WHERE TO FIND ME
What is the shortest/longest working time for your average commission?
-It's all circumstantial, colored sketches are probably my quickest commission of a full body character. Those generally take about 2-3 hours depending on detail/color. My 'Look at me' ref sheets can take a week or more. It's a lot of back and fourth between the client and I to make sure everything is going smoothly. That's not to say I don't keep in contact with all my clients, those just require a bit more attention.
What DO and DON'T you draw?
-I draw a LOT of things! I'm not all dragons, though I specialize in them. If you ask me, I will most likely say I can draw your animal/monster/alien creature! I have multiple examples on my 'Commission Prices' tab that shows this!
However I am admittedly not confident about my anthropomorphized artwork and humans are a heavy NO, as I don't feel comfortable taking payment for something I'm not confident in.
-Environments are another story in itself, I'm not comfortable or confident in background work like I used to be. If anything I don't enjoy it much. I focus heavily on skies, painting sunsets and night skies are my specialty. However I'm not going to say no to painting a snowscape, mountains, forests, etc. but if you ask me to draw a city or urban setting of any sort, it'll most likely be a no.
-I've had people ask me if I do NSFW work, and I do not. I am strictly SFW....but if someone were to pay me $1000 and never ever post it online I don't think I'd say no.
What Art Program do you use? Drawing tools?
-I use Clip Studio Paint. My tools vary based on what I'm doing in the process. I like to sketch with pencil brushes and I use a pen tool to ink. My shading is a mix of different brushes.
What is your estimated turn around time for Commissions?
-That is another question that's very circumstantial depending on the commission type that is ordered. Like I said above, my "Look at me" refs take about a week or two with lots of back and fourth between the client and I. I also work between 12 PM-5PM. I can generally get two commissions done on a good day, depending on what is ordered. Needless to say I will not take more than a week to get your commission done unless something happens outside of my control, and if that's the case I'll do my best to get in touch with my client to let them know.
What are your favourite things to draw?
-I love to draw dragons of course! I also enjoy drawing snarly expressions or just exaggerated expressions. Colored sketches are my favourite to do out of my commissions I offer.
