Coffee with Art: Commissions and Character Portraits

So…

I am dumb.

Like, REALLY dumb.

Like I am so frustrated with myself for being so dumb!

Yesterday, I was researching how commissions online worked, and during my research, something just clicked for me. What’s my favorite thing to paint? Realistic portraits. Whenever I got paid to make a custom piece of art for someone, which ones were I the happiest doing? Somebody’s portrait for a character they were playing in an RPG!

So, now I’ve decided I’m going to get to work on a bit of a portfolio for myself- starting with a couple nice oil paintings of my husband’s and my World of Warcraft characters. It’s gonna be fun.
