|featured stuff I like personally.|
What I've been doing lately.
It's been a messy year to start with. I'm currently trying to get to finish some old images I had buried in my last year folder and didn't quite finish... trying to get my stuff together. It's not really a critical thing to do but it feels like this bug that's scrapping the back of my head all the time, like reminding me how unprofessional I am with my own career. Those were some potential sketches and some personal stuff I never got to finish. I had around 12 or so and I'm currently down to 4-5. One of the biggest was the dragon thing, which I'm not entirely happy about, but the biggest one that's coming now its the Evelynn fanart, which I've been postponing it like ... forever. It's a really difficult image because it needs to be at the height and expectation to its own sister. The Ashe fanart. Which in my opinion is one my best I've done (not to sound cocky or anything... just, is how it is). So I'm leaving that one to the end. I got other ones that are pretty stupid to do at this point but what do you want. OCD right?
Some other things you might know about is that this year is gonna be all about me doing this personal project I have (Book of The Forgotten). I want to be able to finish it for good and not to be talking about it all the time like I'm actually doing something. I also got into this "project" (idea) with my best bud Shevs, which I might be talking about later. And some random freelance. I told everybody I'm not gonna be taking any freelance this year in order to put pressure on me and fully concentrate in my personal growth. Still I consider myself and old dude and I cannot just be pretending money grows on trees so every once in a couple of months I'll try to replenish my little piggy with some coins... nothing big... keep it in the smallest percentage I can. Like one character every 2 months or so, but nothing that really distracts me from my main objective. It's been good-ish so far, so nothing to really worry about. So... those are some things I'm up to "professionally".And in another more personal area. I found someone amazing and I'm gonna move to Colombia for a couple of months. Which has to be the craziest thing I've ever done in my life. My work flow might be getting down a bit. But this is gonna give me an amazing insight on what I'm currently at with my life and career and it's actually fueling me up to become even better at my stuff every day. It's been a while now that I've been on this path to become a professional "artist" and I got to give it to those guys on the top. It really is what people say. Being in the middle of the ocean and just having to row as strong and steady as you can. It's frustrating, is tiring and you won't see an island where to stop and replenish for long periods of time. You get little success and you got to do what you can with it in order to fuel you up, but at the same time not to get too comfy.
Q: Do you take commissions?
A: Yes. Do please send me a note or an e-mail and I'll get back to you with schedules, prices and more and we can keep talking about it.
Q: How much do you charge per "X" (x = any image required by client):
A: It depends on many things. What's going to be used for, detail required, how much time do you want me to spend on the piece, etc. I take care to make a fair price so it suits you well.
Q: Do you work for free?
A: No I don't. I have to live from what I do. So sadly I don't do any art for free anymore, because I wouldn't be able to pay any expenses.
Q: Can I use/post/share some of your work for free?
A: Of course. As long it's non commercial work and not looking to resell it. Any work here available might be used for this purposes as long you credit me and link the work back to my DA or ArtStation website.
Big exception tho. If you are looking to use some of my work on a game project that you call "free" or non commercial is completely baned. I've been getting some notes for some "reuse" of some of my images and I'm completely against it. If you want to use them for a test is ok. But if you're releasing a beta or an actual product (whether is free or not) that a public is going to see and use I recommend you to actually save some money and hire people. Because what we need to do in our community is support jobs, not avoid them.
Q: Where do you get inspiration?
A: Music mainly. OST's or some related epicness like Wardruna or Two Steps From Hell. Almost anything that allows me to daydream.
