Ah, thank you! Sorry I've been inactive lately; I've been diverting all of my drawing into practicing metal and robotics so I can actually sell a book. Maybe. Someday. xd.png As a result I'm very behind on requested art, but I'll try and get to them soon!

 

Heh, yeah, I can't draw humans well either, but I'm definitely coming close. Chances are you're the same way and come ten years, you'll be great at drawing all sorts of stuff! It just takes time... a LOT of time. With cats versus dogs, when it comes to cartoony styles it really boils down to where features placed on the face; the face is the most important part of any creature because that's the first thing a viewer will look for, so it can make or break a piece. (Learned that the hard way.)

 

Also @Choppedmint, thanks! Also did you have a request for me? I don't remember. xd.png I'm slow, but there isn't a limit for requests, so if you have one fire away~

Belated update! I'll be on and off sporadically now that summer chores have rolled around, but hopefully it won't interfere with my time to draw.

 

Time to update with rampagingwyvern's next OC! She hasn't responded via PM yet, so I'm hoping I got it right. Still have issues drawing cats, hah hah; you'd think living with them would help with that.

Oh gee, thanks guys! :'D I've added your next request Rainbowlight, and I definitely think you should get into drawing too! You might find you have a nice cartoonish style that works for games like Season After Fall or Child of Light (by the way, found some screenshots of said glowy fox and he's a cute little thing! Makes me want to play the game!), so it's definitely worth branching out your skills. I used to only be good at birds and dragons, until I tried drawing other things; your first sketches will be embarrassing but it's only temporary if you work at it! (Don't be me and not practice, that's problematic.)

 

To add on to what Sock said, if you want you can try grabbing eggs for my wishlist; I have dragon breeds I'm missing on my profile page, but most of them are rares at this point. tongue.gif I can update the OP with other things I'm looking for it if it's needed!

that looks incredible! do you think it would be alright if i drew that myself? crediting everything to you of course

@Rainbowlight: Woo! Yeah, I can't seem to draw anything mammalian without making it just a little cute. xd.png Glad you like it!

 

@CellyBean: Yes, you may, and thank you!

Aw, thanks Ewi! biggrin.gif

 

I've been planning on illustrating my own books (maybe even going to Leven Thumps route with on-page sketches?), so I've been trying some more serious art techniques with texture brushes, careful refinement, proper contrast and colors.... all of that jazz. Since Sock wanted to see a full Nebula, I decided to make that my first attempt!

I don't know how well it turned out... xd.png I've been staring at it for too long.

 

EDIT: Turns out my gamma is all messed up. o: Fixed with the proper image!

May I request my xenomorph oc Xeno? (lame name I know)

She's a catmorph, but I will be using my catmorph design.

My catmorph design will be black fur covering whole body leaving tail, those things on their back and hands. (rarely paws) Xeno has amber eyes, and she has a really long tail, double her body length. (which is not really big). Her ears would also be giant. (almost like a huge kitty) My catmorph designs also includes twin jaw, but the teeth are cat teeth.

Position could be anything you want

=o I didn't really mean to make a real request but LOOK AT THIS. TAKE IN HER FULLY GLORY. Oh my gosh, she's completely gorgeous. So glowy. So amaze.

 

I can't describe the effect you managed here (celestial might be the closest?), but it's absolutely stunning. You definitely pulled this off.

Oh gee, thanks everyone! Yay glows! xd.png Also yay, it looks like a book cover! Progress in the right direction.

 

@Rainbowlight: Okay, so I haven't seen a lot of Xenomorphs (only seen the first Alien movie, really), so I'm not sure what a catmorph is... I did sketch some designs though that might be what you're looking for? I'm struggling with having an even mix of cat and xenomorph without it looking weird though, especially with the eyes, so I want your opinion on two of the designs I thought up:

One has a bit more cat, and the other a bit more xenomorph; these aren't finalized in any way, the actual lines will look tons better. xd.png I'm guessing you want something more like the right design, with maybe a few tweaks??

Well nope.. My design is like a completely catlike xenomorph with some notable things: The twin jaw, the hands and feet (which has no fur on it) and the tail blade.

Xeno's tail should be a lot longer than the normal tail length, as in my design their tails keeps their cat length, but the tail blades have no fur on it to be noticeable.

Edit: Forgot to add this, but the shoulder thingies is another noticable thing on my design, and of course, acid blood.

Ahh, so it's more a cat with xenomorph features. All right, I'll do another rough sketch when I have the time! Oh, also: the references I used didn't look like they had any shoulder ornaments, although one had spikes along the sides of the back, and another had the weird "pipe" pieces coming up from the abdomen, like what I sketched; is that what you mean, and I just need to move the spikes up? Or is it something I'm missing because I suck at finding references? xd.png

 

@SallyPuddy: Thanks!! You can absolutely make a request if you want! There are no slots or limits; I'm just a bit slow sometimes.

 

@Spatio: (Oh goll you think so I'm so flattered like oh gee you guys! X'D)

I've actually considered that, but I don't know what I would ask from people, hah hah. Probably real money at low prices, since I'm at that responsible age, but I wouldn't want to open up commissions until late summer at the earliest, when I hopefully have more time to actually give you guys my best! At the moment I'm more swamped with yard chores than requests... always mulch your flowerbeds, because it sucks if you don't. xd.png

Can you maybe design me a pretty fox? Design it however you want, I was hoping to maybe use it as my forum avatar cause I've been looking for one if that's okay aha c:

   Pretty fox! I forgot halfway through that it was a fox, so I had to re-add some of the features. I could crop it to just be a headshot if you want!

 

   @Rainbowlight: Made a second attempt:

   nKDL4Iul.png

   Is it closer or further from what you were imagining?

O.O That fox is amazing. 

Could I possibly (if you're not too busy) request a male pillow in a similar style but like a punk/biker/rebel pillow. Piercings, tattoos maybe a scarf? I'd love to see what you come up with.

Rainbowlight is currently on a trip. So, she is inactive for now. (I forgot when she come back)

   @Kat: Yay! I'm glad to see that it resizes properly too! Sometimes I have too much negative space in my pictures and it makes them too blurry at avatar size, but it looks like it works great!

 

   @stiky: Thanks! I've added your request to my queue; I haven't drawn a rebel dragon before. XD This will be interesting.

 

   @Kyath: Aw, thanks too! I didn't realize she was on a trip, but that's fine. The great thing about forums is that posts tend to stick around. Although I do worry that I missed the mark again... I feel like her OC is like one of my OCs: you can see it in your head, but explaining it is 90% impossible. XD Though just like with my OCs I'll keep trying until I get it right.
