Art of Nicolas Martinez
I need commissions to pay for expenses related to my health.

heyitsmylessart:

For those who don’t know, I recently discovered that the Angiofibroma I thought I got taken care of last October came back. It’s an aggressive tumor that can cause serious damage to bone, cause serious nose bleeding, pressure to the sinuses, eyes, teeth and brain. I am scheduled for a CAT scan on August 29th. You would think, well that’s good! It’s being taken care of. Here’s the catch. My doctor is five hours away from me. That’s five hours there, five hours back. That’s a lot of money to spend on just traveling. I am going to need to see my doctor several times in these next few months for scans, tests and my surgery and my doctor wants it done URGENTLY.

This is why I am going to start up a major commission campaign. I still need food and a night’s stay at a hotel so that we don’t have to drive immediately back home in pitch black darkness on mountainous road. It’s scary, foggy, curvy and dangerous to drive at night. I would have to make maybe four to five trips to and from Halifax.

Commissions will be priced like this:

Sketches are $10

image

Line art is $15

image

Flat colours are $25

image

Textured Colour and Shading are $30

Although I have set prices, you have an optional choice to send a small donation along with your commission.

Rules and Guidelines:

These commissions are for personal use ONLY! Commercial use commissions aren’t allowed in this sale. If you want to commission me for commercial use project, please private message me by note and we can discuss your project and I will decide if I want to work with you. Again, these commissions are for entertainment purposes.

  • No PORN (I can’t stress this enough, I can be lenient enough with certain subject manners but I won’t draw pornographic material.)
  • No overly rude or offensive requests.
  • Any form of hateful requests will be NOT tolerated.
  • Keep sensitive subject manners to a minimum in your requests.
  • Please have reference pictures ready and if your order is in colour, your reference picture(s) must also be in colour if your commission requires colour.
  • My PayPal address is only for commissions, DO NOT SEND ME ANYTHING ELSE. It will be ignored as it is not my personal email address (which I am not providing).
  • Your commission can always be updated or changed. I will send you a work in progress to reassure your satisfaction.
  • If you bought a commission and wish to upgrade, you only pay the remainder left.
  • Be patient as I will be busy with commissions and IRL stuff.
  • Be thorough with your request *BE SPECIFIC* Send as many references as possible. If your commission isn’t to your satisfaction and I end up having to redraw large portions of your commission, that will mean A LOT of lost time and work.
  • Be polite and respect the artist.
  • Ask questions and make suggestions so that you are completely satisfied with your order
  • If I think your commission doesn’t follow the rules and suggestions, I may end up declining your request. Usually people are general good about their commissions so this isn’t much an issue as it is fair warning.
  • Please keep art stylizations of your characters to a minimum. If I have difficulties understanding your reference photos, your commission could end up delayed.
  • Pricing depends on the complexity of your commission. If you can, add $2-3 or equivalent amount to your order to cover currency conversion and PayPal fees. Pay half now and half after the commission is complete.
  • I will only accept PayPal orders. If you are interested in a commission, please send me a note on deviantART or send an ask over tumblr with your commission details and I will go over it with you. 
  • Please be sure to contact me first before sending any money.  I want to hear what you wish to commission first. I will send sketches of your commission so that any errors can be addressed promptly and to ensure your complete satisfaction.

Artbook 100% Funded!

So the artbook campaign has been 100% funded and we still have 11 days left! This book is definitely getting made! Thanks so much, everyone who hopped on and showed some support! I’m quite sure you will dig the contents! I’m just wrapping up the layout on it and then I will have it off to the printer by mid-August.

Once again, I’m not having a huge run of this beyond the numbers you see on the IGG campaign, so if you want to make sure you own a copy of this bad boy, be sure to preorder it! You have a week and a half left!

Thanks again! ^^


This artist has a wonderful mix of western/eastern sensibilities. Very much worth checking out! Preorder the book if you like it! :)
