Open for Commisions: Up to 3

Hey Guys! Bea here, bringing you good news! To those who are interested of course 😀

While I am preparing additional art-filled posts for your guys to enjoy, this one is about something different- Commissions!

I’ve gotten a few requests from different individuals interested in commissioning me, but because my schedule for the past couple of months was so tight, I just didn’t have the time. However, for the remainder of this week, on into next week,  I have a lot of time off for work, which makes me available!

I am currently working on preparing posts for about 3 commissions that have been in progress that you’ll be seeing soon, but while I have this downtime, I’m available to do 3 more, for anyone whose interested.

Now if you’ve seen my gallery it’s clear that I work in various different styles, so I feel the need to specify what type of Commissions I’m available to do in this down time, which are “sketch/speed painting” commissions.

Here are some examples 🙂

Color:

BW:

Basically I included work that I can I do within a day’s time, which was the case for many of the examples you see here, since I only have a small window of time, which also means, fast delivery!

So, if you’re interested, here’s what I’m available to do– and for how much 🙂

*single character* minor background elements optional

Portrait sketch: $30.00 USD

Half Body: $50.00 USD

Full body: $70.00  USD

Additional characters: +$15.00 USD per additional character, up to 3

To add color: + $25.00 USD

On a special note, if you happen to be more interested in a pet sketch, like some of the kitties you see there, they are based at $30.00 USD per character, in bw, or +25 for color and +15 for any additional characters.

Guidelines–

If you’re interested in Pinup art, or something a bit racy, that’s fine, however I don’t’ draw things that are too explicit, which would include drawings of sexual acts or anything pornographic. If you’re interested in something along these lines and you’re not sure if it falls in the category of things I don’t do– feel free to write me in private and we can discuss your request.  Also, keep in mind that these are digital sketches, which means they will be delivered digitally, but of a high enough quality to make prints, if you so choose.

How to request a commission and how the process works–

feel free to write me, via the contact tab up top. Your request will go directly to my email, and I’ll provide you all the information you need, and keep you up to date with my progress so you can direct me as I work, providing any corrections or feedback prior to the completion.

Again, I’m only able to take up to 3 commissions, and the turnover will be sometime next week, unless there are delays with progress, due to corrections, changes, ect– so, feel free to contact me, if you’d like to be one of the three 🙂

That said, stay tuned tomorrow for more updates :D!

Monday Evening Post

So it isn’t the evening, as I’m posting this– I don’t care, I breaks the rules!

Anyway, I want you to meet Tom from Catsatthebar! He’s a writer, photographer, and cat aficionado!

Portrait StudyNot to long ago, I published an article requesting help from my followers by asking them to allow me to paint a portrait of them, for  practice. As I mentioned- one of the goals I have, for this blog is to be able to engage with my followers and watchers– and what better way to do that, then to allow you the opportunity to take part in some of my studies as I learn and grow as an artist! I only had a few slots open and Tom was the first to join in!

I was really excited when I got his photo– he’s a handsome guy with an interesting personality and it shows!  This photo in particular is one that he said he was known for taking– where he just kind of stops and stares off into the distance at whatever happens to catch his eye.

About this painting– it’s not photo accurate. I never intended for it to be. These are simply excises; speed paintings done in a short amount of time, designed to try different techniques, broaden my understanding of using different brushes for different effects, playing with my imagination to enhance the lighting and ambiance, and to have a general understanding of facial structure and shapes. It’s important to me that I keep these paintings loose and avoid being a perfectionist. As the old saying goes– only practice makes perfect– and perfectness is simply a byproduct of practice. Overall, when doing these types of studies, the objective is to learn, embrace imperfection,relaxed and have fun while doing it.

Thank you again Tom for lending your handsome face!

TomfaceAs always, Enjoy!
