AugustC4 Fanart 1 by dawnsierra AugustC4 Fanart 1 by dawnsierra
I just adore August's artwork so I asked him if it would alright if I did a little doll based on one of his characters. He's such a sweetheart... :blush:
Anywho I picked my favorite of his character, shes unnamed at the moment I believe, and attempted to doll her. You'll find the picture I used for reference here. Ok so I know I know.. I could have done better but oh well. I was going to do a background.. in fact I might go back and make her a little background though I think she'd call for something very mecha and detailed. The curls are pitiful.. oh my gosh I'm sooo disappointed in them and I know if I had days more to work on this I would certainly redo them. (Right now they look like a combination of an old judge's wig and sausages.)
Gosh hm.. don't know what else to say. Aside from the fact it took me wayyyy too long to draw and the pose and style probably doesn't suite the character AT ALL. Also I would have preferred having one of my doller friends check it for mistakes before uploading but I've got other projects I need to get working on.
So thats it.. my first fan art for a fellow dever... I can't recommend his gallery enough. Lovely works that are a neverending source of inspiration for doodlers such as myself. :D

This doll is mine all mine DO NOT distribute in any way without my express permission. (Unless your augustc4.. then have at it buddy.. I made it for you. hehe) Also DO NOT edit this piece.. I know it could use improvment but leave it alone... seriously.. thanks anyways.

oh, she's sooooo cute!! you did a great job for dolling *augustc4's character :clap:
she's named Bianca, btw :D

i wanna ask you some questions: why pixel art always so small? is it difficult to make them bigger? :confused: i've no idea how to make pixel art :slow:

Thank you!!!! :hug:

Well theres alllll sizes of pixel art.. both isometric and non-isometric. I tend to do mostly non-isometric, meaning flat and lacking that 3-d perspective. Making them smaller means they don't take nearly so long to do. lol One excellent example of non-isometric at its finest in much much larger size would be Jaeden's pixel art. I can do larger pixel art like my website layout for instance at Sunrise Mountain but being I draw one pixel at a time using my mouse it can take a very long time. Granted I'm slower than most pixelers... this doll took me about 3 or 4 days. So its pretty simple.. smaller = less time.. larger = more impressive but LOTS OF TIME.. hehe
(that was a long way around a short answer)

Awww.. I'm so glad you like it. :glomp:

Hm.. charge? What is this charge of which you speak? lol
Well I actually couldn't sell this or any other doll made on a base that is not my own. I have bases I've made myself however they wouldn't fit the feminine/curvy characters you've made. :blush:
(Unless I made some new bases to fit the style of your characters to use for dolls... but dang.. I dunnnoo.. that could be aloott of work. lol I'm lazy..)
I would love to make more though.. your characters are perfect for dolling. She took a while to make but she was fun to do. :D

I'm still trying to think of some way to convince you to do more of these :giggle:
an art trade or something like that maybe? :confused:

but it's okay if you can't or don't want to, I understand. I'm just so excited about this piece :love:
thanks again so much :glomp:

:excited: That would ROCK.. I would LOVE that. lol Though I have no idea if I could improve much more on my next attempt. Though I'm giving it a go anyways.. I'm making the blue hair character now... gaa her hair is killin' me. haha :giggle:
My hubby mentioned to me, in confidence (so shhh..), that I MIGHT MIGHT MIGHT be getting a tablet for Christmas. If this is the case I may be able to make bases much more easily. Right now I'm doing everything by mouse (on a blurry computer moniter no less) so it slows me down quite a bit.

So the answer is YES YES YES I would love to do an art trade though I've never done one before so you'd have to fill me in on the details. I could always do with a portrait of yours truly.. done in your own very cool style (if this IS possible hey let me know and I'll send ya some piccies.) hehe :blush:

Ok this is my hushing up now.. (I tend to ramble).. make to work on my next doll. ;)

I could try to draw you in my style :giggle:
you might not like what I come up with but then again, you might approve ^^
I'd be so happy to give it a whirl as a way to say thank you for the dolls thatiLOVE :hug:

as for the tablet... you've gotta convince your husband to buy it if he hasn't already... :paranoid:
continually drop hints until christmas morning!!!!!! :D

lol! :giggle:

Well its not in our budget butttttt.... my dear old Daddy MIGHT just be able to swing it if he finds a deal on ebay (my chances are good here... hes a gadget man with an ebay obsession.. hehe)
Well let me see if I can find a picture of myself (that I don't despise) and send it your way. You could be as creative as you like but please don't go to much trouble. just some quick doodle would be awesome. Maybe I could even use it for my devID. Just if you have the time and all.. no biggie... :D

I've got a lot of stuff going on at the moment with commissions and school wrapping up. but I've gotta take time to relax at some point right? doing art for fun is always relaxing :D and don't worry, I'll find the time :nod:

gah, I really hope you get that tablet. it'll make you love digital art so much more!!!
