||Welcome to my Art Journal. ^^
Hi there - welcome to my Art Journal. Here you will find various pieces of art that I commission from others.
If you're interested in doing art for me, please PM or leave a message here with samples and prices, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I'm normally very picky about who I commission though because I have limited funds, and because not every style attracts me (I don't like chubby Chibi art much, for instance), so please don't feel bad if I turn you down. Please don't be scared to post your art samples though (as links please) - the most I will do is PM you privately to say no thank you if I decline. ^^
Also, if you've done art for me in the past and don't see it here, please do tell me and give me a link to the picture - I lost some of my links and so I may not have all of my art listed here. Also, if you are one of these artists and wish to have your deviant art accounts, shops, or other samples and links listed please do let me know. I'd be happy to oblige and put down your links.
Anyway, enjoy the art. n_n Please feel free to leave comments or chat in this little journal. If a post gets too full of comments, I may create another.
Also, please click the pictures to see the more detailed images on some of these - some are just too big to fit in the window properly without stretching and annoying but these artists deserve to have all their detail seen.

Art by Langley (won't give out profile - you find it out)
Full view please!
Full view please! *.* Okay so Lang and I met at the Gaia 2nd Anniversary Ball, in Nyome's thread. I had known of her art because of Shin no Kimiko's commission, as well as Bebe's commission (and many others actually) but it was the first time I had actually spoken with her and got to know her. She's really awesome! Very sophisticated and well-spoken, and we got to talking a TON about things. I mentioned I loved her art, she said she would be interested in doing a commission for me if I wanted, and we talked it out. 3nodding I asked for her to draw my OC Alexi when she had time, and she first gave me a sketch. -Sketch- Then later on, she disappeared for awhile to deal with personal issues, and then earlier today, she PMed me with the finished copy. And oh my god does it rock. heart I can't believe how much detail she can put into her work - please click for the full view if you don't believe me. Its just..amazing. *.* She was asking for 80K initially but I paid her a 20K tip. 3nodding
Note: She's really busy right now so please don't overload her with requests - not putting down her profile so only people who actually know her will PM her.
Art by Lucki
Lucki's chibi art shop
Okay I thought I put this in here but I guess not. x.x I'm sorry about the lateness of putting this in.
Lucki art. 3nodding She was offering art + 4K for a Sealed letter in the wanted forum and I took her up on the offer. It was either a chibi or a sketch. I chose the larger sketch. ^^ Her prices are like super cheap but her art is way better than the price. 3nodding Check out her shop - its open once in awhile.
Art by rurouniuno
Okay I thought I put this in here but I guess not. x.x I'm sorry about the lateness of putting this in.
Anyway, this is Ruru art. heart I ordered a commission from her that she did for me in order to help jAded in her DJs quest - the money (20K) that I gave her went to jAded's quest. Her art rocks! I think I first saw her art in Shin no Kimiko's signature. But anyway, she is a part of ART INSANITY shop, which jAdedice is a part of too. ^^
Art by Kyoupiruchi
Kyou's real life commissions page
Kyou's Art request thread in RnC (draw his OCs)
Kyou's shop at Kellion
Kyou did this for me for a marker auction that I won awhile ago. heart I requested a picture of my OC Alexi, whose description was still being worked on at the time. Kyou specializes in markers but he also does CGs and such. Right now he's a bit swamped so he's not accepting Gaia commissions but he does take real life commissions: the links to samples and prices are above the art. 3nodding Also, he wants art of his Original Characters so please check out his OC request thread in the RnC. ^^ Big thanks to him for finishing the art even though he's swamped and busy and for making such a wonderful piece of art for me. *luffs* heart
Art by Nevarinn
Nev's art shop ^^ Temp closed pending auction
Nevarinn started an art shop in the RnC asking people to pay what they wanted at first. ^^ A bunch of us saw her work and helped give her some pointers about making an art shop. Neva specializes in girly CG artwork. whee Examples and stuff can be seen at her dev art. Unfortunately, her shop is closed right now because she wants to finally start setting prices, by doing an art auction. ^^ heart She's the cutest newbie in the world. whee
Art by --jAded iCe--
jAded is currently holding an art auction. ^^
This is the second art by jAded that I've received. ^^ heart I asked her to do a headshot in pencil, with the hair flowing outwards like in another pic of hers. ^^ In her pencil style, which is what her art auction is for. Please bid and bump and help her out. ^^ She's questing for DJs and her art rocks! heart
Art by FallingAlaster heart
Alaster's deviant art.
PM commission. ^^ FallingAlaster saw my journal and PMed me to ask to draw me. 3nodding I said yes, and came up with a description and this is the result. Her prices are very low - her base prices are 3.5K but this is much too low for her work, so I tipped her. If you want to get a commission done by her, just PM her. ^^ She's on a quest for OMG and is more than willing to draw for you.
Art by symphadora heart
symph's deviant art.
symphadora's art shop
Saw Symphadora's shop when I was just browsing around RnC for awhile - she was just setting up. I loved the way her art looked so I went and got a commission. whee Decided to ask for a picture of my Gaia avatar in her "business" mode, with the suitcase on the ground open and papers inside, and the book in her hand like my avatar holds it. The prices weren't high at all - just 8K for that full body CG with background. 3nodding Gave her a tip of course (Jan sealed letter). Check out her shop. ^^
Art by e m m i heart
emmi's sheezy art.
I just want to say one thing. Emmi pwns. Oh and emmi kicks a**. heart This is a commission I got for winning her art auction at 128K - I've seen her around and have wanted her art for some time and I was totally blown away by her headshot she did for me, as well as this final picture. She captured Alexi perfectly - the expression, the eyes, the pose. She also did the headgear right. heart Which noone else has done - I'm definitely going to be using this as THE reference for my future commissions.
The following is the headshot she did as a freebie for bumping her thread. heart
If you like that one, Emmi will most likely be opening up a headshot store sometime in the future. She is going to PM me once that gets set up so stay tuned. 3nodding For now, she's not doing other commissions since she's pretty swamped with all the freebie headshots.
Thank you so much emmi! You rock. heart
Art by koma-chan
koma-chan's Art Shop.
When I was browsing requests and commissions, I noticed this shop by koma-chan, which had some slots open for commissions. I saw that pic she did for Shin and, though I'm not usually one for chibis, I became interested in purchasing a commission. heart This is the result. Koma's prices are very reasonable - 8K for a quality image of that sort is amazing. She is also very fast - I didn't think I'd get the commission that quickly. I love it and I'd recommend her to anyone interested in quality art for a good price. ^^
Art by Haraiso
Hara's DeviantART account
Hara's shop at Kellion Artists!
Hara did this for me for 2 Feb letters at a special thread. ^^ The thread, if its still open at the time you view this, is HERE. I've linked to her shop at Kellion - its usually full, but there are some times when she does special events like this. She's currently open mostly for large letters - details at her shop in Kellion. Thanks for helping me with my art cravings Hara. heart
Art by ryoOoki
Ryo's DeviantART account
Ryo's shop at Kellion Artists!
Ryo did this for me for three Feb letters when I was having art cravings. whee The thread, if its still open at the time you view this, is HERE. Anyway, she has a shop at Kellion and it says her slots are closed, but she is available for commission at the right price if you PM her. Think around 100K ish, plus or minus depending on what you want. She also does real life commissions and prefers those. Thanks for the art Ryo and for helping me with my art cravings. heart whee
Art by Grimma
Grimma's DeviantART account
Grimma does commissions of all sorts, usually by email. Perhaps PMs would work too.
Grimma and I met in an auction for a marker drawing I believe, and she mentioned that she did commissions. I PMed her and she told me to offer, and so I offered up 25K for her waist up CG. ^^ Above is the completed picture. heart Grimma does commissions by PM and I don't believe she has a shop (could be wrong) but her art is definitely worth every cent.
Art by --jAded iCe--
jAded is currently taking commissions in the following shop until she gets DJs
JAded has been questing for DJs and decided to open up about 160 slots worth 20K each in order to help her attain her goal. I got a bust up from her (CG) for 20K, and she was awesome and discounted for me, and so I'm getting another from her for 20K but in her normal style, which is pencil. (I love her pencil art actually) n_n Please go to her shop and buy a bust up to support her DJs quest.
Art by Razputin
Razputin doesn't normally do commissions - you could PM to ask though.
Raz put up a thread in the RnC selling a commission for 40K out of a whim. whee I took him up on it and had him draw a pic of my OC Alexi. Wonderful artist, and very quick. He doesn't normally do commissions but just felt like practicing on Photoshop and getting some gold in the process. Tipped 5K just for being patient with me through the process.
Art by Nyome
Nyome's Deviantart - lists real life commission prices.
Art received as a gift from the 2005 2nd Gaia Anniversary Ball, in the following thread. Click heart Nyome does not currently have a shop nor does she do Gaia commissions for Gaia gold, but she does do real life commissions. Check out her DeviantART account (link above) to see more samples and prices for her art. heart (Note: please do not bug her for Gaia gold commissions or for free art)
Art by Ibris
Ibris's art shop - Drathenium ArtShop
Art received as a commission from her art shop. Very low prices - ended up tipping her. ^^ Specializes in the soft dreamy style seen here.
Art by Zyphem
Zyphem has no art shop but I guess you could PM him and ask for a commish.
Art received as a PM request commission after seeing his art in someone's sig. Very low prices too. Ended up tipping him as well. ^^ Only does waist up or headshots due to time constraints.
Art by Aslana
Aslana usually does art auctions and has no shop that I'm aware of.
Art received as part of payment towards March Slippers in wanted forum. Was originally to be a headshot but she made it a waist up. heart (Thanks again hon)
Art by !2ice
!2ice usually does art auctions these days but he used to own a shop.
Click for !2ice's art shop.
Art received when !2ice was posting around in the Fishing QnA thread in the fishing forum. Done in return for a fishing helm (boldur helm I think) when they were worth around 20K. Beware of high image size if you want to click - he gave it to me in BMP form. (the jpg really does no justice for it though)
Art by Scooter Girl
Cyranne's art shop - Cy.Gra.Gra.Sho - closed but listed for old times sake.
Art received long ago as a commission from her shop. She is the one who inspired me to make GCG actually - she suggested in QnF that there be a more current listing of all store items with thumbnails and prices. She gave me a Christmas gift voucher for her art...maybe one day soon when I think of something, and when she has more time, I'll cash in that voucher. She's not on Gaia much anymore so you probably will not be able to commission her. She also made the banner for the GCG - the big original one.
