Some of the highlights of commissions I did over the past month or two. I did about fifty but these are probably my favorites of the bunch.
On the plus side I only have a few left to send out and then I can focus back on doing personal pieces for awhile.
I haven’t posted in a few days so here’s some WIP sketches and a funny picture of my cat.
I was planning on sending out all commissions yesterday but then upon reviewing them I found a few I wanted to redo so I’m pretty much done with redos and will be sending them out soon. Afterwards I’ll be working on a few things and beginning school again oh man. Hopefully more art updates soon.
Commission piece I did in my stream tonight for http://frindlesart.tumblr.com/ Super fun as always!
[EDIT; Done now - thanks to all who stopped by!]
Streaming a commission for someone this evening. Gonna have the traditional & digital parts of the piece streamed oh man! Feel free to stop in and say hi. There’s some music so keep eyes on your speakers if it is loud.
Quick Last of Us sketch. I just felt like doodling Ellie haha! I gotta do a full illustration sometime though cause dang it was a fun game!
[EDIT] I also through in a few sketches too.
Sketches & snippets of things I am working on. You might see one of these pop up as finished sometimes though I’ll most likely move onto other things haha
Hey there, I’ll be streaming for a little bit - going to be finishing up some painting commissions before sending them all out in a huge batch! Some music will be playing so keep an eye on your speakers;
[EDIT - done now!]
Anonymous said: it seems like you dish out illustrations fairly quickly! How long does the usual illustration take you? Do you spend more time on the traditional process, on the coloring, or? --lovely work by the way, I'm a big fan!
I do indeed work very quickly - usually 2-3 hours maximum for a finished piece. The traditional process is much, much faster for me - I don’t think I ever have spent over an hour on the traditional portion but the digital process slows me down mostly because my tablet really hurts my fingers and I keep having to take breaks haha. Thanks so much that means a lot - hopefully I can create some really stellar pieces over this school break!
Well, I was going to stream yesterday/today but the main site I wanted to stream for it temporarily down so hopefully I can tomorrow. Anyway I just did a few celebration doodles for the end of this term.
First piece; “It Just Takes Time"
Second Piece; “Underneath"
Based on my two awesome songs I’ve found recently haha!
So I scanned some of the stuff from a book I’m making for one of my classes. I want to do more things like this - it’s a hardcover book with illustrations and photos based on songs. I used the transparent insert pages to list the songs and show some ideation and sketches. Had a bunch of fun with this thing even if some of the requirements felt a bit limiting.
