My Old Art

Mon May 6, 2019, 5:03 PM

Yes. Let's have some fun at my expense. I hope you brought eye-bleach and popcorn because this will be a trip to hell and back. 

You are welcome to roast me and the four lucky drawings that I chose to show you.


Let's start!


01 by Lumen-Terra
Believe it or not but this is supposed to be Mikaela from Transformers. Back then I thought she was hot and naturally, I wanted to draw her in a sexy pinup pose. 

02 by Lumen-Terra
Yea. 2009 was my vampire-Sonic time. At least I managed to draw a hand with five fingers on that one. 

03 by Lumen-Terra
I have no excuse for this one, so I'll let it speak for itself. 
(It's supposed to be a Spyro OC)

04 by Lumen-Terra
I remember I was just so darn proud that I drew Ironman in MSPaint. 10 years later and I think he looks like a ketchup mascot with rubber gloves under his feet.




Again, I encourage you to be nasty in the comments. This is bad art and I'm not a beginner artist anymore - you don't have to sugarcoat anything.


Roast me!

5 Times I loved and 1 Time I...

Sun Feb 10, 2019, 3:37 PM




Today's prompt is to feature 5 deviations that I love in a journal. That's.... actually not that easy because I love a lot of things for many (different) reasons. #showyourheart_2019 
None of these will be in any order. I doubt I could rank my favorites anyway.

010 by GrumpyRays 
I love this one because it makes me happy. It reminds me of a hot, salty and sunny day at the beach.


Prize: Superman by ProphetofPrimes

I like Superman but, I love this one because it was made for me by someone who is super cool.


Happy Birthday Yugi 2018 by SallyVinter
I love this one because it's my first real OTP. The show was my childhood and I've got only good memories from it- memories that I'll treasure.


:: SU FA :: Obsidian by OpethHunter
I love this one because it shows what can happen if two people team up. Nothing is impossible!


.:Princess Lumen Terra:. by Owllazuli
I love this one because I love a good parody. I can take a joke at my expanse (or my character's). Life is hard enough far too often. Let's have some fun!


...and this last one is very special to me because this lady is what keeps me going. She's the reason why I'm going forward and she alone has the ability to make me go from duffel bag to king of the house.

Request a tutorial

Tue Feb 5, 2019, 1:00 PM




I'm taking free requests for digital and traditional art tutorials.

Just comment below what you want me to show you and I'll do my best to help you learn how to draw it yourself.

Let's try this! The first 5 of you who comment get a free doodle from me as reward for being so brave.
I don't bite- and asking for help shouldn't be something to be afraid of. 

If you want to stay anonymous you can note me and I won't tag you under the tutorial. 

OC Givaway Free

Sat Feb 2, 2019, 2:42 PM




This is Beverly. She's a very, very old character I made up for a comic but sadly she got written out of the story. Ever since then she'd been in my sketchbook.... Now I'm looking for a new owner of this cute girl. 

She's for free. All you need to do is comment below if you're interested. This is NOT first come - first serve. 

Solved Riddle

Thu Dec 13, 2018, 3:29 PM




Alright. Thanks to technical difficulties we got two winners. Congratulations to asking-aspasia and NerdyBiscuits105 for figuring it out. The answer is indeed 2 because 9 - 8 + 1 = 2.

That was fun, wasn't it? 

Let's play a game against me and get an awesome prize!

Solve this little riddle of mine and you can get one of the following prizes.


:sun: revision  Sun-pack: includes 1 month core and a drawing of one character.

Moon Emoji Moon-pack: includes 2 drawings and 1 pixel doll

You are only allowed to pick one of them and there will be only one winner: the person who solves it first. 


3 symbols interact. You will have to do a little math. Every second in this image counts. I will wait for the time when the missing number is found. 


To participate fill out the form below and comment your answer under this journal. You are allowed to try multiple times. Once someone figures it out the game will be over. You won't be able to find the solution online since I came up with this myself. 

Answer:

Character ref:
OC or Canon character:
I want the pack: 
Tag 3 people or more: 
I wish everyone good luck! 


MY Art Pet Peeves

Tue Oct 23, 2018, 11:47 AM




Don't read this if you think I'm a drama king or if you're easily offended by opinions. 

This is me ranting about some things that annoy me at best and bother me at worst. None of these are directed at somebody specific. It's just a way for me to vent out my frustration. 


IF YOU ARE OUT FOR DRAMA THEN LEAVE. IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE MY VENTING THEN LEAVE. 

Viewers discretion has been advised. 




1. Broken links to ref sheets
These legit drive me insane. I'm supposed to draw something for you and the ref is unavailable. Whoop dee doo. 

2. "Mouth" refs
I get it. Those characters have teeth and a freaky tongue but seriously... I need to look at that for hours and that saliva covered mouth is freaking me out like -pleasesavemeit'sgonnaeatmealive!!- 

3. Being told how to color
This is a shocker because it goes against every customer service rule I've ever learned but when I see a picture and I'm going to draw that character - I don't need an extra picture that shows me how to color said character. 

4. The "It's awesome but this and that is wrong" ™
Say, I draw something in my lineless style. Sit on it for about 5 to 8 hours and then suddenly the hair clip of the OC has a five pointed star on it that is too pointy. 

5. The "Why did you do that?" ™
I usually can answer why I did whatever. Why did I pick that pose? Why did I chose that setting? Easy- BUT sometimes I just do things because they feel right. Aside from that it's annoying as heck when I have to explain every little detail to people. Why is that apple red?-- why did you color it like that?

6. Running out of juice
No no. Not that kind of juice. I'm talking about my battery here.  

7. Lists of maybes aka: the OC dumpers
Imagine you were to open your requests and suddenly one person in there dumps over 10 different characters and keeps on rambling that maybe this one or that one would be cool. Or that one. Or maybe the first one again? OR maybe not. That second last would look good in my style too. Or maybe..... 

8. Gatekeeping and Elitism
(no further explanation given)

9. Status spamming
It's fine if you say goodnight every night. Yet there are people that have to put up a status every five minutes saying "I'm off now. See you after I ate a sandwich." or "I'm off. I need to pee." DA seems to be some people's diary or something...... Fortunately none of my friends do this. 

10. People tagging legit characters because they share a username
Example: my name is Lumen-Terra. I HAVE to tag all my work with #/Lumen not because I like the anime chick but because that's my name. I shall clog up the tag with my random art that has nothing to do with #/lumen !! 
Why I'm not using my full username? Well, exposure of course!  


Sharing is Caring

OpethHunter is hosting a raffle. Come and get some nice art! New watchers are welcome to join. She won't bite. :D



I'm a thief. You should be too!

Tue Oct 2, 2018, 1:48 PM




Do I really steal art?

Is style theft really a thing? --and is it really just like tracing? 


For a while now I have seen the topic pop up around the 'net. Today it's been the day where I've been accused of theft. My response? Guilty as charged. 

Now. Now- listen first before you start anything drastic! 
I don't steal but whenever I see something I like I tend to copy that. With copying I mean I integrate the element I like into my own style for later, so that I can make my own art much like it. That way I combine a lot of different techniques and styles into my own personal and unique arsenal of ways to create art.
You should do this too. 

I bet you need some examples now. This is how this works: I pick a drawing from my gallery and write above which show or game's style I replicated. (or tried to replicate- I'm not perfect)
Let's compare for a bit, shall we? Click on any image to get a closer look! 

Case 1: Me VS GTA
Summer Holos ::Chromia Arcee FlareUp:: by Lumen-Terra  
I took the crispy sharp shading and black line-art and imitated them.

Case 2: Me VS Vampire Knight
LuXOpeth by Lumen-Terra 
It's easy to recognize; Hino's soft coloring and the huge eyes for both females and males. They look just like the manga they were from, don't they? 

Case 3: Me VS Panty and Stocking
Humanized Lady Knights ::style practice:: by Lumen-Terra 
Now this is too easy to see! The white dot in the pupil looks interesting and the way the arms and legs make sharp edges when they bend is clearly recognizable. Even the flat but vibrant coloring looks familiar. Yip. I took that from P&S and I'm using it in other styles as well. 

Case 4: Me VS Yu-Gi-Oh
Natural Symphony by Lumen-Terra
I guess the eyes are what I like most. The style is dynamic and sharp- very cool and a lot of fun to draw. It's the details that make this style epic. Still, I stole it from the show didn't I?

Case 5: Me VS Steven Universe
Steven Universe Emerald by Lumen-Terra
Now this isn't my best attempt but the shape of the face belongs clearly to the show. The little to none shading is a recognizable trait of the style as well. 

Case 6: Me VS @/ForgottenHope547 
Posin shootin havin fun by Lumen-Terra
Yes. I stole this style from 'Hope. Really, can you blame me that I started to copy the way her shading looks like? It's gorgeous! I'm like the annoying little kid that's doing everything his idol does. Haha!
(Or at least I'm trying. 'Hope's much better at this than I am....)



Have you read and looked at everything carefully? Good. I want you to understand FULLY that I with saying "I steal this" I mean that I copy what I like- and you should do so too. It's part of growing as an artist. For as long as you don't steal finished art or trace over another person's work it's perfectly fine to create something that looks like your favorite show or idol artist. If you're still unsure then just ask art-sempai if they are okay with this. Most should be pretty chill about it. 

A style is like an artist's fingerprint. You can have two so alike it's creepy but you'll never find two that are completely and 100% the same. What I'm trying to tell here is that it's good to let yourself be inspired by what you like. Be it a style or a design. Learn from it. Make it your own and grow from the experience without being dependent on it. Nobody likes a cheap knock off or copy-cat, keep that in mind.

You can do it.
All of you can do great if you just try and get out of your comfort-zone. 

--and don't be a a** and bash someone for their style. You'll only make yourself look bad that way. 

Rules for my Art

Sun Dec 3, 2017, 8:50 AM




Whether it's a commission or a trade- here are some rules. 

What I draw:
ANY fandom. Yes, you read that right. I draw everything.
OC x OC*
OC x Canon* *!*
Canon x Canon* *!*
Fights
Pin-ups
A special style from a show you like. I can emulate these to make fake screenshots.
(*) If the pairing complies with the "No Drama" rule.



Commissions:

  • Do not claim the art as your own. 
  • You may trace my own art, but only if you credit me for the original, admit that it's traced and only do it for practice or fun. 
  • You can cancel your commission at any time you wish. I will refund you as soon as possible but you won't get the WIP.
  • You can ask for a status report at any time. 
  • You can ask me to not watermark your commission.
  • You can repost it if you credit me, keep my signature intact and link to my DA page.
  • I have the right to decline commissions because of any reason. Even if it's a personal one.



Cosplay:

  • Do not ask for NSFW pictures of myself or other people.
  • I do not sell my costumes.
  • I do not accept or wear costumes that you send me.
  • I accept picture requests if/when I cosplay a character of my choice.


Trades, Collaborations and Requests:

  • Don't rush me. My commissions always come first.
  • I can use your watermark on it if you want. Just ask.
  • You may NOT trace a AT or RQ artwork. 
  • You may also not claim it as your own even though it was made for you.
  • Please don't repost any of those images unless we agreed on it.
  • I have to right to say no if I don't want to do something, and you may not force me into doing an AT with you by drawing art for me and then expecting something in return.



Adopts:

  • I'm going to check you out if you want to adopt something from me. If you don't use them, or care for them well I won't sell them to you. If I find out you are a proxy customer you'll be blacklisted.
  • You can resell them. Contact me so that I know my adopt has a new owner.
  • If I don't like what you do with my design (e.g if you make a horrific Mary Sue or sex doll/nsfw mascot out of them) I can ask you to give it back. Of course you will get your points back as well.
  • You can take my adopts as inspiration. Just don't recolor or copy.


What I will not draw:

Due to legal reasons I can't and won't draw you canon characters for money/points. Please only request those or trade them with me.

Drama prone OCs or ships that can start a war in my comment section. I'm not calling anyone a M.Sue but keep your drama off my page.(this rule can be bent via stash delivery)

Anything with a bad or plain creepy ref. sheet. What I can't see - I can't draw.

"Pride OCs" (I'm proud of my place on the rainbow flag but making it an adopt or OC is not my kind of thing. 
I find it tasteless.)

Hate or Vent Art (Depending on the subject displayed and your reasoning for it. Ask me - but don't be sad if I decline.)

Religious art. I have my personal reasons for this. Please respect my choice to not draw anything directly religious. However, a simple cross or something vaguely related to any religion is fine.


Who stole my cape? ::tag game::

Sun Sep 17, 2017, 3:05 PM




Okay here's how this goes: Draw ANY hero you like -be it DC or Marvel- with Superman's cape but always draw a different hero each time so if your favorite is taken already, then sorry. You can also pick a villain if you want!

It's a funny gag @/ProphetofPrimes and I came up with and I want to turn it into a real tag now. It's all just for fun.
When you do draw them tag me and I'll put your art here in this journal so that we can all laugh at the silliness of it. :D



If you have drawn your part please tag someone else! 
AN: if you don't have the time it's also okay. Chat with me after you're done reading this. :D




 Superman has his cape. He likes it since it's a gift from his parents.
Barry... by ProphetofPrimes Barry... you stole it and the kryptonian is not happy.

If you want it... by temarcia Master thief Catwoman has stolen it from the Bat. If you want it... come and get it Superman.

Red Hood meets Red Cape by 00Sparx00 Hey! Red Hood took it back into the DC universe and Supes doesn't look happy at all. The annoyed kryptonian is annoyed.
Dr Manhattan needs it by 00Sparx00 I guess he's tired of this game. Hey Supes, you'll get it back eventually. Besides Dr. Manhattan is going to take care of it for you.  
who stole the Cape (deaths head) by juggernot117 .....and straight back into the Marvel universe we go! The red cape makes a impressive trophy doesn't it?
