Just to write a little journal to let people know that I'll be writing a revised commission information and aim to upload that in early October once I've got some current works finished.

I'll be working to an hourly rate of $25 (USD) and will have some new examples up soon, will open for some small things such as icons (which will be flat rate), also portraits and full paintings as well - so pretty much like my latest uploads! :)

I'll be opening for a certain amount of hours regularly, but I'm always open for quotes so if you'd like to inquire how much a certain type of commission/your idea would be feel free to email me at johiscomms(at) ! (I prefer email over notes since it's easier to manage and keep track of)

If you're interested keep an eye out for the announcement journal!

Thanks for reading ♥

First of all I'd like to say that your gallery is simply wonderful! And I find it very fascinating how you can display so human-like emotions on animals (especially since your style is so realistic!). The colors are amazing, too. But what I really got impressed by was the level of detail in your drawings. I am not even nearly patient enough to draw like you do (+my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it). 

But... if you have time... can you please tell me about how you learned to draw? Like, uhm... why and when you started drawing. I dunno. This is probably a pretty boring and common question, but I just wanna know ^^

:wave: Hello, I happened across your beautiful and outstanding gallery and would like to extend an offer of membership to my group

:iconworld-of-wildlife: World-of-Wildlife

Please accept my apologies for placing this request on your profile but it seems I've reached my formal group invitation limit.

Kind Regards-

I've noticed on your YouTube that you use some royalty free music. I was wondering where the best sites to get that would be. I'm working on an animation and really don't want to have to deal with copyright, even though I won't be making profit off of the final product. Thank you!
Also, your work is incredibly stunning!
