Behold some of the best art on DA! My inspiration lies here.

Real Life to Anime Portraits!

Bishoujo's Anime Portrait by OtakuECKen's Anime Portrait by OtakuECTristan and Carla's Anime Portrait by OtakuECPowers and Carr Portrait by OtakuEC

Want to see what you look like as an anime character?

:star: Click here to view more samples of anime portraits

:star: These portraits are $10 for a black & white lineart or $30 full color per person or pet.* If you'd like to order a portrait, read on!

:bulletred: E-mail me at least one good photo of you, a loved one, or pet. The drawing will be based off the photograph, so the quality of the image does matter.

:bulletorange: All portraits are shoulder up in my own anime style. I will only do minor revisions upon request.

:bulletyellow: If you'd like, I can write the person or pet's first name in katakana somewhere on the image.

:bulletgreen: All portraits are digitally created. You will receive both low and high resolution files via e-mail that you can post online or print.

:bulletblue: Payment must be up-front, sent via PayPal to Portraits are finished between 1-7 days depending on the number of orders I have in queue. I can only work on art commissions Monday-Thursday. The earlier you send me your payment and photos, the sooner I can start your project. *When you pay via PayPal I will charge $5-10 extra to cover fees. If you wish to mitigate these fees, PayPal does have an option to send your payment to me as a 'Gift.'

:bulletpurple: E-mail me at to send me your photo(s), or send your link(s) to me via a DA note. Thank you! ^3^

Why do so many DA artists charge so little for commissions? 

8 deviants said I work very slow and it would cost my clients way too much if they paid me for every single hour.
6 deviants said I don't have confidence in my artistic skills and I am afraid to charge more.
6 deviants said Everyone else on DA charges really low, so how can I compete if I charge more?
5 deviants said I honestly do not know what my work is worth or have any clue what I should be charging.
5 deviants said Art is just a fun hobby and I don't need to make a lot of money, I just like having a little something.
5 deviants said I fear no one will commission me if I raise my prices.
3 deviants said I work extrememly fast and I am getting what my work is worth in time and effort, even if it seems low.
2 deviants said I don't think my prices are low. $25 for a full-color character design is a LOT of money O__O $$$
1 deviant said I don't know how to market myself and gain clients, so I hope low prices will be enough to lure them in.
No deviants said Clients pressure me to lower my prices, so I try to please them in hopes they will commission me more often.
