Ritzy-Ditzy Digi-Arty
Hullo! I'm hysteriX. You can call me Hyst, Rix, or whatever really catches your fancy. I've been doing art for a couple years now, and I hope to be doing it for a lot longer! Here I've come up with a poor, unimaginative name and slapped a hopefulyl more imaginative digital art store for all y'all under it. Sorry if it's a tad haphazard - I'm not truly the type to do fancy banners for all my little things.

My main rules are to, ah, follow the site's and A&D board's rules. I would also like y'all to be even a tiny bit courteous! I am allowed to work on orders in any order. You are free to put in multiple orders as long as you use one form per character (scene?) - do note I am still free to do the orders in any, ah, order. I am allowed to decline an order. I am free to modify the form if I want. I will also ask of you all to put up with a bit of nagging if I (a) want more description on your characters, or (b) want to show you the sketch of the drawing to get your suggestions/approval!

This is mainly a shop for people, mainly characters. They do not have to be Pokemon characters, but it could be fun if they were! Do note: I am but DECENT at drawing Pokemon. Please don't expect me to draw a Hydreigon - I do better with Pokemon like Lilligant or Sableye, even. Humanoid Pokemon would be much easier.

Here are a few examples I've picked from my gallery that, ah, kinda have different styles.

Flat color sketch
A more sketchy example.
This is me as a Gym Leader, actually, haha.

This one has cleaner lineart, for those that prefer that.

Shaded pictures - little/no background

Semi-realistic? portraiture - NOTE! Only available if your character's design really wows! me (I am still practicing with this style). Please offer another choice of style if you choose this one.

I am also happy to draw multiple characters.

I know you said this was a shop, or sort of like one (I've yet to figure out what that means, exactly. I've assumed it's a PC-ism for request thread), but I'm not here for anything other than commentary, if you'd like.

I really like the style of your artwork. I sort of had an idea, looking at your avatar. Most people on this section of the forum draw their own avatar or signatures, so it's like a little preview of how someone prefers to illustrate.

The first two I think are rather nifty, the lineart may be cleaner in the second, but I actually like the rougher take of the first. I also like the face on the first picture. It's the teeth/tooth and the hair. Extra touches like that add a lot of charm. The only thing I'd say is the the first two pics seem a bit leggy? Bottom heavy? I dunno what the correct term would be, but imagine if you where to place these into a triangle pointing upwards. You'll see that from the base upward, things start to taper off a bit.

I really like what you did with the second picture. I'm kind of stupid when it comes to terminology of anything that's not video game production or animation production, so I really don't know what you'd call a work like that one. It looks like concept art, and I dig that roughness. I enjoy the color choice a lot, too. That's one of my favorite things to do, is to check out how people utilize color.

I like the last picture too. I'm confused about what's beyond the guy's nose. There's something right after it, what is that, I wonder? Haha, it must be something I'm just not seeing.

Overall, really nice style. It'll be interesting to see other things from you.

I've been led to assume a shop is simply a request thread. :'D

Thank you so much for all the nice comments! The first two were done on actually two very different program - (Sketchbook Express for the first, which attempts to emulate traditional drawing, and Paint Tool Sai for all the rest haha). And I am very well-aware most of my women are very bottom heavy lol. I have to really try for characters that are more apple-shaped, or even normal hourglass shaped. xD Unless you mean in general that the legs are long? I tend to do that as well. Whoops.

For me, it's a reference sheet. A very sparse reference sheet, but one nonetheless. I really like to study color theory myself, and since this is a warm character (both in personality and abilities - see the fiery thing) I just had to give her a warm-colored design.

That's actually a lady lol. It's supposed to be a horn - the same thing that is jutting out from the right side of her head. I realize it's confusing; it makes more sense if you've seen the character. xD

And I hope to put more things too, just as soon as someone from the roleplay section of the forum goes "!!! draw my character please!"

i love your sketchy and painting artwork. i love all of the shades. it looks so different. it's like your own style.
what bothers me is the heavy black outlines. try to make a darker shade to match the inside color so it doesn't look like a heavy outline.
the people drawings are different, i wish they looked more realistic. they kind of look boxy to me that's my opinion tho.
can't wait to see more.

Patrick January 8th, 2013 5:18 PM

I like your new stuff and your new sig, too. Man, I think I just like your style a lot overall. :3 I'll definitely stay tuned to whatever you've got.

I don't know if I used bottom heavy correctly. XD; I meant the legs, though, but I think you get the idea. As for drawing people of different sizes, hey, that's a good thing. For some people, it's hard to break out of a certain mold, despite the fact that not all people look the same. It's admittingly one of the few things I don't think anime style broadcasts very well (though I suppose I blame that either on the originators or the way beauty is perceived in Japan? And I mean beauty in the very general sense).

Why do I always treat everyone's thread like a conversation? Probably because I love the A & D section. Too much good stuff.

*notices "rarely Pokemon" in sig* Yeah, someone needs to change that. :3 I don't want to be that guy (but I will), come on dudes. Save me from myself. This is just a silly way of saying I don't like making requests but poop, it's not easy to fight sometimes.

Wow that pony is cute! The gryffon is also quite interesting but I'm a little curious as to what you want me to do with them? Are they a couple, bros, or what?

Thank yooouuuu! An interesting pony for sure! I may tweak the color scheme lightly to fit the style of the picture, but other than that, you should expect it soon!

So many ponies. @_@ I'll get started on the lot of them tonight, hopefully. Sorry for the long wait everyone!

Cutielaurenie January 14th, 2013 6:09 PM

They are bros, like best friends or something like that. o3o
