Sketch + Marker Commissions

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 2, 2015, 11:45 AM

Because of the work I've been doing on my Teasel illustration project, I re-discovered that I really, really enjoy sketching with pencil crayon and then using markers over the top. So I am offering these little character bust commissions to get me back into the whole 'commissions' thing (after I took a break to work on some of my own projects), like the example below:

Cherry Blossom Girl by tea-bug

Interested? What you need to know:

  • Pencil crayon sketch of character of your choice, cleaned up & coloured with markers.
  • On A4 paper - can be mailed out to you for at no extra charge!
  • £10 each \o/
  • Only available until September 24th (after which, my general commissions will be available again, and the price of a commission like this would increase)
  • Payment by PayPal please
  • My usual commission T&Cs apply 

⇢  If you would like one, please note me!
(Just to note, I will be away from Sunday - Thursday next week, but may be able to work on them while I am away. If not I will start on Thurs 10th)

Because of the work I've been doing on my Teasel illustration project, I re-discovered that I really, really enjoy sketching with pencil crayon and then using markers over the top. There is something very satisfying about it! :la:

Anyway, this was pretty much something that I sketched/coloured while watching a movie. (I think it was Reservoir Dogs, which is totally unrelated...) But I like what happened (with the picture...) so I am offering these up as little commissions to get me back into the whole 'commissions' thing after I took a break to work on some of my own projects - info here: Sketch + Marker Commissions
