A question that begs being asked is why I have put so much time and effort into creating a whole web site devoted to reference works for my characters. It's quite simple, really. Even though I am learning to draw, I'm primarily a writer. I can describe something in vivid detail but actually capturing that in an image still eludes me. For that reason, I tend to commission other artists to draw my characters for me.
It had started getting to be a pain in the backside, because my references were scattered throughout my FA gallery and on several outdated links. And I just figure that if I don't give an artist all the info (s)he needs to do the job, then I can hardly gripe if it's not up to my expectations. While I was working on my writer's web site (www.codydenton.com) I got the idea to create this site as well.
Doing this allows me to provide lots of information, but since it's broken down into categorized pages, it doesn't swamp someone. They can just get what they actually need. For example, if you've never drawn cowboys before, then you may not realize that the boots and hat are absolutely critical to an authentic look. They're also, from what my artist friends tell me, a pain to draw accurately. So there's a whole page devoted to tutorials on drawing boots and hats. If you don't need that, great! But the nice thing about a web site is that I can provide as much info as I want, and so long as it's well organized, you can go right to just what you need.
I hope you'll take the time to browse through this site and get a good feel for my characters before starting to draw them. And if you would, could you please take the time to submit your feedback? I'd love to know if this site meets your needs!
Thanks for your time, and thanks for your interest in working with me!
