Some vent art from earlier this week. Doing better now, but. . .yeah, had a rough few days there.

Still, I like how this sketch work came out. So posting it now.

Commission Guide

If you’re interested, email me at “ambrisart@gmail.com

 

Here’s a general purpose guide to how I price my commissions.

Understand that these are GUIDELINES, not hard rules and the price can go up or down based on several factors. I reserve the right to charge whatever I feel like for whatever reasons I feel like.

But some common factors include:

Things that might lower the price:

  • Simple Nudity
  • Commissioning a character I really like

Things that might raise the price:

  • Alternate edits of the same image like “clothes/underwear/nude” 
  • Complex armor/clothes
  • “Rush” commissions that I put ahead in the queue

Some notes for you:

  • NSFW doesn’t cost extra–but the complex poses usually found in NSFW does.
  • Commissioners are entitled to approvals on the sketch phase of their commissions. I will make an undefined but reasonable number of edits until approval on the sketch is made. After that, the number and nature of changes/fixes are limited by the complexity of the piece.

  • Commissioners are entitled to general updates on the progress on their commission at anytime.

  • At the time of this post (Summer 2018) I am generally OPEN for commissions at all times. This might change in the future, but hopefully I’ll just make a new post for that then.

  • If you want more examples of my art, check out my art-tumblr, or my Deviant Art

  • If you’ve read this much, I might as well throw a shameless Pateron plug your way. 

If you’re interested, email me at “ambrisart@gmail.com

Oh I god I just realized how much Really Old Stuff is still on display here. I gotta archive that soon.
Erika - Volley Ball

Just a Flat-Color I'll be using for something later.
 
Because Erika started out as just a pin-up character, it makes sense that most of the art of her is pin-up in nature, but she’s grown to be so much more than that, and yet I’ve failed to make art reflecting that.

Erika plays on her school’s Volley Ball team, and she takes it fairly seriously. She’s not sure if she wants to go pro or anything, but for the moment she’s good player and it’s a hobby she loves.

I just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know my current state of mind.

Many who’ve talked to me have probably heard me say that I’m stressed and overwhelmed. I’ve had a bad habit of generally not saying no to work, getting myself into more and more commissions. And honestly, I’ve needed to, just to pay rent and even buy dinner–all while still trying to finish my degree.

But this has gotten myself into a terrible crunch. Currently I have:

  • 19 commissions (a handful of which are about a year old)
  • 4 group art projects I’m current participating in
  • A NSFW comic I have already collected pre-orders for (and was due in last February)
  • Patreon content due every month
  • And a webcomic series I desperately want to start

The webcomic especially is something near and dear to my heart. I’ve had people asking me to post more of my OCs for it (like Erika). And lord knows that makes me so happy. In all the years I’ve been an artist, I’ve almost exclusively drawn commissions or other people’s original content or general fanart. I’ve barely drawn anything of my own original content for myself, and it’s frankly starting to cause me a great deal of depression. As an artist, I need that outlet. And yet, I just can’t justify the time to draw for that project with everything else weighing down on me.

Most of these are things that I need/want to finish this summer, before school starts again. I will likely have to take on more commission work just to make sure I don’t get evicted this summer too. Money is extra tight, as I have to support my family.

Fact is, I’m unbelievably stressed. But I’ve been doing what I can to not burn myself out and give myself a nervous break down. That has meant taking regular breaks and self-care; and I see a therapist for anxiety. So far so good, but that results in progress on getting past all this has sometimes has been slow.

I get people asking me for perfectly reasonable updates on their commission, when I often don’t have anything for them. I get messages about new work offers that I neglect to respond for days at a time, because I just don’t have the psychological energy to communicate some days. So I hope this message counts a broad update and explanation to everyone. I’m trying. I will get everything done, it just may not be done in fast or efficient ways. Please continue to be patient with me.

Thank you

–Ambris

Found your Adventuring is Magic image series, love it. But I wish it had a bit more characters to its roster, you don't even have any of the CMC or a few other fan favorite characters.

On another note, I think t would interesting to see Adventuring is Magic broken down into an RPG, preferably Tabletop, and maybe with a graphic novel to tell the canon story of that universe, it would be a good way to introduce the game lore.

I've actually been working on an RPG for a few years, it's to the point I feel its ready for the first round of playtesting, contact for more info on that.

I appreciate the input, but I stopped focusing on the Adventuring is Magic thing years ago (indeed, I wonder if some of the "fan favorites" you're mentioning even existed then)

Anyways, while I have some interest in restarting it, it's possible I'd prefer to focus on other, more original projects. But thank you for the interest!

I understand, sometimes things just fall by the wayside for whatever reason. Hope you find inspirations for the rebooted version of the project soon.

Ambris, I've been a huge fan of your art since I started drawing at about 12. You're like, a huge idol artist to me, and I hope you know that I love what you do!

I'm flattered! :D

Being any kind of inspiration for others to create is the highest compliment I can ever get. Looking over your gallery, I think you've got a lot of potential and are well on your way to developing as an artist. :D

I'll give you a follow-I look forward to seeing what you'll do. Feel free to message me anytime. :)

Ugh this is so good

it's so hard to find work that I could actually afford of people who've done birds.
