Inktober 2022 04 Goku lineart

For day 4 I have decided to draw Goku. There was the meme of Goku in his drip which I thought was hilarious. I could care less of the Supreme brand, but what was fun about Toriyama was that artwork often showcased the Dragon Ball characters in trendy outfits. I always loved seeing Goku in different outfits. I think the most recent example in current Dragon Ball was the snow outfit used in the Dragon Ball Super Broly movie.

This time I decided to make Goku’s hair slightly less triangular, I guess making it somewhat soft. I also wanted to try out a different eye design. I finally got the chance to hatch for this drawing. But maybe I should play around with thinner lines next time I do a simple hatching technique.

Hasta la proxima,

Ranma in the Sunset

Line art from inktober 2021 day 3.

I wasn’t too sure what to do with the background, but as I was looking through my screenshot references I came upon a couple of a sunset that I wanted to replicate.

Reference here:

I was wondering whether to change the colors of the outfit from the reference of Kyôko Koizumi:

But I quite liked this color combination so I decided to keep it. As for the color of the sneakers, I was playing around with the idea of various colors like purple but I ended up with this black accent ones.

Flying Magical Girl Airi Suzuki pencil Line Art

I found a fansite that had a large collection of Airi’s photos that I had no seen before. One of the albums contained photos of Airi’s collaboration with Pivotdoor. There’s a lot of possible drawing ideas but I was really drawn to Airi flying with a broom like a magical girl. Her photos are always so fun and full of energy. That smile is really infectious.

Dragon Ball Bunnies

I went for an 80s anime painting style this time. Doing simple colors can really pop, I need to practice in more simplistic coloring styles. I have a couple of artists that I can learn from. As for this specific drawing, I want to try painting it in my style as well. That will be a future project.

The original drawing was done for Inktober 2021 day 29. I remember that I really wanted to emphasize the more round designs that Toriyama used to use back in the days, a style that much prefer. The painting really helped emphasize the curves which I love.

Still annoyed that Lunch has been forgotten.

Inktober 2021 Day 21

I really want more people to watch the original DragonBall. It’s such a great series. I’ve recently started rewatching some episodes and felt the urge to draw Bulma. I really love the more rounded eyes that Toriyama used to draw in his characters. In the more recent designs, they are more like windows while before they were somewhat shaped like real eyes but enlarged and exaggerated of course.

On another note, while writing this I just noticed that Bulma is always changing her style. In every story throughout the series she is wearing a new outfit and sometimes hairstyle. I’m surprised I never really noticed that.

Hasta la proxima,
