Friends Forever by cleris4ever
Friends Forever
I really wanted to draw something Zelda related, so I drew Link and Saria. I don't know if I ship them romantically yet because I'm not too far into Ocarina of Time, and probably won't get any farther for a while since my 3DS is being dumb, but I love their friendship so much ^_^.

I Will Protect You
I haven't drawn these two in such a long time, but after listening to the Shadow Hearts soundtrack, I finally decided to draw them again.

I actually had a few ideas but unfortunately I couldn't execute them at my current skill level. Maybe some other time.
Since I saw a few of these, I figured why not.

I joined dA back in 2009. Unfortunately I don't have any actual deviations saved up from back then, as I did a gallery clean-up a few years back. But I do have some of my first year stuff in sketchdumps and demotivationals.

2009 Cleris Sketch Dump by cleris4everCosplay Motivational by cleris4ever

NOTE: From this point forward I will only be using pictures of my OTP of all OTPs to show my work. I think this will suffice since I draw them way too much.

In 2010, I began to work on anatomy more. As you can see in my 2009 work, my anatomy sucked.

I also changed my eye style a bit since I thought the way I was drawing them looked lifeless, and at some point my anatomy did slightly improve. I also began adding shadow, which looking back on looked weird with the techniques I was using at the time.

It was also during 2010 that I began to add color to skin.
Protecting Him by cleris4everSpringtime Cleris by cleris4everHolding On To Hope by cleris4everFinding His Light by cleris4ever

Early 2011 was pretty much the same as the later part of 2010. Coloring in the skin, and shading like a maniac.

Upon my second anniversary of joining dA, I added a new technique: pen outlines.

And some shines to the hair.
"I'm Here" by cleris4everAngel's Kiss by cleris4everLove's Embrace by cleris4everKissy Chibis by cleris4everStill Here by cleris4ever

Also during 2011, I switched from a desktop computer to a laptop, so once that happened, the coloring of my pictures changed a little.

The Woman He'll Never Forget by cleris4everOur Love Will Keep Us Warm by cleris4everUndivided by cleris4ever

Early 2012 was pretty similar to the later part of 2011.
Oh So Happy Together by cleris4everOTP Chibis: Cloud and Aeris by cleris4everI Smile When You Smile by cleris4ever

During the summer of 2012, however, I changed my eye style yet again. It was also during this time that I tried to take facial structure into account.

Bodyguard by cleris4ever20,000 Kiriban by cleris4everOpposites Attract by cleris4everTheatrhythm Cleris by cleris4ever

Nothing really changed in 2013, with the exception of adding a more simplistic style to my repertoire (which can be seen in the birthday pictures). The year was pretty inactive to be honest. Real life sort of took over.

During this year, I have already made some changes to my techniques. The first is that I've added some backgrounds to some of my more simplistic pictures, although that wasn't really the case with other pictures where people are drawn normal size.
All Aboard the S.S. Cleris by cleris4everHappy Birthday Aeris: Cake Time! by cleris4everOver the Rainbow by cleris4ever

The second change is that I've been drawing outlines in colored pencil on the hair, skin, clothes, eyes, you name it. Third change so far is that I've also added outlines outside of the characters so they pop a little more. Fourth of all, I changed the eye style yet again on standard and chibi size.

You Are My Light by cleris4everYour Anxious Heart by cleris4everOTP Shaming by cleris4everTo the Sky by cleris4ever

I know that I have a bad habit of nitpicking at my art, but at the same time, I realize how much I've improved since I first started here in 2009. In the five years I've been on dA, I see a dramatic improvement in my art. I mean I've gone from this:

to this:
To the Sky by cleris4ever

and if you don't think that's that great, then check this out.

I'm pretty sure that I would have not gotten to the level that I'm at now if it hadn't been for me joining dA, with all of the support and criticism given to me during my time here, I feel like I've really grown as an artist, so thank you everyone :hug:.

Also, I'm almost to 30,000 pageviews (which is my next kiriban, so keep watch for that).

Thankies :blowkiss:,

Hello I'm cleris4ever

I take art trades and occasionally I'll offer to draw somebody something as a gift.

Don't hesitate to ask for a pic, I really enjoy drawing stuff for people and making others happy. I do have a few rules though.

1.) I will not draw anything bashing a character.
2.) No porn! No nudity!
3.) Nothing too bloody.
4.) I will draw Yaoi and Yuri, but no MPreg!
5.) I won't draw anything offensive in regards to race, sexual orientation, or religion.

I can't thank you all enough for giving me critiques on my art and writing, I wouldn't have become the artist and writer I am today without all your help. So Thankies :blowkiss:

Art Trades are Open :)
