Hi all!

 

I'm back from Winter Vacation and I'm working on more art stuff lately while looking for a job. I'm building a new portfolio I like to call the Moonstone Index which, as of January 1st 2012, will showcase the next stage in my progress as an artist. THe last year, maybe more, I've been working on 'silly' art, just dabbling in things, but not truly committing to new techniques and such. It was a time of learning the boundaries of what I can do, where I can improve, and what I really specialize in. Now, I'd like ot put all that learning into practice with this new portfolio.

 

Your requests and commissions are a part of that. One area of my portfolio will be dedicated to character art and character pieces, so that's where they'll go.

~~~~~~~ Slots ~~~~~~~

1. Closedfor now.

 

2. TheCompleteAnimorph/TCA <--- Egg Commission Slot!***

 

Egg Being Offered: CB Pink -- PAID, thank you! :3

Credit Goes To...: These two dragon are mine, though credit for their personalities partly goes to a friend of mine at school

Full Description of What You Would Like Drawn: My two characters Eisen del'Talisintha and Amaranth Illucia, as dragons, either flying together or walking together through someplace nice. Colors preferred, but black and white would be okay too.

Reference Image Links: Amy http://oi43.tinypic.com/6xt6qe.jpg; Eisen http://i39.tinypic.com/1621k4y.jpg (contains size comparison of the two)

Other Notes: Eisen is social and helpful but has a bad inferiority complex, and his wings are made of brass. The gem on his chest closely resembles an aquamarine. Amaranth (Amy) is very adventurous and in tune with nature, but shy and withdrawn around others until she gets to know them well. The gem on her left hind leg (it's only on her left) closely resembles an amethyst.

 

***This slot has the same rules as below, but instead of waiting for the 1st slot to open, you can trade me an egg or hatchling to get it.

Wishlist: CB Blue Nebula (prefer Female), CB Trio, CB White, CB Black.

Other Auto-Accepts: CB Nebula Alts, Chickens, Yellow Dino, CB Silver, CB Gold, CB Red Dorsal, 4th Gen (or less) Thuweds(esp with interesting bloodline).

I Will Take Offers of: Low Gen Tinsels with a pretty lineage, esp. Gold Tinsels.

 

 

*This Request Slot is first come first serve. First to completely read and fill out the Request form properly will get the available slot. >_>

 

**Please read everything below before making a request so we're both on the same page about what I can and can't do and all that.

Guidelines/Options/Rules/Whatev

I do have some guidelines for the Requester to follow before asking for characters and whatnot:

 

- Only 1 Request Per Person. However, the Egg Commission slot is open to anyone with an Egg ready to trade. I will not take IOUs.

 

- Your request must be of an animal or animal character, be it dragon, gryphon, wolf, etc. Please no humanoids, like furry, anthro, alien, or human characters. I'm only just starting on human-like forms. n_n I'm decent but not good enough to do a cool drawing.

 

- If you want a Dragcave Dragon, you must know for certain than the original artist of the dragon sprite won't mind fan art made of their dragon. Please see the Artist Permissions Thread to look it up. I will look it up too if this is what you're requesting to double check.

 

- I must have a ref sheet to work from OR a very detailed description. I won't go out of my way to ask you about every little detail to get it perfect. I will draw in my own style based on your description. If this was a commission thread (for $), I'd go to whatever lengths to make the drawing how you'll like it, but this is a Request only thread, so this is how it is. So please be detailed. (Even a simple, crudely drawn ref is better than no ref, btw. >_> )

 

- I will draw the animal in my style only, so no requests for "Sonic style" or whatever. >_> I've run into that before, and it's terribly difficult to match an established artists' artwork. I even have trouble with anime, so yeah. :/ My style only. Examples below.

 

- All Requests will be in COLOR. Yaaaay...! Unless you specifically ask for an ink drawing or lineart.

Less YAY for some of you is that your drawing MIGHT be in colored pencil. I dunno why people think Traditional art is inferior these days, cuz it's not, but just felt like I should warn you anyway.

Back in December, my trial with Photoshop ended, and now my only painting program is GIMP, which is only hard to use because I'm not used to it, lol. THEREFORE, I will TRY to do your requests digitally. If I feel like I cannot accomplish in an unfamiliar paint program what I can with colored pencil, I will do colored pencil. The advantage to this? If you would prefer, I can send you your art piece to you via mail if you would like to have it. smile.gif I only ask that you send some bucks for shipping. I believe, with the size pieces I'm working with, it would only be a dollar or two. I will also take BP/GP if you play Aywas. Just PM me to ask about shipping. smile.gif I'm sure we can arrange something.

* Under special circumstances, I'll pay shipping.

 

- You MUST give credit where credit is due. :/ If you post my art somewhere like DA or something, please give me credit as "Dal Marty at Dragcave Forums" or something. If you post to DeviantArt, send me a message. You should also credit the artist who made the dragon you want if you're asking for a Dragcave dragon, or a canon character from an established media. You also should not claim that you made the art or whatever, or trace it, as that is art theft. :/ All the usual Don't Steal My Art rules apply here. Proof you read the guidelines is: Supernova.

 

- Please do not post a Request if the Slot is closed. Taking more than one request makes me feel overworked since it creates pressure to finish and adds another thing to do on my To Do List. So, any Requests posted while the Slot is closed won't count. I realize this sucks because it's possible you might not get a request in unless you're fast enough (like catching eggs, really, lol), but I know how my creativity works and everyone gets the best results if this creativity is stimulated by spontaneous challenges when I'm ready rather than obligations when I'm already busy.

 

-Please know that I might have to close requests if things get too busy IRL. This is why there's only one slot.

 

- The resulting picture will be any composition that I think would work best for your request. So I won't list stuff like "Headshots" or "Full Body" options here. I'll just draw it!

 

- Please use the request form after my Sample pic below to make your request. Please be aware that at this time I am only accepting 1 Request! And 1 Egg Commission!

 

- Only ONE character at a time, and I will not include a background, or it will be a simple one. Proof you read the Rules #2: Siranetti. (<-- name of my betta fish.)

 

- The following is an example of a typical request I'll be doing, as of these changes today.

I don't have a Digital example at the moment yet, but it's basically the same but with digital coloring, lol. I'll get an example up here asap.

 

So, yeah!

 

Now for the Form! Please post a Code version of your finished form in your post too so I can copy/paste into the OP.

Whoa, wonderful art work you have here. The colors you used are so warm and pleasing; I can't help but think of them lying in a den during a snow storm, crackling bonfire made from the charred corpses of brash knights... okay, maybe not so much that last part.

 

Still, great stuff =)

Hi! Thank you very much you guys, and Nine, I appreciate the feedback! biggrin.gif I imagine the same. Either it's sunset and they're at the mouth of the cave cuddling up for sleep, or they're inside with a nice blazing fire. <3

 

Daciana_Adena ---> Your Vampires are inked and are being colored!

 

Aurora-Silver, the request slot was closed when you posted your request and since I'm not keeping a Waiting list, I won't be taking your request. Sorry! >.< I would gladly take it if the slot was open and you were first to post your Request, but this was not the case and there are others waiting for a chance at teh slot, so I need to be fair.

 

Because of that mix up, I've added another bullet to the rules, so it doesn't happen again. I'm so sorry if I gave the impression that I'd be taking Future requests. ):

I'm sure the slot will be filled by the time I've finished posting =o If not, I am surprised

 

Again though, I just love the shadows and play on lights in the Vampire pic. The Male Vampire's markings are especially nice and really stand out. If I can think of something fancy and manage to catch one of the desired eggs, I may be tempted to request =) Until then, just looking at the pretty art for others is a treat.

Full Description of What You Would Like Drawn: first the dragon. it has long and slim body, long tail and feathery wings. basically a winged eastern dragon. it has feathery tail tip and feathers from it's down it's neck. feathers on it's neck, tail and wings are black with light blue tips and stripes. it's eyes are blue and it has long ears. the falcon is a brown bird with black markings. (orly? rolleyes.gif) and the wold is supposed to be completely black in color, it's fur long and shiny. eyes are golden in color. you don't have to draw wolf and/or falcon if you don't want to but I will be grateful if you do. it's all your choice though.

thank you! =D *squeeeee* AND CALL ME DREAM. *not so dangerous look*

 

also, one question: can we request multiple times? I think I MAY request again if I get the egg you are looking for, but that would probably be a bit later. (except if you are taking tinsels. I has bunch of tinsels. I has two silver tinsels waiting for new owner right now tongue.gif)

 

 

if you have trouble with size of the characters, the dragon should be almost twice longer than the wolf, but about the same height. don't make the dragon giant if it's possible |D your choice though
