Commission status: OPEN!

Hi, thanks for visiting! Check out my commissions and info above.You can call me Max or Lucky! (They/them) I'm an LGBTQ+ and neurodiverse self-employed artist from North Carolina.I primarily do digital art commissions, character and species designs, monthly Patreon stickers, and storywriting and worldbuilding.

PWYW/Secret Commissions

Hi hi! These commissions are open to friends and patrons who I'm comfortable doing sketches and experimental commissions for! These will often be messier and more freeform than my regular commissions, and quotes will vary depending on prompts, characters, etc.If you're interested, DM me on Twitter or Telegram @ Dracononite (or for friends, on Discord!)The options listed here aren't open to all commissioners so I'd appreciate if you don't link this anywhere!

PWYW: $45+ USD

A much more freeform commission type - anything from doodles to full color sketches or even painted pieces. Just tell me what you have in mind, or give me a budget and creative freedom!- Anywhere from a bust to a fullbody piece can be done. Sketchy, lineless, painted, limited palette, etc
- I can also do meme / reaction image drawovers for this (but no drawovers of selfies/photos)
- Up to two characters per piece!
- I'd prefer some creative freedom but always appreciate a bit of info about the character's personality / preferred expressions / environment. I might take the opportunity to experiment a bit with these!

MS Paint Doodle: $75 USD

These are fullbody doodles done in MS Paint! You'll be sent the sketch for approval.

☕️ Frequently Asked Questions ☕️

What tablet / art program / brushes do you use?

I use the Huion H610 Pro tablet and MediBang Paint Pro for my art program.As for brushes, I mostly use the default marker brush but for any painting, soft shading, and blending I use the wet watercolor and fluffy watercolor brushes.

How can I get a commission?

I always announce on my Twitter whenever I open slots. I also offer some extra patron-only commission options over on my Patreon, and sometimes I remember to announce slot openings on my commissions Telegram channel as well, but often forget to :')I take commissions regularly through email and Twitter DMs! I generally take slots on if I feel I can draw the character design well and enjoy the commission prompt, I rarely turn down slots.

Would you draw my ocs interacting with yours?

This one really depends. I think the only characters of mine I'd be okay with drawing interacting with commissioner's ocs are:-Maximilian, they run a coffee shop so could take your character's order or serve them up some coffee!
-Prisma, they're a mail delivery airplane dragon so they meet lots of people to deliver mail to!
-Lemonade, I'd honestly love to draw them interacting with Charmie designs!
I may be open to drawing more oc interactions in commissions for friends.

How long have you been drawing?

I've been drawing, creating characters, and worldbuilding ever since I can remember! I started taking commissions in high school around 2014, but didn't begin relying solely on income from commissions until 2017 when I started college.
Now, art is my full-time job and I work from home.

What do you love drawing?

Some species I have a lot of fun with are humans, Pokemon, angels, airplane dragons, dragons in general, African wild dogs, long-tailed primates...I enjoy working with warm or saturated colors and rainbows. Comfortable or cute domestic poses and dynamic action poses are both fun. I'm still getting used to working with perspective, foreshortening, scenes and character/environment interaction.Other things I like drawing: flora and mushrooms, food, clouds and skies, books, space and stars...

What do you not like to draw?

I personally have trouble with unconventional animal species like crustaceans, cephalopods, invertebrates, etc. BUT I'm willing to try to draw most of those! Insects are generally fine (I love dragonflies and mantises) but not realistic spiders, although fuzzy or cartoony anthro spiders are fine.Other than that, I'm not keen on drawing overly realistic characters or aliens / creatures with a lot of teeth / mouthy parts / face and body horror.I also have difficulty enjoying super pastel designs as I find it difficult to see and work with the colors.There may be exceptions but these are general no's.

What mediums do you work with?

I primarily work with digital illustration! But I greatly enjoy working with traditional mediums too. I keep personal sketchbooks, draw traditional art for friends sometimes, and also occasionally paint with acrylics. My favorite traditional mediums are pencil, pen/inks, and markers but I also use colored pencils, crayons, and mixed media / collages (stickers, washi tape, stamps, etc.) I love scrapbooking.I don't often share much traditional art outside of my Patreon and Ko-fi memberships!

Would you draw fanart for commissions?

It definitely depends on what fanart you're wanting! I always love drawing Pokemon fanart - especially Mystery Dungeon or anything Johto or Sinnoh since those are my favorite generations / aesthetics.Other media I'd probably be okay drawing commissions for are Digimon (only the monsters, I know nothing of the human characters,) Minecraft, Flight Rising, Animal Crossing, Mob Psycho 100, The Adventure Zone (Balance or Amnesty,) and maybe Death Note if you bribe me enough lol.

How much creative freedom do you prefer for commissions?

I prefer a good bit of freedom! I don't want the entire pose or composition of a commission written out in a paragraph for me to follow to a T. I like being given a general idea, theme, pose, or at least some short idea of what the character's personality is like or what they enjoy - that gives me ideas of motifs or poses for what to do. The one part of a commission I do prefer more direction on is the outfits for the characters! I'm not well versed in designing clothes so prefer some visual aid or choices for outfits.

Are you a self-taught artist? Have you gone to school for art?

I'm mostly self-taught when it comes to illustration, and did a lot of extracurriculars including art clubs and competitions in K-12. I took college courses for web design, graphic design, marketing and art fundamentals, and graduated in 2019 with an associate's in advertising and graphic design.While I do have knowledge of graphic design, printwork and vector programs, my focus is illustration and I don't see myself doing more than logowork, website design and sticker / print designs for graphic design - and mostly just for myself.

What is too complicated for you in a character design?

For me, a design that's too complicated uses 10+ colors or colors that are very similar to each other, has gradients, multiple sets of limbs, multiple faces, unconventional anatomy, armor/mech, etc. I can usually interpret or simplify designs like these into my style, but it takes a lot of work. It helps if I'm familiar with the subject matter or like the design.WarGreymon is a good example of the most complicated I'd draw while enacting a fee!
MetalGreymon would also get a fee for the mech though I'd admittedly have an easier time with it.

Can I get ___ file for a commission?

The file types that I can provide for a certain commission type are listed alongside the rest of the commission's info! For some commissions I work with a fixed canvas size and cannot provide any larger versions without loss of quality. If you need a commission to be a certain dimension, please bring it up to me while ordering the piece! For sketchy commission types, I work messily or with paintover rendering, and cannot provide transparent / character-only versions.I always provide commissioners with the unwatermarked and full resolution file of a commission that has a small and unobtrusive signature (I've only begun doing this in 2023 for personal pieces and commissions.) I also provide a smaller-resolution file that is usually watermarked with an overlayed dot tone, tiled text, and a larger signature of my username. This is the only version that I post online and you can use this to share or post on your galleries as well!

Owners of my designs may NOT create an open or closed species out of that design.
You cannot use traits of a one-off adoptable design or custom as a basis for an open or closed species.
I am not open to helping create open or closed species even as commissions.
If a design is originally a member of an open or closed species, you may not claim the species as your own.
You must follow the rules for that species regarding the design and usage of the character.
You may not use my original art of a character design for commercial purchases. You may use your own art or art that you've commissioned with a commercial use contract, either from myself or another artist.

Editing Designs

Tracing, editing, or claiming my artwork or designs as your own is strictly prohibited.
Do not claim any edited or redesigned versions of my designs as your own. Credit me for the edited or redesigned version as you would the original design.
Feel free to edit designs purchased from me in any way, however you may not trace or edit over my artwork to do so. If you wish for an adoptable to have small edits, feel free to ask - I am okay making edits to designs.Owners may turn my designs into members of a pre-existing open or closed species with permission of the species admins/mods and, preferably permission from me if there would be very large changes. You must follow rules for any open or closed species regarding redesigns.You may give a design purchased from me any gender, name, personality, etc that you want.
I do not endorse nor support LGBTQA+phobic, offensive or hateful characters being made from my designs. I do not endorse nor support my designs being used for immoral or illegal content.

Reselling & Trading

Please DO NOT resell a design of mine for more than you purchased it for, whether you bought it directly from me or another user, or received it in a trade. The value of a design bought from me excludes sales tax and tips.You may add monetary value only equal to the worth of additional art that has specifically been created or commissioned by you as the current owner of the design.*I recognize that art has monetary value! However, any art that is received by the owner of the design as a gift or trade should not add monetary value to the design, as you are then profiting off of others' work.You may trade or gift any of my designs at your own discretion.
You must include all versions of a design when selling or trading, including original, edited, alternate color palettes, forms, etc. You forfeit all rights and versions of the design when selling or trading.
You MAY purchase a design from me with the intention of making a plush or suit out of it and reselling, provided you give credit to me for the original design as stated above.(If you do ever make products or merch of designs purchased from me, feel free to share! I'd love to see.)
