Portfolios / [Portfolio] Emily Lynn at your service!
« on: January 27, 2013, 08:03:24 pm »

As the title says, I'm Emily Lynn, a freelance pixel artist. I have four years of experience working for avatar communities and I am now wanting to expand my work experiences.


Below are works done for

Here's my resume and another portfolio that show cases a variety of other art I've done besides pixel art.

Please contact me at for rates and further discussion.

Hope to hear from you!


Started this a couple months ago. It's based off of an outfit I made on poupeegirl.

I also want to add that you should be drawing with bigger paper. That sketchbook is tiny for the the type of practicing you want to do, Dennis. For the stuff I posted earlier, they were done in a 9"x12" sketchbook (multiple sketches on each pag). If you don't already have one, I would recommend getting one ;D
(Mine is a strathmore, 400 series btw)

That sketchbook that you have is great for when you have an idea that you want to sketch down before you forget it or something catches your eyes when walking around town and you want to draw it. For the work that you want to do at the moment, working on a letter sized (8.5"x11") or bigger paper would be best.

Also, for gesture resources, you can try out these:
Figure & Gesture Drawing

I like to use posemaniacs more, but the second one also has a class room setting option which is nice (starting from quick gestures, to longer drawings).

That's supposed to be catwoman.
This is old, but a favorite of mine:

Nice edits. You could draw the eye again? sometimes it takes more than one sketch to get something to look like how you want it.

Here's some stuff I've done recently:

(I know that face is out of place)

muscle study using

Below are two muscle study sketches that I did a year or so ago for a life drawing class:

The lines on the eyelashes are a little thick. I would practice on a scrap sheet of paper with pencil strokes. Just make a bunch of strokes until you can get a thin, wispy(?), eyelash look. It'll help train your hand on knowing how the strokes for eyelashes are supposed to feel. (same with eyebrows too)
Your lashes are a little to even as well, especially the longer ones.

Also, on the upper eyelid, that dark spot is a little to dark and cuts off as a corner instead of blending in with the rest of the skin like in the photo.
She does have eyeshadow on, so the part on the lower lid is probably some blending of the eyeshadow.

Painting I did to mess around with the default brushes in PSCS6 at school.

Initials for a school assignment.

Sketch I drew up last night.

Huzba: I really like the environment concepts.

Hello  :)
I'm Wishie, others may know me as wish04. I was introduced to pixel art 9 years ago by looking at and making pixel dolls, so I do have a bit of a dolling background to me. I do hope to try out new things with my pixels, maybe more background stuff. We'll see how that goes.

Nice to meet you all! ;D

No matter which side you're on, whether you're the client or the artist, there is that small chance of getting taken advantage of. There's a certain level of trust that both sides place with each other. One expects work and the other expects payments. It's also why we got to try to protect ourselves by taking the necessary precautions if possible.

Um, what happens if the client doesn't pay the artist for their work? This is why artists ask for some payment up front. It's a way to protect themselves from getting screwed over as well. I like the half-half idea that someone stated earlier, sounds pretty fair to me, but it also depends on the client and artist discuss amongst themselves.

With graphic design work, I read somewhere online that some people take payments in little increments. They do a sketch, get some payment; do the actual work, get some/the main payment; any revisions or further editing, get more payments.

It's seems to be all about communication, which isn't there with this josh person. If I were someone that didn't get any work from him after 30days of sending the payments, I would report him, even if it's just on the site that you found him on like linkdn or other portfolio based sites that help client and contractors find/get work. Start demanding your money back because he didn't send any form of work yet. Even if he's in a tough situation, he should have told you guys ahead of time that getting WIPs may be a a little slow or not promised to do any work for you at all.

Are there any contracts involved with this person? even if you're just an independent programmer or artist, there should be contracts to protect yourself. This might something that should be considered. I'm just starting to learn more about contracts myself, it's something that I didn't know about when it came to freelancing until a few months ago :blind:
