Belle of the Ball


In October my friend Mike sent me a link for a possible illustration job that I might be interested in over at the blog of one Game creator/art director, Daniel Solis (his blog is here: danielsolisblog.blogspot.com/ and the post in question is here: danielsolisblog.blogspot.com/2… ).
I sent over an e-mail linking to my gallery here on deviant art with little expectations as to a reply. Man, was I wrong - sometime shortly after I'd written to him, I got a response right away about doing some test portraits!
I was pretty excited after that, and got to work doodling tons and tons of different faces of varying ages (it was during this process that I learned how insipidly fun drawing moustaches are).
It took me a month due to school work and other commissions that I had to work on (of which I need to finish here in the next couple of days because those poor people deserve their art).

But, I'm really happy and excited to say that I finished up the inks on six portraits yesterday. Today, there's a lovely mashup of sketches, including the final inks of some of the designs I sent over for Daniel's approval. He wrote this glowing, and shining review of working with me, and I have to thank him so much for the chance to do this job.
Up until this point, I've only done small commissions - for friends businesses or tattoo designs, or these small $5 bust commissions. I'd never done anything larger than that, so I definitely feel like I've gotten at least one more step in the right direction thanks to Daniel!

I'll be posting up the final inks of the six portraits later today for everyone who wants to see each illustration on its own, but for those who'd like to read the wonderful blog post Daniel wrote, well, here you go: danielsolisblog.blogspot.com/2…

Thanks Daniel!

Here are the six portraits in question:

So that's the reason you were absent in Emy's LS, or maybe I'm wrong at this hippie OJ is messing with my memories. Anticipating to see the result.

hahaha, yes, that's why I've been absent (that and copious amounts of economics and history homework to contend with). But I've got some time now and I did make a few random appearances, but I should be there more often now~ :heart:

nice to know I was missed :heart::heart::heart:
