Rei Ayanami Sweater line art

Line art originally done for Inktober 2022 day 7.

Can be seen here:

I didn’t like how I originally drew it, so before I inked/painted it I wanted to fix a couple of things. Mainly the face. It’s amazing how a couple of changes could make such a big differences.

Inktober 2022 11 kid Goku

Day 11. This time I chose to draw kid Goku. Yesterday’s pixiv theme was winking, hence today’s drawing. I made a version that felt off, so last minute I decided to redraw it again with different proportions. It’s amazing how such small changes can make a drawing look good or somehow off. I was thinking of adding Roshi’s sunglasses but that would have covered most of Goku’s face. I might give that a try at some point in the future.

Inktober 2022 10 Miyabi nostalgia

Day 10. Miyabi uploaded some pictures of the first days of her time in Berryz Koubou, It was so nostalgic. I’m so glad Miyabi is still active, and having her singing with Ai and Reina was not something I thought could happen. Hopefully they make more collaborations.

Inktober 2022 08 Naoko Kawai

It is day 8th. Today’s drawing is of Naoko Kawai, my favorite 80s idol, And that’s saying something because there are so many idols I love. I think I now am understanding the style that I may be setting on. Looking back at the last Naoko drawing I made, I didn’t quite like they way it looks. This though, I think is more my style.

Inktober 2022 06 Lynn Minmay

Day 6 of Inktober. This time I decided to draw Lynn Minmay. I saw this cute photo of Akina Nakmori talking in the phone that I thought would work very well. This time I decided to to add more hatching. For the hair I decided to follow the flow of the hair while for the jacket I decided to go for a more stylized hatching technique.

Everything was going well, but I did mess up twice this time. The maru pen got stuck and sent droplets of ink all around the left top corner of the drawing and then I touched the ink and smudged on the right hand sleeve. I uploaded a cleaned up version, but in the spirit of inktober I have also uploaded the original version as well.

As a side note, when I uploaded my drawings to Pinterest I got some Akina Nakamori photos as suggested similar pictures. I wonder if it had to do with what I had in the description, a recent search or …

Inktober 2022 04 Goku lineart

For day 4 I have decided to draw Goku. There was the meme of Goku in his drip which I thought was hilarious. I could care less of the Supreme brand, but what was fun about Toriyama was that artwork often showcased the Dragon Ball characters in trendy outfits. I always loved seeing Goku in different outfits. I think the most recent example in current Dragon Ball was the snow outfit used in the Dragon Ball Super Broly movie.

This time I decided to make Goku’s hair slightly less triangular, I guess making it somewhat soft. I also wanted to try out a different eye design. I finally got the chance to hatch for this drawing. But maybe I should play around with thinner lines next time I do a simple hatching technique.

Hasta la proxima,

Yoko Oginome Dancing Hero Stare Manga

Playin around with screen tones and stacking them gives some cool effects. Hatching gives even more variety but I didn’t do it in this drawing. For the newspaper I was going to just give it some texture with screen tones but decided to use the newspapers from the promotional video and edited to make it fit this drawing. In the original line art, I didn’t have the tuxedo men but it felt off without them.

Hasta la proxima,
