Hello Lovely people of the community that is Art. I have an announcement to make for a friend in need.
*** THEY'RE ALL TAKEN Thanks people! ***
** I am opening up 3 commission slots for portraits of anyone's favorite or personal character **, seen from a frontal angle like my portraits thus far (fav.me/d6hp5s7 , fav.me/d71a1ce & fav.me/d6sr3be ). The price range for these portraits would be 100 - 200 euros each. I am willing to negotiate a lower price, but that would mean the time spend on the portrait will be less as well.
The profit of the portraits will be given to my friend and her family.
The quality of the portraits will be between fav.me/d6sr3be andfav.me/d71a1ce depending on the final price of the image.
A dear friend of mine once gave me classes on painting the human face, ultimately launching me into a thinking process which helped me improve my knowledge of the human face by great heaps. Painting a fan-art portrait at the end of the classes of an anime, followed up by another fan-art portrait for the same anime series half a year later is what helped me get my internship in London (and hopefully a permanent job for a good foreseeable time). The gratefulness for this I cannot express enough, and unfortunately I never properly took the opportunity to thank her for this, for if it wasn't for her classes, these portraits wouldn't have been made, and I'd still be sitting around in my old room at my parents place. Nothing wrong with that, but moving forward like this is better than good.
Unfortunately this week she found herself in a painful situation, along with her family (death in close family), and could use any support sent her way, be it emotional or financial. (here is her DA journal on the situation;fav.me/d7oseg8)
While I find it difficult to emotionally help people in these situations, I know I can do the second, but for that I'd love to ask the help of all of you, because I'm sure it would mean more to both me and her, and I'd be able to bring smiles on other peoples faces in the process. A smile is worth a lot.
Unfortunately as the situation is rather immediate and they kinda need the help right this moment, those commissioning would have to be willing to part with the full amount before I even start working on the pieces. The completion time of all 3 portraits would range from 1 month to 2 months. Luckily I have previous commissioners to attest that I provide what I promise, may it take a while at times!
*** PM me for the commissions! ***
Ps. the friend I speak of is a lovely young lady named Suzanne Helmigh who has done enough for the community thus far to deserve no less than a helping hand.
Pps. She's working on an awesome book! >;o check it out, it's called Caldyra.
