I wanted to give public thanks to my last commissioners for their fantastic ideas and characters. Commissions mean not only an extra income for me, but a challenge most of times as to I must please other people than myself with my work. Also, in some times of artistic sloth, commissions mean much more. One must the pencil with an objetive in mind, and just do it. Sometimes it is frustrating, but when the result overcomes all difficulties, it is well worth it. They keep me going, and inspire me to new things.
Of course thanks also to my past commissioners. Thousands of thanks, and hugs, and kisses! They helped me to know that my art was not something valuable just for myself, but for others that were willing to pay for them. Unknown people all around the world! Just try to guess what that means for an amateur, self-taught artist! It is difficult to tell with written words, just ... that gives the extra confidence needed at times to think that what one does, one must keep doing.
So yes, more commissions are coming this way, and more commission slots will be open soon. I just have to finish with the ones I already have.
I am thinking about opening a new kind of commission option, that includes sketches in which the commissioner can choose some of them for further developing, or coloring. Any ideas, suggestions? I think it could include a page full of sketches, or maybe two, with what comes to mind: action poses, different equipments and clothing, some artistic nudes, facial expressions, etc... And out of them one black&white pencil complete picture and another colored in markers. Sounds exciting to me, and I hope it sounds the same for some potential commissioners.
