I need to work on my art & design skills, but it helps to have something to work with - some idea, some constraints, etc. So, I figured I could offer my services to you folks. And, because I don't want to bother to much with responsibility with this presently, I'm happy to say it's all free.
If you want to donate (it might encourage me ), you can send money to dragon_womann @ hotmail.com on PayPal.
I do a variety: traditional and digital; drawings, graphics, and photo-manipulations. I also don't stick to a specific style.
So, your job is to tell me, as clearly as you can, what it is you want.
If you want a character drawing:
I need a pretty clear description of the character - any notable details, anything you care about, needs to be noted. Hair color, length, style; eye color, size, shape; general build (muscular, lean, skinny, curvy...?), pose, birthmarks, face shape (thin, round, square, triangular, long...?); attitude; clothing... Basically, anything you think I might get wrong, tell me about it so I can be as accurate as possible.
You should also let me know if there's any particular style you'd like me to try mimicking. If you don't, I'm likely to put in into whatever the heck style I decide to use. You want anime? Say it. Anything except? Just let me know. Some examples: western comics, realism/semi-realism, cartoon, manga, chibi; dark, scribbly, elegant, art nouveau... Basically, just tack on some relevant adjectives.
Oh, and let me know if it's a portrait or full-body, line-art or color... etc.
And yes, you can give me image references. You want the pose in this image? Awesome. You want the hair to have that particular color fade? Sure. You want a drawing in this particular style? Alright, thanks for letting me know.
If you're willing to pay for something truly amazing, I suggest heading over to Rusty Feather.
If you want a photomanipulation:
So, maybe you have a photo that's perfect for your character - almost. It just needs a little tweak here, and little addition there... and it'll be perfect! Or, maybe the person is fine - you just need a different atmosphere, or things need to be put together right... or something similar.
If you know what photos you want to be used, be sure to pass them my way (preferably a bit large). If you don't have the images yet, you can check out sites like stock.xchng for some (and I'm fine with you just sending the link, then). If you don't have images yet, I might be willing to look some up - but please provide the majority yourself!
If you want an avatar/signature/other graphic:
Again, tell me any details you care about. Colors, styles, imagery, mood, size.... Anything I could do wrong, tell me the right way. I'm likely to try filling in for anything you don't tell me.
Things to be aware of:
- The things I make here are only for use on this site.
- I won't do smut of any kind.
- I might not take on your request.
- If I take your request, it make take awhile, especially for drawings.
- I don't like working with images if you are I don't have full rights to them.
- I won't draw you other peoples' characters. (This mostly means I won't draw you Dante from DMC, or Ash from Pokemon, etc, even if you claim it's for your character. I will, however, allow gift requests for the character's creator.)
- I'll do my best to match your specifications, but I might still not give you what you want.
- I'm less likely to do photomanipulations on drawings and paintings.
For organization, please post requests here. If it's supposed to be a gift for someone else on the site, then you can PM it, so long as the subject says what it is.
