So I ordered a picture drawn for Eric

It's supposed to be me, with a gun, dogtags, boots and a cap, and this interesting superhero type leotard I designed.
Got the proof today. LOVE IT.
I'm going to have him do the boots a little differently though--less renaissance, more military. Any other suggestions?

I love love love the height of the boot. But I want it to def be a combat boot. :3

Han, you're the person to ask I think because you seem to be plugged into the online art world. I NEED ILLUSTRATIONS! At least sketches of the characters. I'm just not good/ fast enough to do it, and no one has submitted any fan art. How do I find an artist I can a) afford who will b) come up with pictures that actually work for the characters?

TBH: I drew pictures of a slew of characters (though I'm only particularly pleased with the twins and Elly) but I haven't scanned nor uploaded them since they're sketchy and I don't have the tablet with which to prettify them. I was gonna do that when I got back to school and could borrow somebody's.
Buuutanyway I-m so happy
I have a friend who is really great and has awesomely decent prices.
She ships too. Art student. REALLY gorgeous realistic touch.

Those are two particularly gorgeous styles she does. The first is $9 and the second $25, and she has other stuff on there you can check out I-m so happy
I do know some other good artists with real good prices. The younger (ie: student) artists are likely to have lower prices. (Doesn't mean they aren't good! They just aren't making a living off it)
Part of it is gonna be how well you can express their character (personality and physical) in a short summary to the artist too xD I've no doubts in you dearie I-m so happy But it can be hard for an artist to get something right without help xD

I dropped her a line.

a specific gun. Detail on the boxes might be nice too.

If I get it inked, it'll def be more specific. And the boxes are supposed to say "AMMO" or "AMMUNITIONS" on them. :XD Thanks for reminding me! Biggrin

Ammo cans typically tell what is inside them.

I think the ones that I saw said, ".223 (5.56mm NATO)"

not "ammunition"

OTOH, I am not a fan of the 223 round. 7.62x39 all the way, baby Wink

quite true, yes. We've got the cans and crates to prove it. The husband rater likes the WWII-era rifles. Of course, I have an M1 carbine, too, so I don't have room to bitch.

Might throw in a grenade, or a box of them... they're always fun.

Okay, so I have just wasted even more of my company' s time by browsing through the rest of the drawing on that website posted by Han-Pan. I really have to knuckle down and get more work done this week.

The bondage section is not bad, but could use some more FemDom sketches to hold my interest.

BTW Han-Pan, I agree with you, combat boots would be better and possibly more revealing clothes - or I could just be getting that mixed up with my own fantasies Wink

Robert Quill really is a lovely character, as well as a fabulous artist I-m so happy

And if that's the case, then you should commish art from him!! Blum 3 That site is just what people have ordered, not necessarily what he wants. So if your pref is lacking...then make him make some! Wink

And PS: Yes, that's your fantasies. :XD I specifically told him not naked xP

Third vote for full-on combat boots. I used to wear them back when grunge was big, and honest-to-GI military surplus combat boots do come nearly half-way up your calf. If you opt for a slightly different style, go with the waffle-style tread pattern on the sole. It will get the idea across. Also, combat boots lace all the way up the front.

Other than that, I think it's great! Pinup girls and the US Military have a long history together. This illustration keeps that feel. It's a nice touch of class these days, when you could just snap something x-rated on a cell phone camera (not that those aren't nice to get every now and then).

Lord Playboy's picture

Hey, I did not say naked !

I said more revealing, there is a difference Smile

The pose certainly gets your point across. I agree with the previous posters:

Suggest actual combat boots, like these:
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31KANW112SL._AA280_.jpg although you might not be able to point your toes quite as much

Suggest a real weapon--the M16 is a good standby. The basic model, like this:
http://www.modelguns.co.uk/images/M4A1a.jpg
or upgrade to the M203 for extra boom

*edit* And more revealing wouldn't hurt Wink Might be able to somehow rework the pose so you show a bit more cleavage, even without changing the cut of your leotard.

I like the boots. I'll probably send him a couple different samples/ideas so he can pick, choose, adjust, etc. Yeah, prolly wouldn't be able to bend THAT Much unless the boots were like WOAH broken in XD

As for guns, the only thing about those is that they're...kinda smallish? Comparatively speaking to the position. Am I right? I wouldn't want to lose the pose because I wanted a "real" gun. Are there others that would fit better that aren't like....the 50 cal sniper rifle?? Wink

Clevage clevage xP Boyz and their clevage xD I can ask him. But I wouldn't want to lose the whole sketch cuz of a completely different pose.

Lord Playboy's picture

That was my point, be careful V, you might get told off too !!

but I suspect that if we give her a pack of pixie sticks, in a few minutes she'll be bouncing off the walls and the entire incident will be forgotten. }:)

I like the boots in the current sketch. They look like something Warrin the Woodsman would wear.

Han-pan's picture

Postulant

And I do love them for that ;3 I adore renaissance-esque stuff. It just doesn't quite fit with the gun and ABU cap XD

Qendrix's picture

Perhaps it would be more revealing if the left arm were dropped a bit. That's what seemed to me to be blocking the cleavage everyone wants to see.

Lord Playboy's picture

How is the picture coming along ?

V's picture

are you gonna share it when it's finished, or is it a private gift? }:)

Yes I'll share, shush xP

I haven't seen the new version yet. But I'll post when it comes in. :3
