Commissions

Fri Dec 16, 2016, 9:18 PM


Copyright 2010 Journal Skin by Airamneleb


Dear good people of DeviantART,

A lot of people send me Notes asking about commissions,
and I had to type the same things when I reply.
So here is to clarify things a little bit :)
After this, I'm still going to reply every single Note,
but hopefully a little shorter :XD:


YES, I DO COMMISSIONS! I accept:
- Character art; fantasy, scifi, for things like books and TCG.
- sexy pin-up, superheroes, couples.
- if you're in Jakarta (Indonesia), I accept small to medium tattooing.

 
However, i will NOT accept:
- Nude, hentai, yaoi, yuri, gore, vore, etc.
(I love sexy pin-up revealing characters, but no porn pls)
- Drawing people's likeness.
Base model is okay, but I really don't want to draw your wife or your mum (no offense)
- Children illustration. Just because I suck at it.
- Caricatures or baby pictures.


= RATES =
A lot of artists conceal their prices for some reason.
I really don't know why. But I'll follow the trend anyway.
Note me for my prices.
But i can tell you that it starts from $250 for portraits/bust shot.

= TIME FRAME =
I can only handle so many commissions per month.
I have digital-art students and a new tattooing hobby, they further crams my schedule, so I hope you have a flexible deadline. Just ask me if you need something in a hurry. Don't ask for the impossible, like needing something in 3 days. It's possible but it'll look like crab, and no one wants that.

 = Further instructions =
Send me your descriptions on Note or my e-mail:
jacksontjota(at)gmail.com
with references (it can be photos, or even your own drawings! I promise I won't laugh. HA HA)
and most importantly, your canvas dimension, resolution, and any unsafe areas.
If you have no preference, I'll just do a 30 x 45" poster, which is a standard DA Print size. It's more than enough for most people. Let me know if you need special treatment on each layers (some wants full background, or full characters so they can make cut-outs). By default, I am too lazy will not do it, so you have to mention it. No extra charge :)

NB:
I'm generally shy, but I don't mind if you wanna ask about anything! you can Note me here or:
- Facebook (www.facebook.com/jacksontjota)
- Instagram (www.instagram.com/tjota_art)
- Instagram for tattoos (www.instagram.com/tjota_ink)

Happy holidays! :party:

Activity


Solstice
I haven't been in touch with pencil drawing in a long time, and it's kinda refreshing, especially after the death of a friend :'(

Plus, i get to try out (in a serious drawing) my new Pentel Fude Pinapple brush pen, so I guess this is a mixed-media drawing? also got myself a battery eraser, i get to erase small spaces and create those white lines within a shading. pretty amazing!

I also need this to practice the steadiness of my hands, since i'm in the tattooing business now. It's a better practice since a pen tablet does NOT help at all. Digital art helps in the understanding of colours and shading, but i tend to spam my screen with a lot of trial-and-error. I need to do this inking thing more often :/ (yeah yeah that's what i always say.... lol ).
plus i need to practice tattoo-related designs :giggle:

time spent: a couple of hours. Wait, why is this faster than digital ???


Thanks for viewing ! LOL

Le Porteur de Fleur, le Donneur de Vie
A painting of Laetitia :iconblossom-lullabies:
this is for you :heart:

Don't mind the title. I grabbed put that because it sounds nice. But then again, everything in French sounds sexy like a poetry :lick: haha! anyway, I tried to simulate classical oil painting style and colour palette. Not as easy as I thought! those old-time masters man. They must have known things that we don't :confused: need to study them further...

This is what I did for her previously:

Commission - Tora Hikaru
Work for :icondarkveneris: thank you!

another day another OC, this time based on the "Exalted" role-playing game. She is member of the Dawn caste of Solar Exalted. So technically, this is categorised as a fan-art OC.
Client gave me a synopsis for the story, but I'll shorten it a little bit, I think;

The story revolves around the two magical katana; Buredo (the air elemental, able to unleash storms) and Norowareta (wood/life elemental, able to drain life essence), forged by a great swordmaster/blacksmith type. The swords were passed down to one of the apprentice, and kept for generations.

Tora Hikaru is one of the younger generation, now wielding the blue sword Buredo, but her twin brother became mad (possessed?) by a demon, who then took the Norowareta sword and butchered all her family members, and fled with the sword. Hikaru eventually recovered it and, with both swords in hand, she is on a quest to hunt down and kill the demon and free her family' souls.

This is the client's first time with me, and i'll be back soon with a second one :D

Thanks for viewing ! LOL

Secrets - Experimental Heart (book III)
Work for writer Shannon Pemrick (www.shannonpemrick.com/)
A book cover illustration for her Experimental Heart fantasy series, book III, will be available soon!

The cover features the same main characters from the previous book, Eira and Raikidan.
There's also ethereal Tannek on the back of the book.
The Valkyrie is new, and never been visualised before, unlike the others. So this is her premiere :D

Secrets - Experimental Heart (book III) (edited) by tjota with titles, blurb, etc.
  Secrets - Experimental Heart (book III) - Details by tjota Details

The concept of the cover revolves around the main character Eira; her past and current lover, all woven by threads of fate represented by the red strings. She is vulnerable, yet protected by the Valkyrie (whom the characters are unable to see). Or something. It's all quite metaphorical, I can't get what's inside the mind of writers, sometimes, lol :lmao:
See the more about the work here: www.artstation.com/artwork/PJZ…

Book II:
Pieces - Hardback by tjota  Pieces (Book II) - Experimental Hearts by tjota
Book I and II available physically and digitally.

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 :)

As of mid 2016, I'm learning to be a tattoo artist, hoping that I can make use of my painting skills on skin. So far, it has been fun and challenging!

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