Rainforest Smile by Nikki-vdp
Rainforest Smile
Clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) at Dortmund zoo. I just love these cats, they have the most gorgeous markings
Sorry about the weird colour, she was sitting under a heating lamp and I couldn't completely get rid of the colour. In fact, the original pictures are full on bright orangy yellow. I just thought the portraits were too nice not to post regardless. Hope you agree.
I want to practise my drawing a bit, so I'm opening two point commission slots in case anyone's interested.

Sea Green Bullet - F2U! Subject: animal characters only this time (fantasy,mythical, original species or realistic is all good, I'm just not feeling like doing any humans at the moment)
Sea Green Bullet - F2U! Price: 50 Points  (one character)
Sea Green Bullet - F2U! Price: extra character: 25 Points
Sea Green Bullet - F2U! You get: digitally coloured full body artwork with a not overly complicated background

Silent waters by Nikki-vdp

You have to provide me at least with:
Green Square Bullet clear character reference(s) and/or description of the character(s)
Green Square Bullet the pose(s) you want
Green Square Bullet the setting

Please do keep in mind that due to my job at the university, I can't tell you exactly when I'll be finished, but you can be certain that you will get a finished commission.

Nikki van de Pol
I was born in 1988 in Belgium and also still live there. I speak Dutch, English, French and a bit of German and thanks to my studies I am also proficient in Latin and have some knowledge of Ancient Greek. I love metal music, and you can frequently find me at concerts and festivals, but that doesn't mean I don't listen to other genres. Art-wise, I mainly focus on photography, with a preference for animal/macro/nature photography although I diligently serve as photographer for my bf's band Everglow as well. Recently, I've been venturing into photomanipulation too and it's my secret wish to be able to design a CD booklet one day. I also regularly make tribal tattoo designs of animals in my own unique style. Other drawings, both digital and traditional are uploaded more sporadically, since my job rarely allows me enough time. I occasionally dabble in writing as well. The art aside, my hobbies are skiing, tennis, dancing, hiking, reading, watching loads of movies and playing with my dog Luca. I currently work at KU Leuven as an FWO-fellow (PhD) in English diachronic linguistics.
