a gloomy backdrop for a class game project
hi! actually most commissions I do (and the ones I prefer) are for ideas so no worries there. and yeah totally. obviously it’d take a while and I’d like to get solid ideas of what is needed up front but I would be more than happy to work on something like that, yeah.
this can totally go here ‘cause I drew it. if you haven’t already, now is as good a time as any to read the synopsis of old episodes, and jump in listening to the current arc, The Queen’s Wood..!
Let’s Play The Thirteenth Age Session 34: Meet Manuél
With the Queen’s well-wishes, the party makes their way to the mansion-turned-laboratory where the race of Orcs was first created and where the first Orc Lord lies interred. With the help of the new friend, they begin navigating the curse-drenched and ghost-blasted halls.
my 3 latest commissions complete at current prices— $40, $40, and $50, respectively.
jalathas asked: I can't tell from the commission post, what's the difference between a sketch sheet and a full design? I assume a full design is more complex, but in what way, exactly?
you got it! for a sketch sheet, I just get whatever ideas I have for a character commissioned down as quick and readably as possible. it’s meant more as a base for future use. I think it’s the best option if you’d like a quick lined-and-colored reference for a character. a full design is higher-res, more complete, and aesthetically appealing.
(in the future, I may retire the sketch pages because they don’t get much interest, though..!)
thighhighsarelove asked: Digging the art style you've developed over the years. While this isn't a commission, I've got a question: have you ever worked on a small game or animated project (and if not, would you)?
thanks! I also love thigh highs.
I have not, besides a very very small stint animating for Global Game Jam 2013 (nobody else was available really), but I got into art via game development yearnings and am really hoping to get a job somewhere for character design or visual development, so… yeah I totally absolutely would.
ikks nayhelm 2014 commissions are live! be sure to contact me with any questions about additional styles other than those shown here, group shots, etc. browse my tumblr for even more high-res examples!
CHA FEEL YA, BRUHS.
good luck getting your wheels and gears greased, everyone! stay healthy and keep makin’ cool stuff
tumblr art friends: if you are at all like me, sometimes you want to draw but your mind is a blank slate and nothing good comes out of the stylus like it’s meant to. lately, I’ve been trying to make a habit of practicing even when my creative-brain refuses to cooperate by drafting my analytical brain instead: when I am browsing tumblr and see a piece I really like— photo, painting, screenshot, pretty much anything— I take a screenshot, drag it into SAI, and start sketching over it, trying to imagine what the original sketch lines would have looked like. it usually only takes me a few minutes, and it seems like a solid way to keep my fundamentals alive— breaking stuff down into shapes, practicing skeletons for really cool proportions, etc.
once I get this down, I think I will definitely start reconstructing further for practice. I don’t save any of these sketches, however, and I would never upload one— even with proper credit given to the original creator, I’d feel awfully queasy about that. hence using my own art to demonstrate.
