Creature and Chibi commissions (limited spaces)

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 29, 2016, 1:50 PM


I need to draw more creatures outside of Pokemon and I especially need more examples of chibis, so I am opening up a few slots for both of these.
They will each be $10 or 1000 points, and be drawn in a style similar to the example below

[AT] Mocha by arkeis-forothers

For creatures, they can be any non-Pokemon animal like Digimon, MLP, Sonic, original adoptable species, or even just real life animals. No anthros/furries unless they are cartoony (like Sonic and such). I will accept both OCs and existing characters.

For chibis, they must be humanoid or kemonomimi. I can also turn a non-chibi character into a chibi. Like creatures,  I will accept both OCs and existing characters.

There will be two slots for each and this will close on May 1st, 11;59 PM EST
I will choose four characters I like, so post as many as you want in the comments below!

Slot 2:

Winner and Special Commission Auction

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 31, 2016, 2:18 PM


I suck at updating so much that I should probably hire someone to write and post journals for me lol

So from last month's Pokemon 20th anniversary questionnaire, I was going to give away a few points to a random winner. And that winner is:
:iconweirdamirrart: WeirdaMirrart

Congrats, you won 20 points!

Thanks to everyone who participated!

=======================================

The next order of business is a special one time auction:

I'm doing 4 full-body commissions for the price of one! These will serve as examples for my commission sheet.
You will get:

1 colored-sketch
1 lined and flat-colored
1 lined and cell-shaded
1 full painting


 The only requirement is that it has to be a humanoid character. Other than that, this is an extremely rare chance to get multiple artwork for a much lower price than usual.
The starting bid will be set a $25 with a minimum bid increment of $5
The auction ends 48 hours after the last bid.

If you want to participate, please respond to the comment in this journal.

Thank you!

Good luck!

What do you mean it's 2016? I barely did anything last year!

Well, that's not true. I did a lot of things, including moving to a new state and finding a new job. 
But I haven't been very productive on personal art. Most of my time was spent on commissions and gifts for other people, and I still haven't finished all of them (sorry, I'll try to get them done soon!).

Now that I've settled in with a new apartment and new job, maybe I can upload more frequently. We'll see what the new year brings.

Now I'd like to announce that

I am opening ONE Commission Slot for a special price!



Wow, two people got this at the exact same time! One by comment and one by note. I don't want to disappoint anyone on New Year's Eve, so I'll extend this offer to both of them.


Thanks and have a Happy New Year, everyone! :party:
I'm soooo bad at updating! I had a bunch of things I wanted to post in October, and it's already November! :shrug:

The winner of the 310,000 kiriban was :iconenderkittycat:. Congrats! I'll have your prize delivered to you soon.

Thanks to :iconflashfire68: for giving me a free Membership last month (too bad it's almost expired now)! Please contact me with a simple drawing request if you want. 

I commissioned :iconpelycosaur24::iconkururu-pon: and :iconhotbento: recently and they have all done a fantastic job. Please check them out!

And if you want something to do this holiday season, why not join a Secret Santa? Maybe I'll be your santa this year, if you're really lucky. ;)
Check it out here:

By the way, my birthday is coming up on November 15th! If you want to donate some points or a membership, I would really appreciate it. If you want to draw something for me, you can do that as well!

It's been a while since I last made a journal entry. I want to give some updates since I haven't been all that active.

At lot of things have been happening, one of which is getting ready to move to another state. I've got an apartment there and have been driving back and forth moving my stuff there. I also have to look for a new job in that area, meanwhile, my current job has been keeping me very busy. So even drawing time has been limited. 

There are about two more weeks left until my current lease runs out and I permanently move there. In the mean time, I'm going to post some more artwork and try to get some things wrapped up (i.e. commissions). Speaking of that, I want to apologize those of you who have paid and are still waiting for your commission. Even without all the stuff that's been going on, I seem to take forever on things that don't have a hard deadline like contest entries. So I will guarantee that all pending commissions will be finished by August 31st or I'll refund your money/points back!

Also, I intended to do a kiriban for the 300,000th page view, but I missed that for quite a while. So the next one is 310,000. First person to submit a screenshot of that number (or the next closest one) gets a colored sketch request.

Lastly...my subscription/core/whatever runs out tomorrow?
Not sure if I'll bother renewing. But if someone wants to gift me one, I can draw a request for you as well ;)

Name Your Price Commissions [OPEN]

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 22, 2015, 11:57 AM


Yes, I am finally opening up commissions! But these are a special type. Instead of having set prices, I'm letting you decide what you want to pay. Eventually, I'll come up with a commission sheet with real prices when I'm not lazy

It can be anything from an uncolored sketch to a fully colored illustration with a detailed background and multiple characters. It all depends on what you are willing to pay.
It does NOT have to be Pokemon related! I can draw any character or creature from any series as well as fan characters and OCs. 
I accept both Paypal and points.

Rules:

Red Square Bullet  Payment is required before I start on your commission
Yellow Square Bullet  I have to right to refuse a commission if I want
Green Square Bullet Commissions will be done at my own pace. Do not rush me.
Blue Square Bullet Will not draw porn, gore, or very complex architecture/machinery

Examples of art you can get:

Sketches and Speed Paintings (lower end)

Sketch Requests by arkeis-pokemon Cop by arkeis-pokemon 1 by arkeis-pokemon

Digital Paintings (higher end)

Chris the Zorua by arkeis-pokemon Xander young by arkeis-pokemon [Wallpaper] Pokemon X/Y Starters by arkeis-pokemon

Stuff happens

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 8, 2014, 2:09 PM


A lot has been going on in real life, so I wasn't really active for the past month and a half. 

I started a new job during the later part of September. Although it takes about 30 minutes to commute there by car, I decided to go the longer route by taking the subway since I don't feel like sitting traffic. The subway takes slightly less than 1 hour to reach my office, which means I get almost 2 hours of nothing to do for 5 days every week.

In order to be more productive, I decided to spend the time drawing. I heard about Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 and how it can essentially be a portable digital sketchbook for artists. It certainly beats lugging around a Macbook Pro and tablet! So I got one last weekend, put Photoshop on it and used it on the subway to see how it goes. 



The SP3 has really high resolution so you can zoom in on the artwork and it will still be fairly clear. I have to press down a bit harder since it's less pressure sensitive than my Cintiq, but the pressure sensitivity is still nice and the main reason I got this instead of another tablet. I've only had it for a few days now, so I'm still getting used to it, but so far I've been satisfied with it. And since it's Windows, I can finally install Paint Tool SAI on it and try that program out!

------------------

Well, it's October so it seems appropriate that I've been busy with some OCT stuff which I'll be submitting over the next couple of weeks. But most of you watch me for my illustrations and I can assure you that I'll have something special for Halloween and than another big thing before the release of ORAS in November! Thank you very much for your patience!

A Quickie

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 20, 2014, 4:06 PM


Hey guys. Still busy, but I would like to congratulate Animela-WolfHybrid for getting my 234,567th pageview!
Great job! You win a free Pokemon related artwork with up to 3 characters. Please note me when you have decided what you want.

And now I'll set the next number at 250,000. Same thing as last time. Get the pageview and you win a free drawing.

I'm almost done setting up my new apartment and will have the internet and cable enabled this coming Saturday. Hopefully I'll have officially moved in after that. Maybe I'll have more time to work on some more artwork.

Look into the Future

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 11:11 AM


I was going to do something special for my 200k page view, but I'm way past that now. So I've decided to set the next milestone at

234,567


That's right! If you're the lucky person who gets this consecutive numbered pageview, take a screenshot, send it to me by Note, and you'll win a prize - a free Pokemon-related drawing with up to 3 characters. These characters can be official ones or your own creations.

In other news, there have been some major changes in my life and that's why I haven't really been uploading anything other than an OCT entry.

First of all, I just got married! That's right, I'm a husband now. Imagine that. We had a small simple wedding that was still really lovely. We haven't had our honeymoon yet because we have other things to take care of first.

Like moving into our new apartment. We're set to do that next Saturday and it will surely take a couple of days at least before we're fully settled in.

Hopefully after that's all been taken care of, I will have some time to draw again. Maybe I'll even upload something before the end of the month! We'll see.

IT'S HAPPENING!

Well, my birthday is right around the corner. :cake:
November 15th to be precise. 
It's a special day for me, even though it's lost most of its excitement and now all it does is make me feel old. But at least I still get presents!

Oh and for all you X/Y players out there, please drop off your friend code in the comments. I'm looking to collect some more Friend Safaris. Especially Dragon and Steel, as well as any Safari that has Starters in it. And I have no idea what my safari contains, so if someone wants to help with that, then that would be great!

Decisions, Decisions

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 5, 2013, 9:38 AM


Pokemon X and Y come out in less than a week! :excited:

The leaks from Pokemon who have early copies have already revealed a ton of new information. I was going to get Y because of Yvetal, but I do like the color blue better. And I like Mega Charizard X and Mega Mewtwo X better than their Y counterparts. So I decided to switch to X.

My current planned team is

:pokeball: Greninja
:pokeball: Talonflame
:pokeball: Aegislash
:pokeball: Tyrantrum
:pokeball: Pangoro
:pokeball: Sylveon or Florges


So what about you?

1. X version or Y version?
2. Girl or Boy?
3. Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie?
4. Will you be using a Kanto starter?
5. Tyrunt or Amaura?

Optional: What other Pokemon will you be using on your team?

It's September Already?!?

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 6, 2013, 12:49 PM



For the past month, all I've been submitting was OCT entries. That will continue for a bit longer, but I promise I'll upload some personal art too! But probably not until October. I was really busy in August and I thought I would get a break in September, but NOPE. Still busy. Insecure 

In other news...
Pokemon Alphabet has reached 10,000+ favorites! 

The Pokemon Alphabet by arkeis-pokemon

That's really awesome. I want to thank you all for such a positive reception. I hope I can do something else just as great in the future.


One last thing...what do you guys think of the Mega Kanto Starters?

There are so many varying opinions on them. Some people only like one and dislike the other two, some like all of them, and some hate them all.
I think they would each look fine if it wasn't for some small detail. Mega Venusaur doesn't need a flower on its forehead, Mega Charizard doesn't need little wings on its arms, and Mega Blastoise could do without the pointed chin.
