I just bought my own domain so that it would be a lot easier to get here and be remembered. From now on you can just type in darkcloudxero.com and be directed straight here.
Sorry I havent been active lately, I was really busy working on this project since my dateline was this week that I tried to work on it as much as possible until I finally finished it. This is probably the biggest work I have done so far. I drew 18 mobile suits in all, but because I took so much space I had to take a couple of them out. I based it mostly on how out of proportion they were, how out of place and also detail. Although, I felt bad because of all the work I put on them and mostly because some of them hold a place in my heart. Anyway the pictures are below, let me know what you think.
It’s been raining for more then one day without stopping where I live. I’ve never seen it happen before, usually it is very dry and hot, so whenever it does rain I feel really happy. It is on days like these that I get inspired to draw. Feeling calm without worrying about much is very enjoyable. Hopefully I’ll get a lot of work done today.
Below is a third try at using the Copic Markers (which I did a few days ago). I’m still very shaky but I learned a lot of cool techniques thanks to this drawing. I felt bad experimenting with this drawing since it’s something I drew when I was a lot younger but if one doesnt take risks than nothing will happen. Tell me what you guys think.
If there is one thing I need to worry about is how dark some lines are, other wise they will ruin the finishing touch (I really shouldnt have drawn in the rain with a pen). Hopefully next time it will come out better. Once I get a feel for what my technique will be like I’ll start looking at other peoples work to learn even more (I specially like the work that Touhou fans do). Until then.
About four weeks ago when I finally got my Copic Markers I decided to do a quick sketch to try them out. Below.
I really like the way they meld with each other. I’m clearly still shaky but I will definitely master it. I think this drawing was loosely based on Misaka Mikoto from To Aru Majuutsu no Idex which I was watching at the time.
Here is the full update, I was actually supposed to put this up yesterday but for some reason it only placed one picture. I placed it in different light to show what the effects would be. What I like about it is that as you change the location of the light it moves and reflects off like the sun which is a cool effect. The next part is adding the Gundams, I’ll keep updating this until it’s over.
