ABOUT ME

I'm Laura, a digital artist from Spain. I love to paint mostly fantasy, though I also love mythology and spooky-horror themes 😊I always liked painting, but I grew up believing it was only meant to be a hobby, so I got two degrees in computer science and psychology and work as a programmer.But it didn't fulfil me, so later on I got an iPad Pro to learn digital art as a hobby and sketch in my free time. Little by little, I got more interested in art, and I saw myself investing more time in learning the basics and different techniques, until I decided to study it seriously by myself and try to make it a career.In my free time I like to read, play videogames and watch shows.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

- What can I do with my personal commission?
You can use it as avatar, banner, background, print it for your house, make a shirt for you and your friends (as a gift), give the commission as a gift to a friend... things that don't involve getting profit of the painting are ok. And if you are not sure, you can always ask! :)
- If I want to use the image for an avatar or banner, do I have to keep the watermark on it?
No, you can crop it out and credit me under it (for example in your profile) :)
- How often do you make updates?
Depends on the stage of the painting, I might do more than 1 a week during the concept stage because I need your feedback to continue. After the concept is locked, since the decisions have been taken, I usually do 1 update every 1 - 2 weeks, depending on how big the piece is and how much I advance that week.
- How much time do you take to deliver the rough sketch?
I take some days, depends on the painting, but the rough sketch is the base of the painting, so I research the theme of the painting and try different ideas until I chose the one I think it is more successful.
- I am selling my character, can I sell the artwork you did of my character with it?
No, while you own the character, and it is yours to sell, the artwork rights are mine (as per terms of service). You paid for the service of me painting your character, but unless you paid for the copyright rights, the artwork is my intellectual property. Therefore, you can't sell the artwork alongside your character.
- What do you use to paint?
I use mainly Photoshop and a Wacom Cintiq Pro 16. I also have an Ipad Pro 12.9 with Procreate to do painting exercises, sketches and draw on trips. Also, I like to do sketching exercises, fast drawings and ideas on a regular sketchbook, using HB, 2B and 4B pencils.
- What brushes do you use?
I use a mix of brushes from different artists packs, like Kyle Weber (comes with photoshop subscription), Istebrak, Ross Draws... I like brushes, so I like to try different ones from time to time.
- Do you have tutorials?
Not yet, but I might do in the future :)
- Why is there so much information in this website?
I am a person who doesn't like to make questions when I have to buy something or search for a service, I feel I am bothering them, or I am asking silly questions, so I prefer to search the information by myself on the website first. Therefore, I put here as much information I can in the most clear way possible in case visitors don't want or like to ask questions.

WORK PROCESS

Communication will be done over e-mail at the moment. The commission process is divided in 3 stages: Communication, Planning and Rendering.You have 2 revisions for the sketch stages.Communication
- Requesting commission: After reading/accepting the terms of service, you will fill up the form for your commission. I will review it and decide if it is something I can do or not. I will answer by e-mail.
- Talking phase: If I accept the commission, we will talk about other details, and then I will give you a quote and an approximated date when I will be starting the commission. If you are fine with it, then I will send you an invoice via PayPal (if the date is close) or I will put you in the waiting list (If the date is far away). Once is paid, I will start.- Notification list : If the commissions are closed, you can request to be put on the notification list (without commitment), so when I have slots you get notified. If you are still interested, you can follow the previous steps and send me the form. This list can take a short time or a long time, and it doesn't guarantee that I will take the commission (I need to review the request form first).Planning
- Research and sketch: I start researching about the painting theme, gathering references and information (for example, culture, ideas for possible positions, body types ...). With that, I sketch the rough idea for the pose, outfit, and background and I will send it to you for your approval (first revision). I will make corrections if necessary, and we will go to the next stage.
- Cleaner sketch: I will clean up the sketch, and you will have a second revision for the expression and details of the outfit. I will make corrections again if necessary, and we will go to the next stage. The concept is "locked" after this.Rendering
- Color and light: I try different color palettes and lighting roughly and choose the one that I think better suits the painting theme from my artist point of view. This is a guide for me to start painting.
- Painting: I block in the main colors, define objects, light, and shade areas. I go building the illustration bit by bit slowly, defining and adjusting.- Refinement: I refine further the painting, defining better features and details like jewellery, eyes, clothes...NOTE: My sketches/concepts are never completely accurate/perfect, and I keep adjusting and fixing things as necessary while I go painting.
