Personal Quote: "You can quote me."
Hello all!  

I'm opening up commissions for a series of black and white portraits. I have posted a couple to give you an idea of what other folks have asked for. 

12X16 sized canvas, black and white, commissions going for $100 US. 

Any character, any genre, anything you can think of, in black and white. If I get enough takers, the images may end up as part of an art book that I think will be a fun idea. 

Let me know in a private message or email me at if you are interested in getting a portrait for yourself or a loved one. I look forward to hearing from you.

You have such a great gallery!

I'd love to ask you one question,
how do you make characters feel heavy? (or not at all?)

Its a thing I cant tackle and wondered if you could advise me on it.

Thank you <3

Well, a good foundation of understanding anatomical form and function goes a long way. 

I usually try to create weight and volume through essential uses of shadow, mostly putting thicker or 'heavier' lines underneath and thinner or "lighter" lines above. 

Let me know if that helps. :D
