Commissions

Character Commissions + other info!
Serious inquiries only! Also, I don't accept points, but rather something tangible and useful like real money. Only putting this up so I can have it present at all times. Also, I'm totally not okay with Deviantart taking a share of what only belongs to me, so again, I do not accept points and I certainly charge more than 8000 points worth on average. Paypal preferable. 

Anyway, unless otherwise noted, I'm available for any freelance and commission work. Please contact me here or via email (deimosremus (at) gmail.com) for further details and questions. 

Also, and I'm not going to say this more than once: I DON'T DO REQUESTS OR FREE ART OF ANY KIND, so don't bother asking me for such things. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also, this isn't related to commission work, but if anyone would like to use any of my images on another site, blog, or even for use on a tattoo, please contact me first, ask for permission and discuss terms and/or fees if applicable. 

Thanks!

DOOM: The Marine

UAC Personnel Log: 0012_93- The Marine

According to recovered UAC Military personnel files, a marine was punitively sent to Mars for assaulting his commanding officer who had ordered his unit to fire upon civilians in a riot at UAC Earth Central. The marine, along with the rest of those stationed on Mars, were consequently posted to Phobos after the security request was granted following the Hell Gate's appearance. Assigned perimeter defense, the marine was left alone while the rest of the unit proceeded inside the Phobos base; they were killed shortly after their arrival. Audio and video logs have confirmed that the marine was responsible for clearing the two moon bases of their demonic captors with an almost inhuman sense of simultaneous brutality and precision. After being transported to Earth and then to Hell itself, the demonic forces were wiped out, and any stragglers were taken care of by the resistance or went into hiding. 

The personnel files at UAC Earth Central were found to be corrupted due to the damage the facility undertaken following the invasion. The lone marine's name is unknown, and when asked by Earth's resistance, the marine didn't know either. It is as if something fired off  in the man's brain from the shock of the invasion and the subsequent bloodshed and violence… perhaps a form of extreme PTSD. Based on post-invasion tests and therapy, this shock theoretically allowed him to block any human emotion, essentially snapping him to become a berserk killing machine. Though the marine didn't talk much, a name would frequently pop up during his therapy sessions; Daisy. Eventually, the marine cut off ties to the UAC completely, and was never heard from again.

DOOM: The Icon of Sin

UAC Hellgate Artifact No. 00D2_M30: Religious Tablet 

Shortly after the Marine made contact with the resistance, UAC procured an ancient stone tablet, depicting a demon shockingly close to the doomed soldier's first-hand account of the biggest demon he had ever seen. The following set of verses was inscribed on the back. 

1For it is commanded of my brethren- of Dis, of Pandemonium, of Erebus and Limbo- lay waste to thine Enemy's children and theirs. 

2O' Baphometh, Pantocrator! 

3The shores of Hell will run red with the blood of the Oppressor's kin, and their flesh shall be consumed.

-Baphometh Canticulum 

UAC Demonic Entity Log: 014- The Icon of Sin

After plunging into Hell itself to vanquish Earth's destroyer, the Marine lost all contact with UAC and the human resistance. Describing what he had experienced, the Marine told of a gargantuan demon dwelling inside Hell's Tower of Babel, larger than anything he had encountered prior. After he had relayed what he had seen to UAC, the research team noticed a connection between the Marine's story and an artifact the team had recovered months before. Seen in icons and hieroglyphs, the entity was described to lack an appropriate vessel body, instead attaching itself to the inside of the tower. It was said to have had a special mode of attack, different than any other of Hell's forces. Spawning from an exposed brain in the demon's forehead were what the team referred to as "Soul Cubes"- spectral containers housing the human souls of the damned, that upon impact with solid surfaces, erupt and transform into members of the demonic army. According to the marine's reports, demons often acted on their own accord, whether in cooperation with each other or not. Though in the presence of this monolithic devil, the demon horde acted in controlled unison.

So, in case anyone here hasn't heard already, Nintendo announced not just one, but TWO new Metroid titles:

Metroid Prime 4 for the Switch
Metroid-Samus Returns (Nintendo's heavily belated remake of Metroid II) for the 3DS. 

You'd think I'd be extremely excited for this, but I unfortunately can't say I really am, and here are my thoughts on why. 

Do I want these games to be good? Of course I do. Do I think they CAN be good? Sure, but I have more reservations than praise regarding this announcement. 

Metroid Prime 4: 

Metroid Prime 4, at least to me, feels like Nintendo's way of covering their ass, regarding how badly they've treated the series for the past several years. It's a sequel to a trilogy that has already wrapped up, so to speak, but moreso it's a way of covering up the intentions of the Samus Returns (more on that below). They don't care enough or have confidence in Metroid's brand to put out a completely new game, but rather a a sequel to a series that ended a decade ago. Another Prime game sounds fine to me, but ONLY if Retro Studios is behind it. But that's not the case here. Considering Nintendo's horrible treatment of Retro Studios, much of which was perpetrated by Kensuke Tanabe, it seems insulting that Tanabe is leading Metroid Prime 4 with a new team of his own, on a series of titles only made possible by Retro. Tanabe is also responsible for Federation Force, that farce of a "Metroid" installment that was met to such poor reception. 

Considering there is next to no information about Prime 4, all I can do now is speculate. Only its title was shown, so for all we know it could be another case like Skyward Sword or Breath of the Wild, where it comes out much later than anticipated; perhaps as long as 4 years from now with nothing to show. I'm a pretty cynical guy, and Nintendo has a long way to go before I trust them with the Metroid series. So as of right now, I can't say I'm all that enthusiastic. 

Metroid-Samus Returns:

Metroid 2 has been long awaited to be remade, but the timing on this announcement just reeks. Whether or not this game was in development for a while I don't know, but it coinciding so soon after the bullshit DMCA takedown of AM2R, it seems to be merely cashing in on how well the fan-game was received and how much buzz it got after nearly a decade of loving development went into it. It's damage control on Nintendo's part, seeing as how much they've shown of it already. Prime 4 was only announced to make it look more legitimate. 

As for what was revealed, it's a lot more to go off of than Prime 4. The gameplay looks...okay. I've never been a fan of 2.5D platformers, and I will say that this game looks pretty ugly. I get that sprites aren't common anymore, but graphically, this is a bit of a let-down. My biggest concern is that it looks like the controls have an Other M influence to them, and the gameplay footage showed what looked like a lot of scripted events, which  is a gaming trend that I cannot stand. It looks like it could be a fine game if Nintendo plays their cards right, and for the the legacy of Metroid, I hope it is and that Nintendo is done sabotaging one of their greatest franchises.

It just goes to show, Nintendo doesn't give fans a Metroid 2 remake when they want one, so they make a new one to ride on the coattails of a (probably better) fangame that filled that want already. They're too late. 

Overall, I'm not sold on what was shown. I'm a natural skeptic, and Nintendo has done so much to alienate Metroid's fans that I not only have lingering resentment for the company, but am weary that these new titles could crash and burn. The announcement of both these games feels a bit desperate and rather cynical.

Hi there! I'm a huge fan of your reimaginings of classic games, like your Zelda and Ghosts & Goblins redesigns. I was wondering, have you ever considered doing a similar project for Castlevania?

Thanks so much, I appreciate that! 

Yeah! I've considered doing one of the first Castlevania, but if I do, it'll be a bit of a wait before I start, since I've got a few other projects planned first. I haven't delved much into the series yet, but I'm planning on reading up on 'em and playing more of them as the year goes on. :)
