I commissioned Nix to draw me a Terriermon the way models pose in shampoo commercials. I had that idea every time I was thinking about that image ZiPo drew as my website logo and that I vectorized in order to engrave it on a thermos (I think it actually fits a cup more since it's more wide than it is tall). She thought I was talking about my character, and I didn't object, but I did ask her to make a version with a regular Terriermon. Apparently, she considered it the primary version, because it's the one she posted everywhere and it has the highest resolution. Although it's a simple colored sketch, so not much detail is lost in other version.
Just 19.5 months after placing the order Nix started drawing my commissions. This is the first one out of currently 11 (!) that I put into her backlog. Some of those aren't even relevant anymore… Anyway, my first commission was my pokesona as a member of Team Skull from Pokemon Sun/Moon.
Here's that image I never posted. Wow, it's been more than two years since ZiPo has drawn it. I never liked the image because colors seemed too dirty for me. I mean, there's so much brown, and it looks like Terriermon is covered in dirt. Actually, now that I look at it again, it's not bad at all. The detail is pretty high, the anatomy is fine. Maybe eyes look kinda insect-like. I'm still not a fan of the color scheme, but I actually like this art now.
ZiPo got kinda fed up that I wasn't using Terriermons he made for me (except that old 150x150 image from 2009), especially the one he was kinda proud but I wasn't happy with and never even posted, so when we got together one time and got drunk he decided to remake that Terriermon. And this time the result was pretty good. It's my current avatar for Xbox Live.
Back in April my friends and I had an idea for a custom cup design for our tea parties. My friends helped me brainstorm the design idea, and I then commissioned Nix to draw my characters drinking tea.
I found a reblog of a post by an artist, Zig_M, in need of some money. After thinking for a while, I came up with an idea for a commission. It was four horses of the Apocalypse in MLP style. Sadly, the artist declined payment saying that the commission was too interesting to charge money for it. Then she changed her art group a few times. And her commission practices are confusing.
Hasn't that been a long time? I'm just so lazy nowadays I barely use PC (laptop) anymore. And why would I? Almost everything I need I can do on my phone. Any updates in my boring life I post on VK using the said phone. For games there are consoles. PC games? I barely played them to begin with, and I already played nearly all games I wanted to play to my heart's content. Mainly Borderlands 2 of which I currently have 577 hours of play time. But I guess I'll post a brief update post to bring no one who reads this blog up to date. So, let's open my VK feed and I start ‘splaining.
Wow, it's been a while since I last posted here… I guess a VK profile is enough for me nowadays.
Anyway, I commissioned Nix to draw my pokesona, Glaceon, drinking away his sorrows. Kinda like I do lately…
I've never ever had a pokesona before. Eeveona helped me to come up with species and a design. I'll explain who Eeveona is in my end of the year post.
It's been about 5 months, but Nix finally finished my commission. And boy it was worth the wait! I commissioned “D'Vorah stealing apples from Jax”. Because I adore D'Vorah and I remembered that Jax was a farmer.
A couple of days ago I was talking with my friend ZiPo. He asked me to try end make a vector from one of his sketces, and I agreed. Today I finally had time and energy to sit down and work on it, so I tried and this is what I got. This is ZiPo's OC as Lich King (sorta). The face on the sword is just my little joke.
