Arina Makihara request

I’ll probably start taking requests every once in a while. This one was by the user mpman in Pixiv.

I’ve never played this game, but I did know a bit about it thanks to RebelTaxi aka Pan Pizza on Youtube who made a video about it. Or at least I think he did, but I can’t find the actual video.

While I was searching for references I noticed that this character was pretty popular, even by people who don’t even know where she’s from.

Momochi visor

This time I opted to cover up my line art with colors that correspond to each section of the painting. I like it. This will be something I should just do from now on. I specially liked how I could blend better because of it. This was a great advantage when I was working with Momochi’s eyes and lips.

I’ve been quite busy lately with other things so I haven’t been drawing or painting as much. Hopefully I can get in the flow again soon. On another note, I noticed that Pixiv restarted my weekly upload combo. I guess it resets after the new year. Had I known that I would have taken note of it. But I guess if I do an uninterrupted combo this year I should be able to beat last years personal record.

Momochi visor line art Re-do

There are so many drawings that I have left unfinished. This is one of them. The original line art had messy and thick lines that I had to fix. So I just went ahead and redid the whole line art using Clip Studio. There are a few additions and modifications. Next comes the painting process.

Speaking of painting, I feel like there are so many painting that I can redo now. But maybe I will wait it out till I have more skills…

Hasta la proxima,

Rin Shima Freezing

Originally drawn for Inktober 2022 day 23.

I had to modify some of the lineart but for the most part it all worked out. I know the anime uses blue hair, but I quite like the more purple hue she has in the manga illustrations. the outfit and colors I got from a figure of Rin on her Yamaha Vino. It really helped out a lot.

Freezing Background WIP

This week has been something… Somehow I was able to make progress on this painting though. Here is the background for now. We have been having waves of strong winter storms lately where I live, and it seems like more are coming on the way. Winter this year has been living up to it’s name (and the end of the last).

I’ll upload the finished painting on Monday if all goes well.

Hasta la proxima,
