Sword guy

Couldn't think of stuff to draw, so I went for "something I don't draw very often", and the first thing that came to mind was "men". This is probably the first guy I've ever seriously drawn, ignoring doodles. I guess he's reasonably correct (in terms of manly structure and proportions), although I was intending to have more personality in the pose, Guilty Gear or JoJo style, but it didn't materialise in the end...

His sword is apparently made by the Generic Props Company Ltd. It's japanese but totally straight, so he must be a ninja. The hilt is only big enough for one hand, even though the sword is enormous, so it must be made of space-age materials too. Also note how he wouldn't even be able to draw it, even though it's not strapped down or anything, so he's just wearing it as a declaration of his badassery to any would-be attackers. So much information just from observation!


This is my attempt at a Naruto.

And theres a bonus with it too! Enjoy!

fyi this is an old drawing...

Wolf and Moon

Backlog post 3


This time it's a nine-tailed fox.
It's a Japanese mythological creature that's known for its mischief.

In this case it's being mischievous by pretending to be a wolf and howling at the moon.

Sorry, I couldn't come up with any better excuse for why she has so many tails and is interested in the full moon...
Maybe she's just a nine-tailed wolf?

The plan is to clean up and colour this one eventually...

Fancy-pants demon

Backlog post 2

This is one I did during my commute.
Not exactly sure what it's about exactly, but it seems likable enough :)

Lately it seems I've been drawing a lot of scary stuff...

Hisashiburi backlog

Hey... it's been a while since my last post.

I managed to get busy with getting sick, moving, job, sudden computer death... basically everything happened at once. Needless to say I was unable to get stuff posted during this time. Of course, I kept my sketchbook with me and have been sketching the whole time anyways.

The result is that I have a whole pile of stuff I need to upload to make up for the missed days~

Now that my computer is behaving again the plan is to start to upload some of this stuff, and then try get back to my normal routine over the weekend.

China + colour

Bit quiet around here, lolz.

Finally got this coloured. Took me 5 separate sessons since
I got interrupted every time I started. 2-Colour shading is pretty nice, although I don't think I applied it properly on the hair... I still need to get a better 'feel' for colouring, too. But hey, pretty animu picture.
