I drew this skeleton fiddler as a commission for someone last month. I think he turned out well!
I drew this entirely digitally, on Clip Studio Paint. It’s my program of choice, because PhotoShop is a hard drive hog and CSP is much smoother and easier to manage.
I was first approached by Mr. Smith, at the Pittsburgh Witches Ball. He asked me if I was available to do commissions.
That made me ask, “What would you like me to draw for you?” And he said, “I was thinking of getting my family drawn as superheroes. But let me get back to you on that.”
About a month later I was approached by Mrs. Smith.
She asked, “Can you please draw my family and me as super heroes?” To which I said, “Absolutely!”
That resulted in this:
While I was drawing this, Mr. Smith contacted me again. He said, “Hey! Are you still available to do commissions? Because I would really like you to draw my family as superheroes.”
Before I could reply, I contacted Mrs. Smith and said, “Uh…your husband just asked me to make the same thing you asked for. What should I do?”
So I said to Mr. Smith, “Sure I can make the thing!”
And that’s how I drew this:
They were both surprised when the presents were unwrapped.
