COMMISSION: Gundam Lady

Hiya readers! Tonight I’m posting the art on here much earlier than on social media. Only the true Dustlander fans are reading this right now.

This is a brand-new piece of art commissioned by a gal I knew in high school! It’s been fun and challenging to draw. You might think the design (a Gundam head on a human body) is a little strange, but it’s really grown on me as I’ve worked on it. It kinda reminds me of a BIONICLE mask!

Shoutout to the folks at Adobe who helped me recover this piece after Adobe Sketch glitched and deleted it about 20 hours in. I feel like I owe you guys!

COMMISSIONS: the2parker and Electric Skyfish

Hi! It’s me again. I’ve been working on a number of different pieces as well as a bunch of coursework here at BYU. College is hard, but I feel I’m adjusting pretty well–and finding more time to draw to boot!

In between classes, I found the time to whip up these commissions for my good friends Parker and Jack (AKA the2parker and Electric Skyfish). I had a lot of fun on these, trying to make them are simple and clean as possible. I also tested out a new style here–a combination of leaky fountain pen and watercolor brushes that just screams “minimalism”. This will probably be my go-to format for commissions from now on, since it’s less time-consuming than my more refined black lineart and blocks of color.

In case you’re interested, these are $20 apiece and take only a day or two! It’s a steal of a deal. Just message me on social media or email me at dustlander@outlook.com with the details and a picture of yourself.

COMMISSION: Sammy

Happy New Year, everyone! I slapped this together in a few hours for my little brother Sammy’s birthday–it started simple, but got more complicated as I kept working. You might notice that the black outline is actually pencil here, although the colored ink is the same as normal. This turned out to be much less of a hassle than the usual black ink, so I’m considering using this style more often in the future.

At the very least, the next two comics will be retaining the original OneNote style. I’m actually making quite a bit of progress on them and a couple more projects, which I hope will be ready for you all soon.

Feel free to contact me if you’d like a relatively simple caricature like Sammy here! Prices are low at the moment.

COMMISSON: Pro-Crastinator

Hey everyone! Good to be back–I have a feeling my rough patch is almost over.

Down to business. Well, my good friend Pro-Crastinator asked me to draw him up this piece a few months ago. As you might guess from my erratic posting schedule, I quickly became very busy with track and field, homework, etc. Ironically enough, I was the one who procrastinated this commission, despite my customer’s fitting title… yet here I am, posting about it this very moment, wondering to myself, “How did I end up getting this done?”.

Though I took my sweet time completing this thing, I love the way it came out. Thanks to my friend’s plethora of source material, I knew exactly what to draw and really tried to flesh out the character and the world he had in mind. This is an example of a larger, desktop wallpaper-sized commission ($25-$50); though these pieces take more time and are a bit pricier, I assure you that they’re worth every penny. And I have a lot more fun drawing them!

Now that I’ve got this done, I can finally get to working on the next comic–no rest for the teenage internet cartoonist, I suppose. In the meantime, be sure to check out Pro-Crastinator’s own work on DeviantArt and SoundCloud!
