This image came about talking to my friends about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like you do, and one of them was enamored of it enough to commission it! I’m especially fond of tony’s wide-eyed look of dismay and Hulk’s upside-down frown of pure joy.
HULK LIKE TIN MAN.
My commissions queue is CLOSED right now and probably will be into next year, so if you were looking to get something, er, ever, you might want to get on the wait list.

Commissioner of Shiny Pokémon strikes again! This time we have a shiny Eevee sleeping like a winter fox, one eye open in the glare perfected by my grumpy cat. I seem to have a thing for grumpy sleeping Eeveelutions, but really, who can blame me?

Belladonna grumpily posed for this addition to my Pokémon series, an Eeveelution looking spiky, grumpy, and generally adorable. Jolteon is an electric type, and while he’s showing his claws, the zap he could give you is probably the real threat. Unlike most of this commission series, this one’s not shiny, though I did make a shiny variation with the power of Photoshop.

Often the skies come first and then the foreground goes in to match, but this time the ruins grew up out of the ashes of avoidance, and the purple clouds came rolling in later.
Spiky, burnt-out buildings lean into one another, smudged with smoke and abandoned by everyone but the carrion birds.
More ruins for a world on fire, but hey, at least they’re pretty.
Above, you can see the most-intact tower and its circle of carrion birds up close and personal. Below, the bleak landscape sits in a frame, like a window to a ruined world.

A lovely, large panorama of sunset and birds and a windblown tree, this painting is a moment at the edge of night, just as the sun is slipping away below the horizon and off the page.
The clouds reflect the bloody light from below, refracting it into orange and pink as well as red. Five beautiful blackbirds ride the winds of evening, slipping past the tree that autumn’s already caught ahold of and stripped of its summer foliage.
A full foot and a half wide, this painting will need some special framing, but it would make a beautiful, warm addition to any room.
Above, an up-close view of the windswept tree and wispy clouds, as well as one of the five intrepid crows riding the breezes. Below, a very wide shot indeed to encompass this whole panorama.

Delicate smoke rises up from these ruins, buildings ranging from whole to merely rubble but all showing evidence of some cataclysm.
Each structure has its own unique character, from the delicately cracked tower to the leaning high-rise with its side shattered by whatever disaster came to call.
Painted with a limited palette of just three colors, the subtle mix of blue, rust, and grey make a gorgeous, atmospheric homage to ruination.
Above, you can see the tiny details of windows and doors, smoke and rubble and ruins. Below, the painting is floating in its temporary frame, waiting for its final resting place.
