        Fine Art Prints:

My fine art prints are now available exclusively through my Etsy shop courtesy of Bellevue Fine Art. If you don't see the print you're looking for, let me know, and I'll make it available on Etsy. The quality of the papers, colour matching, and the attention to detail at BFA is *far superior* to what is currently offered through DeviantArt. Check out the BFA feature in Art Scene Seattle or the BFA website for more info.


Commissions are closed through August. Between my day job, my own art shows, and working Renaissance Faires on the weekends, I will have zero days off for the entire month. In years past I've found I am unfortunately unable to finish any commissions during that time. Thanks for your understanding and your patience.

You may still commission a drawing or a painting if you wish. Normally it takes 2 weeks for completion of watercolours and pencil portraits, but I will not be starting any new commissioned projects until after 24 August. For more info, please contact me directly via email: (I check it more frequently than DeviantArt). Check out my Etsy shop for details about custom portraits!

bcduncan's Profile Picture
Braden Duncan
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I am a portrait artist by trade, imperfect by choice, and a cog in the machine of human mythology by default. I draw my inspiration from the peculiar minutiae of the human form, symbolism and mythology, the empty spaces left by missing friends, and the intricate elegance created by the convergence of biological and mechanical elements.

Reminder about the sketch that has been due for the artbook!

Already submitted the final piece to your email a couple months ago. Please re-check your messages.

Oh I'm so sorry ;A; I keep writing the email and I never ended up sending it. I showed it to the founder and we decided that we'd like you to draw a piece specially for the artbook rather then give in an already finished work. Not that the piece wasn't amazing but..
yeah I'm sorry
Oh gee I'm really sorry I haven't replied..

I wish you'd let me know a while ago. You'll have to remind me when the deadline is then, because I have zero days off until the 22nd of August. If it's before then, I'll have to bow out.
