Title: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Scribe on August 31, 2011, 01:24:57 PM
Since Fuhreesha did an art request thing, I thought it would be cool to have a thread for art requests in general! I'm still itching to keep drawing Leviathan art. ;)

So yes...

I'd love to see someone draw Alek and Deryn in a rainy New York city, with Bovril inside Deryn's coat and Alek holding their umbrella. It can be happy and sweet, or they can be walking away from someone menacing...

I'll do an art request in return! (Beware, I've never drawn clanker stuff...but I'd try?)

Ooh! Sounds fun! I might try my hand at that.

YAY!
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on August 31, 2011, 02:04:53 PM
Now I am brainstorming. (And trying to remember what Alek's hair looks like. :P)

>.< short hair is the hardest thing ever to draw. Serves me right for having drawn long-haired anime boys exclusively for, like, ten years.

Post by: Klarsynet on August 31, 2011, 02:10:03 PM
I've been basically only drawing short hair/updos lately, so it's a bit easier for me now. I'm glad they don't have buzzcuts. (Woah, in my reference picture, Deryn has a really long neck. xD) I think expressions/poses are really hard. D: Goodness.

Hmm I would draw a pick but im not very good (better than a lot of people but not a lot of acutaul talent but I can draw better than stick figures by a lot) im all right at short hair but its the ears that kill me when I draw it
>.< short hair is the hardest thing ever to draw. Serves me right for having drawn long-haired anime boys exclusively for, like, ten years.
Ive been meaning to try and draw some anime like pictures but havent gotten around to it
(oh and sorry if it seems I am kind of randomly intruding on a conversation it seems quite interesting)

I tried to draw it last night, but I couldn't get the poses right. If I chopped them off at the waist it might be all right. XD

Dude, I was bored so I started drawing as always. And I started on the whole umbrella/rain/walking thing. It's just Deryn though for now. It's been a work in progress for about 10 minutes, but thought you might wanna see. Ha, you can see fail Alek's outline. And I see fail Deryn. (Her mouth looks so awkward!) D: Poo, why do my doodles look better than when I try? ARGH.


Dang the picture didn't show. Maybe it's for the better? (And you ask, why the strange title?)

Hi!
If you still need ideas: Deryn in a hot air balloon.
It doesn't matter if she's a little girl or the age she is now, nor whether her father's with her or not.
I just like the idea of Deryn flying like that again.
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 01, 2011, 12:07:55 PM
I love jamming ideas in my head. Keep them coming. I saw the idea of Alek being a wingman for Deryn and Lilit on some other thread. I want to draw that so badly.
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Fuhreesha on September 01, 2011, 12:29:51 PM
Klarsynet, your drawing of Deryn. It. Was. Amazing. No. Joke. Dude. For. Rizzles.

Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 01, 2011, 12:32:02 PM
Why thank you. But, I've finished her. I need to add Alek. And an umbrella. And Bovril.

And then draw wedding dresses because they're so fun to draw, probably not fun to wear.

And then wingman Alek. :D
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Rue128 on September 01, 2011, 12:33:04 PM
Yes! Wingman Alek.

Oh and after I don't eat Bovril soup, I would like to say that I also drew Alek and Deryn and Bovril in the rain, but ummm it's kind of sad. I also drew the one with Alek riding a strawberry while Newkirk is being dragged.

Post by: Scribe on September 02, 2011, 11:18:08 AM
So, my picture of Deryn and Alek's clothing swap turned into something else...but I have another draft of it. My thought is that Deryn will have a speech bubble over her head that says: "Yeah, I'm the barking Arch-whatsit of Austria-Hungary! Who the eff are you?"

Well, this was originally going to be Alek in a middy uniform, pretending to be lazy like Deryn...and then I got an idea. So instead, THEY'RE SUCKING FACE. Will finish/color this later. ;)

Lol! Love how you put 'instead, they're sucking face.' I can't wait for the wedding pic. Was this the thread where they were going to make Alek a wingman? Because I really want to see that one. Love the cross dressing one too!
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 02, 2011, 12:38:31 PM
Yes. Wingman Alek is on his way. UGHHHH. I found out I've been drawing Alek's jacket all wrong the whole time. At this point, I'm not fixing it. Moustacheque buttons/whatever FTW.

Anyway, those look real good, Scribe. :D
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Clankinist on September 02, 2011, 12:41:58 PM
Those. Are. Win!

You're my new hero, Scribe! ;D

I've gotten a request for 'wingman Alek' too. Comin along just swimmingly....kinda. I've got, like, 3 versions of it. :/
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 02, 2011, 12:44:49 PM
I got the idea of drawing like 20 ways how Deryn's could be revealed and the events that follow that. That's how I occupy my freetime now. :P
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps

Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Scribe on September 02, 2011, 01:12:21 PM
We should do a "10 ways to reveal Deryn's secret" Meme, to show off our art!

1. Deryn's secret revealed during "fencing practice" with Volger.
2. Deryn's secret revealed because she's shot/injured
3. Deryn's secret revealed because Alek is a genius.
4. Deryn's secret revealed because Bovril is a genius.
5. Deryn's secret revealed, involving flechette bats.
.....?
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: MismatchedSocks on September 02, 2011, 01:14:42 PM
I like that idea! I've just recently realized that I like to draw and that's why I've only been doing it a few days. I do need a lot of practice though.
6. Newkirk finds out on his own. (which would make him very smart)
7. Deryn's mom comes on the leviathan.
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Clankinist on September 02, 2011, 01:16:36 PM
3 made me laugh. XD

8. Eddie Malone is a genius
9. Lilit suddenly appears and is all BAM! Deryns a chick!
10. OR Deryn just grows a pair, throws caution and passion to the wind, and tells Alek....

....Or not. XD

Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 02, 2011, 01:31:07 PM
I drew Deryn just goes and tells Alek, he makes a sexist remark, she gets mad, says she loves Newkirk instead when Newkirk walks in and yeah...

And I have Alek and Deryn both saying they're girls.

And, one when Alek says he knew all along.

And one when it's all a dream. xD

And... a funeral one.

Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: MismatchedSocks on September 02, 2011, 02:01:08 PM
What about one where a guy who's real name is Dylan Sharp goes up to Deryn is like Oh you're the lass who dressed up like me and stole my identity. And Alek's just standing there like  :o

They were cool. But they wore feathers. And those modern feather extension things annoy the heck out of me. :P Anyway, moving on.

We almost did the Roaring 20's for homecoming, but we're doing something else instead now. I wanted to be all flapper. D:

Post by: Klarsynet on September 02, 2011, 03:06:11 PM
Roaring 20's was my idea and I was going to march in the room and announce it with a not-so-planned-speech, but found out that some guy already came up with a different theme. So, I was all kinda disappointed, but the n the gears in my head were turning all day and I can manipulate his idea into something all awesome and well, me. xD
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Scribe on September 02, 2011, 05:13:30 PM
Well, Deryn and Alek will be in their 20s during the 20s! I don't know a BETTER age to take advantage of flapper culture. Deryn would probably be very fashionable with her short hair and boyish frame. ;)

Ah, I see.

Haha! I draw during math, too. Last year, my teacher put me up front in an attempt to get me to listen...it didn't work. Miraculously, I still got a B in that class. XDDD
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 03, 2011, 07:09:09 AM
My teacher doesn't seem to notice, but I'm pretty sure I still have an A, so I'm good.

And I realised my handwriting has turned into chicken scratch during English today. If you guys have any problem reading my writing when I post my little Reveal requests thing, I apologize in advance.

yeaaaa my science teacher ripped it out of my hands and saw i was drawing percy and annabeth hugging and what not she was like IS THIS WHAT YOU DO  FOR SCIENCE CLASS?! lol, this british dude in my class, tom, was like eck. she doesn't get that besides all the snogging they do they are best mates.

I did write a ton during the summer, my handwriting changes with my mood and I guess I don't feel very up-to-speed lately. Sigh.

Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 03, 2011, 07:49:30 AM
Mine's just weird. Just really weird. But it decreases in size the more I write. In English, at the top my handwriting was big enough to see from where I was sitting. Then it got smaller, and smaller and tiny. :P

Tried that before. *deletes introduction so far* I guess my old granny vocabulary was just sprinkled with modern teenager jargon.

Anyway, I've turned one picture of Alek and Deryn in modern clothing into a wardrobe thingamajig. And, I actually feel like colouring it. Shocker, eh?

I know. School ruins everything. I don't have time to read, write, or draw. Dumb teachers need to stop trying to teach us stuff.

Post by: MismatchedSocks on September 09, 2011, 08:09:03 AM
My mom and sister taught me how to read. But now all we learn is poetry (no offense to poetry lovers, but I really just dont understand most of it), and American history, and math.

If anyone wants to trade something, I'd be happy to, as long as it's not too complicated and I can draw it. And it'll probably take me a while. And even longer if you want it colored.
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Fuhreesha on September 09, 2011, 10:38:34 AM
I don't know about you guys, but I have a boat load of work and I still have time to draw, lawl. Not as much as in the summer, but I still can...during study block and when I finish my homework and the like.

Actually, I probably won't have more time as the school year progresses...is anyone on Westerforum in the IB Program? :D
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 09, 2011, 10:52:19 AM
IB Program? If I don't know what it is, then I'm probably not in it. xD

I should really be doing my work, I have to read 40 pages. Usually I can finish that lickety-split, but I have to write and underline and all that fun stuff.
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Fuhreesha on September 09, 2011, 10:58:48 AM
Aw, I see. Unless..YOU'RE SECRETLY IN A PROGRAM WITHIN A PROGRAM WITHIN A PROGRAM. Inception.

Gee whiz, underlining can be fun. What do you have to read? A text book or a book?
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 09, 2011, 11:05:13 AM
A book. The Chosen. But, I dunno, I have to make side comments and all of that in the margins. Annotating.

Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: MismatchedSocks on September 09, 2011, 11:07:04 AM
Ugh. Were going over annotating too. I don't undersand why. If it's important then I will remember it.
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Fuhreesha on September 09, 2011, 11:08:03 AM
Ah. I've never read that book. I had to read Lord of the Flies for a summer assignment, though. And now we're talking about the argument of "Nature over Nurture" and applying it to LOTF. IT's great fun. I'm actually serious. XD
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: Klarsynet on September 09, 2011, 11:11:35 AM
My last teacher was all "UNDERLINE EVERYTHING IN A SPECIFIC COLOUR!" "WRITE EVERY QUESTION AND THOUGHT THAT COMES TO MIND!" And my current teacher is like "Who cares about that crap? Write what's important and underline what's important. Just read child."

It's okay, I guess. But now any book I read, I dissect like I'm annotating. It's been like that for months. When I read Leviathan, I was like "Oh! Character description! Where's my pink pencil?" :|

I read the Count of Monte Cristo over the summer, extremely good book, if not the best.
Title: Re: Art requests/swaps
Post by: MismatchedSocks on September 09, 2011, 11:17:48 AM
Our teacher has us read short stories and poems to annotate. With poetry, I'm just like he's talking about death??

Like "O're the babbling brook, I saw, a dandy tree dressed all in green. As it swayed from side to side, basking in the sunlight, I could not-"

I can't write more of that, I'm sorry. But I did write a four page sentence once.

Instead of "I saw a tree today."

Something like that? xD

I was reading my intro I wrote yesterday. No, slaved over yesterday, and I realised it was written at a third grade reading level. So much for making the teacher thinking I'm smarter. :|

Anyway, I am working on busts of the full cast, or at least named characters I deem important ("BUT THEY'RE ALL IMPORTANT!" said the optimistic and apparently over ambitious part of my brain.), so wish me luck.

Over the summer, I was working on a project of my own. I was drawing one of the new characters and trying to solidify his design. (HAS YET TO HAPPEN.) But out of that, I've learned how to draw Alek. Yay. That is all.

Post by: MismatchedSocks on September 13, 2011, 01:35:09 PM
Cool. Out of my short drawing time(like two weeks) I've drawn the most pictures of Deryn (pre- Leviathan) staring up into the sky. I have like five sketches of that.

Why thank you. Sometimes I pull inspirational pep talks out of nowhere.

You'd be friends with my sister, or at least you guys have common interests.

I still have problems with steampunkery, lots of problems. SO MANY DETAILS. SO FREAKING PRECISE. But then again, I have problems with everything I do.
