Commission - Starter Roses by Vaporeon249 Commission - Starter Roses by Vaporeon249
(If you like this picture you can COMMISSION ME at this [link] .)

I kind of wonder how I get roped into the things I get roped into. I have one designer making me do more realistic monsters, and another has me doing the exact opposite with anime catgirls. The funny part... it took me way less time to do the ugly Cthulhu creatures than it did three benign looking catgirls. I have to admit the two designers must have a lot of confidence in my skills, since neither ugly monsters or anime girls are at all prevalant in my work. And I personally think I kick butt at it when given the chance.

Left to right: Magical Rose, Crimson Rose, and Iron Rose. Basically for this game it's an interactive story, and depending on how you interact and develop your characters, determines your evolution chain. It's kind of like Digimon in a way, except with little, scantily clad kitties. Designs were a bit restrictive, as well as the color schemes. I went overboard on Iron Rose since I usually find defense types unappealing, so hopefully she looks rewarding for that player type. Took me forever to do this. Partially because I'm really skittish when it comes to pure anime, and then just slow with Illustrator (and I crammed in asinine levels of detail that you likely can't see). I like how they turned out, they look authentic, but it's another piece to add to my gallery of, "Stuff that does not look like VLK drew it."

(I so can't wait to hear the voice actress. I'm sure she can really give an 'authentic' experience.)

Illustrator CS5.

You know i am really glad they actually have real paws with sharp claws, brings them a step closer to monsters than those usual hentai things.

Something a little cat-like to take the edge off.

More like made to do it rather than actually willingly setting about and trying. JRPG means I had to do the japanese anime style. It wasn't an option.

Is it just me or you used a very different style for this picture? I really dig the shading here, though.

Mentioned in the description rather thouroughly that this was not my standard style.

The all have the same tail. It's basically reflected over from the red one and manipulated around a bit.

I like how you did it. Claws on the hands and feet, fur and clothes to cover up all the right areas, long skinny tails and large ears. Honestly, if I had to choose just on looks alone, I'd try to clone the creature from the start and then train each to where they evolve into each Rose.

Well, you'd just be stuck with repeat playthroughs and careful planning, I guess. Aren't most catgirls like the way I drew these?

Dimensional42 Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2011
I would guess. These just appeared in a group recently and I liked what I saw. Skimming over your gallery a bit shows over pictures that are very well made.

Couple of my pictures are there, mostly the anthro ones. I try to keep it different otherwise.

^.^ I like the shading. I think it's pretty sweet.

Eh, Cat ears... Cat tails... I always had mixed feelings about those on a character, but you make it work!

I have no idea why it was cats. Must be cats, for whatever reason. Oh well, can't control that part.

Dood! What's with the Felicia Knockoff?

Aside from that, which is more the commissioner's problem, I like the pice, it's very well done and it's good to see you step outt your comfort zone once in a while.

Complaint about lack of design control. Literally all the references were existing game/anime characters. Felicia was one of them.
Little different than a commissioner. It's one of the projects I am assigned to.
