Other stuff from the Kuretake ai Liner review.
I’ve wanted to draw some proper art of Zeraora since its debut, but it seems like the specifics of its design just really clash with my style and preferred media. idk how I’d handle those stupid whiskers, but otherwise, the design basics are really similar to Zoroark, but canine heads are still easier to work with than feline ones for me even though I like cats better than dogs, lol.
Sprained my ankle at Sakura-Con. :V Read more…
A bunch of tiger doodles and a poor serval… I had an ink splotch accident on the reverse side of that page which soaked through onto its face. 😔
Stuff from the Graph’O review.
Didn’t turn out as I hoped, but happy to move past the starters and get onto the other stuff.
I’ve always been annoyed at how the yellow patch of stomach/chest scales moves around in the evos though. Of the starters, I think the Chikorita line turned out the best… probably because it was the one I cared the least about, haha.
Impressed with how well the point has kept on this brown Tombow Fudenosuke.
Annual batch of floating heads for ‘Souls RPG.
Related: guess what, that park isn’t an off-leash park!!
Gen 9 starter sketches… Fuecoco is the best one but it is hardest to draw. 😔 Sprigatito still feels like a lesser version of Leafeon to me, and Quaxly is what Ducklett should’ve been.
Pokemonathon sketches… having a hard time with Feraligatr line because they’re my favourites and I want them to be cool…
Y’all… oekaki boards are still a thing???
Pencils and inks from a recent commission, and then I promptly forgot to take photos of the finished thing, just the scan.
The person getting tricked by oncoming bike lights is me. The person yelling BEEP BEEP bombing down a hill is actually also me.
Art from the fude nib fountain pen review. Some of these are super old because I actually started that review a year ago, whoops.
Fullbody character commissions.
I reviewed the Denik sketchbook a while back. The tl;dr was that it has some of the best paper I’ve seen in a sketchbook since the Punctuate (RIP). I bought a bunch when they were on sale but then decided to go through the rest of my stash of Punctuate sketchbooks to tear off the bandaid of them being discontinued.
Stuff I found in my scans folder I don’t think I ever posted.
Hisuian Zoroark scribbles/studies for the previous… Still want to draw something cooler with this design. It’s not clear that those red things all over its body aren’t eyes.
I know vengefulness is among kitsune stereotypes, but it’s kind of a shame that Ninetales’s purported vengefulness was never highlighted much while Zoroark gets an entire alt form dedicated to the idea? Though I guess resentment isn’t quite the same as vengefulness. 🤔
Anyway, I really like Hisuian Zoroark’s design and don’t feel like I did it justice here, but it was nice to play around with the grey Tombow Fudenosuke for inking.
Bunch of Hisuian Arcanine scribbles from after the official design got confirmed… honestly, I think everyone’s guesses/hopes were much more interesting. Want to do a new scroll with this design, but am having a hard time making it work for me.
Watercolor effects with the Sakura Koi brush pens from the review.
Examples from the Sketchmarker Brush review. After getting a small sets for a bunch of other recent marker reviews and having a selection of colors to play with, it was kinda hard to go back to my usual “just a few colors” strategy of justifying for-review purposes.
Review coming Monday.
