Forums » Art & Creativity » Draw for the Person Above You (Traditional!)

Hi there!

So The recent DftPAY forum that pops up on occasion, while wonderful definitely!, is digital only; So for a few reasons, I'm going to start a traditional thread for this kind of thing :D


IDEA: You essentially claim the person above you to draw out a character for them, traditionally, and then deliver! Free art for other artists! Kind of like mini art trades in a way c:


RULES:
  • Feel free to give a pencil / charcoal sketch, something like lineart, a watercolor piece, whatever! So long as it's traditional! :D
  • Make sure you post under the person you want to draw for and claim them! This keeps the thread moving and makes sure that people don't accidentally end up getting two pieces from two people who wanted to doodle for them!
  • When you finish a piece for someone, just edit your claimed spot comment; This keeps the thread nice and clean!
    This can be both a "Edit: <image>" or a collapse tag with the image in it, a link, whatever! Just make sure it's in the same comment as your claim to the person c:
  • Feel free to post as many claims as you want to people! So long as you're drawing for people as you're supposed to, then feel free to keep playing!
  • If you don't want to draw any given characters from the person above you, but want to claim someone, then feel free to wait until another person posts. You have to draw for the person above you c:
  • Give at least 2-3 characters as an option, so the person who claims you has a choice!; If you only have one character to your name though, then that's fine! But if you have more, giving a choice is often nice ;)
  • Please make sure you can get your piece out within 1-2 weeks; If the person who claimed you does not draw for you in this time, feel free to contact them with a gentle poke, or DM me and I'll try to sort things out c:
    If your artist is unable to finish your piece, for whatever reason, PLEASE DM ME
  • QUALITY: I'm not asking for perfectly scanned quality here, but something nice is required. A blurry picture with a bunch of shadows on the image, or a finger poking into the picture isn't good quality. The lighting doesn't have to be perfect, but at least make sure your image is legible!
    Instagram filters are great for this sort of thing!
  • This is not a commission! If you have a very specific level of quality and detail in mind, maybe go look at the many awesome commission forums that artists have available on the site! This is just a little forum for fun, so make sure your character page has plenty of references if you're looking for anything -seriously- specific!
  • I think that's a good amount of rules? I'll edit these as necessary c:



List of Backup Artists: (If you're willing to doodle a 'makeup piece' for someone who's artist was unable to draw for them (as rare as I'm hoping that is) feel free to DM me and get your name added here!)

i’m sorry the lighting is very bad but i tried to edit the pictures to the best of my ability; please do let me know if you’d rather prefer some photos in a better quality lighting and not some taken at 7pm :P also, i apologize for her fur; i decided i made it too dark and wanted to lighten it but the liquid in my pen decided to explode on her face o.o

Evron.
Hey! I would love to claim one of your characters, but your links don't seem to work any longer. Can you throw out some new ones for me?

Edit: Actually, none of the links on this thread seem to be working for me, even my own. Gonna open a ticket! Still want to be able to choose someone to draw though!

Another Edit: Kim fixed it!

I shall claim Evron!

((Please note that I have two kids, a job and it's the holidays. It may take me a bit longer to get around to finishing it, but I promise it will get done!))

I put forth Madam Vanya or Jie Liu.

Not a claim.

I agree with Crow! After all, I even paid for a commission from you! Your style is unique and adorable. Own that sh*t!
