ArtRage painting
Whimsical, painterly, messy. Artrage is a fun program to paint in, and it gives interesting results! The default size is 1024 x 768, either portrait or landscape, but you can specify others, to a maximum size of 2048 x 2048. Please send me your references/description of the subject matter, and specify any of the following: mood, colors, simulated medium (oil paint is my favorite), or anything else you can think of.
Colored Ink Drawing
I will draw something with my fountain pen and then color it in photoshop. The level of complexity will probably be somewhere between the examples I've given. Not as low detail as the trolls, but not as high detail as Corax. It all depends on what you ask for. Please also specify colors and style of coloring, and whether you want a clear or gradient background.
Extensive Photoshop
A buncha layers, a buncha colors, textures, realistic lighting (or not). Please send me any source images you desire to be included in the pic and make sure you have the rights to that source. References are always appreciated, especially for this kind of work.

Oh hello, thanks for the comment. I don't generally do adventure style stuff on my deviant art though.
meganbednarz Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2015   General Artist
I generally don't even post on my deviant art anymore so ... I guess that makes two of us? :)
