How Artistic liberty commissions work by LilleahWest
How Artistic liberty commissions work
All artistic liberty projects have to start some place, usually a gender, a species, a color and a personally.

For this one the starting criteria I was given was to use that particular teal fur, make a kirin, and make it look good with the coat.

With the ground work set in place I spoke of what we could do in terms of colors and design, I then took the photo she gave me of her in the coat and drew over it.

When I send artwork for an artistic liberty project it is always a basic plan, the whole point of artistic liberty is for the project to have the freedom to do what works best or just plain "feels" right in the end.... and in the end I made some changes from "the basic plan" (and found that green does not airbrush over this teal so well as I did want the stripes a bit more prominent but any darker and I get black)

Overall I MUCH prefer artistic liberty projects, A LOT of the stress of commission work actually comes from re-creating a set design, getting the shape and markings of a commission exact to a reference sheet is very stressful and time consuming compared to artistic liberty work, having the freedom to allow the creation to become what it wants to be as I work however is very blissful, even more blissful when it is fantasy work because then all the stress is eliminated as I do not even have to meet an an actual animal's shape (a kirin needs to be horse/deer like but not exactly shaped like a deer/horse)


I am pretty much always open for artistic liberty fantasy creatures, if interested email me at thebeastcub@gmail.com
At the moment I would really love to find someone to get a "Cosmic Stag" made with a navy blue based orange tipped fur and solid navy blue, it would have some white spots to symbolize stars and I overall want to go for a very imposing, handsome, stoic, ethereal look.

Sea Kirin by LilleahWest
Sea Kirin
Note: the tail is being worn a bit too high, oops.


This here is my new fave artistic liberty project, the only starting criteria I was given was to use that particular teal fur, make a kirin, and make it look good with the coat. Being a pirate coat I went aquatic and came up with this beauty who is 100% my own design :D


I am actually always open for work like this, that being artistic liberty fantasy projects where the customer is very open minded to leave the vast majority of the design to me. Just as with this person I would discuss the design and give a basic sketch plan along the way so the customer is not 100% in the dark. The customer here for example still got to approve the expression choice, just how dragon vs horse they wanted it, that they wanted whiskers, the fishy direction I took, etc etc.
If you are interested in an artistic liberty fantasy project, be it just a head or as elaborate as a quadsuit email me at thebeastcub@gmail.com.

Claws, hoofs and pawpads from DVC, the outfit was provided for me by the customer, the rest is 100% created by me :3


PS: HELP! I need more of this teal fur! The customer may get furry legs or a bodysuit at a future time and I do not have enough leftover for either! I bought this at E2Z Fabrics in the LA Fashion district, I am willing to pay the cost of the fur and shipping plus $10 to get 2-3 more yards of this fur.

I have the blessing of the creator of "Angel Dragons" :iconino89777: to take on a customer for an Angel Dragon quadsuit :D

Now first of all I have been friends with Ino for over half a decade now (as in stayed at my house for half a week personal) and I remember a time back before she had a suit of her personal Angel Dragon named Telephone, back before Angel Dragons were picked up as the next "species thing" within the fandom much in the way Sergals and Crux were.

Back before her fursuit I was first accustomed to Angel Dragons in their feral form. This quadsuit will represent their feral form, that being a fuzzy feathery dragon with the head and body proportions of a horse (but minus large feathered wings) ino89777.deviantart.com/art/Fo…

 While large wings would be more proper to the feral form this suit will have small wings, large wings are too much of a royal pain to make and wear.
The overall look will be semi toony, a touch more real than the Angel Dragon suits running around but not too realistic... hard to explain... like, my sister's unicorn quad is realistic in features but characterized and semi toony at the same time, so like that.
Speaking of which.
The body proportions will be akin to the unicorn quaduist made by me including the long neck with a collar to see out of lilleahwest.deviantart.com/art… so imagine that shape and level of realism for the angel dragon quadsuit.

While I would strongly prefer to take an artistic liberty customer so I can design the suit myself and use up furs I have in stock (with customer input on the colors and horns etc and I have A LOT of fur in stock lilleahwest.deviantart.com/art… ) I MIGHT be inclined to make a suit based off a pre-made design... might...

Chances are if I do take a pre-made design I may need to work with the customer a bit to tweak things to work best. Long fur is best utilized in some areas to hide connection points and not be wrinkly (long fur looks extra fluffy vs wrinkled when rumpled) and some markings may not work as would some larger horns.

The quadsuit will be at the very least $6,000 USD, more for jointed arm stilts, a hinged bobble jaw, paw pads, wiggle ears, extra horns, or overly complex fur patterning.

Since quadsuits do cost too much more in materials than a normal suit to make (with the majority of the cost going to how much harder they are to make) I am willing to take 20% as the non refundable down payment vs the usual 30%.

So that would be $1200 now with the rest paid later. The quote is good for 6 months after the first payment, if the suit is not paid in full by the end of that 6 months I am allowed to adjust the price at any time if need be. Overall I allow up to 2 years total to pay in full, after that we would have to discuss removal from the commission list.

I you are seriously interested in an Angel Dragon quad and can put in the first payment of $1200 please do email me at thebeastcub@gmail.com

Click download to see at full size so you can see all the little details.

This has been done since June but only now did I bother to get pics.

The head is all new, the rest is sill half a decade old but I lack time to fully update the costume.

Beastcub is a creature of my own design which I came up with when I was 12 as part of a novel I was writing (I am feeling old now, I am almost 29) she is the namesake of my business and the closest thing I have to a "fursona"

Everything here is 100% hand made by me except the resin antlers which I got from Clockwork Creatures years ago, I did modify the antlers for the 2.0 to go from whitetail deer to mule deer.

Cool pursuits you make. They look great. If I were to have a fursuit I would let it be a partial, partial pursuits are cool. Do you do partials?
