Alistair by Nero749
I just wanted to mess around with that pencil brush again and as I'd just been playing Dragon Age (Inquisition and Origins) this happened. I'd like to believe Alistair will be in the next one as well, that the Wardens are splitting in two between those who want change and those who don't and he (or Hawke if you chose them to escape the Fade with of course) will be leading the Wardens pushing for change.

(Yes wings are so predictable but I just love unexplained wings in paintings, haha. Anyway it's supposed to look like the wings on the shields the Wardens carry.)
The Witcher 3: Triss by Nero749
The Witcher 3: Triss
Clearly I like the alternative outfits for the women in The Witcher 3. Triss' outfit isn't even slightly practical for what she has to do but it looks amazing. So I had to paint her wearing it. Also, yeah the flowers are predictable but I still like it.
Dragon Age: Inquisition by Nero749
Dragon Age: Inquisition
This is something I kinda planned from the start but it was a bit daunting having to paint all their faces in here. I wasn't planning on it being so movie poster (you know the kind I mean), but I guess that was unavoidable. I did originally plan to leave the Inquisitor as just a hand but I wanted the Inquisitor I think of as the Inquisitor in there (you might notice she's the same one as in the prosthetic arm - well weapon - one I did a while back).

There is a logic to why they are where they are, like the advisors and Cassandra  directly beneath the Inquisitor, Solas being all ominous, the green stand-in fade stuff being more lighted around the mages and Cole (and Cole being less visible) etc.

I might replace the front of my copy with this as someone pointed out the mark is on the wrong hand in the official artwork and now I can't not see that. Or maybe I'll just use this as a poster.

I did save a version where the Inquisitor is just represented by a hand, I'll probably upload that one to my tumblr.
Cullen and Trevelyan by Nero749
Cullen and Trevelyan
Had to because I just had to watch a video on youtube about what happens to Cullen if you (for some godforsaken reason) forced him to stay on lyrium indefinitely. It is not happy and I'd avoid it. (If you have more self-control than I have.)
At any rate, where is this? Maybe at night at the Winter Palace? I don't know, I was just going for happy feelings, haha! I hadn't even realised I'd automatically drawn her left arm before it was finished!

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

Many thanks for adding my image to your favorites! .:Happy star:. From an artist of your caliber it's extra special.

You're very welcome! I thought your Dorian was absolutely stunning and I love the mood of the piece!
olivegbg Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Drawing Dorian is always a treat. The only difficulty is not making him 'too pretty'. He has such good facial features it's very tempting...
Nero749 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015  Professional General Artist
Hehe yeah. I do love his face it has a lot of character to it.
