It’s been two years since we witnessed Goku’s ultra instinct (in animate form). I’m surprised it took me this long to actually make a painting. When it comes to Dragon Ball’s many forms, my favorite is Kaio Ken because it makes the usage of it a gamble and gives it stakes every time Goku uses it. Of course this was later replaced and pretty much forgotten when the Super Saiyan form was introduced. Luckily, during the run of Super it was brought back and paired up with Super Saiyan Blue.

The second form that I really liked was Ultra Instinct. This brought it back more to fighting and not so much who has the most power. It’s a form that requires a state of mind more than anything so that the body can move on experience and instinct during a fight. Plus the mastered form looks really cool.
What I wanted to try out was Rumiko Takahashi’s classic style of painting. Looking at various artworks I decided to paint Ryoga in this way using only one color for each section of Ryoga and using only the saturation of the paint to make color and value variations. But only ever so slightly. But before I did paint it, I went over the rough draft with my mechanical pencil to darken and indent the paper. Once this was done I then erased the whole paper and painted with whatever graphite managed to survive and the indentations left behind. The effect wasn’t too bad, but it was obvious that I needed to add some type of outline. For this instance I decided to do that by using my Copic multiliner and a Stabilo pen for the darker areas.
Decided to just do a quick drawing today. My plans are to probably paint it with watercolors. Although I might just paint it digitally at some point in the future as well, we’ll see. I didn’t really have any idea of what I wanted to draw really, but as I was sketching I came up with this drawing.
During this year’s Halloween, Miyabi cosplayed in different costumes. One of them was of a cute cat girl. For one of the photos she uploaded she had a really embarrassed and shy face that caught my attention and I wanted to try and draw/paint it. Looking at several clips of Miyabi it seems she has had various occasions like these where her shyness shows through. I really think that’s one of her charm points.
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.
