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) 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. 




LOZ Redux: Pols Voice by Deimos-Remus
LOZ Redux: Pols Voice
Underworld Enemy #13: Pols Voice

"A ghost with big ears and a weak point -- he hates loud noise."

-The Legend of Zelda Manual

Due to Ganon's meddling in the realm, the underworld is now home to a multitude of undead creatures, some even made animated indirectly by the corrupt sorcerer's range of power. Despite this, there are even ancient ghosts that have been dwelling in the labyrinths ages before Ganon's arrival in Hyrule. One such living corpse of a creature has been called the 'Pol's Voice'. The creature's name is translated from an antiquated form of Hylian, literally meaning "Voice of the Pol" with the word 'Voice' referring to the inner voice, essence or spirit of a living thing; a ghost. The word 'Pol' however has gotten mistranslated and reinterpreted over time, and is believed to be a shortened variation of some unknown base word, referring to the creature's bizarre, cat-like species; A species long extinct, only visually depicted in a handful of rare Hylian hieroglyphs. The Pols Voice tend to congregate only in the deepest sections of the underworld, due to their sensitivity to light and sound, floating through passageways with a certain sense of fluidity and buoyancy, as if swimming through the air. Though they only seem to attack if provoked, these strange spirits will latch onto the heads of their prey, or will choke them with their long ghostly tendrils. The Pols Voice usually proceed by draining their victim's life-force with a set of sucker-like teeth that reside under their hood-like faces. They are quite adept at moving through the claustrophobia-inducing dungeons, but aren't without their own weaknesses. Due to the creature's extremely thin skin, arrows are particularly effective weapons in combat, and a well placed shot may very well rip through several of them at once. 
Metroid: 30 years by Deimos-Remus
Metroid: 30 years
This piece is available as a print at my Red Bubble storefront, check it out!…

Ever since playing the original Metroid for the first time on an emulator about 10 years ago, the inaugural entry to the series (and the sequels that followed) solidified itself as among my favorite games of all time, for its unbridled sense of exploration, isolation, mood, atmosphere and fast-paced and rewarding gameplay. The first 3 games are particularly special to me.

Nintendo seems intent on tarnishing this once incredible series' legacy and name, by continuing to deny us a new fully-fledged entry to the franchise, instead pooling their resources into spinoffs nobody wants. Other M is a stain on Metroid's reputation, and I don't think it'll ever have a chance of recovery like Zelda has gotten. 

I know Nintendo doesn't give a single flying crap about Metroid anymore, but I still do. 
LOZ Redux: Like Like by Deimos-Remus
LOZ Redux: Like Like
Underworld Enemy #12: Like Like

"A tube-like monster that has a soft spot for magic shields -- he eats them up."

-The Legend of Zelda Manual

Despite Ganon and his sorcerers' vast knowledge of the natural and unnatural world, the labyrinths are home to a variety of undiscovered and rare monstrosities. One such creature has been dubbed the 'Like Like'; a rather bizarre and grotesque creature that resembles something along the lines of an underwater tunicate. Unlike tunicates however, the Like Like possesses a large number of crab-like legs, which can be heard scuttling across rocky cavern floors. The name Like Like comes from the gluttonous and 'un-picky' invertebrate's voracious appetite for anything living, dead or completely inanimate. For whatever reason, the Like Like particularly enjoys eating shields and weapons, perhaps because of the presence of metals, which digest slower in its highly acidic stomach than living material. Like Likes are more often seen in the darkest and most moisture-ridden sections of the underworld, their presence being associated with the sound of clacking steps, wet, suckling noises and a distinct pungent odor. If one is swallowed by one of these strange beasts, there's a small window of opportunity to kill it from within, usually by use of bladed weapons. 
LOZ Redux: Bubble by Deimos-Remus
LOZ Redux: Bubble
Underworld Enemy #11: Bubble

"The spirit of the dead. When it clings onto Link, he won't be able to unsheath his sword for a while."

-The Legend of Zelda Manual

Known for being very resourceful, Ganon and his sorcerers are not ones to let anything go to waste. Under the sorcerers' dark magic, full bodied corpses of bandits and intruders became the Stalfos, while solitary body parts and remains found in the tombs became something else entirely. Wrapped in blankets of ethereal flame, lone skulls and bones were transformed into Bubbles. Eerily floating down hallways and chasms, these brainless spirits aren't particularly combative. However, the Bubble's flame has its own special properties. Instead of possessing a high amount of heat as flame usually does, the flame of the Bubble is unusually freezing. The coldness heavily targets metals, the touch of which can make a sword too cold to wield for differing periods of time. As the flame is so unnaturally frigid, contact with the skin directly or even touching an affected weapon can cause profuse skin and nerve damage, which could eventually lead to necrosis of a limb if one isn't careful. The effect it has on weapons doesn't last particularly long, but as the Bubbles are often seen flying around other creatures and warriors, the inability to use one's own weapon in defense in a crowded chamber could lead to a quick and nasty death. 
LOZ Redux: Darknut by Deimos-Remus
LOZ Redux: Darknut
Underworld Enemy #10: Darknut

"The knight who lives in the labyrinths. He has lots of attacking power. He repels Link's attacks from the front with his shield."

-The Legend of Zelda Manual

Hyrule is home to many skilled warriors and soldiers employed to protect the kingdom and their sacred relic, the Triforce. When Ganon's forces invaded, a good deal of these men fled or were mercilessly slaughtered before they could do so. Among the top of Hyrule's royal military ranks are their heavily armed palace guards, meticulously trained in close combat with broadswords and shields. Ganon sought to corrupt these swordsmen and use them for his own purpose. With their lives spared, the guards were promised unfathomable riches and positions of high rank and power upon Ganon's seizure of the third and final Triforce. The guards initially resisted, but they were no match for the evil sorcerer's dark influence, and joined forces with their enemy. Though their distinct armor plating bears the royal insignia, these men were no longer recognizable as Hylian, their skin discolored and all semblance of humanity lost. As these unfortunate men were seen as traitors, they became despised by Hyrule's surviving populace and were given the derogative name 'Darknuts'. Patrolling the Underworld with iron fists, the Darknuts are perhaps Ganon's most formidable forces that wander the ancient labyrinths; smarter, stronger and more resilient than any beast. 
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 think the rest of the enemies designs and compositions are pretty much figured out, and  I'm starting to chip away at redesigning the bosses. The NPCs are also underway, so stay tuned! 

I'll be probably submitting them in the following order:
Keese + Vire
Zol + Gel  
Pols Voice *
Ghibdo *
Wizzrobe *X
Lanmola *X
Patra *X
Link's Inventory
The Old Man
Shopkeeper *
The Old Woman
Faeries *
After that, the Bosses will follow:
Dodongo *
Digdogger *
Gohma *
Ganon *
And finally, after them:
Link * X
Zelda *X

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

Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!

You need proof to call something "obvious" or a "fact", and since there is no such thing as "anti-proof"/"proof of absence in all of time and space", your idea of what "can't possibly be real" will always be invalid.
The fact that someone drew something is not proof that it is fictitious. For all you know it could exist in another universe.

So don't claim that you have knowledge beyond what is possible to know.
Don't act like that fictitious knowledge is anything factual.
It's just your anti-belief.
Beliefs are called beliefs because they are not know.
That doesn't mean they are impossible or that you could ever know otherwise.

If you think you can know that, you are a fool.

Pokemon: A Media franchise created in 1995 by Satoshi Tajiri of his and others' own imaginations, developed by Nintendo into a multimedia merchandising giant comprised of fictional characters, creatures and places. Fact. 

Stop throwing all this pseudo-philosophical bullshit at me (and on my wall, in a desperate attempt to embarrass me somehow?), because I'm not buying it. You're trying to convince me that fictional characters could be real in some universe and frankly, I don't care because I don't waste my time thinking about such things.  

Whatevs. Call me a fool all you want, ain't gonna make Pokemon or anime any more real. ;)
