I'm a 26 year old Artist living in Chicago and doodling to pass the time between real paid work. I also make jewelry! Wanna know more about me? Ask! Or you can follow me on tumblr at… or check out my Etsy shop!
Hey guys!  So after much thought and a few requests I have decided to take commissions again.  For now the price breakdown is as follows:

NOTE:  All commission prices include color and very basic background (as pictured). Prices are for a single person or character. Each additional character will cost and extra $5.  Please note these are baseline prices.  Very simple or very complicated commisions may qualify for lower/higher rates.

Lion Fish Mermaids
This piece was done as a part of a weekly exercise series. Every week another artist and myself challenge each other with drawing prompts and post our sketches on facebook.  I thought this one deserved an inking and coloring :).  The prompt this week was "draw a mermaid that is based on a real fish".  I drew two because I wanted to show how the spines might attach, and also because I rarely draw characters from behind.  I also tried drawing more slender body types than usual.  The fin "mohawks" are also a step away from my characters long flowing hair.  There are some things I'm not happy about but considering it was meant as a creativity exercise I didn't have time to be a perfectionist.

Updated DevID.  It's been almost 5 years since I've done a new one.  Haven't changed much physically.  Gained then lost some weight, stopped dying my hair in rainbows and now stick with brown/black as my default, and I've finally learned how to dress like a grownup.

Been trying to get better at color composition, mostly when it comes to contrasting colors and keeping consistent tone.  This is also one of my first attempts at backlighting so pardon any mistakes in that area :)
Mint Green Ombre Gauges handmade earrings. by RainbowJava
Mint Green Ombre Gauges handmade earrings.
Handmade from polymer clay with metal jewelry findings embedded into both sides.  I've been having fun playing with different color blends and tones.  This soft minty green is one of my favorites so far.  Available from my Etsy shop here:…
Pearl by RainbowJava
Second in my Steven Universe series.  While Amethyst has my favorite design, Pearl is absolutely my favorite character.  Just like the Amethyst drawing, I used to backgrounds from the opening number, redoing them in a minimalist style.  This one was a bit rough and I can see a few problems with it, but you live and learn :)

Hand drawn and inked, then digital colors.
Finally time to claw my way out of the dark ages and get a tablet.
