catwoman and harley quinn commission!

it had been a while since i drew either of these ladies, so this was extremely fun to do but i’m really tired @0@

hi everyone, commission update time! New info, new sizes, new options, new examples! wow!

The sizes are pictured at the top: the smallest is 18 by 13 cm (a half sheet of the pad in the center), medium is 18 by 26 cm, and the largest is 23 by 31 cm. Each base price listed goes up in increments of $5 for increased complexity, for example elaborate costume, a second character, lots of background elements, et cetera. All my prices were reached as a result of timing myself working at each size and a lot of thought as to how much of my supplies I was using for each (particularly ink refills for my inking pen). I provide a complete quote after you tell me what you want the piece to be. 

Small: Watercolor starts at $40, Linework (with or without a small spot color) starts at 30.

Medium: Watercolor starts at $45. Linework starts at (with or without a small spot color) $35.

Large: Watercolor starts at $60. Due to the fact this size is cold press instead of hot press, pieces take me much longer to ink thanks to the texture. Linework only is not available for this size.

Digital: perfect for tattoos or your blog! All start at $40 and shift from there depending on time and detail. If it is for a tattoo I will email you the full color version and a version that is only linework. Nothing will be mailed for digital pieces.

Shipping is $5 within the US, and $8 for outside (the international price is subject to change)

And as always, there are lots of lovely things available in my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/nikinapalm

Either contact me on here (via fanmail, preferably, so when I reply it stays in my messages) or email me at nikinapalm@gmail.com with the subject “Commission Stuff”! I can also be reached at my Facebook illustration page.

I’m gonna try taking some pictures of this in natural lighting tomorrow to hopefully get truer colors (fingers crossed) but here’s the scan that took me way too long to compile because my new paper is bigger than my scanner!

This one was a commission & she wanted it to be “darker” and liked the American Mcgee’s Alice games, so I wanted to kinda reference that and her ‘typical’ appearance at the same time without really making  it clearly one or the other. Make it my own, I guess, while still getting the vibe that was asked for.

in other news i’m gonna be offering these 23 by 31cm paintings for commission and probably in my shop soon so keep your eyes peeled for a NEW AND IMPROVED price info post! yay!

There’s glitter ink in her eyeball that didn’t pick up so i’m hell bent on capturing it before I send her off to the person who bought her (thanks again austenmarie ♥)

new post!

I really enjoyed Attack on Titan when I watched it online. My boyfriend kept insisting it looked pointless and “wasn’t his thing” but guess who got addicted to it once it was on netflix and they got to episode 5 (hint: it was him)

commission I did for asexualhawke of her Hawke and Sebastian.

I love drawing noses, and hadn’t drawn fanart of anyone from DA2 since like a month after I beat the game so it was fun ♥
