Minamoto Sakura Watercolor Chibi Art

I’m on episode 11(latest as of writing this post) of Zombie Land Saga. This is fan art is one of the main characters, Minamoto Sakura.

This idol show is not your typical idol show(most of the idol anime puts me to sleep, the character designs are where my interest starts and ends)

It’s funny, it’s emotional, it’s controversial, it has poor CGI moments — oh wait that’s not a selling point… 💧

Anyway, I had this grandiose image of what I wanted to paint. Sakura in conflict with herself in a mirror. Her zombie self, depressed and giving up, and her idol self, who she wants to be.

Then I realized my skill level and generally being an employed citizen of the world let me know I ain’t got time for all of that. I finished this on a Sunday evening, so lighting is poor in some shots I grabbed.

What do you think? Lol, I’m not sure why I’m asking as no one visits or reads this website. But in case there is an out-liar…

[Fanart Friday’s] Lazy weekend Gaia avatars.

I’ve been rather bored in the transitional period of my life. I have my Mac and my touchscreen laptop with me with limited internet connection(only on my iPhone).

So I kill time listening to music or listening to YouTube videos and playing around with art programs. Open source softwares used include Gimp, FireAlpaca, and Sketchbook by Autodesk for scanning.

Air drop has never been more appreciated. I was able to download FireAlpaca on my iPhone, air drop it to my Mac, then transfer it to my windows machine using a thumb drive. Obviously this is a lot of extra steps that a home internet connection would remedy but I’m in a transitional period.

Enjoy~

Topless Moe Harley Quinn[NSFW]

Yeah, no nips are showing.

There’s not too much to say about these except—- glarsh I love how it turned out!!

Well, aside from accidentally painting over over Harley’s hair on the side. When will I stop being so cheap and buy a bottle of.. well I can’t remember the name. It’s for watercolor to cover areas briefly. Too lazy to look it up.

Amigurumi Saitama and friends[Lookbook]

I think Saitama may be a ladies’ man. Watch out!! She’s more than willing to lead him sto tray from the hero realm– to the yarn store!!!!

I adore the details on him. It looks so spot on cartoon style!!

Saitama does not seem down with the whole friend selfie thing.

Yarn anonymous

A parody of the 12 step program for Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous. This is in no way shape or form meant to demean the actual steps of the program. I stand neutral on it. I literally copied and pasted and edited some parts. Hopefully I’ll find it humorous later on if and when I look back at it. And in that rare case that someone else other than myself stumbles upon and reads this, well know it’s for fun.

1. We admitted we were powerless over yarn–that our yarn stash had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. It’s known as Pinterest. Great for organization boards.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our wallets over to the care of our local yarn shop as we understood the power of 50% off all yarn purchases.

4. Made a searching and fearless visual inventory of our stash. Turns out, there’s a lot of fiberfill and half done projects there.

5. Admitted to our dearest loved ones, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. The bank account is in the negative because the thrift store had a huge suitcase of yarn for $25. We know times are tough and payday is Friday. But how could we give that up?!

6. Were entirely ready to have red heart remove all these defects in yarn so no more will yarn vomit exist at the beginning of a skein!

7. Humbly asked some dude person to remove the necessity of weaving in tails.

8. Made a list of victims our creations had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. Apparently, the cat is still holding a grudge on the yarn lion mane we made for him on Halloween. We’ll make the mane more majestic next year and we won’t take AS MANY pictures.

9. Made detachable manes to such cats wherever possible, except to that feisty one who killed our sofa leather. He will not be forgiven so easily.

10. Continued to take inventory of our stash and when we were wrong promptly admitted it. This time we told our loved ones of the trip the yarn store at dinner instead of a week later when asked how this $126 Michael’s craft supply bill on the bank statement happen.

11. Sought through meditation to improve our conscious contact with the blue skein of yarn we bought a year ago, as we understood our stash habits, praying only for knowledge of that we’d find it so we would have the power to carry out and complete that WIP.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we intend to share this message to other knitters and hookers and to practice these principles in our daily activities.

The curvaceous waifu Rem

Hi, Homura. I binged on Re:Zero the anime during my break off from college. First quarter completed with straight A’s. I’m proud of you, Homura! I loved Rem and decided I wanted art of her. So what better way to fulfil that desire art than to create art for her? So I drew her. Late in the evening. Close to my bedtime. I thought she looked slamming. Then in the morning, I noticed glaring issues with anatomy. “You’re a morning person, Homura. You can’t trust your own judgement at night.”

Anyway, I responded to myself “Homura, just accept the flaws in this piece. It’s neat anyway.” So I did. Here she is. I made her my wallpaper on my iPad. With this piece, I’ve gotten back into creating digital art. I had stopped for quite a long time. Only creating traditional pieces. 

Clearly, she wasn’t the only digital piece I enjoyed making.

Lately, I’ve had the desire to create some animated art. I haven’t  drawn animated art in probably half a decade or so.

Yeah, I know. What a neat way to spend your days off from school. Anyway, take care Homura and have a great week next week. Ace your quizzes next week and enjoy doing art~

A rad punk Miku look(watercolor painting)

You seem to replace your brain with your heart– oh wait… wrong singer. Miku is wearing a heart purse, it’s supposed to look semi-realistic but have an element of fantasy to it. That’s why on her shirt there’s no heart. We all know what’s inside of her purse as well– a wallet, cell phone, keys, yarn, leek flavoured bubble gum(wtf?), a crochet hook buried underneath a makeup travel bag, a water bottle, and a leek just in case someone decides to get smart with her. How does all that fit in her purse, you may be wondering? It’s the same logic as anime hair that defies gravity. I don’t know! Ask the animu gods!

Thankfully Miku is a master at travelling lightly, like moi. She refrained from carrying the kitchen sink in her purse.

Bonus Miku and Gumi art~

Jigoku Usagi(crossover art)

Another fan art crossover of Hell Girl(Jigoku Shoujo) and something else.

In this installment, it is Usagi Tsukino, better known as Sailor Moon.

I am liking this more than Jigoku Miku. Perhaps it’s the moon background.

Anywho, which crossover from Hell will I create next? Mwuhahahahaa– *chokes on leek*

Jigoku Miku(crossover art)

 

A grunge filter makes it look aged. Added creepy factor. 😈
I’m watching Jigoku Shoujo season 4 at the moment. I decided to draw Miku as Jigoku Shoujo.

It’s such a good show.

I’m really not accustomed to drawing my eyes in this style. It was a challenge which I can see rather clearly.

Still I love it. I was eager to use my new watercolor set as well. 🙂

Behold– a cat girl!~

Because the world could always use another portrait of a cat girl.~

I love how I colored her in greyscale colours.

I’ve never done that before. If I ever wanted to not have colour I’d digitally take the color away, using a desaturation tool on a photo editing software.

Fan Art Friday’s!!! Lucy Heartfilia Watercolor

So I’m boarding the transfer bus this fine Thursday morning to college. The usual. I bring my sketchbook with no prior plan on what to draw.

While I wait for the bus to leave the terminal I ponder on what I want to draw. I want to search the Pinterest machine to inspiration but my LTE/3G connection is shot at the terminal. So it’s back to good old fashioned brainstorming.

Yeah nothing. No plans or desires came to mind. So I just started doodling a body. Then I remembered the advice of how to draw: Step one: Using your pencil on the paper make some marks.

The idea to draw Lucy came about fifteen minutes later. Luckily I was away from the terminal and could go into the Pinterest machine to search for reference photos.

Moral of this blog post,

As it pertains to drawing, when in doubt– just draw oppai anything.

It’ll come to you. Maybe. Hopefully.

Hachune Miku grows up?! 

*Le gasp*
Such adorable is Hachune Miku. What if she had a manga face?!
Well it happened. Miku has manga eyes.

I have dabbled into using some new watercolor brushes. They hold water, which is great for travel.
Hint, hint, you should get some if you enjoy Watercolor or inking and don’t already own  a closet full of them.

Because everyone knows artists hoard art supplies. Wait, what? Only me? Those artist skeletons are unique to me.

Well then.

The Tama chan(Happy Fan art Friday)

Warning: Semi spoiler ahead after image itself. 


Reference photo




Fan art from series Magical Girl Raising Project. 


How would Tama look when she grew up if Swim Swim didn’t massacre her after finding out her true identity? She’s be a voluptuous shy grown Tama, still digging holes somewhere and hopefully avoiding Swim Swim.

The original watercolor painting will be available for purchase soon. My glossy sealer decided to run out today. How rude.

The final painting has a dark purple background, rather symbolic of the dark anime.

Thanks for stopping by~ See you next Tuesday for crochet related news!

Nemurin WatercolorFan Art

Fan Art Friday, y’all! Nemurin special!

Heads up, minor spoilers of the anime Magical Girl Project Raising in the blog post after the picture. So earlier this year I watched the anime Magical Girl Raising Project. I loved it. That means ah-bviously I must make fan art.

Okay, not really. I make fan art when I really love a character. How many fan art have I made of Sailor Moon when I almost despise Usagi wholly as a main character—but I love the color scheme on her outfits!!! That may explain the reason why I draw Sailor Scouts so often.

Back to the Nemurin. I liked her character. It was short lived. She is the first to die in the series. I already forgot what the details of how and why she died but it wasn’t a memorable as some of the others. I may make Snow White fan art. Fair warning, I kind of hated her. I hate her like I hate Madoka in Puella Magi Madoka Magica–love to hate their almost uselessness in the series but the end up being critical to the series. Bleh.

Anyway, have you seen this anime? Do you like it? Who is your favorite character(or characters)? Who is worst Kyuubey or Fav Fav? I think Fav is worst. His approach is more believable than and relateable, play a magical girl visual novel or game and chance becoming one in real life than his bunny-like counterpart he just comes to you and offers you a wish like a genie.
