    Splendid, my good man. Absolutely marvelous :)

    She looks a bit more adult than I've imagined her (based on your own art). But hey, that's a side note at best :P

    Glad you like it! I'm absolutely ecstatic over it! :heart:
    And can you believe it cost me just 37$? :laughing:
    You can bet I'll be commissioning the rest of the team... Eventually. It'll take some time, plus, we really need a new Lizard before I can go for Octy, 'Ree, and Morgan...

    As to Eva looking too adult, I think it's just the art style.

    What is the usual going rate for commissions like that? What artists can you recommend that produce the best bang for your buck if I wanted to commission someone?

    I honestly couldn't tell you with much certainty. But in general real good quality commissions, on DeviantArt at least, where I was looking, can get quite expensive. 100$+ expensive. Especially for mecha, like this one.

    Before I chanced upon Omegalife, I went through only two other artists. Both would charge me around 150$ for the picture. I was prepared to pay that much, with the understanding that it would sadly be the only one I'll ever have... Unfortunately - or kinda fortunately, as it turned out - the deals fell through. One artist turned out to act, I felt, rather unprofessional, and when I called him out on it, he got offended and called the commission off. The second I tried apparently was in the middle of some crisis of creativity, and after 4 months of waiting called it all off with an apology.

    Asking Omegalife was really a shot in the dark. Unlike the previous two, he didn't have any mecha in his portfolio, at least nowhere near the style I needed. And he seemed to mostly do fetish art. But I liked his art style otherwise, so I chanced asking. He took the job... And for this, according to my other experiences, incredibly low price! And came through beautifully!

    Other than him, it's hard for me to recommend anyone. What would you like to commission?

    I have RPG characters from an Infinity RPG group that I'm a part of. If you go to the "Modiphius Entertainment" section of the forums and click on the "RPG" section it is the "Minotaurs" threads. Both the "O.O.C." & "Brigade" threads.

    The characters in question would be the ones I created. The two major ones would be a Morat Daturazi/Warrior Monk named Uja'rak Se'ok & a French/Aussie former Loup-Garou named Arabelle Archer. While I do have some minor characters that I would like to have a picture of Uja & Bella would be the "test run" so to speak.

    What are your thoughts on this? If you need an idea of what the characters are like then you can check the RPG threads.

    Well, other than Omegalife, you could maybe try HowXu? He did quite a few Infinity commissions, and his prices look reasonable as well. Though his style is very cartoony, even when not going full chibi.

    Other than that, I'm afraid you're on your own, sorry. Try trawling DeviantArt for artists who do commissions and whose style you like?

    Alright I'll do that. Thank you for taking the time to answer my inquiry.
    Oh one more thing, how did you pay for the commission? Paypal or a card?

    @Kathara_Khan @Errhile I think I got a name for a Varuna T.A.G. team. The Purple Pinchers named after the Caribbean Hermit Crab that lives on the East Coast/Atlantic ocean of the USA. What do both of you of this idea?

    Sounds good. Guess they'd be a PanO team?

    Yep. Varuna is a planet of beaches and the sea. It would fit the team and give them a nice nickname. The Purple Pinchers sounds catchy doesn't it?

    Nice!
    It wouldn't be the only team on Varuna, of course - PanO have a total of 33, distributed across the Sphere, and then there's YJ with their 35...
