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, I'm knee-deep in the middle of some comic projects, book illustrations and more, but I'm always available for character pieces. 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 and ask for permission. 

Thanks!

LOZ Redux: Aquamentus by Deimos-Remus
LOZ Redux: Aquamentus

Boss 1: Aquamentus

On one of two large islands in the center of Lake Hylia, Hyrule’s largest central inland body of water, sits an ancient tree. A tree that somehow feels like it was once a living creature, the surrounding air reeking of a deathly stench. Millenia ago, the tree was converted into an underground complex and entrance to the underworld by a tribe of ancient druids that worshipped one of the oldest demon gods: An aquatic dragon-like beast bestowed with the name Aquamentus. Though it is yet to be known why, carvings resembling that of an eagle are found all over the complex; a complicated labyrinth of cramped, crudely dug-out tunnels, with the entangling roots from the tree above creeping down below. Aquamentus is one of the oldest of the 6 demon gods, its large equine-like body emaciated and worn, its joints cracking, splitting and rattling as it moves. Its seemingly dilapidated body shouldn't let a warrior's guard down however, as its size and abilities are formidable. Adorned with a large horn near the top of its skull, Aquamentus has the ability to emit lightning from it as a conductor, the bolts of which can fatally burn and char any living thing. Ganon's possession of the creature has given it but one purpose, to defend the Triforce shard with its life. 

One of the elderly demon's offspring had also been captured and utilized by Ganon as a guard for another Triforce shard, found in a secretive tomb underneath an abandoned fairy pool in western Hyrule.

Figuring out which direction to take the Officer in. Ultimately thinking of a mix between modern military flight suits and the statuesque yet lean and lanky, organic proportions of many of Moebius' characters.

Hey guys! Just wanted to give a quick update of what I have goin' on! 

Knocking out the Underworld entries slowly, but surely! I have just about the rest of the enemies figured out, and have been brainstorming on the bosses and whatnot. 

An asterisk (*) denotes that the character/creature has been (re)designed, where as an 'X' denotes that I've figured out the composition/layout. Bolded Entries are completed. 

UPDATE:: I will be working on the Patra tonight, hopefully finishing and submitting him later, capping off the basic enemies! The NPCs are mostly figured out, as are a good chunk of the bosses (really excited about Dodongo and Ganon particularly). 

UPDATE 10/16/2016:: The bosses have been officially started, their designs and backstories are all figured out, and compositionally, they're getting there! I recently submitted Ganon in his human form, I will reiterate that I'm doing his transformed pig-demon version as well to cap off the bosses. 

I'll be probably submitting them in the following order:
Stalfos  
Keese + Vire
Goriya  
Zol + Gel  
Wallmaster
Rope
Moldorm
Darknut
Bubble
Like-Like
Pols Voice
Ghibdo
Wizzrobe
Lanmola
Patra *X
-------------------
Link's Inventory
Weapons
Items

-------------------
The Old Man
Shopkeeper 
The Old Woman
Faeries 
Ganon (The Sorcerer)

-------------------
After that, the Bosses will follow:
Aquamentus *X
Dodongo *X
Gleeok *X
Manhandla
Digdogger *
Gohma *X
Ganon (The Beast) *X
-------------------
And finally, after them:
Link * X
Zelda *X
Overworld Map

So yeah, still lots of work to do, but I'm confident that I'll get 'em all done in given time.

LOZ: Ganon the Sorcerer by Deimos-Remus
LOZ: Ganon the Sorcerer
NPCs: Ganon the Sorcerer (pre-transformation)

Hailing from a long-lost tribe from the desert, Ganon and his people were banished from Hyrule, upon the realization of the kingdom that one of the tribe's own descendants had nearly brought upon the realm's destruction generations prior. Consequently growing up in the desolate wastelands near Death Mountain, Ganon had made bringing justice to his tribe his ultimate goal in life. Starting from humble beginnings and learning from the tribe's shaman, Ganon found that using magic could, in given time, grant him what he sought. As Ganon became more talented and driven with the forces of magic and started to delve into the occult, more of Ganon's people passed on, and less of them believed he could actually do what he intended. With his motivations dwindling and his power and prowess growing, Ganon eventually lost sight of what he was fighting for to begin with, coming to realize what the use of dark magic could do for him. 

Years passed, and Ganon's knowledge of occult magic grew stronger, and the procurement of fabled objects and weapons magnified his strength further. An enchanted trident said to have belonged to an undersea king became Ganon's staff, triplicating his output of destructive power. With much of the world's knowledge now known to him, Ganon's aging, dying mind resulted in changed goals. Reading of the great power contained within the triangular ancient runes known as the Triforce, Ganon sought to procure them in hopes of saving his frail and withering body. Securing the Triforce of Power and Wisdom, the sorcerer became more powerful and influential than ever before, but at the cost of his body rapidly changing to reflect what he had become; a monster motivated by an insatiable greed.

With a quality gallery like yours, what more to ask from it...

If you don't mind sharing...How do you prepare your color swatch/palette?

Thanks a ton, I appreciate it! 

I've gotten a lot of color theory info from the book "Color and Light" by James Gurney, which has helped me a ton. Really intuitive and simply explained, and a pretty cheap book to acquire too, so I can't recommend it enough! But, another thing that illustrators can get away with is letting other pieces and photos influence their palettes, since color palettes aren't copyrighted. That's not to say copy them exactly, but for example, the recent zelda pieces I've been doing, I've been very much influenced by the works of N.C Wyeth, William Stout and Arthur Rackham. So, I'll sample from those to create a preliminary palette, and change what I need to from there, making certain colors cooler or warmer, lighter or darker, whatever works for my composition. Hope this helps! 

A good example of that would be these:

I really like your Dune portraits. I recently featured your art in a blog post about translating Dune to visual media (aeusoes1.blogspot.com/2016/10/cobalt-eyes-and-dark-skin-real-faces-of.html). You might also note that I recently started a podcast on my blog where I read SF with sound effects and solicit skiffy art. Feel free to check it out.

Thanks for the feature! Like your commentary a lot too! 

As for Duke Leto, does the quote really infer that he doesn't have a beard? Or does Herbert simply not mention the presence of one? I know Herbert is usually really specific with his character descriptions, and would've likely mentioned a beard, but the Baron's baldness wasn't mentioned either from what I can remember. Just curious to hear what you'd think. 

On a side note, he is cited to have said that John Schoenherr's legendary illustrations of the worms, the Baron and the Sardaukar are the most like what he envisioned. On that subject, I really don't quite like my Sardaukar, kinda wished I went more futuristic and 'Nazi-ish' with 'em, and less Uruk-Hai influenced.

Of course, artistic license is permitted, but the impression I got was that Leto had no beard. The description of his face as angular, combined with my expectation of a beard, reminds me of beardless pictures of Abraham Lincoln.
I like your instincts for an Aryan-style Sardaukar. That's not mutually exclusive from either Schoenherr's or your own renditions. They can wear heavy armor AND look like the villain in Rocky IV.

Happy belated Birthday, dude.

May the years continue to hone your skills like the sculptor with his marble.
