B-Donk's Art Request Thread (Queue currently closed!)

QUEUE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR THE TIME BEING!
There's a ton of folks in there right now and she'd like to at least get a chance to get it at least below double digits before more folks get added. Folks can still talk and do whatever and whatnot, but please hold requests until we're open again!


(I posted this in it's own thing because I didn't want to clutter up the existing art thread with a bunch of stuff from one person, even if it's been mostly idle! If admins have issue with that, please, move by all means!)

So, my wife draws a fair bit, and sometimes, she looks for prompts based on stuff she wouldn't normally seek out on her own! She's also expressed interest in drawing simple sketches of folks from SS13, as she tried out /tg/ before and while it wasn't really her thing, she still thinks it's pretty darn interesting.

So here's how it goes! Folks can post requests of their characters, either here or to my Skype (Both at BangingDonk), and every once in a while, she'll scoop up three or four of 'em and draw em. Preference is given to folks who haven't had their character(s) drawn yet, but you can submit folks as you please. Please keep it to SS13 /tg/ servers, though. NOTE: I just found out that I can't actually copy and paste from Byond which basically makes it worthless for this. Please stick to the forums either in this thread or via PM or Skype!

For request stuff, there's some stuff that's helpful!
  • Character name (and optionally Byond key).
  • Most archetypical outfit for the character.
  • Basic physical characteristics, like approximate height, weight, build, skin tone, eye color, that sort of thing.
  • Common props that go along with the character, like stun batons, crowbars, honk-burgers.
  • For lizards, if you've got an unusual snout shape, head crests, if you have ears at all, tail style, and whether or not you're plantigrade or digitigrade.
  • A little about their personality, or a couple of keywords to work with when doing the image like "Stern" or "Turbonerd".
  • Photo references are pretty helpful too, even if they're as simple as just a snapshot of their current sprite, just for color matching purposes.
Dunno how long this will go on for, but she's already done a couple so I figure that it's worth putting a semi-permanent repository out there for things!

Currently in the Queue:
None! We did it! Watch this space for openings later!

Holy shit this are amazing! I really like her style too. Does she do anything illustrator related for a living or is this just an awesome talent she has?

Does she have a website or anything where I could see more of her work? I'd be interested to see some.
I'll definitely be applying for the list when it gets opened again!


EDIT: Might as well stick my app here:

Character name (and optionally Byond key): Nomi Dealen (peoplearestrange)
Most archetypical outfit for the character: Head Of Security
Basic physical characteristics, like approximate height, weight, build, skin tone, eye color, that sort of thing. Fairly slim and wirey, tallish. seems to be tough despite her lanky apperence (think tank girl)
Common props that go along with the character, like stun batons, crowbars, honk-burgers.:laser rifle or e-gun. Red sec beret. Sec-Hud Glasses.
A little about their personality, or a couple of keywords to work with when doing the image like "Stern" or "Turbonerd". A punky kid who's fairly relaxed but won't take no shit. Enjoys bringing in the greytiders with pleasure and enjoys people giving her a reason for a bit of shit-sec bruality.

Brief Q&A stuff!


Image
A lot of folks have asked about some of her influences and whatnot. I know that when I describe a lot of SS13 stuff, I tend to put it through the lens of Paranoia, especially the XP edition, just in the sense of this Orwellian slapstick routine. It's not the sole influence, but it definitely colors things to some degree.

The tools of the trade so far have been a sketchbook and mechanical pencil, followed up by a tiny bit of postprocessing of the scan itself in PS4 to get rid of any grainy crap that got picked up by the scanner, and the color work and any line retouching in Clip Studio Paint.

Folks are free to do whatever they like with the sketches, short of shitty things like saying they drew it and/or trying to make money off of it somehow or something. C'mon, don't be a shit.

While she doesn't do it professionally, she's been drawing for most of her life, and does a darn fine job of it in my opinion. She takes commissions, too.

For example: a smaller version of one of her more finished pieces from a few years back.

B-Donk, I know I've told you before, but your wife is an amazing artist and captures these characters wonderfully! I literally lost the ability to breathe for a while after I got my first glimpse of Lisa. I crushed on her hard. All of these characters are awesome!

Something tells me touching the prod part of a stun baton will end poorly for you.

Nonetheless I actually quite like the way Lizard's are made. I've read several times before from people that Human's offer less creative freedom in drawing than non-humans/aliens do.

Except clear is the one thing it's not. My monitor contrast isn't great and the fact that it's the lightest part of the picture meant it was the only detail I flat out did not see.
