Anime eyes. The penciling isn’t bad but the brush pen remains a thorn in my side.
So I drew these traditionally about a year ago, and decided to revisit them digitally. They’re from Mark Crilley’s book “Mastering Manga” and I do see some improvement. If I can find where I put the old ones, I’ll post them too.
This is from the Manga book I was using a year ago. “Mastering Manga” by Mark Crilley. Highly recommend.
Wanted to re-attempt. It did feel… slightly easier? And it does look a little better than the original, but this one is digital as opposed to traditional so I’m not sure what impact that had.
Picture of my friend Kat Bolado as a superhero. From two different reference photos – one for the hair and face, and one for the pose.
Think I’ll make this a benchmark piece and redo it annually to see how I’ve improved.
So Becky Lynch is pretty much my favorite wrestler, so I thought it was appropriate that she be my first attempt at fan art.
I drew this at a measly 72 ppi, so I need to go back and redraw it with smoother lines, before attempting to color.
Note to self: avoid “web most common” as a document size.

So, this was all penciled and then inked with my new Pentel Pocket brush pen. It’s WAY more brush-like than the felt prismacolor I was using, so even really focusing it mostly did what it wanted. Still, room for improvement!I started erasing the pencil too early (hence the smears on the face) and I was oroginally gonna do some copic shading but wound up deciding against it until I see how they react with this pen.
