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...



Do you want me to make adoptables, and if so, what kind? 

2 deviants said I'd like adoptable drakes.
2 deviants said Make adoptable maps! You make it, I'll name it and give it a background.
1 deviant said No adoptables, please. Those are unoriginal and boring.
1 deviant said Yes, adoptables! :D I don't care what kind!
1 deviant said What about adoptable planets? Hardly anyone else has those.
1 deviant said Maybe an adoptable dragon? Or any other creature, really.
No deviants said How about adoptable dracons?
On DeathBattle. As it had to be. Superman has no limits, Goku does. Superman melted Goku's brain this time, focusing his heat vision through Goku's eye. Or at least, reduced it to ashes. I was pleasantly surprised by this outcome.

Now will the Kamikazes shut up?! I know they won't, but it seriously looks like there will NOT be a third match between them. Just accept it already.

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: Short Story. Done

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.


Aristodes has started a donation pool!

I have another commission to do, so I increased my goal.

You must be logged in to donate.


Lower Manhattan Skyline by Aristodes
Lower Manhattan Skyline
Many people don't know this, but Manhattan has two skylines. Midtown has the larger of the two, but lower Manhattan has the New World Trade Center, seen as the tallest building here.
Winged Drake Version 2 by Aristodes
Winged Drake Version 2
A remake of an earlier picture of mine. I might work on one of the feet a bit more.

Here is the earlier picture, an inferior work of mine in most respects: Winged Drake by Aristodes
Lindworm by Aristodes
From the fevered imagination of near-illiterate barbarians, here is the Lindworm. It is ripped straight from Norse mythology, and exists in Other Earth as well. In the nastier regions. It's a two-legged dragon. No front limbs or wings. Weird.

I have a better one in the works, don't worry!
Ilsa on the Beach by Aristodes
Ilsa on the Beach
This picture shows Ilsa, a female dracon and sorceress. She is Minna's best friend. Like Minna, she belongs to :iconspyronick: and I have used her here with his permission. This one replaces an earlier, sketchier version. I also changed Ilsa's spur claws so they are facing a more appropriate way.

I was hoping for a point commission later, but I will wait on that. I am going to be commissioned myself by another person on DA, and when I have received the points from that, I will be able to commission you.

ooooooooo~ Fair enough :D I'll be happy to draw something for you.
Note me when you're ready, if you're still keen.
