*OLD NEWS!*

Yo. I have no idea if I'll regret this or what, but I'm in the mood for drawing what other people tell me to, for a little while.

Here's the deal:

...I can't guarantee that I'll actually end up doing anything. I know myself. I have all those plans and then just sit there and drool until I forgot what I was going to do. But at the very least, I'll know what you people would LIKE to see, and it'd be awfully interesting, 'kay? |^^|;

Er, but. Right. The deal.

Everyone can tell me two things.

("Everyone" includes... everyone. I don't have to know you, really.)

One fan thing. Anything. Videogame, cartoon, movie (animated, live action, whatevvur), some nostalgia from your youth, I dunno. Preferably something I DON'T draw all the time, but if you insist I just do more of the same, fine. =P

A bit of detail (like which character, and possibly what you'd like to see them do) can't hurt. Er. No living out odd kinks, though, okay? |>>|

If I don't KNOW what you're talking about, I'll either look it up and try to go with it blindly, or... well, should something like that come up I can still decide what to do then. But wouldn't it be cool if you said something obscure and I know what you're talking about? Eh, eh?

Stylewise, I'll probably go for something more or less resembling this one www.deviantart.com/deviation/3… , as in small picture, inks and quick digital coloring. Maybe just a pencil sketch if I get too stumped. YOU'LL NEVER KNOW. Heck, not even *I* know.

Okay, SECOND. If you want. You can name me one or two or so original characters of yours and I'll handle that the same way as mentioned above. Of course, giving me a link to a reference picture might be veryvery useful there.


So, yep. In short again: Everyone can tell me a fan thing and an original thing (please do it in replies to this journal post, notes sort of tend to get lost with me), and I'll see if I can draw it. Please don't hurt me if I don't do it, though. I'm jus' doing it for fun and interest in what you people like.

...bring it on.


Status: As everyone probably noticed, I haven't actually done anything with this for, what, over a year? I feel really guilty, because I do like a lot of the requests. Which is why I keep this list on here just in CASE I actually start up on it again. No new requests for now, though, please. |^^|;

Seriously, it's cool to see that SO many people are interested! |^^|;

Let's see, I have plenty of OC's kicking around my gallery, so let's pick Raven (I haven't got a solid ref but she's all over my gallery) And since she's a POTC OC, maybe you could try and include Jack (wow, original much XD)

Or you could try my Star Wars OC Tayra [link]
who's meant to be Anakin's Padawan in my fan fic, so you could try and include him. :D
CardBoard-Box24's avatar
also, forgot to mention, as you can tell in that pic i noted you, he's really really tall for a hoodian
CardBoard-Box24's avatar
if it's okay, can you draw my NH fancharacter, Kleptok? your Neverhood pics from you old site blow me away and i love the pencil coloring. [link] is the only colored pic i have of him. can you draw him and Willie being stupid in some way? (not as in a pairing, just as in friends)

You could draw anyone of my characters. On my da or you could go to [link] for more. How does this commission thing work anyway, I might do some. Maybe if I am not to buzy.

I am just skimming your message. Did you say you might want to draw other people's characters? If you draw mine would this be a commission for you? Will you put my characters in your gallery or return the painting when your done with it? I am still not understanding this commision thing. You could draw mine if you like, only if you could link me to the page of my characters when your done. That is if it works that way.

OR one of my <surprise> Neverhood character, also named catluvr2, link: [link] </surprise>

Read the backstory below the deviation. I thought of it when I still knew you as doo.

catluvr2Hobbyist General Artist
Could you draw my anthro character (named ~catluvr2 w/o the ~ ) (links: [link] and [link] ) in a Star Wars setting? Or you could do a setting of your choice, just make it a weird setting.
Sara-Ford's avatar
Something from a CLAMP Grafic novel would be great. Specifically, I'd have to say... Yuuko: [link] or Yue: [link]

As for an OC or 3...
Cur: [link] / [link] (or if you want AU:Cur [link] )
Harlequine: [link] (If you have an interest in her, ask and I'll describe her colors for you)
Or these two: [link] (Again, if you have an interest, I'll certainly drop you more od a description)

*blushes* I've never asked anyone to draw something for me before, but I figured this might be a good start if I'm ever going to work up courage to commission someone (it'll probably take years, augh!).

Well, I have this character that I created almost four years ago. Her name is Jamie, and she likes to live in the He-man world! :B Yayness.

She's short. 5'2". Not thin, curvy. Straight-as-a-board hair (it's white), big almond shaped green eyes, and white skin (white white).

She likes to wear body hugging outfits most of the time, but she also wears a regular tunic and a pair of pants. Knee high boots are always a must around this chick.

You doing this is very nice; I rarely see artists drawing for others and not asking anything of it. If I had any talent in that department, I should like to do it alot. Thanks in advance, and I hope you're not too overwhelmed by all the requests you're probably receiving.

Hope you have fun. If you ever feel like chatting, send a note! (last part sounds fake and cheesy, but I promise that I'm serious)

See ya.

Aw, heh, don't worry, I can imagine most artists are flattered when asked for a commission. |^^|;

It may take quiiiite a while 'til I get to you, but you're added on the list. |^^|
DracheKind89's avatar
Oh, go ahead and take your time; I'm in absolutely no rush at all. And thanks again. :hug:

I just randomly found you through your art, so when I read this, it seemed rather interesting, and since you said "everyone" I hope you don't mind randomly bumping in and try picking your brain.

This one might be interesting for you since I haven't seen you try anything like mecha in your gallery, so for a fan thing, I would say Jazz from the original/G1 Transformers cartoon. As to what he's doing, something stylish since anything done stylish would fit his character.

As for an original thing of mine, I would have to go with Alex, she would be the one on the right in this picture: [link]
As to what she's doing, well, can't really say for certain, she can be a tad hyper so anything fitting that would work.

Hope you don't mind me coming in and randomly adding in my two cents.
mct421's avatar
mct421Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, that's exactly what I'm hoping for, people randomly popping in and bringing some new ideas. |^^|;

Hmm, interesting ones. Noted down! I have NO idea when/if I'll get around to 'em, though, so don't hold your breath (too much). |^^|;
hunterbahamut's avatar
hunterbahamut Digital Artist
Oh bother...I just realized I made a small error, a few months late no less.

In the link I gave you for Alex, she isn't the one on the right she's the one on the left, the white one, heh. I'm terribly sorry about that.

Don't worry, get around to them if you ave the time or the desire, just throwing my hat in. ^^

hey its me again. you may not remeber as so many people keep asking you to do pictures. i now feel really sorry for you because of the sheer amount of work you have ahead. sorry to even ask for one infact. however i can try and make it slightly easier with my piece by providing a link like everyone else. [link] i think that how to put a link up i'm not sure. anyway. i wish you the best of luck dealing with the colosal work load you have ahead.

on another note i read those stories you wrote about those two black mages and i have to say they were very good and i wish there were more as you would seam to be a very good writter. also i must ask. was that smashed crate the second and seamingly prefered black mage was found in (i think no.412) the one that black waltz three blows up on the cargo ship? anyhoo bye and good luck.

mct421Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's not THAT many, and since it's all voluntary and meant for seeing what people'd like to see, it's not so bad. |^^|;

About the story, nah, those crates aren't anything you can see in the game. The "400"s are something I squeezed in randomly, and my reasoning why they're not in the game is that they were being produced JUST when it turned out the Black Mages won't be needed anymore (but the village didn't know it yet). As the village found out they dumped the first delivery of the would-be-next-generation mages down a cliff since they didn't know what else to do with them.
purple-samurai's avatar
wow. thats some damn clever writting. it would be good if you did more stories they are very good. i like how you made it so all black mages who gain independance for some reason have a similar personna. quite polite but errrr unimformed. very good. also, you must have quite a bit of time on your hands if you can do so many drawings for other people.
purple-samurai's avatar
i would like to apolagies for that extensivly long essay of a request but i must add a few things. the mage i mentioned has a name Runus Waltz. not he most creative i'm aware but i think it suits him. a feature i must enthisise is that his red leather jacket is old and the sleaves are too long for him so his hands are constantly obscured. his hat flops forward and theres a little black waltz 1 style bell on its end. i am very thankful if you choose to do him. i've loooked through your Da gallery and i was surprised to find few black mages, so i must ask if that final fantasy 9 art i found a link to on here is infact yours? no offence intended but i have a history of blundering mistakes.

Haw, well, first of all, thank you! And if you mean No.421's FF9 page, yep, that's mine. It's very much the reason why I don't have many Final Fantasy pictures on here - most of the ones I drew can be found there.

It shouldn't be a problem to draw your character. |^^|; It might take quite a while, though, since I'm trying to go in order of the list here, and there's quite a few people left.

Can't really do a comic since this little project here's only meant for single pictures, but I'm sure SOME of his personality can be captured like that, too, hehheh.
purple-samurai's avatar
i'm am deeply thankful. i realised the idia of a comic was mad once i had typed it but i had already sent another message and i did not wish to mess you about. thank you

yer errr hi. i just saw that picture of vivi and the waltzez and coincidently found them truly inspiring pieces. apon adding it to my favourite i thought i'd look at some of your other pieces and i realised this post about just taking on other peoples insane demands. i'd feel very guilty to ask of you to do but you are offering to as you mentioned 'everyone'. so i thought perhaps you could do a nice little picture of a black mage of my own design? i'd be very thankful. unfortunatly with my limited computing knowledge i don't know how to make a link but a rather rudementry image of him is on my errrr page. i thought that perhaps you could do a comic of sorts or just something to get across the personallity traits i cannot with my limited art skills. his personna icludes his liking of large boots and hats because he feels insicur and iritated near tall people about his hieght. also he being proficiant in firy spells is a bit of a pyromaniac and sets fire to things. he also has a unique spell by staring at a person for a long time will give them head aids. (its in a comic, not that funny but i actually don't think this needs to be included). he works childrens birthday parties but rarly lets thing go as they should. this all sounds a bit silly and i realise i'm being very demanding like other people who are awnsering to this post, but i am very thankful. well goodbye.

Blue out.
