This season a number of really fun anime has been airing. Usually after a couple episodes I like to do some character sketches based on the initial designs. I have a few more in my Procreate folder to post but here are some from “Trigun Stampede” and “The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady”. Most of the seasonal shows I watch on Crunchyroll I pick them purely based on the art style of the show I watch pretty much all genres to get inspired.

Netflix recently released a new series called My Dad the Bounty Hunter. The character designs for the lead family are really inspiring. After an episode I would usually sketch some the characters doing something. After a while I had enough very rough sketches to go back and clean up the line-work and finish the sketches a bit more.

Really enjoyed Creed III the soundtrack is also phenomenal. I drew these boxing illustrations really trying not to look or think about Ippo a super famous boxing manga. At the office I keep a small traditional sketchbook once in a while after a quick lunch I like to do some car studies. It’s funny after a while I realized I had another series of cars I could put together in one layout.

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.

The last couple of weeks it’s been mostly lunchtime sketches at work and a couple Clip Studio drawings. I still try every month to finish a design for the monthly character design challenge topic. It’s always a great thinking/design exercise.

The last couple of weeks I have cut back on my daily sketches. Trying to figure out some animation workflows in Clip Studio. I have been doing weekend studies mostly trying to put in practice what I have been picking up recently.

I haven’t been doing many sketches lately mostly focused on learning 2D camera controls. I need to update this site for a sub-section that will feature my animation clips.

Not really doing much sketching mostly going through some Clip Studio guides for animation and storyboard notes.
I did get a couple copies of my physical sketchbook collection dated 2018-2019. It’s still a strange feeling to have a year’s worth of drawings in a glossy hardbound book.

Since the last post I have been doing smaller reference studies with the grease pencil in Clip Studio. I spent sometime working on grey scale values with clothing folds and soft lighting shadows. I did find a couple new fashion blogs that will come in handy for a couple of designs I have been trying to work on recently.
