Okay so a while ago I said I'd post this... These are just some pitures I've been commissioned to do for a lady who found me through various connections (ahahahaha MAKE FRIENDS, IT WORKS TRUST ME O.O )
Basically her original request was for her son as a super hero (so she could hang the pictures in his room.) I asked what kind of heros he likes, She gave me some examples. Batman, Spiderman, The Hulk and Wolverine. So... I got to work making a Batman and Robin piece. But in curiosity, i started doing a couple of the others too.
And now she wants all three with a fourth of her nephew as the Flash.
Its going to be a loooonggg project, but well worth it! Heres my concept art!
Please excuse the... execution. XD They are works in progress and will change.
I agree having friends is a good thing. Friends and friends of friends and online FB friends have been to date all my sales (and they are meager). The first time I sell to a complete stranger I'm going to do a happy dance. I'm definitely not in it for the money. There is no way I could break even on my paintings, but I so do love the idea of someone liking my work well enough to want to buy it.
@TerryCurley It'll happen! haha I never thought it would happen to me though... I usually just sold to people I knew, but I never got a real commission out of it. But this one came through from a guy I met at a new years convention - Told me he owned a 3D printer and was looking for an artist to make designs for him. It wasnt till later this year he realised the designs I was making were too detailed and he couldnt use them till he upgraded the printer, but he had a customer he was talking to about artwork and somehow he mixed my artwork into the conversation hahaha I guess i got lucky
