Ink rev 302

It's been a long time, folks ! Hope you're doing fine 'cause I do.
I had some panzer dragoon that I couldn't finish. I managed to do it at the worst moment but nevermind it was fun :D
I'm still drawing a lot, and coming back on Gimp can feels strange after a long time :/ (wanted to go into blue and pink for once)

Nurarihyon no Mago

After I red 167 chapters (the whole thing for now)... I really think this manga got something, really story's cool but on top of that there's the whole atmosphere.

The whole manga is about "youkai", demons that appear in legends, they exist only through legends and appear in the real world because of people's "fear". People believe in them and so they can appear.

The drawing style is quite good (there are mistakes in the manga style sometimes but that's not a problem). Now the real thing is the atmosphere as I've already said : when it comes to "youkai" battles or just "youkai" presence, everything become foggy and "youkais" appear wearing keicho style clothes.

The fog in the manga are about dark/white clouds, like clouds in old legends from Edo; clothes/clouds/fights/characters design => atmosphere (that's a nice playing with ink I like that)

The main character got a serious look when it comes to fight, I'd like to draw some serious guys like him with da huge hair :D

Also I was kinda entertained when I saw they're making an anime out of it, fights are good to watch but that's definitely not the same. In the manga you got those nice black clouds especially in big fights; just having the hero avoid an attack is sooooooooooooo nice.

I wonder how they'll make it out in anime version but... wanna draw this so bad xD (wanna read the next chapterrrrrrrr)

edit : Anime is quite nice, the season 2 is awesome, didn't expect that, effects aren't the same but this is really nice !

Ink rev 301

Well if it's about characters I'll try to give good quality, but I just wanted to have fun and doodle japanese cherry blossom trees (?)

It's all because about that manga ... Nurarihyon no Mago, it's just a shônen but I like the whole thing, fights are cool, story's based on the japanese demons folklore : Youkai; and the hero got a huge white/black hair + red eyes.
I like those old stories about demons from legends, some got ugly faces, like on those japanese demon masks, but I won't draw those although I still like them :D

Panzer Dragoon series...

I just finished Panzer dragoon Zwei and Azel on saturn.
Those are just incredible games, epicness at every corner, gameplay, models, texture, music, animations, japanese speech, but there's one single thing in the game that pissed off... Translation.

Yes! Translation! Okay when it comes to technical words I can't understand all japanese words but I still can make the difference between "useless speech" and "serious speech".

Sometimes translations is just soooo wrong, I think I heard about 20 sentences which were really wrong :/
It's not important but hell... sometimes characters actually speak for nothing and translations just spoiled the following stuff o_O

Like ... What ?! Azel's last words "I love you..." bullshit ! She said nothing, she kept hesitating "I... I..."; or "Hide in that cave"
-Where ? Oh I'm here ! <<<< Whadahell he's suppose to say "oh...(surprised) sorry"
Or "It was the same for you and Atolm ?"
-Yes, and I miss him... <<<< WTF! Azel said "Yes but it's alright now"

Cut that crappy translations for some time...

And with this ending, who thought Edge would have survived ? he shouldn't but in Panzer dragoon Orta here goes => Orta = Edge and Azel baby ?

Okay okay dunno about the baby, but that would mean Edge survived in the end... wait what ?

Still I'd like to try and play Orta :/

Ink rev 300 "Say woot ?!"

Painting process. Nearly 5 hours spent.
Original painting 5000x10386 pixels
Check it on deviantart

I wanted to paint a face for practice, and the canvas got extended till I had to paint on something bigger...
I gave her boobs and smooth skin but she looked like a granny so I had to make her look younger...
and then I thought that colors were too simple so I gave her some warm shadows...

And now ... That's it xD


That piece wasn't hard, just slow, but details I put here weren't bad. I wanted something like that for the Ink rev 300. Now what's after 300 ? 301 right ?
My point is to get better with the time, better would mean : same or better render than 300 ?

Today feels good again... I hope I'll get even better. =')
300 images ... comme on dit, ça marche Clem xD

I'm going to roar or something

I just read the last chapters of the manga Berserk, like 6 in a row, and now I'm waiting for new ones.

I want to draw Guts, Caska, every single characters from the awesome serie, I wanna draw the badass armors, the weapons, I wish I could make some awesome action scene combine with fantasy.
I want to make all those things, and stop everything when a new chapter would came out... something like that.

Thing would be ... I want to make that right and not half ass job so ...

I'm drooling while thinking about Berserk ... hail Kentaro Miura

I was working on the whole character, but I chose the wrong pose and didn't fit with the head I drew :/

I kept on working in 211x232 pixels, doesn't really matter but I thought it was bigger xD

Ink rev 298

Always wanted to draw a cute girl or a girl; This time I didn't have any problem to practice, didn't have much ideas for the cloth since I wanted something "cute" and not "special" or too much "random" xD

Final comp is like that so nobody stare at the boobs (dunno why but they became like that instantly, first time it happen; I used to suck at drawing boobs, no seriously this is frustrating xD) or the unfinished hand, her face is rather nice with her pink hair on the white background.

Yeah I'm proud now ... Everything went fine, I didn't use reference and not much undo.. I'll rest assure this night :p

Took me about 1 hour I guess

Ink rev 291 - water colossus or life colossus ?

I don't know which one is better, with or without a look in the eyes :/ ?

Anyway here's another painting for practice ... Concept was fun and easy, didn't do much details, only values, saturation and hue to get the piece done.

1 hour
