#Traditional #Digital #Canon #OCs #Discussion #Taking commissions
Hello again, art! I haven't been around as of late, but I'd like to get the ball rolling again! That and money is tight, so yeaaaahhhhh.

I use the GIMP program, with an Intuos 4 Wacom Tablet. I won't be selling prints, just digital works.

For my pony commission, I'm offering sketches, coloured sketches, and digital paintings. Digital Paintings are the big guns, and could take a while to complete, and they'll be the only ones with backgrounds. The amount of characters in a picture will affect prices and the time it would take.

I will only work on up to one commission at a time, since I'm not much of a multitasker.

E-mail me if you want a commission done. I may not always be checking this thread. Paypal is the only payment method I can accept; and my account uses the same e-mail.

Prices
(prices may vary with each request)

Sketches: $10
+$2 per each extra character
+$5 if you want it with cleaned up lineart

Coloured Sketches: $20
+$5 per each extra character
+$10 with extra cleaned up lineart
+$20 for realistic shading and lighting

Paintings: $50+
Prices rise depending on how complicated it would be.
A note to those wanting backgrounds and non-organic objects: I'm still a novice with such things, so please bear that in mind.

Examples below. Please also look at my portfolio and art blog!
http://talaportfolio.blogspot.ca/
http://artoftala.blogspot.ca/

Also, I'll probably just dump some of my own non-commission work in here too, so yeahhh.

Lezdodiz!

Thank you very much! If there's one thing I find important in artwork, it's the emotion it's supposed to express. That and proper weight and fluidity in a character.
>> No. 115797
>>115780
I draw comics, it's kinda my thing. Getting the right emotion across is paramount for the kind of stories I do.

The six basic expressions, anger, joy, fear, disgust, sadness, and surprise, are simple enough. Expressing them with subtlety is a little more challenging.

Byond that, however, are complex emotions... e.g.: Bob will soon be meeting his father, who he hasn't seen in ten years: he's looking forward to seeing him again, but a little afraid of what his father will think of the man he is now, and he's getting nostalgic of their time together on the family farm before Bob went off to college, but mostly he's trying to focus on the road while he's driving. Try putting all that on one face.

Not just faces, for that matter, there's also body language. Heck, I've found hands alone can be just as expressive as the face.

The thing is, with complex emotions, characters seem more like complex people, with complex lives. These kinds of characters can't simply be "read" at a glance, which makes them more interesting and engaging because it takes more time to contemplate and analyze them. Especially when those emotions are contradictory: >>115748 looks happy, sad, and relieved all at once. Shyness, as far as I can tell, is a combination of fear and happiness, as seen in >>114901: happy face, fearful body language.

Getting a character's expression just right usually means having all their features working together. Personally, I don't think that can be done deliberately by thinking through exactly what each individual feature should look like. It's an intuitive sort of thing. To pull it off, an artist needs to possess a natural ease with their tools and a solid familiarity with fundamental theory, so you can draw without thinking about it. Being aware of the rules without being conscious of them. That only comes with experience and specific kind of confidence.

At any rate... I ramble, sorry.

I checked out your portfolio, by the way: beautiful work. I love the birds in page 10, and the portraits on page 8.
