Internet is full of shapes and references to use along your explanation and already existing references. The more the merrier. This includes art and photos, screenshots, stock images, ect., please add as many links as you can possibly find for things you want and examples of which you do not want. If the wanted images are not online yet but you have them, you can upload them to your DeviantART Stash account and give link to that file instead. There's no reason for you to not have any sort of visual references even if it's self-painted with MS Paint. Of course a lot of refs doesn't mean they'll be directly copied, they're only to give hints of the outcome and a visual aid for me as an artist. Visual aid is still better than an explanation of many paragraphs, and they are the best when combined. This list contains a lot of necessary questions needed, but not all have everything, so fill in what your character should have, and leave out or specify what are to be left ou

My upper grade school's art teacher said "Better an inflammation in your hand and a good piece of art than no pain and a piece of shit."

Transformers Commissions!I'm OPEN for commissions.
(if you want something else than TFs, you can send a note and ask about it but expect me to not be that much interested of doing it.)
:bulletpurple: Here are examples of the prices. They vary depending on simplicity, complexity, if they're a sketch, lineart (digital or traditional), colored and how it's colored, how many characters in which amounts of visibility (from portraits to full body), design from references (redesigns) or design from scratch with aiding references, ect.
15€ Simple portraits with sketchy lines and a few colors or simple colors. Last one full sketch with sketchy colors.
30€ 1. detailed sketch, 2. sketch with simple colors, 3. simple lineart and coloring with portraits, 4. full-body traditional sketch with sketchy digital coloring, 5. sketc

I do art for myself. I take my time doing it since I don't have a hurry to show it to others.

Welcome to my current fandom, but one day I'll stop drawing them and move to another fandom.

I can be: nice. helpful. awkward. annoying. an asshole. silent. weird. helpful. sarcastic. happy. ect. but it all depends on you.

I mainly draw fan art since I find it more challenging to keep the characters in character both by looks and personality. That of course depends how stupid of an idea I've gotten out of nowhere that I just simply want out of my head.

I don't understand the Llama business.

If you want me to reply to your comment, leave something I can actually reply to.

Don't watch me back for the sake of gratitude.

If I comment your works, don't feel obliged to return the favor. :)


If you want some interesting reading (read: opinions) about TF fandom and how heteronormativity, boosted with misogyny/misandry pollutes it, check this:… Feel free to share your opinion.
When it comes to bringing out your character, was it in story, or art, be comprehensible.

Think through more than twice what your character is doing or saying. Does it fit how you've made them? Does it bring out the message you want? If it doesn't, what could you do different? Should you keep something, or throw it away? Does it make sense in which order you've done everything? Should you change some parts around or decide on different point of view? Rewrite, sketch and change it and do it differently. That will open the possibilities that you might have missed something the first time, or found out something isn't necessary. Just don't delete the old ones. You need them to make the comparison.

Most important, when you share your character design/story/comic, is that not only you understand it, but those who you're sharing it with as well. Is your font clear? Did you do the text by hand? Is the grammar properly executed? Or does your character have a speech pattern that you'd like to express via text? Does the speech bubble enhance the message? Doesn't matter how you do it as long as it's understandable.

Here's an example of "What goes down..." when it was just the initial sketch:
Neutralzone 04 Sketch Wip S by pika
Second version:
Neutralzone 04 Sketch Karsittu by pika
And how it ended up as the final piece:
TF Neutralzone -  What goes down... (part 1/4) by pika TF Neutralzone - What goes down... (part 2/4) by pika TF Neutralzone - What goes down... (part 3/4) by pika TF Neutralzone - What goes down... (part 4/4) by pika


I have scribbled up some adoptables, total of 11 colored portraits actually (kept 2 sorry!), and now I'm just wondering... I'm not very good at this business, yet hehe, so what would be the best way to put them up? Crowding 9 pictures into one or perhaps groups of 3? :confused:

PS. My ultimate arting issue was solved by SAI and stabilizer! I'd never thought I'd use it at almost max settings but here I am, in need of it, bad. ;u;
Sup! I know I've been quiet here, and the reason is quite simple; my hormones are going crazy due to me carrying my third child. ^^

Today was the day of first ultrasound and I've been stressing over it a lot. But worry not, the babby is healthy and everything's as it should. And I'm getting chubbier. Heck, I can forget wearing trousers already. =P

Luckily the heartburns, that started exactly on 11th January :lol:, have subsided a lot but I still have them and my focus towards art has come back little by little. Mainly scribbly scribbles because I just get tired very fast so I'm trying to do 'art' in that time frame as much as I can. There's nothing refined or colored. Just ideas and stories that I've had bubbling in my head plus some gift art scribbles.

That means that whenever I start feeling I have more energy, I'll continue with more proper art like commissions.

Doesn't help though that thanks to spring time my two other lil darlings are bringing in all sorts of common cold varieties from daycare, and even writing this I have sore throat, I'm sniffling and feeling like crap, and both kids are staying home this week (again). :XD:;;; G'luck to me trying to study Swedish on top of the chaos~

PS. The Nautica cosplay project will continue as well when I feel better.
I'm back from Finland and... I'll just take it easy cleaning my message center. It was a fun trip and 10 days seems so short. I wasn't able to meet all friends or family I wanted, but perhaps next time. :aww:
I'll be flying to Finland tomorrow (28th Dec) and I'll be back next year! Har har. Wish me good flight weather because currently it's winter storms going on and I'm scared of flying... Uguu. ;x;/
Transformers fandom question; Why, among the fan characters and their world, is heteronormativity and misogyny in such a strong role?

Hello :)

I am an avid fan of your work and your tutorial of how you draw transformers really helped me out a lot in doing some sketches of mine. (also got one of your adopts ^^)

But I was wondering if you had some tips on how to draw a female insecticon? The best example I could find was from Arachnid

Sorry if I'm asking too much ^^" 
pika Featured By Owner May 3, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Hi hi! :D

I'm glad the tutorial helped, and thanks! :happybounce:

Female Insecticon? In other words you want a more feminine one than the hulkbusters in TFP and something similar/or different than Airachnid? A bot can call themselves a 'she' despite looks so if you ask my opinion about how to do an Insecticon, I'd just swap gender noun if I wanted a bulky one. If you want one from scratch, better decide alt-mode first and then work on the bot-form from there to see what alt-mode bits are going to be more visible than others. Like if you pick a grasshopper as an alt, the legs and long torso will be more prominent than any other shape in the design with alt-mode parts. The actual bot form is up to you how you decide to do it and what you want.

Here's a bunch of questions, if you haven't seen this already, to try and think about when you're thinking about your bot:
