Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you.
I keep thinking
about making fanart and sometimes I even mumble about making making fanart, but I haven't made the commitment and, tbh, fan art of video game characters using digital tools (rather than traditional art tools) leaves me in a state of O_O: ...it is pretty much the exact opposite in every way imaginable of the kind of art I am competent at.
THEREFORE IT IS PERFECT FOR TRYING SOMETHING NEW. And flailing wildly until I get the hang of it.
To put pressure on me, I am open to prompts that I will work on during my (lol) copious "free time" throughout 2019
. That gives me ample time to complete ten prompts. I'll take up to ten prompts requests. Here are the rules:
1. Valid fandoms are limited to:
---- Final Fantasy VII / Compilation of VII
---- Final Fantasy XII & FFXII:Revenant Wings
---- Dragon Age: Origins (and DLCs)
---- Dragon Age II (and DLCs)
---- Dragon Age Inquisition (base game only)
---- Persona 5
2. Prompt in the format: "Fandom; Characters-or-pairing (list up to 3 characters); short prompt
3. One prompt per person.
4. Do not leave prompts that
require an explicit sexual interpretation.
5. Please prompt something different
from what other people have already prompted.
6. AU prompts are allowed! Warning/disclaimer/facts-of-life:
I will work on these prompts over the coming months (and perhaps throughout 2019 depending on how little time I have). No guarentees about what my style will look like or what will actually occur because OMFG I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT WILL HAPPEN. WE ARE ON THIS JOURNEY TOGETHER AND .... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
NOTE: I am going to reserve a 0th prompt for myself (a prompt I create for myself) that gives me a warmup for just figuring out how I even want to start doing
digital fan art**. BECAUSE THIS IS A JOURNEY FULL OF ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
[** I am a traditional/analog artist but I also know how to use photoshop and sketchbook pro for a variety of things, mostly design related work, and my digital illustration experience is limited ... thus this pledge to do something new] Prompt Slots to be filled during 2019 (approx 1 per month minus my travel/vacation month):
