DANCE MAJORS AU. (Part 1, Part 1.5,Part 2, Part 2.5, Part 3 finale) Contemporary Ballet Dancer Shiro is someone everyone admires and basically Everyone’s Crush™ but he already have his eyes set on a certain new hip-hop dancer recruit next door who’s always wearing red. He doesn’t have the guts to ask him out–at all. However, he asks if he could teach him hip-hop dancing.
Here are the things I WILL NOT do: -NSFW or highly suggestive things (no budging on this one, this is a heck no) -Anthro/animal characters -Excessive gore (I’m good with a little bit, but not a lot) -Complicated designs like full-body armor -Armor in general, it’s not exactly my strong suit -Complicated backgrounds
Things I might do: -Multiple characters (add half the cost again) -Stuff involving blood
Things I am 110% good to do: -OC’s -Fan art -Drawings of someone based off of a photo -A very simple background
Keep in mind that I reserve the right to refuse a commission for any reason
Awesome, how does it work?
me your commission request with details (the more specific the better)
to the email address email@example.com (also I’d like you to include
your tumblr username, it helps me keep track of who you are)
through PayPal. ½ after we’ve agreed on the commission, ½ when I’m
done! PLEASE don’t send me funds until I’ve requested them! PayPal only
likes things being done a certain way, and if we deviate from that, I
can get in a lot of trouble. So I’ll send you an invoice! I can walk you
through payment with invoices if you need me to, don’t worry :D
send you a non-watermarked image, but if you post the picture anywhere,
please credit me! Simply saying “x made by otterbug” is good enough,
and an actual link back to my blog is even better! I also might post a watermarked version of the finished product here on my blog.
You can send me an ask, a message, or an email! I promise I don’t bite
you can’t afford a commission right now, that’s fine! I totally get it!
But if you want to get the word out to others, reblogging this really
This may sound kinda rude, but why do you only use red to sketch?
short story: i like it
long story: it starts from like traditional sketching where red is a really good base colour, like its not very overwhelming to most other colours so you can use it as an initial sketch layer and its very easy to go over with another colour (i usually like a darker red or a blue, depending on what im planning to do with the sketch),, but its also quite striking on its own so if you do like the sketch then you can leave it that way
also when i want to draw clean lines i like to use layout paper and then a regular black pencil, and layout paper is kind of like a more substantial tracing paper, and red is very visible through the layout paper and, unlike if you had had a greyscale sketch under the layout paper, your clean black lines dont get confused with the grey lines underneath
below you can see the initial red sketch with the darker red refinements of the sonny/pete sketch i did yesterday, and also the cleaner lines i did on layout paper afterwards (i wasnt happy with the sketch at this point, so took it into photoshop for another refined layer)
also i have a red sketchbook i started this year, where all the sketches in it are just red, which i decided to do because i wanted to practice filling space, and chose red because i had a nice new red pencil, and love how red looks less scrappy than pencil, and all the sketches come together and flow nicely and the red brings them together as one whole page but doesn’t overwhelm the individual drawing,, i mean DOESNT THAT LOOK COOL????
now, digitally, the choice of red was just initially transferring the technique, like “oh red looks nice on paper, lets do some of that here” but now i really do think that its a good choice,, and to prove my point i edited some of the lil bennys from earlier
black is just a lil plain and bland, yellow is always hard to see and very easily overwhelmed, pink is too loud and overwhelming, blue is probably my second favourite but you cant draw in blue without bringing sadness to the party, and then theres red! soft, good, not overwhelming, easy to get depth of tone, very visible but not dominant, doesn’t evoke any particular emotion so its very versatile (unless of course you use a very harsh red and really try to bring out the anger of the colour and what not), just pure and good and nice
SO PLEASE, people who made it to the end of this long long red nerd out, GO FORTH, TRY RED, HAVE FUN
Mixed up different designs for John came up with this~ [mainly cos of the under cut, I love undercuts and since Matt has one now and CtH John had one…. I just drew him with the hairstyle :’)] Put together the whole sigil design combining couple different references, lettering is witch lettering and it says things :^) It’s there mainly for aesthetics~ This is mostly drawn just for aesthetics :’D
The product of the last few weekends! I wanted to do some smaller Steven Universe prints, and after a suggestion from the husband, I figured I’d try my hand with these! I love the fusions, like goddamn.
I would like to do the rest of the fusions, too, but for now I gotta take a break and work on other designs. At the very least, I’ll have these three with me at my next con! More news on that soon. uvu
