Sanji God of Cookery

Today I decided to paint Sanji who I drew for day 22 of Inktober this year.
Here it is: https://darkcloudxero.com/2020/10/22/inktober-2020-22-chef-sanji-god-of-cookery/

Seriously, if you guys haven’t seen the movie the God of Cookery do give it a try. Somehow I feel Sanji would definitely fit into that world as a martial arts chef. It’s a shame that we only had about two decades of good Hong Kong movies that gave us a glimpse of what anime could look like in real life (although Stephen Chow continued to do so well into the 2000s).

Once again I decided to go for an anime painting style, the challenge this time being that I would not look at references for the coloring style. For the next planned painting I also wish to imitate a 90s anime look but I haven’t quite settled on which style yet. I might just end up doing more than one, we’ll see.

Hasta la proxima,

Inktober 2020 31 Crawl Skull Knight

Today’s last drawing for inktober and for Halloween is Skull Knight. Although it makes perfect sense, it’s still sad to see that someone else also suffered because of the God Hand. It’s poetic that both the king and Guts donned the Berserker Armor, which also means that the armor is really old as well. I wonder what the coming chapters will bring us.

Inktober is finally over! Happy Halloween everyone. Stay safe.

Inktober 2020 29 Simone de Beauvoir

Since I first saw the teasers of Nier Automata back when I had yet to play the game, I had seen a segment of Simone. The song was beautiful and the way it fought looked amazing. And when I actually got to play it, I knew that I had to draw her at some point. It’s a shame it took me this long to actually draw her. I was thinking of inking it, but I still don’t know what I will do later with it so I will leave in as line art.

Inktober 2020 28 Float Morda

Today’s prompt is float. Since we are nearing Halloween and the prompt is float, I decided to draw a witch. After a little bit of thought I decided to draw Morda from Berserk. I wonder is she will be joining the party once they leave the island? It would be strange is she didn’t. This time I decided to just go ahead and come up with a pose from my mind. When I was done, I noticed that it was similar to what was drawn in chapter 361. I guess that image stayed in mind.

Inktober 2020 27 Music Miguel

Today’s prompt is music. I wanted to make something more Halloween themed. At the beginning I was thinking of doing perhaps a more realistic take on the Spooky Scary Skeletons segment where a skeleton was playing the drums on another skeleton. Then I remembered Miguel from Coco and changed my mind. I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve actually done a drawing on Coco. Both Halloween and Dia de los Muertos will be here soon. Man time flies.

Inktober 2020 25 Buddy Tomoko and Masaki

I had this idea a couple of days ago but was worried that I wouldn’t have enough time to draw it. Luckily I was able to make it. For today’s prompt we have buddy. It’s strange, but Tomoko’s and Yoshida’s relationship reminds me of G Gundam. You know, how like in the show they communicated through their fists (although it’s just Yoshida actually punching, then again Tomoko attacks using even more dangerous moves). I really loved Yoshida’s look and segments from the amusement park chapters.

Inktober 2020 23 Kiki and Jiji

I’m a little fatigued and wanted to do just a quick and fast drawing today. Decided to go with a drawing of Kiki and Jiji based on this reference photo: https://bbs.ruliweb.com/hobby/board/300095/read/26133755

Don’t know where to find her account, but it seems like the cosplayer goes by the name Rain.

Inktober 2020 21 Sleep Buono!

Last year for day 24 of inktober I had given this drawing a try, although I had modified it a bit. Since the prompt for today was sleep, I decided to try once again. Since it is a close up I was able to add a bit more detail to the drawing. Despite having a blueray with the Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! PV the scene where they are napping is a bit blurry due to some effects they used. I had stitch different parts together to get the scene together. Buono! is so nostalgic…

Inktober 2020 20 Goth Lolita

I wanted to do a drawing that was done entirely with hatching and cross hatching. Looking through my references I decided to draw @yu_ra_ne , I believe she is a model? But she has a lot of beautiful photos that I could choose from. I decided to go with one where she was dressed as a goth lolita since it would better fit into the Halloween aesthetic.
This is the photo used: https://twitter.com/yu_ra_ne/status/1144253888817750019/photo/1
