Commission Info'

An entire custom widget to shamelessly promote my services? I'll take it.

I'm basically always open for an art commission. I don't get commissioned regularly enough at the moment to have any consistent price schemes going, so feel free to drop me a note, tell me what you want, and we can discuss prices and stuff. I tend to take payments through Paypal, rather than points, and there's a chance I might charge a teeny-tiny bit extra for overseas commissions, since Paypal charges a little for those. Nothing major though.

I can keep the commissions private, or post them if you'd like, or you can post them on your account so long as you credit me.

I will draw-

:bulletgreen: Digital pictures of characters, creatures or scenes of your choice, with price dependent on complexity. If you're considering this, you probably have a good idea already of the kind of stuff I'm good at drawing, but that does not at all mean that I wouldn't be up to trying something new or outside of my usual style.

:bulletgreen: Pencil drawings. The above more or less applies, but pencil sketches would probably be cheaper. If you just want a cheap or quick drawing to help visualise what your idea might look like, or if you're looking for something with a more traditional look, this might be for you. I can also ink them to give cleaner lineart, if you'd like.

I will NOT draw-

- Any picture which depicts things I would be uncomfortable drawing. Obviously this depends on the specific subject matter, but just to give you an idea-

:bulletred: Sexual or provocative characters/scenarios. That's not to say I won't draw attractive characters, but nothing that's overly explicit. Basically anything which would warrant a mature content tag.

:bulletred: Any other theme I arbitrarily decide I'm uncomfortable with. Please don't take it personally if I'd rather not draw your commission, it's not because I dislike you. If at all possible, I'll let you know if there's any alterations I could make with which I'd be willing to create it.


The more reference and description you provide, the better I can achieve what you want, so please don't be frustrated if I ask incessantly for details and the like, since it's all just in the cause of getting it exactly right.

If you have any other questions or want me to draw something for you, please don't hesitate to drop me a note and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Hey guys. I know I said that I'd get an update about my trip to Rome out in the next day or two after arriving back. Well, that's a harsh lesson learnt. I'm lazy beyond all reason.

I have, however, finally got round to grabbing some of the marvellous selection of media I took on my exciting adventure, so feel free to take a gander at the finest Italy has to offer.

Firstly, the place I was staying at had a little pond with four fish and two terapins. Terapins are extremely cool.

That Terapin Tho by Epifex

I'd like to just take this point to note again that I am really, truly an exceptionally lethargic being, and that consequently I cannot be rectum'd to resize or photoshop any of these images. Some of them might be best viewed at 50% or something, since they're probably pretty grainy up-close in most cases.

The first day we left for the airport at around 2 am, then we finally arrived at Rome at around midday. We went to see this place which was probably a Roman Catholic church. Probably.

At this point I'd been up for about a day and a half so I was pretty tired, but being the strong, tough, independent man that I am, that proved no issue.

BONUS VIDEO:

 

I would like to devote this part to the coolest saint ever. That's right, I'm talking about Saint Thomas.

Ptdc0060 by Epifex

Just look at that guy. He knows how to have fun.

Once we had a little looksee through there, we basically just ambled around our little area of Rome, which I really don't want to call "seedy," but definitely wasn't the cultural peak of the city. We took in the sights of the copious pizza and ice-cream/gelato places, most of which were surprisingly cheap given the location, but for the most part very little went down.

The next few days, however, were where stuff happened.

There was pasta.

Ptdc0065 by Epifex

There was modern art.

Ptdc0082 by Epifex

There was cheesecake.

Ptdc0177 by Epifex

This was Rome, so of course there were arches.

Ptdc0186 by Epifex

There was an opera as well. While I'm hardly an expert on operas, so I can't say that much as to the quality of this one in particular, I think I can safely say that it would have been far more enjoyable if I actually knew Italian.

Ptdc0198 by Epifex

Then of course there was the Vatican City Which Isn't Really A City But Actually A State, which had so many huge fancy paintings that they all started to look pretty much the same.

Ptdc0230 by Epifex

Picture this like 500 times and you have a decent sense of the Cistine Chapel interior:

Ptdc0277 by Epifex

Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take pics in the room with the famous ceiling paintings of the big G making Adam, but hey, everyone's seen that anyway.

Then there was St. Peter's Square.

BONUS VIDEO:



D-D-D-DOUBLE VIDEO:
(I wasn't sure if the first one had sound so I borrowed my friend's camera just to be safe.



We had a little peek at the big ol' Pantheon. It had some other statues of gods and stuff in it.

Ptdc0377 by Epifex

Then we went to see this fountain which I'm told on good authority is famous in some way, but I remain dubious. It was pretty cool regardless.

Ptdc0399 by Epifex

Oh. Hello Colosseum. I didn't see you over there.

Ptdc0423 by Epifex

Those are some nice underground passages you have there. It would be a shame if they were... completely exposed.

Ptdc0458 by Epifex

This next bit was very cool. Our tour guide was very good. Just casually strolling around among these ANCIENT ROMAN RUINS like it's nothing.

Ptdc0511 by Epifex

This Roman forum worked almost literally like an internet forum. That's probably why they named it a forum. Y'know. After the internet thing. This was where the ancient Roman folks would chill out and spread news, conversation and cat videos.

Ptdc0521 by Epifex

Also that is another archway ^

And this is a tree.

Ptdc0530 by Epifex

Aaaand that pretty much concludes my trip to Rome. It had terapins and pizza.

Hey there. This is my bio.
I'm a miscellaneous amateur doodler. Most of the stuff I put up on here is cartoony or comic in style, often about video games or just obscure real life stuff, but occasionally I'll post the odd bit of realism and stuff. I'm not really consistent, it's just a nice place to dump my 'art.'

I currently reside in England, in a small, innocuous little town by the name of Abingdon.

I'm a pretty intelligent, reasonably talented, very obscure creature. I like art, video games, eating, writing, and thinking.

But seriously, I'm most definitely not a pro' yet, and I am always conscious of how much room more I have to improve, but that's what keeps me drawing. I look at awesome artists' work and thinking "Some day I'll be making stuff like that."

I read and treasure every single comment I get, be it on my profile or submissions. If I don't respond to your comment, it's not because I don't care, it's probably because I just don't want to seem repetitive by constantly saying "Thanks." It pains me to not respond to so many comments, but I simply can't reply to all of them without starting to sound repetitive or hollow. Rest assured though, if you commented on anything of mine, I definitely read it, and if you ask me a specific question I'll try my best to always answer.

I like getting into deep philosophical debates that usually escalate way out of control and turn into a flame-war.

If you want to commission a drawing or something that'd be awesome, I can always use the cash :P

I try to return all llamas I receive. Sharing is caring.

I'm well aware that much of my artwork, particularly the older stuff, is not amazing. Many of my older works are so bad that they actually make me cringe, but I'm going to leave them up in most cases instead of just abandoning them. It shows how much I've improved over time, kind of like a visual diary of practice.

I'll add more about myself when I think of it.

Also, I now have a Twitter. No idea what to do with it, or how it works. But at least it's something more interesting to put in the "Your Website" box than just this page. I literally never use this. There's like, no point whatsoever in following me right now.

Hey! Epifex, quick question, do you have a 3ds? Or pokemon X/Y? 
...I'm just curious because I kind of want to add you....

Not yet. I'm thinking I might get one once SSB 3DS comes out, if reviews and stuff are good. I'd probably get X or Y as well at that point.

Hmm, okay then, but when you do, will you add some of your watchers?

If I get a 3DS, anyone who wants to can feel free to add me. I'll probably make a journal about it or something if/when that happens.

I wish you were one of those artists with no life outside of drawing, but alas, not all of our wishes come true. Even though you really haven't left me on a cliffhanger, the anticipation of the next GCH is killing me.

It's nice you're excited, but I'm afraid you're gonna have to wait another day or two at least. I'm dealing with some pretty important school-related stuff at the minute. Plus I'll have exams coming up in the next few months.
