Your art looks very beautiful. You did a great job applying your various skills to this piece of work. The text effects you chose fully...

I do not know if this is the right forum, but I have been reading lots of stories about Kaspersky including Kaspersky's assumed involvement in the NSA data breach.


For those of you keeping up with the news about Kaspersky, my question is, what harm could be done to us ordinary people who use Kaspersky software? If Kaspersky is really working with the Russian government, what danger could the company's software pose to us (what could the Russian government do to our personal computers)? (I already know about government usage and its risks)

If there is no apparent danger, then it is just a geopolitical fray and I will continue on with my Kaspersky subscription.
Hello! I hope I am in the right forum, but if not, please feel free to redirect it to the appropriate place.

I just wanted to ask if it is possible to generate artwork like this using instructions I pass to the computer via a programming language such as C++, Android Java, VB.NET, etc. without commissioning an artist here on deviantART or will it be too complicated and/or intricate? If anyone can help me here, that would be greatly appreciated.

I am sorry if I posted in the wrong forum. I read through the rules but I was unsure of where it fit in to, so I had to guess.
Introduction

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello everyone on deviantART! I am currently looking for someone to digitally draw and color four of
my cute original characters for a computer program that I am preparing to make that will be released
as freeware.

They should be in a cute, kid-friendly cartoony art style complete with full SOFT shading, tones,
textures, highlights, and other digital effects similar to ANY of the images below:

beyondthemarquee.com/wp-conten…

images2.static-bluray.com/movi…



These will be four full-body characters on one image with a transparent background. They should also
be positioned at a 3/4 angle view similar to what is shown here at
jonathanfleming.files.wordpres… .

In addition to being allowed to use the final artwork for my own personal use and enjoyment, I
would like to be allowed to use the final artwork for use in my freeware software program. If you can
give me this permission, that would be greatly appreciated.


My asking price for this commission is $80 for the entire commission and I will choose someone and
pay him or her on Friday of next week.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Character Descriptions

And now, without further ado, here are the descriptions of my four characters below:

Jumpsie

Jumpsie is a cute little round-headed kitten on the autism spectrum who attends preschool. She is
similar to the cat character here at
img1.etsystatic.com/101/1/5933… but she is not a blue cat, she
is an orange tabby kitten similar to the cat here at
img14.deviantart.net/3de8/i/20… . Her round head,
face and skin should also be all shiny and glossy like porcelain. She also has extremely shiny dark
brown hair and is in a cute style similar to what is shown on the girl character here at
shop.dkoutlet.com/media/catalo…
9780545150422_L.jpg .

Jumpsie wears an extremely bulky, thick, huge, and shiny winter jacket that has extremely bulky,
thick, huge, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy padding in the inside but is flat on the outside. Her
coat should be similar to the coat shown here at i.stpost.com/product~p~4542D_0…
and her coat should be black.

Her jacket should be really big and bulky and should really fatten her up as she wears an extremely
bulky, thick, huge, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy coat that has extremely bulky, thick, huge, and

that is making her really bulky and huge should be one similar to what the boy is wearing here at

jacket. Her hood should also have extremely bulky and thick tan fur lining similar to the hood of the
coat shown here at www.jasminedress.net/pic/a23/n…

character is wearing here at img1.etsystatic.com/074/0/5232…
complete with an extremely shiny dark green hatband, extremely shiny white and gold flowers embedded
all over her hatband, and an extremely shiny dark pink vizor.

Jumpsie has pretty light green eyes and wears extremely bulky, thick, huge, and shiny black mittens
on her hands. She also wears hot pink earmuffs which should be situated below her hat and hood. She
also wears extremely shiny clear goggles similar to the ones shown here at

should be situated below her hat, hood, and earmuffs.

Poses, Expressions and Other Miscellaneous Details

For poses, here is what I would like for my four characters:

Jumpsie - standing with one arm scratching her puffy winter jacket-fattened belly and the other arm
down

Breleigh - standing with one arm rubbing her puffy winter jacket-fattened belly and the other arm
down

Lexi - she should be walking towards the viewer with one arm holding an extremely shiny gold umbrella
in one of her hands and the other hand holding a hot pink fan. It should be similar to the lady shown
here at
lh5.ggpht.com/Vlwv5NRc8jr4UKbM… .

Jayden - she should be walking towards the viewer with one arm holding an extremely shiny dark pink
umbrella in one of her hands and the other hand holding a green fan. It should be similar to the lady
shown here at
lh5.ggpht.com/Vlwv5NRc8jr4UKbM… .

I would like all of my characters to have cute smiles with lip lines at both ends like most cartoon
characters have without ANY rosy cheeks. However, their faces should have a tinge of extremely dark
red as if they are badly sunburned. I would also like for them all to be smiling with their mouths
open.

I would also like everything shaded, lighted, and toned as if it were an extremely bright, hot and
sunny summer morning and the extremely bright sunlight is shining right on my characters as they are
facing toward the extremely bright sun. Therefore, when you do their hats, hatbands, flowers, bows,
and vizors, I would like for them all to be as if they were made out of extremely shiny plastic or
metal and that the extremely bright sunlight is shining on all of their hats, hatbands, flowers,
bows, and vizors.

Also, about their clothing, they wear all of their extremely bulky, thick, huge, and shiny puffy
coats buttoned up (no zippers!) all the way to their necks with all of the neckpieces fastened.
Therefore, only their sixth or second puffy coats should be showing and should be completely covering
up everything else they wear underneath (including their vests, scarves, and the security blankets
wrapped around their necks). Their coats should be one color each and are not multicolored.

Because all of their puffy coats, snowpants, vests, and hoods all have extremely bulky, thick, huge,
and shiny marshmallow-style puffy padding in the liner, I would like all of their extremely bulky,
thick, huge, and shiny marshmallow-style puffy coats, snowpants, vests and hoods to be extremely
bulky, thick, huge, shiny and marshmallowy exactly like the girl character's puffy coats here at
orig14.deviantart.net/5859/f/2… (especially
her black one). I would like for them all to look like enormous snowballs. I would like you to really
fatten them up! :)

Also, since they all wear uniforms and other clothing underneath all of their puffy coats, I would
like all of their shoulders broadened more.

I would like the final work delivered to my e-mail address which I will be revealing to whomever I
choose for this commission.

If anyone is interested, please do not hesitate to note or message me and I will get back to you as
soon as I can.

80 / 9,000
Hello! This is Nathan Koepke and I am getting ready for a programming project. I am making this kids game and I would like for this program to have some cute characters I have made up in my mind which I have written vivid descriptions of. Therefore, I need some character artwork depicting these characters done for me in an art style similar to the box art or any type of art of most children's software products and DVDs such as JumpStart, Clifford, etc. with the shading and highlights and all. I have realized that since this type of art style is very laborious, having someone do art for me in this style would require some sort of compensation.

The points level is set at 9,000 to allow for me to compensate people enough points for the time and effort necessary to do my characters in the style that I expect for the project. Therefore, if anyone can donate me whatever points they can toward this project, that would be greatly appreciated.

You must be logged in to donate.

Thank you, it was an honor to do it! :D The drawings you commission from me give me plenty of practice as well with drawing new types of hats and positions!

I cannot be too sure, perhaps the childhood innocence in it?

You are welcome. And that is good, I am glad my commissions gave you some experience in doing many types of cartooning.

And yes, the childhood innocence I had when I was young was conveyed in all pictures that you did for me that contain me when I was a little kid. :)

I hope you are having a wonderful day and may God bless you!
