Abrupt sketch commissions?
I am in a bit of a bind until I get my teaching paycheck come August 1st, so how about some pencil sketch commissions? You can help me pay for food AND to get my duff away from my computer!
- $35 for 1-2 characters (for more characters or background elements, we’ll need to add a little bit)
- Full amount paid up front to my PayPal
- Finished piece is snail mailed to you! (Price includes shipping, but if you’re outside of the US, an additional $5 to help ship it would be INCREDIBLY helpful.)
- Finished piece is similar to examples above and is about 9”x5”
- NSFW is allowed
If interested, feel free to drop me an ask, or you can use the form on my website! I have freelance work and three other current commissions currently going on, but these sketch commissions will be done in the time before I sit down to work for the day. Current work is still ongoing.

Color palette tutorial time!
This is by no means the Only Way To Pick Colors—it’s just a relatively-simple method I use sometimes. I’ve found it works pretty well, almost regardless of what colors you pick—as long as you can keep them organized by those light/dark warm/cool categories, and make sure one category takes up a significantly higher proportion of page space, it usually turns out pretty good!

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly. :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy! You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through. You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way! Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!
Love your art, love yourself!
I felt like doing a new one with different pallets!! Send a character and a number and I’ll draw them with that pallet!
I wanted to make one of those color palette memes with my favorite color schemes.
reblogged those memes with a “please don’t send asks” tag because i’m planning on eventually using them all, i want to practice coloring and shading and i figure stuff like that would be helpful. (having them on my blog serves as motivation and also an easy way to find links to them for sourcing later)
i mean if you really want to see a certain character in a certain palette by all means send an ask, but i’m not gonna guarantee that i’ll do it or that i’ll do it soon
