Commission Fundraising

Last Tuesday, I announced opening myself up for cheap watercolor commissions.  I need to pay bills when I'm not working for the next month!  The response was amazing!  SO many people wanted one, and nearly every payment I've been given so far has been over the amount I asked for!  People are really incredible.

Somehow I managed to finish nearly 30 within the week.  Here are most of them!  (A few people wanted the finished art to be a surprise, so I'll have to post those later.)

From left to right, starting from the top:
Gus & Jepperd from Sweet Tooth, Batgirl, Superboy & Tim Drake, Derpy Hooves, Derpy again, and Epstein, the mascot from Alternative Comics, a comic book shop!

Here, we have:  Captain Four-Color, Golden Age Flash & Barry Allen, Supersnipe from Strange Adventures, Bat-Mite riding Bat-Hound, and a customer's son as a pirate.

The top left here is of Byte-Size Bandit, one of the Fresh Meat for the Maine Roller Derby, blocking a unicorn.  Next to that is my friend Nick winning against Hal Jordan and Batman at Smash Bros. Brawl.  Then we have some Adventure Time fan art from one of the new episodes, and my friend Liz's dog Zabu, King of the tennis balls.

These next two sets were my favorite:  Finn & the Flame Princess, Dash Pinkie & Fluttershy, the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Twilight Sparkle & Spike, and Celestia & Luna.  These were starting to get harder and harder to give away.

These last two are my absolute favorites.  I had a request for a White Water Rafting theme and a Zen Koi Fish theme.  I try not to toot my own horn, but I might be making a koi fish for myself at some point.

I took a short break from the watercolors on Saturday to make this crayon picture of the Jersey Devil.  Look for it the next time you visit the Maine Cryptozoology Museum!

I can still take requests for commissions, but they won't be finished for a few weeks.  Surgery is in a few days and I'll be down for the count at least a week!
