I forgot what chapter I last read so I decided to go back and re-read a couple of chapters. Among them was ch. 186.2 where Yuri is wearing a happi for their school festival stall. Something about seeing her squatting like a yanki looking bored was really aesthetic to me. In fact, there are a couple other Watamote ideas that sparked from me reading these chapters. I really won’t have any lack of drawing ideas.
It’s been a while since I last played Smash, I grew up with the original 64 version so that’s what I have in mind whenever I think about it. When Terry was announced for the series I wanted to finally give the new ones a try but I rarely play games anymore. But yesterday when I arrived from one of my jobs, my brother excitedly asked if I knew who the next and final Smash character was. I jokingly said Sora since I have always been told by my friends and other brother that it would never happen due to the licenses needed. But I always foolishly believed. I finally got to see the trailer this morning and… it was amazing. I felt goosebumps and it actually brought some tears out. The attention to detail and effort to showcase Sora was amazing. I also loved the tagline, “Sora is finally here!”. I’m so glad there was a huge push by Kingdom Hearts fans to get the attention needed so that this was made possible. Now with Sora and Terry in the game, it might finally be time for me to get a Switch. Plus, it seems the new Switch version will be released soon. Although, I have yet to played Kingdom Hearts III. I should really get on that as well.
Sora and Mario really make an amazing duo. That handshake was so iconic and was a nice homage to when Sora and Mickey did it. To fit with Sora’s personality, I wanted to make a fun and happy piece.
For the fifth day I drew Momochi. I finally got to see parts of “Momo Play” (a dvd series where Momochi cosplays various outfits). Among them was one where Momochi cosplays as a maid which is just freakin cute. I just couldn’t resist drawing her. The reference used was from where she was walking down the stairs. I went for a manga look.
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.
This was originally drawn for Inktober 2020 day 31, but I wasn’t happy with the proportions. It can be seen here:
I fixed those using PhotoShop and fixed a couple of areas. The hatching was done using Clip Studio.
Skulll Knight’s story was already sad after seeing the brief flash back from one of the latest chapters. But it just got even more sad because we won’t know any more about him due to the tragic loss of Kentaro Miura. We will always have to wonder what his ultimate goals and journey would entail.
For today’s drawing, I have Momochi in her “Ai no Dangan” outfit riding a motorcycle. There are a lot of options and possibilities when it comes to adding a background. Maybe I should try out different styles when I end up painting it.
