Tokala by Ahkward Tokala by Ahkward
Pencil Commission 1/2 for EncounterEthereal and XanderDragunov. It was SO NICE to be working in pencil again, though I forgot how hard it was to work so small! This was 5x7 and normally I work no smaller than 9x12. XD

I did go over the face and tried to reshape it as best I could. Such interesting markings too! I drew her around some plants and nature since that seems to be a theme for her. :'D Thanks so much for your order! I'll have the other half (Callder) out sometime later today.

There's my beautiful girl <3  Thank you so much for the work you put into these two pieces.  I'd been excited to see them turn out in your style :)  I think the shading details for Tokala, here, are even better than for Callder.  I love what you've done with it :)

With Encounter down with her parents, let me know how to get our address to you for the originals if she hasn't already.

On that note ... What would be the best way to get the scanned copy of these? xD

I have the scans on my computer, I could note those to you if you want them, and you could note/private message me the address to ship them to. I work 14 hours for each of the next 4 days (fri-monday / 9am-4am), so I won't be able to mail them until Tuesday. I always ship insured and priority mail just in case. :la:

I had a great amount of fun working with these two. The colors on them are subtle and it was nice to get lost in those beautiful markings on both of them. :'D I'm so glad you like them, and I'm sorry they took far longer than I anticipated. Anything else I can do for you?

I hear ya about the long work days.  Making some money is always nice though xD  I'll look forward to them when you're able to ship 'em out, no worries :)

Really glad you enjoyed the work ... that's always an important thing in the art world, I think.  You captured them pretty well, especially their markings.  Thank you for taking the time on them that you did.  Still wasn't the longest I've ever had to wait for a commission piece, though I can get impatient once in a while xD  Truthfully, I'd forgotten about them up until ... a month or two ago?  I forgot to add them to my list of commissions I was waiting for, the wife had it covered though.

I think that was everything I had on my mind, I'll send you a note in a second!

Thank you! Many of the images I saw of her were in nature, so I figured it'd be something she'd enjoy. :'D

After I finish Callder, I'm done with him and working on his background right now. So sometime today or tomorrow would be good.
