This winter was probably the most dullest period since I've started to turn my ideas into commissions. There were various reasons for this ranging from terrible currency exchange rate (how would you feel if your commission expenses suddenly jumped twice?) to my typical winter depression which was becoming stronger or weaker at certain periods but never fully let go until the beginning of March.
Still there were some nice commissions that I would like to show you.
1.2. A marvelous couple of pictures (with clean and dirty feet) done by great hofit-mil.deviantart.com/ featuring one of my favorite singers - Shakira. Dressed in quite an unusual outfit and performing barefoot in some private club. Because of her habit to perform in bare feet, she is and will remain a source of inspiration for my future commissions.
Selvaria (Valkyria) Foot WorshipAlicia woke up shocked in a dark room on a cold stone floor, breathing heavily as she stood quickly before falling back to her knees from exhaustion trying to remember desperately why she was in a place like this. She remembered that the Imperial Army had been invading her home and that she along with the rest of her squad fought valiantly in a final attempt to stop the invaders, it went blank after that. Alicia figured that the searing head ache she had as well as the large lump on her head indicated that she had been knocked unconscious and had been captured by the enemy, she just couldn't understand why. A midst her thoughts Alicia felt a chilled draft over her body as she looked down to see what was wrong only to find that her uniform as well as the rest of her clothes had been stripped away and completely replaced. Alicia's headdress that she normally wore had been left alone and her brown hair was still kept nicely inside of it without any issue, her underwear had been removed anAn entertaining short story done by an excellent writer kslider.deviantart.com/ featuring Alicia Melchiott and Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles. I watched some livestreams of this game and got inspired enough to ask for it. The title of the story pretty much describes what you will see there.
4. A true masterpiece done by impressive ronggo.deviantart.com/ . Featuring my genie character Julia trying to get rid of her magic genie costume. I just adore the amount of details and accurate style so I won't hesitate to recommend ronggo.deviantart.com/ of you need a high-quality commission. This drawing proves his skill very well.
There is also a collage of this picture that I'll post someday in my gallery. Maybe when I'll write a story about her.
And speaking about stories. I've finally managed to actually write one! Here it is
The cursed anklets. (updated)
Amani stepped out of the subway train along with the crowd and headed towards the passage to another station. Her heels clacked against the tile floor as she walked in quick steps.
She wasn't in a hurry actually, just wanted to stay in subway as little as possible. With those... ordinary people.
That's right, Amani, a 22 year old student of African descent was quite an arrogant one. Especially for a person who struggled to pay her university and housing bills just half a year ago.
But she was born under a lucky star after all. During her trainee program in the corporation she was noticed by one of the directors. Some smalltalk, a couple of smiles and compliments... And the boss, who had an affection for exotic ladies, fell victim to the dark-skinned girl's charms.
And there was something to fall for. Amani was not only tall and slender leggy girl but she possessed a certain sense of style, often absent among the girls of her generation. While they often wo
And here is a link to full-sized illustration done by amazing linart.deviantart.com/ that goes with it. Ain't it beautiful?
Been trying since around 2008 but only now got enough willpower and stamina to walk through the whole path till the end. It was not an easy one as English is my second language. So I am eager to know if it is readable. As I have a couple of ideas for similar stories I would like to write. But if my text is uncomfortable to read, I'll probably concentrate on commissioning pictures like I did previously.
