Welp, it’s time. All the requests are in, and this will be my last post until Easter. At which point I will hopefully have TONS of art to post, right?
If anyone wants to contact me for any reason, I will still be checking my email. Feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org —I’m gonna have alot of free time to kill and people to chat with will be welcome.
So it’s almost that time again: Ash Wednesday is on March 5 this year, and once again I will be going offline from then until Easter (not that anyone would notice, since I haven’t posted art since December, ugh.) And since I am going to have lots of free time for that month and a half, and since half the point of this little ritual is to try and make myself draw more, I am taking requests!
Fandoms I am open to include: Legend of Zelda, Harry Potter, DC comics, Star Wars, Homestuck, and Avatar (Last Airbender and Korra.) I’m also getting into Marvel’s Thor and have great affection for Captain America, but am less well-versed in those, so don’t ask me for anything there that will require detailed knowledge.
I’m open to drawing all pairings, but nothing explicit. Kinks aren’t an automatic no, but keep in mind the tone of what I generally post, I guess? And be aware that if I get a request that squicks me I will try to keep the spirit of the original idea, but I’ll change it to accommodate my own limits.
I’m also cool with non-fandom prompts, including original characters, but if you go that route then please make sure you include everything I need to know in your prompt—don’t make me do research, or read some long thing. I am a fickle and lazy reader.
You can also ask for specific media (pencil, colored pencil, pastel, water color, acrylics or oil paint, paper-cut, digital) or art styles. I like trying to mimic other artists, though it doesn’t always end well.
I will check my notes one last time on Wednesday, March 5th before I got to church, and then disappear until sometime after Easter. I make no promises to follow through on all requests, mainly because I have no idea how many I will get? But I’ll do my best.
Card for my secret santa at work. Which, okay might give me away, but I have a rep here okay. Trying for more Norse knots, but I’m not really feeling it here. I mean, I like it okay for what it is, but it doesn’t have that feel. Meh. I really need to work more on this stuff if I want to get good at it, and not just crank them out two or three times a year as gifts.
It’s been months ago (possibly over a year? idk) But I remember once in the comic book store, seeing the Amethyst cover and passing a few confused, excited seconds thinking that I was looking at a comic book about Princess Zelda as a superhero.
I realized my mistake and was disappointed. Time passed. But—man, wouldn’t that be awesome?
More New 52 Kon. I am the broken record.
Actually trying with the coloring, this time. Or rather, picking through comics looking for reference on how people who don’t suck at this do it. It’s better, but—as I knew would happen—the face is 1432% better than everything else. Typical.
I think actually what I really hate about his costume is all the black, because I don’t know wtf I am doing with black.
And then these little face doodles/”studies,” because I felt like I needed to get back to basics. How do I do his face again? The pencil ones I was unhappy with, so for the two inked ones I finally started digging through MY old art, particularly the Kon joins the Superbuddies comic, to work from that. I’m somewhat happier with those, and feel a bit more prepared to do more art now.
More New 52 Kon art.
Firstly this, which I don’t particularly like but put time into so darn it, I’m posting it. Trying to figure out how I draw comic characters again, bleh. How make draws? Art broken D:
Also: Kon’s new costume is just. Stupid. It never looks right, and also all those lines are really confusing to keep track of. When I was trying to get reference from my comics I realized—the artists drawing him can’t keep it straight either; they all arrange them differently. If the costume is too complex for the artists to draw it consistently, then you have a problem.
