Inktober 2022 11 kid Goku

Day 11. This time I chose to draw kid Goku. Yesterday’s pixiv theme was winking, hence today’s drawing. I made a version that felt off, so last minute I decided to redraw it again with different proportions. It’s amazing how such small changes can make a drawing look good or somehow off. I was thinking of adding Roshi’s sunglasses but that would have covered most of Goku’s face. I might give that a try at some point in the future.

Grace Jones

Was looking at my Japanese vintage ads folder and came across one for Grace Jones advertising the New Celica. After that I learned that she was not only a model but also an actor (quickly found out about her role in the Conan movie) and a singer. My favorite song of hers is “I’ve Seen That Face Before”. I’ve never worked with such dark skin tones before so I really wanted to give it a try. There are more blue tones in the reference photo but since I used a red background I changed the tones accordingly. While I was at it I also changed the pose a bit.

Tomoko and Yū Wink

This is a colored version of the 10th day piece for Inktober 2019. I really like the relationship between Tomoko and Yū. I also love the way it has developed throughout the story. Originally this piece was supposed to be taking place in autumn, but since we are now in winter I decided to put them in a snowy scenery. This piece was painted with Corel Painter.

There are three versions. One “clean”, one with warm breath and one with snow (plus the warm breath). I don’t know how to post them here since they tend to get taken off when posted here. If you click the picture it will take you to Pixiv where you can see all three versions.

Or actually here is a preview from twitter (sadly the previews aren’t full sized).

Hasta la proxima,
