Guts Frozen Quest

The original idea was to have Guts in a frozen scenery, but as I was painting the background I decided to add in Casca and Puck. This scene would be taking place right after their encounter with Griffith and Zodd, I was wondering if adding more layers would slow down my tablet but it had no problems what so ever. I guess it was just the canvas size that was giving me problems…

Kuga Trigger On

Karin Miyamoto had posted some photos of her cosplaying and buying goods from World Trigger. About two weeks ago I finally decided to give it a shot and have already caught up (with the manga). I was actually surprised, the world building, battle system and character interactions are great. Check it out if you get a chance. Kuga is freakin cool, his adaptive fight style always gives me a surprise.

Guts Frozen Quest Background WIP

Currently working on a painting that I had thought up last year. It’s still a bit rough at the moment, but the main idea has pretty much been painted out using my Surface Pro 5.

So I had bought a used Surface Pro so that I could paint on the go but rarely used it because it couldn’t keep up with the settings I use on my desktop. The canvas size was too large I found out. When I halved the size to around 2500 to 3500 the Surface is actually quite capable. I can’t believe that was all I need to do so that I could use it…

Playful Chizuru Kagura V2

For today’s art piece I decided to give a past painting another try. Today I repainted Chizuru Kagura which I originally did on December 2021.

It can be seen here:

… Yeah, this drawing definitely needed a makeover. I removed the line art and instead softened the lines I painted. The eyes I resized and also softened Chizuru’s eyelashes.

Rei Ayanami Sweater line art

Line art originally done for Inktober 2022 day 7.

Can be seen here:

I didn’t like how I originally drew it, so before I inked/painted it I wanted to fix a couple of things. Mainly the face. It’s amazing how a couple of changes could make such a big differences.

Fubuki gutst inked

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.

Bulma and Goku Aliens lineart

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…

Shizuku Kuroe

Line art originally done for inktober 2022 day 5.

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).

Airi Suzuki Nap

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.
