Introducing Hesperornithoides miessleri

Introducing Hesperornithoides miessleri

I'm afraid my summer schedule isn't going to give me much time for DA posting, but I did want to take a moment to introduce you to a new small, winged dinosaur from the Jurassic of North America that I and my coauthors named - Hesperornithoides miessleri. If you want more information about it I also wrote up a blog post you can read here: http://www.skeletaldrawing.com/home/hesperornithoides-faq7102019 Cheers!

My Bio
Professional artist working in both traditional and digital media, craftsman, doll customiser/costumer, jeweller, bookbinder.

COMMISSIONS:

SIZE: I generally work on a minimum canvas size of 4Kx4K at 300dpi - however this is open to negotiation depending on whether you want a high print-quality image or something for web work.

TIMESCALE: This depends on what you're after; simple sketches on a blank or parchment-textured background I can do on a 1-2 day turnaround; simple painting of a bust will take 2-3 days. Full-length character portraits will take longer depending on how complicated the outfit is. Full-length portrait with full painted background could easily take me up to a couple of weeks to do. It also depends on how busy I am. I will discuss and agree a timescale with you before any money changes hands.

SUBJECT MATERIAL: This is pretty much up to you with very few exceptions. I'm pretty versatile and can do pretty much almost any subject material; please browse my gallery for samples of my work. Animals are my real forte, but I also enjoy painting portraits. If you're not sure whether I can do justice to a particular subject, please ask!

PRICES:
* Simple sketch, blank or parchment background £30
* Simple portrait - head & shoulders/bust, blank/parchment background £50
* Full-length character portrait, minimal background £65
* Full painting with detailed background £80
* Pet portraits - blank/parchment background, fully-coloured, digitally painted, 300dpi suitable for printing £45
* Logos etc - POA, generally £15-£30 depending on complexity and size required.
* Tattoo designs - POA

PAYMENT: In the UK: Either Bank Transfer to my account or Paypal. Outside UK: Paypal only please. I require a 50% non-refundable down-payment upon agreement of the commission, the remainder to be paid upon completion of the commission. All pictures will be released with a Creative Commons license unless otherwise specified & negotiated. I reseve the right to display a copy of the work as part of my deviantART portfolio.

If you would like to commission me, please send me a Note or email me at arkadyDOTroseATgmailDOTcom with the subject heading of "Commission:DA".

Devious Journal Entry

Please note the change of name; formerly arkadyrose, I'm now RoseGerard, as I have changed my name legally from Arkady Rose to Rose Arkady Gerard, taking my husband's surname (only 2.5 years after we married, but whatever!).

Rather busy of late but not with art :-(

Rather busy of late but not with art :-(

Life has become exceedingly complicated as of late. I'm basically getting no time to just doodle and sketch for my own amusement; it seems that any spare time for art has to be dedicated to (hopefully) paying work - generally t-shirt designs for Redbubble and Spreadshirt. I'm squeezing in writing time whenever I can. This is all because I've had to withdraw my youngest daughter from her school; she'll be 10 in a couple of weeks, has high-functioning autism - and has been the victim of bullying by the head teacher of her school who repeatedly goads my daughter into full-blown meltdowns or putting her into places/situations which will result i
