Literature
Ne Quaesieris, Non Dico Ch18 - Why
The worst of it is that he doesn’t hate Fenris at all, he reflects the next morning - or at least, he presumes it’s morning. It could be the middle of the night, for all they know. He’s lost all sense of time; he has no idea even of the date any more.
No, he doesn’t hate Fenris, and that’s what makes all of this all the more painful. He’d dreamed of hearing an endearment from Fenris’ lips; maybe if those slavers hadn’t picked right then to interrupt, he might have heard one before it all went to the Void.
Would it have changed what happened after? He suspects not.
He knows he was being unfair. The elf did apologise - not once, but twice, in the space of only a few minutes; and what did Anders do?
He sighs to himself, aware of Hawke’s sudden keen glance as she turns her head to stare at him; but he can’t bring himself to even begin to attempt to explain any of the confused and unhappy thoughts running throu

Literature
Ne Quaesieris, Non Dico Ch17 - Amatus
Fenris feels light-headed from blood loss, a dull ache running through him like a dim memory of the agony that punched through him before. He could blame his slip of the tongue upon that, perhaps - except he doesn’t want to excuse it for anything other than what it is - the truth. He still loves Anders.
But as the mage remains silent, he finds himself struck by doubt. Perhaps he has been wrong. Perhaps whatever fleeting feelings Anders may once have had for him truly have been extinguished - killed off by his attack upon the man, destroyed by his own rage.
He has erred. Anders’ silence is answer enough.
“Maker’s balls, elf, I was sure you and Blondie were both dead for sure!” exclaims Varric as he and Hawke crouch down either side of him; Hawke reaches behind him to touch Anders’ shoulder.
“Anders? Maker - he’s out cold!” exclaims Hawke. And just like that, all Fenris’ doubts are replaced with concern and worry for the

ArkadyRose's Profile Picture
ArkadyRose
Arkady Rose Gerard
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
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".

Activity


Life has become exceedingly complicated as of late. I'm basically getting no time to just doodle and sketch for my own amusement; it seems that any spare time for art has to be dedicated to (hopefully) paying work - generally t-shirt designs for Redbubble and Spreadshirt. I'm squeezing in writing time whenever I can.

This is all because I've had to withdraw my youngest daughter from her school; she'll be 10 in a couple of weeks, has high-functioning autism - and has been the victim of bullying by the head teacher of her school who repeatedly goads my daughter into full-blown meltdowns or putting her into places/situations which will result in her having a meltdown due to sensory overload. She even did this right in front of my husband!

Anyway, we're putting in a formal grievance against her and transferring my daughter to a different school that has excellent ASD provision (in fact a friend of mine actually trained several members of staff there and has vouched for the school), and in the meantime I'm homeschooling my daughter. This is taking up all my time however, so there'll likely be even less art from me than usual.

People interested in following my fanfic can find all my work over on AO3. I can also be found on Me on Tumblr!
Howling Wolf
Playing with different brushes for line art. This one started out as one of a bunch of sketches I did for someone who turned out to be a timewaster who offered to pay for the commission in "exposure". Ha ha ha... no, fuck off.

Tree of Life
Original reference was a dead oak that stands by Hollow Ponds - on the southernmost edge of Epping Forest, London, UK. Seemed fitting to give it new life in a knotwork design.

Available on Redbubble and Spreadshirt.

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
