My Second Cat Portrait Commission

a_ref_catcom
This post is all about a commissioned watercolor painting I created in the beginning of summer. Before starting to work on the painting, I showed the client the cat portrait I had made a year ago. She liked the composition and we agreed I'd make this portrait in a similar way. The client had a list of certain plants that she wan...

A Custom Birthday Card Commission

a_ref_card
The first time I got to create a digitally colored drawing as a commission! I mean, I do love watercolors but it was nice to do something a little different. Painting with watercolors is after all, to me, the most time (and brain-energy) consuming way of creating art.This cheerful fox was a custom design for a birthday card. The clie...

The Creation of My Biggest Watercolor Painting Commission

a_rat_ref
Nine rats living in a fantasy forest; the most detailed large-scale painting I've ever done so far. The painting process took me about one and a half months from start to finish, though I should point out I did not work on this commission full-time. I also had other tasks and projects that I worked on during that time....

Cat Portrait - Commission

a_catfeature
So far, I have had the chance to create portraits of humans and dogs, but this time it was, for the first time, a cat.This particular cat had had a special relationship with pansies, and the commissioner wanted to have her furry friend portrayed with them, thus I got the idea of the kitty being surrounded with these flowers, holding one&n...

3 Commissions for 3 Businesses

a_comfeature
Just before the busy summer-sales-season, I got to create three commissions that were all for three different businesses. The first one was a logo design, second a caricature for a business card, and the third another logo design. I'm sharing the work-in-progress material here as usual, with some more details about the creation processes ...

Wedding Portrait - Commission (wip)

a_wed_feature
This painting took me surprisingly little time considering it was A2-sized. But then again, the commissioner wished the painting to remain rather simple and wanted the surroundings of the couple to be blurry. So, at the end, the only places where I really needed to pay attention were the faces of the two people, and their upper bodies. As can ...

I needed to paint this commission three times to be satisfied...

a_cherry_feature
At the end, not giving up was certainly the right thing to do with this commission. To me, it is really important that I can be proud of the artworks that I create, especially so when it is a commission. I believe when I can look at my painting and know that I've truly and honestly given it my best, the client will be happy with it a...

FLOWER HEDGEHOG - COMMISSION IN PROGRESS

a_fhcommission_featured
Ever since I drew my first flower-hedgehog as one of my 2017 inktober drawings, the idea of a hedgehog carrying flowers in her back instead of spikes, has been very popular. This is why I wanted to draw another hedgehog for my coloring book (all the three versions are now available on Wonder SHOP) and now, I was commissioned to create this flo...

PORTRAITS OF A SHETLAND SHEEP DOG - COMMISSION IN PROGRESS

a_sheepdog_feature
 If you follow me on social media, you've most certainly seen some pictures of a Shetland sheep dog a while ago. I had the honor of drawing four portraits of this lovely dog as a commission. It was the first time someone commissioned me a dog portrait, and also the first time the technique requested was ink drawing. However, since I'm ver...

IT TURNED OUT EVEN CUTER THAN I EXPECTED!

Feature-4
Sure, my plan was to make this commission a cute one. That's what the client wanted after all. But somehow, the way this little fellow turned out has even more of cuteness than I intended. Needless to say, I'm very happy with this painting of mine and I hope the client is going to like it as much as I do. Then, of course, the work-in-progress pictu...

A SONG TO THE MOON - COMMISSION PROGRESS

15_feature
One of the most pleasant commissions I've ever received! Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it. The instructions I got from the client for this painting were: wolf, forest, full moon, blue ...

UNICORN - COMMISSION PROGRESS

Feature-21
 This commission was finished in one single day. I did work on it all day long but it was still nice to get it done so swiftly (I'm used to spending several days on my paintings). I guess I was overly excited to paint the unicorn since I forgot to take the picture of the sketch before starting the coloring.Click on the picture on the left...
