So here we have another drawing for another contest that popped up. I want to say thanks to LittleBabyDollxx for giving me the info otherwise i wouldn’t even have known about it.
The theme revolved around the usage of three characters each from one of these series; One Piece (definitely one of my all time favorites), Fairy Tail (Hiro Mashima has not disappointed me yet, I became a fan from his last work Rave Master), and Naruto.
I decided to make it revolve as a battle, but because I only really know about Luffy and Natsu (I did not really get into Naruto when I read a couple of volumes, maybe I’ll give it another chance sometime in the future) I put Naruto as kind of filler. The back story goes something like this; Luffy and Natsu want to find out who is strongest and prove themselves to their respective comrades and the world, while Naruto fought some strong foe (I’ll let you guys use your knowledge and imagination to come up with someone) and won, but still got battle scarred. As he lay on the beach he was to witness an amazing battle by two of the worlds strongest warriors.
Personally I think the drawing looks much better without a background. Reason being that I felt I rushed the beach a bit too much and thus sacrificed a lot of the details. I don’t feel it looks too bad, but it does not meld well with the three figures. I would have to add some color to the lighting that touch Luffy, Natsu and Naruto so that they looked natural. But seeing as I only had one day to work on it, and if I added such details I would lose time and maybe not get the chance to turn something in. Although incomplete this piece should be sufficient (or so I hope).
Hope you enjoy it,

For this weeks requests we have Mephisto and Amaimon from Blue Exorcist which is a really good series.
I wanted to give a simpler kind of drawing and yet make it a cross between realistic and manga styled. The result is not something extraordinary but it doesn’t look too bad either. I wonder if when I’ll be able to master this style? I’m sure I could accomplish it if I added more time to the drawing but I want to bring it out easily and swiftly.
Hope you enjoy it,
I would like to apologize since I put this post a day late, it seems I forgot to do it yesterday.

After drawing Black Rock Shooter it should not come as a surprise that Dead Master would come next. I feel I could not put as much detail as I would have liked because all my black color pencils are now just about used (their small size make it hard for me draw or color well). I’ll have no choice but to go and buy some more, hopefully very soon.
Now on to Dead Master, I definitely prefer the character design for her in the OVA. I wonder why they decided to put the glasses in the anime series? Although girls with glasses look surprisingly cute, I thought they looked out of place here.
Hope you enjoy it,

I have actually given hints about this on some of my earlier posts, and the time has finally arrived for me to unveil a new area I will be dealing with on this space…Piñatas. I wanted to find a way to meld my love for anime and games into some of my culture, and what better way to do that then to make a traditional symbol of every new year that a person goes through. Using skills I learned back when I was only a few years old and some of the new skill I developed through drawing. The result is actually much better then I could have imagined.
One of the things I noticed was that most of the Piñatas I found here in the states have lost alot of the original quality they once used to have. I actually was searching to see if anyone out there had anything I had envisioned and to my surprise there were none. One thing I did notice was that most of the best if not the best Piñatas were found in Mexico (my motherland). Almost all of them had a great likeness to what they were supposed to be. While here in the states most had only two types of Piñatas. The first kind were oddly shaped and gave a hard time to the viewer who was trying to figure out what character the Piñata was supposed to be. The second kind were just plain Piñatas that just had a picture of the character on it, and that was it. Many of them were poorly made, some already breaking apart before even being used. It seems that the two original methods have been discarded for a more simple carton base instead of the sturdy “engrudo” and newspapers or it’s other counterpart made with clay (not as common anymore since it can me a bit dangerous).
I of course have decided to use the “engrudo” and newspaper method which can be very manageable and flexible when making creations. the results are a very strong (you would be surprised at how hard these can be made) and sturdy body, but also very light which makes it ideal for Piñatas.
The story about how Piñatas came to be can be read here: http://www.pinatadesign.com/story.html
or here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi%C3%B1ata
Please note that many of the stories have different variations
So if you ever wanted a certain type of piñata but never seemed to find it anywhere else here is the place to do so. Browse through the already made piñatas or customize your own. The designs are made to look as good as an actual collectors figure, having most of the details taken cared of. I have invested all of my abilities so that they are deemed as art pieces that can be collected, but with the characteristics of an actual Piñata ready to get busted to realease the goods of your choosing.
I have added some more of my artwork to the “Newest Creations Page” located under the “Browse Gallery” and “Drawings and Paintings” tab. So I hope you guys go and check that out.
It is finally here, my interpretation of Black Rock Shooter. This character/series has had quite a bit of a following, so much so that it’s amazing. The story of how it all began is just as great or even greater than that of the Touhou Project. It all started with the individual work of one man that all flourished into something so magnificent and amazing. To have just one drawing inspire a song and later a whole array of adaptations including anime, games and figures is just amazing. I can clearly understand why it happened, though. After all when I saw drawings and videos of Black Rock Shooter my curiosity was always awakened. I was just facinated by the design of both the character and the background.
When I saw the OVA I was blown away, it was really owning up to all it’s hype. Now I know that there are alot of people who dissagree and believe the OVA or the series for that matter isn’t that special, all I can say about that is, to each their own. Next stop is watching the series, but I want to leave it alone until a couple of episodes have already gone up. I like to watch it marathon style.
My interpretation is made up of action figures, original and fan made renditions of Black Rock Shooter. I really liked the blue hue on her hair ( which is apparent in the figures) so I decided to add that in. I was kind of having a bit of hard time deciding whether or not to incorporate the blue flame, but I seriously wanted to show her eyes which is why I ended up omitting it. Back grounds are something I still have not been incorporating yet (and the main reason is the time it would take), but I really want to do so, even if just a little like I did with this drawing in the very bottom.
Hope you enjoy it,

Before I begin, I would like to apologize for taking a week off. I was working on a very important project and it took me alot more than I expected. But now that I am back I will be uploading videos as much as I can. starting of course with the requests.
To start things off I will be drawing Black Star. Now I was only given the name Black Star so hopefully I got the right character. When searching the internet for references I got a lot of diversity of images, seeing as this black star had the highest amount of appearence (for the anime catergory anyway). I went ahead and drew this guy. I had heard of Soul Eater before but have not read nor seen the anime until just this week. I gotta say the artwork is interesting. I really liked the halloween motif that the background carries, but like most manga and anime’s these days, it seems to rely alot on fan service (I know that isn’t a bad thing, but I seriously prefer good story to fan service any day). The story isn’t too bad, I guess it is mostly for laughs but I just didn’t get too into it after reading the first volume. I’ll check at least two more volumes and see where it goes from there, after all, most series start off slow and rough until eventually they begin to pick up speed and get amazingly good.
Hope you enjoy it,
