You did the couple pic of the lady with curly hair and the guy with the sword for me.

Unfortunately, the male character I got with her was my now ex husbands, so it's kind of hard to use that picture. I'm assuming she killed him in that world. That's a good kind of closure right? That was actually my favorite picture of her too, and it's nigh impossible to edit him out. I still use the face for refs though I just wanted to let you know the picture is still very very much appreciated.

Any-who, I'm glad I caught this, I'd love to grab one of these two ideas from you

Pretty much, there are two pictures I'd love to get from you and I can't choose. So, you get to choose!
You get to pick between older siblings (22 and 24) or younger siblings (both 20). Since, unfortunately, all my favorite characters come in twos. One day, when I have surplus income, I'll commission you for a family portrait of these four. Till then though, here are the groups~


Krisha's info is here, the only difference between her and her twin lies in hair style and build. Kira's a bit more lithe and slightly less busty.
Young ref:

Older ref {Artist made it a little more provocative than it would be}

Kira's outfit is simple. Always something like that, but I'd love to see her in mid thigh shorts with her mid calf high combat boots, with or without her scarf.

Headshot Ref:

Krisha Hairstyle option #2
Her bun, instead of being down, if you'd like

In blue with the corset in black or dark grey. Shorter in length, to right above knees. Play with the dress design as much as you want, like adding a waist belt or turning the corset into a waist cincher and playing with the top. The more ornate the better! She'd be wearing 4' high wedge heels with ballet straps. She could be sitting, with her legs crossed and Kira leaning up against the chair, or ust enjoying a day outside. Either they could just be talking to one another, or Kira could be playing with Krisha's hair, weaving flowers into it while Krisha read.


The picture you did for me before? That chick, shorter hair down like this
In this outfit

She'd be wearing a small pearl pendant, instead of the key or locket.

With her older brother, this guy.
All the info you could ever need is in there.
The only pic I have of them is in the full on fantasy gear one, and he's stitching a cut. Here it is to show their dynamic, but I'd love to see them when they're not about to die.

Sitting under a large tree, her drawing, him playing the violin. Has to be in the shade though, due to his agrophobia. One day I'll get a picture of all four outside, but sibling love is great in any portion <3

Please let me know which one you pick, thank you so much for doing this again this year!

Made an account just for this!

I was wondering if I could get these two sparring. Well, more of Destiny trying to teach and/or hit Sada, who's finding that she really just wants to dodge. Sada is her fiances cousin, and has no idea how to really fight beyond avoiding. Destiny wouldn't be getting flustered though, because she's faster than Sada and known for dancing around enemies, so not only can she avoid just as well, she can throw hits with their practice swords while doing it.

In this case, the two would be wearing 'battle dress' type outfits. Silk tunic, breast plate to their ribs over it you can design, and light plate leg and arm armor, form fit with chainmail where skin would be showing. Plate boots


White/silver hair. Grey eyes, pale skin
lithe, dainty.
Had long hair, got it chopped off by below girl. Tried to make it work
Has on lightly padded armor, feel free to design. Book worm pulled out of the library and onto the field. Naive of what actually goes on on the battle field


Amazonian, 5'10. Wiry muscles, not bulky.
Tan-ish skin, emerald eyes. Strawberry blond hair, silver circlet. Pulled back in ponytail, reaches mid back. In bun when fighting, reaches shoulder blades then. Heavier armor pieces, used to taking hits while moving. Confident in her movement, born knowing she'd have to fight one day. Jaded, slightly world weary.

I want one! Please please pleeeaaase!

I'd love a sketch of my OC pirate character Emry and his wife Captain Rat, a friend's character.

Em's 6', hair long enough to be tied into a ponytail, and is built fairly strong. His clothing are the simple sailor type.

Rat's 5'6, bald (edit: wears a bandana that covers the top of her head AND her whole forehead),wears a big shirt with a low neckling that shows the top of the wrap she wears underneath, breeches and riding boots, has darker skin and is tattooed all over as in this image (the only one I have of them):


They both have a matching ear cuff in their right ears.

(edit: did a quick reference searchto help out more. Em would look like this guy without the beard https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcScHBuSVtMLVXW39Ph4mCTE_fQgXBkfJHB4n5HchsBXMwpCM6TYwQ
And Rat would look somewhat like her http://www.bollywoodwizard.com/1024x768/tara_sharma_002_1024x768_lzhd.jpg)

I don't know if I'm late or not, but I just wanted to throw this in there.

A re-draw for a panel from "Sailor Moon" of Sailor Saturn dropping her Silence Glaive. It would be cool to see in your style! (Also to see someone draw it anatomically correct in some way would be awesome - poor Hotaru has some hand fails and some wtf anatomy going on, plus bone feet).

Huh. I thought Aja's birthday was tomorrow? Have I been mistaken all these years?

In any event, Happy (Early? On-Time?) Birthday!

**brings out a birthday cake**

I hope you have a great birthday this year! ....Um...whichever day it is.

Oh crap did I miss it?! I hope I didn't miss it, these things fill up so fast!

EDIT: OH DUH HAPPY BIRTHDAY AJA! I got so excited about the sketch requests that I forgot that they only happen when you have your birthday. XD I hope you have a great year and enjoy being however old you are now!

UMM WHAT DO I WANT let me think...I totally had a request idea in mind a while back and now I can't remember...OH! I know! Could you draw my character Geoff? He is this guy: http://riverfox237.deviantart.com/gallery/6888389#/d1pt0o8 It's an old picture so I'm not especially proud of it, but when one is in need of a reference...well, there you go. XD He's a Swordsman-in-training who accidentally gets himself stuck in a ridiculous-looking breastplate that looks like a green and yellow turtleshell with white wings on the back. The wings are actually supposed to be a little bit smaller than in this picture, and they move around in response to his emotions, so when he gets mad and stuff they flare out. It's very embarrassing for him, and now he and his friends travel the land trying to find the magician who originally made the thing so they can find out what the stupid magic word is that makes it come off. So...if you want to draw him in a particularly silly/embarrassing situation involving him getting laughed at, that is totally acceptable. He also has a delightful tendency to blush bright cherry red. But he IS a good Swordsman.

OKAY PHEW I GOT IT IN I hope. Can't wait to see this years' sketches! =D Thanks for doing this, Aja!

Indeed, it's on the 16th. Just figured I'd open the request topic on the day before.

Thank you for all the birthday wishes! Less Than Three

Oh, am I not too late? If so I would love to see an amusing situation involving Adelbart de Poncerton and He Who Shall Not Be Named... coughGauthcough.
EDIT: I realize now that this was already done! So perhaps him harassing-I mean, visiting- Homeville?

Also, happy birthday! So many sketch challenges have gone by... you must be getting old. Cheese!

Seriously, though. This has been one of my favorite comics. I've loved seeing your style change over the years. So I give you many thanks.

Oh, man! Is it really that time again? Fantastic!! Happy birthday, Aja, m'dear! Whoo!

Let's see...in honor of it being all your fault that I started reading all of Discworld...

Sir Samuel Vimes:
Getting up to no good with Sarge? (meaning your Sarge...here...from True Magic. Not some other Sarge. Yours. *digs for his new name* Sergeant Lockwood! :V Derp.)
Harrassing Vetinari?
Fighting a giant, deadly chinchilla-budgie?

You decide! Avast!

If I'm not too late to sign up, I'd like to see your take on some of the lesser known creepy crawlies from Lovecraft's mythos. Cause I love the Cthulhu that you did last year (it's been a year already? damn...). Also, it's cool to see what you do when you break out of your comfort zone.
Not that what you do in the comfort zone isn't cool. Don't mean that at all.
I think I'm going to stop typing before I make myself sound like an even bigger fool.

Alternatively, I've been reading through the Dresden Files again, and I'd love to see your take on the Winter Fae queens.
Mother Winter, Mab and Maeve. If I'm in time to sign up, and you haven't read the Dresden Files, I'll pull out descriptions for you.

If I am too late, guess I'll kick myself for being forgetful and wish you a happy birthday none the less.

Final thought, this hit me just before I fell asleep but it made me chuckle.
Last year, you drew Cthulhu menacing a poor little rubber ducky. This year, flip the script and draw an adorable Cthulhu (Cutethulhu?) being menaced by a terrifying rubber duck monster.
