Comic Style Art
Commissions are available for character artwork in my comic style with a simple background. This style is lineart based, with a colour fill plus shading (optional).

Military, historical and fantasy are my strong points. For best results please provide a detailed description or reference picture.

I am not a professional artist but my prices are realistic for the time and effort put into a piece. If you want something a bit more tailor made, or would prefer dealing in Pay-Pal rather than DeviantArt then please don't hesitate to send me a note instead. In theory I can also offer work in my painted style, though this would be considerably more expensive.

Hi all, in case you haven't seen any sort of notification yet, I've changed my username from XenonRay to Avrin-ART, or just Avrin for short!

I bit the bullet and got a 3 month subscription for the honour as the yearly core membership is poor value these days. And to be honest, with an adblocker you don't really need it. You can also get infinite scrolling by logging out. How's that supposed to work?

There's many reasons I felt like I needed a change - this isn't exactly a rebirth of my art or some other jazz, just more of a case of getting tired of an old, strange name. I joined in late 2006 and tended to go by the name of xenon on various other accounts and such. I liked chemistry and science at the time, and words beginning with X are cool right? Anyway that was already taken so I stuck Ray on the end. It never really meant anything and could not be said in real life without sounding awkward. But old habits die hard... :shrug:

Avrin comes from a character I once made for Skyrim, and has since become a name I use for other fantasy games if I want to create a character loosely based on myself. As always, some 10 year old extinct account has stolen that name, hence the -ART because...deviantART. I also saw some other people using that as a suffix to their name and it didn't look too bad. Never been a fan of sticking numbers at the end, so this will do instead!

Avrin-ART's Profile Picture

About Me:
Petroleum geologist and artistic dabbler from the north west of England and currently working in Wales.

I'm fascinated with historical military designs, particularly from about 1800-1920 and all the related themes that go with them. The Napoleonic and colonial eras up until WWI and the Interwar period are my favourite areas of inspiration. Aww who am I kidding, WW2 is also very interesting to read up on as well.

My drawn art is mix of dieselpunk military, real world history, characters from my fictional scenario, fantasy characters and fan art of whatever is on my mind at the time.

Besides that I design and build papercraft models using 3D data from games. I've worked on a whole bunch over the years from games on the N64, GC/Wii and PC. The templates are freely distributed in my gallery or over on my old blog. If you ever build any I'm always thrilled to see any pictures you might have! If you have any questions or need help, just ask through a comment or note!

Find me on Steam as Avrin. Message me first so I know who you are though.
