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.

Bulma and Goku Aliens lineart

It’s weird, drawing is way slower digitally for me. For some reason this drawing took a long time to make and then clean up… Perhaps for line art I should just draw traditionally from now on and digitize afterword.

This is a follow-up to the drawing I made of Goku also parodying Aliens.

It can be seen here:

I feel like redoing it at some point.

As for this drawing, I was thinking of following the reference photo but in the end thought that would be boring. So I changed it to make Goku prepared to fight. I originally had him wearing his Kame uniform, but decided to use Newt’s outfit instead. As I was looking through the movie I noticed that the gun in the poster was probably a prototype prop before they settled on the actual guns or something. That’s when I had to come to the realization that I would have to change that as well. Luckily I managed to find good reference models online. I was thinking of adding the dual gun setup but for now I settled with only the M240 Incinerator Unit. I don’t know why, but that took a while. I seriously need to learn what the method to draw straight lines is digitally because doing it by hand has me redoing lines over and over. Next time I should also trace over the completed line art because going in and cleaning it takes way too long…

Airi Suzuki Nap

This is a study of Airi Suzuki. I want to do more artwork of her to celebrate her 20th anniversary. For this drawing I want to practice different coloring styles. For the line art, I went for thin lines which I liked how it looked when doing Inktober this year. The inking in the hair is too dark, it doesn’t give the image of it being a lighter brown. Perhaps I should just make lighter hatching. Perhaps at a later date.

Inktober 2022 17 2B

Day 17. Took me a while to come up with today’s subject but decided to draw 2B from a bottom up view. I wonder if it’s visible with with just the line art though. I think that aspect of my drawing won’t really show until I either ink/hatch it or paint it though. The skirt pattern design was a bit annoying but luckily I found a good reference that shows exactly how it looks. Well that and I can omit a lot of it through the ripples and 2B’s arm.

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 05 Shizuku Kuroe lineart

Didn’t get to hatch this drawing or ink it (although I did start hatching the eyes and eyebrows by accident) but here is today’s drawing. This time I chose to draw Marin Kitagawa as Shizuku Kuroe.

Akemi Homura glance

The counterpart to my previous painting of Akemi. This time it’s of her after getting in the time loop. I pondered a bit about the background and decided to go with the scene of her fighting against Walpurgisnacht. I wanted a darker background though so made it with twilight colors. The floating buildings are such a stunning visual that I wanted them present.

Since this will be a pairing for the last painting, I have modified the previous painting. I’ll add them both together at a later date.

Yor Berlint assasin

I was having a hard time deciding what to do with the background for this piece. After a couple of failed attempts I played around with a cloud background inspired by the official summer artwork by Tatsuya Endo. Although that was only as a placeholder for the painting process of Yor, I ended up liking it. But it felt empty so I decided to add something else. In the end I ended up painting the city hall building. Manga or anime only showcased one angle of the building though, but luckily it was enough to make out most of the features. Though most of it ended up being covered by Yor. Pretty much all of the painting was done with Toko Suzuki’s brushes.
