I’ve been thinkin’ about starting an Ask Rosalina blog.
But when I tried to start my first pic, photoshop wouldn’t open. And my trial on SAI ran out, so I had to do this all in one sitting.
A few tips everybody should consider. I’ve experienced all those and some more. I’m not good at english but I hope you get it. Go and support some artists out there and let them draw you nice shit. Not as nice as FairyNekoDesu but still will be cool so give them a chance and you’ll be surprised.
All of these things.
Especially the deadline. If you don’t have a deadline thats way in advanced it’s not gonna get done by then. I am almost always taking on a ton of projects at once and sometimes need a break from it to: work on stuff for me, work on stuff for friends, search for jobs, be the work slave of parents, actually relax and try to relief stress, technical difficulties, researching on how to do stuff, ect.
Sometimes it’s done in a day. Sometimes it’s done literally a year later. But I always update the people I work with so they know I haven’t forgotten.
Do NOT rush your commissioner. Let them work at their pace and it will be worth it. Rushing them insures a rush job which will very likely make the quality decline.
All this is true. Also, ref sheets are the most important thing ever. I can’t stress that enough. They make the job A LOT easier (instead of having to compare 10 different pics between each other and see that everything fits, you just look at 1!!) If you plan in commissioning your character a lot, or even if its not yours (like from an anime or something) Either commission one or look for ref sheets of the show (because there are!).
Also i strongly suggest not using Instant Messaging. Information can be lost pretty easily there and it’s hard to come back to it. Use emails instead. The info stays there, and it’s easy to search for it. It’s also an excellent way to keep track of the descriptions, so if either the client or artist made a mistake, you can see the email threads and see who’s right straight away.
also pushy clients LOVE instant messaging. Pls no.
All of this ^
Oh god yes this.
Give me a pairing and a number and I’ll draw them kissing.

So I normally only have my 2D stuff up, but I thought I ought throw in some of my 3D work as well.
I’m still learning and I definitely prefer 2D over 3D, but I’d like to think this came out pretty well
I modeled, textured, and lit everything myself.

pleASE DO THIS I NEED MOTIVATION TO DRAW STUFF
Here’s a test I’ve been working on tonight for some animation homework. spazboy225, kaleidoart, and I are in a group together to make a speculative ad for a moving company (U-Haul). We’re doing it in a line-less style (something none of us has done before) so I figured I’d try it out with one tiny asset from the animation.
Doodling cute girlfriends in class.
