Sketches (speed paintings):
Head shot: $45 - $90
Bust shot: $60 - $125
Full body: $95 - $150
NOTE: What is a speed painting?
Speed painting is a term for a simple painting style. It's an artistic technique where the artist only uses a short amount of time to finish the work. Speed painting is used to depict an idea by providing the viewer with the necessary textures and colors and compositional elements without going in and explicitly painting every one of them. It's like a sketch but done in painted style.
In short, a speed painting is a half done painting, it's how every painting starts but never gets fully polished to every last single details. My speed paintings sometimes are done a bit more than they should because I tend to get carried away and itchy to tweak some parts more and more, so some of them look very detailed and can pass as a finished painting (Lucky you!). For me, a speed paint

First of all, thank you to all of you that have purchased books 1 and 2, or if you've picked 'em up at libraries, had a look in bookstores etc. Thanks for your compliments and kind words (I read all the feedback you guys leave me here on DA and elsewhere). You are the reason that I have the opportunity to keep going with these books (seriously, those book sales numbers don't come from thin air!)
Book 1 focused on girls. Book 2 was advanced lessons in clothes, various bodytypes and ages. Book 3 will be focused on boys.
The difference of boy's anatomy/facial structure as compared to girls, lots men's fashions, and more examples on varying bodytypes and ages. I think this will be a really good book to round out the series.
The setup will closely follow book 1. The chapter titles will be the same, with anatomy and clo

Huwag rin kayo umasta na parang may utang ako sa inyo na dapat kong bayaran. Hindi niyo kelangan mag-padala ng napakaraming notes na nagsasabing "sori po" at pagkatapos ay magko-comment kayo na hindi ko tinanggap ang entry niyo dahil ayon sa inyo ay "pangit" ang gawa niyo. Hindi ako ganoong klaseng tao na hindi tumatanggap ng ayon sa inyo ay "pangit" na entry. Ang rules ay rules kaya hindi niyo dapat ikasama ng loob kung paalalahanan ko kayo ng tungkol sa mga yon bago ko tanggapin ang ipinapasa ninyo.
Tandaan niyo, kayo ang mga contestants, hindi ako!
Kung hindi pa mahaba-haba ang pasensya ko, baka patalsikin ko pa kayo sa group.. pero wag kayo mag-alala dahil hindi ko pa naman gagawin yon sa ngayon! Kapag sobrang napikon na talaga siguro ako, baka! Minsan naman, palawakin niyo naman ang isip niyo katulad ng ginagawa ko para sa inyo.

Well, initial art anyway. It's now in my editor's capable hands for edits and page layouts. The book will be out early September this year!
Thanks so much for all your suggestions and ideas. If you've got the first SF book, the chapters are pretty identical to book three. There's a pretty comprehensive anatomy section for male bodytypes and a lot more examples! I drew like, 4 pages worth of hands in various poses. I tried to get a pretty good mix of clothes, and in addition to backgrounds, the final chapter also has interaction with vehicles. Hopefully you guys will like it!
I will post art from the book soon...
And I'm going to do a bit of an art posting spree, as I've been holding on to some pieces that I haven't uploaded here.
If you'd like to see art as soon as I finish it, as well as WIPS, sketches, and up to date info on my sales, givea

FREELANCING TIPS: Good jobs and bad jobsThe world of freelance business is populated with all types of clients and artists. If you are a freelancer or a potential client, you will eventually start to recognize the early signs of good and bad job situations. There are some tips and notes below that may help you recognize these signs sooner and therefore improve your ability to connect successfully with good job partners. A client or artist will seldom display all of the good or bad signs described below. However, watching for the following list items may help you to assess a potential workmate as a good risk or a bad one BEFORE work begins. Similarly, if you strive to embody the positive characteristics listed below, they may help you to attract better clients/artists and engage in more successful and fulfilling partnerships.FREELANCING TIPS: Good jobs and bad jobs3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Hey guys, Kita-Angel here!
 If you would like to +fav this article, or bookmark it, click here for the NEWS ARTICLE! where you can directly +fav it, or just bookmark this page!
In this article, I actually had to do a LOT of research. I wanted to make sure that I covered a lot of different topics and not just things to make the characters LOOK different. I mean, they can look different but you also need to work on other details too, such as background, personality, goals/dreams, family, general bio...
I think I will split this into two parts, and since I have no time to make a proper tutorial, this will be part 1, an article full of usefull information i have thought of as a basis for character creation. From there, you can really elaborate the plan and guide yourself and work on other things to make this more detailed and personalized.
I will also do a second part much
