Wow, you're pretty talented. Ever think about offering to make clean sprites at higher prices, like $50-70? It might suit you.

But I'm not so sure about these:

Think you'd be able to maintain the level of quality in the top four linked images for a cast of about 12 characters, 50/50 male and female, aged from 19 to 65? Most important thing for me is whether or not you can do male characters just as well as your females. The male renders you've provided aren't quite my cup of tea, but I assume you have a much larger portfolio than what you've shown here. Definitely interested, just need more assurance and data.

Re: {free!} Let me draw something for you! [0/9 slots filled

#6 Post by aqua » Fri Dec 16, 2016 6:17 am

I've temporarily changed the function of this thread, if anyone is interested!

In honor of Facelord, who commented above (thanks, once more!): Anybody requesting males will drastically up the likely hood of my accepting if the characters in question aren't pretty boys. I've drawn too many slim pretty boys in recent years. Challenge me, okay? ♥ Beefy & rugged is what I'm most interested in trying atm.

Ooh! I have a request! The standard archetypal manly protagonist: Bruce Wayne.

My recommendation: do him off memory, don't base him on a specific pre-existing design of the character - interested parties wanna see an interpretation in your own style. Just be sure to show a reasonably muscular build - decent biceps, large upper body, that sorta thing.

Thanks for the interest and kind words everyone!! ♥ I've added you all to the list and marked those slots as 'taken'. (Since specifics weren't requested in the case of the two character applications, I chose the slots myself!) I'll be sending out messages to everyone who's applied & been accepted later on with questions and/or requests for references where applicable.

4 more openings left!

Hi, Banya! Thank you so much. ♥ Please do feel free to PM anytime! I'm currently talking with another user about one of the remaining slots, but they haven't yet decided which they preferred. That being the case, I'll reserve both slots with you two in mind.

And to everyone who's still awaiting messages from me - holidays and other obligations have made me slow down, but I will be getting to everyone after the new year!

I appreciate your patience until then. Have a happy new year, everyone! ^^

Whoo, 2016 is over! Now all the surviving celebrities get to live forever.

I'm excited to see the results of your updated portfolio. I still haven't found the right sprite artist for my project, but you're one of the few I'm considering. Just want to see some assurance that you'd be a good fit, since it's a big investment on my part.

Can't wait. °w°

Hello again, guys! Thank you for the sweet comments - I hope you all enjoyed New Year's! (Please treat us kindly, 2017!)

I'm currently in the process of drawing up individual forms for all those who applied. I should have everything sent within the hour. ^^
