Hand-drawn portraits (in Services)

chaosal February 10 2009 12:48 PM EST

100k per character, +250k for backgrounds, +50% for inked
Be as descriptive as possible regarding:
Check out my deviantart account for examples.
My home computer is mostly non-functional at the moment, thus everything will be hand-drawn.

Note: First customer gets their order at half price, since it will take a bit longer (as I will need to set up my scanner and things).

Andy February 10 2009 12:54 PM EST

If this is first then:

I would like mine to be a male:

Muscular xP
He would be resting on the handle of a huge sword, kinda like Cloud's one with a straight blade. He is wearing a robe and whatever armour you feel like drawing. And over half his body is a cloak. Some crazy hairstyle is fine and that's it really xD

chaosal February 10 2009 1:03 PM EST

I got three requests, almost simultaneously so they'll all be given that deal. No limit as to the waiting list, but it is exactly that- the longer the list, the longer the wait. Here is the list as it stands:
  1. Tal Destra
  2. Ranger
  3. Andy

Mesoshort February 10 2009 1:04 PM EST

Awh second no fair -pouts- I would like female, elven face and body, long hair, reading a book and (if you can) casting a spell with the other hand. Style? I like the style from the "two year" picture you had posted. Pose? Well she's reading and casting a spell so I would assume standing :D Armor? Cloth with stomach exposed and a skirt that shows the outer thighs but covers down the legs all the way to the feet in the middle (like a "V"). Kind of examples: Books: http://tinyurl.com/d8ufa8 http://tinyurl.com/cs76m9 Hair: http://tinyurl.com/amstah Clothes (top wise, can't find skirt to help you out): http://tinyurl.com/bmsjpb Let me know how much :)

AdminTal Destra [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] February 10 2009 1:08 PM EST

okay for mine its going to be a lot of hassle hehe...

not really but if you look here
it should give you a rough outline, i just want it to me more masculine, muscular, with a bow and arrow(mageseeker if you will)

QBOddBird February 10 2009 1:15 PM EST

I have something slightly different - a character portrait for my Cybergeneration character. I've already drawn him out, I'd just like to see him neatened up and inked into colour.

Colours requested:
Dark Grey, nearly black, on the darkened half of the mask
Black and brown stripes on the jacket
Dark brown pants, nearly black
Black bowtie
White Undershirt
Black shoes
Black sword scabbard
Black and light brown alternating triangles on the hilt
Red ribbon coming from the end of the hilt

and if you could improve that godawful hair I drew on his head, or my excessively long legs, by all means, be my guest. :)

chaosal February 10 2009 1:29 PM EST

Updated list, really more for my own reference :)
  1. Tal Destra: this, more masculine, muscular, with mageseeker
  2. Ranger: muscular human ranger, bow, 2blade axe. BG-forest
  3. Andy: muscular male, buster sword, robe w/armor, half-covered by cloak, crazy hair
  4. MesoinLove: female elf, long hair, reading and casting. Style-'two year', double-split dress bare midriff Ref-book book hair clothes(top)
  5. urp: this
  6. Correct me if any of this is wrong or I left out an important detail.

BluBBen February 10 2009 1:36 PM EST

I'll get in line for a picture! I'll give you details later.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 10 2009 3:44 PM EST

I also have something slightly different to request. I am currently collecting avatar art on Gaia, and would like a piece from you to display in my showcase if you do not mind.

I would love it to be either colored or lightly shaded. I don't mind if the dragon type thing is on my head, but I would like the cloud under me.
Here are the pieces I've already had done, in case you were looking for examples:

Example 1
Example 2
Example 3

Of all those examples, the first is my favorite :)
Thanks in advance!!

chaosal February 10 2009 8:00 PM EST

No problem. I'll CM you each when I'm about to start on your portrait.

7. Hakai

chaosal February 11 2009 11:35 AM EST

Tal Destra: version 1

continuing work on the next few while discussing revisions

kevlar February 11 2009 12:36 PM EST

I'd like to get in line for this :)

chaosal February 11 2009 1:10 PM EST

Certainly. I just wish I could draw faster without reducing quality :P
8. Kevlar

Also, update: Tal Destra Version 2 (body)

Wasp [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] February 11 2009 1:16 PM EST

Can you draw a cartoon Wasp....?

chaosal February 11 2009 1:43 PM EST

I can give it a shot, and if you don't like it you don't have to pay. how's that?

Tal Destra: Final version
Updated list:
  1. Ranger
  2. Andy
  3. Meso
  4. urp
  5. BluBBen
  6. Hakai
  7. Kevlar

chaosal February 11 2009 3:49 PM EST

Ranger: colored

eh... it's up to you guys whether you want it colored or not, but i'm not a huge fan of how my colors turn out.

Unappreciated Misnomer February 11 2009 5:52 PM EST

wicked stuff!

GnuUzir February 11 2009 6:38 PM EST

Wow man that is pretty dern good ;-)

chaosal February 11 2009 7:19 PM EST

thanks, I've been needing a reason to draw- this works well :)

QBOddBird February 11 2009 7:30 PM EST

Wow dude, you're quick. I was not expecting such rapid progress through your queue!

chaosal February 11 2009 9:24 PM EST

when i have a target, it seems to go easier. the better the description, the faster and more efficiently the process goes.

Andy: version 1

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- February 11 2009 9:40 PM EST

I'll pay extra for what I want if need be.

I am looking for a picture composed of three people. Two "support" characters flanking the
third. Kind of one character in the middle standing proud, while one kind of kneels behind him/to the side, and the other kind of
jumping out on his right, think marval super
heroes. The one on the left sort of 'using'
Chains like hes "roping" something, and the one on the right casting an "AMF" The two supporters elvish in appearance, while the one in the middle more masculine and 'proud'

The one in the middle needs to be holding out a "shard" in his hand that flames are sort of spewing from "Robf" and a huge royal shield that hes kind of leaning on. slightly smirking

the main character with the whole plate mail sort of look but with a 2008 CB t-shirt on

This is open to interpretation. Name the price, you're very talented so feel free to kind of just go with the basic scheme

It's basically my toon "The Beasty" with the main robf character and the two support roles.


{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- February 11 2009 9:42 PM EST

Sorry for the dbl post. If possible in color//ink. Thanks. (lots of glow where applicable (I like colors :D))

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 11 2009 10:17 PM EST

At 1:56ish in the following youtube video, you get a decent image of what I'm looking for: Link 1

At 2:18 in this video, I'd like some sort of similar effect with the flaming eyes: Link 2

Also, I like the armor style in the second one a little better, if you can find a good look of it (1:44 onward you can see the armor)

Weapon: 2 handed war hammer (head of hammer imbued with fire)
Armor: Seen in video, also: Image
Attributes: Bald, Iron headband. Large in overall stature.
Pose: Rising from one knee, spell book in hand
Style: Kind of dark, most of the colors red-ish with darker armor.
Background: Transparent, or solid color.

Can I join the que? I let you know what I want at a later date.

chaosal February 12 2009 11:39 AM EST

At the moment, Meso's piece is taking my full concentration- I'm not great at females :P

-cackles evily- Myuahaha my rediculously circuitous plan is one-quarter complete.

chaosal February 12 2009 11:56 AM EST

hm... maybe i should get some faster hands...

chaosal February 12 2009 2:00 PM EST

chaosal February 12 2009 2:01 PM EST

urk. make that 12.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- February 12 2009 2:50 PM EST

You should charge more ^^

chaosal February 12 2009 2:57 PM EST

lol- i was just talking to someone about that.
maybe just to prevent the list from overloading too much...

not much more- 250k/char +500k/bg still seems quite reasonable.

Mesoshort February 12 2009 3:27 PM EST

Mesoshort February 12 2009 3:27 PM EST

Or you could make it a limit of 10-15 per post and then close to more offers until you are ready to do more. I am willing to pay don't get me wrong ;) I want meh picture O_O

Brakke Bres [Ow man] February 12 2009 4:14 PM EST

Don't hurry yourself too much, don't want speed at the cost of quality

chaosal February 12 2009 4:22 PM EST

I wasn't intending to raise the rates for those who are already on the list; that feels like changing the agreement. I meant for new orders.

Fortunately, I'm not having to rush. I suppose that's the good thing about open-ended projects :)

chaosal February 12 2009 6:15 PM EST

I should probably make a new thread with the new prices...

Andy: Version 2

chaosal February 12 2009 7:31 PM EST

Meso: Meso

took me an inordinate amount of time to decide on the pose and such... lol

QBOddBird February 13 2009 3:21 AM EST

I have discovered a hair preference! I don't know if you can make it. But this hair would be awesome.

chaosal February 13 2009 8:12 AM EST

it's good to have something to go on; even if I can't get it quite right it will be closer to what you have in mind.

MonkeyMandate [Wasting Time] February 13 2009 9:03 AM EST

BluBBen February 14 2009 1:38 PM EST

Can you please take me off your list? You will not lack work anyway :-D

QBOddBird February 14 2009 2:05 PM EST

This is turning out great, well beyond my expectations! :D Thanks so much!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 14 2009 4:30 PM EST

Wow, I really like OB's designs. Looking sharp there, Perron! ^_~

I think the striped suit in v.2 gives the mask on the face better contrast. :)

chaosal February 14 2009 5:12 PM EST

I suppose, I acknowledge my style has flaws :)
Particularly females, and pencil seems to be my main medium- anything else and the quality drops. Fortunately inking isn't too far off.

I'm beginning to think I should have just said 'pay me what you think it's worth' :P

chaosal February 16 2009 11:38 AM EST

didn't really make any progress over the weekend; I'm hoping to finish up urp's piece tonight

chaosal February 16 2009 7:57 PM EST

urp: inked with standard ballpoint 0.7

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 16 2009 8:00 PM EST

That's gorgeous!! :o

The hairstyle is meh to me, but it seems to be what OB wants, so I think you made him a very happy CGen player!! I can't wait to see mine!! /excitement~!!

chaosal February 16 2009 8:11 PM EST

i tried to approximate the hair, but it's definitely not the style i'm used to drawing...

and btw you are aware i'm not good at females? lol

i will give it my best :)

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] February 16 2009 8:15 PM EST

That's ok. :) That's why I sent you examples so you had something to use as a base ^_^

QBOddBird February 16 2009 10:04 PM EST

Thanks chaosal! Great art! :D

chaosal February 16 2009 10:12 PM EST

thank you very much. must say i'm pretty happy with how that one turned out.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 17 2009 11:51 AM EST

That's awesome. I may comission you to make one, once your finished with some of the ones on your list. ;)
