Commissioning Bad Ritual
This is the best that I can do, and the most I have to offer. This is something I'll spend full days working on to ensure you get a polished and refined painting. Full colour! I'm not very good at backgrounds though, so they'll never be very complex. Maybe one day! But not today.
A quick painting over a loose sketch. This is a fast and sweet painting that is loose and painterly. A great choice if you're looking for concept art.
Lineart is a far more refined type of sketch with nice clean lines. It pairs fantastically with colour.
A sketch is a quick, loose rendering of a character. This resembles a pencil sketch on paper.

Assorted other types of commissions that don't fit into my main styles.
