There was a recent cute photo uploaded by yu_ra_ne on instagram that reminded me of Sakaki (from Azumanga Daioh) trying to pet cats. Which of course led me to make this painting of Sakaki petting Maya, the Iriomote Mountain Cat.
This is the photo of yu_ra_ne that I’m talking about, which I used for reference:
I guess it was a bit tougher than I thought after all…
This time I had the idea of Osaka from Azumanga Daioh. Since it’s Halloween I kept remembering the scene where she had a knife. It started with that then I eventually evolved to what I ended up with. But because I didn’t really have anything in mind I just made up things as I went along. Eventually it turned out kind of like a slasher movie scene. I wonder how I could have made the background look better though? (・_・ヾ
So, yeah that perverted lolicon teacher was a thing. I remember laughing a lot at it when I was a kid but now as an adult… that situation truly is very spooky scary skeletons. Poor Kaorin. (●ฅ́дฅ̀●)
In any case, Happy Halloween!
While I was drawing Kimura sensei and I put him behind the bush I noticed too late that the position of his hands were in a rather … dangerous position so I had to change that in any possible way which luckily didn’t look too bad. ╭( ･ㅂ･)و ̑̑ ˂ᵒ͜͡ᵏᵎ⁾✩
It was at this point that I was seriously in a spooky situation so I had to think fast and fix it.
Doesn’t look good now at all but I was hoping that the future me at that point would be able to fix it.
Welp, that’s it for now. This Inktober experience was quite enjoyable but it was also … stressful? I had to keep this rhythm going which was comforting but there were times where I didn’t have enough time to work on any drawings so I had to rush it and try to beat down the clock and also upload it here, Pixiv and Twitter. Yet despite everything I managed to do it.
I’ll try to be a bit more consistent with my updates from now on but using color is something that still takes me a while to do. I hope to be able to do so at least once a week.
