Open for Commisions: Up to 3

Hey Guys! Bea here, bringing you good news! To those who are interested of course ๐Ÿ˜€

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,ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

*single character* minor background elements optional

Portrait sketch: $30.00 USD

Half Body: $50.00 USD

Full body: $70.00ย  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.ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

Catz Galore!

Hey guys! Bea here!

Been a while since my last post, given that I’ve been enjoying my little Hiatus, but I’m back, with arts to share! Finished arts ๐Ÿ˜€

CatA while back, as some of you may recall, Marc Andre of Katzenworld requested I draw two of his kitties.ย  He enjoyed them, and as it turned out, he commissioned me to do illustrations of all the Katzenworld cats!ย  Because I was working to prepare my portfolio for SDCC, I wasn’t able to complete these illustrations until now, but here they are!

SnowballMao04

Though I’ve been kind of quiet for the past week, mostly because I’ve been catching up on some muuuuch needed sleep, I do have quite a few things in the works that I’m super excited about, that I intend to introduce before the month is out– but for now I’m just trying to get back into the groove of things. Sleeping all day makes me kinda lazy so I’ve been really “meh” about drawing to be honest lol.ย  But, I do hope you liked this post, and the cats! More art to come this week as well as I finish off another commission that’s been in the works!

Till next time, Enjoy!

All Catz!

I laid aside yesterday’s Monday Evening post, and took the days prior to get better, and I am ๐Ÿ˜€ After much tea and vitamins and seeing the super freakin awsome Avengers, Age of Ultron, I am pumped and ready to go! and I’m excited to introduce, the last two sketches of the kitties from Katzenworld, Catto and Angel!

CattoAngel

Here’s what Marc-Andre had to say ๐Ÿ™‚

“Catto is a very curios boy that always wants to check out what is going on and puts his nose into things haha! He has his cuddly moments and likes to play. While he loves his human parents he is not good with other animals of any species!

Angel, As you can see she is a genuine Persian long hair! ๐Ÿ™‚ She almost seems to have a sense of humour and is very inquisitive.”

Naturally I drew Catto curiously exploring things with his nose, and something about Angel suggested I should draw her in a majestic way– so that’s the rout I took.ย  Now for the full spread!

SnowballMao

Since doing the last two sketches I’ve been able to see all the cats as one big picture– so I made some changes to make all the art a bit more uniform in appearance across the board.ย  All the cats now have the same type of eyes– where as before some cats looked like snowball, while others had whites in their eyes. I also scaled all the cats, mostly their heads, to be the same size in each image, so your eyes flow steadily through each one. I also gave Oliver his little goatee he was spose to have, lol!

These are all, however, still just sketches.ย  The final versions will be cleaner, have a bit more detail, and will be in print ready format when complete.

In the meantime, since I have a ton of work on my plate, I decided to take Sid’s suggestion and cut my posts down to one post per week, which will be the Monday Evening Post, at least until I’ve returned from the San Diego Comicon. It is my hope that by limiting my post, I can manage my workload and return to publishing better material ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ll see how that turns out! But in the meantime I am very grateful for everyone’s support as I push through the obstacles :D.
Hope you enjoy the kitties of Katzenworld, and till next time, Enjoy!

Monday Evening Post

Introducing: Oliver, from Katzenworld!

OliverSketchSo what did Marc have to say about Oliver?

In addition to liking to nap, Oliver is also the more mischievous one of the two and gets himself into trouble, especially when he tries to open cupboards +.+”

This was a simple concept to put together– draw Oliver peeking his head out from the cupboard he knows he shouldn’t be in ๐Ÿ™‚

With that said, there are 3 cats to go! Till next time, enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

Monday Evening Post

Back on Track!

” life has a funny way of sneaking up on you when you think everything’s okay, and everything’s going right…And ya well life has a funny way of helping you out when you think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up in your face”

Anyone remember these lyrics? The song is called Ironic, by Alanis Morissette. One of my favorite genre’s of music is alternative rock, and she was one of my favorite artists growing up, and this song really stood out to me. Like it gives me chills, in a weird way, and I’m not sure what to make it of! Anyway, I’ve mentioned it in an earlier post, that I’m preparing my portfolio for the San Diego Comicon. Business has been casual– a few projects here and there, but nothing overwhelming, so I planned to use the next couple of months to focus on learning and creating art to show. “Ironically” since I’ve made this decision, In the course of a week,ย  I have been called, emailed, received texts from past clients– some of which I have not heard from in years, and new clients– all of them, looking to commission me, for quite ambitions projects. Even as I was writing this post, I got a call. I can’t help but wonder why this happened, all of a sudden, and on the magnitude that it has, shortly after making my decision >_<;

I’ve been on and off the phone, in and out meeting with people for the past couple of days, while maintaining the “three” jobs I have currently, and unfortunately I was in a position where I was unable to publish my Thursday Evening Post. So here we are, on Monday! I still have a ton of things to sort out, and figure out, but I’m back on track, and I have arts to share!

Introducing Nubia, from Katzenworld!

NubiaSketchSo what did Marc Andre have to say about the lovely Nubia??

“Nubia as you gathered is very playful and not so easily seen from the photos NOISY!!! We sometimes jokingly call her Nubzilla the chatterer of peace haha.”

Of all the kitties from Katzenworld, Nubia has to be one of my favorites. I actually played around with a lot of ideas with her! Like drawing her as Godzilla, destroying paper box cutouts, designed to look like a miniature city in comparison to her size, and contemplated how I could draw her being chatty– but I figured the best approach would be the simpler approach, so Iย  drew her covered in yarn to express her playful nature. Look at her face! She knows no shame in getting into stuff! It is who she is! lol I love drawing her!

SnowballMao

Next up, will be Oliver, accompanied by some personal work I’m eager to share ๐Ÿ˜€

Also I want to share a song I listened to quite a bit while drawing Nubia. It’s just a beat, but it’s happy and light and quite enjoyable. Hope you like it too!

Till next time, Enjoy!

Monday Evening Post

Lazy Afternoons with Mao, from Katzenworld

MaoSketch

My posts are running at weird times, mostly because I’m doing other projects, that force me to work on my sketches late into the night, but I should be back on schedule and more timely with my posts starting next week. ๐Ÿ˜€

So, when I asked Marc what he could tell me about Mao, this is what he had to say ๐Ÿ˜€

“Slightly chubby! Looks like an emperor penguin– She is the lazier of one of the two (herself and Snowball) and loves to nap on anything in her way especially the sofa.”

So I drew a sketch of Mao on the Sofa, napping lol! Again I tried sticking close with the original concept in the banner, only with sunset colors for atmospheric purposes. Because Mao and Snowball look quite alike to me, I may have got her fur pattern wrong, but like all these sketches they will be cleaned up and made to look better when it’s time to refine them.

I’ll also include each new cat to this spread as I go on

SnowballMao

Till next time, Enjoy!

Thursday Evening Post

Hey guys! I’m a little late with this post, mostly because I spent most of my day sleeping, and only got around to putting time in my drawing in the wee hours of the night. But here we are, and I bring you arts!

Our subject? a colored sketch of Katzenworld’s very own- Snowball!

SnowballSketch
As mentioned in my previous post, I’m working withย Marc-Andrรฉ to produce art featuring the cats of Katzenworld– which include Snowball, Mao, Oliver, Nubia, Zelda, Catto and Angel. Cats are still challenging for me to draw– especially since I’m so used to drawing humans, but I’ve been taking my time to find a way to best approach this project.

One thing I like to do when I start a project like this, is focus on setting the tone that will be consistent throughout the series. I do this by producing an unrefined sketch, like this one, which simply gives an idea of the direction I’m going to take. This is my first draft, so, it is subject to change if Marc requests it.

Prior to creating the sketch, I had to consider how I would approach drawing each cat. Since I had already drawn Oliver and Nubia before to Marc’s Liking, I decided to do the same– which was to try to draw the cats in a way that expressed their character. To do this, I asked Marc to tell me little bit about each cat and their personality.

Here’s what I learned about Snowball! He is, cuddly, rowdy and they usually dub him โ€œBoss catโ€ because he is always out and about looking for trouble. He’s also number 1 on Katzenworld’s current banner.

Knowing that about Snowball, I decided to stay true to the original banner– by featuring him outside, being out and about, only this time showing him in action, curiously stalking in the grass.

Going forward, I’ll be posting a sketch like this, of each cat in my Evening Posts, in addition to Marc’s description of them, until all cats are drawn before proceeding to completion– so, look forward to those!

Till next time, Enjoy!
