$15 Character Artworks from Zairyo

Do you remember Zairyo, the artist that did tons of early SARP art for us? Well I contacted him today and he's offering us some really sweet prices.

Here's what he sent me:

OK, so as you may have seen, I've been doing full color "sketches" for the past year or so. These are cheaper than the digitally inked counterparts as they are less demanding. (I'm basically jumping over a whole step with this method and the finished piece is quite similar)

Here's a better way to explain it:

First the rough sketch as always: http://i5.minus.com/i39nEfXocNCIO.jpg (rest of the samples are from a different commission, I'm using this one 'cause it's the only one I kept online. Mostly 'cause I like it even though it didn't get a pass)

Second the sketch itself: http://i1.minus.com/iUg4e5XedMyAa.jpg This is ready for color.

Third is base color and basic shading: http://i3.minus.com/ibuJK0KLB91nNF.jpg

And the final piece: http://i3.minus.com/ibwkvtR9o5aOC2.jpg

These are $15 - $20 each based on complexity, don't see Star Army characters being over $15 since I've drawn them before. While that piece has a background, it's just something generic I threw there so there's no extra cost for that kind of background.

If you want one of these, let me know. Here's the info I need:

Code:
Character Name:
Character wiki page URL:
Character wiki page up-to-date? (Y/N):
Uniform/Clothing Reference URL:
Notes: (Pose, expression, props, etc)

Who is paying, you or Star Army?

If Star Army is paying, answer the following too:

Have you donated to Star Army? (Y/N):
Does your character have existing art? (Y/N):
How long has this character been actively played?: (X Years/X Months)
Plot Character Is In:
Plot's Most Recent Plot Audit Grade:

IMPORTANT: Please read the following notes from the artist:

I don't know Star Army like the back of my hand, I'm very familiar with it yes but I don't know enough to the point of grasping which rank is which, what uniform goes with what or any of that. If the character has previous art (especially if the previous art isn't mine) I take that art as the main reference. When I post the rough sketch I expect all the corrections to be posted with links when necessary (like Wes did here https://stararmy.com/roleplay-forum/...artworks-from-zairyo.16638/page-4#post-243463 ) if after I post the rough I get approval instead of corrections, I move on to the other phase. Getting corrections after approval means I would have to start over. That delays me a lot, so please keep that in mind, I wish I was good enough to do it like a machine but I'm not, I do my best on every request and doing it twice is problematic 'cause it doesn't look the same even when traced.

Illustrating and designing are not the same thing. I'm charging $15 for illustrations, meaning a design or clear concept should exist. This character is the one exception to the rule (just 'cause I want to keep moving) Any future request to design will have to either pay for the design or change it to something that exists.

Power Armor is extra. It MIGHT not be too bad to draw, but it is a pain to paint and in either case not $15. Too complex for that amount. Besides you're better off hiring someone that draws mech stuff if you really want that one to look as good as it should.

Nnh. This seems like a good opportunity, but I've already spent what savings I had for more Star Army commissions earlier this month.

Here's his gallery: http://zairyo.deviantart.com/gallery/ - You can see some SARP stuff in there from last year.

You're welcome to contact him directly if you prefer to commission him yourself.

Alright, we got 4 SARP-commissioned artworks ($60) and 4 @Gunsight1-commissioned artworks ($60). That should be a good start. I'll let Zairyo know.

OK, first let me say hello and thank you all.
Second, I apologize but not every drawing will work full body. You see, the limitations of dealing with paper and scanner makes it harder to provide full body illustrations while maintaining the quality I want from these images. That quality is the whole reason I went back to pencil and paper; I love illustrating digitally, don't get me wrong, but there's a certain something that I just can't get from it. If you squint you can see the point where the other piece of paper starts, hopefully it's no longer noticeable but yea.

This is the base color image, so if you want me to change a color or something, now is the time, after that it's straight to the end. Could post the shading map if interested but that's it.

@Zairyo I wouldn't mind paying extra ($5 each) for you to draw and attach the feet for the ones I'm buying, like you did with this one. Let me know if that would work.

The artwork looks excellent, and I look forward to seeing the next ones!
