★ Important Terms for ILLUSTRATION Projects ★
⚠️ WHAT I WILL AND WILL NOT DRAW
Illustration style will always be an edgy, cartoony/comic book-ish style. I do not do realism. Quickest at drawing animals, anthropomorphic characters, monsters, objects (clothing accessories, electronics, etc.) Slower when it comes to anatomically correct humans, landscapes, mecha, vehicles because they are more complex.
▧ WILL DRAW
- Fan Art - Original Characters - Anthropomorphic - Low to Moderate Mecha - Vehicles - Backgrounds - Landscapes
▧ WILL NOT DRAW - NSFW (including nudity) - Heavy Mecha - Realism - 100% Proper Anatomy / Perspective / Lighting / Complex Backgrounds - Cityscapes
⚠️ CREATIVE DIRECTION INPUT & Interpretation
I want to be transparent before we begin. Please be aware that I retain all creative freedom with each piece when commissioning work. Meaning you get very little input in the creative process. At most, you provide references for things like the concept, pose, color schemes, and themes, but ultimately, the commission service is My Interpretation of those things in my style. I am not good at drawing other people's visions, and when forced out of my comfort zone, it's hard for me to put forth my best effort that you deserve.
My interpretation can include simplifying shapes or shifting colors to convey how I perceive a style. Color Shifting Will Occur. I do have a vision problem that alters the way I see color. To ensure that all hues and color vibrancies stay consistent in my art, I "color pick" from premade color pallets of a limited range. (For example, I would interpret and translate three different shades of green as the same green.)
If your project requires your exact vision (instead of an interpretation) or pinpoint precise color, someone other than me will be a good fit for your project. Thank you kindly for understanding 💙
⚠️ REFERENCES REQUIRED OR I WILL TURN DOWN ORDER
Collect some references! Reference materials in the form of photographs, sketches or artwork, reference sheets, video game avatars, etc., will aid in communicating your needs for the project and getting it done faster! I am a visual learner and require imagery; therefore, I will turn down any requests that do not include uploaded reference materials. (You will have a chance to upload references in section 4 of the Order Sheet.)
