ARHDian's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hey everyone :3
I'm a Nanotechnology student, and I really like to draw in my free (and less free) time.
I'm currently active on Twitch for streaming, and I will post many of the finished works here for you guys to see ^^
I prefer to sketch and barely ever finished any of my drawings, simply because I'm lazy and get fed up with things to quickly, but I'm trying to change that by streaming and drawing completely digitally :3
I'll be drawing plenty of random characters, fanart, commissions, some comics, and whatever else comes my way. If you'd like to see me draw, come see me on twitch and join the fun!



Emote commission examples 3
More examples of emote commissions for some fellow tiwtch streamers!
I hope you like them ^^
(if you do, you can sub these wonderful people and use them on twitch ;D)
Peaceful times
So... I'm declaring this finished CURSE YOU!
I did this piece as a change of pace, and to challenge myself to draw a dragon. I tried drawing a dragon once before, but never finished it xP
I guess I should be happy with the fact that the dragon at least clearly looks like a dragon xD
It was really annoying to colour, and I never really managed to draw the claws properly I'm afarid... I also tried adding more scaled, but it just ended up looking shitty so i removed it again; this type of dragon has pretty smooth skin anyways... I am a dummy!
Well, I tried my best and it turned out a lot better than I expected tbh. I can just also still see so many things that are wrong with it xD
I know I'm b*thcing a lot right now, but I'm actually quite proud with the result :3

This is a picture featuring one of my DnD characters (the boy) and a Silver Dragon girl that travels with him. The boy is a Draconic Sorcerer, and has some Silver Dragon blood from somewhere in the bloodline.
I hope you like it >w<)/
Appreciation Day: Wolf-boy Loki for SgtFlowii
So, the last piece of this Appreciation Day was a chibi wolf-boy version of Loki.
I didnt go quite as well as I hoped... I couldnt really find a proper picture where i could nicely see the clothing, so it was a bit difficult, and when i tried to colour it it looked kinda terrible, so I removed it again Sweating a little...
I guess by this time I was kinda out of juice and my hand hurt quite a bit from the constant drawing xP
I'll draw a better one next time >///<)/
Appreciation Day: Maeve for Nano
Nano requested I'd draw her Maeve in her cat skin for this Appreciation Day.
I wanted to try a more fancy pose, but obviously made it pretty difficult for myself xD
I drew a similar pose sometime ago, so I thought it would be ok Sweating a little... 
I think it ended up quite well, but drawing the clothing properly was kinda hard.. I dunno what the back actually looks like, and i kinda drew her in such a way that a lot of the typical clothing details are kinda hidden now... <insert facepalm emote here>
Still, I think it looks pretty cool for a quick sketch Love

Nano, thx a lot for all the support and the cheerfulness! Huggle!
I hope you like your Maeve :3

Elapsed time: 35 minutes
Appreciation Day: Phi for Xolf
Xolf asked me to draw Phi from a game called Virtue's Last Reward (and decided to after some pondering not to go with "sexy beholder", or "beautiful and bewitching Illithid" -.-).
A veeeeeery thin but smart girl apparently. I think it resembles her quite well Love
Thx for the support and all the fun Xolf!

Commission status:

Commission Types

The table below lists the different commission types and options, with prices and approximate time frames. The prices for normal characters and chibis are the same. The only exception is for Twitch Emotes (Info further below), which are always €15,- a piece. All commissions are digital, and the final product is thus a digital file.
You can find example pictures further below and the page.

Commission Table2 by ARHDian

* BG: simple:
a background with simple colours, gradients, patterns and simple shapes.

* BG: complex: anything that requires (placement of a character in) perspective, so real-world backgrounds.

** Extra’s Tax: this is a tax for including very complicated bit that will take a lot of extra time, like complex weapons/props, robotic limbs, elaborate magic circles or effects, extremely complex clothing (almost never), extremely complicated poses (almost never), …
This tax can be very situational;

  • I won’t tax you for a baseball bat, but a very elaborate sword might take more time to draw than the character itself, so that would be taxed.
  • I can easily sketch you a character with wings, but if it needs to become a line-art then it will take significantly more time because all the details need to be exactly right (or it will look like sh*t).
  • I will almost never tax clothing, but if you ask for something ridiculously detailed with a lot of complicated elements, I might have to tax it.
  • If you want a simple pet or mascot I might use the Extra’s Tax. However, if the pet is too detailed (like a dragon or something) it can also count as separate character.

I will only tax you if I’m sure it will take a ridiculous amount of extra time, and I will always tell you beforehand, so you can decide if you want to maybe do something different. Since this also depends on my personal skill level, I may have no trouble at all with some things, but a lot with others, and over time I may change what needs taxing ^^
(In practice, not that many things need taxing, so don’t be scared ;3)

All prices are per character; you can request more characters, but then you will simply have to pay per character. There is no discount for more characters, because drawing more characters in the same picture is actually way more difficult than drawing them separately.
To avoid any possible confusion: if you request an artwork with background, you only have to pay for that once, so never per character or anything like that.
However, the Extra’s Tax is per character that has something extra; if you have 3 characters and 2 of them have some extremely complicated prop, then you will pay the Extra’s Tax for both of those characters, but of course not also for the third one.

Emote Commissions

Twitch Emotes are a special category. They are €15,- a piece, and all these emotes can be used commercially as Twitch Emotes and can also be used on Discord. I'm also willing to make emotes for FFZ and BTTV.
Emotes take a lot of time, mostly because it is difficult to make them nice and visible with their small size. I keep the price for emotes very low; this is my way of supporting my fellow Twitch Affliates and Twitch Partners.

Example Commissions


A relatively finished looking sketch. (The last two examples are traditional media examples, due to lack of nice digital examples)

Important Info

Things I won't draw:

  •        Lewd/Pornographic images
  •        Gore/extreme violence
  •        Things that would make me uncomfortable drawing...

If you aren't sure, just ask me ;3

Process: from commission request to getting the artwork

  • How to request

    1. You can send me a private message on Discord, Twitch, or here on dA. I would prefer discussing things on Discord, since you can also easily show me pictures for reference.
      Explain to me what you would like me to draw, and if you have any references you can show me. If you can tell me something about the character that also helps (like personality etc), but you don't have to.
    2. I will tell you if I can draw your commission (I have the right to refuse), and I will tell you when I have time (and if there is a waiting list).
    3. I will asses what the commission would really cost (may be cheaper or more expensive than you thought, depending on the details), and sometimes I will give you advice on things I think might be nicer (which colouring style, poses, background, whatever...).
      If during the rough sketching phase you end up deciding you want something slightly different, the price can still change: you might want thigh-up instead of full-body, or add a background after all, etc.
    4. You decide if you want to really request the commission, or if maybe you'd rather not after all, or if you want to change your original idea (you discuss things with me until you're happy).
  • Workflow, payment and final artwork

    1. We work out when I work on your commission:
      I stream all my artwork on Twitch. I would prefer it if you can be present while I make your commission, because I think it usually gives the best results. If you are present while I draw, I can ask for your opion on things, and if I'm interpreting something wrong you can easily tell me.
      I can work on your drawing on whatever day suits you, but I may not always be able to change the time when I work on it.
      If you cannot be present, or don't want to be, I can also work on it without you, and send you the progress after each stream. Then you can comment on it and we can discuss how the artwork needs to develop.
    2. I will usually do several rough sketches.
      If you are happy with the idea of the sketch, we can officially move forward with completing the artwork: it will be difficult to make any big changes after this. Sometimes, you will like a sketch that is different from what you commissioned: If you prefer a composition with a character thigh-up instead of full-body for example, the commission may be cheaper.
    3. I will send you a PayPal invoice.
      After deciding on the final sketch I would like you to pay the invoice. After you have paid, I can move on to finish the artwork. Until you have paid I may work on other projects that require my time.
      Please note that refunds of digital art are not possible. However, if for whatever reason I think I cannot finish the artwork (for example long-term health issues), I will offer you a refund.
    4. I work on the artwork until it is done.
      Some pieces take more time than others, so I can't always tell you exactly when I will be done. I usually draw 3 hours per day, and an artwork doesn't usually take more than a week, and you should have it within the month, but please note that there is no hard deadline.
      I will not usually work an artwork longer than the maximum time listed in the table (way on top of the page). If you want me to do things with the drawing that will make it take significantly longer (sudden changes or lots of extra detail), you can extend the time, but I will charge you by the hour from then onward. This does not usually happen, but if it comes to this I will warn you beforehand. 
    5. I will export the picture, and send you a digital file of the image (I will give you a .png unless you need a different format). I will also upload the file to my social media for my portfolio, unless we have come to a different agreement beforehand.

Canvas Size

The standard canvas size is A4 in 300 or 600 dpi, either in landscape or in portrait mode. If you want a different canvas size, just tell me and it will usually not be an issue. Emotes are an exception and will always be made on a canvas of 112px by 112px, in accordance with the Twitch Emote guidelines.

Image Rights

All these prices are for commissions that are for personal use only, so not for commercial use (except Twitch Emotes). 
I have all the rights to the picture, and you don't have any copyright unless agreed upon otherwise. This also means you are not allowed to modify it (this includes cropping, adding elements, colouring and many more) or copy it in any way without my permission. 
I personally don't mind if you print out the picture once to hang it on your wall, and as long as you credit me and link back to my social media you are allowed to show of the artwork on your own social media.
For anything else, please discuss it with me first. (Don't be afraid to ask ;3)

If you already know you need a commercial license, I would appreciate it if you could discuss this beforehand, but you can in principle buy a license later. If you want something made that I cannot upload for my portfolio, you will obviously need to tell me before we start as well.

You got through the wall of text!
Time to get those commission vibes going >w<)/

Is request open
ARHDian Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Free requests are not open at the moment, but commissions are.
You can however come to the twitch channel and collect points by just viewing the stream and save up points for a sketch ^^
TheWolfBunny Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2018
Requests open~?
ARHDian Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Normal requests are not open.
Commisions are open though ^^'
TheWolfBunny Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2018
Point commissions?
ARHDian Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
sorta ^^
You automatically get points for viewing the stream (and several other things), and you can use the points to request a simple sketch, basically.
It's never going to be equivalent to a commission, but it's something ;p

Keep up the good work! :)

right back at you ;3
JohnnArtRequester Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2017
Do you take request? 
ARHDian Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Normally, yes, but requests are closed for a while; I've been swamped with requests lately, and I also still have to do my own projects, so I've had to decide to not take requests for a while T^T
I'll probably do some requests as a change of pace every once in a while; if you want, you can come by my Twitch stream and ask every once in while... ^^'
sorry... Tears
