The Crimson Squid

Ask me stuff!   Got some fan art? Submit it here!   Art blog of David Baron, artist and registered nurse from Tampa, Florida, USA.

A little gift for my good buddy Synduo. I hope this cheers you up a bit!
He’s been going through some undeserved crap as of recently, and he’s feeling really down right now. It’s a terrible shame, because he’s such an amazing artist, with a lot of amazing projects he’s trying to work on, which I’m extremely excited to know more about!
Syn, if you’re reading this, I wanna let you know that you’re an incredibly cool person and it saddens me to know that life’s giving you so much drama. I love you and your work to bits, and I want to see you go above and beyond your dreams and be awesome!
And guys, do me a favor: go send this awesome dude some love, and let him know that there are people who truly care about him. Anon or not, I think he’d definitely appreciate any kind words and compliments you guys can give him.
Hope you have a good rest of the day, buddy!

Sloppy warm-up sketches. Thinking about how I can squash and stretch Casey’s head to add more dynamism and appeal to her poses and expressions. I’m not afraid to go “off-model” with her, as I plan for her to be the most expressive character in the comic.

Sorry for poor quality, my tablet’s broken and I don’t have a scanner. :(
Anyway I just came across your art yesterday and I think Shelby is one of the cutest characters I’ve seen in a long time, so I just felt like doodling her. Felt like showing you. :)
Enjoy! And keep up the awesome work! Would love to see more of her. :D

I drew Domino for nuclearmime, in exchange for some sweet 3DS eShop credit. Hope you like it, dude!

Simplifying Marine a bit as well.

She’s been the toughest character for me to pinpoint a stable body shape. However, by using some simple shapes I think I’ve finally got it!

Simplifying some of my character designs, particularly Casey. I like how this rounder face looks!

I’m off work next week, and my first check came in a bit… smaller than I wanted (on account of only working a week due to getting sick). So! I’ve decided to open up commissions and work on them all throughout next week.

I’ll have 10 slots open initially, but I’ll add 5 more if they get filled. You’re free to order multiple commissions under one slot, if desired. Commissions will close on Friday July 4. So if you want one, send me an ask or email me as soon as possible before that date!

I’m very flexible with what I can draw, so if you feel like something you want may be questionable, we can discuss it. Also, I’m perfectly fine with keeping commissioned artwork private if desired!

WHAT I WILL DEFINITELY NOT DRAW: nsfw/porn, explicit violence, gore, and anything else I may find unsettling/uncomfortable. Again, if you’re not sure whether I’ll be ok with something, we can freely discuss it.

Other than that, I’m perfectly fine drawing things like trademark characters, Homestuck, pinups, robots, furries, etc.!

My Paypal is davidzth13@yahoo.com (it’s in the commission sheet as well!)

4 slots left to grab, folks! If you’ve been wanting a commish from me for some time, now’s the chance!

Here’s where I’m keeping track of slots.

Also! To those who have a slot but haven’t sent their payment yet: be aware that I’ll be working on my already-paid commissions first, out of courtesy for those who reserved a slot and paid early. As such, the longer you take to send a payment, the longer it’ll take to finish your commission(s)! Thank you for reading!
