Commission Information

:bulletred: = High priority (i.e. other person has given me their half/paid/on a deadline)


Stuff I Owe

Commission: Colored sketch of a random character.

Flat color commission of her and the 10th Doctor.
Haven't started.
Not paid.

Trade of Bohiel in the Portal universe.
Haven't started.

:bulletred::iconknallis-sillan: (fully paid)

-digital coloured shading, $30
The Hat Man with a smirk, surrounded by tendrils of darkness similar to the artwork from Scary Stories, the children's books.… reference
The Hat Man is medium height, a bit lanky in an anime kind of way, has brown hair, and has a very coy, knowing kind of smirk. He wears a brown suit, a fedora hat, and his pants have pin-stripes.

-2x digi color sketch $20
1) Knallis using Dark and Wind magic. Dark magic is of course, blackish looking and will look like the shadow underneath Knallis coming to life with whips. It should look cool and stylish, as opposed to alarming and unsettling like the much thinner, veinier magicks the Hat Man will have in his image.
The wind will be clearish gusts, perhaps with a slight blue hue? Or not.… ref
Knallis has long black hair riddled with slit ends. It goes down to his knees. His cloak is fastened around his shoulders by a buckle. He wears a poet shirt with the etching of a willow tree in silver. Think about the door to Moria in Lord of the Rings. Wears boots, a robe underneath his cloak, and finally black pants. His eyes are sunset-red, all New Mexico style eyes in this guy.
His eyes were inspired by Edward Elric's eyeshape from Fullmetal Alchemist but tend to look more somber.

2) A picture of Knallis's rival, the warrior Princess Cinderella, nicknamed Cinder. She is a gray cat with hair tied up in an elegant tight bun and wears a black rose in her hair. She has luminescent blue eyes, and wears a black, gotchic dress. She often as a coy, mischevious, calmly smile on her face. Despite Knallis being the "stronger" magician, her experience and skill makes her a superior magician, and Knallis might never be able to surpass her.
Audrey listened to me describe her once and decided to draw a picture of a cat for herself and /just so happened to make it look like my character/ and said it was hers instead, but then never drew the character ever again nor gave it a name.
[reference is put wherever you end up putting it--I sent it via messenger]

-sketchdump $10
Artist's persona interpretations of characters I've described in the past. Including Beserker, Jess, Jenny, The Hat Man, etc.

Inked commission of Fox and Fiona sitting on a couch together, him holding one or both of her ankles, giving her toes a nuzzle/sniff with a tent in his jeans as her sneakers and socks are discarded on the floor. She'd either have an expression of disgust looking at him or his tent, or alternatively a look of "I can't believe I got talked into this..." as if she lost a bet playing against him in a videogame. Fiona has a muffin top. Sketched. Not paid.

Inked fourth and fifth foot commission. Haven't started. Not paid.

Commission of a vibrantly colored anthro moth chewing on a sweater and looking guilty. Base colors.

A Fine Mess I Find Myself In...

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 17, 2014, 3:02 PM

Rantings of a Neurotic Artist

Things have not been well in the Nero Kingdom lately. First off, as some people know, I HAD job offer, which is kinda the whole reason I returned to the US (also I was out of money and had only one month until my study permit expired), but I'm not really sure what happened on their end, but they haven't been answering my emails so I've been kinda freaking out and keep applying to other places, but I'm having a difficult time trying to find studios. I keep running short on places to apply TO. I know there's more out there, I'm just having trouble finding them.
I'm trying really hard to find myself a job here, if only part-time, to help bulk up my account, but as everyone in the US knows, the job market is still in shambles, so it might take a while for something to come up, even with my education and experience.
Also my mom's been really pushing me to try online classes, which I am all for, but I need to do a bit more research before making my final decision, but there's also a big issue of what I need before I can really commit to online classes. It's an issue I've been ignoring for years, but with all this stuff, it's becoming a bit clearer for me now and I can't ignore anymore:
I... I think I need a new computer.
To be perfectly honest, this computer had a shaky start. It was a pretty basic Gateway with Windows Vista. As everyone remembers, Windows Vista sucked. So we got it upgraded to Windows 7. Unfortunately, turns out that wasn't a wise idea. I took it in some years ago because I was having issues with it just running Photoshop. The guy I saw said something about the fact that the hard drive was all screwed up because of the switch-over to operating systems. I got new RAM sticks and it was fine for a while, but now that I'm looking into doing things like animation and working on more high-res images, I'm gonna need something a little bit better than basic RAM. I might be able to just wipe the system and see how that fares, but it's kinda risky. I'm almost afraid it'll make it WORSE.
I can live with this system for the time being, I can even work on my laptop is need be, but if I wanna get serious about Imp and working freelance, I'm going to need a new hard drive down the line. The fact that this computer can only run for one hour before it starts choking and freezing really throws a monkey wrench in my workflow.
There's also the issue of the internet just being awful, but that's something else entirely.

I'll get to the point, then: I need money. As always, I have my Etsy and StorEnvy for buttons and prints. RedBubble and my new (slightly bare) Society6 have posters, prints, shirts, and a bunch of other stuff. And, as always, I take commissions. Oh, and I sell prints on dA doncha know?
I was also considering starting a Patreon for Imp, but we'll see in a while, yeah? Gotta think about rewards and all that good stuff.

Was kinda hoping my next big purchase would be a Cintiq or Yinova, but FFFFFFFFRICK THAT. I'll be okay with my Intuos if my desktop ISN'T running like molasses.

New account, hmm?
NeroStreet Dec 29, 2013  Professional Filmographer
If you're referring to my previous SN of cinda7, it's not a new account, just a new username.
I felt like I needed a new start of sorts. UoU
DarkRuby731 Dec 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh I felt the same, that's one of reasons why I made a new account... Sorry about that ^^; but anyway, do you still remember me...? I was Vella777 or something like that :)
NeroStreet Dec 29, 2013  Professional Filmographer
This is embarrassing, but I can't say as I remember. ^^; You might have to be more specific. 
But hey, welcome back to DA.

Hey Nero. Did you get my note?
NeroStreet Dec 19, 2013  Professional Filmographer
I did, and I even read it, but I haven't had time to sit down and write a critique. I did say it would take a while, and you just happened to catch me while I'm preparing to go back to the US for the holidays.
Ah, right. Sorry to interrupt. Hope you enjoy going back to ''muricah!'. I tried to write it so you could visualize it in your head comic-book style. I made it cute at the end too. Hope that was okay.
NeroStreet Dec 21, 2013  Professional Filmographer
Survived to flight to 'MURIKA. XP Good thing, bad storms everywhere.
Finally settled in and sent a reply to you.
