no i didn't draw the arms all the way

anonymous asked:

Would you ever consider drawing a thicker Lavellan? I love Nalia so much- but it would be really cool to see a Lavellan who didn't have a thigh gap or thin arms, just for representations sake. Nalia is perfect in literally every way and this is not at all meant as a criticism!! I love her deeply and aspire to like... look like her lol. Your art is so phenomenal!

of course!! and thank you!! I agree it is harder to find characters with body types that differ from the game default especially with elves, I’m guilty of this too 😖 Inquisitor requests are always open if you wish to send me yours to draw when I have some free time btw!

An actual conversation I had with my artist friend
  • Tobi: sometimes I wish people were just like expressionless blobs
  • Tobi: that'd be
  • Tobi: pretty
  • Tobi: easy to draw
  • Doku: Pff yes XD
  • Doku: But boring
  • Tobi: Also very true
  • Doku: And you wouldn't be able to draw in first place since you're also a blob
  • Tobi: and how do you draw various variations of expressionless blobs
  • Tobi: OH
  • Tobi: THIS IS VERY TRUE
  • Doku: How does blob hold a pencil anyway
  • Tobi: they stick the pencil in themselves and kind of wiggle around idk
  • Doku: :D
  • Doku: Who made the pencil if everyone's a blob? :D
  • Tobi: Also true
  • Tobi: we wouldn't even have them
  • Tobi: let along the internet
  • Tobi: or computers
  • Tobi: for that matter
  • Tobi: fuck, now I'm very glad people are complicated to draw
  • Doku: The price of drawing humans with four limbs and such is small :D
  • Tobi: This is also very true
  • Tobi: what if
  • Tobi: people where still people but just didn't have arms or legs
  • Tobi: and used their mouth for like
  • Tobi: everything
  • Doku: Mm evolution would cause our jaws to develop in a completely different way
  • Doku: And nothing would be tall, all chairs are directly on the floor and such
  • Tobi: Crap you're right
  • Tobi: plus if everyone's jaws evolved
  • Tobi: then
  • Tobi: jaws would probably
  • Doku: BE MORE COMPLICATED TO DRAW AM I RIGHT
  • Tobi: OMF
  • Tobi: THAT'S WHAT I WAS ABOUT TO SAY
  • Doku: Just be happy with what we have XD
  • Tobi: I realize this now
