Quinn (For Orenzia) by Jasmineteax Quinn (For Orenzia) by Jasmineteax
Argh, I didn't realise that this would already be used so quickly... and as a profile image. Since it's already being used, I might as well post it here now.

Okay - so just to explain things first, I'm designing and illustrating all the character images for Orenzia @ Wattpad's (www.wattpad.com/user/Orenzia) upcoming book, The Cursed Child. Note it's just the characters, so any backgrounds that are present are NOT done by me. The one she's using on her profile atm is the unsigned version, and if you ask her yourself she'll be able to confirm that it was me who drew it... unless if she uses a dick move and decides to steal the artwork, but I know her rather well and I doubt that'll happen unless if she does it as a joke - which by the way is NOT funny and will be treated seriously.

The fact that it's been used as a profile image before I posted it here actually pisses me off big time, and before I made this edit I said I was pissed off at how there wasn't any credit given but then I realised that most of the time people don't credit for avatar images anyway.
Unfortunately I'm not being paid, and as far as I know she shouldn't be making profit in terms of money out of this either - which is good, because that means no exploitation :). If she does start making profit out of this, I'm going to demand payment... and things won't go very well between us.

One of the things that I have gotten out of this project though...
The next time someone asks me to draw "as realistic as possible", I'm definitely shooting myself in the face. Why? because it's boring as hell.
wow hi this is the first time I've actually gotten angry on something of my own instead of someone else's post

Oh, before I forget - this was actually done somewhere in December 2016, but since the book's probably going to be published this year might as well sign it as 2017 =p

EDIT: Lol, I dunno how I got angry over something like that... but eh, not that it matters too much now lol.
Also, this wasn't really meant to be a legit thing - I actually just drew Quinn's face in my then usual style for fun, and showed it to Orenzia. She liked it and decided that it'd be included in the book. So there you go - that's the reason it looks so messy an so unrealistic, yet got accepted.

I like that cold expression on his face. Also, his hair. Nicely done! :)

Thanks! :D
(the hair is actually just simplified Leonardo DiCaprio though which is pretty funny. Cool thing is that I was told that it was meant to be like that xD)

Awesome! wonderfully drawn and a bit cute even with that expression!
Realistic is boring, but somewhat has it's own charm at the end!
I hope this project of yours gets a happy life :)

Thanks! Totally agree with you that realism does have a certain charm to it that other styles can barely reproduce.
So far the project's going well, but the only thing dragging it down is just how boring realism is xD

You'll overcome this boring feeling, I'm sure of it :)
