View Full Version : My first commission

So far everything I've drawn has been fooling around. I recently got a 'commission' from someone. She asked if I could draw an Iris so I drew one. I used a reference but that's all.

Well, it's not a money making type commission, it was just a request.

Well, it's not a money making type commission, it was just a request.

No matter about cash on the barrel head. I don't think anybody ever asked me to give them anything I did all through school, even my mom. And in school I had to pay the instructors to ask me to do work, homework to be sure, but it was the only place anyone wanted me to do anything at all until I started hammering on doors with portfolio in hand, doing little jobs. It wasn't nearly so gratifying as having someone ask for you to do a work of art for them because they expect it to be beautiful, which yours decidedly is!

Just look at those petals! Fantastic! Rich color. Delicate detail. Good form. Really nice that. You really delivered and have a big win in the art column, chum. Something to be proud of.

Go George Go!!!!!!!!!

I just used the term because it made me feel like somebody. Everything else has been a doodle, this was actually serious project for a real person. For that reason I put more attention to it.

Nice delicate feel about the image, that's important for a flower.

Wow ! Great painting. I am not a fan of flowers painting myself but this one really stunning. Caught my eyes right away once I click on this post. The flowers details, the color, the contrast just won't let my eyes get off this painting. Especially how well you painted the texture of the petal. Congratulation ! I think you are going to be busy in the future, as more commission request are on the way :) Echo Dakey, go ! go ! go ! :)
