I’ve had this idea of making a piece with Goku and Yusuke both wearing sunglasses. So I thought I should give that a try. Of course doing it for inktober would have it’s challenges since I would have to navigate through any mistakes I make along the way.
This is how I ended it. I forgot to add Goku’s tail…

And here is the process for those who are interested:
From what I’ve learned, I can overcome mistakes by making light marks for my ideas and darker thicker lines for what the actual drawing will be.
And it was at this point that I was getting a bit scared. I had so many unnecessary lines and Goku’s right arm was just wrong. I almost wanted to just start a new one. But decided against it and see if I could save it. Also I accidentally hit my pen and it fell on the right corner of the paper. So far that is three mistakes in a row.
So despite looking quite dirty, I decided to fix all the mistakes.
Once again I was careless and rested my hand on Yusuke’s uniform, luckily this time it wasn’t too bad.
With the outline done, it is time to ink the darker areas and see if it can fix my mistakes.
And just to finish it, I added some hatching on certain areas to make a shading effect which not only made it look better but it also helped mask even more mistakes.
That should be all for now.
Hasta la proxima,
