➤ Commission progress

General rules:

  • I'm good at drawing animals / dragons / Pokémon / [insert your desired fandom here].
  • No. Humans. Ever. Anthromorphic characters are fine, tho.
  • I really can't figure out how clothing works, soo... Guess you're better off with your character being naked.
  • I roll way better with a reference. Even if you think it is badly drawn, I really don't mind because it helps a lot!
    Twenty completely different references on the other hand are very confusing. So please, don't go full "take this from that and this from those". I'll cry. Literally.
  • So, I'm not really up for complex backgrounds just yet. Want some funky colorful shadow casting from your character, that's absolutely fine. Some colored circle behind your character's head/shoulder area? Sure thing! Big ass fire, engulfing the whole background? Call me in! But... yeah, you get where I'm coming from.
  • For now, I'd like to refrain from NSFW pieces whatsoever. I've never done any and I don't feel like starting to get in touch with them just yet.
  • Want process sketches? Get process sketches!
    I can (and will either way) send some after basically any step if you want me to. (So sketching, even more sketching, inking, coloring...)
    Please note that I will raise the price if I have to e.g. scrap everything after being finished with the lines. I'll always be willing to do changes.
    But the sooner you decide you don't like what I did and want me to do it differently, the better.

Payment rules:

  • I prefer split payment. Which means: 50% as soon as I start working on the piece and 50% after I'm finished and you're completely satisfied with the outcome.
    I mean, if you're okay with paying 100% of the price beforehand, heck, that's fine by me as well. Just wanna be sure we're both A-OK in the end.
  • If you decide to cancel the commission, there'll be two cases: I didn't even start? Get 100% refunded.
    I already started? I'll keep the 50% you paid me beforehand. Just mentioning: I put time, work and love into your pieces, so I think you can relate to that decision.
  • I accept payment via PayPal and - in case that works smoothly? - regular bank accounts, I suppose. I don't really have any use for Points, tbh.
  • Prices are set per character - so two characters means double the price, three characters means trice the price, etc.
  • If afore mentioned second (third/forth/...) character is mostly hidden behind another one or absolutely lacking in any detail, we can of course discuss this.
    Generally: There's an exception to every rule. Keyword case-to-case basis.

Order rules:

  • Comment below or send me a Note to place an order and fill out the following form:
  • Type of Commission: Headshot (or Waist Up) / Fullbody
    + Sketch / Lineart / "Simple color" / "Full color"
  • Characters / references:
  • Desired pose / displayed personality: Put literally anything here which helps me to depict your character the way you want me to!
  • Payment method:
  • Total:


  1. Rinku (Ground Monotype Squad - 13 Pokémon) [Currently: Shading/Highlighting (~7% done)] Sketch, Lines
  2. Rinku (Flying Monotype Squad)
  3. Rinku (Fire Monotype Squad? Dunno yet.)
So, a friend made a huge order because I urgently needed money and paid all of it after I finished one of the four pieces - yay! 
No pressure or anything! (Absolutely not.) But fear not: There's more!

Wait list:

  1. Open
  2. Open
  3. Open
  4. Open
  5. Open 
If you wish to order a drawing (or multiple) and my slots are occupied, feel free to leave a comment / note nonetheless!

So, what's the deal with "Simple Color" and "Full Color"?

Ryu #3 [June 2016] by Ryokara Ryu #4 [August 2016] by Ryokara Abe (Monster Hunter) [May 2016] by Ryokara Brachydios (Monster Hunter) [June 2016] by Ryokara Blue Wyvern [February 2017] by Ryokara 7th Gen Starters [August 2016] by Ryokara
Note: I didn't come up with a more fitting name. "Complex Color" sounded weird, too. So, I went for "full".

So, these are examples for "simple color". They're flats with some highlights, very basic shading and/or gradient, as soon as I see need to place those.
Basically, that happens most of the time when I really want to express the depth and/or texture of a part of the character.
Also, I am most definitely convinced that detailed and complex color isn't working, so I'm not going to offer that explicitly.

Pokemon Reborn Team [Commission] [May 2017] by Ryokara Tiirran (Flight Rising) [December 2015] by Ryokara Edna (Flight Rising) [December 2015] by Ryokara Coatl (Flight Rising) [January 2016] by Ryokara Commission [February 2016] by Ryokara #587 Emolga [June 2015] by Ryokara
As for Full / Complex / Detailed color, those are some of the examples for that.
Some of these pieces are rather old and some details really badly executed, but once upon a time, I faced proper coloration more open-heartedly
I've been changing my style of shading every once in a while, but lately, I got stuck on "smoother shadings". (I fail to express that properly in English, sorry. orz )
Actually, I'm yet to be completely satisfied with how I do it, because it is really time expensive, but in the end, I'm always confident in the result.


Please note that I am - above everything - human.

First off: I did't make any bad experience with this behavoir myself yet and everyone's been very, very patient so far - and I'm very happy about that.
I just want to make sure. See, your commission will take time. Currently, I've got a lot of spare time on my hands - thus, a lot of time to draw.
Soon though, I'll start working every day in shifts. Never done that before and I fear, it's gotta be hard on me and my low blood pressure.
Afterwards, I'll be moving, etc etc. There will be days, I don't feel like drawing or won't have any time for it, as much as I'd love to.
Lastly, I'm far from being a professional. Still, I'm trying to make results look as good and refined as I possibly can.
Please understand that putting artists/people in general under (time) pressure does no good at all - it's rather the opposite.
It discourages, lowers the quality of the work and thus, the final outcome. Thus, thanks a bunch for your patience!


Any questions unanswered?

Feel free to ask them right here or write me a note about it! I don't bite, promised. <3
Thank you very much for reading and being interested!

I wonder if considering myself as a "Student" in here is accurate.
I study Media Informatics, but... so far that got nothing to do with arts...
Might as well go back to "Hobbyist". ouo;;

- practicing a lot and improving further, until I find my very own consistent art style
- drawing a nuzlocke comic. or multiple? oh boi
- being able to appreciate my own skills more often
- inspiring people with my person and art
- working in game design / development one day
- finding something like... a profession
- acting less akward around people lol
