I don't know if this is always the case for most artists, but it always takes me so much longer to finish pieces that I've promised to my friends than it does for clients.  Here are just a few examples of that :)
This is a Christmas, yes you read right, present for my friend Jason (Jaysun).  I just asked him what character he would want if I were to make it realistic looking and he didn't hesitate in saying, "Terra."
Terra is a DC Comics character...she has control over the earth, hence the boulders.  This is the newer version of Terra, not to be confused with the bucktoothed Teen Titans one.  I did use a reference with this piece, which you can check out here: 
 This next one is for Jason's girlfriend Jen, and yet another tardy Christmas present.  "The Wallflower" is one of her favorite anime/mangas, and it's one of my personal favorites.  I like how this one turned out, but I think I could have done better.  The flow of it seems off to me...but then again I could be over analyzing.  I had fun though with the giant eyes and the little guys that are in "freak out mode" at the bottom.
 Last but not least is the piece that I did for my friend Richard.  Richard took a little longer to decide on what he wanted...but he eventually came back with Cyclone who is also another DC Comics character.  Cyclone's powers are flight, and air/wind manipulation and she is a part of Justice Society of America (JSA).  She's a pretty new character, and I had a TONE of fun with this one.  This piece had a lot of "firsts" for me: first time making up the hair, first time making up clothing, and first time taking a photo that inspired me and really making it my own.  The photo that I used is here:
He's got a lot of really great work...and it's pure eye candy!
So, there they are, the newest of the new.  I'm starting on pieces now that I'll be selling in Baltimore come August.  If you guys have any suggestions on what you think is buy-able, then please let girl know.  'Til the next time! :*
