Hi Everyone,
Just to let everyone know, I will be updating my Commissions poster soon. So you can see what services I am offering and the prices.

It has been a great 4 months of free time for me, I have crammed it with as much ambitious artwork as I can physically do. I will be starting a new season of work very soon, so I may have less time in the evening to work on my animations. I will keep to my schedule, something new every two weeks on a tuesday, but I will keep it simple.
If there is something I am burning to get out there and the complexity cant be helped, I will just do it and will post it when its done. This will mean not much time for commissions either, so stay tuned for when I announce I will be taking request. I will keep all your messages highlighted and I will get in touch with every last one to let you know if you have been successful. :)

Have a Great 2015 guys, and plenty more artwork! ^_^

Hi Everyone, here is my commissions poster for 2015. If you are interested, feel free to send me a note on here for what you would like, I will add you to a queue, first come first served. I am keen to draw all kinds of characters.
Just to make it very clear,I can Only do original characters. I cant draw copy written characters, this includes comics, movies, TV shows, anime, etc. Don't misunderstand, sure I can draw in a comicbook "style" or an "anime" style, but if that character is Captain America or Motoko Kusunagi say, well those charcters belong to someone, and by profiting from their work and not giving them a cut is tantamount to stealing. (The times I have drawn them is 100% non-profit, always) So long as you give me characters you invented, were gonna get along just fine. :)
Also, Its humans, aliens, Mutants, Monsters, males, females, Young, Old, robots, power armor, animal characters and everything inbetween that are my primary drawing focus.

I am offering hand drawn artwork currently, I will offer photoshop art one day, just not right now. For your information I am working full time, just so im not leaving you waiting forever, we will send notes agreeing on a soft deadline.

I need three very simple things:

-I NEED a character sheet, front and back,side, close up of the face, at minimum front and back of your character. 

If you don't have one to hand, have a go at drawing it yourself, nothing fancy, just a guide so I know what it is I am working from. Colours can be in any medium, colour pens, pencils etc.

-A guide for what you want from an animation, do you want a walk cycle, a gesture, a martial arts pose? 

Don't be shy to say Exactly what you want, PLEASE BE SPECIFIC! 

The MORE information you give me , the more I have to work with! 

 Vague is Bad, Vague is a NONO, I will poke and prod you for information until I get exactly what I need! it will be a learning experience for the both of us, trust me! ^_^

-And finally,Adjust your expectations!

There are no guarantees and not all commissions are simple. I will look over your idea and will tell you what needs to be done. I may even suggest streamling a design for the purposes of animation. There is a Reason why cartoons of today go with simple, repeatable patterns, because they are simple and repeatable and less stress on the guy who has to draw them day in day out from pose to pose. That said, All animators aim for the best result, so if I am suggesting changing something, its to the benefit of your final piece. So please, don't expect something earth shattering and don't be too precious, ok.

And final finally, the payment method is through Paypal, please contact me for more information.
Thank you for Reading! You are Awesome!

_Axi :)

What do you use to colour your doodles?
AlexBaxtheDarkSide Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2014  Professional General Artist
Hi Grimbot,
I mostly use sharpies you can buy in the shops. also the paper quality is a key thing that makes the colours pop so much. I buy the A4 sketchpads with good quality paper from an art shop called rymans.
i also use permant marker for large areas of colour,
copic ciaos 
and lastly pro markers.
All blend to make some nice solid colour.
thanks for askin.
You can find them all on , should think its the same in other regions,
happy arting:)
(Very nice MOTU art BTW) :)
