|After a year, I've managed to make all these characters. They'll be vital to keep my art going|
|There mostly is traditional work here Most games you'll see fan art of are Nintendo games, as those are the ones I've played the most throughout my gaming life. However, there will be games developed by other companies drawn here as well. That said, the "mood" of drawings goes from happy-colourful-friendly to pretty disturbing.|
That also applies for my digital Although serious/mature themes are not as frequently drawn as humorous ones.
This is why you (and your art) get ignored.People often get the sense of being ignored in the art-scene, especially here online. We all try so hard to get our foot in the door, it's like trying to stuff yourself in an overfull bus like a sardine in a can.This is why you (and your art) get ignored. by Suzanne-Helmigh
Sometimes you just want to socialize with other artists you admire and you seem to be talking into a brick wall or perhaps you've send your portfolio to a company over a dozen times and still don't even seem to get the smallest response or feedback. I will try and tell you WHY you get ignored and HOW you can get noticed instead.
I will go through the following cases of being ignored:
Do know, that even though being ignored feels very personal it's hardly ever personal at all!
Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T
Sup, peeps! |
I am a very talkative person on this site
My way of drawings is pretty cartoon-esque :I It is currently evolving from stick-man like people to characters with a more "real" anatomy.
Currently studying graphic design
Now let's talk fan art:
I've found locations to be funnier to draw, as I can create many different situations in each, with my people being thrown in. I feel it kinda makes the drawings be a bit more alive, to say in a way.
The games I'll be drawing from are mostly games that I've played. However, some exceptions have occurred, which are either games I haven't played yet (but would like to), or games that I thought their levels were amusing enough to consider
THE BIG PROJECT: I've thought that drawing from all the games I've played would be a big achievement However, as of now, it's about 141 games we talk about
It usually takes a semester to complete each set of games (considering each is a set of 6 games); this is just a rough guess, having in mind that I'd keep the same pace of work each month. Since I complete these lists a lot faster once I'm on vacation or a break of sorts, it could take shorter. The amount of games per list can vary, depending on how many locations each game has to offer.
All in all, counting from the very first drawing, it would take about 10 years to get it all done With the games being split in about 23 different lists.
Approximating the total of drawings per list to an average of 80, the total amount of drawings by the end of this project would be of 2316 Holy crud, this is one big goal I set myself...
On the subject of original art:
My set of characters is pretty diverse, and even though the total amount is already set to 30, more characters are likely to appear in the future. These will be side-characters, and can work as "guests" in my traditional works, meaning that they would only appear every so often.
What I do with these characters isn't exactly one big story, but just little gags that show how their everyday-life can be (random events). Character development happens gradually, and implicitly...
I mostly use MS Paint for my works, and Microsoft Photo premium (Picture it) for some filters. However, I've started to also use Adobe Illustrator every now and then.
What I do:
Commissions: No :L Anything that involves points/money, I don't do that.
Requests: Not for traditional fan art, at least. I do requests for friends/watchers, actually.
HOWEVER... If you'd like to see your original characters appearing alongside mine, be it either in my traditional or digital, let me know. That I like doing
Llamas, Favs and watches are returned with comments. You're welcome
I don't watch for the sake of watching, by the way. I do it just with friends; as much as I'd like to see awesomesauce from someone, I prefer that the person I'm watching is friendly and talkative.
Now let's enjoy dem drawings!
