Commissions open!

Just a friendly reminder that my commissions are always open! I never close them!

The cheapest is sketch portraits at just $15 up to full illustrations at a personal quote. I also do full digital paintings but again these are more expensive and are done on a piece by piece basis.

Check out the full list here

Liv - iZombie by FionaCreates
Liv - iZombie

So I’ve been watching iZombie (cos it’s hillarious good fun) and decided for sunday night fun times to do a speedpaint colour study of the main character, Olivia. So far I’m loving the wardrobe and make up choices in the show, esp how they make her look all pale and dead.

I had to stop myself refining forever, as this was just meant to be a lighting study and the last lighting study I started has become a series of 8 portraits I have been working on for over a year, so I decided to just let this one go for once!

So I've been a little sparse at posting lately, mostly because I've taken a little mental "vacation" from "serious" artwork and have been instead just having fun doing colourful character designs over at fionadoesadopts

I decided for fun and comparison reasons to throw everything I've done for adopts together onto one canvas to see what style is emerging etc when I don't worry too much and identify things to improve and things that are working, so I thought I'd also just share it here too as a reminder I am not dead, I just made over 30 character designs on another account cos... I did.

If you're interested you can check them out here --> fionadoesadopts
If you're waiting for more illustration work I have so much half finished stuff to mess about with I hope to get some done soon!

I also made a tutorial about designing things over at that account if you're interested.

Ombre hair experiment has been a success!! Now I need to start making some dastardly plans with this new technique...
Commission - Budded by FionaCreates
Commission - Budded
A "Celestial Being" that I designed for budded

It certainly called on a new skillset, I had to learn how to make space art! (It was fun!)

Commissions are always open so get in touch if you have something you want drawing.

You have an interesting style that reminds me of cutouts and storybook illustrations :o

Thank you :D It's a fun style to work in because what colours you use becomes more important than how well you shade them (and for years I was an obsessive shader so I made myself work like this to learn colour and then fell in love)

Ooh that's interesting. So you basically try to incorporate colors as the shade? I really love the color style and am also trying to not to shade but it's so hard since it keeps creeping in. Do you have any tips are preventing that? D:

If you're totally new you can start with just greyscale and pick like 8 tones and make a drawing with only those 8 tones. Shading is ok but you have to use one of the 8 tones.

You can then progress to art on a gradient scale, pale orange to dark blue is good for this and you do the same thing. Where you want dark bits you use one of your dark blues and where you want pale you use your oranges

Once you understand these you can then use any colours you like because really the secret to good low colour count work is good composition utilising the colours and the darks and lights not just to say "this belt is blue this t shirt is orange" but to draw attention to and from areas of interest.

You can kinda get away with bad composition when you're going for "technical wow factor" with shading because everyone's going to look at it and go "OMG YOU SHADE SO GOOD!" and be impressed with your realism. But you can always play with composition using tones and low colour work and learn what you're doing and take it back to high colour shading and then you'll not just be a good technical realist/painter but a good artist.
