Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
In the battle of life it is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of a deed could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold timid souls who have tasted neither victory nor defeat.

-Theodore Roosevelt

Commissions: Open

I've put this off way longer than I intended, but I am once again open for business. Be sure to read everything before contacting me, and feel free to ask about anything I may not have covered.

What I offer.

Traditional illustrations of characters and/or locations from (but not necessarily limited to) My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

  • Simple environment -$10.00
  • Detailed environment -$15.00                                  

Payment options.

I only accept PayPal. Payments can either be made in one upfront payment, or in three separate installments (does not apply to sketches or line drawings), in which the first covers the initial concept sketch, the second covers the line work, and the third covers the final pencil or watercolor rendering. The method of payment will be left to your discretion.

Shipping and Handling.

If you want your picture mailed to you (which is fairly safe to assume) you'll have to pay for shipping. Pricing will vary depending on where you live. U.S. shipping shouldn't run too high over $7.00, but expect international shipping to be closer to $20.00 or higher.


With my artwork being an expression and representation of myself, I hold it to a high standard. I personally guarantee quality, will always value good composition over a surplus of detail, and will strive for originality. I don't rush my process just to get the work done quickly, and I will do my level best to ensure that you are satisfied with the finished product. I do try to stay fairly open-minded, but there are certain lines I will not cross. Anything cruel, abusive, racist, or overly sexual in nature, will be refused. There are also a few things I won't draw simply because I do not want to. These include: Shipping, human/pony interaction, and comics (they just take too long).

Ordering a Commission.

To order a commission send me a note titled "Commission" with the following information:
  • Type of Commission: (sketch, line drawing, painting, etc..)
  • A brief but detailed description of your order.
  • Any references you think might help (optional).       
  • Your e-mail address.            
Once I approve your order your icon will be placed in the appropriate slot.
