great to see a progression GIF, especially the first sketch layer. I like to see how artists begin their sketches as this helps me to understand their workflow more than anything else :)
it's amazing how neatly your work progresses, there's almost no changes between the roughs and the lineart.
great metal rendering on all the parts.

thank you! I tend to keep it as clean as I can during the sketch phase cause I easily get confused.xD

By Saint Vitus, I need help.

Okay, so Aika Crisis is almost complete. I think there's only two or three chapters for me to edit, so the release is inevitable. Funny it's taken me this long since, you know, DbEG was the story everyone actually wanted first but I decided I would juggle it with the SWS prequel series and release two full parts of that before finishing Aika Crisis. Because that's how you keep the momentum going for a book, right? That's how you please the customer, by giving them a banana split when they asked for a hot chocolate.

Let this thread be an example of how NOT to go about handling two huge stories at the same time.

With all that said, Aika Crisis will be here soon. Not sure if I'll just use the art some of you beautiful lads have gifted me or commission more. Hmm. We'll see. After this, I promise War Cloud and Dawn and Dusk (one of my favorites right there) will be worked on next for release.

Some day, when I finish all of DbEG and SWS, I'll do Anzu: A Friend From the Grave as well. Don't you think I've forgotten about that story. I had so much fun writing it and it legitimately left me with a slight feeling of emptiness after I finished it.

BiS, Idol Is Dead 

When people talk about the legend of BiS and Pour Lui this is the album that says it all. BiS being the original Alt Idols. Pour Lui's vision and antics paved the way for every group to follow. Released in 2012, this is nothing short of an excellent and powerful record with a selection of amazing songs and great attitude. It's heavy on the music, with the vocals mixed Perfume style, meaning the members are a part of the song like the band rather than the most upfront element. This is before Kenta Matsukuma worked out the WACK formula, so it's more chance taking and creative. There are crazy songs like "Idol Is Dead", distorted idol anthems like "Nerve", fun slamming Punk like "CHELSEA" and a whole variety of Rock stylings. Who can forget the music videos for songs like "My lxxx" where the members run naked through the suicide forest or "PPCC" where they get into a gang brawl and lick each other's wounds. The highlight is the most iconic Alt Idol song ever "primal." the excellent album finale with a powerful arrangement and chorus. I have known BiS slightly longer than BiSH and yet only now have I listened to this album. It's really damn good.

(The video for "primal." is kinda gross and unsettling so I'll link just the song)

BILLIE IDLE, bi bi bi bi bi 

The Punk Rock NOT IDOLS who have two 1st Gen BiS members (now 3 with Pour Lui joining last year) and a fun energetic 10 song album. It's nothing shocking or overly unique, but it's pretty fun with a good attitude and delivery. There are some cool songs and I like the vocals/arrangements. BILLIE IDLE are focused on that Punk energy, it's pretty fun in tone, there is only one slower song to break it out. Fun album.


Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders, Wakage Ga Itaru 

A new album, this is a group I don't fully understand, no thanks to completely missing the message in their music. This is certainly a meaner Punk spirited album. It goes Midori lite halfway through with an awesome rocking Jazz band behind the group. This is where the record shines with high energy drums, stand up bass and piano. Early on it's rougher guitars and deadpan vocals. This album starts subpar but kicks it up big time by the end.


Yapoos, Dial Y For Murder 

Thanks Pipe for showing me the really awesome song "Men's Junan", now we have the whole album, my full introduction to Jun Togawa also. Pretty cool album, every song is different from the next, cool style and great vocals. Lots of variety and good bits. I liked the first half more but it was overall enjoyable.


Junko Ohashi, Magical   

A nice City Pop album. The big basslines, grooves, instrumentation and great vocals. I even downloaded a vinyl rip with crackling in quiet parts. There is something nice about the tone of this album. Like the cover it's a look at a shining memory of days past. It's only the 3rd City Pop record I've heard, and despite the good element it has the same issues I have with the other ones. It has it's moments but a good amount of the tracks come and go. "Telephone Number" is the classic and "Dancin'" is a stand-out track late album. Junko gives a stand out vocal performance on "I Love You So". Overall it's a pretty decent album, it has it's fun, the instrumentation is super cool and the vocals solid. There are relativity few surprises though.

But I didn't notice there are more of them on the same site.
I want to draw Grass/trees type of BGs So this will be very helpful

also circles.
took 9 minutes for 400 circles. went back and forth and on each grey square I increased the zoom to practice different sizes. Partly the reason a drawing doesn't go right is because the guidelines are not right, and not being able to draw a perfect circle (or near enough) is certainly one of those problems.
also different sizes of circle require slightly different methods of drawing them.

I know the last thing we need is yet another collection of tutorials but these seemed pretty great and simple.

tutorials are, as he says "Not a detail step by step tutorial, but focus on the workflow"
easy to follow with any photoshop/GIMP software it seems.

mostly how to do different background stuff/visual effects.

the artist is also "a hybrid designer/programmer who also happens to be color blind" which is exactly what I am so it's extra strange lol.

plus he does timelapse videos and has DeviantArt and all that.
and animations too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGGUeyZ1xAA

also, wasn't there a huge thread for posting this sort of thing?

You're right on drawing many on a page thing
I think that's partly because the amount of detail we feel we need to put in is lower, as well as it's actually faster to draw smaller regardless what it is. For quite rough things it's a great idea to sketch smaller anyway so you don't put lots of detail into a really rough sketch.
also fineliner vs ballpoint can also affect fatigue as one tends to sketch guidelines more with ballpoint, but go straight in with fineliner.

#835 stands out as pretty unique and #837-845 were much higher quality than the rest, like really neat.
and well done, you're nearly at the end point!!!!

dogs are also pretty good. you beat me to it for drawing animals haha
When learning a new thing, like an animal, it might be good to try and draw guidelines to break down the body shape. it might help when trying to draw from memory later. your scribbly line style works wonders for giving them fur though.
