Commissions

Academic-Style Critique
Looking for serious, detailed, yet fair feedback on your art?  Have your work professionally critiqued!

For examples, my current repertoire of dA critiques can be seen below!

I am a university fine arts student with real-world critique experience, giving and receiving critiques both in oral and written format, schooled in the most constructive and satisfying critique method there is.  I do not give simple constructive criticism--only a part of academic critique--my service is a full review designed not only to help the artist improve their work but also to interpret and analyze the art as it is, focusing on areas such as style, technique, and visual metaphor.  Because my critiques are not based on criticism alone and are written in a professional, impersonal format, they do not end up sounding rude, scathing, or disheartening as others do.  From the Wikipedia article on critique: Critique is based upon an informed opinion, and never upon personal opinion. Informed opinion is accepted as being technical knowledge, personal or professional experience, or specified training.  If receiving a fulfilling review of your work sounds good, read on for details!

Purchase of this commission will accord you a formal critique with these specifications:
  • Written in a professional and academic style (English-language only).
  • At least two substantive paragraphs, up to five as the art dictates.
  • Delivered via the deviantART Critique system.
  • Turn-around time will range from same-day up to two weeks after I officially accept the commission.
  • You may request specific areas to be touched upon (coloring, style, etc.) though I cannot guarantee I will be able to fulfill all such requests.
The following reservations should be noted.  If your order does not meet requirements, it will not be accepted.
  • Applies only to deviantART-hosted art, aka deviations.
  • You must have critiques turned on for the piece you wish to have critiqued.  I will not provide the critique in the comments section.
  • My expertise lies with 2-dimensional art in traditional or digital media, particularly drawings and paintings.  As such, I may decline to critique your work if I don't feel I have the knowledge to do so.
  • I will not accept art that is incomplete or does not have enough substance for me to produce a quality critique.
  • I will strive to provide a fair, full-bodied critique but I will not rewrite, augment, or otherwise change the critique once it has been submitted (excepting technical errors or glitches).  I do not provide a guarantee that you will like your critique, only that it will be expertly written, relevant, detailed, and as objective as possible.
If you've read all that and feel you're ready for some fine arts-style feedback, click the "Request Commission" button and include the following information:
  1. A link to the deviation you want me to critique (vital).
  2. Any specific areas you'd like me to include or focus on in my critique.
  3. Other information you think is relevant to the commission.
Once I receive your request, I will review the information you provided and if I'm able to accept the request, you will soon have an outstanding critique submitted to your artwork!  I look forward to working with you!

Activity


It has yet again been a very long while since my last update, nearly two years!  Life has not been uneventful in that time and I thought it would be a good idea to put up a journal entry that covers the big news, especially since much of it directly affects my artistic endeavors.  I don't want to spend too much time on this, however (I have art to create!) so I'm just gonna bullet it out :3

  • In February of 2016, I parted ways with my former employer.  shumphrey made it possible to eliminate the need for my day-job so that I could finally make art my number-one focus and build it into a real career Huggle! 
  • On April 1st of that year, I officially entered my 3rd decade of existence as a physically independent lifeform Mwahahahahahahaha! 
  • After lots of research, work, decision-making, contracting, and other unexpectedly difficult efforts, the culmination of my wedding planning was realized in Snohomish County, WA, USA on the day of autumn equinox, 22 September 2016 Floating hearts 1 
  • Starting on the first business day of this year, I finally began working full-time as an artist :happybounce: 

Considering all that transpired in the past year alone, 2017 is not just another chapter in my life.  It marks the beginning of an entirely new book.  There's so much I've left behind, some of it completely unexpected, but now the pathways are clear and I can finally pursue dreams that I nearly abandoned.  It won't be a simple, easy journey, but it's the direction in which I've wanted to head for a good long time.
  • Listening to: Super Mario 64 - Portrait of a Plumber (OC ReMix)
  • Reading: The Legend of Zelda - Art & Artifacts
  • Watching: PBS Off Book (YouTube channel)
  • Playing: Fire Emblem Awakening (2nd savefile: Hard Casual)
  • Eating: turkey and pepperjack sandwich
  • Drinking: water

Artist's Statement
“My life's purpose is to encourage the good in the world. When it comes to my art, I endeavor to create a body of work that speaks to people clearly and optimistically, makes them smile or feel connection. I want to focus on positivity because existence is already fraught with enough pain and hardship, there's no need to cultivate that which makes life difficult. I want to warm your heart, make you squeal with innocent glee, feel empowered and encouraged, or simply give you a moment of respite from your everyday worries. I know this is a lofty goal, but the dedication of my life to this undertaking will surely make it attainable.”

Have you ever had a dream, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?

What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire deviant life, that there's something wrong with the story. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.

You take the blue pill, the story ends. Your browser closes and you believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland. And, I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

I offer only the truth, nothing more.

Take: The Red Pill
Take: The Blue Pill

Fella Point Right spyed, nobody has ever done this before.
Ninja Point Right I know. That's why it's going to work.

Do not try and bend the spoon ...

Hi! Thanks for the comments! I LOVE the Suikoden games *___* Yeah Suiko3 was sorta the game that made the Suiko series popular in the States :D (Big Grin) But Suikoden 2 was quite popular in the 'Underground' scene, so to speak ^_^ I have the first Genso Suikoden game, I got it a loooooooong time ago! When it was first released actually! :D (Big Grin) Awww, since you claimed Gremio, I claim McDohl :D (Big Grin) He's my favorite hero out of all the Suikoden games :D (Big Grin) Oooo and Rubi, the elven archer was awesome! XD

Er, sorry for ranting like that ^_^ I'll be putting you on my Dev Watch! :D (Big Grin)
