Ten colors, ten sketches on ten themes... chosen by you! We've got ten days to do it! Come play with me with colors!
I'd love to get more of my doodles into other people's hands. And I'd love to have a conversation with the people who want them about the colors and themes of those doodles. See, when I get into the art store and look at the colors, I start salivating. It's like colors are truffles and I want to eat them all. My excitement about the visual sensual delight of looking at the possible palettes is something I'd love, love, love to share...!
So here's my idea. I'm going to photograph the colors I've got. And then together we're going to choose one, and then I'm going to doodle a little sketch on that theme. And then I send it home to you...!
For the base price, I'll doodle you whatever comes to mind with a color I've already got. For more, you get to choose which color I use and what theme I should draw on. (General, please! "A drow" is fine, but "my particular drow character, who looks like this, and here are reference sketches" is outside the "doodle" scope!)
A Note on Postage
For the price of your pledge, you will get your piece sent in a normal envelope. If you'd like it to go fancily, overseas, or with insurance, tell me and I'll get you a quote!
If We Go Over the Goal...
If I get more than ten requests within the funding period, I will do them all! And if we go over the goal, I'll do them on one of my Friday night livestreams so we can take the interactivity up a notch.
So here are the colors you can choose from:
- Blues and Purples: Clematis, Pale Blue, Grayish Lavender, Eggplant, Agate, Lapis Lazuli, Dull Lavender, Mauve Shadow
- Greens: Nile Green, Cool Shadow, Ocean Mist, Willow, Verdigris, Apple Green, Bush
- Pale Peaches/Pinks: Milky White, Lipstick Natural, Baby Blossoms, Buttercup Yellow, Egg Shell, Ash Rose, Orientale, Bisque
- Reds and Oranges: Yellowish Skin Pink, Prawn, Pale Sepia, Carmine, Cardinal, Garnet, Peony
- Browns and Grays: Dark Bark, Aubergine, Argyle Purple, Africano, Champagne, Fig, Lionet Gold, Cool Gray 00, Cool Gray 05, Black
Do you have a hankering for some other color? Here's a master list of all the available colors! Feed your eyes, and pick one if it looks appealing to you!
Canadian backers should expect to pay an extra $2 US. For backers in the UK, Europe and Australia, $15 US will cover shipping. If you live elsewhere, I'll get you a more specific quote.
Absolutely! You're welcome to come by even if you didn't back the project. The more the merrier!
Things like this (where each phrase is a theme): bird, animal, abstract, female elf, mage, cup of coffee, silly, werewolf, sacred, manta ray, etc. You can get as specific as "silly werewolf" or "cardinal in winter" but not much more than that. You can also say "abstract in purples and blues" or "something for my kitchen" and I'll render something I think appropriate!
