I have now been working for Kern here at DTs since Dec 2008. I'm still loving it, between the work, the stories, and the quality of art I get to surround myself with, this is a wonderful job. :3
I still look at myself as having a support role where I can take some of the burden off of the other artists to fill the Extras Archive and assist in other DTs when and where I am asked.

COMISSIONS
Personal commissions are now available from me here. Though I would suggest you first put your money towards DTs with a subscription or one of our posters, books, etc. Also, you can submit a request for me through Kern if you would like, or for some reason, may have trouble getting a hold of me.

Price Guide here: http://masterokiakai.blogspot.com/2008/ ... guide.html

Current Slots (All open)

Requests for short notice deadlines will not be accepted. Time and priorities will alsways go to my work for Daydream first.
Buyers must be patient when this is going on. Buyers must be readily available to discuss their piece and clarify any questions that may arise.
There are no particular rules for what you can ask for, but assume that it will be Drowtales or Drow related. Otherwise you can find me elsewhere.


PLEASE see recent post for updated information

*Post Replacement*

Image
Vloz'ress MOA

NAME: Oki Akai
RACE: Drowolath
AGE: 72yrs
JOB: Vloz Mercenary, Craftsman

WEAPONS: (A) Spiked/Clawed gauntlets for unarmed combat (B) A black and red curved short sword
ARMOR: Spider silk vestments, Light leather armor
EQUIPMENT: Vloz half-mask, Gem collar, Craft Kit, Journal (good quality), Vial Pouch (for collecting samples of materials)
MAGIC: Blood Sorcery (healing of self and others = minor), Minor illusions (small visuals only)
CITY of ORIGIN: Val'Raveran
CLAN: Vel'Vloz'ress

BACKGROUND:
Born and raised the son of a painter and a sculpter in the crossroads city of Val'Raveran.

He was taught to be a craftsman and artisan, learning the traditional arts from his parents, and hearing stories of great works of art and architecture across the underdark and from the surface. He learned about philosophy and psychology, as well as spatterings of mining and herbology, all to support his life as an artist.

His parents taught him to use simple mana tricks to help him visualise the images in his head in the real world by manipulating lights and shadows to create simple, small illusions. He discovered his affinity for blood sorcery at a young age while in a scuffle with some other children. He saw his reflection and saw that he was bleeding from his face. He willed his blood to "go back inside" and it obeyed.

His parents didn't approve of sending him to a fighting school, prefering instead he study to be a craftsman or mage or even a cleric. But he insisted on learn to defend himself to better protect himself from the dangers of the world. Being in a city with many different peoples and practices converged, he learned bits and pieces of different fighting styles from the warriors and wanderers who passed by. He had learned to be calm and observant with a light touch from his parents, so he grew to favor light and fast fighting techniques. He particularly liked styles that didn't rely on large weapons like swords or spears or things that could be dropped, lost or torn from his hand like daggers. He was taught as a child by brawlers and monks and fighters sparing with him out of fun to fight with his bare hands, and how to fight much larger and stronger enemies with patience and strategy.

When he grew into an adult, a city guard challenged him to a duel, seemingly at random. It turned out to be a trap set by the bored brute and Oki found himself ambushed, blinded and bound by a spell. The cruel guard took to beating him bloody in the street but he wouldn't bleed, and he wouldn't cry out. Finally, blinded and dazed, he caught his attacker in a wild swing. He proceeded to break the guard's arm and then his neck. He took from his body a shortsword of blackened metal. With that he left his home city, not out of fear for himself or his family, but because of the boredom and dissatisfaction he sensed in his life.

He wandered through the underdark until he crossed paths with a small group of Vloz'ress mercenaries. He had heard of the Vloz in terrible nightmarish stories when he was young, but seeing their brutish behaviour and broken and tattered armor, he was disappointed. The stories and images of the Vloz and their demons, monsters, snakes and berserkers had been some of his favorites as a child. He followed them until he eventually reached the Vloz'ress fortress. And there, his greatest and deadliest weakness was laid bare...

He joined the Vloz as a craftsman and smithy, designing their masks and repairing their armor and weapons.

DESCRIPTION:
Eye Color: Amber
Hair Color: Blood Red (dye)
Appearance: Average for a male drowolath, with an athletic body on a light frame
Clothes: Prefers black and red clothes of light materials and simple design. Is usually found wearing his Vloz mask.

PERSONALITY:
Normally calm and introverted. He laughs and cries from pain or pleasure with uncharacteristic energy. He speaks frankly and often curtly to most people, especially the other mercenaries. He has no fear of punishment or reprisal based on protocol or social norms, he does not feel embarrassment or shame, nor does he feel the need for social graces that would serve him better in drow society.
He feels pain like anyone else, but with his blood affinity, wounds and injuries have lost their threat for him. This has given him a false sense of security and detachment that has allowed him to walk into the Vloz Fortress without pause. He is a fool who doesn't realise the gravity of his situation, and is likely happier not knowing.
All this has allowed him to find a comfortable corner for himself in the insanity and madness that is the Vloz’ress.

Really now? Can you tell me more about that one? Or link me to the relevant info? I'd like to know what they tried to see what might help me here.

He has the commissions posted in his DA account. :)
Some of them are being used by P2P members as avatars and others are posted in the P2P art thread which is only accessible to members. Over in P2P most of the active members also use his art from the comics for their avatars.

You might want to start a thread on the new art forum, too.

Excellent, thank you kindly. Now I know that this is the guy who's work I've seen all over the place here.

The P2P art thread? That parts not ringing any bells at the moment though. I gotta go take a look at that here.

I think I'll wait and see how far I get here before starting any more new threads here, though I do agree with your suggestion.

Oh, well then I know exactly what you're talking about. And I have been noticing how many people have those images as their avis.
Guy does quite nicely with his painting.

PTp members send me an email when they want a character drawn and i pass it along to reza. Along with the payment added on top of his monthly payment. I don't think reza accept direct commission because he'd have no way to receive the payment beside for snail mail. All the money go to Reza, it's a nice bonus for having made a community happy through his efforts.
Blackmyst and donny also received commission at daydream. If i get a commission request for you through daydream, i'll let you know.
