I got an email from the editor of cgsociety telling me that he liked my work that was featured in the latest issue of ImagineFX.

I was like Wha? I sent my stuff almost eight months ago and I never got a single email receipt let alone an email telling me that they're featuring my stuff in the Reader FXpose portion of their magazine.
So I went down to get a copy of the magazine expecting to see my stuff in one of the new artists featured there.

But I didn't expect this... bit.ly/etP4AW

This is probably the best surprise ever! This is definitely a dream come true for me! :D

Peace out! =p

I've been looking at other people on DA doing commission and I noticed that I might have pegged my commission prices on the high side. So I've given my commission prices some thought.

Here's the updated pricing:

Line Art Commissions – A4 size canvass on 300dpi
30USD for 1 character, 15USD per additional character. No Backgrounds.

Half to full body line art drawings of existing characters or characters created by client. Usually, I draw very rough character poses on paper then I draw tighter lines in Photoshop.

5 slots available.

Once I've started on a piece, line art commissions may take anywhere from 3 days to 1 week.



Full Color Commissions – A4 size canvass on 300dpi
80USD for 1 character, 40USD per additional character. With Simple Backgrounds. Elaborate backgrounds subject to different charging depending on complexity.

Half to full body digitally colored commissions of existing characters or characters created by client.

5 slots available

Full color commissions can take anywhere from 2 – 3 weeks.



Interested Parties should send me a note and specifications and I shall write your name down on the available slots. I will engage one client at a time, so please bear with me and I shall get to your request as soon as I can. But I will do reply to you right away to let you know where you are on the list. :)

Once we've agreed on the piece that you want done, I shall work on a very rough sketch for the pose and have it approved with you. After that I shall go ahead with the rough breakdowns of the line art. If you're happy with that, I shall request for a 50% downpayment via Paypal before I proceed to finish the line art. After which, I shall send you the final line art in a 600X800 JPEG. If you are happy with that, I shall request for the balance of the payment before I send you the Hi-res PSD file.

Process is similar with Full color commissions except that I shall give you a rough paint breakdowns to capture the mood lighting and color palette before I request for the 50% downpayment.


THANK YOU! :thanks:

So like I've mentioned in my last post, I'm thinking of trying out doing commission work here in DA. Times are really tough right now for me and I need to make some extra income. So please help out a fellow starving artist. =P

50USD for 1 character, 20USD per additional character. No Backgrounds.

Half to full body line art drawings of existing characters or characters created by client. Usually, I draw very rough character poses on paper then I draw tighter lines in Photoshop.

5 slots available.

Once I've started on a piece, line art commissions may take anywhere from 3 days to 1 week.

Please don't kill me but I just need to clarify something. How do commissions really work?

My rough idea about it is this:

a) Client and Artist agree on the price and the topic of the illustration/drawing.
b) Artist paints/draws it according to agreed specification.
c) Client pays for it by paypal or whatnot.
d) Artist sends over the hi-res raw file (PSD or whatnot) to the client.

Is that all there is to it?

Been thinking of trying my luck at doing paid commissions here on Deviantart. Times are kind of tough and I need to get extra income wherever I can.

Thanks! :D

Got rid of the flash website. Going back to basics!
A lot simpler, cleaner and more straightforward.

Someone filed a violation report against me because I failed to label my deviation: Guardian of the Seas as having mature content.

Whoever filed that report, thanks a lot. You could have just commented about it. I hope you're mighty proud of yourself.
Finally! After 6 months of designing and 1 month-straight of actual flash development, my website revamp is finally complete…err, sort of. A wise man once told me: “A website is a work in progress”. I guess this definitely applies to my site. This is the first website that I’ve developed fully in Flash. So this is sort of a BETA test for this new version. Some of the links might seem like they’re not responding. Just give them time to load. I still haven’t figured out why some content seem to get chocked inside somewhere when you access them. Forgive me for any typos or bugs in the flash UI, and please let me know if you do notice any. The look and feel is inspired by 2advanced.com and the “muse” is inspired by Masamune Shirow’s Ghost in the Shell and Apple Seed.

Special thanks to Cash Ong for teaching me the way of the Action Script and to Lio Valiao for composing the kick-ass ambient track for my website.
