Why do things have to be so damn complicated?
Some of you may recall my early website FATOPIA. Yes, I'm Akia Swan. My artwork has greatly improved since the day, and I'm proud to have been the origin of the WG artwork that is pretty prevalent today. My artwork subject matter and styles vary greatly. You may find just about anything in my gallery. If there is something you see that you just don't like, I would appreciate your not leaving a derogatory comment.
Flames aren't welcome here.
Commissions are still open, and now, I can put pix in here so you don't have to click a link!
Again, I'm still working on improving all facets of my abilities, and this is now including some painted backdrops which I'll be uploading for background use for anyone who wants to use them.
Commissions: Commissions are open.
Art Trades: I rarely do art trades, but if you can create something like this, then I will entertain the notion of a trade.
Requests: I do not take requests. At times, I may ask for character suggestions or post a contest that created
but these, too, will be rare. This is my only source of income and I simply cannot do non gratis work. I will on occasion run a special for commissioned work. Watch for any special promotions.
If you want to request a kind of commission not shown here, ie, chibis or character from photograph, note me and I'll open a dialogue with you.
Rates are as follows (in US funds):
Rough pencil sketch, no cleanup, one character_______$5 Add'l charas, add $2 each.
Cleaned Lineart, one character_______$10, additional characters, add $3 each
Cleaned pencilwork, greyscale________$15, additional characters, add $4 each
Lineart with color, photo or simple background, one character____$15, additional characters, add $4 each
Lineart with color, technical background, one character____$20+ (depending on complexity), additional characters, add $5 each.
Hand-colored lineart, simple background, one character_____$30+ (depending on complexity), additional characters, $5 add each, price includes postage.
If you want me to go all out and create a storyline and artwork, note me and we can work out a price. Storylines and two images with two characters and a rendered background will start at $50 and up. Examples:
I know the prices are a bit higher than before, but I want to commit to quality over quantity. I will do artistic nudes, but no porn, hentai, eechi. If you want a commission, please send me a note with as much detail about the character as possible. I reserve the right to limit the number of additional characters. I don't draw mechanical things well, but if it's something you REALLY want, I'll use a reference and do my best. I will send you a rough sketch for you to approve or ask for revisions. When the sketch is complete, I will ink and scan it, then discuss color options with you, if you have any preferences. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Paypal can be found here!!!
I can only accept paypal at this time, and I'm going to limit the number of commissions I will accept at a time to 10. Then I'll rinse and repeat.
