Artwork commissions are re-opened finally!
For the first time in a long time I have opened all types of commissions, from comic/manga style character art to caricature commissions and ACEO cards.
You can see the full range here, or check out the links under 'shop' in the menu.

It's March & I've had enough of winter now, so of course I end up drawing a very summery picture with my OC, Minnie!
So, I had sketched this & then I decided to use the picture for my new commission info. I scanned the inks + then printed them out so I had two copies. The second image is my layered ('cell shaded' like) marker colouring style (which I did on the print out, since that wouldn't smudge the ink as much) & the third is my fully blended, mixed media colouring style, which is a lot softer but nicer.
This isn't the usual way I'd do things - if I am going to be colouring a picture, especially in a very blended style or with mixed media I will lay off the heavy/thick inking until after I've coloured. This way there is less chance of smudging the artwork! (& going over your marker colouring with thicker ink lines means you can sneakily fix up any marker bleed...)
INKS | Fineliners + brush pen
SECOND DRAWING | Pro markers + Sharpie marker + triplus pens + white ink (I did blend the sky a little in this case)
THIRD DRAWING | Lots of different marker brands + pencil crayons + triplus pens + white ink
A series of commissions I did back in 2011 - These are client's own original characters with a spray of flowers in the background, or items, that suit their personality.
These were all made with markers + various gel ink pens, then edited in Photoshop for a 'cut out' paper effect on a flat colour background.
These were a lot of fun to make, so I will likely offer them as commissions again one day!
Some commissions of two client's original characters I did in 2010-2011 designed to look like stained glass windows/mosaics. These are made entirely with markers + white ink.
I really should do some of my own characters for fun, as these are really a lot of fun to make!
These were a commission type I offered for a while from 2013-2014 - They are a great deal of fun to do so I will likely offer them again one day!
They are simple, character art images featuring an original multi-patterned outfit in single flat colours. The character art was drawn traditionally & marker coloured with a flat colour background in Photoshop.
It all started with four pictures I made of my own original characters for fun:
Between 2011-2012 I worked on some of 5Finity's licensed sketch card sets. These are all drawn on 2.5 x 3.5 inch trading cards using markers, finliners, brush pens + gel ink pens.
You can find the cards I did in the gallery below, under 'read more'!
I still have a couple of Artist Exclusives for sale (below) (I have now sold all blanks.)
