SD Trash Compactor

Phew, this one took a while.

But I think it was worth it... maybe?
Oh yeah, I saw Speed Racer a few days ago, and it was totally awesome. I cried a few times because it was so awesome.
It was a true RACING movie. I think they tried to have a plot or something, but mostly it was about racing, and in that regard it was beautiful.
Also, when trying to guess who the movie was targetted at through the pre-movie adverts, they showed a YTV spot (kids TV channel) followed by a lingere spot. I thought it was pretty odd, but my friend figured it out: the ads were aimed at kids who came for the movie, and the moms who brought them.

Touhou 4koma - Marisa+Nitori

So, the Touhou 11, "Subterranean Animism" demo is out. It has Marisa + Nitori, giving Marisa the power of SUPER SCIENCE. This is awesome.

The other 5 partnership options in the game are pretty much the standard obvious fandom ones, which kind of leaves me wondering if ZUN had thought of them originally or wound up adopting them as fanservice? I don't really care about that (beyond Nitori), but what is good is that the mechanics they have attached to them are fun (as opposed to balanced - it kind of feels like 6 different gameplay modes, it changes so much. Personally I prefer it this way). I should play 10 sometime, which I skipped over out of apathy...

Er, comic-wise - I actually like this for once. Probably because it has robots. I like robots. It took a bit longer than normal, but considering that its fairly detailed, and I just made up the designs and poses on the spot, it was pretty quick.

Star Wars Scout trooper

In keeping up with SW theme. Here's a scout trooper! He looks kind of weird the more I look at him, but really fun to draw and good for practice. 

Touhou 4koma - China #4

Whoops, finished this one a while back and kept leaving it too late at night to be able to post it.

More China antics... pretty simple joke. Grabbing a prop from the BG is kinda cheap (especially when I've stopped drawing BGs). I think I'm getting the hang of the art, although I realised when I was toning it that I positioned it badly for a lot of the main colour areas (like Sakuya's blue frock).

2 more to go, although I still don't know what to do for the next one...

SD Obi espionage

More SD Star Wars.

Mostly focusing on background practice, so I'm choosing memorable scenes with a lot of perspective. Luckily there seems to be many of those :)

...I guess I still need a lot of practice with backgrounds.
