Commission Info

I am now ready to advertise myself and begin drawing requests! *Cracks Knuckles* Alright lets do this!


Commissions are Open! by xchainlinkx

Current Requests : 1/ 5

Requests Finished: 1

Earned Money : $6.38 / $ 150

I aim towards a manga and anime style with my work with a little more originality. The reason for this commission is to help me grow as an artist to help me prepare professionally into making my own manga books. The drawings I offer will be cheap as possible since I am experimenting with my style and am trying to gain more experience.

My goal is to reach $150 through these commissions. With the money I will utilize towards purchasing a premium account here on DeviantArt as well as investing it in my longer-term projects. If I'm able to reach my goal I will open FREE Commissions for everything for a week! (Well most everything, will be some minor restrictions though.)

My limit of Commissions will be 5 at a time, and after I complete those 5 I will post another journal entry for another 5 requests to be opened.




  1. For payment, I prefer the 50/50 deal. You pay half for the request, then the rest after its done. I will of course show progress of the entire sketch to you by sending you an e-mail. If you ever decide to change your mind to upgrading to inked, digital colors, etc. then I'll gladly compromise, as long as you pay the remaining half of my payment for the commission listed in the prices. PayPal is recommended, however I do also accept dA points! I will send you a note with my e-mail if you give me a request.
  2. No Gore. Spilled blood, cuts, bullet wounds are accepted. Just don't ask me to draw guts leaking out of someone... :fear:
  3. Smut material is fine. However I will not post it on this page. ALSO it will cost an extra fee of $10 for anything smut related. Soft-core nudity is fine however and doesn't require this extra fee.
  4. I aim to get drawings done as soon as possible.Some projects may take only a week while others may take a month or even longer. I will keep you posted however.
  5. Animal creatures and Scenery is more than welcomed. However will only restrict them up to only Ink level since I don't have too much experience on it. Will limit to one request of each.
  6. If you're requesting fan art, it would help to point me out what show or manga I'm referencing. I know Bleach and Cowboy Bebop, but its possible you might ask me to draw something from a series I never heard of. If that's the case I'll just ask you to show me references for me to go on.

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 22, 2014, 6:15 PM
There's been some interesting developments over the last week I'm proudly able to exclaim. Let's go down the list with a little details.

First thing I have decided to increase my rates for commissions. I feel I have severely devalued my own works by making them so cheap. And it certainly hasn't increased my viewership or requests. Now my commissions go up to $30 for the highest quality I can produce. I'm still keeping my 30% discount deal, but have scrapped all the other mundane discounts. But instead of doing it monthly I will only be doing it...whenever I feel like it pretty much. 

Second, I have received a new commission! It's a Naruto Fanart piece which I'm in progress of. Here's a little preview of what it looks like so far. Still have a lot of editing and refinement to do, but I am fine with the composition so far, but I think I can adjust a few things before I go into more detailed work. It's of a banner for a tsu page which I will reveal for who once I complete this commission. Hope you enjoy it so far! (By the way, he got this deal before I changed to the new commission pricing.)

Third, I have made a promotional video for my artwork! Check it out and let me know what you think!

One more thing. I'm also taking part of the Hearthstone Drawing Contest! I'm making a crazy, fun gnome which you will all enjoy very much. Wish me luck! ($4000 would sound pretty fricken amazing right now.) Be sure to check the poll on my page of what you think would be better: Goblins, or Gnomes. 

Alrighty folks that's all I have for today. Have a great rest of the week and I'll check in later!

"Keep your head in the skies, but don't forget to watch your step below you."

Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Mike, but people call me Chain on the internet. I proclaim myself to be a mangaka, someone who draws manga and anime-style drawings. Mostly this has been an on-and-off thing for me, but now I am taking the steps to becoming professional. Each day I see myself improving in my skills, and it has been a rough ride for me with health problems and just pure apathy.

After a wonderful anime convention and having one of my drawings signed by the Nostalgia Critic, I'm passed all of the harsh mental obstacles and now am eager to draw draw and draw some more! I have two manga projects that I am working on. One is a one-shot, and the other is a long, epic series I have planned out for several years. My ultimate goal is to have an anime made that will inspire millions of viewers. That's realistic right..? :P

Anyways welcome to my page! I have commissions opened now and will be ready to put pencil to paper for anyone!

Goblins or Gnomes?
