New Ponysona, finally! + commissions? + more art!
« on: February 10, 2018, 01:11:33 PM »
Will be writing about commission stuff at the bottom of this post!


I've been working on a new ponysona for a loooong time, but I think I've found a design I like finally!
I'll be working on her some more, sort her symbol out etc, I do know what I want it to be, I just need to design it proper, but for now I'm happy to just have found a colour scheme. That's been difficult enough.
Now, as much as I love Neko, my old 'sona, I felt like it was time for an updated one. I've evolved as a person, and Neko felt... dated? And not really like she reflects who I am. xD
Been trying to work out a new ponysona for months, actually, so I'm pleased to have come this far. I've named her Shailatte (because Shai is mah name, and I like tea/coffee way too much... plus it's cute xD)
promarkers, sakura pigma FB & MB, FC polychromos, white gelly roll.



Neko in spoiler just for comparison
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.



My next piece of art is my friend's new fursona Minigris (swedish for mini pig) although she is in face a bear! I'm absolutely obsessed with bears, so I was thrilled to get to draw her in an art trade (ATC sized - anyone still do ATC trades/swaps on here?) !
Watercolours, sakura pigma FB & MB, promarker and white gelly roll.



Third piece is this picture of Quarterback that I don't know if I ever posted here ^^
Marker, FC polychromos, white gelly roll and microns + FC pitt brush pen.





Now I wanted to bring up the subject of commissions!
I wanted to throw it out there that I am open for commissions, and check if anyone would be interested :)
I need to raise some money to be able to upgrade my art situation, as my trusty old tablet is finally giving up (so for now, I'm only open to traditional art commissions!). I'm also always open to trade art for ponies!

Pricing ideas:

$10 headshot picture.
-quick commissions like the two pieces above, with a simple (1-2 colours, simple patterns etc) background or no background (transparent + version with white bg)

+$5 Add another pony/character to above tier pic, or two separate headshot pictures if you buy them at the same time. $5 per extra character, up to 3.

Headshot portraits for a pony is face and neck, for an anthro/furry down to just below shoulders/can add hands/paws. (refer to minigris)



$20 full body picture
-quick commissions, with a simple (1-2 colours, simple patterns etc) background or no background (transparent +white version)

+$8 Add another pony/character to your full body pic, or two separate pictures if you buy them at the same time. $8 per extra character, up to 3.

Full body pictures are great for con badges, or just portraits in general of your character!



$30 and up:
If you want elaborate backgrounds, more than three characters, me to help you design a pony/character and/or make a ref sheet,  realistic art or something in the style of my ink drawings (images in spoiler below) message me and we'll work out a price for your personal piece!

Trade for ponies
I have a wishlist HERE! I'm also looking for the new collector's pose 35th ponies.


What I will draw:
-ponies, pony or anthro form
-furry characters, feral or anthro form
-realistic animals & plants
-game characters


What won't I draw?
-pornographic content
-explicit nudity
only writing this out because I've been asked in the past on here.




Art examples!

 NOTE: there's art of an insect in this spoiler! If bugs freak you out, go to the next spoiler!

You have a really cute style! I love it, and I love the way you color!

Your new ponysona has such pretty hair! I'm a big fan of pink and yellow color schemes.
