Hi people

As I mentioned before, I started a new blog with a bunch of artists / friends, it has a decent amount of posts now so I thought I'd make it official.

You can check it out at bananaorange.com

My piece Deadland Zombies 2 got picked to be a Daily Deviation, so yay.

I had a lot of fun working on this piece for Pinnacle Entertainment, well, Zombie Cowboys, who wouldn't like that.

Thanks to  Natalia-Luz who suggested the piece and DieZori who featured it =P


:bulletorange: Shameless self-promotion :bulletorange:

Well since I'm getting a lot of visits today, I thought I'd mention that I have a blog where I upload most of my work and I'll start uploading tutorials for those who're interested, things that I really don't post here because I don't feel like creating an image with height of a million pixels.

felipegaona.blogspot.com I'll add a banner to make it look prettier someday.

www.felipegaona.com And this is my website, I'm not really original with names.

:bulletorange: Collective of artists :bulletorange:

www.bananaorange.com Is a collective of artists friends that we started, if you're interested in their work too you might want to take a look.

:bulletorange: Commissions :bulletorange:

I've been getting a few notes about commissions, if you're interested, I'm always open to do some work, just drop me a note and let's see what you have in mind.


This is the most I've written in deviantART by far, until the next time and thanks for dropping by!

Finally got a job, working at Devir, wohooOo, surrounded by mtg cards.

That means I have less time to work on commissions, but I'm still doing them though.

Hey

Just made a new website for my illustration purposes.

You can check it out at:

Still looking for commissioners, 30 USD per character people!

So I'm a bit short of money these days, and I decided to offer cheaper commissions, I'll lower the price for a character illustrations to $30 USD, which is half of what I usually charge (you can check my other journals).

The idea is something like this:

fav.me/d2x1vra

or this:

fav.me/d2wj5vt

But in color, an probably with a simpler bg.

I'll open 8 slots which I think I can do in little time, and I'll see how it goes from there.

If you're interested just send me a note!.

Between tonal studies and underpaintings I've been invaded with the classical way of painting. I'll have to learn more about it, and there's no better way of learning than teaching.
