Punched by Life Line Art

I think I drew this on Friday, it was a couple of days ago. I didn’t have a plan in mind really, I just drew and this came out. Then the idea of life punching us at the most random times came to mind. I have an idea of making this into a scene. We’ll see.

Terry Bogard Hat Salute V2

A redo of painting I did back in March 2020. I only did a couple of touch ups of the background and changed some of the lighting and color. The main changes were made to Terry in terms of the values and hues. The main part I mainly spent repainting were his arms.

First version can be seen here:

Terry Bogard Lunging Punch

I didn’t really have any plans when I started painting Terry. I just started painting forms so that I could play with the Real Tapered Wet Flat Brush. Again, I was amazed by how the strokes came out but sampling the colors was a pain. Of course the solution is to have a separate layer with the colors readily available off in some corner. I was thinking of adding some power effects to Terry’s punch but I think keeping it simple this time should be fine. I just wanted to focus on the pose and movement.

Yusuke walking line art

I really like Yusuke’s jacket outfit that he first wore in episode 5. Personally I prefer his uncombed hair, but I have an idea for a future drawing. When I scanned it, I noticed that I made his head too big so I made it smaller with Photoshop. On this piece I wanted to practice some foreshortening with Yusuke’s finger point.

Nube vs. Corona V.

As the whole world is trying to deal with the Corona Virus pandemic I felt I should at least make one piece about it. I just sketched some ideas and began painting as soon as I felt the idea was close enough. I really wanted to make another piece with ガしガし‘s style again. I was debating whether to make Corona’s image more closely related to the virus itself or make one up based on the name Corona. So I did the latter. Just after finishing it, I decided to add some saliva and dark shadows to Corona V.

Stay inside everyone, let’s end this virus together.

Nube Commuting Home

There’s a contest currently going on with Corel. It’s supposed to end today. As soon as I finished with my 2B painting I started working on this one. Aside from using a reference photo for the background I went ahead and painted Nube from memory. The original version was lighter and faded so I went ahead and added a multiply layer to add more color to it. I just started painting and just let it flow.

Hasta la proxima,
