sketchcover commission sale

[listening to "n.e. heartbreak" by new edition]

blank sketch covers available

as i was tidying up last night, i found this batch of blank sketchcovers with no homes to go to. sooo i've decided to do a COMMISSION SALE!
normally, i only do sketchcovers at comic cons and my color commissions start at $150 for full body. but it wouldn't be a sale if it wasn't a significant amount off so $50 off! here are the details:
  1. choose from the covers i have pictured above (3 SPIDER-GWEN #1, 2 STAR WARS #1, & 1 DARTH VADER #1)
  2. choose which character you'd like to have drawn (it doesn't have to be from the same universe as that of the cover - if U don't mind, i don't mind.)
  3. it's $100 per cover, full-color single character only, plus $7 to ship anywhere in the U.S. (additional characters and international shipping is doable, but will be an extra charge)
  4. send me an email to PENELOPE @ IDENTITYCOMICS . COM and let me know what you're looking for or if you have any other questions.
  5. get your commission in 2-3 weeks in the mail! if you want to save on shipping, you can pick it up from me at a comic con that i'll be attending (commission must be prepaid though)
  6. sale is only available on these sketchcovers until i run out of em.
here are some samples of commissions i've done recently. i mostly use copic markers and colored pencils, but sometimes i'll take some watercolor for some background splashes. hit me up if you're interested!!

Valentine 2017

[listening to "sometimes" by ariana grande]
Valentine 2017

thought i'd pause what i'm working on for a quick Valentine's Day doodle. ok, so i missed the day a little, but it's whatevs.
since i've been a part of the Girls Drawin Girls group, i've drawn this sassy pink-haired gal, aptly named Valentine, for the weekly theme this time of the year. so i figured i'd draw her again. her previous iterations are below.
this one only took me a total of 1 hr and 45 mins so i think i've gotten this style down as well as i can. probably means it's time for a shift in style. but i'm not ready yet. my Patreon supporters get to download the high-res file. if you're interested, click the bright orange button on the top right of the page OR head to patreon.com/pengpengart.

kickstarter commissions

[listening to "breathe" by telepopmusik]

 

at this time, everyone that pledged for a commission tier from me for our The Blueprint 2 kickstarter should have received them. i was overcome with gratefulness (i think there's probably a word for that but it escapes me) at the amount of support we got for our kickstarter, especially from friends and family members. so i wanted to make sure these commissions got as much love as i could put into them. every single person who pledged for one of my commissions are very important to me and i didn't want it to go unnoticed. all of these were done traditionally with a mix of copic markers, brushpens, colored pencils, watercolors, and gouache.

thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart to those that supported the kickstarter. the book turned out amazing, it's the best quality we have ever been able to accomplish with printing, and the pins and stickers and prints are all candy!

thank you obama

[listening to "freedom" by beyonce' ft. kendrick lamar]

today was a challenge for lots of Americans. but art has always been and will continue to be the way i express many of my emotions. so i wanted to make a little love letter to the Obamas.

now i'm not here to beef, i'm here to spread art & positivity. and i encourage you to do the same. for a lot of us, Obama has helped our lives in many ways, the biggest for me & my family would be with healthcare. it's something we were finally able to have, thanks to him and his administration. insurance was difficult to get for freelance artists like us, especially for those with preexisting conditions. and though it wasn't perfect, it was the best step forward. in essence, it saved my husband's life. for that, i will be immeasurably grateful.
 
when i saw the picture of them posted on twitter yesterday by Michelle Obama, i felt a mixed bag of emotions ranging from love and pride all the way to sadness and fear. this is my only political piece of artwork and i can't think of a better couple to draw inspiration from. 

this was drawn completely digital, from concept to finish. took only an hour and a half. which is fast, for me. i guess when i have a clear vision in my head, it comes out faster. my Patreon supporters get to download the high-res file of this. i don't plan on making this into a print, except maybe just for myself. i just don't think comic con attendees would want to purchase it. but if enough people as for it, then MAYBE!

lucy turnarounds

[listening to "earned it" by the weeknd]


doing some work for our "The Blueprint 2" kickstarter rewards - namely i'm putting in orders for our kickstarter-exclusive prints. since our books have finally come in, it's been back to full-throttle kickstarter work. there's something extremely satisfying about doing work for something that you've created. so, in my excitement to be doing stuff for our own stories, here's the turnaround sheet for my character Lucy Sniz for my story LITTLE DEVIL! this turnaround art was finished after "The Blueprint 2" book was finished so it's not included in there. it IS, however, included in my latest mini artbook "Daydreams Book 3" (you can snag your copy on my etsy at https://www.etsy.com/shop/pengpengart).
we'll be doing a packing party soon to get these books ready to go to their homes. look at em, there's so much!
