family picture sketch "map" of OCs by Jadis


ok so  this was hard to put a category on but ...oh well. 

posting this for the forum game "this reminds me of..." because it's the only thing I have on this comp of what the picture reminds me of. 

a few years back I commissioned a young friend on DA to draw me a picture of the whole extended family of the protagonist of my Nano-novel based story Destiny of dreams, which is a science fiction story and some of the people indicated here are aliens, which is why I chose that category. 

this is a sketch I made of where they should all stand based on both their relationship and how tall they are. 

explanation of the project here 

this is the final picture she made

..which in retrospect, I wasn't happy with because they all have an unhappy expression. 

the line art

had more positive expressions, I think what happened was by the time she was coloring it she was hating the project and that shows in the coloring. I think also they were not characters she understood or related to and that made it hard for her to give them sincere expression. 

after the time I commissioned her but before she did the coloring she went to art school, and  instead of canceling the project doubled the price, which made it more than I could well afford, but it was still not half what she at that point would normally charge for such a thing, so it sort of wasn't fair to either of us. A bad deal all around since she didn't have fun with it and and I wasn't that happy with it in the end. 

actually I'm tempted to recolor it myself but It seems disrespectful to change someone else's artwork. On the other hand I paid for it, and not displaying it because their expressions make me feel bad is also disrespectful. 

overall it was a good experience for me not because of the final product but because of all the sketches and character development I did in trying to figure out what I wanted, and in the anticipation, even though the final product didn't live up to the anticipation. I very much enjoyed the line art and the other sketch she did of a few of the characters
