Doing Better/Commissions

Fri Apr 3, 2015, 12:05 PM

I'm happy to say that I'm no longer confined to bed rest.  :)  Thanks to those who commissioned me while I was laid up, it really helped pass the time!  I'm going to finish up anything outstanding, but the $10 sketch deal is now over.  I'm back to work on the game.

I do still take commissions, but I no longer have a price list.  Each commission is considered individually based on its requirements, and the time I'll have to take away from the game to work on it.  You can always feel free to send me a note or a Facebook message if you'd like to inquire about something. :)

D.L. by ArtistMeli
Sketch commission for FireFlea-San of her character D.L.  He seemed like the rock star type to me, so I turned his sword into a guitar and drew him rocking out.  XD

Oh right, and I drew this one on my Samsung Note 12.2.  <3

A sketch commission for FireFlea-San of her character Godiva.  It was supposed to be b&w, but I put in some quick color because she really suffered without it. :)

Updates and Commissions

Mon Mar 30, 2015, 3:31 PM

Hey all, it's been a while! Here's what's been going on in my life.

I'm sick.  I've been suffering from chronic illness for about 12 years now.  Sometimes it's worse than others.  I have years where I just feel tired, but otherwise I can handle day-to-day life.  This was when I went back to college.  

But I also have years where I just feel like I've been hit by a truck.  I feel so tired it's like I have lead weights tying down my limbs. I get debilitating migraines 16 days out of the month, and my whole body aches.  I have bad digestive issues, and have even needed emergency surgeries in the past.  

I had two-and-a-half good years, but now I'm back into the bad.  I've been slowly deteriorating for almost a year now, and the past week I haven't been able to spend more than a few hours out of bed without being in intense pain.  But I've also got insomnia, so I'm not sleeping... I'm just bored.  :P

So, in order to have something to do, I'm going to take sketch commissions.  XD  I got a Samsung Note tablet for Christmas, so I'm still able to do digital art while in bed.  I'm thinking $10 each, and I'll keep taking them until I'm able to get back to my game work.  

TL;DR:  I'm sick and bored so I'm taking sketch commissions for $10 each.

If interested, you can note me here, or you can reach me more quickly on my facebook:

Do you do requests and art trades?
ArtistMeli Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Unfortunately I don't, I just don't have the time anymore.  :(  I do take commissions sometimes, but right now I'm working on a video game, so I can only take major commissions at $100+.

Happy Halloween! Pumpkin La 

You know these yokai you're drawing would look really cute as like stickers. You should sell them at a con or something. Maybe a button? I really want a button maker someday > _ <

Thanks!  Hope you had a Happy Halloween as well. ^_^  I've thought about doing art cards for the monster girls, or a very small art book!  Right now all my time/effort are going into the game, though.

Oh I know the game must be eating up all your time. >_< Plus, computer issues. Well, there's no rush. You can make stuff anytime. I have been thinking of making some cool fanart for your game. It's so pretty. :D
