MOVING TO UK + COMMISSION INFOSo this is the big deal...MOVING TO UK + COMMISSION INFO by JuliaMadrigal
University is over, at last, I’ve got no job, my family is wreked, I’ve got little to no money and my country situation right now it’s fucked up. So yeah, it’s going to be a hard new beginning, like, moving to a different country with no job, no money no nothing
Though this entire journey is going to be full of hard, unexpected events, challenges and stuff I’m going to deal with alone, this picture is way much better than the situation that I’m on right now.
I must admit that I’m terrified, but I’m and adventurer!
It’s time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap.
So if you care to find me…
Look through the EASTERN sky
Anyway, I'm still triying to make a living out of this and I need an extra income more than ever.
As always I'm offering again my drawing skills at good prices!
For personal use images, no commercial use.
COMMISSIONSGuys! Hey everyone!COMMISSIONS by apfelgriebs
(At least for me! ^^)
I have decided to open commissions for various reasons. The first one is obvious: I am a student, I need money. The second is: I would like to expand my comfort zone, paint some things I would probably not paint without being asked to do. The last one: Practice. It's as easy as that. My pricing is probably not exactly cheap but please also keep in mind how much time I will spend on each painting.
If you consider commissioning me, please read through the following before you ask any questions, I am sure most of them will be answered below. Thank you!

"Steam on and progress!"
My love for SF started in the age of 6 while reading most of Jules Vernes works. "Discovering" Steampunk in 2010, it was instantly a perfect match! SciFi in the victorian style of Jule Verne. What could be better?|
My first projects in this area after years of costume and prop building in "another galaxy", were two outfits with equipment for the Roleplay Convention in Cologne, Germany in May 2011 (biggest event of its kind in Germany). From there on I was infested with the Steampunk virus, continuing to refine the outfits and developing new stuff.
My approach on Steampunk design is quite simple: victorian aestetics combined with functionality.
There are many out there defining steampunk by simply bashing brass tubing together. The more the better.
I have a differend opinion:
1. if you take a look at the victorian age, you will soon realize that one essence of it was, that even machines and purely functional equipment should still be look and made like a unique and elegant piece of art.
2. every piece on every gadget and contraption I conceive should still look like it is there for a reason and has a plausible function instead of "just been put there".
To use a phrase of Walt Disney they must have at least a feel of" the plausible implausible".
That's my aim, I try to follow.
