Captain Damio. by Moesie Captain Damio. by Moesie
A chibi for my friend Damio Roncartia over on gaia.
This is officially my most expensive chibi. Meaning it sold for the most.
I only asked for a mil and he gave me 1.58mil.
So yeah.
Every time I do a chibi, I up the price by 100k. The last chibi was 900k. Because the 580k was a tip, I'm still only selling the next one for 1.1mil.

I think it's ridiculous that people pay for these things, let alone pay so much for then. I up the price each time because I don't particularly like doing them...but something about the guy and his character? Whenever I do chibis for him they ALWAYS are groundbreaking in how I make them. This time I rendered the entire thing in black and white and then added color after, and it cut my production time into a 4th of what it used to be.
And looks better.
So yay!

It has its errors but I still like it for now.
(Also, the character has four eyes.)

I'm glad! Honestly I still like it too, I still use it as a general reference for what my chibis will look like when people order them.

The price will probably keep going up if people are willing to pay for it,
Hell I bet you get get up to 5 mil for those on Gaia. The price may sound ridiculous but you can always haggle with people, price higher so when people go lower you can still get a price your happy with :3

Very very adorable by the way, I really love his hands for some reason, and the clothing looks AMAZING <3

Chibi hands are so fun to make. XD teeny widdle sausages with joints. :'3 They're like baby hands.
And thanks! :'3


Yeah, I just...don't feel right doing it. XD chibis should not be that expensive under any circumstances, but people still pay it so I can get away with it, as opposed to people just taking the hint of me not liking chibis. XD I only make them so expensive because I don't like making them. Chibis are the ONLY category of artwork of mine that has a progressive 100k policy. XD

Wow I'm seeing improvement since I saw your work last! Very nice!:)

So let me get this straight though did you overlay over black and white? Or did you just flat out paint over it? :?

Moesie Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2011
Thanks! :'3
Well, a mix of both.
I work with opacities, which means what's under the sketch is transparent.
I put base colors under the sketch, then I used overlays to make the black sketch the colors I wanted it to be in order to match the colors underneath, and then I painted over top to make the colors all coherent. It sounds complicated but as long as you keep your sketch at low opacities, and draw with like, 10% opacity or less until the end of the sketch, you should be fine.

I understand what you're saying, I've do something similar most of the time. But curious, how long did this take? I mean if it cuts so much time.

Well, my last chibi, [link] , took like 40-60 hours, and frankly doesn't look as good. Damio's here took me like, 8-10.
