So I might be going to an older name I used to be under, http://ickybones.tumblr.com/ there’s a banner as a place holder (you might get a kick out of it).
I’m not sure if I’m keeping this alias or not but it’s just a heads up for the ones that want to follow me see some new artwork.
I’m just sorry I keep hiding away during the summer and completely dying out during that time and I hope that I still have some interest in some people still. It’s been a little tough trying to get more artwork out there with a full-time job but I’m trying!
If you rather not follow me that’s fine as well. I will be closing this account. I have my reasons for making a fresh new account and if you’re wondering why I’m changing to a new account instead of a new name let’s just say I can’t shake somethings off just by changing my name.
Anyways see you soon once again and I’ll try to track down most of the artist I used to follow and just add them back to my list.

I AM OPENING COMMISSIONS
I’ve been meaning to open commissions for a while now, and money for school has been a little tight lately. I pretty much need to somehow raise $1200 dollars by October to pay school bills and so I can get to a science research conference. I most likely won’t raise that money just from here, but every little bit helps, ya? And hey you can help me get to some science thing to present my silly research with other university research students. Doesn’t that sound cool? It sounds cool to me.
Line art - $15 +$5 for each extra character
Flat colors - $20
Basic shading -$25
Painted - $40-60 depending on complexity
These prices are kind of loose and still depend on the complexity of what thing you’re asking for. I’m totally cool with drawing weird monsters or outfits but sometimes too much is too much. And likewise I may aim cheaper if you just want me to draw your animal crossing character or something.
Nudity is okay. No porn please.
You can contact me at drawingstupidmonsters.tumblr.com or at my email at akoszis (at) yahoo.com. We can figure out paypal stuff when we’ve decided what I am gonna draw. Don’t forget to send me references.
If this whole thing goes well then I will be sure to start adding other stuff onto the commissions menu in the future. I might one day have the confidence to add cheap sketches or 3d modeling onto there. One day!
AND REMEMBER TO HELP A GUY OUT AND REBLOG NOW AND THEN, EVEN IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO THROW AT ME. THANKZ.
Pay me to do art, plz
Turns out private posts don’t go to the top of the dash when you turn them public so now I gotta do a reblog balancing act WOOPS.
Help my friend out pleas! They are pretty talented and you will definitely get your money’s worth when you request for a commission! I am guaranteeing satisfaction of immense proportions.

So I might actually delete my tumblr but just get a fresh start under the same name though. Its a personal thing and I just find it the only way to “cleanse”. So just look for the same name if you give a damn I don’t really care for followers anymore. This doesn’t mean I don’t care about the artists and genuine people that actually like my work. I just want to make it clear I don’t do mention this for the popularity. Honestly when I first started a tumblr it was because of that. Attention and praise but I realize that’s stupid. I also loath the tumblr community, yes I actually dislike tumblr. I just have one to see if I can find other artists and maybe do some commissions, etc. I know, if I start over again it might be even harder to do that but guess what? I have enough confidence in my work. Doesn’t matter if I start a new or not. Actually who knows, I might just get rid of tumblr all together. I have a blogger and flickr already. Fuck I don’t really know, I need to think more. See you later guys.

Been doing a completely new character design for the usually main character I draw. The scarf isn’t a part, it was just for fun. Still deciding to put on horns or just leave them with pointy ears. I like both but it might clutter up the head. Anyways this is just a little sketch since I’m still busy with work and trying to get my “update” finished up. Just hold on to your seat kiddies!

Drew these yesterday, had a lot of fun making the basic shapes before getting down to the details. I used photos from the internet, I really liked the bearded pig Frank showed me. The bearded pig is more stylized then the rest of the animals I drew. Oh and one random maggot.
Going to post some more stuff later.

I’ve been out working and I have two jobs so having the time to work on drawings has become very minimal so here’s a sketch to make up for not posting in a while. Could of done something more interesting with the scales but I was just being lazy. I feel that face is a little to long. Oh well.
Drawing dragons and trees is what keeps me mindless and happy. Draw one yourself! DRAW DAMN IT.

So I’m redesigning of that one character I always draw. There’s changes in the teeth, making them a little more pointed and I think one might be chipped. Their skin tone is going to be be something other then flesh. Hair is less made up, their journey doesn’t start with “And they stepped out of a magical hair salon where their hair was perfect and with filled great volume”. Playing around with eyebrows and the pupils, wasn’t working out to well with the old ones. Still figuring out that ear, I really like big ears but putting to much detail in the ear would be distracting so I need to find the balance. Also adding more meat to this character in the neck and rest of the body. Got sick of that pointy nose that had no character to it what so ever.
Any opinions on this? It’s a rough sketch so there are obviously mistakes but I’d still like to read what you guys think.

I inked this about last week and messed with the colors ever since.
Been going through some character design change and especially trying to tackle on color more. I haven’t found anything I really like but playing around was really fun. I’m no good in coloring. Still working on the design of this character as well.
So tell me what you like and if there’s any advice you can give me it would be greatly appreciated.

Here are some trees I doodled up and a few of them are from searching “strange trees” on the internet. Remember, trees don’t need to all be the same. There are a lot of different shapes and colors in trees. It’s really fun to play around with.

Just a drawing with some at 2am in the morning today. I’m trying to do more traditional from now on. All I used was Higgins Black India ink and a 3/0 brush.
I would really encourage others to try more traditional medium. It’s very nice and relaxing.
