Sadowloo future

Capcom's Cammy remixed in 30

I always wanted the next Street Fighter to take place further in the future. I figure Cammy would take over Shadowloo with her doll army.

I'm too tired this morning

Are you game?

FFVII's Tifa Lockhart in 45

I had meant for this to be 30 and I'm kinda reusing the pose from yesterday, but I wanted to start drawing hands. The second hand wasn't working so I dropped it.

Tifa was one of the first pugilists in an RPG that I remember playing and she is still one of my favorites.

She has Guile

Another late night remix.

This time Capcom's Guile in 45
I'm ready for bed now.

edit: Is it just me or are my night sketches tighter than my morning sketches. I guess it makes sense.

Call me Queen

Persona 3's Mitsuru Kirijo in 45 or so

I'm back from Seattle.
Just trying out some simple black and white.
I'm too tired for much else.
The red is taken from the trailer for Persona3 Portable.

I hope they translate this game soon (although its not out in Japan yet)

Cammy revisited

Capcom's Cammy

I wasn't too happy with that last Cammy pic I did. Too damn grumpy but I thought there was something there so I had a go at reworking it.

A few hours later and...

It felt good to do something more finished.

- Dan

PS No updates for the next couple of days as I'll be out of town. see ya

Lunch punch

Chie Satonaka from Atlus' Persona 4 in 30 (again)

Although I was going to take a break from these characters. I had the urge after a late breakfast.

- Dan


Just a bit of late night stress relief. One layer, one brush.

Don't pout

Persona 3's Yukari Takeba in 30

This morning went well. I just wanted to start making my way into expressions. I noticed with some of my drawings I tend to draw the same face.

While this one's not a huge departure from my usual it turned out alright. I'm also trying to focus more on the line

Some mornings

Capcom's Cammy in 30 or so

Damn she looks grumpy. One of those un thought about pics. I just couldn't think this morning. I think I got up too early.

Someone asked me the other day how I'm colouring at the moment. The colours are flat with colourized grey level for shadows with a linear burn blend. I find I like linear blend over multiply because it gives me more control over the resulting shadow colour

Blow me away

Main Character from Atlus' Persona3 Portable

I just read the news last night. Persona3 is heading for the PSP. I had to search every where for the new character.

I is one happy gamer!

This ones a speed paint I guess. Probably 2 hours

ninjin loves you yeah

Macross Frontier's Ranka Lee in 40

I said wanted to try something different. I remembered the song from the series and thought of this.

If you get the chance and you're a Macross (Robotech) fan, track down this series. I watched it on line. It's a lot of fun with some aewsome space battles (unlike Macross 7). The last battle is a 2 episode epic complete with deuleling songstresses. Only in Macross would that work.

I love fighters for some reason

Aigis From Atlus' persona 3 in 30

Good old androids with personality complexes.

Reminds me that I need to study hands. I had a rough idea of what I wanted, got a little lost on the way. Ended up confusing some layers. I'm thinking that 30 minutes isn't enough but then I remember that these are just exercises and I shouldn't worry so much.

Punchy white

Atlus' Akihiko Sanada from Persona 3 in 30

Well another pugilist for this morning's exercise. Persona 3 was an interesting game where the character's special attacks involved them shooting them selves in the head.

Kinda meh about the pic though. Seemed like a good idea when I sat down, maybe I'm just too tired this morning. Good thing this is just exercise :)

edit: I need to work on hands

Those thighs

Capcom's Chun li in 30

Though I may have out grown her she 'll always be my first video game girl.

Thought I try a harder brush for line this morning... and it fought me all the way. Probably partially to do with the pose to. Too early in the morning to be trying this.

Overall not bad, just less dynamic as I had in my head. I really need more time for something like this. It needs a strong foundation. Needs strong legs...

SNK/Playmore's Vanessa in 30

Another red head. For this mornings sketch I had the pose in mind and the character appeared as I was loading up photoshop. Nice when that happens. The colours came out a little strong but that could be just the contrast of the colour against white.

Vanessa is a King of Fighter's pugilist. She's got some great animations in the game. It's funny, I've always been a Street fighter fan but recently with Capcom going 3D with the series I find myself drawn to SNK's series. Especially with the new KOF being 2D.

Coloured Devil

Yuzu Tanikawa from Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor in 30

This morning I wanted to try colour so here we go. A quick sketch followed by quick lines, then flat colours with a grey overlay done with a linear burn. It worked out quite well and was quick to do.

I'm looking for buy a new DS game and it looks like this may be the one. If I pick it up I'll let you know what it's like.

Bear with it

Kuma from the Tekken series in 25

This morning I thought I'd try out some brushes and what better way than with fur. It really could be any bear but I had Kuma in mind when I started. Hey does this classify as a Canadian theme, you know a martial arts bear.

Finally some fantasy

Fran the Viera from Square Enix's FFXII in about 45

I've got a small thing for bunny girls. I don't know why but there you go.

I slept in the last few days, I've been pretty busy. In my head I started thinking that I'd draw in the evening or something. 2 missing days later I knew it wasn't happening. So I realized that if I want to really do this I've got to make time and get up.
