CUSTOM CHARACTER/CREATURE DESIGN
This is a new commission type! Creature/character design is one of my favorite things to do with my art, and I wanted to offer this to folks that might not already have a character or creature concept 100% nailed down to get a ref sheet.
For this commission type, I’ll work with you to help solidify a concept you have, whether it's a character for a story, a special boss monster for your tabletop RPG game, or anything in-between.
There are two different tiers I'd like to offer!
I will develop a concept for you based on a very loose prompt. Includes 3 images of the concept/character.
Details to provide:
- The character/creature’s race/species and gender (if applicable).
- What do they do? (class/job/biological or ecological niche)
- What is ONE color you would like me to use in the design?
- OPTIONAL: One or two important details such as “they’re meant to be a boss-style encounter” or “they worship a specific god.”
I’ll work start-to-finish on a Free Rein design to fit your prompt, and may elaborate on it with ideas of my own. This tier is great if you like surprises, and may suit those who like the concept of Adoptables but would like a little more say in what they look like.
"A female Sphinx who is the gatekeeper for a long-lost holy place.
She appears celestial, and some details on her are gold and almost inorganic."
Working with a slightly more solid concept, I’ll still put a lot of my own design into this, but you’ll have more control over the finished result.
Feel free to provide a few more details that you’d DEFINITELY like included, such as if your character has a specific type of weapon, or if you'd like me to give them scars from a notable encounter in their life. You may also provide a small (3 short paragraphs or less) amount of story or flavor text to use as inspiration.
This commission type may be used to elaborate on or redesign a character you already have.
I will provide you with up to 3 Work-In-Progress updates, with which you’ll be able to direct me towards a concept that fits your vision
