During holiday break I started cleaning up my MANY random folders of WIP artwork. I am not sure when I will get to my yearly art book production hopefully before spring. Some recent illustrations and my end of the year Blender video collection for 2022. I have a couple of other things in rough render WIP folders but I need to figure out a proper PC build for 2023.
One of the weekly shows I am watching Gundam: Witch from Mercury, really interested to see where it all leads to by the end of season 1. Also recently finished Wednesday it was a very interesting show.
I recently watched Kamen Rider: Black Sun it was fun. Towards the end of the series I wanted to do a couple of illustrations based on some of the main characters. Also a couple of late night Pinterest studies.
In between a couple of projects I have been filling up the iPad with some pages. The artist Gaziter created a fun character and I had to try some pose studies with him. Also a couple of characters to print for a Marvel sticker sheet, some Pinterest studies and a screenshot from a segment from a Blender experiment. I liked the lighting in the alley it reminded me of a background from Batman: The Animated Series.
Some of my social media time is spent looking at fan artists. I love how people choose to interpret other peoples character designs. Lately the artist YoAdrianDK and Rariatoo have really inspired me in terms of drawing less complex but fun styles. I attempted to do some fanart of their OC’s.
I am a huge fan of Studio Trigger the team constantly does some of the best character designs today. Their most recent work Cyberpunk: Edgerunners really stood out from first scene to the very end. I had to do a couple of fan illustrations after watching it all. Also a portrait study completed in Procreate and some very loose skateboarders’ studies using a basic Clip Studio flat ink brush.
Spent sometime doing some fan art for a recent anime series called Lycoris Recoil. The character designs and clothing was pretty top notch study material, it really emphasized different personalties wear different styles of clothing to reflect who they are.
A another series of fan art drawings. An illustration based on Prey the new Predator movie, another sticker set series this time based on Dance Danseur. Lastly a pose collection based on Kimberly from Street Fighter 6.
Some recent fan art drawings based on some character designs I really like.
Vampire Scarlett based on artist @YoAdrianDK, Lurie an OC based on @Gaziter design and some sticker designs for a recent golf anime called Birdie Wing.
I have been watching an anime called Dance Danseur about the world of ballet. The MAPPA style of bodies in motion is a fascinating study to try. I have been on Pinterest looking through ballet poses and doing nightly studies in Clip Studio with the basic pencil chunky brush, one of my favorite brushes to use just to capture basic form.
Late nights I have a couple Twitch art streamers I like to have on for background distraction noise. One of them is Ergo_Josh his streams are very chill and easy to listen to. He recently posted a Draw This in Your style based on his original character. I had to do a couple of poses, expressions and a scene with his character. It’s good practice.
On the weekly watch list is Spy x Family. It’s a bit different from what the trailer showed I expected Mr. and Mrs. Smith but it changes up very early. The character designs are really fun pretty much after an episode finishes I have to try a couple of character sketches. These drawings have been on my iPad in various design states just posting what’s kinda done.
