Artwork Commissions

EDIT: This page is under construction! I haven’t updated it since 2012, and my art has gottenย so much better. And my style has changed slightly. So yeah.

In addition to being a writer, I am also an artist.

I am a graphite pencil artist. I draw horses, humans, and landscape (admittedly, the latter is usually in pen), but I can also draw anything else with a reference picture. I occasionally dabble in colored pencils with somewhat dubious results. Sharpie and (rarely!) colored markers are also within my repertoire. Also, just this past month, I’ve gotten into painting, and I love it.

Here’s how my commissions work:

1. Decide what sort of drawing you want. You can take a look at the ones below to see my style.

2. Email me at merciadragonslayer [at] gmail [dot] com. You’ll have to be VERY specific in what you want–provide reference pictures, detailed descriptions, story excerpts, anything that will help me get the drawing done.

3. Once we get all the details settled, I’ll do a quick sketch and email it to you. If it meets your satisfaction, you’ll pay me via paypal and your drawing will be in the mail within two weeks (unless otherwise specified).

Drawings are $10-$20, depending on how long it takes me to draw it and how far away from me you live. If you live overseas, I will add on the cost of shipping the drawing to you.

I also have illustration packages available for students of the One Year Adventure Novel curriculum.

$40 for five illustrations

$80 for ten illustrations

If you are an OYAN student and wish to take advantage of these packages, please PM me on the forum.

All other illustration packages are as follows:

$45 for five illustrations

$90 for ten illustrations

The reason I offer OYAN students a discount is because they’re students and probably can’t afford anything really expensive. They’re also my friends, and I feel bad about charging my friends. Unfortunately, I need to charge something or else I won’t be able to buy my supplies–hence the discount.

All drawings are done on either Bristol Board or white cardstock, depending on what I have available. As of right now, I do NOT do framed drawings. Sorry.

The drawings you buy belong to you, obviously. I don’t care what you do with them after they leave my hands as long as you don’t tell the world you drew them. Well, and a link back here would be awesome. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A few samples of my work below. (C) me, obviously. If I see these floating about the internet without my express permission, I will be most displeased. Thanks for helping me protect my copyright! (Apologies for the horrid quality. When I get my computer/scanner up and running, I’ll make some better copies.)

    These are lovely! I am also an artist, and stumbled on your blog through Roots Growing Deep.. thanks for sharing!

    • Wow, thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€ If I may ask, how’d you stumble onto Emiga’s blog? (She’s curious. :P)

      • Marli Renee says:

        Ah, long blog networking story ๐Ÿ™‚ I have worked with Leah Good on book blogging before, and she recommended your book blog… I commented on there, and Emiga replied. Cue singing ::it’s a small world after all:: I love networking with other bloggers and have really enjoyed reading both of your blogs!

      • Oh! Wow! It is a small world! Hehe. I thought for sure you’d be someone Emiga knew, but apparently not. How fun! I love networking and blogs and such. I should probably do more of it… Maybe this spring, while I’m getting back into the swing of writing more. I’ll be sure to swing by and check you out, sooner rather than later, I hope. ๐Ÿ™‚
