Commission of CanisAries: Arph

Paid: $20 USD + $8 USD tip
Commission: A flat colour, full body redesign of the character Arph from my animated series Nyah Has an Adventure
Date of payment: August 19, 2018

Context:

CanisAries / Wolframclaws / Blanisquid / lovecraftisafurry / @Depresstopus is an awesome artist from Finland. Mostly known for her artworks and fanfiction in the Twitch Plays Pokémon community, she started to test the waters of the world of accepting commissions in 2018, much to my and everyone else’s delight. The first commission I have asked of her is a redesign of one of the main characters to my Nyah franchise.

Result:

After the Australian Shepherd-like fur markings of the new Arph were sorted out, and the basic shape of the character was defined, payment was made after a rough sketch was produced of the finalised artwork, which is shown below.

Now all that’s left to do is figure out how to retroactively un-canonize Arph’s old design… Oh, well. Introducing the new and improved Arph!
