La Venganza de Don Ramon

This is the colored version of the line art I made for Don Ramon, a character of “El Chavo del 8”. Kind of looks like a Mexican version of Xehanort. I like the way the digital painting meshed with the ink hatching.

Here is the line art:

Here is the painted version:

La Venganza de Don Ramon ink

While looking through my references I came upon a picture that had Don Ramon (a character from “El Chavo Del 8”, my favorite one) and Fujiwara no Mokou. This picture compared both of their expressions and grins which I found very funny.

this is the picture that I’m talking about:

And here is the drawing:

On another note, it seems like posting Pixiv links here no longer shows the full image, but I just found out I can upload images to Pinterest and they do show fully here. So Just might start doing that from now on.

Luffy vs. Natsu while Naruto observes

So here we have another drawing for another contest that popped up. I want to say thanks to LittleBabyDollxx for giving me the info otherwise i wouldn’t even have known about it.

The theme revolved around the usage of three characters each from one of these series; One Piece (definitely one of my all time favorites), Fairy Tail (Hiro Mashima has not disappointed me yet, I became a fan from his last work Rave Master), and Naruto.

I decided to make it revolve as a battle, but because I only really know about Luffy and Natsu (I did not really get into Naruto when I read a couple of volumes, maybe I’ll give it another chance sometime in the future) I put Naruto as kind of filler. The back story goes something like this; Luffy and Natsu want to find out who is strongest and prove themselves to their respective comrades and the world, while Naruto fought some strong foe (I’ll let you guys use your knowledge and imagination to come up with someone) and won, but still got battle scarred. As he lay on the beach he was to witness an amazing battle by two of the worlds strongest warriors.

Personally I think the drawing looks much better without a background. Reason being that I felt I rushed the beach a bit too much and thus sacrificed a lot of the details. I don’t feel it looks too bad, but it does not meld well with the three figures. I would have to add some color to the lighting that touch Luffy, Natsu and Naruto so that they looked natural. But seeing as I only had one day to work on it, and if I added such details I would lose time and maybe not get the chance to turn something in. Although incomplete this piece should be sufficient (or so I hope).

Hope you enjoy it,

How to Draw Challenge: The Thirteenth – Solid Snake (COLOR)

Solid Snake, probably the coolest old guy ever. I seriously wanted to work on some hard lines especially in the face, and what better way to do that then to use one of the most iconic old mans we have seen so far in gaming history. The Metal Gear series truly deserves all the recognition it has acquired so far. The game play is extremely interesting and fun, plus the story is really well made. Although some of the evenths of the last title of Metal Gear made it seem like the saga was over, I have read some interviews where Hideo Kojima mentioned that the story might advance a bit more. Hopefully that will happen, after all it would be awesome to see Snake hiding under a box at least one more time.

Hope you enjoy it,
