First off, I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who’s commissioned me in the past. It’s such a great feeling to generate a little income by doing something I love, and every single commission I’ve received has helped me vastly. Sometimes it’s the difference between being able to get a textbook right away, or being able to take an extra course.
Now, however, the stakes are a little higher. If all goes according to plan, myself and two others will be moving into an apartment by either late March or early April. It’s been a very meticulously thought-out process, and I’m both excited and nervous about this next big leap into the realm of adulthood. That said, if you’ve ever considered asking me for a commission, there’s no time like the present! In this case it could mean an extra piece of furniture for us, extra food, or a little extra for next month’s rent. Anything would seriously help.
Again, I really can’t express the gratitude I have for the massive amount of support I’ve received over the past couple years. It makes doing what I love that much more enjoyable. Even if you haven’t ever commissioned me, just helping spread the word is enough in itself. Thanks again. I’ll keep you all posted as things develop.
Here’s a quick little painting I did just before work a week or so ago.
Quick sketch of Terriermon from Digimon season 3.
Finished T-shirt design I submitted for our college’s cyber defense team to wear for their upcoming competition. The winning design gets $100 and a few free T-shirts with the design printed on it. The winning design is announced next Wednesday. *fingers crossed*
Hey guys! The holidays are just around the corner, and I find myself in need of some extra funds. I’m working on moving into a place of my own in the coming year, and I also have classes to pay for, so every little bit helps. Starting now through January 1st, all art commissions are buy one get one half off! That includes character sketches, personalized mug/t-shirt designs, pet portraits, etc. All traditional pieces will be sent to you at no extra cost. For examples, check my facebook page: Art & Graphic Design by Brittany Birge. Rates can be found here: eddiesketti.wordpress.com/commissions.
Probably not the most ideal work space, but that’s where I ended up. Working on a character commission.
Had some me time tonight, so I popped in Ghost Rider and decided to draw myself as a Rider. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to just let loose and lose myself in a piece, to the point that I totally lose track of time. I was finally able to achieve that tonight, and I’m quite pleased with the result.
I took some basic photos photos of a piece I did a little while back. This little guy was made from a white pottery clay, kiln-fired, painted with various glazes, then re-fired. He’s one of a kind, and one of my personal favorites.
The photo-taking process was relatively simple. I set the sculpted piece on an angled, propped-up piece of white printer paper, and used a clamp-on light to provide the type of lighting I wanted. (The light pictured is actually my pet tortoise’s heat lamp, since it was the closest clamp-on fixture available.) This is a very quick and easy method for anyone who wants to display a particular item without any distracting background items.
