Commission: Floor 21 by tjota
Commission: Floor 21
Alternate book covers commissioned by jasonluthor :iconjasonluthor:
The book can be found on Amazon, here: amzn.to/1chWpHn

Here is the synopsis by the author:
"As humanity lives out the remainder of its existence at the top of an isolated apartment tower, young Jackie dares to question Tower Authority and their ban on traveling into the tower's depths. Intelligent and unyielding, Jackie ventures into the shadows of the floors below. But will her strong will and refusal to be quiet—in a society whose greatest pride is hiding the past—bring understanding of how humanity became trapped in the tower she has always called home, or will it simply be her undoing?"

Thanks for viewing !

Commission: Letycja Szuba by tjota
Commission: Letycja Szuba
Commission for :iconvaryar77:
It's an OC-fanart of Mage: The Ascension. Her name is Letycja Szuba and she's part of the Border Corps Division of the Void Engineers organization of mages. Basically she's a space marine with techno-magical equipment, like a plasma rifle and heat-absorptive armour!

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).

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:

I made this when I actually had money left ;-; and I doubt you do anything for free. So call it off, sorry to waste your time.
