Rabbit Requests?
« on: January 12, 2013, 04:31:23 AM »
Hey, so, I need practice drawing rabbits.  I have my own rabbit style separate from the series or movie, so I will be drawing them differently.  Further down the road I will be animating rabbits, so when I feel comfortable, I will take small animation requests for characters.

I'm a fan of all your roleplay characters, so I was wondering if anyone would like me to draw theirs. :] I'll do canon characters too if you like (as in, anyone from the books)

I think I got a bit carried away with this xD

Just some information:

This is what my style looks like, roughly:

http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2013/006/6/a/rabbit_practice_by_pancakeshiners-d5qnywp.png

I may shade my pictures, depending on how many requests I get.  Here's some examples of my current styles of shading:
Very simple, quick with a fuzzy brush
More complex, soft cell shading
Very simple, hard cell shading

Below is the form, but here's what information I need.

Obviously the character's name.  If it's an OC here, then I'll find the bio myself, and may ask for more information on them if needed.  If it's an off-site character, I need a link.  If it's a canon character, I would prefer to pull a design out of my imagination but I don't have to.

I need to know, if I am shading it, whether or not you care how I do so, and if so, which style.  I may not shade at all, as previously stated.  (I have an animation series to work on too, you know, I do my art only in those times where I don't wanna animate now...)

I need specifics on what you want... Avatar? Signature image? Drawing with background? Just the character itself? What's the character doing, or are they just sitting around? If you don't specify I'll decide for you.  You should know I'm horrible at backgrounds unless it's just a simple shaded color background... You don't have to fill out this part but I may decide for you.  If you want something specific, it helps to tell me the position of the character (pose)

Name:
Link:
Shading:
Specifics:

I don't take commissions generally... So every request is free... I like drawing art for other people.  It's fun and it makes me feel warm inside, although there are so many I haven't gotten done.  xD That will change because now I have a waiting list of 5 people.  owo And it already has two.

1. HeroXGrovyle drawing: Grovyle and Kitten for ICouldntUseAffaButYa
2. Leero on a Cloud for ClaratheDelcatty
3. Elay for Dandelion
4. Arvens for Hawkbit
5.

Thanks! :3

PartnerxBidoof? :huh The art is very nice, and I'm thinking I'll request something, because my art is something to be desired.

Name: Elay

Shading: I don't care
Specifics: Do whatever you want, as long as it's of this character.

Yeah, PMD shipping, I highly doubt you know what it is and if you do, the pairing you probably don't understand xD I'm weird like that.

I'll get to it asap.  :] Looks like it'll be fun X3

No, I know of PMD. It's quite fun. It's the pairing I don't understand. What were you thinking?

Well, each to their own, but I have my reasons.  I never hated Bidoof, so it really isn't hard for me to like... Secondly, in my own mind, the partner needed someone to connect with after the hero disappears... From reading his diary, it's apparent that Bidoof is fond of the two main characters... Then there's that scene at the end... And, I don't ship heroxpartner, I pair my hero with Grovyle.  ; D. But, I'd rather not get too into it, although there are stranger pairings put there, like I said, each to their own, and this is, after all, not a PMD forum.

Wow, some really nice art, and you definitely have your own unique style.  You really make the claws stand out for quick running from all those elil! :D

If you're looking for a character to practice on, you could always try my character, Arvens.  His description is here: http://fhc.soopergrape.com/index.php?topic=95.0

Thanks! My rabbit style does have room for improvement, but I did try to get it as close to being realistic as I could handle.  ;3

I'm actually really, really glad you requested him.  I find him to be a really cool and interesting character~ But yeah, I'll add him to the list!

wow this is really amazing of you offering to do this for free!! :D

I have an rp character that isnt yet in the plays but maybe in the future. If you're still willing here:


Name: Calhoun

Age: One year


He has coppery red fur with light grey patches on his shoulders, ears tips and muzzle.
He had pitch black eyes and he is severely scarred all over his body, with a more distinct and larger scar on his side.  Calhoun is athletic and a warrior.

If you do this you are so awesome :) if you don't want to also its your choice.

Hawkbit, I understand completely.  You being too busy to roleplay doesn't change the awesomeness of the character~

And yeah, have considered doing commissions, but I prefer to do free requests.  I don't consider myself good enough anyhow.  But yeah, sounds like a great character, I'll add him to the list later!

Requests are now full, I'll open them up again when I've completed a few.  ^.^

Thanks.  I do have plenty of room for improvement, particularly on my shading... owo

One more thing for both of you, I need any specifics for the requests (shading, background, ect.)

I also need a personality for Calhoun and a description of some sorts (color, build, markings) for Arvens.

for the shading, anything! Whatever you want to do dear!

Calhoun's Personality - He is very troubled and has a scared past. Since he grew up in a warrior warren, he doesn't know much about happiness. Though he can express affection, he is cautious and brave.

There we go :D short i know

I thought there was description of that....but ok...

Arvens is dark brown, medium-build.  He has a yellow-orange feather in his right ear, as a symbol of captaincy at the warren he had to leave due to an illness being spread through the burrows.  He has no other markings.  I'd show you another artists' rendition of him, but I'm curious how you'd draw him without any other picture to go by. :)

Lol, Arvens is still available whenever you want to jump back in, Hawky. :3

I'd LOVE to see a picture of my OCs, all three of them being dynamically different. :x Not sure if you're still taking requests, though.
