Hey folks! I’ve decided to start offering monthly commission specials- I think it’ll be a fun way to both offer some discounted prices, while also allowing me to experiment and cater to varying art whims. We all win, woo!

Anyway! I’m in a sketch colorful traditional mood, so that’s culminated into the first month’s offerings! (Yes, it is late into April— whoops. I will keep this one going until I post the next one in May if slots happen to remain open that long.)

Busts are $25 each, and I am willing to send the originals if you let me know you’re interested in such before I start sketching! Shipping prices apply for that option- $3 in the US, per-estimate international.

Slots:

1.
2.
3.

Thanks folks! I will finally be posting an originals giveaway tomorrow evening so check back for that as well! (And, as always- if you can’t partake right now, reblogs are eternally appreciated!)

Hey folks! Commissions are finally here! Are you excited? I’m excited; It’s been long enough coming!

I’ll do just about any subject matter, and though what I’ve listed above is for digital commissions, I’m happy to also do traditional mediums or other types of work! Backgrounds, looser or more refined work, full illustrations… whatever you’re looking for, I’ll be happy to give you a quote or scale work to match what you can afford!

More examples of my work can be found in my archive or on Weasyl, as well as my website.

Slots are as follows:

1. Rory

3.

Just email me at cael.illus@gmail.com if you’re interested or have any questions; I don’t trust tumblr’s message system very well, and I don’t want to lose your information!

I sincerely appreciate everyone’s support and feedback the last few years. I’m really looking forward to being able to do art specifically for people again! Even if you aren’t able to or interested in commissioning me right now, any reblogs to help support me and get the message out there are greatly appreciated. Thank you again!

ebay bunny mugs- the matching ones are jamar mallory mugs which means you use a mold to make a mug then you paint it to suit your idea of adorable bunny! what can go wrong!

i have so many pictures of these now i couldn’t include them all but they are ALL special.

if i lived on my own i’d throw out all other mugs and only have hideously nightmare rabbit mugs and invite people over for sleepovers with cocoa and warm breakfasts just so they’d have to use these unprepared. <3

i’m the biggest hipster, i just have to embrace it at this point.

I keep scrolling back to look at the one with the bright red lipstick and the nose stubble. I I am reblogging it to exorcise it. now it will haunt you instead.

infinity-imagined:

Artistic microscope slides produced in the Victorian era (1840~1900) by arranging hundreds of tiny diatoms into intricate patterns.  This was often accomplished by using a single hair to move the diatoms in a special chamber that prevented disturbance to the slide.  The fabrication of these amazing objects must have required incredible patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand.

they’re made of diatoms! that’s a major type of phytoplankton; basically this is microscopic algae arranged to look like button decorations on pretty dresses by some demented victorian scientists and if you don’t think that’s cool then you need to stare at it some more.

HELLO

The petition to legally recognize non-binary genders expired because it did not reach 100,000 signatures in time.

HERE IS A NEW PETITION. It expires April 20th. DO NOT LET THIS ONE FAIL AS WELL.

33.5k signatures and almost 55k reblogs. 

you guys, reblogging is IMPORTANT but when there’s 100,000 signatures needed, 21,500 people NOT signing is a HUGE HIT.

SIGN THEN BOOST.

There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.
