Closing Out 2016

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 22, 2016, 11:23 AM

Hey, everyone. Got some news to share.

This whole year has been pretty hectic for me and my bro. Not a bad kind of hectic… but hectic none the less. We both got promotions at our jobs earlier this year. My promotion came with a move halfway across the country… twice.

All the stuff going down is for the best in the long run, but in the short term it has really put a hamper on my free time. Its increasingly more of a challenge to find the time to sit down and communicate with the people I need to – let alone find the time to get commission work done. Between getting a new driver’s license, registering in a new state, moving, unpacking and repacking and getting used to my new job – its been a lot.

In the past – I’ve always prided myself in having a quick turnaround for most of my commissions. I think that is what a lot of you liked about my work, and its probably what kept a few of you coming back for more. I just haven’t been able to stay on top of that this year. Even the easy ones take too long for my tastes from start to finish. Carving out the time to talk specifics, draw and color is just a monster chore right now.

So as of today, I will be closing my commissions for a little while. Not forever, but for a few months at least. I’ve got no date as to when I’ll be back, but I know it will not be November or December. I’m aiming for early next year.

For the 5 of you already on my to do list, fret not. I will get your pictures done before I call it quits. In fact, you should be hearing from me sooner rather than later, to wrap up the final details on the images you want. So keep your eyes on your inbox for that.

 

This will give me the chance I need to square away my life in my new surroundings – and handle the busy season at work. It will also give me some time to tackle a few more drawings for myself. That’s always nice. Few things I’d like to practice on too.

 

Don’t worry about old BroDogz though. I’ll still be around if you want to talk. Honestly, looking over the horizon at all the sweet games coming my way, (Pokemon Sun/Moon, Sonic Mania, Persona 5, Horizon Zero Dawn – the Nintendo Switch) it won’t be all too long before my wallet is feeling the crunch and I’ll need to make some extra $$$ by doing commissions again. LOL

 

I’ll be back to it before you know it. ^^

Commission: Anna - With Feeling
:iconshadowphil666: chose to order up another commission from me a while back so I figure it’s around time I got around to posting this thing.

This image is a depiction of an OC named Anna, caught in a blissful state as she plays a customized guitar. It’s a very soulful piece so I tried to really play up the environmental effects to project a feeling of passion to the viewer.

You can really see Anna getting into her craft here. She is not simply playing, but rather feeling the music as it echoes from the instrument. This is an angle I don’t have too much experience tackling even considering the numerous images I have drawn up to this point. Needless to say this commission served as a fun departure and a big learning experience.

Thanks a bunch to shadowphil666 for ordering up another commission. It means more than you know.

My commissions are currently closed at the moment, so if your looking to buy one from me, you will need to wait a bit. Feel free to check out my price chart in the meantime though.

Knuckles - One More Solid Hit--

Ah, this is a pic of Knux I dug out of my sketch book and decided to color in. It was also a good excuse to play with some foreground effects.

 

Knux heard what your said. He’s coming for you. Angry Knuckles is Angry. 

 

LOL

Comm: Twilight and Zephyr - A Little Bump
:iconzephyr093: earned another notch on his BroDogz frequent flyer card. He’s back and ordering up another commission

I usually know the drill when it comes to these commissions. Twilight and his OC Zephyr as they are engaged in any number of little incidents. For this occasion, he asked me to mock up something of a minor collision between the two.

Its always a nice chance to flex the artistic muscles with some unique pose work. As with most things, a little bit of planning goes a long way. Knowing that Zep, a stallion, has quite a bit of a size advantage over Twi, it was easy to envision that the smaller pony would be on the losing end of even a minor collision. So our little princess is doing her best to catch herself, but she’s all left hooves at this point and she’s destined for a tumble.

The background is no place in particular. Just a generic MLP castle.

Cool, another commission bites the dust. A big thanks to zephyr093 for ordering up another piece of commission work. Glad you think enough of me to keep coming back. ^^

Espio - Night Patrol

Ah, this was a quick warm up sketch I did before knocking out a commission. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to draw up my buddy Espio, so I figured why not and just went for it.

I slapped a background on there just for fun. I happened to be listening to pumpkin hill at the time. Trying to get in the mood for Halloween lol.

 

Nothing special. Just me having a little fun. ^^

Hi there, BroDogz.


Last weekend I’ve uploaded a drawing in my gallery. It’s a Sonic fan character that I’m planning to use as my internet reviewer persona for a possible series. I was wondering if you would tell me what you think of him. Here’s a link to the said drawing. But I should warn you, I’m NOT a good drawer.

Hmm, well right off the bat you shouldn't feel that drawing talent has much to do with the design phase. How you conceptualize and visualize shouldn't make much of a difference, even if the coat of paint isn't as fancy. The important thing is to sort out your ideas, and that's exactly what you've done here. So thats good.

Okay, onto this guy. I'll start by giving you points for originality. You always want to have something that sets your character apart from the crowd. A lot of people make the mistake of giving their characters outlandish colors or some out of place eccentricities that don't fit in with the character design of the franchise. Its one thing to make an OC, but its another thing entirely to make a Sonic OC. If you're going for the latter, and your male character is wearing pants for example, you are probably headed in the wrong direction.

As for what you did, going for the badnik angle is admirable, but that seems to be the extent of where you took the idea. You're badnik follows little of what makes badnik's what there are. There are two types of badniks. Fighter models, like EggPawns, the E-Series and EggRobo's and the cute little guys like the caterkillers and buzzbombers. You seem to be aiming for the former - however you were a bit off the mark in your execution.

Eggman's fighter class badniks from the games all share the same ovoid body shape. They are all top heavy and they all bear no shortage of Eggman's basic design flairs. Your bot is cylindrical in nature, which is a departure from the norm. It carries design elements that come from other franchises (you mentioned power rangers and Wall-E). While those are fine additions to the character, they also serve to detract from what he is supposed to be. The more of that stuff like that you add in, the more you take away from his original purpose as a badnik. If I were to give my Sonic fancharacter a mega buster, I would be blending the line a bit as to what my fancharacter was supposed to represent. The same is true for you're badnik character. If thats what you want him to be, then he needs to be Eggman first, everything else second.

The color scheme is fine. If its something that represents you, then by all means go with the flag decals. Its something that you can latch onto and feel a sense of immersion and integration. By all means go for it.

As a character, it seems like a well thought out and executed design. If you were happy with the way it looks and want to leave it at that you'd be all fine and dandy. It is fine as an OC. However as a badnik it does leave something to be desired. If you really want to have it fall in line with Eggman's mass produced mooks then you need to put a little bit more time into designing a body frame that fits in with the docs other creations. It needs more compartmentalization. More segments, and don't sleep on the Egg shape.

Good work. I'll just leave you these tips to help you make it even better. ^^
