synthesine:

I’m opening commissions!

  • I am okay with creatures and mech; same rules apply to them as the character commissions. Nudes are okay but no explicit material (nsfw).
  • All work except for pixel art is painted.
  • These commissions should only be for personal use. For any commercial work, please contact me separately.
  • Revisions are okay, but any big changes will have additional negotiable prices.
  • I reserve the right to use the commissioned material for any further personal purposes (e.g. portfolio); the commissioner will be credited.
  • I reserve the right to refuse any work.
  • All payments will be made through Paypal. Paypal information will only be given when email contact is made.
  • You will pay upfront but full refund is guaranteed if I can’t finish the commission. 
  • Commissions will only be taken through my email: mxedkim@gmail.com

Please send any further inquiries to my askbox or to the email address provided.

Thank you!

couple of bronzey things, a stylized bat and a whale shark. When I made this whale shark as a commission I made two so the other one is for sale here.


Here’s two recent commissions, a chromodoris westraliensis nudibranch and a cute little oarfish. I’ll probably make more of these nudibranchs and add them to my store in the fall I love how they look.


indigobleau said: What is your standard canvas size for your digital pieces? Specifically landscapes/enviros.? Some of them seem pretty big and detailed while others are not (second question of the day lol)

2000 to 2800 pixels on the longest side is a good place to start, bigger if you have plans to print or need that extra detail. I don’t pay attention to ratio since I crop as I paint so the size always changes.

all  of  these  ones  were done smallish at 2100 x 1500 because they were quick things

This one I wanted to put tiny small details into so it was 3700 x 5100

while this one was done 9600 x 4800 wide since it was going to be printed huge, but I started smaller and scaled up once I had it mostly blocked out.

(your first ask made me start looking through my archive, I think the longer ago I did something the more I like it)

I need stuff to listen to while I work.

Anyone have some links to good music playlists, not too technical podcasts or long chill (no yelling and screaming) LPs?


A better picture of the mantis shrimp I make, look at all the tiny little legs.

Anonymous said: If you have the time, I think you could try to make some changes to the palettes of your meme. Well mostly 22, they all in the same values.... Besides that, it would have been nice to take the theory of colors in account more when making them.... It's just that you seemed to truly want to come up with a good palette but I felt, your first try was not yet quite successful with that. Sorry if my criticism is unwelcome.

I’m not going to make any changes, it was just a quick thing with more contrast than the others floating around since people used it more as ‘use these 5 colours and 5 colours only’ thing rather than as a palette to mix from as needed (which is how I use them).

I don’t have the time but you should give it a go and see what you come up with, it’s a good exercise at least to see what colours you gravitate towards. I basically use the same shade of cyan blue in everything I paint. 

#22 was completely intentional, though looking at the web version it’s too bad they aren’t exactly the same value, just very close.

a penguin in #5 (from this set)
I got a few requests for penguins so I think a few people were subconsciously influenced by the mouse-roll-over header image thing I have.

I didn’t like the one of these going around so I made my own.


What makes a good limited palette? I think it needs both contrast in value and in colour temperature. A gradient from one middle value muddy colour to another is not a good basis for an entire painting.


I’ll take some suggestions and feel free to use this - don’t be afraid to mix the colours.


(edit: forgot to mention, tag with jellyfish palette if you do one so I can see)

hello tumblr,

what are your favourite ink drawings or artists who have interesting linework?


Anonymous said: What kind of glaze do you use?

I use this, (Rust-Oleum Interior Crystal Clear Water-Based Poleurethane, Gloss Finish.) if you use that make sure you get the right one, oil based will ruin your polymer clay.

I glaze a thing and let it dry for 24 hours then I rebake it at 210F to harden the glaze, it works wonderfully. The sculpy glaze is terrible, after a year the pieces start to get dull looking and it’s really expensive for the tiny amount you get.

I need to make a faq…..
