Do you want a collab or art trade?

No deviants said ... what?
The news has been making the rounds on DA, so I will put my thoughts on it. He died at age 85, due to complications related to smoking (COPD), even though he quit 30 years ago. That's right everyone, please do not smoke!…

Although I truly hate Star Trek (I really like Star Wars), I have to admit his performance in it was one of the few good things about that show. He was a great actor and he had a stage presence that has rarely been equaled before or since. He will be missed. I would say more, but I have to go eat, then get to work.

Live Long and Prosper. (And may the Force be with you!)

Update on requests, art trades, commissions, etc:

I guess this is new for me, but outside of a couple of ideas, I have few drawings in the pipeline. I've been busy, but it looks as if two expected students aren't going to go through (boo!), but this gives me more time to draw stuff (yay!).

I suppose I will complete some inking and coloring for a friend. :iconchiletrek: has been kind enough that I have done several collabs for him by now. I see no reason not to extend that favor to others. I have time enough for five colored works with inking and a background, but I guarantee no time table. If you can provide a model pic or a good description, I would appreciate that.

1. :icondraconic13: Request: Orc vs. Dracon (Linework is mostly done, apart from some editing. Once editing is done, it will be scanned, inked, colored (with some lighting and/or shading and shadows), and a background will be added.)

2. :iconkingdragon01: Request: Done.

3. :iconkasaibou: Art Trade: My part of the trade is done.

4. :iconchiletrek: Collaboration: Still working out details, but it will be based on one of his sketches. Subject to his approval, of course.

5. Still open

:iconpointcommissionsopen: :icongiftsask: :icontradesask: :iconcollabsask: :iconrequestsask:

* New information on commissions will be forthcoming soon enough, including paypal commissions. Point commissions will still be an option too, but only for some things *

If you are interested in a picture, contact me and we can work something out on a case-by-case basis. I'm not sure how much time I will have for commissioned pictures, picture requests, or collaborations. I intend to do some of those, however.

I also do writing commissions. If you want me to write a story, a piece done involving your OCs, or something else, please message me. I only accept point commissions, and at a reasonable rate of 100 points for 1000 words, with a 100 point minimum purchase. That means if you want 1000 words, it is 100 points, and if you want 2000 words, it is 200 points. If you want 3000 words, that is 300 points, and 4000 words, 400 points, and so on. These are point commissions only, so no cash is accepted or used, save to purchase the points yourself from DA first. This is a slight price change from an earlier journal, but it is still very reasonable.

Please make sure to tell me a bit about what you want me to write, the names of any characters you want to see, and please answer any questions I may have regarding the setting and characters, to ensure the final product is what you want. I don't do anime, manga, "hetalia", or anything adult rated. I reserve the right to politely decline any commission, if I have reason to believe it does not fit standards or has some other issues.

I can do science fiction as well as fantasy, or even non-fiction genres if you desire. Just make sure to send the points and I will have the piece done in a few days or in the case of longer pieces, a week or more. As a rule of thumb, I have enough time to write 1,000 to 1,500 words a day for commissions, depending on the subject matter. For exceptionally long pieces (100,000 + words), please send me a note and we will work out a point rate and time frame on a case-by-case basis.

For multiple-chapter works, I am open to negotiating a different price, Please ask if you have any questions. More information will be posted as it becomes available, including the possibility of discounts.

If you are interested, comment below or send me a note.

Anyone who watches me (and is on good terms with me) gets a free writing of up to 5000 words. Not once a year or a month, just one free writing ever. As before, I reserve the right to politely decline anything not in good taste. I also recently corrected an error in the pricing chart, in case there was any confusion.

Astral Drake Returns
And here we have the Astral Drake returning from a long journey in the outer realms, passing back through the portal he used to enter it. The portal will remain stable for some time. Even though the drake had no hand in creating it, he has enough experience to know when these things open and close.

I decided to hold off on the lighter section of the skin this time. If the redesign is good, I will keep it that way, or else I might just add the lighter skin back later.
Feeling sick today with some kinda stomach bug.

Here is a photo of the Hearst tower, a newer building with an older base. I'll upload the picture of the base when I can.
