I've recently updated my website with a new layout. It's still in process, but it's come a long way. In other news, for ease of selling commissions I put together an Etsy site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/illustrationsbyraina To sum it up: I do character commissions. Single figure colored images run $40 Color/Painted busts/portraits run $30 Pencil drawings run $25-30 depending on what you want. Anything else, message and talk to me!

Improvement

I made the mistake of looking at old art. Wow, even if I am nowhere near where I want to be? I've definitely made improvements.

Practice

0 min read
In order to force improvement upon myself – kicking and screaming if necessary – I try to make a point to do a daily practice sketch. What I do is this: 1) Find a nice figure drawing. I like The Satorialist for this, and DeviantArt has some awesome stock art photographers for this purpose. I make the image big on my monitor, clear away  my keyboard, get out some printer paper, and then try to do a loose but accurate figure sketch. 2) When the sketch is complete as I'm going to get it, I'll scan that thing and bring it up in Photoshop, then open a copy of the original photo. I drag the sketch over the image, resize it, then adjust

Thankyou kindly for the watch :D
I was going to leave creeptastic comment, but I figured this would be creeptastic enough.
Thanks for the :+Watch: !!!

I love your art though!! hopefully you enjoy mine!
Howdy! Gosh your art is awesome. I noticed that many of your pieces are D&D related. Would you be interested in checking out # Dndeviants ? It's a D&D themed Deviant Art Group that's quite new and looking for members. Thanks!
Thanks very much for the watch!
Hey I was thinking Holly for the three of swords, what do you think?
