Oh wow, fantastic pieces. I love the line work and shading. All very tight drawings with great style. Really nice looking stuff here!

yup tutorials are great because they break down complex subjects into simple to grasp bitesize pieces. but I think you still need to do your won study on top of tutorials to make the knowledge your own.

It's always amazing to see the variety of OCs that exist out there that I would have never drawn if I just stuck to my own cast.
100% true, I'm constantly amazed by the things I've seen other artists do that just never came into my own mind to do. Especially surreal stuff. I'm hoping to take a bit more influence from surreal artworks because they really are out-of-the-box stuff.

Awesome requests you've got there! I love the style as always, great hair. keep it up! I'm sure you will take aspects from the characters you draw and put it into your own artwork to make even more varied characters.

@Lego Thanks! Sometimes I find it's easier drawing other people's characters too X'D
Let's see... sketching takes the longest for me. For these I estimate 2-3 hours, between looking at various sketches and such.
Lineart is roughly an hour. Shading another hour.
In total, I spent about 4-6 hours for each? I drew them on separate days.

@Manimal Thank you! ^^

@Suuper Thanks! XD Yep, tutorials are how I learn things best I find.
No kidding, I especially love seeing the other worlds artists see in their minds. Great drawing and writing inspiration!


Finished up requests from DA -

MisterDuwang's character, Nova


From MR, BobbyJoe's character Lane
Digital pieces always take me longer. This one I actually experimented with skin shading as I usually just shading with gray and multiply the layer. Here I chose a darker pink instead, something I've seen other artists do, and I quite like the outcome. Gotta work on it more...



This one is my character c: One whom I always see as wearing her cap low over her eyes (I'm not avoiding drawing her eyes, I promise o-o)
No one is perfect . . . that's why there's erasers and extra paper.

lovely pieces!
the coloured digital one looks nice.well done on the magic effect, although I think where the pink covers the characters clothes, it doesn't look like it's glowing, if that was the intention. So maybe adding another layer with overlay-mode, and panting white or a bright colour to give it a glow on the clothes would look better.

my favourite is the last one, partly because I'm partial to strap clips and clothing details haha. The vector/triangle fade out
at the bottom is a nice way to cut the illustration down without just fading it out or cropping it.

Thanks for the lighting tip suuper c: I will try that out.

Drawing's been slow this month. Haven't been doing a lot of finished pieces, although I have been doing many sketches, albeit really messy sketches.
Here's some finished stuff from over the past month.

Just love how your characters look. I'm always trying to figure out what their backstory is and stuff. Great pencil work as always. What's the last one? Nice colouring too.

Messy sketches are probably at least 50% of my output haha
lovely pieces as always.
the last one has a lovely colour scheme, great wind/cloud swirls!

All these years later and your inked drawings are still some of the best manga-styled art on the internet :)

Impressive as ever and the colours look awesome on the last one! Inked or coloured your drawings are always very good!

@Lego Thanks! The first drawing actually has 3 random characters I drew with no particular story in mind, but you can guess what their theme is. The last one is a redraw of one of a pair of old characters whom I called The Frogmaster Brothers. I once imagined they were part of a Guild where the guildmaster was a giant frog  :hmm:

@Suuper Haha sketches have their own charm to be sure.

@NO1SY HEEEEYYY! Long time no see! Welcome back! Thankeee ><

@Manimal Thanks! I've been experimenting with colours so I'm glad you think so!


Update --

Did a little thing for fun of my character Shadow Child's (and my) experience with coffee.


Character (chibi), Ilayanne Lornn


Characters, Auth Lewes and Keltalyn Lornn

awesome animation!
I was expecting a hyperactive reaction but was not disappointed regardless XD
love the couple sketch, drawing any sort of interaction is a different skill as I'm learning painfully :P
love her frilly clothes!
