2 Free Sprites for 3 people (each) [FILLED]

#1 Post by choklitchan » Tue Jun 07, 2011 2:00 pm

I saw AppendageChild doing this, and I thought it was a great idea.

It's summer vacation, I'm >already< bored, and I need to get out of my drawing rut.
Which is part of the reason why I haven't worked on anything the past few days...
>_< Shame shame shame

For three people interested, I can draw a maximum of two sprites with six expressions each. You choose which ones.

Please provide a profile of your characters; age, height, personality, etc. it would be nice if you linked your story too.
If you have a concept sketch of your character, even better.
I don't know how long it will take me to finish them; so please be patient.

Sorry, I won't draw for hentai, BxB or GxG stories. Please don't jump on me for this; these are my personal beliefs, and I'm not trying to hate on anyone. I love you all, and I respect your beliefs, so please respect mine. :)

To give you an idea of what I can do...
Example art-
> Bishie boys (I especially love making these. <3)
Image
Image

>Realistic Anime
Well, my attempt at semi-realistic, anyway... As realistic as a post-apocalyptic zombie hunter can be.
Image

>Manga
Image
>chibi
Image

>Colored/Inked

Ah, and if you please; if you end up not needing my sprites, please tell me so I can release them as free-to-use.
And... yeah. ^_^ I hope I can help a few people with their projects this way. Here's to hoping there'll be more VNs!

why has no one taken advantage of this yet my god

How would you like to draw a mecha pilot and his catgirl wingman?

You're art looks fantastic and I will never give up a chance at free, high quality sprites.

This project is at the very beginning stages though, so would you mind if I have a day or so to get proper profiles down?
I need two female pirates. I just really really wish I had a bishie request because yours are really yummy. :)

EDIT: Similarly to Elenakiara, I'd actually need at least 1 more sprite and a side-image bust, so roughly how much would you charge for extra work?

Right, so. I'd like these in a semi-realistic manga style, as you had an example of above.

Pilot:

Male in his late teens. Feel free to give him the bishie treatment! Wavy dark hair cut short in a military haircut, out of his eyes, athletic. Bright blue eyes. Wearing a skintight pressurized jumpsuit in grey and blue with some armored plating and the insignia of Earth with wings instead of that chevron. Possibly a helmet under his arm. Possibly a little short. Two silver bars as a rank pin on his shoulder.

Mission Control:

Catgirl, with feline facial structure and tiger markings. Tall, graceful, sleek, slightly curvy. In a looser uniform with a sari in silver and blue. Has a headset through which she can speak to her pilot and is manipulating a holographic computer display, including a touch-screen holo keyboard. Also has an Earth/Wings insignia on her shoulder, and a silver bar rank pin.

Going to request neutral and the five basic expressions: Anger, Disgust, Joy, Sadness, Shock/Fear.
She's sun and rain: She's fire and ice. A little crazy, but it's nice.

Oh my! :O <3 This looks really nice! I'm having a few personality-related/life issues with my current artist and I think that she might back down from drawing the sprites for my story. >.<

I would need a total of 7 though, so how much would you charge me for the next 5 if your drawings would fit well with the feel of the story? xDD

@GeneDNC:
Thank you very much!
Sure; take all the time you need. ^_^ The spot's yours.
I'll answer your question along with ElenaKiara's.

@Tsundere Lightning:
Great! I'll start on them.
Love the details; enough to get a good picture, but enough to give me leeway.
They sound like interesting characters; I'm eager to see the story that comes with them.

@ElenaKiara:
Thank you!
I'm sorry to hear about your artist, but...

Wow, really? Commission?! I didn't expect that. :D
In all honesty, I've never done a commission before.
Since it'll be my first time, I'll start small.
How does $5 each sprite sound?
EDIT: Each sprite would be 1 pose and 6 expressions.

That's a better price than I could get at other places! Will commission slots stay open? *o_o*
Grand list of things not officially canceled:
Salt -- the heartwarming story of brain-eating space worms
Tangent -- an epic poem and/or novel about a borderline-autistic Martian imp and her relationship with God
Kittens of the Darned -- a grimdark soap opera about sexy catgirls (Indefinitely postponed until I learn to draw and color realistically)
The Other Mary -- the most perfect fic about the most perfect Mary Sue EVER
Rockheart -- a short story about a monster who kills everyone
Corrupted -- a completely different short story about a monster who kills everyone (late Worst Visual Novel Ever)
Checkpoint 36a -- the transcription of a short multi-ending dream about time travel and undead schoolgirls
In Which the Princess is Kidnapped -- an entry in the "ordinary girl ends up in an alien universe and tries to save it" genre
Pictogram Scramble: Magical Friendship Bunny Ivy -- a Flash game about a magical girl making friends (Indefinitely postponed until I learn how friendship works)

Your bishies are very ... bishie. <3

I caught this in time to snag a slot, but I decided against it. I'd want more than 2 sprites from you, so I do encourage you to build a portfolio and get comfortable with commissions, because you'll have business. Of course, with paid art, timing is a bit more important so gauge yourself to see if you work at a decent speed or not.

Also, $5 for a fully colored sprite with 6 expressions is too cheap. I'd recommend $10 as a base for that deal, and don't forget to specify how much of the character you will draw (waist-up, thigh-up, etc) and in what style (sketch, inked, inked+colored) for different prices.

@Glasskitten:
Perhaps, but probably not at these prices. :) Like I said, I'm just starting out, so I wanted to start relatively small.
Most artists I've looked at charge 15-35 per sprite, but I'm a noob with sprite-making, so I won't charge much.
EDIT: If you have something you'd like me to do, pm me and maybe we can work something out. ^_^

@Aleema:
:D Thank you, and I appreciate the good advice.
Bishie <3

EDIT2: The reason I put at so cheap was because I am so very new to sprite-making. This would be to get my feet wet, but if I do get more commissions, it would be more as I get better, but for these first few people, I can afford $5 sprites.
But again, thank you. :)

EDIT:
@Tsundere Lightning:
How're these? Quick idea sketches.
If there's something you would like changed, go ahead and tell me now.
Are the colors all right? Poses? Hair?
I was most concerned with the hair. Military cuts don't show off curly hair well, but I did what I could with your man.

Image
I like your blue and grey uniform, though I think it might look a little flat. Here's how it looks with some gold trim.

and

Though, what do you think about loose hair?

Once they get your thumbs up, I'll start with inking and final coloring.

That sounds like a nice deal! xDD How much would extra expressions cost? :O

Also, for the first two, could I possibly send you a message so that I don't accidentally reveal any spoilers? xD

Hmmm. For now, how about 50 cents for each extra expression?

Sure, that sounds good. :) Message away.

I very much like the first one - well, the one with gold trim.

When I say 'catgirl' with the other, understand that they're an alien race with feline biology and facial structure - she has a human face! Otherwise it's a very good start, and the uniform is about perfect.
