:star: Commission Status: OPEN!

So I'm tidying up my gallery and I can't help but loathe my bursts of inactivity. I post daily on my Facebook, but my account here goes largely unmaintained until I have a real finished work to post. Are you guys interested in seeing Work In Progress posts? I don't usually finish drawings in the same day I start them, I tend to let them sit for a while, and posting them unfinished encourages me to jump back in, especially with feedback. I'd probably scrap the WIPs over time and make a dedicated folder for them.

In other news, I did the first eight pages of my webcomic Lore of the Envoy for my Senior Project class. They are left-to-right (American/European style), and all painted like this one.

The pages are riddled with errors, though, ones I feel I'm not quite skilled enough to fix yet. A lot of anatomical shortcomings that warrant completely redoing the pages. I really just want to move on and draw the rest of the story and just let myself improve over time (I have absolutely no problem being one of the comics that starts off looking like butt and then turns awesome). Long-running series tend to do that anyway, especially when you look at shonen manga. Should I really be so worried about these first eight pages if they're done? There's sound effects missing and I want to get a text style down, but that won't take more than a couple hours... versus the many hours it would take to redraw each page.

I'm also doing black gutters where bleed gutters don't work (most pages can have bleed gutters, where the gutter area is filled with a bleed of an existing panel). I'm still not quite sold on it yet. It's less distracting than white gutters, though, that's for sure. I'll see how it turns out as I go. It's not as hard of a fix as redrawing whole pages, of course.
I'm probably going to be drawing the pages traditionally with in and such and then painting over that, just for the accuracy of drawing right on the paper. I think I stiffen up a little too much when working digitally, or at best I'm really wobbly and inaccurate with line. Also hoping that doesn't make the first pages stick out too much, since they were mostly done digitally.

Other than that, I'm pretty caught up on commissions and have been doing quick sketch portraits for my friends back home, of their League of Legends characters of choice. I've got one more to do, Zed, and I'll be giving him a go tonight or tomorrow. I want to compile them together in the end as some cool team-up poster deal. They've been pretty fun thus far, and lots of style/process experimentation!
*UPDATE* Zed complete!

COMMISSION INFORMATIONSo I've gotten a lot of requests for commissions and the one thing I'm missing is organization! I don't have many examples to show(and nothing specifically a bust or full-body, but you should get the gist of what those would entail), but as soon as this gets off the ground I'll be able to supply more. Commissions will be for a full-color illustration in my manga style.
:star:Greyscale Sketch $20
A greyscale sketch will be a quick greyscale drawing. By their nature, there will not be revisions given for this type of commission. These are often rough and "incomplete," as they are sketches and not finished works.

:star:Bust/head shot $30
Self-explanatory, this is essentially a character portrait. In some cases, more can be drawn.

:star:Waist-up or 3/4 shot $60
From head to the waist or upper-thighs, composition permi
COMMISSION STATUS! [OPEN]Here I'm going to put live commissions so both parties can keep track of what's going on where. I didn't expect to get enough traffic to commissions for this to be a relevant thing!

How are you able to do your faces, heads, and bodies so perfect?

Just practice I guess? It's all far from perfect for me, but it doesn't happen over night!
