Commissioned Writing - Tornado Devestation
   Tornadoes are scary. They're absolutely horrible monstrosities of wind and power made real in a funnel of death and destruction. A lot of pop culture likes to paint tornado's as either harmless or even silly. Who can forget the Wizard of Oz and the scene with Dorothy in the farmhouse being whisked away to the magical land of Oz through the center of a tornado? Who here hasn't heard jokes about tornado's and their seemingly inability to bypass trailers and trailer parks without blowing them away across the entire state line. That's not to mention either how a lot of things, particularly cartoon fights, seem to revolve around a sort of tornado symbolism as a whirlwind of punches and kicks before someone ends up beaten up and dazed.
   Ask anyone who lives in the tornado alley of the United States though and they'll paint tornado's in an entirely different light. While Tornado's themselves never seemingly have the same sort of attention that hurricanes or monsoons s

All of my newest artwork! At the top for those wanting to simply quickly look. For the most part, it's a collection of finished personal projects, quick commissions, writing prompts, sketches, and all. Just to let everyone know what I've been doing lately.


Basic Sketch Commission
Essentially what you get with this commission is a basic sketched outline. It's nothing fancy, but it is done well. The linework is done predominately in pencil, with little to no shading (as that will cost extra). You get a clean outline with clean lines unless specified differently. You then will get the image sent to you (or even uploaded) in a large 900dpi .tiff, as well as a basic 300dpi jpg image. As the image itself is done traditionally, there is an option to have the drawing sent to your address. However, that will incur shipping costs that must be paid for. 
Inked / Strong Outline Commission
What you get with this commission is not only what you'd get in the basic outline commission, but also, the outline is done with Ink (or really hard pencil).  The ink that's done is basically black India ink done with various different inking pens, as well as inking nibs, as well as several different kind of basic ball point pens as well. Basic inking shading will be done as well, but only in specific places. As with the previous commission, you'll receive the image in 900dpi .tiff format, as well as a basic 300dpi jpg (or .png) and have the option to have it delivered to your mailing address. Though with mailing, shipping charges do apply. 
Outlined, and Shaded Commission.
Essentially what you get with this commission is the previous levels of commissions as before, but with shading done. The shading can either be simple, one-dimensional shading to denote surface, or texture, or source of lighting or can be done in a complex manner to give it weight and volume in the drawing itself. As with all art that's been commissioned you will get not only a clean outline but also the image sent to you at 900dpi in .tiff format, as well as a basic 300dpi jpg (or png) image. Also, since the image is done traditionally there is once more the option to have the drawing sent to your address via the mail. However, that will incur shipping costs that must be paid for. 


Wow. Over a week to draw this? That's not too bad, in all honesty. Especially if you're starting out in working out anatomy and the lik...

Cool, can still write critiques even though my Premium membership ends later today =P. lol anyways. Starting off I really like this. It'...

Here's where I place a bunch of critiques that I do. Personally, I love giving small critiques for artists who ask for help. I believe as practitioners of this craft, and for those who genuinely want to improve, it's the best way to connect with other artists.

Want a small critique? Toss me a note and I'll go critique whatever you want me to look at!

Want an in depth critique that's at least 3 paragraphs long? Let me know and we can set something up as well! I even offer critiques for donation points as well, so if you donated, let me know and I'll get to that critique ASAP.

It's no secret. I've been doing Freelance work for the last year. So far? Pretty good. In all honesty, I've been making some pretty decent money with it, and I'm only getting better at it as time goes on. 

But I've never actually monetized my art the same way as I monetized my writing. 


Well. I guess it use to be I saw them differently. I'm a pretty decent writer, and I'm getting better as time goes on. But for me, writing was a means to an end. As long as it was coherent, made sense, and flowed smoothly I didn't much care about revision. For a lot of the people who hire me, that's good enough. They just want someone who writes well, and who they can understand, and I want money. Proofreading and minor editing were all I did. So I'd write 1,000 words within half an hour, spend 10 minutes running it through proofreaders, slap it in a .rtf, send it in, get paid. Easy. 

With art, it was different. I agonized over every line placement. I worried about line width, whether the pose was good. I worried and stressed myself sick over perfection and every little minute detail. 

What changed recently?

I guess I just no longer see it that way. Sure. I love my art and I love making sure my artwork is perfect. Look at the contests I've been doing lately. Even when I don't win, or know I won't win against artists who are better at their craft than me I still go all in because I use it as an opportunity to work, and pour all my effort into improving it. I treat it like a job, where I evaluate the cost of the prize,and how many hours I should devote into it. If the prize is 500 DA points? I spend maybe 2-3 hours on it. 10,000 DA points? I'll pour an entire afternoon into it. Money is involved? I calculate it based on my skill level and how much I'm willing to work for it. 

Essentially I just try not to work 100 hours for a 1-hour profit. I pour my whole attention into it, though, making sure I achieve as much as I can in the little time I have. 1 hour for sketching. 1 hour for inking. 1 hour for shading as it's based. 3 hours equates to $20 for me. Which is still below minimum wage, but hey. Got to start somewhere?

Which is why I'm offering my art on my Freelance websites, and for the next week will be focusing entirely on retooling some basic things on my page to reflect pricing, and might even be hitting up the jobs section of Deviant Art, as well as retooling my Tumblr. As well as adding a secondary twitter page. 

Here's the link for anyone that's interested!…

REASE~!  I don't  ... know if you remember me, it was a few years ago (geez, time really flies when you get older ;.; ) We RPed a little bit off and on for like .. maybe a week before I fell off the face of the earth, and I tried to draw Rease for you... xD;  I haven't been on WoW since MoP but I'll admit after seeing the movie I am STRONGLY DEBATING whether or not to resubscribe for a bit ... >.>  

Can I possibly get a sketch commission from you? ;-;  Do you have time?

Also: It's super cool that you give the option to mail it.  Omg. <3
