WAALLLL, I’ll spare you the details, but I am in pretty dire financial straits and I need to open up commissions again. I hate to do this because, um, I’m not even done with the last round of commissions (they’re on the plate for this week, though), but I’ve got to raise OHHHHHH about four thousand dollars in the next two months or so. Neat, huh?

To start off, I’m opening up ten slots for Half-Pint Hero commissions only (those are the little cutesy guys up above) starting at $25, incl shipping. These are black-and-white illos (sometimes with gray marker highlights) on 8.5x11 cardstock, they can be whatever character you’d like, or maybe a little drawing of you, or your friends, or your imaginary friends, or maybe of your enemies and you can use the drawings to taunt those guys. Your choice!

Single figure is $25, $5 for every additional figure, please drop me a line at calamityjon@gmail.com to reserve a spot and let me know what you’d like. Paypal is happily accepted. All commissions will be finished and in the mail by September 15, 2014. 

Thanks all!

Jon does super work, as you can see!!

Yeah, I don’t see what everyone’s crowing about. A little tasteful product placement never hurt anyone.

Looking forward to GUARDIANS! Here’s a commissioned sketch I did of Gamora several years ago, in one of her older costumes.

There’s some art books I wanna buy, so I’m re-opening my sketch commission list!

One figure, black & white pencil, 9”x12”: $50, plus $6 S&H.

More figures, backgrounds, and/or ink: negotiable.

Interested? Drop me an email!

EDIT July 27: I’ve got a full roster now, so the list is closed. Thanks so much for all the signal boosts, friends!!!

If you came upon this late and want to commission a sketch, contact me and I’ll shoot you a heads-up email next time I open a new commission list.

Tothfans invited me to draw a tribute to Alex Toth, so I drew three characters Toth designed for animation: Ariel, Ookla, and Thundarr.
Visit the Tothfans site to see several other tributes. Some great stuff!

As an artist, you’ll have to draw turned heads countless times. But when the head is turned, drawing the far eye poses a special challenge. This is because we must foreshorten that eye more than we’re used to, and because we’re tempted to shape it like the near eye, which is less foreshortened. Therefore, it’s useful to practice drawing the far eye by itself, without the near eye to throw you off. Print these sheets, draw the eyes, and you’ll save yourself great difficulty later.

Note that all of these eyes are facing our left. You’ll need to practice right-facing eyes as well, so flop the sheets in Photoshop, print them again, and draw those also.
