Commissions Closed

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 9, 2014, 8:36 AM


6/28 If you still wish for one, send me a note and I might consider. Thank you!

EDITED 6/26

Thanks to a miraculous, and random donation, I now have all of my money I need for this month and next month. I already had my rent set up for next month, but I needed my utilities. I won't go into details, but I cannot know how this happened but I am so thankful to however sent me the money I need for almost 2 months worth of utilities! I'm super grateful and I will do my best to pay your extreme kindess forward.

I might open sometime in July if I start running low on funds. The main reason I am closing is so that I can finish this batch and have all my time to focus on Naor Prologue! I have about a month and a half for 13 pages, so I will be doing my best. I'll be finishing the bigger orders I have and all the other things like trades and collabs, but the Prologue will need to be my main focus since it is due for printing in early to mid August.

As I said, I WILL be working on commissions, I will finish all sketch commissions before I dice into Naor. So if you want one, order before I get up on Sunday morning.


EDIT 6/16/2014

My bills are coming due in about a week and I need $100 still to be in a comfortable position. I got a lot of money from friends and family for my birthday, and that helped a ton. I still need help though, so I am opening 10 more slots. I have 2 more to do on my current list that I will do tonight. If I get any orders today, I'll do those tonight too!

Please see below for all payment information and a description of the artwork.

---

Original Post-

Hey there everyone! I ran into a bad spot and needed some work done on my car. Also one of my bills was suddenly higher due to a mistake in the system... and they still expect me to pay it. I also needed another visit to my doctor,... with no insurance, yay! So I'm out about 800$ total... all my savings. :c

So I'm opening up commissions, however only sketch commissions. I have two different kinds. My top priority is the Naor comic, which needs to be ready to print by August, 16 pages. So, I will work on these during breaks in addition to the other three full commissions I still have in progress.


Both are 5x7inches at 300 dpi RGBcolor = 1500px by 2100px

Both are 10$ (paypal) -Sorry, I need the money too soon to accept points, it takes 8 days to withdraw points and my bills are due sooner than that. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. 


 If you would prefer a different style, please let me know and we'll see what we can do. :D

Request  Kaseiko by Ahkward Request - Iscera by Ahkward  Aywell by Ahkward

Alright, sorry I'm late, but I'm official for getting a sketch (general) : D I'm still messing around with the scythe design but I'd like Antaos in his human form :3 sta.sh/01jqvlh8yy9c (he has a face and other hand of course, I just got frustrated haha)

I think I'll go with that design for now, but if you have any ideas for it, feel free to mess around. Could he be in some sort of fighting pose with it? Two-handed or one-handed, whatever's better for you. :3

:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Sure! I can manage that. I have a few ideas in mind for a fun pose. :D

Could you do an Okami ink style of a coyote near Devil's Backbone?  If you offer color for those that would be awesome, but if not it's ok.  Here's the sort of distance from the formation that I was thinking: 3.bp.blogspot.com/-foyqAALT9MM…
Could you put him in a hunting pose as well, like your example?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
I normally don't offer color, that takes a bunch of extra time. If you wanted it colored, I'd ask for 15 since it takes a good 30min-1hour to add color.

But yes, I could do all that.

It's not really stress, lucky for me. I live in a situation where I only have to pay for my car insurance, gas, and phone. And I've got that covered for quite some time. It's just more of trying to save up in order to move out, and then I lose my job, so I can't really touch the savings till I have the stability again. I really do want to commission you though, so I might be back as soon as I have a job. ouo

Everyone seems to be going digital now, I don't have much choice about waiting for traditional slots anymore (since there are none) XD I'll just have to find some good, sturdy, aged looking paper and print it out somewhere~

i opened a poll earlier and nobody wanted the traditional ones. ;-; So I opened digital ones. e_e I'm sooo much faster traditionally.
Reply
:iconstarlightangel-wolf:
StarlightAngel-Wolf Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
well my lack of activity on here caused me to miss that poll, woops~ ^^'
My vote is always on traditional because I love having the final piece in my hands and its fun to think that the artist chose that paper, tools, colors, took a blank sheet and physically created something beautiful on it.
Dunno how to explain the different feeling between traditional and digital but even when I do art I prefer the more hands on feel of pencil and paper. possibly more connected to it? 
Either way is still beautiful and you can experiment a lot more on digital.

No I get it, I'd rather be traditional, however too many people favor digital as far as their tastes...;-; Plus there are some benefits, especially for coloring.
