Hadrian - Commission for jonwassing
My commission for jonwassing. It's a concept art for his character, Hadrian. It was fun drawing this one. His face gave me a little trouble (he was based on Rodrigo Santoro, an actor I am not really familiar with), but all in all I really liked drawing this character. I hope we get to see what kind of personality he displays!

Plague Doctor - Commission for Zalezsky
So I tried my hand with drawing a plague doctor.  This one is a commission for zalezsky, who requested something related to the black plague, in order to incorporate it in a map, depicting the spread of the disease. I originally tried to draw a victim of the plague, but I could think of no composition that would work for the task: it would end up looking like a random zombie. Then I remembered the Plague doctors, with their morbid costumes. In any case, I hope you like this one, Zalezsky and that it fits in your final version of the map!

Skaven Priest - Commission for JurassicPark89
Right. Hope I don't get excommunicated for this one :P This is commission for my friend, JurassicPark89. He requested a concept art for a series of Byzantine-themed Rat-men miniatures, inspired by the Warhammer's Skaven faction.

Initially I thought this would be an easy task, but the peculiar anatomy of the Skaven proved quite difficult to mix with historical equipment created for humans. The helmets and headgear in particular gave me a lot of trouble, as most of them were of an oval, or onion shaped, not flat. Warping them to fit the Skaven would end up either looking weird, or no longer recognizable as Byzantine. In the end I settled for the Skaven Patriarch you see here. Hope you people like it.

P.S.: On another note, I played a little with simple basic backgrounds.

You may P.M. me or comment here for your commission! No need to rash things, so if you wish to take time to think about what you want, feel free to do so! Again thanks to all who participated! It was really encouraging to see such interest and I honestly hope I do a good work with the commissions of the winners! 

Take care! 
As I have explained in a recent status post, I have had the immense honor of being watched by 600 people, here in DA. For the occasion, I have asked for ideas for a special illustration. There have been a lot of suggestions, all of them pretty solid. So I decided to issue my very first art raffle! Hope I do this right:

Anyone willing, comment here. In three days, January 26, I will randomly choose 3 people in the comments, for whom I will draw a sketch. For their sketch, they may request any subject they choose.

Right! Again, I wish to thank all the wonderful people who followed me and appreciated my humble work! Now without further ado, let's get this thing going!



P.S: In general I am pretty lax and willing to approach most subjects, but just in case, I will hold onto the right to deny a commission's subject, if drawing it would go contrary to my moral convictions. This shouldn't come into play, but I just need to clear this out.

Hey friend, so I hear you and one of our more...mentally retarded "neighnbours" signed a questionable treaty. Whats you'r oppinion of that out of curiosity?

:iconnikosboukouvalas:
Well the pro-deal people said that the term "North Macedonia" would at least draw a clear distinction between our neighbors and Greek Macedonians and Ancient Macedonian history. I wanted to hope that would be true, as most already call them simply "Macedonia". But that illusion was broken early on, even before the deal was passed by the Greek government. Our common neighbors are now talking about a "Macedonian Language", a "Macedonian nation" and a "Macedonian minority in Greece". They even suggested that we also change our region of Macedonia to "South Macedonia".

It simply seeds to much to our neighbors and sets the ground for irredentist claims and counterfeiting of history. All that for a puny "North" that no one so far seems willing to use.

And whereas you could argue that most people accepted those terms before the deal, at least they weren't recognized by international law and a signed treaty.

P.S.: Curse you Tito, this is all your doing!

Oh wow, so it appears that raptured sewage pipe goes alot deeper.
I honestly wish my government would stop playing EU lapdog and intervene in this.
There can be nothing good in formally recognizing ANYTHING to do with that country internationally, as much as I know that bigger nations dont even care.
The problem seems to be too unique and localized for international law to even begin to try and fix it.
And hearing some of our Political analysts just say "the past is the past, we need to enter a new era of cooperation" and such plain makes me mad.
Honestly wanting Greece to change the name of it's historical region is just laughably insulting, I have no idea on how wide the popular support for Tsipras is, but he might be shooting himself and his cabinet in the foot with this deal.
This is some hot mess that is just getting stickier, if not for NATO anexing that little nation wannabe is the next best thing.

Tito yes but I believe the issue is a bit older ideologically, Serbian prime minister Stoyan Novakovij. I wish I could go back and beat the shit out of him!

On a brighter note, have some memes to better swallow this problematic issues, as we know its good to laugh at it :D
