All my newest submissions!


I don't often do art trades. Half of the reason is because I feel like a terrible monster when I reject someone and the other half is because I don't really have a lot of love for my own artwork. I don't feel it's worthy of trading someone else for their art. However! My best friend has finally graduated as a PHG and is seriously deserving of some spoiling. Her favorite thing in the world is to get some artwork of her beloved characters from our RP and I would love to do just that. I draw our characters all the time so I wanted this to be something special! I am also kind of strapped for cash currently. My sister lost her job and has a surgery coming up that will take her off her feet for well over a month so I'm having to tighten my coin purse and dip into my savings.

I will be exceedingly picky however so please don't be offended if I say no. ;-; There's some styles that appeal more than others and some of our characters look better in some styles than others, it's really nothing against you or your art. I'm not sure if I'll get any offers but I thought I would try this route before saving up for commissions.

So here are some of the characters that I'd be looking to get art of. I would like to include at least two characters in the piece, but I don't mind negotiating for just one of hers in there. :3

 Zaid & Cae
These two are our favorite couple from the rp. They've been through hell together and  Cae was often the character we would pick on to help Dusty through some of the rougher patches of the last few years. (Character abuse! It makes you feel better!) Zaid is her idiot husband so they're practically inseparable. They recently became Ambronians (winged people) so we wouldn't mind if they were drawn in their prior incarnations to spare some sanity. They did spend most of their lives without the wings after all!
One minor thing to note that often gets missed- Zaid is shorter than Cae by a few inches. XD Cae's hair also goes from long to short off and on. She keeps it long now but she kept it short when she was younger. Zaid always looks like he got stuck in a whirlwind.

Sparrowhand & Maiara
These two are fairly recent additions. They're not romantically involved in any way but they're very close. Maiara has decided that Sparrowhand is a part of her pack (She's a werewolf) and Sparrowhand, being the patient fellow he is, just decided to roll with it. It's more of a sister/brother sort of situation.

Alastair & Troka (Formally "Troy")
Another pair of siblings/friends. Alastair and Troy were childhood companions and grew up as sworn brothers. Troy has recently become an Ambronian and changed his name to "Troka" to remove his old identity, but again to save on sanity I wouldn't mind if they were drawn prior to the transformation. XD It's been a while since they've been drawn but we still love them.

I wouldn't mind other characters. Cae/Will (her adopted son) or Troy/Ash (his mentor/"father figure" hopeful), Cae/Thalion (Sister/brother/close friends, knight/king relationship) but I didn't want to spam the journal. XD

In return...
I'll match the offered art in complexity, quantity of characters, etc. If it's a colored bust offered, I'll offer a colored bust in return. If a bg is done, I'll do a bg. If it's a sketch, I'll do a sketch! Even trade across the board. I also have a few styles to offer and different types of formats I can use, so browse through my gallery to get an idea of what I can do.

For critter-only artists?
I am also looking to get some trades of some pokemon oc's from  myself and :icondaffupanda:. Again, if you want to draw only animals I'll only draw animals in return. Pokemon technically count as animals so... >>; But this is kind of a side thing so I won't list out the oc's. You can browse my fanart folder for the pokemon oc's to get an idea of who I might ask for.

Note me if you are interested!
There's no deadline or rush. I work most of the week and do art during the afternoon into late night.  If you're an exceptionally amazing artist I may throw more at you than just a doodle (like a doodle + windwaker chibi or something of that nature) art. DX It would just mean a lot to me if I could give my DLF something truly unique and special for her graduation. This is the first tine in 5 years that we won't be able to see each other IRL and it's kind of hard. I want nothing more than to give her a big hug and take her out to eat horrible junk food but finances and complications came up. I figured this would be a way to spoil her and thank her for being the amazing person she is. It took years of heartache, headaches, and sacrifice for her to make it this far and a lot of her journey was represented in this rp. We've grown beside our characters and matured as the story has.

If you can't find time- pass this along?
I would appreciate it greatly! Thank you for reading. :3

Commissions & Trades I'm waiting on: 

Some of these are pretty recent but there are a few that are slowly gathering dust. I'm leaving them up as a reminder to myself (and hopefully the other artists involved). 

At this point...these sit here as "Buyer Bewares": 

:bulletblue: Two character full body lineart from :iconhoneyroastedferrets: - My end of the trade is complete as of September 14, 2009

:bulletblue: Five Chibis from :iconmalisjuju: - Paid on December 29,2012 | 1/5 received |

Latest ParaChiMar Artwork:


Seriously! How beautiful is this?! I cannot thank :iconsaimain: enough for giving Thalion some life this year. He's one of my oldest, most dear characters and she's captured him perfectly. Thank you so much! ;A; He's stunning!

Legacy of Para group on DA!

:iconbluekillerdonkey: and myself decided it's about time we start up a group for ParaChiMar: The Legacy of Para. For those interested this group is pretty much just a good place to dump all of our LoP artwork, trades, commissions, and fanart into. I've also made a small stamp collection to celebrate. Check us out. :3
