They should know he's a guy by now but anyways how are u doing today ?
// Well between dealing with a handful of people stealing, tracing, and otherwise reposting my art, telling me I’m wrong for politely calling them out and handling it like an adult in DMs, trying to help handle the #savebendy bullshit, people ripping off my designs for Lendy & Acute & Alice, having my characters misgendered repeatedly after already making a post on the matter, being insulted directly to my face on a handful of servers, handling some personal drama, and generally feeling alone in groups of people (not their fault) I’ve been… okay. Mostly just extremely tired and admittedly a bit pissy. I haven’t hardly eaten this week and today I can’t stop so if I don’t post a lot its because I’ve made myself sick, sorry in advance.
So. I want to ask a thing. How did you come up with the designs you chose for the characters?
God damn, that’s a hard question to answer! There are a lot of facets that go into character design… and hell, a lot of it can be summed up as “because it felt/looked right.”
Of course, the base of all their designs came first and foremost from the Yogscast’s various Minecraft skins, then it was supplemented with aspects of various fanart/fancannon the fans of created for Yogs. Naturally there where some other outside influences (I watch a lot of Anime and American cartoons for example,) but I tried my best to keep close to the core of the characters.
In general for drawing them I had three steadfast rules.
Each character can only have a max of three colours (plus Black & White). No one will mistake one character for another and colour choice with the silhouettes will be my first step!
I hate drawing legs & feet at the best of times. Everyone gets black legs. No exceptions.
No one gets any skin colour of any kind. I want the characters to pop out on screen from the backgrounds, and skin tones will eat into my colour limit for each character.
Let me give you a few dot point examples of some of the inspirations for some of the character designs…
Figured I’d go ahead and try! Along side the small commissions I already have I’m gonna go ahead and offer some fully body commissions. I’ll keep it brief and easy! I’m willing draw quite a bit so long as it isn’t NSFW. Pony, non-pony, anthro, monster, character design, hell I’ll go ahead and give human a go if you’re willing to go for it. If you’re unsure of something feel more than free to ask!
What I’m offering:
Full Body (shaded), no BG
Extra Characters: $20 Each (max 2 characters a pic)
Example: (it doesn’t have to be anthro this is just the best example without crowding the post)
If you’re interested send me a Submit or a Message with this information:
Character ref: Extra Character(s): (max 2) Additional Info: Email: (need this for paypal invoices!)
I currently don’t have a limit but I’ll do as many as I possibly can. Let me know if you guys have any questions! :3
I finished the dragoon Crest for my Aranea Highwind Cosplay but I want to make this Available for free use for cosplay purposes only since I couldn’t find an actual design of this available. I want to give something to others to use instead of trying to go through hell eyeballing the design. I incorporated what I saw on the figurine and what I saw on her actual character model with a little touch up of my interpretation.
I know that there are probably more accurate ones but I just insisted to make it and share it.
