This is a painting of Momochi that I have been working on whenever I had some free time during the weekend. This time I used a couple of oil brushes from my collection. I will probably be making another version where I make it a bit more anime like. But first I wanted to go for a more realistic feel. The reference I used was a screenshot from “Off Momochi in Okinawa”. I think this will give me more options in terms of what I can study and paint as well as look closer at poses with movement. I’ve been wanting to also do some animations so this will really help.
Momochi looks freakin adorable as usual.
I have a couple of momochi ink drawings that I haven’t painted yet, I’ll have to think what coloring style I will use for them.
The painted version of the inked drawing I made a year ago.
I had two options that I could use to color, the line art or the inked version. In this case, I went for the inked version. Because of this, I decided to go for a more flat style. I decided to have a red background, so the colors were based off of that. While I was painting, I was reminded of a problem that this drawing had. Her right eye (which is on our left). It was misaligned and a bit too low, which I feel was exemplified more when I painted Lin Lin.
The Nagatoro anime has finally released. They did a good job animating it. The coloring style is also pretty good, although there are some instances that they want to add more details to Nagatoro’s hair but it looks a bit too digital? Although it’s 2D, it somehow looks cg. The hair effects to make it more detailed need some work or needs to be stylized differently, or maybe using different colors might look better? Other than that though, I’m loving the voices they chose, Nagatoro’s fits perfectly. Wonder what the opening is going to be like? I wonder if making those transition segments are going to be common place? What I mean by this, sometimes when they make a transition some cute Nagatoro cats and Nagatoro appear. The other anime that I have seen doing this was in Demon Slayer. If you guys know what I’m talking about, let me know if this is becoming a popular trend in other animes.
This was painted with Corel Painter 2020 using the Sargent Brush and oily brush. It took me 2 hours and 22 seconds.
I’m amazed at just how much effort Yusuke Murata puts into both the characters created by ONE and the ones coming out (so far) in Murata’s version. One of the characters that really captured my eye is Ring Ring. It’s a shame she only came out for a couple of chapters. I was hoping that she would come out a bit more but the chances of that happening are slim. Maybe she will come back with Suiryu after training to become heroes. One can hope. Another shame is that we didn’t get to see her techniques, she got defeated too quickly… While drawing her I noticed that her design is simple and yet very iconic and cute. The addition of the bells and her hairstyle is a really good touch.
Looking at the One punch man wiki, it seems that Lin Lin was supposed to be Suiryus sister, so I guess there were more plans for her…
