About Onyrica

I'm a freelance illustrator & commission artist specialising in character design and fanart. I'm also a mentor to new and intermediate level artists, working with them on improving and overcoming the hurdles holding them back.Although I live in the UK, somewhere North East of London, I'm actually an export from sunny Spain. This means I'm bilingual, have no control over my outdoor voice and will quite readily 'alpargata' you for suggesting paella contains choriTzo.In those rare spare moments I get every fortnight, you might find me playing Final Fantasy XIV as Onyrica Al'erye - probably jammed in between the boxes at the Quicksand, making new players think I'm an NPC.

Art and Mentorship

Although most of my work revolves around creating original and fan illustrations, a huge part of my day to day is providing support to other budding artists with art resources - such as videos, livestreams, brushes and textures - and direct feedback via a lively Discord art community.Art mentorship comes in many shapes and is best when tailored to the person’s level and personality. Through Patreon, I am able to get directly involved in this special hub where artists can ask questions, learn and support each other’s progress and growth within a tight-knit community.You can find out more in my mentorship page - or simply head on straight to supporting this mission on Patreon!

Mentorship information

Hello, wat dis?

So you used to draw in high school but you stopped and although you really want to pick it back up, you have no idea on where to start.Or you’ve been drawing for a while but keep drawing characters with their hands in their pockets because the fingers were looking a little ‘sausagy’ and you don't know why.Or you’ve never touched a pencil before and joke about how you can draw a mean stick figure, but deep down you know that you’re dying to draw a nice, round boy.

Well hello, I’m Ony and I can be your Art Mom!

Art mentorship comes in many shapes and is best when tailored to the person’s level and personality. Through Patreon, I run a Discord community - The Artroom - that welcomes everyone but provides a special hub for artists to share resources, feedback and support each other’s progress and growth in their own art styles.Through The Artroom, I provide a variety of tools and services for all patrons on any of the current tiers, such as:

  • Direct feedback on your pieces in text and paintover form

  • Livestream Q&As where I’ll do paintovers and answer art questions in real time, as well as provide tips and insight based on individual needs and skill

  • Timelapses of my own art process- both lineart and color

  • WIPs of different stages of my art, so you can see not just how I build a piece step by step, but also where I struggle and how I overcome it

Additionally, patrons on the Advanced and Extreme tiers also get:

  • A dedicated 30 minute private session each month where we can go over any art-related topic or feedback you need, including (but not limited to!): art portfolio reviews, paintovers, help with anatomy or gesture and even social media and website reviews. The session is all about you and wherever you are in your art journey!

Once you join my Patreon, you will be added automatically to The Artroom with full access to all of the art-related chatrooms and resources. And of course once you’re in there, you’ll be more than welcome to DM me if you have any specific questions or needs!Note: Patreon will add you automatically if you have connected a Discord ID to your user account. If not, go into Settings > App and do it manually so it will prompt you to join the Discord of people you pledge to.Need some extra input before you take the leap? Check out some samples below or email me at hello@onyrica.art

Made your mind up and decided that this is going to be the year in which you finally draw the 85 OCs you've written an encyclopedia's worth of lore on?

Personal commissions

I currently only offer commissions as Patreon rewards through my points shop "StarStickers"

As a Patreon subscriber you get access to StarStickers, a reward portal of my own creation, where you'll collect points just for pledging.These points can then be cashed in for free art - such as single or couples portraits, mystery boxes, original outfit designs or even an original pencil drawing mailed right to your doorstep. And on top of that, you can also get art lessons, merchandise and more!

Find out more about StarStickers!

Already sold on the idea? Then go right ahead!

FAQ:Will you ever open regular commissions again?
At the moment, it's unlikely.
In my last opening (April 2022) I filled over 60 spots and as a commitment to my patrons I plan to get through all of them. This is likely to take a long time, after which I'll probably need a solid month lying face down in the nearest bayou, so at the moment the only way to get art from me is via StarStickers - my Patreon rewards portal.Do you draw for free / gold / blood sacrifices?
No, but I might do it for a spare liver.

Terms of Service

If you have applied to a project with me, please make sure you thoroughly read through my Terms of Service to understand my process and policy.

Got more questions? Please do contact me on hello@onyrica.art if there's anything you wish to know that I haven't covered here!

Terms of Service


a. By transferring payment it is understood that you agree to these terms of service.b. These Terms of Service are relevant to Commissions, Patreon rewards and any other commercial and non-commercial projects. They are subject to revising, editing, additions and subtractions without notice. If you are interested in a commission, please be sure that you are up to date with this ToS at the time of ordering.c. I retain the right to make exceptions/refusals at my own discretion.


a. Payment is taken up front and in full via SumUp, Wise or PayPal invoice. All prices will be in GBP. Currency conversion is up to the client and might vary according to market fluctuations.b. Commissions that cost over £1000 have an option to be charged in two instalments: 50% of the total price prior to the commencement of any work, and the outstanding balance prior to beginning any coloured or final processes.c. Once the invoice has been paid, no refunds will be offered unless:
• The commission is cancelled by the artist for personal reasons.
• The commission is cancelled by the client before any work has started.
d. The artist reserves the right to cancel a commission at any given time for any reason, including rude or inappropriate/pushy behavior, harassment, the inability to communicate in effective English/Spanish, or failure to communicate at all for an extended period of time. Refunds will be offered at the discretion of the artist.e. The client does not have permission to repost any WIPs/progress images of cancelled commissions in their galleries. They also do not have permission to pay someone to complete the image or to complete it themselves. The artist retains all rights to WIPs of cancelled work and may recycle them as they wish.


a. On most projects, the artist will produce a minimum of 4 WIP (work in progress) samples for the client. These will usually be delivered at different stages: Draft, Sketch, Lineart, Color (if part of the process) and Final.Revisions will be allowed as follows:Draft stage: The client will be able to freely choose and change most details about the piece, including layout and pose. The client will not be able to change the concept or character/s being drawn at this stage.Sketch stage: The client will be able to change core details in the illustration - such as facial features, hair or clothing. The client will not be able to change the concept, characters, pose or composition at this stage.Lineart stage: The client will be able to change minor details in the character's appearance and background, such as markings or elements that were missed. The client will not be able to change the concept, characters, pose or composition or any other structural elements at this stage.Color stage: The client will be able to change colors or tones to better represent the concept, but will not be able to otherwise alter anything that was set during the drawing stage.Final stage: The client will only be able to make very minor modifications, such as slight color or lighting changes that were not previously seen on any WIP sample.b. According to the above, any changes that don't fit the current stage of the process will be considered "large changes" and thus incur additional fees.c. Exceptions to the above will apply if the changes are required due to mistakes, serious diversions or omissions from the agreed-upon character reference occurring by the fault of the artist.c.1- The artist must be notified of these mistakes in the stage they appear in in order to qualify for free modifications. Agreement of a stage that contains mistakes or innacuracies will be considered implicit agreement that the project is proceeding as intended and thus will lock in these aspects to the conditions stated in point a.d. Where revisions are required, the commissioner must let the artist know within 72 hours of receiving the sample. After this period, the sample will be considered agreed upon and the project will be locked into the next stage- or signed off as "completed" if it was the final stage. Any changes requested at these points must fit the windows outlined in point a.e. Within the framework above, the limit for free adjustment requests is 2 per stage. A request - meaning, a message or email containing the required changes - may include as many adjustments as needed in each stage.f. The fees applied to any changes requested outside of these terms will be calculated based on an hourly rate.


a. The artist aims to complete commissions within two months from starting. The client will be informed of any delays specific to their work.b. Any deadlines must be discussed while ordering. Deadlines brought up after payment cannot be guaranteed and the artist has the right to refuse them.c. The artist aims to keep the client up to date on their commission status whenever an update is available or any issues have arisen. The client is free to inquire about updates, though the artist requests that they not be asked for updates several times a week.


a. The artist retains the right to display any commissioned work on any personal gallery. The client can request that their name be withheld and the commission marked as private if they wish.b. The artist retains all rights to any commissions produced, including concepts and sketches. This includes the rights to make prints and merchandise - in the case of commissioned work and original characters, permission would be sought from the clientbeforehand.c. If the client would like the entirety of their commission to be marked private, withheld from being uploaded online or used to create merchandise, a licensing fee will apply.d. Neither the client or any other persons may alter the artwork without permission. In accordance to that, the artist will not provide the working file for use.e. Any characters depicted will remain under full ownership of their owners, but the copyright of the image itself belongs to the artist.f. The client may use the commission for personal, non-commercial purposes such as icons and avatars, banners or personal websites. Credit is optional but appreciated.f-1. The client may ask for permission to repost the piece to their social media. The artist reserves the right to post it first and to request the client reshare that or withold from posting for a specific amount of time.


a. Should the client wish to own the entirety of their commission for any purpose or reason, a licensing fee shall apply.b. The license fee amount will vary based on intended usage and specific requirements and restrictions, and thus will be tailored to each particular client's request.b. Licensing fees will be applied at the discretion of the artist based on a prior discussion and written agreement. The artist reserves the right to not accept a request for licensing for any particular reason.

So, what is StarStickers?

StarStickers is my reward shop, which you get access to by pledging to my Patreon! Every month you’ll get points just for being a supporter, which you can then spend on all kinds of freebies and perks. You can also get more points by participating in monthly creative challenges, referring friends or pledge anniversaries- as well as, of course, upgrading your tier.I'm always looking for new ways to earn more points or add new rewards, so check in often to see what's new!

How do I get points?

The easiest way is simply by just being a Patron! The amount will depend on your membership tier:Easy tier (5$ p/month): 5 points
Intermediate tier (10$ p/month): 10 points
Advanced tier (20$ p/month): 20 points
Extreme tier (50$ p/month): 50 points

What about extra points?

So I hear you need a few extra points to get that sketch of your 47th DnD character? I’ve got you covered! Below is a list of all the ways you can get bonus points:CREATIVE CHALLENGES
No better way to take the dust off that art tablet you bought 5 years ago on an inspired impulse buy! Every month I publish a creative challenge with a loose theme on the Artroom Discord and Patreon timeline. The challenges are open to all forms of media: drawing, writing, photobashing, sculpting, interpretative dancing… most importantly though, they are open to everyone and all skill levels. As long as enough time, care and effort was put into the piece, it will qualify for points!
Reward for this event: 5 to 10 points/month
Everything’s better with a friend- especially if you get something out of it! If you convince a friend to join my Patreon, you will both get a double point boost on the tier your friend signs up to! E.g: If your friend joins the Intermediate tier, you will both get 10 points on top of your monthly allocation. This bonus applies one time per friend, but will be reapplied for new referrals- meaning, the more friends you bring, the more points you get!
Please note: New friends must be pledged for at least a month before the referee points get allocated to your account.
Reward for this event: x2 friend tier points / once per friend
Happy Patreon Birthday to youuuu! If you’ve been pledged for a year- first off, THANK YOU. To celebrate your Artling anniversary, I’ll double that month’s points for the tier you’re pledged to at the time! This bonus will be applied for every pledge anniversary- with likely bonus points being added the longer you pledge. Because Starstickers are better than cake.
Reward for this event: x2 tier points/one-off per year
New point events coming soon!
I’m constantly looking for new ways to offer more to my patrons, so check back for new ways to earn points!

How do I spend my points?

Once you’ve collected enough points for a reward, simply go to the front page of StarStickers and click on the reward you wish to redeem. The process is fairly straightforward- if a little different depending on the reward you choose.For illustrated rewards, you'll be asked to upload references and a description of what you're after. For other rewards, such as lessons or discounts, you will have to message me to speficy when and how you want to book it in.

Do I need to pay anything on top of the points?

Nope! All rewards are currently cashed in only in points - meaning that all the money you've put towards your pledge will have effectively paid for your commission.If this should change for any particular rewards, it will be explicitly stated in the booking page.

What happens if I change or delete my pledge?

If you increase your pledge, you will get the difference in points applied to your account immediately!If you reduce your pledge, the points you received at the start of the month will remain the same (i.e, no points will be deducted). Going forward, you will receive the lower amount of the tier you’re on.If you delete your pledge, your account will be frozen but your points will remain untouched. If you decide to rejoin at any stage, your account will be reactivated with all the points you left off with.

I'd like to get some points now!

Lovely! Then here's a big, shiny button for you:

Onyrica's Art

Thank you for checking out my art! Below you'll find categories for the different types of art I make.
While much of my work focuses on FFXIV characters, I enjoy drawing from a variety of sources- such as Warcraft, DnD or even original stories! I love trying new things and exploring interesting ideas and styles, and there's rarely a thing I'll say I can't do.





Want to help me make more art?

For older pieces, please check my Tumblr, Deviantart or Artstation pages.


A lineart piece is a simple, monochrome drawing that focuses on the piece's design and expression. I will usually add some minor shading to create depth and focus, and a splash of color to breathe some life into the characters. This is one of my favourite styles and I find focusing on the line-weight very cathartic.

Want to help me make more art?

For older pieces, please check my Tumblr, Deviantart or Artstation pages.

Flat art

These pieces are colored with bright, vivid tones in a way that brings life to the image while maintaining the aesthetic simplicity and crispness of the lineart. I often also use textures and patterns that complement the illustration's motif in order to give it a unique personality.

Want to help me make more art?

For older pieces, please check my Tumblr, Deviantart or Artstation pages.

Color art

Color pieces involve deep shadows and highlights, blended together with the lineart to give the image a three dimensional feel. This style allows for a variety of moods and settings and, although time consuming, it's very gratifying to work through to a finished, polished piece.

Want to help me make more art?

For older pieces, please check my Tumblr, Deviantart or Artstation pages.

Chibi art

A chibi is a very stylised and cute caricature portrait. These are usually painted in a simple color style and focus heavily on the personality and quirks that make a character unique. These are exceptionally fun to draw, as they allow me to relax on the details and experiment on poses and expressions.

Commission Prices---

Hi there! First, thank you so much for your interest in my commissions. It means a lot that you'd like to have your characters drawn by me!Please note that the number and type of slots in this batch will be limited to 15-20 mixed types.Slots are always offered exclusively to my Patreon supporters. When this happens, I announce it to my patrons via my Patreon page and discord along with all the relevant information (i.e, who is eligible, what kind of slots I'm offering, pricing, etc). Patrons on the highest tiers (Extreme & Advanced) are always given first notice and priority when opening slots.

Is there any other way to get art from you if your commissions are closed?

Yes, and it's actually the most reliable way to get art from me these days.Through my Patreon you get access to StarStickers, my reward portal, where all supporters collect points just for pledging. These points can then be cashed in for free art - such as lineart and color busts, couples portraits and more - as well as art lessons and prints in my reward portal!Find out more about StarStickers!

Alright, think I've got it!

Other Frequently Asked Questions:Do you open commissions to non-patrons?
When I open commissions, I offer them first to Patreon supporters who have been pledging and waiting for slots to open. As this usually fills up all availability very quickly, it leaves me with no capacity to open slots to the public.
Why do you only offer commission slots to patrons?
While commissions are not inherently a reward for pledging, they are a way for me to say thank you to those who help me make ends meet as a freelance artist.
The truth about commissions is that they hardly pay the bills on their own. While I am very fortunate to get a lot of requests I can only work on them so fast without compromising the quality of my art, my ability to mentor other artists or my health.By offering them to patrons, I get to work in smaller batches with the people who have helped me make a steady income, which means I can keep my prices affordable and take the time I need to give them the best of my ability.What if I pledge at a lower tier?
As stated above, patrons on the Extreme and Advanced tiers will get first dibs on any available slots, while any remaining availability will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis to any patrons on the lower tiers. Please do note that there is no guarantee that there will be slots available this way.
Can I get it faster if I pay a rush fee?
I accept one rush fee order at a time, with a minimum turnaround time of 3 weeks. The price and conditions of this will depend greatly on personal circumstance, so please message me (or email me at hello@onyrica.art) to enquire further.
I.e, Please do NOT assume I can have it done by a specific deadline until you’ve spoken to me.Can you put me on a wait list/notify me when your slots open?
I'm afraid I can't. I get upwards of 100 commission enquiries a month and I can't humanly keep track of them all. The best way to find out when my slots are opening is to keep an eye on this page or on my Discord server if you're a patron.
Do you draw for free / gold / blood sacrifices?
