Apathy - Line Art by TracyWong Apathy - Line Art by TracyWong
The first stage of my commission for *J-Styles75. This is his oc Apathy. She will eventually get painted, but I wanted to show you guys the first stage. This is one of the most detailed characters I've done in a while, and I'm not very good at drawing, so it took longer than I had wanted - about 4 hours (and I haven't even started the color work yet - Oy!).

Anyway, I hope you guys like it. Feel free to color it, just follow my simple rules: You may use these lines for color practice, as long as you: 1) do not sell or make prints of it without obtaining written permission from me and, 2) you must credit me and provide a link back here or to my front page. These rules are simple and easy to follow, so please respect them. :)

Lines look pretty solid and the anatomy looks good. Pretty impressive considering you're "not very good." ;) Speed comes from practice, it's the quality that takes the effort.

Awww Thank you! That's nice of you to say. :) And yeah, the speed will come from practice. I hope I get more people commissioning me to draw, that will give me more practice for sure! lol Don't get me wrong, I LOVE doing color work, but sometimes it's nice when people want me to do the drawing part too. heheh It doesn't happen often though, so I guess I'll have to find some time in my free time to do more drawing practice. I spend about 12-15 hours a day on the computer, but there has to be an extra hour or two in the day I can squeeze into practicing drawing. heheh

Thank you for the compliment and feedback. I appreciate it, Treyos. :)

I could see there being an extra boost of pride in being able to say "I did this from start to finish." Of course, if I spent 12-15 hours on the computer, it probably wouldn't be as productive as your time. ;P I'm too easily distracted.

Wow. Great work. Are you going to stick with the grey and red scheme from the reference drawing?
Reply
:icontracywong:
TracyWong Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, the character's creator has requested that the color palette be the same as the reference image. Which is understandable. :) As it's a character with an established color scheme, I think it's important to try to be as true to the original design as possible.

Yay! I'm so glad you like it! :) The colors will probably be a while as I'm currently juggling 3 other commissions. But hopefully soon I'll have time to paint her.

hahah If I did that though I'd never get to the color work done on this! lol My paid commission list is always full. :) (Not bragging, just SO BLESSED! Thank you, God!).

I'm really happy you like it so far, hopefully the color work won't be disappointing. Send me your email with a note and I'll send you the full size color file when I'm finished.

Wow! Thank you, Ashley! That's very nice of you to say! :D
I don't get commissioned to draw stuff very often (mainly just get commissioned to color other people's art), so I'm out of practice with drawing. I supposed I'll get better with more practice. Hopefully I'll get more people commissioning me to draw, so that will definitely give me more time to practice. Any drawing tips you could give me would be helpful. :)

BTW, you should call me sometime. I'd love to chat.

It is the other way around for me, haha. I feel fine with drawing, but coloring gets me a little blocked. I have Sunday off if you wanna hang.

:icontracywong:
TracyWong Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ohhh Sunday should good! I don't have a convention this weekend (the following weekend I'm going to WonderCon) but this weekend I'm free. We should have lunch or coffee (OR you could come over and teach me some drawing tips! lol jk).

Oh speaking of drawing tips, since you're more comfortable with the drawing and less comfortable with the colors, we should totally team up for commissions. :) Give it some thought, if you're interested let me know.

Naw, time off from work is hard to obtain. Then there is the drive down and back. My car just wouldn't make it.

TracyWong Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, we decided that the wear and tear on the car would be too much too, so decided that we are going to fly. I'm a bit scared though, I hate flying. If you want anything specific from the con let me know and I'll see if I can get it for you. One of my friends sent me two books that he wants an artist that is going to be there to sign. I realize that I'm really blessed to be able to go, and a lot of people aren't so lucky, so I'd be happy to help if there is something specific you want from there (as long as it can fly back on a plane. heh
