[Art] Illustrated Encounters
« on: August 15, 2020, 02:59:49 PM »

In this thread, you can get illustrations of your kin! These come in the form of 800x800 squares (or sometimes rectangles of other dimensions) in a fully lined, shaded, colored, non-anti-aliased style focusing on action and storytelling. There will be an atmospheric background, because I really like drawing backgrounds. These illustrations can be scenes from an RP (my preferred thing to do, actually), or scenes from something in your kin’s life that haven’t been written out, or character studies of emotions or actions. These could also be for storytelling, or mapmaking for an RP, or really… whatever! I’m pretty flexible- I just really enjoy drawing within the world of Matope and helping people visualize their kin’s lives and stories.

These illustrations can have anywhere from 1-4 kin in them- perhaps more if some are in the background and not so detailed. Two is ideal, especially if you’re planning an ascension (4 RP points versus 2!), but solo pieces are just as nice to draw. I’m also happy to draw familiars! 


In-canon, this little shop is Strange Creature’s doing. However, because kin are ungulates without hands, what your kin is actually trading for is a dyed piece of tegu shed with glyphs on it.  These can be used for decoration, for sending simple messages, for tying to your familiar to make sure it doesn’t get lost, or whatever you might want to use a lightweight piece of material for. The numerous lizards crawling over the area will shake you down for treats, and they are hoarding the pebbles for reasons.

How To Get An Art
« Reply #1 on: August 15, 2020, 03:07:50 PM »

In order to get An Art, I need to know who I’m drawing and what they’re doing. I don’t have a form or anything.  Just post the uncerts of any kin you want drawn and describe what they’re doing. If there’s more than one kin, tell me how they know each other- do they like each other? Hate each other? You also should describe what you want and/or link to the scene in the RP you want illustrated. Be as detailed or vague as you like, but be aware if you just say something like “draw my kin sad,” that means I might draw your kin sad… in the swamp, or in a dream, or getting his ass handed to him by a boar… just communicate, you know? Tell me what you want and I’ll try my very best to make it happen for you!


Pricing is really flexible and simple. I’m suggesting 75-100 pebbles as suggested compensation right now, but if you don’t have a lot of pebbles, you can trade something in RP, or draw something for me, or pay me like 5 pebbles or something. Suggested prices are subject to change as the pebble market stabilizes! My turnaround time is pretty quick.



These are some examples of the kind of thing I draw! Right now these are all from or inspired by the Shattered Obelisk meta.

Sometimes there’s things I particularly want to draw- little scenes that might make sense to put your kin in. Sometimes I’ll be running special things for metaplot events or festivals. If you’re not sure what you’d like me to draw, maybe something listed here will appeal to you?



Right now, I have some YCH slots open! YCH (Your Character Here) images have a suggested price of 25 pebbles. YCH images have suggested species in as a placeholder, but if you’ve got another species you’d like to slot in, that’s fine! YCH images are not templates, but I may reuse backgrounds.

If you’d like to see your kin in one of these scenarios, let me know!

Finished illustrations can be found here!

The most recent bunch will be in this spotlight area here, and older things will get moved to the links section. I typically post on imgbox because imgur tries too hard to be a social network and it's annoying, and I upload things to DA eventually. I can also send you files via discord... they're really not very big so we probably don't have to do email or anything. If you don't want me to post to DA, let me know!

Orders are... mostly first come, first serve. It depends on how inspiration strikes and what I feel up to drawing. But by and large, I'll get your order done within the first couple of days after you order, unless I have something going on (and in which case, I'll let you know).

I don't really have slots. If the sign says open, I'm open.

Kinu and I wanted to immortalize the beautiful friendship of Clever Boy and Clever Girl, if you'd be willing. <3

She's a raptor girl so I can imagine her hunting him down and pulling out some tail feathers xD

Omg. Hahahaha. He'd just whip around like 'EXCUSE ME MISS!', horrified expression plastered on his face, to see her staring at him with a mouth full of tail feathers.

So we were thinking a pic of her taking a chomp of those feathers and him being all :reallyshocked: and then a solo face pic of Clever Girl grinning around a mouth full of feathers! It just sounded really cute and your art is so expressive! @Scaramouche Fandango
