Baby Groot by Nero749
Baby Groot
I started to make this right after I saw the movie, he's just too cute! Which I suppose a lot of people felt because there are a lot of baby Groots out there made by fans, haha! But look at his little face, who wouldn't want a baby Groot around the house! I don't sculpt a lot but I really wanted a tiny Groot :P (He's not that tiny actually, he's about 23 cm including the pot.)

Short production report:

I sculpted baby Groot from a pretty cheap clay and then made a mould so I could make a resin version (the clay one was too fragile). I then just painted it with acrylic paint and got the pot from a local store. The sand isn't really sand it's Styrofoam covered in a small layer of some decorative stuff that looked convincing. I haven't glued baby Groot in the pot so I can always get him a bigger one if he outgrows this one.

I'm scared of ending up alone by Nero749
I'm scared of ending up alone
*probably some spoilers below for the game*
The Last of Us is such a great game. I have already played it too many times but it is just so good! I hear they're going to make a movie but honestly this game is already better than any movie about this story can be.

The title is a quote from the game (you can see the cutscene it came from here:…. Ellie tells Sam what her greatest fear is and she has a point as she's immune and no one else is she could end up the last sane person on the planet.

This was also my first painting with my new tablet after my last one died. It's a Wacom Intuos and I can definitely recommend it.
Dragonheart: Draco modelkit painted by Nero749
Dragonheart: Draco modelkit painted
Not sure how to title this? As I only did the paint job?

I got a modelkit from ebay of Draco from Dragonheart (a movie from 1996, in case you haven't seen it). It was just white when I got it (and assembled it, if you want to too it's still on ebay but it will take some modification as the pieces didn't fit all that well).

I used acrylic paint and it probably took me a day or two to paint it. I really love how he turned out especially as I haven't had much practice painting anything other than on a canvas or digitally.

I love dragons and if you do too I can definitely recommend this movie!

(Ignore the cluttered table please, I'm packing and it's where I keep fragile stuff right now.)
BioShock: Songbird Plushie by Nero749
BioShock: Songbird Plushie
I really wanted a Songbird Plushie and didn't like the one they made so I made my own (why is the one they made so different from the game?).

Here's a picture of what it looks like in the game:…

I couldn't find a pattern so I had to improvise. I ended op changing some things and I really like the result!Love 

In case you were wondering: he's made out of a leather bag and jacket I found at the thrift shop. The eyes and beak are made from clay (the baking kind), and the cord is braided from this weird belt like thing I found. I did it all by hand, mainly because I don't have a sewing machine, but also because I can't think of another way to create the seams look.

Tom by Nero749
I was practising a new technique and ended up painting this which turned out really nice!

But if it's important, feel free to note me or email me!

Hello deviants!

My exam week is finally over... and I have some time, so I thought I'd open up commissions for the holidays!
You can ask me anything you want, doesn't have to be fandom related, though maybe you want a portrait of someone else as a character from a show, which would be fine, or just a character from a show, which is fine as well!

You can ask me to work in any of the mediums listed, please note that some will take more time: Digital paintings are the quickest, then charcoal drawings, and then the more elaborate things like art nouveau pictures. (Actually photomanips are the quickest.)

To ask for a commission, you can comment on this journal, note me on DA, or email me at (Also if you just have a question.)
When asking for a commission you can be as precise or vague as you want, but remember the more details you give me, the more it will be 'like you imagined it.'
During the process you'll get plenty of chances to ask for corrections, so no worries.
You can just make up a list yourself if you'd like, or use this form: (just email it to me, attached to your email).

Things to remember:

If you need something for a certain date, remember;

- Digital paintings take about two weeks, could be faster, but lets stay on the cautious side.
           1) If you just want the digital file I can just send it via email, so it doesn't cost any extra time.
           2) If you want a print it will take longer, up to four days to get it to the print company and printed and then the time it takes to ship it to you (see below)
- Charcoal Drawings take about two weeks
           1) I can't predict you would, but if you'd like it in a digital file as well as the drawing itself, ask me, the file will be send via email
           2) The shipping time will depend on your location (see below)
- All other commissions will take a week (for simple vector/ photomanip) or up to three weeks (art nouveau)
           1) Again, if you just want the digital file, the transfer will be immediate
           2) If you'd like to get it printed, you will have to remember printing it can take up to four days, and shipping will depend on your location (see below)

The time it takes to finish a commission depends on how complex the commission is, and how long it takes before you decide on the line art - until you decide it's right and you want it the way it looks.
If you want it printed but want to save time and cost, you can always get the digital file printed yourself, at a company near your own house.

Shipping times*:</b>
* Benelux: 1-2 days
* Germany, France, Denmark: 2-3 days
* Uk: 2-4 days
* (All other countries in) Europe: 4-7 days
* Outside of Europe: 6-11 days

* These are the times the post office lists, but I would play it save and have at least one week of 'extra' shipping time in mind as I've had delays before (customs can cause delays and there are probably factors I don't even account for that can be tricky with international shipping) and I wouldn't want you to get your order too late. Also remember these are business days, so weekends won't count.

Shipping costs*:

Anything under 38x26cm will be:

* Europe: 2-4 euros
* Outside of Europe: 3-5 euros

Anything bigger will be:

* Europe: 6-8 euros
* Outside of Europe: 17-19 euros

Your work is amazing! You do such a wonderful job of capturing and conveying emotions, and your pieces have such a realistic feel.  Truly beautiful! :)
