I was caught off guard when my brother told me the news of Kentaro Miura. I remember people joking that this could happen before the story ended, but I guess that’s just how life is. Ever fleeting and unpredictable. His art, story telling and characters were truly inspiring to me. They were a level that I hope to reach someday. Thank your for all these years, allowing us to see and learn from your work. Although you may be physically gone, your legacy will forever be remembered.
Just a quick painting that I was sketching till it turned into this. At some point it looked like a set of armor so I decided to go with it. The base was started with the Real Tapered Wet Flat Brush and at some point I went over it with the Tapered Oils brush.
Today’s theme is “one eyed”. It’s been a while since I did a Berserk piece so I decided to draw Guts again. This time I made up a pose used references after to know how to draw the armor. This one took a long time to draw trying to figure out the way the body would fold and flex, and then the most time consuming was trying to figure out how the armor would look from certain angles. It wasn’t hard, it just took me a couple of tries to try out different angles and shapes. What sucks is that I ripped and folded the paper when I erased the pencil lines. It’s a shame.
This is my second drawing of Erza Scarlet, (you can see my first one here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IojQKf-ulWk ) this was a request I was asked for a couple of months ago but seemed to have not taken not of it. So I apologize for not doing it sooner. I wanted to try something a bit different so I decided to finish it off with a pen using only hatching and cross hatching. There is definitely a lot of room for improvement but I think I should be able to fix it. Overall though I don’t think it looks too bad.
