I’m Available for Commissions!

I’m available for commissions for the holiday season!

If you’ve ever wanted me to draw you something, this is your window of time. And people who join my email newsletter will get a special discount tomorrow for 25% off their order!

Why am I open for commissions now? Well, part of it is the holiday spirit. And also…

  • Making art is my full-time job. But currently, client work is pretty light. So I have time to make commissions for you.
  • my neck of the woods has been under a freeze warning for the last few days, which means turning up the heat – raising our electric bill.
  • My roommate and I rescued a kitten recently. He’s 6 weeks old now! We rescued him from the middle of a busy road, and we want to give him the best life we can. Which means vet visits to make sure he’s vaccinated and healthy.

Want to see what I can draw for you? Here are some samples…

full color full body character $100+
half body, full color character $90+
full body, black and white character $80+
half body in black and white $70+

Now, these are priced the way they are because these are prices for the general public. KickStarter backers already got their orders in. They (and email subscribers) get discount codes off commission prices during special windows of time.

Email subscribers will get their discount code in the morning. So if you want that sweet, sweet discount, subscribe today.

Not subscribing? No problem – I can draw your commission for you, anyway!

Before You Order…

I have updated my terms and conditions to make things more transparent for you, while also making clear what you can (and can’t do) with the art I make for you. That agreement is in this Google Doc. So be sure to give it a look before you proceed.

After that, head on over to Ko-Fi and place your order there!

Commissions are open for everyone UNTIL DECEMBER 15. That way I can make every effort to get these done before Christmas/New Year’s Eve.

Broke? Share this announcement! It helps (more than you think it does).

That’s all for now. Thank you for your support!

The Puppet Master – Fighting Game Concept Art

an elf with dark brown skin sits in the air, wearing a neon green mask made of wood. Behind her floats an ethereal masked spirit with enlarged, clawed hands.

This year I have been drawing concept art of fighting game characters. Previously, I posted live streams. Today, I’m sharing a finished art piece – the Puppet Master character.

Puppet Master is a fighting game archetype in the character roster. Their gimmick is that they are a fighter who also controls a puppet. For this character, I decided to play with the idea of a “puppet” and make the controlled character a spirit.

My first draft was closer in concept to the Earth spirit dancers of the Bwa people in Burkina Faso. But I decided to revisit the idea and draft a few more takes. I’m very pleased with how this turned out.

If you would like to see the process of drawing this piece, check out this stream archived on YouTube and here on the blog. Each step got done in Clip Studio Paint.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

Charlie, the All-Rounder – Fighting Game Concept Art

This is Charlie!

This character stars in my comics Charlie & Clow, Charlie & Clow: The Bonus Arc, and The Case of the Wendigo. I also decided to include her in a fighting game concept as part of the character line-up.

To me it only makes sense. In the comics, she’s a student of Tae Kwon Do. So why not have her put that to use in a fighting game?

She was the first character I drew as part of the character line-up for this game idea. After sketching a few ideas, I went with this pose. It captures her attitude well, I think. And then I drew her in every stage on Clip Studio Paint. (This was before I discovered the timelapse feature in Clip Studio, so sadly, I have no timelapse animation of drawing her, like I do most of the other characters).

I’ll be posting more character art as time goes on. So stay tuned!

If you would like to watch me draw these characters, I do live streams on Twitch on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 2 pm EST. So be sure to tune in sometime! Like, today even! Of course, I don’t stream if I’m out of town or sick, but I do my best to let you know ahead of time about schedule changes.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

BOYS – a Dragonball Z and Lizzo Fan Video

…I really like my Dragonball Z boys.

Song Copyright to Lizzo and her records. Dragonball, Dragonball Z and Dragonball GT are owned by Funimation, Toei Animation, Sueisha, and Akira Toriyama.

Did I really make a fan project for an old anime? Yes. Because I fucking love this show.

I drew the drawing animations and image stills in Clip Studio Paint. The final video editing got done with Olive, an open-source video editing software. I used Olive for the first time for something this complex, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of using it!

Thank you for watching.
