Hey Internet! Did you know that I have opened commissions over at my DeviantArt site? No? Well what are you waiting for?!

These are just the sketches for the commissions I've been done thus far--think about how cool a finished piece might be! So head on over to my DA site (RomanyKate) to find out about pricing and whatnot and see how the finished pieces turned out! Hop to it! And if you don't have your own DA account--never fear! Just email me once you have an idea of what you'd like :)

First we have Steve Graves, an original character of Bryan, cartoonist and toy designer extraordinaire!

Next we have some Doctor Who themed pieces for Chris!

And here's the characters of DJ's Aerial Rave (along with some pokemon that aren't relative to the finished piece, but think about who you're talking to--when am I not doodling pokemon something or other?)

Aaand last but not least here's DareDevil and GhostRider, doin like they do, for Matt!

Not a one of these characters is mine but they were all still tons of fun to draw!

Since you're an artist...

It's obligatory self-portrait time!

Here's me on an ostrich!

And here's the sketch of the self-portrait that was featured alongside my interview in Evansville Living!

I colored the ostrich sketch for funsies and it's available for your viewing pleasure here. The finished self-portrait for the magazine can be found here at my portfolio blog. So many hyperlinks...so little time.

Artemis Iphigenea

Sketch for a personal work--planning on finishing in color soon-ish. These lovely ladies are the goddess Artemis (left) and Iphigenia (right) who will become the goddess Hecate (far right). The story goes that during the Trojan War, Agamemnon killed a deer within Artemis's sacred grove and boasted that he was the better hunter. Well once Agamemnon's ships were out to sea, the goddess stilled the winds, leaving he and all his ships stranded. By consulting an oracle, Agamemnon discovered the only way to appease the goddess would be to sacrifice his own daughter, Iphigenia. When the time came for the actual sacrifice, Iphigenia was spirited away by the goddess herself and a deer was left in her place. Artemis then transformed the mortal Iphigenia into the immortal Hecate, her partner in magic, and the triple goddess of crossroads.

In other news, drawing people actually using a bow and arrow is hard.
