Fan-art Friday! – Mephisto Pheles (Blue Exorcist)

Hi everyone!

This Friday, I have been working on what will be my permanent avatar icon. And this is sort of like the finished pencil draft that it will be. Next week you’ll have the fully illustrated version, but obviously I didn’t have access to my tablet and computer to fully illustrate it on holiday. Either way, I’m pretty happy with this, and I hope you guys like it too 🙂 .

Tekkonkinkreet – The Minotour

And so, finally I can present to you my first ever ‘proper’ illustration, done using a nifty little program called Krita. It’s the Mitnotour from Tekkonkinkreet, a pretty cool character. If you haven’t seen it, then see it. It has mystery, lots of suspense, a feeling of nostalgia and inertia and a deep and layered plot involving change, moving on and a plethora of other themes.

Krita, the program I used to create this, is free and open-source, so if you, too, like to do your artwork on the computer then I highly reccommend this program as an alternative to programs like photoshop or Manga Studio. They all have their merits but this program is a nice all-rounder – one of the best that £0 can buy you :). It works with major graphics tablets like Wacom and my Huion H610 Pro, and is pretty powerful so you can do a fair bit on there.

Fan art Friday: Samurai Champloo – Pool Party!

Here it is! ON time (-ish) this time. I already mentioned this before but I’m still a noob at drawing, especially on a graphic tablet. It’s a whole different experience, really. I’m not that much better on paper but I can do it a lot more easily, ya know? Anyway, it was pretty fun.

If any of you guys reading this enjoy doing your own fan art, don’t hesitate to send me yours 🙂 – it’s nothing serious, I just wanted to share the enjoyment among other fans so it’s more fun 😛 .
