Thread Paused!
Just until I catch up with the current requests. Paused means NO reserving spots until the pause is lifted. But spots that were reserved before the pause can still post their character sheet thingies and get their characters drawn.

So, I've seen other people do this in the past, and it both looks fun and like good practice! Practice is something I really need, so I thought I'd give this a try! So, if you're interested in getting your character drawn, keep reading!

First and for-most, here's some examples of what people look like when I draw them:

Characters are available in these mediums and forms:

Mediums
-Pencil Sketch
-Ink/line art
-Alcohol Markers
-Watercolour

Forms
-Head
-Head and chest
-Waste-up
-Full body

Note that everything is free, but the more detail (colour, poses, size, etc) the longer it will take. So if you just want a pencil sketch of your character's head, it's going to probably go a lot faster then if you asked for a watercolour or alcohol marker drawing of a full body. But this is not at all to discourage anyone from asking for those!- I need the practice, remember?

If you'd like me to draw your character, please fill out the form below, and post it in this thread! C: Note that the colour questions only apply to the coloured mediums- so if you want just a pencil sketch or just some line art, just skip over that part and concentrate mostly on the shape of your characters and length of their hair and such.

You can fill out as much or as little of the form as you want:
Code: Select all
[b]Age:[/b]
[b]Sex:[/b]
[b]Gender:[/b]
[b]Skin colour:[/b]
[b]Height:[/b]
[b]Eye colour/shape:[/b]
[b]Hair colour/length/style:[/b]
[b]Nose shape:[/b] (exp. Ski jump, rounder, button nose, stubby, sharp, pointy, etc.)
[b]Lip shape:[/b] (same sort of idea as the nose)

I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

Awesome! I love your art style so much! :)
Spoiler! :
Mediums: Alcohol markers

Forms: Head

Age: 23

Gender: Male

Skin colour: He's skin is light but is typically darkly sun-tanned

Eye colour/shape: Grey-blue

Now for physical appearance I'm just gonna be comparing his to these two images if that's cool.

Image

So Jaylin actually looks quite similar to this character except for a few little details. Firstly, Jaylin's jaw is more slim than this guy's. Jaylin also has quite more prominent cheekbones than this dude has, as well as as a slimmer chin.
His nose is practically the same and so are his eyes (which are a light grayish blue).

Now Jaylin's ears are actually pointed, because he is half elf, but no crazy huge elf ears because he's also half human after all.
His hair is pretty much the same to this image and is a dark brown in color.


Here's another reference image of what Jaylin's jaw (and pretty much just his whole face in general) looks like from his side profile.

Image

Clothes:I suppose if you're drawing his head you won't see much of his clothing, but if you wanna draw the collar or something that'd be cool. It looks like this:
Image

Other: Just for his facial expressions it would be awesome if you could draw him with a genuine smile, or with a slight smirk. Either or neither is totally fine!


Edit: Oh and it would also be awesome if you could draw his face from the point of view as the first image. 😊 But that doesn't matter too much.


Thanks!

Of course, @bluewaterlily!

I'm going to pause the thread here though until I get through some of these!

Thread paused!
Just so I don't get swamped, and so I can catch up with the current requests. This means no reserving spots until the pause is lifted- but those who have already reserved a spot may still edit their post/post their character sheet thingies!
I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

Sadly I forgot that the light skin tones I have in alcohol markers... suck. But I did the best I could.

I'm going to scan this tomorrow (so hopefully it won't be all, y'know, blurry) But other than that, Kiernan Abbott is done, @BlueAfrica! c: I decided to do him in marker because I realized I actually had a decent skin tone in there for him!

Spoiler! :

I reallyyyyy wanted to show his tattoo, so I struggled and struggled to do a position where it was showing XP It was good practice! And I have to say, I had a lot of fun trying to draw dread locks.

Slowlyyyyy getting better at drawing guys. Slowly.

!!! Thanks @Holysocks, he looks amazing! I love that you worked to include his tattoo - it's in an odd spot, so it doesn't often show up in drawings. <3
