The model reference is a beauty. The art is more or less a simple outline of the reference with a few discrepancies, like the cloth bei...

Full Color (Character Only)
Ninja Out of Retirement by TapSkill
Red Vs Blue Dragon Battle by TapSkill
Basuto OC Requested Color by TapSkill
Chibi BlueVagabond by TapSkill
Tokyo OC (contest entry) by TapSkill
This commission comes with sketch and full color version of the character.  Inks may also be included depending on the style requested.  If you prefer, I can color *your* ink/sketch instead.
Ink/Vector scene
Like the regular ink/vector art except an entire scene is drawn.
Sketch scene
I can sketch out an entire scene, including many characters and buildings and other scenery.
Ink/Vector Drawing
OC: Stacie Starfield by TapSkill
The next step after a sketch is the inking.  I can ink in one of 2 ways.  The first method is to simply draw cleaner lines in Photoshop.  The other method is to draw using vector drawing tools.  Vector tools can produce smoother lines more efficiently and also allow the art to scale to any resolution.  However, the traditional drawing method allows for more artistic freedom and can produce art more similar to the sketch it is based on. Note: This type of commission includes both a sketch and an ink version of the character.
Sketch character
Darkpker8 Runescape Sketch by TapSkill
Ehms RuneScape Sketch by TapSkill
I'll sketch anything you want to see, even adult-oriented things.  Feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions.
I'm now accepting commissions!

I am a little low on cash and need to move soon, so I'll take what I can get.  What that means for you is I will draw practically anything.  Want something sexually provocative, I'm game.  Want something violent, I'm up for it.  Want something in a specific style, just let me know what you want.

Price chart (ok, it's a list):

$1 = sketch of character
$5 = sketch of scene or inked character
$10 = full color character or inked scene
$15 = full color scene

Images will be saved in a standard A4 300dpi paper size using the PNG file format.  I will transfer ownership of the art to you as soon as I'm paid for the work, meaning you do not have to credit me for it and can do whatever you want with it.  However, I reserve the right to show that art in my portfolio and on my art gallery.  I also reserve the right to decline commission offers and/or cancel/refund commissions due to unforeseen reasons.  I cannot promise a time frame or due date for the finished work, but I work on a half-now-half-when-done basis.  I accept PayPal and/or DA points.

If you want a speedy response, please send me a private message.  Do not comment here unless you have questions about the commissions.  Thanks.
