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.
3. An 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
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.
