XERO Drawing OPERATION – Misaka Mikoto ( Railgun )

I’m really surprised that this drawing took me so long to draw, but I guess it is expected since I decided to add some background this time around. The time accumulated for this drawing was … 19 hours and 10 minutes. In a way I find that astonishing, but believable since I was making up techniques as I drew. I’m surprised I didn’t get stuck and end up ruining the drawing. One thing I have learned though is that adding various colors to a certain object or objects will make it more believable and realistic so I made sure to go in with that type of mentality.

I’m sure many fans of the To Aru Majutsu no Index and To Aru Kagaku no Railgun know that a new series is being aired at this moment, it seems to be focusing on Misaka and her involvement with her sisters/clones. And I have to say, it is absolutely amazing. Both the story and the animation. I seriously wish more anime’s put in that much effort at least into the animation. In any case, this drawing is inspired by the fight between Misaka and Mugino Shizuri ( no. 4 as the strongest level 5, known as the “Meltdowner”). Their confrontation ended last week and it was awesome, plus it also left it open for some more “encounters of the level 5 kind” (yeah… I know, stupid joke).

Throughout the drawing I really did not know what I wanted to do yet. I just had a goal to draw her in a pose I haven’t seen before. So I just made things up as I went along. As I was drawing I decided to have her injured but still willing to fight, and I also liked the idea of having her fight outside (meaning I would have to draw a background as well). One thing I did want to include was her shorts. Usually I don’t like upskirts in anime/manga but because she always has shorts I find her to be a really awesome character that doesn’t feel the need to flash in order to be popular. I seriously feel that more female characters need to be like that. Plus her shorts are pretty much her trademark (well that and electricity, gekota, etc.). I did feel kind of bad making her bleed, but I feel that makes her look more vulnerable and human like. As well as making the situation look dire. If anything I feel the drawing only needs a bit of rubbing/blending in order to make it smoother (mostly in the sky).
What do you guys think?

How to Draw Challenge – Misaka Mikoto (COLORED)

And so here is the second installment of my Biribiri drawing. I tried to take a bit more time on the coloring so that it would look better than it would normally do so. And truthfully although I believed I could take more time on it, it does not look half bad at all. In fact the colors are definitely blending much better. I’ll have to go ahead and work on it a bit more to make it even better but over all the whole idea is there. Until next time.

Hope you enjoy it,

How to Draw Challenge – Misaka Mikoto

Biribiri… I wonder if any of my viewers are To Aru Majutsu no Index (or Kagaku no Railgun) fans. I remember watching this last year and immensely enjoyed it. and to no surprise I became a big fan of Misaka Mikoto. What can I say I have become captivated by the charms of the tsundere girls. What I like about her is that although she acts really mature and at times rather tough she is in fact innocent and incredibly cute. And of course let’s not forget that she has the power to destroy her enemies with a railgun just by using a coin, how cool is that? I seriously can’t wait until they finally make a third season.

So this is the first part of the drawing (just like my last drawing of Amu Hinamori), I’ll have the coloring video up next time.

Hope you enjoy it,
