Whoa she really lovely here I loved the story growing up and I like how you did her tail, just very magical about her. I mean you really nailed it on the mark i think. ^^ I hope the person was happy with it ^^
thanks, glad ya like her...and yes the client was very pleased with it, it's one of my nicer con sketches, I'm not usually comfortable drawing at conventions-like drawing at home where I can relax more and concentrate on the work.
I drew this at a convention, not the most comfortable of environments for me, but this was one of my better results, plus the client was happy with it-in fact he was a huge Disney fan, told him I worked for Disney and that I can do their version of the character, but he requested my adaptation...although at the end I was sorely tempted to add "Flounder" and "Sebastian" to the piece.
Agreed! animorphic characters are a challenge, haven't tackled a Centaur yet but I'm sure it will be a small nightmare when I get it...
Hehe.. my first convention I ever had a table at my second commission was of a sexy topless female. I was wo nervous and uncomfortable drawing her there. Ah, memories... It doesn't really bother me now since I do have an entire portfolio of soft-core hentai except when there are kids around, then I feel like I have to be constantly looking over my shoulder. Plus now I'm all about making the client happy so I'm not really uncomfortable drawing a lot of things as long as it makes the client happy (I do have limits though!).
I can understand why the client was happy with her. You did a good job on her!
You work for Disney? That's neat.
I've only drawn some catgirls, mermaids and a couple nagas. In 3D, I've done mermaids, centaurs, nagas, and even a frog queen and every time it seems to be a bit of a challenge no matter how many of that creature I've done before. The worst part about the centaurs for me is that horse anatomy is so different from anything I normally work with. I'm sure you'll do great though!
....I wasn't really nervous...just physically uncomfortable, I'm just used to working on my drafting table, at cons I'm leaning a board on a flat table plus there is the inevitable accidental table bump which can screww up things. I've seen artists ink and paint things at cons...just not that brave!
Worked for Disney, but not as an artist, pretty hard to impossible to get into especially If you don't have any formal art training or education, no I worked in the parks, specifically the Disney/MGM Studios-for 5 years.
What is a Naga?
Ah yes, working at cons can be frustrating. Small, unideal work spaces make it hard.
Working at MGM Studios would be cool. It's one of my favorite parks there.
A naga is a half human/half snake. They're depicted differently depending on the mythology but mostly have a human torso with a snake like tail instead of legs (think a mermaid on land). Here's a wiki article if you want to read more [link] Too much info, isn't it? I do that...
