Hi!
I've decided to reduce price for my commissions for next few days because there is a huge book convention starting soon and I need to save some money to feed my hunger for reading. 

For now I plan to hunt for books by Terry Pratchett and Robert Jordan.
Do you have any good fantasy/sci-fi book to recommend?

About commissions - I forgot to mention that I prefer to do creature portraits,
something like:

May I claim a slot?  Do you want payment before or after?  It will be of a dragon adopt I've recently purchased on DA (the one in my avatar).

Robert Jordan wrote the Wheel of Time didn't he?
And as for book recommendations: The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (it's long, but the writing style, characters, world and plot are out of this world!). Blood Song, Smiler's Fair, A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir By Lady Trent and the Copper Promise are all good books too!
Do you have any good book recommendations?

I'm also interested in a commission (I don't know how to pay things by paypal though but I assume it's pretty simple?).
Is it digital commissions only, and what do you need for the commission? Like a generalised description, a reference or anything?

Yes he did, oh I haven't read any of those books, I'll add them to my list of things I need to look out for. I've just finished the first book of the series "Malazan book of the fallen" by Steven Erikson and it was really good, also I recommend books by Joe Abercrombie and by Patrick Rothfuss(Wise mans fear and Name of the wind). With these you can't miss.

And now about commission. Paypal is simple, you just need to find send payment option and enter my address (I'll send it by a note). If you prefer traditional I could do that for same price too.
I need some picture of the creature I'm drawing, it doesn't need to be good, just to get general idea of the design and colors.

Brandon Sanderson, who wrote Way of Kings also finished the Wheel of Time series I think...? Can't really remember P:
Oh! I've got the first Malazan book on my shelf! I'll definitely read that next then! And I've not read anything by Abercrombie or Rothfuss so I'll look out for them!
Also, Winter Warriors by David Gemmell is a good read too ^^

Awesome! I'll send you a picture in a note when I can get to my scanner! *runs around excitedly*

Out of curiosity, just a couple questions:
  1. How long are you offering these reduced-price commissions for?
  2. Do you take points? I'm assuming not, but it doesn't hurt to ask. :)
  3. I remember you talking about doing a book of 100 dragons earlier this year. Would any of these commissions end up in there?
  4. What kind of book suggestions are you looking for?

I'll do 5 commissions (there is one slot still open), I could take points for normal commission, but not for this reduced price. 
Ah, you remember the book ^^ Every dragon I draw can end up in that book if I like him enough.

And for book recommendations... some quality fantasy, the most recent one I've read was Gardens of the moon by Steven Erikson and it was awesome :3

Oh, okay... In that case, when's the next time you will be open for point commissions?

I would have recommended Terry Pratchett, but you already mentioned him. Other than that, most of my favorite fantasy authors write dragon books. E. E. Knight (Age of Fire series), Elizabeth Kerner (Song in the Silence and that trilogy), James Maxey (Bitterwood trilogy), Naomi Novik (Temeraire series), Graham Edwards (Dragoncharm) are all worth looking into. :meow:

I would be interested. Do you have any examples of what the 12$ digital portrait would look like? :)
