Hey guys! I have sent emails out to or otherwise spoken to everyone who has thus far expressed interest in the gw2 sketch commissions! 

I’m gonna have to (at least temporarily) close them for now to finish up the ones I’ve gotten!  Thank you guys so much, you’re all awesome. <33

May open one or two slots again afterwards, depending on how things look!

HI GUYS! To celebrate the impending arrival of the wardrobe feature in Guild Wars 2, I am offering deep discount sketch commissions for Guild Wars 2 players who want art of their characters! 

GW2 players will be able to pay for their commissions with in-game gem store gifts rather than dollars, potentially knocking 20 dollars off what I’d normally charge for sketches. See here for items I’m willing to trade for: http://tinyurl.com/oyb8zo6 (things I have received already are crossed off!)

I normally wouldn’t offer commissions in exchange for digital goods, but I am very interested in grabbing some of the gem skins for when the wardrobe is implemented!  This is a very limited time offer!

If you are interested, check out this handy dandy form covered in adorable upset fish.

This little fellow is a juvenile gargoyle! Gargoyles are soft and fluffy when they’re young, but a steady diet of their favorite stones will help them develop the tough hide they’re known for.

Gargoyles are extremely loyal companions, kept by humans for their ability to ward off evil.

Jungle gargoyles in particular, with their already brightly-colored skin beneath an earthy layer of fur, are often adorned with decorative paints and kept as temple guardians, where they are fed and housed for generations.

This gargoyle is a completely hand-made doll. Its body is made of faux fur, faux leather and super soft Minky fabric. Face and claw details are cast in urethane from original sculpts and hand-painted with acrylic paints. The tail tip is needle felted from wool. Its necklace is made of dyed jasper, freshwater pearls, plastic details, and a chunk of real obsidian secured with a thin leather cord.

Sits 11” tall from heel to eartip.

This doll is an art piece, and has not been rated for children.


Painted Jungle Gargoyle is currently FOR SALE.

I don’t consider myself an artist, but most of my friends are, and I’m married to one. Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of behavior that ranges from awkward to outright unacceptable. Here are some dos and don’ts to ensure that your experience with an artist is a good one for both parties. This is…

Yes.

I know it’s unrealistic to expect every online interaction to be perfect but stuff like this can help folks not be “that person” if they are trying to have a positive interaction with an artist they dig.

I try not to see that stuff as malicious and most of the time it’s just folks not knowing better or thinking about it too much, so if it’s something you have done don’t sweat it ( we are all guilty) But when it’s a repetitive daily thing, or boundaries are constantly pushed and it seems like no one is really putting thought into behavior or don’t seem to think about you as a person with feelings- yes it can really wear you down.

Again, don’t sweat it- but learn from it! :)
