So every night before I start my commission work (which is my job n' stuff) I do a warmup sketch/doodle of something.
Usually it's one of my own characters (usually the newer ones). But it gets really boring to draw my own characters over and over again and my friends are notoriously fronkin' difficult to get character descriptions from.
So basically I'm looking for unwitting schmuck-...er. Willing volunteers. To draw. >_>
And yes, these will be completely free.
I will be doing these every night until further notice! (I take sundays and mondays off as my weekend.)
But do you suck at drawing, Baen?
Not entirely, but I still am not as good as I want to be.
1) Post as many descriptions as you like!
2) Don't repost your descriptions. I saw them the first time :3
3) These are sketches. No complaining about the lack of colour or fantastically clean lines.
4) Constructive criticism is great! But again, free sketches.
5) Don't complain that I haven't drawn your character. This is a good way to get me to never draw your character.
6) Please do not ask me to draw ...'adult' art. I have no problems with it but I would really like to be able to post the finished sketches to this thread, and I can't do that if they're NSFW. :P
There are no guarantees about getting a sketch. I don't (and won't) have any real kind of system for picking what to draw. Some nights I wanna draw cool stuff, other nights I'll just want a simple kind of character to doodle. It's all up in the air.
Also, this isn't a frakkin' popularity contest. I'm not beelining for any friends in this thread- everyone has as much chance of getting a sketch as everyone else.
So now that I'm done blowing this way out of proportion and sounding really pretentious- post some character descriptions, will ya?
These will be black and white sketches. There is no colour. I do not care what colour your character's eyes are, so don't bother including it.
Here's a template since we're all lazy-
Physical Build: (Stick figure, stout, beefcake, athletic, flabby, etc. Include reference pictures if you like)
Usual Demeanour: (Cheery, irritated, chillax'd, spacey, etc)
Garb: (Nekkid, robes, water wings, armour, etc. Details and reference pictures are gud.)
Scars/Markings: (Facial tats, piercings, maggots in cranium, etc.)
Other Notes/Reference Pictures:

Thanks for the requests, guys! I'll only have time for one a night (unless I get bored and want to do more during the day) so although these will be coming out slowly, don't hesitate to post more :3
I liked what I saw in your drawings. I think you have a good grasp on people's definitive features. If you'd like to give drawing Dorick a go that would be cool.
Name: Dorick the Steadfast
Visual Age: Late thirties/early forties - real age 42
Hairstyle: Head completely shaven, but greasy. Facial hair is as it appears in the armory but with stubble everywhere else instead of a clean shave.
Physical Build: (Copied from my MRP.) Dorick is a gruff middle-aged man who looks to be in his late thirties. His coarse and bristly facial hair frames his jaw evenly in stubble and his bent nose looks like it has been broken and healed a dozen times.
His head he keeps shaven, for he is a perpetually greasy man and his hair is the worst of it. Broad thick shoulders, a muscular body, short height and a short neck give Dorick a rectangular shape.
Edit: He's 5'7" if that helps.
Edit: He's a hairy man besides. His arms and chest and legs and back are hairy and so on. Even them backhands, fingers, feet and toes are hairy.
Usual Demeanour: Dorick is a man who has grown from burning hatred and perpetual vengeful rage to a warrior of grim determination and unwavering resolve. If you've played dragon age then think of Loghain's expression. Almost always on the brink of a scowl, but never roaring or raging.
Garb: Same as his armory picture. He wears that combination of dark plate armor and the tabard.
Scars/Markings: Other than his broken nose which I mentioned earlier, nothing else of note.
Edited by Dorick on 9/29/2012 6:22 AM PDT
Name: Björn Blackmane
Visual Age: 28
Hairstyle: Black(raven black for cute and sex), wild like, large bushy ponytail and hanging strains. Bushy beard. BIG forest of chest hair, like run fingers through and graspable.
Physical Build: Stocky, 5'10. (If you need more info...I think ruggedly handsome fits him well, I don't know but yea surprise me <3)
Usual Demeanour: Cheery, happy, abit cocky and self-less
Garb: (CHANGED MY MIND, wanna see a shirtless B...gotta show off that hair baby!) Shirtless. Pants and a belt on.
Around his neck is a silver necklace of a kaldorei woman holding up a cresent and both of his ears pierced with small wooden tauren totems. He also has an amulet around his neck with the Cenarion Circle symbol on it. Talk about that bling! Hopefully that's enough to make art from.
Scars/Markings: Left side of his face is covered in swirling blue pattern tattoos that interlock. He has a few scars over his body, some in the middle of his eyebrow that's kinda pronounced. Both his wrist are tattoo'd with green ivy that wrap around it.
Feel free to add Thea on his shoulder or not.
Plenty of Fae art!
