It's been a very productive week, with three character portraits completed, fourteen sketches for Free Sketch Day, and two crowdfunding projects and a prize drawing illustration started.

Character Portraits:

From left to right (from the last two weeks):  [livejournal.com profile] timelord1's Rowenne Kennock and Jaerus, [livejournal.com profile] ellenmillion's Torn World character Ivarra, [livejournal.com profile] timelord1's creature the Uilebheist, and [livejournal.com profile] just_the_ash's character Angamarth.

 



Prize Drawing Illustration:

I completed the line art for [livejournal.com profile] minor_architect's prize drawing illustration.  I'm calling this one Firespirit. (Note: nudity, so full size sketch is not work safe!)


Crowdfunded pieces:

Blocked in the flat colors over the sketch for the waterfall painting, as yet untitled.



And completed the line art for Trickster.



Remember, the waterfall painting and "Trickster" are open for crowdfunding!  Contribute to whichever one you like by clicking the "Tip Jar" icon.  Be sure to specify what you want tips to go toward, and let me know what your LJ ID is so I can keep track of everyone and send out perks when they're ready.

Good evening, all.  :)

As promised earlier in the week, tonight I'm going to share a tutorial on drawing human eyes.  This one focuses on female eyes, but can be applied to male eyes with a little tweaking.



Tutorial is behind cut. )

Had two commissions from this week's Discounted Character Portrait Days.  (The sale is going for the rest of the day, so feel free to put in your requests!  Prices are $5 for black and white portraits, $20 for digitally inked and colorized, and $50 for digital paintings.)

Click the thumbnails to enlarge.  Both of these are requests from [livejournal.com profile] timelord1 for her [livejournal.com profile] ethian_wanderer project.  The first is "Lavinnia" and the second, "Lily MacTalla."

   

Also, [livejournal.com profile] timelord1 was the winner of last month's Free Sketch Day Prize Drawing.  She had asked for "TARDIS" as her prompt, and so:

Good morning, friends list!

Last week, I held $5 Character Portrait Days, which went quite well.  Today, I'm going to offer other heavily discounted portrait options, so I'm going to change the name of this event to:

Discounted Character Portrait Days

 Have an original role playing character, or an original fiction character that you would like to see realized in a drawing?  

Each week on Wednesday and Thursday, I will open up for character portrait commissions.  These will be head-and-shoulders portraits.

Note:  Please also bear in mind that I'm currently caring for an Alzheimer's patient who needs constant supervision and frequent hands-on care while creating artwork, so turnaround time will be slower than normal.  I'll attempt to get to everyone's artwork by the end of this week.

Okay, I finished the last of last week's $5 Character Portrait Day drawings just now. I was going to post them tomorrow, but may as well do so tonight since I'm all about the insomnia at this point apparently. ;)

Hey, all!  Just dropping by quickly to say I'm going to leave my "$5 Character Portrait Days" open one more day this week.  So if you have an original character that you use for role playing or fiction writing that you'd like to see drawn in a head-and-shoulders grayscale portrait, go here to put in your order!  I'm being a bit slow right now due to some time-consuming family issues, but I promise to get to every portrait that is asked for.

Good morning, friends list!

Today, I am going to begin a new weekly event, which will be held two days a week in addition to my once-weekly Free Sketch Days.

$5 Character Portrait Days

 Have an original role playing character, or an original fiction character that you would like to see realized in a drawing?  

Each week on Wednesday and Thursday, I will open up for black and white character portrait commissions.  These will be head-and-shoulders portrait sketch-drawings, as pictured below.

How to put in your request for your $5 Character Portrait:

1)  Comment on this entry with:


   a) The Name of your character

   b)  Physical characteristics-- be as detailed as possible.  Relative build, hair and eye shade  (the image will be black and white, but it helps to know how light or dark to make various features), general shape of face, clothing choices, tattoos, any other defining characteristics will help.   


   c)  Some key personality traits.  Is he/she confident, vengeful, excitable, angsty, noble,     courageous?  This will help with facial expression and pose.
 
    d)  Please specify whether you will be okay with me posting your character drawing to a compilation entry on my blog, or using it as examples for future $5 Character Portrait Days.  No hard feelings if you don't; I just would rather know.  :)
 
   e)  Specify if you would like the character's name on the art.

   f)  Any other comments or details you can think of.

Please note:  I cannot take paid commissions of previously copyrighted material from television, movies, books, etc.  Please be sure any request you make is for characters who belong to you!

2)  I'll create the art and send it to you in a PM on Live Journal.  If you have your message options set to off, please give me an alternate email so I can send you the art.  Also, please be aware that these images will be more rendered than the sketches I create for Free Sketch Day, so it will take a bit longer to complete them, especially if I have several in queue.  I promise that I will get to each and every one of you who comments with a request, though.

3)  There will be a pre-set "Buy Now" PayPal button at the bottom of this entry for payment.  Each portrait is $5. 

And, that's about it!  Have at it!

Here are the results of today's Free Sketch Day.  Thank you so much to everyone who participated and helped to spread the word!  We had a wonderful turnout today.

Free Sketch Day is now closed; comments on this entry will now be screened.  Thank you so much to everyone who participated!  The sketches from today's FSD will be gathered into a separate entry later tonight.  :)

Good morning, friends list, visitors, and lurkers! Once again, it is Tuesday, which means that it is the weekly Free Sketch Day that I host on this blog.

So, come on in, make yourselves comfortable, and leave your one word prompts. I will create a free sketch for every prompt left. You can leave more than one prompt if you want, but do be aware that I'm only one person and that there are others waiting for sketches as well, so please be reasonable and considerate with the number of requests. :) I'll stop taking requests at 5 p.m. CST; at that point I'll start screening comments for this post. Also, please allow time for me to get to your prompt, especially if there are a lot of prompters. I will make every effort to get to all of the prompts today; barring that, tomorrow. Again, it depends on how many prompts I receive.

FSD (Free Sketch Day) will ALWAYS be free of the obligation to pay; however, I am going to add a Tip Jar to the bottom of each weekly post. The funds accrued from these tips will go to funding a finished piece, either a refined drawing, an ink-and-color drawing, or a digital painting depending on how much has been put in the Jar. (I am currently holding a Holiday Sale-- for pricing, see This Post) If funding is successful, the prompt that will be used will be decided by you in a vote!

Also, once a month, I will hold a prize drawing for one piece of free digitally inked and colorized artwork based on the FSD prompt of the winner's choice.

And that's about it. Have at it!

So, Christmas is coming up, and this year, I'm creating artwork for friends and family.

I just finished my dad's Christmas present today.  Yep, he's DEFINITELY a Trekkie, and loved the new movie, so it was sort of a no-brainer.
