This is a bunch of resources I've been using in my current study of Pixel Art (Video Game Sprites) and Animation.……… (Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Reference)



So it's been awhile since I've done a journal, almost 3 months if I remember correctly. I've been finding these journals hard to write lately and it's weird because there's a lot of stuff happening in my life right now. I guess I'm more of speaker than a writer (or typer in this case). So pretty much all I've been doing lately is ALOT and I mean ALOT of freakin drawing. Besides just my own personal work, I've been getting involved in 3 different games and an animation club project. That's not even including school work (which is awesome I might add) and me attempting to get a job (I need more money , I can't say I'm a starving artist or college student at this point but If I don't get my act together I sure will be one). Despite all this work, I've never felt so good and or focused in my life! I feel I have a clearer mind when I have a whole lot of ideas crammed in there (if that even makes a lick of sense!). So instead of just posting my all of my junk at once (which I might do eventually) here's just a very small piece of stuff I've been doing:
 GD Citizens Attire Design by DrakeArts574 Confirmed by DrakeArts574 Damien by DrakeArts574 Navi by DrakeArts574 Steven by DrakeArtsExo Suit Character by DrakeArtsFraktus Wip by DrakeArts

Again, barely even a fraction of the stuff I've been doing. Most of it's in my other computer that I need to transfer over and what not (and i'm mostly lazy when it comes to posting stuff).


So at my school I'm currently taken a class called ANIMATION PRINCIPLES. After just one day in the class, I realized something about myself, something new that I hope to accomplish before I graduate. Along with getting better with Concept Art and 3d modelling I want to get better at animating! but not just regular animation stuff , more specifically, Video game sprites/models from games like street fighter, skullgirls, megaman, metal slug, etc. I love the S%$# out of those games and I dream to get on the level of animation skills/art skills as the artists who helped make those games. So starting this month, I'll be starting my studies on things like that. I'm also thinking about creating a small section somewhere on my page that links to helpful resources when it comes to both pixel art, sprite making, and frame animation. So far I've only picked up these sources from a friend:… (Game Sprites tutorial) (Street Fighter Third Strike references)… (Pixel Art/ Sprite Making)

If you guys have a resource that helped you out in stuff similar to this, whether it be a book, website, or app, please feel free to tell me on this journal or in a note. I'd greatly appreciate it!

Lights-practice by DrakeArts LP practice (lol It's bad but it's a start)

So recently I've been thinking about doing a new type of commission style that involves something similar to the Point Commission thing I did a couple months back:

DrawMYCharacter Group 1 by DrakeArts

I was thinking for like $5 I'll draw someone's character or design one for scratch in high detail in a set up like this:
of course it's going to be in more detail, these were done pretty quickly and from the top of my head. I don't know, I'll put more thought into it when I plan on doing it, right now it's just a concept. but what do you guys think?

My name is Chris Humphries and I'm a character designer. If you have a character that you need a reference for or design drawn, then I'm your guy. I'm really flexible when it comes to style and I can draw just about anything, just describe the character to me and I'll keep at it until I get it right :D

I do character designs and refs for $30

and Character Turntable for $40
Kiwi Guard Turntable by DrakeArts

If you want to commission me just send me a note, comment here, or email me:

hey, man! it's been a real long while since I dropped by your page (a couple of years actually, your art got so awesome since then wow! you've improved a lot, that's so awesome! ^^)

I happened to stumble across an old trade of ours. I was wondering what it would take to commission you or trade with you again? 
DrakeArts Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Hey dude, watsup :D it sure has been awhile and yes things have changed a lot, I'm not really open for Art Trades but if you want a commission it's only $35 (ignore the $45 on my price list, I'll be removing that soon enough). If you want something to be drawn feel free to tell me, I'm your guy!
HalfandHalf-Kaneki Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2015  Student General Artist
mm new with me, how about you? I totally understand about the trades lmao, and I'll definitely have to save up for a commission! the second I have enough, you're the first person I'm going to ovo
