Between big time other commitments and a genuine vacation I'll be gone for another couple weeks. Sorry! Promise I have good stuff coming. Just didn't want my page rotting away here. :)
Bed and Breakfast

Inspired by:

Feather chain redraw... by Filiana

This piece features one of my favorite and I think most under appreciated characters in the Zelda games: Ilia from Twilight Princess.

This is another collaboration piece with the wife; again I built the 3D stuff, rendered it, and she took over with her (always) gorgeous post work. I love the soft diffuse glow in these, something I can’t ever seem to get right, hehe.

Thanks for looking!

Characters depicted age 18+.

So I've thought it over. The more artists I see moving to Patreon and basically abandoning their free accounts strikes me as shitty. I got into this to make cool stuff for you guys, not to make money. I make enough off of commissions to pay for hardware and then some and frankly, I'm not hurting for money right now so I think moving there is a stupid idea.

So here's my new plan: I'm working on a new website to act as a dedicated hub for my artwork moving forward. I've found a reliable host that doesn't have issues with my content, and I'm building the website now. No membership required, no facebook login bullshit. It'l have a donation form for those who do feel like kicking me a few bucks but it will be strictly voluntary and not shoved in your face every time you click a link.

  • Free download of full size renderings of my artwork. At the moment I'm outputting stuff in 5K (excluding portrait shots where its kind of a crapshoot on what size I go with). 
  • Special page to submit and upvote/downvote suggestions. I'm thinking maybe 10 or so ideas at a time, either ones I've come up with or ones submitted by fans. Ones most upvoted will be made first.
  • Maybe a comments system? I don't know just because between this and Tumblr ya'll have a ton of ways to get into contact with me so I don't know if you really need another.
  • NO ADS. Any decent provider isn't going to be willing to advertise next to my artwork anyway so who gives a shit. As long as guys stroke my ego occasionally with favs and comments, I'm ok. :)
Any thoughts?
Twilight Splendor by DarklordIIID
Twilight Splendor

Collaboration between the Fiance and I. As per usual I did the model work and she handled the post work. Initially the second version was going to be the final piece, but then mid way through she proposed adding the dragonfly hovering above her hand. Love the look. :D

Speaking of the dragonfly, that was courtesy of Alegion-stock.

Alternate version available on Tumblr. :)

What do you think of the art design known as TimmStyle?
DarklordIIID Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2015
On the real: Who are you? Occasionally you post random crap on my mature works, and now you're on my page asking about art styles when you know damn well I've barely ever drawn.

Why don't you find something to do?

Hey, dude.  Not to interrupt or anything, but have you forgotten about my "won request"?

Like, on your Midna piece Twilight Beauty V2, you asked a question about where the background came from.  I answered it right, and you accepted a request I sent in a note.

Did you forget about it?
DarklordIIID Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2015
...yes. :blush:

I also can't find the note. Mind re-sending? :lol: Sorry.
Andruril93 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
It's alright.  No hard feelings.  Re-sending now.
