Be able to draw people, more specifically a dwarf, provide this BEFORE the 25th, and work with either 25$, or with me and a slightly delayed second payment.
I have the general idea in a horrendous messy sketch, but you'll be given artistic freedom for this, to interpret the information in your own way.
It's going to be a christmas/birthday gift for my husband's brother, he'll most likely use it [the art] everywhere. This is probably one of the only gifts he'll be getting. (he's 30 this year, and deathly worried about it, he's suffered a lot and is a rather sad guy, so I want this to be as nice as my tiny budget may allow)
His namesake online for years has been "blazebeard" and he loves dwarves. The idea I'd like would be a flatcolor, line art, or sketch image of the following:
Dwarf leaning back, blacksmith apron on, his hair is dark brown, maybe a tiny smidge of grey in the beard (not much). His beard should slightly be on fire (how will be up to you, clever artist friend). He's got a sketch pad in his lap and seems to be sketching some kind of sculpture or metalwork idea. He's got a half smile and a sort of dreamy look in his eye as he smokes on his pipe.
Lee's [the gentleman this is for]a super eclectic guy, an artist, his favorite medium is metal but he's never learned much past the basics, he adores music and played a few instruments, as well as an old samurai/old movie buff. ALso adores comics via marvel and DC, as well as general super hero stuff. Dunno if that helps you in any way, but the sketch is just a single, full body image of a dwarf, a lot of this will be up to you to interpret as needed.
I currently have 25$ to my name on paypal, I can and am willing to acquire some more money for a nice commission if you're willing to wait a week or so for the second payment. If you have any qualms or curiosities, you can note I have been completing commissions earnestly for 7 years. Starting with points (here on this account) and eventually over on FA as a full time artist. I have never had any discredits to my name or issues, I've always delivered payments, refunds or art in a more or less timely manner. So there's that. If that's not acceptable to you, but 25$ is too cheap, then It may be best not to reply!
If you have interest or know someone who might, please let me know!
