The art of Brooke Battista.
Aspiring concept artist for video games.

Beyond concept art stuff, I draw a lot of Hiei's, Umbreons, and Homestuck fan art.

I will occasionally have personal commissions open now and then while looking for work.

Commissions are currently: OPEN

I’m still doing some palette requests, just had a busy day today and didn’t really have time to work on them while minding the garage sale. 

I’m going to do the ones in my inbox right now, but I won’t be accepting any more beyond this point.

We had a garage sale today so I doodled a bit. I made a killing on socks. I had a lot of socks to sell.
Also I forgot Equius’s horns until I had already shaded and purple pencil is difficult to erase so??? I guess this is humanstuck and Nepeta just likes cat headbands.
Man I don’t know I’m tired

I have decided that, although I’ve previously stated that I won’t do commissions of fan art, I will make an exception to the rule if the third party has granted permission for as such. 

So after reading MSPaint’s Comprehensive Homestuck Sales FAQ, I have decided that I will accept Homestuck commissions as long as they fall under those parameters (which really should be fine).

More human Eridans for more RP shenanigans. 
I also kinda wanted to take a break from sticking to limited palettes. It’s somewhat liberating though a bit more of a challenge to keep things unified.

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.

THIIIIS.

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.

This post is really nice! :D

I realised my last post was kind of vague so as much as it hurts to talk about it, I figure I should elaborate on what exactly is going on and why I’m in the situation I’m in right now.

For the past year and a half, my husband has been pretty nasty to me. He’s put me through a lot of emotional…

This is still very much a thing. I’m moving into my new apartment in the next week or so and things are looking less dire, but as it stands I can’t look for a new job until I am settles in and I can’t take on any new commissions right now because I am already way behind and the emotional turmoil of this divorce combined with the MRSA infection I just had as well as my laptop starting to fall apart is kind of making it difficult to be productive.

Please read and circulate this if you can’t donate… It would mean a lot to me.

Why “credit to the owner” is one of the shittiest things you can do to an artist.

gabbiness:

I see it on social media all the time. Someone posts art that they did not create, and below the illustration write; "credit to the owner", or makes an amv containing art, with no links or names to the original artists.

This is a really shitty thing to do and let me tell you why.

I work fulltime as a freelance artist. It’s really hard work, especially if you’re just starting out like I am (been doing it for a little more than a year).
You have to constantly share your art and advertise yourself to the world. Hunt work wherever you think you can find it.
There’s a lot of artists out there competing for work, and it’s a constant battle.

One of the most important things for a working artist is to be seen.
Getting an audience, getting people to share your art or talk about it. If the right people see your art, it could lead to work.

So if you post work by an artist, make sure to credit properly! Link to the artists dA/tumblr/blog/whatever. Zerochan and weheartis are not sources!

If you don’t know who made the art, look for the source! There’s a lot of different ways to do this!
If you still can’t find the original art, simply don’t post it.
Don’t. Post. It.

You might just want something ‘pretty’ to have on your blog, and you just “found the art on google!”, but don’t be lazy.
Look for the source and credit the hard work of the artist.

Not adding credit when posting other peoples art is robbing an artist of future work. As dramatic as it sounds, you’re killing the artist.

Do you stream when you draw often? :D

I used to stream every Friday a little while back, but I haven’t been streaming lately.

I might try out that alternative to procaster soon, though, so I might start streaming on Fridays again! Otherwise I haven’t been streaming much at all.
