I decided to throw another challenge to motivate me to draw creatures and stuff. This is called the A to Z Creature Challenge. As usual, once I start this, there's no turning back.  The rule is to draw a mythological, fantasy or even a horror creature (NO SCI-FI) you fondly remember or love that begin with the letter of each alphabet - a day.

Sounds pretty easy right? Well I already had two in mind so best of luck to any of you who want to take on this challenge!
Oh and commissions are still up, and slots are available so do drop a note.


p/s: someone ask me what's that signature I put on my artworks mean? I replied: "Death to whoever steals this work of art".



LINE ART WITH COLOR (NO BACKGROUNDS)- $30 (price may be charged differently. If its one character it'll still be $30 even if you want a full body view or a close up half body like the example I posted up. if its more than one character, I'll charge according to the number of characters instead).

ILLUSTRATIONS (LIMITED BACKGROUND) - $50 (just individual works ranging from still life to human figures)

They Come In Mint Packaging by tohdaryl, Get Yourself Spirited Away With Sake by tohdaryl, Purify by tohdaryl

DETAILED ILLUSTRATIONS WITH FULL BACKGROUND - $100 (price may increase on the number of characters, difficulty,details and time)
-For multiple characters people specify if you want them in the same picture

-If you want me to illustrate your OCs, please have reference pictures or short simple description ( i would much prefer to have a picture or a rough sketch to work off occasionally)
- Do not send me a whole story, I'm not interested in doing comic book collabs or anything like that (I have my own stuff to do as well)
-I'd prefer to have a large amount of freedom in my commissions and paint these works in my own style and approach
-If you want a DC style, Marvel style, super anime style, manga style, or other ridiculous styles that isn't mine - please find someone else to entertain your demands.  
- Do tell me if I should take my time or how urgent you want me to get the artwork done cause I do have other stuff as well such as RL. (If you want me to finish a $100 work say in one day - I'm not going to entertain you.)

-Mecha (really bad with it...except retro robots - I love retro bots)
-hentai/Porn/ecchi/hardcore yaoi/ yuri (I keep my gallery clean for general audiences)
-Anime or Manga stuff (Nothing against them. I'm trying to get out of the mainstream here so help me out)
-Excessive Blood/gore (I'm fine with Zombies and classic horror monsters)
-anything i find weird or uncomfortable


-I accept Paypal only
- Payment is to be made upfront once I agreed to take on your commission and before I begin the commission work.
- For the larger, heavier illustration commissions, its acceptable to pay the first half of the payment before I start on the artwork and the other half after I've completed it.

So drop a note and I'll get back to you whenever I'm lurking about.

Question, I would really like to do the A-Z challenge the thing is one of my favorite horror movie monsters is also one of my favorite sci-fi monsters (the xenomorph from Alien) and I was wondering if that would be appropriate for the challenge?

A zmeu! [link] Because really, who else is gonna give you a Z?
I always imagined them as inky-black men with flaming red hair, but you can pick any form you want. I mean, you are the artist. :shrug:

What do you mean no Sci-fi though? I'm guessing that means no stuff like big foot, aliens, or lovecraft creatures then?
