I'm a professional illustrator and game's artist, I draw a lot, all the time, every day. I've been in publishings from Wizards of the Coast, Paizo, Fantasy Flight, etc. I've worked with clients like SEGA Europe and CD Projekt Red, I've shipped four game titles...in short, I'm pretty busy!

If you have an inquiry or freelancing opportunity, please note or email me at rivmammoli(at)gmail.com

Thanks for your understanding.
Enjoy the gallery!

Hey guys!

Ok, I get a lot of questions regarding whether or not I'll be open for commissions any time soon.  The truth is, it varies from month to month depending on my workflow and what is requested from my clients.  However, adding up my sums for the year of 2014 as a freelancer it became obvious to me that the current prices just aren't enough for a liveable wage, so I'll probably end up increasing my prices or trying to do something of a "per hour" buying method some other artists are currently working with.

For instance, at $25/hr you can get something like:

1hr: Sketch of a single character ($25)

4hr: Painted bust of a single character ($100)

8-10hr: Full painted single character ($200-$250)

15hr+: Full illustrations, price and time varying depending on the description of the scene and how many characters are involved. ($375+)


This way, going into commissions you'll pretty much know exactly what you're paying for right off the bat, and I know exactly how much time to spend on commissions.  This may also motivate me to do a lot more streaming of commissioned work, so that the commissioner can see the process and enjoy it at the same time :)  

ALL payments will have to be up front and through paypal from now on. Unfortunately, this last year I got ripped off multiple times by clients simply abandoning the project once it was done and refusing to pay the other half of the commission, so it will be policy from now on to receive the payment up front.

Hopefully this makes sense, and if you're curious whether or not I'm going to be opening in the new year, the answer is...maybe!  I might have some time, so if you are interested in a commission and are happy with the new rules/process, why not send me a note or email (rivmammoli(at)gmail.com) so you can let me know what you want, and I can see if we can make it work.

Thanks guys, and sorry for the annoyingly long post!

Koviell Commission by damie-m
Koviell Commission
A piece done for a client featuring their Kobold character Koviell.
Skyrim soundtrack was an obvious thing during this, heh! I always enjoy doing Kobolds, but add ruins and a mountain and I'm a happy painter.
15 hours in Photoshop CC!

Paint a Horror Portrait Class by damie-m
Paint a Horror Portrait Class
Hey guys!  I've got a new course on Skillshare for painting horror portraits (mainly this one that you're seeing here).  It's free I think, so if you're in the mood you can check it out:
skl.sh/1xN8JHE

Otherwise, I decided to depict a character that may appear eventually in the Obsidius world, a nosferatu-inspired burn victim named Bailey.  He's supposed to be one of the good guys, friend of Demicus and all around sob story that I won't get into here. Enjoy!

Hey, just came across your work last week. As a long-time fan of all things undead, I gotta say I find your work outstanding. I'm really glad to see Paizo's name among you're work, your stuff is the stuff I like in my sourcebooks :)

Did you used to have a painting of a creature with its mouth open, draped in red cloth?
