Manga Drawing - Morishita from Love Theory

So this is another character from the same manga that I wrote about the other day, called Love Theory. Her name is Morishita and she is actually a gamer in the that avidly plays Monster Hunter throughout the story.

I will probably do a few more drawings of my favorite characters from the manga. Thanks for reading!

Manga Drawing - Saki from Love Theory

So I recently found a new manga that I really like on CrunchyRoll that I really like called Love Theory. I really like most of the characters in the book, but this is the main love interest of the main character, her name is Saki.

Anyways, I really liked her and I decided to do another trace and keep practicing steadying my hands while drawing. Thanks for reading!

Anime Drawing - Lida from Rail Wars (Colored)

So the drawing I was working on is finished and i added some color. The point of these exercises are to help me steady my hand when I try to draw something. When working in 3D I can push and pull vertices until it looks good, but when drawing its different. I will soon try to draw something of my own since tracing won't really help me in the long rung.

That's all for now, thanks for reading!

Anime Drawing - Lida from Rail Wars

So not too long ago I finished watching an anime called Rail Wars. Its essentially a show a guy that really likes trains and wants to be a train operator/driver one day. One of the girls he meets in his job is the girl above called Lida.

Now I'm not going to go any further into details of the show, but I do have to say that I really like this anime and all the characters in it. I have decided to keep training and trace picture I found of her. I find that tracing is helping me understand the anatomy more every time. I will add color to this here in the next few days post another when I'm done. 

Thanks for reading.

Death's Mask - Pedestal Idea

So after starting this little project to make a replica of Death's Mask from Darksiders 2 I thought to myself that I needed something more than just the mask to make this piece really pop. My idea was to make some kind of pedestal, but I needed something that would make sense to the game and that would look cool. So that's when I came up with the idea above.

I'm going to give some back story to the game for those of you that don't know anything about Darksiders 2. I'm going to be as general as possible to not give away too much of the story for those of you who may care about spoilers.

The game is played from the perspective of one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, in this case you play as Death. On the fist game you play as War, but he was tricked into starting the Apocalypse and at the end of the game he is told that he will be punished even if it wasn't his fault.

Darksiders 2 if the story of Death trying to bring back all of humanity so his brother War is sparred. But in order to do so, he has to travel to different worlds in search of a way to revive all the people of the world. But there is a new threat that is slowly destroying all these worlds, its Corruption. This Corruption is everywhere you go, and it manifests itself looking like huge yellow crystals surrounded by black tar.

My idea for the "pedestal" of the mask is to make one of those spikes of Corruption and have Death's mask resting on it. And so far the render above is what I have. This is the first time I've tried doing rock/crystal in ZBrush, and its turning out to be a little harder than I thought it would. I will have to look at some tutorials and make sure that spike looks like crystal.

Anyways, that's all for now. If you haven't played the Darksiders series, I completely recommend it. Thanks for reading!
