Hey guys! I’m always open for commissioning!

Here’s some info regarding options and pricing:

PEN & INK SKETCHES

  • $10.00 for a pen and ink sketch of anything. In return you get a high resolution (300 dpi) cleaned up scan of the image. It’s $5.00 each for additional characters. If you are interested in owning the original, then an additional $5.00 is needed to ship the item to you.
  • Pen and ink sketches are available to be colored digitally, so if this something you would like done it would be an additional $10-$15 depending on how many characters there are in the image. This is something we would work out, depending on what’s being commissioned.

DIGITAL PORTRAITS

  • $30.00 for digital portraits, of anything and anyone! This is for one figure, with no background. Each additional figure is $15.00. There is no fee for a color/gradient background. In return for this purchase you will receive a high resolution (300 dpi) PNG file with a transparent background, as well as a copy with a colored background.
  • If you’re interested in a full figure, or a portrait with a background included contact me and we’ll discuss pricing.

FULL COMPOSITION IMAGES

  • Individual pricing may vary for this option, depending on what’s being commissioned. Pricing will range between $75 and $150. This is where paying a little more might save you money; because this is a commission to received a poster sized image (27 x 41 inches) of an entire composition, scene, etc. - with multiple characters and background.

No you don’t understand how frustrated I am that we always depicted the Apostles as old men, especially when it comes to during-Jesus-alive stuff.

They were probably late teens to early 20s, given the time and the description and some Biblical passages.

They were not ancient old men with long ass beards and wrinkles at the Last Supper.

They were young adult rebels with a cause.

And none of them were WHITE.

Michael Brown’s dad before the burial. 
The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture

I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans. 
We can never just be.

An attempt to reconstruct the apperance of a high-status mycenaean woman.

It’s possible that mycenaean women of high social status, noblewomen and priestesses, painted their faces for ceremonial occasions, using white lead. Such make-up would give their face mask-like appearance, letting temporarily remove the individual behind said mask and play a certain role instead.

Does anyone know the artist who did these? I can’t find info anywhere. They’re absolutely gorgeous. I’m wondering if it’s the same work that will be on the Tarot deck?

Painted Eyebrow Trends in Tang Dynasty

This is a chart showing different eyebrow trends in the Tang Dynasty. It’s based on a chart in Chinese Clothing by Hua Mei and Gao Chunming (2004), on pg 37. I wanted to create a chart that had the eyebrows on faces.

Interesting notes

"Women of the Tang Dynasty paid particular attention to facial appearance, and the application of powder or even rouge was common practice. Some women’s foreheads were painted dark yellow and the dai (a kind of dark blue pigment) was used to paint their eyebrows into different shapes that were called dai mei(painted eyebrows) in general. There were literally a dozen ways to pait the eyebrows and between the brows there was a colourful decoration called hua dian, which was made of specks of gold, silver and emerald feather.” (5000 Years of Chinese Costume, 77)

"…during the years of Yuanho in the reign of Xuanzong the system of costumes changed, and women no longer applied red powder to their faces; instead, they used only black ointment for their lips and made their eyebrows like like the Chinese character ‘’." (5000 Years of Chinese Costume, 77)

The black lipstick style “was called the ‘weeping makeup’ or ‘tears makeup’.” (Chinese Clothing by Hua Mei, 37)
