One Last Glance - Digicolored by RockingScorpion

I like it. The coloring is good, as is the line work. I am a bit skeptical about the relative size of Littlefoot. He only seems to be a...



What kind of deviation do you want to see most? 

5 deviants said More dragons!
3 deviants said Try something new!
2 deviants said Dracons, please!
2 deviants said A short story!
1 deviant said Another planet!
1 deviant said Finish one of your novels! You've got like, four in the works!
1 deviant said Make a map!
What does everyone think about it? I think its more changing what wasn't broken in the first place. That said, a few changes can't possibly be that bad. I hope.

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: Collab up!

5. :iconnotecardpasta: Collab uploaded. Thanks!

* 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.

Just some more practice. It's not a dracon foot.

Just some more sketching. I've already posted the picture which uses this sketch.
Sybil by Aristodes
Just another female dracon. I may post the pencil sketch for this one later.

Thanks to :iconvarrio10: for permission to use his post as a model. I used similar colors too. Sorta. :D

If you want to commission anything yourself, you are more than welcome to.
petit-fluffy-wolf Featured By Owner May 3, 2015
I'd like to, but how much do you charge for a commission ? Or maybe I could do a request, if you agree ?
Aristodes Featured By Owner May 3, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
500 points for most commissions, but I can be flexible.

dragons. mythical and legendary creatures. My favorite dragons are Alexandrite Dragon and Blue-eyes White Dragon.
Sound unusual, don't you think?

Did you vote in the poll? And yes, that is interesting.

 I know you are busy, but I wanted to show you a WIP of a Star Wars ship a friend in making in 3d :D .

I find your dracon world and lore really interesting! It is really well-built, far more solid and complete than Terrevanimus. I would love it if we could collaborate on world-building sometime!

Actually, there is something we can do, for starters. Mind if I add a background to the headshot you sent? I will place it under collabs and credit you, of course.
