Out of curiosity: is there a waitlist/pinglist for when/if your commissions open up again?
Hi there! I have a waiting list for those that want to be notified when commissions open. If you or anyone interested would like to dm me with a means of contact (preferably email) I could add them to the list. Those added get notified when commissions open 1-2 days before I announce openings on my social media!
That being said I’m not quite sure when commissions might reopen. I recently got a new job and it’s going to take me a while to redetermine my availability. Also if my waiting list is long you still might not get a slot when they reopen, it depends on who gets back to me first.

Hhihshizwih would you believe that wasn’t even intentional? I was just going for another L name 😂
any updates on that eldritch knight you were making? i think his name was cerin? i am in love with your art of him and would love to know his backstory if you've got one worked out!
Oh yea! So funny story there, I ended up reworking a lot of him into my current dnd character, Lucéena. You may notice they share a lot of similarities in design. They also share a lot of background things that I tweaked so that they would fit my dm’s world a bit better. Originally Luca Cerin was a dark elf soldier that earned a respectable rank by working for a powerful mage in a traditional drow society. Essentially being the bodyguard of a mage, he learned some magic to supplement his fighting techniques. But one day he was framed for the murder of his master so he was forced to flee and the plan was for him to be on the run from his old colleagues. He had a sweet soft boy aesthetic despite his rough exterior, I loved it.
Lucéena’s story is similar in the way that she is also an eldritch knight and her mentor and father figure was murdered, saddling her with the blame. The main difference is that she is a shadar kai instead of a drow and she was taken in by a noble family of high elves, raised as one of their own. Cuz of that she also has siblings and a lingering, complicated relationship w her mother. She ended up fleeing the country and landed herself in the current setting of our campaign. Her goal is less about hiding from old relations (tho that is a thing) and has more been to find the true culprit of her foster father’s murder so that she can finally return to her family. She’s mostly kinda succeeded! She knows who did it but it’s complicated and she still doesn’t have an answer for “why”.
If you are interested in learning more about Lucéena’s journey I write story summaries on occasion and I post them with art I make inspired by the campaign. If you look up the tag “Lucéena” you should find it all! I also don’t mind answer questions tho. It’s been a while since I made a proper update.

What if we kissed after beheading your old slave master and watching his house go up in flames? Jk… unless 😳
Guess who finally finished that wip! Funnily enough those two STILL haven’t had a chance to talk and now bigger plot things are just making everything more complicated. More arts soon to come

I’m so very happy to share one of the biggest projects I’ve been working on these last few weeks! This is my contribution to a collaborative exhibition featuring the work of several graduating illustrators from my school and it couldn’t have been a better send off! It’s been a true pleasure watching so many talented artists grow and myself alongside them.

I plan to clean this up but I’m so excited about how my last dnd game went down I really wanted to share! Things got a little spicy XD I guess Lucéena has a girlfriend now? More under the cut!
I’ll definitely share more once I finish the pic but, to summarize, recently my group went on a little break. Right before we left off tho, Blue, the beloved npc and childhood friend of Echo, had been abducted by her and Echo’s old slave master and we set out to get her back and kick the guy’s butt. We planned to split up to cause a distraction while some of our more quiet party members snuck around to find Blue but we ended up converging in the back of his home with no idea where she could be.
We ended up finding Blue tied up in the gardens w their old master and a fight broke out. It was rough, easily the most insane battle we’ve had this campaign. Echo went unconscious at the end and earlier Lucéena ended up dying before being revivified by our cleric. In the end we all made it out alive w some new scars (and withered hands, don’t know what’s up w that yet).
After the fight and making sure Blue was ok, Echo approached Lucéena for help cutting off her old master’s head, and while the rest took a break, the two went off to find a spike to stick it on (peak romantic activity I know lol).
They ended up talking about the fight and how Echo was feeling after it and standing there, under the spiked head of Echo’s master and his house in flame behind them, they ended up kissing. They’ve been having a lot of heart to heart convos after crazy terrible things happen but Lucéena still didn’t really expect it. She’s had a crush on Echo for a long time but I don’t think she thought her feelings might be reciprocated. All she’s ever wanted was to look after Echo and the other members of the party. If nothing ever happened she’d still have been happy knowing that she did her best to keep Echo safe, it’s the simplest way Lucéena can express her affections. But now they could be more, which is something Lucéena wasn’t fully prepared for.
They ended up spending the night together after that but they haven’t had the chance to talk about it or what that means they are. This is uncharted waters for Lucéena so I look forward to seeing how this goes!
