Guts. That’s what Arin has. When they needed someone to fight he stood up despite going against a tank. Like seriously, even in the fight, Arin was showing no fear. Harley knew that the level was definitely unequal but wasn’t disrespectful about it No matter how many connecting punches Harley threw out, Arin didn’t back down and kept pushing towards Harley. I wonder if he as also trained like DJ Welch to stick close due to the size difference. I think when Harley learned that Arin wouldn’t go down easily, that’s when he went for a combination to try and end it. Despite the punishment and losing, Arin seemed like he wouldv’e tried to go towards the end. Respect.
This fight was really surprising. I had just learned about Justa Minx when the fighters were announced (I saw a couple of videos leading to the fight)and I had only seen clips of Haley dancing when they mentioned her prior to the fight (I don’t watch tiktoks currently). But, wow was this fight amazing. I think Haley had the better form and technique but Minx’s toughness and stronger punches ended up getting the win.
Somehow Justa Minx made such an epic moment also comical. The mouthpiece she was using made her look like she was smiling as she was getting punched. Going goblin mode is crazy.
Time has been a bit short lately, but I somehow managed to paint a piece in time (at least in my location) for Miyabi’s birthday. This time I’m trying out a new oil brush in photoshop from the dry oil brushes by Martina Palazzese. I quite like the texture it gives, especially to the line art. Hopefully I’ll have a bit more time to play around with it on my next painting.
I quite liked the outfit Miyabi showed on her instagram and the one Peace wore on another picture. So I decided to combine them.
Because of the lack of time today, I went with a flatter coloring style which I want to practice more and get better at. One artist whom I really look up to in this regard is Takato Yamamoto. You can see his work here:
Today I decided to paint using the Corel Painter real watercolors again. This time I decided to use different brush presets and they definitely act differently. But I guess that is to be expected. Looking at the end result, they give off that watercolor and Copic look. I used the inktober day 26 line art of Momochi’s last photobook. I wanted to emulate the coloring style of classic manga.
I really want to draw more of Momochi. Luckily the Country Girls dvd magazine has plenty of references of her interacting with the snow. And I really want to paint her in the red outfit from her last photobook. But before that, I want to make a New Year’s piece, I already have an idea so it’s just a matter of doing it.
Today’s prompt is hide. After a little bit of thought I decided to use the scans of Momoko’s last photobook as reference to draw today’s drawing. What I did differently today was just learn from the clothes and the tree used, I wanted to make my own pose. I was imagining a scene where Momoko was playing hide and seek and decided to give up her position in a cute way.
