akinsman’s guide to: Hispanic naming customs

So often when RPing I see Hispanic characters of all kinds that are perfectly well crafted and interesting but fall down when it comes to the name. Hispanic naming customs are very different to English-speaking and other Western naming customs and whilst, as with those of other ethnicities that have different naming customs, there may be a variety of reasons that they use or adopt a name that does conform to a Western profile, it is important to understand the nature of names within their culture.

As with all names, you must check what the country of their birth/habitation requires names to be legally. Some countries do not police naming at all and some police them very heavily. It would be wise to check that you are giving your character a name that is legal.

Ah thanks so much for stopping by! It was nice having you<3 

As far as references and things I’ve got this answer here that talks about it :

Reference Answer

To answer the first question, I typically just start off with a pencil sketch like this :

So fairly loose, since I know I’ll be painting it, and then I just paint over everything. I stick to one layer since it makes it a lot easier for me to correct things and have everything flow more naturally (for me), so I just enlarge the pencil work and paint on the same layer.

I usually start off defining the face with the shadows, since that helps me determine the pallet of the whole picture and lighting and stuff (I find I keep going for the same type of lighting which I’m trying to switch up now haha). Then I try to work on the surrounding image and work on the face last, especially since I’m very picky and before I know it I’ve spent an entire day painting it and still not being satisfied.

I do actually use my own hands as reference a lot, which is why everyone ends up with really big long bony hands, but that’s something I’m trying to switch up as well. It’s proving difficult though since my hands are so readily available to use as reference if I need it.

Though I am incredibly flattered (over the moon really) that you want to use my work as study, I would say tread very very lightly and take anything you learn from it with a pinch of salt the size of Africa. Studying other artists work I find can help understand colour and brush work sometimes, but you will also “learn” their mistakes. This ends up giving you an actual limit to your progression because you can only learn as far as the artist you are studying is capable of. I highly recommend studying from life, or studying theories if you want to get the most out of your work; this also gives you more power over how you want to represent the subjects of your art. Other than that though, I don’t mind! I’d love to see anything you come up with really, just send it my way!

And thank you again so much for coming by the stream. It’s especially awesome because it’s like I’m talking to my own dog, who is actually called D. <3
