Half of an art trade with thoughtsupnorth of her character Eve! Ladies with horns, y’all, I couldn’t resist. This was a BLAST to draw — hope I did justice to her impeccable fashion sense. Thanks for trading with me!
knights! we went to medieval times on friday. the black and white knight had the best hair, red and yellow was a ham (and kicked our guy’s ass in the last fight, it was devastating) and the yellow knight had a ponytail that would make khal drogo proud
Please, I desperately need to make money to pay the power bill within a few days otherwise we might get kicked out. I’m not asking for charity, I’m asking for work. My husband’s been laid off for two weeks now and we’ve been solely surviving on the little left from my last batch of commissions.
We pay rent and sometimes help with the power bill to live with my husband’s grandmother, but we haven’t been able to pay her anything since my husband hasn’t had any work. She told us if we can’t manage to help pay the power bill this month, we’re out on the streets. We’ve only just gotten to a point where we are getting back on our feet. My husband won’t have work again until next week and we have to give her something within a few days in order to stay here.
I hate putting pressure on everyone, but if you can - reblog, let some friends know, anything helps. Please, I really don’t want to be homeless again. I’ve had enough of it in my life.
Email me at email@example.com if you’d like a commission!! Thanks!
A thing for justjingles' speedpaint prompt, “Out there on the water.” I started this at work and lost track of the time I spent on it but I’m pretty sure I broke the 45 minute rule - speedpaints and environments are soooooo not my comfort zone, so I’m hoping to try a few more of these.
I was rather floored by the response to my cursory interest post. So now it’s time to release one some actual details in an official post:
WHAT IT IS: I’m obsessed with this show, and I know other folks are, too. I just want to connect professional and aspiring fantasy illustrators with a common interest by printing a book of fan art celebrating Game of Thrones.
I am looking to have a list of 100 artists. I have a number of professional peers confirmed already, but the deadlines are far away, and it’s hard to say what’ll happen! With 100 artists - even if if half drop out - there will still be enough content for a book.
WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR: Composed illustrations (any style!) and professional-level technical skill (anatomy, lighting, color, etc.). You need to fill a finished page and tell a story. If you have a particularly good sample, please point it out.
HOW TO APPLY: Please send me a gallery or blog link or samples through my e-mail (gracepfongATgmailDOTcom). Do NOT start drawing without approval, expecting it to go into the book!
REQUIREMENTS: All pieces must be new for the book and not posted online until the Kickstarter begins. Must reflect book or show canon. Must be SFW.
TIMELINE: Deadline for Application is July 7, 2014. Accepted Applicants notified by July 31. Thumbnails due August 31. Sketches due October 31. Final pieces due December 31. Kickstarter will run from March 1-31, 2015 (in time for Season 5!). Product should be shipped by the end of Season 5.
COMPENSATION: You will receive a free copy of the book and a flat fee (TBD). There may be a chance of additional exposure. Amateur applicants can also receive critique to help them with the illustration process. You and a guest will also receive an invite to my next Game of Thrones Feast (in Los Angeles, CA), but you have to provide your own transportation and housing. Any extra profit will be given to charity (TBD).
Note, if the project receives a cease-and-desist from the owners of Game of Thrones, the project will be canned without compensation for anyone…. :(
ABOUT ME: I am a programmer and illustrator from Los Angeles, California. I’ve successfully crowd-funded two artbooks (and contributed/consulted on a few more), and after two years of doing nothing, I wanted to try something bigger. I just really like this show. As project manager, I will handle deadline planning, graphic designing, campaign funding, and product disbursement, so all you have to do is e-mail me a file!
