Thanks so much for the commission, I had so much fun~ ; w ; !
I got a set of beautiful card commissions done by the lovely annaxin.
These two are my Shadowrun OCs: Kit (Deception) & Julian (Devotion).
Thanks so much once again for the commissions, I enjoyed drawing them so much! <3
As of yet I don’t make prints so I can only offer limited advice, I’m sorry! I also haven’t yet attended any cons so I haven’t drawn anything with the specific end goal of having it as print-worthy as possible, but these are probably things to keep in mind:
This is pretty general advice, I’m sorry anon ;A; Maybe ask around for someone who’s more experienced to offer more specific advice? Best of luck with all your art and prints though!!
Hey, that’s alright anon! My canvas is usually around 25cm x 30cm after cropping, and I usually start off with 40 cm x 50 cm at 300-400dpi.
I hope that answers your question! :-)
im opening character commissions for (hopefully) the next 2 or 3 months! The options I’ll be offering are:
If you’re interested, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!!
Thankyou so much!
Thankyou so much for reading, I hope you all have a lovely day! ♥
Hi anon!! Hmm well this is personally what I’ve found from my own experiences, but remember that everyone works differently so if this doesn’t resonate with you feel free to ignore it!
Hi anon! I think the most important thing to do if you can’t afford life drawing classes is to go out and draw people whenever you can! People in food courts, people on the bus, people walking to work, people taking pictures, etc. I use a small hardcover sketchbook for outside drawing so I have something to lean on but even just purchasing a stack of printer paper and a clipboard/book has worked for me in the past.
If it’s accessible, try looking for any life drawing sessions held near you that are free. I go to a session outside of class that is $5 each session, and I go to a session about once every one or two weeks. The art scene isn’t very prominent here in Australia though, so maybe there are cheaper options where you live? Have a look around, and see if there are any that suit your budget and availability!
If not, even try asking around with friends/family/roommates/etc. to see if anyone is willing to pose for you (most likely clothed.) If you’re living with anyone, you can draw them working/lounging around/watching TV as well!
If you are out of options, there are websites like posemaniacs and pixelovely that can help with figure drawing; however, I’d see if these websites suit what you’re trying to learn first! Since the images are already flattened it makes it a lot easier to translate an already 2D image onto your page, and doesn’t help you learn 3D shape and form. However, if you’re learning something else (maybe like trying to simplify/stylise shapes) it might help! Drawing real people in real spaces though is probably your first priority, but if that’s not an available option anything within your resources is the way to go.
