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:

Open for doing portraits! ;) 40 USD (+PayPal tax :P)… on hold while I catch up

You are absolutely free to use any of my images as avatars online, like for discussion boards and things like that (though I respectfully would prefer to reserve my self-portraits --and Drexl xD -- for my own online personas), or as part of non-profit mods for games (please notify me for those!). Please credit me where the option is available. ^^

PLEASE DO NOT ALTER AND REPRODUCE MY IMAGES. I know people have fun altering the original BG artwork into new combinations, but keep in mind those artists were paid for their work and it belongs to the game, and mine was all a labor of love and belongs to me... please respect that I do not want to see my efforts manipulated and edited. Of course you are free to do so for your own personal use, but please do not publicly post them.

As mentioned above, my artwork is free for the people who want to use it in free scenarios, but anything for-profit or part of an official production needs to be individually approved with a fair monetary compensation subject to the scope of the project/projected sales/etc.


Portrait Commissions
[4,000 points on DA or 40USD through Paypal] Mostly on here just so I can have a showcasing box, woo! xD (had to inflate price to account for DA's 20% fee. ;P)

Excellent work, making much more shine for the already great game.
But with BGEE it still have some portraits (i mean Caelar Argent, Hephernaan, Hooded Man and Wilson the Bear), what broke the solidarity of style. And I think that quesion interests many people. Do you have plans back to this project? Have we chance to see that characters in your unique and wonderful vision?
