It’s a bit sad that Pink Cres. will be disbanding but I’m glad that Miyabi has decided to continue singing. I wonder what new direction her solo career will take. I hope the best for Kobayashi Hikaru in her pursuits in the fashion industry and Nihei Yuuka’s plans to become a stage actress.
I decided to make a painting based on my favorite song from Pink Cres. “Tokyo Confusion”. I wasn’t too sure about the style I should go with so I just started painting until I arrived at this final painting.
In any case, thank you Pink Cres. for these past years of happiness. Here’s looking to the future.
After not making digital art for about two weeks I decided to paint once again but came to a rather sad surprise, my XP Pen is having some issues working with my art programs such as Corel, Krita and Clip Studio. The pen cursor gets trapped into a small central rectangle of the screen. Putting my pen on any part of the actual physical screen has the cursor stay in this invisible barrier on the center of the display (hopefully this makes sense). For whatever reason this problem isn’t happening in Photoshop though. I figured this was a perfect time to buy some brushes from an artist that I like, Toko Suzuki:
I quite like the texture that Toko’s pieces have so I decided to buy the brush pack listed on the bio. So far I have only used the “Sampled brush 4 15”, but I quite like that rough texture and translucence that happens when using pressure variation. I’ll be practicing a bit more with them and then seeing some of the video tutorials to get a better sense of them.
For today’s drawing, I have Momochi in her “Ai no Dangan” outfit riding a motorcycle. There are a lot of options and possibilities when it comes to adding a background. Maybe I should try out different styles when I end up painting it.
I’m a couple of days late, but I wanted to draw a piece commemorating the anniversary of ℃-ute, a group that I hold very dearly along with Berryz Koubou. I’m always delighted in knowing that they performed in Mexico.
