The various contents of my mind... here for you to rifle through. Critiques and feedback would be appreciated on newer works.
It'd be great if you'd stop favoriting old works. I don't need the notifications on 8 year old pieces thanks.

I'll be aiming to keep these first come, first serve. Let's see how that works out. (I have no idea on the demand for these, this is a test run and I'll learn from mistakes while I'm here.)

To claim a slot: Comment on this journal! Once your claim is made, I will note you, at which point you'll send me your custom concepts. If you don't have any ideas yet for your custom design, don't worry! (Though to expedite things, I'd prefer design concepts be shared within a week of claiming a slot, so I can move on with the queue.) Once your concept has been approved, I will quote you the price and ask that a down payment of $50 minimum be made to secure your slot. Remaining payments must be made after approval of concept and color sketches I submit to you, and before I start the final art. Payments will be made via Paypal Invoices. See "Custom Pricing Details" below for pricing.

Before you place your order, know that these Aequis customs take months to produce. Average turn around time is 1-3 months, depending on position in queue. If you do not feel comfortable waiting this long, please do not order! I will submit designs to you for feedback at three stages: initial concept, color concept, and sheet layout. Buyer will receive original artwork, as well as a scanned file of the art.

Aequis type guide (masterpost) here!

Custom Design Status:
Open for 4 slots!

Custom Pricing Details:

As of July 2016, all Aequis designs start at $100 USD. This base price includes all Aequis non-hybrid types (ie. grasslander, islander, mountain, etc.) with on-type coloration, etc.

For hybrid types: Three pricing tiers.

Common hybrids: Perching x perching, ground x ground, habitats overlapping: +$10 (ex: Mountain x Arctic, temperate islander x southern islander, Grasslander x desert)

Uncommon hybrids: Perching x ground, as long as habitats overlap. Potential deliberate breeding: +$20 (ex: temperate arboreal x Mountain, tropical terrestrial x tropical arboreal)

Rare/Semi-domestic hybrids: perching x ground, habitats incompatible. +$30 (ex: tropical arboreal x desert, wetlands x mountain, etc.)

Examples of Aequis hybrid tiers can be found here: pallanophblargh.tumblr.com/pos… Eventually I should have a chart for these!

Uncommon traits for all types: Albinism, hypermelanism, piebaldism/leucism, asymmetrical markings. +$5-15 depending on rarity.

After these four slots are filled, base prices for customs will be raised to $120 USD to better compensate me for hours spent on them.

Working on comprehensive type guide/accepted color/pattern guidelines when time allows. In the meantime, feel free to note/email me your questions and suggestions! Email is april.illustrator@gmail.com. All payments to be made via PayPal Invoice. No points, trades, etc. will be accepted unless I offer.

That said, if there are any suggestions you have for Aequis, feel free to voice it in the comments!

I'll be opening 4 slots for custom Aequis designs in a journal within the next 48 hours. If you're interested, stay tuned for more information!
Blueberry Kirin
Since I can tell you're fed up with birds (haha yeah, I can tell) I figured I'd toss you an island in the shape of this fruit kirin before going RIGHT BACK INTO BIRDS. Without apology, of course. I'll die before I apologize for the birds! 

Claimed! I'll have to be offering these as commissions later this year. Stay tuned!

Caran d'Ache Pablo and Supracolor colored pencils on Strathmore toned grey paper. Approx. 9 x 7" (22.86 x 17.78 cm)

Thinkin' 'bout doing a blood orange next, or perhaps a black raspberry... who knows?

Regal
Graphite portrait of the desert type Aequis, in all their glory. They may look haughty and aloof, but they're pretty good natured and calm, as Aequis go. I'm not ashamed to admit I have a soft spot for this type, haha.
