IRON SQUAD by tjota
IRON SQUAD
Commissioned by an old friend, Hendry Biantoro. Thanks buddy!

It's one of those rare fan-art commissions that are to be printed for personal use. I thought of incorporating a lot of aspects from the movie in terms of armor design. So it's bits and pieces here and there.  Like, say, Mark 42 from Ironman 3. Also; notice the character cameos / photobomb :D
I realise I need to do more Marvel stuff, eh?

Commission: Companions by tjota
Commission: Companions
Commissioned by Rafael Vargas :iconrvargasrn:, of his characters Congo and Jura.
Congo is a half-elf mage in search of his human father. During his adventures, he met Jura, a warrioress who seeks justice from a corrupt lord who murdered her brother. They eventually became husband and wife :love:

Technicalities:
Bullet; White Jura was modelled after Yennefer of Vengerberg from the Witcher series mixed with Adriana Lima.
Bullet; White Congo was... err, no reference for that guy. Influenced by Warcraft movie. I think it was a great movie!
Bullet; White As usual, I always mix a bit of realism into my fantasy drawings. No bikini armor, and no 5-inch thick armor or swords bigger than the characters, and all that.
Bullet; White Notice the tiny details: Jura's theme is a lion which represent strength, while Congo's theme is an elk (look at his cloak pin) to represent nature.
Bullet; White The pose also symbolises a theme of "covering each other's backs". Congo's wide arm protecting his lover below him, but Jura's pose gives an impression of a swift, low, close-quarter attack.
Bullet; White See my Artstation account for the sketches and progress: www.artstation.com/artwork/bD2…

Zems - Terrorhound by tjota
Zems - Terrorhound
First for Zems online card game this year, commissioned by ImpulseLtd
It's an illustration of a dog; a hunting hound chasing-- someone.
This made me realise I'm not that accustomed to painting dogs. Not one of those fantasy mutated demon dog! A real, proper dog.
Er-- i really don't know what breed this is, so I guess it's still considered fantasy. lmao :crazy: oh well.

Legend of the Three Roses by tjota
Legend of the Three Roses
Commissioned by Jason Hubbard (Fromtheshadowland) for his upcoming book cover. thank you!

The book's story is about an assassination attempt that goes wrong and brings these two together, Callie and Kane. Callie's a rogue-type from a clan of them who consider themselves a family. Kane is noble-born who, until recently, was apprenticed to a sorcerer. Kane overheard King Hugo mention "Three Roses," and he tries to use it as a bargaining chip with Callie's clan in exchange for his freedom...

In other words, a boy and a girl from different tracks meet, having a great adventure!

Indonesia
Hi! thanks for dropping by and care enough to try and find out about me!

I'm an Indonesia-based freelance digital painter who tends to rely much on realism, detail and extreme lighting for attractions. Picked up my first tablet in 2008, but only got into it more seriously after 2010. Started doing work for free or, at the very least, very cheaply. (Everybody has to start somewhere, right? lol)

My skills are purely self-taught, in a sense that I never took proper art classes of any kind. I graduated from RMIT University, Melbourne, with a Multimedia Degree. Picked up a couple of useful skills in 3D, film FX, animations and photography along the way, though most of them aren't used much lately. I learn by watching other artists and doing artwork every day :)

I'm also a self-taught amateur guitarist and pianist.
I enjoy playing PS4 games, watching sci-fi/action movies and series. :woohoo:
Interests
Hello!

It's near the end of a year again, and time flies so fast! (no thanks to you, #fallout4 ) :lol:
I don't know if you guys have been following my work, but I can tell you I have been a full-time freelancer since 2013. I made new friends, multiple recurring clients, increased my overall qualities, and of course get more Watchers here! (thank you so much guys!). But I have been feeling rather 'out of touch' recently, so to speak. Here's why (I think);

My commissioning career kick-started when I published a series of original characters. Since then, the requests never stopped. But years before that, I made a series of Powerpuff fan-art, and people loved it! But alas, fan-arts here don't pay the bills, so I must oblige to those who do, naturally. I can try to do both, but for some reason, it always feel exhausting to spend more time drawing them. At least that's what I used to think. But what if I can change that? I have seen people get paid when they have enough Youtube views doing what they love. Can I do that too?

I turn my eyes to websites like Gumroad and Patreon, and it seems possible (maybe Youtube?). if I have enough followers, that is. I don't know. I haven't tried them or talked to those who have. Do you think it's a good idea? I *want* it to work. I always feel envious whenever I see artists do tons of fan-art of their favourite game or movie characters. I'm quite a nerd, and nothing makes me happier than contributing awesome stuff!

PS: call me one of those guys who's afraid to change (inertia), and doesn't like public appearances. lol ! it may take some convincing before I have the courage to put out my voice or face to the internet.

So yeah, starting 2016, I think I might reduce the number commissions in favour of doing some fan-art, at least one per month (or maybe two, soon after). I said 'reduce', not stop :D I can't abandon my loyal customers now, can I? :lol:
You think it's a good idea? Or anyone has any input to sites like Patreon? let me know! :)

PPS: This entry never meant to be a tip on how to gain more watchers or commission requests, yeah. If you want, I can write about things that *I think* works pretty well (for me, at least).
  • Listening to: Jess Greenberg
  • Reading: One Punch Man
  • Watching: Limitless TV series - Arrow/Flash
