This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph.
Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.
If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.
And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.
People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.
Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.
I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.
And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.
since a lot of you were asking.
Tutorial: Choosing Interesting Colors by PurpleKecleon
Watch Mel Herring’s (PurpleKecleon) full tutorial on choosing interesting colors HERE. She takes you through her entire process of this piece while talking about how to choose colors to create harmony in your piece!

It was a lot of fun, thanks CGcookie for the chance to make something to help others out!
Drew this on an app called SketchBookX! AWESOME. THOUGH it does seem this site likes to crop photos? Ah well, looks nice with a filter too.
I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)
Here’s a handy dandy color reference chart for you artists, writers, or any one else who needs it! Inspired by this post x
A rather effed up Skyward Sword Link shirt design.
Inspired by the idea that the hearts around Skyloft are fruit growing from the ground!
I love collecting hearts in Skyward Sword. The little sound it makes is so cute. I like to think of them as… Kisses from Zelda, I spose. It’s what keeps him going when things get rough.
It’s up for sale on Redbubble
First off, I gotta start off with the typical Disclaimer.
This is a tutorial based off of MY knowledge and MY experience. My advice is just that, advice, and is not is anyway, shape or form, absolute. I am still learning and do not consider myself a professional or…
sometimes I forget that rulers work with tablets and I get really frustrated with my inability to freehand straight lines
YOU COULD DO THIS
