Hey everyone, Contact fans in particular.

I'm not directly involved in this, but for those of you who have been waiting and asking over the years to be able to buy an English edition of the Contact RPG rule book (that I made all the pretty art for), now is your chance to possibly grab it.
Uhrwerk Verlag is running a kickstarter to fund a first print run. Currently it's struggling a bit, so it needs your help if this is a game you've been interested in (Think X-COM on the tabletop).

Here's a link to the KS page:…

Go check it out!
Hello DA!
While I have technically been open to doing commissions for the last year, it has been with limited time so I've been more selective and delayed. Now, however, I'm gearing up for full pace commissions again, back to the old days :D
For those wondering where I've been the last few years, I've been on a long chain of large projects, between my own book (on hold, not forgotten), miniatures, Battletech, and a few video game projects. I'm itching for a break from big projects now, so it's time for a stint of small stuff.
With that in mind, I'm going to be very weary of any large requests, but everyone is free to inquire regardless of what they have in mind, I'll let you know what I think.

If you have been discussing commissions with me previously and fear I've forgotten about you, please send me another note to get things revived.

Work examples and prices are listed below. The shown tiers/levels are simply easy to understand steps in what quality you can expect by price. Ultimately I work by an hourly rate, so more specific budgets can be discussed.

Sketches. Ranging from loose sketch to shaded and somewhat cleaned up.
-Quick Sketch $35-105
Awesomann Mech by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Iron Element by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Soldier Classes by Shimmering-Sword
Quick painting. Good for loose color character or vehicle designs with simple/no background, and minimal revisions.
Alternatively I can do clean shaded sketch designs.
-Quick Painting / Clean Sketch $140
Commission - Ion Armor by Shimmering-Sword WinterMoth Soldier by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Klingon Tank Destroyer by Shimmering-Sword
Small Painting. Has clean painted work with time for revisions. Can support light/moderate background detail.
-Paint $280
Commission - Last Stand by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Mad Cat by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Galkgrost SpecOps by Shimmering-Sword
Extended Painting Commission. Options for high detail, full environments, and ample revision time.
-Paint $420 and up (will quote based on request)
Battletech - Heavy Air by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Human Resistance by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Star Wars B-wing by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Draconis Combine Sunder by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Homeworld Clandestine by Shimmering-Sword

Please note me if you are interested.
This commission structure is not rigid, alternate processes can be discussed if needed.

Prices are in USD$
Payment by paypal only. 50% or full (preferred) paid in advance.

 With your permission, I'd like to use your Federation tank design in a Star Wars/Trek fan fiction I'm working on, using their description, and using a link to your image for reference to readers. I might also use your Klingon tank as well, though I don't know if I'll actually the story will include Klingons on ground warfare as of yet.

I would like to thank you for ever so kindly giving me a llama.
(I really love your art, by the way, which you could probably tell from me favoriting quite a handful of your art. They have lovely detail, color schemes, and neat aspects to them.)
