|Points would be appreciated so I can try to spruce up my page and also get featured in some commission groups to generate some interest ^_^|

Hi there and welcome to my page!
I'm an artist based in Melbourne, Australia and I love drawing other people's characters. I seem to lack the inspiration to draw my own unless it's to use them as guinea pigs for new art/colouring styles I want to experiment with.
Either way, drawing is what I love to do and as such I'm pretty much always open for commissions - just check my journal for pricing information.
If you need help with a drawing or even clothing designs for characters, feel free to note me. I like to help people and sometimes brainstorming can help you get past stumbling blocks.
You can find me and my things in the following places:
Updates at concept sketch, line art and then flat colour stages.
At concept stage we hammer out the pose and this can go back and forth a few times until you're happy with it. At the line art stage, I'll finalise the pose - this is the last chance you have to edit the pose. Once the colours go on, I'll only accept changes to the colours themselves and changing the pose again will incur an extra charge up to half the price of your commission.
If I took out the approval process outlined above, I can generally get a full character drawing with no background done in around 8 hours or less, depending on the complexity of the pose and the outfit. So if you want something quick, I can take out the process above but there will be no modifications and you'll only see the art once it's been completed. Otherwise, the time is also largely dependant on you getting back to me at each approval stage as I won't start the next stage until I get the okay.
All prices below are for a cel-shaded style of colouring with no background.
Waist Up: $20
Thighs Up: $40
Full Body: $60-90 depending on how complex the character is.
+ Soft Shading: Please add $30 to the base price
+ Background: Please add $20 - $50 depending on how complex it is
+1 Extra Character (couple art): Base Price x 2 = Total
Example: Waist Up Couple Art is $20 x 2 = $40
+ Multiple Characters (groups of 3 or more): Base Price x Number of Characters - $10 for each 'additional' character
Example: Waist Up Group Art of 4 Character is $20 x 4-$30= $50
I’ve been wanting to make one of these sorts of things for awhile now so here it is I guess.
I posted up Joy’s profile a day or so ago which can be found here if you’d like to see what her current stats are and even a few facts about Joy herself as a character.
Keep reading below to see what made Joy start her path as an Eldath Alcolyte.
It was one of the first things that Joy learned to identify as a child.
As she followed her parents on their travels, she came to understand that they were always viewed with fear and what swiftly followed was either distrust, anger or even hate.
Seemingly mindful of the emotions, her mother always seemed to have a sad mien, her lips perpetually down turned any time they were in a settlement with other races present. Her father reacted by standing tall, not bowing down in the face of others.
She was still too young at the time to fully appreciate her parents names - Sorrow and Pride.
The only times they seemed to relax were when it was just them three upon the road or if they stayed a spell in one of the far in between Tiefling villages.
Eldathyn are instructed to nurture and aid and not to restrict or punish. They may defend but not punish. Eldathyn may work violence only to defend, and they may slay no thing of the forest save to prevent it from slaying themselves or another under their protection.
During her eighth year they came across one of the Temple Groves of Eldath, Goddess of Peace.
It was the first time that Ia, as she was called at the time, encountered people who accepted her family with no fear and ill will. They were welcomed into the community to find peace in the nature that Eldath herself loved and cared for.
It was a blessed week for Ia, to witness her parents relaxing in the presence of other races for the first time.
When their customary week’s stay was over and her parents were packing to leave, Ia announced that she would stay with the Eldathyn’s. It was her wish to learn and in turn teach how to accept and promote peace as they did. Surely, if others but learned of this peace then all races could learn to love and live alongside each other with no prejudice or hate.
As though Eldath herself blessed this decision a gentle breeze swept through the grove and Sorrow and Pride left behind their only daughter, who had declared herself to be Joy that she might live to know and spread it with Eldath’s guidance.
Although it is part of the making of a priest of Eldath that an individual must travel Faerun widely enough to pray in at least nine sacred fastnesses (temple groves) dedicated to the goddess, most Eldathyn settle in one grove or one forest and live their lives thereabouts.
As Joy turned 18 she was still an Acolyte of Eldath but was taking her first steps towards becoming a full fledged priestess. It was her desire to be a Freewalker, one of the adventurer-priests that travelled far and wide to share Eldath’s teachings and also assisting other urban-based followers of Eldath in reaching the more secluded forest Temples to worship and pray. Her lack of skill in social speaking made her true dream of becoming a negotiator something too hard to obtain.
It was as she was leaving her current forest temple that put her on the path to Greenest, a town that would in turn take her to other cities that she might find more places of worship.
