Commission information:

Referential prices:

COMMISSION: DRAWINGS, Linearts and Graphite Greys

15 USD: "Chibi", distorted character LINEART.
20 USD: simple Character bust/face, no background.
25 to 30 USD: more complex works focused around a single main character, in black and white or graphite greys. (there may be secondary characters, and backgrounds... again, price depends of complexity.
30 to 40+ USD Referential price for a more complex scene, with more than one character interacting, more complex backgrounds, etc etc. Price it's only referential, as depends of complexity.

(To more complex commissions -depending of themes, characters, difficulty, number of characters, poses, perspective, complex or tedious armor, blah, etc, designs, more complex backgrounds, archicectural commissions and landscapes, etc- the price will be determined for complexity)

- In principle, commissions are in black and white, hand-draw, as I'm not allways avaible for colouring or digital colouring .
Therefore: Ask for avaibility! And In the case that the commissioner wants a coloured drawing, I consider this a second commission, paid in an independent way. The Price will depend on the complexity!

I must add, I'm not much of a colourist at hearth!


:bulletred: All commissions are paid via Paypal. Normally I prefeer to be paid once I have done the commission or a WIP of it. (I don't like being paid beforehand)

:bulletred: My prefereed contact method it's with notes in deviantArt.

:bulletred: I don't draw things banned from dA, things I'm not comfortable drawing, comics and fan art in general (with some exceptions from work of people I know in internet, or anime/cartoons I like in my own enough to draw as well. XD)

:bulletblue: I will/may upload the commission in my deviantArt Gallery, and the commissioner can request a high resolution copy by e-mail.

:bulletblue: I reserve myself the right to accept or not a commission. This could be due theme, being busy in "real life" outside of the internet, artblock, lack of inspiration, etc... I don't know.

:bulletblue: I reserve the right to post the commissioned artwork it in my dA page, pixiv, tumblr or other internet sites operated by me with non-profit goals. As well, I reserve the right to show the illustrations in exhibitions and my portafolio, but won't reproduce the commission for profit.

Doubts or interested, send me a note!

What I prefeer to do:

- Original Characters (Fantasy scenarios for the best, then Sci-fi ones a bit less XD)

- themes I draw in my gallery as well XD


If you want to commission you, BE WARNED! I'm a hobbyst, not a professional! I draw for fun, and from inspiration.

While normally I try to follow an order between the people that commissioned me in certain order, true to be told I don't work with a schedule, but from inspiration.

I'm quite sorry then for my randomly way of doing commissions.

Item 6000 by Shabazik

You must be logged in to donate.

I was wondering... of the themes I draw in my gallery: why you came to see or watch my gallery?

Hello, my dear deviantArtists!

Enjoying the farmlands in every aspect, except my current internet connectivity -which is terrible, limited and have a bad signal, to put salt in the injury-, reason of the decreased, sporadic activity -yet I continue to draw, and when I can, at least to read the comments, and I'm always grateful for them!

Because of the internet conectivity problems, I had to extend -and extend again- the date of Item 6000 and the Aiers Art Jam to the 5th January 2018 -and really I'm only hoping Internet will be working for long enough to post this journal!


To celebrate my 6,000 deviations in deviantArt, I made a point-raising event -like I did in the past- of a mock-up auction of a character: in this case, the Item 6000 was Bog the Barbarian:
Item 6000 by Shabazik
In this occasion, I enjoyed the support of many deviants, such as larqven, TheReptilianGeneral, Naranekiel, kanyiko, Empress-Of-Ravens, C05M0NAUT, sordcooper2, OnHolyServiceBound, IxisNyx and :devMoiflb:.

The happy new owner of Item 6000 is :iconnaranekiel:, while TheReptilianGeneral got the Half Orc, Pumne the Ozcura the Half Ozcuro, Scratch the Werewolf the Half Human, Empress-Of-Ravens Shazeer'ah's the Half Drow, Mina the Half Troll, Anyiko White Fang the Half Werewolf, :devMoiflb: the Half Giant, Dolores the Half Demon and larqven the mighty Half-Vanolosé Orc Bogman!

-Most of the characters buying Half-something Bogs did it using poor kanyiko's points!- 

I'm afraid thought that neither the Half Elf, the Half Dwarf or Half Kanov were sold. Poor, poor Bogs.

Many thanks to all the ones who participated!



This time I wasn't able to do a contest -as I had done yearly the past years-, and instead was hold an Art Jam: with great results! So many great pics and inspiration from people who "heard the call" and produced artwork for the fantasy Age of Aiers, Modern Aiers or the Science Fiction setting of the Nebulosa of Ots!

I want to thank all and everybody of you who participated: I loved seeing your drawings, reading your stories, and they served as great inspiration -which I hope to try to use, inspired by YOU! 

(I know some of the drawings listed below WEREN'T done for the Aiers Art Jam, but as they were done DURING it I wanted to showcase them anyway!)

28 Artists produced 42 pieces for the Aiers Art Jam, so I would call it a great success, and wanted to thank you everybody of you for it!

Many thanks!

Now, the Entries!

Bunny Shik -  Aiers Art Jam by Rosvo
While in the Nebula of Ots, the Best Known Bunny Girls come from planet Bunnya, they are by far exclusive of them -with corporations such as S.Cooper II, Azimuth Pharmaceuticals and The Bunny Company as well being in this victory war wagon as well-. Rosvo's Bunny Shiks are then the natural next step then in this Clone Bunny Girl Arms race!

Rats of Skallgard by Walt-Marsters

Walterio El Maestro, creator of the Gate Kingdom of Roccasone -and the one as well guilty for the fall of this proud realm, at the hands of Pumori White Fang-, brought to us a scene after the fall of Roccasone, as it had become Skallgard, the Garden of Skulls, the demonic realm of Queen Laisha Kolchas: there, the children of the former human masters had become lowly slaves known as Rats, in charge of cleaning the garbage and sewers of the demon-occupied city.

 Apwr04, contributor to the Minions, Mooks and Henchwomen contest of the past made a return, bringing to us this time a bowozcura hunter in the thick forests of the Hieyokscream Bay

Spacesuit Shik by Damatee
When holding this Art Jam, I mostly thought I would only be seeing artwork from my dear old friends of always, who had normally contributed to Aiers and the Nebula of Ots: one of the surprises for this Art Jam will be this Spacesuit Shik done by the talented Damatee: Well armed, this shik seems to be ready to take over the whole Ots!

Flying Shik by ToniBabelony

Toni El Babelony, author of Kythera -and once a contributor to Aiers, when his characters Jilly and Karen shortly protagonist To the Power of Two in the Hazy Moon- had for this opportunity Jilly to face -after all these years- once more a Shik... Which doesn't seems to be going well for her!


Mature Content

The Shifty Punk, the writing half of the great dupla of RecklessCharge continued wit the stories of the Galaw High Orc Pirate, Slaver and in general a bad person Argora, which her sordid business brought this time to the shores of the Amazon Lands, in the Hieyokscream Bay.

Shikita banaFra by bunny75 Azimurf by bunny75 Bouncy Bouncer by bunny75
The Great Bunny of the North, ruler of the resort planet of Bunnya -an all-time favourite vacation spot for the Devart Sector in the Nebula of Ots-, and as well the broken master of the Uncommon maids Mina, Bangela and Helga, brings us the colour coded Bunnyan Maid Service, tasked to keep tidy and clean the Touristic complexes of Bunnya, known as the Shikita Banafras. 

As well, a rather internal joke, when an aFra clone broke her anti-curse conditioning and used every third word an insult, he said she had become an "aFra Smurf".

Finally, he brought to us all the finesse of a Vanolosé Orc Bouncer Lady!


Mature Content

Nicholas of Achast, Dungeon Master of Achastia in Aiers -and the figure inspiring the dangerous slaver guild of the Sons of Achast in Ots- brought to us a story from his domains in Polforia, in the region of Serak, where Achastia is located: Achastia, that originated from the human twin cities of Acha and Stian in the valley of the river Chast -one of the tributaries to the great Polf River.

These two cities, once rivals and later allies, developed such relation in a distinctive way that become a valued Achastian tradition... read more, to find it out!

Pumne the Warlord by Billie-Bonce

The Dark Lord of the Tower of Billiboncea in the Swamp of the Ghosts, always interested and watchful of his subjects, even when he is forced by the Dark Legion to send them to war -in what would be the Catastrophic Campaign of Sargos at the 2440 a.a.H-, gave us a sneak peak of his Ozcuras in the Dargoina mountains, lead by Pumne the Ozcura as warband leader, in the time between the Fall of Roccasone and before the invasion of the Sargos-Degoland Union, when the Dark Legion had to force their way across the mountain castles protecting the Pass.


Mature Content

Other of the first-time contributions to Aiers -and the last official contribution to the Art Jam- would be the Lord Rud of Smore, who brought us a story during the early Pamelchristopherian War, when the Ruhenian forces of Südchristophenia landed in the Principality of Pamelia, trying to take by surprise their capitol of Montdunan. In the story of Sir Rud of Smore, we follow a brilliant officer of the armored brigade of the Regular Princely Army of Pamelia, riding into battle her Formaggio-Talliani CA-89 Lanciere Tank, supporting an infantry unit of Amazons of Death in their task.

The Remnant Comic will be once more time be present for this occasion, bringing to us Cake -and Shiks!- in a birthday themed picture. As well, Argora the Galaw Orc, being rather unhappy -as usual!-. Maybe she's so unhappy this time, because he didn't upload her to the main gallery, but left her hidden in that extense, secretive gallery he have in his, reason why I have always to stalk his activity and comments, to find these drawings scattered as Easter Eggs across deviantArt?

Legion by IxisNyx One left over Shik by IxisNyx Legion by IxisNyx
Ixis the Nyx of Nixia brought a Shik Legion -for my birthday, but as well for the Art Jam!!-

Not only that, but as well the Zannas Adventurer Guild comes once more to the spotlight in an equilibrated adventurer party!

MDHA helgate sewer by demonfootarts
In the sewers of Hellgate, Clone Rebels gather by the hand (Foot?) of Demon Foot Arts: leaving aside their differences -as which corporation cloned them, be Azimuth Pharmaceuticals or Kasparov CIA-, the rebels of the MDHA -Movement for the Artificial Human Rights- prepare to fight against the oppresive regime of Hellgate and their inhuman treatment of clones.

The Muhbahr Ocean, somewhere off the coast of Hin, near the port city of Khambavati
Leena Lafiel never felt so far away from home.
As a warm breeze swept over the deep blue waters of the vast Muhbahr Ocean, waves lapping vigorously against the rusted-steel hull of the cargo ship, she took in a strong whiff of salty air, hoping the open deck up top would clear her head. The bowels of the ship, from the narrow hallways to the tiny cabins, reeked of rust-tinted sludge and years of sweaty, unwashed bunk-sheets. There was only so much her nose could take and spending the last leg of the journey trapped inside the hull didn’t exactly sound fun to her.
But things were different. So much had changed. Even the air didn’t set her mind at ease. It was foreign to her, tinged with sand and tropical leaves. It was nothing like the dry smell of harvested wheat in fall or the sweet scent of grapes growing in vineyards in the summer. Those were the old smells of Pameli

Madasajo92, brings us Flags, Flags and Flags, giving life once again to some concepts I had almost forgotten long ago for the national flags of countries such as Klau-Seng in modern Aiers, in far Hieyoks. Not only that, but he wrote a story of two former soldiers of the Pamelian Princely Army -an Amazon of Death and a soldier- who after the bitter defeat of Pamelia, following the tradition of their foremothers, went onward as soldiers of fortune in the distant Klau-Seng.

COLLAR - Sale Time! by Kiborg-Graph

Mate, using the power of pixel art made a Canaia village: the Canaia are Neroz dark elves, closely related to the Drow but who remained and survived in the surface!

The Rimehelve by Powerhouse411
Power House 411 is an old contributor to Aiers, who back in the 2014 had taken interest in the Hieyoksmainer Orcs, servants of the manaá wielding giants, the Trelkas. As I hadn't checked for long the submissions to the group of Aiers, I almost miss this one!

Had to re-read the other tales of his half-orc servant of the Trelka and his oversized -and wasn't a wasted effort!- to remember where they had been left... which brings to my own memories, the many stories I have left for long, forgotten, in my own dA!

This Smell like Doublecross

The boots of the dwarves echoed down the mine. And this lack of any other sounds worried the two dwarves. Specially as they were walking among dozens if not hundreds of goblins, silently staring at them from the dark.

“By Ergundra, I would have never thought these creatures could be so silent” one of them said, nervously checking again the leather bag with the orders and plans they had to carry. “I feel like any moment, one of their grabby hands will put a dagger between my ribs, I tell you!”

“For something you wear armour, no? So shut up and let’s keep going.” His armed escort hissed from behind the chainmail that covered her face, for she was indeed a female, but only who had often dealt with dwarves would identify as feminine her gravelly voice.

They made other turn. Yet more goblins there stood silently, hanging from the beams, standing. Watching. But making no move.

“Gods be damned” the messenger complained again. “This smell like doublecross. This STINKS like doublecross. Next turn they will fall over us, that’s for sure”. He cursed his luck for being chosen for this mission.

“It’s more probable here to die from shoddy craftsgoblinship here than an ambush” the escort told the courier, trying to ease him as she pointed some of the beams of the tunnel. “Goblin mines. Mind your head.”

As they crouched under a broken beam, the courier saw a menacing goblin, staring at him and cleaning her nails with a knife.

“How can you be so sure?”

“If something we have in common, dwarves and goblins, is that we try to protect our children and women” this later part being said by a female dwarf warrior herself, thought as nails, would have caused a smile for the courier in other occasion. “There are too many goblin imps. Too many matrons. They won’t risk attacking us, as we cross in the middle of the tribe. If anything, they would ambush us somewhere quiet and isolated.

While the courier had worried by being surrounded by goblins of all kinds and ages, now he worried what would happen when they left them behind.

But they will complete their mission successfully, bringing the orders and plans to the newly founded Dwarf Fortress of Airomead. But the Courier was right at something. This smelled like a Doublecross. But this time wouldn’t be the goblins to do it –the goblins who had granted permission for the dwarves to build a civilian trade outpost beyond their lands, and for dwarves to use their tunnels as a shortcut, in exchange of mining tools and plans and help to build an aqueduct. Because in his leather bag, was precisely the order for the civilian trade outpost was the secret order for the trade outpost –turned fortress- to begin the war against the Goblins from both flanks, to take the tunnels they wanted and needed for trade.

Original sketch was from 2012! Found in the same sketchbook as a couple of others, and finished now in the 2018!

Negeemi Guard
Old sketch of 2012, Inked today. Was trying to get the feeling to a Negeémi drow helmet. Didn't quite liked the result thought. 
Do you want something?

"Uhm? Do you want something?"

"The lads over the table are making a wager, so we need to say who's right and who's paying the next round of beers -one for you as well, fair lady, of course, for bothering you!"

The girl looked up and down the man. A young human, but not quite bad looking. 

"Which is the wager?"

The man didn't said there where actually two bets going on. The one he was about to tell her, and the other who could get laid with her -and how much would it cost-.

"We were wondering... are you an elf, a Quadroon Elf, Half Elf or a Quarter Elf?"

The girl frowned. And decided to left.

"Oh, come on!! It's just an honest question! And you can get a free beer for only answering it!"

It looks like nobody was going to win neither of both bets tonight.

Old sketch from 2012 -maybe some of the earlier drafts of Bogilla?- that I found around and decided to ink.

Bogilla Sybil'innu -the character here- is actually a Quadroon -3/4 elf-, or at least she had believed that for most of her life!
"Can we eat now?"

"Are there still orcs around?"

"Yes! And they are going to take and eat all the good stuff!"

"Then the answer is no."

"What? Awwwww that's so lame!"

"There's a pecking order, you know. It's natural."

"I thought Harpies where the apex predator! The greater creation of the union of the Winds! Why we need to wait for some filthy orcs to finish?!"

"Because we are two and they are many, and they have these horrible bow-thingies, and many of them would wounder what an harpy tastes like! So be patient, and wait! There are anyway enough for everybody down there!"

The little harpy wanted to still complain, but she knew better than to keep nagging at her mother -she was going to miss the Eyes! And she LOVED the eyes!-, so she remained in the branch of the dead tree that towered the battlefield where the Black orcs of the Nigromante of Tok-Thoria had clashed with the Enkish humans of Enkel. They weren't the only uncommon sight to be find in that dead tree that normally wasn't seen in the highlands of Nohalion: along the two waiting harpies, hanging like a sinister mature fruit, where the bodies of prisoners and deserters the orcs had hanged. The little chick was pondering if she could try to nib one of the bodies, but the stern look of her mother made her desist.

"Don't worry" the older Harpy told her daughter. "This is only the beginning. There will be plenty of battlefields for us to feast and grow fat!"

And she was right. The ambitions of the Nigromante of Tok-Thoria was larger than his armies -and he marshalled one of the largest forces known to Aels-. Indeed as the carrion mother said, there would be plenty of flesh to eat for the vultures that followed the armies of Tok-Thoria.

The sketch of this drawing was originally from 2012, of an old sketchbook I was looking around and that I decided to ink!
Argora's Rapscallions
Desperate Kdaimon Human fishermen, trying to escape hunger and taxes of their demon lords. Dishonoured Hieyoksmainer orcs, who had left their giant master die. Kanov second sons, looking to make fortune to form their own farms. Galaw High Orcs thirsty for adventure and blood. Renegade Human Knights and mercenaries of the Western Kingdoms. Port drunkards of the worse taverns of uncertain lineage. Ozcura grey orcs port prostitutes, bought and brought on board both as a diversion for the sailors, an investment of the captain and finally as warriors. Snow elf hunters, caught in their canoes and "recruited" as guides in the northern waters. Escaped slaves hoping to return to their homelands, and slaves bought to fight. Doroz cursed elves, marginalised by their own kind. Bankrupted traders and deserters of the armies of the Demon Lords, and maybe one or two demons -or some bastards with a claimed faint trace of demonic blood-. Goblins expelled by their clans for crimes they would never confess. Captured Vanolosé accountants.

Argora didn't really cared at all what they where, and what they had been, and in most cases, who they where even now as the motley crew of her filthy and old ships. For the Galaw High Orc former bandit and former slave turned slaver, this anonymous ragtag band was only a tool for her own ends. 

Argora -the captain of these scum of the seas of Hieyokscream and Tok- it's a character of the Reckless :iconshiftingpunk:, the writer half of :iconrecklesscharge:.

The sketch of this drawing was originally old -very old-, back from 2012, and I recently rediscovered it, going across my old notes, and decided to ink it, adding more characters and a background. I think how old the initial sketch was may be clear on the character of the centre and front, as even with some corrections I still aren't completely happy how he ended.
