I’ve had this drawing waiting to be inked or colored for quite a while now. I also want to make new artwork too, but it would be a shame to finish past artwork. The original plan for this line art was to paint it but I’ve decided to also ink it and try out different styles and methods. For the inking process I used the pen tool, screen tone and spray paint for the highlights.
I think I want to use these same ink and screen tone but using a color scheme.
It’s weird, drawing is way slower digitally for me. For some reason this drawing took a long time to make and then clean up… Perhaps for line art I should just draw traditionally from now on and digitize afterword.
This is a follow-up to the drawing I made of Goku also parodying Aliens.
It can be seen here:
I feel like redoing it at some point.
As for this drawing, I was thinking of following the reference photo but in the end thought that would be boring. So I changed it to make Goku prepared to fight. I originally had him wearing his Kame uniform, but decided to use Newt’s outfit instead. As I was looking through the movie I noticed that the gun in the poster was probably a prototype prop before they settled on the actual guns or something. That’s when I had to come to the realization that I would have to change that as well. Luckily I managed to find good reference models online. I was thinking of adding the dual gun setup but for now I settled with only the M240 Incinerator Unit. I don’t know why, but that took a while. I seriously need to learn what the method to draw straight lines is digitally because doing it by hand has me redoing lines over and over. Next time I should also trace over the completed line art because going in and cleaning it takes way too long…
Line art originally drawn for Inktober 2022 day 12. The original drawing wasn’t showing the movement and power of Jackie and Wei’s fight so I made some slight changes. Can you guys tell what they were?
I’ll be trying out different painting styles with this year’s batch of line art. The background is of a photo I took of a catholic building back in the day and used the screen tone filter. Just trying something new (and didn’t feel like painting a background this time).
This is a study of Airi Suzuki. I want to do more artwork of her to celebrate her 20th anniversary. For this drawing I want to practice different coloring styles. For the line art, I went for thin lines which I liked how it looked when doing Inktober this year. The inking in the hair is too dark, it doesn’t give the image of it being a lighter brown. Perhaps I should just make lighter hatching. Perhaps at a later date.
Day 31, it’s over! I need a break… Inktober 2022 has truly been something. I felt a power up this year. I’m pretty sure I can do 3-4 drawings a day. Inking and painting of course not included. I wanted to make sure I inked today’s drawing, since it’s the last one. I’m not sure which drawing took longer to ink, Meimi’s or Yura’s.
I chose Yura because my brother finally gave Inuyasha a chance. When I saw Yura, a bunch of memories began flooding back. I used to have such a crush on her, sad she got killed right at the start.
I actually had another drawing ready of Angerme sketched out and ready to be inked. I had the bright idea to make three drawings today, but I guess I was a little burned out and wasn’t working fast enough. Yura was a last minute idea that I had to plan out, sketch and ink all in the same day.
Another year, another Inktobber fully completed. Till next year Inktober.
Day 30. Today is Meimi Tamura’s birthday! Well it was yesterday if we go by Japan time. To commemorate the occasion I drew Meimi. I have really been into her music lately. I really hope she continues to produce more music. In some of her Instagram posts she has been talking about fairies, thus today’s theme. I was short on time again, but I felt that it wouldn’t be good to upload the drawing as only the line art. So I pushed it rather close to midnight today in order to add line details and inking. There is a lot of detail so I hope that Meimi and the fairy are visible and stand out.
Day 29. We’re getting really close to the end of this year’s Inktober. Didn’t have much time today to ink it since I was still figuring out the outfits. I was thinking of having Misaka and Misaki in Halloween costumes. So at first I was thinking mosnters, but in the end I decided upon Red Ridinghood and Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
Day 28. Marin’s bunny girl costume and Gojo’s Bunny costume were a fun match. Gojo getting one step closer to accepting himself and getting over his past trauma was a nice step towards his development.
As for this drawing, in some of my references of Momochi I found some that had her with the same bunny costume that I thought would be fun to draw. That bunny costume has been a staple of Hello Project. I remember laughing every time the bunny appeared during the rollercoaster ad segments.
