Photo: Another "Popped Out" Busted Head, this one for Tony Viscardi! These ones take a bit longer to do, because of the shading which is all marker... People don't believe me when I say that, but there are no pencils on this :) I faked his arm, so I hope it looks believeable =p Hee. Markers and Prismapens on 98 bright bond. Art © to S.G.M. Ratté.Photo: And so it begins! :D Here's the 1st of 5 of the Busting Heads Avatars! +Marc Jansen was the first to post, he's the first to get XD Hope you like it, Marc! I'll PM you the link to the Hi-Res version! :D

#BustingHeads #Illustration, #Art, #AvatarsPhoto: LOL. Totally have both done, I just want different posts so I get exposure on both XD

Watch out! I'm going around Busting Heads! This time around, I've done two of them for the wonderful +Terrence Lui! This first one is of himself... which I am very happy he likes :) I had a bit of troubles with the eyes, which I'm still not 100% happy with, but what do I know, I find flaws in EVERYTHING I draw. Heh.

#Art #Illustration #Commission #AvatarsPhoto: BOOM! Another Busted Head for +Terrence Lui , this one of his business partner, Eric. Terrence thinks it looks JUST like him, so that's always a good thing :) I think I added too much goatee, but whatever =p And I just realized now... This looks A LOT like another Busted Head in this gallery... OY. Totally coincidental, yo.

#Art #Illustration #Markers #AvatarsPhoto: +Dan Scott , YOU have been BUSTED! Here's a #BustedHead for Dan, this one, I think, being my favourite of this batch of 4. I COULD have just left his shirt solid red. But NOoooOOOOooooOOO, my perfectionism DEMANDED I do the plaid 'cause it was in the reference photo. Oy. BUT I'm happy with the end result. It looks brilliant. Huzzah for white gel pens that barely work D: Hee.

#BustingHeads #Art #Illustration #AvatarsPhoto: A re-upload of +Ray Toler 's Busted Head, 'cause his reference photo wasn't clear on the hair and beard line, so he asked I fix it up a bit... et voila! He's now got a beard :D Hee hee. I cheated on this a bit and did a bit of Photoshopping, but I can't tell, so that makes me happy. Heh.

Find out how to get your own Busted Head on Monday :D Laters, all :)

#BustingHeads, #Art, #Illustration, #AvatarsPhoto: YES! Another Busted Head, this one for +Mat Jackson! Just so y'all know, I LOVE DRAWING HAIR XD Hee hee. He has nice hair. Hope you like it Mat! :D Markers and Prismapens on printer bond. Art © to S.G.M.R.Photo: Another head busted by yours truely! This one is for +Tim Jones, who paid me more than the askign price, so I did a little extra work on his :) Hope you like it, Tim! Markers and Prismapens on 98 bright, 36 lb printer bond. Art © to SGMR.Photo: BOOM! Another #BustedHead popped out, this one for the awesome +Chris Queen! He wanted his pic of him with his with his camera, so I tried my hardest ^.^ I had the most trouble with this than any of my others, but I am happy with the end result. His hand and arm still bother me a bit, but I'm just nitpicky.

I really enjoy these Popped Out Busted Heads, and am offering TWO MORE at the AWESOME price of 15$ CAD before I raise it to 20 or 25 (haven't decided yet), first come, first served. I'm also still offering the regular cel-shaded Busted Heads at only 12$ CAD! For more info on commissioning me, just send a PM or an email to steph.ratte@gmail.com. Turnaround time is at LEAST 3 days, depending upon workload.

And of course a huge thanks to my friend +Joel Poirier for helping me out on recognition ^.^ He's doing commissions too, so be sure to check out his work!

#Art #Illustrations #Commissions #AvatarsPhoto: So, early in the summer I was commissioned by a nice gentleman named Nate Hashem, who found my art through G+er +Terrence Lui and wanted 10 #BustedHeads of his coworkers for his website, two of each person. So, I'm going to upload them 2 a day for the next few days, so YAY! New art XD

Here's the the first, this one of Aaron. This one is actually one of my fave drawings of the group of ten. :)

Nate owns http://www.adrenalads.net/about where you can find three of the ten pics I did for his about page :D YAY! :D Hee.

I WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR COMMISSIONS STARTING SEPTEMBER 15. Stay tuned for more info

#commission #illustration #markerart #profilepic #avatar  Photo: Pic two of ten for  Nate Hashem, of his coworker Aaron. The commissions for Nate will be uploaded 2 per day over the next week (there will be 5 days total... depends upon when I have the free moment to upload them), so yay, new art!

Here's the second pic of Aaron. TOTALLY faked his undershirt. Can you tell? Bah, I knew you couldn't XD Hee.

So if you missed yesterday, Nate commissioned me to draw ten #BustedHeads , 2 of each of his coworkers. Today's headshots are of the commissioner himself, Nate! I'm pleased with this one. Turned out really well.  He seemed happy with it :)

Second pic to be uploaded shortly =p

I uploaded the first two last night, so do check them out if you got a mo' :)

So if you missed yesterday, Nate commissioned me to draw ten #BustedHeads , 2 of each of his coworkers. Today's headshots are of the commissioner himself, Nate! This here is the second one... not as great as his first one, but the colouring is nicer on this one. YAY! :D

Check back tomorrow for the next couple of pics :D

I uploaded the first two last night, so do check them out if you got a mo' :)

#illustrations #markerart #bustingheadsPhoto: Hey all! Welcome to the middle of my #BustedHeads #commissions for Nate Hashem  of his coworkers for his website, www.adrenalads.net/. You can see 3 of the 10 commissions I did for him on the about page.

So if you missed the past couple days, Nate commissioned me to draw ten Busted Heads , 2 of each of his coworkers... He provided me with photos of exactly what he wanted, which made my job THAT much easier :D

Today are the pics of Matt. I'm actually quite please with this one... NOT 100% happy with the mega-chin, but aside from that, turned out well :D

Next pic will be uploaded momentarily.  I uploaded the first 4 pics over the course of the last couple nights, so do check them out if you got a mo' :)

Today are the pics of Matt. This one was an interesting one to draw. I really do like drawing close-ups, so this was a nice change. I got to do some finer details that I have rarely been doing for these :) Huzzah! Happy with this one :)

Check back tomorrow for the next two pics! :D

#illustrations #markerart #bustingheadsPhoto: So, instead of the Artist Feature tonight (because I totally haven't browsed for a new artist this week... =p), I'm going to continue on with the #BustedHead #commissions for Nate Hashem  of his coworkers for his website, www.adrenalads.net/ , where you can see 3 of the 10 commissions I did for him on the about page (six of them were uploaded over the past 3 days, so do check out my profile for them if you missed them).

Today's pics are of Jaclyn. The photo reference for this one was at an odd angle, so I'm not 100% happy with the face on this... I think the eyes look off. Feh. But they (Nate and Jaclyn) liked them, so Meh, alright then :p

Next pic will be uploaded momentarily.

Today's pics are of Jaclyn, this one being the second one (the first one was uploaded about 10 minutes ago... so keep scrolling down =p). Another one that I think turned out really weird. Her right eye looks all weird. And her mouth. But I guess I should stop being so nitpicky if the commissioner likes them. Meh.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the final two!! :D

#illustrations #markerart #bustingheadsPhoto: Here it is, all, the final two pics for my #BustedHead #commissions for Nate Hashem of his coworkers for his website, www.adrenalads.net/ ! You can see 3 of the 10 commissions I did for him on the about page (eight of them were uploaded over the past 4 days, so do check out my profile for them if you missed them).

The final two are of Munish, this one being the first one. I'm actually alright with this one... Except for his giraffe neck LOL. GAWD I'm so nitpicky.

Last one will be uploaded momentarily.

Last but not least, here's the second pic of Munish. I get a kick out of his "OH HAI!!" expression, hah. This one, I do like. Teeth are a bit scary, but MEH, all's well. :)
