Hand-drawn portraits v 2.0 (in Services)


chaosal March 16 2009 9:46 AM EDT

for reference, v 1.0, v 1.5, my deviantart

Base cost: 500k, subjective based on your enjoyment of the finished product.
Standard product and procedure: pencil sketch, submitted for your review; any requested changes made and resubmitted; inked version submitted. Color or backgrounds available, but cautioned.
Note: Currently all work is done traditionally (i.e. not on computer) but that is subject to change (and free commissions for life to whoever buys me this :P).

The more detail you specify (especially with reference pictures given) the closer it will come out looking like the image in your mind. Anything unspecified is obviously at my discretion.

Please post all descriptions and requests for changes in the thread for easy tracking.

--The changes in version 2.0--

Along with the standard queue, I will also be maintaining a 'silent auction' queue; that is, whoever wants to be on this queue will CM me a bid, which will determine their placement on the queue. I will alternate which queue I am working on, and any customer can only be on one queue at a time.
Note: I reserve the right to limit the number of bids customers can submit to avoid creeping up the list.

Addendum: cash is accepted at a rate of 2m/USD via paypal.

chaosal March 16 2009 12:06 PM EDT

man i'm tired. i meant 2 USD/m

I'd like a picture of Vader inside the cave on Dagoba.

It should be from Luke's perspective, and scary as hell.

Goodfish March 21 2009 11:11 PM EDT

chaosal March 22 2009 12:15 AM EDT

Goodfish: version 2

Goodfish March 22 2009 12:44 AM EDT

You don't know how much I wish I could draw... haha.

chaosal March 22 2009 10:56 AM EDT

and i wish i could draw better :P
but hey, that's why i'm doing this. lots of practice, and (bonus) i get paid :)

i think this one will go well with inking, assuming i don't butcher it.

chaosal March 22 2009 12:19 PM EDT

What I want:

In the style of Gears of War the face and hair.
Big musculair arms and legs.
I want something that looks like plate armor but sleeveless.
Holding a big broad sword in front of him.

Visualize a wall minion in CB.

For armor in this style: http://i40.tinypic.com/2gtcfoy.jpg

this one will be interesting, never drawn vader before.
should be fun :)

chaosal March 25 2009 5:39 PM EDT

novice: version 1

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] March 25 2009 5:53 PM EDT

That Vader is wicked awesome!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 25 2009 7:02 PM EDT

I'm very happy with it. I will say the face gets hidden when it's shrunk down to icon size, and the oddities in the cape get more pronounced. As a first version it's super awesome!

chaosal March 25 2009 8:11 PM EDT

nothing that can't be fixed

thanks for the feedback- seeing people enjoy my work is what makes it worthwhile. the payment doesn't hurt, either :)

chaosal March 25 2009 11:22 PM EDT

novice: version 2

should be a bit more noticeable... let's see how it looks :)

chaosal March 26 2009 6:10 PM EDT

novice: version 3

inked just the character, sharpened the image up to make it pop at character pic size.

woot, your drawings are quite nice indeed! and my request is coming slowly closer :)

chaosal March 27 2009 11:04 AM EDT

thanks! hopefully things will smooth out soon and I'll be able to make better progress...

also, if there's no further interest in it, I'll close the alternate queue after I'm done with zenai's pic.

stupid spellcheck, making me capitalize the i in I'll and I'm. grr.

chaosal March 31 2009 11:32 PM EDT

well Henk I've got your first version done, but until my computer is fixed i can't upload. I'll let you know as soon as that happens.

chaosal April 2 2009 6:49 PM EDT

finally

henk: version 1

chaosal April 3 2009 1:54 AM EDT

henk: version 2

any comments or other feedback?

MonkeyMandate [Wasting Time] April 3 2009 2:14 AM EDT

Its close to mine so i'll just post here what i would like since the cm has been deleted.

Character should be similiar to maid guy from the anime kamen no maid guy, without the mask.
Should be weilding a weapon similiar to the dragon slayer in the manga berserk.
And would then like it in some sort of ready stance, basically whatever looks best.

chaosal April 3 2009 2:25 AM EDT

i remember that description. thanks for posting it here- it makes things much easier.

henk: version 3

Brakke Bres [Ow man] April 3 2009 2:38 AM EDT

Aah yes, very nice :)

AdminTal Destra [G6] April 3 2009 1:15 PM EDT

chaosal April 3 2009 4:44 PM EDT

zenai: preliminary design

Zenai April 9 2009 11:53 PM EDT

First I have to say you have got talent bro, It is Very close to what I was picturing!

Now for the changes:

1) Make the Cape Longer, add a Rune trim on it like in the picture I sent to you Dark Wisdom. Do the same to the trim around the Waist.

2) Make the Blade itself a bit more slender, long and the Connection between Blade and Hilt a little thicker. This Blade reflects my VB The Sword of Truth which is a Top 10 Blade in its Class. Maybe just a bit more Elegance to the Blade :)

3) Remember I wanted a belt with Pouches like in the picture I sent you Twilight. The Wolf head was a Chest piece but Im liking it as a belt buckle just as much so Im kinda in the middle on that. I would still like something on the Chest though maybe a Kenji or......I guess use your imagination....lol

4) Last Second Request if you would add a bow to the Right hand. This is to reflect the MSKer I have now Truth Seeker. It is a Top 10 Bow in its Class so it Should look Mean just remember I am a fan of Runes....lol

I know I have added and taken away from this pic but I have to tell you not many ppl get this close the first time Very Well Done!

chaosal April 10 2009 1:58 AM EDT

zenai: prelim 2

yeah i had totally forgotten about the pouches :P

Zenai April 10 2009 2:06 AM EDT

Very Nice Bro.....Make the bow a little bigger and nasty and maybe an Amulet for the Chest (I just really wanted something there....lol) and I'd say done deal! Very Nice!

chaosal April 10 2009 7:44 AM EDT

not a problem. the bow was smaller than i wanted- ran out of space on the page. on the A4 that shouldn't be a problem.
