Something Blue by Ashen-Phoenix
Something Blue
A water-colored dragon I did many years ago. Going through my old files turned him up. I'm still pretty happy with how he came out (In those days I felt you had to draw each individual scale. By hand).

Couldn't get all of him in because my scanner is too small. :faint:

May redraw him one of these days.

Feeling a lot better these days, least of all because I've regained internet capabilities.

RL stuff has been all over the place so it's great to finally have it settle down somewhat. Due to the workload of my new job I'm back into drawing and will post some things when I can.

SPN: The Righteous Man by Atomic-Clover
The overall composition I love as well as the visual parallel of his eyes. There's just something a bit off. I'm thinking the face shape as a whole--and jawline in particular--are a bit too angular which gives the impression of a thinner face and adds an unwanted emphasis to the forehead.

The lettering is a tad difficult to make out in the first/top two sentences, specifically "destiny right in" and "take the fight to them." I realize clarity can be an issue with any shade of yellow so I'm unsure how you might go about remedying this. Perhaps green would be a possible replacement color (provided that doesn't take away from your original vision).

I hope this is helpful. On the whole I'm terribly impressed with your work with this series and I especially love to see you get better and better.
Some times I feel pretty proud with how a drawing's turned out, and then today I felt so frustrated and sad because I couldn't draw a specific angle for a pose. I went with an alternative and it probably looks fine to anyone else but to me I just feel like I settled. Like I gave up 'cuz I'm not a good enough artist to make it look right.

How do you deal with those feelings? Better yet, how can you improve on something so specific when DA is basically your only teacher?

I've been wanting to write up a new Commissions page for 2014-15. Now I finally have the time lol. :faint:

There are a number of options to choose from, depending on budget and what someone would like: a Sketch, an inked Line Art, or a detailed Colored piece. You can also choose between Waist Up or Full Body, and what type of coloring you'd like: Colored Pencil or Cell Shaded.

:bulletgreen: I will draw:
+ Original characters (picture references should be included)
+ Character designs (basic concepts should be included; details are left up to me)
+ Chibis
+ Fan Art (Depending on the character; ask if you're unsure)
+ Expression sheets

:bulletred: I won't draw:
- Furries
- Sexual content
- Robots/mechs
- Backgrounds
- Inflation

As always, if you're unsure if it's something I'll draw or not don't hesitate to ask!

Prices (per character):

Waist Up: $15 (sketch), $25 (line art), $35 (colored - cell shade), $45 (colored - pencil)
Examples of chibi sketches and line arts, and waist-up sketches

Full Body: $25 (sketch), $35 (line art), $45 (colored - cell shade), $55 (colored - pencil)
Example of colored pencil
Example of full-body colored cell shade (line art example not shown)
Examples of extra details (line art, colored pencil, chibi sketch)

Please be aware that complex or unusual poses, a lot of details, weapons or other items are all subject to an additional fee (approx. $5-20) depending on the complexity and the subsequent amount of time I'll need to spend on it.

If there's some interest, please let me know in the comments! I'm in the process of moving so I'm inclined to open commissions. So if you like my style and want something, sound off! :)
