:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Hello! Welcome to my page where I'm trying to post art more frequently :'D

I've come a long way since college, where I was torn between giving up pursuing art altogether and trying to teach myself how to get better with illustrating digitally. My gallery isn't much, but at least I can say that I still keep going, despite all my doubts and despite my full-time retail job trying to suck the life out of me. Don't worry about me, though; I've really come to learn how to enjoy every moment I have to myself, reflecting on life, the world around me, and the unknown. I've become...well, a bit of a tree-hugger, to be honest :XD:

What I also enjoy doing on here is fav'ing tons of breathtaking fantasy landscapes by fantastic and talented artists, and fueling my dragon obsession :lol:
Interests

Please read through this before asking me about commissions!



When you send a Note to ask me, I am going to assume you've reviewed this information already. Hopefully any questions you have can be answered here.

I will have commissions open mostly for Fantasy-themed digital illustrations and subjects. Dragons, unicorns, manticores, minotaurs, phoenixes, werewolves, merfolk, etc. You name it. I will also draw humanoid subjects or human Mages. If there isn't a species I've heard of, I'll gladly look up references.

Electric Amph by Satin-Bowerbird   Orange Naga by Satin-Bowerbird   Blue Mollusk Serpent (WIP) by Satin-Bowerbird    Blue Mage by Satin-Bowerbird


Though I am also open to drawing Fanart and OC's.

Pricing



:bulletblue:Simple lineart (with or without background): $10    Lightning Amphiptere Lines by Satin-Bowerbird



:bulletblue: Basic color: $15   Lightning Amphiptere Color1 by Satin-Bowerbird



:bulletblue: Basic color with background: $15 with an additional $3 to $5depending on complexity of background   Lightning Amphiptere BaseColor by Satin-Bowerbird


:bulletblue: No background or Simple gradient background: No additional cost 


:bulletblue: Colored and shaded without background: $20  Lightning Amphiptere Shade1 by Satin-Bowerbird


:bulletblue: Colored and shaded with specific background: $20 with an additional $5 or $10 depending on complexity of background:   Electric Amph by Satin-Bowerbird

:bulletblue: More than one subject: $5 for each additional subject


Dragon Scales:

For scales, I typically use pattern brushes that I got from this user: Paint Tool Sai - Dragon Scales Pack by zummerfish


:bulletblue: If you want a pattern brush for scales, they are no additional cost.

Dragonscales 2 by Satin-Bowerbird



:bulletblue: If you want scales drawn by hand, it will be an extra $2 to $5, depending on if you also want the scales fully shaded/detailed.

Dragonscales 1 by Satin-Bowerbird



:bulletblue: I can be flexible, but don't try to haggle. Depending on the simplicity or complexity of the picture and subjects, I am willing to adjust prices. For example, a picture of two small birds isn't going to cost the same as a picture with two dragons, regardless of whether they're colored or not.


Payment Method


:bulletblue: I do not accept point commissions. All payments must be made in USD (US Dollars). I use PayPal, and I'll ask you to provide your email address via Note.
:bulletblue: All payments are to be made up front. I will not be taking partial payments, or payments in installments.
:bulletblue: After you have the illustration and have made your payment, and there are still details you would like changed, let me know. Three small changes or touch-ups (ex: changing colors, adding/removing horns, etc. ) will be free of charge. After that it's an additional $2 for each change. If you want another subject added, it will be another $5 or $10 (again depending on whether it's colored or not.) 

~~~~~~~~~~

Will Not Draw

:bulletblue: Realism: I would prefer to draw in a more cartoony style without excessive attention to making a scene or subject look super realistic - this especially goes for humans, which I tend to draw in a more anime-inspired style. I'll still do my best to create an accurate representation of the subject, and will look up references of people/animals for anatomy and detail.

:bulletblue: Gore/Horror: I don't mind drawing creepy creatures, or fighting/ action scenes with some blood, but I will avoid drawing excessive gore or scenes of torture or emotional terror. Consider drawings like this my limit:


Yashiro's Nightmare by Hikari-Dareigan   EldrichSlendy by Satin-Bowerbird

:bulletblue: Sexual themes: I'm not going to draw anything NSFW and I want to stray away from provocative scenes as well. If the character is human / humanoid / half-human etc. and you want them looking slightly suggestive/flirtatious, that is fine. Though if the character is an Anthro/furry, I will absolutely not allow any nudity or suggestive themes. Even if it's PG, I'm not drawing anything fetish related. Cutesy romance or displays of affection between two creatures or two humanoids are acceptable.

:bulletblue: Large group scenes: I would prefer to keep the number of subjects down to three at maximum (except for, say, birds flying in the distance or fish swimming in water.)

Commission Directions

:bulletblue: Send me a note if you're interested in a commission. Let me know what kind of subject you want, whether it will be lineart, base color, shaded or have a background, what kind of scene/pose, etc. I'll ask if there's any other details just to make sure I'm clear about everything.

:bulletblue: Please be specific! Send me a specific color palette if you want, provide any reference pictures you can, describe how you want their pose to be, how their expression should look, what the lighting should be like. 

:bulletblue: Once I have these details, I'll whip up a basic sketch for you just to make sure I have the pose and composition right, then I'll get to work!

Hi - I know it's been a while, but I'm trying to go through and give artists I've had the pleasure of getting to know a heart, as part of Inkblush's Heart Initiative.

Aww, thank you - I'm doing pretty well - I've gotten into a couple groups somewhat randomly over the past several months - and it's sort of consumed me. XD;; But I'm having fun and getting in a lot of practice - an actual style may be emerging? I'm not really sure, but it's going well, I believe.
