My relatively old character Shiiru, now completely revamped.. the only picture of her old design that I've got available is here: [link] and as you can see, her design has changed significantly since then.. I fixed her ears, changed her feet to actual deer hooves, gave her antlers instead of silly little goat-like horns.. and the star tattoo in her cheek has changed into star-shaped pupils. I much prefer her this way. She still wears cute, delicate and girly clothing and is just as shy and clumsy as she has always been. Also people who've been present in streams may recognize her as my 'mascot' of sorts.
And yes I know does don't have antlers.. but she looks cuter with them. Lol.
Oh! And this is a sort of sample of a type of commissions I shall be offering in the future; monochrome shaded, texturized sketch. :>
Eee thank you very much ; v; I wanted to make her seem as much like a humanized deer as I possibly could, hence the abnormally frail build she has. I also think my sketches have more life to them than inked pieces..
Yes. Yes. So much yes. I absolutely LOVE sketching, and I feel like my sketches have like.. more depth to them. As soon as I lineart something (especially traditionally) it feels.. ruined. Somehow all the depth and fluidity is just GONE. D:
Yeah - I don't want to go overboard when drawing individual strands and lines, and it's just so much easier to give the hair structure and volume through sketching than linearting. Some people do pull it off beautifully, but my hands are shaky and my patience is thin. xD
