Over 40 Seals in One Painting - A Commissioned Watercolor Painting

a_ref_seals
 In summer 2020 I got to create this very detailed watercolor painting with more than 40 seals in it! Definitely one of those paintings that properly test my patience. The original size of this commission was A2 (59,4 x 42 cm) and the client had a few specific things she wanted included into the painting. Some examples of these are t...

Faunus Lady - A Commissioned Digital Logo Design

a_ref_digilogo
Last summer I was commissioned a logo for an online store. The client wanted it done digitally, which I was delighted about since I very rarely get to do such commissions. The idea of the logo was to have a portrait of a faunus lady, vaguely resembling the face of the commissioner. Foresty tones, such as different greens and browns,&...

My Second Cat Portrait Commission

a_ref_catcom
This post is all about a commissioned watercolor painting I created in the beginning of summer. Before starting to work on the painting, I showed the client the cat portrait I had made a year ago. She liked the composition and we agreed I'd make this portrait in a similar way. The client had a list of certain plants that she wan...

A Custom Birthday Card Commission

a_ref_card
The first time I got to create a digitally colored drawing as a commission! I mean, I do love watercolors but it was nice to do something a little different. Painting with watercolors is after all, to me, the most time (and brain-energy) consuming way of creating art.This cheerful fox was a custom design for a birthday card. The clie...

The Creation of My Biggest Watercolor Painting Commission

a_rat_ref
Nine rats living in a fantasy forest; the most detailed large-scale painting I've ever done so far. The painting process took me about one and a half months from start to finish, though I should point out I did not work on this commission full-time. I also had other tasks and projects that I worked on during that time....

The Creation of a Custom Wedding Card

a_wed_feature
While I was still working on my biggest single watercolor painting commission (a blog post about that will be up later on), I created this simple custom wedding card for a family member. It was nice to make something small and simple after spending so much time on the big commission. The only instruction I got for this wedding card w...

Cat Portrait - Commission

a_catfeature
So far, I have had the chance to create portraits of humans and dogs, but this time it was, for the first time, a cat.This particular cat had had a special relationship with pansies, and the commissioner wanted to have her furry friend portrayed with them, thus I got the idea of the kitty being surrounded with these flowers, holding one&n...

3 Commissions for 3 Businesses

a_comfeature
Just before the busy summer-sales-season, I got to create three commissions that were all for three different businesses. The first one was a logo design, second a caricature for a business card, and the third another logo design. I'm sharing the work-in-progress material here as usual, with some more details about the creation processes ...

Wedding Portrait - Commission (wip)

a_wed_feature
This painting took me surprisingly little time considering it was A2-sized. But then again, the commissioner wished the painting to remain rather simple and wanted the surroundings of the couple to be blurry. So, at the end, the only places where I really needed to pay attention were the faces of the two people, and their upper bodies. As can ...

I needed to paint this commission three times to be satisfied...

a_cherry_feature
At the end, not giving up was certainly the right thing to do with this commission. To me, it is really important that I can be proud of the artworks that I create, especially so when it is a commission. I believe when I can look at my painting and know that I've truly and honestly given it my best, the client will be happy with it a...

FLOWER HEDGEHOG - COMMISSION IN PROGRESS

a_fhcommission_featured
Ever since I drew my first flower-hedgehog as one of my 2017 inktober drawings, the idea of a hedgehog carrying flowers in her back instead of spikes, has been very popular. This is why I wanted to draw another hedgehog for my coloring book (all the three versions are now available on Wonder SHOP) and now, I was commissioned to create this flo...

PORTRAITS OF A SHETLAND SHEEP DOG - COMMISSION IN PROGRESS

a_sheepdog_feature
 If you follow me on social media, you've most certainly seen some pictures of a Shetland sheep dog a while ago. I had the honor of drawing four portraits of this lovely dog as a commission. It was the first time someone commissioned me a dog portrait, and also the first time the technique requested was ink drawing. However, since I'm ver...

IT TURNED OUT EVEN CUTER THAN I EXPECTED!

Feature-4
Sure, my plan was to make this commission a cute one. That's what the client wanted after all. But somehow, the way this little fellow turned out has even more of cuteness than I intended. Needless to say, I'm very happy with this painting of mine and I hope the client is going to like it as much as I do. Then, of course, the work-in-progress pictu...

A SONG TO THE MOON - COMMISSION PROGRESS

15_feature
One of the most pleasant commissions I've ever received! Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it. The instructions I got from the client for this painting were: wolf, forest, full moon, blue ...

UNICORN - COMMISSION PROGRESS

Feature-21
 This commission was finished in one single day. I did work on it all day long but it was still nice to get it done so swiftly (I'm used to spending several days on my paintings). I guess I was overly excited to paint the unicorn since I forgot to take the picture of the sketch before starting the coloring.Click on the picture on the left...
