Line art originally done for inktober 2022 day 5.

I’ll be trying out different painting styles with this year’s batch of line art. The background is of a photo I took of a catholic building back in the day and used the screen tone filter. Just trying something new (and didn’t feel like painting a background this time).

Kimono Muscle Girl drawing 2

It’s been a while since I last worked and uploaded one of the three drawings (inked) of Michiko Nishiwaki from the movie My Lucky Stars. Once I learned how inking works, I can just jump in and draw without much thought. Even more so doing it digitally since I can undo any sections that I don’t think quite work. It’s actually quite therapeutic.

Skull Knight Loss

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.

Kyōko Koizumi ‘Dunk’ Cover line art

This is based on a cover of ‘Dunk’ featuring Haruko Sagara as Sukeban Deka Kyōko Nakamura. I drew this free hand with my pen, without a rough draft which gave a rather unfortunate facial features. I had to edit things out in order to get it all working and looking more presentable.

For those who actually visit the site, here is the unfortunate original line art:

Sebun Keeping at it

A quick drawing today.

You know, it’s a shame that Seven was pretty much forgotten after she was introduced. I really enjoyed the addition of her character and I would even go on to say she is my favorite character. They could have done some interesting stories with her and Legoshi but I guess things just end up that way sometimes.
For this drawing I wanted to convey a melancholic scene but one of hope since despite Seven’s hardships she didn’t give up and continued to move forward. I drew and inked this drawing traditionally and then added the hatching and screentone using Clip Studio.

Sayumi Michishige long shirt pen hatched Paper texture

I had drawn this back in I believe June 3rd of this year. Back then I had no idea of how to color it. I did at some point wanted to make it with gray tones but couldn’t figure it out. Today on my Youtube recommended’s list was a video featuring the art of tourniiquet, this one here.

After seeing it I decided to give it another try. I liked the way it turned out but wanted to add more contrast and texture somewhere so I eventually ended up using some paper texture for the background. I really like the way it came out.

Sayumi Michishige short hair

I attempted doing an ink drawing of Sayu with her short hair back in 2018 for inktober but wasn’t satisfied with the end result, so I decided to draw her again. This time I used a combination of both ink and digital hatching and some small manipulations to the diamonds below the table which were done in the wrong perspective.

Really love the way short hair compliments Sayumi.

Drive Shoot vs Tiger Shoot Hyuga and Tsubasa

After working on the Nier piece I remembered how fun it was to draw using ink. I wanted to give the shooting battle between Hyuga’s tiger shot and Tsubasa’s drive shot a try. I drew Hyuga and Tsubasa using my g pen and maru pen then I added the power lines using Clip Studio. It took me a while to come up with the poses. If I were to redo it I would have Tsubasa bend his upper body further forward.
