Zoro Santoryu

The painted version of my Zoro drawing which can be seen here:

I was just playing around with colors in the background till I arrived with the current background. I think it fits the current Wano arc. I’m really coming to love the Sargent Brush in Corel Painter.

Yamato

This is the painted version of the line art I drew before. It can be seen here:

I quite like her multicolored hair. I wasn’t too sure about the background so I made a simple swirling cloud patterns.

Sanji God of Cookery

Today I decided to paint Sanji who I drew for day 22 of Inktober this year.
Here it is: https://darkcloudxero.com/2020/10/22/inktober-2020-22-chef-sanji-god-of-cookery/

Seriously, if you guys haven’t seen the movie the God of Cookery do give it a try. Somehow I feel Sanji would definitely fit into that world as a martial arts chef. It’s a shame that we only had about two decades of good Hong Kong movies that gave us a glimpse of what anime could look like in real life (although Stephen Chow continued to do so well into the 2000s).

Once again I decided to go for an anime painting style, the challenge this time being that I would not look at references for the coloring style. For the next planned painting I also wish to imitate a 90s anime look but I haven’t quite settled on which style yet. I might just end up doing more than one, we’ll see.

Hasta la proxima,

Luffy Onward

Just to change it up a bit let’s draw a guy this time, and let’s try a new angle (as advised by my younger brother). For this drawing I decided try out a new technique I saw a couple of years ago. This I believe is what they call foreshortening. It worked amazingly well so that I could draw out Luffy’s arm and finger pointing at us. When I finished drawing I then shaded the drawing by using ink and brush. Now Luffy is ready to move forward and become the king of the pirates.
