My Bio
𝗣𝗿𝗶𝗻𝘁𝘀 & 𝗙𝗶𝗹𝗲𝘀, 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀

I am open to commissions. Prices for my larger files for sale on this site are based on the size and quality of the file. They also have a CC-BY-NC-SA license with a request. I have some older, better quality prints of my historical warriors series available for sale to anyone who asks.

𝗜𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻/𝗜𝗻𝘀𝗽𝗶𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻

    I am one of the remaining earliest Elfwood members, working on uploading my gallery. I am inspired by people, (sur)realism, British, Oklahoman, Pacific NW USA nature; ancient (mediaeval, (neo)classical, renaissance) eras (Phidias, Polykleitos, Lysippos, Phidias, Scopas, Praxiteles, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonaratti, Rembrandt van Rijn, Pre-raphaelites,) impressionism/pointillism & expressionism, brandywine school (Howard Pyle, the Wyeths; ) symbolism & art nouveau (John Duncan, Ivan Bilibin; ) old Disney (Marc Davis & Glen Keane, ...,) Alfred Bestall and Hal Foster and their captionless comics Rupert (also symmetric) and Prince Valiant, respectively, various 1930s - '80s comics artists, Alan Lee; Howard David Johnson; Frank Frazetta; Boris Vallejo & Julie Bell; Larry Elmore; Jeff Easley; Fred Fields; Bros. Hildebrandt; Clyde Caldwell; Ken Kelly; Michael Whelan; Keith Parkinson; many other old school D&D artists, Rowena Morrill; Alex Ross; Cam Kennedy, Barry Windsor-Smith.
    My main art/literature/role-playing game characters are classic D&D-type elves: Darwin & Marian. Human characters, are: a knight (Conan/Arthur,) thief (Alaric/Tyran/Robert,) mystic (Elric/Talien/Richard,) druidess (Sonja/Guinevere), witch (Kira/Eleanor,) priestess (Valeria/Marian.) I have imagined different worlds for games, and sometimes the characters are similar, and sometimes different.

𝗕𝗶𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗮𝗽𝗵𝘆

    I was born vegan (total vegetarian.) My art is mathematical/scientific/philosophical/spiritual, realist/naturalist. I sign 'Chmelik' (the original Bohemian spelling.) I am also a musician, demoscener, mathematician/computer scientist who likes philosophy such as copyleft.
