Now taking custom velvet painting commissions!

Now taking custom velvet painting commissions!

I am now taking commissions for custom black velvet paintings! As you can tell, I prefer to do sci-fi characters from movies and television, but I do not limit my work to just science fiction. I am open do doing portraits of family members, even your pets, if that is your choice. I am open to just about anything, but I reserve the right to refuse to do any painting for any reason.
