Commission me? [link] :heart:

Hi all! Sorry for the extra long hiatus :( A lot of personal shit came up (eugh, gross), but! I will be opening commissions next week so be on the look out for that. I could really, really use the extra cash so I'll be offering all sorts of commissions to get back on track and also support my expensive tea, underwear, and makeup addictions.

This is some sample art of my character Faolan. Long story short, he leaves his family to become a gun for hire to both show them he is strong enough to be proud of and protect them. He's got a very grouchy, snappish exterior and, while he can be kind, he's loathe to have anyone realize he cares about them and will go to great lengths to deny he feels any attachment.



troubleman -- electric guest
Troubleman,
You wished it all away.
Gun in hand,
You found a path today.
And I know, nothing about.
Troubleman,
Your faith was long ago.
Foreign land,
The sea was made of stone.
And I know, nothing about.
He's gotten bad for me,
He's gotten bad for me,
The only game he played,
Now, turn the other way.
He's gotten bad for me,
He's gotten bad for me,
The only game he played, he played.

*goes to look at wolf photo* No link *snarly face*
Was the wolf that color or did you modify it to match your character better?

No, the wolf was originally a tan-cream color. I edited the color as well as the lighting, setting, and eye color.

I've seen very reddish wolves (red wolves and sometimes european) but I have never actually seen an orange wolf. Interesting!

Touche! Yes, Faolan is a pretty boy 8( I'm envious of his luscious golden locks. He'd be Fabio if he wasn't so focused on being manry and tuff.

Your art remembers me of something similar I've seen on a rp site, named Ciroc.
Are you by any chance a RPer there?
I admire your art, so maybe I will commission you ^^

I was once on Ciroc, but have since left to pursue other rpgs. :) I'm known as Argent in the rpging circle. That would be awesome! Send me a note if you're interested c:

Ahhh, and you made tables there? :0
Someone has an art similar to yours, but the way you make the eyes is better ^^
Oh, what site?
I shall once I am sure I want one ^^

Yesyes, I sure did. Madison and I have a somewhat similar style (although we've been getting more and more dissimilar as we figure out our unique ways of doing things), so you might be thinking of her? I believe she plays Sjorskrim (sp?) on Ciroc. I'm currently working on creating my own rpg and am sadly not a member on any others :(

:iconnarcotic-sound:
Narcotic-Sound Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
YA!! I believe madison is the one who creates the tables ^^ Are you still on the site? or somewhat?
Is Madison doing tables for the members there for free? :0 Cuz i've seen a lot, or maybe she just has many characters ^^;
Oh, you have an RPg? Wolves? I can join (: I enjoy RPing, though currently, focusing more on the human RPs, I own a site actually, just waiting for more people ^^; Harry-Potter themed "pack", people can RP as wolves as well.
I would gladly join yours if you have it up :aww:

No, I left. Well, went inactive really. My interest for the site waned, so I didn't see terribly much reason to stay. I have no idea, I'm not up to date on Ciroc's happenings. I think she might be doing trades. It's not open at the moment; I'm still working on production side of it. It will eventually be a shapeshifters site with an option for people to play exclusively as animals thanks to a subculture on the site that lives only in their animal form.

Ahhh, that's interesting, I was thinking of joining Ciroc, and when I found you here on dA, I was wondering if you are in there, but never really got the chance to talk with you ^^; probably i was too shy back in that days.
You were doing there requests? or trades?
Well I will think about joining, if that's ok?
Just let me know when the site is up? (:

I did requests for a while. c: Ok, I'll try and remember to let my watchers know when it's ready. It might be a month or two in coming, but it'll be around eventually :)

Beautiful work and you have managed to capture the description well in the expression and poise of the wolf, head down, eyes staring at the viewer. A very defiant and strong demeanour. The location, the landscape implies a sense of journey and a sort of self inflicted loneliness. This is indeed a masterpeice and your writing to go along with it is beautiful and emotive

Ohgollygee, thank you!! That is basically everything I was trying to portray. He is an incorrigible wanderer, so I wanted something as desolate and empty as possible while still trying to have something similar to moors he grew up on.
