I wanted to make a Terminator drawing influenced by Akira Toriyama, although I noticed that my take on it is not as round so it doesn’t have that same fun aesthetic. But perhaps that was the best outcome since my take would look to much like Major Metallitron (Metarikku Gunsō) who is obviously inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator.
I really like Yusuke’s jacket outfit that he first wore in episode 5. Personally I prefer his uncombed hair, but I have an idea for a future drawing. When I scanned it, I noticed that I made his head too big so I made it smaller with Photoshop. On this piece I wanted to practice some foreshortening with Yusuke’s finger point.
I finally got the chance to see Demon Slayer about a month, a month and a half ago. On episode 10 Nezuko had a battle with a Kemari. It very quickly started to resemble Captain Tsubasa. There was even a scene where she was charging up a kick and it looked just like when Kojiro shoots his Tiger Shot. Drawn using a maru pen. At first I was going to have Kojiro in his Soccer uniform, but I felt his training outfit would look more flashy. Specially if it was open and flapping with the movement.
I attempted doing an ink drawing of Sayu with her short hair back in 2018 for inktober but wasn’t satisfied with the end result, so I decided to draw her again. This time I used a combination of both ink and digital hatching and some small manipulations to the diamonds below the table which were done in the wrong perspective.
Really love the way short hair compliments Sayumi.
I drew another ink drawing. I was looking through Sergey Orlov aka punksy‘s artwork and wanted to do another 80s style drawing. I want to paint it with a simple color scheme. But that will be later. I used both the g pen and the maru pen. I really love the thin lines I get from maru pens. The only reason I hadn’t used them for so long was because the ink didn’t flow out of the pen. But after thinning out the ink with water that solved the problem and man am I glad for that. One thing I wanted to try out was this set of Chinese watercolors, but to my surprise it didn’t contain black. After mixing blue, green and yellow I got an okay looking grey but instead I decided to water down the black ink. I quite like the way it worked out and will experiment with it more next time.
Welp today was Valentines day so since I want to participate in the seasons holidays a bit more so that the years don’t feel so monotonous I of course made a drawing for today. I’ve been wanting to do a purely pen drawing this time. I also wanted to try out siiteiebahiro ‘s style for a while now. So I used this chance to give it a try. What’s funny is that as I was trying to find the link to Hiro’s twitter account I stumbled upon one of his videos where he showcases his inking process. Looking at it, it is obvious why they both look so different when it comes to the way the hair was inked. Having said that I’m glad I didn’t see it till after I was done so that I could compare both styles.
I used Airi Suzuki as a reference for this piece using a photo from her photobook “Aoiro”. I just changed some things to make her in the manga style and having her hold a gift.
I accidently used a watercolor paper and didn’t notice it till I had uploaded the video… No wonder I couldn’t really blend as much as I thought I could. On top of that, I somehow made Kaname look… younger? There’s something about the face that just looks off. Maybe lowering the mouth and nose down? Hmmmm…
I chose this pose since it seems like something Kaname probably would do (without even being embarrased to do so).
It’s funny, I was at the store and was surprised to find the complete collection of Vampire Knight including Guilty (right now I’m trying to buy all my favorite series so of course I picked it up). Just when I got out of the store and looked at my phone I happened to get this request for Kaname. Quite serendipitous.

I’ll have a longer version on my other channel here:
A series of videos where I help people draw. I make these videos on requests. So if you need help drawing someone or something, leave a message.
