Will do Character Sketches for you!
« on: January 12, 2017, 04:38:12 AM »
I love doing character sketches for people :) If anyone is interested, I just do it for fun and to practice. Graphite only. Please provide:

Character Name:
Character Age:
Description (the more detailed, the better):
Personality:
Preferred clothes:

I won't shy from doing creatures or settings either. I do like a good challenge.

sample quick sketch of my character Quinlan:

Oooh, I'm going to have to think about this...I have a general idea of what my two main characters would look like, but I would really need to think about their descriptions. But I might take you up on it!

Do you just do the sketches or do you color them in as well, like in Photoshop?

Oh, awesome! I'm so bad at profiles =___= And Shading. I basically stick to pure-Manga style.

If you need some stuff to practice, I'd be happy to give you one or two of my species (humanoid). I'll post it later. (:

I mostly do sketches... some days watercolor, or colored pencil (that less often). And yes, sometimes I do digital art, so if you really want to see something in color, let me know :)

Hooray!

Yes please! I definitely have some characters you can draw :D I love to see what people get from their descriptions.

For now though, I'll give you someone simple ;) I'd love to see him in colour if you are in the mood, if not b/w is fine :)

Character Name: Jascha Anastos
Character Age: 30s
Description (the more detailed, the better): He's Greek. Mediterranean skin tone, thick black hair in wiry curls to his shoulders (typical sort of hair for that area). Heterochromia; left eye blue right eye light green. Jaw line, quite a strong jaw, and a long chin, almost typical greek-y, but not too square, he more on the "pretty boy" side. Flat slight wide nose. Cupid's bow lips, top lip thinner than bottom.
Personality: Ha! Flirtatious, lusty, shows off (especially his magic), is vain, but is also friendly, and looks out for people. Caring, and will do a lot for those he cares about. Is super scared about commitment and will make him run away, and also hides his true feelings ESPECIALLY anything to do with love.
Preferred clothes: Casual-Smart. I'm not 100% sure what he'd actually wear.

The others which might be interesting are an androgynous male, a shapeshifter (who turns into animals) who has her skin, eye, and hair colour constantly changing (challenge? :P), or even a guy with skin so thin you can see loads of blood vessels.

Usually I'm content to draw my own characters, but sometimes I like to see how other people interpret them. So here goes...

Character Name: Takhaet
Character Age: 25
Description: She is an African woman of Kemetic (ancient Egyptian) ethnicity, with dark brown skin and dreadlocks tied into a sort of ponytail. Wears a necklace of golden flies (like these) which would have been a sort of military medal in the ancient Egyptian culture, as well as an ankh amulet. Has a trained military background, so she has a lithe yet muscular physique.
Personality: Fiercely protective of her little niece Nebet, and defiant of the "heretic" Pharaoh Akhenaten's persecution of the traditional Egyptian religion.
Preferred clothes: Linen loincloth and undershirt, with an exposed midriff.

Alright, you'll have to let me know how I did with him. When hair is involved... I get way too excited :)

Well if you're begging you can have another of mine :P

Character Name: Dominn
Character Age: He has no age. But appearance he looks around 60
Description (the more detailed, the better): Hazel eyes, sandy coloured hair, skin so pale and transparent you can see the blood vessels quite easily. A plain face, nothing really stands out (he wants to blend in as best as he can :P)
Personality: Pretty nonexistent. He's around to ensure fate goes according to plan and to keep it on line. Whatever it takes, including murdering whoever.
Preferred clothes: Plain clothes, no strong colours, though not something like tshirts. Tbh I have always struggled with clothes and he used to wear a tunic like thing but I dont know if that'd work now :/ so surprise me
