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
This is a re-make (yet to colour it) of my a picture I drew for World Mental Health Day several years ago, representing the One in Four mental health statistic: 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year. *
(Uploading older artwork from earlier this year - I think this was somewhere around Easter but not sure!)
Just some inking of a punky princess accompanied with gold acrylic marker ~ 👑
I quite often draw little cartoon 'self portraits' to go on various websites I use - thought I would collect them in one place!
