Waking Up Rei Ayanami

Here is the final part of this painting of Rei Ayanami. I took many rests as I was finishing it up due to various reasons but I’m glad I did because it gave me a chance to see it with new eyes. On top of that, at some point I finally began experimenting with the blending tool. The soft one is the one I eventually chose to use. For harder blending and separation of colors the sergeant tool is is my best tool. But for certain textures such as the skin I need softer blending sometimes.

Overall this was a fun painting to play around with.

Hasta la proxima,


Nube vs. Corona V.

As the whole world is trying to deal with the Corona Virus pandemic I felt I should at least make one piece about it. I just sketched some ideas and began painting as soon as I felt the idea was close enough. I really wanted to make another piece with ガしガし‘s style again. I was debating whether to make Corona’s image more closely related to the virus itself or make one up based on the name Corona. So I did the latter. Just after finishing it, I decided to add some saliva and dark shadows to Corona V.

Stay inside everyone, let’s end this virus together.

Hasta la proxima,


Trying out different coloring styles: Lynn Minmey

My brother showed me this cool picture that was drawn and then had sections of the dress cut out so that the artist could use the sky as her dresses color. Since I was already drawing Minmey so that I could practice with my pen on bristol paper. Bristol paper is cool and all but it starts to bubble up and break apart when I use water media on it so I decided to paint it digitally. And since I was already preparing  the drawing for using photographs as the “coloring” base I figure it would be a good enough time to practice different coloring styles and backgrounds.

I was just focusing on drawing and painting so I didn’t keep any records of the process this time.

That will be all for now.
