I swear I did not forget about the crowd cameos I still have (there's now two left on my list), I've been waiting for @ammonite to get back to me as I tend to do them in the order I get them and then I realised a lot of time had passed x_x
I think I did the apple slightly too big, even if it is a little person.
This one is for elviento, who didn't ask for one but did post some adorable pictures of blue tanagers which I didn't even know existed. I cowarded out and did a front shot (because I figured the underside of the wings will be plainer than the top because that's usually how these things seem to roll) because I won't be able to get the colours of the wings with a sketchy.
Alternate title: I'LL EAT YOUR KNEES.
A line which became the catchcry of a friend's dwarf Shadowrun character after another person was teasing him about being the shortest character in the group.
I feel a need to apologise profusely to @inuke who requested a "wolf man" and then sent me an adorable reference image of himself with a friend's tiny dog.
Which I decided was a Pomeranian (I don't actually know if it was or not).
And then I apparently decided nukey was going to be a cute froofy extremely fierce pomeranian and once I get stuck on an idea that's what has to be done x_x
And that's how nukey became an angry pomeranian (I'm sorry please don't be too mad I'm pretty sure pomeranians are positive they're just mini wolves).
Running super late with these cameos just like with everything else, I AM SO SORRY x_x
@artwatch requested a black kitten/otter hybrid that was more kitten than otter. I immediately dubbed it "kittotten" and did a couple of initial sketchies, erased them all, started on another, and got distracted for literal months.
Yesterday I finally got back to it (I've lost track of days since soft lockdown first started and basically only know when it's a weekday or a weekend, I am trying to remember to check more often x_x) and after a couple more fails which got scrubbed suddenly ended up with something I could work with.
Galen was totally going to be a bounty hunter or special forces sniper or something to that effect. I even did the sketchy for it. It wasn't happy though, and it was late at night so I deleted everything and stormed off to bed.
This Galen is a prepper who lives a simple peaceful life on the edge of town and is one of those guys you want to take on your long range hunting trips because he has a keen eye. Also probably has an armoured campervan a family could survive a zombie apocalypse in.
The lighting for this one is a bit weird because he was meant to be stargazing but this method of shading is not conducive to night lighting (can be done but it's supposed to be a QUICK method of shading and doing that much deep shadow is the opposite of quick) so I changed it in a hurry to late evening cloud gazing.
Cloth dynamics is forever my sworn enemy.
Pineapple posted his first acapella song in the deep-shit channel for our listening pleasure.
It sounded pretty contemplative so I had this idea of Cinvent's Forest Fish and Pineapple's Pineapple Angel meditating to it. Which was all well and good except Pineapple Angel looks like he's about to burst into song...or singing this one, which I guess is fitting? XD
You only need one other person for a party right? XD
I'd settled down to work on poor f3nix's avatar (poor because they've been waiting ages for it! I'm so sorry!) but there was something wrong with my hand. Lineart was excessively slow and shaky, I kept having to redo lines constantly and despite drawing over both a sketch and having the base available (though it was broken as I had a set of bases that just wouldn't render correctly for some reason) I could not for the life of me get my hand to cooperate or certain bits to look right.
Hyenas tend to be punks or warriors or punk warriors and I was pretty tempted but nope because it's LORD Nigel, that called for a civil, classy hyena.
He may end up with ear piercings down the line.
Another fun one for VincentNijman, of him as a "forest fish". Pfft who am I kidding they're all fun XD
So the keywords were "forest fish" and he also wanted his bespectacled face on it. I'm not great at real people but gave it a shot, and also incorporated axolotl tail and feathery bits bcause that was the first thing that came to mind when we were talking about a fish that likes to go for long walks through the forest. What we have here is a river giant Selkie, probably 2.5m tall give or take, who loves going for long walks in the jungley areas beside his river. His eyes are better suited to underwater so he wears glasses when above.
Alternate title: Basketbok.
Why yes I can actually do portraits in portrait. It just required flipping numbers in my render settings and I am nothing if not incredibly lazy.
Everything that is remotely to do with a springbok now has the suffix -bok. And bmj and jackmiller managed to replace a well known and widely used cuss word with "bok" as well which made for an amusing conversation.
Perhaps I should have done a rugby ball but basketball got stuck in my head as nathanmj is mad keen about it and I vaguely recall bmj saying something about coaching but I don't know if the two ideas were actually related. I think this guy is almost a treebok and not just because of the horns or the different picture orientation. Reckon he'll just about stand eye to eye with some of my taller Dragonkin.
