Commission Favorites
Commission Favorites

I had a few people ask about what sorts of things they could ask for as commissions, and I figured that rather than try to explain “the sky is the limit, no seriously, I have drawn Protoss fighting dragons and time-traveling Abe Lincolns”, I would simply show you. These are a few of my favorite commissions from the Christmas sale!

The first two were a lot of fun, because I don’t often get to draw custom Weregeek forms for people. The baby geek was something I’d never drawn before, and a chance for me to really crank up the cuteness factor. The second geek is actually a custom card for the game Falling, and wasn’t the only one that the person commissioned. Drawing Weregeeks falling from the sky was hilarious fun!

The second two were challenging, and I always relish a challenge. I mean – a werewolf knight fighting a dragon? AWESOME! And inking tiger stripes, while time consuming, is actually pretty fun.

The third was probably one of my favorite commissions of all time. It’s all of the characters from a Dresden Files RP group, and a few of the players (and possibly the GM) were there in the chat to watch me draw it. I’m a big Dresden Files fan, and drawing the characters made me wish I could join in with their gaming group!

So – there you have it. Whether you buy a commission online or in person at a convention, feel free to come up with something really wacky, ’cause I’m always up for a challenge!

    I Don’t know the Dresden Files but the guy in the middle of the last panel kinda looks like James Rolfe. Awesome!

    Been reading Weregeek for a while and it always makes me laugh, so thank you for that!

    I’m dying to get some character portraits (our characters) done for a gift for the hubby, but I have to wait til after I get paid (sometime between Feb 1st and 5th) to do it. ; ;

    Ooh, Dresden Files RPG? I’ve been running a campaign for that for the last five months, and I’ve got six PCs as well. Been lots of fun!

    So, there’s four girls and two guys; I’m debating what each of their high concepts are, but it’s impossible to actually figure that out. Lots of fun trying, though!

    hmm… I wonder how the Weregeeks would react to a Dresden campaign… the more I think about it, the more awesome I think it’d be. Please? Maybe further down the line?

    The Dresden picture makes me wonder which one is the Wizard.

    The moment I saw the Dresden Files group I whooped.

    Then proceeded to figure each character out. I know the last one is a Warden :D.

    I have an idea for a commission, but I would like to know if you are able to draw it before I order it. Where should I send/post the description?

    I tried to order a commission today, but the site doesn’t seem to be working. Are all the commissions sold out already?

    Oh, man! I really wish I could afford to commission you! I’d love to see what my LARP character would look like!

    Ceallo – The answer is almost certainly ‘yes’, but you can send me the description via the contact page if you’d like. 🙂

    Lasselanta – Were you unable to access the store page, or just unable to check out with your order? I am, unfortunately, unable to take credit card orders right now, so if you’d tried to use that as a payment option, the order wouldn’t have worked. I’m trying to get that straightened out as quickly as I can!

    Heartson, Jairephix – I do commissions regularly, so even if you miss this sale, you can still commissions from me. Just send me an email!

    I actually commissioned the Dresden piece, it’s awesome to see our group here again! 🙂

    Since people were curious – we run our campaign over Skype, since the group’s scattered across North America.

    From left to right they are an apprentice shaman, a vampire, a hapless librarian, a wizard apprentice who swears he’s not a warlock (but isn’t that exactly what a warlock would say?), a dragon’s mortal servant, and – yes – a warden!
