Today is day four. While looking through my references I found a cover photo of Nakahara Meiko’s “Yakimochiyaki Rumba Boy”. In it she is wearing a blazer with the imposing shoulder pads which looks amazing. I quite like the style.

Those shoulder pads reminded me of Chizuru Kagura from the King of Fighters. I really like her style and strong aesthetic. I’m surprised it took me this long to finally draw her.
I had completely forgotten about Inktober until I posted the first drawing today just by pure chance. Luckily drawing doesn’t take me that long anymore, so posting everyday shouldn’t be a problem despite my schedule.
To start off Day one of Inktober 2021, I decided to draw Tomoko and Kuroki from Watamote. Seems like they have been regulars every year. I just quite like their friendship, similarities and contrast in their personalities.
I really need to catch up on the latest chapters, I’ll probably do it tonight.
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.
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.
Didn’t have much of an idea for today so I just started drawing and ended up with this. One more day and inktober will be completed. I should probably plan out what I want to draw for tomorrow since I won’t have too much time and it would be nice if I could watch a movie or something to fit the Halloween mood.
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.
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.
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.
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.
