar - a lot more time than I'd originally intended. This being the case, (and with the encouragement of certain kind souls), I'm raising the price substantially.
Comparatively, I think it's reasonable - and while it's admittedly a lotta poe, it's also the surest way of your securing my detailed attention.

ORDERS, Round II.

Price: 80K on Viridian or the equivalent in dubs on any ocean.
(Just think of it as a very pretty forum starfish.)
  • Please specify as many character details as possible - included are facial expression, clothing, pose, props, familiars, etc. The more you give me to work with, the more interesting the turnout.
  • Let me know beforehand whether or not you want your name included.
  • Avatar size will be according to the forum limit of 150x150 or smaller, though larger originals may be provided.
  • Orders in the queue will be tackled in order of payment received.



Hope I didn't miss anything.
In the meantime, I'm adding the finishing touches to a secret order, and I touched up Saadskellie's since the background was bugging me. Here's the revised version.

And larger .
As a refresher, here are the avatars I've finished to-date. I'll add the w.i.p. to this in a bit.

Yeah, that's the face I'd make too. :) Sadly enough, though, there are retired artists on this forum whose avatars I'd pay just about anything for...
Oh, and I might be giving away an avatar or two in the future for flag-sponsored forum events. Just as a head's up.

I literally was staying up last night waiting for you to post, then I got distracted by Atlantis. This morning I woke up thinking Oh no I hope I don't miss my chance!

Character Details: Right now my appearance is Grey Hair, Pale Skin, eyepatch, hook. I was thinking something a deep in thought expression, either looking at a map or globe, or holding a pencil, pouring over scrolls? I'm kinda our flag nerd and I like number crunching.

Clothing: Maybe a Pink and Navy apron like the one in this Portrait Anything Navy and Pink, really.

Name: include my nickname: Arrgy

Wheee I'm so excited! I don't know if I gave you too many ideas or not enough. I'll try to find you in game for payment asap!

Thanks!

Yay details:

Har!

These really shouldn't restrict you. I found it easier and more fun to create something other than draw on request. But of course you have your own thoughts. So:

I want me sticking out a tongue with my cat (white) on my head.
Hair: just like the style in the cartoon? and make it black XD
Eyes: brown
Skin:Yellow? Asian skin? haha
background: I would prefer no background pls

and Oh pls include my name: L'amour. Or my cats name: L'amour again lol

I think that's it

Altho you can totally ignore this (that's what I usually do) and create freely ^^

Have fun!

I'll send you a bit more detailed description of what I'm interested in shortly; in the meantime here is my gallery for starters. The idea I have in mind is kind of a surprise, so I'll send it to you in PM.

Thank you so much Groshawk. Keep up the awesome work.

Alright! Sorry for the wait, folks. Here's the last order from the old queue - ordered for Shirato by Guillotine (twas sekrit, it was - but it's now been delivered).



Bigger is pretty.

...and yes, that is a pirate in a samurai outfit. No, this is not historically accurate. Yes, I will probably share the same ring of hell as Tom Cruise, and yes, Burado Pitto will probably be there too [see Seven Years In Tibet].
But culture-clash aside, I like how it turned out! Credit where credit is due: Guillotine sent me Harsh Cry of the Heron coverart, which provided most of the inspiration.

Four spots left in the new batch, and I should probably warn that this will likely be my last. Ten orders is a lot, and I expect to be away from the Internet most of this summer. Organic farming > Pirating when it comes to food and lifestyle. So get in while you can (again, orders are not set in stone until paid for), and be assured that though it may be a wait, the limited queue means that I will get to each one in due time. I'll try to finish as many as I can before June.

NEW QUEUE:
1. Arrgaretha (paid)
2. Ardea (paid)
3. Sashamorning (paid)

4. Alethia
5. Lamour
6. Salmagundi
