For commissioners:
If you've emailed me and I still need to respond, poke me. Been herding cats lately. :)
Just asking since it has come to my attention that end of March is going to be filled with so much awesome.

Louisville has a Comic Con coming up --
Actors like the one who portrayed Drogo from Game of Thrones will be there
As well as Merle and Shane from Walking Dead (Daryl was to be there but had a last minute cancellation apparently).

Up in New Albany (hop and a skip away) apparently is HUMANS vs ZOMBIES giant game.  Basically nerf weaponry (guns, swords, etc) in a giant game of tag.  I'm excited and totally going.



If you're in the area and need more info on any of the events, let me know!

Temporary journal :)
NOTE: I will update folks sometime after work today about details / get details and all that good stuff.
For those who missed a slot, I'm terribly sorry :X  I don't want to bite off more than I can chew, but will do my best to accommodate in the future.

First come, first serve.  I will do my best (if this round goes smoothly) to potentially do more slots in the future.  



NOTE: These prices are base.  They may flux if scene/character is overly complex.

I'm trying to give a bracket the best I can given that I don't know details. Simple characters I'll give breaks on.  Overly complex / time consuming will raise price.

  • Full Digital Paintings with single or multiple characters - Please contact for pricing!
  • OTHER: See me if you've something that does not fall in category.



*PLEASE NOTE:
All transactions are digital. You will receive high res copies of your orders.
Please note if you want something shipped (IE: original linework) it can be done but you are to pay postage/handling. 



Thank you all for interest!~ :)
Hey there!

I will be opening commission slots tomorrow evening ( 3/6 at 6 PM).
I will have 6 slots open (and potentially more down the road).
Each commission = 1 slot. 
If you want more than one slot, please specify.

NOTE: These prices are base.  They may flux if scene/character is overly complex.
I'm trying to give a bracket the best I can given that I don't know details. Simple characters I'll give breaks on.  Overly complex / time consuming will raise price.  
If you are not sure where you fit in a price bracket, now is the time to NOTE me with estimates and details!


  • Icons - $25  - Large and small icons (two sizes for you)  Colored, textured/natural background
  • Detailed Pencil Sketches - $20-35 (cleaned up linework) This depends if background/complexities
  • Paperdolls / Flat shading characters - $45
  • Detail Color limited and/or no background - $55-60

Thank you all for interest!~ :)
Testing the waters to get an idea of interest.
I prefer doing commissions in batches, so trying to get a feel for if folks want art from me, and what type of projects people want me to do (this will determine how many slots I offer).

Paperdolls.
Small scenes
Group scenes.
Complex or simple, etc.

This is also a good chance to price-quote me as well.

Paperdolls start at $45 --- They can go up for highly detailed/complex characters.  If unsure if yours falls in this category, please let me know.

TRADE:
I'm currently in the market for Game of Thrones season 3 on DVD.
Let me know if interested in doing a trade like this for something, too.


Thanks!
 Wednesday, October 23rd from 05:00 to 11:00 FR Server Time

(5AM to 11AM PST/8AM to 2PM EST)



Just a heads up because I know a lot of folks wanted to play but were locked out during last window.

Site: flightrising.com/index.php



PS: Since I didn't know this upon signing up, what flight you pick determines eye color of your hatched nests.

Plague - Red
Earth - Brown
Nature - Medium Green
Wind - Light Green
Lightning - Teal
Ice - White
Shadow - Dark purple
Arcane - Deep pink
Fire - Orange
Light - Pale yellow


Think I got them all.  Good luck. See you there.
PS: Plague flight is coolest.  /biased. :)
With Flight Rising down for maintenance, thought I'd share for folks who do play the game and have accounts there.  By the way, congrats and welcome to the 4500 people that joined the ranks yesterday!

I've been fortunate enough to finally get a pair of Skydancers.  I will have limited reserves/sales sometime in the future for them.  They are triple gened:

Guaranteed to have:
:star: Primary: Clown or Tiger
:star: Secondary: Shimmer or Stripes
:star: Tertiary:  Gembond



 



Midas Touched - Golden Gilded Skydancers


For those who are on the site, got a dragon or pair you're proud of?
Feel free to share. :)
Flight Rising: flightrising.com/index.php

Hey there.  Decided I'm after a few things.  If you play and are interested in a commission trade, let me know!  If you've an item and want to trade, I'm pretty flexible.

Hunting down:

2 Gembond Scroll
1 Ridgeback Scroll
1 Pearlcatcher Scroll    (for a gold/ivory pearlcatcher, what genes work best?)
2 Shimmer Scroll
2 Iridescent Scroll
1 (impossible) Imperial Scroll

The current project for me:

Guardian Female  -- Would look stellar as imperial, but that's impossible.
Primary Caribbean Basic - turned Iridescent
Secondary Spring Basic - turned Shimmer
Tertiary Sunshine Basic - turned Gembond


Thanks! Happy nerding :)

If you want to reach me in game there, please feel free to find me as Miloki there.
:heart:
Figured I'd toss this out there since I got sort of sucked in to this too.
I just started, so funds on that site are nearly nothing.  I'm looking to obtain a few things.

If anyone is interested in trades of art for FR things, let me know.  We'll hammer something out.

Feel free to DA note me, or PM me as Miloki there.

PS:
If there are any tutorials you're looking for me to create, please feel free to ask below and I will see what can be done.
These are the people who help artists create beautiful submissions. Their hard work and efforts are art in their own right, and I know I'm grateful for their talents.

Just a quick blurb about where some of my textures come from. A lot of my textures come from redheadstock

All brushes I like, intend on using, or have used, are located in my Brush Folder found here:

Have fun and enjoy! :)

:butterflytwo:Great Commissioners:butterflytwo:


I'm going to tell you, that the only reason I've continued doing paperdolls and other commissions is not because people want them.  I've no problem -stopping- doing them.

The only thing keeping me going on them is the fact the people I've met and worked with throughout this commissioning project have been not just wonderful, but phenominal!  I don't often make public posts praising commissioners, but I'm going post this list, and transfer it to also the artist aware boards.

I'm truly grateful for the patience, humor, playfulness, kindness, generosity, and comradely of the people I've worked with. I consider myself extremely fortunate, especially with the horror stories from other artists/friends I hear.  ANY artist would be highly fortunate to have any one of the people on my list as a commissioner!   

Thank you for making the commissioning process wonderful!

Thank you guys for being such wonderful commissioners!  May other commissioners follow in your footsteps.  ;)



==============================================

:butterflytwo:Brush Credit:butterflytwo:


Now. I do not want to be one of those types of people who takes people's photoshop brushes and neglects citing where I get them.  HOWEVER, I fear that in the future, since I'm now downloading so many, it would be near impossible to list all the brushes and sources per image I do.  I'm hoping that making a list here will not only give credit, but promote these talented brush-makers.

I, in the past, have not been able to use photoshop brushes outside the ones already supplied in the program. Why?  It is simple.  For the longest of times, I had only Photoshop Elements 2 to play with.  It is only through a recent ability, and by :iconwailingwolf: I was able to obtain Photoshop CS2.   

I'm now finding myself experimenting with backgrounds more, and I'd love resources. So I've looked through DA. I'm trying to :+fav: all brushes I DL so those that view my work can go back and see where the brushes originated from.   My apologies to people if giving mass credit like this is not enough.  I just don't think I have the ability to even remember when or whose brush I'll be using in the future.  

Never the less, the list of talented brush makers
