Commission Info

Please note that I do not take requests. Art is my fulltime career which means sitting at a desk for the majority of the seven days of the week from waking until sleeping and I do not have the time nor resources to devote myself to free projects. Thank you so much for understanding! <3

Commissions are currently open. My prices vary depending on the piece. Email me at ShePaintswithBlood@hotmail.com with any inquiries.

FAQ:

Q: Can I pay for a commission in installments?
A: Installments can often be arranged especially for larger pieces with a deposit at the beginning of the commission. Please note that I do have a contract to sign for each commission to ensure that both the artist and client feel secure.

Q: Do you take fanart commissions of licensed characters? (My Little Pony, Balto, Lion King, etc.)
A: I am sorry but I will not take a commission for any licensed characters.

Q: Will you paint my original character based off My Little Pony, Lion King, etc.?
A: I might consider it provided that you do not ask me to paint in the style of the original creation your character is based on (I will not paint a horse in My Little Pony style nor will I use any licensed trademarks (such as cutie marks)

Q: I have a really amazing idea that needs illustration but I cannot pay you. However, it will be great exposure for you. Will you do it?

A: I am sorry but again I do not have the time nor resources to devote to free projects.

Q: I cannot pay you for my illustration commission but you will receive royalties. Will you do it?

A: You can discuss it with me but chances are I will not be able to do it.

Q: I have an ongoing project that will require a lot of work over time. Can I pay you to be that artist and devote time to an ongoing project?

A: I would be happy to provided the deadlines fit around other paid work and shows I might have committed to.

Nemean
I adore hairless creatures, the wrinklier the better. They always seem so wise.  I was hired to paint this piece for a Sphynx breeder who purchased the rights to use it however the original is still for sale and I also have fineart prints of it.  Please email at ShePaintswithBlood@gmail.com if you are interested.

ECO by ShePaintsWithBlood
ECO
We're just trying to play a part 'cause we're all just made of stars...

Album art for David Maxim Micic's EP ECO

The second cover I painted for one of my favourite musical artists.  I had envisioned a version of this creature to his music before I ever knew I would be working with him.  I was riding in a car driving through Sedona Arizona listening to a song off BILO 3.0 called Wrinkle Maze and I thought of this massive elk beast which I later changed and re-envisioned for this cover because it fit the whole silly story I came up with for this project.  <3

You can listen for free here but please be sure to buy it if you like it. 
If you like that, check out some of his other work such as BILO 3.0 You will be very glad you did!

EGO by ShePaintsWithBlood
EGO
Egostism is the drive to maintain an enhanced favorable view of oneself...

Album art for David Maxim Micic's EP EGO

If you have not listened to David's work I highly recommend it.  Such otherworldly delight stacked upon mountains of talent, heart and soul.  His music has been such a positive drive in my own art and getting to work on this cover was a huge honor <3

You can listen for free here but please be sure to buy it if you like it.

Tips Every Artist Should Know!

Don't overuse your eraser, ESPECIALLY when sketching. I hardly use them at all during a sketch, unless I'm refining things or I made a serious mistake. You'll spend less time erasing and more time sketching, and you'll learn how to convert your mistakes into something else. It makes for good practice and it gives your sketch more flow to it (I find, anyway).
And kinda to go along with the eraser part, use light, flowing lines when sketching. Light is easier to mask than dark, and flowing lines are more enjoyable.~LuxDani

I use the above tip more than ever these days since I mostly only draw via ballpoint pen. I have to agree, it really helps you learn to be more careful and get an eye for beauty among messiness.

...Drawing an animal(or human) that you've never drawn before.(like me drawing big cats, or canines) DON'T draw from a cartoon, draw from a photo. Its perfectly alright if you spend an hour looking over dA or the internet, and don't get discouraged, looking for a reference photo is part of the drawing process. Once you find a photo you like make sure that you have the artist's permission to reference it, respect the artist's wishes if they say no! When you have the photo begin blocking in the animal(or person) with simple shapes, if its frustrating find more photos to reference from and practice drawing that creature. The best advice I can offer from that point is don't give up, even if you think your end result looks horrible, stick with it!~HorseCookies

Try mirroring your drawing to see mistakes you didn't notice before. If it's a real life drawing, put it in front of a mirror and look at the reflection. Or, if the paper is thin enough, you can also turn it around and hold it in a way that the light shines through and you can see it from behind... you'll then see a mirrored result too. ~JWiesner

One thing that has really helped me out is asking friends and family to look at a drawing. I've often found that a different set of eyes can pick out mistakes you didn't notice for one reason or another, something that applies to both art and writing. ~Inkwerk

Thumbnail something before you draw it. This is definitely something I tell myself again and again.

I'm one of those people who start with a face and then work the composition from there. Which, while effective, can sort of affect the final outcome. Like writing, drawing can be planned ahead. For big pieces, I draw a small box to represent the piece of paper I'll be drawing on (the actual size of the box depends on what you like, i make mine about a 4th of a page) and sketching in the basic idea. Your subject would be standing here, his background would be so, etc. ~thewintercynic

Try facing your characters a different way than you would normally comfortably draw them in. If you always draw facing to the right, try drawing to the left a few times. It is really excellent to be comfortable with both and cuts down a ton of stress when referencing.~ShePaintsWithBlood

Each of us have unique structure. We're all have different heights, weights, and ways we carry ourselves. As artists this can be a challenge when it comes to portraying our characters. If you can turn them into black silhouetted shapes and others can still tell them apart easily you have succeeded. It shouldn't be because of hairstyle or the outlines of their clothes but rather who they are. This way your characters can be as diverse and dimensional as those in the real world. ~FlameShuken

I just stumbled upon this video

img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/…

and was worried at first, but the mouse turns out to be fine. It's actually adorable to watch the animal not being able to resist the peanutbutter decoy and actually learn after a while how to get it. x) Luckily, the bucket wasn't too large for the mouse to jump out of. (At least it would be a humane trap if the trapper checked for mice frequently.)

I'm starting to see myself and chocolate in this, haha. I love mice. <3

I was just googling humidifiers and found this really clever design idea by Gonglue Jiang which will make you notice when you need to refill water:

www.best-practice-business.de/…

Of course it's a fake flower but the idea is neat, and also seems to look more attractive for using in a living room. Sadly, it's not for sale yet, as I read.

Aww what a cute idea!  I have seen some really cool looking humidifiers before nothing quite so clever as this!  I hope it goes on sale at some point! :blackrose:
