I've never written a critique before, so I hope this is ok. I think it looks really good overall! I can tell you put a lot of work into...

*NEW* Commissions Post

Hello all!! What with winter break fast approaching, I decided to revamp my commissions a bit.

  • All prices are per character and in USD
  • I’m pretty willing to draw most things, so if you aren’t sure feel free to ask!
  • If you want something not mentioned here, I’m willing to negotiate!
  • Payment is via paypal invoice, and I begin working upon payment
  • Base price does not include paypal fees!
  • For the time being I am opening up six (6) slots!! I will keep this post updated with regard to my queue, and will open up slots once I finish each batch.
  • QUEUE: 5 slots left

Please send me a note or e-mail me ( if interested! Thank you for reading! ^_^

Your art style is amazing! It's like a warm, fuzzy blanket of nostalgia!! :heart: What are your main inspirations?
SmashingMelons Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
aww thank you so much! that makes me really happy to hear... that reminds me, i should make one of those inspiration map memes sometime! i really like vintage illustrators like harry beckhoff, gluyas williams, and jessie wilcox smith, manga artists like osamu tezuka, some artists on tumblr (like and and my friends! and russian animation like nu pogodi of course.

You're welcome!!! C: And also thank you for answering this!!!
If you get the chance, I'd love to see your inspiration map.
A wonderful selection!! I can see how Beckhoff influenced your colors! :star:
Smith is such a staple in American illustration, like, seeing some of his stuff reminded me of some prints I'd see in people's houses or in books.
And I am such a sucker for Stevie Bo and Maddie!! They've got gorgeous styles.
I tried to watch an ep of Nu Pogodi, I skipped around a bit but the animation is so gooooood!!
You really captured the charming and nostalgic qualities about all of these artists, that's for sure.
SmashingMelons Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
of course! i love to talk about my art and influences hehe... people often tell me my work seems nostalgic or retro, which makes me glad! looking at my own art i sometimes feel like it's hard for me to really pinpoint any kind of style or vibe or anything, because i see it so much.. i can't see the forest though the trees, i guess. so i really appreciate that kind of feedback!
