Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take commissions?
Occasionally, but only in small batches. Be sure to +Watch me if you're interested, I always post a deviation with information whenever I open up a batch of commissions! :)

Do you take requests?
Unfortunately not, client work eats up most of my days and time outside of that is for personal work and study.

How did you learn to draw?
In a word: practice. I did go to art school and I learned a lot of useful stuff there, but art school isn't a necessity and anyone can learn to draw if you're willing to invest a lot of time and practice diligently.

How do you get your paintings so clean?
In a word: patience. I spend easily 30+ hours painting a single character, going in and making sure everything that needs to be clean is clean, and everything that's rough is intentionally rough. For more specifics on my process, check out the Tutorials & Resources folder in my gallery.

Can I use your art for my project?
It depends, if it's just for you and just for fun like a D&D campaign with your friends I don't mind, but for any projects / content that involve any kind of profit or advertising of another product or website you will need to get my permission first. If in doubt, please ask first.


Kumbhalayan Yeti by Andantonius
Kumbhalayan Yeti
Snow cone, anyone? New card for the Kumbhlayan Yeti skin that was released in yesterday's patch! Explored some new techniques for painting fur on this guy and, for the most part, think it turned out pretty well. I've also been playing Kumbha a lot lately, so that was fun. Uppercut OP. =P

CAO 001 by Andantonius
CAO 001
3 or 4-ish hour portrait study for Jonathan Hardesty's new ‪‎CAO Art Challenge‬ group on Facebook. Experimenting with some digital oil brushes I made a while back and never used, pretty happy with how it turned out. :D
Desert Queen Serqet by Andantonius
Desert Queen Serqet
This lovely lady was also revealed in this week's patch notes, the Desert Queen skin for Serqet which I will totally be buying next week because gold and turquoise is my favorite color scheme evar.

I would also like to thank Sketchup for saving me from having to draw those tail pieces rotating in perspective.

Void Wyrm Kukulkan by Andantonius
Void Wyrm Kukulkan
New Smite card! I've been super excited to show this one and it finally got revealed a few days ago; the new Void Wyrm skin for Kukulkan. I had a blast painting this guy, and realized I need to paint more creatures and monsters, cause they're way fun. :D

Thor Wrath of Valhalla by Andantonius
Thor Wrath of Valhalla
Smite rampage! This card got revealed a few days ago for Thor's new Wrath of Valhalla skin. Was a super fun one to work on as I haven't painted the super buff muscles in a long time. Plus excessive glowy things!

Howdy folks! As usual it's been forever since my last journal entry, but I just wanted to check in real quick and let you all know how much I appreciate all your support and kind comments on my work!

I always promised myself I'd reply to every comment, but as often happens with childhood dreams it's not as practical as I'd like it to be. Illustration takes a lot of time, and apparently adults have to buy groceries and do taxes or something? I don't know, I never got my info packet.

But in any case, thank you all for all your comments, favorites, and shares! It really means a lot to me, and though I don't always have time to reply I read every single one. And if you ever have questions feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer. :)

As always, more art is coming soon! And I'm hoping some more tutorials as well.

Live long and draw-sper!
