Hello again everybody! Who likes free art? Anybody? I think free art is great!
I'm taking free simple chibi requests - so post your character below and have fun! First come first serve!Great! But why?:
So here's the thing: I have to practice my chibi style, and see what I'm capable of in a small amount of time. I need your
Just like I did with my MLP commissions back in the day, I want to offer free
sketches to people, because I need to see how fast I can do them. It's basically a test to see if I'm actually capable of charging for commissions, or if I still have some things to work out.
But this time it'll be chibis! It's been a goal of mine for a long time to finally get good enough with my art to be able to sell cute chibi commissions.
Keep in mind, these are SIMPLE requests. They will likely be nothing but sketches or something else simple. Here are some examples.
1. No inappropriate themes
2. One character at a time, please
3. Humans only, please! (Animal parts are fine though)
4. Please keep objects to a minimum. I'm practicing how to draw human chibis - not guitars, guns, cars, etc.
5. I know this is going to sound a little strange - but there are three things you cannot expect with certainty:
*Consistency - you can see with the sketches up there that not both of them are drawn in the exact same way. With the worried boy, I did a black and white sketch with a simple chibi style and basic shading. With the girl, I drew her with colored lines and gave her some basic coloring, and a little lighting, but no shading. Also, the chibi style is different - her eyes are more oval, and her face is a different shape than the boy.
In other words STYLE may not be consistent from picture to picture.
*Quality - I'll definitely do the best I can, but this is just a test, so I can't promise that your picture will be as dynamic as another. Of course on the flip-side, your picture may turn out as something I am very proud of!
*Urgency - I have no idea how long they will take. I'm aiming for less than a week per schibi, but as I said, no promises. Part of this test is to check if I can do these pictures in a reasonable amount of time. While the boy took me about 15 - 20 minutes, the bee girl took me around 45 - 60 minutes. Bigger projects or more difficult things, can take me several hours, like my "Cookies, Milk, and Chibis" picture which probably took around 8 hours.6. There is a very small chance that I may message you, and tell you that I unfortunately cannot finish your drawing. This is EXTREMELY unlikely, because if this happens, it will mean I have failed in what I am trying to do - but I am putting this out as a warning just in case.
ANYWAY - I'm just trying to practice.If you do not want me to post your request on DeviantArt
then please tell me, and I'll kindly respect your wishes and simply throw it in my Stash to send to you. Once you have it saved, I can delete it from my stash if you'd like. (I don't know why you would want something so secretive - but, you know. Just in case.
If you're interested, post a reference of your character!
First come first serve but I will only be accepting three at a time
. If you see your name in the #4 slot or blow, there is no guarentee
that I will be drawing your picture. After I am done with the first three, I will choose whether or not to move onto the next three depending on how things are going.
1. 2. 3.
