Natali, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I love the Queen Amidala sketches you did for me. I thank you for accommodating me with the three sketches. I know many wanted to be a part of this sketch op, so I know how lucky I am. All three commissions have blown me away. Thank you for everything. - Ocram G. Just wanted to say thank you for the amazing level of customer server service from everyone involved, and the brilliant artwork. - Justin R.
Got my new prints up on the wall, I love them so much. Thank you so very much again Natali Sanders your work never stops amazing me, you are a great and wonderful artist and friend to have in this world. - Dustin C. You did an amazing job on both of my commissions. The Dr. Harleen Quinzel and the Laura Vandervoort Supergirl. I think that the new Harleen print would look great displayed with the comic. - Clay D.
Hey "No E"!! I have seen you have prints up for sale. Ship your incredible talent over to the shores of the U.K. - Steve M.
I think your pictures are beautiful (my good friend Nene Thomas thinks you're awesome too and that's saying something). And it was nice to virtually meet you too. You're amazing and inspiring for a poor little aspiring artist such as myself. Few people colour with tradional media anymore. -Yvonne T.
Hello Natali. I just received my Queen Amidala commissions today. All I can say is that they look phenomenal. The ability to see all the details in the background and the subtle nuances (the colors used in the eyes and the eyelashes) just make these commissions true master pieces in my collection. I hope I will be able to get a spot in your next sketch op. Once again thank you so much for your passion you showed towards doing these pieces and making them truly priceless. -Ocram G.

PRINTS: Starting in 2016 all newly produced prints will have the Authentic foil seal. This will bring more value while protecting the image from fraud.
COMIC CONVENTIONS: I'm sorry, but I won't be attending many, if any, comic cons. My schedule is too full and I feel as though the con industry is becoming over saturated. If by chance I do attend, I will let you know here and on my fb page.
Scheduled Cons 2017: AZ Eventure Con. February 18th.
NEW PRODUCTS: I am putting together a hardbound art book of all my works from comics, commissions, and original paintings. It's already over 100 pages! A must for the avid collector. I'll post here to let you know when it's up on kickstarter.com. Soon I will have some shirts up to purchase and I'll have everyone on facebook vote for the one(s) they really like.
COMMISSIONS: My commission list is constantly growing from demand, and I'm sorry if I have to turn anyone away. But there are many prints, limited sketch covers, or a few originals left to consider.
A little after dropping out of college she was discovered and began to draw for comic companies as a cover artist. During this time, she was influenced from drawing others
characters, so she finally started to write. After a couple years she then solely began to take on commissions, with one or two...
ORIGINAL CREATIVE ARTWORKS
In 2010 I drew, "Dragon Protector," with dry pastel, charcol, and Prismacolor pencils on 100% cotton 22x29.5 fabric. My favorite story is, Beauty and the Beast. So during my passion for drawing dragons, I created my version with a twist.
STORY Scarlet, becomes a great warrior princess, trained in difficult times to protect the dragon race. A race that was at one time made of twenty, good-powerful-human Kings. These kings were turned by a dark Demon Lord, into baby dragons. Immediately, they were hunted, but only the strongest of the dragons survived. Seven had escaped and lived for quit some time in hiding while growing into their new strong bodies. On their seventh year since transforming, they received a vision by the Dark Lord, revealing a second chance to become human again. They had to find a glowing blue stone and crush it to break the spell. However, the Dark Lord warned, once they begin to search for it and by the time they find the stone, they most likely will have forgotten they were human. It was still a chance and knowing the risk, while in search and the more time that passed stripped the seven King's humanity away as promised. So one of the seven dragons, King Red, realized the Dark Lords true plans.
Red asked himself, "Why would he give us a second chance if its most likely to cause us to forget once we find the stone? What's the point when we all have successors? he doesnt seem to want to rule our lands." It only made since that the Dark Lord wanted them for his use, like slaves. So Red, not wanting to be defeated, found a dainty blonde, Princess Scarlet, but he unfortunately had not much time left to earn her trust as he continued to forget.
A few months passed as it took time for Scarlet to realize he wasn't going to kill her. But what really made her begin to change her mind was his odd behavior, the way he walked, his head movements that suggested emotions, or how he stared at her intently. So she began to wonder and used her magical gifts from her tattoos she was born with and used one to hear his thoughts. After learning from Red, about the Dark Lord and the curse, she began to train. She then used her remaining gifts to match Reds abilities of strength, a blade forged to be as strong as his teeth, and to be able to see through his eyes - which is why her eyes are yellow. From their strong connection her hair is a reflection of his eyes when they are linked.
Here, she is defending Red, against the Dark Lord, which is angered by their plausible defeat as the freeing blue rock rests just inside of the cave. Unfortunately, at this point, Red, has become mostly a dragon, but Scarlet won't give up as she has fallen in love with him.
