This one was in the chamber for a while now. I’m also planning to paint it with another background. But I still haven’t decided what the scene will be. This time I wanted to try out color screen tone. But I went about it the wrong way. A future piece I finally learned the proper way of using Clip Studio and man has it been so much easier.
Color really hits different. Though black and white also has it’s charm.
Line art originally drawn for Inktober 2022 day 12. The original drawing wasn’t showing the movement and power of Jackie and Wei’s fight so I made some slight changes. Can you guys tell what they were?
I wasn’t really sure how I would merge these two paintings. I know I wanted them to be back to back, so I flipped them accordingly. The colors were also not where I wanted them, so I adjusted them to their current form. When I put them on the same canvas there was a gap between them which had me stumped. At first I filled it in with some solid colors that made a clear separation between them. But that was just too simple and boring. Then I finally figured out that I could just merge them and have them interact with each other. I first had the backgrounds blend with each other. As I kept working I finally came to the realization that I could have both versions of Akemi back to back with their clothes appearing on each other’s side of the canvas. Then the idea of having hair strands move from the shy Akemi to the hardened Akemi came to my mind. Luckily the idea worked out. There was still something I felt was missing though. That’s why I decided to add the soul gem between the two Akemis. Behind the soul gem I wanted light to be emanating from it, but when I darkened the left side it looked a lot like feathers so I changed the original concept to be a wing motif. I think this version of both of them together looks much better.
By now, any Captain Disillusion and Atarashii Gakko fans have seen their collaboration video by now. It was great for one, and it melded each other’s abilities quite nicely. Seriously, who would have thought that this collaboration was even possible? It’s like when Night Tempo and Sayumi Michishige made a song together. I’m hoping there are more crossovers of things and people I like in the future.
Captain D’s videos:
There were a couple of ideas of what I wanted to draw, but passing up the opportunity of the Captain dancing with as a member of Atarashi Gakko was something I didn’t want to pass up. It was incredible. Thank you both for giving us this gift. No wonder the Captain was gone for so long. If you guys have a chance go through both of their works, they are amazing.
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.
My favorite fun news channel Internet Today was recently animated by the channel SCP Explained – Story & Animation. Why were their likeness used? I don’t know but that’s what made it even funnier. I’ve been wanting to make fan art for Eliot and Ricky for a while now. This was a fun one.
I started with the background to establish the colors. Then I moved on to Siren Head who I wanted to barely start appearing among the trees. Right behind Ricky and Eliot I wanted a manic SCP-096. I have him running and debris and smoke exploding along his path. But that all ended up being covered by Eliot and Ricky. While I was painting I had the idea to have them running just in front of SCP-096, but I want the duo to be the main focus.
I made two versions of this piece, one where they used Eliot’s old hair style and one where he has his current shaved head. The outfits and gear I modeled after the animation video.
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.
The first line art of Akemi Homura has now been painted. I wasn’t too sure about what to do with the background since I want to differentiate them from the timid Homura before becoming a magical girl and the new bitter version after having to live her nightmare over and over. I edited the line art a bit before painting.
The final and main fight. iDubbbzTV VS. Doctor Mike. This fight was intense, There was heart, power, drama, skill, it had everything.
But before all of that we had the US national anthem sung by Airsoft Fatty. He did not disappoint. His presence was a nice little surprise, I hope he is a recurring aspect of the event.
At the beginning it was somewhat equal, but as time went on you could see the experience and physicality of Doctor Mike taking the edge. As he kept catching headshots, Ian’s technique began to suffer. It got to the point that Ian was forced to work it more as a slugfest whenever he recovered some energy. Despite Mike’s accuracy, he seemed to leave his body wide open throughout the fight. If Ian managed to add more power to his punches then the fight might have gone a bit differently. As long as both could hold out till the last rounds, they would have gone even harder and shown their strategy play out. This was an impressive fight, as it stands it seems like both are open to fighting again if Creator Clash 2 does happen. Ian so far seems to be pointing to yes.
Guts. That’s what Arin has. When they needed someone to fight he stood up despite going against a tank. Like seriously, even in the fight, Arin was showing no fear. Harley knew that the level was definitely unequal but wasn’t disrespectful about it No matter how many connecting punches Harley threw out, Arin didn’t back down and kept pushing towards Harley. I wonder if he as also trained like DJ Welch to stick close due to the size difference. I think when Harley learned that Arin wouldn’t go down easily, that’s when he went for a combination to try and end it. Despite the punishment and losing, Arin seemed like he wouldv’e tried to go towards the end. Respect.
