artastrophe's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
freelance illustrator... I mostly do sketches/concept drawings/storyboards for retail... if I'm not working, I'm writing, and if I'm not writing, I'm painting. Or, occasionally, sleeping. A love for fantasy and RPGs has led me to almost exclusively painting character art/portraits for fun *cough* "practice." :roll:

I really appreciate all the support, but I don't know when I will open for commissions again, and I just don't have the time to do requests, either... sorry, but thank you for your understanding! ^^
If I don't send you a reply, it's because I've run out of ways to say this politely and/or I'm just a horrible jerk for which any social interaction costs a great deal of thought/effort~!!

Love your work!  Stumbled upon your artwork after hitting up Google for a portrait for my Red Wizard's character sheet.  Amazing work! You are extremely talented.  :D

Heya, just wanted to hear if you are still alive and kickin', you haven't been in my notifications in a while ;)
Any thoughts on Siege of Dragonspear yet?

aw thanks for checking in! :hug: I've been alive but not kicking so much lately, though I think things are straightening out to the point I should be able to post some paintings soon! ;)

(I've been working on writing more than art lately; just started posting my BG2 fic!! :O)

and I couldn't tell too much from the trailer, so I don't really know what to think! it's cool that there is more BG stuff and that the EE's have renewed an interest in BG so I am quite happy for that, though Idk that this is the best team to be doing it, but hey, at least someone is. xD what are your thoughts?? ^^

Alright, good to see you are still around xD
I watched the announcement lifestream for Dragonspear, that was awesome!

So far it's looking really promising, they even got a bunch of the original voice actors to reprise their roles and stuff.
I am super pumped, but then again, they would have to really screw this up in order to disappoint me xD
The best part though is, that the contract with Atari is over, which means that they now have a lot more creative freedom than before (which was notably holding them back before).
So yeah, good vibes from my side!

Haha, also, some folks over at the forums already voiced that they are still going to use Paint BG, so I guess you gonna have to do the portraits for the new characters soon ;)
Speaking of portraits, it also seems that a lot of the old companions are getting new portraits in general, but there are only tiny thumbnails of them available so far (you can see them in the screenshots and trailer on the homepage, if you are interested). So I guess there will be new reference material soon.

aw yeah! probably time for a PaintBG update, anyway. x) and ooooh new portraits?? that is really interesting, too. okay, so maybe your excitement is contagious; you've got me interested!! ;D (and hey, thank you for thinking of me with the art job--I don't actually meet enough of the qualifications, but I really appreciated it. :hug:)

Holy Monkey sauce.  NEW BG STUFF!? AEEEI! Here's to hoping for more companion dialog...!

I see Edwin hung around to go on haphazard adventures with you before disappearing Pre BG2 XD

Now the only question is, did Xzar.....!

OH GOD NOW I NEED THIS SO I CAN WRITE IT INTO MY OWN FANFICTION BLARG *flops* Good thing I'm writing so slow/detailed, eh!? XD

Just wanted to add I love the work you've done. I played through Baldurs Gate 2 and Throne of Bhaal last summer and your portraits immensely improved the experience imo. I love the art design and think they really capture the feel of the characters. Youre a true artist! I'm back now picking through to find the right portrait for my Pillars of Eternity character haha.
