We recently had a video game themed CI release over at Gaia Online. I was asked to create a parody illustration based on a certain stealthy video game character, who just happens to be the hero of my favorite video game series!
This was also my debut illustration for Gaia Online! Although I have been working here for going on two years now, this is the first opportunity I’ve had to make an illustration for the main site. Cool!
If you’ve seen this character on Gaia, you’ll notice his colors are different here. These are the original colors I came up with, which were later adjusted so that they would better match some of the items on our site.
It turns out I don’t have access to a high res version of this color scheme from home, so I’ll have to post that version later.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun working on this homage to one of my favorite heroes. I hope you like it to!
This will probably make your blog look ugly, but whatever; I’m sure your blog is ugly already.
Anyway, here’s the poop: I lucked out this year and managed to score a 4-day pass to San Diego Comic Con via a really awesome friend. I’ve already sussed out hotel accommodations and put in my time off at work. The only thing left to do now… is pay for everything. Which is a little difficult to do at the moment considering that I just moved last week and have very little money to spend on things that aren’t rent and food.
This will be the first I’ve actually been able to go to Comic Con since 2009. It’s one of my favorite conventions ever, and it would really mean a hell of a lot to me to be able to go again and see all of my friends (and potentially meet new ones), especially considering the amount of bullshit I’ve put up with over the last year.
Despite already having a pretty hefty commission queue, I absolutely refuse to BEG for money so I can go to a convention. (As much as I want to go, I know that conventions are not are a necessity nor an emergency.*) I really do want to go to this, and I’m more than willing to work for it. I did it in 2008, and I can do it again.
My goal is to make $1200 or more in six weeks. This will cover hotel costs, airfare, food, as well as cover any additional expenses. (COUGHaquabatsconcertCOUGH)
The two types of commissions above are the ONLY commission types I’m accepting right now. If you’re interested in commissioning me for something else, you’ll have to wait until after Comic Con to do so. Sorry, but I want to make this whole process as painless as possible (or as painless as it possibly CAN be, which I’ll explain here in a minute).
If you’ve been to my art blog, then you’ll know that my art covers a lot of different subject matter, so your commission can be pretty much anything you want: furries, humans, robots, object heads, monster girls, monster boys, robots, Homestucks, WHATEVER. As long as what you’re asking for ISN’T PORN, then I’ll most likely draw it.**
