FransMensinkArtist's Profile Picture

Frans Mensink
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Netherlands
I am a freelancer, self employed, self taught illustrator for 25 years. Started in Heavy Metal Art (CD art, gag-comic in Aardschok magazine, posters and such) but leaned towards the erotic and fantasy always (sometimes in a combination of the two realms). I have a graphic novel trilogy published by NBMpublishing.com about Kristina, Queen of Vampires (hardcore stuff), had erotic and mainstream gag-comics published in magazines, newspapers and have illustrated websites, books and stories.
I do many storyboards and such (lay-outs, animatics) for ad agencies worldwide.

I photograph models often which has helped me with the lighting, expression and mood in my paintings and I always try to capture my models as sexy, elegant, intense, emotive and sensual beings more often than not. Currently you can see more photos come by in my posts than usual because I am working on a new erotic graphic novel in which the models (Lucia and Heidi) are featured. It brings together two art disciplines really. The photos serve as reference for my drawing the characters, but as a promotion for the comic as well.

Limited numbers of personally autographed posters are available at escapecollectibles.com and a couple (not autographed) posters are available on Deviant Art. See the section above.
If you are interested in commissioning me, please read the section below first.
For much more art and information visit my ALL NEW official website Online since May 4th 2014:
Interests

Commissions

Yes, I am available for paid commissions.
There are some things you might want to consider before contacting me though;

I do custom artwork and that means I have to know what you want, how you would like it to look, how the character(s) should be and what the painting should depict. It's also important to know what will happen with my painting when it's done. Is it for publication or private use and what size and format would be preferred? Those are important details that influence the price.
I can't consider commissions without a full briefing by private note.

I am pretty versatile and good at what I do. I'm fast, efficient, discrete and reliable, but I am never cheap.
I will usually pass on commissions under 150 Euro as nothing serious in my style can be done for fees like that, but to be honest; if you want something worthwhile and lasting it'll probably cost more.
Erotic art is frowned upon anyway and it won't get any better if I would do rush work just because the budget is not adequate.

I DON'T HAVE PRICE LISTS AS I AM NOT A FAST FOOD RESTAURANT!
Every job is different and I need to know how much time I would have to invest to be able to make a sensible quote.
You have to brief me first.

I'm not limited to erotic art. I'll be happy to make you something else. As I am in advertising I can make almost anything believable. As long as the main subject is people. I doze off when I only have to make machines of any kind, buildings or landscapes.

Most commissions do not make it into my galleries. That is because they're either too personal and sensitive for the client or because it is too different for my portfolio. I'd like that to reflect my personal interests.
I have to consider that whatever I post anywhere might generate more similar commissions and I am careful not to wind up in scenes or get stuck on themes or subjects that are not mine. I don't mind to digress now and again thematically but all within limits as time is always of the essence.
If you understand all that feel free to note me or to email me via my official site with your proposal (indecent or otherwise :)). Commissions can't be discussed in the comments section.

Thank you

The level and quality of work here is very, very inspirational - and jaw dropping to say the least and it most definitely has a modern 'Frank Frazetta feeling' to them whose work is also very inspirational.  I love his sci-fi book cover art. Classic!

Have you done any fan art of the Fire and Ice animated movie?
I can only aspire!
Cheers!
