I feel the main issue with this picture is how you've framed the eye within the picture; the image doesn't follow the rule of thirds. T...

Professional artist working in both traditional and digital media, craftsman, doll customiser/costumer, jeweller, bookbinder.

COMMISSIONS:

SIZE: I generally work on a minimum canvas size of 4Kx4K at 300dpi - however this is open to negotiation depending on whether you want a high print-quality image or something for web work.

TIMESCALE: This depends on what you're after; simple sketches on a blank or parchment-textured background I can do on a 1-2 day turnaround; simple painting of a bust will take 2-3 days. Full-length character portraits will take longer depending on how complicated the outfit is. Full-length portrait with full painted background could easily take me up to a couple of weeks to do. It also depends on how busy I am. I will discuss and agree a timescale with you before any money changes hands.

SUBJECT MATERIAL: This is pretty much up to you with very few exceptions. I'm pretty versatile and can do pretty much almost any subject material; please browse my gallery for samples of my work. Animals are my real forte, but I also enjoy painting portraits. If you're not sure whether I can do justice to a particular subject, please ask!

PRICES:
* Simple sketch, blank or parchment background £30
* Simple portrait - head & shoulders/bust, blank/parchment background £50
* Full-length character portrait, minimal background £65
* Full painting with detailed background £80
* Pet portraits - blank/parchment background, fully-coloured, digitally painted, 300dpi suitable for printing £45
* Logos etc - POA, generally £15-£30 depending on complexity and size required.
* Tattoo designs - POA

PAYMENT: In the UK: Either Bank Transfer to my account or Paypal. Outside UK: Paypal only please. I require a 50% non-refundable down-payment upon agreement of the commission, the remainder to be paid upon completion of the commission. All pictures will be released with a Creative Commons license unless otherwise specified & negotiated. I reseve the right to display a copy of the work as part of my deviantART portfolio.

If you would like to commission me, please send me a Note or email me at arkadyDOTroseATgmailDOTcom with the subject heading of "Commission:DA".

I really need to get back to sketching more. I need to get used to doodling with my graphics tablet now I have ring splints. The stylus feels kind of weird, but I'm sure with practice it'll feel normal again.
Golden the Budgie by ArkadyRose
Golden the Budgie
My 8-year-old daughter was extremely upset this evening to find out her best friend online (with whom she chats and RPs with every day) has quit the website they were both on. To cheer her up, I've painted fanart of her OC, Golden.

PSAn- phishing scammers

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 23, 2015, 4:22 PM


Just to give folks a heads-up - there are scammers leaving notes directing you to an external URL for a "free" DA upgrade. Everything about it stinks of a phishing scam. If you get one of these notes, mark it as spam and do not follow the link. There is no such thing as a "free DA premium upgrade".

Hi Arkady,

How are you?

My name is Lindy Fu. Our company ZQGame is looking for good artwork from talented artists. We have seen this work from your artwork site: [link]. We wonder if we can use it for our game promotional marketing. If so, is the IP yours or somebody else? What the price range would be? Please let us know. We can work on the details later. You can reach me at lindy.fu@zqgame.com.

Thank you very much,

Lindy Fu

Unfortunately the IP of that particular subject belongs to Bioware; it is a piece of fanart depicting the character Anders from Dragon Age 2. However I would be willing to accept a commission for a similar piece featuring an original character of either your or my own specifications.

A sample list of my commissions prices is available here, together with contact details.
