I know it’s a natural reaction of humans to be repulsive by death..but I’ve always had a fascination for this ever since I was a kid and I’m exploring this fascination…

I see beauty in certain things that are hard to explain, even for myself…but I know that beyond the sadness there is a certain beauty in death, that I’m trying to show in my works.

I know this means not everyone will like my work, but at least, I can somehow try to make at least someone look at this in a different way than they are used to…for me death is part of nature, part of life..eventually everything will die, but nothing will ever be wasted..

Even the end of life… has a sublime beauty…

Hello again! it's been a while and I'm open for 2 commissions slots.

you can choose between two types:
1 character for 100$ USD
2 characters for 180$ USD

With these commissions I will have artistic freedom so I can experiment with backgrounds and ideas. It will most likely NOT be adult work, only tasteful nudity.
Here are some examples of how it might look like. Style varies a bit as I like to experiment with textures etc:

Autumn Morning by MaquendaForest Gate by MaquendaSerene Evening by MaquendaMessier 45 by Maquenda
Heartstrings by MaquendaPeaceful Slumber by MaquendaGrowing Light by MaquendaSpirit of Life by Maquenda

So if you want a slot, you only have to give me your character sheet and you can give me some themes/ideas and/or characteristics of your character if you like and I'll combine them in the painting! I can show you a sketch if highly desired, but it's very rough and I work faster otherwise.

Payment must be made upfront and through Paypal only!

Comment here if you're interested and note me afterwards if you grabbed a slot.

Slot 1 : 
Slot 2 :
