Will you do any ink streams anytime soon?

Unfortunately this week there way waaay too much going on here, so I have no streams planned.

I do have a number of pieces to ink this coming week though! I’ll post a stream schedule on Monday Sep 1.

I just wanted to let you know that your art is absolutely gorgeous, and I wish I was able to purchase some commissions! Sadly, I Am Unable to, being a teenager with not much income, but If had the means, I would commission like 4 painting-style portraits *-* they're absolutely beautiful!

I totally get it, no worries! I am glad you like my pieces though! ♥

Hey! One of the things I'm most impressed with in your work is your great eye for compositions. How do you go about composing your pictures? Any advice, tips, suggestions for helpful resources, or just general pointers for someone who's a bit leery of the world of compositions?

Heya! I am flattered you like my compositions! ♥

I’m still learning a lot about compositions myself, but I normally start off all pieces with quick composition doodles (basically gesture drawings with some color slapped on) and do a number of them till I get a mood and layout I like.

There are a ton of really good comp resources out there, one of my absolute favorites to start is: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php/232819-The-Secret-to-Composition-tutorial

That ‘tutorial’ covers the basics. After that I recommend to start paying attention to artists and pieces you enjoy and mentally breaking down what they do to ‘draw you in’ and make you love a piece.

Hope that helps a bit!

To all commissioners and those that watch my streams:

I am currently out of town for a while, but I am letting everyone know when I am back I will be cancelling a large portion of the September commissions.

Things have been busy every week for a few months, and I am feeling the burn out. I have a number of commissions for August still to finish (to those: I will be starting up the finishing rounds when I’m back on Wednesday).

I need some time for myself and my own art, to get recharged and refreshed, before I open again for October.

I will send out cancellation emails on Wednesday (27th) afternoon.

Commission for Ariakitty of her character Lumen, Listener of the Dark Brotherhood.
I was worried this piece was going to turn out too dark, so I went about shading a little differently then I normally do. I am super happy with the way it came out!

I am 100% a person that does not let good sketches go to waste. I have a folder full of rejected commission sketches and doodles.
It’s nice when another project fits a sketch perfectly.

deaderafterdark said: Stunning! Are your commissions open?

Commissions are full until the end of September. I’ll be posting on DeviantArt and here when they open again.

Commission prices and info: http://artofcarmen.deviantart.com/journal/Commission-Information-356646864

Sometimes, when working on commissions, I’ll sketch a few different compositions. And about 2% of the time I’ll end up liking all of the sketches.

This is one of those times.

I sent all 3 to the commissioner. Let’s see what get’s picked!

I did some poster pin up work for the rewards for this project, and I’m super happy to announce it launching on kickstarter!

JUSTICE/VENGEANCE!

Pledge of $35 or more get both digital and physical copies of the first 5 issues, as well as a choice of two exclusive pin ups (by myself, or other artists!)

Reblogs appreciated!

Let’s get this project up off the ground! ♥
