Journal Features and Interviews


It's all about AmarithAllow me to gush a little about my new friend SapphireGamgee, who created the phenomenal image of my protagonist Amarith, from my compelted fantasy novel of the same name. From my descriptions, she drafted, and re-drafted (and re-drafted again) until I was happy with the character representation: getting an image from my head, to someone else's head, and then into visual image form is no small feat, and though it took some tweaking towards the end there, I'm happy to say that the final result IS how I pictured the Amarith I created.
Suffice to say, that I will be commissioning SapphireGamgee to undertake further work for me, probably for the novel, the sequel of which I am currently in the process of writing.

Wow....two journal features in the last month!  You guys are so sweet to me! :hug:  This time it was :iconkitaklaw: , who is also a Lord of the Rings fan.  She\\\'s doing spotlights of LOTR art, and started with art of the hobbits.  How awesome is that?  

Anyway, here's the feature… out all the other wonderful hobbit art in there as well!  LOTR FANS UNITE!


:iconmirachravaia: featured my art in her journal spotlight!  Three pieces, as a matter of fact!  For any of you interested in hurt/comfort art, check it out!  (It's one of my favorite themes, obviously :D )  Also, there are quite a few Lord of the Rings and Silmarillion pieces in there, which I enjoyed looking at as well.

The spotlight is here: Hurt/Comfort featureI have a soft spot for injured characters, and their friends caring for them... (if you are disturbed by blood, don't look!)

Summer Commission Slots Open!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 6, 2014, 2:05 PM

.: Art :.

I now have open commission slots for summer, so if you were thinking of getting one, send me a note and we can discuss your commission!  Slots going fast :D
Please take a look at the commission process and pricing below :D


Basic Commission Process:

Step 1: Decide what kind of a commission you want. 

The easiest way to determine what style you desire and the cost is to look at the samples below.  The samples are not limited to what I can do, but they'll give you a rough idea.  

Subjects include, but are not necessarily limited to:  Existing characters, original characters (yours or my own), comics, fantasy, storyboards, bromance, friendship, still-life, portraits (human, animal, anthro, other) , photo-restoration /manipulation.  If you're not sure if I can do it, don't hesitate to ask!
I WON'T do:  Pornography, explicitly Yaoi/Yuri/bi-relationships, anything too sexually charged or violent (If you're not sure, discuss your ideas with me, and I'll tell you where the line is.)

Step 2: Discussion of concept and commission price.  

This may be done in notes through Deviant Art, by email, or other method of private messaging (I use the first two the most, but whatever you're most comfortable with. )  Once the basic concept is agreed upon, I will give you an initial price estimate.  

Note: I've had to re-tool some of my prices, which will be reflected below in the sample list.  Individual prices will vary, but the samples will give you a rough idea.  (These sample prices do not affect past commissions where a price has already been discussed and fixed upon) .  

Step 3: Concept Sketches.  

I will send preliminary sketches via email to you, at which time you will pay half the commission price in advance.  Payment may be sent via Paypal or regular mail.  I will give you my information privately at that time.  Any change in price will also be finalized then, since preliminary concept work helps me to better gauge the time and effort that will go into the finished product.  However, the initial estimate and final price will probably not vary too much, if at all, so don't worry!

Step 4: Final Draft. 

Once I have the final draft completed I will send you a low-resolution file via email so you can approve it, or request changes.  If your changes are minor, or the result of a fault on my part, there is no extra charge.  However, major revisions will otherwise cost extra.  

Step 5: Payment and Finished Product.  

Once the commission is completed to everyone's satisfaction, you will send the other half of the payment.  Once I have been paid in full, I will send you the high-resolution file via email, as well as an invoice.  Payment in installments is an option and can be discussed on a commission-by-commission basis.

Note:  A physical copy of your commission can be printed and framed and sent to you, but you must cover the cost, as well as shipping and handling.  Let me know if this is something you want and we can discuss the details.

Sweet Potato by SapphireGamgee
Sweet Potato
Early Christmas gift/commission for a friend of :iconharogirl: .  Said friend has earned the nickname "Queen of the Potatoes", hence her ponysona's cutie-mark, and her earthy color-scheme.  Also for that reason her battered old sunhat is in the shape of a crown.  She has her own potato cart, a queenly gown befitting her title, and a little potato friend to take to Disneyland (totally my invention; I just liked the visual. )  Since the girl this is based on is a larger build I used Mrs. Cake as a reference.  I also used Applejack's apple cart for reference for Sweet Potato's potato cart.

I admit I really enjoy doing ponysonas, so this one was a lot of fun!  I'm especially glad I could finally post something.  I've been so busy since this summer but most of the projects I've worked on can't be posted.  Hopefully I'll have more to submit later on.


Featured Deviants!

Friends and fellow artists, this month from the list on my journal. Give these people gallery traffic and lots of hugs, because they're awesome and super-nice!

Hello I am holding a Contest for talented people and was wondering if you wanted to join…
SapphireGamgee Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
It's so very kind of you to want to include me!  I am afraid I don't have time this season, but maybe sometime in future.  Thank you again for thinking I'm good enough to include in your contest ^_^

Ms. Gamgee,
     your gallery of your version of "The Nutcracker Suite" has inspired me so much that I've been thinking of doing my version of "Carnival of the Animals" sometime. What do you think of that?
SapphireGamgee Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
That would be fun!  I've had half-baked thoughts of doing that myself, but I'm sure you've got better ones XD

Oh you bet. I've got a couple of surprises up my sleeve

Hey, I was wondering: what has art education consisted of? I've never taken an art class and I'm extremely curious haha Sweating a little...  
SapphireGamgee Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
The details depend on which school you go to and your artistic focus, but in general you learn the basics first; color, texture, line, form, space and value.  You also learn figure drawing, perspective, and some of the different artistic media (pastels, oils, watercolors, digital, etc. )  Art history is a big part of a basic education in visual art, and I know at my school we also did a lot of studying from the old masters (Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Reubens, etc. )

Thank you so much! This was really helpful! I appreciate it :)
