Hey, :) ive just been scrolling through your blog, your stuff is really amazing especially your sketches and your GW2 art. i was just wandering how you managed to do your heads and head-neck- shoulders. Thanks :) <3
thank you very much !!
well i don’t really have any fancy tricks to teach you guys and while i have a general process, i adapt myself a lot depending on the picture !
here’s how i mostly go tho. As example I’ll take the commission i did for styliferous of their gw2 character Lilisephona
1. Sketch, more or less defined depending on what i need
Spomin really loves to sing and sometimes even comes up with the songs by themself.
oh man that is really cool i bet they sing super well
Music is kind of a big part of cith’s life, more specifically rhythm. He loves dancing and singing. He also often finds himself mindlessly beating some kind of rhythm against something with his fingers or whatever he finds, humming some song to it.
He carries a harmonica with him through his travels and plays it quite often !
A fact: Somniver the salad had changed phisically when he realised what was his wyld hunt. now your turn!)
physical change for a character is always interesting ! (espe for a wyld hunt like i kinda want to hear that story now haha)
here’s for Aodh who also changed a bit during his life mostly because he used to be way more ‘feral’ and lived alone in the Caledon forest for quite a while. One of the reasons was because he was really uneasy around people in general
tho he had other physical changes later through his life but here’s the big one i guess !
01. Full name: Aodh 02. Best friend: Latù ( @zellkabellk‘s oc :9 ) 03. Sexuality: pansexual/demiromantic 04. Favorite color: persian orange, ecru, avocado and olive 05. Relationship status: single 06. Ideal mate: he doesn’t have any precise idea in mind because he probably never thought of an ‘ideal type of person’ but I’d say someone not too intrusive, faithful, that believes in him and supports him 07. Turn-ons: exposed collarbones/neck, extra tenderness (touches and words), gentle whispers, the feeling of multiple kisses on his stomach and hips, exchanging looks during sex > though those apply more to the person he likes than in general 08. Favorite food: any edible roots but particularly ginger 09. Crushes: / (he might have or have not had a crush on Trahearne laughs) 10. Favorite music: chill/indie music, he also likes the sound of guitars, flutes and deep voices. He enjoys songs in acapella quite a bit too 11. Biggest fear: being responsible of any of his companion’s death or doing a major mistake as the Pact’s commander 12. Biggest fantasy: rn killing Mordremoth, going back home safe with everyone and getting some reasonable amount of sleep hAH 13. Bad habits: internalizing all of his troubles and taking a lot on himself 14. Biggest regret: all moments in the past where he wasn’t able to act/talk because of his shyness feel like a big regret to him 15. Best kept secrets: he’s kind of a secretive person to begin with i can’t really find one (if he ever has feelings for someone though i sure know that he’s going to keep it secret for a lonngggg time) 16. Last thought: ‘i had so much left to do’ 17. Worst romantic experience: when he was younger, someone he was close to tried to flirt with him, shit got physical and Aodh wasn’t interested at all. The person kinda invaded his privacy this way. It just made Aodh very uncomfortable and upset at the person, thus things got really awkward between them. Later he wasn’t able to talk it out with them so the situation just stayed that way :^( 18. Biggest insecurity: his face features for a while but overall, talking to a big audience. That’s something he learned to do becoming the Pact’s commander but he sure went through some troubles with it (to this day, his speeches are still rather short and to the point) 19. Weapon of choice: longbow & warhorn 20. Role Model: all of his companions are his inspirations
