Kelira by Araless
Traditional colored sketch commission of rat-lady Kelira for GuiltyOne

Very unique and interesting character. 
Sorry for the long absence. Work is keeping me busy but I'm always trying to work on art when I have some time left. My next updates will contain more commissions. So stay charged everyone! ;)

Costum Design for :icondragon-lady-nfld:

A very fiery fellow this time!
I wasn't able to submit anything within the last days because I have no internet connection at home recently and I couldn't check any messages either. Big sorry to those who tried to contact me. 
I'm still working on all other commissions. Unfortunately I haven't much time this week since I have to take a lot extra hours at work.
So I'll continue working on commissions this weekend instead.

Valkyrerjar Adopt - Freyr by Araless
Valkyrerjar Adopt - Freyr
Design trade with :iconblackchaos666:
I absolutely love this character! If it was not an adoptable I would have kept him for sure!
Was much fun working on this.

Also, this is the final design of my Valkyrie dragons now. No more feathers (except for the brooch behind their necks) but lots of fins and frills instead. They are still not an open breed but possibly will become in the future.

Species: Valkyrerjar (Valkyrie Dragon) 
Gender: Herm (male article preferred)
Birthstone: Peridot
Element: Light and Earth
Size: Medium
Eyes: Yellow/Green

Got one of these lovely birdie's in return:

Free At Last by Araless
Free At Last
Something I desperately wanted to finish before starting my commission queue. I'm glad I was able to submit something personal, since my recent submissions all belong to other people and I couldn't find the time to work on my own characters. It's been awhile since I last drew something so detailed. It's also the last picture of Tiamat in her older form. (Yes, I changed her again!) But don't worry, I won't change too much. Just getting rid of all of her feathers. ALL feathers. I grew tired of this concept and she was never supposed to have feathers to begin with. Back then I wasn't able to draw her old wings right, that's when I decided to use feathers instead. Now I found something that suits her better.

I'll edit this tomorrow. It's terribly late right now and I probably wrote a lot of bullshit in my recent condition. XD
Also... I need a new wrist.

Last but not least a super big THANK YOU to Felina-Colibra who was helping me and cheering me up all the time while I was working on this. There were several moments I almost lost my nerves and had the greatest desire to throw my graphic tablet right out of the window!

And thanks to everyone who supported me over the last time. I never thought people here would miss me so much! I'm glad to be back!! Love you guys.

Yours truly,
Commissions are currently closed,  thank you! I' ve (gladly) found a new full time job and my recent to-do-list is pretty big. I'll finish my last commissions and take a little break after that ;)

To tag a quality deviant: And you’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to the deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Glomp!

Your Valkyrerjar are amazing <333
How does one go about getting a custom? uvu~~
Araless Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
Hi there! Sorry for my late reply! I've been very inactive for a while.

To answer your question: For now, custom Valkyrie adopts can only be obtained through buying. But I will probably make them an open species one day. I need to finish their reference sheet with all important informations for this breed first. 
iMonox Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Ahhh okay okay!

How much would a custom be if I bought one ?

I hope beauty chases you while you chase it, and that wonder and majesty leave your quest for glory very successful.  
I hope you find many fun things to do, many wonderful sights to see, and many extraordinary people with whom to interact in positive ways.  
May the unexpected always turn out to be good.  
I hope this year is one of successful efforts to improve, new friendships made, old friendships renewed, and may you and those you love have a wonderful ride together around the sun in the year beginning with this day - HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW 2015 YEAR! by Dark-Arctic-Fox
