Just a reminder, my character auction for Taffy will be closing tomorrow!

She's a lovely octopus lady ready to take on an underwater adventure!

In other news, I'm working on a diptych featuring a hare and a lot of feathers. I'm hoping to post a WIP here in just a few, but it'll be a while before I can post the finished product. Keep your eyes peeled for it!

If you'd like to see more WIPs, see what inspires me, and hear about my daily going-ons, consider following me on twitter @ThePrussianBlue (http://www.twitter.com/theprussianblue) or at my tumblr spaces:

Hello everyone!

Need help building your world? Need ideas for extraterrestrial plantlife, exotic weapons, or your villain?

THIS WHAT I DO!

Let me help kickstart hard-to-visualize concepts by being a fresh mind.

For $35 I’ll take your request for a small item - “fantasy insects”, “paladin swords”, “chairs” - and I’ll see that item 6 different ways! Like the examples provided below, these sketches will be monochrome. Once my sketches are complete I’ll clean them up in Photoshop and package it for you (High res image, and a print ready PDF). Then I’ll email you!

In order to help introduce new ideas, each image will be a surprise - but will be within your general parameters: “I have an idea for a cursed chair - it’s made of bone and emeralds, but don’t know how to make that work.”

For $50 I’ll take your request for a character concept - “female ninja”, “bog monster”, “cloud pirate” - and I’ll design that character 2 different ways! These concepts will be full body and as a bonus - I’ll probably include side sketches like facial details. Emphasis will be on providing clear detail for reference. These sketches will be monochrome, but might include minimal shading to provide contrast. Once my sketches are complete I’ll clean them up in Photoshop and package it for you (High res image, and a print ready PDF). Then I’ll email you!

In order to help introduce new ideas, each image will be a surprise - but will be within your general parameters: “I have an idea for a samurai, but he’s a panther with a troubled past and a missing ear.”

For $90 I’ll illustrate a full body image of your original character for your reference! This price point includes a single character image meant to focus on character detail - while still being a finished piece. The piece will be a full page, full body shaded-monochromatic illustration of your character. I’ll be in touch throughout the process to clear my design choices with you and then when I’m done I’ll package it up and send you a high res image, and a print ready PDF!

EXAMPLE:

I’m pretty open to drawing anything! I’ll only exclude a few things, highly detailed architecture, mecha, vehicles…I'm just not very skilled with these things. If your idea includes things of this nature and you'd still like to commission me, we can discuss a reduced rate.

Images will be drawn traditionally with pencil, and then cleaned up in Photoshop with monochrome finishing.

Payments will be through Paypal, and will be expected before you receive your package.

I have FIVE slots available! Email me with your pitch to secure your spot at niphridell (at) gmail (dot) com

I don’t see too many artists offering conceptualization - so I’m hoping I can work with you all!

      Thank you so much! I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't even if I never have a career in the field :)
